Visitors in self-catering accommodation in Tavronitis can stock up on fresh local produce at several small, local shops in the area, an experience in itself. There are also several restaurants down along the beach in Tavronitis, where visitors can sample traditional Greek food and occasionally see traditional Greek dance performances.

The villa is stunning, a real home from home. Private, peaceful and luxurious. The owners have renovated the villa with taste and charm, the perfect mix of modern with traditional vernacular style. The villa is spacious, spotlessly clean and has everything you need for a truly relaxing break. We loved sitting in the sunshine on the enormous rooftop terrace during the day. In the evenings we lit the open fire and ate in the kitchen dining room, very romantic. The bed was so very comfy with the softest linens. Fluffy towels provided for the bathroom and for the pool. It was too cold to swim but we sat by the pool and dipped our legs. Pool is a really good size, clean and very inviting. The bathrooms are designed with quality and taste, with the most fabulous showers...we didnt want to get out! Georgia and Dennis were wonderful hosts, they had thought of everything. A fully stocked kitchen with herbs and spices, condiments, sauces. They left us fruit, vegetables, wines, chocolate, bread, cheese even candles ...amazing hospitality! They had thought of everything. Sunlotions, doedorant, fly spray, toothpaste, toilet rolls, ....so well planned. The villa is about a 30 minute drive from the airport, easy to find but we arrived late and lost our way in the dark so rang Dennis and he came out to find us...nothing is too much trouble for these lovely people. Mini markets, beach and restaurants a five minute drive away, perfectly placed close to amenities whilst being peaceful and quiet. Nothing to fault at all .....6 stars! We are looking forward to returning soon, Thank you so very much Georgia and Dennis for making our stay so fabulous, you are the perfect hosts, kisses for Baby the cat. Much love from Chrissie and Pete. xxx

The villa is tastefully decorated with everything you need for a pleasant stay. It is located on top of the traditional village of Tavronitis surrounded by olive trees,nature and an amazing scenery of mountains and the ocean. Location is great because in 20 min walking you can also reach tavernas,bar,restaurant and also the beach.It is a place where you find restfulness and relaxation especially on the sunny terrace at day times and at clear nights with a sky full of stars. It has a nice garden and outdoor area with several seats and a big swimming pool. We love to have dinner oustside with BBQ! The place itself is great, clean and well equipped 5 stars and I will recommended to everybody!
