Perfect - for peace, tranquility and total relaxation.

5 of 5
Clean villa, cracking position and had all you needed in terms of utensils etc. The tracks around the island are rough and quite steep in places but they lead to glorious bays with clear water and invariably there is no-one else there. We really enjoyed the ten minute walk to the Tavernas in the evening where you could either have a 'people fix' or talk to each other if you hadn't had enough of that during the day. The brochures would describe this island as unspoiled. It is just that, so don't go unless you are happy with nothing but nature and the sound of cicadas.

A wonderful place!!!

The location was very beautiful, with an amazing view and very close to the forest. The property was very clean and the owners were friendly and willing to help in everything we needed. The quality of the food was excellent too! I would surely recommend it!
