This is one of the best places we have ever stayed. For us the tranquil location, surrounded by lapping waves on three sides, was perfection. The apartments are charming, with everything you need. But it is the location in this lovely bay which makes it special. Just sitting outside, watching the ever changing light on the sea and mountains to...

This amazing Stone house is fantastic for a quiet and relaxing holiday. With stunning views looking across the sea, it is beautiful. Access straight into the sea means you can be in and out as little or as much as you want, behind the house is a small cove that leads into the sea. The main beach area is a...

We stayed in four different hotels during our stay in Crete, and Karavostassi was definitely the best. When we first arrived, the owners had left out a jar of marmalade for us, made from their own orange grove in Neapolis - you can’t get a much nicer welcome than that!

Lovely old worldy custom houses converted into 3 apps metres away from the sea edge.... Situated on a beautiful beach... Great for relaxation and still close enough to the village near by which had a few bars and tavernas... Spectacular views.... Quiet and serine... Built in bbq for use.... Appartments spotless and everything you need is there... Lovely beach bar...

It is the perfect house to relax at the nice terrasse and away from all the buzz. The house itself is well equipped and the manager is very helpful. I'm not sure whether we would have loved Crete that much had we stayed in a different house/hotel.
