    We are situated about in a rural setting 5/6 km from nearest town and there is no shop in our small village. No night life to speak of, but plenty of olive groves, Greek dogs barking, the Ionian sea is about 6 km away (60 km of unspoiled beach to explore and enjoy) and there is a mountain behind us, so plenty of walking areas to explore. We love to hear about travelers experiences and both have a good sense of humour. Life is about getting the most out of any situation and having some fun too.
    We look forward to hearing from you.
