Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Good place to rest, eat,talk and relax, nice guesthost. Clean and warm house. When you want to walk and climb I would recommend a location more central. A car is a must.

  • Studio très agréable à vivre, très chaleureux avec une vue magnifique sur la mer au réveil avec 2 terrasses.

    A noter que le logement est référencié à Héraklion alors qu'il est en fait à Agia Pelagia (20 kms). Ce petit village est situé au bord d'une mer turquoise et doté de nombreux restaurants et magasins.

    Notre seul regret sera de ne pas avoir rencontré Saverio. Il aura été quand même aux petits soins pour nous.

    Séjour parfait. Que de bons souvenirs.

  • Amazing setting for a cosy, bright and well decorated little flat.
    To have had breakfast every morning at the front of the house in the middle of the olive trees or a drink on the balcony with the sea view was such a luxury and will remain memorable moments.
    Saverio was the most welcoming, warm, helpful and easy host.
    His olive oil is a delight and he recommended us an incredible little taverna tucked in the mountain.
    It was quite a perfect stay thanks to him and his beautiful place! Grazie mille Saverio, Pauline and Vincent

  • We had a great time in Saverios place. It's a nice appt and he's a kind and helpful host. I'd recomment you to stay there.

  • Wonderful appartment. Wonderful seaview. Wonderful landscape. Hope to come back next year and enjoy another stay with a very pleasant host.

  • The house is lovely - beautiful views over the Aegean Sea, with a lovely breeze and sunlight through the place. We had a car which made it easy to get to beautiful beaches and sites around the area. There is a market and town nearby. The kitchen has most things you need and we cooked a few meals and enjoyed them on the lovely big balcony. Saverio was a great host and we enjoyed using his home grown olive oil in the kitchen! We travelled with our 4 year old son and the only reason I didn't give the place 5 stars is that its probably not big enough for more than 2. The additional beds are in the kitchen/living area which is not ideal if you don't want to go to bed when your kids do! But overall a lovely experience we highly recommend.

  • L'endroit est central pour plusieurs visites .
    Une plage authentique et conviviale à proximité.
    Accueil de Saverio généreux, en toute simplicité, convivialité, à l'image de ce magnifique pays.
    On reviendra pour continuer à découvrir toute la beauté de cette île.

  • Great place to rest in the middle of olive trees! Very well decorated. And Saverio is a very good host, always willing to help you with wathever you may need.
    But I highly recommend you to rent a car because you have to walk 30 minutes to get to the beach/village. And on your way back to the house the path is very steep. Also there are only 3 buses to Heraklion everyday (phone number hidden)).

Chef cuisinier
Saverio is a globetrotting chef with a passion for nature,travel, eating, drinking, good music, and the sweet life in the shade of my vine leaves.I have come to Crete in 2002 with my happy family, where we fell in love with her blue sky and its radiant sun. We bought this wonderful olive grove with stunning views on the Aegean . The fertile land where our ideas and dreams have become reality, our home, where we like to entertain and share with the lucky travelers who land on the mythical island of Crete. We look forward to a happy moment between the cicadas singing, watching the blue sea under the bright sun of Crete,sipping a glass of wine.
