Most relaxing holiday that I've had in years!

5 of 5
From the booking process, right through to saying goodbye, Giannis and Kyriaki were friendly, professional, and welcoming hosts. The accommodation itself is perfect for a couple, everything provided is of good quality and worked as it should. The view from the villa was incredible!! Breakfast and drinks in the evening on the balcony were a delight. If you prefer to be far from the madding crowd (but still within reach of beaches & things to do) then these villas are the perfect choice. It was our first visit to Greece and its islands. We will visit again!

Central and clean appartment with great views

4 of 5
The appartment is in a residential area within easy walking distance to several of the beaches, the lake and many good restaurants etc. We were met by Anne (the owner) who was extremely welcoming and helpful in providing both general and tourist information about the local and surrounding areas (all easily accessible by public transport). Anne also gave some excellent recommendations for places to eat which were great, (particularly Chrisofyllis and Paradosiako) both are near Kitroplatia beach. We also loved the quirky pizza bar 'Sirocco' at the Marina which has a lovely friendly atmosphere and ambience. The short, but hilly walk upto Chez George for a cocktail is well worth it to fully appreciate great views of the lake. In conclusion, we would not hesitate to recommend a stay at this appartment ... Anne and her husband Vasilis will ensure your needs are met where possible.
