Guestbook comments from the manager
My family and relatives stayed in the house for one week . The view was stunning, really beautiful. The house had an interesting architecture and was very clean. Everything you could ask for was in the house. The house had different stages witch was perfect if you wanted your own space for a while. The owners were very helpful and service minded! The sea was only a few steps away. A car is necessary to go for groceries or to visit restaurants in the area. Two restaurants and a mini market was in walking distance. I definitely recommend this house!
