VACANZA A KITHIRA

  • 5 of 5
La casa è molto bella così come appare nelle foto, la posizione in un tranquillo villaggio ci ha permesso di fare una vacanza all'insegna del completo relax. Tutte le comodità (supermercato, benzina ecc) sono vicinissime. E' perfettamente accessoriata ed abbiamo molto gradito (da italiani) la macchina da caffe Nespresso con cialde. L'isola è bellissima, ancora poco turisticizzata,ed ha moltissime spiagge. Le più belle sono facilmente raggiungibili data la posizione centrale della casa.
Abbiamo appfotittato di un periodo climatico ottimo (mai visto una nuvola) e nell'insieme è stata una bella vacanza che ci piacerebbe ripetere.
