“Our first airbnb experience was supposed to be one of our best travel trips. Melesses is a quiet village with hospitable residents and within walking distance of many attractions. Knossos, Archanes, Agios Vasilios, Alagni, Choudetsi, Myrtia, the wonderful southern beaches, the beautiful churches and the exquisite delights of the taverns will all be unforgettable. As for the warm nest created by Panagiotis and Roula, it is a stone house with two enchanting courtyards, which has everything the visitor might need, being an ideal place to relax. But it is the hosts who, with their natural courtesy and personal touches in the area that make you feel welcome. We look forward to returning. Our very first airbnb experience was meant to be one of our best trips. The village of Meleses is a peaceful place with friendly and hospitable people, within walking distance of many sights worth visiting, surrounded by endless vineyards and olive groves. Only some of them are the archaeological site of Knossos, the traditional town of Archanes, the nearby picturesque villages of Aghios Vasileios, Alagni, Houdetsi, Myrtia etc, the fascinating south beaches, the astonishing old churches, which, along with our exquisite food tasted in the little taverns, will remain in our memory for ever. The nest that Panagiotis and Roula have created is a unique stone house with two wonderfoul yards, equipped with everything guests might need, transformed into an ideal place of relaxation. Yet, it is the hosts themselves who with their innate kindness and politeness and their personal touches all over the place make you feel welcome. We just can't wait to go back.”

“Margot and Thierry are exceptional hosts. I think in this little house we could live the true spirit of Airbnb as it was at the beginning, before too many professional hosts started to work through the portal. Margot and Thierry gave us lots of wonderful tips to discover the island, avoiding too touristic places. We could eat in very good taverns with really low prices compared to the quality. But the best dinner was the one they gave us by inviting us to their home. Margot's cuisine is fantastic! In addition, the house is well located to live itself the sea, itself what the island offers under the aspect of the art and the history: Archaeological Museum of Heraklion, Palace of Cnosso, the cellar of Zeus. It was the first time that I and my family visited Crete and we found it a magical place (nature, history, art, hospitality) in which we want to return soon. The heart of Margot and Thierry is really big: my 9 year old daughter fell in love with places and people. She talks about them as "the friends of Crete" who gave her presents for her birthday. I probably recommend a stay in this Airbnb, really perfect in every way!”
