We spent two very relaxing weeks in early June, and, believe it or not, not much had changed at these apartments since we visited about 30 years ago. I expected vast tourist development but after looking on Google Earth was able to confirm that these apartments had been unaffected. Of course the village, at a distance of maybe half a... More

Beautiful welcoming family with a beautiful hotel that can't be faulted. The pool is one of the nicest pools I've ever been in. Very relaxing place very close to the hustle and bustle if that's more your thing. Been many times and will continue to go.

The Venus Apartments are owned and managed by the Peraki family. As a family they are welcoming, helpful and cheerful. The apartments are basic, but cleaned daily, fresh bed linen and towels and kitchenette. The air conditioning is a boon in the summer. There are some rooms close to the swimming pool, and others to the rear of the property.... More

Accommodation is basic, room is old and bit used (for example lamp wiring was broken). Room has climate. Pool was big and clean. Only few visitors during July! Can recommend for budget traveller with car. Restaurant... More

I spent an unforgettable week here in September and can't wait to return. The pool is perfect, the apartments are really lovely, but more importantly, the hosts are wonderful. They are so incredibly welcoming and kind.

My husband and I have stayed at Venus Apartments many times, we love it so much we just have to keep returning. In the last 12 months there has been some redesigning done, the apartments now have tenting over the balconies to keep that strong sun off your heads it all looks very nice and tasteful.

My first stay at the Venus Apartments with the Perakis family. I couldn't fault it, the family made me feel very welcome, the rooms were spotless, lovely breakfasts and the pool area was second to none, very clean and very relaxing.

Just returned from yet another stay at the Venus. The apartments may not be a modern as others, they are clean and comfortable. The swimming pool remains well maintained with plenty of sun loungers and chairs. Overall,once again, I must highly recommend these apartments for independent travellers who enjoy being welcomed into the Cretan way of life.
