Bed linen and towels.
Shower room with complimentary shampoo, conditioner. and shower gel .

Guest access

You will stay in the upper house which is accessed by the external staircase.
French windows lead to a large terrace to the rear, which has a gazebo, large table and chairs and two chair hammocks. From this vantage point, there are spectacular views of the valley and hills.
Outside the entrance door is a balcony with breakfast table and chairs from which the roof can be accessed via a spiral staircase.
The roof has two sunbeds and a shower.

The village has 2 shops and a small bar and a nearby town

Interaction with guests

There is an English couple nearby who are on hand for any advice and to meet and greet you if we are not there. We leave a welcome pack and telephone numbers so you can contact them if you have any questions.

The neighbourhood

We love the friendliness of the people in the village, easy access to mountain hikes and the dozens of nearby attractions such as archaeological sites, beaches and interesting villages.
The village is right on the highway and only 45 minutes from Heraklion airport. Very easy access to the west and east.
The nearest shop is Elenis, 50 seconds walk away and she has fresh bread every day.
There is a traditional tavern that is more like someone's house and they love visitors.
Neapoli, a large, beautiful city is 5 minutes by car or a 20 minute walk and has cafes, supermarkets, shops, banks, pharmacies and a hospital.

Getting around

There are buses which run regularly to the big towns, but for optimum exploration, I recommend hiring a car. It is best value to hire one before coming to Crete and pick it up at the airport. We use Zorbas who are consistently cheaper than most other hire companies.

Other things to note

There is a short walk uphill to the house as the lane is very narrow. A C1 type car can fit, but only if you are a confident driver !
