We spent two weeks at this lovely place during April and enjoyed every minute of it.
The apartment (Lydia) was spacious,comfortable and well equipped.It was beautifully clean and decorated in a traditional style.
My children took advantage of the pool and enjoyed it very much.
The village setting is quiet and pretty,and the surrounding country views are wonderful.Good country for walking and I believe there is also a cycle route.
Kalives is the nearest beach, about 10 minutes away by car and the village has all the usual amenities.From a supermarket to internet cafes.Other beaches are only a little further.
It is a good base to explore the western end of the island.Chania is about 30 mins away and well worth a visit.We also drove into the mountains to visit St Sophia cave and came back along the west coast.Driving on the mountain roads can be a challenge but the countryside is spectacular and well worth the effort.
If you like ruins/history,Aptera is interesting and not far.It also has stunning views of the mountains.
The hostess,Vassos,goes out of her way to make visitors feel welcome.Nothing is too much trouble and she will try to provide any thing you require.More
