Road to house leads to a steep hill but it is possible to go by car and the sea view and mountain above us is really worthy it. House is about 5 minutes by foot from main road, it is completely private. There are 2 beautiful pebble beaches about10 - 15 minutes by stairs. The sea is really clean, you can see into really depth, there are beatiful rocks and many fish in the sea. The swimming pool outside the house is wonderfull. We swam in it every morning before the breakfast. What a refreshment! House is inside quite spacious, on terrace there is enough space for nice seating and relaxation. We would appreciate if there would be bigger light in the main room. Stay in this house was really wonderfull. Would recommend to everybody.

Waking up with the view on the sea is making a holiday special!! good outside shower and a perfect terras with a lot of shade and wide views all day. We were there with our family and we will defintely come back. We had some trouble finding it, but once you are there, you know.
