A small complex, located right by the sea, 15 km to the west of of Hania. The place is quite secluded and in fact was quite hard to find as there are no signs pointing to it on the main road. Parking is very easy. Our appartment was large, with a big kitchen and a nice bedroom. Air conditioning was... More

We have enjoyed this hotel and the holiday place a lot. We had a nice room with an amassing view of the sea from the balcony (thanks to Alexandros), very kind staff and tasty dinners prepared by Barbara.

Different types of suites. 50 m from the see with nice pool even for children. Two high performing women presents traditional food, if you like to stay on site (organization and kitchen). Every day fresh what they got on the market. It is possible to wake up with singing birds.

We had carefully selected this Hotel as it was situated directly on the Gerani beach as we wanted to step directly from the room to the beach without having to cross any road. We chose a Seaside Suite which offered a... More
