As soon as we arrived we realised we had found a real gem - not only for it's position in a beautifully quiet village in real, old Greece but for it's comfort, facilities and most of all the stunning view from the amazing veranda. The cute plunge pool was really welcome after a hot day at the beach and, not having a full sized pool made us get out and explore the many fabulous beaches. Our favourite was Delphinia - pebbly but the clearest turquoise water and not too many people compared to Stoupa and Kalogria - both of which are lovely (sandy) but obviously very busy in August ! We were spoilt for choice for wonderful tavernas in Ag Nic and Stoupa - all offering basically the same food in lovely settings. I would recommend this area of Greece and particularly L&L cottage to anyone who wants a break in a breathtakingly beautiful and totally unspoilt part of the world.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

House is very spacious with some great views from the porch and balcony, it also has terrace in the rooftop which is great for relaxing and watching sunset. It has its own entry to the beach which is very nice with clear water. It can get crowded especially during weekends but during the week its calmer. House has a very nice rustic charm and the owners were very nice. It can get hot during the nights because there is no AC but they have some cooling fans and if u air the house before going to sleep its manageable. Would recommend.
