The only problem we had with the property was that the pool was to deep which was a shame because we were unable to use it also don't feel it would be safe for young children. Gouves its self was very disappointing lots of derelict buildings and not a very good selection of restaurants thank goodness for Spiros in Gouves village lovely people and delicious meals.
We enjoyed our holiday but the kindness of Manolis made it extra special. Nothing was too much trouble. Two months after we had booked our flights Thomas Cook changed our outward and inward departure times by 9 hours and 15 minutes. We arrived at the airport at 9:55 pm and at the apartment at about 11:00pm in a taxi booked for us by Manolis who was waiting to greet us when we arrived. Our return flight did not leave until 10:55pm but once again he looked after us until we left for the airport. We visited Knossos during our stay and the Archaelogical Museum in Heraklion, as well as enjoying some trips by local bus, Heraklion Tour Bus, 'Funtrain' etc. We also enjoyed the Greek food at the local tavernas.
