The villa was beautiful and our host was really helpful and friendly. All the information from Authentic Crete made for a trouble free holiday and our visit from Sandra offered excellent guidance without being intrusive - thank you. The only thing that might have been helpful would have been a short guide to the villa with information about rubbish collection/recycling...

The village itself has a couple of small shops and several tavernas offering delicious locally made food from organic produce. The village belongs to the region of Apokoronas. The nearest beach to the villa is a small, almost private beach, below Kalami. There are several other sandy beaches within a short drive (Kalives 3 kms, Almirida 7 kms etc).
