Fantastic Villa for a Holiday
By Jess Negyal on 05-Sep-2018
We had a great time at Villa Christina. It is well-located, with beautiful views of the sea and it is easy to walk down to a couple of small beaches. The house is in excellent condition and is very well equipped (e.g. everything you would want in the kitchen). We all enjoyed using the pool, playing table tennis and the pool table was fun too. Everything was well maintained. Someone came to clean the pool every day, and there was also a daily visit from someone to empty bins / clean.
Christina and her husband were excellent hosts. Christina had prepared a meal for us for when we arrived so we didn't need to immediately head to the supermarket - very thoughtful of her. And the fridge was stocked with some food and drink, again to get us through the first day. Also, Christina took time the next day to give us a quick tour of Porto Heli, pointing out the good beaches, recommended restaurants, how to get to Spetses Island etc. She described it as good Greek hospitality which it certainly was!
There is lots to do in the area although we mainly spent time at the villa itself. Thank you for a very nice and relaxing stay. We highly recommend the villa for a holiday.
By Michael K on 07-Aug-2018
We had the pleasure to spend a week at Villa Christina - and it was just a great stay!! The villa is very comfortable, spacious, well maintained and at a great location close to Porto Cheli.
Fantastic (sea)views from everywhere - the house has several terraces with seats to enjoy these. Also our welcome was fantastic - the owner welcomed us with homemade diner, ready for us and, something we have not experienced before, a full fridge! Cake and breakfast for next day was also prepared... That for us was a real surprise and great way to experience the Greek hospitality...!
On second day owner invited us to show us around the area to point out the best restaurants close to the villa, best beaches and locations where to take ferry to Spetses and Hydra, but also where to rent a motorboat. We followed up on all suggestions - and these were great insider tips!!
The house was cleaned inside/outside on very regular (almost every day...) basis as well - which gave the overall experience a more hotel experience. Perhaps less cleaning would be better for privacy - but this is just minor detail.
Can only highly recommend this villa! We truly had a great week!

Hervorragende Ferien in der Region von Porto Heli
By Markus Van Dce Giet on 31-Jul-2018
Wir waren vom 7.-21. Juli 2018 in der Villa Christina. Ursprünglich geplant mit 8 Personen, aber aufgrund eines Krankheitsfalles konnten wir nur zu vier Personen reisen (2 Kinder, 2 ERwachsene). Wir kamen aufgrund von Flugverspätungen leider erst sehr spät in Porto Heli an, aber dies war gar kein Problem. Es war ein sehr guter Kontakt mit Christina (Vermieterin) die ganze Zeit möglich. Nach der Ankunft wurde uns kurz die Villa mit allen Besonderheiten gezeigt und es war ein wunderbares Abendessen und ein komplett gefüllter KÜhlschrank vorhanden, sodass man sich ersteinmal um nichts kümmern musste. Am nächsten Tag hat Christina uns die Umgebung mit den STrandmöglichkeiten auch gezeigt. Die Ferienregion ist gerade während des woche extrem ruhig. Die Villa liegt wunderschön auf einem Beranhöhe mit tollem Blick auf das Meer. Der Platz ist gigantisch und man kann dort sich mit 8 Personen problemlos sogar verlieren. Die Villa ist exrem gut gepflegt und täglich wird der Pool (der klasse ist) gereinigt und auch der Müll entsorgt. Die Villa wird drei Mal in der Woche komplett geputzt. Eigentlich wie in einem Hotel. Dei Villa kann man komplett klimatisieren, was bei Temperaturen über 38° durchaus vor allem in der Nacht sehr angenehm ist. In der Umgebung kann man viel machen. Wenn man ein bisschen Fahren will, so kann man Mykene, Nafplion sogar Korinth gut erreichen. Athen kann man sogar sehr schön mit einem Boot welches von Porto Heil abfährt erreichen. Wassersport kann man dort überall gut machen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es fußläufig in einem kleinem Ferienresort aber auch in Porto-Heli ausreichen, wo es auch Tolle Tavernen gibt. Insgesamt würde ich der Villa auch 6 Sterne geben, da dies wirklich ein toller Ferienort ist. Schon fast ein Geheimtip, da man in dieser Region keinen Massentourismus hat. Wir sagen Christina und auch den helfenden Händen Danke für so einen schönen Urlaub
Outstanding and a wonderful Villa!

Hey John and Christina
We were very happy and lucky to stay at Villa Cristina. From the first moment we arrived and met Cristina, we were warmly welcomed. Christina and her husband took us to the villa and after detailed explanations drove us on a tour of the area. Their recommendations on beaches, restaurants and in general, helped us during our vacation.
We were very excited to find a warm and ready home meal for us and the refrigerator was full of products, thank you!
We would like to point out that the villa and the garden around it including the pool and the barbecue place offered so many pleasant corners to seat in . We enjoyed eating our meals outside.
