                                                          Appartement confortable, très propre, avec une grande terrasse ensoleillée et ombragée, conforme au descriptif. La situation géographique de l'appartement permet des excursions vers l'ensemble des sites à visiter (Knossos, Malia, Phaiestos, Agios Nikolaus, Rethymnon...). La plage est proche de l'appartement, ainsi que les commerces. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Eli, qui nous a bien conseillés. L'équipement de la cuisine est correct mais basique pour ceux qui veulent cuisiner eux-mêmes. C'est une adresse que nous recommandons à tous.
