"Christos Place" these are our 6 Holiday homes in Anidri - a small paradise in the middle of a large olive grove. Of ours, with love and care furnished cottages, you can enjoy the tranquility and breathtaking views of Use Libyan Sea, protected by the Cretan mountains in the background. All six houses are arranged in terraces and spaced well apart. Each house has sea views, free internet access, a sun terrace with loungers and table under the shade of olive trees, a garden with outdoor shower - planted with typical Greek herbs and flowers. The houses have underfloor heating and can be rented in the winter. It is just 10 minutes by car to the sea. You can walk away from the house for. Example down to the sea through the beautiful Anidri Gorge. Just a few hundred meters below, we conduct our traditional Cretan taverna 'Sto scolio', where you can sit comfortably under the 300-year-old olive tree. You can go shopping and strolling one in the next town Paleochora (5km). We organize for them also excursions with our boat to beaches and coves in the area.
Christos’ wonderful cottages are located on a hillside above the village of Anidri in what has got be one of the most peaceful corners of Crete. The 4 cottages are nestled in a terraced olive grove with individual private gated gardens that are arranged so as not to overlook each other. First impressions are of a stunning location and view; tasteful and modern property; airy rooms with good size beds; and a good size bathroom. Closer inspection revealed complimentary olive oil and herbs; fresh ground coffee; basket of fruit, sachets of milk and small bottle of raki (the local spirit) in the fridge. Clearly a lot of thought and attention to detail has gone into preparing the properties. Access to the properties is up a gravel road from the village then through electric gates into fenced and well managed grounds. While we didn’t walk down to the village (we had our 2 1/2 year old with us) it should only take 10 to 15 mins, but worth bringing a torch if you intend to walk back after dark.
Christos is a very generous and welcoming host who also runs the excellent Sco Scoli taverna in the village. We ate several times here and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Christos even brought eggs and bread on our first morning!
The gorge walk to Anidri beach was enjoyable if a little long for kids (adults should take about an hour), and the sandy beach at Paleochora was very child friendly and quiet in September. Recommend the boat trip to the amazing Elafonisi – we liked it so much we drove there another 2 times (takes around 1.5 hours on tarmac mountain roads).
Paleochora is pleasant and only moderately touristy, with plenty of places to eat that don't cost the earth. The view of the mountains to the east at sunset was a sight that we didn't tire of.
Thank you Christos for your fantastic hospitality and a memorable holiday. We'd definitely come again!
Pure Erholung konnten wir im Ferienhaus Julia geniessen. Alles perfekt: Super Lage mit kleinem Garten mit Ess- und Liegeplatz mit herrlicher Fernsicht aufs Meer. Das Haus war sehr sauber, super eingerichtet, hervorragende Betten: einfach rundum perfekt. Auch das kleine Dorfrestaurant, das von den Vermietern geführt wird, erfüllt auch alle Ansprüche.
Ein reizendes, neues Haus, herrlich gelegen im olivenhain, mit grossartigem blick und wohltuender privatsphäre. Zum entspannen wunderbar
Der gastgeber kümmert sich reizend um seine gäste und in der dorttaverne, der adaptierten alten volkschule isst man hervorragend.
Viele schöne, unaufgeregte und belassene strände ohne grosses remmidemmi. Die bergige umgebung ist wirkl pittoresk.
Hätte nicht angenehmer und unaufgeregter sein können!
