Greek Easter celebrations

On Easter Monday the locals get together for food, music and dance only a mile away from our villa. Remember that's Greek Easter.

Seven Springs

This is a tiny microclimate where seven springs emerge from the rocks and the sun never penetrates and it is full of moss. You think you're in England. There's a nice taverna there to refresh yourself.
