Alymirda was a lovely village which had everything you would need , restaurants , cafes, supermarket and a bakery. Taxis and the bus stop just further up the road. Panos was more than helpful, left a good welcome pack for our arrival and kept in touch with us during our two week stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Nothing was too much of a problem for him, even when the front door to the apartment slammed closed while on the roof terrace and we were locked out. Within 15 minutes we had access. What a fantastic host !!! Thank you Panos and thank your father.

We would also recommend a car to get to the beach at Almirida as it is quite a hot walk in the summer! Gill and Steve Turnbull-Jones
