We worked with Eleni to plan this memorable and special trip to Greece and I cannot stress how fantastic she was to work with. From day 1, she listened and adjusted schedules and basically gave us an experience that we will never forget. I made numerous changes to the itinerary and she was always pleasant and professional. She also worked with our budget and was able to include some phenomenal experiences based on our requests and desires. The entire trip flowed flawlessly. All the hotels were AMAZING and the experiences were definitely UNFORGETTABLE. Our trip to Metoera was so unique and seeing the monasteries in their unique environment was fantastic. Each of our transfers was there on time and we never had any issues. Finally, our favorites were some experiences in Mykonos and Santorini...in Mykonos we had an amazing sailing cruise for 7 hours and we loved it. In Santorini we had a sunset sailing cruise with delicious food and also this great wine tasting experience. I cannot recommend Eleni highly enough and we would definitely go back again and use her for planning our trip!

We were met at the hotel and taken to the fast ferry by an individual whose name I cannot remember. In fact we were always met on time in each location but the names of the driver's escape me. Nonetheless they were all punctual and most pleasant.
Our next stop was Cyros, where he stayed as an unbelievably amazing suite with a beautiful large deck overlooking the ocean! The proprietor [Doddy] and her daughter were most gracious and helpful. The breakfasts they provided were outstanding.
Our next stop was Naxos, and it was the least favorite places on the trip. The room we stayed in was somewhat dark, and although it did have a view of the ocean, between us and the ocean was a parking lot and a field. The breakfast was outstanding but not in the building we were staying in, Although the location was not bad, it was not great either. We would not recomend this hotel. The highlight of the island was the car rental [which I would highly recommend for both islands] and our tourof the Island.
The final stop was the highlight of the trip which was Santorini. The accomodationds were unbelieveable, as was the hostess, Again great breakfasts. We took a guided tour of the Island ending in a wine tasting location, and we probably no more about Santorini than we do about Victoria where we live. The guide on the tour was the key reason that it was such a success. We are uncertain about his name but believe it was Bosnos, or something similar. Most informative and entertaining as well! On the last day we went on a sunset cruise on a catamaran, and although the sea was quite rough, it was well worth taking gravol and enjoying the scenery and company. The staff on the boat were most gracious, serving beer, wine and a very good dinner. It was a nice way to finish off our visit to Greece.

Antonio on Syros went above and beyond with his tour. It was the "white glove" treatment. I recommend him. The Akron Hotel was beautiful and the view from our window spectacular.
On to Naxos - we would have liked being closer to the beach but everything was very good. The second day was very windy so we shifted great and toured the marble city instead of Plaka Beach. Our driver spoke no English so it was a quiet ride, We toured the Kastelo and the next day on the food tour with Kyriaki we visited all but 2 of the stops we went to the day before. Glad to see our choices validated!
Then to Santorini; what a beautiful place! the room was exquisite. our favorite right after the Akron. We would recommend room 22b at the Makris Beach hotel! Bello was our tour guide for the trip to Oia, he was excellent, keep him. Our day trip on the catamaran was stunning. We were on the Time Out. The captain and crew we competent and hard working, seeing the city of Oia and the beaches from the water was a unique perspective. Snorkling was lovely as was the on-baord food. The icing on the cake was when the captain stopped the boat so we could all see the sun go down into the Agean sea. Truly memorable. The only thing I would have wanted was late check out from the Makris Beach Hotel, we could have enjoyed the beach one more time.

A very nice hotel but its location was not great. Surrounded on two sides bu dirt parking lot and a short walk to the beach area. The walk could be anxious with virtually no sidewalk and traffic. Oddly they had a Nespresso machine in the room with the pods but no cups, creamer or sugar. That was not a big problem as I easily went down to the breakfast area to get coffee for the room but other may not like it, Last the shower was not nearly as nice as in the other hotels. It was impossible to keep the water from soaking the floor,

Greece was so amazing that I really do not know where to begin. First, KimKim and Chris were incredible. Chris took the time to talk to me and my wife and really try to understand the type of trip we were after - we wanted to explore on our own, sail on a small boat and see all the sights but not be with a big group.

