Tots Exclusive Family Deal
Prepare yourself for a child-friendly beach holiday at Panorama Villa, which has incredible views across bamboo fields to the stunning sea nearby.
Arillas village and beach and Agios Stefanos are just a short drive away, so there’s plenty of choice for soft sands and shallow waters.
When the little ones are finished making sandcastles, you can grab a bite to eat and head back to the villa for an afternoon nap, ready for a busy afternoon by the pool.
Inside, the villa is on one storey with a traditional design and an easy and convenient open plan living area.
Step out onto the beautiful enclosed veranda to make the most of the Greek sunshine; out on the terrace, the family can lounge and play in the comfy seating area, or dine alfresco, with plenty of choice for sunny and shaded spots.
Head through the secure gate and down the steps to enjoy the large garden and pool area, with plenty of grass to laugh and play on.
Play in the sun or relax on the sun loungers then cool off in the big pool, which has child-friendly roman steps and a shallow end, so the family can splash about together.
For evening meals, you’ll be spoilt for choice between delicious restaurants and tavernas in the nearby Arillas village or at Agios Stefanos, where the relaxed Greek culture is very welcoming to families.
If you're travelling with another family, take a look at Paradiso Villa, which adjoins Panorama.
Please note: Although the maximum occupancy is six plus two infants in cots, it may be a squeeze at that number, and a larger villa may be more suitable.

The Stanton Family, July 2014
We can't recommend enough the professionalism and helpfulness of the agent to anyone wanting a wonderful holiday in Greece which is where we were. On arrival Richard looking after Arillas along with Beverly were incredibly helpful. Villa was ready on time everything was spotless and clean. Even a hamper was there on arrival to get you started. There is a very helpful book to use for all information for your holiday. Beverly came and introduced herself to us when we arrived and she is always at the end of the phone for any questions or queries. Thank you for such a great holiday that we will always remember.
The Scaife Family, June 2014
This was the best managed holiday I've ever experienced. I don't normally spend time on post holiday surveys but I'm happy to provide feedback to reflect the detailed, proactive and personal approach that has been present from day one of this booking through to our departure for home. The location and quality of the accommodation was exactly as described, local support was always available but unobtrusive. The only problem is that this year will be difficult to improve on!

The door to this single-storey villa opens into the open plan living area, which has cooling tiled floors and exposed wood beam ceilings.
It has a welcoming traditional feel with comfy seating and a television to play your favourite DVDs on.
The kitchen is fully fitted including a dishwasher and there’s a wooden dining table. You can choose to eat in here or wander out through the patio doors and onto the terrace.
To the left of the living area, the corridor leads through to the master bedroom, which has a light and airy feel with tiled floors and doors out to the patio. This double bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a bath, an overhead shower, loo and wash basin.
All of the bedrooms have shutters to make the room completely dark at night, as well as mosquito screens and air conditioning, so the whole family can have restful sleep and maybe even not wake until after sunrise.
On the other side of the living area, you’ll find the two twin bedrooms and a shared shower room. Both bedrooms have plenty of room for a cot and the front twin room also has doors onto the balcony.
From the living area and two of the bedrooms, you can step out onto a large balcony terrace, which is private and enclosed.
Out on the terrace, there is plenty of comfy seating and shaded areas where the whole family can relax or play; the dining table gives you the option to enjoy your meals alfresco, while enjoying the warmth of the sun.
A gate leads down to a lower level, where the pool and garden can be found.
There are lots of steps down and the garden is not fully enclosed, so little ones would need supervising when playing down here.
On this level, there is a large lawn with bamboo fields at the end of the garden and plenty of trees for shade.
The big pool has a shallow end with wide steps leading down; little ones should feel comfortable to splash and play here.
Poolside, parents can enjoy the sun loungers and parasols and there is gated access down to the pool room.
At lunchtimes or in the evenings, the whole family can enjoy gathering for barbecues with the big built-in barbecue.
The local village of Arillas is just 900 metres away from the villa, or a 15 minute walk along a winding bumpy track; in our experience, this track is not suitable for pushing a pram or a buggy so it would be much easier to take the children in the car than to walk.
The village has retained its charm and character and there are lots of small family-run tavernas and shops.
Arillas Beach is ideal for families, and so convenient from the villa. It is very quiet with soft golden sand and shallow crystal waters.
When the little ones have finished making their sandcastles, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from nearby.
Thalassa, on the beachfront, has a variety of food from traditional Mediterranean and Corfiot food to vegetarian meals and healthy green smoothies. Don’t miss their delicious homemade desserts, either.
Their dishes use fresh herbs and vegetables from the garden and their homemade chips are incredible. Sit at the seafront to enjoy your meal and you’ll have beautiful views of the bay.
For more of a casual meal, the whole family will love the Arillas beach point barbecue restaurant, which is both cheap and delicious.
They serve everything from freshly prepared salads to delicious gyros, pizza, kebabs, baguettes, toasties and burgers, which you can enjoy there or take away to eat on the beach. They also have a great range of ice creams, if you fancy a treat.
In between Arillas and Agios Stefanos beaches, Akrotiri Café is unmissable. The child-friendly restaurant offers beautiful views across the whole bay.
It can be a bit of a trek up the hill, but the view is worth it, especially at sunset; you can also drive up to save aching little legs.
The café serves a delicious range of foods, including pizzas and paninis, and they also have great cocktails so you can enjoy a treat.
Agios Stefanos is 1.5km from the villa. It is walkable but takes around 30 minutes, so it would be easier to drive there with a buggy and little ones.
The mile-long stretch of beach is brimming with golden sands and shallow blue water, with a backdrop of olive groves and gentle rolling hills.
The town is a bit bigger than Arillas with a supermarket as well as gift shops, bakeries, bars and music cafes.
A great choice of nearby restaurants includes Chilly Chili, which serves delicious Mediterranean food and lovely cocktails with a friendly atmosphere.
Head to Zorbas restaurant for a true taste of Greek culture. Little ones are very welcome here and they’ll love the dancing.
