We booked a holiday at the last moment, asking for a Greek Island and somewhere quiet and relaxing. How lucky we were to find a cancellation at Garden Village. The Rep at the airport said how good it was, but when we arrived we were totally amazed. The setting was perfect, the studio was the best we have ever been in and Carol our host was just wonderful, how she remembers everyones' names is beyond me and she could not be more helpful. Thanks Carol from Chris and Christine Taylor

We have just come back from a week's holiday here . WOW ..it was fabulous.. I have never stayed in 'self catering' accomodation like it in Greece at all....so clean .. so well equiped... it was fabulous. The pool is lovely and the bar great too , doing some great food too... Carol and her team work extremely hard and you are made to feel very welcome.( we did a last minute booking ... I think we were really lucky as I can definitely see why this place gets booked up.). So if you get a chance... GO .. great location , great  weather and a fabulous place to have a wonderful holiday . We will definitely go back.

recently spent a fabulous 2 weeks here, have come back to uk and as soon as the holidays were released I was on the internet at 8am to book for next year.  The accomodation is with Thomson next year and I am really disappointed as I cannot book on a flight from east midlands.  I know is sounds stupid that I dont want to travel to another airport but I live less than 10 minutes from east mids so makes sense for me

to travel from there.  I am really jealous of those that manage to book it and hope you all have fantastic holidays which I know you will, however I liked Kalimaki so much so have have booked to stay at the Ionian Blue instead but will def pop to see everyone at Garden Village.

We are going back again this year for our 07th year in a row...Just can't get enough.

Carol, Victoria, Daniel and Nico (and whoever is behind the bar) always go out of their way to make it a fantastic holiday.
The apartments are beautiful and spotlessly clean, great location, quiet but within easy reach of everything.
 
Can't wait to be back xxx

Returned from Garden Village just recently (8-15th July) from our 6th stay there. It just seems to get better every year. Carol just can't seem to do enough for you. Poolside food is great - Tess & Nico have that part well in hand - thanks. We stayed in studios this time as there were 6 of us instead of the usual 4, they were immacualte & the cleaning staff did a great job - especially with one of our sons room - he's not the tidiest of people. Can't recommend The Garden Village highly enough.  P.S. Just watch out for airport - tea, coffee & a small packet of crisps cost us 10 euros & they don't display any prices until you get to the till.

Have just returned from Garden Village and all I can really say is WONDERFUL WONDERFUL WONDERFUL!!  Fantastic holiday Fantastic apartments Fantastic Carol.  The best place I have stayed made even better by meeting Jeanette and Gordon (hello)  I would recommend anyone to stay. whatever age whatever status you are made to feel so so  welcome.  Have tried to book again for later in the year but all booked up  Will be back next year though.  We were a party of eight with 4 15 year olds and we all loved it.  Carol and her staff are the best and nothing was too much trouble.
Anyone thinking of going........GO!

Thanks to everyone on this for their kind comments.  Carol & Nikos really do read this message board and love to hear that people had a great time with them.  Their email address is on the website if you want to get in touch with them directly.
