|Minimum Stay||1 - 2 nights|
My name is Peter and I am a “Travel Advisor” for Palekastro area in eastern Crete which is without a doubt the most beautiful part of Crete. This is not an area where you can find big all-inclusive hotels, crowded beaches, lively night life, tons of souvenir shops and many fellow tourists around you. But rather a one of few places where you can experience a traditional Cretan life, enjoy empty beaches, have a view of olive gardens and sea from your accommodation, be surrounded by unspoiled nature and visit some archeological and historical sites. Local beaches are of not so many beaches awarded the Blue Flag for superior water cleanliness and environmental protection. Palekastro is also a short driving distance from the unique palm beach Vai.
The Travel Advisor means that I cooperate with local accommodation owners, Cretan rental car companies, a local bike and scooter rental shop, windsurfing centers and restaurants to help foreign guests plan their holidays in this beautiful part of Crete. I don’t give any personal preferences in regards to particular accommodations but rather I share my local knowledge with prospective guests to simplify their selection of the best accommodation for their particular needs. With regards to car rentals I explain different car categories with examples and how the system works in Crete (unfortunately we have some dishonest companies here). If the guests are interested I can submit a non-binding, usually discounted, price quote from a reliable rental car company with car deliveries all over Crete.
Yes, we don´t have big tourist crowds here but we also don’t have that many apartments available. There are maybe only 30 apartments alongside Kouremenos beach and those are usually fully booked by early spring for the high season mid June – mid September. But even apartments further from the beach are eventually booked for the high season. Last minute discounts are non-existent here for the high season.
If you were interested in any apartment please send me an inquiry about availability before making the official reservation request. We advertise through many channels and availability changes constantly so calendars could be outdated and I really hate to decline any reservation requests and disappoint interested guests. Always have a confirmed accommodation before buying air tickets. It might sound strange but it is easier to get available flights to Heraklion in the high season than to get a good available accommodation in Palekastro area.
After my personal introduction and general information I would like to present information for this accommodation called Studio in Palekastro - Agathias.
This listing is for studios which have two regular beds and a third bed can be added. There is a well-equipped kitchenette, very clean bathroom with shower and always available cold and hot water (if there is a big demand for water the owner runs a regular water heater and a water pressure pump). Air-conditioner and high speed Wi-Fi internet are available at no extra charge. Daily cleaning service is included. Each studio has an own veranda with at least partial view of the sea which is about 1 km away. There is a common area under the tree with tables and chairs where you can have a breakfast or an afternoon cup of tea or coffee. A portable barbecue can be used for preparing some grilled meals. A washing machine is available as well as an iron or ironing board. A special baby bed and/or a baby chair can be provided. Free parking is available in front of the building.
The village has one mini market and several taverns. Palekastro with many shops, taverns, a bank and a pharmacy is next to the village about 0,5 km.
The owner is the president of the local tourist association. He is present 24/7 and always available to help his guests.
We have several same studios which differ in tiny details like a door to the bathroom in a different place or different verandas. So if you see that our studio is not available for your dates send us a message and we can make other studio available.
The description was accurate and the property was spotless and well maintained. We were the only people staying at the apartments and Costas was a generous host - he was always in reception when we went out and came back from trips. The beaches and archeology are wonderful - I would recommend staying.
