“The Perfect Cretian Holiday”

Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at The Old Bath House for 11 nights, in much need of a restful break. We could not have chosen a more perfect holiday location.

We wanted to be away from the usual seaside apartments and bars and experience real Greek life. Maroulas appealed to us as it is a heritage village, high up on the hills, but only 3 km down to the sea.

From first contact with Mark and Jill everything felt very reassuring, excellent, friendly with very quick communication by email. Really great directions from the airport with photos to help. We flew to Heraklion airport and it was literally just over an hour to the house along the national road - a beautiful drive.

We arrived at the House late afternoon after stopping at the Lidl store (yes Lidl!!) just a couple of Kms away to pick up some provisions. We were met by Esteri a lovely Cretian woman who runs Fantasika taverna, who showed us around the house and was very welcoming - she was our contact whilst we were there which was very reassuring (even though we didn't haven any problems).

The house is the most perfect oasis, everything we could have needed. Perched up higher than the road, there is a great view out to the valley and down to the sea. There are many outside spaces, nooks and crannies to relax in from chairs under orange trees, to a sheltered courtyard at the back of the house which is shady in the afternoon ( where I had a warm nap on the day we arrived after leaving home at 3am in the morning - bliss), to an incredible sun deck upstairs complete with day bed and fabulous small pool and us deck area with parasol. But my favourite place is the outside dining table just outside the front door where I would sit every morning in a lovely old battered leather chair, with a coffee whilst the rest of the family were still asleep, reading my book under the parasol, immersed in the sights and smells of Greek life.

The house itself was everything we needed - aircon very welcome at the end of the day and over night. Bedrooms were perfect, the master bedroom upstairs with a king size bed, French doors with balcony, ensuite shower, quality furniture, the twin bedroom upstairs which my 12 year old daughter loved, lovely light room, ensuite bathroom, then the double room downstairs, with ensuite shower room which my 18 year old son had and gave him his own space, which also has French doors.

Downstairs the open plan design was perfect and very comfortable - the kitchen has every thing you could possibly need with all the extras like tin foil and cling film and extra travel plugs in the drawers. Mark and Jill have very thoughtfully equipped the house with everything you would need for a holiday., including g towels. The lounge area has very large and comfy sofas, again, great for lounging on later in the day if you want to get out of the sun.

The village is the epitome of everything you think a Greek village should be - tiny winding streets, vivid blue shutters against white walls, but also evidence, of course, of the age of buildings with some very ramshakle buildings.

We took Mark's recommendation for car hire from a great company Mustang Car Hire, great service, great value and had an excellent (upgraded) car in which to zip around the island.We spent the holiday relaxing but also driving around the island, seeing the spectacular scenary and visiting some of the historical sites including the Palace of Knossos. Without fail what surprised and delighted us was how very friendly the Cretian people were and how interested they were in discussing politics and Teresa May with us! We felt the warmth of their welcome, we felt safe and almost at home in a funny way.

In summary The Old Bath House is a perfect place to spend a real Cretian holiday, perfectly appointed house, in a dream of a village, basking in the warmth Cretian Hospitality - we will definitely be going back!
