Maria deed er alles aan om ons een warm welkom te geven. Het is een prachtig huis op een prachtige locatie. We vielen stijl achterover toen we aankwamen. De advertentie beschrijving klopt, maar het is eigenlijk nog mooier. De villa ligt op een 12000 m2 grond waar olijfbomen op groeien. Mooi niet al te groot zwembad. Nikki de schoonmaakster kwam na drie dagen het huis doorwerken en gaf ons schoon beddengoed en handdoeken. Er zijn twee honden maar die zijn alleen maar lief. Geen last van. Ze mogen ook vast.
Het strand van Loutraki is een aanrader. Evenals het restaurant aan de weg als je naar beneden loopt. Tip is ook om naar Nafplio te gaan. Het mooiste dorpje van Griekenland. Schitterend. Prachtige stranden en een Venetiaans ingericht dorpje. We waren met 14 vrienden, we maken nogal wat geluid maar dat was in dit huis en deze omtrek geen punt. De huizen staan een flink eind bij deze villa vandaan. Kortom niet twijfelen maar doen!!
