“Excellent value, great location for the beach.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

We stayed in apartment number 5 for four nights in May. The apartment is great value for only 45 euros a night - everything you need is there, spotlessly clean, and serviced daily. Fantastic balcony with views over the sea - we watched the sun set every night before heading off to a local taverna, or cooking ourselves. There's a little shop just 100m away selling all the bascis, plus decent local wine 3 euros per litre. The main beach has great waves for body surfing, and further along are quieter coves. It's a fair old walk to the ancient minoan settlement but well worth a visit. We thought Galasia Thea had the best food in the area. Recommend their fennel pies.

We cannot praise Falarsarna and Magnolia apartments enough. The apartments are clean, well equipped and have beautiful views of the sea. The verandah is large and has a lovely breeze from the sea - perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book. The owners, Yannis and Amelia are very helpful and overall, Magnolia is excellent value. Falarsana is unspoilt, peaceful and perfect for chilling out and getting away from it all. This year will be our third visit!

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment facing the sea.

Quiet, clean, efficient with an excellent view. The owners (Giannis and Amalia) were extremely nice, hospitable and generous. We paid them by mistake one day less and when Mr. Giannis called to just inform me he was refusing to be sent money and instead told me that the next time I will visit he would offer me an extra glass of tsikoudia (local drink). Excellent in all respects.

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

My husband and I stayed at Magnolia for 2 weeks in September and I have to say it was simply perfect. The owners Giannis (altho speaks no english, but is extremely accommodating!) and Amalia are excellent hosts and very warm people. Our second or third night they invited us for an impromptu international dinner where we immediately made friends with other guests and the hosts' friends. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and enjoyable.
We stayed in room #7 (apartment), and it was really good. The huge glass sliding doors in both the living room and the bedroom are perfect to enjoy a lot of Cretan sunlight. The outdoor patio with a magnificent view of the turquoise seas and a new sunset each night are unbelievable!!
You have parking, air-conditioner, kitchenette... we really didn't feel like anything was missing!
The only drawback i can think of is the shower - the shower head needs replacement because the flow is way too strong, but i will notify the owners of this in a private message. I'm sure they'll fix it in no time.
It was so good i am almost reluctant to recommend Magnolia and Falassarna for your stay :)

We stayed at Magnolia Appartments this July for a week and were very satisfied with our choise. The studio was very spacious, clean and new and had a wonderful view to Falassarna beach in front of us (approx. 150m). So every morning we drank our coffee watching this beautiful view within a quiet surounding and every evening the magnificent sunset!
Mr. Giannis, the owner ,was very very helpful providing us with valuable tips about where to eat, what to see etc.
We simply fel in love with this place, especcialy the sea and definitely will visit it again hopefully next year!
