The place was amazing! Quiet,up to Cretan mountains in a small traditional village and with wonderful views to the Libyan sea and to Chrissi island. Our house was clean and comfortable with all the essentials for our holidays. The owners very helpful and hospitable. Chrissi which was our favorite place is known by locals as Gaidouronisi, or Donkey islands! There are daily trips for the island from Ierapetra port- not far from the house.This small island is one of the most important coastal forests of large-fruited junipers in the Mediterranean and this is the reason that it is part of Natura 2000 network of protected areas.Tree trunks bent by the force of the winds blowing in from the Libyan sea, wild artichokes sea daffodils with flowers turned to face the sun and sandy beaches covered in seashells! We will come back!
We did wonder how we were going to find the property but Manolis was true to his word and we were met at the "Friends" Cafe at 1200 midnight and shown to the apartment and given information about how things worked and recommendations of where we might like to visit. The apartment was well appointed (loved the dishwasher!) and the beds comfortable. The apartment is convenient for all the local shops and beaches and has good car parking facilities. The outside space is small and a bit restricted, but you do get a view of the sea which is good. There is some traffic noise during the day but we were mostly out and about so it wasn't too bad. The bottle of Raki in the fridge was a surprise and only discovered towards the end of the holiday as we thought it was a bottle of water! The honey and cake we had been left all went down very well too. A good holiday!
