We spent the night here so that we could easily access the temples and specifically so that we could sit and look at the Temples illuminated at night. We deliberated between here and Villa Athena. We are so pleased we chose this one as it is so close to the temples and such great value. We had the top room which has a very large wrap around terrace facing the ridge from where you can VERY clearly see all the Temples which is fab as the sun goes down and the temples turn a warm gold. You are alone at the top which is fab so we bought food and wine and sat there all evening staring at the ruins, it was superb. The bed was kingsize and comfortable and the room is a good size. It is very clean, as is the bathroom , though getting rid of the bath and replacing it with a large shower would be a bonus.
The breakfast is amazing , you need to be a big eater to really appreciate it , sadly we're not but did manage to eat the gorgeous pistachio croissant.
The owner and her family are charming and more than happy to help with anything you need.
Tip: park in the hotel car park, then walk a minute or two up the road to where the taxi's wait in the car park. 3 euros each to get up to Juno temple entrance, makes life easy in the heat.
