“Wonderful winter holidays in Crete at Annaview apartments”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

We stayed in Mirthios at Annaview for 5 weeks.
We had booked there in advance because of the amazing discount of 60%, the wonderful Plakias area, the huge and nice apartment and the facilities that had been offered online (internet, kitchen, heating, etc).
The contact was astonishing friendly starting with our first e-mail.
We loved these 5 weeks: winter time is a very special season there with fantastical views,
empty beaches, gorgeous landscapes, a palpable peace in the air,
and very very friendly locals who in our case were also preparing for and celebrating Christmas and the New Year.

Apartments:
Our apartment was a huge (50 sqm) room with all the facilities you can think of.
A complete kitchen, huge TV, very fast internet connection (!!!).
What's really important in winter time: a super heating system that warmed the room in minutes.
(extra oil costs calculated after the stay: no problem, very fair price)
A lovely roofed balcony with an unbelievable view (check out the pictures on the website!!).
The service was amazing; Anna and Eri clean the rooms very often and very unobtrusively.
The whole apartment complex is one amazing site with palm trees in front of the balconies...

Tavernas:
Next to Annaview you'll find the Dionyssos Taverna run by Eri's and Yiannis's cousin.
In our opinion this is the best taverna around that is open in winter time...
Dionyssos - Mirthios, wonderful Greek food
Iliomainollis - at the end of Kotsalifou Gorge, very good Greek food
Ifigenia - at the crossroads Plakias/Mirthios/Lefkogia - run by Monika from Switzerland, super world vegetarian food
Taverna Mariou - good traditional food
Sifis - Plakias, everything from pita to traditional food

Winter time:
Lonely beaches, wonderful walks, peaceful time!
Temperatures from 10 to 20 degrees.
Rain and wind: but very often the sun comes out and has strength!
The weather changes relatively fast. And clouds do never stay in one place in South Crete....
We went to the beaches many times. Swimming is possible... even if a little fresh...
There are almost no tourists. If you find some, you'll love them, because they are Crete lovers like you.
Plakias is pretty quiet in the winter time, but you'll find:
a few cafeterias that are open, three supermarkets and the grocery, the bioladen/health food shop and at least one open taverna.
The journey (Frankfurt/Heraklion with one stop in Thessaloniki) was really long but very much worth it!
The flight itself was cheaper than the biggest bargain flight we ever had to Crete....

Excellent!

Room Tip: We stayed on the top level of the site, which is very secluded and quiet.

The apartment is just great: it combines style and home comfort, gives you a feeling of staying in your own home. The view from the bedroom and terrace is just spectacular, it opens wide panorama to the bay and majestic mountains. You'll need a car there though, but even if you don't drive the owners are extremely helpful

Our second visit and we have already booked our third! Superb accommodation - spacious, very clean, well furnished and with fantastic views. Booking is made easy by Yiannis (his organistation and administration are excellent) and Anna and Eri look after you every need. The village is lovely, it makes for a great base and has 4 excellent tavernas.
We have travelled extensively across Europe and we feel that this area is as beautiful as anywhere we have visited. Wonderful beaches, great walking and superb mountain scenery.

Flight to Chania, pick up a car from airport, drive Vamos - Georgioupoli - Kournas - Lappa - Kali Sykia - Mirthios and find AnnaView Apartments. Anna and family wish you welcoming and you'll get very clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment. We spent one week in Mirthios and it was very easy to visit for example: Rethimnon, Amari valley, Knossos, Phaistos, Argyroupoli, Frangokastello, Askyfou plateau (war museum), Hora Sfakion, Preveli Monastery and of course many surrounding beaches. For second week we drove to Paleochora, our "home town" as we call it.

Apartment was very clean and comfortable. Kitchen was very well equipped with gadgets.Inclusive air conditioning is a bonus during the summer months. Stunning views over the bay of Plakias.Anna and family were very friendly and welcoming.
Very good tavernas in village, handy when don't want to go down to Plakias.
We have no hesitation in recommending Anna Apartments, as a perfect place for exploring this part of beautiful Crete.

We booked for just one week as the apartments were fully booked for the second week. Therefore we decided to have a two centre holiday on both north and south of the island. At the end of the week we were sorry that we could not have spent the second week here as well.

The apartments were very clean and the sheets and towels were changed regularly. The apartments were well equipped compared to most apartments in Crete including free air conditioning and WiFi. We had an excellent sized balcony with views over Plakias and the sea

Anna and her family are lovely and friendly and I get the impression that nothing is too much trouble for them. We arrived quite late but Anna was waiting for us and insisted in helping with our luggage. She had also provided some biscuits and a couple of cans of beer for us which were very welcome after the long journey.

There is a Taverna close to the apartments which serves very nice food and one further down the hill which was equally good. Anna's daughter Eri owns a taverna in Plakias, Sirocco and we had the best meals of our holiday there.

If you are looking to stay in the Plakias area I would not hesitate in recommending these apartments
