AnnaView is set in the mountain village of Mirthios, Crete. Excellent email contact with Yiannis who answered queries and supplied all the information we needed with speedy responses. The apartment (No 16) is large, extremely well equipped including a king size comfortable bed. Loads of hot water at any time of day (or night!) with a good powerful shower. Anna and her family are friendly and efficient but also discreet, making it a perfect place to stay. Cleaning is daily & bedding and towels changed every third day. The view from our spacious balcony is stunning & it is lovely to be part of a working village. An easy drive from Heraklion to Mirthios takes 90 minutes. Plenty of good beaches, Plakias is about five minutes drive, our favourite Souda another five minutes or so on from Plakias. If you want to be well looked after, experience and explore the real Crete, enjoy a very comfortable stay with reasonable rates we would happily recommend AnnaView as the place to stay.
