  Nikos and Olgas guesthouse
by call_me_rhia

A wonderful place run by two wonderful persons: Olga and Nikos. In this lovely house they have 4 bright cosy rooms with kitchenette - the only problem is to find it, since they don't advertise it. The story goes that they mainly rent rooms to friends and friends of friends from Germany, where they spent 35 years - we found it by asking around for rooms. If you decide to contact them be aware that they only speak Greek or German - and English will take you nowhere.

Unique Qualities: Olga and Nikos - who took well care of us: beer, raki and ouzo flowed freely - and they even cooked pastitio for us one evening. And every morning we had a wonderful glass of freshly squeezed orange juice waiting for us. We paid 25 euros for a double room - and the dinner and drinks were kindly offered to us.
