Stelios’ apartment is very clean, cozy, comfortable and well furnished. It was the best shower that we had in Kreta and the local shampoo was so good that we tried to buy some to bring home. It has a nice sea view from balcony and parking area.
    Stelios gave us some nice tips on restaurants in the area and activities. He is very friendly and helpful. Top!

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Avra Apartments! The apartment we stayed in was immaculate and was really well-located for exploring the eastern and central parts of Crete. In addition, the owner/host (Stelios) of the apartment was really nice and had some great advice for exploring the various places we were planning to visit. If you’re looking for a great home base to explore Crete, we highly recommend staying at the Avra Apartments!

    A very good location for those who want to be near/in the village Kalyves, and those who prioritise a location without noise during nighttime. The apartment was found to be very clean, and with very good and friendly support from the hosts.
    Visiting the place in April is probably a ballot with regards to weather, which we knew in advance. And a tip; There is a bakery close to the apartment, and the standard phrase from the bakery staff whenever we went in there and asked for croissants was: "Maybe tomorrow". So just be prepared. (but they have a lot of other good stuff!
