A peaceful location but within a four minute stroll of a lovely beach and a short taxi ride to the picturesque village of Koutalarfari. Benjamin is the...

I cannot rave enough about home hotel! Ben and Gordon were the absolute best hosts. They have created such a beautiful, welcoming space that you just don't want to leave.

Home is absolutely charming and good value. It's not perfect (it's an old building under new management) but that really doesn't matter as Ben & Gordon are so welcoming and enthusiastic about this place. The room was very clean, with nice touches and a little flower covered terrace to enjoy the evening sun. When I visited the weather was mixed,...
