Fantastic views over the Ionian Sea with plenty of beds around the saltwater pool. It is a good 25/30 mins walk to town (downhill alongside the sea) but that gives it a fabulous view point overlooking the sea. Due to the small amount of apartments it is not overcrowded and the peace around the pool area was very welcome. Small snack bar serving drinks and snacks open all day apart from 5-7pm. Cannot fault the cleanliness of the rooms or the quality of the apartment block, disappointed that we did not get a room with a balcony or sea view - think we had the only studio without either but no matter, we just sat by the pool until the sun went in. The studio was pretty basic, I would not recommend cooking in there as all there was was a couple of rings - but we eat out every night so we weren't bothered - however, something to think about if you like to cook and eat in. Every night we walked the 25/30 minutes into Skala which was a pleasant walk alongside the sea - however there are no pavements and the road is uneven - the traffic is minimal but we got a taxi back every night to avoid doing the trip back in the dark. No problems though as the taxis were 5euro fixed fare. Loads of places to eat in Skala (recommend Galera and Symposium) and to drink - make sure you hit the Captains Bar for happy hour cocktails (6-9pm). Went to Poros for the day (15euro by taxi) which was nice but small, also went North to Fiskardo which was a lovely fishing village - well worth a visit but a long bus ride. If you are looking for some quiet peace on a lovely looking island then this is the place for you - if I was going back I would definitely pick these apartments again.
