You will experience relaxed and calm moments away from the crowdy village and road traffic. You can enjoy endless sea-view and sun-bathing either from the garden or from your spacious private balcony. Rooms are very comfy and meticulously cleaned.
As we are a family-run business you'll always find someone around to ask a question, have a chat or even try some of the complimentary delicacies of the day. Zania and Stelios really enjoy what they are doing and will make you feel very welcomed.
The South and whole of Crete have endless places to visit. Mountains and beaches, historical monuments and monasteries, tavernas and cafes, numerous summer and winter activities are just a few of those.
