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.

The property was immaculate, very clean and tidy, and cleaners also popped in during the week. The property was just outside Stoupa but only a five minute drive to the town and it was easy to park at the church. Being on the hill the house had superb views from the pool over the sea. The pool was very well maintained and perfect for cooling off in the very hot weather we experienced. The sun beds were comfortable and the whole of the pool area was well designed to enjoy sun and shade. The house was well air conditioned and kitchen well equipped. It was spacious and comfortable throughout the house and in good decorative order. We would definitely book again.
