We enjoyed big courtyard filled with orange trees that provided us with space for alfresco dining and relaxation while listening to never ending cicadas. Vila is conveniently located right in the heart of Longos village with a few tavernas, couple of shops, bakery, church and a chemist right at the doorstep. Property owner Alexandros was very friendly and helpful with tips of good restorants and places to visit. Beautiful Corinthian bay and pebble beach filled with greek families is only 500m away. Location of the house allowed us to explore Ancient Corinth, Delphi, Olympia, Mycenae. Simply amazing. Many thanks for a very enjoyable holiday !

We holidayed with two young children and had a lovely time visiting the local beaches every day. Diakofto is an interesting town, and all the facilities you need on a holiday are within a short drive. Kerinia itself could only have been bettered if it had a taverna, but we knew that before we went. Otherwise, the house offered a restful hideaway.
