- We had a great stay at Sunrise Villas, with everything we needed (TV sat impressed us, as it’s not quite common for usual Greek holiday rentals...strong wi-fi signal, kitchen fully supplied). The apartment we stayed in was large and beautifully decorated, with nice verandas and individual access to the well-maintained gardens, full of trees and flowers). Very friendly and helpful owners, they personally took care of us. A quiet environment and yet in a very convenient location for Gaios and the beaches. Thank you, we won’t hesitate to come back! 01-07-2013 15:42:06
