Wonderful experience to recommend.

  • 4 of 5

We came to spend a week in Archanes with a couple of friends.

Little surprise on arrival as we had booked a villa with 2 bathrooms one we proposed with only one bathroom!

The confusion came references available on the net. We had not managed to confirm our booking with good reference but the owner assured us that we would have a villa in conform with our request ..

After talk with ARTEMIS, we obtained satisfaction and had a pleasant stay.

More that we did not notice when booking: cleaning is done every day, linen is changed, the cleanliness is perfect.

Archanes is a small, charming town, you have to walk on foot.

Taverns are many and hospitality of the Cretans is very friendly.

Wonderful experience to recommend.

nice, but loud

  • 4 of 5

We went to Vereniki for a one week stay, a party of 5.

As we arrived, we had a good welcome and found everything a vacation home needs - full equiped kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms etc.

The pool was also great and well furnished.

We were happy that the flat was cleaned and the trash disposed regularly. Also, that there were always new towels.

Nevertheless, the people above, whoever it was, moved objects from 9 a.m. until the afternoon, which was really annoying.

We have some suggestions: please, please change the roller blind, which is disgusting, in the usually great bathroom. Also we would suggest a standard potato peeler for the kitchen. Some people of our party would have liked a real blanket, so we suggest to offer these for every bedroom.

We had nevertheless a great stay and were happy to have chosen Vereniki :)
