  • This town is such a hidden gem of Corfu! Spent a wonderful day just hanging out with the locals and there’s a wonderful olive oil museum right across the road that shows how people used to make olive oil.. so cool! The suite was just lovely, everything was ready for us to easily get comfortable, even when we got in at 23:30. P.S. check out Lotus! Stelios was so sweet and we got an amazing deal on a traditional Cretan wool rug

  • What a fantastic apartment, plenty of equipment for self catering, fantastic outdoor bbq with additional oven , hot plates , fridge and sink for outdoor eating. Local Taverna just two mins walk up a gentle slope. Great pool for cooling down . The apartment is quite basic in its decor, but had it been more modern, I’m sure the cost to stay would be in line with luxury villa’s . Excellent stay , definitely worth the money- No complaints at all

  • Wonderful country house in a secluded place. In the evenings they did barbeques in a beautiful and cozy courtyard. We really enjoyed staying in this house. I recommend to anyone who wants to feel the local flavor.

  • Great quiet place with small perfect pool! Super home full of friendliness ..: Perfect !

  • The apartment in the "stonehouse" is appealing, in the kitchen there is a coffee machine and a fridge inside and outside the outdoor kitchen, the small swimming pool is a blessing and is cleaned by Gabrilis every three days, unfortunately the air condition worked in the smaller one No bedroom and the animals in the village were already very loud: goats with bells around their necks, dogs and roosters but that's part of the village. The small restaurant with the beautiful terrace is within a short walk and the food is good. We have the terrace at the house diligently used and felt very comfortable, summarized: simple but nice.

    Gerlinde2018-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • it is a haven of peace suspended in this peaceful little village without fuss, with its courrette or you can sit quietly ... well on the small pool adds a plus ... a nice parenthesis!

    Fabrice2018-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay unfortunately too short, we only booked one night at Gabrilis! The place is super charming and gives way to relaxation! We would return with pleasure!

    Maroussia2018-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • The place is lovely. Quiet and good for resting. Perfectly clean. Pool and barbecue. 15 min by car to get Georgioupolis and the sea. Gabrilis is very nice.

  • We stayed for six nights at Patriko Residence. And it was absolutely wonderful! Communication with the owner, Manolis, was always easy and comfortable. So, after we let him know, by when we will reach Vafes he waited for us and showed us everything. The apartment, or better part of a house, is exactly as described and shown in the photos. It is like you have a own small house in a fantastic historical village. We enjoyed so much sitting on the large terrace overlooking part of the small village and the surrounding mountains. You find several restaurants and some basic grocery in walking distance, as well as a really nice store with arts. Less than 10 min by car you find several supermarkets (Crete size but with everything you could need and more nice restaurants and a gas station). Manolis gave us lots of hints what to do. We were fascinated when he shared with us some of the history of Vafes. He brought us a delicious cake his wife baked for us. He welcomed us with his own Raki. He supported us to buy so delicious local honey. Thank you again, Manolis, for the wonderful time we had! It is so great that you give guests the opportunity to experience real Cretan life in a beautiful old house and village! We can totally recommend to stay in Patriko Residence. We will for sure come back.

    Gerta2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • We came to Manoles' place late in a rainy winter evening - Manoles was there is five minutes, we were instructed to light up the fireplace and have a dinner in a restaurant 20 meters from his place, which we did (good lamb was served). There we were, warming ourselves up at the fireplace, drinking Cretan mountain tea and falling into sleep in the sound of rain. Wonderful place, wonderful hospitality!

  • This amazing accomondation is based in a nice, clean, autenthic village in front of the mountains. We had some relaxing days in a good atmosphäre. I can recommend this place completly.

    F2019-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place in a sleepy village in the mountains. The host is a chatty old fellow, who provides you with raki (local moonshine) upon your arrival. The place has a little terrace to it, perfect for sipping wine in the evening, or feeding local cats. Positive experience

    Jan2018-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • The housing of Manolis and Eva is an old house of stone vilage, an authentic Cretan house with its terrace, its old sink of epierre, etc ... A warm welcome from our guests, with attentions, honey cakes, mountain herbs, olive oil, .... Vafes is at the edge of the mountain and an excellent starting point for exploring the region. region, the mountain, the gorges of imbros (exceptional), the cities of RETHYMON and Chania. A pleasant place that allows a discovery of authentic and true Crete. Monique and Joel

    Monique2018-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • If you look for nature, kindness, good food and peace, THIS IS THE PLACE !

    Estelle2018-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • We only stayed one night as we were on our way to the beach but it was a welcome retreat during a day of thunderstorms. Manolis and his wife were lovely hosts and we heard all about the history of the village, their family home and Raki making. Would recommend for a mountain retreat. You wake up to the sounds of the goat bells and have beautiful views of the surrounding hills.

    Minnie2018-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this wonderful place to sleep, in a cute and peaceful village. Manolis waited for us to give us the keys, he is very welcoming and kind. He told us good advices and history of Vafes. The house is very clean and lovely, with a great bonus : a beautiful view !!! In the village, I also recommend the little shop "the lotus", you can visit an old oil press if you ask to the seller, it is very interesting. I also recommend the little restaurant, just next to it, there is a large beautiful balcony in the back of the restaurant, where you eat delicious traditional food with a beautiful view. I loved my stay there, I even wanted to stay more !

  • This is a wonderful place to stay in a very quaint, authentic village. The host was welcoming and friendly. There were fresh pastries provided as well as the local drink, raki. The house was very clean and unique with a shower built around a decorative rock. I especially enjoyed relaxing on deck with the lovely view and grape vines hanging above. I wish that we could have stayed longer.

    Jean2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a top location and Manolis and Eva are top hosts. The setting is beautiful and you are well looked after. I would recommend this highly. You have mountains nearby and also the sea. The gorges are all accessible by either car or local transport if you want to hike there. The atmosphere in the apartment is very natural and the hospitality is most genuine.

