Great house and great host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this great and cosy house for 13 days. It is located just 30 metes from the beach and you can hear the waves :-) The house was spaceous enough for my family of 5 (three kids). Eleni showed great service when we arrived and during our stay, we even got help with a little car problem :-). When we arrived some food was stocked in the refrigerator and a delicious cake that we really loved. We definitely recommend this rental.

A wonderful location and just a few steps away from the beach for your morning swim with the taverna just along the road for drinks and evening meal. If you looking for peace and quiet, this is the ideal spot.

Liakada was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well maintained. It was lovely to sit outside on the patio, looking at the sea having breakfast, lunch or evening meal and hearing the waves lap up onto the beach. The owner, Eleni, made us feel very welcome with her homemade cake, olive oil, home made wine, raki, fruit, milk, etc. on our arrival. She would pop by everyday to make sure we had everything we needed and was very helpful in informing us of places to visit. A wonderful lady.

Would recommend hiring a car (easy access to main road) to take yourselves off to explore this island as there are some lovely beaches dotted around where you can just sit and watch the sun go down. Kissamos is about a 10/15 minute drive where you will find many good restaurants and cafes.

Great place to recover from workaday life

  • 5 of 5

Very clean spacious house with ocean view, nice terrace & beautiful garden. There's a gravel beach with clear water. We've been alone there most of the time.

Eleni is a very friendly hostess, really caring about her guests.

The area around is very quiet.

For grocery shopping and trips a car is recommendable, even though there's a bus from both airports to Drapanias and there are busses to Kissamos and Chania.

lovely house in quiet area

  • 5 of 5

House Liakarda is the ideal place for a relaxed holiday. Eleni, our host, made us feel very welcome with enough food in the kitchen to get us started. Among that, fresh eggs from her farm and even a homemade cake!

The house is big enough for a big family and is also suited for three grown up couples. The house is absolutely spotlessly clean and the garden is well maintained. There is everything you need in the house. A very well equipped kitchen, so you can cook proper meals.

There is a view to the sea, which is just 1 minute away. The area is peaceful and quiet and a bit “rough”, but it is not deserted, there is a good taverna 10 minutes away and a few more within walking distance, all serving lovely food.

Eleni and her husband are very good hosts. They are very helpful and they do everything they can to make sure you have a lovely holiday. In our case, they even helped us find another good place to stay, when we ran into difficulties with a house we had rented the following week. This is far beyond what anyone could expect! Thank you again!!

We definitely want to come back another time, either in House Liakarda or if we come alone, in one of the “Beautiful Eleni” houses, also owned by Eleni.

We will recommend the house to anyone who likes to experience the “original Greece”, enjoying all the modern conveniences at the same time!

Immaculate house by the sea and close to a taverna

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the House Liakada was excellent! Spotlessly clean and very well maintained, we had everything we needed from kitchenware to towels and bedlinen to Wi-fi. Adequately slept 6 of us in comfortable beds. Eleni was the perfect hostess and even picked us up from the bus stop in Kastelli. [We took the bus from Chania to Kastelli]

We were greeted with Eleni's homemade cake, olive oil and wine from their farm and Raki, the local brew (!!!). The sea is 100ft from the house which means having a morning swim before breakfast is the best way to start the day! A few leisurely minutes' walk brings you to the local taverna where we were greeted like long lost friends and spent many a night enjoying the excellent food and company.

The town of Kastelli is 5 minutes away; we didn't have a car but on our first day hooked up with a taxi-driver who would come and get us at a moment's notice. You could even walk along the coast to the town if you felt so inclined (about 45+ minutes depending on your pace).

If we weren't at the taverna or the town of Kastelli then we spent evenings on the veranda or sitting on the beach. This is the ideal location for those who don't want to be knee-deep in noisy tourist resorts but still be amongst friendly people. Great for families or a bunch of friends. Also an excellent base for those wishing to do some touring around the area and for those who like hiking.

Eleni and Takis made us feel very welcome and I would definitely recommend the House Liakada to anyone who wants to relax by the sea and enjoy true Cretan hospitality.

Es ist alles wie beschrieben - nur noch schöner!

Everything as described - and even better!

2 wundervolle Wochen mit 6 Personen - Eleni war eine perfekte Gastgeberin die das Haus mit Liebe eingerichtet hat und es in perfekter Ordnung und Sauberkeit hält.

A perfect stay and a wonderful host - most recommendable place, we will be back! Same for Eleni's attached appartements virtually on the beach, that we also used.

Hervorragender Zuschnitt der Wohnung mit separaten Balkons für die oberen Schlafzimmer, großer Veranda und schönem Garten mit Schattenplätzen.

Vorbehaltlos zu empfehlen - wir werden definitiv wiederkommen - Empfehlung auch für die angeschlossenen Appartements direkt am Strand.

Drapanias is a small village in north-western Crete. It was built in the ruins of the ancient town of Mythimna.

Drapanias can be accessed via the main road to Kissamos. The small traditional village has 3 traditional Greek taverns which serve Greek food and are more than happy to play a game of tavli with you. The village has two bakeries in which you can find home made pastries, bread and cakes and there is also one small shop, selling basic products. A large church is at the heart of Drapanias, situated in the square. The church holds regular services on Sundays and is the soul of many of the locals. Frequent KTEL buses connect the village with various locations, such as Kissamos and Chania.

The west coast of Crete includes some of the most famous sights such as Elafonisi, Falasarna and Balos on Cape Gramvousa, which you all can easily reach from Drapanias by car or boat. Also exists a bus service from Drapanias/Paralia to the famous gorge of Samaria. Furthermore there are three smaller gorges nearby of our location: The gorge of Roka, which is in our direct neighbourhood, the gorge of Delanion and Sirikari gorge, which leads you to wellknown ancient Polirinia. Not far away on a wonderful road to Elafonisi you will find also the breathtaking cave of Santa Sofia.
