On the Rocks, Imerovigli greece

★   ★   ★    ★

 

A stylish property with cosy areas, tight in terms of space, offering splendid sea views and dramatic cliff side scenery. All areas are bright white, creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity, with soft music playing throughout and a small spa to aid relaxation.

Suited to adults looking for a more intimate cliff side property, with resort amenities close by. Not suited to those with mobility problems or a fear of heights.
