  • Hello, I have a party of 4: parents and 2 teenagers. How can the teenagers be accommodated please? Are roll away beds available? Thank you, Joanna

    Dear Mrs. Joanna, good day from Chania and please excuse our delayed answer, this is a new feature that we were not aware of. Our Superior double room with terrace can accommodate 2 people in the king size bed and another 2 in fold-out beds. We hope that our answer has proved to be useful and remain at your disposal, Best regards, Eleni Vrettou
