If you have done your research then you will know that you have to climb a few stairs here and there on the island to get to quite a few places. The apartments are down some stairs and so might not be approapriate for everyone. My mum is a very fit mid fifties so we walked alot with no problem.
Now, my mum and I totally loved this but you may not. The apartments are on the main donkey trail. There are donkeys that give rides from the bottom of the Caldera side to the top, all you hear generally are a few hooves and bells. My mum and I like a lie in (we are night owls!) and this didn't really bother us, plus we liked the novelty. You have probably gathered by now we are super laid back people, but, we only have one holiday a year so if this had been in any way dissapointing we would have said so, but these apartments aren't to be missed. I am well travelled and like to stay in places that have a luxury feel to them. and this definately ticked my boxes all the way.
I am 34 and took my 55 year old mum away for a well deserved holiday. I came across the apartments on the internet after an extensive search. If you are like me and prefer to stay out of the hotel environment (ie lots of people and commercialism) but love boutique surroundings then this is the place for you. The apartments are beautifully done and very sympathetic to the traditions of Greek style and the island itself. It is in gorgeous surroundings with a view to die for. If you want romance this is definately the place (the couple next door were actually on their honeymoon). The owners are wonderful people (I can't thank them enough for a lovely stay). They are so friendly and helpful. I saw one grouches review on Trip Advisor calling them "the most crazy and anal people I have ever encountered". Now, I'm not one to bad mouth anyone elses review, each to their own in my eyes, but these people are the sweetest genuine people you will ever meet. Apparently this dispute stemmed from some towel stealing debate. Well, I had bought a humungous beach towel with me but my mum forgot hers. We said this to the owners and they provided my mum with fresh beach towels every day on top of those for the bathroom. They were in fact such good kind people we bought them both small gifts when we left as they had given us a bottle of local wine halfway through our stay (6 nights). Please stay here you will not regret one second of it.
