Outside and inside space, quiet location and just the right distance to walk down into the village for meals or shopping. We ate out nearly every night as the tavernas were so reasonably priced, and the mini-market had bread, veg and cheese etc for breakfast and simple lunches. The house was very clean and tidy and nicely furnished. Loved the cookbook - we ordered our own copy from e-bay before we left. Only a minor gripe, we were there for 8 nights, and would have loved a change of bedlinen at some point (it was August, so it was hot).

                                                                                              We had such a lovely time staying in this delightful cottage! The village of Agios Stefanos is extremely charming, nestled into the mountainside overlooking the rugged south coast. We found the local Greeks and Europeans to be very helpful and friendly, offering useful local knowledge and making us feel very welcome indeed. The cottage itself is on the edge of this old village, offering privacy and accessibility. It is extremely well equipped and comfortable. The Mosquito Blinds ensure the inside remains free of bugs, although there are very few mosquitoes around anyway, so we could enjoy evenings on the roof looking at the stars and stunning surroundings. There is also plenty to do and see in the area - Vraiko Cave outside Pefki village offers an impressive and extensive stalagtite/mite series of interlocking chambers. We felt like explores discovering this gem for the first time, as there is no lighting/walk-ways etc (or entry charge). The folk museum, mountaintop church and Gorge Walk around Pefki are also great activities to do when you're not exploring the various sandy or rocky beaches. These are quite different from each other - some good for snorkelling (dragon's cave near Kalo Nero) and others better for younger children, such as the main beach at Makrigialos Beach, which is sandy with shallow calm water close to parking and the town facilities. We also enjoyed some days simply relaxing at the cottage and reading some of the interesting books from the cottage 'mini library'. We were particularly grateful for the wealth of information contained in the Visitor Book at the cottage, packed with helpful tips from a wide range of appreciative visitors. We very much hope to come here again! Francis and Avril

The view to the ocean was wonderful. But it was absolutly necessary to rent a car to go to the beach or other places.
