The attractive villa Akis is constructed from local honey coloured stone and surrounded by well manicured gardens and terraces. Highly recommended, the property is elegantly furnished throughout and benefits from air conditioning and Wi-Fi. The Roman style private pool is set amongst the flower filled terraces and creates a relaxing and peaceful ambience for a relaxing holiday. The area of Argaka, features a variety of restaurants some of which are located by the sea.
A brand new dishwasher has been installed for 2017.

excellent service from rep and villa owner. We enjoyed the quiet location of the villa, excellent facilities and lovely pool. Local restaurants excellent value and quality of food. a superb holiday.
A request - to be able to add extra drivers to car hire on booking holiday rather than pay at destination. Price of air con in the villa can be expensive as charged for whole holiday rather than amount used.

This was not our villa of choice, the villa we had booked became unavailable. Having said that we had a very good holiday, the only thing missing was a sea view. The villa could do with an update inside, but as the weather was excellent we spent all our time outside.

This is our second time at Akis and it is wonderful there, very private. The pictures do not do it justice, the pool is fantastic very easy to get in and out of, when you have mobility problems like me. We will be back in Argaka next year and will try to book Akis again.

Villa Akis. Nice villa with excellent location not too far of the beaten track. Short 15 minutes walk to the beach and excellent restaurants. Villa akis is a little bit old fashioned with its decor however it is in good condition. Kitchen crockery can be doing with a change out as not enough side plates for a larger group. Kitchen knives were in a serious need of sharpening or replacement. The gardens are lovely and secluded. Surrounded by orange groves and lemon trees. The electric toaster was defective we contacted James villa to report this and they dully replied back to say the owner would replace the toaster which they had by the time we returned to the villa . Top notch response from villa owner and James villa. On previous post people had complained about dogs barking. This is actually insane the amount of noise from dogs in this area. They bark and howl all through the night. It's as quite as a church through the day.But the noise through the night is terrible. Dogs howling Cats crying Pidgeons on the roof. Seriously this is something that the owner has no influence over or I'm sure it would be resolved. If your wanting peace and quite in the evening this is not the location for you due to the dogs howling and barking most of the night. As the temperature raises in the evening then the air con will be running which will drown the noise of the dogs etc. Outside barbecue area is nice but very disappointed it had not been cleaned prior to our arrival and previous guest had left load of cigarette but ends in it which I found disgusting took me a couple of minutes to clean this. It does say the cleaner does not clean the barbecue in the information pack and asks people to clean this prior to leaving. It did not happen. Please do not let this post put you off using this villa. We would return to this villa in a heartbeat. This was a last minute booking and was excellent value for money. The owner even allowed us to stay on for a few hours more at the villa on the day of departure which made a huge difference to our departure. Very much appreciated this kind gesture from the owner.

Generally very happy, the exterior space is less covered than on our previous trip due to foliage being cut back and the one serious downside is the continual barking of dogs in the surrounding area. This continued all night and only the air conditioner running drowned them out. That being said apart from the dogs it is very peaceful and relaxing and would recommend if you want to get away from it all with the locals bakers 5 minutes away where you can get very tasty treats.
