We stayed at the Cavos Inn for 2 weeks and enjoyed the whole 'Greek Experience'. We stayed in apartment 5 which had the most spectacular mountain and sea views from a nice little shady balcony that had 2 comfortable canvas 'directors' style chairs and a small table. The balcony was accessed by large double glazed doors (which when closed reduced the noise of the waves below to inaudible).There is a full length retractable mosquito net that can be used if the balcony doors are left open (although we did not see one mosquito during our holiday). The room itself is compact with comfortable twin beds, a fridge, a free safe and ample cupboard space - the floor is a cooling smooth stone surface ( but perfectly level!).There is a very effective and quiet air-conditioning unit. The furniture has an old fashioned appeal to it but is perfectly functional. There is no bath but a good walk-in shower - although the cubicle is a tad small. There was always plenty of hot water.Towels and sheets were changed on a regular basis.The walls and ceiling in the bedroom were of the white and rough textured variety whereas the bathroom was fully tiled.
Breakfast is taken on the little terrace with the same spectacular views as our apartment - there are only a few tables so it may be necessary to share tables.If you do not want to share just return a little later (breakfast is served from 8.30 to 10.00). But it is nice talking to fellow guests and sharing experiences.The breakfast itself is simple but very nice- essentially meat/cheese one day and a lovely baked 'Spanish' style omlette with sausages the next.There was always delicious home-made cake and fresh fruit salad available.
The wonderful Marianne does all the cooking and cleaning and if you need anything she is only too willing to help.
The Cavos Inn is about 5 minutes downhill walk into Assos (a small but lovely place) - it lies on the edge of a very sheltered bay with a stoney beach where 2 beach beds and an umbrella can be hired for 7 euros. The beach shelves gently into the sea. There is an excellent snack bar (with orange canvas chairs) fronting onto the beach and several good restaurants within a short distance. There are a couple of good mini-markets.
If you want a 5* HOTEL then this is not the place to be but if you want a 5* EXPERIENCE then visit the Cavos Inn (but you must get afull or side sea view room).