He put together an 18 day extravaganza that included local guides in Athens (Thanks Apollo !), a car rental with us driving around Greece to Delphi, Olympia, Nafplio and all the amazing sites in between. We had lunch with an amazing family of olive oil makers, we toured a winery (that our local guide in Athens suggested), incredible accommodations at each city (we stayed in Galaxidi, Katakolo and Nafplio). The driving was easy and fun and gave us the flexibility to do what we wanted. We made a circle around the Bay of Corinth, returned to Athens and flew to Mykonos. In Mykonos we hopped on a 40 foot sailboat.

We sailed with naxos-yachting.com and had an incredible crew - shout out to Akis and Anna. They took us to Delos, Paros, Naxos, Schinousa and Santorini. Each port was mind blowing and after 4 days of sailing, they are friends for life. They had so much local knowledge and got us off the beaten path - we hit restaurants that only the locals use, we jumped off cliffs, we swam in caves and at one point we found ourselves sitting on the front porch of an old couple's house, laughing and drinking some homemade liquor with them - us not speaking a lick of Greek and them not speaking a lick of English - amazing.

We ended the trip with a few restful days on Santorini - we had wine tour, a boat ride through the caldera and more amazing accommodations - Santorini is like a movie set.

We travel a lot and expect small things/inconveniences to pop up. Honestly, did not have a single one. Every time Chris had planned a driver - they were there on time and professional. Every flight - we had our tickets, transfer etc. Every hotel, they were waiting for us. Unreal.

All in all, one of the best trips of my life.

Nafplio is a must see. While I tell everyone that the people I met in Greece were the nicest people in the world, the staff at this hotel topped the list. The young ladies that worked the desk and the breakfast area were delights. They were super helpful, took care of getting our laundry done, hooked us up with suggested beach spots and kept the ice buckets full (which in Europe is amazing). The rooms were large, big ceilings and great. The food at the restaurant (breakfast was included) was great, so good that we stayed for dinner one night.

Was a total different than what the agenda said. The guides were still wonderful and Chef Livio was an absolute charm. We thought we were going into he countryside but apparently the Italy organizer was under the impression we were adamant about keeping it personal just for us. If we were asked we all agreed that we would have preferred the original pan even if it meant we would be with other people. One other drawback was the accommodations in Naples. The place itself was fine it was the dreadful neighborhood! We tried to venture out and each time went back to the hotel to eat both lunch and dinner! Pretty scary in that area.

Andreas, who was our guide in Chania for the food tour was also awesome! The only trip I would caution planning for people is the Samaria Gorge hike. We consider ourselves very fit for our age, but we found it to be a bit strenuous. We are glad we completed it, but we would never do it again. Were the views worth it??? Maybe. We have hiked the west in the USA and have seen the same and we didn't have to put near the effort into those hikes!
Nicoletta at the Grotta hotel was the nicest, most generous person. She is the owner and you feel the love the minute you walk into the hotel.
Tinos was our favorite island.
I could go on and on, but honestly, we do not have one complaint. Harris did a spectacular job and had great patience dealing with us throughout the planning stages with Covid.

One hiccup we had was the ferry from Athens to Mykanos was canceled due to bad weather and the ground staff responded promptly to make alternate arrangements. All the hotels were neat and located close to central streets. Kimkim took the headache of detailed planning from us and we will recommend them to our friends and ourselves use them on our next Europe adventure.

He gave options, asked questions, got on the phone so we could work out some of the intricacies... attentive and genuinely curious...he wanted this trip to be magical. And it was! Other notes about Christos and travel12 (the on the ground support) were little touches like having our boarding passes for the following day printed at our hotels when we arrive, checking in to ask how the trip is going, and fast responses when we did have questions.

The first week of the trip was self planned. Christos coordinated a rental car and Kyros at Kosmos rental car was so easy to work with. He called me when we landed and told me exactly how to find him. It was a smooth and caring transition after a 19 hour flight. This week included Monemvasia, a full tour of the Mani peninsula, sea kayaking in Kardimyli, Mycenae, Nafplio, and so many wonderful beaches, tavernas, and new friends.

The Athens/parthenon day of the trip was interesting (hot and tiring as well but it was also August). We did the mythology tour with Eleni as a host and learned a lot, had fun seeing the sites while also learning. Christos booked us a wine tasting dinner that evening at Cinque wine bar. The wines were wonderful, the food was delicious, the parings were unique and the education about Greek wine making was fantastic. The staff were all so friendly and it was proper greek dinner (3 hours of leisurely enjoying and being with family and friends).

