It is impossible to imagine more gracious hosts than Ioannis and Maria. I don't mean that as an exaggeration, I mean that I really can't imagine what more they could have done to make us feel comfortable and welcome. We arrived to a refrigerator stocked with strawberries, olives, cheese, tomatoes and eggs. Ioannis and Maria did a thorough job explaining the house, showing us where things where in the kitchen. They also gave us a light supper on our arrival and shared a glass of raki with us.
The house is in very good condition. The courtyard is full of flowers and has an orange tree where we picked fresh oranges every morning.
Vori is in a very good location -- close to the ruins at Phaistos and Gortyn, as well as the beaches of Kommos, Kalamaki, and Matala. We'd intended to visit other places but really didn't need to. The village has a pharmacy, a butcher, a minimarket, a nice taverna, and a bakery. If you need more services, Tymbaki is about a five minute drive away, and has things like a candy store, banks, bigger food markets, an ice cream shop, etc.
After a week we were sad to leave and very much hope to return one day.More
