This is one of the rare reviews that one cannot wait to write (landed 3 hours ago). Everything was just great!
The owners have made of Nakou an enchanting place. They have finely furnished the apartments (we had two studios) with typical simple Cretan vacation home style. You would stay all day in the quietest terrace watching the sea view from a high hill spot. Apartments are very clean and room service is every 2 days. Sleep was also comfortable with good bedding and air conditioning.
Location wise it is convenient as a base to visit the area. You have public beaches at 5minutes drive. It is 15 mn drive from Ierapetra (no traffic) and 30/45mn to the nicest beaches along the coast. You do not even feel the distance as you are enjoying the scenary and the breathtaking views. A wide variety of restaurants are also 5mn driving distance. The breakfast by the pool is also great and Musaka is a must, all home made.
You also get the hospitality and heartfelt smile as a bonus!
Thank you for a wonderful vacation, we will be back.
