Great & calm location, fair price

  • 4 of 5

We rented a small studio there for two weeks in September / October. Melina was a great host. Kastri is a wonderful location to spend a soothing and relaxing vacation. We really enjoyed our 2 weeks there, going to the beach there every day, having lunch in one of the amazingly welcoming taverns along the water line and of course eating diner on our small balcony watching the sunset. Kastri is a nice starting point to visit the south central part of Crete. The studio had all necessary features you need.

Only 2 negative points. First: the mosquitoes: I personally would have enjoyed some mosquito nets in the window frames. Second is the quite hard mattress and the 190cm bed frame with bedpost, which is somewhat inconvenient for big people like me. Thus only 4 stars out of 5.

Summary: very good value for money

Beschauliche Zeit in Kastri

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung liegt sehr schön auf einer Anhöhe mit dem Blick auf das Meer. Es war sehr ruhig und wir konnten gemütlich auf dem Balkon sitzen. Ausstattung und Sauberkeit waren gut. Abends war es nicht weit zu den urigen Tavernen am Meer. Wo man wunderbar sitzen und die einheimischen Gerichte genießen konnte.

We absolutely loved it

  • 5 of 5

The seaside is beautiful, we liked that the village was not so touristic but a fishing village. The beach next to thhe church was desert it was wonderful. We ate lunch and dinner at the taverna kriti , it was fresh fish from the port and fresh meat from the farm (and vegetable the same) so only local production. The restaurant owner was so friendly and he liked to served and conseil us some typical dishes. Everything was delicious. Then there is a bar the aeriko cafe which is nice to cocktails and drinks. The panoramic appartment is beautiful, clear, clean, and Hanna and Melina are very nice and réactive if you ask them something.

We'll definitely come back!

Wundervoller, idyllischer Urlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Unser Apartement war sehr sauber und von der Größe und der Ausstattung vollkommen ausreichend, da wir meist unterwegs waren! Das beste bei dem warmen Wetter war die Klimaanlage:) Auch Melina war super nett und hat uns gute Tipps gegeben und uns sogar zum Listis Strand gebracht, wohl mit dem schönsten Strand auf Erden!! Kochen konnte man auch gut, wobei wir meistens in einen der nahen Tavernen gegessen haben- auch sehr zu empfehlen und sehr lecker, vor allem auch für Vegetarier, was wir nicht gedacht hätten! Strände sind zu Fuß in 10min zu erreichen. Alles hier war sehr idyllisch, das Dorf Kastri klein aber fein mit allem, was man braucht und auf jeden Fall nicht so touristisch wie an der Nordküste. Man braucht, wenn man sich mehr von der Insel anschauen will definitiv ein Auto, denn Busse fahren hier nicht. Insgesamt ein richtig toller Urlaub! Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!:)

Kastri is a very nice place to have a holiday. People are friendly and nice and the village is very quiet. Hi, First off the place is perfect for piece and quiet. Everyone is wellcoming and you can walk to the village (like 5 min tops) and Kristi taverne where we had most of our diners. The beaches around are beautifull and quiet (drive 5 -10 minutes top).
