About Villa Mia

'Mia' in Greek means feminine 'one', which we feel sums up this unique property. There is only one Villa Mia.

Near enough to easily walk to shops, tavernas and stunning antiquities, the Villa offers a private, solar-heated, 10m x 4m mosaic-tiled swimming pool, shady terraces, paved sun bathing area and roof terrace with stunning views for al fresco dining, so that you won't even need to leave the gated grounds to make your holiday one of peace, relaxation and solitude.

Both the villa and the pool are separately licenced by the Greek tourism authority (EOT)

For children...

Having two children of our own, we have deliberately designed the villa to be family friendly, and equipped likewise. A giant chess set allows shady games on the covered terrace alongside the pool. The main pool comprises two sections - one level area at 1.3 m deep in which to play ball games without risk of slipping down a slope into deeper water, and the other at 1.5m for swimming proper. We have kept the whole pool relatively shallow to ensure it quickly heats up and remains warm throughout the summer months. For this reason it is not suitable for diving.

Other child friendly considerations incorporated in the villa are :

  • Ample plastic and melamine cups, plates and bowls
  • Childrens' cutlery and drinking cups
  • Childrens' Toilet seat and step-up stool on request
  • Baby monitor
  • UK travel cot on request (may be small extra charge for linen)
  • Level gravel area for ball games, and basketball hoop
  • Nintendo Wii console and games in the lounge, plus Sonly PS2 and games in family bedroom
  • Exterior bathroom so youngsters with wet feet do not need to come into the main house for the toilet, avoiding the risk of slipping
  • Easy clean tiled floors
  • Mattress protectors on all mattresses, with set of PVC waterproof sheets available for extra security if required
  • Just a few minutes drive from a beautiful shallow, family-friendly blue-flag beach at Almyrida
Some of the baby & child facilities UK travel cot Play area including basketball hoop and door to outside shower/WC LArge gates separate the property from the quiet road

Please be aware however that the swimming pool is in close proximity to the accommodation and so may not be suitable for toddlers or very young children, and certainly not without adult supervision.

Eco friendly...

The villa boasts a number of eco-friendly facilities, including solar-heated domestic hot water, solar-heated swimming pool, low-energy lighting (including smart blue LED pool lighting), solar garden lighting and a solar-powered pool robot which cleanses the water and drastically reduces the amount of chemicals needed to keep the pool crystal clear, enhancing your swimming enjoyment.

For the less able...

For our older guests, or those with mobility problems, we have provided accommodation all on one level and have a number of aids available for use, such as raised toilet seat, shower stool and grab handles. There is one very small step from car park to main patio area, and steps of course to the roof terrace. Other than this, all rooms can be reached via flat level access. The easy access shower in the ensuite bathroom, at a width of 1.5m, enables a less able person to be assisted to wash, and there is deliberately no glass side panel to this shower for this purpose.

The villa is built on a large plot of land of 1200 sq metres with open ground to two sides yet with clear uninterrupted views across the countryside to the mountains and the sea.The property is set on the hillside above the village of Gavalohori and from the quiet access road the large iron gate rolls back to reveal a short driveway into the car parking area with ample parking for several cars.
