Lovely apartment, beautiful resort

5 of 5
We have just got back from a 10 day stay at this apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean, spacious, beautiful private garden and patio area. The pool was great and is shared, but we were very rarely in their together, so at times it seemed like our own private pool. The resort and beach are 10 mins walk away. There are some great tavernas, Psaros and Costanita our favourites, but everywhere is good and right by the sea, for lovely fews especially at sunset. Great bakery just down from the apartment, where we made daily trips to. If you have breakfast at costanita, you get your sun beds and water included on the beach! We took the bus to Ghania a couple of nights, which is well worth a visit. All in all can't say enough good things, great family holiday will definitely be returning. The Goodyear Family

Beautiful stone villa with fantastic views of sea and mountains.

5 of 5
Fantastic villa in the hills above the beach. If you like sitting watching the sun set over the mountains then this place is perfect - just like the photos. Owner and agent were friendly and helpful. Only niggle was construction work down the hill about half a mile away - I suspect though that we were unlucky to coincide with early drilling and the wind from the north - I doubt this would be a problem next week. We had an excellent holiday. Thanks.