    Steve2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • An exceptional accommodation in a very good setting. Our accommodation was one of the many traditional stone houses of this pretty village. We had a little welcome pack that included home-baked cake, fruit, Raki, bread and a little snack to go with our Raki. In the kitchen, they provide all the basics, including local olive oil and local tea. A quiet, tranquil spot at the foot of the mountains of West Crete with some goats grazing in the surrounding hills. In the village, there are a couple of very friendly taverns where they serve lovely local food and there is also a small craft/ art shop with a very friendly shop owner who speaks good English. The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful. We even had some Cretan speciality brought to us once for breakfast. The position of the accommodation is ideal for discovering West Crete. This picturesque village is in a very quiet location, overlooking the mountains, but only 5 minutes drive from shops and the main road halfway between Chania and Rethymnon. A very good spot for discovering Imbros gorge, Samaria Gorge, Balos lagunes, Rethimnon, and the gorges and monasteries south of Rethimnon. We had a lovely week! Thank you for your hospitality!!

    Ildiko2018-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Super small village quiet, cute like everything! Manolis and his wife Eva were welcoming, smiling, and of incredible kindness and generosity !! I strongly recommend this accommodation!

    Kim2018-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 3 days at Mannolis and Eva, where we were very well received. The setting is superb, small village and typical house and very well equipped in the heights. We thank our guests for all their little greedy attentions. Do not hesitate a second to book! Justine and David

    Justine2018-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • It felt like if have found my true home there, at Manolis and Evas place in the cosy village of Vafes. The house was so nice. Very traditional. And thats is a good thing in Crete! But best of all was the great hospitatlity, generousity and feeling of true concern for our wellbeing from our wonderfull hosts, Manolis and Eva. If you should choose only one place to stay in Crete, let it be there!

    Sarah2018-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Don't look further for a room : Manolis' house is just perfect : old house (200 years !) very well restored with a nice chimney (perfect for the cold evening) , fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bedroom, terrasse, very quiet village (you need to have your own car to come). Manolis is very reactive (we only booked 2 hours before arriving !) and very nice, close to the guests and friendly. We enjoyed very much our stay, so don't hesitate to book !

The owner has also a café next to the house which is very nice and has a friendly atmosphere. We had a very pleasant stay at Maria's house. Definitely recommending this accommodation! 😊👍

  • Maria's place is in a lovely sleepy village and you certainly get the authentic Crete. If you like old places with lots of character then you will love the charm of this house. They have renovated it very nicely and kept a lot of the original features. We arrived too late to meet Maria but we met her mother who keeps a nearby local restaurant/cafe who showed us the house and we went and had breakfast with her the following morning. This part of Crete has some good walking tracks and spectacular scenery. Those nervous of dogs, however, should be aware that there are quite a few noisy dogs in the village as is often the case in rural areas, with one which lives on a roof right next to the bedroom balcony; it is friendly but boisterous and desperate for attention and instantly appears if you open the door or go onto the balcony, which is a bit disconcerting.

  • Thank you very much for a warm welcome, hospitality and service. Congratulations on your "Fatherland", which you have made so lovingly, for your wonderful landscape and for your professionalism. Everything was fine and especially for such an affordable price, the result and care was of enormous value and very friendly. With love, Nino, Theano, Frosso and Ephraim

  • Manolis has us very welcome. The house is a lovely Cretan house renovated in the heart of the friendly village of Vafés, quiet and well located for exploring the region of Hania, Rethymnon and Hora Sfakion. It is fully consistent with the description. Manolis came regularly to make sure everything was fine and very kindly shared with us his knowledge of the region, its history ... and the first grapes and cucumbers from her garden. We will not forget the wonderful donuts with honey and breakfast prepared by Evangelia ... In short: we had a very good time of 6 days and we warmly recommend "Patriko Residence" Manolis.

    Mathieu2016-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Mr. Manolis (the owner) is deserving to be an airbnb super host; he is a real Cretan hospitable gentleman that his careful attention to all of our needs during our staying at his 7 bed house made our holiday one of the best ever. The house, garden and terraces were very clean, tidy, cozy with a distinctive traditional character. The overall ambience of the traditional house within the surrounding natural landscape is unique and cannot be described with words or captured on the photos provided in Airbnb. The village offers great dining, drinking, and breakfast experience at Mrs. Stavroula restaurant (which was recommended by Mr. Manolis), free of charge historical cave sightseeing and olive oil mill museum that Mr. Manolis and/or other residents of Vafes village would be more than happy to show you around. The village is well located between Rethymno and Hania and it can be a good starting point for various excursions in the wider area or for those which are looking for more relaxing holidays it can be the place to stay. We were a multinational group from Romania, UK, Japan, Korea and Greece and one thing that we regretted is that we stayed there for only for 3 nights! We all missed the village and the kind people we met there and we are grateful to Mr. Manolis for the memorable moments that he offered to us during our staying at Patriko residence.

    Cristian2016-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • very warm welcome from Manolis was us very good advice and good company, more beautiful house and very welcoming town, full of history. I highly recommend it. Doriane.

Vassilis is responsive, he responded quickly to our requests for info. Namely: the house is located along a small road, there is only local traffic but it is not the absolute silence either. It is really an excellent address that I recommend without hesitation!

    Etienne2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • We booked Lefköpetra 1 for a few nights in July and had a wonderful stay. The communication in advance was quick and very helpful. Vassili prepared everything and even sent us a guide via e-mail, with interesting information and suggestions about the region, good restaurants / cafés, beaches, etc. Although unfortunately he could not be on site himself, the check-in worked perfectly! The house is very lovingly furnished and really has everything your heart desires. The shower in the garden is very nicely embedded in the green plants and worked perfectly. If you decide to book a stay in this accommodation, you should definitely visit the restaurant Parasia in Vamos - the Apaki is heavenly :)

  • Our stay at Vassilis Stone Villa was completely successful! It's all there, what you need. We would like to emphasize how suitable the house is for a stay with a toddler: there is a cot and a high chair. The garden offers enough shade at any time of day and child-friendly beaches are also within easy reach. Pleasant we also found the room service (2x in 11 days)! We'll be back, thank you!

