Villa Medusa is perfect, Nikos the owner is lovely. 5 minute walk to the old village square, the food in the square is very traditional is good value, if you are there on a Monday it’s greek night if you want to eat a decent restaurant you will need to book 2 days in advance.

Really good
Overall a really good stay Nikos the owner is always there if you need help which we did on a couple of occasions one occasion in particular when my daughters room had no electricity within half an hour nikos had an electrician on site to sort the issue out and it was resolved very promptly. The location of the villa is quite rural but 600m from hersonisoss village with all the traditional tavernas which produced some amazing cuisine.

Cute little hotel, bit remote
Very nice hotel, we arrived late but the owner kindly left us a note and keys, room was up graded free of charge to a bigger sea view room due to our other room having a trchnical issue. Met the owner in the morning, very nice guy, very informative. The hotel was a bit remote with the only public bus station being a 30 minute walk away down a 60 road, the local town was very cute and had a shop near buy, the room was big and clean, bathroom a bit dated but definitely worth the price we paid!

Affordable perfection!
We stayed at Villa Medusa last week and it was amazing value overall! Really close to the beach but still in a quiet area, great view of the sea, and a nice pool to cool off. The owner Nikos was so helpful and he even let us stay for the day after finding out our flight wasn't until the evening. Highly recommend this hotel!
