Joaquim C. / France / September, 2019
Superbe séjour au milieu des vignes au calme ! La chambre est très belle, spacieuse et très confortable. Le petit déjeuner un délice et l'accueil charmant avec une bouteille de vin. La recommandation pour le diner du soir au restaurant du village parfaite : "Olives et menthe" propose des produits frais cuisinés par une Chef de cuisine expérimentée, nous nous sommes régalés. Véhicule recommandé (parking gratuit sur place). Placé à 5mn de Knossos / 10mn d'Héraklion et de l'aéroport.
