A beautiful secluded pool is set between the trees and cliffs.

Beach: beautiful beach after walking 800m through olive trees and more wonderful beaches nearby, some very quiet (of course, the secluded cottages pool is available at your doorstep)
Food: many taverns with healthy food at a short walking distance (or you can use the cooking facilities of your cottage if you prefer). You can also visit the nearby village of Pefki up the gorge, to dine with a beautiful view.

Village: don’t miss the opportunity to visit Pefki village at the top of the gorge, by trekking or by taxi.