The villa was well equipped and ready to host us perfectly! Very clean and well maintained, even more than what we expect and saw in the pictures.
We were 8 adults and 2 little granddaughters and everyone enjoyed the vacation so very much!
We highly recommend the villa and we hope to come again.
Thank you John , Christina and the friendly staff.

Wonderful and so relaxing
By Cyril P. on 21-Aug-2017
Villa Christina is an amazing place to stay in Peloponnese.
We were 2 families in the villa during 2 weeks (4 adults and 5 kids from 5 to 11). We did not know about Greece and even less about Peloponnese. We discovered an unbelievable region of Greece with many sites to visit, nobody on the roads and nobody on the beaches, which is incredible in August in the Mediterranean basin.
The villa is ideally located walking distance from 2 nice beaches and surrounded by huge villas owned by Greek famous people (former king, boat builder, media tycoon). It means that you feel very secured!
The villa dates back from 2004 and is very well built with top 1 materials. The garden is so nice, as well as all the interior deco. It is the villa of Christina and it makes a big difference with other villas only for rental. In short, you feel at home.
John is very responsive to any questions prior to your trip. Christina and her husband helped us to reach the villa, prepared a very nice dinner for our first evening and drove us to the relevant locations the day after. The 2 persons in charge of maintenance and cleaning are also very nice with a daily presence. It is even better than in an hotel.
We strongly recommend this region of Greece and obviously this villa. After few days, we start to realize how lucky we have been to find villa Christina.
By Isabelle D. on 24-Jul-2017
We are 2 families who stayed 2 weeks in this beautiful villa.
We liked :
The delicious homemade meal offered on arrival
The exceptional view
The 2 terraces usable according to the time of the day
The location (close to the sea, the city and many walks)
The more than complete equipment of the house
Services included (cleaning more than once a week, cleaning of the pool every day)
The layout of the house which offers plenty of space
The garden very well maintained and flowery
The kindness of our hosts always available
No negative reviews. Everything was just perfect!
Not So Secret Hide Away
By Karen F. on 08-Jul-2017
While considering a review of the extraordinary Villa Christina, I was torn between a faithful recounting of our thoroughly pleasant stay there, or an obfuscation of the truth. I had mixed feelings because, in the spirit of self-preservation (for fear of boxing ourselves out of a future booking), we wouldn’t want to encourage others to experience this magnificent retreat on Greece’s Riviera. The truth, of course, won out.
Upon arrival, we were met by our gracious hostess who had thought of literally everything for our safe and unsurpassed week at our new home. Extras and amenities abound: a pool table, a wood-fired pizza oven, two outdoor eating areas, a pool overlooking the chapel, and so much more.
This was truly an amazing stay in an area that offers so much: extreme easy access to a multitude of charmingly distinct islands, a town with top-notch restaurants and facilities, walking distance to several beaches in secluded coves, and day trips to historic sites as well.
The villa itself is clean, spacious, well-attended-to, modern, and stocked with all the essentials for holiday merry-making.
Yes, we are now scouring our calendars, deciding when the next possible date would be for our clan to sneak away again to this secluded paradise with the stunning vistas. We highly recommend that you do the same; but please, keep it to yourselves…
Perfect and wonderful
By David O. on 16-Jun-2017
As experienced user of home rentals, it was of the best in many years. the hosting, the house, the facilities and the whole stay was perfect. we were 8 people including children and grandchildren and we all enjoyed it. it was beyond expectations.
A marvellous week in an outstanding Villa
By Tage R. on 19-Oct-2016
We were 8 people, four couples from Denmark, who stayed at Villa Christina for one week.
Absolutely everything was 100% functioning. High Quality in all Materials. Homeliness from beginning to end. Tastefully arranged in- and outside. Very, very well equipped.
Christina and her husband welcomed us and told us and showed us everything, we needed to know. The Villa was topready to host us. Food in the kitchen and many visits by the housekeepers, who cleaned the house during our stay. This was really extraordinary! It is not possible to mention anything, that was not OK. We can really recommend this Villa and the great views of the Sea.
Thank You for a wonderfull week. Hope to be back again.
A wonderful stay for adults and young children
By Louis S. on 23-Sep-2016
We chose this villa because we wanted to explore this part of Greece and as a base to relax with young children. On both counts it suited us perfectly.
The villa is comfortable and meets all needs. Our two families included toddlers enjoyed the pool area which is within sight of the outdoor seating areas and with a fence and non-slip matts was perfect for keeping little ones entertained while we had peace of mind they were safe at all times. They also provided a paddling pool that our baby enjoyed. It is ideal for young families.
Its a great location for visiting the local area and the big draws of Spetses, Hydra and Epidavros are reachable with an hour.
The villa is as good as it looks in the photos. Some things you can't appreciate from the photos. The kitchen has plentiful equipment, pots, pans, plates etc. you could ever need are all there. And the pizza oven and outdoor kitchen/barbeque is fully equipped and well used by us. Plenty of towels are provided. It is a blissfully quiet location.
