Superb quality of accommodation which was roomy even with all 9 members of our family floating around. For parents with small children, you can relax in peace while they love playing for hours in complete safety on the stunning little private beach/cove, or the ample, secure and beautiful grounds that come with the property. We also celebrated our daughter's 23rd birthday while out there, and charming host Dimitris arranged for very high quality external caterers to come in and prepare a stunning 8 course traditional Greek feast which made the celebrations unforgettable. Caretaker Yiannis' daily octopus fishing forays made for several unexpected delicious snacks too! Even with so much beautiful coastline to explore, we only ended up dining out twice, because we simply didn't want to leave the villa. In summary, it exceeded our high expectations, and we'll most certainly be back.
