Fantastic! I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Diaz. The Beautiful rolling countryside and coastline reminicent of North Yorkshire on a rare hot day! I made new friends! :)
However, the village is somewhat isolated unless you have access to a car. The slow pace may well suit some.
Unfortunately, the local railway servicing the smaller villages was abandoned some 15 years ago, in favour of the high-speed intercity railway, which is limited to servicing major towns and cites only. The bus service cannot replace the value of rail travel. With parallel to the disasterous mistake the British government made in the 1960's. (See: " The Dr. Beeching Report".)
This lack of funding for local transport can only cripple the economy.
The now defunct village station of Mykrygialos stands proudly as a recent relic of a bygone age.
Though once you find transport, you will unlock a tremendous trip from the coast to Mount Olympus and beyond.
This was our second visit. Very friendly and pleasant management and the hotel is very clean and pleasant with great sea views and in a relaxed seaside town. The great thing about it is the food in the restaurant. Try the mussels -they are not to be missed.
