About the property

breakfast included, next to the sea, near the port, best car rental deals

Just moments away from Trachilos beach.Perfect for a long stay,especially for travelers who seek to enjoy the famous beaches of western Crete, such as Balos,Falasarna & Elafonisi. Its fireplace makes it also ideal for winter trips.Breakfast supplies included.

The cottage is located next to the port, making travelling to Balos particularly easy. The architectural design of the house is such that air-conditioning is not required (although is provided as of the 1st of April 2015), not even the hottest days of summer. On winter, the fireplace and the additional heaters that are provided make an indeed cozy nest for you to enjoy.

We aim to give you full privacy during your stay, but if you need us we will be happy to help you in any way possible.

The position of our cottage is ideal for daily trips to western Crete (Balos, Gramvousa bay etc). Also it is near the village of Kasteli so you won't be far from supplies and other services you might need. Not 5 minutes by car from the house, there are 2 of the best fish taverns we have visited so far. Of course we should mention the lovely beach that is 2 minutes away on foot from the cottage.More details will be available to you at our guest book as soon as you arrive.

There is public transportation to our cottage. If you are traveling with your car you can safely park it within the house premises.

In case you need to rent a car, let us know; we can secure probably the best deal you can find.

Trying to make you feel at home, I will provide you all the bedding and towels you might need.Breakfast supplies are included. To be more exact, as you arrive you will find a fridge and a cupboard filled with delicious traditional and continental goodies - we are sure that you will love it!

Any & everyone is welcome at our cottage, as long as they are well-mannered. You can also bring your pet, as long as you are responsible for it and anything they do. Smoking is allowed.

Super maison

We felt at home in this cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sofia and Spyros made sure we had everything we needed. They suggested a number of excellent restaurants nearby and helped us with all our questions. The cottage is comfortable and there is enough room for a sizeable group -- the living and dining rooms are spacious and there are 3 bedrooms. The views are gorgeous: the Gramvousa peninsula and sea on one side and olive grove-covered hills on the other. You smell sea, thyme and sage and you hear chickens, sheep and goats at neighboring properties. While great beaches are a short drive away, the beach behind the cottage is fine and we found on the last day we did not use it quite enough. We hope to be back to explore western Crete and enjoy the kindness of its people again.

Wonderful retreat on the lovely island of Crete

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this affordable beach rental. Sofia and Spyros were very pleasant and accommodating hosts. From the rental, we were able to walk to the beach quickly and easily. We enjoyed the house itself too: the overall amount of space, the beach view, the natural light, the wind, and the sun. The French doors, large windows, and wood shutters throughout the house were lovely. Overall, a very nice surprise after a long journey. The closest town, Kissimos, is quite close and offers all the things you want--sights and fresh food being the most important! A bit of drive to the airport (and therefore Knossos), but 100% worth it. Highly recommended. Would return.

Une authentique maison crétoise en bord de mer

  • 5 of 5

La maison offre une superbe vue sur la mer, dont on peut largement profiter de la terrasse. 2 mn à pied suffisent pour rejoindre une belle petite plage. En voiture, le port est tout proche ( excellent restaurant) et la ville de Kissamos également. ( boire un café frappé sur les terrasses de cette ville en front de mer ! )

C'est une location idéale pour découvrir l'ouest de la Crête, les gorges de Samaria, toute la baie de Kissamos. Nous avons adoré la plage de Balos, à rejoindre par une piste puis petite marche.

Sofia et Spyros sont de vrais crétois, très serviables et gentils. La maison est simple mais très bien équipée, très fonctionnelle pour profiter de son environnement naturel.

Nous le recommandons à tous ceux qui veulent découvrir la Crête de l'ouest.

A confortable house near the beach

  • 5 of 5

The old but confortable house is exactely as the pictures. It is situate in a very quiet place, 5 mn walking from a small but sandy beach and very close to the port to go to Balos lagoon. You can have the meal or a rest on the "terrasse" looking the sea. Sofia and Spyros, the owners, are very friendly and helpful. They want everything is welldone ok and can help you to rent a car. From there, you can easely go to the more beautiful western beaches (Balos, Fallasarna or Elafonisi). An other good point, the breafast is included. Unfortunately, we stayed only 3 nights.

We had some marvellous days in a lovely place.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage itself was perfect: cosy, clean, well mantained... We felt at home!

The surroindings are spectacular. You can easily reach beautifull beaches, small villages...

People around are very kind and it's worth to know some of them.

Not very far away you can find a lot of supermarkets, restaurants,taverns and so.

The owner gave us an excellent service and took care of us all the time.

Definitly I will recomend the property to my friends.
