All you need to know about the location etc. is in the other reviews. We were delighted with the standard and facilities of the apartment and with the pleasure of eating/drinking/sitting/lying on the roof terrace to the accompaniment of the sounds of the village. Having beautiful warm weather helped of course. Even better, Terri and Danny are a lovely fun couple who maintain the let immaculately and are close by if needed for help or guidance. Thankyou, Guys!
We'd certainly hope to book Sophia if/when we visit Eastern Crete again.
Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay here with us and that you were pleased with both the studio and the village.It is great to get really positive feedback from our guests and we look forward to seeing you both again in the near future.

A lovely apartment, in a picturesque location. Ideal for a couple or single person to explore the local area. Interesting walks on your doorstep and the sea and beach are only 10 minutes away by car, where you'll find a small resort with taverna's to relax in.
The apartment is well equiped and has all you will need for your stay, including a large area outside to relax in the sun or admire the views.
Main towns are easily accessed via car or bus.
I can thoroughly recommend a stay, an ideal spot to 'recharge your batteries' and good value for money.
