We had a great time enjoying the peacefulness and quietness in this little village far from noise and stress. The host is extremely nice, helpful and open. One should probably habe a look at the street to and from the house to be prepared but...More

About the neighbourhood
You will come across Kapetaniana village right on top of the mountain. That is where the dirt road starts. The next 3 km are fairly demanding. You will be driving on the top of the sierra.

The last 4 km are on a quite bumpy and curvy dirty road. You are going to drive down from the top of a mountain to the beach (you will have to move carefully with an average speed of 20-30km/hour). That's actually the most difficult part of the route.

I would strongly recommend on renting an 4X4 or an SUV but you can also access the property with a smaller vehicle (as long as you drive carefully the last 4 km of the route.
