You can relax by the pool under the palm trees or visit the nearest beach which is less than 10 min walk away. Franziska and Corinna, the owners,  will look after you during your stay. Added bonus, they grow their own products such as olives and nectarines and use them in their menu. Get ready to enjoy those sunrises and sunsets from the balcony and fill your chest with joy breathing in the fresh air.

Food

You can expect fresh, home-cooked food using mostly organic and local produce, more often than not coming from a local vegetable garden. Dishes lean towards Greek and Mediterranean style, however the chefs will incorporate modern twists on traditional recipes to create fresh and exciting flavours. All dietary restrictions can be accommodated; such as gluten-free, vegan etc.

You can find more about Pardalakis studios here.
