I love Nymphes. It was like visiting family who didn't mind you were there longer than three days. The rooms were comfortable and the view fantastic. If we were out on the balcony in the afternoon, we would leave our door open and the kittens would come in and take a siesta on the bed. Pepy even made tea made from herbs located around the apts. for my mom. She also gave her a tour of the plants and loaned her a book on herbs. Pepy and her staff are just really fabulous.
This hotel is secluded, though, and you really need to have a car. We were going to rent one before our visit but were finding prices exceeding $500 for a small car with insurance. Pepy arranged for a car rental, with insurance, for four days at a cost of 204 euros *and* they delivered it to the hotel. We simply dropped it off in the airport parking lot when we left. She can also make arrangements for ferries to the other islands.
We were going to stay someplace recommended by the guide books but I read all of the reviews for Nymphes and decided to stay here instead; I am so glad we did. I've done a lot of traveling and Nymphes is unlike anyplace I have ever stayed and is all the better for it.