    Liesa2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a nice and confortable little house! Everything was sparkling clean and a lot of thoughtful touches made our stay very enjoyable! Thank you for the gifts and your hospitality!

    Veronique2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended. The communication went very well and Vassilis helped immediately with every little problem. A chair broke down in the garden and not 20 minutes later a man came by and brought a new one. Everything was as described and very clean.

    Tjark2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • We were in the beginning of June the third (2 adults a toddler) for 8 nights in this wonderful accommodation. Everything was perfect: very cozy and great house, beautiful little garden, perfect facilities, great communication and a really nice location outside the village. The small semi-detached house, where both halves have their own well-kept garden, is about 800 meters outside the charming village, which has some nice tavernas, cafes, pharmacy, ATM and a few mini / supermarkets. There are no direct neighbors, surrounded by small fields, scattered houses and in the background the mountains are always beautiful. The location of the place is great for trips to the gorges in the vicinity (Imbros, Samaran etc.) and of course on the south, north and west coast suitable, a private car is of course necessary. A few examples: it is about an hour's drive to Frangokastello, maybe 25 minutes to Chania and about 30 minutes to the Imbros Gorge. The house really offers everything you need for a nice stay: well equipped kitchen with all necessary utensils (appliances, pots, a few spices, plus a small herb garden in the garden), comfortable bed, outdoor seating, sun loungers etc. Especially good for us Outdoor shower, where you can take a shower both cold and warm. Really fantastic and very charming implemented (one takes a shower under the open sky in the middle of green plants). There is shower gel, soap, a washing machine with detergent, sewing kit, board games, books, charging cable, car charger, etc., Vassilis has really thought of EVERYTHING. For example, a beach bag with towels, some toys and a cooler bag (with accompanying cooling pad in the freezer) was particularly useful. For our 16-month-old son, we got a cot and high chair, within 8 days the house was cleaned once and towels were exchanged, dates were very uncomplicated via a written message, so that we could adjust well. Great regulation. Check-in and check-out super easy and uncomplicated, the communication outstanding. There were both in advance by mail many information (excursions, directions etc) and in the house everything in paper form. Absolute and 100% recommendation!

  • We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful little house. There were so many thoughtful touches which added to our delight.

  • This place is a real gem! We loved the rural location and enjoyed the private and very cozy garden. Very clean and nice, and we appreciated the small gifts we received. We will definitely be back!

  • Great apartment! We stayed for four nights and were absolutely satisfied. The apartment is small, especially the bathroom, but everything you need is there eine including a bottle of raki and olive oil. Check-in and check-out were totally uncomplicated and the contact with Vasiliki and Manolis always very nice! Everything was very clean. The absolute best thing about the apartment is the view

    Malte2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome view, where colors change throughout the day, and it will excite you in a new way, as a food for the soul, a rest for the brain. Careful hosts will delight you with the hill of little things you will find in the apartment, such as fruit, sweets, raki, wine ... A very clean, quiet and peaceful apartment, you will have complete privacy. The center of the village nearby, like the lake, the river that flows into the sea, lots of tavernas offering good food ... make you fall in love! We will miss the whole experience of this place!

    Welcome to my house "Manikel", which is idyllic and quiet on the edge of the village Paidochori.

Both bedrooms have a private balcony with stunning views over the olive groves. In front of the house there is a terrace and a garden. Due to the slightly elevated location you have a wide view from there. The use of the heating costs 15 € per day (payment on the spot).

An early check-in, before 4 pm, is possible free of charge, as far as there is no departure of other guests on your arrival day. A late check-out, that is after 11 o'clock, is possible free of charge, as far as there is no arrival of other guests on your departure day.

Thank you very much ❤️ Sas efcharistó apó óles tis kardés Patrik J. Vogel & Family

    Patrik2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 9 days in this beautiful house. When we arrieved Nikos and his son picked us up on the national road and brought us to the house. They were amazing hosts, very welcoming, friendly and fun! Since we arrived in the middle of the night they saved our lives by having a little snack prepared - including some Raki :) After showing us around the house they gave us really good information about what to see on the island. Nikos also speaks perfectly German ! The house is great and has everything you need! The terrace and the garden are one of a kind! The house is located at the side of a little valley. So it is very quiet and you have an amazing view over the hills! (Get up at 6 and watch the sun rise at least once - beautiful!) The national road is by car 5 minutes away - so although the house is located in the valley, it is easy to get everywhere quiet fast. We really loved our time there and are thinking about going there again next year, since the house is amazing and there is so much more to explore in Crete!

  • We had a wonderful stay ! The house is perfect (swimming pool, terraces, etc) and the view on the hills is great ! We recommend Irini house !

  • My stay was very good. Vafès is a small village very quiet, perfect for relaxing, 5 minutes from Vrisses where there is supermarket, butcher, cafe ... A car is necessary to get to Vafès. The apartment is very clean, a maid spends every three days to change the sheets, towels and clean the apartment. The kitchen is equipped with the necessary and the wifi works very well, even near the pool.

    Lila2018-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • With my fiance, we loved our stay in IRINI house. The house is very nice, typical, with a small but lovely pool and stunning mountain views. As against to get there we must absolutely be equipped with a car. The house is located in a small village which is not served by public transport. But there are a few taverna to eat and super markets for shopping and the village people are so friendly! We will surely return!

    Sihem2016-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in the villa irini, very quiet, very relaxing, people from the village were adorable; and then to the house is beautiful. In the mountains ....!

    Marion2016-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • I found the town of Vafes to be magical. The little kafenio had some of the best Greek food I've ever tasted and I'm from a Greek background myself! Vafes is just beautiful. The people are lovely and where the house is situated it's more than just ideal. You can visit some wonderful parts of Crete from Vafes or you could stay and relax in the villas. Wish we had more time to do both!

