Beautiful apartment - spacious roof terrace with great view - nice holiday resort
At the beginning of October we were guests in Panos' apartment with 4 adults for a little less than 2 weeks. We felt very comfortable and enjoyed our time in the apartment and on the beautiful roof terrace very much. Looking at the sea already in the morning at breakfast time - either from the terrace or out of the apartment - always brings us into a good mood.
Panos had already provided us with interesting information about the area in advance and also made sure that we found something to eat and drink after our arrival in the apartment. All arrangements with Panos worked well - Panos is really an attentive and interested host.
Almyrida is a nice place with a number of restaurants, supermarkets, a very good bakery, ice cream parlour and a beautiful beach. Since we wanted to make trips into the surroundings, to Chania, Rethymnon, Arkadi etc., we had already booked a rental car and could explore the area very well.
We had a very relaxed and restful holiday in the apartment of Panos and also in Almyrida. We will be happy to come back.
We had a wonderful week staying in the House in the Sun. Kathy and Chris made us feel at home the moment we arrived. The flat is well equipped and really well planned. There were many thoughtful additions such as the welcome basket and beach towels.
We really didn't want for anything.
We were woken by the tinkling bells around the necks of the next door sheep and a wonderful sunrise every day. The view across the valley is full of all that Crete has in abundance, olives, figs, walnuts and showed us the path to walk to the next village where we came across a newly painted church to St Anthony.
The local taverna is well worth a visit. The owners are helpful and the food is honest and very local. Vryses, the nearest town, is a very traditional town which has several small supermarkets and tavernas.
Every day we did a trip in our hired car. We visited Chania and Rethymno, two towns with Venetian harbours, which are really attractive. The harbour in Chania was home to a very large turtle, which obliged us by doing a 'belly roll' and waving his flippers. We also visited Hora Sfakion, which involved a breathtaking drive over the mountains. We saw Griffon Vultures circling overhead and mountain goats perched on tiny ledges along the way. The harbour is where you can take a boat along the coast to secluded beaches - we chose lunch overlooking the sea and enjoyed every mouthful.
We would recommend the accommodation and location without hesitation. Joan and Julian
