    ** NEW FOR 2014 - PERGOLA OVER OUTDOOR DINING TABLE - SHADE FOR BREAKFAST AND LUNCH

    Villa Estia - named after the Greek Goddess 'Hestia' (the Goddess of the Household) for obvious reasons.

    For eating out there are plenty of good quality Tavernas nearby.

    In this peaceful and private place you can completely relax and yet be only a few minutes from either the sea, the beach or the mountains.
