  • Michalis and Niki are excellent hosts, who go the extra mile for their guests. We arrived late due to a delayed flight, but they stayed on and were there to greet us when we arrived at the house. Niki had made a delicious plate of stuffed local vegetables, plus we we presented with a basket full of local produce - all delicious and greatly appreciated. Kouremenos Sea View House is a very special place to stay. The location is perfect if you are looking for somewhere quiet and a bit off the beaten track. We were a party of 2, so the house felt very spacious, but would be very comfortable for 4 adults too. There are some lovely extra touches around the house like soaps and candles which made the place feel very welcoming. The house has good outside space with stunning views across Kouremenos Bay, as well as the valley (full of olive trees). There is a large covered barbecue area and easy parking for two cars. The road leading to the house is a steep rough track, so take care with your rent-a-car! We managed fine with a small Panda. The nearest town is Palekastro - 7 minutes drive. Some good restaurants, small bakery, mini markets (larger supermarket in Sitia if you want to stock up) and a very helpful pharmacy! Lovely beach side restaurants at Chiona beach - we ate at the very end one, with tables perched just above the sea. The best yogurt and local honey ever! Good beaches all around the area, as ever the best ones are a bit hidden, so be prepared to walk. We were also interested in Minoan ruins and there are some good ones to be seen plus lovely walks to be had (2 local gorges) - we visited in October, so heat was bearable - in high summer you would need to start very early... If you are looking for a quiet, calm, laid back, easy holiday - we would highly recommended this place. You will enjoy!

But the most important thing is the attitude of the hosts - Michalis and his family - wonderful wonderful people who conquered us Hospitality! Gorgeous welcome products from Nicky - thank you so much again from the bottom of my heart! We're thinking we'll be back!

  • The house is set high on the hill and the views are stunning and incredible, not just over Kourmenous beach as advertised, in the near distance, but over the entire valley of Palekastro and Agathias. The small house was very suitable for our simple needs — two bedrooms, bathroom and open plan kitchen/dining. The outdoor space is much times larger with good seating on three sides of the house, to follow or escape the sun. Very quiet area with no noise or interference and just 10 mins drive to the beach or the small town with plenty of tavernas and shops. Just exactly what this elderly couple wanted ! Peace , quiet and serenity. A car is essential to enjoy all this area promises, and the main roads in east Crete are generally quiet,good and easy to drive, but once you go off main road you must seriously beware of damage to tyres and underneath of the car as your insurance typically won’t cover this . Beach roads can be like this. The final kilometer to the house is off road and the ascent and descent requires first and second gear driving. Michalis and Niki were waiting for us to arrive and fully assisted us by phone in finding the house. GPS is not always dependable in Crete, because of the variety of unnamed mountain roads. They had a wonderful welcome lunch ready for us, totally unexpected and much appreciated. They were available to us on phone and text at all times. They are a lovely young welcoming couple. The house is very well kitted out , full kitchen facilities with some nice touches here and there. My wife won’t let me complain about the bed - says my weight is the real issue here ......

  • It's a pink house, leaning against the hill, you come on foot or by car, those who live there do not want to leave and I'll tell you why. The positive of the house: far from the superficial , she gives what she has best, its simplicity, its calm and the beauty of its site. Inside, the necessary and no superfluous. You can rest, meditate, watch the sea, get some energy ... the negative of the house: you have to leave ... !!! She is to all who seek what I have just spoken about. The hosts, George and Helleni ... generous, hospitable. Georges knows his area well and Helleni cooks well. In the land of the Zeus, it makes sense ... I highly recommend to the flanners, dreamers, who need authenticity ... thank you Georges and Helleni

  • romantic hidden place on a hill with a great view and lovely kittens.

    Norbert2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience of staying in an amazing and comfortable place with a wonderful landscape. George and Heleni are very kind and very good cookers. I love their cuisine

    Paolo2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Apartment rather spacious and quiet, beautiful view! Despite a very windy evening, the night stay at George's was very nice. The price quality ratio is more than honest

    Thomas2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • George's welcome is more than perfect. The accommodation conforms to the description in an exceptional place, a real pleasure to dine on the terrace watching the night fall on the sea. George is an encyclopedia on the history of Crete and shared his love for his island and gave us lots of tips on tours and beaches. Thanks again to George and his wife for our stay.

    Cecile2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Unforgettable impression. The house, in which there are two apartments, stands separately from everyone on the hill, which offers stunning views of the bay and the sea. 9 minutes by car to one of the most spectacular beaches of Crete, Vai, located in a palm grove. Incredibly hospitable hosts, we spent a wonderful evening on the terrace, with food, wine and stories about Cretan legends and myths. The apartments themselves are tastefully decorated in a traditional style. Yorgo and Lena, thank you very much!

    Elena2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Georges is super welcoming. Full of advice for local tours. A great meal with his wife one night. Thank you ! the place is set amongst olive trees on a hill. Beautiful moonrise!

    Florian2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at vrachos! Beautiful apartment with terrace and amazing view! George was very helpful and had great recommandations about what to do in the area. The check in was easy, even though we came very late. He was flexible with check in and check out. The room is perfect for two persons. I would not recommend to stay with a third adult since the third "bed" is more like a couch. With a child no problem I guess. All together: 100% recommended. Very natural (no wifi) and lots of privacy since there are no other houses around. And there are three kittens ;)

  • Eric's place is very comfortable and well-located. Eric is among the best hosts I've met because of his kindness, accuracy and attention for the travellers. He offers quite a lot of local tips and shows you the whole location, making it quite easy to get familiar with the local amenities the first moment you arrive. Our stay there was pleasant, and the next time we visit Crete, Eric's apartment is for sure a place we'll stay in again.

    Diana2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and nice accommodation. Extremely attentive and very friendly host . To privilege for the people who wish to meet the hosts.

    Jean-Luc2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Eric is one of the best hosts we've experienced! He gave us super hints where to go and what we could do. He's very helpful, always available and simply a cool guy. The area around Reddoorcorner is quiet but at the same time there is everything in a few meters distance (supermarkets, bakery, tavernas, butcher, etc). We totally enjoyed our time at Reddoorcorner and recommend it to everyone!

