June 2004. On this island you usually had the beach for yourself. The only traffic you saw on the roads were some donkeys and some rental cars. We stayed at the top floor of a renovated mill at villa Mantalena, furnished like a mini museum, with a lovely view on the sea and the mountains. In the evening the owner Antonis and the local shepherd popped in to drink some ouzo or metaxa with us. A vacation between and with the Greeks. Suitable for the Greece-lovers who want some rest, and want to experience the Greece of 25 years ago!
