What a great place even in winter, Meli and Andre are excellent hosts, thank you. J&S Greece.

Our wedding night, We could have not wished for a more spectacular view to wake up to, a more stunning place to eat breakfast and a more comfortable place to be the day after our very special day. J&R Hampshire.