    Philip2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoyed my stay at Red Door Corner very much. 😊 Eric is very friendly, hospitable, and helpful. I can recommend him as a host.

    Raad2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • We only stayed 2 days / 3 nights with Eric but we had an amazing time! When we arrived we got a warm and kind welcome with a little tour through the cute village. Eric was a great host and always happy to help! The appartment is such a cute little home, equipped with everything you need. There are several mini markets in the village and different bars and restaurants. The beaches are very close. If you would like to spend some time in an „original“ Cretan atmosphere, this is the place to be. Thank you Eric for your kindness and support! It was great meeting you and we’re already looking forward to coming back!

    Madeleine2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Villa very well equipped and in accordance with the photos; comfortable and enjoying an exceptional view and a warm welcome.

    Christian2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Stay in couple. The house is top, well equipped, maintained, very quiet, the view is superb, we do not get tired. Palekastro is 5 minutes drive and the beaches including Vai too. Giwrgos can not do enough for you. The house is clean and neat, you have to take into account, it's not an all terrain AirBnB, you have to be cautious. Important point to take into account, the wind. Overall, it did not bother us as it avoids the heat and keeps mosquitoes and wasps away. On the other hand, some days, it blows. The parties for eating outside are well sheltered but the pool and the garden are in the wind. The pool is nice, the temperature of the sea. There is an optional Jacuzzi. In short, we had a great week.

    Florent2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic house with a great view that is never bored. Lovely (small) swimming pool and nice outdoor area for eating and bbq. The beds and bathroom are slightly less but for a week no problem. We are happy to come again!

    Frank2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Aiolos has been an exceptional address in many ways. The reception of Giorgos' father, Giannis, was excellent, with many touches of attention. Place perfectly clean, very well kept, tastefully decorated, whether inside or outside with beautiful plants and a fig tree with juicy fruit. The view of Kouremenos bay and its windsurfers, as well as the surrounding hills and olive groves, is breathtaking. The brand new pool was very popular! The house is located on a mountain ridge and therefore exposed to the winds that can be violent in the area in summer, but its very well thought configuration makes it not a problem at all: you can eat outside at the shelter gusts. Finally, even without air conditioning and at the height of summer, the temperature inside remains very pleasant for a little airy. There are many beaches or coves within a few minutes drive from the house (Vai, Ermoupoli, Maridatis) and the Zakros Gorge are 30 minutes drive. There are excellent restaurants in Palaiokastro but also on Kouremenos beach. In short, we loved our stay, and would recommend this address to anyone who would like to build unforgettable memories of a very nice part of the eastern Cretan coast.

    Tangi2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Nice location with beautiful beaches nearby. A wonderfully peaceful place!

    Ann2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • During our trip around the east coast of crete, we stayed three days at "Vila Aiolos" - sadly, only three days. It was wonderful and much better than expected - the villa, the beaches (e.g. Erimoupolis and Psili Ammos) and the sea dweller around Kouremenos! The view from the terrace is gorgeous. We had a very friendly welcome by Giannis, which is Giwrgos vather, we think. He and his wife are owning the villa since many years and they are constantly working on it and putting love into every detail. So we treated everything with as much respect as we could - and enjoyed it likewise. Even Kouremenos is the surfing spot of crete and "Vila Aiolos" is built on a hill, it is not windy while sitting on the terrace. Giannis told us everything to know about the house (handle the doors and windows, warm water, using wifi - it's a little, portable device and has a limited contingent, but it was sufficient for us -, the grill, the optional outdoor-shower, automatic gate etc.), gave us very useful infos about beautiful beaches and places to visit and there were water, raki, fruits, honey, butter, showering gels, cleaning agents etc. for us also, even a binocular to have a closer look over the valley. The bed is very comfy and we could directly see the ocean from within. It's very quiet there, day and night, and a mini-market is only 5 minutes away (by car) at Palekastro. Although the kitchen and bathroom could use a renovation, we would return any time.

  • Incredible whereabout ! On the top of the hill, with an absolute gorgeous view on the sea and all around ! Close to the beach and warm welcome ! We had a lovely time there. Very comfortable house. We loved the figs, the prickly pears and the shower outside.

    Kouremenos, Greece

    The house is located in the center of Achladia village. It offers great view to Sitia bay, from the balcony . Its location gives the opportunity to the traveller to explore the east part of Crete. The place is wonderful for those who are looking for a quiet place in summertime, away from the noisy beaches, or at any time of the year. The town of Sitia and Sitia beach are at 9kms distance, though.
    The house is a little maisonette of about 65 cm2. The kitchen lies on the ground floor. A dishwasher, a sandwich maker, a digital kitchen scale, a multi-mixer, a frappe coffee mixer and a greek coffee maker (gazaki) are available, among other equipment. In the dining room, a sofa of size 1.90 x .70m can be used by one person to sleep. The bath also lies on the ground floor. On the upper floor, there are two bedrooms, separated by a door which can be locked. A double bed in the first bedroom is of size 1.94 x 1.30m. The sofa-bed in the second bedroom is of size 1.82 x 1.10m.
    During your stay, you can visit the traditional cafenio, opposite the house, as well as another taverna/cafenio in the village. You can have a coffee there or a raki (local spirit) which is served with a meze (an assortment of small dishes which accompany your raki). Both places are worth going as you can taste there the local food specialties. Families with kids of any age, would feel safe to let them play outside and get to know the local kids. Especially in summer time, they all gather every evening at the old-school yard and everybody is welcome to join the company. The district of Sitia has a considerable olive oil production of excellent quality. You will be able to taste and cook with olive oil of our own production, during your stay in Achladia.
  • We are very happy! The house was even more beautiful than we expected, the atmosphere in the village is quiet and calm and the view to the mountains and sea is amazing. Betty was very friendly since the beginning and always open for questions. Her cousin who showed us the house was also extraordinary helpful and welcoming, they both even helped us with things not regarding our stay in the house. Thank you again! The house is clean, modern and lovingly furnished and decorated, which made it very easy to feel at home right away, it is literally perfect. There was everything we needed and wished for to have a more than pleasant stay. We felt warmly welcomed, as the people in the village are very friendly and kind too. The nearby city, Sitia, is a 15 minute drive away, which makes it a perfect distance to enjoy Sitia, but also the calm village life with fresh air, a stunning view and walks in the beautiful nature between olive trees and chirping birds. We are very happy to have found such a beautiful house with such a kind owner in this lovely paradise.

