“Wonderful, relaxing, comfortable villa in lovely traditional village”
Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

I loved everything about this villa. The location is perfectly peaceful. There are several large, comfortable, quiet rooms and multiple balconies overlooking the sea. The villa has everything you need for a longer stay (e.g., laundry machine, dryer, full kitchen).

The hosts are wonderful. Kyriaki greeted us with traditional foods and gave us lots of good information about the surrounding area. She and Ioannis also invited us to a meal on the weekend, where they fed us a delicious meal and raki made by Ioannis' father. (Kyriaki mentioned that she might one day offer cooking courses --if she does, I'm coming back right away to learn from her! Her food is amazing.) Kyriaki and Ioannis have bought some empty lots and rebuilt the villas in the traditional Cretan way, so the villa is a comfortable way to experience authentic Cretan living.

The location is the traditional village of Anatoli. It's a lovely small, quiet village, so maybe not the right place for someone looking for a hopping night life. However, the location is perfect for hiking, biking, and relaxation. There are several trailheads within a few minutes' walk from the villa, and the hiking offers stunning views. The town has a great traverna and some of the friendliest people you'd care to meet. The sea (and the larger town of Ierapetra) is about 15 minutes away by car. I think there is also a bus, and taxis are easy to find.

I will find a way to come back here as soon as possible.

Very nice hotel at a good location. The place is elegantly decorated and the rooms are great, especially the shower. We received driving instructions from Kyriaki before our arrival. Kyriaki was a wonderful hostess, from the moment that she began guiding us into her little hide-away, delaying her day to make sure that we could get ins soon as we arrived. She was always willing to offer assistance helping us navigate the local countryside.She was taking care of us was one of the nicest persons I have met - she really cared about our stay, she gave us lot of recommendations. It has been some time from our stay and still we remember how exeptinal it was. Thank you for everything!
