Agiou Konstantinou - Gouves
Cosmi Apartments may be small, but we are a family run organisation dedicated to making your stay memorable.
If your idea of a holiday is simply to chill out by the pool or you want to explore parts of our historical heritage - Cosmi is for you. We cater for families, and couples and realise the importance of setting the right tone.
The beach is just 500m away from our well placed accommodation. It really is only a short walk to the National Highway for Crete's famously comfortable buses. If you want local shopping, then again it's a very short walk away.
Nightlife here is not about "lager louts" and "pub jaunts". Gouves is civilized and has many fne tavernas and cafes around the beach area, in which you can enjoy the famous Cretan Cuisine, and we eould be delighted to point you in the right direction.
