Villa Kathleen exceeded our expectations as we arrived, and after the hassle of flying with a one year old, the welcome pack of essentials (beer, wine water and teabags etc.) was very welcome indeed. It is a far better looking villa than the website photos suggest, indeed people would often go out of their way and stop by just to see/photograph it.
Set in an “out of the way” but not remote location, I would strongly recommend hiring a car while staying here. It nestles in the well established olive groves to the West of Lithicia, the villa is a recent construction with a traditional Zante (stone) finish. It has a number of balconies and terraces with excellent views of the surrounding location, a large garden and we certainly enjoyed the well maintained pool. Internally the villa is everything we hoped for, clean modern and spacious with all the appliances required.
As this is Greece “peaceful” is a relative term (goats, chickens etc. inhabit the surrounding groves) but settling down with local wine and beer on the front balcony in the early evening is a joy to experience, and later with the surrounding lights on the villa becomes the stuff dreams are made of.
We believed Villa Kathleen was very good value for money, and would certainly recommend it to friends who love Greece, the one reservation I have is that it raises the expectation for all future holidays in Greece to a very high level.
