One Cretan writer has mentioned "You have the brushes, you have the colours, you paint your paradise, and then in you go"..What happens if you find your paradise in place that makes you feel like your home and you are ready to leave it all?

The appartment is the perfect place to retreat for people who come to party in Malia, though still well located in the centre. We did not come to Malia to explore it's nightlife, but just needed a place from where we could explore the area around Malia. Even for this purpose George's appartment was a good starting point.
