Erato Apartment To Rent By The Sea In Crete Island, Greece

Paradise on earth, fell in love straight away!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I arrived at night so we were surprised by the beauty of the beach and the sea when we awoke in the morning. The sea was so much closer than we thought at to wake up to that every morning watching the sunrise while sitting on the balcony was like a dream. The owners are unbelievably friendly and welcoming making our stay that much more comfortable and amazing. We were greeted on arrival by Mr Xanthoudakis who provided us with some raki and wine and with some grapes and food in the fridge, even though we had just taken a rushed detour to a local shop to make sure we had everything! The apartment is a 10 mins drive away from Kissamos where there are plenty of markets and cafés, along with shops. Apartment was cleaned roughly every 3 days by Mrs Xanthoudakis and her group of cleaners who do an absolutely fantastic job and even left us anow amazing homemade berry pie one time! We will definitely have this apartment for our annual getaway holiday for the foreseeable future!

Nurtures your soul

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second vacation at Niriides, the property of the Xanthoudakis family in Nopigia, Crete. We first were there in 2014, and returning in June 2016, I recalled Thomas Wolfe's prediction that "you can't go home again." Well in this instance he was wrong!

The three apartments are housed in a marvelous building facing a virtually private pebble beach in the tiny village of Nopigia. The wonderful Xanthoudakis family has created an immaculate, perfectly provisioned vacation apartment in each instance, with private balconies facing the sea. The kindness and generosity of these people would be hard to exaggerate.

Nopigia is adjacent to the sweet town of Kissimos where you can buy your freshly caught fish in the morning, have a coffee under sheltering awnings in the square, go to the beach at Falasarna in the afternoon, and then cook your fish in the apartment's convection oven for dinner! Or, go to one of the two great Tavernas in little Nopigia and indulge!

After you've seen Knossos, and the Archeology Museum in Heracleon, and visited some of the marvelous ruins at Phaestos, Sitia, and Malia, I recommend Nopigia with its access to Falasarna, Paleochora, and Elephanisi as a one or two week restoration for body and soul.

Es war ein sehr schöner Urlaub. Die Aussicht vom Balkon war wunderschön! Leider hatten wir nicht immer gutes Wetter, aber die Umgebung hat uns für die manchmal ausbleibende Sonne entschädigt! Die Vermieter waren alle sehr nett, sehr familiär und sehr zuvorkommend! Alles in allem, ein rundum gelungener Urlaub!

Kretische Gastfreundschaft pur in geräumigem Appartement direkt am Meer

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub in einem geräumigen Appartement mit zwei Balkonen und unverstelltem Blick auf den Golf von Kissamos. Die Ausstattung war hervorragend, wie wir sie bisher in Griechenland noch nicht erlebt haben. Das Haus liegt ruhig am Ende einer Sackgasse, hat einen großen Garten mit Liegen, Kinderspielgerät und Grillplatz und das ganze direkt am Kiesstrand. Das herausragende an diesem Haus ist jedoch die Gastfreundschaft der aufmerksamen Vermieter, die den Kühlschrank bei Ankunft gefüllt hatten und sogar während des gesamten Aufenthaltes immer wieder Raki und Olivenöl auffüllten, regelmäßig sehr gründlich reinigten incl. Handtuchwechsels und uns mit kulinarischen Aufmerksamkeiten überraschten. Der Kontakt war herzlich und unkompliziert! Fußläufig ist auch in der Nachsaison noch eine nette Fischtaverne zu erreichen, ein Auto ist jedoch ratsam. Von Nopigia aus lässt sich dann prima die West- bzw. Südwestküste in Tagestouren erkunden und das nahegelegene Kissamos ist eine wunderbare griechische Kleinstadt, in der es alles gibt, aber wohin sich nur wenige Touristen verirren. Das Haus hat 3 Appartements, so dass man auch zu mehreren Paaren bzw. Familien gut dort wohnen kann.

Absolute Empfehlung für autarken Urlaub ohne Rummel!
