The Studio is fully equipped with a double bed, its own kitchen and bathroom , television, fan and airconditioning. They are bright as the sun light breaks in through the windows and all studios look to a communal deck with jasmines and a diversity of plants and flowers all around.
You can prepare your coffee, teas and meals during the day as well as having treats from the landladies and cooking tips and recipes for Mediterranean cuisine.
Beautifully decorated every room has its own color and theme. Our Studios have always been known for the good clean up but one thing will be unforgettable here and that is a personal business of old cretan women sitting outside their houses speaking about the daily routine, family life and holding pieces of embroidery.
It is a unique experience to sense the warmth of the local people when contact them and communicate with the language of the heart.
A full list of rich facilities include:
Fully Air conditioned
Iron / Iron board
Right in the heart of the historical old town, positioned in one of the most famous and long streets links the municipal garden of the modern city center with the castle s entrance, the traditionally called Fortezza.
Our Studio provides high quality accommodation in a quiet rethymnian neighbourhood for those who are interestetd to gain insight on the daily cretan life of the local people and keep away from the busy touristic hotels.
Staying in the “Makri Steno”, N. Foka street gives you easy access to the local market, historical sites, nearby entertainment and seaside.
Waking up in the morning, enjoying your breakfast in the spacious veranda you can then walk down a five minutes distance to the sandy beach of Rethymno.
And late in the afternoon you shall have a relaxation in our terrace gazing the view from the top while the sun is setting down.
Above all a generous care from the loving landladies is what our Studio can offer you and what you need for a guaranteed pleasant stay…!

Our stay with Eleni was wonderful! She and her boyfriend were so helpful when we asked about day trips to other parts of the island. We were delayed in arriving the first night and we could not email her on the go to let her know our estimated delayed arrival time, but she and her boyfriend stayed up and waited for us past midnight, and gave us a warm welcome despite the long wait! My wife and I were on our honeymoon and the Studio Lefaki was a great place to base ourselves for experiencing Rethymno and other parts of western Crete (Preveli Beach, Episkopi Beach, Arkadi Monastery, Hania, and the Samaria Gorge)! The apartment is perfectly located on the outskirts of the most touristy parts of the Old Town section of the city but is still within a short walk of all the places you'd want to go see. There is a parking lot very nearby if you have a rental car (which reminds me, Eleni let us use her phone and helped us call the rental car company and arrange for a different rental car drop-off time than originally planned - she tried to get the company to give us a nice discount for the extra time, but, alas, was unsuccessful. Still VERY thoughtful though!). One thing about the Old Town: at night there are pretty noisy scooters and motor bikes that zoom by on the streets (these types of vehicles are the only ones that can fit on the thin streets of Old Town). Though the Green Studio (Anastasia) has a charming view of the street below and pleasant greenery right outside the window, you may want to think about staying in one of the inner apartments if you're a light sleeper! There is also an awesome roof with patio furniture up a spiral staircase from the second floor apartments. Great to sit up there during the day enjoying the sun with a book and a beer or two. The apartment cat just had a few kittens - they were also pleasant additions to the whole authentic Greek experience, and they finally let us pet them the night before we left! Overall great experience and highly recommended!
Such a beautiful place to stay and in a perfect central location. Eleni was really helpful and had some great recommendations of where to eat. The bus station was only a 10 minute walk as well. Highly recommend, your love it!!
We really enjoyed Eleni´s nicely decorated Green studio as well as her friendly hosting! We found ourselves taking slow breakfasts since the spacy beautiful terrace was just so wonderful with all that light, great views and sounds of the local life! Actually we kept the terrace as an extension of our studio having the door open most of the time. The location is great, you are close to the best places but still in the middle of the local lifestyle.
