The facilities were good and the hosts were very welcoming with a few provisions provided, plus some home-made preserved figs and mulberry raki. Having a private balcony with superb views was a bonus. Our only quibble would be the very basic cooking facilities in the all-in-one kitchenette, though we overcame that by eating out at lunchtime and only having a basic snack in the evening.

Excellent choice for a family vacation with its central but tucked away location, lovely views and peaceful ambience.
