This is a lovely apartment with a beautiful view of Elounda bay. Rira and Edo are very hospitable, generous and helpful hosts. Rira picked us up at the bus stop, so we didn't even need a taxi. On arrival, we found that the apartment was already stocked with some of the basics - olive oil, balsamic vinegar, milk, water, wine, raki, yoghurt, coffee, tea, sugar, honey jam, etc. It was very welcoming. We stayed here the first week in April, so the tourist season wasn't in full swing yet and it was pleasantly quiet, but there were enough tavernas to enjoy eating out - in the village, Nico's and Dimitri's were both very good for seafood and Greek specialities and very reasonably priced. On our last night our hosts took us to a taverna in Plaka to hear some traditional Cretan music., which was a very special treat. We had a lovely, interesting and relaxing holiday here and would really recommend it.
