We rented this beautiful house at the end of the season, so a few very forgivable little issues with things not quite working as they should.
The house in on two layers, large bedroom, with the biggest bed I have ever slept in, with bathroom on the lower deck. Kitchen/Diner, bedroom with twin beds and bathroom on the upper. No internal staircase so if you are travelling with kids this may be an issue.
The doors to lower bedroom and front door both slam lock, so keeping track of your keys is important! would be a great idea to have spares in each location so if the worst happens then you don't have to call a lock smith!
The pool is great but would benefit from a cover late in season just to keep the heat in. The kitchen is the best equipped we have come across on our many rents, you can easily cook up family meals here.
Roxanne has to be the most attentive host, we never actually saw her but had phone calls to the house to make sure we were OK, during our stay we caught a little hurricane and thunder storms, all very exciting when you are this far up in the hills. The garden sustained a bit of damage, but gardener and pool maintenance were in attendance as soon as it passed to make sure we retained the benefit of the lovely garden and pool area.
We highly recommend this house if you are looking for a quiet out of the way place. Restaurants and night life are all a drive away, one little Taverna in the village run by Alice and her family, they had just moved in in September 2018, food very basic but kind and friendly people as where the locals.
Food in general was a bit of a disappointment on the Island, big places in Argostilli that I am sure many people will like, but they do know how to charge (£5 for half a Peroni, thought I had been robbed!). Here you can find Italian, Chinese even Sushi, but good Greek food is hard to find.
We did find a very honest little Teverna run by Popi & Kosta called Milos in Farsa, doesn't look much from the outside but boy what a view, Kosta cooks well and entertains with his old traditional instruments, not in an annoying way in your face, just sits and plays a bit now and then. On one visit there was a young local family in, dad & daughter danced traditional dance while Kosta played, really nice to see, not a show, just local people enjoying and behaving naturally.
Thank you all for a lovely holiday.
