Das ist zwar keine klassische Privat-Wohnung, sondern ein Appartment-Haus, liegt aber sehr schön in Meer-Nähe. Poppy hat uns mit einem tollen Schoko-Kuchen überrascht und ihr Mann netterweise zum Bus gefahren
It was a pleasant stay at Poppy's and Minos ' Place. They were friendly guests and we found the place well located near Heraklion. The equipment of the apartment is ok and small but cheap for 4 personns.
I recommend the place!
Minos, Poppy and their daughter Maria have been very obliged, welcoming and spontaneous hosts to us, Minos even picked us up as we first had a little problem finding the right national road exit in the dark. The apartments are very clean and well equipped and Minos and Poppy are super friendly, were always open for a chat and supplied us with coffee and sweets. Ligaria is a good place to start holidays in Crete as it is located near the airport of Heraklio but outside the more touristic areas. From the apartments it's a 5 minutes' walk to a small and calm beach with quite a few restaurants and a small super-market.
We had a wonderful stay at Minos Appartment. The appartment was just as described in the announce and the beach is very close and very pleasant. Above all, Poppy and Minos are very nice and welcoming. We had nice talks, and they made us taste the local cuisine! Coffee, delicious cake, fresh fruit, raki... Everything was great!
Poppy is an angel, very responsive and helpful. The description is accurate, everything works. The location is great - Lygaria is much calmer than the nearby Agia Pelagia with all of its tourist traps. Yet, Lygaria has everything: a fantastic beach, several Tavernas and cafes, a mini market and a diving centre. Definitely recommended, and I'll be back for sure myself. Just one thing: Lygaria doesn't have any ATM, so if you don't have a car, get your cash before arriving, or you'll have to walk 45 minutes across the hill to Agia Pelagia (which actually is a nice walk by itself).
Poppy and Minos were excellent hosts, we felt at home... And Ligaria is the perfect spot to stay and visit central Crete.
We arrived late and Poppy was kind and helpful : she showed us a nice studio with two single beds in a backroom after a first living room quite spacious. Very very clean.
Veryquiet also because away from the road.
In the morning we tried to find a café or tavern for a coffee and breakfast on the beach... But impossible!!! Not such offer early in the morning :( we walked 30mn in vain... Because Poppy had said we could find a place to have breakfast...
On the day on our flight back to France it was a bit hard to begin thr day like this...
Minos helped us to get out of the parking place very narrow and hard...
The beds were not that comfy...
For a reasonnable price, the night was ok, and Poppy and Minos are nice.
