A windy road takes you up from Aigion through ever more beautiful countryside. After about 15 to 20 minutes you enter the small village of Lakka. A place property developers and unsitely buildings have fortunately overlooked. The elegant Gero Fotis is at the end of a lane full of charming houses. The patio takes in an amazing view. The apartment is old style and very homey.
It is a wonderful place to relax, and sufficiently close to the main coast roads to make it practical. There are some wonderful Tavernas nearby. The one above the village of Lakka is so home style it is like being invited to dinner by the locals.
Vassiliki and her son Dimos are extremely helpful and the breakfast features organic local produce (the jam is the best we have ever had!). Highly recomended for those wanting to escape the charmless, modern hospices you find all too often.
