Wish we could have stayed longer! My girlfriend and I spent 3 days at Maria's little big house in Skalani and really enjoyed it. Maria and her family are very attentive. Whenever we had questions we had a quick response, and consequently were able to enjoy all the luxuries of home while on our holiday. The house is exactly as it looks in the pictures too, Maria is a gifted decorator! One last detail that will make this stay such a good memory were the locals. They were welcoming, lively and shared their food with us. We believe we got a really authentic experience of a Cretan town and lifestyle behind the scenes.

We had no trouble finding Skalani (an easy drive from the airport) & meeting Maria. There was a last minute change in our plans, but Maria answered our call immediately and was helpful & accommodating. Parking was available where we met, within about a block of the house, though that could get trickier if you arrive much later than 6 or 7 pm. The house is small, but newly remodeled, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable for the two of us. Vintage furniture in the bedroom was a lovely surprise. We appreciated the snacks and fresh, cold water that were waiting for us. The location near Knossos, yet in a small village, was exactly what we wanted. Maria's house is just off the village square, where we enjoyed sitting in one of the tavernas (no other tourists) and watching the world go by. We loved every minute and would be very happy to return!

Merci Maria pour l'excellent accueil et pour la qualité de votre logement. Trois nuits passées dans très belle maison entièrement rénovée (c'est tout neuf...) avec une décoration raffinée, des équipements complets (tout neufs !), joli parquet, bel escalier en bois, belle chambre très confortable avec sa salle de bains attenante. Let lit est très confortable. ça sent bon la lavande, les draps sont ultra frais. La maison est ultra propre. Le très mignon séjour au rez de chaussée dispose d'une belle cuisine aménagée, des toilettes, clim, (URL HIDDEN) une très belle bouteille de vin millésime 2010 produit par un grand domaine viticole situé à 1 km de la maison...(Merci beaucoup pour cette belle attention). L'autre grand atout de cette maison, c'est son emplacement. A 9 km d'Héraklion, vous êtes ici dans le calme d'un petit village niché sur les hauteurs, loin de la ville mais à l'intersection des départs vers l'Ouest et l'Est de l'île de Crète. Mais ce n'est pas fini...Il reste encore deux autres atouts MAJEURS ! : La place du village qui est (j'en suis certain !) la plus belle place de village de toute la Crète, avec ses 7 tavernes et cafés disposés autour avec leurs terrasses sous les arbres qui jouent le parasol couvrant les terrasses, le soir on cafetier sort le barbecue et vas y que je te grille des côtes d’agneau jusqu'à minuit, servies avec une généreuse salade, du yaourt maison, une bonne bière fraîche et un café grec.... L'autre sublime atout: Le restaurant (Taverne) Nikos Marazakis, situé en bas du village, à 300 mètres de votre logement....Allez ! Si vous dis que c'est le meilleur restaurant de l'île vous me croirez ? Le restaurant à rechercher à tout prix, pour tout amateur d'authenticité, d'excellente cuisine crétoise traditionnelle, d'accueil inimitable...C'est absolument à faire et à (URL HIDDEN) passez surtout pas à côté de cette ''CHANCE'' ! Merci encore à Mariana et à Myron grâce auxquels j'ai séjourné dans cette extraordinaire maison cinq étoiles de gentillesse, de propreté, de calme et de savoir vivre à la crétois(URL HIDDEN)
