Customer Reviews

PATRICK L. / France / June, 2018
Accueil très sympa, Nikolaos, le propriétaire, est disponible, prévenant et très aimable ; excellents conseils et renseignements sur les activités, le pays, les bonnes adresses de restaurant ! appartement très confortable, climatisé, literie confortable ; mise à disposition de quelques produits de 1ère nécessité fournis (miel, huile et autres condiments, oranges du pays, biscottes, café, etc) ; manque un dispositif dans la salle de bain pour faire sécher les serviettes de toilettes ! il serait utile de préciser que la route pour monter à Zourva est une petite route de montagne ! Nous recommandons vivement ce gîte.
