We will try and keep this short as we could really write a book about this place. When you first get there Magda & Achilles (owners) make you feel very welcome and almost part of the family. The atmosphere is very relaxed, in great surroundings that Achilles especially takes pride in getting and maintaining to his and Madga's high standards.
If you want a holiday in a typical traditional Greek village with a good atmosphere without all the commercial attributes of some of the larger resorts, then this is the place to go.
The hotel itself is fantastic and of a very high standard. We always choose carefully where we stay on holiday, and do not go less than 4*. We can say that Achtis is a min. of a 4* with the use of good quality furnishings throughout. The pillows are the best we have ever had in any hotel which helped get some of the best nights sleep ever!
The village of Afitos is superb, with great taverners and little boutique shops. The village is small and you will have probably explored it all within the first 3-4 days, but we never really got bored of the size during the 2 week stay and always seemed to find somewhere new. We drove around some of the other villages/resorts in Kassandra and spoke to several people and the conclusion was that Afitos is the best resort, unless you like a bit of England when on holiday, in which case the other resorts further down the coast may be to your liking.
On our last day we felt quite sad to be leaving and could have easily stayed another week. We feel we have met some fantastic people and made friends in Magda, Achilles, Matt, Christina, Sarah, Natalie and the chef Anna, and would not hesitate to go back to this hotel in the future and would recommend it to anyone. The other reviews are true and do it justice.
