“A truly delightful and utterly relaxing taste of the Cretan way of life.”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

You cannot help but return to this place again and again. It is a homecoming. Here you are embraced by a genuine warmth and sincerity and here you cannot be anything but relaxed. The Flisvos Taverna rooms are appealingly simple and kept spotlessly clean. If you require help with anything or have a problem, nothing is too much trouble; you have only to ask. You can sit all day close to the water's edge and order delicious food and drinks without leaving the Taverna's complex, or, you can walk within minutes to the nearest sandy beach and swim in a clear, warm sea. You can drive along roads with breath taking views and find small beaches and coves where you can swim. You can take a boat trip to Loutro, or further, or source any essentials that you might need in easily accessible shops or you can do nothing at all but day dream and pretend you live in this unique corner of Crete.

Far from the airport, it takes a bit of effort getting here. But it's worth it! After all, that's why this spot has remained so peaceful and low-key. And the location immediately beside the sea is idyllic. A few minutes walk eastwards along the sand takes you to the Frankish castle. Beyond that, there's the virtually unpopulated Frangokastello plain and then the steep southern face of the White Mountians behind.

Spiros is a fabulous cook with a very varied repertoire of traditional Cretan dishes. His cooking is popular with Cretans as well as his other visitors. It is worth staying here just for the food! But, apart from that, there are many opportunities for sightseeing along the south coast and inland and there's the beach for relaxing when it all all seems too much effort. There is accommodation attached to the taverna - clean and basic but perfectly sufficient. Overall, hightly recommended for a quiet break in the sun.

For many years myself and my wife have stayed in this quiet and beautiful place. First with children and now, for many years as a couple.

For families, Frangocastelo is perfect with flat sandy beaches and safe bathing and the position of both the Flisvos Taverna and Apartments is perfect for access to these sandy shores which are just a few moments walk to the west or east!

The spacious taverna is at the sea edge and has 18 smart, air-conditioned rooms. Each one has a balcony with a sea-view or mountain view. The taverna restaurant is excellent for good traditional food and its hard to beat its fabulous location.

If you are looking for a holiday in this quiet region of Crete Flisvos taverna or apartments are ideal and provide a good base from which to explore the region or just relax on the beach.

Our family with three boys of 4, 5 and 10 years stayed at Flisvos taverna for a few nights in early June 2006. We can really recommend the place.

It was very close to a beautiful sandy beach, where the children could build their own sandcastles next to the historic Frangocastello castle. The rooms were nice and clean. Though there were no family rooms, the owners organized us to have rooms next door, so that the family still could stay together.

It was so quiet and the taverna was right below so it was no problems for the parents to sit at the taverna in the evening with the children sleeping right above.

The food were nice, the view of the sea from the taverna beautiful and there were a small children playground next to the tables. The ownes were everyday out fishing to support daily fresh fish for the meals and made our children happy with feeding them icecream.

As it was very quiet, it can be recommended for those who like peace and quiet -or maybe high season is different. Otherwise it can be recommended to combine it with some days at a more lively place.

Public transport was possible to get, but we had to wait at the bus stop for a very long time, not knowing when the bus were coming. A private car can therefor be recommended. Or to ask the owners to book a taxi from Chora Sfakion the day before.
