Just perfect!

5 of 5
Beautiful house in a lovely olive garden with amazing views! Our stay in this lovely house was just amazing! The house is very spacious and comfortable with a homely atmosphere decorated with Anna's paintings.The private bay just in front of the house is perfect for a dip into the sea especially in the mornings when the sea is very calm and clean. Anna and Panos are very kind and discrete and always there to assist when necessary. We loved the barbeque just next to the house and we spent many evenings preparing the delicious local sausages while watching the sunset! In the house there was a nice booklet with insider tips about what to do in the area but to be honest we loved " just being home" so much that we didn't undertake a lot . That's why we definately need to come back next year!

Wonderful place

5 of 5
Our experience at Anna’s house was unforgettable. The house is wonderful, located on the side of Ionian Sea. The scenery was magnificent; it made us feel like we are in a small paradise. Anna and her husband, Panos, were very polite and they welcomed us as friends. They shared useful information with us, including the best beaches and restaurants around the area. They also told us to attend a Greek music performance in the theatre of Ancient Olympia and we had a lovely time there. My husband and I will remember this vacation for years and we really hope to go back soon.
