Une semaine de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Très agréable vieille maison, très propre située au coeur du village, avec un petit parking dans un environnement magnifique. La piscine est idéale pour les enfants et les petits matins y ont été délicieux. La propriétaire a la gentillesse de fournir de quoi faire un petit déjeuner plaisant. Sa localisation a quelques kilomètres des plages évite la foule et le bruit et procure le plaisir d'une brise plus fraîche en soirée. Le village est coquet , bien situé pour visiter Chania et à moins de 5 kms de la mer. A noter : une taverne au bout du village avec une jolie terrasse, un accueil charmant et une cuisine bonne et aux assiettes copieuses; on s'y rend à pied à travers les ruelles. Un petit bar sympa à moins de 50 mètres de la maison. La voiture est cependant nécessaire car les commerces (supermarché notamment) se situent en bord de mer. Un tout petit commerce dans le village mais fermé lors de notre séjour.

Efkaristo poli Kostoula :)

La plage est à 3.5 km à pied en parcourant un chemin panoramique et magnifique

A noter un excellent restaurant dans le village, pas très cher

Le gite est bien situé, en tant que point de départ d'excursion

Piscine énorme et gite fonctionnel

un sogno

  • 5 of 5

Molto bello il luogo, gentilissimo e disponibilissimo il personale. Se potessi ritornerei subito e, comunque, per molto tempo lo porterò nel mio cuore.

Più in generale, ho apprezzato molto la disponibilità e la solarità dei cretesi