    Laurence2019-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • I spent two nights at Vaso's house with my two teenagers, around 19-20 July. Home really adorable, private apartment available is top too. The animals on the property are pretty funny; hens, turkeys and ducks are really not shy ... and even rather uncomfortable if you start feeding them. The honey produced by Vaso and her husband, as well as the organic olive oil of the property are also excellent ... and we brought back a few liters / kilos. The property is 5 minutes from the center of Palaikastro, 10 minutes from the beaches around Vai. Special mention for the restaurant '' Retro ''. After two weeks of Crete tour and 6 accommodations (including a hotel), our stay at Vaso was the best of the trip. Enjoy ...

  • A place a little outside the city on the heights. The landscape is really beautiful with its sea view. The interior is clean and functional. The warm welcome and the repeated attentions. The area really very beautiful. In short, a very nice stay at 4

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Vaso's. Close to Palekastro and yet secluded. Very clean and comfy, it was awesome. This location is off the main road which was nice because it was quiet and beautiful, we could see the stars. There are chickens and kitties roaming around and Vaso left some eggs for us, which we cooked in the outdoor wood stove. This location is also great to access Vai and Zakros, I would come again. :)

The Gorge of the Dead is 500 m away, while the beaches of Kato Zakros and those of Xerokampos are 7 and 9 km away respectively.
    Εδώ μπορείτε να ησυχάσετε, ακούγοντας μόνο τον άνεμο και τα τζιτζίκια. Here you can just relax - the only noise comes from the wind and the cicadas.
  • This place presented us with the opportunity to enjoy a small mountain village location with restaurants and shops for supplies but also be near to beaches. The apartment was perfect for two of us and we would book again. Thank you.

    Tim2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's place is a great place to reach beaches either north or south. The house clean and very well equipped. Maria and her mother are very kind and welcoming. We highly recommend it to any traveler who wants to visit this quiet side of the island. :-)

    Maro2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent welcome. Maria proved to be an exquisite host. We appreciated the attention that was shown to us. Mother's cake, fresh melon, availability. Maria's apartment is an excellent base for exploring the area.

    Edoardo2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • A really nice apartment in Zakros. It is perfect as a base to explore the beautiful beaches of Est Crete!

    Stefano2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great place very close to unique spots in Crete. And Maria and her family (including the cat) was lovely!! Looking forward to be back in Crete and in Maria's place at Zakros!!

    Carles2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed Maria's house in the countryside, the welcome and kindness of her parents very generous. Cupcakes, bread and jam all homemade as well as cold drinks in the fridge are the big plus brought to the home of Maria's family not to mention the fresh melon and graviera offered at breakfast before we leave. The situation of the house between Kato Zakros and Zakros, not far from Xerokampos (9km) is perfect. In August only the wind is permanent on the region and at night the noise is sometimes impressive: no need for hair after shower, just put on the balcony. A little cat newly arrived in the house has been busy playing. Very pleasant stay and too short alas!

    Isabelle2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • A cozy apartment nestled in the countryside and olive trees. Very clean with well organized spaces. Unfortunately, our stage included only one night, but we would have liked to have stayed another day. A quarter of an hour from some of the most beautiful beaches of Crete. Maria made us find everything we needed for a good breakfast. Really super recommended! ;)

    Elena2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is the second time we visit Maistros Appartments because of the great location and the nice hospitality. Maria's mother was very kind and offered us traditional treats (kalitsounia, mizithropites).

    Jonathan2017-09-06T00:00:00Z

    Itanos, Kriti, Greece

    Hiona Cottage is a very old stone building, idyllically placed at the water’s edge, overlooking the peaceful beach of Hiona at the extreme end of eastern Crete. At the north side is the famous beach of kouremenos with the wind surf stations.
    Το Hiona Cottage βρίσκεται σε ειδιλλιακό μέρος και προσφέρει την ξεγιασιά που προσφέρει η θάλασσα, η ανατολή και η δύση του ηλίου, οι ψαρόβαρκες αλλά και τον τόνο ζωής που προσφέρουν οι ψαροταβέρνες και η παραλία που βρίσκονται κοντά.
    Δίπλα από το Hiona Cottage είναι το Hiona Studio και αμέσως μετά είναι το εστιατόριο Hiona. Πιο πέρα και κατά μήκος της παραλίας βρίσκονται άλλες δύο ψαροταβέρνες που δίδουν ζωή στη διάρκεια της ημέρας. Το βράδυ και μέχρι την επομένη ημέρα υπάρχει πάντα μια απόλυτη ησυχία που μόνο το κύμα της θάλασσας ακούγεται.
  • The location is exactly as shown in the pictures. In the bay you can swim and watch fish in crystal clear water. Also, we enjoyed sitting in front of the house, to see the bay and the "green" and just let the soul. You can order something from the tavern next door. The apartment is functional and has mosquito net, which you can use if necessary. Since the house belongs to the hotel, you can use the pool and the tennis court. In addition, even between cleaning and there are fresh towels. We were welcomed very friendly and uncomplicated and got very good tips for trips and taverns. Thank you, we had a wonderful week!

    Almut2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Three things define the value of real estate: Location, location, and location. And that's why this place is just great. You can't get any closer to the sea. You fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up when the morning sun shines through the window. The taverna next door disturbs the romantic picture a bit with guests coming and going, but on the other hand you just have to walk a few meters if you get hungry. The food is good, but a bit pricey. If you expect to get fresh and cheap fish anywhere on Crete, think again. I guess there is not much fish left in the mediterranean sea. The place has two rooms with double beds and two bunk beds just above the stairs. We were 4 adults and a 5 year old kid and had enough space to be comfortable. The staircase is very narrow and requires a bit of agility. The kitchen area is small, but functional and sufficient. Note that the temperature scale on the oven is in Fahrenheit, not Celsius. The tap water is good to drink, so you don't need to buy bottled water. We didn't notice any water supply restrictions like for example in Heraklion. Watch your head if you're taller than 170cm. I'm 183cm and have hit my head a few dozen times on the cabinet above the sink and the door frame to the lower bedroom. All in all it was a great vacation and my wife is nagging me to book next year already. We will surely come again.

