Séjour très agréable dans la petite maison, levé de soleil sur la terrasse, lit super confortable, environnement calme et piscine top.
ce séjour que du bonheur.
L'appartamento é molto carino e accogliente, proprio come viene descritto. Thera si è dimostrata una persona sempre molto disponibile e alla mano. Unico lato negativo é che durante i nostri 15 giorni di soggiorno, il wifi non ha mai pienamente funzionato, in camera da letto non prendeva e in tutto il resto dell'appartamento i dispositivi rilevavano la rete ma nella maggior parte dei casi non riuscivano a connetersi, utilizzavamo alternativamente 1 ipad 2 Windows phone e un Nintendo Ds.
We were made to feel very welcome and shown around the bungalow despite arriving late at night and a useful welcome pack of groceries were left in the fridge which was wonderful to get us started. The bungalow was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a 2 weeks stay.
The first night we had a bit of disturbance from wild dogs but after that all was good, they are a bit of a problem throughout Crete.
I loved sitting on the verandah with a good book and seeing the locals transport their grape harvest, indeed the locals were very friendly and kept giving us bunches of grapes.
It was a very relaxed place to stay and Thera was an excellent host and very informative about places to visit etc. We managed to explore all of the east of Crete from the bungalow but it was a bit far to do the west so took time out to stay in Chania for a couple of days and take advantage of a trip to the Samaria gorge and Elafonisi.
A very enjoyable stay!
It was a very good welcome by Thera and Terry. The bungalow is realy cute appartement, very clean and you can find all you need for your first breakfast... It's close to heraklion, the house is at 3min from an highway. So it's easy to travel across creta from this place. Thank you, and we hope to go to creta...
Thera and terry were both incredibly welcoming and generous during our stay. We were staying in the beautifully and comfortably done out bungalow near to their home but they made as feel absolutely welcome in their house and the wonderful pool and surrounding area was always accessible. A great alternative to staying in Heraklion itself, being only a 15 minute drive away-would recommend to anyone staying in Crete. The highlight was the bunch of just picked grapes left by one of the friendly neighbours on our terrace every day.
Thera's bungalow was the perfect place for our first time in Crete. It's located 15 minutes away from Iraklio and a few miles away from the highways that will lead you to most main cities of the island (Chania, Rethymnon, Sitia). It's very cosy with every facilities needed to feel at home.
The swimming-pool, located at the main villa just across the street, was highly appreciated after our long days visiting around.
Thera is a really warm person, she welcomed us very kindly, offered to provide us a high chair and a travel cot for our youngest son and has been really helpful when needed.
We have had the most perfect holidays in Crete, we would highly recommand this place for anyone who wants to discover this paradise island.
El anuncio correspondía totalmente a la casa. Un lugar tranquilo y muy agradable. La anfitriona a la altura. Ha cubierto nuestras expectativas. Un lugar no turístico ideal para visitar el Palacio de Knosos, descansar y conocer Creta fuera de zonas turísticas.

About the Host, Thera
Originally from Holland but I also speak English, German and Greek. I love reading, swimming, good food, music and travel.
I have travelled to many other countries so I am well aware what makes a good hostess and pride myself on the service I offer. 100% of the guests I have had so far have loved their stay here. What more can I say?
