First of all we want to thank the whole family for their warm welcome and hospitality! Lemonia,Stellios and Ms Nita are the most genuine, warm people ever! Our room had a lovely sea view(top floor) and everything that we requested was provided. The room was cleaned every day and we had a small kitchenette where we could make coffee and toast. The food is so lovely in Kriopigi and well priced that you don't need to actually cook. For people missing their bacon and eggs please stay home! The beach is 15 minutes down the road from the hotel and we recommend taking either the train or little bus shuttle on your way back if your out of shape(some very steep hills) The hotel has a lovely pool which is well maintained and you have sun loungers around it to make the most. Breakfast was lovely, continental, ham, cheese, toast, jam, coffee and fresh orange juice. From here you are close to all the bars and restaurants in the village. There is a moped shop down the road whose owner, Kostas was very friendly and recommended us places to visit around the peninsula. We also booked most of our trips and activities (Mount Athos and scuba diving) through SIM travel agents which have been fantastic and really well organised.
Out of the restaurants and bars in Kriopigi we recommend Cassablanca, Nikos, Bistrot, Galanos, Ostria and the best one was the one in the village close to the church (that is where all the locals go!).
Thank you once again to our amazing hosts which bent over backwards to make our stay fantastic! We already miss you and promise to return and visit! And also I can't praise enough the hospitality and warm welcome of the Greek people! What a fantastic country! Please go and visit!
All our love,
Ramona and James
