A wonderfully spacious house in a traditional village. The week was wonderful with the swimming pool in a delightful well kept garden. Thank you for your great generosity and gifts.

Kalyves such a charming place very genuine all restaurants we visited excellent. Town house had everything we needed. Only downside beach by villa has big rocks in sea that you can't always see. Town beach better to swim but busier. Bus great managed to go to Chania, Samaria, Elafonisi and Rethmnon all amazing day trips. Hope to visit again!

The landlord Panos is a great host, decent and ready to help you with whatever you might need. The apartment is perfectly equipped with everything you need. The beach is 2 min away and enjoyed this beautiful beach everyday. There are so many restaurants and cafes near the apartment which offer a big variety of greek food. It's hard to choose and all of them were good. Except for the one at the entrance of Almyrida that has suggested by trip advisor. All other restaurants were so delicious. All in all it was a trip we will never forget !
