Facilities & Amenities
Rooms & Suites
Ocean Restaurant: This is where villa guests can enjoy their breakfast. By night this sophisticated Italian restaurant offers an extensive la carte menu with a fine dining “twist”. Pre-booking at the Ocean is typically a must. The Ocean Restaurant overlooks the cove and the infinity pool.
The Taverna: Is everything (and more) that you would expect to find at a traditional Greek Taverna with the added benefit that it enjoys an amazing view of the cove. Given the restaurants sea side setting it probably isn’t that surprising that the Taverna offers a wide selection of Greek dishes with a focus on fresh, locally caught fish. This is a perfect spot for a romantic dinner.
Pangea: Offers an international buffet menu. Pangea literally translates in Greek to “all of the earth”, this gives you an idea of the range of the buffet, all enjoyed in a lovely setting. The great thing about a buffet offering is the special theme nights which ensures you palate will always have something to look forward to.
