The Chania Prefecture region
Crete enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate as it sits halfway between the Greek mainland and Africa. The south and west coast tend to be hotter than the north and west. The largest of the Greek islands it is both rugged yet very beautiful with high mountains and green valleys. The Island offers great beaches and wonderful gorges with some fantastic walks.
The Rodopos peninsular is very central to western Crete with Chania 30mins, Kastelli 20mins, the fabulous beaches of Elefanisi, Gramvousa and Falasana are all within easy reach. There are wonderful walks without having to stray far from the peninsular. The flora and fauna is amazing and abounds with wild herbs and greens. Birds from raptors, egrets, hoopoes to tiny finches and songbirds abound. In Platanias there is plenty of clubs, bars and tavernas and Kolimbari has some excellent restaurants. The light in the area is amazing and many artists have made reference to this.

"Beautiful location, great potential...poor hospitality"
Perhaps our hosts were "burnt out", at the end of a tiring tourist season, but whatever the reason, we did not feel welcome. The property is in a magical location, which we enjoyed very much… More
It is regrettable these clients felt unwelcome during their stay at Robin's Nest. On receiving these elderly clients, who were obviously exhausted after a strenuous journey from Canada, we made sure they were settled in and offered any further requirements.
Prior to their arrival the apartment was fully serviced, the floors steam mopped, inclusive of wet room and kitchen. All surfaces, door handles,shower head, taps and light switches cleaned with sterile wipes, the toilet cleaned and bleached. N.B. a packet of wipes are left in all apartments. The towels and bed linen had been freshly laundered and steam pressed, the bed made and turned down. "Place was not as clean as would be appropriate," this phrase begs the question, what is appropriately clean when my wife is meticulous in hygiene and cleanliness.
Each apartment is equipped with an electric kettle, cooker hob and a traditional Greek coffee pot which goes beyond standard expectations in Greece.
Toilet tissue is checked and replaced on each service, unfortunately this couple used the tissue before the next service however we were happy to give another roll when asked.
Our WIFI system has a powerful amplifier which is used some seventy meters away by neighbours we can only suggest their computer processor was inferior and not up to the job.
It was difficult to interact with this couple as, during their stay, they left early each day and did not return until late, spending little time on the premises other than to sleep.
If a client has a specific problem or dissatisfaction in any form we cannot improve our service if this is not bought to our attention and it is regrettable these clients chose to air theirs on the internet.
On checking out they assured us they had a good time and made no complaints.
This is our first dissatisfied client so we will chalk this one down to experience!!

This is a gem of a place in probably the most picturesque part of Crete. The hosts are both so helpful and so discreet, it was like being in a self contained little property. Last year was our second … More
