It has been 4 years since the Family Gusto have had a summer holiday. Work, studying and exams have all meant that although we have been fortunate enough to take little trips here and there (Lapland at Christmas being a true highlight) we have not had a holiday in the sun for some time.
The English weather has been hot for some weeks, and it has been wonderful to enjoy. But it was with no small amount of enthusiasm that we jetted off to Greece for a week of quiet sunbathing, swimming and eating.
Breakfast at Gatwick before we went we tried a restaurant Wondertree. This was a hearty and delicious meal of tortillas, beans, salsa, topped with eggs avocado and chilli. Absolutely gorgeous.
A 4 hour flight and we arrived to this perfect vista
This was taken from our terrace balcony and was the view we had every morning at breakfast.
Dinner the first night we went to a taverna and gorged on dips and bread.
This platter had tzatziki, a red peper and feta dip, taramasalata and a wonderful aubergine dish that despite being a confirmed aubergine-hater I simply could not get enough of.
We usually had lunch at the apartment and it also would feature fresh bread, vegetables, cheese or fish
