L'année a été difficile?
Voici la meilleure façon de vous détendre:
Prenez le premier avion pour Héraklion,louez une voiture et en route pour 13 kilomètres, jusqu'au petit village d'Anopolis : c 'est un endroit qui plaira à ceux qui apprécient de vivre loin du tumulte des stations balnéaires surpeuplées.
Manolis, le propriétaire , vous accueillera avec un grand sourire.
Avec Kalsatis, son adorable fille qui parle très bien français, ils vous guideront dans la visite de leur ancienne maison familiale qu'ils ont parfaitement restaurée et qui a gardé toute son âme crétoise.
L'équipement est moderne et rien ne manque.
Gros coup de coeur pour le petit jardin dans lequel les fleurs, et surtout le jasmin, embaument.
La terrasse est également un endroit où il fait bon s'installer : vue magnifique sur monastère,collines ,champs d'oliviers, sans oublier le chant des cigales.
C'est calme, c'est beau, c'est bon.
Pour les visites et bonnes adresses, laissez vous guider par les bons conseils de Manolis
My husband and I are well traveled, often using VRBO locations to establish a home base from which to explore and enjoy various countries. This home was surely the loveliest and most comfortable that we have experienced. The architecture is dramatic, the décor is beautiful, and the amenities (balconies off all bedrooms, a gorgeous patio, an efficient modern kitchen) combine to make this an extraordinary place to stay.
We brought our daughter and her husband to Crete this trip, and had laid out various routes to explore museums and country sides. Crete is a lovely place, with friendly folk in every location we visited. No matter how far afield we went in a day, we looked forward to the return to this wonderful house, to enjoy relaxing with fine wine on the luxurious patio, and discuss our observations.
The house is located in a small village, but it is in easy distance from main roads and mid-size towns with plenty of fine restaurants, grocers, and bakeries. So it was easy to either have dinner at home or out depending on our mood. But the house certainly makes your mood a pleasant one.
I must also make note of the graciousness of the owner. He takes well deserved pride in his home, and good care of his visitors.
This is a lovely and comfortable villa. It is well equipped with beautiful outdoor spaces as well. Evi and Manolis were excellent and caring hosts who were most helpful in all things. The location is in a small village that is very convenient for all sightseeing without any of the touristic rush of people. The only two things I consel are 1. you will need a car and 2. follow Manolis' restaurant recommendations each of which served delicious and interesting food.
Beautifully restored villa with all the amenities including a great outdoor patio and dining area. The views of the surrounding area are amazing from the balconies. House is large and very clean, and includes all the kitchen basics including various spices, oil, etc. We enjoyed many dinners on the patio surrounded by the well kept gardens.
"We had a wonderful and warm stay in a nicely decorated stone-built house,owned by Evi and Manolis.They suggested day trips to places unspoilt by tourism and made our holiday in Crete a life time experience.
We highly recoment it!!!"
"We had a wonderful stay in the Villa Fabrica, the old olives press.
