The sea was so much closer than we thought at to wake up to that every morning watching the sunrise while sitting on the balcony was like a dream. The owners are unbelievably friendly and welcoming making our stay that much more comfortable and amazing. We were greeted on arrival by Mr Xanthoudakis who provided us with some raki and wine and with some grapes and food in the fridge, even though we had just taken a rushed detour to a local shop to make sure we had everything! The apartment is a 10 mins drive away from Kissamos where there are plenty of markets and cafés, along with shops. Apartment was cleaned roughly every 3 days by Mrs Xanthoudakis and her group of cleaners who do an absolutely fantastic job and even left us anow amazing homemade berry pie one time! We will definitely have this apartment for our annual getaway holiday for the foreseeable future!

Good country walks on the doorstep, easy driving distance to Chania. The Villa was very clean and all essential needs were provided. We found the people of Crete very helpful and friendly, and very much so enjoyed our visit. Local food produce was fresh and the meals at the local Taverna's we visited were wonderful! A very relaxing atmosphere in the Villa, surrounded by mountain views. A great place to feel away from the 'hussle and bussle' of life. Plenty to do if you like nature and ancient history and good food!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It’s a good starting point for journeys through the West of Crete as it is only some minutes to the main road E75/90 through Crete. You can than easily take the specific road to the West, to the South, to Samaria…. The closest beach Kalyves is about 10 min away and a nice one without crowds of tourists (as we have experienced in October). We have even received several traditional dinner dishes prepared by the mother of Ioannis. And the fridge contained already food for us, we even found the tasty raki with honey. Exceptional service and direct contact! The flat is clean and is being cleaned about every 4 days, you also get fresh towels. The pictures show the reality you will find in the flat. We can really recommend the house for your stay in Crete!
