our holiday in Ialyssos this summer was excellent, food, beaches, and of course the friendly locals gave us a holiday to remember. Please try our favourite eating place, Colibri, run by Nikos and his lovely family, wonderful hosts. It is opposite the Electra Hotel. Hire a car and visit all the beautiful villages.
