Lovely apartment. Brand new kitchen with 2 ring hob, grill, oven, kettle, coffee machine, sandwich toaster, large fridge and freezer. Enough crockery for snacks etc. Bathroom with walk in shower, vanity unit and loo. Comfy bed in spacious bedroom with dressing table and plenty of wardrobe space. Large living area with TV, dining table and sofa bed. Air con in the bedroom and living area. Really well thought out and decorated. Twin balcony, with table and chairs. Very clean.
Bins were emptied every morning, and linen and towels changed every other day by the very helpful and efficient cleaning lady.
Pool and garden are very relaxing and quiet. Sunbeds and sunshades provided.
The building is inbetween the main parts of Gouvia and Kontokali, so its a short stroll to tavernas and cafes in either direction. Just a couple of minutes walk into the marina, which is huge, and has lots of amenities too.
Within Gouvia there is a supermarket on the main highway, and lots of restaurants and bars. Quite laid back in the afternoons and evenings, but plenty of places stay open until the early hours. Kontokali is a little quieter in the evenings.
We hired a car for few days, and drove around the whole island, which is beautiful. Never seen so many olive groves and cypress. The little villages up in the hills are well worth a visit, as are some of the tiny little coves en route.
We also did a lot of walking around the bay, in the mornings before the temperatures rose, then chilled by the pool in the afternoons to recover.
Will definately be back!
