The apartment was very nice ; high, clean, we were very well received ! You are at 5 minutes by car to the lovely town of Rethymon, and 1 hour to the Heraklion Airport. You can find all the amenities for your stay near the Radamanthy's hotel. You can rent a car and discover all the beauty of Crete ; Balos beach, Elafonissi, Falassarna, Xania ....just amazing !

I recommand this location, you'll not be dissapointed !!

A nice and quiet and freindly place to be.

  • 3 of 5

We had great holliday in the beach apartments in Sfakiki with our family(parents with 3 girls 17,15,13years old). The apartments are clean, the personal is very freindly and helpfull. Having a car during your stay is recommandebel because Sfakiki is a very smaal place and the apartments are lying up a hill. We can recomment the place to everybody, we liked it very much here.

Wir hatten das grosse Appartement dirkt am Pool. Es war wirklich traumhaft und entsprach in allen Dingen der Beschreibung. Die Anlage ist unheimlich sauber und gepflegt, es war immer ein Ansprechpartner vor Ort. Es ist ruhig und ein wenig abgelegen, aber das war genau das was wir wollten. Man kann in den Ort zum Essen zu Fuß gehen, aber wir hatten für die komplette Zeit ein Auto und sind dann abends immer zur "Taverne Poppy" gefahren. Nach einigen Proben in anderen Tavernen, war bei Poppy das Essen am besten, Preis/Leistung ist unschlagbar.. Wir würden immer wieder dies Unterkunft buchen und empfehlen sie gerne weiter.

Superior Apartments are located in the picturesque village of Sfakaki which in recent years has evolved into a very popular seaside resort, as it combines all the features for both vacations and permanent accommodation.

The village has a wonderful, long, sandy beach, just 5 minutes walking from the apartment, which is famous for the fact it is chosen by Caretta Caretta Sea turtle, which is an endangered species, for its reproduction. The beach is also ideal for sunbathing, swimming and water sports! Enjoy the well known greek sun and sea all day long!

Sfakaki is special specifically for another reason too: its has a variety of shops such as a super market, a bakery and a pharmacy, that are within hand’s reach, making ideal for a car free holiday! You can taste the well known traditional Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine in the local tavernas and restaurants, have your coffee in one of the many beach bars on the coast or go for a drink in one of the small bars.

Also in Stavromenos and Skaleta just 3 minutes away by car, guests will find a butcher shop, an ATM machine and a petrol station.

Additionally, its proximity to the highway, makes it easy to move around and travel almost anywhere in Crete and explore the amazing landscape and beautiful rustic villages! It is only 15 minutes’ drive away from the city of Rethymno and 1 hour (70 Kms) from the International Airport of Heraklion.
