I and my assistant Kostis welcome our guests with local fruits and products, we meet them every day and advice/help them 24h/day (if they need it) in order to have unforgettable holidays in ALOE villa.
Don't miss the extra healthy microclimate of the area in all seasons. Here, the hospitality is tradition and the life is so easy and pleasant that you will fall in love with this place. Just like me. Just like the mythological lotus-eaters in Homer.
