“Excellent in every respect but a little isolated” Beautiful apartment,beautiful complex,excellent staff?...quite isolated and a car is essential for getting around
The manager was superb and nothing was too much trouble
although makriyalos is only minutes by car, a car is essential
“Best holiday ever!” My wife and 11 year-old daughter rented the apartment from Betty and Hilius for about two-and-a-half weeks in July and August, and we can honestly say we fee extremely lucky to have stumbled upon it! The village, Lefkogia is charming, the people overly welcoming and accommodating. (Make sure and go to Maria's in the village for dinner!) There are loads of fantastic beaches all over the area, some within walking distance of the apartment and the best thing was none of them were overcrowded at all, even on the hottest days. Some of the sites around the area include Preveli Monastery up on top of a mountain nearby, and Preveli Beach, one of the only palm beaches on Crete. Also make sure and visit Stavros' pottery shop in Asomatos village about 3 mins. drive. Our hosts, Betty and Hilius Katsavelou, were some of the nicest people we've had the pleasure of meeting on any holiday! They have a farm within walking distance of the village with a variety of animals; horses, pigs, a cow, Flower. Hilius' home-grown olives are delicious! (They have their own grove) We would recommend this apartment of the larger villa in the village to anyone planning a holiday to Crete.
“Excellent centrally sited apartment” We flew into Heraklion and after hiring a car there drove to Rethymno. Alki was there to meet and greet us. In addition to showing us how everything worked he also gave very good advice on where to park - and not park - the car. The apartment was excellent and met our needs spot on. It was very central to both the old town in one direction and the main beach in the other. (There is also a smaller beach directly opposite).
Alki was always readily available if we had any queries or wanted advice. He regularly stayed in the apartment below and his Mum and Dad also stayed over from time to time. They were very friendly and made us some delicious Greek food. We had a really enjoyable holiday.
