George Patsoumadakis purchased this house in 2004
The houses are in a stunning location down a short pedestrian street. A short walk to everything in the village, but very quiet as well.
Vafes is a small but very friendly village and we were made very welcome. There are mosquitoes, but we we also saw an eagle from our terrace. The wifi works best down by the pool. Not an issue.
Très agréable location traditionnelle dans un village très authentique avec des habitants chaleureux et accueillants. Le plus de la location: la piscine et le calme. La climatisation dans la première chambre serait un plus.
