Our host Amalia has surprised us several times with local dishes she prepared herself. Rustic and authentic decor with all necessary equipment. The house is extremely well maintained and fully cleaned 2 times per week, the swimming pool is checked and cleaned every morning. Perfect location for a peacefull and quiet vacation! Highly recommended!!

Easy walking distance to restaurants and supermarkets along the seafront or down the side streets. The pool is slightly smaller than we were expecting but with the sea so close it was fine. Rooms were a nice size. Elizabeth and Evmorfia were really helpful during the booking process and while we were there.
