A lovely house in the charming traditional cretian village of Anapoli,with fabulous views from the upstairs balconies . The house was well equipped and felt like a home .
Manolis was a very kind and helpful man who gave good advice on local tavernas and places to visit. The village is close to shops, beach , and restaurants in Kokkini Hani ,we visited the aquarium in Gournes which was very good.
Located in the quiet town of Gouves, this villa is perfect to escape for a peaceful, private holiday. I went with just my girlfriend and I, and it was amazing, so relaxing and out of the way. However it does sleep six, so would be great for a holiday with friends as well. Despite the secluded location, it is still relatively easy to get to the sea front, or local towns such as Heraklion or Malia. It would be ideal for those renting a car as these towns are both about a 20 minute taxi ride away. A taxi is very easy to get from the super friendly guys at ‘Spiros’, a wonderful restaurant in the town. Where you can sit and enjoy a beer, or a raki until your taxi arrives.
Lisa was an excellent host and made sure we did not need anything, as well as being on the end of the phone day and night responding to any query we had.
The only downside was the rather steep hill up to the town, which may be difficult for those who do not walk as much, however it was not difficult by the end of our week there and also was worth the effort to get the delicious, freshly baked bread from the bakery.
We had an amazing time staying here and have already started thinking about when we can go back.
