The Neighborhood

It happens to us quite often, after being at home for a few days enjoying the house, the feeling that when you walk around the corner and say to yourself 'hey there are still other people in this place.' It’s quite strange that it can be so quite in the hart of the old town.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Staying at the Maison d'Hôtes Palia Porta was very nice. The apartment is very warm and comfortable, and can easily accomodate 4. The courtyard and terrace are very nice for having relaxing meals outside, or reading a book in the sun or shade. The hosts were extremely hospitable to us, with excellent breakfasts each morning, very friendly service, and were also very knowledgeable about many things to do during our stay in Crete.

  • Dominique and Eddie are truly the greatest hosts you can find ! Very gentle, accommodating and helpful. And we enjoyed the discussions with them ! We also did not expect to eat so good breakfasts (Dominique is a top-notch cook), and they even prepared us a traditional lunch to welcome us. The villa is very calm, yet right in the center of Rethymnon, which is a very charming city. You'll definitely have a great stay here ! Thank you Dominique and Eddie from all the team.

  • Magic lovely place in the heart of Rethimno! This nice house filled up with positive energy of Dominique's family. And next day after arriving we felt like we were at our own home among our friends, so warm and charming atmosphere was there.
    Welcome dinner was outstanding, very tasty, we were really impressed!
    Dominique preparing breakfasts, every day so different and nice, and you can be so full that you'll forget about lunches, and will go out only for dinner - there are a lot of nice restaurants around.
    Thank you, Dominique, Eddy & Stephanie!!!

    Vladimir, thank you so much ! It was our pleasure to welcome you and got to know you ! Feel free to visit us any time you want !

  • Palia Porta is a little treasure hidden in the old town of Rethimon. Close to everything interesting (beach, shops, museum, restaurants...) but very quiet, you will have a real appartement on your own, with all you need to have a great journey. Dominique, Eddy and Stephanie are very kind and helpfull in many ways, very discret people too, and they preprare you a wonderful breakfast to begin your day with a smile.
