Kreta im August, abseits von den Touri-hochburgen

  • 5 of 5

Eine schlichte aber bequeme Ferienwohnung in ruhiger Lage. Dank Klima auch in August gut aus zu halten. Die überdachte Terasse lädt zum längeren rumliegen ein. Etwa 200 m entfernt betreibt die Vermieterin eine "Kantina" wobei sie exzellente Kreta-Küche zaubert die man bei einem wunderschönen Sonnenuntergang herrlich genießen kann. Das Dörfchen Sylva liegt etwa 2 km entfernt und hat einige gute Restaurants und Mini-markets. Die Wohnung ist eine gute Ausgangslage um der Süden Kretas zu erkunden. Die Anreise ist einfach (~1 Stunden vom Flughafen Heraklion) und der Empfang herzlich. Wir hatten hier 2 sehr schöne Wochen und können dies uneingeschränkt empfehlen wenn mann die Kombination von Ruhe, Kultur, Landschaft und Kreta-Küche sucht und den Massen-Tourismus entgehen möchte.

Location parfaite et sympathique

  • 5 of 5

Accueil très professionnel de Sylla qui a rénové deux petites maisons de village dans le hameau paisible de Listaros. La maisonnette est très propre (une femme de ménage vient, de plus, changer les draps et les serviettes une fois durant un séjour de 7 jours). Une grande terrasse permet de profiter d'un extérieur plaisant avec vue sur la mer de Libye. La plus grande des maisons possède également une petite cour intérieure arborée d'un magnifique bougainvillier. Un petite chaîne Hifi avec quelques CD de musique grecque est une petite attention supplémentaire.

A recommander pour ceux qui aiment être à la campagne dans un village qui est en train de renaître...des maisons abandonnées sont petit à petit retapées. Pas de commerces dans le village mais Sivas à 2 km possède une boucherie excellente, deux épiceries et de nombreux restaurants. De magnifiques plages à proximité, des sites archéologiques et des chemins de montagnes à parcourir offrent de nombreuses possibilités dans la région très proche.
