Our room had two balconies, one facing the sea, the other facing the mountains, the best of both worlds. George (the son) came... More

We stayed at Lia Sofia for 10 days. The 1 bed apartment was very spacious for 2 people and located 1 min walk away from the beach, but far enough from the beach road, crowds and noise (although Stalida is generally quiet anyway). The cleanliness of the apartment is exemplary - fresh towels every two days, cleaning every other day,... More

Lovely and clean apts,you are always met with a warm welcome by the family that run these apts,nothing is too much for the family to help your holiday run smoothly. They are well situated,just a two minute walk from the beach and the main strip,would recommend these apts to anyone wanting a quiet and hassle free holiday.

Very nice apartments, very helpful and friendly owner (and family). Only 2 minutes from the beach and the crowded Beach Road, but still quite. Busstop to Heraklion Airport 5minutes away. Was a good choice!

These lovely apartments are only a stones throw away from the beach road and all the tavernas and pubs etc but still very quiet. We stayed in an upper end studio which had a massive balcony and was also very spacious inside. There was a double... More

We come here always for the second year. Nice to see familiar faces. Most guests come here every year, and for good reason. As always, there are excellent service, good hearted attitude of the owners, nice conversation, warm sea in two steps with an excellent beach, excellent food at the nearby restaurants. If you want a relaxing holiday (with family... More
