The house is accessible via a private drive way off the main road. Apart from the microwave, everything you could need (including a freezer) was available. Internet access could be better. We had to go outside to have a good internet connection. We arrived very late/early (2am) and received the keys without a problem. People were very friendly and got us breakfast for the first morning. Irina responds quickly to email requests.

The apartment had everything we needed and was exactly as described. Neal was extremely helpful from initial enquiry through to our actual stay. He was informative giving advice on car hire and places to visit during our stay. We had a wonderful holiday and Areti and her management team at Lagada Bay could not do enough from arranging transport for evenings out to ordering morning coffee and pastries from the local bakery. Makri Gialos is a beautiful unspoilt resort - a step back in time where our youngest daughter enjoyed a paddle in the sea in between the courses of our evening meal at the Golden Beach taverna. Will definitely be returning.

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
