“Lovely as Usual”

The Artemis apartments in Kalvies are just wonderful, your hosts Yanis & Maria
are 2 of the nicest people you could wish to meet. nothing is to much trouble for them, they like to bring you freshly squeezed orange juice to the pool or cake or even ice creams on this visit.
The apartments are very clean and have all you need for self catering holiday. set on a hill just out of the village, it is a bit of a stroll up the hill in the evenings but it helps after a good meal in any of the taverna's you choose to eat in.
Kalives is a small quite and no night life to speak of, you won't be disappointed if you go.

“Wonderful Artemis Apartments in the north west of beautiful Crete”

We have stayed at the Artemis Apartments in Kalives, Crete each year for over 10 years, and we are expecting to stay there again in 2013. Nestled overlooking Souda Bay and amongst the olive trees, you couldn't wish for anything more peaceful and relaxing. With clean and spacious apartments, a refreshing swimming pool and beautiful gardens ... who could wish for anything more.

“An idyllic tonic for the soul”

Artemis is beautifully secluded. There is a cool, inviting turquoise pool with a glorious view of the bay from it's hilltop location, with it's calm, never ending sapphire sea and a pure, clear cornflower sky with it's blazing sun above.The gardens are spectacular - bright cerise bougainvillea cascade along the walls amongst an array of colourful flowers. At night the view changes to that of a never ending mass of beautiful stars and romantic moon, with the occasional cruise ship slowly floating out of the bay, the heady scent of flowers infusing the air .The owners and staff are both kind and courteous - it is always such a pleasure to see them every year. Onsite security and car parking are good and the local shop, village and tavernas are a short walk away. It is truly a tonic for my soul and every year when we visit, it feels like coming home rather than being away.

We have been going to Artemis Apartments in Kalives for four years now, once you have been you will go back time and time again. Peaceful setting amongst the olive groves. They are family run apartments and the owners Yannis and Marie will do anything to make you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble for them. Kalives is a very unspoilt village and everyone is very friendly. The beaches are wonderful. I would recommend a car, as Artemis is at the top of a very steep hill. A truly wonderful place.

After 14 visits we still love the outlook. the pool, gardens, the roomy and comfortable apartments and the peace and quiet and the warm reception and care of Ioannis and Maria
who are always welcoming and helpful. The archaeological dig at nearby Aptera is well worth a visit.
