We stayed for 20 days at the apartments of Fata Morgana with my family, during the August. When we arrived, a pleasant surprise waited us in the apartment: two bottles, one filled with olive oil and one with raki. The apartment itself was very nice and clean with air-condition and a full functioning kitchen. The service was excellent and the... More

We spent two days in Fata Morgana with a few other families. The rooms were very well-equipped to accommodate our demands. A very nice touch were the olive oil and raki waiting for us. The grounds are simply beautiful with olive trees adorned by hammocks and the sound of sicadas. The beach below is simply lovely and very clean. All... More

Arrival (in our hire car) was smooth and welcoming. There were bikes, which we borrowed to cycle into the village, where we found several supermarkets and a delicious bakery. We were pleasantly surprised to find a welcome pack of fresh fruit, breakfast toasts, jams, butter, water, olive oil and raki - thanks! Our apartment was lovey - very cool, even... More

No traffic and stress here, just nature and yourself. The beach is big, sandy and with a few people on it. Rooms are very clean, with... More

This is our 4th visit to Fata Morgana (we discovered them in 2004 driving around Crete after my partner hosted a lecture tour of archeological sites in Greece). We love the warm family atmosphere of the whole operation, its beauty and simplicity. The highlight of this trip was having Giorgios/George meet us at the Heraklion airport and drive us to... More

it felt too big compared to what I was hoping for : more intimacy, more seclusion. All that said, it's quite charming, it's located in an olive grove and there are lots of details in the decoration and layout. The studio itself is perfectly equipped but two things really stood out in a negative way : 1) There was a... More

The apartments have a fantastic location - right above the beach (one has to cross a gravel road and go down the stairs to get down to the beach), all apartments I lived in and visited had one or several balconies and or/terraces with sea view. The apartments are spacious and equipped with everything one needs (kitchen stuff, blanket, hair... More
