                                                                                                We had such a lovely time staying in this delightful cottage! The village of Agios Stefanos is extremely charming, nestled into the mountainside overlooking the rugged south coast. We found the local Greeks and Europeans to be very helpful and friendly, offering useful local knowledge and making us feel very welcome indeed. The cottage itself is on the edge of this old village, offering privacy and accessibility. It is extremely well equipped and comfortable. The Mosquito Blinds ensure the inside remains free of bugs, although there are very few mosquitoes around anyway, so we could enjoy evenings on the roof looking at the stars and stunning surroundings. There is also plenty to do and see in the area - Vraiko Cave outside Pefki village offers an impressive and extensive stalagtite/mite series of interlocking chambers. We felt like explores discovering this gem for the first time, as there is no lighting/walk-ways etc (or entry charge). The folk museum, mountaintop church and Gorge Walk around Pefki are also great activities to do when you're not exploring the various sandy or rocky beaches. These are quite different from each other - some good for snorkelling (dragon's cave near Kalo Nero) and others better for younger children, such as the main beach at Makrigialos Beach, which is sandy with shallow calm water close to parking and the town facilities. We also enjoyed some days simply relaxing at the cottage and reading some of the interesting books from the cottage 'mini library'. We were particularly grateful for the wealth of information contained in the Visitor Book at the cottage, packed with helpful tips from a wide range of appreciative visitors. We very much hope to come here again! Francis and Avril

We were the only people staying at the apartments and Costas was a generous host - he was always in reception when we went out and came back from trips. The beaches and archeology are wonderful - I would recommend staying.

Restaurants and bars - plenty of choice within a short walk. Supermarket within walking distance and also Lidl near the petrol station on the approach to Sitia (car required). Only very minor comment would be the lack of a shower screen or curtain made it slightly awkward having a shower without drowning the floor but this was a minor detail and we would still rate this apartment as excellent!
