The location is ideal for walking into Kalamaki to the bars and restaurants. It's a fantastic well equipped villa and George and Andrie couldn't have been more helpful. They recommended restaurants and booked taxis for us. The welcome pack of wine, raki, biscuits, nuts fruit and bread was a lovely surprise. The quick response from Andrie to any request was amazing.
