Management response:

Thanks for your 5 star review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and that you liked the local tavernas. The beaches at Almyrida and Kokkino Chorio are very different so it was great you took the opportunity to visit both. There also some great beaches in Kalives. We look forward to welcoming you back some time in the future...

Lovely villa with pool and plenty of space as we were a family of four (why is family not an option we can select?) and sleeps 8. Need a car but is near to a beach in Amalyrida.

If you want peace and beautiful scenery this is the place. Paul was wonderful in answering all my questions before hand. The whole space was perfect. Not overlooked, outstanding views, great pool and upstairs barbeque balcony. Two resturants in walking distance, a car is needed. Can't wait to go back.

Management response:

Thank you for your 5 star review. We are glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet and the great views. Guests usually rent a car but some guests ( including my daughters) use the local reliable taxi company instead. We look forward to welcoming you back. Paul
