Tsoutsouros – Zorba’s & Triton Hotel

As you are by now well aware, we come back to Greece every few years, so, we have 'favorite' places and we also have places that we say "feels-like-home"... well Tsoutsouros is one of those places and Zorba's restaurant is our feels-like-home place to eat when we stay at the Triton Hotel. Tsoutsouros is a… Continue reading Tsoutsouros – Zorba’s & Triton Hotel

Kalypso Cretan Village Resort and Spa

One of our favorite places, and one we return to every time we come to Greece, is the small town of Plakias. It has become a bit more crowded over the past few years and prices are also continuing to rise. Unfortunately, we decided not to stay right in the town this visit. So, we… Continue reading Kalypso Cretan Village Resort and Spa

The Akrogiali Beach Apartments

We arrived mid-afternoon to be greeted by our hostess, given our keys, and instructions. We were weary… Continue reading The Akrogiali Beach Apartments

The Sunset Beach Hotel

Another 'feels-like-home' family run hotel, the Sunset Beach Hotel, has been a favorite of ours since we stumbled upon it in 2012. It is one of the best run, most well kept, and beautiful hotels in Greece and just a short drive from Athens. The winding street coming into the small town of Xiropigado gives… Continue reading The Sunset Beach Hotel

Mare Dei Suites Ionian Resort

The crystal clear water laps at your toes and you fall into the blanket… Continue reading Mare Dei Suites Ionian Resort

Phillipi Museum

We are always on the look-out for another museum.
