Fabulous Crete hospitality

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house done with a lot of care and attention. Everything brand new and done to a high standard. Tastefully decorated, good quality bed linen and towels. Comfortable beds. Big comfy sofas with more than enough space for four. Reliable wifi. Lovely pool. Water bit chilly in April but the kids still took the plunge and had heaps of fun. Garden areas very well done - lovely paved areas, surrounded by various trees including olives, orange, lemon. Lovely grape vines which must provide a welcome shady area in the hotter months. Garden lovely for relaxing in. April weather lovely - sunshine and not too hot for lengthy walks. Easy to find - the first house as you come into the village. Slightly elevated above the road so feels very private. Only very little traffic along the road anyway and you really don't notice it. A mobile veg /fruit man drives through in the morning selling locally grown food. Beautiful area - stunning landscape. Fabulous rocky mountains, dramatic gorges, pretty coast. Suprisingly green at this time of year too. Lots and lots of spring flowers. Vaggelis couldn't be a more charming and welcoming host. He made us feel so at home. Fruit, wine and chilled beers on arrival. Delicious homemade orange cake midweek and home produced olive oil as gift to take home. Very interesting to chat to him a couple of times and he speaks great English. A truly lovely man. Great recommendation from him for local taverna - Virgin Mary - go down to the lovely local beach and it's less than a mile along the coast. Fabulous food - even our unadventurous vegetarian daughters loved it. Such friendly people. And great value too. Our recommendations of lovely walks - cicular walk from the Venetian bridge to Preveli beach; up the Kallikratis gorge, cut across following the red paint to Asfendos and down the Asfendou gorge. Go to Agios Georgios cemetery church at Mourne to see beautiful frescoes. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house and area. Roads generally pretty decent too. Our first visit to Crete and we have rated it our favourite Mediterranean island of the many we have visited. Very beautiful and everywhere we went the people were very welcoming and friendly. Thank you Vaggelis for a super week in your lovely house.
