The villa had everything we needed and more. It was great to come back to the villa and cool down in the pool after a day at the beach. Having all the beach towels at our disposal was fantastic. The villa is only a couple of minutes from the beach and the tavernas - perfect! The food in the tavernas is superb as well as the complimentary ice-cold raki served after your meal. This is the fourth time we have been to Almyrida and we are sure it will not be our last.
