We stayed here for half term week, we had 2 apartments, a 1 bedroom and a mezzanine, both with sea views. Both were very nicely furnished to a good standard.
The transfers were arranged by the owners and the taxis were very reasonable , Anna also checked that there was enough room for our luggage which was very helpful, transfers were good and we arrived midday in beautiful sun.
This is an amazingly pretty complex, the flowers tumble out of pots and around the terraces and balconies. The pool is not massive but more than adequate and clean and cool. Sunbeds and umbrellas are supplied. The bar is well stocked and our host Vangelis was friendly and efficient. Both apartments were spotless, very nicely furnished with plenty of crockery, cutlery etc, more than enough to self cater, plus the addition of a grill so we were able to make toast to go with our boiled eggs (egg cups supplied!) good size fridge. Beds comfy, towels are very fluffy!
We know the villages and it was just a short walk to some of our favourite spots. The beach is about a 15-20 minute down hill walk, a taxi back is 7 euros but worth it, you are on holiday! Best beach for us is Nana beach near the open air museum, ( a must, so interesting, closed Saturdays) family friendly and nice tavernas, along past Star beach to the right.
All in all a very very nice week, thank you Villa Diktynna
