|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Just moments away from Trachilos beach.Perfect for a long stay,especially for travelers who seek to enjoy the famous beaches of western Crete, such as Balos,Falasarna & Elafonisi. Its fireplace makes it also ideal for winter trips.Breakfast supplies included.
The cottage is located next to the port, making travelling to Balos particularly easy. The architectural design of the house is such that air-conditioning is not required (although is provided as of the 1st of April 2015), not even the hottest days of summer. On winter, the fireplace and the additional heaters that are provided make an indeed cozy nest for you to enjoy.
We aim to give you full privacy during your stay, but if you need us we will be happy to help you in any way possible.
The position of our cottage is ideal for daily trips to western Crete (Balos, Gramvousa bay etc). Also it is near the village of Kasteli so you won't be far from supplies and other services you might need. Not 5 minutes by car from the house, there are 2 of the best fish taverns we have visited so far. Of course we should mention the lovely beach that is 2 minutes away on foot from the cottage.More details will be available to you at our guest book as soon as you arrive.
There is public transportation to our cottage. If you are traveling with your car you can safely park it within the house premises.
In case you need to rent a car, let us know; we can secure probably the best deal you can find.
Trying to make you feel at home, I will provide you all the bedding and towels you might need.Breakfast supplies are included. To be more exact, as you arrive you will find a fridge and a cupboard filled with delicious traditional and continental goodies - we are sure that you will love it!
Any & everyone is welcome at our cottage, as long as they are well-mannered. You can also bring your pet, as long as you are responsible for it and anything they do. Smoking is allowed.
Staring at the clear night sky, complete silence, you and your loved ones on the porch; imagine it. See it yourself.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this affordable beach rental. Sofia and Spyros were very pleasant and accommodating hosts. From the rental, we were able to walk to the beach quickly and easily. We enjoyed the house itself too: the overall amount of space, the beach view, the natural light, the wind, and the sun. The French doors, large windows, and wood shutters throughout the house were lovely. Overall, a very nice surprise after a long journey. The closest town, Kissimos, is quite close and offers all the things you want--sights and fresh food being the most important! A bit of drive to the airport (and therefore Knossos), but 100% worth it. Highly recommended. Would return.
La maison offre une superbe vue sur la mer, dont on peut largement profiter de la terrasse. 2 mn à pied suffisent pour rejoindre une belle petite plage. En voiture, le port est tout proche ( excellent restaurant) et la ville de Kissamos également. ( boire un café frappé sur les terrasses de cette ville en front de mer ! )
C'est une location idéale pour découvrir l'ouest de la Crête, les gorges de Samaria, toute la baie de Kissamos. Nous avons adoré la plage de Balos, à rejoindre par une piste puis petite marche.
Sofia et Spyros sont de vrais crétois, très serviables et gentils. La maison est simple mais très bien équipée, très fonctionnelle pour profiter de son environnement naturel.
Nous le recommandons à tous ceux qui veulent découvrir la Crête de l'ouest.
The old but confortable house is exactely as the pictures. It is situate in a very quiet place, 5 mn walking from a small but sandy beach and very close to the port to go to Balos lagoon. You can have the meal or a rest on the "terrasse" looking the sea. Sofia and Spyros, the owners, are very friendly and helpful. They want everything is welldone ok and can help you to rent a car. From there, you can easely go to the more beautiful western beaches (Balos, Fallasarna or Elafonisi). An other good point, the breafast is included. Unfortunately, we stayed only 3 nights.
The cottage itself was perfect: cosy, clean, well mantained... We felt at home!
The surroindings are spectacular. You can easily reach beautifull beaches, small villages...
People around are very kind and it's worth to know some of them.
Not very far away you can find a lot of supermarkets, restaurants,taverns and so.
The owner gave us an excellent service and took care of us all the time.
Definitly I will recomend the property to my friends.
The property is a great place, located in a very quiet place. It is not a holiday resort, there is just one or two hotels nearby and a couple of villas. So you wake up hearing the goats and rooster crowing :) which is great. The beach is really close, and the sunbeds are just 2 euros each. The beach is great especially for children - the sea is quiet and there are very few people. There is everything you need to cook in the house, and so we did (we love cooking). You can do shopping in Kissamos which is very close. I loved the mornings on the terrace, with a cup of delicious coffee (there is a good coffee maker), looking at the see and the mountains... I really recommend to everyone - the house is really comfortable, the place is really quiet. Spyros and Sofia were very hospitable, and did everything to make our stay very comfortable and nice. We will be back - maybe somewhere in winter?
Sofia and Spyros made our family and our children feel welcome at their wonderful cottage. The cottage is large and airy. It is very comfortable, and we felt at home there. It was so pleasant to enjoy the view of the sea from the patio. There is a small uncrowded beach in front of the cottage, a 5 minute walk. The area is not particularly picturesque, but we enjoyed our stay nevertheless. It was nice to have a beach so close, even if it was not the best beach in Crete. There were goats, sheep, and chickens nearby that the children enjoyed seeing.There are taverns and mini markets within a 5 minute drive, and Kissamos is just a few miles away. The ferries that go to Balos and Gramvuosa are within walking distance to the cottage. And the beautiful beach and ancient ruins of Falassarna are only a 25 minute drive away. There is also a nice beach on the other side of Kissamos, a few minute drive from the cottage. We really enjoyed are stay at the cottage. We hope to be back some day.
