This delightful hotel can be hard to find when you first arrive, so arrange to get picked up at the airport. They will get your bags from the point where the taxi stops to the hotel while you walk the rest of the way. Once in the hotel you will find it simple to get to and from the harbour. If you have a room with a veranda or balcony you will have a beautiful view of part of the harbour. The floors, stairway and bathrooms are made of marble! Orsa, whose family owns the hotel, was extremely helpful. With our arrivals and departures outside of normal hours she provided a room to change and use the toilet. Her sister Oriana who picked us up at the airport was also great. The breakfast garden under a grape vine bower is a marvellous spot to start the day.
You should be aware that beds in Greece are generally harder than one is accustomed to in North America.
We learned the first night that there are mosquitoes and midges in Greece. Close the windows at night and use the AC.
Exceptional value and service!
