Things to do from a holiday home in the Cyclades, Greece

Holidays to Cyclades Islands are all unique, but there are some characteristics which run through the vast majority of the 24 inhabited islands.

The property has a beautiful outside space in front with a gorgeous view of the bay towards Ornos. The seating area inside is not very big but it didn't feel cramped for our family of 5 and it was well appointed and welcoming. Communication with the owner was excellent and the local staff was helpful and polite. Would wholly recommend!

Villa Fontana very comfortable and well set-up in a great location, 5 minutes from town centre. Loved the book and DVD collection and the shady terrace. Chris and Janine very helpful and good to deal with. I would heartily recommend.
