What They Say...

"It takes a lifetime to discover Greece, but it only takes an instant to fall in love with her"

Little Travel Society

We want to offer you the best prices, without using the usual booking platforms. Why? Because in our experience, they usually cost you -and us- a lot of money, and no one ever picks up the phone! Which is why the only booking platform you will find us on is the German platform: Little Travel Society. We have worked with Little Travel Society for many years with the other villas. It's a very cool company, that focuses on personal storytelling about the houses they advertise, plus, they are completely run by women! You, as guests, don't pay them any fees or commissions but for a house to receive their "loved-by-seal" is not that easy, so you can be sure that any house on their website is legitimate. Feel free to visit their website and see what they write about the little house under the sun!
