We were sitting at the terrace at sunrise and sunset, looking at the changing colours of the sea, sky and mountains through the day, Hearing the "dook-dook" from the boats for Spinalonga. The sea was near by, we had our own swimming pool, the center of Elounda was a five minutes walk away. There we went to the market for buying fresh vegetables, or for a nice dinner in the evening. Agios Nicholaos was also a short trip away, by car or by bus. We have lots of good memories and hope to come back. Greetings from the Norwegian guests.

The view was just amazing,every morning I just loved to sit out with my coffee and marvel at the view. The house was very well stocked , e.g lots of towels , kitchen equipment, a good coffee maker!. We will be returning. I don't think anyone would be disappointed.
