눉Despite paying £385 for one week, we were horrified to discover that there virtually no self catering facilities. An electric kettle and a sandwich toaster, that was it. No cooker, no microwave, not even the basic portable hotplate which used to be the "norm" in even the most basic of accommodation in the "old days" in Greece. We would have been grateful for even one of those - we couldn't even boil an egg which is what we always have when on holiday together with orange juice, cold meats and cheeses, tomatoes and fresh bread and butter. There was a weird assortment of dinner plates and various little dishes in the kitchen cupboard (!) plus just 3 desertspoons, one small wooden spoon (?) and a salt spoon - a fraction of the size of a teaspoon,oh, and a curved blade grapefruit knife. That was it - no forks, no knives. For what we had paid for this accommodation we expected a far better standard than this and it took the edge off our holiday. I strongly suspect that this may have had something to do with the fact that for an additional 5 euros each per day the owner served yoghurt and eggs for breakfast. Neither of us likes yoghurt and we always choose to make our own breakfast as described above. This lack of provision of even basic catering facilities is so unusual for Greek hosts who are normally so hospitable and bend over backwards to see that all is well. It really inconvenienced us especially as my husband, who is disabled, had a fall on our first day and broke a bone in his foot - I really could have done with the facilities to prepare a few modest meals instead of going out all the time, but there wasn't even a knife and fork to eat with. The washing-up sponge looked like it had been in use for the entire season and sat on a really grubby white dish. The "cutlery" drainer containing the meagre provision described was also dirty.
눇Initial impression was very good as the entire grounds have been designed in a typical Santorinian "volcanic" garden and are very attractive. The pool area was excellent but unfortunately the weather didn't allow us to use these facilities as it was not very warm whilst we were there. We had a reasonably private little terrace area outside the apartment but it was in a very shaded corner with no view. Inside the apartment, the main living area/first bedroom was attractive enough as was the second bedroom. The bathroom was lovely and had recently been refurbished. We always had plenty of towels.