    Sophie2015-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Magnificent house with pool in a very quiet and cozy village.

    Arne2015-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • The description of the villa is correct. And it looks like on these pictures. The village is great. Everything was fine :)

    Elena2014-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • JUST GO THERE! Beautiful house with a touch of decorative items, wide balconies, the perfect pool with the perfect view. Located in a small quite village but still not too isolated. Next to the villa there is a sweet Cafe/Restaurant with a beautiful balcony and they serves delicious food made by the lovely owner. This cafe was for us an extension of the villa. It was great to open our day there with breakfast or to end the day with dinner on the balcony. If you choose to cook for yourself, in the villa you can find the equipment you need to make light meals and in the next village 5 min from Vafes you can find supermarket with great local products and you can also shop in the big market in Chania which is 30 min drive from the house. Irini and Michalis were very kind. Gave us plenty of tips for our stay and quickly responded to our questions from the beginning of our inquiry until our last day. So yes, we definitely recommend this beautiful place, we would like to live there...

  • Very welcome from the guests. Excellent contact with Vassilis even if we have not seen it. But his attentions (raki, meil and bottle of wine) are very nice. The house with its garden is very clean and well equipped with kitchen equipment The outdoor shower in the middle of October is a plus. The garden is well organized and well oriented to the sun. the mezzanine does its job but if you are over 150 cm think to lower your head. The house is located at 800m (10-15 mn walk) from Vrysses which have many market, a pharmacy with special schedules, and some restaurants around the river. Vrysses is half way to the chain and rethymon. The beaches are 15 minutes by car. very good stay. Address I recommend ..

  • If you are looking for peace and relaxation, this is the place for you. Very nice little house that has everything you need. In the nearby village you can buy everything and there are many beautiful beaches nearby.

    Malte2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful house in the hinterland of Chania. Great for relaxing and enjoying Crete. We especially appreciated that everything you needed for your daily needs was already available - from the beach towel to the electric grill. The outdoor shower is just as exceptional as the whole traditionally decorated building. If then even the neighbors fit (the building is very noisy, pool of neighboring villa is also within earshot), the holiday is perfect :)

    Markus2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cute, cozy and homely. We had such a relaxing time at Vassilis’s place. The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained. The house is stunning and has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. A truly beautiful place in a lovely Greek village. Perfect.

    Linda2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Úžasné miesto v krásnom prostredí, velmi dobre vybavené, všetko, čo sme potrebovali bolo k dispozícii, komunikácia s Vassilisom ústretová a bezproblémová. Doporučujeme a radi sa sem vrátime, ak budeme niekedy zase na Kréte.

    Anna2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place in beautiful surroundings, very well equipped, everything we needed was available, communication with Vassilis welcoming and hassle free. We recommend and we will be happy to come back here if we ever return to Crete.

    Anna2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Vasillis in Stonevilla Lefkopetra 2 was great. The villa is very clean, pleasantly cool throughout the day, there are 2 sun loungers and 3 on the property distributed tables to sit outside or eat outside. The property is difficult to see and the outdoor shower is great. In the villa we have nothing missing, there is a nice, well-equipped kitchen and you will also find everything in the villa what you need in everyday life (nail case, packed beach bag, small Bluetooth speakers, ...). The only drawback is, that the villa is quite noisy and one hears from time to time the neighbors or passing cars.

    Christian2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Vassilis’s place an ideal base for exploring western Crete. It has everything you could ever need, even down to beach towels and phone chargers. The selection of local produce was a lovely touch. The garden is spacious and well equipped with some friendly sheep in the olive grove next door. I will definitely be back! Chris H

  • Nikos's place has everything you need: it's sparkling clean, well designed and comfortable, fully equipped and located beautifully above the village square (and yet we didn't hear any noise) We booked the place in a less than a hour before we checked in (needed a place to lay down immediately after long hours of journey), and Nikos proved himself as the man for the job. A nice girl was waiting for us downstairs, and showed us in to the apartment, which was fully ready for us. We recommend it greatly

  • Gianna’s place is everything we looked for: modern house with 2 en suite bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and Bbq space, terrace and garden and close to the village (1.5km). The hosts were also very kind and quick to respond. They picked us up/ dropped us off in the village and gave us helpful tips about the area. Great spot if you want a quiet getaway but close to restaurants and shops in Vryses and nearby villages. Definitely recommended from your stay in Crete whether for sports or a peaceful vacation.

  • The house is the owner's family original stone house, which was renovated with the highest level of craftsmanship imaginable. The result is a top-notch modern villa, including two bedrooms (each with it's own bathroom) and a fully equipped beautiful kitchen. The villa is suited amid a green lawn. Parking is inside the yard, and the gate is lockable. There's also a big furnished veranda including a barbeque. All in all it is highly recommended!

    This rural stone farmhouse rests in the tranquil foothills of the White Mountains in Maza, Chania.

A perfectly manicured lawn hosts a spacious lap pool. Dine under the shade in the garden canopy. On the upper level there is also a private breakfast set up on the patio. Enter the villa through warm, wooden doors. Natural beams adorn the ceiling and stone craftsmanship is visible throughout, making Villa Kontis feel like your own private, country home.

  • The Villa provides great holiday accommodation for a family that enjoys spending time indoor and outdoor. It is fully equipped for cooking, BBQ and swimming. The only problem we had was that the WiFi stopped working after 3 days and wasn't fixed until we left. If you rely on WiFi for travel planning and for entertaining the kids - it could be a problem.

A firm mattress and super soft covering made it feel so luxurious, even thought he place is nice and simple. Very clean, safe, easy access to everything. Everything you need plus a host who takes outstanding care of his guests. I would come back again! Georgios was kind, responsive and very accommodating.

The apartment is ok, with a lovely bathroom and a nice balcony. The contact with Georgioss was very nice. He answered very quickly and detailed.

