The name "Retreat" is very much appropriate!, that's the word that drew us into researching and finally booking this stay at Stefanos and Roula's villas. We were made most welcome by Katarina and the Stefanos came to see us and explained the area, where to go and eat etc and where to explore, nothing was too much bother. When we arrived the fridge was stocked with bread, milk, eggs, cheese, home made cake and marmalade, chocs and wine in our bedroom, it was such a lovely touch and leant that we didn't need to seek out a grocery shop immediately on arrival. We were invited to help ourselves to the fruit on the trees, we had pomegranite, grapes, plums and lemons. The villa is well stocked with kitchen equipment etc and we also had an outdoor BBQ which we used on 2 ocassions. There is also a swimming pool and another outside BBQ area by the swimming pool. We also discovered another swimming pool which you could have had use of too. Thank you Stefanos an Roula for a wonderful opportunity to rest and recharge out batteries, and thanks for having the weather so gorgeous too!. Perhaps one day we shall get back, we hope so, don't change, you have a great formula for taking great care of your clients!, many thanks!
