Hotel Review

The perfect antidote to 21st-century stress, this tiny collection of 18th-century stone cottages nestles in a rocky canyon a short walk from the lively beach. This really is back to basics: your bed is a firm mattress on a stone platform; lighting is by paraffin lantern; and the only major concessions to modern living are solar-powered hot water, bathroom lighting and a fridge. If it gets too quiet, lively Makriyialos with its bars and tavernas is within walking distance. There are ten cottages, two of which sleep five.
