”It was even more beautiful then on the pictures and the house was a wonderful place to stay in, even for the few rainy days we had. The teams communication and response on everything was quick and helpful. We had a wonderful time. Thank you Carolina, Alfonso and the Freelance-Villas Team”

More beautiful than pictures

Alexander P - Oct 2020

Thank you so much for a fantastic stay, your villa exceeded our expectations by miles! Thank you also for being so friendly, professional and efficient through out your communication with me. Hope to stay at one of your Villas in Kefalonia again. Best wishes, ketzie and family.

Villa exceeded our expectations

Ketzie H - Oct 2020

Wunderbar sauberes Haus. Man ist ziemlich für sich, da die Villen an einem Hang liegen und man keinen direkten Einblick zu den anderen Häusern hat. Soweit ist das Haus gut ausgestattet. Der Pool ist sehr sauber und wird regelmäßig vom Personal gesäubert (jeweils ca. 3 Minuten). Kommunikation und Bezahlung war problemlos. Wir haben uns während unserer Zeit dort sehr wohl gefühlt

Wunderbar haus

Jacob - Oct 2019

The Villa is light, cool, very spacious and decorated to a high standard. It is ideal for multi-generational groups – every room has a balcony, the beach is within easy walking distance as well as several restaurants with a pool (Piato was our favourite), the area is very quiet and peaceful while the shops and bars in Chania town centre are just a 10 euro taxi ride away. The Freelance Villas team are very helpful and efficient – for example, they sent us an email announcing a change in local Covid-19 rules before even the Cretan authorities texted us with the info.

Just what we needed

Jill - Aug 2020

The Villa is spotless, the sea view fantastic. The property is large, the pool always clean and warm – and from everywhere you can see the sea (and the sunset). Due to the size and the greenery also very private – no neighbour can see directly on the house and the pool – it is all very well laid out. The cleaning staff and the pool service were fantastic and anxious to do their job quietly and quickly – thanks again! Also additional blankets and pillows were ready. Wi-Fi works well in the house. The water was very clear and perfect for snorkelling. A sandy beach is also only a few minutes away. You can park but anywhere on the island free and close. We were completely satisfied and relaxed – also thanks to the nice contact! Highly recommended Villa for those looking for some peace and sun and sea 🙂

Mallorca Villas with Pools

PERFECT!

Judith C - Aug 2020

This is the first place that we have stayed where the photos did not do full justice to the setting. It is the most peaceful setting we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Peace and tranquility. The sea view was magnificent. We had sunrise in the morning followed by moon rise in the evening. All we could hear were goat bells and birds while watching yachts on the ocean. The Villa was perfect. Diane, from the freelance villas team, made it all very easy for us. We had an exceptionally lovely stay

Sea view was magnificent

Sue G - Sept 2020

We cannot give enough positive reviews! This beach house is lovely, spacious 3 bedrooms and a large back garden with outdoor shower, balconies and large main living space. The location is PERFECT. We walked daily each morning to get coffee at the local cafe, then to one of several beaches during the day, and often walked to a taverna (many to choose from!) in the evenings.

Diane and the Freelance team were so quick and helpful with their responses…they are the best! We are already dreaming of coming back again!

Dreaming of our return

Carin - July 2020

Wnętrza robią o wiele większe wrażenie niż na zdjęciach. Cudowny hiszpański klimat. Ogród i widok zza okna robi ogromne wrazenie. Pan Francisco bardzo sympatyczny , przynosił nam owoce ze swojego ogródka i jajka od kur. Lokalizacja obiektu super, wszędzie blisko. Okolica spokojna i cicha, idealne miejsce do odpoczynku.

Cudowny !

Paulina - Sept 2019

 Wow, what a view!! It is absolutely stunning! The perfect location to sit and enjoy the sunset each evening with a glass of wine. The villa is spacious, clean, light, bright and well equipped with all mod cons. It is located on a peninsula, along an authentic track which leads down to the sea. Spartia is the nearest little village. There are approximately four or five local tavernas scattered around the local area, approximately three mini markets and a church. If you’re looking for a rural and quiet location this lovely villa is perfect for escapism, tranquility and relaxation. The Freelance Holidays Team are superb. Always prompt to answer a query. Their motto is to report it so they can sort it. They are true to their word. Quality villa. Stunning views. Relaxing location. Top customer service.

Absolutely Stunning !

Samantha L - Aug 2020

A stunning location, the views were more amazing than we could have ever expected. Genuinely magical. A view you could never get bored of. The villa and especially kitchen was full of all the amenities you could need for your holiday. Even the BBQ area had everything. The pool was beautiful and clean. The villa was also so clean, Alexandra was so lovely and helpful. Plus Diane who was on hand to assist with any and every question we had. The team were fantastic and swift in response. So close to the local village and beautiful Fiscardo – buzzy beautiful location. Genuinely couldn’t recommend this place any higher. We gutted to be home – miss it already and 100% will be back. Thank you all

Genuinely Magical !

Lopez Family - Sept 2020
 

Staggeringly beautiful – that about sums this place up. We had a fantastic week in Villa Odysseus. The view is unforgettable with Cephalonia and Lourdas Beach facing you in one direction, then open sea and Zakynthos in the other. A small army of cleaners came from time to time to keep things looking great. The beach at the foot of the hill is volcanic rock and there is some excellently rewarding snorkelling to be had. I hope to return one day.

Staggeringly beautiful

Alex - Aug 2020

Tous les équipements nécessaires disponibles. Séjourner dans cette maison a grandement apporté à notre séjour en Crète. Nous recommandons absolument. La communication avec les personnes gérant la location a été facile et les explications très claires. L’entrée et le départ se font très aisément

Villa exceptionnelle. Vue magnifique

Anna - Sept 2019

The villa is beautiful and maintained very well. It was sparkling clean and we were welcomed the moment we arrived. The pool and sea views are absolutely stunning. The pictures do not do the villa justice. We would love to come and stay again!

Great villa, fantastic pool (also for children), amazing sea view, perfect and nice communication with the freelance team. Everything very clean, during our stay we felt very comfortable and did not miss anything – just a great place to relax!”

Fantastic holiday

Dagmar - Oct 2020

The Freelance Villas on the Spartia peninsula are an excellent option, close enough to Argostoli and secluded enough to feel truly in the original charm and splendour of coastal Kefalonia.
