To be Found within Walking Distance

Holidays also mean freedom from having to use the car for every little errand one needs to run. These two maisonettes are in a village community, yet they are away from the buzz of it all, as their front border is the sea, the sky, and the mountains at the gulf’s opposite side. Therefore, within less than ten minutes’ walking distance, one can find mini–markets, bakeries, kiosks, a bar with free internet, restaurants, and even a basketball and a tennis court. For a party, or a lazy evening in, one can opt for a free delivery of pizza or souvlaki, the “Greek fast food”. As for walks, one can choose between a stroll along the pier next to the local road, or a walk in the lemon grove. Bicycles are also widely used here, and one can join the locals in cycling to go shopping, or to do some fun exercise.
