Old World Charm Meets Modern Amenities

This traditional Cycladic-style property consists of 19 soundproof guestrooms spacious enough for 2 to 3 people. The rooms are well furnished to guarantee a comfortable stay. Signature whitewashed walls further enhance their beauty. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning as well as heating facilities.

You can choose between a standard and deluxe room. Each room opens to its own private patio where you can enjoy surreal views of the swimming pool and beyond. Other facilities include a writing desk, mini-fridge, cable television, and free WiFi both indoor and outdoor.

Bathrooms in standard rooms feature a rain shower, a walk-in shower, and a bidet. Washrooms in deluxe rooms have all of these, in addition to a bathtub for a more lavish experience.

Usually, extra beds are not provided in any of the rooms. Make sure you call the hosts and inform them of any special requirements. They are always more than happy to help their guests.

Laundry, ironing and housekeeping services are available. A delicious traditional breakfast is served every morning in your bed, garden or by the pool,  which is sure to get your tastebuds excited. Free parking is also provided to all guests.

The best part about this mesmerizing place is its 24-hour outdoor swimming pool from where you can observe the scenic countryside. The pool itself is surrounded by several colorful flowers, creating an absolutely stunning sight. The area around the pool is dotted with sun beds and umbrellas.

You can spend endless hours sunbathing on the terrace. You can also enjoy a stroll around the pretty garden. Every corner of Villa Arlene reeks of a hypnotizing charm. Don’t be surprised if the thought of staying here forever crosses your mind more than once.

The warm and hospitable hosts do everything in their capacity to ensure a comfortable stay for everyone. They provide special facilities (such as washrooms) for differently-abled guests. However, the hotel doesn’t have any smoking zone/room. Pets are not allowed inside the property.
