The apartment is so nice, very well equipped and clean with a very beautiful and big terrace where we took all our meals. It was relaxing and the view absolutely stunning!The beaches and kanyons are not far away. Many thanks again to Giannis and to his wife for the warm welcome.

Beautiful, traditional villa with incredible views
We stayed at Anatoli Traditional Villas for one week in August. Giannis and Kyriaki were fantastic hosts and very lovely, genuine, helpful people. The villa was very clean upon arrival, and Kyriaki was available to text at any point if we required something. The location is great, amazing views of Ierapetra and the coast and so peaceful and quiet, the perfect get away break. On the final evening Giannis and Kyriaki invited us over to their home and they cooked some beautiful traditional Greek food and we shared some homemade Raki, this was a lovely touch for us and we loved getting to know them on a more personal basis. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone looking to visit Crete, and we will most defintely be back.
