I hope that anyone who makes it all the way to Greece goes the extra kilometers to visit Chios, and stay at the Lida Mary. My daughter and I selected Lida Mary based on reviews and the.personal care we received from Tasos exceeded our expectations. There was no detail too mundane for him to attend to. He gave us a tour of all the available rooms, then asked us what we wanted. He rescued is when we got a flat tire in our rental car, out in the middle of,nowhere. Tasos also. told us how to locate the best local beaches, restaurants, and sights. I'm putting in a big plug for the Caves at Olympi. They were only a few minutes away by car and I went twice. The first time it was just me and my daughter, the second time, I got a private tour...
The castle was totally done inside and the loft/downstairs combination was perfect for our needs. This is not a regular trip. The village of Mesta will transport you back in time. It is a slice of medieval life. Go, go, go!
