This was the third time we've stopped at these apartments and they never disappoint. Kostas and Nikos work hard to make sure that the holiday is enjoyable from start to finish and there is always a great atmosphere. It's no wonder that many go back each year and we are already planning to return next year too.
I have mobility issues and these apartments are ideally located for me as the surroundings are flat, there are two supermarkets, a bakery and some nice restaurants virtually across the road and even the bus stop is near the bakery. If you get an apartment at the rear you may also be lucky to get a sea view. The barbecue with Greek dancing should definitely not be missed and they also do a quiz night, bingo and karaoke but our most memorable trips have been organised by Nikos when he has taken us for meals at places that you would not normally get to visit without native knowledge for a true taste of Crete - and at exceptionally reasonable prices too!!
There are several trips available on a yellow train which can be booked locally, and there is also a red train but the booking station is near Lidl. Taxis to and from Rethymnon cost 10 Euros. Bus tickets cost 1.20 Euros but have to be bought before boarding but these can be bought from reception or the bar at the apartments, or from supermarkets and kiosks.
There is a market in the square on a Thursday and the bus stops there near the tourist information office. If you go down the road past the tourist information place this brings you to the old town and we have several times visited a restaurant down here called The Lemon Tree which is excellent. The bus takes you into Rethymnon in one direction and to Panormo at the other and the last bus is at 11pm.
There is a car hire place directly across the road and Kostas and Nikos are very proud of their island and happy to help with information and directions on places to visit for the more adventurous.
