A wonderful, relaxing holiday in a lovely apartment, in a great location, with generous hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday in this lovely apartment lived up to our best expectations. Highlights include:

Instructions for finding the place were clear and led us perfectly, even in the dark

The apartment was beautifully clean and comprehensively equipped. All appliances were of high quality

The location in perfect for a quiet holiday but well placed for exploring the west of the island with its beautiful scenery and excellent beaches. The village has an excellent taverna 150 meters away and Kissamos town is less than 10 minutes drive away. It has a good range of shops and even a supermarket. There are also tour companies in the town who organise visits to island beauty spots.

However, the ultimate highlight of our visit was the welcome and generosity of John and Maria the parents of George and our hosts for the week. Arriving quite late in the evening (about 9.30 pm) we were greeted by John who was awaiting our arrival. The apartment fridge and cupboards were well stocked with enough basics for our immediate needs so we could immediately relax. From then on John visited us frequently to provide any help or advice we might need and to shower us with generous gifts of local produce. Though only staying for a week Maria ensured that the apartment was cleaned and linen renewed wonder the apartment seemed spotless.

We would recommend this accommodation without any reservation!!

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!
