“Fantastic place”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

Balsamico is a beautiful place and it is just a few minutes walk to the central square of the village.
Maria and Michalis (the hosts) did an excellent job in the exterior and interior design to make the guests feel like in a traditional Cretan home. And they are both absolutely great hosts!
Our room was a very nice studio with kitchen corner and separate bath room.
The kitchen was a bit sparsely equipped (not optimal if you want to do mostly self-catering) but it was nice and clean.
We spent here one week between Christmas and New Year. During this off-season we highly recommend to book a rental car because otherwise you cannot get anywhere on the island.
