Long term let

4 of 5
We recently had a 2 month stay in this apartment. Kathy and Chris could not have been more friendly or helpful what wonderful hosts. We found the apartment very clean and comfortable, especiallly the sofa and the bed and the kitchen was a bonus as we like to self cater as well as eat out. The position of the apartment afforded wonderful views of the mountains and the valley and beautiful sunrises. It was very convenient for shops, tavernas and beaches. The local taverna next to the pharmacy in Agio Pantes served excellent fresh food just 5 minute drive. Would recommend the apartment for a short or long stay holiday.

Fabulous

5 of 5
The apartment was perfect and the roof terrace was stunning with views across the bay. Alymirda was a lovely village which had everything you would need , restaurants , cafes, supermarket and a bakery. Taxis and the bus stop just further up the road. Panos was more than helpful, left a good welcome pack for our arrival and kept in touch with us during our two week stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Nothing was too much of a problem for him, even when the front door to the apartment slammed closed while on the roof terrace and we were locked out. Within 15 minutes we had access. What a fantastic host !!! Thank you Panos and thank your father.
