It may be a bit off the beaten track, but if you wish to get to know the real Crete you could do no better than staying in Mirsini. The people are friendly, the views are amazing, the owner was helpful and responsive, and the old pomegranate house is centrally located for exploring the eastern half of the island. We were there for almost a month and definitely would go back. Just in case I wasn’t clear: we had a great time here!! I highly recommend it.
This apartment is on the first floor and the hosts live upstairs. The house is located in a valley close to the beach. On your left are gorgeous mountain views, and the sea is to the right. The (uncrowded) beach has clear water and is ideal for snorkeling. The house has a beautiful garden and olive tree orchard. The apartment is large and very clean, with gorgeously large windows allowing views of the surroundings. The hosts were very nice and welcoming and we had wonderful conversations. They also have great suggestions for places to eat and see around the area! We had a fantastic time and hope to be able to go back someday.
