Went here in June 2016. Apparently it was its last season of the current owners. In my opinion the whole place wants demolishing and rebuilding! Yes the owners couldn't do enough for you. Yes the holiday was calm and relaxed...hardly anyone at this accommodation! The rooms were over tired to say the least! Stuck back in the 1970s. Basic equipment...

Last visit to Crete was 20 years ago. Villa was quiet clean and had all required for relaxing break. Friendly staff and nice pool/sun area. Local area had plenty nice places to eat but walk further and area was disappointing. Would recommend if happy to stay local to enjoy area.

I would not recommend this place. We stayed in room 43 and would definatly not suggest anyone to book as we had to walk up loads of steep steps. No good for anyone who is slightly unfit. Or have small children or elderly. Rooms are incredibly dated but that's wasn't a problem. The problem was every time we had a...

Arrived late afternoon, shown to room No 42, was low/mid-30s so paid for aircon and safe at reception. Was a bit concerned about the number of steps having read previous reviews but unless you have mobility issues it shouldnt be a problem, lower room numbers are lower down the hill. Spotlessly clean on arrival, two singles in bedroom, further two...

We have just returned from a week at these traditional village apartments. Being honest we had a bit of a shaky start to what turned into a lovely holiday. We arrived quite late at night and from reading the reviews on here knew that there would be no-one at reception when we arrived. The transfer bus dropped us off on...

We stayed here for a full week. It's a family business ran by a Greek owner and his dutch wife. Based in the nice town Koutouloufari which is about 2 km out of the rural coast town Chersonissos. Koutouloufari has a lot of "touristy" shops, restaurants and bars but is very friendly. Chersonissos is ok but busier and has more...

We arrived to check in at 10pm and no one was there. The villa complex is very dark (particularly when you don't know where you're going) and there are a lot of steps (made more difficult by having 6 peoples worth of luggage). The apartments had been in touch prior to our visit about other matters so I'm at a...

Stayed here again last week, this is our 3rd visit in a year. The acomodation is basic but the property is very clean & the staff very welcoming & friendly. The location on the edge of the beautiful village of Koutoulafri is ideal, handy to walk in to the village or down the hill to the port of Hersonissos about...

Just got back from Crete for the second time this year. Our stay was fab the apartments are spotless and very traditional in style we could not fault them or the staff.

I am very sorry for the feelings of our customer but I thought that that we made it very clear to them that the day use of the apartment would have to be paid locally as we had agreed through an email before they came. The proof of that is our exchanging messages/emails between me and the customer before their...
