Good location, can you fit in with the locals?

4 of 5
This well-located property is in a street just inside the Venetian city walls. Everywhere within Heraklion city centre is within an easy and enjoyable walk. This is where you should be if you want to experience living in a city several thousand years old. Be aware that many of the streets are not suitable for modern vehicles and large parts of the city centre are (thankfully) pedestrianised. The alleys off this "street" can only be accessed on foot which makes this a cut-through (just) for cars and (more sensibly) for motorbikes. Within the flat none of this will bother you but if you have a hire car you will be disadvantaged. There is no public parking except the streets and brown field sites where you will pay. There is one at the beginning of the street. Pay your fees each day (£5), explain when you want your car and they will advise on where to park. After we damaged our hire car (a 4WD truck, yes really!) trying to get up the street to the flat, we parked it and wheeled our baggage up the street. Don't take heavy bags, you will need to lift them up a staircase to the first floor flat. This is not an affluent area, many of the properties are derelict and grafitti is everywhere. We experienced no personal security issues in these alleyways. The two rooms of the flat have stone walls which insulate against noise and heat. Air conditioning in the main room is invaluable. The fourth wall is largely single glazed windows and shutters for privacy and protection against the sun. Noise streams in and out of these (Heraklion centre is under the flight path). This and surrounding properties occupy segments of the open space between them. In the southern mediterranean, people (and their dogs) spend mornings/evenings outside or inside with their doors and windows open. If you are not ready for this, go and lock yourself away in a hotel bedroom somewhere. At night the higher you can get, the more chance of a breeze. Above the kitchen/bathroom there is a table and chairs, great when the sun goes down but if there is a tremor, you'll wonder whether being so high was sensible! Everything works (immersion heater for hot water, wireless internet router, oven etc) so long as someone in the flat below remembers to turn on the pump for your water supply! We enjoyed some great meals from the kitchen (suggestion for improvement: a chopping board). This is a place for travellers interested in experiencing, for a time, life as the locals live it. Enjoy!

Beautiful Villa, excellent hosts

5 of 5
We stayed in Romantic Evas Cottage for 2 weeks on our family holiday. The house itself was beautiful and clean. There is a fantastic pool outside and the garden is lovely. All of the rooms have air conditioning which was great. Eva and Yiannis were the perfect hosts - they met us at the airport and helped us home with our luggage. The fridge was fully stocked when we arrived, and Eva prepared us a meal. They prepared us a further 2 meals throughout the holiday which was a treat. Eva also bakes an exellent cake! (i would love the recipe!). On our day of departure, we had to be out at 12, but our flight wasnt until the evening, so they provided an alternative place for us to store our luggage and pass some time. Yiannis then helped us back to the airport with our luggage. Over all this was a wonderful holiday! Thank you very much :-D
