Villa Estia - named after the Greek Goddess 'Hestia' (the Goddess of the Household) for obvious reasons. Inspired by local architect Konstantinos Korakakis the villa - in its own one acre plot of gardens, olive trees and natural landscape - is designed to be in 'tune' with the local surroundings. Its location, overlooking the sea with mountain views does exactly that. 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.

With a living are of 200sqm there is a genuine feelin... Read more

We were looking for a nice relaxing holiday that had sufficient activities to keep two young children happy and its safe to say, this delivered. The location itself is a few minutes away from the beach along a gravel track but with a car (which we would recommend), you are a few minutes away from several sandy beaches and friendly... more
