I stayed in the pirate cove for two weeks, and I could not rate it more highly! Outstanding location, great facilities, beautiful garden, and – not least important – wonderful hosts!

The house is a stand-alone small house about 50 meters from the sea. My favorite features of the house are the giant windows that open onto the front porch and let in a beautiful breeze. I liked to sleep with the windows open so that I could wake up to the birds chirping and the sun rising, a beautiful feeling. Epicureans might like the big bathtub (… though I generally used the outside shower since I went swimming in the sea every day).

Cooking enthusiasts will appreciate the great kitchen (with a full stove, oven, frig, freezer, and all the necessities), and there is a really great farmer’s market (agora laiki) every Friday in the nearby town, Xylokastro. There are also producers who come around Stomio in their vans to sell whatever is growing ‘right now’ (I can’t choose a ‘favorite’ because all of the local fruit and veg is really superbly delicious) … and also a ‘bread man’ (my favorite kind, highly recommended: the Greek wholemeal sourdough-like bread, psomi olikis met prosimi)…. and a ‘meat man’ … and a ‘fish man’ (my two favorites: you just can’t beat fresh sardeles – sardines – and fresh gavros – anchovies). I always cooked the fish under the grill in the oven, but if you’d like to, you could even make a barbecue in the grill outside.

Then there is another ‘favorite’: the sea. A few steps out the front door, and you can jump right in the water. I really loved the sea and went for a swim a few times every day!

Ah! I can’t leave this out. Another ‘favorite’ of sorts, too: the hosts. Wonderful, kind people who will welcome you warmly and happy to give you local tips and help with anything you might need. Just good people, that’s the way to say it.

In summary: It’s a great place, and I give it my highest recommendation!
