A week’s stay with my girlfriend and son in this B&B was exactly what I was looking for. Tranquility, safety, home feeling ambiance with good breakfast at 4 EURO and staff always being there when you need them. Blown away by their hospitality, thanks a lot for arranging our last minute tours to Samaria and Balos. I will definitely use... More

We had some lovely walks around the area but spent most afternoons lazing by the pool. Vassilis and Rebecca were such friendly hosts and nothing seemed too much to help us... More

Just back from a week at Summer Lodge; very peaceful and quaint guesthouse, the owners Vassillis & Rebecca were welcoming and helpful. Local beach at the end of a little lane, very picturesque and quiet. Bus service to busier resorts easily accessible and less than 2 Euros. Its simple, authentic & lovely
