Absolutely brilliant all round. We stayed in a lovely studio with sea view and were made to feel at home right from the start by the lovely family who run the Astra village (special hello to Kostas and Yanni in the bar). Koutouloufari is a lovely village on the hillside which, although just a 15 minute walk down to the beaches and town of hernossisos, feels many many miles away from the noisy bars and nightclubs you can find down there if you want to. Bear in mind that this is on a hillside so ideal if you are keen on walking but not if you are unable or unwilling to exercise. That said there are many places to rent cars, quads or bikes and a taxi costs €7 to or from hernossisos so pretty reasonable.
There are many bars and restaurants in Koutouloufari and it's 2 neighbouring villages both traditional and modern and all are very welcoming, serve very good food (and very reasonably priced too). I don't usually leave comments on trip-advisor but Its been a long time since we came back from holiday with such a smile on our face after being made to feel so welcome - Crete, Koutouloufari and the Astra village are fantastic and we are already booking for next year.
