Guestbook comments from the manager

In June 2008 my finance Zeljka and I, with 6 of our friends (3 couples) stayed in Anagnaotis house for one week. Two weeks would have been better, as there are many things to see in western Crete. As only great, old houses can be, ot seems as part of surroundings nature. From the road it can hardly be seen, giving the great sense of privacy and tranquility. Sents of nature are beautiful, so far me one of the most memorable things was me driving alone to the bakery in a near village while everybody were sleeping. That few minutes on a curvy road trough olive tree's fields with open window and radio playing mellow greek morning tues I still reminisce. The car is essential not for the village but for the other site'sin Western Crete worth visiting. The village is nice, but the greatest thing in it is George's taverna in the center. It's a place to have a drink, chill out in the shade and of course to eat. The food is great, excellent and cheap - usual meal with local wine costs around 10.- euros per person and even you pay morefor a few dishes, it's great value for money. The owners of the house, Esther and Dimitrios are warm, nice people, always on hand. As we come from touristic country we can say that they are not usual renters. For us they did fantastic things - arrange our wedding in a local orthodox church in a few days time. It was something special. Trying not to be patetic, we did "holiday of our life".

Tittle Treasure. Private Pool. Away from Usual
average rating of 4.0 based on 2 reviews

Lovely house in a beautiful location slightly off the beaten track. The swimming pool is amazing.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in Deliana. The property is very comfortable and spacious. We spent several days around the pool and had a few day trips out to Chania, Elafonissi and Fallasarna. Aside from the main road which goes along the north coast other roads are very mountainous and narrow. So it does often take over an hour to get to these places. The village of Deliana is very picturesque with very good food at To Faragi. The only downside about the house is the location of the kitchen which is away from the rest of the house and only accessable only by an outside staircase. The kitchen is also very dark and had a slightly depressing feel about it. All the other rooms in the house were were very light and spacious. The swimming pool is very big and cleaned every day. A lovely week in western Crete.
