George is the owner and really welcoming - within minutes of our arrival he was offering a drink and biscuits. He was able to make recommendations for local restaurants. The small street at the front of the... More

I stayed at villa condessa/contessa in July on a girls holiday. The hotel itself is lovely, nice and clean and the rooms were ideal for what we wanted. George and his father made us feel so welcome, giving us raki shots on arrival and departure and singing songs to us with his ukulele before we left. The hotel is only... More