On to Meteora! Words lack for the absolute wonder that is Meteora. Our guide... the only one whose name I don't remember but her style and knowledge were off the charts! She was really wonderful, answered questions, gave us time where we were curious and made sure to get us to a sunset view (even skipped the crowded one and took us to a better spot). We were super hungry as the tour wrapped up so she drove us to her favorite local taverna and made sure we knew how to get to our hotel after dinner. Our hotel was sweet and a lovely picturesque spot. We were comfortable and slept so well!

Delphi...my body still feels the energy there. The tour was an evening tour which was perfect! there weren't many people, it was cooler and we had time to really take it in. We started at the museum and Marillia walked us through giving us a history lesson and answering our many questions. She was mindful to move through the museum in a way where we weren't with multiple other tours. We appreciated this for multiple reasons (covid, over stimulation, and we could actually see the pieces we were talking about). As we walked to the oracle we were really able to feel and be with the energy of the space. Marillia was also interested in the ways that energy transmits and talked about her experience of Delphi as someone who doesn't live there but goes there to work 1-2x/week. It is a place where you feel shifts in you. I had a calm and curious energy and my partner has an active/excited energy. It was really unique. The temples/ruins are stunning and the views are breathtaking. The federales hotel was a sweet little spot. The room was small but perfect for one night. the view from the balcony was amazing!

Xania was a different world. We stayed in an Airbnb in the old town center and the streets were packed with people! It was an amazing experience to walk through the town and see ruins and new buildings intermixed. The botanical gardens were absolutely amazing! We had so much fun walking through and experiencing the many plants and then a truly delicious meal. The beaches of Crete are truly unique and beautiful.

The drive from Xania to Iraklio was beautiful. We made a stop in Rythemno and then decided to keep going and find a little taverna where we could swim and get fresh fish. We were not disappointed in our stop. In Iraklio we spent a day at the castle of Knossos. Lina was a delight. She knew the rhythm of the crowds at Knossos and she moved us around the ruins so that we could really see and enjoy it fully. It was one of the most spectacular of the many ruins. I only wish we had the time to go to the other castles on Crete.

Thera...you really don't get it until you get here. Constantinos was our driver from the boat to the hotel and into Oia. He was so lovely. He told us about the geography of the area and what he fell in love with and brought him to the island. He was sweet and worked with us as we got to the hotel and had a little timing conundrum. Oia was beautiful and interesting. We were admittedly done with tourist spots at this point so we took the time to focus on gifts we wanted to get for people and enjoyed a few hours of shopping and cafes/tavernas. We watched the sunset from our hotel, Kasimatis suites. Christos did us right on this one. We were in Imerovigli, highest point, and the view was absolutely breathtaking. The waterless farming tour with Ana was an absolute highlight of the trip. She was so sweet and dedicated to what she loves. Her family, her land, and her food. She taught us about the way they do anhydrous farming. How it changes the flavors and textures of the food. And the cooking/sharing a meal portion of the day really brought the group together. Ana was really good at asking the group questions that sparked deeper conversation and created a sense of family for a day. the wineries were really interesting and the tastings were enjoyable. What I took from this day is the absolute loveliness that was Ana's love and passion.

I initially thought I could plan our trip to Greece on my own. However upon delving into the planning phase, I immediately felt overwhelmed. I did not feel confident in booking the various ferries from island to island , and choosing a hotel was totally overwhelming, because of all the options.

I found Kim Kim travel service randomly on the Internet. I had never heard of them before. I decided to take the survey asking me questions about our travel preferences, priorities and some general personal information thinking “what could it hurt?” In a very short time I received a reply from Amalia. After a few conversations via Text, she put together an impressive preliminary itinerary.
Amalia was always very quick to answer my many questions.
We recently returned from our 10 day trip and everything Amalia planned for us was perfect!! The hotels, the activities, the transportation… we have zero complaints! I liked that everything was already paid for so we didn’t have to worry about that. She knew the best ferries to book, with the best seats ! Having drivers lined up was so helpful, especially on the picking up from the Athens airport upon our arrival, when we were so tired. The activities she arranged (after our chats via text) were perfect for us ( based on our age / abilities). We also had just the right of unscheduled time to do what we wished.
I can’t speak for any Kim Kim travel agents other than Amalia,. But we are so grateful to her. The amount of time and stress she saved me from trying to do it on my own is immeasurable!