    Michael2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, calm. Wasn't bothered by noise from the next door tavern. The cottage contains all you need. The old building give the place a special atmosphere. Spacious beach nearby with clear water. Child friendly as it's quite shallow waters. Also many fish to watch if you like scubadiving.

    William2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely cottage with a spectacular view. We loved our stay here and we would love to come back. The location were magnificant.

    Pia2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house is as described, has a special charm for location and structure. Quiet beach, clean sea and with a little imagination sitting in front of the house you can see the palaces of Roussólakkos appearing behind the beach.

    Eros2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Heaven exists, we stayed there! In addition to a unique view, impregnable and valuable on the sea, the little attentions of the owner touched us. Delicious homemade cake on arrival. Menage done twice in six days. Very nice and spacious rooms. Equipped kitchen. Nothing is missing. At Aristides, sleeping in the open window is a pleasure. We are lulled by the sound of the sea. And what about the sunrise at dawn! All 200 meters from one of the most remarkable Minoan sites !!!! Super start for all walks. Possibility of bathing at the foot of the cottage. Sandy beach at 100 meters! Thanks thanks thanks ! We have never rented such a paradise! ❤️

    Fanny2018-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • At Chiona cottage we have enjoyed a beautiful holiday. The first evening after the arrival surprised the tavern next to the accommodation. But in the morning everything was right. Almost empty beach, which can be reached in 2 minutes. The sea is literally across the road and the beach is sandy with a slight slope that is ideal for both children and good swimmers. The city is a 5-minute drive or a 25-minute walk away. Buy here is all you need. Whenever there was a problem, communication was absolutely flawless and fast. For the first time we got cakes and homemade eggs with local spirits, from a very kind gentleman who came to personally apologize for the problem of a malfunctioning pump. We recommend this place and thank you for your beautiful holiday.

    Samuel2018-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute cottage with a splendid view of the sea, Small negative point the tavern that is stuck to the cottage with the passage in front of the terrace of all customers especially in the evening ... Tavern very busy at this time of the year! Nevertheless an address that I recommend for its location !!

  • Despina is really kind and punctual. The apartment is splendid ... the wonderful terrace. I found all the necessary comforts and impeccable cleanliness. The location is excellent, both as a starting point for the various beaches of the eastern part of the island, and to walk to the promenade full of restaurants.

    Riccardo2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Despina is a wonderful person and a great hostess. She gave us tips for the best beaches in Sitia and where to eat and have a drink. The apartment is located downtown so you have access to anything you might need. From mini-market to pharmacy etc. It is fully equipped and very clean. The nearest beach is 15 minutes walk but you need a vehicle if you wish to discover the true beauty of Sitia and East Crete. The best of all is the persons we met and made friends with. Thank you Despina!

    Dimosthenis2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • There was 3 of us. We stayed for 4 dayis in Despina's place. First of all Despina is an outstanding host, but not only a good host but also a nice person. So about the place: +++ location is perfect for Sitia (5 mins to bus station, quay , restaurants, cafes, and 2 supermarkets, just infront of the house is convinient minimart). We were without a car so the location was brilliant for us and the view is almost 360 degreese!!! The place itself is so cozy, beautiful and airy! Theres aircon in every room but you don't need it - just open the windows and enjoy the Creetan breeze... Kitchen was convinient to make light meals and breakfasts. Good stable wifi. - - - There's only 2 things: 1st theres no option to refill your own eco-bottle for water, tap water is not suitable to drink and you have to buy a water in plastic bottle... to be clear, I'm eco-friendly person and always trying do my best to reduce the plastic waste even if it recycable. I'm travelling more than 10 months in the year in different places, counltries and it was first time for last year I have to buy a water in plastic bottle (ususally there's an opion: filter for water in the house, or reusable 20litres gallons). That was trully sad for me. The best thing people can do with plastic - do not buy, reduse the usage of it. 2nd is more about the specific location of the place. We didn't use the aircon due to good ventilation from the windows, but the street downstairs is busy road, so there are always lot of noise in day and at night time. But there's the option to close the windows and sleep with aircon.)

    Ksenia2019-07-24T00:00:00Z

    Traditional stone arch house.
    Tucked away in a quiet lane this old stone house is one of the few historic houses of this age left in the village. Set back behind wrought iron gates in its own courtyard where in times gone by the village gathered around it's massive bread oven to bake the village bread. Now sympathetically renovated into a cosy one bedroom romantic home. It has a living area downstairs with a traditional Cretan stone arch as well as a traditional kitchen and bathroom overlooking the garden. Upstairs is a fully air conditioned bedroom with doors leading out to a spacious roof terrace. Outside there is a large patio area in a large garden ideal for alfresco dining and the large pagoda gives shade throughout the day. The house is ideal for a romantic break with it's charm and history but has all the modern conviences including full wi-fi, music system and local guide books. There is no TV ! It is in a stunning location close to some of the best unspoilt beaches in Crete and gives a glimpse of the traditional greek life from a bygone era and lets you relax into the pace of village life.

  • Place to recommend to everyone. The kindness of the hosts is great, the paradise garden, the house very beautiful and very quiet. The surroundings are magical and the people very hospitable.

    Alain2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful week in an authentic Cretan village home! The Arch House is beautifully modernized for comfort (without compromising it's historic ambiance) and has a glorious garden & porch for outdoor living. We appreciated Harry & Eleni's warm hospitality and enjoyed being able to hike, visit archeological sites, and spend time on lovely beaches nearby... as well as just relax in the peaceful setting. Highly recommend this unique airbnb stay!

    Mary Lynn2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic week in Zakros. Eleni and Harry are very kind hosts. The communication was great. Zakros is a very special quiet place to relax. The house and equipment are fabulous. We were warmly welcomed and got great recommendations for activities, beaches and food. We will definitely be back!

