I'm reluctantly writing this review. Why? If the secret that is Amalia gets out, then the wonderful holiday accomodation we enjoyed via a "last minute" booking from a well known .com website means it will probably be swamped with folks and the chances of us getting back to it will be severely compromised.
So, why review it then?
Listen (and I'm only going to whisper this), it is fantastic. No really. It is that good. There are four apartments (twin bedrooms) that want for nothing. They all have massive balconies that look across olive groves to the Mediterranean. Watching the sun set as you sit down to enjoy dinner on your own private balcony is an everyday occurrence here.
If you've been self-catering before in Greece then you'll know that facilities are often just about okay for cooking. Not here. Fully fitted kitchen with built-in oven and four ring cooking. Check. Large built-in fridge freezer. Check. Kettle and toaster. Check. Sufficient crockery/cutlery/glassware and cooking utensils/pots & pans. Check.
Alright, we've established that the food prep side of things is sorted.
Bet the bathroom lets it down?
There is a bath and a shower-over-it with strong and consistent water pressure.
Temperatures are also constant.
Bet they don't have a washing machine?
Not in your apartment, but there is a utility room descretely screened off from the pool that has one.
Whats the pool like?
In a word: Awesome
Super clean and the surrounding area has plenty of sunbeds and tables beneath parasols to shelter from the sun.
What I haven't mentioned is the satellite TV and DVD provision.
Or the library in the entrance hall (all the books are in english).
Or the fact that the pool area is lit up at night and looks amazing.
Okay, its a 20 minute walk/stroll into town.
So to sum up...please I beg you don't stay here, its terrible and you will have the worst holiday of your entire life. You will be doing me a massive personal favour by avoiding this place. Avoid at all costs. It is horrible. The worst place to stay in Stoupa.
Phew, think they bought it.
Oh forgot to mention, no WIFI.
Not a deal-breaker for me but might be for some :)
