Nice and secure with bedrooms downstairs and living room and kitchen upstairs. Very homely and the air conditioning is very efficient. The pool is hardly used by residents of the other apartments. The village of Analipsi is only 20 mins from Heraklion airport and has a good selection of bars and restaurants although i feel that their trade has been ruined by the increase of all-inclusive resorts in the area. We only had good food from the local eateries and they were all very inexpensive. This holiday was more relaxed, luxurious and cheaper than anything that an all-inclusive resort could provide us. The local beaches are ok, but you do not have to travel far to reach some amazing beaches. If you want more excitement then Hersonissos is only 5 minutes away by car, with nightclubs etc. If you do want to cater for yourself then this apartment has the best kitchen of any that we have stayed in. A full sized, modern, oven. A dishwasher. And a full sized fridge freezer. And with Lidl on a 3 minute drive away and 3 well stocked local supermarkets within walking distance it is perfectly feasible to prepare all you own meals for the duration of your stay. Our stay was my wife and I and our 2 teenage sons. We had an enjoyable and memorable stay.

                                                                                                We loved this apartment! It's beautifully set up within a small development of apartments and houses with a central garden with olive trees and flowering shrubs (all tastefully illuminated at night). If anything, the listing description is too modest. The newly-installed wi-fi worked really well and allowed us sufficient bandwidth to watch movies in the evening. We found the apartment in a clean and well-maintained condition. The kitchen had a good cooker, microwave, kettle and coffee-maker and was well-equipped for those who enjoy cooking whilst on holiday, although we found plenty of nice places to eat out in as well. About half an hour's drive from Heraklion airport, this is a great base from which to explore eastern and central Crete. A hire car is essential if you are to make the most of the opportunities of the area. We went to Heraklion, Agious Nicolaus, Malia Palace, Knossos, the ruined village of Gournia and the cave of Skotiron. Cretan driving is eccentric for those used to northern European expectations, but safe enough. Alex, the site manager, struck the perfect balance between being helpful and always on call if needed but also respected our privacy and didn't intrude. Thanks, Alex! Do ring for directions once you are within a few miles of the apartment, as Cretan road signs can leave some things creatively vague. We are interested in archeological things in general , so Crete represents a fascinating range of possibilities in that respect. Knossos was an obvious highlight for that reason, but the archaeological museum in Heraklion is an absolute must if you want to see artefacts from the Minoan period really well presented in a wonderful modern building. We also found Gournia a really thought-provoking site in a beautiful setting. We hardly scraped the surface of what there is to see in Crete and we'll certainly be returning.
