We have just returned from Crete and we stayed at the Matheos Apartments in Piskopiano. On the night that we arrived we found that the travel agent had overbooked and we would not have a room for a day or so. It was no problem for the wonderful staff at Matheos, they arranged transport at THEIR expense and took us to a friends apartments just in the next village. The following day the owner of Matheos came to see if everything was ok and arranged transport to take us back to our original apartments. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and spacious with a great view of the sea. All the staff were friendly and helpful and made our stay of two weeks great. The room was cleaned every other day and remained spotless. I have read a few negative comments about Matheos prior to booking and I'm glad I ignored them. You could not possibly fault this place. So warm and friendly it made it feel like home. Our thanks to Helena and George, oh and not forgetting Kosta. We are definitely booking again next year but will book direct with them and arrange our own flights. We stayed in the middle of three lovely villages and were spoilt for choice when it came to restaurants. All in all we had a great time and would recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing time in a chilled out atmosphere. One final thing...I recommend the BBQ cooked by George. The food was out of this world and the 15EUR per person was a bargain. Once again thank you Helena, George and Kosta for making our stay so memorable.
