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

Gigilos Hotel & Restaurant – Agia Roumeli

At the very bottom of the Samaria Gorge is a quaint little town that straddles the sea shore for about 1000 meters. It is not only small and intimate but very friendly. The ferry docks at the only dock and you drive right up the center of the cobble stone street to the only main… Continue reading Gigilos Hotel & Restaurant – Agia Roumeli

Diamond Palace Hotel – Gytheio

Built in the 'castle'Mani style this hotel shows it's traditional side as well as the beachy feel of a modern seaside hotel. Nice! A newer hotel with lots of updates.

The Akrogiali Beach Apartments

Yes, I know this is the second of that name on this trip but what better way to spend time than 'at the end of the beach' as the name means! This is the small village of Akrogiali!

Mare Dei Suites Ionian Resort

The soft sand stretches like a golden ribbon across the private sun-drenched beach, tucked into a secluded cove. You feel compelled toward the sea. The warmth of the sand filters through your toes and you can anticipate the cool refreshing water. The crystal clear water laps at your toes and you fall into the blanket… Continue reading Mare Dei Suites Ionian Resort

A Special Place- Mytikas

The Dionisos Hotel has been a favorite of ours since 2012 when we spent a few days here and again later in 2015. Now we are back to another place that 'feels-like-home'. Our hosts son has taken over the day-to-day operations but still remembers us from previous trips. Welcomed again with joy and open arms… Continue reading A Special Place- Mytikas
