What a wonderful place to stay! Fiona's parents Arghyris and Mimi were wonderfully kind and welcoming - met us from the boat, helped with car hire, live in a house nearby and were always ready to help with any problem or advice. One of our party stepped on a sea urchin on the first day, which could have been a bit of a blight but Mimi proved to be an expert operator with needle and tweezer - They really couldn't have been more fun or delightful people. Seven of us fitted in the house without feeling crowded. The house is comfortable, light, airy, simple and charming, with mosquito nets fitted everywhere, not that I saw much in the way of buzzy biting insects. The sea is lovely, the beach a delightful family beach, the families all being Greek, and even in the busiest week of August it never seemed unpleasantly crowded. There was a volley ball net, two nice tavernas and a magnificent sunset which of course you wouldn't get on the other side of the island. Kythnos is altogether a wonderful island with some beautiful towns, beautiful beaches and a very romantic ruined castro which you reach by climbing crumbly mule tracks up a deserted mountainside with only goats for company. Remarkably few foreigners seem to come for their holidays here, but many discerning Greeks. I couldn't recommend this more highly.
