Decided to have a quick weeks holiday before our daughter went back to school...managed to get a cheap flight flying 2 days later- and looked for a room... as we were travelling alone - husband instisted we made contact with the owners of the Irene - he wanted us to a) be safe b) have good accomodation c) have good working air con because of the very high temperatires happening at that time... Luckily for us they had a vacant apartment.
We have stayed at these apartments many times - but it was a great pleasure to see that our bathroom had been reburbished very recently, there were new curtains and matching bed covers.. and best of all a good black out curtain over the glass apartment "front" door... in the past I admit to taking black card board and masking tape - this had been the only drawback in the past...if you slept in the living area then the sun came in the room very early.. BUT now no problem...
The owners have rented out the bar and this is run by a very friendly lady called Irene - whose husband is a local policeman..
her salad were quite plentiful for the money..
As ever this property is one of our favorites (along with the Olive Grove).. the position is excellent 2 minute walk thru a small field/gitty to the village..
As ever it was a pleasure to see the owners Mike & Golfa... plus visiting daughter Irene - son in law Vios and toddler Micky - growing fast.. plus new baby Vasilli ( I think "!)
We shall of course in the future...
