romantisches Appartement, atemberaubende Umgebung

5 of 5
Die gepflegte und im traditionell kretischen Stil erbaute Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und war als Ferienwohnung für uns zwei fast schon zu geräumig. Das Appartement verfügt über ein romantisches Schlafzimmer, gemütliches Wohnzimmer, eine Küche, einen Essbereich und ein Badezimmer. Durch die Fenster oder von der Terrasse genießt man die atemberaubende Bergwelt und den grandiosen Blick auf das Lybische Meer. Trotz der zentralen Lage, in diesem kleinen Dorf, fanden wir unerwarteten Komfort und absolute Ruhe, die nur am Sonntagmorgen kurz durch die Kirchenglocken durchbrochen wurde. Unsere liebevollen Gastgeber, versuchten permanent uns jeden Wunsch von den Lippen abzulesen. Von Giannis erhielten wir nicht nur unbezahlbare Ausflugsempfehlungen und wertvolle Tipps, er besorgte auch gleich Tickets für die Überfahrt zu der quasi gegenüber liegenden Insel Chrisi, sodass wir uns nicht persönlich darum kümmern mussten. Unweit der Appartementanlage befindet sich die einzige Taverne des Dorfes, in der wir authentisch und immer bestens gegessen haben. Besonders empfehlenswert ist hier auch der selbstgebrannte Raki/Tsikoudia. Der kleine Tante-Emma-Laden, kaum 100m entfernt, konnte allerdings nicht allen unseren Bedürfnissen gerecht werden. Größere Supermärkte gibt es beispielsweise auf dem Weg nach Ierapetra. Der nächste Lidl-Markt ist ca. 15km entfernt. Das kleine Bergdorf liegt als Ausgangspunkt wunderbar zentral für schöne Ausflüge, angefangen bei Ierapetra, Agios Nikolaos, Elounda, Vai und viele andere süd-östliche Ziele. Als Wanderer empfehlen wir insbesondere die kleine Kapelle auf dem Hausberg (toller Ausblick), die grandiose Sarakinas-Schlucht und den kleinen Ort Myrtos nebst seinem wunderschönen Strand. Familien mit Kindern sollten vielleicht auch der kleinen Eselfarm einen Besuch abstatten, in der insbesondere „Esel-Rentner“ ihren Lebensabend genießen dürfen. Über ein Mitbringsel in Form von Möhren oder Äpfeln freuen sich die lieben Vierbeiner sehr. ;-) Ich glaube, diese kann man sogar für einen Ausflug mieten (haben wir nicht gemacht). Einfach mal nach „Walk With Donkeys“ googeln. Die Kritik an den Kirchenglocken und dem winzigen Supermarkt ist wirklich Stöhnen auf hohem Niveau. Wer das "echte" Kreta entdecken will und trotzdem nicht auf Komfort verzichten mag, ist hier genau richtig. Unsere Erwartungen wurden jedenfalls deutlich übertroffen.

Exceeded expectations

5 of 5
We arrived at the villa and were greeted by the owner, Despina, who was very welcoming. Having showed us around the villa and pool, we were then pleasantly surprised to be presented with a delicious home cooked Cretan chicken meal, cooked for us by Joanna along with a bottle of local wine to complete our meal. A wonderful beginning to our holiday. The villa was very comfortable and supplied all our needs. Joanna visited us after a couple of days and gave us some traditional Cretan cakes and wanted to check that we were happy and had all we needed. Both ladies spoke excellent English and recommended some wonderful places to visit, tavernas and beaches. Mum came with us and had the guesthouse suite downstairs, with her own front door, perfect! The pool was lovely, little bit cold as we visited end of October, but we did swim practically every day and nearby Valissimos beach was beautiful, shallow warm crystal clear water and golden sands. We had a car, arranged for us by the villa owners. We were greeted at the airport and followed the young man who greeted us from the airport to the villa door! A car was necessary for the location and would recommend bringing own dvds as there are none in the villa (blu ray player) and english speaking tv was limited to news channels. The villa was visited by maids and a pool attendant every day. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, the weather was wonderful, one rainy day in 14, and the first rain in Crete for 6 months! Defintely recommend, wish we could have stayed longer!
