  • 5 of 5

"We had a perfect time. The accomodation was perfect for us, and we enjoyed the possibility to try out many of the local restaurants in walking distance, and the fresh bread locally in the morning. We used the rental as a base to travel to lots of other places. If you only wanted to go to the beach it would be great, but we enjoyed visiting other places. Only my son was disappointed not to have major amenities at the local beach , but we found what they wanted hear Ierapetra and it is not far to get to the north coast which is more tourist based. We liked the fact that this area is not so tourist focused. It was quieter and the costs very reasonable."

  • 3 of 5

Semaine très venteuse, nous n'avons jamais pu nous installer sur la terrasse car le vent soufflait trop fort tous les jours. Vue un peu décevante (une grosse poubelle en face toujours pleine) juste devant la mer très belle. la propriétaire reste très discrète, son accueil a été cordial. Le mobilier et l'équipement seraient à rafraîchir car c'est un peu vieillot, le frigo est trop petit, l'agencement de la cuisine rend la préparation des repas un peu difficile. La plage à proximité est appréciable mais avec de jeunes enfants, celle de sable à 10 minutes à pieds est plus agréable même s'il faut payer pour les transats. Beaucoup d'excursions à faire pour découvrir l'est de la Crète, belle région. Seul le vent omniprésent et très fort nous a un peu terni le séjour.

  • 4 of 5

"3 semaines passées en été 2011 dans cet appartement magnifiquement situé en face de la mer. Plage de tout petit cailloux juste en face et de sable fin idéale pour les enfants ( peu profonde) à 5mn à pied. Route très peu passante en bas de la maison. Appartement agréable avec une belle vue, l''equipement de la cuisine est un peu restreint si l''on souhaite cuisiner. Propriétaires très chaleureux et acueillants, situés juste à coté."

"Location conforme au descriptif et aux photos. Plage de sable au bout de la promenade aménagée le long de la côte. Propriétaire charmante et arrangeante (nous avons eu la visite d''un ami et elle nous a fourni les draps et serviettes sans aucun problème)tout en restant discrète. Séjour très agréable et d''où nous avons pu visiter la région Est. Nombreuses tavernes à proximité."
