We had a lovely view from our balcony of the village/Hersonisos & sea. Our bed was up some narrow steep steps from our living & kitchen & bathroom area. All was clean & was cleaned on our 4th day of our week. You have still to put toilet paper in a little bin provided. The driades is up a steep... More

Just returned from Crete after a ten day stay. Yes, these apartments are at the top of a steep hill (as per their web site) and yes, if travelling with TC, you are dropped off at the end of the road, some 400m away. This info is on Trip Advisor, but I do fully appreciate that not everyone researches as... More

We stopped here in September having booked with Thomas Cook. The coach drops you at least 300 metres away from the apartment due to a dispute between them and the tour operator. Not good when you don't know where you are going and have luggage to carry. Our apartment was up steep uneven steps that my partner tripped up on... More

Returned from Driades Apartments on Wednesday 16th September after spending a week in Room 205 (we moved in after murphy268 moved out apparently). Fully agree about the view from this room, it is breath taking. The bedroom can be quite confined at times when just the two of you are walking around in there, with one having to step back... More

We stayed here for 7 days in September 2015. The owners George and Elaina were very helpful, kind and friendly. They also own the bar Antidote at the foot of the hill and drive you back to the apartments on their moped when you've had enough. The apartment was very clean and tidy, service was excellent and most importantly they... More

We stayed in Piskopiano last year and enjoyed it so much we decided to come again. This was our first stay at the Driades apartments. We asked... More

Well I read the reviews... But never really got the full impact of just how steep those hills are!! However, a small price to pay & one we'd pay again in a heartbeat. This place is magic. The views are second to none, the staff are beyond attentive & the whole location sets you in great stead for one of... More
