Apartment is stylish, modern and well set up. Scores highly on location, amenities and cleanliness. Has all the stuff you need for the beech (except obviously towels). We could not work out the television and wifi did not cover downstairs area; neither of this bothered us. Lots of cafes around, you are on the beech and can go for a stroll or run whenever you want. Only a short walk from village centre which we liked. Shop across the road and coach stop very close by.

The house was decorated to the highest standard and the views from the rooftop terrace were breathtaking. Evelina supplied water, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls,soap powder and conditioner for washing, something that we have always had to buy ourselves when arriving at previous holiday rentals. We had the most amazing chilled holiday at Evelina's house and was made to feel welcome and part of Evilana's family during our stay, we were sad to leave, but will definitely be returning not only for our holiday, but to see Evelina and her family again. Thank you Evelina to you and your family for making us feel welcome in your beautiful home in Chania. Look forward to seeing you again.