The ride to the nearby beach was lovely. I recommend arriving early and have a bite to eat/ wine at the organic winery on the same premises. The one thing to be aware of , it’s location is quite remote, out in the country. It’s a bit difficult to find .It is an expensive cab ride… but worth it!!

WOW WOW WOW!!!!

We worked with Antonis to create the perfect honeymoon to Greece and let us tell you: IT WAS PERFECT. We spent 9 days there total: flying into Athens (2 nights), Mykonos (3 nights), and Santorini (3 nights). The amount of effort Antonis took to customize, prepare and execute our travel plans was truly astonishing. He left us nothing to worry about: all travel / to and from / check-ins / getting around, etc was completely taken care of. It's so clear Antonis is passionate about what he does, because there was so much care in the details. Below are some more details about our trip.

ATHENS:
We stayed at Villa Brown Ermou Hotel and loved it: it's new. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. It's located in Plaka which is "the spot" to visit - shopping, food, etc. Antonis was there to meet us in person the second we arrived to put a face to a name! He debriefed us on our itinerary and asked for any questions and made us feel so excited and safe. We did the Magnificent Athens tour of Athens with Zakia (our guide) and driver Marios. They were exceptional! Zakia is so passionate and knowledgeable. They even customized our tour of Athens to include the Grand Changing of the Guards (Sundays at 11am) which includes a parade of the Greek soldiers. (This is not normally on their schedule.) We visited the Acropolis Museum, The Panathenaic Stadium, and then the Acropolis itself. HIGHLY recommend this if you are staying even one day in Athens. 10/10

MYKONOS:
The pickup from the high-speed ferry can feel overwhelming with so many people, but we found our pickup very quickly and easily and was immediately brought to our hotel. We stayed at the Mykonos Imperial and cannot recommend a hotel more. It was the best hotel experience we've ever had. Two restaurants on property (Sushi and Mediterranean) which were incredible, and the kindest staff -- especially Giota and Victoria! The breakfast is unlike anything we've ever experienced -- endless options of every kind of breakfast option you could dream up. We also utilized the spa *couples massage* and really enjoyed relaxing at the gorgeous pool overlooking the Sea. *This hotel includes beach access* to Elia Beach, just outside the entrance to the hotel, which is huge. Most folks are traveling and paying 75-100 Euros for a daybed. You can use a daybed for free and charge everything to the room. *We also did the jetskis right there, and there are other water sports available. Amazing hotel. 10/10

The Sailing Yacht Cruise to Rhenia and Delos Islands was phenomenal. It's a large motorized sailboat with tons of space onboard and the shared experience with others was a great way to connect with people. At Rhenia jumped off of the boat, and snorkeled. We saw gorgeous fish. Delos is a historical uninhabited island where you'll get off the boat to do a one-hour walking guided tour (with Sia who is wonderful!) to explore the ruins from when the island was populated during the BC era. *Definitely bring a dry change of clothes and comfortable shoes for this! We also recommend towels / jacket / windbreaker on board because the waves produce lots of ocean spray and it can get chilly en route back. 10/10 experience for sure.

SANTORINI:
Our hotel, Secret Legend Suites, was heavenly. Right in the heart of Oia, which is a destination spot of Santorini for sure. There is a sister hotel, the Santorini Secret and with our stay, we have access to their infinity pool (excellent for your social media photos!) with a bar / restaurant and gym. Our room had a private hot tub which we used every day. The staff is wonderful, especially Elina. You are able to pre-select your handmade breakfast from never-ending options and it's delivered to your room at your preferred time. Between the service, the amenities, the views of the Caldera, and the location, this hotel worth every penny. 10/10

The Sunset Cruise is a must! You board in the afternoon, so there's great sun time to explore the different volcanic islands around Santorini (fascinating!) and jump off the boat / snorkel and then of course, you are set in the prime location to view the sunset. *Another picturesque experience* The food on board is magnificent, and the staff are amazing. 10/10

Overall, what set this trip apart from the rest was the incredible care and effort that Antonis put into both planning our trip, and making sure it was going smoothly along the way. We would work with him again in an instant!

Fantastic! Very private and small hotel with 8 rooms only. The view from the hotel is out of this world! We were in a bigger room and had a stair leading up to the pool area. Close by the street for restaurants, supermarket, and a small cafe for excellent gyros with a 2 min walk from hotel. Our terrace is quite big on the Caldera side and have our own entrance to our room. The owner Marco was very helpful, friendly and gave us history about the hotel - very fascinating story of the hotel.

