There is a supermarket directly opposite the house, which is very welcome when you need basic supplies. The house is well laid out to take advantage of the sea views. The bedrooms are on the ground floor with 2 balconies off the main one, which we only used for laundry as there was another lovely balcony off the living area on the top floor. The house is very well equipped, clean and modern. We didn't hire a car as we prefer to walk from our accommodation or use local transport which we found very easy. The bus stop to Chania is right next to the house. The beach is literally 1 minute’s walk away. The area is beautiful, we really enjoyed our walks which take in stunning views and lovely beaches. The local restaurants offer really good food and friendly service. The only thought we had was that in high season the upstairs balcony would overlook other houses balconies but as we were there at the end of the season we didn’t have any near neighbours. Christina was very friendly and accommodating and any arrangements were very efficiently dealt with.

                                                                                                      Angeliki is a small, well restored cottage/farm building next to and surrounded by a working farm. The terrace is fantastic with excellent views of the white mountains, the carob tree is not only beautiful but offers dappled shade. Although it is relatively close to the village (with tavernas ans shop) and about 20 minutes from two seaside towns we felt like we're deep in the country where little has changed in years. There are wild birds, plants, crickets, frogs and cicadas, along with spectacular mountains and gorgeous sunsets. The farm has chickens, pigs and goats and sheep feeding in the olive groves. It is full of the sounds of a farm (cockerels and sheep bells) as well as wild birds and insects. We loved it and would come again in a heart beat apart from access issues. It is not the house's fault as it is a historic building but there are steps (1,2 or three) into every room and if you are arthritic it makes moving through the building a bit difficult. The bedrooms are large and comfortable but the living space is small though this is compensated for by the fantastic terrace. Maria comes into clean regularly and is really friendly as are the neighbours and the people in the taverna in the village. Great place, brilliant locality and really interesting area with historic Ancient Greek site and good beaches.
