"The accomodation was absolutely fab - no criticism at all & we all loved it. Please pass on our compliments.
Your manager was also great getting us in early as we had to abandon the boat at 9 on the Sunday.
We love Lefkas as well although Nidri is the least nice bit of the island to be honest but that doesn't matter when you are up in the hills.
We ate at Dimitris Taverna in the village a few times which was great and went to Bills Bar once which was a fabulous experience."

"We had a wonderful holiday, thank you. It was the first time that all of our extended family has had a holiday together and the combination of discovering that we could all get along marvellously, together with your beautiful villa with its glorious views resulted in the unsolicited feedback from young and old alike that "it was the best holiday we've ever had". We (various party members) were so impressed that we will be making enquiries as to the availability of the villa in the future. So a big thank you for providing a villa that not only met our expectations but exceeded them."
