Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • A beautiful place to be. Salverio is a very friendly and easy going host.
    It was a pleasure to meet him and life in his apartment.
    It looks exactly like on his pictures.

  • Very nice apartment! Wonderful view from the balcony, nice cretan-styled interior. The apartment is located in a nice spot surrounded by nature but also not too far away from iraklio. Saverio is a very nice and helpful host. Altogether this apartment is very recommendable when you want to have a great time in crete!

  • This was a nice, reliable place to stay. Saverio was a responsive host. If you're interested in a cost-efficient place with a amazing view, great deck, and great jumping off location from which to explore central Crete, this is the place.

  • It was exactly what we expected. It was prettier than the pictures. Saverio was very helpful!

  • Brilliant host, knows the area to recommend what to do. I would recommend getting a car. Beautiful setting up from the coast, only 5 min drive to several beautiful beaches, away from all the chavvy tourists but still good restaurants etc nearby. Saverio is very friendly, helpful and lovely apartment.

  • Brilliant host and lovely apartment. Welcomed us with wine cheese and some brilliant stories! The area is lovely, would recommend renting a car if possible. Wonderful experience - couldn't recommend it enough!

  • Saverios apartment was just perfect. Very quiet, central to very nice beaches, beautiful view from the private terrace and very nicely decorated. He suggested two very good restaurants, was very helpful and even gave us a fine bottle of greek wine. We had a wonderful stay, very recommended!

  • Saverio was a great host and the flat was exactly as pictured. It is very convenient for stays near Heraklion (about 20 min drive) but expect to drive 2+ hours to explore the south of the island.

    September 2013
  • Great apartment, even more beautiful than in the pictures and a fantastic view! We had a wonderful time in Crete! Also Saverio is a good host, we arrived at 2 in the morning and got a little lost on the road, so he came and showed us the way! Thanks again!

  • Saverio was the consummate host. The apartment was exactly as shown in the photos. The added bonus was a huge deck and lovely table and chair sitting area. Beautiful view and so quiet. I found it a bit frustrating not having Wifi but survived!! The Happy Cretan Resort just a bit down the road worked fine and the Wifi was free so got my fix there. Definitely need a car or scooter. You are a long ways from the beach or village and about a 25 minute drive from the airport. It cost us 40 Euros for a taxi. Saverio arranged that for us which was so helpful. There is a super market not too far but down a steep and uneven road. The kitchen is very "minimal" not only in size but supplies so don't expect to make full course meals. Saverio was very attentive and we enjoyed our stay

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.
