This little village of 9 independent units (houses) offers the most magnificent backbone to a honeymoon, a family vacation or a get-together vacation for friends. The experience from the very beginning was more than excellent - making the reservation and deposit payment was easy, when I requested a few preparations as this was our honeymoon, the reply was simply "consider it done"! And that is the basic attitude of the two very pleasant owners of this fantastic resort - consider it done from the get go. Such attention is paid to detail; flower arrangements, a room set up especially for our baby and necessary amenities available ready to use, locally produced marmelade in the fridge, wine, cretan Raki on the table and of course homemade oliveoil ready on the kitchen table. Nothing was missing, in fact we discovered little surprises everywhere in the wonderful house. The views from all houses are astonishing and automatically draws you to a life on your own terrasse or on one of the shared pool areAs. Everything is kept to a high standard and the atmosphere is very pleasant - in fact family-like. One of these rare places that you are sad to leave and definitely want to return to! Thank you fro the bottom of our hearts to Rula and Stefanos for making our honeymoon a dream to remember.
