Beautiful and impressing place, big airy dining-room, nice pool and friendly people.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights and the kids loved the place, the little kittens and the pool.

The grown-ups loved the enormous dining-room and big kitchen.

We did not miss the dish-washer very much, but others may do.

The wifi worked ok (but slow) with ipads and iphones, but not with my PC which requires standard security.

Babis and his wife are very kind and friendly, and we had a great time there.

Beautiful home in Crete

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home, near Heraklion, in Crete for 3 nights in early June of 2016. The owner, Babis, was kind enough to meet us at the airport so we could follow him to the house. He also left us a basket with some snacks and milk and juice in the fridge. The house is gorgeous and spacious and the views are spectacular. It's a good, rural location, not to far from Heraklion and Knossos. We highly recommend staying at this place.
