Quelles sont les possibilités de restauration pour un séjour éventuel en Mai ?
Chere Catherine, Merci de votre interet sur Koutsounari Traditional Cottages. Apartir du mois d'avril, tout les restaurants de la region sont ouverts. Je suis certaine que la liste de restaurants/tavernes proposes a nos clients par notre etablissement sera tres satisfaisante. En ce qui concerne le petit dejeuner, les kitchennettes sont equipes pour que vous puissiez en preparer. Si vous preferez Nespresso pour le petit dejeuner, nous pouvons vous fournir d'une machine afin de preparer votre Nespresso prefere. Le mois de Mai, est un tres bon choix, car le pays est en beaute. Bien amicalement Ioanna