    Robert2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • The best house in Zakros. The house is charming, the living room, the kitchen and the room very comfortable. They have all kinds of details: cake, te, coffee. In the bathroom there is shampoo, conditioner, gel. The town square is 1 minute walk and you have shops where you can find everything. The best of the house is the garden, for breakfast, dinner or relax after a day at the beach. Harry is a perfect host. A house of 10, we will return. Thanks a lot

    Coro2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Eleni and Harry have an amazing house in old Zachros. They honor Greek hospitality through many attentions. The scenery is breathtaking on the terrace. Kitchen is traditional and adorable. The main room is genuine, very cozy and gives that incredible homely feeling. Sleeping room is calm with a good mattress and AC. Make sure to close all shutters as white paint illuminates intensely through all opened windows. Checking is a meet and greet. Make sure to fix a schedule for your arrival.

    Amaury2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • The house is simply delicious: both the structure and the furnishings contribute to giving the home a complete welcoming flavor. Both the good taste of the interior and the lovely garden with a flowery pergola make the stay a real pleasure. The location is strategic for those who want to explore the east coast of Crete: geographically central, it allows, in less than an hour, to move both on the north and south coasts. The reception is impeccable: extremely courteous, it immediately puts you at ease. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and the cleaning of the house is perfect. An address to say the least fantastic!

    Matteo Maria2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • the Arch house is wonderful with thoughtful décor and facilities. Harry was a very organised and welcoming host with great directions and friendly hosting skills. The location although not on the coast is only 10 minutes from beautiful beaches and the local beach tavernas served the best food!. We had a very comfortable stay with all our needs met from maps to homemade cake. we will definitely recommend to the rest of our family and hopefully go back ourselves. Five stars all-round.

    Simon2019-08-10T00:00:00Z

  • At the end of September / beginning of October we spent a wonderful hiking and bathing holiday in the extreme east of Crete. Manolis accommodation was the perfect basis for that. It is located a bit out of the village, but within walking distance to the beaches and offers everything you need for a stay for two. In the photos you can not see a small terrace with table and two chairs, where you can have breakfast or relax with a glass of wine. In the village itself you will find everything you need for self-sufficiency in the mini markets. In the evening, however, can also enjoy the wonderful Greek cuisine and hospitality in various taverns of the place. We were particularly impressed by the warm hospitality of the landlord, combined with the one or other hint for seeing and experiencing.

From the host there are also delicious olive oil, grapes and cucumbers from their own production as a gift. Very tasty, we were very happy with the stay and will gladly come back.

  • We absolutely loved everything about our stay in the Villa Fuego Sagrado apartment. Manolis is an amazing host, friendly, kind and communicative, ready and willing to give all details about how to reach any place of our backet list. His apartment is a dream, spotless clean, with amazing view to the sea, exceeding undoubtedly our expectations. The apartment's location is outstanding, in a quite, uncrowded region to avoid the noise of the city center, but not far from it to enjoy delicious traditional cretan dishes there every night (9 min driving distance). Although Chania is the most attractive destination in Crete, we felt that Sitia has the most cheerful and friendly Cretans you could hope to meet (Manolis is definetely one of them). We wouldn’t hesitate to return. Highly recommended to other guests!

  • Nice hostess who answers directly. She was also often in the plant on site and looked to the right. We liked the pool quite well, which was also lit romantic in the evening. It is about 5 minutes walk from the village, so the area is very quiet. The place is pretty and there are great tavernas. In the surrounding area you can also plan great trips. We also liked that the apartments are built in a great style and the area is not that big. From some apartments you also have a good view. You should definitely take back mosquito spray, as there are some mosquitoes. All in all, it was relaxed.

    Marcel2019-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay with the pool and all the great places to visit within 20 minutes drive Quiet and well equipped Well sign, but the road is narrow in the hamlet. A nice favorite

    Παλαίκαστρο, Λασιθίου, Greece

    A combination of traditional and modern. Fully furnished with utmost attention to detail. The house lies within an estate surrounded by flowers, palm trees, an olive grove, a vineyard and various fruit trees. Quite and secluded, close to the sea. Located in a group of three independent appartments.
    You will be welcomed by a colorful bougainvillea tree that decorates the front terrace. An immaculately furnished appartment with total area of 75sqm consisting of a dining/living room, fully equipped kitchen (with dishwasher) , 2 bedrooms accommodating 4 guests (one double bed, two single beds), a bathroom with shower and washing machine, two terraces (one facing south east and the other north west). There is a flat screen TV with USB and VDSL internet access (WIFI). There is a sattelite receiver with all major European networks.
    The house is situated 5 kilometers from the town of Sitia and the local airport and 350 metres from the seashore. The local beach is 4km away while other magnificent beaches are situated 20-40 minutes drive. A few words about Sitia region Sitia is a town situated in the far east of Crete, in the prefecture of Lasithi. It lies to the east of Aghios Nikolaos and to the northeast of Ierapetra. It lies in a region unspoiled by mass tourism. Even during the busy summer peak, Sitia retains a certain charm and laid-back style. In the town but especially in the region's villages you will enjoy authentic Cretan cuisine made with quality local olive oil and other local produce. During the day you can enjoy swimming and sunbathing in Sitia beach or in the numerous untouched beaches lying towards the Eastern tip of the island. What to do in Sitia For history and archaeology enthusiasts, Sitia's archeological museum display's exhibits dating back to the Neolithic era in 3,500 BC while the medieval fortress of Kazarma, situated at the top of Sitia is a reminder of the town's medieval past. Furthermore, the folklore museum exhibits items from the past century such as weavings, woodcuts and other everyday life items. During the evening you can visit one of the numerous small restaurants ("Rakadika") situated along the town's fishing port, which serve delicious variety plates along with Cretan spirit "Raki". And if you are up to it you can continue your night out until the early morning hours in one of the local bars and clubs. What to do in the region Archaeology / History / Religion On your way to Vai and Erimoupoli you will pass from the monastery of Toplou. Here you can visit the monastery's museum with items dating back to the Ottoman empire period up to the Second World War. In Erimoupoli bay you can visit the ruins of the ancient town of Itanos. Further to the south east, Zakros is one of the four major Minoan palaces unearthed in Crete. The ruins of the palace await you at the lower entrance of the Zakros gorge. Beaches To the east of Sitia lies Europe's only natural palm forest of Vai. In a short distance from Vai lies the bay of Erimoupoli with the ruins of the ancient town of Itanos. To the south east of the region lie the long sandy beaches and warm waters of Kserokambos . There are numerous other deserted beaches we can help you discover. Sports For windsurfing enthusiasts the world renowned Kouremenos beach is a must visit. The club offers equipment hire and lessons. For the hardcore athletes, the Faneromeni bay offers excellent wave conditions (depending on the weather). Here you will need to bring your own kit. Mountain bikes are a fun way to explore the region's endless olive groves. Spring and autumn is the best period for this since the weather is cooler during the day. Hiking The areas rugged terrain offers numerous gorges that are walkable with no special equipment. First and foremost the 4km Richti gorge, near the village of Mesa Mouliana will dazzle you with the year-round waterfalls and dense vegetation all the way down to a deserted beach. The 4.5km gorge of Zakros starts at the village of Ano Zakros and meets the sea next to the archaeological site of Kato Zakros. It is one of the most impressive gorges in Crete with steep sides and dramatic rock formations. It is also known as the Gorge of the Dead because ancient Minoans buried their dead in caves high up on the gorge's sides. The 3.5km Chochlakies or Karoumes gorge ends in the magnificent and isolated bay of Karoumes. Culinary Delights In Sitia's "Rakadika" and small taverns scattered in villages throughout the region you can try, apart from local meats, also some delicacies of the region cooked in locally produced olive oil, like "chochlious" (snails cooked either with tomato or vinegar and rosemary), "omaties" (stuffed pig intestines), "anthous" (stuffed courgettes) and other. When you visit Toplou don't forget to grab a bite in the monastery's small tavern and purchase organic products from the monastery's extensive agricultural produce (honey, olive oil etc).
  • Very nice house in a wonderful garden. Well located for trips to the east and south coast as well as for a city stroll and shopping in Sitia.

