                                                          Beautiful Villa in the Cretan Countryside

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          This little villa is perfect for those who prefer a quiet, private getaway over a typical crowded resort holiday. You have the opportunity to experience life as a Cretan would, in the idyllic countryside. As you sit on the patio sipping a glass of wine or a raki, you can take in the view of the beautiful White Mountains, while the bells of grazing goats sound in the distance, and roosters and chickens wander onto the deck. Flanked by orange, lemon trees and a mulberry tree, fresh fruit is available for the picking- (and it's delicious!) The outside area, the deck and the view are the main attraction, in my opinion. Inside, the house is small but comfortable. We were there in June, and though the weather was hot, the house stayed quite cool; (there were fans available, but we didn't even need to use them). The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking, especially in comparison to other, similar places I've rented. When we first arrived, the house seemed slightly musty, but after airing it out a little while, that damp feeling went away- (they had gotten a lot of rain right before we came). Sheets and towels were supplied by the owner, and halfway into our stay, a maid came to clean the cottage and change the sheets and towels. The property is in the village of Aptera, which boasts some very interesting archeological sites. In the main part of town (within walking distance) there are several tavernas (restaurants), that serve very good food, and seem to be open most of the time. Although Aptera is a small village, it is not too far from the city of Chania. In addition, there is a wonderful beach in the next village over, which is very secluded and quite private. I highly recommend this place for people who don't want the typical resort holiday, who like to "get away from it all", who like to be around wildlife and beautiful scenery. It is probably necessary to have a car though at this place. Writing this review has made me very sad. The holiday was so nice, it just flew by. I kind of wish I were still there......

                                                          Merci à Philippas et Mania pour cette très jolie location.(Quelle rénovation! jetez un oeil sur l'avant après dans l'album photos) Arrivée tardive, Philippas avait cependant tout prévu pour notre petit déjeuner du lendemain avec en plus une bouteille de bienvenue.La maison est très bien équipée,il ne manque vraiment rien. Le village offre un mini market avec des produits locaux, une taverne, et un kafenion.Bref 4 ième escapade en Crète et toujours le même enchantement.
