Ioannis is super sweet and helpful. The apartment was clean, comfortable and full of light. Great location to explore the area, also some restaurants on the beach very close to the apartment. Recommended!
This post is actually a short essay written by an adult English Language student of mine, on favourite travel destinations. Kokkinos Pyrgosis a small village sixty miles way from Heraklion. It belongs to small town, Tympaki of about 5,000 people.
Things to do
If you are on holiday, you can find there a small variety of accommodation units, restaurants and cafes. You can enjoy the sea and the sun. Kokkinos Pyrgos has a beach of over six miles, where you can walk with your dog for instance. You could visit the street market in Tympaki every Friday (or the one in Moires every Saturday); where you can drink the traditional red colour drink "kanellada".
You can visit a lot of nearby attractions and archaeological sites, like the Palace of Phaistos, the famous Minoan city in South Crete, or Gortys, and Agia Triada. You could also visit small traditional villages like Kamilari, Vorroi. And, of course, you should visit Matala the famous coastal village with the famous…
We only stayed at Ioannis' place for one night. The room ws clean and well euipped. They left some fruit and water for us wich was very wellcome after our long journey there. The kitchen is also well euipped and can be used for preparing a simple meal.
Ioannis is a great host! He prepared some fresh fruit for us. This is a very guiet place, close to the beach and there is a nice taverna on the beach. This village has probably better times behind but Ioannis's house was nice and clean.
Communication was great leading up to our visit. Our host was flexible with arrival/departure times and greeted us with a warm welcome; thoughtful touches in the room (given that we were on our honeymoon) and great local tips in terms of what to visit. The airbnb is very close to the local town/beach, but the area is very quiet, and we ended up using it as a base to explore some of the larger towns and beaches in southern Crete, which worked out really well for us. Thanks for welcoming us into your home!
