Stands out from the crowd

" A friendly family run concern where the family clearly do everything from a lovely welcome at reception, with a local wine, waiting on, in the adjacent restaurant and then providing a chauffeur /guide around the illuminated Greek ruins at night. They obviously take a lot of pride in their local history and even offer food with ancient connections. I tried the prawns cooked in sesame and a sweet wine which was amazing. A very different hotel experience "
