The restaurant's are wonderful and there are so many for such a small unspoilt village. The people are all very friendly and the food is excellent and Almyrida is only 25 mins from the airport, great for couples and families.

The villas was easy to find with the directions provided and it's a short 7 or 8 minute drive to the nearest town where you'll find restaurants and supermarkets (there's a great bakery next to the supermarket on the left as you enter town). All rooms are a good size. Most rooms have air-conditioning, but those that do not (the 3 bedrooms in the lower ground floor) are adequately cooled by air-con units in the living area. There is a great outdoor BBQ area with a small gym if you're in the mood for a workout! Great responsiveness from both the villa owner and agent with questions. Recommended for families.
