The Travel Advisor means that I cooperate with local accommodation owners, Cretan rental car companies, a local bike and scooter rental shop, windsurfing centers and restaurants to help foreign guests plan their holidays in this beautiful part of Crete. I don’t give any personal preferences in regards to particular accommodations but rather I share my local knowledge with prospective guests to simplify their selection of the best accommodation for their particular needs. With regards to car rentals I explain different car categories with examples and how the system works in Crete (unfortunately we have some dishonest companies here). If the guests are interested I can submit a non-binding, usually discounted, price quote from a reliable rental car company with car deliveries all over Crete.
Yes, we don´t have big tourist crowds here but we also don’t have that many apartments available. There are maybe only 30 apartments alongside Kouremenos beach and those are usually fully booked by early spring for the high season mid June – mid September. But even apartments further from the beach are eventually booked for the high season. Last minute discounts are non-existent here for the high season.
If you are looking for an accommodation in Palekastro area I would suggest to click on my photo to see all offered accommodations from inexpensive but absolutely clean and functional rooms a little further from the beach to beachfront mini villas. If you were interested in any apartment please send me an inquiry about availability before making the official reservation request. We advertise through many channels and availability changes constantly so calendars could be outdated and I really hate to decline any reservation requests and disappoint interested guests. Always have a confirmed accommodation before buying air tickets. It might sound strange but it is easier to get available flights to Heraklion in the high season than to get a good available accommodation in Palekastro area.
After my personal introduction and general information I would like to present information for this accommodation called Studios in Agathias.
This listing is for studios which have two regular beds and a third bed can be added. There is a well-equipped kitchenette, very clean bathroom with shower and always available cold and hot water (if there is a big demand for water the owner runs a regular water heater and a water pressure pump). Air-conditioner and high speed Wi-Fi internet are available at no extra charge. Daily cleaning service is included. Each studio has an own veranda with at least partial view of the sea which is about 1 km away. There is a common area under the tree with tables and chairs where you can have a breakfast or an afternoon cup of tea or coffee. A portable barbecue can be used for preparing some grilled meals. A washing machine is available as well as an iron or ironing board. A special baby bed and/or a baby chair can be provided. Free parking is available in front of the building.
The village has one mini market and several taverns. Palekastro with many shops, taverns, a bank and a pharmacy is next to the village about 0,5 km.
The owner is the president of the local tourist association. He is present 24/7 and always available to help his guests.
We have several same studios which differ in tiny details like a door to the bathroom in a different place or different verandas. So if you see that our studio is not available for your dates send us a message and we can make other studio available.

Der Aufenthalt bei Olga Apartments war sehr erholsam. Schon der Kontakt mit Peter war freundlich und sehr informativ. Der check-in verlief kurz und knapp und wir waren begeistert von der Lage unseres Apartments. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Accueil chaleureux d'une femme qui s'est excusée de l'absence de Peter. Nous sommes restés seuls durant les deux jours dans l'immeuble, au calme.
Pour les breakfeast items cela se résume à une dosette de café et de sucre par jour et par personne. Rien d'autre pourtant dans l'annonce il y avait au moins du pain frais. Heureusement les boutiques et restaurants fonctionnent encore un peu à proximité.
Pas de lunette aux WC.
Très bel endroit, mini villa de 35 m2 environ bien équipée, piscine juste à coté de notre terrasse, plage à quelques mètres, endroit idéal avec un ou 2 enfants.
Pain frais remis gratuitement tous les matins, à notre arrivée le frigo était remplis : jus d'orange, lait, œufs, fromage : cela nous a bien dépanné ! Petites tavernes proches, ne pas se priver les prix sont attractifs nous avons ainsi mangé midi et soir au restaurant !
Le contact avec Peter a été bon, il nous avait géré la voiture de location également, tout s'est bien passé, endroit à recommandé pour passer des vacances reposantes et calmes !
Very nice place ! Swimming pool close to the terrace of the villa, the beach is also very close to the villa ( about 30 meters), fresh bread every morning ( free), rooms cleaned every morning. At our arrival the fridge was full of eggs, orange juice, and milk & we really appreciated this kind attention.
Many tarverns close to the villa with cheap prices.
The contact with peter was very good, he handled the car rental, all was perfect.
Excellent stay, excelent home!
Thank you again to the friendly staff (cleaning every day)
Beautiful setting, with sandy beaches nearby and varied.
The kitchen equipment is a fair bit (can be for French?)
But all the nearby taverns (Vai among others, 100m) are to be
Excellent séjour, excelent accueil !
Merci encore a la gentillesse du personnel ( ménage tout les jours)
Très beau cadre, avec des plages sablonneuses toutes proches et variées.
L'équipement de la cuisine est un peu juste (peut être pour des français ?)
Mais toutes les tavernes à proximité (vaï entre autre, à 100m) sont la pour y
It is like Peter has written: a beautiful region miles away from tourism. We found the place where the fairies live told our 4-years-old daughter (Richtis Waterfall). And we found the place where Costas live. He is the soul of the Flamingo and the patron of Palekastro. "Ask Costas" - he will make it possible at day or at night. Not to forget Peter - he managed our accommodation and the car rental at first very well. There is a very good networking between him and Costas. Many many thanks to Costas and Corina and there flexibility and patience to find time for roomservice when our Baby did not sleep.
