Location and map
  • Mrs W Kershaw
  • Absolutely fantastic holiday in the perfect setting! Couldn't find fault with anything - even if we tried - excellent double-ly over for everything. Thank you Pure Crete!
  • Ms H
  • Muses was a lovely house in a beautiful location, well equipped and great. The information book was great. Enabled us to see some of the archaeology we might have missed
  • Mr and Mrs Mulligan
  • The quiet seclusion of Kalami was like having our own private beach...was lovely, and with Kalives just a five-minute drive away for anything else we needed, I'm afraid we did't stir ourselves to get out and about as much as we'd planned at the outset..
  • Mrs E Davidson
  • We had a wonderful time. We would recommend you to friends. All four of us including 2 year old loved being able to hear the waves whilst lying in bed. The views from Muses were wonderful. Whilst you do not necessarily market yourselves as "family holidays" Muses was well set up for our families needs.
  • Ms Cornish, Hackney
  • The location was stunning. We loved it. From snow capped mountains to clear blue seas. Beautiful.
  • The Lady
  • We climbed to Aptera, a town dating from the 5th century BC with substantial ruins - Roman cisterns, a classical Greek theatre and temple. On the very edge of the hilltop was a crumbling Turkish fort. From here must be the most stunning views across the Bay of Souda and the Akrotiri peninsula ,and to the fortified island at the mouth of the bay. Legend has it these islands were formed after a musical contest between the Muses and the Sirens. Defeated, the Sirens plucked off their wings and flung themselves into the sea to become islands.

Muses’ commands impressive views across Souda Bay over its garden and a pebble beach in front, and is only a stone’s throw to the small sandy beach at Kalami.

Standing alone, Muses is a traditional Cretan family house of great charm. It is stone-built which means it remains cool in the summer and kept warm during Spring and Autumn evenings with its cosy Cretan fireplace.

Muses’ is a spacious and comfortable house. The outstanding views can be enjoyed from the house or from the sitting out areas in its own garden, ideal for dining, relaxing and sunbathing. 

Open plan kitchen and dining room; living room with Cretan fireplace, ground floor twin bedroom with air con and adjoining bathroom with shower.

Upstairs double bedroom with air conditioning, en-suite bathroom with shower and balcony with stunning sea views.

Nearest cafe 1 mile (uphill walk). Kalives with its tavernas, beautiful sandy beach, shops, supermarket, bank and post office 5 minutes drive away.

The pebble beach below the house  is ideal for swimming and relaxing and the sandy beach, with a jetty from which to plunge, is only a few hundred yards away.
