Manolis showed us what Cretan hospitality is. He was welcoming, friendly and helpful when we arrived and departed. The flat is lovely, there was plenty of room for the two of us and all the facilities and amenities we needed were there. It had a truly Cretan character and being able to dine outside was a real treat. The ordinary residential neighbourhood gave us a feeling we were experiencing Cretan life despite our short stay. It is very handy to shops and within easy walking distance of the Archaeological Museum and other attractions. Together Manolis and the flat made Heraklion one of our best experiences on a long world tour.
