We received a wonderful welcome from Elia and her family, and they continued to be more than hospitable throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble. The property is in a great spot for exploring lots of Crete - our first visit to this beautiful island. A perfect base and easy to while away a few hours or days either in the pool or in the shade of the many olive and citrus trees. We would highly recommend this property for families (our children are 11 and 12 and they loved it).
