Polite and helpful owner but, cramped and dusty apartment, some power outlets not well fitted in the wall, many power strips that were easily accessible by kids, worn out shower tap and cord, low lightning in the bathroom, couldn't get the tv to work
Smaragda House is a beautifully renovated Cretan stone house that is wonderfully furnished and decorated. It has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay and was spotless. The view from the rooftop patio is incredible and also a good view from the downstairs patio where we enjoyed our meals. There is a very informative booklet in the house that provides detailed information about nearby beaches, sights to see, restaurants and tavernas. The owner was most helpful in answering our questions about the history of the village. We totally loved our stay and the many places to visit and excellent beaches.
A unique place for those who value the opportunity to spend time in peace, tranquility and even isolation from the hustle and bustle of modern life, at the same time not too far from this world and civilization. The essence of the Mediterranean climate and surroundings at the meeting point of the mountains and the sea. A stone house providing a comfortable stay for 2 - 6 guests in the setting of a traditional Greek village, whose history dates back to Byzantium or beyond. Good, fresh, healthy food available. Endless walking or hiking routes among olive groves or wild mountain landscapes. Typical Cretan beaches within 15-20 minutes by car on a good mountain road. I feel sorry to leave...
Away from the touristic routes, Anatoli is a small, calm village, full of history. Unlike most of Cretan villages, Anatoli has preserved its architecture: stone houses, many of which are renovated, small paths and picturesque churches. Pasiphae is a spacious double floored house in the center of the village, renovated with care and love. It can easily accommodate 8 people and it has all the amenities one might need. The main advantage of the house is its terraces, allowing for amazing views towards the sea all day long. The owners have been very helpful and all in all it's been a memorable stay. We'll definitely go back!
Beautiful house even more stunning than on the photos. Great layout, well equipped in an amazing setting. If you like quaint villages and peace : Pasiphae house is for you! You host will make sure that you have a good stay and will advise you on places to see etc. Hence our first visit to Crete was perfect. Thank you Ioanna!
