Occupying a wonderful hillside location, this charming one bedroom villa boasts stunning views over the tiny port and bay of Piso Aetos, across the Ionian Sea to Kefalonia in the distance.

The villa itself has been comfortably furnished throughout, with the main living accommodation offering an open plan layout with high wooden ceilings, giving a lovely airiness about the villa. Outside, spacious terraces surround the villa and swimming pool which provides a built-in barbecue and dining facilities, ideal for alfresco dining. A host of tavernas, shops, mini-markets can all be found in and around Vathy, however, there are some local tavernas which can be found in the neighbouring villages.

Have now returned from my third visit to this charming little retreat - whilst the washing machine is a brand new gleaming unit, it has little interest to me as a a lone traveller in the late autumn of my life - I was extremely disappointed to see that the wi-fi box has now been removed and also the comments book - all looks a bit like there has been a minimalist approach from possible new owners? The grounds are looking a bit unkempt and overgrown, and the trees and bushes are in need of a selective lopping as the former wonderful view is being increasingly diminished - the pool has a new pump and is as usual beautifully maintained - the pump and filter covers are becoming damaged and protruding hold-down bolts are a hazard however. The two setees in the lounge remain as hard and uncomfortable as ever, but look nice (!) Overall, it looks a bit like it needs a little more TLC from the owners point of view considering it is not cheap - this is a shame, as I would like to remain a return visitor for at least a couple more years.

My holiday at Piso Aetos View is perhaps the most relaxing holiday I have ever had! It is so peaceful and the views from the terrace are breath taking. Peace is only broken for a short time twice a day when the ferry arrives (which you see clearly from the terrace) but I found looked forward to it's arrival. The island is beautiful but go there for peace and quiet and beautiful scenery and not the high life!

We fell more and more in love with Piso Aetos View as the week went on. The villa is simple but has everything you need and the views from the terrace and the pool area are fabulous. There are a couple of times a day when there is some traffic noise when the ferry arrives and leaves which we expected, but it only lasts for about 15 minutes. For the rest of the time it was so quiet and peaceful we could have been the only people in the world.

The view from the villa is stunning across the sea to Kafalonia perhaps some additional screening could make the villa more private. In august the traffic especially for the afternoon ferries is heavy all parking up along the road above the villa, leaving the engines running for the air con and and having a crowd peering over the boundary fence can be a little disconcerting. But apart from the ferries four times a day, the location of the villa is peaceful and you can hear the waves on the shoreline Air con in the lounge was ineffective, but the bedroom worked well coping with extreme heat. Pool and villa cleaned to good standards, and equipped to adequate standard. Good location for easy drive into Vathy and the rest of the island
The transfer arrangements from the villa to the airport at the end of the holiday, are in need of serious review, the nightmare this entailed has completely marred all our positive thoughts of the Villa and the holiday overall.

We loved this villa last year. Location is excellent but facilities would benefit from a little tlc. We had a few issues with air con and cooking facilities, although the addition of a washing machine was a bonus. Since last year the ferry schedule has changed which makes a morning departure a challenge. As a result we left a day sooner in order to make our flight home. Still a very peaceful place for a holiday but would recommend a later flight for any future occupants

Superb property, but our first week there was dreadful. Wasps. Not just visiting ones, but a nest in the air conditioner, so we woke up on our first morning to a house buzzing with dozens of wasps. Wasps drinking from the aircon condensation outside and on the puddles of water there. Wasps drinking at the swimming pool and landing on our bodies to drink when we left the water. Wasps buzzing around our ears and body, on our swimmies while we were sunning ourselves - my wife was stung three times while trying to have a relaxing holiday. Eating or drinking outside was absolutely impossible - so much for the James reference to alfresco meals. No way! Once the nest was sealed, they built a new one in the roof tiles, and the torment went on. The James agent was helpful, the response from James head office was pathetic. By the time the owner had dealt with that, and had supplied numerous wasp traps, I had already bought aerosol killers, climbed ladders, zapped the nest twice, and we were into our second week there. The traps collected hundreds of corpses, and the wasps kept on coming. This infestation ruined our stay, and tainted our appreciation of the property's fine facilities, so much so that I would not recommend this place for a peaceful stay. Interestingly, on Kefalonia (and indeed elsewhere on Ithaca) there were wasps, but we were able to eat outside without being pestered and terrorised.

James Villa Holidays,
We're sorry there was a number of wasps found during your stay and appreciate how frustrating this would have been. Prompt action was taken and we're pleased no further problems have been reported.

Perfect position, ideal size for two people, comfortable bed, fantastic views, peaceful. Fun to watch the ferry arrive below twice a day, typical Greek ferry chaos, but never intrusive. Outdoor area all well laid out...the sun awning was welcome in the heat of the afternoon although an extra parasol would have been a bonus. We absolutely loved this villa.

Good location overlooking the sea,just off the ferry, which runs 2/3 times a day, although there are other private taxi ferries but they were not intrusive. Villa facilities good but addition instructions would be helpful, e.g. How to disable wachine machine lock, how to reset consumer unit if trip switch operates. Pool area nice but wasps are an issue on Ithaca as they congregate wherever there is water, e.g. Pool edge, air con overflows and they can be a nuisance. Mid week clean was good although on arrival certain items had not been cleaned from previous guests, coffee still in machine and microwave plate overspill. Perfect location for a quiet peaceful week, close to Vathy which has good supermarket and many good places to eat. A couple of scenic beaches with sun beds/parasols Filiatro and Poli the latter having small taverna, but take beach shoes as pebbly into sea. Kioni def worth a visit

Second visit to this idyllic location. It is without doubt the best holidays my wife and i have experienced . Two weeks was not enough, so next year we hope to book three. If you want solitude but not far from amenities then this is the perfect place to go. 10/10

My husband and I absolutely loved this villa, we spent a week there at the beginning of May, the weather was glorious! Although the pool was a little chilly we still swam every day. The villa is lovely, especially the outdoor space, we spent most of our time outside enjoying the amazing view. Apart from 15 minutes twice a day when the ferry arrives it is very peaceful. We visited more or less everywhere on the island and did a couple of lovely walks to Arethusa Springs and the Nymphs Cave. We would definitely recommend this villa and James Villa Holidays.
