The village of Kamilari has about 400 inhabitants and is a 5-minute walk from the bungalow. The village has a well-stocked supermarket with its own butcher's shop, 7 taverns (3 of which also open in the winter) and 5 cafés where Cretan life can be tasted.

Because of its central location, the village is an ideal starting point to discover the south coast of Crete. The beaches (Matala, Kalamaki, etc) and well-known excavations, such as Festos and Kommos, are only a few kilometers away.

In addition, the environment of Kamilari is ideal for walking, for example through one of the various mountain gorges or along the beach of Kalamaki.

The airport and the center of Heraklion are located 67 km away from Kamilari and can be reached within a good hour by car.

Peaceful haven in a beautiful village.

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find this delightful hideaway. Perfectly equipped bungalow with an obviously recently renovated pool area. The owners have worked hard to make this a perfect holiday experience. Good directions, welcome gift just right, and useful WiFi instructions that even I could understand. The location is breathtaking and the local tavernas welcoming. We can see why the owners love it.

Leider etliche Abstriche

  • 2 of 5

Kamilari ist ein ganz toller Urlaubsort,wir mussten allerdings einige Nachteile im Quartier hinnehmen.Das Objekt selber ist bis auf sehr einfaches Mobiliar in Ordnung,sonst fühlten wir uns allerdings arg allein gelassen.Bei der Ankunft war die benannte Kontaktperson nicht erreichbar.Wir fanden die Unterkunft erst mit Hilfe netter Nachbarn.Die Kontaktperson hat sich auf SMS und Telefonmailbox bis jetzt nicht gemeldet.Nebenan befand sich eine Großbaustelle von der im Vorfeld obwohl der Vermieter darum wusste nie die Rede warJeden Tag von sieben Uhr morgens bis acht Uhr Abends Baulärm mit Presslufthämmern grenzt allerdings an Körperverletzung wenn dies sechs von sieben Tagen so geht.Ein Swimmingpool ist dann echt nutzlos zumal man keine Lust hat sich von Dutzenden Bauarbeitern beobachten zu lassen.Richtig ärgerlich würde es allerdings dann als der Vermieter der sich parallel vor Ort befand abreiste,um ohne etwas mitzuteilen für die nächsten zwei Tage. selber noch Handwerker orderte,die direkt unter unserem Ferienhaus einen Waschraum zwölf Stunden pro Tag renovierten.

2 Prachtige huisjes op fantastische locatie

  • 5 of 5

Het huisje met zwembad was zeer netjes verzorgd en was voorzien van alles wat je nodig hebt voor een deugddoende, zorgeloze vakantie. Ook was er leuke attentie voorzien . Zeer rustige locatie en op 5 min wandelafstand van het zeer charmante dorpje kamilari waar je voor alles terecht kunt. De vriendelijkheid van de mensen die je daar ervaart kom je hier nog zelden tegen. Ook de vele mooie rustige stranden zijn trouwens niet veraf. Kortom , we hebben een onvergetelijke, fantastische week vakantie gehad. Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar.

Soggiorno Perfetto!

  • 5 of 5

Soggiorno Perfetto! Disponibilità, cortesia e ottima pulizia.

Fantastica piscina e spazi esterni da cui godere tramonti indimenticabili. Ristoranti, bar e piccolo market raggiungibili a piedi in pochi minuti.

La natura selvaggia e la tranquillità all’ombra di ulivi secolari ci hanno fatto adorare Creta.
