3/5 Okay

Privacy plus
This is a magical property for travellers seeking privacy and a wonderful setting and prepared to compromise in other areas (outside bathroom, poor car access/parking, damp second bedroom, steep internal and external stairs, no oven, ironing board, wifi or tv). Much as we enjoyed the experience of staying in this property, as seasoned travellers with 15 rented holiday properties behind us, we did not consider this good value for money.

4/5 Good

Beautiful and Historic Stone House
We really enjoyed the seclusion and the peaceful ambience of the old stone building. There are quiet courtyards and a high balcony to spend time outside. The kitchen is well-equipped, the house simply and comfortably furnished and though off the grid so no wifi/tv, there are books to read and good maps provided. Although at the end of a small, quiet road, it was really easy to visit local beaches, tavernas, supermarkets and the nearby walking trails. Local contacts Lina and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. Point to note, you will need to provide your own drinking water. All in all a great place to stay to make the most of this delightful part of Greece.

5/5 Excellent

Wunderbar gelegenes Haus
Die Lage ist wirklich aussergewöhnlich, abgeschieden und ruhig in herrlicher Natur und dennoch sehr nah zu den Stränden, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Bars/Restaurants. Das Haus ist sehr liebevoll gestaltet und wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt. Einziger Kritikpunkt: es gibt keinen richtigen Ofen und der "portable Grill" ist ein billiges Elektroteil welches wir nichtmal ausprobieren wollten. Insgesamt ist die Unterkunft aber sehr zu empfehlen

5/5 Excellent

Individuelle Unterkunft
Sehr schön gelegenes Haus, liebevoll gestaltet und gut ausgestattet, das eine interessante Geschichte hat, die vor Ort auf angenehme Weise zu spüren ist. Mit Auto gut zu erreichende Strände mit guten Bademöglichkeiten. Freundliche und verbindliche Kommunikation von der ersten Anfrage bis zur Abreise. Für Menschen, die einen individuellen Ort für ihren Urlaub suchen sehr zu empfehlen.

3/5 Okay

Nice but pictures from the website should be updated
Inside the house, eveything was aligned with the pictures... but outside, we arrived in a kind of jungle. Also, we never found the sand beach from the webside. The place was quiet, nice and with a great history... even if too rustic (no drinkable water, no connectivity (no Wi-Fi, nor 4G), no parking place for mid-size car, old towels and bed sheets, humidity in one of the room, ...) The external shower was great to refresh ourselves. It has been a nice week but we were a little bit disappointed due to the gap between the pictures and the reality. Our feeling is that, if the current state remain, the price should be reduced.
