He is a delightful man, and his attention far exceeded the traditional Cretan welcome. He could not have been more hospitable, friendly and helpful, and we thank him very much. He says, modestly, that his English is not very good; his English is very good ! This house is beautiful. It is a very thoughtful and tasteful conversion of his parents' village home, and sits high above the road, with spectacular views - from the large terrace - of the Gulf of Mirabello, and the coastal village of Mourtos down below. Eat freshly caught fish there, at one of the tavernas right on the water's edge. The mountains rise behind the village, and the sunsets are spectacular. There is everything in this house that you could possibly need - it is superbly equipped, and tastefully furnished and decorated. Nikos's welcome basket contained a spectacular collection of his own produce, including wine, olive oil, raki, sundried tomatoes, olive paste, etc, and a selection of biscuits from his wife's patisserie in Sitea. The fridge had boxes of fresh fruit, tomatoes and courgettes, and we could not have enjoyed them all more than we did...fresh grapes and figs for breakfast, looking out over that wonderful view - what could be better ! There is a lovely village taverna just a minute's walk from the house, and others (which we did not try) in neighbouring villages. There are gorges to walk, beaches to find, monasteries and Minoan sites to visit. You will never run out of 'things to do' if you stay here. We cannot recommend Agrilos Sea View House highly enough - book it for next year; you will not be disappointed. Nikos's friend Pantelis, in Athens, will make your arrangements until you arrive, when Nikos will take over.
