The complex is maintained to the highest standard and during our stay was very quiet with most apartments unoccupied. The ten minute stroll into panormos in the evening was a lovely way to end the day, visiting the local tavernas or browsing in the little shops. In need of a break after a few busy months we returned home with batteries fully recharged. We look forward to a return visit.
