This place is a calm elegant retreat in an Island full of naturalistic opportunities. The owner Mr. Spiros and his wife surprised us with some simple unexpected gifts during the stay.

We stayed there with a friend in 2014. Though the beauty of the place, the cleanliness of the rooms and the amazing garden with the stunning views are surely a draw, nothing compares to the hospitality of the owners, who even went out of their way to drive us to town when we could not find a taxi.
