  • Very good 3
    Family Sweden
    A beautiful but inaccessible village with almost no maintenance, perfect for peace and quiet
    The beaches - you could find your own spot (alone on the beach). The water: clear and perfect for snorkeling. The view - The village is situated facing south on a hillside and all the houses have spectacular views.
    The distance- both to the village of Jelsa and from house to the beach, to the restaurant and to the bakery. Car indispensable Only one restaurant in the village - a pizzeria. To bars at the beach - only drinks, no food. Only one small market with limited range. Road to Zavala wound up the mountain and then through a narrow 1.5 km long tunnel - no light, almost like a mine-and after the tunnel a winding road down.
