        Priotissa is great!

        We felt so comfortable in this lovely, spacious, tasteful and very well equiped house with a gorgeous patio! The day we arrived (Priotissa was very easy to find!), super friendly Frantzeska showed us around the neighbourhood. The house is in the center of Timbaki, next to Agios Titos church and the central square where you can find a lot of kafenias, coffee bars and restaurants. Great bakery nearby. Timbaki is in a great strategic position to explore the South of Crete with its amazing natural beauties and cultural sites. We discovered amazing beaches where even in high season weren‘t many people. Antonis gave us tons of informations and recommandations and he kept contact while we stayed in Priotissa. We loved our stay in Priotissa and we would definitely like to come back! Thanks again to Frantzeska and Antonis!
