This has go to be the best hotel I have ever stayed in when it comes to a family holiday. With only 20 rooms and a handful of staff, your every need is taken care of in a manner usually expected at a boutique hotel at 5 times the price. The hotel is run by its owner and the staff cannot do enough to make your stay more comfortable. The rooms and hotel/grounds are cleaner than a hospital operating theatre. The food is on par with Gourmet and is served as if you are dining at a Michelin Star restaurant. We found out later that everything is fresh, local and is prepared and made in the hotel. The location is unbeleivable and the area has to be seen. The beach is a 10 minute walk and truly deserves its blue flag status. A little further walking distance and you are on beaches on your own. The local pine forests, lagoon and even the mountains are pure stimulants to your relaxation. Venture out a little in a car and you meet the local 'Real Greeks' who cannot get any more hospitable in the small towns with their little cafe's and restaurants. A traditional Sunday Market where you can buy 'real' souvenirs is close by in Nea Manolada. I wanted a complete get away; I did not want to go and find places to eat every day and night and the hotel catered for my breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food was exceptional. If your looking for a 7 star deluxe hotel with a Spa and a Gym, you wont find it here; BUT THE SERVICE and FOOD is better than any 7 star deluxe hotel I have ever stayed in. Not for young people, not for those who want to do more than sit under the sun by the pool or beach all day. This is a true getaway from it all in an amazing natural part of Greece where the hotel staff seem to be hand picked for your personal relaxation. If you have a high pressure life and want to switch off for a few days or even a couple of weeks, you wont find anyhere better than this. And the coffee served here has got to be the best in Greece. All my posted photo's are from the first two weeks of August; as you can see its Q U I E T !
