Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Margarita's house was a wonderful find. We had the self contained upper floor with a conservatory entrance that led directly out onto the terrace and private swimming pool with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. We watched eagles, vultures and falcons every day. The main, double bedroom has a terrace looking out over the front of the house giving another lovely view and morning shade. We drank our breakfast coffee here everyday whilst our two teenagers slept in. The house is unique and full of Margarita's own art work and spiritual warmth - she is a doll maker. The short road leading up from the village is steep and takes a little getting used to and whilst the house does not have 5 star luxury, it is spacious, beautifully decorated and I would recommend it highly to those with a slightly more adventurous nature who aren't looking for all luxury and mod cons.

Margarita was warm and welcoming and invited us to watch her in a traditional play and provided many recommendations. She could not have been more helpful. When we didn't want to drive, the 10 min walk down into the village to the local taverna in the square proved invaluable serving up good portions of traditional greek fare at very good prices.

Hôtesse et séjour très sympathiques

  • 4 of 5

Margarita nous a offert un accueil formidable dans un gîte bien équipé et superbement situé. Nous avons ainsi découvert la campagne crétoise et profité de la proximité d'Héraklion (une voiture est cependant nécessaire pour visiter les différents sites )

Le gîte possède une très belle pièce de vie et la possibilité de couchage pour 2 couples . En revanche la mezzanine proposée pour des couchages supplémentaires n' est pas facile d'accès.

Merci encore à Margarita pour cette première découverte de la Crète.
