We enjoyed our stay so much we will be returning, the apartment met our needs, comfy beds, although a double would have been nice. Robin and Sue are extremely friendly helpful hosts, they know their business well, and have a beautiful place. Afrata is everything we thought it would be, unspoiled by tourism, full of culture and Cretan history. There...

Management response:

Good afternoon to you both, We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you both again soon, Don't forget we only have 4 apartments with double beds and the other apartment has twins, so it is best to book early to avoid disappointment.

The room was spotlessly clean and tidy - we missed the tv at the beginning but got quickly used to not watching anything for a week - and the owners Robin & Susan were very polite and helpful. Afrata is a cosy little vilage 5 km north of Kolymbari, so you defilitely need a car, it's very quiet & relaxing...

The apartment is spacious and the sea and mountain view from the balcony in the morning is great. We liked the breakfast with almost everything homemade. The owners are very nice people almost taking care of everything. The only problem with us was the WiFi. The internet connection was bad. However, this is a perfect place for holiday. This place...

About the neighbourhood
Afrata sits very central to western Crete with Chania 25 minutes to the east with its beautiful harbour, shops and local markets. To the west, Kastelli is a busy town with ferries to Gramvouser and Balos with fabulous sandy beaches. Elefanisi and Falasana further west have fantastic beaches and are all within easy reach. There are two good supermarkets in easy reach. Local footpaths allow access to flora and fauna, orchids, herbs and mountain greens. Birds from raptors, to finches, egrets, hoopoes and songbirds abound. In Platanias there is plenty of clubs, bars and tavernas and Kolimbari has some excellent restaurants. The light in the area is amazing and many artists and photographers take advantage of this.
Getting around
We recommend car-hire, there is how ever, a bus service in the morning, returning in the afternoon to the village. From Kolimpari there is an excellent inexpensive air conditioned bus service. In Chania there is an Hop on and Hop Off Bus service for 15.00€. a day. Also there's the Tourist Holiday Train in Kolimpari which visits all tourist destinations and also comes to the village.
Car advised
