“Amazing place to stay” Apartments. Clean, tidy, plentiful amenities. Very comfortable bed, air con included and the most wonderful views we have ever experienced. Fresh towels and bed linen. The apartments were spotlessly clean. Staff. Family owned and run and this shows in a very positive way. We booked over 12 months in advance as we were planning to get married. All communications were via email in very good English. I am ashamed to say i have no idea on where to begin in Greek and it is very humbling to communicate with such a warm and friendly family. Upon arrival, we were met in person and found within was a welcome bottle of wine, a cold beer and a plate of biscuits and cake. Yiannis has been an absolute diamond, even assisting with finding a local photographer for us ! Location. The apartments are within the village of Mirthios, this is close enough to the beaches, of which there are many and good for children, snorkling and views, depending which one you use. There is parking for hire cars at the apartments and on the adjacent road. Mirthios has 4 Tavernas, of which we regularly used 3. Panorama - good food, clean and fantastic food. Vrisi is also worth a mention, can take a bit of finding and there is a steep path, but the views are amazing as is the food. There are a couple of shops within Mirthios, but no bakery or cashpoint. These can be found in Plakias. Plakias does what it says on the tin. A good number of restaurants, bakeries, butcher, fishmonger and supermarkets etc. There is a fantastic restaurant that is worth a visit - Sirocco, its on the road out of Plakias towards Souda and on the edge of Plakias. It has a wonderful view of the bay and sunsets, plus the best food. The service is professional, it definately sets itself apart from the rest of the tavernas. The overall location is south of Crete and whilst its approx 1hr to 1.5hrs from the airports, you gain a slower, more traditional part of Greece. The wind was passionate but was a welcome distraction from the heat. Souda is a good beach to visit when the wind is up and the furthest taverna was the better of the 2. The grilled sardines were outstanding. The area was cosmopolitan, with tourists from Greece, Holland, Germany, France and only a few Brits. No egg and chips with a pint of Stella for the breakfast brigade. We cannot recommend these apartments enough !!
