Villa Acrothea is a very stylish, interior-designed, refurbished villa in an elevated location with superb views across the village towards the north coast. The interior is incredible, when you descend the stairway to the downstairs hallway and bedrooms you could be in a contemporary museum. The large balcony area located conveniently off the kitchen has both a dining area and lounge chairs and is a great place to while away time, whilst taking in the sounds and sights of village life and feeling the cooling breeze. The outside pool and BBQ areas are no less stylish, though the only drawback is their access through the downstairs bedrooms. Kournas village is in a lovely location and the locals are very welcoming.

Management response:

Dear Richard, Thank you for your kind words and we are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, hope to see you again for your next holidays. Warm regards to your lovely family, Gaby

We loved our stay at the villa. It's a 10min drive from Kavros and georgioupolis is a few minuetes further along the coast.

The villa is very well equipped and had everything we needed for a luxury stay.

Gaby was an amazing host and she was really helpful during the run up to the holiday. She always answered emails promptly and she welcomed us personally, even though we arrived after midnight.

The villa is in kournas which is very small authentic village. It is very sweet with three local tavernas a few mins walk away. Our favourite was Kali Kardia. There's a small shop and bakery too!

Kavros has a few supermarkets - one on the Main Street and another in the back of the petrol station. There are many tavernas to choose from here too and georgioupolis has even more.

The kids loved the pool and we made good use of the BBQ area. We loved the villa so much it took us 5 days into our holiday to venture further than 10mins...

Thank you Sarah for your very kind words, we really appreciate it. We are very glad to hear that you stay at the villa was everything and more than you expected, and I'm glad the girls enjoyed the pool so much. I hope to see you again for your future holidays, our warmest regards to all of you, Gaby
