                                                      Nice restful property

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      This was a very good property, one of the most comfortable we have stayed in. The standard was high, more like a permanent dwelling than a holiday rental. Plenty of furniture including outside the property; lots of things in the kitchen and good bathrooms etc. The property is very secure with an electronic gate and good windows and shutters, plus mesh doors for warm days but to keep the insects out. It’s nice and tucked away so very quiet and restful. There are some nearby tavernas and the Verde Al Mare hotel has a good poolside bar and restaurant (although closed from the first week of October). There are some local things to do, plus Olympia is an hour’s drive and the rack and pinion railway about 90 minutes away at Diakofto – both trips recommended. The owner took time to explain everything to us on arrival and we very much appreciated her returning something we left behind. The TV in the property has limited channels but it does have BBC World. If the WIFI doesn’t work for you pull it out at the plug and reconnect which seems to do the trick. We didn’t have GPS and the property was hard to locate from the instructions, so here’s a description to help future travellers to this property. From the main road from either Pyrgos or Patra, turn off to Lapas. If entering Lapas from the direction of Patra the best supermarket is on the right hand side just as you reach Lapas, opposite a petrol/gas station. Half way through the village there’s a turning on the right (from Patra direction) signposted to Kalogria with a second sign to the hotel Verde al Mare. Follow this road which will swing left past the village of Metoxi and eventually take you through a pine wood to a small bridge. Just after you cross the bridge there are a number of signs left to hotels etc. but do not follow these. Turn immediate right then immediate left up a small track (before a telegraph pole and small white dwelling). Follow this track around to the large white security gate to magnolia House. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