    Slavoljub2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • We spent three wonderful weeks at Bourgainvillea House and will be back next year. We would like to especially mention the warm care by father Lefteris and his wife, who have made our stay even more enjoyable through talks and information. The location of the house is unique and a good starting point for tours of eastern Crete, which is still very original.

    Brigitte2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is an extremely lovely house. A 10 minutes drive away from Sitia, where you find lots of nice restaurants and first beaches. There are lots of uncrowded wonderful beaches that you can reach by car. Welcome and support by Pantelis parents who live close by was great. With two bedrooms the house is perfect for 4 people. We would definitely come back!

    Roman2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place. Authentic and well kept. Quality home that is a great base for exploring eastern Crete. No problems with the home, a bit older but built with quality in mind and updated to keep things fresh. I highly recommend.

    Emmanuel2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • The best and spectacular place in Aghia Fotia . Very quiet in a nice garden .

  • Pantelis is a great host. His house is very pleasant to live. Pantelis is available for valuable advice.

    Emmanuel2019-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect stay, perfect house for a family. Good size inside the house, good équipement, so nice garden commune, my kids have loved it. Very quiet and a great hospitality and help from Pantelis’s parent

    Stephanie2019-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • The four of us had a wonderful week in the house of Pantelis. The house and the garden are very nicely maintained and also offer enough space for 2 adults with large children, seats and all of us desirable furnishings. Everyone can look for a shady or sunny spot at their own discretion. In autumn it was almost completely windy but the terrace in front of the house was always good for eating or reading. The house is in principle like a middle-row house between two further units on a large property between flowerbeds and fruit trees. Occasionally noisy vehicles were heard from the thoroughfare, but the location of the house to the "old road" to the rear let us mainly hear the sea on the rocky coast a few hundred meters away and the wind. Lefteris was a wonderful host who gladly explained everything to us and kept coming up with fresh fruit to try on. Arriving late in the evening was unproblematic, as was communication with Pantelis in advance. A large amount of travel information was provided by Pantelis and other travel guides were not actually necessary for a stay in eastern Crete! Everything we did or tried on suggestion of Pantelis or Lefteris were fantastic holiday experiences. The village of Agia Fotia itself had little to offer for us, even if the visit to the only open tavern "Dyonisos" in our time was better than noise level and menu had to hope. Sitia (about 5 km) has pleased us with many small shops and their manageable size very well. Rides to beautiful beaches or hiking destinations were possible in all directions, but as everywhere on Crete often with very winding stretches a bit exhausting, so we were (only) between Sitia and Kato Zakros on the way. We can very well imagine returning once again to the fantastic hospitality and the many undiscovered corners of Ostkreta and sitting again in the beautiful garden under palm trees.

    Built on the heights of Palekastro, it is the last house of the village before the olive groves stretching as far as the eye can see, giving it all the tranquility of a country house while being close to shops, restaurants and other essential facilities: pharmacy, bank, cafes.
    An old Cretan house full of history, La Maison sur la Colline, abandoned for a few years, was bought in 1989 by a couple of Parisians, hairdressers and lovers of travel and Crete. They make a first renovation "in its juice" and spend each year in the summer months, creating strong bonds of friendship with many villagers. The old couple of Parisians, now passed away, let the house to their son Jean-Philippe. He decided, not being able to benefit himself because of his professional obligations, to rent it. New facilities have been organized in order to improve the comfort and here it is ready to welcome travelers wishing to discover a place remained authentic although located on a quite tourist island.
    The Palekastro region offers a variety of walks, beaches, archaeological sites, mountain villages to visit and welcomes every year visitors looking for the right balance between tourist infrastructures (rooms and bungalows for rent, hotels and taverns, schools Windsurfing, bus service to the village ...) and a peaceful and preserved site with many sandy and pebble beaches untouched by organized activities. The nearest beach is Plakopoules, located in the bay of Kouremenos which can be seen from the terrace of the house. To get there, just get off the hill and take the dirt road intersecting the olive groves, which represents a walk of about twenty minutes on foot or barely 5-6 minutes by car.
  • A great place specially the outdoor sitting area!

    Marie Lou2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • The house has a great charachter and a great atmosphere! Virginie is a super host, very helpful and willingfull to help with any problems. The house needs some more care, so it's price is fair for what it provides. I would difintely love to stay there again.

