Villa Kalithea is one of a group of three detached villas, each set in its own garden and boasting its own private pool, and affording a good degree of privacy from each other.

My family and I had a bit of flight problems and it took us over 24 hours to finally get to our villa but when I woke up and saw the view it was completely worth it. The pictures do not do it justice. The...More
