“We did not see Dimitri but her mother,sister and father were there and took care of us!! It was perfect. The village is just wonderfull ! The studio has a very special athmosphere we just loved. The little swimming pool is just perfect to relax. There is a little super market just next door. Dimitri’ s mother offered us to deliver a breakfast as they run the café just next door wich can be very convenient! Everything was there to make our stay perfect!”
The apartment is in this house. It is a separate whole apartment suitable for a couple. It is far 1,3 km from Kavros beach, 4 km from Kourna's Lake, 20 km from Rethimno and 44 km from Chania. It has one separate bedroom with double bed, a bathroom, a kitchen-sitting room with a sofa-bed, free parking, a large balcony in front with garden view and a small balcony at the back with olive trees view, air-condition, free wi-fi and an outdoor laundryroom. It has also barbecue and a garden's kiosk.
“Ελενα is one of the hosts with whom we felt most comfortable ever. We had total independence in our apartment that was next to her little house. The house has everything you need for your holidays (washer machine, dryer, barbecue, parking, garden, terrace, kitchen utensils and a large dining room to rest). During the morning horses pass by, you can hear goats and some rooster in the distanc. The memories are great. It is also a passage area to visit the beautiful mountains in front of the house, close to the centre of the village and very close to Lake Kournas, a magical place. We would definitely repeat experience and we are sorry to have had to return to Barcelona already.”
The traditionally Cretan stone house with a breathtaking view consists of 2 residential units on 2 floors. The lower holiday apartment for rent (48 m²) is divided into a bedroom with a double bed, a living room / kitchen with a sofa bed for a third guest, and a bathroom. The large terrace with a beautiful, far-reaching view invites you to start the day comfortably with a breakfast and to end the evening with a glass of wine.
“In this accommodation we spent the second half of the vacation. We decided to live in the mountains after the seashore. Very nice view from the terrace. Breakfast and dinner at a table with a view of the mountains - it is unforgettable! The house is clean and comfortable, everything is at hand in the kitchen, a modern hob, an oven (but we did not use it). It feels like we were at home, not at a party. Maria left a letter with a little instruction and advice in English. It was very helpful. We could easily communicate with Sofia, Maria’s mother and mistress of the house, despite the fact that she spoke German, and we, unfortunately, speak only English. The town itself with a very interesting history, nice and welcoming. I recommend the tavern Lappa Avocado. The hostess doesn’t speak English there either, but that didn’t stop us from eating deliciously and getting a bunch of grapes from their "roof garden". A stone's throw from the tavern there is a supermarket. The nearest beach is Episkopi, about 15 minutes away by car. With strong winds there are big waves and no one bathes. In this case, it is better to go to the south of the island - to the beaches of Frangokastello, Plakias or Preveli. At Preveli, get ready for a long descent down the stone stairs. Well, then to climb it.”