Angela helped my wife and I plan the most amazing honeymoon. She was able to direct us to islands that fit exactly what we were looking for. From the very first time we stepped foot in Athens, everything was taken care of for us. Our driver was waiting there for us with our name on a sign. He was prompt for every pick up and very friendly. Our first hotel in Athens was in a great location, right near Plaka. She also booked us on a small group tour that took us around the main sites in Athens. From there, we went to our first island, Milos. Angela suggested this island from our little questionnaire that we filled out on Kim Kim. We were looking for something that was different from your typical islands. It had beautiful beaches, amazing people, and the hotel we stayed in, Eirianna, was delightful and charming. When I was planning this part of the trip, we went back-and-forth about different excursion options, and she was able to find exactly what we were looking. We did a very small group, boat tour and a private food tour of the island. Both of those tours were absolutely amazing and a must do in Milos.
Our last and final stop was in Santorini, again helping us find the perfect small little hotel, with stunning views of the caldera. She helped us not only book a local tour, but also helped us rent a car that was dropped off right outside of our hotel. She coordinated all of our transfers to the airports, ferries, hotels, restaurants, and tours. We literally did not have to think about one thing. That is exactly what we were looking for! She was responsive the entire trip and always checked in to make sure we were having the best time ever. If you were thinking about going to Greece, you must work with Angela. She is responsive, accommodating, easy to work with and prompt. Overall, this was one of the best vacations we have ever been on. I cannot recommend her and Kim Kim enough.

You could easily walk there at night for dinner and shopping. It had beautiful views on either side of the island. The breakfast was wonderful and brought to your little outdoor area every morning.

I’m writing this on my way home and I can safely say that the entire 10 day trip throughout multiple cities in Greece went off without a single snag or problem. We loved all the tours and excursions he booked. Complex transportation from hotel to port to ferry to hotel were done effortlessly, efficiently, and without delay thanks to Antonis’s expert planning. We were actually surprised to meet Antonis himself at our first hotel and he was just as lovely in person. He truly listened to the things we liked and didn’t like and the vacation perfectly reflected that. It was almost as if the trip was planned by our very close friend or relative. During our trip he checked in with us frequently and gave some FANTASTIC local food recommendations. I cannot recommend this travel service and this travel agent (Antonis) in particular enough. He is truly a star of the entity and I will continue to use this agency because of him.

Beautiful hotel. The view is almost hard to take in because of how beautiful it is. However, we found it difficult to find. After our driver dropped us off, the signs on how to get to the actual hotel we vague. We dragged our bags up and down the walk-way (which is on cobblestone path on the side of a hill/mountain) and could not find it. The Limestone is connected/surrounded by two or three other hotels that all look the same. Anyways, finally I found where we go to check in and the gentleman came and helped my wife with her bags. They were very friendly and apologetic, and our stay there was good after that (apart from the A/C breaking the first night; which they did fix the next day). I want to mention the breakfasts - unreal! I have a feeling I will be craving their omelets, fresh fruit and yogurt for many weeks to come. I would go back now knowing how to get to our room! But just beware it might be a frustrating challenge when you first arrive.

Greece is our first stop on a three week European trek. International flights and transfers were arranged for us.

Seriously seamless.

We highly recommend the Miland Suites on Milos. Rent a car and explore this amazing island. Naxos was wonderful too. The Cyano Suites were perfect.

We will use Kimkim again and again. And recommend it to anyone wanting to travel. Exceptional. 5 stars!

Cavos Hotel & Suites
Tinos

Super nice location and big rooms! Felt very luxurious. If you are big on cocktails however, the bar only makes a few of the common ones and they were not as good as we could find other places. However, the food and local drinks were very enjoyable! The pool is also very very nice. There is AC in the rooms, but it is only turned on when you are currently in the room. This is how it is all over Greece from our experiences.

I loved the staff, but I wasn’t sure were else to mention this: the reception opens at 9am, and this is a problem when your flight leaves at 8:30am and you need to check out and pay the taxes on your room. Who I think was the owner did come down and open up early for us, but we had to get one of the breakfast staff to call her and explain our situation.

Hiking and Cooking in a Traditional Naxian Village

SPECTACULAR! This was the coolest experience. The couple was so authentic and very hospitable and friendly. Our translator was super sweet and very knowledgeable. What was so cool with to me was that the translator (as the couple speaks no English) and the couple were actually good friends. It wasn’t just a job to either of them, they all would have been enjoying each other’s company without us being there, so it was like we were invited to a friends house for a casual but fun and delicious meal.

