Those looking for a beach holiday will find the beach here is a real luxury; spreading for an astounding 60 or so miles (100 km) the beautiful golden sand beach runs pretty much unbroken and always has many spots where you can sit back and enjoy peace and quiet, and privacy, away from any crowds. The attractive sand dunes make a fun place for children to play, and when you want some shade the pine forests that front the beach provide all the shade you need. Off the beach you can use your Samiko self catering accommodation as a base for exploring inland. The mountains are ideal for walking and mountain biking, enjoying views, flora and fauna.

The apartment is very clean and comfortable. It is also very well equipped with many additional kitchen aids including a deep fat fryer, state-of-the- art ceramic hob and good size electric oven, an easy to use large microwave oven, an electric kettle (with tea bags provided!), a large sandwich toaster and grill (fitting six slices of toasting bread), together with a very efficient dishwasher and washing machine. Both bedrooms are spacious with double beds in each and lots of storage space in fitted wardrobes and cupboards. Cooking utensils included other nice touches such as a pizza board and slicer, a pressure cooker and plenty of pots and pans, plates, bowls, serving equipment and cutlery. There are air conditioning units in the lounge and one bedroom which work efficiently to cool the property when needed, plus with excellent insect screen guards at all windows it is possible to open doors to all of the balconies and allow an inflow of fresh air throughout the day. The beds and mattresses were very comfortable with a good supply of linen, towels and blankets to meet all of our needs. Our sleep at night was restful and undisturbed. Parking is readily available on the road outside the property, often right by the front entrance door, and there are trees for parking in the shade further down the same road if desired. The apartment in located in Krestena, a rural village/town with a couple of well-stocked supermarkets, a taverna/café and a local grill offering eat-in, take-away or home delivery options for souvlaki, gyros, spit-roasted chicken etc. A superb beach at Kato Samiko is driveable within 12-15 minutes and is one of the many stunning beaches which run for many kilometres along this wild and largely unspoiled coastline, much of which is protected from development by its nature park designation. There are loads of other things to do as well, including visits to archaeological sites (Ancient Olympia, Ilia and Vassae), trips inland to beautiful mountain villages like Dimitsana, visits to stunning lakes and waterfalls, gorges and river valleys, and a well-restored large Frankish castle at Chlemoutsi. Then there was our wonderfully attentive, caring & generous host Konstantinos (Kosta), who look after us brilliantly. We spent a very happy and convivial time with him throughout our stay and he really does make you welcome!!

Even if it doesn't have a proper address, it was very easy to find it based on the accurate instructions received from the owner. The house is very clean, beautiful decorated and everything we needed was there. The garden is very big, good for walks and adventures for kids. There is nothing around so, it is very quiet. The owner was extremely helpful, gave us plenty of details and responded promptly to all our questions. The access to Olympia and nearby villages is easy by car. Our kids absolutely loved it so, I'm sure we'll return!
