Lovely house in the village of Ramni in the foothills of the White Mountains. Absolutely fantastic views in all directions, mountains behind and Souda bay in front. Nice pool, a little bit cool at the start of May (although not cool enough to stop me from using it), and nice garden. Very entertaining watching the House Martins swooping over the pool to drink from it.
About a 25 minute drive from Kalyves on the coast, which is where we went for grocery shopping. Road is quite wide and has a good surface, but is a mountain road so has plenty of hairpin bends and steep drops. Stilos is a bit nearer and has some cafes/restaurants (we didn't try them so can't comment on them). Ramni itself is picturesque but there aren't really any amenities there.
Very warm welcome from the owners including samples of their own wine, Raki and persimmons.
We really enjoyed our stay, mainly just relaxing at the house, taking in the views and visiting Aptera and Kalyves.
