Rooms with panoramic sea view are very good!
The rooms with panoramic sea view (big balcony) are the best choice when deciding to stay here. We upgraded our room to one of them and became very happy. The owner and hosts are very kind and will take care of you during your stay. Thanks for taking care of us!

Great View, accommodation and location
We stayed last year and rebooked including a superior room this time. The room was fantastic. Good facilities in the apartment (but no microwave). The views out to sea were amazing. Lovely balcony with lounger. Bathroom and shower 5*. We were at the end of the season but still lots to do in the area. Great beach restaurant with sunbeds and Wi-Fi just across the road (Ammos). Lots of restaurants and bars in walking distance. Lady that checked us in/out was very helpful
