This place is a true gem. From the food to the atmosphere both Lidian and Saveriako go farther than any Airbnb host I've come across and I have seen many. If you get the chance to stay with them I suggest you extend your trip because once you're there you won't want to leave. Come here to slow your life down and appreciate living life!

What an experience. Our stay at Savierko and Lidian's place was by far our favorite part of our Greek vacation. I can't recommend this airbnb enough. Calling it an airbnb, however, doesn't do it justice. Saveriako and Lidian have cultivated a unique experience. Part watering hole for international travelers (they manage 3 or 4 adjacent apartments), part fine dining establishment (Savierko offers breakfast and dinner to his guests daily, 7e and 15e respectively, at his bistro), and part isolated paradise, our visit was magical. During our stay we ate dinner with a yoga instructor from Australia, a family from Germany, and couple from Switzerland (not to mention the Italian chef himself, Savierko, and his lovely Dutch girlfriend, Lidian). Talk about something you don't get everyday (at least not in the U.S.). One of the biggest reasons my girlfriend and I chose Greece to visit was the food, and Saveriako does not disappoint. Combining some of the freshest ingredients you'll see in Greece (the ripest tomatoes, the sweetest melons, and the savoriest [is that a word? I'm going for it] prosciutto) and Saveriako's expect hand -- you're in for a damn treat come mealtime. The apartment is beautifully decorated, with a scenic balcony that overlooks the seaside village and rolling mountains. Their place is isolated, perfect for vacationers looking to escape from the hoards of tourists that visit Greece (and Crete in particular) every summer. One of my favorite memories was walking through the olive groves while the cicadas screamed bloody murder (they are deafeningly loud), followed by relaxing in one of the hammocks Saveriako set up between two olive trees and reading a book. My only complaint is that during the summer heat the apartment can get quite stuffy. A fan would have been much appreciated (or better yet, air conditioning -- but at some level that would diminish the authenticity of the experience). Overall, I can't recommend this place enough. If we ever go back to Greece, we'll definitely be coming back here.

Saveriako greeted us and actually gave us an apartment in his building that was on the top floor, so we had an incredible view for witnessing the sunrise and sunset each day, like being on top of the world! The apartment was clean and the outdoor space was lovely as well. His gave us olives he cured that were out of this world.

We spent a wonderful time at Lydia's and Saverienko's place. It is exactly how described online. The apartment is charming and creatively decorated and the view is stunning. Lydia no Saverienko are nice host and we enjoyed our chats with them. We strongly recommend their place!

I had a wonderful time at Saveriako's. The place is a gem and the accommodations met all my expectations and then some. I highly recommend to anyone staying near Heraklion. :)

I can describe Saverio's place in one sentence: beautiful with great character and insanely amazing view! I travelled with my mother - we both have different tastes when it comes to design and value of accommodation, yet we both fell in love with this charming and quiet paradise!
