This is a comfortable little house 25 minutes from Iraklion, near to major archaeological sites, southern beaches and gorge walks. Susanne and Manolis are wonderful hosts who went out of their way to ensure a good start to our stay.
Siva's central position (it used to be on the main road south till the new road was built) means it's straightforward to drive either north to Knossos, etc, or south to the coast. Nice local tavernas, a short drive away. Dafnes a mile away has an ATM. We walked up the wonderful Rouvas Gorge, about 4.5 hours up and back.
The house is well laid out with a quiet courtyard. Beautiful walks through olive groves up the lane across from the house, just keep walking to get views high above the village. Very nice winery just up the street. Good wifi signal.
We had a lovely relaxing week in this comfortable and very Cretan house. Thanks to you both, Suzanne and Manolis.
