Our grandson slept very well at night and was full of beans next day for new adventures. The pool was not very warm but we were in a few times, the beaches were more tempting at this time of year. Stefani was very attentive and we were very grateful of the late checkout on last day as our flight home was 11.00pm

Elle est très bien située, autant pour les endroits à visiter que pour les restos locaux à proximité, sur le bord de la mer, où il est possible d'aller à pied! L'accueil chaleureux que nous avons reçu était hors de l'ordinaire. Étant donné notre arrivée tardive, Eva nous avait préparé des plats maison ainsi qu'un gâteau, ce que nous avons dégustés avec un bon verre de vin, également gracieuseté de nos hôtes. Je m'en voudrais de terminer sans souligner leur très grande disponibilité et leurs bons conseils. Merci d'avoir fait de notre séjour en Crête une si belle expérience! Notre seul regret... de ne pas être restés plus longtemps! Josée, Denis ainsi que Marie et Yves