    George2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Virginie was very pretty and helpful. We spent three wonderful days in this simple but very cozy cottage.

    Valentina2018-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice little house, certainly in its juice as said Virginia, but so nice, in a charming and peaceful corner: no need for more! Ideally located to discover the east of the island Very warm welcome from Virginia. We would have liked to extend so much we were fine .....

    Isabelle2018-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • A place very exotic and authentic. The view is very beautiful. We had a happy stay. There are pretty little nooks in the house which is quite rustic and offers good bedding / a nice little kitchen and a shady patio. The region is bathed by the wind which gives a soft atmosphere during the heat. The surrounding beaches and nature are probably for everyone the opportunity to relax. The village is small but offers taverns / mini market and the shop of the hostess (really very very friendly) is worth a look especially for photographs.

    Sylvie2018-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Virginie is a great host and the house has an amazing outdoor space with a beautiful bougainvillea. Inside, it has an authentic traditional atmosphere which we loved. The location is perfect for short trips to all the nice beaches and taverns in the area. We had a wonderful time in the house and we are already planning our return there and to East Crete!

    Yannis2018-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place. Virginie helped us a lot and the village is lovely.

    Lea2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house location is superb: on the edge of the village with spectacular views of the olive groves and the sea. The area is quite windy, but the house itself is very peaceful: you immerse yourself into the traditional Cretan vibe and feel the time slow down when you step in. The house is rustic, but comfortable. Kitchen has all the necessities; we cooked several delicious meals there and enjoyed them on the beautiful veranda. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. Highly recommended!

  • Malama really went above and beyond in making this a great stay!

    Neil2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a little further from the sea than other places, but still adjacent to the "main road" which takes you down to the harbour in about 10 minutes of walking. Very clean space and great balcony view, along with of course Malama, being a very lovely and helpful host!

    Victor2019-08-27T00:00:00Z

  • The owner is very friendly, always with a smile and is willing to help! The location is very good. On the plus side is that the bathroom is private and the price of the room is very good. One downside is that when you bathe in the bathroom, the whole area is flooded. But there is always the option to put a towel outside the door so that the water-mud room does not fill up afterwards.

    Eirini2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Malama's seems to be a wonderfull personality, she wasn't there during my trip so I've met a friend or her that was also so nice! Malama's take care of me lot of time and seems really concerned about my trip, her flat is verry nice and also very close to the best place of the city and the beach! Thank you so much for letting me stay in your flat! (Ps : your guitar sounds verry nice!) I would definitely recommend this place!

  • We loved Maria’s place in the middle of an olive grove, up of the hills, 5 min drive from a nice village of Paliokastro. The house has character and everything you need for a comfortable stay. The space is just enough for a family of 4 with younger kids as the beds in the mezzanine level are under a sloping roof, not good for very tall people. The host is very quick to respond and answered all our questions when we had them, the welcome bottle of wine and the pomegranates was a nice touch of hospitality. The location is fantastic - seclusion and privacy but very close to all the interesting sites around. Our kids enjoyed watching the starts at night. The village has a butcher shop, fish market, min markers, a nice bakery and several good tavernas.

    Ekaterina2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • The villa was very nice and had a huge living area with a table that could host big families. It was great having our own little villa in the middle of an olive grove with a lovely interior. Maria’s mother warmly welcomed us and showed us everything. We were welcomed with homemade wine, plenty of raki and fresh eggs. Communication was easy and Maria responded promptly. We arrived there at night so we struggled a bit finding the property in the first place but otherwise, it was just a great experience.

    Judith2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • The Villa was really wonderful, in a fully quiet area, very peaceful and restful. It was very pleasant to sit on the terrace and just relax, watching the olive trees. We felt as if we were at home. The Villa was well located, allowing visiting easily the East part of Crete. Maria was really nice with us, providing us with her support at any time on the phone. A big thanks, I hope to come again one day in this nice place. Frédéric

    Frédéric2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed a week and everything went smoothly. The hosts were incredibly kind. Their daughter Maria speaks perfect English, which facilitates communication. The place is very quiet and peaceful, the view is splendid. The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking, we did not miss anything. Everything was clean when we arrived. The photos are in accordance with the villa. One small downside: the bed could be more comfortable. We recommend without hesitation. Thank you for everything.

    Nancy2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in East Crete! Isolated but not far from the village palekastro and all the beautiful beaches of East Crete.

    Ali2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location in the middle of the olive grove, we enjoyed the house exceptionally well!

    Andrea2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience at the Olive Grove Villa. Maria and her family are excellent hosts! Their genuine hospitality was heartwarming and greatly appreciated throughout our stay. The villa is situated in a very quiet area, in the middle of an Olive Garden, which allowed for peaceful relaxation and privacy. The house was fully equipped during our stay - TV, wifi, a fridge, warm water, kitchenware, stove, beds and linens, to name a few. The house did not have air conditioning but it was NOT NEEDED as the breeze kept us very cool! The place is less than 7 minutes away from a local beach, a mini mart, and restaurants. Roughly 20+ mins away from B’AI beach. Maria was very responsive before and during our stay. She was able to answer our questions and offer us suggestions for activities. BOOK THIS VILLA IF YOU HAVE A CHANCE! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

The view from the balcony is so peaceful: we could have stayed watching all day. The location is very good for touring around Eastern Crete. Most places within 1 hour drive. Apartment is modern and clean although we found the bed quite hard.

  • This is a very modern, tastefully decorated house in a picturesque tranquil setting. It is located within a few minutes drive from Sitia, very easy to find, right off a paved road. The house is so well insulated that in +30C (86F) there was no need for AC. A kitchen is well equipped. A balcony provides phenomenal view of olive grove and the see. The location is very secluded providing privacy and serene views, perfect for a relaxing stay, away from commotion and tourist crowds. Massimo and Despina are very pleasant and helpful hosts, discrete but available if you have questions. We loved our stay in their house and highly recommend it.

