Pepi studios is in an excellent location right in the heart of Rethmynon old town. It is very quiet of an evening so noise was just not an issue at all. The cafe beneath the studios doesnt open ridiculously early or stay open late so that is not a problem at all. The studios are about a 15min walk from a beautiful beach. (Their is a smaller beach nect to harbour which is only bout 5 min away but there are no sun beds etc). I would highly recommend walking to this beach. Tjhere is a bar on the beach to get drinks, water sports and also a toilet which you dont often find these days.
The rooms themselves are very basic unless you get one of the rooms on the ground floor which look a bit nicer, however seem very dark. Our room suited our requirements which was just a place to sleep really. The self catering facilities are basic. 2 hobs, a few pans etc. You wouldnt be able to cook a huge meal in this place but it was adequated for when we used it. Bathroom very clean and look new. Beds are pretty hard and not the most comfy, but you get used to it and it didnt spoil our holiday,
We are 23/24 and wanted a place where there was an old and new town so that we could have the best of both worlds. But the old town had it all. It was a labryinth of streets with different retaurants, bars and shops and along the sea front their some very trendy bars. The harbour is lovely as well but we tended to go here for drinks and only ate here once for lobster as they put 10 euro on standard food just because of the view.
This is not a cheap place. Gin and lemonade 7.50 euro, Wine ranged from 14- 28 euro. Beer is 3 euro. Average price of meals was 60 euros including drinks. Take everything you need as clothes/towells etc are very expensive. Also in retaurants they will bring you bread but then charge you at the end, We didnt mind this but nights when we didnt want it we just sent it back and it was crossed off the bill. Some absolutely fabulous restaurants. Stay away from the typical tourist ones and go and look down the smaller streets as they often look very small but they open up into beautiful gardens and it is these restaurats where you really taste Cretan cuisine at a more reasonable price. Kleftiko in pastry was one of our favourite dishes, unfortunately I cant remember the name of the place. Also Alana restaurant is very romantic, very attentive staff and the steak was the best i have ever tasted.
This was one of my best holidays ever and Pepi studios really made it with its lovely surroundings (Pool very small but adequate for those days you dont want to go far) and perfect location to other attractions!
TIP: Service is extremely slow in retaurants so dont wait until your starving for food!
