                                                              Modern, well-equipped villa in Crete

                                                              Aris and Marina made us very welcome in their home. The villa is obviously lived in as a family home and we were encouraged to use it as such. We visited in the first week of July and it was quite windy which helped with the very warm weather during the day although the nights were quite uncomfortable - we ended up buying a cheap fan for the main bedroom as it was the only one without one. The views from the house are beautiful and the pool was a welcome addition. Aris came over a few times to clean it and check we were happy and he was always on the end of a whatsapp to help with any queries. Skalani is a small village close to Heraklion and definitely not a tourist area which was great for us. The local taverna, a short walk from the villa, served amazing barbecues at an equally amazing price! We hired a large people carrier but, in retrospect, it might have been wiser to get two smaller cars as the roads are very narrow, steep and windy. That being said, it was quite easy to find our way around - once we had worked out how to leave the village - ignore the one way cut through! Knossos and Heraklion are a few minutes drive and there are numerous vineyards in the area. The aquarium is also worth a visit and the boys went to the waterpark which was pricey but they enjoyed it. Overall a relaxing holiday. Thank you.

                                                              Wonderful experience to recommend.

                                                              We came to spend a week in Archanes with a couple of friends. Little surprise on arrival as we had booked a villa with 2 bathrooms one we proposed with only one bathroom! The confusion came references available on the net. We had not managed to confirm our booking with good reference but the owner assured us that we would have a villa in conform with our request .. After talk with ARTEMIS, we obtained satisfaction and had a pleasant stay. More that we did not notice when booking: cleaning is done every day, linen is changed, the cleanliness is perfect. Archanes is a small, charming town, you have to walk on foot. Taverns are many and hospitality of the Cretans is very friendly. Wonderful experience to recommend.

                                                              Lovely houses in a difficult-to-access area

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              We actually stayed in the Orion house, but they are both the same. The houses are very nicely appointed, fully air-conditioned, great fridge-freezer and with wonderful views from the terrace. There are a couple of things missing from the houses which would be useful - a toaster and a washing machine (although apparently there is a communal washing machine available for a small fee). The wifi is very flaky, but that is a common issue everywhere in Crete. The TV has only one English-language channel (the ghastly Euronews) and the satellite channels are Greek only. The management (Artemis, a lovely lady) are very helpful and happy to recommend restaurants in the village of Archanes. They made us a lovely breakfast in the little reception area on our last morning for a very reasonable €10 each. The pool area is lovely, with very comfortable beds. The pool itself is very cold, though, the price one pays for being so high up in the mountains. We didn't make much use of the pool during our stay as there were families with young, noisy children monopolising it for much of the time, but chose instead to spend our days on one of the many private beaches in Ammoudara, Heraklion. A car is an absolute essential here. The houses are over 1.5 kms (not 500 meters as in some publicity) from the village, up a series of windy, unmade-up roads - it is most definitely not walkable unless you are are very young and very fit. That said, the local taxi-driver, Katerina, will pick you up from your house and take you down to the village, and back up again when you're ready, for €10, and into Heraklion for €25. She is lovely, speaks several languages and don't even ask how she manages to manoeuvre her large Merc on those roads! All in all, we had a very pleasant stay and would happily recommend these Eliathos houses. Please note that all prices quoted are as at July 2015.
