"My stay in Paleochora at the Olive Tree Cottages"
Tucked away very close to Paleochora. A quiet location ideal for a relaxing stay. Nice garden and a confortable cottage with a balcony upstairs and down. The owners brought local olive oil, home and home made cakes, bread etc which was nice. Paleochora is a delightful. friendly small town which comes alive at night with the locals and tourists enjoying its bars and nice restaurants. You can also take a boat trip to Gavdos and other locations. If you fancy a drive through the mountains on a nice road make sure you visit Elafonissi for a truly beautiful beach (great for children).
Aris Liatakis and his family run this lovely, friendly and well situated budget hotel close to the pebble beach side of the peninsula of Paleochora. The rooms and facilities are simple but comfortable, at a great price, with nice views from either balconies or terraces (depending on your room), onto the lovely hotel gardens (full of foliage and flowers and interesting garden sculptures) or over one row of rooftops to the sea and mountains. The hotel is 5-10 minutes' walk from either the sandy or pebble public beaches, also close to some very nice restaurants, 5 minutes to the boat that goes to Elafonisi, Sougia, Agia Roumeli, etc. Nice breakfasts, including freshly squeezed orange juice, and a bar service for Greek coffee and other drinks when you need. And, importantly, really friendly, helpful and relaxed staff.

Lovely hotel, clean & new. Staff all very friendly. Sauna & spa available to residents for free. However we only realised there was a black out door on our last day! Cocktails were a bit expensive but all in all a lovely place to stay - definitely recommend it
