... Nice guy, who in 2010 left the big city life of Athens, bought the hotel and runs it as a small private business. I wish him success as his operation is very charming although it would be good if they could improve a few things like the hot water and wifi to all rooms.

THe same lady who convinced me about he place, told us that we can return on the next day and pay. We didn't have to leave names, IDs, hotel names, anything! She said that she trust us and there was no need to worry about anything. Awesome! Love this ...
... Our winery guide, made it really fun. She is a Brit, who came to Greece, married a Greek man and never left. Our last stop before reboarding was a small museum of Greek inventions. A very good English speaking docent explained each invention and demonstrated a few of them. She also informed us that the Greeks have made virtually every mechanical and scientific discovery. We were thinking she might be one of the relatives from ...
