We stayed in Helianthos 1 in the pretty village of Douliana for 6 nights in September. This is a lovely 2 storey house, tons of room for a couple. The house has been modernised, but not lost its character. It is one of four clustered around a beautiful pool. The pool is shared but mostly we had it to ourselves (outside of school holidays). George, Chrystal and Klio were very helpful at the agency. Our plane was delayed, but George and Christina (owner) didn't complain about our arrival in Vamos around midnight. We enjoyed the cooking class in Vamos. We left an item by mistake at the house, and the staff very helpfully posted it to us later.
Strongly recommended if you're looking for a peaceful Mediterranean holiday in a "local", interesting area.
