Everything was exactly as described on the website. The house was clean and spacious, set in a large private garden and not overlooked. The photos depicting it on the site are very accurate. The location itself was peaceful and private yet within easy reach of many beautiful beaches and local tavernas. We would recommend hiring a car to make the most of exploring the area. The house offered everything needed for a simple self catering holiday, together with good internet access. Despina, the owner, was very helpful and informative and there was excellent communication throughout. We would love to return again one day.

The apartment was very well located and clean and tidy with everything you need for your stay provided. Nikos and George were very warm and welcoming, and I'd like to thank them for making us feel at home straight away. It was so good to have them at hand for any questions we had about the local area, like having our own guides. We couldn't have asked for more from the service we got and would definitely consider going back again.
