The accommodation did not disappoint -simple but in a stunning location. The friendliness and helpfulness of the owner exceeded expectations. Though situated downhill with an uphill climb to the bus stop, we took the uphill walk only once. The owner was always there to offer a lift to the bus stop which was appreciated by my friend and I. He generously allowed us to pick figs on the property any time we wanted. Never have I felt so at ease at a place as I felt at this place.

Our thermal pool, whose temperature varies between 32C to 36C, is refilled each morning with pure, natural hot thermal waters.

The waters in the pool have therapeutic properties, which are reputed to assist in the cure of arthritis. In addition, the waters aid circulation and help maintain muscle tone as well as stimulate the skin. Sorgeto Bay is rich in hot thermal springs in the Mediterranean Sea where one can bathe in the sea, even in Winter. In some places, the sea is so hot that it would be possible to boil eggs and potatoes. And more: if a turfacean stone is scratched, a mud can be obtained which can be used for making a beauty musk for the face. ... more less
