New to the UK market, this Hotel is away from the overtly tourist areas, quiet but in touch with the proper Cretan way of life and a couple of lovely, interesting towns nearby. Mainly Germans and Swiss people go as the advertising is only hitting the UK in the last couple of years, but we didn't care what nationality were there and we met some lovely people and made friends so easily. A small, cozy hotel and very clean. Home cooked food by a lovely Cretan lady and served by the most sweet, delightful young women tentative to our needs the whole time. There is a small chapel built on the top floor where you can pray or reflect on things with the stars shining down on you. Was sad to leave.
