We really enjoyed our two-weeks stay in this very comfortable and well-equipped villa. The house is located in a quiet environment in the hills above Stoupa offering panoramic views over the bay. It is ideal for a laid-back vacation. There are no bars, restaurants or supermarkets in the near vicinity, and you will need a car, but it is only a less than 10 minutes drive down to the nearest beach. The owner, Akis, lives in the neighbouring vila or, if fully booked, in a nearby village and has been a very pleasant and helpful host.
