My husband and I stayed at Casa Moazzo in late June 2013. We caught the ferry to Heraklion from Paros Island. Apparently, few or no ferries travel to Rethymno now. We hired a car from Autoway (recommended by hotel), and a representative met us at the ferry, which was helpful. The drive took about 1.5 hours at night between Heraklion and Rethymno. We parked at a local car park recommended by Anna, who owns the hotel. It was a short 5 min walk from there to the hotel, which is walking only, no cars. Anna greeted us on arrival with a warm smile, a glass of water and pastries. Anna is a wonderful host, who is passionate about Crete and their history. She explained about breakfast and suggested some ideas for our next day. We booked the Pegasus Suite as it was our honeymoon, it was sensational. So spacious and well thought out. It is an open plan bedroom and living, with separate small 'kitchenette' with coffee machine, separate large bathroom with spa, and large rooftop terrace with view of the local church bell tower. We stayed in several 5 star boutique hotels in Greece this trip but this was our favourite. The bed and pillows are so comfortable. Anna kindly left us some local wine for our arrival with fruit. Breakfast is in the small courtyard and is an array of local items, with option for specific hot orders (eggs etc). Delicious. Anna came and sat with us after breakfast and recommended some places for a day of travel, which we enjoyed (Lake Kourna was stunning). We found a cool vintage/antique store in the lane way right of the hotel (facing out of entry doors). Casa Moazzo is a project of love by Anna and her husband, restored and created over several years, you can feel the warmth as soon as you arrive. This is the ideal location, in the Old Venetian town of Crete. I recommend at the least a week for Crete, unfortunately we only had three nights. Don't be shocked if you arrive in Heraklion, it's a dense bustling city, but the people, produce and countryside are wonderful. Anna, thanks for making our honeymoon so special, we will always remember your kind service.
