Vasilis, Great Host
Posted Apr 29, 2015
To find Saxonis Houses, one must phone. Everyone knows everybody there. As we did not have a cell phone, a gentleman gladly helped. Vasilis dashed to the open area where we parked, cheerily introduced himself and hauled our baggage to Saxonis. He is a wealth of knowledge about this national park and happily told us much of it. His little hotel, more a B 'n B, looks like the rest of the village--all stone houses, some older while others are very new. Our room, rustic in decor, was very clean with a comfortable bed. Unlike other small Greek hotels, there was an electric pot for hot water with tea bags and instant coffee with China cups. In addition, we found a box of tissue and a small carafe of a local grape distilled liquor! The bathroom had a small bathtub with mobile shower and the usual amenities. For breakfast, he'd made whole grain bread and a local recipe feta cheese pie. In addition, he offered eggs cooked the way we liked, fresh squeezed orange plus coffee and a variety of teas. This is the best small hotel that we have stayed in to date in two weeks of non-stop Greek travel, largely because of the owner, VasilIs.
