“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

We have been staying in Paleochora for over 25 years, and only found IOS rooms 3 years ago! But it was worth the wait!
The rooms are basic Cretan style, but the views from the front rooms are spectacular.
IOS is about a kilometre out of the village, but it a lovely walk at any time of day.
The owner lives on site, and thank goodness for that as he is the most generous person ever with his vegetables, olive oil and home made wines.
You feel as though you are staying with the family here as everyone makes you so welcome, and it is a taste of real Cretan life.
If you want peace and quiet, the simple life with the attractions of sea view, beach with loungers at the end of your garden this is for you.
Fantastic value for money!

Room Tip: Ask for the front rooms with a view!

It is the third time (and definitely not the last time) we stayed in this wonderful property.

Paleochora is only 7-10 minutes walk away from the apartments. The location is superb, really quiet, the whole place is covered in green and view to the sea is marvelous.

The rooms are clean and tidy, equipped with everything that you will need. We were lucky again to stay in room 2, which is upstairs and offers front sea view from inside and balcony with front-sea view.

The beach was quiet and clean as always.....

The price of the room was at least reasonable (if not cheap...)

Try these apartments if you want to avoid Paleochora's overcrowded center (specially in August) in order to secure a safe parking for your car.

We look forward to visit this place again (hopefully next year....)

We have found these rooms via Internet and made an e-booking for our stay in August 2012. We have been really surprised by the modern services of this small and hospitable family hotel. What we have appreciated a lot was the honesty of the owners about what we should expect and what we are going to see. It is an often fact to be surprised by something completely different than you have booked. Expected, since the owner confessed that they are working for years with foreign tourism; Yes, Paleochora is an international destination!

But more for the rooms; They are clean, spacious, fully equipped with A/C, fridge, kitchen, safe and an amazing balcony view to the shore. Bottles of local wine, raki and oil were on the table at the time of our arrival, along with a promise that everything we would need, our kind people be happy to help.

The hotel is located in a quite neighborhood of Paleochora within a small forest, and it 'owns' a private beach. The waters are crystal clear, ultra cold and refreshing, and your definitely gonna count how many times a day you can dive!

Room Tip: Choose a room with balcony view to the sea.

We have visited this small hotel earlier this summer, on June.
This small property lies right next to the sea, and it has a private beach. It is 500m far away from town center right before the paleochora camping.
The room was really quiet and clean. Mr Pantelis, the owner, was always helpfull and friendly with us, and he offered us daily!! local wine, olive oil and raki!!
Unfortunately there was not any room available with sea view, however the room's view to the garden from our private balcony was also astonishing. We look forward to visit paleochora and ios rooms next year (or if we are lucky, even earlier on September!!!!)

Stayed June 2012, travelled with friends
