Three years ago we bumped into Yiannis retreat and spent 1 night after which we decided to spend more time in the following year. We did so and reserved 3 nights after which we decided to spend more time in the following summer. Last summer we spend a whole week, infact our entire vacation, in this wonderful place and plan to come again and again. The place built and operated by this wonderful couple, Yiannis and Katerina, is so inviting that we believe we can spend even longer periods there and enjoy the tranquility, the beauty of the place and the nice company of Yiannis and Katerina.
