If you're looking for a peaceful, relaxing, laid back holiday, this is it! Family run Taverna who all make sure you're looked after. Big thanks to Mama Koula and Andiopi, Mama's home cooking was just that, 'home cooking', unlike the surrounding generic frozen offerings, and Andiopi, so lovely and friendly. We had room 33, top floor, large, basic, but with everything you need. (Who goes on holiday needing TV and microwave!!), sun all afternoon on the balcony, perfect. We borrowed their sun loungers and umbrellas every day and used them on the beach in front of Taverna, ok, this beach is pebbley, but hey, it's right outside the door, also it avoids all the usual crowds you get on the sandy beaches with rows and rows of beach beds. The sea was fantastic. Some days like a mill pond and others with amazing surf because of the strong breeze, (which was gratefully received due to the heat), recommend taking beach shoes to wear in and out the sea tho' as the stones can make a graceful entrance and exit impossible. As an aside, we did visit a couple of places for drinks/eats, highly recommend The Milena, food excellent quality and the red wine also. Also try the Kondimar Bar, more upmarket for drinks, music and cool surroundings. Would we come again, probably not, but then we don't like to visit the same place twice. Would we recommend, absolutely!!
