We stayed at Villa Christina May 23 -30 this year and had a wonderful time. We arrived very late as we were travelling a long way on our first day there and we had a bit of trouble finding our way in the dark, however we knew as soon as we opened the door that it was worth it. The villa is beautiful. and when we arrived we found a tray with everything we needed from a glass of wine to breakfast for the morning - such a nice welcome!! The pictures on the website were impressive but the villa in person was even better. We had plans to travel around the area and visit a few different islands however we found it very difficult to leave the villa. We enjoyed going to Vasiliki to get fresh bread from the bakery and meat from the local butcher shop - everything was so fresh and good and everyone was very friendly. The local farmers came around in trucks in the mornings and you could buy fresh vegetables from them. We visited the beaches on the west coast - amazing - and stopped at Panorama D'Athani for a wonderful lunch, the mousaka was perfect - the owner Thomas Robotis made us very welcome and the views - well - you just have to see them yourself. If you like lobster you have to go to the tavern in Sivota Bay - I apologize that I do not remember the name but it was the first tavern after the market and the first established in Sivota. When they say fresh they mean it - you net the lobster yourself!! Best lobster I have had. The rooms at the Villa were wonderful with high ceilings and everything was very modern and clean. Everything you needed was there. The caretakers were at the villa every couple of days to clean the pool or water the beautiful roses but we never heard them and only saw them if we were looking out at the view. The pool in a word was perfect and we spent a LOT of time there. It was so nice sitting there in the evenings and looking out at the sailboats in the harbour. I have no hesitation recommending Arodo Villas and would love to visit again - a week wasn't enough. Thanks for the wonderful holiday!
