Our third visit to Anastasis Apartments and Despina, as usual, has improved what already felt like perfection. We came back this time specifically to go to the excavations at Akrotiri ( well worth the extra money for a guide incidentally and ask for Eugenia, she's great). We arrived really early at 6.30 in the morning; no problem for Despina who had already arranged an interim room for us - a lovely bedroom with full bathroom, what time would we like our breakfast? When our own room was ready in the afternoon, the staff had already moved all out stuff so no need to move from the sunloungers.
So what's different this time? Well, there's a brand new spa in a traditional cave type of construction. HUGE pool with jacuzzi, amazing steam room and chill out areas. We had a brilliant massage for an hour each which was great value.
Everyone has mentioned all the little treats which Despina gives her guests as standard - lovely tables set up by the caldera edge to enjoy complimentary wine, gorgeous little desserts and cakes at tea time, lovely bed arrangements each night when you go in. And of course, you never,ever need to ask for clean towels, I think we must have had three clean sets a day (basically, everytime you wash, the towels are changed).
For our final breakfast on the day we were departing, we were given champagne cocktails!!! What a send off! And the gorgeous girls - Maria of the amazing hair! Irene the glamorous! and the lovely Katrina (hope that's spent right). Despina - you know what to do. Go out and become president of Greece and run the country!!!
Much love, Ashley and Carole
