You will find a warm welcome in Amaliapolis where the Greek concept of 'filoxenia' (hospitality towards strangers) is still adhered to. Amaliapolis is popular with holidaying Greek families but has very few foreign tourists.
The beach is within walking distance of the villa and is sandy and gently sloping - making it very suitable for young children.
There is a choice of cafes and tavernas, with excellent fish, three of which stay open all year. The main square is a wonderful place to sit and watch the world go by and the fishing boats as they come and go.
The village also has two bakeries and two general stores, one of which also doubles as a butcher's. It
also has a children's playground, 5-a-side football pitch and
basketball court near the beach, with a beach volleyball court in
summer. In the next village there is a larger supermarket, post office and pharmacy (15 minutes drive).
You can experience the 'real' Greece here, largely untouched by mass market tourism.
