Had a two day stay in June 2013. Room very adequate for my daughter and I. Thought the cost of the room was a good value. Owners helpful and knowledgable about the area. Told us about a good hiking location and even lent us their map. Also volunteered to help with some genealogical research. Country around Tholos is very rugged with deep canyons. Roads allow for a nice stroll through the woods and fields with views of the mountains. Ate one dinner there which we enjoyed. No wifi but it is a short ride to town and a bar with free wifi.Worth a return visit.