  • Antonios’ house is located in a very charming village and has splendid views from the nice terrasse. We loved spending the morning watching the sun rice over the mountains while having breakfast in the shade of the trees and the evenings barbecuing on the fantastic terrace taking in the tranquillity of the area. The house is located quite centrally and it is easy to reach beaches, Hania and breathtaking mountains within a few ten minuttes drive. Antononios is a very pleasent and hospitale host, and we immediately felt at home in this wonderful house. We wholeheartedly recommend Antonois place, and If we visit Crete again, we will definitely wish to stay in this house.

    Michael2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Antionos is a perfect host. We felt really welcome. The house is great. You have a beautiful view from the amazing terrace. Is peefect to do yoga ;-). Inside the house you have everything you need and we really like it. Tzitzifes is a nice calm small village. Try the Taverne. The owner Nikos is really a nice guy and the food and the raki is excellent. Its not the best place in crete for nice beaches, but its perfect for hiking in lefka ori and for making high meters with a road bike.

    Tobias2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 12 magnificent days in the splendid home of Antonios. Everything was perfect, the accommodation, the atmosphere and the welcome. Antonios is an impeccable host, he welcomed us with sympathy and courtesy by paying us the wonderful bundles prepared by his wife and other exquisite typical products. He helped us in everything we could need and more! Thanks Antonios, we will keep a great memory of our stay in Crete !!

    Paola2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the house!! It's full of character and traditional charm, yet has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Our favourite feature was the stunning views from the patio, beautiful. Antonios was an excellent host, providing a warm welcome, good information on the local area and beyond. He also responded very promptly to any questions we had via text during our stay. The village is in quite a rural setting, very quiet and tranquil. Antonios recommended Tzitziphia, a local restaurant very nearby. Its excellent, brilliant owner and very good food. This house proved to be a perfect base to explore the beautiful island of Crete, we would love to visit again.

    Satomi2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice, original place with a very kind host. Lovely view up tot the sea. So quiet and peaceful. Breakfast at the terrace, just the sound of sheep bells and those of the churches in the area. And a great place to have a good Cretan meal, just down the road, down the little valley. Thank you Antonios!

    Marc2019-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Authentic and nicely decorated mansion in a simple village southwest of Chania. At the foot of the Lefka Ori (white mountains). Fully renovated home adjacent to an olive grove. Beautiful and unobstructed view from the 1st floor and the terrace on the hills up to the north coast of Crete (towards Rethymno). In the spring a fantastic green nature with lots of flowers and birds. Sheep herds are herded in the surrounding mountains. For the feta of course. The house is spacious and sleek with a spacious bedroom on the 1st floor and a spacious living room with dining room. There are several height differences (steps) in and in front of the house. That also makes it playful. There is a wood burning stove with wood that we fired a single evening in April 2019. The bathroom / toilet is a bit far away from the bedroom. The kitchen is modern. The kitchen is accessed separately from the home through a small courtyard adjacent to the front door. Via Vryses you can easily get on the highway to the east. The same goes for the nearest long sandy beach of Georgioupolis (20 minutes). And for example to Rethymno and beyond. Chania and the rest of the west of Crete are also relatively close and easy to reach by driving via the village of Fres to the highway 90 (E75). The hosts Antonios and Sophia are very nice, hospitable and helpful. They have created a small paradise in Tzitzifes.

    Marco2019-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • We spent as a family of four 10 days in Antonios house and felt very comfortable. Especially nice was the terrace, on which we loved to have enjoyed a sunny breakfast. Antonios and his wife are wonderful hosts. They are very helpful and even made us happy with a warm meal when we arrived late in the evening after a late flight. The taverns in the area are highly recommended for an authentic Cretan experience. ευχαριστώ πολύ!

    Anja2018-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • The house of Antonios has a great, quiet location on the edge of the mountains with beautiful views to the distant sea. The equipment is great, we did not miss anything. The host is very friendly, even a small start-up was in the fridge

When we contacted he answered immediately and was very helpfull. Opposite to the pool lives the owner of the appartments and he is such a nice and helpfull man. When laying by the pool he brought us cake and fruit. So sweet! Vamos is a beautiful and quiet village with a number of cafes and restaurants and very friendly locals. Looking back this was the best accomodation we have had during our stay in Krete.

  • Elianthos Villas made our stay in Crete a memorable experience. Vamos ist located conveniently close to Chania and Rethimno, only about 15 min from the sea. However, being located not directly at the sea, it is a cozy place without too many tourists and great for a family like us.

  • Beautiful place. Pool with beautiful view. The studio is a little small but perfect for a base. The village is extra

    Claire2018-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at this beautifully restored old stone cottage in the mountain village of Vafes. It is so quiet, you can only hear dogs barking and the sound of goat bells so we had a really relaxing stay. The people of Vafes were really welcoming, we had a great time at the local taverna, and the accommodation itself is beautiful and clean. The swimming pool provides a nice end to a day out exploring and there is a roof terrace where you can see the sunrise. The accommodation is made up of a few rooms close together so could maybe feel busy if these were all full but we hardly saw anyone else - and the people we did see were very nice. I would thoroughly recommend staying here to anyone wanting to experience a different side to Crete (an alternative to beach resorts). We used it as a base to do day trips, such as Samaria Gorge, Elafonisi and Hania, as there is not much to do in Vafes itself. Thank you Michalis!

    Lynn2015-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We ve really enjoyed our stay at the traditional-style Mouria studio. The studio was exactly as pictured in the photos: compact but fully equipped kitchen and tiny bathroom (a shower curtain will make a difference, though!). The pool was clean and its unrestricted use -even on our very last day!- was really a plus. The Vafes village and the Apokoronas area are an ideal place for relaxing and traditional holidays, away from touristic crowds.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautifully relaxing and comfortable. The highest recommendation.

