We were welcomed like long-lost relatives by our host. The apartment was easy to find (specific address), the key was in the lock and our host was there to greet us and help us park within his lovely property full of flowers. We walked upstairs to our beautiful big apartment (the host/owner lives on the first floor) that was not only fully and luxuriously furnished. The beautiful bedrooms and baths had everything one could ask for - down to American outlets as well as European ones as our host had lived many years in Canada. Lovely dining area that had the same spectacular view of the Gulf of Corinth as the other rooms and the wonderful terrace. The beach was stony, as they usually are in Greece, the water a lovely temperature. It was windy so there were a lot of waves. The kitchen not only had tea and coffee for us to use, but cases of water (one doesn't drink the tap water here) but had been also been stocked with cherries, melon and oranges in addition to little sweet cakes his wife made. This was our last night in Greece, so we asked him to make a special greek dinner with roast lamb for us. It was truly amazing! The lamb was superb, the pork dish (for my non-lamb-eating daughter) was enough for all 6 of us and delicious, the appetizers were wonderful - zucchini fritters, the best tzatziki ever, and much more! Dessert was a homemade traditional Greek cake. Beer and wine (light, delicious Greek white) flowed till we could not possibly eat or drink anything more. The next morning when we and to drive to the Athens airport, our host brought us fresh eggs from his hens and a loaf of fresh bread. It was a perfect last day for our trip -- I just regret not having stayed here for more than one night. Corinth and AcroCorinth and the canal are less than an hour away and well worth the visit. Athens international airport is 1 1/2 hours away.
Best stay of our trip!
We had a terrific stay here. The house was clean and comfortable, in an incredible spot right on the Gulf of Corinth. We went during the shoulder season, so the local activity was pretty low, but that was fine by us. We rented a car and went exploring in the Peloponnese, which was lots of fun. We thought our hosts were wonderful and helpful with renting the car and getting settled in. We'd come back!
