Our family spent one week there and the villa has everything you need and more to make your vacation wonderful. It really felt like a home away from home. The owner Natassa was very nice and made us feel very welcome. The standard of the interiour is very high, the pool area is great and the view is magical. We can´t wait to get back!

Not much in the village but there is a fantastic and friendly taverna. If you like rustic villages try Pigi (5 mins in car or 25 min walk). Vilia and her family were great hoasts and we would go there again - our bar b q in the courtyard was fun. Vicky, Graham and Family
