Haris (Greek) and his wife Flora (English) were great hosts. At the ground floor there is a small cafe for breakfast and quick lunch. They also have an Internet corner, where you can check your emails.

Haven´t been in Haris, but for example Maria&Manolis, Christos or Kima -hotel at the bebble beach are good and Pavlos Studios outside the village two kjlometers to the Anidri beach. I think every hotel we have been, can rent rooms for one day or more and we have been there nearly 20 weeks during last ten years.
And if you go at low season, you don´t have to make a reservation, there are plenty of rooms. Go to Skala in the port and take a beer or frappe and ask, where can I go for few days. They know everyone there.

Haris has a very good reputation, and he and his wife have a very nice quite modern place right on the sea on the rocky (eastern) side of Paleohora, five minutes stroll and out of earshot of the town centre.
We have had coffees there a few times, and also lunch - but right next door, away from town, is another place where we prefer to have our midday meal when we're in that vicinity. This is no reflection on Haris, though.
Haris is, of course, quite famous for that article in the Observer a few years ago about a British couple who stayed in Paleochora that winter.

Incidentally, once when in Paleochora we met some yound people from England who were going home the next day, having enjoyed a week there. Their only beef was with the stony beach: they hadn't realised that at the other end of the narrow promontory that Paleohora sits on is a pretty glorious sandy beach! Poor them!

'Dream Rooms - someone thought that one up, knowing
just what south coast drifters want;
nothing too real.
Slip in and out of the
little white towns, in and out of beds barred
with afternoon sun in dream rooms;
play in dreadlock caves, tamarisk camps,
lazy bays of pigs and tufted
under the sun's lens
Soft dreamers' land, after
the rocky absolutes of mountains and their people.
I thoroughly recommend the book, it will hit the spot repeatedly for those who know Crete.
