Paul is a generous and fabulous host. He really made our stay on this fascinating island and his local knowledge dating back 40 years ago to when he helped on archaeological digs was invaluable. We booked two half day tours as we had a few days but this morphed into lifts into town and to see sunrise one day as well as the tours which worked perfectly for us although you may want to rent one of his cars on days you are not touring.
We paid a bit extra and got the big house which we didn't regret, lots of space, comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen.
You can walk into town and to the shops (don't expect a massive range here, things run out regularly as well). Ideally head down to the sea and walk along the coast as much more interesting with statues etc., it takes maybe 30 minutes.
WiFi was a touch flaky but this is an island wide problem, best to go with low expectations and anything more is a bonus.
We really can't recommend Paul enough!
