Clean, quiet, and friendly stay in Spili. Our room was immaculate, secure, airy with balcony, well maintained, and with screens.
We were welcomed by Heracles and his kind assistant (she gave us tour of the garden). Both conveyed hospitality. Heracles provided a map that he put together himself for a several mile hike in the hills up from town. It was pleasant on the trails... walking on the roads somewhat less so.
Spili town was nice. We walked up to and into the church on the west end of town, then to the lion fountain at center of town, and later had a good dinner and wine at Yianni's.
Tempted to stay longer, we departed after one night to move on to the beaches south and west ... as we were driving westward (having started from Heraklion) across Crete.
If there had been detailed some more challenging/longer hikes on trails to peaks, I would have been likely to stay longer.
We had a good stay. Recommended.
