Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time staying in your lovely villa in Crete. It is such a great place to stay and we especially appreciated the welcome pack as we arrived late, tired and hungry, and we were so grateful for food and drink - thank you!

Car: recommended

Plaka is one of the loveliest traditional villages in the Apokoronas area of Crete and is surrounded with village houses all growing olives, almonds, apples, lemons, oranges, as well as a wealth of colour in the hibiscus, bouganvillea and oleander. From springtime there is the pungent smell of the mountain herbs. Plaka has a supermarket, 3 traditional Cretan tavernas with wonderful food and a cafeneon.

Almyrida - our local Blue Flag beach is literally a 5 minutes drive away where there are watersports and a safe golden sandy beach. There is a supermarket, taxi rank, car and bike hire, faclities to exchange foreign currency, internet cafe, postbox. Kokkino Chorio - 5 minute drive further up the mountain famous for the filming of the Anthony Quinn film 'Zorba the Greek' and if you sit in the cafeneon long enough a local will engage you in conversation about the part he had in it!! Kalives - the next beach is a lovely safe beach, with about 25 tavernas, 3 banks, internet cafe.
