The owners were always helpful with tips and guidance, and also offered to book trip for us, in case we wanted to. The place is very close to both the city and the beach. It's also very conveniently...

A week’s stay with my girlfriend and son in this B&B was exactly what I was looking for. Tranquility, safety, home feeling ambiance with good breakfast at 4 EURO and staff always being there when you need them. Blown away by their hospitality, thanks a lot for arranging our last minute tours to Samaria and Balos. I will definitely use...

My wife and I had a lovely time at Summer Lodge for 2 weeks in September 2016. The rooms are very comfortable and the refrigerator is an added bonus. We had some lovely walks around the area but spent most afternoons lazing by the pool. Vassilis and Rebecca were such friendly hosts and nothing seemed too much to help us...
