Located at the small, peaceful village of Ferma, and with the beach at your feet, our one-bedroom apartment, with its huge terrace, large living room space with 2 convertible sofas, a fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen, is ready to accommodate comfortably up to 5 persons and a baby.
“We had a wonderful stay with Michael. He is a great host, who invited us to the tavern Katarina next door (with very good food) and in the apartment we celebrated our birthday with us and even bought a very nice cake. He gave us many tips to experience and discover and was always there, if you need something. The apartment was clean and had everything to live there. The beach is right outside the door and accessible via a beautiful staircase. The beach is also very clean and quiet. Also on the private balcony you have your peace. You rarely see Michael, only when you need him. He is a perfect host and it was a dream to vacation there. We will be back !”
Our family villa is just 10 minutes away from the town of Ierapetra. It is a peaceful place by the river and the beach of Agia Fotia. A secret "green" path among trees by the river will lead you to the wonderful beach. This place is suitable for relaxation and calmness far away from the over-crowded, noisy places of Crete. Come and explore the pure and wild nature of Southern Crete and the crystal clear waters of Libyan Sea. Come and explore our secret paradise!
“The place is very calm and quiet, at the bottom of a small bay. The way down there from the main road is very steep and rather difficult for drivers not used to Cretan streets. The same goes for the parking, the roads are rather bad but nothing out of the ordinary in Crete and absolutely manageable. The garden and villa are beautiful as is the path to the beach and the beach itself. The apartment itself had everything needed, however, we didn't experience the apartment to be exactly "private" as its door and window which needs to be open all the time due to heat goes out onto a terrace shared with other guests which is at the same time the way for other guests to reach their apartment. Again, not a big problem, we just had the curtains closed all the time and tried to speak softly when sitting outside at night. We didn't meet Mike but his parents who seem to be lovely human beings, very hospitable and welcoming, who made us feel very comfortable. Thank you again for the lovely stay!”
The architecture of the house is typically Cretan, very luminous, enriched with arches and pastel colours. The apartment is surrounded by an olive grove and has an ample balcony with sea view.
“My daughter and I enjoyed our time at La Luna Blu (and in eastern Crete) very much. The premises are nicely located in the hills overlooking Ferma, with rocky mountains in the back. We had a car and used it quite a bit to get to know the eastern part of Crete and to go to different beaches and canyons, but you can also buy groceries just a few hundred metres away, in a local supermarket, which was sufficient for basic stuff. There are several beaches within walking distance, and one was particularly nice and clean, and not organised, thus never crowded. There is also a good taverna (and in my opinion one with better food than we had in some of those tavernas in more touristic areas around Ferma) just down the small street that leads to La Luna Blu, next to the main road, but is has a really nice and quiet garden in the back. Iris and her family made us feel very welcome; it was more like staying with friends than anything. The flat was very clean, well equipped (it even had AC in the bedroom, although I would have preferred a ceiling fan), and we enjoyed early morning cups of tea and dinners on the litte private terrace in front of the flat, as well as hanging out or reading in the provided deck chairs. Delicious grapes, ready to be picked, grew above our terrace (and our heads, within reach), which was a real treat. Iris and her family were very helpful and had quite a few good suggestions where to go. Communciation was easy because they all speak English very well (to my regret, my Italian is poor). We had a great holiday in Ferma, and La Luna Blu is definately a place to come back to in eastern Crete.”
