Any questions you may have or help you may need, I am only a message or call away and always try to respond promptly!
It will be my pleasure to provide you with information concerning the sights, monuments, churches and my own back-road routes (I can send you the info per email). There are some excellent short routes (15-30 min. by car) such as the ancient town of Lato and Archeotites, a variety of historical monasteries and churches, mountain and sea sites, all of which are of unique natural beauty.
When you arrive, I will guide you in a small circle (15 min around the village (Voulismeni) and the nearby larger Neapoli, to show you the supermarket, bank, bakery, gas station, roads for routes, etc.
Call me ca 1 hour prior to arriving in Neapoli, and I will give you directions to find the house, or I will guide you personally depending on what we have agreed).
Please turn off the water heating after 20'.
Parking is 50 m away.
The bus stop (to Agios Nikolaos) 2 min from the house. It leaves at least once an hour.
