Manolis and Maria, the owners, were welcoming from the moment we arrived and had thoughtfully provided breakfast for the next morning as well as other items of food and drink to welcome us. The view from the balcony makes the apartment too, as it looks directly over the little beach and out to sea and is literally across the road. The walk into the centre of town from the apartment takes about 10 minutes but there are restaurants very near to the apartment too and a great diving and watersports centre (Pelagos). Manolis and Maria have thought of everything and it made our stay all the more pleasurable for it - wouldn't hesitate to book a return stay if we were in the area again.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Comfortable bedroom, plenty of storage. Large sea facing balcony and the only apartment with an awning for shade. The owners provide pool towels and a collection of parasols & cool bags for the beach. The best feature is the private roof terrace with fabulous views of sea and mountains, comfortable furnishings, electric BBQ and fridge. Also there is a good range of plastic tableware for the outdoor lifestyle. Would highly recommend - we will definitely return.
