Here’s what Katrina wrote
“As a young family of 4 we really enjoyed our two week stay. We had lots of space inside and outside the property for the children to play. However, I wouldn’t recommend for children under 4 years old, due to the stairs and balconies. The accommodation is functional but basic. The location is tricky to find but beautiful. The photos of the property really don’t do it justice.
The children spent many hours in the pool and they both learnt to swim during our stay as we often had it to ourselves. It was great to have the Taverna at the back for easy meals and the owner was very friendly. This is a great location to explore the area but you will need a car. A great holiday that we will remember fondly for many years to come.”
