So relaxing!

5 of 5
We had a very relaxing 10 days at this beautiful house. The house and garden have been lovingly and tastefully restored and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We spent most of our time on the terrace or by the pool, enjoying the sea view and soaking up the atmosphere of this rustic and authentic village setting. We received a very warm welcome from Alexandra (as well as some fantastic olive oil made by her husband and some delicious biscuits made by her Mum) which was a great start to what turned out to be a lovely holiday. I hope to return in the not too distant future!

Wonderful stay at this exceptional house

5 of 5
This property is a tradition farmhouse in a small village that has been sympathetically restored and beautifully fitted out in a shabby chic style. It has all amenities, including a lovely pool. It provides ample opportunity for a myriad of different uses (with three bedrooms in the main property and another in an adjoining building - previously a stable - and three different areas for dining). We had an enjoyable and memorable stay here with our adult teens. The owner of the house was lovely. She met us there and later in the week cooked us a wonderful meal. The property is situated close to beaches and other sites of interest. If you want a more authentic experience of a Crecian holiday, of something you will not find by staying in a new build property in a resort, I cannot recommend Dotira highly enough.
