About 20 years ago before we had children, we rented a villa in Porto Raphael. We wish to revisit with our 2 teenage sons who snorkel and fish and we enjoy sightseeing by car.
We are not keen on busy towns but prefer to stay in quiet villages close enough to drive to a marina ~ we like boats
That’s great! Perhaps San Pantaleo then. But it’s not right on the sea.
