A lovely renovated home with a great outdoor area to relax in. It was very relaxing sitting in the court yard watching the sun go down, and having breakfast in the morning in the garden. You can visit the chickens and roosters who are all very cute and follow you around like little pets. Hammocks to relax in underneath the olive trees. The local beach is close by, its nice and quite compared to some of the big famous beaches and had some decent waves during our visit. Marili was very friendly and helpful, and gave us lots of info for our trip and local tips. We loved our stay here and did not want to leave! Thanks for hosting us, would love to come back some time :)

Perfect stay for a family with kids or romantic couple for those who love nature, simplicity and like to avoid crowds of tourists. Place is clean and neat, well maintained and has all that is needed for a stay. We loved close proximity to Kissamos, famous beaches (Balos is amazing, leave by 7AM to avoid crowds!), Chania, Falsarni, etc. Bakery is tasty, and so are veggies from the garden that all adds yet another dimension to the cottage. We certainly would recommend the place and come back one day. Perfect!

A very pleasant stay in a traditional style Cretan home with modern furnishings. Lovely large comfortable bed with good quality mattress and lovely linen. Freshly squeezed orange juice straight from the abundance of Orange trees growing in the garden. Great recommendations of tavernas and of places to visit. Very good and prompt communications throughout.

We had wonderful days at Horizonte. Fresh Eggs, fruits and vegetables out of the garden, a homemade cake from Vasilis' mum and a bakery around the corner gave us everything we needed and even more! With our car we could easlily discover the whole area of west crete. Vasilis and his family were wonderful to us and gave us very good recommendations. We love this place!

We had a fantastic stay in Marlily's cottage; the place is conveniently located in the lovely village of Drapanias - we recommand the bakery and local taverna. The location is great to explore Western Crete, we visited Samaria Gorge, Elafonisi and Falassarna beach. The cottage is absolutely lovely, just as it is advertised on the images; what we loved the most was the garden with the bbq area and the chickens. We got fresh eggs every morning - what a treat! Check-in and out went smoothly.

Quiet days of relaxation and tranquility in a place that when you live you characterize as "paradise". Ήρεμες μέρες χαλάρωσης και ηρεμίας σ' έναν τόπο που όταν τον ζήσεις τον χαρακτηρίζεις "παράδεισο".
