Maison Eriki Apartments, Epanochori in Crete
A place for the people that are looking for peace and quiet, Studios Eriki in the mountain village of Epanochori. The building is surrounded by beautiful wild nature. Epanochori is a village on the way from Chania to the southcoast, and it is not far from the beaches of Sougia and several beaches in and around Paleochora. The studios are 40m2 and they all have a sitting area, a kitchenette and a balcony with a stunning view over the green surroundings. We stayed in an apartment with personality and soul, with carefully chosen curtains, beautiful bath towels and fancy bedsheets. The plates and cups and saucers also told you that the friendly lady that runs the house (her name is Marie NoŽlle and she speaks French, English and Dutch) has made an effort to make it a cozy place. There is a kitchen and there is enough equipment in case you want to make a meal in your apartment. We had a coffee machine too. Inside there were two large couches and a table and chairs. Outside there was a large terrace with the most amazing view over the mountains. In the distance on two places, between the mountains, you could see the Libian Sea. There were a nice marble table and 4 comfortable chairs outside on the terrace where you could also have dinner or a drink and look at the beautiful sunsets. On clear days we had the most amazing starlit skies because Epanochori is not a very large village and Maison Eriki is at the edge of it. You can reach these apartments if you drive down south from Chania to Sougia over the Chania - Prases - Epanochori - Sougia road. Maison Eriki can be reached if you turn left just before the Epanochori Village sign and drive to the small white church you see there. It is the creamy-yellowish building just in front of that small church. It is not so expensive and it's a good place to totally relax. You can make nice walks in the area, or you can make the short ride to one of the beaches in the area.
