Fave restaurants were Olivi and Pirgos Restaurant, but also ate at several others including Astrea and Mitsos. Other pleasures included the pancake/waffle shop, gyros and the bakeries. Loved Chania town also. All in...

Despina studios is the kind of accommodation that makes you feel comfortable walking barefoot from the very first moment. Literally, one of the cleanest place I've ever visited. Besides that, room was spacious, facilities (kitchen, wifi etc) were exceptional and location is very convenient in case you want either to do everyday trips (especially west coast) or enjoy the beach...

The place is very nice and clean. Use of the pool next door was good and beach a minute walk away. George gave plenty of good advice for places to go/eat and picked us up from the airport for cheaper than a normal taxi. If you want to go a bit cheaper then you can get a bus to Chania...

We have just come back from 10 days at Despina Studios. When we arrived George gave us lots of information about the area, restaurants, trips etc. The Studio was perfect with a sea view.
