we stayed at the hotel for 4 nights, we had originally booked for 2 but decided that the place was just so magical we would stay a couple of nights longer.
the owner was a lovely man, quiet and friendly and full of help for the confused traveler. we felt as though we got to know him when we stayed there after chats while we dined in their fantastic restaurant for breakfasts and dinners. the food was absolutely divine.
the room was better than we expected it to be, it was very inexpensive and that was perfect. we weren't too interested in it being luxurious because there was so much to do outside of our room, but it was very comfortable and relaxing. you could hear the sea while you lay on the bed and read a book, or sit on the balcony and have a coffee or some wine. it was as luxurious as i wanted. we were left to relax without having to worry about house keeping knocking to service our room, and the family was very pleasant and understanding of our needs.
an amazing part of this wonderful little hotel was that it was on a gorgeous alley with shops and great music sounding from the hotel's restaurant, with a view of the sea or a medieval castle.
the hotel was close enough to everything should you wish to go swimming on the wonderful beaches, explore the castle ruins, walk the dock or get in a boat to go down the Acheron River, or exploring the surrounding islands and beaches.
this was one of the fondest memories of my first trip to Greece, we will come back and we will stay at the lovely little Avra hotel again when we do.
after staying in so many places that were below average for a larger price, Avra is definitely the Best choice we made!
a big thank you to the family for making our stay so pleasant!!
