Just back from our stay in Arosmari village retreat. We stayed in Mint cottage which was extremely well fitted out and had a private, secluded outside seating area, albeit over the "road" from the pool etc. The pool and breakfast area etc were very well designed and appointed and the breakfast itself was plentiful, varied and delicious. It makes a very pleasant change to go somewhere self-catering and find small foody items such as olive oil & balsamic vinegar are provided. Vamos village is only 5 minutes walk away, has three tavernas and gives off a " real" Greek village feel.I say this as much of the surrounding resort type areas are very commercialised, which makes a walk around Vamos so pleasant by comparison.
I heartily recommend Arosmari.
