      A perfect starting point to visit the best beaches of Crete

      The house corresponds to the description and the photos. It is really convenient to visit the most beautiful beaches in Crete. Overall rating 5 stars but I report wi.fi limited to 3 GB a month and the lack of a coffee machine.
