“Absolutely fantastic stay, we felt welcome from the very beginning”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The charming little town Kolymbari was the perfect place for us to relax for 14 days in may. The combination of calm atmosphere, beautiful buildings located by the sea and mountain view were unique.

In Kolymbari there are several good restaurants, just enough to visit them all, and come back for our favorites. We found the best to be Koundouros, in the 1. floor beneath the appartment.

Xristinas Apartment is highly recommended, spacious, high standard, clean equipped with everything you would need. Fantastic sea view from the master bedroom and the balcony. The town’s best view from the nice roof terrace.

The town and the apartment were even better than our expectations, but above everything;
Xristina made us feel heartily welcome and comfortable from the very beginning. Xristina and her husband Stavros were helpful in every way they could. Arranging transportation, tips for what to visit, rental car etc. She even offered fresh eggs, homemade cheese, marmalade, excellent olive oil and more, form their own farm. Real genuine hospitality!

We hope to return to Xristinas appartment soon.

“A very nice apartment”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 for a stay in August 2013

Christina is lovely, relaxed, very welcoming and kind. The apartment is clean, airy and well equipped. The balcony over-looks the sea and is a good place to relax, or watch the world go by and the tavernas filling up in the evening. The roof garden has day beds and 360 degree views. With a car you get to beautiful small beaches about 20 - 30 mins drive away, and Kolimbari is nice to walk around. Bear in mind it's above a taverna, so no quiet early nights in the summer.

“Comfort and friendliness”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Very comfortable apartments for rest with small children. Кindly, hospitable hostess and her family, which feasted us with homemade food and farm products of excellent quality regularly. Great view of the amazing Kritsky sea. It is fine chance to take pleasure with colourful nature of the Greek island, including from apartments: sunrise, sunset and seascape - it will be all yours! ) ) ) Excellent location. Bravo, Xristina! ) ) )

Couldn't have asked for better accommodation and host, Xristina is marvellous and very generous. Weather was fantastic. We were lucky to be met at the airport by our car rental and they actually escorted us to the unit, providing us with road skills and direction.

“It was the best vacation of my family!”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The apartment is located on the beach and we fell asleep and woke up to the sound of waves. The apartment is very spacious and for 6 people was very comfortable. The apartment has nice modern decor. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a wonderful meal. Nearby is a supermarket and several restaurants.
The apartment has a wonderful unforgettable view ... lovely waterfront ... endless sea ... and the incredible beauty of the mountains ...
Christina and her family is friendly and nice people ... who have tried to make our holiday even better. When I was able to retire from my busy family on the roof of this apartment, it opened my eyes are so beautiful view, I was happy. I recommend you to visit this place!
