Fell in love with this place from day one and decided to stay 3 weeks. Yanni our host treated us like family. Beautiful sparkling pool and private gardens, rooms serviced every 3 days, very quiet and the most spectacular views! Located very high on hill above beach but definitely worth the walk if you go to Voulismo beach about 200... More

We had 2 bedroomed apartment which was ideal for 2 adults & 2 kids. Bedrooms were spacious, living area ideal with superb views from large balcony. North facing so no morning sunshine but we still had breakfast outside in the warmth. The swimming pool is excellent: set in a beautiful garden with plenty of sunloungers and space and wonderful views.... More

We are just back after two amazing weeks in Istron. We hadn't been back for eight years. Still as magical as ever. Delighted that we chose to stay at the Kounenos apartments. Having stayed at lots of different places in Istron, this was the best by far. Arrived at night, key in the door for us and lovely clean apartment.... More

The Kounenos apartments are a small group of studios, 2 bed apts and small maisonettes up a steep rough track on a bend of the main coastal highway at Istro. It is about 600 metres to a Blue Flag beach, lovely headland, and a short drive to Gournia, a Minoan town. Ag.Nik is visible the other side of the bay,... More

But for me it was all about the view, it is absolutley breathtaking from all apartments.Waking up to that everyday was fantastic. There is a... More
