My husband and arrived at Kripia on the first of March and stayed there until the end of May. The little stone house exceeded our expectations and we were really sad to leave.The views were more stunning and the property was bigger than expected and well laid out.
There were two living areas at right angles to each other, one of which contained a small kitchen / dining area and TV and both of which contained a sofa bed. There was also a bathroom (with small bath) and a large bedroom with ample storage space. This had a most comfortable bed with Coco-mat pillows.
Antonia, the owner organised internet access for us.
Outside there were two terraces, both with great views and shelter from the weather. Even though it was cold in March we always had our breakfast outside, looking at view.
There was also an area behind the house for hanging out clothes.
It was very peaceful and quiet- the only noise being birdsong and the occasional donkey braying. A ten minute walk brought you to the beach ( pebbles) with clean beautiful sea.
In Spring there were many wild flowers and there were many lovely walks into and around Kardamili.
At Easter our son and five year old grandson came to visit. The sofa bed was very comfortable. There was plenty of safe outside space in which to play. There was virtually no traffic. ( Kripia is right at the end of the track) It was great weather for walking and it was possible to swim without freezing.
The house is big enough for 3 couples, or a family with up to 4 children. Kripia as a whole, would be an ideal choice for several families/couples who would like to be together but still have their privacy and peace and quiet. In summer one could just go to the beach and enjoy Kardamili or you could use it for a base to explore the whole area.
The owners Antonia and Tasos could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. We had an amazing 3 months.
