Scala is a beautifully quiet and relaxing family-run place, set 100 metres up a small lane with only ten apartments, nice dining area and sea views. The beach and small shop are ten minutes walk with two tavernas close by. It's very clean and family friendly. Furthermore, the home-cooked dinners are excellent and nicely priced. In fact, despite one restaurant (which was on par) we didn't eat better during our 18-day trip to Athens and the Greek islands.
There is one key point that needs highlighting in particular: hospitality. I've stayed at a few places over the years and I have NEVER experienced the hospitality Nikos, Evangelia and their family provided. Nothing was too much trouble. They went far beyond expectation, from picking us up at the port (post-booking extra service with no charge), lending us bikes (no charge), driving us to a competitively priced hire-car company (no charge) and numerous generous gestures that made our stay very special. It is easy to see that they are genuine people who love what they do and just wanted to make us feel at home. In fact, I embarrassed myself by offering a tip at the end of the stay, which was graciously refused. Sorry Nikos! The issue is that we have since and will for some time at least, compare the hospitality from Scala with that of other accommodation. Nothing comes up to the mark. We're left saying: "The people were friendly and helpful, but it's not as good as Scala Apartments." Many thanks again for a fantastic stay.
