Fantastic place, great vacations

  • 5 of 5

We spent fantastic two weeks in Pigi. The apartment was big enough for our family of four and in reality was even better than what you can see in the pictures. The swimming pool is really good, it was clean with deck chairs and never crowded. The best thing about having the pool was that everyday we went to a different beach because we didn't have one in the village. This kept us active and we knew that each morning and evening we can swim in the pool. And all the trips were worth having. The owner, Catherine, provided us with a list of best destinations (beaches, monasteries, restaurants, etc) and all her suggestions were spot on. When going to Balos Lagoon take the smaller ship, the big one takes about a thousand people and the smaller one just a fraction of this. The big crowd from the big ship arrives at Balos about 30 minutes before the smaller one departs and the people from the big one have problems with finding space for themselves. Highly recommended, but you need a car.

Owner's Response: good idea to stay 2 weeks, they are so many spots to visit nearby, in the south or west. Even in july or august the place is very quiet and you can enjoy the swimming pool, the owners live in Norway tand prefer to come in april or october

very nice flat

  • 4 of 5

We really appreciated the flat very convenient and big enough to live with comfort

Located not far from the sea, this permits to live quietly and to go to the rush and to the sea in 5 minutes if necessary

The neighbours are nice and quiet, the swimming pool is big.

Tavernas in the arounds are good and cheap, people welcome you like your MAM we appreciated this Mrs Mercier's flat.

We strongly recommend

Très agréable séjour dans un lieu enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

Très bon rapport qualité/prix pour ce logement :

beaucoup d'espace, deux chambres confortables et un très bon contact avec la propriétaire qui nous a donné de très bons conseils pour organiser notre séjour.

L'environnement est agréable et la résidence se trouve à peu de distance de la plage et de la très jolie ville de Rethymnon. Bonne base pour visiter cette partie de la Crête
