We had the most enjoyable stay in November 2016. Everything is immaculate, it felt like we were the first people to ever stay there. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay and the host left us some much appreciated goodies including traditional baked goods, water, beer, fruit and muesli! The view and outside space was our favourite part, the upstairs terrace is huge - we didn't use it much as we spent most of our time on the downstairs terrace by the pool. The property has clear views to the sea and feels completely private. The village itself is small and quiet but very friendly and nice for an afternoon walk. You will need a car If you want to explore further. We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning!

Large bedrooms, well equiped kitchen and the huge living room and nice terrace have a wonderful view to the white mountains. The pool is large and well maintained and behind (one terrace below) is even a nice garden where our kids loved to play. We were with 3 young children (5,4 and2) and it was very easy to close the stairs to the swimming pool with a chair, so our youngsters could not enter the pool unguided. That felt very safe. Mrs Frosso came by every day to maintain the house. She is really Nice, speaks English and knows a lot of the environment. The house is situated in a litlle village with a bakery, a few little supermarkets and Some Nice restaurants. It is a little but charming and friendly village. Nearby in Almyrida is a Nice beach (safe for little Children). I really can recommend this beautiful house!