  • Michalis studio and pool was amazing. Staying in the village of Vafes was truly a traditional Greek experience. His description and pictures of the studio was exactly as described in person. It was so refreshing to wake up in the mornings with the sounds of nature and the smell of home grown produce in the air. The best part of our 2 week Greek vacation.

    Tatjana2018-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for an amazing place on Crete: stay here! The house has tons of character, and the view from the terrace is wonderful. Do bear in mind it's an old house: very romantic and authentic, but it comes with a basic shower. Beds are comfortable, kitchen well equipped. Beaches are abt 20 minutes away, and nearby is a village with a few restaurants. You do need a car!

    Sacha2018-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 4 very pleasant days in the house of Nikolaos. The terrace is great with a beautiful view of the valley and the stars. Moreover, even if the village is a little removed, it is very well placed to go either north (Chania, Rethimnon, ...) or the south (gorges Imbros or Agia Galini). Really to recommend!

    Naiyk2018-05-01T00:00:00Z

    Marine2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay at Astrostudios! A private retreat with an awesome view. Our hosts were very hospitable and we look forward to returning in the future. I especially appreciated the Whatsapp messages our hosts used to ensure we were tracking along smoothly. Georgeopouli is a little out of the way and I would recommend getting a car if you want to check out Chania or the famous beaches of Balos and Elafonosi.

    Maddi2019-08-23T00:00:00Z

  • We had a really lovely stay at the apartment. When we arrived at night, Manolis was waiting for us to show us the apartment. He is very friendly and welcoming. The apartment was very clean. The ac and WiFi worked perfectly and the fridge was filled with everything needed for a small breakfast in the morning. There is plenty enough kitchen equipment only the stove is on the small side. The view from the balcony was absolutely breathtaking and it made for the perfect morning breakfast spot or even late night chilling outside. The shower worked perfectly and there were four towels provided for two people. Not a bad word to say! We will be back :)

    Folkert2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • We have just had a 10 day stay here and can’t praise the hosts enough. They were always available for any questions with prompt replies. The apartment was spotless and clean with linen and towels provided. There was even a cleaning service provided. The kitchen was appropriately equipped Fan and air conditioning provided. The views from the apartment are the best and absolutely amazing and the location is perfect as it is between Chania or Rethymno. A car is essential though as the apartment is a short 5 minute drive from the nearest town of Georgioupoli for super markets and more restaurants. There are also 3 taverna a few steps away from the apartment. Would definitely stay here again and for longer.

    Harjinder Kaur2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Vasiliki. The apartment is large, well equipped and some attentions awaited us. It is located in a quiet area but a car is necessary. The terrace offers a magnificent view of Georgioupoli. The location of the apartment is ideal for exploring the area, visiting Rethymon and Chania and it is just minutes from the beach of Georgioupoli. We thank Vasiliki and Manolis very much for their welcome.

    Restored traditional stonehouse in the village of Tzitzifes at the foothills of White Mountains, a place with rich flaura and natural landscape. Spacious private yard and enchanting bedroom with embedded huge rock! Can accomodate up to 4 people. Fully-equiped house, and the most important, a warm welcome and big smiles waiting for you along with some treats! IMPORTANT: See my other listing (Traditional Stone House Tzitzifes) to book for more than 4 people-stay.
    A house with history, its construction is dated back to 1800's. The decoration was meant to retain the traditional elements of a Cretan house. The layout is ideal for families, a bedroom for the parents (double bed), and a bedroom for the kids (two single beds). About the courtyard: Spacious and private yard, with stone walls surrounding it. At the entrance a shed provides shade for those waiting impatiently for the fellow companions to get ready for the beach. A quite old well (locked by a small door to prevent small children from opening) is built in the side of the yard. The patio is stone-paved, and on the side, a small garden hosts a jujuber (the tree that gave its name to Tzitzifes), a mandarin tree, a lemon tree, a pomegranate and a beautiful scenting jasmine. An umbrella provides shade to outdoor furniture that can gift you with moments of tranquility. If the weather is bad (kind of unusual) you can transfer the table on a small shedded area before the house entrance. The spacious private yard is ideal if you carry a pet with you, or you have kids who want to have some fun outdoors. A shower for a quick douche after the beach is also available. About the living room - kitchen: Venice architectural elements on the stone arches of the house can be found and is really amazing if someone thinks how back does this age goes. The living room is plain decorated but still cosy, and a sofa-bed can sleep one person. The kitchen is fully-equipped with respect to amenities and kitchenware, search through the pantries to find what you are looking for. Coffee making (espresso, filter coffee and greek roasted coffee) is possible. About the bedrooms: In the luxurious Double Bedroom, a huge rock is embedded into the room enchanting the scene (Tip: light candles up inside the rock's indentations). You can have a really calm nap in there. The rocks also provide a relatively narrow temperature range during the whole year. A small door inside the room can guide you to an indoors yard, which cools the room and makes it more airy. A good idea is to also dry your clothes there. The single bedroom, apart from its main bed, has an extra foldable bed (cosy) to sleep one more person and a closet. Sheets, towels and blankets are of course available inside each room. About the bathroom: you can find basic amenities inside the bathroom and a new washing machine along with detergents. Sun heater provides warm water consistently during the summer, though during a cloudy day you can access an electrical heater through the main panel. Located in the village of Tzitzifes, it is exactly between Chania and Rethymno, and is ideal for those who want to explore the vast island of Creta (well just the counties of Chania and Rethymno for one summer...) or relax and enjoy the tranquility if the village.
    Tzitzifes is a peaceful village at the foothills of the White Mountains and consists of two neighbourhoods seperated by a creek, where an old stone fountain is built (very cool temper even during the summer - must visit!). The whole area is a big forestland, and you get a good view of the surrounding area, just by walking a few hundred meters up the mountain. Two good local taverns (Rizitiko and Tzitzifia), a kafenion - mini market and three cheese factories where you can buy local goods exist in the village, and Fres which is the nearby village and is reachable on foot, offers a bakery shop. Vrusses (10 min drive from Tzitzifes) is a small town which provides all basic services you could need (including super-market, gas station, post office, bus station with multiple routes, taxis and other shops). Finally, Georgioupoli, Kaluvaki (smaller beach next to Georgioupoli with a river flowing into it), Kaluves, Almurida are beautiful sandy beaches close to Tzitzifes - 15 min drive.
  • The property is idyllic and peaceful. The village is typically Greek, the villagers are friendly, and nature is breathtaking. The host is very attentive. In short, perfect location for relaxation and health.

