Great Place to stay

5 of 5
Firstly, Panos was very helpful and gave us lots of information to make our stay perfect. The apartment is spacious and clean and has the most amazing views. The roof terrace is the icing on the cake. Views to die for, sun all day, shady places to sit in and a great place to people watch. The village has everything you need, sea, beach, shops, restaurants, bars, taxi if you need to go anywhere, but why would you? We had a great time and will be going back again.

enchanting view and peace and quiet

5 of 5
I loved this house. the view is amazing as the house is on the top of a hill and you can see down to the church dome amongst the trees and beyond to the city lights and horizon. the House was really comfortable and spacious. The neighbours were friendly and quiet which is important to me as I'm noise-sensitive! The local supermarket was the best one I've been to in Chania as they had home-produced cheese and olive oil, etc. The lady who looks after the property is very helpful and kind without being intrusive. But if I'd wanted some company she would have included me in her family's Easter celebrations. In fact she gave me some bread she'd baked. Three terraces for different times of the day. So it was perfect.
