Have to look at this place on Google Earth to really appreciate where it is. It is built right into the cliffs above a small rocky inlet a couple of km south of Plakias.

Experienced problems with drainage all the time which meant the bathroom floor was always wet with water from somewhere. This was reported and partly fixed. Ten mites drive from centre of...