We are very happy with our experience with Kimkim. Nadia was very responsive to our requests and quickly gained a good understanding of our goals and intentions for the trip. She selected high-quality venues and experiences for us, and gave us all the resources we needed to feel confident that we could make the most of our time in Greece.

The trip went very smoothly from start to finish. The hotels were all of good quality in excellent locations. All of our drivers and guides were professional and welcoming. Particularly memorable tour guides were 1. Penny (Delphi) who went out of her way to engage the children and help us see and learn as much as possible of the ruins in a few hours, and 2. Celia (food tour), who was very fun for all of us including the children and also knowledgable and generous with her time and energy. Andreas (driver to Delphi) was also extremely kind and fun to get to know during our long car ride. Feedback for Anna (kids mythology tour) is that at times it was difficult to hear her above the traffic or other city noise (needs a louder voice or wait until we are in a quiet place to speak) - but she did teach us a lot when we could hear her. For Manos (Knossos) - we were a bit frustrated when twice he stopped to take an extended call on his cell phone during our tour; other than that he was knowledgable and made the tour very informative and engaging.

A shoutout also goes to the manager of the Hotel Ariadne in Naxos, who was extremely welcoming and kind to us throughout our stay. We would heartily recommend his hotel to others looking for a stay in Agios Prokopios.

On this trip we achieved exactly the balance we were looking for in visiting historical sites, experiencing Greek culture, eating the best local food, and enjoying the beauty of the Mediterranean while avoiding big tourist traps. Will definitely use kimkim for future trips and have already recommended it to others.

This was a really fun way to learn about Greek cuisine and culture and be able to try some of Athens' best products.

Very impressive tour - we left feeling VERY full and with our arms full of take-home goodies.

Restaurant Suggestions in Naxos
Naxos

Most of the suggested restaurants were not within walking distance of our hotel, and we did not have a car. Eventually we figured out how to use the public bus to get to the port where one of the restaurants was, but mostly we just ate at restaurants close to our hotel which were ok but nothing too memorable. Our dining experience in Naxos was definitely inferior to that in Heraklion and Athens -- not bad, but nothing memorable like the many highlights we had in the other places.

Alexis was a fabulous guide, allowing us to change our plans and then showed us a number of sights that fed our archaeological hunger that were off the beaten path.

Janne was a great driver and turned out to be a wonderful guide on his own as he got us from our hotel in Athens to Delphi and Meteora and back to Athens. He gave us a nice bit of color along the way.

Nicole gave us a tour of Therassia with lots of local information and history. The tour was a bit of death march up hills and stairs, but we saw wonderful caves, a beautiful church, and tasted local figs and plants along the way and got the triumphal sprig of rosemary when we reached the pinnacle!

The one thing I would recommend is doing the tour of Athens and the Acropolis+museum in two four hour days. Or waiting until you have fully recovered from the jet lag. It was more than a bit of a death march and, by the afternoon at the museum, we all felt it was interesting, but just wanted to lie down.

I highly recommend this kind of tour. It was private, just the three of us, and even though the tour guides have an agenda, which gets in the way of in depth exploration, every moment was orchestrated to give us the highest and most comfortable experience possible (except when marching, but that is easily adjusted for in the future).

I will never go on a tour with a large group after this experience and I will definitely use KimKim again for my next trip.

Sweet Home Boutique Hotel
Athens

This was a great hotel, tucked into a narrow street. It is family-owned and the rooms are comfortable. The breakfasts are a wonderful display of local foods (who knew Nescafe was so good?) and the staff gracious and helpful. The view from the room was surprising. We were on the top floor and when I first looked out, I just saw another building, but a closer look revealed the backside of the Acropolis, just across the way! Wonderful. Plus, there is a gramophone museum in the basement.

This is a lovely retreat with a view of the ocean from the top of a hill. The rooms are generous with a little sink and some dishes as well. Breakfast is served individually and we ended up eating on the courtyard every morning to enjoy the view before the sun got too hot. The foods were amazing and tasty. The coffee press was excellent and the selections were wide and tasty. The pool was nice and we enjoyed it immensely after slogging over the sights. It was a quick walk down the hill to any number of tasty restaurants. The food in Greece was very good. I never had a bad meal there.
