Hi I'm new to this so please excuse any errors, We are due to fly out the first week in September staying at the Villa Mary, since booking a very bad review was posted do you know if things have improved? Can you tell me if any of the villas nearby provide meals for non residents. Thanks

Hi,
I wouldn't worry about one bad review. There is always someone who will not be happy and is content to complain. Some people make a hobby of it. 
There are plenty of good reviews for this property. Smile

Thanks Elliemay, I don't usually take notice but their has not been a single review since Dec 2011. Any advice as to where we can eat at the top of the hill. We are self catering but we never do!

It was on tripadvisor I saw the review. Can anyone advise us on eating at the top of the hill,  from what I have read the hill is pretty steep and we don't want to be going up and down too many times a day.

Hi,
 
Most of the restaurants are on the road to the beach or the beach front so not really anything up by the Villa Mary although the Aloha might be an option. 
 
We haven't visited the village yet this year but I'm sure you'll have a fabulous time, the views up at the Villa Mary will be fantastic.

Hi - we stayed at Villa Mary a couple of years ago (the basement twin room) and loved it. The views up there are breathtaking. No restaurants really up on the hill though (there is a supermarket almost opposite) - you do need to walk down into town (unless you have a hire car handy). We have only ever stayed up on the hill (to be away from the hussle & bussle) but walk down to the village for dinner each night. It's not that far and makes you work off your dinner! Difficult if you have mobility issues, but there's always taxis at the bottom of the hill.
Have a great time - I'm certain you will.

For snacks at a very reasonable price there is Lido Sophia just a little down the hill. Exactly opposite is the Mini Mart outside Mazis Appartments, it's open ALL HOURS. Thumbs Up

I'm not sure where Villa Mary is but as for the comments that there is nowhere to eat at the top of the hill, what about Steven's on the Hill? Is this the hill that's being referred to.  We got back from this hotel in the early hours of Tuesday morning and can highly recommend Steven's snacks and meals.

Wrong hill Shirley!! Villa Mary is almost at the top of the hill on the way to Sinarades...

Ah, sorry.  I thought I'd read somewhere that Villa Mary was close to Stevens on the Hill. I know where you are now, having passed it whilst out and about on the quad bikes.

I enjoyed the Villa Mary although it was a few year back. I didn't find the hill too much of a problem and that was with a baby and toddler in toe. As has been mentioned, the views are great and a good opportunity to take some pics and there is a market right next to the property for your supplies. Enjoy your holiday and make the most of it as I'm sure you will love AG.

Hi All!
Have just returned from AG, I had a fabulous time as promised, Villa Mary was great, it is basic but we had no complaints the hill could be a problem in the future as I'm no young chicken but discovered an easier way down two days  before we left. Unfortunately it was a bit muddy as we suffered horrendous storms for a couple of days. Discovered Alobar restaurant on the beach wonderful food and service. We have intentions of returning in the future, thanks for all your information.Smile

Would love to hear more of your holiday in A.G.  Sounds like you had a good time.  We love the village.  The last couple of times we stayed at Villa Sophia and hope to return next year.

We were shown round the Villa Sophia and I was impressed by it and Sophia was so friendly, such a pretty garden! We wanted to explore more but it was too hot for anything energetic, we only managed to walk to the  North end of the beach and that was as it started to cool down just before the storms. Next time we plan on going in May so we can try walking to Pendati and Sinarades.

Hi Chrissann,
  I am so pleased that you had a memorable holiday in Agios Gordios, the view from Villa Mary is spectacular. I first visited the resort 20 years ago and stayed at Mazis and have been hooked ever since. I also have stayed 3 times at Villa Sophia, that was in the days when it was just a single storey. The garden was just as beautiful then and Sophia used to dry Figs on the roof for winter use. I know that a member of Sophia's family has started a Facebook page for the apartments.
