The views are phenomenal - not conducive to leaving the property! Fortunately it's only a 10 minute walk to the town and the beach for a refreshing swim. We enjoyed BBQing our tea with a mountain view, and hope to be back in future. Jen and Chris

The views are spectacular and the small villa is comfortable and well equipped. The air conditioning unit in the upper bedroom was a bonus and led to good nights' sleep and having a dishwasher was also a real help. The house itself has been renovated tastefully, and has a lovely character - well shown in the photos so we were not disappointed: the description is very accurate. The downstairs terrace is a real haven with olive, fig, almond, cactus, vines and a delicious smelling jasmine - we really enjoyed having our lunch there after a morning on the beach. Walking in the mountains, easily accessed from the village, in the cooler evenings was a highlight, meeting only goats and sheep and their shepherd provided a good contrast to the busier coastline. The breathtaking views, the smell of wild herbs and the sound of goat bells were magical. We can recommend the local village taverna where we were served rabbit stew and further afield, the River restaurant in Agia Fotia was particularly good - a family taverna surrounded by roses and fruits with much of the food sourced from the family's own plot. The complementary walnut cake and raki at the end of the meal were delicious. We had a memorable holiday and can highly recommend the villa.
