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.
The 2 bedroom house was ideal for our off-season village base from which to explore south and west Crete by foot and car. The local people are very friendly, as were the cats and dogs which liked to greet us when parking the car! It was nice to have a bath (unusual in Crete) and the washing machine and dishwasher were good labour-saving devices. We did not need the tumble drier because there was enough sun every day to dry damp clothes and towels. The weather was warmer than expected and we had a number of days at the beach. It was good to have a choice of terrace areas to use at the house, with a range of furniture available. We used the log fire on a few cool evenings, which readily heated the house. The owners have proved very considerate and we shall certainly consider returning to this property for a subsequent stay.