The welcome and reception we received from Christina was a wonderful start to a very enjoyable holiday. Highly recommend.
By Marie M. on 02-Sep-2016
la maison est très agréable et spacieuse encore mieux que sur les photosavec vue sur la mer ;l accueil de Christina a été très chaleureux elle nous avait préparé une moussaka pour le dîner et tout prévu pour le petit déjeuner du lendemain ; la petite crique à coté de la maison est très belle et quasi déserte; possibilité de découvrir d' autres criques aux alentours les îles de Ptese et d' Hdra les villages d' Ermioni Galata et Nauplie et vister les sites de Mycene et Epidaure de superbes vacances nous avons passées
Merci encore Christina
Outstanding villa, fabulous hosts!
By Manfred B. on 25-Aug-2016
Wonderful -- this is the one word with which to characterize our recent stay at Villa Christina in Porto Heli! Two families, from Europe and the U.S., respectively, consisting of four adults and four teenagers, we spent a marvellous time at the beautiful, spacious and well equipped villa. If we have one regret, it is that we did not stay more than just one week at this fantastic place, with its stunning views overlooking the sea, its splendid terraces and gardens, its gorgeous pool and patio, its excellent recreational facilities and its comfortable living and dining areas. Villa Christina is every bit as beautiful and enjoyable as portrayed by the description and the photographs in the listing; if anything, they fail to do justice to the utter charm of the place.
The villa is big enough for 8-10 people to spend time together, but it also has many cozy corners that afford quiet and privacy. It is very well taken care of, and any issue that may arise is attended to immediately. The patios, terraces and other parts of the villa are cleaned every day, and the pool and gardens are looked after on a regular basis. WiFi connection is excellent, and there is private (lockable) off-street parking. Two small beaches are within easy walking distance, and it's a short drive to Porto Heli with its many fine restaurants and shopping opportunities.
Christina and her husband are such delightful and warm hosts! They go out of their way to make their guests feel at home and are very much concerned about their comfort and well-being. The initial meeting in Porto Heli, the prepared meal and well-stocked refrigerator that awaited us on our arrival, the private 2-hour tour provided by Christina the next morning, and her kind (and matter of course) assistance on several occasions throughout the week made us truly feel like valued guests and friends, rather than mere customers.
We would return to Villa Christina in an instant! We are convinced that other people would love it as much as we did, and we would recommend it strongly and without hesitation.
Thank you, Christina, for making it possible for us to have a wonderful vacation!
By Matteo F. on 25-Aug-2016
We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Villa Cristina! The house is huge, elegant, and very well equipped. The teenagers especially enjoyed the billiard table and the table tennis, and the pool was lovely too. The beaches nearby are beautiful and practically deserted when we were there. Cristina is a lovely host who made us feel welcome and was extremely helpful. Highly recommended.
Super villa and owners!
By Jean P. Nicolet, Canada on 28-Jul-2016
Just Super!!!! After a little confusion on the arrival date we were invited to a Taverna by the time they prepared the villa. They owner are exceptionally nice, they prepared moussaka and other delicious food for our first dinner. The villa is very clean, very well maintain, cleaning is done every day for the house and villa. Christina and her husband spent few hours to drive around and showed us the beaches, interesting sites, tavernas, etc. The villa is very well equipped, bedding, kitchen, etc... The view is great from the patio, great BBQ corner, really nothing to complain. Pool table, ping pong for the kids, nice swimming pool, wifi...
We were 2 families, 9 peoples (teen+kid) lot of space. The reality match the photos.
I strongly recommend!!!
A complete delight
By Rachel B. on 27-Oct-2015
Our welcome on arrival was lovely - Christina and her husband are wonderful, warm characters. It took a little while for us not feel guilty, with the cleaner coming throughout the week, but we soon got used to it and appreciated the wonderful service! It was a delightful place to make lasting family memories. Thank you again for sharing it.
By Lucy L. on 26-Oct-2015
We had the most wonderful holiday thank you, thanks in no small part to the fantastic villa. Christina made us feel very welcome, the food that she had prepared was delicious. It was lovely that the villa was kept so clean for us, outside the villa was great. The pool, BBQ and pizza oven were all well used and enjoyed. We considered refusing to leave! We felt that we could not have asked for anything more. It really is a beautiful area. We made the most of the lovely clear sea for swimming and snorkeling and enjoyed watching the boats pass by. So picturesque, to have all the islands and the headland in view from the villa.
Wonderful spacious villa with great views
By Ethne R. on 23-Apr-2014
Wonderful house with plenty of space. Special thanks to Christiana for the lovely cooked meals and stocked fridge. Very kind and it was some time off from cooking in the kitchen. Really enjoyed our stay here. We did find it hard to find the access to some of the beaches in our guide book!
