The Studio is fully equipped with a double bed, a single 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…!
Other Things to Note

Elena and her husband were very friendly hosts! We really appreciated the restaurant recommendations -- the Lemon Tree restaurant is exceptionally good.
The studio itself was good, though the bathroom fairly dark. I loved having the bouganvillea as the view outside my window and the porch and upstairs deck were enjoyable. Great location. But more than anything, I wish to comment on Olga and Elena. I was coming from Milos with a "layover" of a few hours in Santorini and my ferry was late, which put me on a 10:30pm bus to Rethymno from Heraklion (hour and a half ride). Elena stayed in touch with me throughout and Olga even came to the bus station to walk with me to the studios. Unfortunately, my second night in town I began feeling under the weather and the next morning found myself down and out with a VERY bad cold. Once Olga and Elena became aware of the situation, they went out of their way to help - they brought be water, hot tea, and went to the pharmacy to get medicine for my throat and fever. They were even prepared to bring me soup! To have someone care for you when sick and traveling solo is priceless and I can't thank these ladies enough.
Elena orange appartment was very pleasant and quiet. In city center of rethymnon very good place to stay.
Logement parfait ! Adorable petit studio en plein coeur des ruelles du vieux Rethymno, avec toutes les commodités nécessaires et très calme !
Petits aménagements tels qu'une terrasse commune toute décorée et bien agréable en saison d'été !
Elena nous a reçu de nuit, après notre atterrissage à Heraklion, avec un grand sourire et de bons conseils pour diner ainsi que pour les visites du lendemain !
Sans compter l'assiette de beignets chauds qui nous attendaient devant notre porte le lendemain matin...! Un pur régal !
Merci beaucoup Elena !
Elena est une hotesse formidable, pleine d'attentions. la chambre est superbe, dans un quartier à la fois touristique et authentique. tout est impeccable. Nous y retournerions sans hésiter. Merci Elena !
Nous sommes très satisfaits d'avoir débuté notre séjour en Crête par ces 6 jours dans le studio orange d'Eleni qui est une hôtesse très attentionnée : petites spécialités culinaires offertes, nettoyage journalier. De plus le studio avec sa terrasse partagée avec l'autre studio est très agréable et idéalement situé dans une rue authentique mais calme à proximité des rues touristiques du centre historique.
We stayed three nights here in the heart of old-town Rethymno. Anastasia was a wonderful host who was there to greet us and popped in many times to see that all was well. We stayed in two of the studios and our favourite was 'Elena' on the upper floor. This was simply due to it being to the rear of the building - a few more metres away from passing scooters. The rooms are artfully done out and the three outdoor sitting areas (ground floor patio, upper terrace and rooftop) offer sun or shade at various times of day. Everything is within walking distance and you feel like you're in a real town and not a resort. We would definitely return here should we revisit Rethymno.
