Arrival (in our hire car) was smooth and welcoming. There were bikes, which we borrowed to cycle into the village, where we found several supermarkets and a delicious bakery. We were pleasantly surprised to find a welcome pack of fresh fruit, breakfast toasts, jams, butter, water, olive oil and raki - thanks! Our apartment was lovey - very cool, even... More

Hello! Fata Morgana Studios is driven by Papadakis family who are very nice greek family. It is very quite and cozy place surrounded by a fantastic beach reachable by feet which takes 3 minutes. No traffic and stress here, just nature and yourself. The beach is big, sandy and with a few people on it. Rooms are very clean, with... More

This is our 4th visit to Fata Morgana (we discovered them in 2004 driving around Crete after my partner hosted a lecture tour of archeological sites in Greece). We love the warm family atmosphere of the whole operation, its beauty and simplicity. The highlight of this trip was having Giorgios/George meet us at the Heraklion airport and drive us to... More

it felt too big compared to what I was hoping for : more intimacy, more seclusion. All that said, it's quite charming, it's located in an olive grove and there are lots of details in the decoration and layout. The studio itself is perfectly equipped but two things really stood out in a negative way : 1) There was a... More

The apartments have a fantastic location - right above the beach (one has to cross a gravel road and go down the stairs to get down to the beach), all apartments I lived in and visited had one or several balconies and or/terraces with sea view. The apartments are spacious and equipped with everything one needs (kitchen stuff, blanket, hair... More

We spent more than 20 days in Crete and especially at Fata Morgana Studios and apartments. The staying has been wonderful since the place is absoloutely perfect in its organisation, structure and architecture. George and his family answer very quickly and concentrate every effort in order to satisfy each customer's request. 100% satisfied, and we hope to be able to... More

I have just been back to Fata Morgana for a few days' holidays. The hotel is located just before the Frangokastello site. It consists of two storey blocks of appartments built in an olive grove. Just below the hotel lies a superb beach! The place is clean and well looked after, with very friendly staff. E.g. as we were waiting... More

It is located at a magical place with sand dunes right below leading to a shallow water sandy beach. The location is amazing and there is not much else to do but relax. The beach is excellent for small kids since the water is shallow and sandy. Rooms are clean spacious with breathtaking views. There are bikes available with no... More