  • In an exceptional location with olive groves and the Aegean Sea and its intense blues, the apartment is very well equipped and offers a certain comfort ideal for a stay in Crete. Massimo and Despina are such nice and discreet hosts, this does not detract from their availability. No language problem with them. The value for money is unbeatable, we recommend to all those who would like to discover the East side of Crete, because from Sitia we were able to shine until Iérapetra, Zakros and Kato Zakros, Agio Nikolaos and Spinalonga, a Crete quite different only the center and west side that does not lack charm. We stayed 8 days and almost regretted leaving,

  • At the ADORABLE FARM HOUSE you will spend a holiday of peace and cool climate, guaranteed by a pleasant natural ventilation. This apartment is located in a hillside location surrounded by olive trees but only two minutes from the town of Sitia with all the services available. In addition, the apartment which is equipped with all comforts, has its own and unique relevance a spacious and always shaded, terrace overlooking the sea. You can and will use it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The spaces are ideal for a couple but can also be adapted to four people if they are familiar. Moreover the beaches are very close 5 minutes by car both the most served and a very wild couple that reflect the peaceful and hospitable local way of life. Then having the good fortune of being able to move with a rental car exploring the area you will reach all the classic and beautiful postcard beaches that are many and for all tastes! We recommend first of all a short stay in Heraklion and surroundings to visit the beautiful and historic Crete but you will invest very well the 2 hours of car needed to reach the fantastic Adorable Farm House location "dispenser of pills" in relaxation and wellness. PS. You will be assisted by two SUPER-SUPER Hosts! ALL SERVICES HAVE BEEN EXCELLENT.

A few words about Sitia region Sitia is a town situated in the far east of Crete, in the prefecture of Lasithi. It lies to the east of Aghios Nikolaos and to the northeast of Ierapetra. It lies in a region unspoiled by mass tourism. Even during the busy summer peak, Sitia retains a certain charm and laid-back style. In the town but especially in the region's villages you will enjoy authentic Cretan cuisine made with quality local olive oil and other local produce. During the day you can enjoy swimming and sunbathing in Sitia beach or in the numerous untouched beaches lying towards the Eastern tip of the island. What to do in Sitia For history and archaeology enthusiasts, Sitia's archeological museum display's exhibits dating back to the Neolithic era in 3,500 BC while the medieval fortress of Kazarma, situated at the top of Sitia is a reminder of the town's medieval past. Furthermore, the folklore museum exhibits items from the past century such as weavings, woodcuts and other everyday life items. During the evening you can visit one of the numerous small restaurants ("Rakadika") situated along the town's fishing port, which serve delicious variety plates along with Cretan spirit "Raki". And if you are up to it you can continue your night out until the early morning hours in one of the local bars and clubs. What to do in the region Archaeology / History / Religion On your way to Vai and Erimoupoli you will pass from the monastery of Toplou. Here you can visit the monastery's museum with items dating back to the Ottoman empire period up to the Second World War. In Erimoupoli bay you can visit the ruins of the ancient town of Itanos. Further to the south east, Zakros is one of the four major Minoan palaces unearthed in Crete. The ruins of the palace await you at the lower entrance of the Zakros gorge. Beaches To the east of Sitia lies Europe's only natural palm forest of Vai. In a short distance from Vai lies the bay of Erimoupoli with the ruins of the ancient town of Itanos. To the south east of the region lie the long sandy beaches and warm waters of Kserokambos . There are numerous other deserted beaches we can help you discover. Sports For windsurfing enthusiasts the world renowned Kouremenos beach is a must visit. The club offers equipment hire and lessons. For the hardcore athletes, the Faneromeni bay offers excellent wave conditions (depending on the weather). Here you will need to bring your own kit. Mountain bikes are a fun way to explore the region's endless olive groves. Spring and autumn is the best period for this since the weather is cooler during the day. Hiking The areas rugged terrain offers numerous gorges that are walkable with no special equipment. First and foremost the 4km Richti gorge, near the village of Mesa Mouliana will dazzle you with the year-round waterfalls and dense vegetation all the way down to a deserted beach. The 4.5km gorge of Zakros starts at the village of Ano Zakros and meets the sea next to the archaeological site of Kato Zakros. It is one of the most impressive gorges in Crete with steep sides and dramatic rock formations. It is also known as the Gorge of the Dead because ancient Minoans buried their dead in caves high up on the gorge's sides. The 3.5km Chochlakies or Karoumes gorge ends in the magnificent and isolated bay of Karoumes. Culinary Delights In Sitia's "Rakadika" and small taverns scattered in villages throughout the region you can try, apart from local meats, also some delicacies of the region cooked in locally produced olive oil, like "chochlious" (snails cooked either with tomato or vinegar and rosemary), "omaties" (stuffed pig intestines), "anthous" (stuffed courgettes) and other. When you visit Toplou don't forget to grab a bite in the monastery's small tavern and purchase organic products from the monastery's extensive agricultural produce (honey, olive oil etc).

The apartment was very clean and equipped with everything you need (including oil, vinegar, spices, real stove with oven, etc.).

  • Dear Michael, Many thanks to you and your wife Venetia and to your uncle Antoni for the immeasurable hospitality in your accommodation. The neighborly support with beer, wine and one of the best omelets we have ever eaten remain next to the perfectly furnished apartment with many lovely details in the memory. We have seen that the renovation of the house has been done with great care and attention to detail. Bathroom kitchen and bedroom as well as the living room let it miss nothing. Bravo!! A lot of the apartment we liked so much that we were sad to drive out of the beautiful and varied area again and we would like to come back. It is a great base to explore the east of the island. In addition to the tranquility you have the varied landscape with fantastic beaches with the possibility to go hiking.

    Dietrich2019-09-09T00:00:00Z

  • Mandarini house is the perfect choice for those who decide to visit the eastern part of the island. This is one of the most beautiful houses I have ever chosen thanks to AirBnB. The apartment is very clean and well furnished. Michalis and Venetia have really thought of every comfort for their guests. It would be the best if there was a nice barbecue outside :) If only I could, I would definitely stay there again.

    Camilla2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • A very typical house beautifully restored (bedding of very good quality and beautiful bathroom), very pleasant to live. A perfect place to rest and explore the sites, beaches and restaurants of the area, always taking advantage of the valuable advice of Venetia and Michalis. A real favorite !
