We had a relaxing time just chilling on the beach and swimming in the sea. The cottages were kept very clean and we had fresh bed linen and towels every couple of days. It really is more like a hotel. Jimmy collected us from the airport which all went very well. Thelassi was our favourite restaurant in the village and the food was always brilliant. All in all a wonderful place to spend 2 weeks, we have already booked for next year! Thank you to Christine and her team for looking after us so well!

The views are phenomenal - not conducive to leaving the property! Fortunately it's only a 10 minute walk to the town and the beach for a refreshing swim. We enjoyed BBQing our tea with a mountain view, and hope to be back in future. Jen and Chris
