We are very touched by the warm and informal attitude to guests by Amalia and her special love for children. Specific words deserves that this trip was for us a wonderful opportunity to explore the Greek and Corfian cuisine. It turned out that Spiros - a wonderful chef. He prepared for us a marvelous dinner several times a week with a truly Greek generosity, which means we had a plenty of food all the time of our stay. For the cooking he used the delicious vegetables from his own garden, fresh Ionian seafood and other wonderful things. In addition, the hosts served us their own wine and Amalia’s Greek desserts Pasta Flora and unforgettable loukoumades that was a hit among our son. Summing up, we will miss not only clear waters of the Ionian Sea, but also our generous and hospitable hosts. Definitely, we would recommend Rainbow to those who are with children, who have a stressful job and need a nirvana and those who love the natural delicious food. We wish to come back next year! Many hugs, Amalia & Spiros and thank you very much for everything! Maxim, Veronika and Leo
Een heerlijke plek op loopafstand van het strand. Mooi ruim en zeer schoon appartement met schitterend uitzicht op zee. Zeer gastvrije eigenaren die hun gasten dagelijks in de watten leggen. Heerlijke mandarijnen uit eigen tuin en lekkere verrassingen uit de keuken, Griekse koffie en zelfgemaakte producten. Het eten wat je 's avonds kan bestellen is fantastisch, heel authentiek en gemaakt van verse producten en niet te vergelijken met een restaurant, het is vele malen beter. De prijs voor het eten is heel redelijk en het zeker waard.
Bei Amalia und ihrer Familie haben wir die verwöhntesten, gemütlichsten und feinsten Urlaubstage verbracht.
Das Nebeneinander von authentischer Freundlichkeit und Herzlichkeit, unaufdringlicher und zuvorkommender Aufmerksamkeit sowie Gewährung von Diskretion und Freiraum waren für uns eine ganz besonders gelungene Eigenschaft der Gastgeber.
Durch die Nähe zum Strand kann man zu jeder Tages-und Nachtzeit sehr unkompliziert in einem super-sauberen, kristallklaren Meer schwimmen.
Wir sind schon viel gereist und herumgekommen, aber die Gastfreundschaft und Großzügigkeit dieser überaus netten Familie ist schlichtweg unglaublich und unübertroffen!
Besonders hervorzuheben sind all die Köstlichkeiten, die man hier gustieren kann. Die Zutaten kommen aus dem großen eigenen Garten oder werden frisch vom Markt besorgt. All die leckeren Speisen, die Spiros und Amalia aus ihrer Küche zauberten, schmeckten sehr gut. ...und brachten nicht nur die Augen unserer Kinder zum Leuchten...
Wir hatten zwei tolle Wochen bei Amalia und ihrer Familie: der schöne Strand ist 50 m weg, der Garten wunderschön, von der Terrasse sieht man das Meer und besonders die Gastfreundschaft und zuvorkommende immer freundliche Art von Amalia und ihrer Familie haben dazu beigetragen, dass wir uns ihr so wohl gefühlt haben.
