The hotel wasn't within walking distance of a swimming beach.
However, having said that, the buses run on a very regular basis all the
way to Koukounaries (popular beach) at only 2 euros.
The quality of accommodation was excellent. Very clean. The quality and
varied offerings for breakfast. Most of all, the owners of the property
were very friendly and helped us when we asked for advice on different
aspects of the island. The swimming pool, although not big, was lovely.
Although the hotel is in the middle of the town centre, it is
surprisingly quiet, with the only sound heard being the slight splash of
the swimming pool. This sort of quality accommodation is very rarely
seen anywhere in Greece. This has been my second stay at this hotel and
will definitely be back again. As a final note on the beaches - all
beaches we visited (Koukounaries, Vromolimnos, Lalaria, Tsougries and
Kastro) were with crystal clear waters.
