The hosts are also absolutely charming and really helpful, so if you need any information or advice it is readily available. we wanted one or two extra bits for the kitchen and they appeared almost immediately- can't ask for more. I would certainly stay again.

The 3 swimming pools and hot tub along with the spacious outdoor sitting area were a real winner with all family members. A great place for both those who love lounging around the pool and those who love the beach. We loved the variety of local tavernas offering great hospitality and local fresh produce. Lots to do close by with the Greek night in Pefki and the speedboat ride to Christi Island highly recommended
