Sofia's Place was disappointing. It is not actually a home where she lives but 4 apartments on the ground floor available for rent. Ours was clean and functional but very dated and extremely minimal - 2 of everything except a few more plates. Wooden chairs and table in the kitchen area which was pretty gloomy. However, the fridge and freezer worked well and the cooker for boiling water for a cuppa (once we found the fuse in the fuse box to turn it on). Good location as only 10 mins walk to the nearest beach and 20 mins walk to the town.
The problem was there was absolutely no information in the room at all - no house manual so we didn't know what room service to expect. When we asked the caretakers upstairs if we were to empty the bathroom bin each day he told us to contact Sofia. We couldn't access the internet in the room therefore could only contact her when in the town where wifi was available.
We suggest there is information on the local area and amenities for those who haven't visited Sami previously. Luckily we have been before so knew how to get to the beach, town, etc.
There was a washing line but no pegs (luckily we took some). The other 3 apartments appeared to have pegs on the line but weren't occupied.
The shower / bathroom was very very basic but hot water available constantly.
The room was cleaned once during our stay and sheets and towels changed.
When we did contact Sofia she responded quickly and on one occasion we asked that the outside light be fixed as we couldn't sit outside in the evening. When we returned that day it had been fixed. She also insisted there was internet but we certainly couldn't find a network.
It would have been nice if Sofia had introduced herself to us but she didn't and we never met her. The only time she contacted us freely was 9 am on the day before our departure asking us when we were leaving the next day.
We will not be returning to this accommodation - it was far too expensive for what it was and there are many other properties in the area of much higher standards for similar price.
