We were visiting Villa Elektra in early May. To reach the villa we followed the Diplomats Holidays road sign and then turned left. The road is somewhat rough during these last several hundred meters, so you might prefer to leave passengers out if you do not own an SUV.
The host met us as we arrived to the villa entrance, showed us around and left us to enjoy our holidays. We received prompt replies via email to our further questions during the day.
In early May we seemed to be the only people in the area as the trips season was only about to start.
It is a spectacular place to stay at. We had two rooms with two small bathrooms and air conditioning and good Internet, hot water, amazing furniture, small kitchen area, bath towels and bedclothes. The plants and lawns near the house are absolutely wonderful and offer shade during peak sun hours. Private beach was another thing we came to appreciate as it was clean and cosy. We enjoyed seldom swims in the clear water (as it was still a bit cold). Our daughter especially liked the segment with sandy bottom though rocky areas did not cause discomfort.
At night the sky view was spectacular with hundreds of visible stars.
The only aspect to keep in mind that the parking space in front of the villa is rather limited, so get mentally ready for turning around and parking on a slope. Parking was the only tasks that appeared to be stressful to me. I would recommend checking your brakes (especially the hand brake) and absolutely putting a fair anti-rolling stone behind the rear wheel to sleep well at night.
We expected to find some brand supermarkets in the area, but it was a wrong assumption. Chorto has two small shops and we found several more in Milina (the next village south). Lidl shops are located in the Volos city area which is a 50km trip. So keep that in mind when planning the trip.
In early May all restaurants seemed rather empty with only a few visitors attending them. For several evenings we visited Casablanca place being the only guests to enjoy colorful interior lighting and home-made cakes.
We did several walks to Chorto and Milina, the latter having kids playground for out daughter. Our attempts to have a boat trip from Platanias failed as the ship starts somewhere in June. One day we went to Volos to experience more active city life, while all other time was filled with piece and silence.
Villa Elektra is a superb place to spend your holidays in comfort and piece. Consider the food/supermarkets and driving/parking aspects, get a flashlight (to navigate after the sunset) and beach accessories to make the most of your trip. You might also prefer to travel later than we did to get warmer sea and more entertainment options.
