We stayed for two weeks at Elea Maisonette.
It's location more or less in the middle of Crete makes it perfect for expeditions in every direction.
The house offers everything for a comfortable stay (air conditioning, pool for refreshment, everything is well equipped). The surrounding is very secure and quiet.
What makes this place makes so special is the host.
Vasilis is such a nice person and really cares about his guests and for every question he has a good tip or two. And his hints where to get the typical cretan food are really good - we never would found those places on our own.
Vasilis simply rocks :)
So this a 100% recommendation for everybody who wants to stay at a nice place and wants to see something from the isle and the people.
