We have stayed at Natalia's Houses on four separate occasions over the past three years - staying in Lydia and in the smaller Heros. Each time we have been welcomed in true Cretan style and made to feel part of the family, as well as part of the wonderful village. The location is idyllic, just a few minutes drive from the seaside at Kalives and at Almyrida, yet offering a true rural flavour - its not unusual to see Andreas, the shepherd, herding his goats through the narrow village streets every day and the sound of their jangling goatbells is a distinctive sound that just adds to the atmosphere!
The accommodation is spotlessly clean, and thoughtfully equipped, and nothing is too much trouble for Vasso and Andreas, the owners, to do for their guests.
It makes a great base for anyone who wants to do some really good hikes around the area. Vamos and Gavalohori villages are only five minutes by car. And Chania, with its wonderful old harbour area, shops and super tavernas, is less than half an hour drive.