  • Our stay in Crete, hosted by the extremely hospitable Vassilis was absolute perfection! The quiet village of Tzitzifes exceeded any and all of our expectations. Neighbors were very kind and courteous, the kittens in the villa doun the road were playful and the location was simply magical. Upon arrival, we were instantly provided with a suitable atmosphere to relax, connect with nature, and experience the vibrant, beautiful local culture. This home was warm and welcoming; Vassilis even left us a welcome basket of bread and jams! The house itself was gorgeous! Fully restored to its former beauty. It was cozy, clean, and wonderfully decorated. Anything you could wish for in a long- or short-term stay. Fully functioning kitchen, large bedrooms, comfortable lounge area, and full bathroom, complete with a washer. For those of you who are on the taller side, keep in mind the shower is a tad small😉but it is of no matter. Aside from a very minor detail. You will love everything about this home! It was UTTERLY FANTASTIC! Our favorite room was the master bedroom. The renovated ancient stone archways, and the candle-lit stone wall was an authentic experience that enabled us to feel truly at peace. Perhaps the best room to mediate and ruminate on the day excursions we participated in. and renovated stone structure that makes one feel truly at peace. The courtyard was an experience all its own. There fresh fruit trees, plenty of sitting area, and it is placed at just the right angle to enjoy the warm mid-afternoon sunshine! Again, we cannot provide enough compliments about your future host, Vassilis. He was incredible. His responses were immediate, he was very sweet and enjoyed giving suggestions about places to go, food to try, and was an excellent conversation companion. He was indulgent to every request and went out of his way to make us feel happy and comfortable. It is obvious to see why he has so many positive reviews from previous guests. He wants his guests to have truly memorable experiences, this was evident through his recommendations and openness to share his life and experiences. A tremendous highlight of our trip was meeting his vibrant, beautiful, and delightfully lovely grandmother, Vangelio. She is a truly wonderful person with a beautiful story who is happy to share it😊 We are so lucky to have had the chance to meet her! Overwhelmingly, however, Vassilis became our friend, and we look forward to always keeping in touch withhim. We look forward to the next time we are together! Vassilis, thank you a million times over for our experience in Crete! It was truly magical, and much of that is thanks to you. You are a remarkable person who gives so much energy to the world! We appreciate every moment of our trip!

    Alexandria2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Vassilis place is such a lovely hideaway! We felt extraordinary comfortable and welcome! The house keeps quite cool and has this great courtyard with an outside shower and a hamag! And from the Terrasse the is a nice view to the beach. We enjoyed our 10 days stay so very much. Vassilis is a great host, always quick with answers and very friendly!

    Janine2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful base for a holiday in Crete. The house and the garden are a true oasis of relaxation. We spent two wonderful weeks here, enjoyed after our trips to the beach, to monasteries and after walks the peace and the cozy decor. We lacked nothing. The people in the place (especially nearby tavern) are incredibly friendly. By car, beaches can be reached in about half an hour's drive. The streets are narrow, but in good condition. The house is decorated with love and to move in there was even a small gift basket. We will miss the evening drink on the balcony with a fantastic view. At the next Cretanlaub we will book again with Vassilis!

    Nicole2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Housing is located on the mountain. There is no private parking. The house itself is excellent. People with high growth consider the low ceiling in the shower. Vassilias was always in touch and in case of questions instantly answered.

    Matvei2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Unique house, beautiful, quiet, tidy, nothing is missing ... I highly recommend it

    Andrea2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • A very quiet place, with a perfect climate to sleep in summer. Well equipped house with an excellent patio to relax. 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the beaches. It is necessary to go by car to move around the island. Vassilis helps you at all times.

    Sergi2019-08-18T00:00:00Z

  • We had a great time! We were as a couple with our three-year-old twins and a friend in the spacious beautiful house of Nikos and everyone enjoyed it. The house with garden and pool is very well maintained and very nice! We were greeted with wine, bread, fruit and vegetables and were allowed to taste homemade wine and raki in our time. The hosts were extremely helpful and if needed immediately on the spot. We were also allowed to ride the horse of Nikos. Next door, there is another very similar holiday home from which you will not notice much. Vryses is very close, there are a few restaurants, bakers and small supermarkets. By car, several beaches are easily accessible for example Almyrida with the clearest, turquoise water. Many thanks for the great time!

    Τσιβαράς Το χωριό Τσιβαράς είναι ένα ημιορεινός οικισμός με περίπου 100 μόνιμους κατοίκους, βρίσκεται μόλις δύο χιλιόμετρα από το παραθαλάσσιο χωριό Καλύβες. Απέχει 17 χιλιόμετρα από τα Χανιά. Η υπέροχη θέα και η ησυχία που προσφέρει καθιστούν τον Τσιβαρά ιδανική επιλογή για εκείνους που θέλουν ήρεμες διακοπές χωρίς οχλαγωγία και επιθυμούν να συνδυάσουν το βουνό με τη θάλασσα. Φυσικά μπορεί να αποτελέσει και το «ορμητήριο» όσων θέλουν να εξερευνήσουν την επαρχία Αποκορώνου.

    Is a typical greek - cretan village with about 100 people. Our place is on the side of the village. The beautiful amphitheatre view to the sea and the olive trees can make anybody get relaxed.
  • Genuine Cretan hospitality! It exceeded my expectations! I wish I had the opportunity to go down again. I highly recommend Stelios for anyone who wants to choose their rooms. Another delight to Stelios and his family for the hospitality!

