Interaction with guests
We live downstairs in the studio apartment. We very much leave the guests to themselves, as we appreciate their privacy. However, we welcome them when they arrive and give a quick tour of Casa Sophia so they know where everything is and to hand over the keys. We provide an Information Pack which includes everything they need to know about Casa Sophia, and important telephone numbers they might want eg. Doctors and local amenities. We also provide extensive information about walks, sites to see, maps and many others things of interest in the region, with some suggested tours of the local area. We are also available if there are any problems or the guests need advice – we are very keen to make our guests feel at home.

About the neighbourhood
The Pyrgos / Stoupa area has a diverse countryside, with a rich mix of beaches, harbours, olive groves and villages surrounded by impressive mountains and Mediterranean blue sea. It is an oasis untouched by the current troubles where it seems that time has stood still. Pyrgos goes back to the 1400s and has the most magnificent view of the sea and coast from its perch on a hill top plateaux. The very name Pyrgos; meaning Tower; adds to ones imagination of the views it provides. The local cafe in the square is an ideal place to sit and enjoy the atmosphere of this enchanting village of cobbled alleyways. A must is a drive around the mountain villages behind Pyrgos where lunch or dinner can be enjoyed.
Getting around
The best way to get around this area and to the sites is by car. A car is essential in this area.
