We are a family from Germany with two kids and we had a great holidaytime at Villa GAMMA. The house is new, very modern and the garden with the swimming pool has got a stunning view to the sea.
The landlord was very kind and we felt most welcome. They cleaned the villa in the mid of our stay, and we got new towels, which was very comfortable.
With a rented car we visited many beaches, which are 5-15 minutes by car away from the villa. We loved Matala and the nice beach with crystal clear water.
Thanks to Dimitris and his family!
