It's the combination of beach location, fantastic outside spaces, basketball court, table tennis and beautiful pool that did it for us- the house itself became very secondary as you just want to be outside. (The house was lovely too, immaculately clean, well specified with fab a/c. ) What made the holiday even more special was the service we received before and during our stay- Manolis made himself available whenever we had a question and organised an absolutely brilliant day for us sailing along the south west coast in our own boat. We will come back again in years to come.
