The lovely owners could not have been more helpful, meeting us off a late ferry and collecting our hire car. The villa is very clean and comfortable and the quiet location was perfect for us. The colourful garden on one side and the olive grove on the other were a delight and the view from the verandah is a 180 degree sea view. The nearby pebbly beach was good for snorkelling and we had it to ourselves! We particularly liked the beach and taverna at Agios Dimitrios which is a mile away. Will definitely return.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Stamatis is a wonderful host, friendly, helpful and attentive. We went with a toddler and we managed ok, although I wouldn't necessarily recommend for that age group unless you're happy to monitor them at all times as there's a few sheer drops! Location was stunning - being near the airport was a bonus and watching the planes was actually quite fun, and there weren't many of them (we were there end of May). I'd definitely recommend this as a place to stay, we're hoping to return!
