“Loved this inn in the village of Zaros. The family members were so friendly and helpful. Our room was large with a balcony overlooking the mountains. Breakfast included home-made pastries of many types, too many to eat. We enjoyed walking around the village and eating in the family's restaurant as well. Could have stayed several more days. Convenient to the beaches on the south, Phaestos, Gortys, and not far from Heraklion.”
“This is just amazing! Everything was so perfect! We wanted to stay there with my family just over 1 night, but then these people took our hearts into hostage and we staid there for 3 days! I will definitely come one more time to visit this wonderful hotel, people, marvelous taverna nearby and small great town Zarus, somewhere at the Plato of Psiloritis.)”
“The best home made pastries and mountain tea. Would you like eggs as well.. No problem.. If you experience a better welcome then you are very lucky..We have not only enjoyed the stay we have made new friends...”
