A village-like complex of attractive buildings sloping grounds that have spacious on site facilities to compensate for the distance from the beach and resort centre.

There is a well-stocked supermarket on site and plenty of space for parking a hire car.
An attractive village like display of white painted buildings with red tiled roofs and large airy recessed balconies and terraces, many of which overlook the pool area. There is a large car park near the main entrance which is found at a corner of the central buildings.
Property type: Apartments
Built Year: 1990s
Exterior: Holiday Village
A vast lobby appears rather empty and sterile with its reception along one side of the main entrance. There is a good supply of comfortable seating in the bar with its amenable atmosphere and entertainment area. The restaurant appears somewhat functional but serves its purpose as an alternative to self-catering.
The sloping grounds with their mature olive trees feature many colourful shrubs and plants. The pool and its surround is somewhat larger than would anticipated for the number of apartments on site.
There is a good supply of sun-loungers and parasols on the wide sunbathing area and the children’s pool is also of a generous size.
Area Type: In a rather remote off centre location, in the tiny suburb of Pateo, in a narrow cul de sac off a sloping road that leads down towards the dual carriageway, running from E to W through the full length of the resort. There are a few local shops and bars in the main street, 150m from the property’s entrance, otherwise the main supply is in the resort centre 2 km away. A courtesy bus operates to the central area and beaches.
Nearest beach: 2.5km (Pescadores)
