“On the night of our “one week anniversary” Terry and i just wanted to express our huge thanks for the wonderful wedding/holiday we had in Megala Chorafia! It was totally memorable and magical: an idyllic setting (even surpassed expectations); delicious food; dancing in the village streets into the night- fabulous. All the various parts of our family had nothing but praise too"
