Alexis Kane Speer, from Toronto, Canada

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!

It belongs to the municipality of Festos. It is located about 67km west of Heraklion, close to the town of Tymbaki,* between Matala (15 kilometers distance) and Agia Galini (10 kilometers distance). Its name suggests a red clay(?) tower, of which nothing is known. The climate of the region is generally warm (and many times windy!) and many locals grow fresh vegetables in greenhouses.

The harbor of Kokkinos Pyrgos offers docking facilities for sailing and fishing boats. In front of the village, there is a very long sandy beach, which starts here and extends for several kilometers to the southeast, till Kommos.
