The place looks even better than on the foto's! Very clean/new/well maintained. Pool and house cleaned every 4 days. Comfortable beds and a silend airco in every room. We had a very pleasant stay with our 17/19 year daughters. Little town is 2 min by car and has supermarket and plenty top restaurants. Tip: for nice sunset go to the Bunga Bunga bar/restaurant on the beach dir. Matala (10 min by car) We would highly recomment this property

Elizabeth and Manolis were soo nice and always available for any request. The region is ideal if you want to discover the cretan people. I can recommand this place to everybody
