There has not been a word " invented " yet to describe Porto Kalyves Apartments, breathtaking in its views, friendly in its ambience, and as for the family Atsalakis, they couldn't have been more welcoming if they had tried! As these apartments had only opened this season, it was with a little bit of trepidation that Jill ( my friend, neighbour and travelling companion ) booked for this years girls only holiday. We needn't have worried. The apartment was clean , fresh, airy and light. The kitchen was well equipped, the bathroom pristine and the bedroom cosy. There were two balconies to our room, the rear one used for the washing line to hang wet bikinis and beach towels on, so that the front of the property didn't look like a block of flats. The front balcony overlooks Souda Bay, and the view is unrestricted for as far as you can see, with Almerida to the right, and Souda peninsula to the left. We were made to feel so welcome by George and his sister in law Maria, and nothing was too much trouble for them and their families to make our stay memorable. They advised us on the best place to go for car rental ( Auto Club ) and even got Maria's brother, a local taxi driver, to take us to the airport to come back to UK.
The village was small enough to be friendly and big enough to have all amenities, and long may it continue to be so. We are going back next year, and hope this review will prove useful to those of you who want a peaceful holiday but near to all things Cretan...food, beaches and friendly people.
