Nous avons été, une fois de plus, enchantés par nos vacances en Grèce et par l'accueil que nous avons reçu au gîte Theasis de Ktistadès en Epire (propriétaires charmants, hébergement original et de qualité, cadre inoubliable et ambiance authentique dans les villages alentour avec une population très accueillante). Bref, une seule envie : y retourner très vite ! Félicitations pour vos sélections très pertinentes.
