Beautiful and peaceful place
The place was cleant several times during one wee. It was very quiet location; you can only hear the voice of the sea and scream of the cock. The place was really suitable for 4 people. The host, Eleanor, was really nice.
Beautiful bay view from the terrace
We like this place very much. Even in high season, this was a nice and quitte place close to the sea with several local tavernas ang good food. There is a wonderfull terace to sit, drink wine and look on the sea and mountains surrounding it.
It is also very convenient base to explore eastern Creta, but you need a car. An offroad is recomeded to reach empty beaches, remote archeological sites and mountains.
However if you like bussy night live and do not like quitte location go somewhere else.
Eleanor is very good host. She is easy going and providing us with all we need.
Thank you Eleanor for very nice vacation stay.

A wonderful memory
We rented this cottage for two weeks a few years ago. We've often thought of coming back for months - may even do it when we retire. Eleanor is a great hostess and the tavernas and other amenities in Mochlos are wonderful, without distracting from the restful atmosphere.
What a view
The house is well located just 5 minutes driving distance to the village and beaches.
It is well equipped to cook.
The view on the sea is really nice.
Eleanor is very kind she even managed to buy fish to a fishermen and brought good local cake with honey and cinnamon. She informed us about things to do near the house her recommendations were perfect. The house was very clean sheet and towels have been changed during our stay.
We recommend the house and thank Eleanor for her nice welcome.
Mochlos is a small fishing village with several taverns and several small shops. Remains of a Bronze age town are visible on the island opposite the town. In the sea near the village, fish tanks dating to the Roman era are visible. During the summer months, archaeologists conduct an excavation on the island, providing more information on the local history, which goes back almost continuously for over 4000 years! Special celebrations are held at Easter and you are welcome to participate. Olives and grapes are harvested in the fall, and then the production of oil and raki, the locally manufactured liquor, begins. Be sure to sample the oil, the raki, and don't forget the local red wine!
Other Activities: Diving is available at a nearby hotel (25 min. away) and golf is available at the new course near Hersonissos (40 min away).
