The Piskopiano Village Apartments are a fantastic base in the village of Piskopiano - positioned well and close by to Hersonissos, Koutouloufari and Old Hersonissos. The apartments are spotlessly clean and modern, especially compared to other Greek apartments within the same budget - our family are very well traveled around the Greek islands. There are x2 pools - one a more relaxed one aimed at adults only (it's very deep in this pool so not great for the kids). The second pool is served by a lovely bar and cafe bar and Maria runs this efficiently; with everything cooked fresh in front of you; everything we ate here was good too. Maria herself is super friendly - she is the star of this accommodation for sure. The main bar, on the street is also a nice, relaxed and classy setting to have a drink pre or post dinner. Mr George, the owner, (Maria's father-in-law) is a lovely man too and when we returned here with our two children, he bought a gift for them, which was a nice gesture. On arrival we were put into a room that really didn't suit our needs, and were moved swiftly and with no complaint at all - in fact the staff helped us to carry our luggage as this included the two sleeping children, which was a nice touch. There is also a swing by the entrance which went down well with the children as well as a park area - although this is by the road/car park. Our single only gripe of this apartment was that half of the guests were feeding the stray cats - some using the bowls within the apartments filled with cat food which is not hygienic at all! Not the apartments' fault but I think this should be discouraged. The area is absolutely gorgeous, very traditional Greek and so picturesque. The three villages are served by a number of restaurants and bars, and we honestly didn't have a bad meal out. We like to eat traditional Greek dishes; but if you prefer to eat English food, that is also readily available. Asposperida was one of our favourite restaurants for small plates and excellent service, and if you try Emmanuel Taverna you absolutely have to try one of their speciality 'meat in the oven' dishes - the aroma hits you in the street as you walk by, and this didn't disappoint. We had a mixture of lamb, pork and chicken and all were great. Restaurants are really reasonably priced in the villages too. Steki did an amazing 12-hour cooked pork with crackling too. If you want something special, then I would suggest trying Gallini restaurant - not only is the decor something special, the food is too, but remember you are in Greece, as the service is slow here. The beaches are much smaller here than in other parts of Crete, but there are hidden gems, such as Scorpio Bar's private beach which is a stunning little beach, with comfortable, cushioned sunbeds (aprox 20 euro for x2 and an umbrella and with waiter service all day for drinks/snacks if you wish. If you have children - Star Beach is a must-visit place for water fun. We visited Stalis too for a change of scene, and it was a lovely place, a much bigger strip and very commercial/touristy but with a gorgeous beach. Our children love a beach day but there is also an aquarium and a zoo in Hersonissos and we also visited the Astra Apartments Crazy Golf several times during our stay which is very reasonable and in Hersonnisos there is a lovely restaurant, called No Name, which serves sensational pizzas as well as Greek dishes, but it has an on-site soft play for the children which was ideal for getting them out of the sun for an hour. All in all we would 100% return to the area and to Piskopiano Village Apartments.…
We enjoyed our stay Piskopiano Village apartments so much that we have booked again for May, Maria George and Julia were very helpful, George taking our cases to the apartment and collecting them when we (unfortunately) had to leave to come home, the apartment blocks are well spaced out although there are quite a few steps to climb to get to the road, after a couple of days they got easier.
Beautiful village and these apartments are lovely, the staff were friendly certainly would go back. The village was amazing! The pools and the hotel grounds were well kept and clean. The pool bar served some lovely food too and Maria is very nice.
We just loved this place..very nice location and very very clean! Big, comfortable and spacius rooms. We very much enjoyed the pool as well. The owners and staff really make you feel at home!!! I strongly suggest it!!
