Lovely Cretan Cottage as described with fantastic views
We arrived late about 10pm in the dark to be greeted by the owner who was waiting for us. This warm welcome set the tone for the rest of our stay, we were shown round the property and introduced to it's little quirks (typical greek). Everything we needed was taken care of. The property is set up with a very homely feel and as it was where the owners grand parents had lived you felt connected to the greek way of life. Eggs and fresh produce from the owners small holding were and extra bonus.
We woke in the morning to see the views for the first time, we chose this property for location and the views. We were not disappointed! It was fabulous.
We had a fantastic 2 week stay where the owner was extremely attentive and helpful. The local tavern was a great place for an evening meal where you felt part of the community, with the typical greek welcome.
I would happily go back and book this cottage again.
I think it is worthwhile saying that you park your car on the road and then walk up a steep hill to the cottage, this might be a problem to people with a heart condition or disabilities. Also the upstairs bedroom is only about 4/5 foot high so you are bent over moving around, the lower bedroom is only about 6 foot high. If you are very tall that might be a problem to you.
This property is a hidden gem and I would love to go back in the spring sometime to enjoy Crete in full bloom.
Parfait pour un séjour au calme près de la mer
Un très bon séjour de 5 jours pour apprécier les coins reculés de l’est de la Crète.

Michalis, le propriétaire des lieux, est très accueillant et à l'écoute. Il saura vous renseigner sur les endroits à visiter. Nous avons pu apprécier son extrême gentillesse et son hospitalité.
