The flat is located at the second floor of a two floors neo classical individual house very near from the seafront. It is a big flat with nice volumes in particular high floors, two toilets and a bathroom. The house itself is located in a complex from which only one third is occupied and maintained. This particularity can be surprising at first but becomes an advantage as it allows however to meet people and creates a quite and very relaxing atmosphere. The owner of the flat lives opposite to the appartement and let its door open so that you feel free to come and ask all questions you may have. Very welcoming and always ready to help. There are at the moment no shops in the complex but the village of Palekastro is at a five minutes drive. There are also tavernas and the beautiful monastery of Toplou in the neighborhood. The complex is located in an windy part of the island which maintains cool temperatures in particular during the night. The nature is preserved and the neighborhood wonderful. You can find plenty of beaches nearby with blue turquoise water without infrastructure but a shower with only some people on it. We warmly recommend this place.

We arrived in the middle of the night after a long drive, but that was no problem. We were kindly greeted by our host and assisted to our appartment. We also received essentials such as water, fruit and some beers as we had no time to arrange this our selves. The location is perfect for a break away from mass tourism and an ideal location for exploring the peaceful east coast of Crete with its beautiful beaches and quiet villages. A rental car is a must. The town of Sitia is close by for shopping and dining if desired. The apartment complex has its own beach (we found that we were the only ones there) and perfect for cooling down. The apartment was large and had everything we needed. The sunsets over the sea from the balcony were magnificent. Our hosts were very helpful, friendly and approachable. We received elaborate explanations and tips of the surrounding area. All in all a perfect week in Crete! Highly recommended!

The accommodation has a huge size of at least 100m2, you will most probably appreciate the big comfort of 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms, several balconies, washing machine... and you will definitely enjoy a fantastic sea view at days and nights when you can observe the sky and all the lights of Sitia. The apartment is located in a kind of holiday village which includes also a swimming pool area with a restaurant. This was a very lively part of the village and we and our kids enjoyed it very much, in comparison to some other parts which were rather abandoned. Close to the complex there is a private beach (nice morning´s swim), equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas (gratis). Sometimes, depending on the wind the waves brought a bit plastic soup ;-) However, we have really explored the Eastern part of Crete and found many very nice deserted beaches, even with sea life. We have also done sightseeing which we can really recommend (Moni Toplou, Vai, Zakros...). What we missed a bit, was a free Wifi; an internet stick recommended by a Vodafone shop in Sitia was quite expensive. A/C was for extra charge.

Yiannis was a wonderful host. He upgraded us upon arrival. A very kind and very generous gesture. The place is so fantastic, photos don't do it justice at all. If you want a quiet place to resource yourself, it is perfect. People are very kind in crete, food is fantastic. You must have a car though. We made daily trips to Sitia for tasty diners and local specialties. palaikastro is a quieter village. Vai beach is better than described. Toplu Monastery is a must see. The Area is a paradise. My advice stay at yiannis place you won't regret it. Crete is a paradise island

Nous avons vécu une expérience formidable et unique dans un village grec déposé dans une nature surprenante et très reposante. Nous avons été très bien reçu et conseillé par Stella & Yannis. Nous avons eu droit à des cours de Grec quotidiens qui ont dépassé très largement de simples cours de langues. Nous avons partagé des moments conviviaux ensemble, en excursion et en taverne. Piscine splendide avec une vue sur la mer. Logement très clair, très fonctionnel et bien aéré avec des vues splendides sur les couchers de soleil !!!! Nous recommandons les yeux fermés. A très bientôt Stella & Yiannis et encore merci !!! Yia sass !!! Efkaristo Poli ! Fafmassia !!!!
