Very practical kitchen, nice bathrooms, comfortable beds, practical windows. Air conditionning working well with a well isolated building giving you to possibility to hide from the outside heat. Very warm welcome from the owners in an extremely well maintained house. Definitely the right choice to stay in Kamilari at 10 minutes from the Komos or Matala beaches. Thanks to yorgos and family and hope to see you soon.

If you are looking for solitude, empty beaches, rugged mountains, carpets of flowers, a beautiful little cottage on the edge of a Greek village, this is it. But, shhh, don't tell anyone else!
