The place is great! Very clean and comfortable! The village is very quiet and is just ten minutes from elafonisi. Hostess is very very kind and adorable! Hope someday be there again…
Lovely owner who welcomed us with very generous lunch and drinks and really could not do enough for us across the two nights/three days that we were there Lovely place to stay in quiet village with great access to Elafonisi beach if you are touring in a car, great mountain views and a real Cretan experience – fantastic!!
What a wonderful gem of a place. The owners are so accommodating and had homemade cake waiting for us every day! The villa is recently renovated, clean and has everything you can need!

Η σπιτονοικοκυρά πολύ φιλόξενη, πρόθυμη πάντα να μας εξυπηρετήσει, μας πρόσφερε σπιτικά γλυκά, μαρμελάδες και πολλά άλλα εδέσματα. Το δωμάτιο είναι σε κοντινή απόσταση από δύο καταπληκτικές παραλίες (Ελαφονησι σε 15 λεπτά και κεδροδασος σε25 λεπτά) το σπίτι είχε αυλή με θέα το βουνό ,απολαύσαμε την ησυχία του χωριού και είχαμε ότι μπορούσαμε να χρειαστούμε. Το συστήνω ανεπιφύλακτα!!!!
Уют, чистота, белоснежное постельное белье и полотенца. Очень гостеприимная хозяйка, встретившая нас домашней выпечкой и холодным домашним лимонадом. Все было отлично!)
Posizione a 10/15 minuti dalla spiaggia di Elafonisi. Piccolo paesino molto silenzioso e tranquillo. Ottimo per chi come noi vuole immergersi nella vera vita cretese. Proprietari accoglienti, disponibili e premurosi che vi regalano sorrisi e cortesia in ogni momento. Appartamento dotato di tutti i comfort. Pulizia ottima.
I proprietari della struttura sono persone di una gentilezza e accoglienza veramente rara. La camera doppia è molto spaziosa e con frigorifero oltre a tutto il necessario per preparare colazione e spuntini. La posizione consente di raggiungere spiagge stupende in soli 15 minuti di auto.
La gentilezza e la generosità dei proprietari fa la differenza. Casa nuova, pulita e attrezzatissima!