  • In Greek you should say thank you, but after staying at Stelio’s place it’s the first thing who comes to your mind. This guy is amazing, friendly, full of stories, and here to help you or give you advices for visiting. We met the full family and I can say exactly the same about them. It was kinda hard to leave, cuz we really felt like a part of the family... The house is perfect, and the swimming pool is too if you wanna spend a day chilling. You won’t make a mistake booking this place. I really don’t think that you can find better on the island ! ... if I visit kreta again, i will definitely be back there.

  • We had a nice stay at Eleni's house. Stelios made us feel welcome from the beginning. The house has an amzing view from the breakfast table and pool. The breakfast, which was delicious, even could be ready for us really early because of our plans for that day. They gave us tips and recommendations for our plans in Crete. He helped us whenever we needed it. So did he save us twice when we had problems with our rent car. Communicating is very easy because Stelios speaks fluent English. He and Eleni were amazing hosts for us and we would recommend this place to everyone.

  • A great address, where we know how to receive (fresh water in the fridge on arrival) availability (meeting point on arrival). Clean and comfortable apartment, beautiful setting, beautiful terrace, swimming pool to refresh. The traders of Vafes are welcoming and pleasant. A good base to discover Crete.

    Fabrice2017-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very good quiet location in a nice village. Beaches are 15 km, very beautiful lake also. You have to have a car. The region is very beautiful, beautiful villages perched. The apartment is a little dark but very large, especially the small pool very nice with beautiful views. The large shaded terrace is superb with possibility of barbecue (to share with two other apartments).

    Agnes2017-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very pleasant and picturesque stay in this village in the mountains. Central location to visit all west and southwest of Crete. Our hosts are very welcoming and Gabrilis speaks French very well.

    Pierre-Yves2017-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 8 days in the house of Gabrilis. We enjoyed the calm of the place, the deckchairs and the pool. The apartment was very clean. We liked the air conditioning. There is little equipment for the kitchen but the necessary was there. Gabrilis provided us with baby beds and blender for baby purees! The village is very quiet. The tavern close to the house is an asset (especially that the dishes are very good). It is a very good base for visiting western Crete. We were able to visit Hania (Chania), Rethymnon, Samaria, and Elafonissi beach. The first beach is 15 minutes by car. We hope to come back someday.

    Marion2017-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • With one word - everything about Gabrilis place was perfect i strongly recommend anyone to visit this place

    Sanja2016-09-17T00:00:00Z

    Chania, Kriti, Greece

    1 Ground Floor Apartment 2/3 persons, with 2 spaces (35 m2): 1 bedroom (twin beds), living room with sofa bed (sleeps 1), 1 bathroom (bath).
    The quiet village of Vafes was a location where many conflicts between the rebellious Cretans and the Ottoman army took place, in the various battles for the independence of the island. 300 meters from the village, do not forget to visit the cave of Krionerida. At 3.5 km there is Vrises, a charming little village where there are restaurants, cafes and shops for anything you might need. In the area there are many small churches, the monastery of Agion Asomaton and very beautiful villages on the slopes. Georgioupolis beach is about 8 km from the village of Vafes.
  • If you are looking for a place to experience a taste of Cretian culture and unwind, this is the place for you. We used this as our home base while we drove to daily activities. A nature and historical lover's paradise in a small thousand year old village.

    Jennifer2018-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our short stay at Manuelis and Eva was very pleasant in a typical Cretan house very comfortable, very well restored and in accordance with the description. Manuelis and EVA are very attentive people, available, good advice to discover the riches of the village and good gourmet and cultural addresses. They also have a great sense of hospitality. We recommend warmly.

    André2018-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect! Manolis and his wife are very kind. Their house is very beautiful, we were perfectly welcomed. The tavern of Vafes is very good and inexpensive. Shortly you can visit the lake of kournas, go to the beach in giorgiopouli or eat at argiripoli. We recommend !!!

    Céline2017-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for this this lovely experience in a unique accommodation in a fantastic area of Crete with the most hospitable hosts. We had a great holiday in Novenber month. We give our warmest recommendation to the city Vafes, the restored buildings called Patriko and the host Manolis

    Charlotte2016-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We are a couple in Rome and stayed in one of the apartments "Patriko Residence" to Vafes, Crete, from July 29 to August 7, 2015. The apartment is very cozy, clean, well equipped and - thanks to its location, the vegetation surrounding it, and its structural characteristics (high ceilings and stone masonry) - is also cool (there was no need to use the air conditioning system, which is fitted, at night). It also has a front area with outdoor table and chairs where you can dine, relax, enjoy the night sky is very bright, and of course hang out the laundry. Vafes is a picturesque hill town in one of the greenest areas of Crete. Here you will not find the crowds and the heat of the most tourist site on the north coast, while relying on all the necessary services (possibly by moving of a few kilometers in neighboring Vrises). In this regard, in addition to supermarkets, the gas station, the tobacconist, etc., Easy to identify, mark two places to eat well and inexpensive: Καφενείο "Η Συνάντηση" (a cafe / bistro / restaurant where we had some great Vafes breakfast with the local products: jam, greek yogurt with honey, orange juice); Steki Tou Kapri (a restaurant in Vrises to eat one of the best lamb grilled on the island). The position Vafes is quite strategic, as is 8 minutes from the national road (national road artery that crosses Crete from East to West, needed to reach the famous beaches of the west coast, as Elafonissi and Falasarna), half an hour from Chania Rethymno (the two most important cities in Western Crete), and one hour from Hora Sfakion, Frangokastello, Plakias (and from their beaches never too busy in the south, with crystal clear waters and breathtaking views). Manolis, the owner of the residence, a person is very friendly, attentive but discreet, a deep knowledge of the history and traditions of the island, a true gentleman Cretan we want to greet with affection and thank you for making our more memorable stay in this wonderful land!
