The location was wonderful, close to marvelous beaches and far from the bustle of the crowds. Be prepared for the walk to the beach as the return trip is uphill but absolutely worth it. The view from the apartment especially in the early morning and at sunset is fantastic. The apartment was spotlessly clean, the hosts gracious and always available.We... More

This is beautiful place and a good base from which to explore the northern coast of the island . Perched on the side of a hill overlooking Lygaria Bay the views are spectacular. The owners are lovely gentle people and make you feel very welcome. The whole facility is really well kept and spotlessly clean. If you are a person... More

We visited Crete in the last week of September 2014 and stayed at these lovely apartments before going on to Athens. The couple who own the apartments were really friendly and made us very welcome. The rooms we had were clean and nicely decorated. Loved the way the towels were made into the shape of swans! The apartments have a... More

We chose here for our 9 day stay in Crete because of the position and wonderful views. We were not disappointed. But the real drawcard here we now know is the hosts. Truly likeable genuine helpful and skilled . Lisa and Vasilli clearly love their life at Erivolos and want to share that with visitors. A rare quality indeed. The... More

Have just returned from 10 days at Erivolos (19 - 29 July). The apartment was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and the owner Lisa's hospitality was second to none. The pool is great and the food on offer from Lisa is delicious. Lygaria itself is small but there are a number of good tavernas and a supermarket where the basics... More

We stayed at the Erivolos Apartments in Lygaria on the 9th July for 4 nights. The apartments are first class. Very clean, great layout with spectacular views over the bay. The beach is a 5min walk down the hill and is quieter than the beach in the next bay Agia Pelagia. The hill is quite steep but we found the... More

Erivolos looks exactly like the photographs on its website. No special filters, no artfully placed plants, no 'dressing-up' to make it appear better than it it really is. It looks beautiful in the pictures - and it is in reality. Our Erivolos experience started with our email inquiry, which was promptly dealt with. The booking was easy and my subsequent... More

I have not yet visited Eriviolas. We are booked to stay there in October 2014. But I just have to say (i) that their website is one of the best that I have seen for the island; (ii) the responses to my preliminary enquiries have been courteous, prompt and have each fully answered my questions; I am adding information to...
