  • Great place !!!

    Cécile2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • The villa in Kato Saktouria was a bit out of the way of the typical tourist places, which we really liked. I was in the villa with my wife and child and we were very impressed with the equipment of the villa. Unfortunately we were only able to use the outdoor pool very seldom due to the strong wind, which was not that bad either. Kostas and his team were very helpful and have given us very short notice trip tips or important information via WhatsApp. It is important that you have a rental car locally, as the paths are far and not within walking distance. The check-in worked very well, an employee was already there when we arrived and showed us everything we needed for the first night. It was very well equipped and extremely clean. We would definitely recommend Kostas and his team.

  • Super nice stay!

    Matthias2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay in the villa. The villa is very nicely decorated and cosy and the pool area is also very nice. From the terrasse you have a beautiful view over the mountains and the sea. A car is absolutely necessary to get everywhere, but it is so nice that the villa area is very quiet and peaceful.

    Sarah2019-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Totally stunning - best views anywhere in Crete - one direction the sea, the other snow capped mountains! Great pool, very secluded and peaceful. The villa was immaculate and had everything we needed. The team were so welcoming and always available for questions about things to do in the area. Great local beach about 10 minutes drive away - sheltered cove, beach bar, showers. Preveli Palm Beach, Matala Caves and Rethymno all just under an hour away. Also hiking from the doorstep around the beautiful hills. They delivered a five star holiday for sure - and then more! The and villa went way above our expectations. We will be back!

    Michaela2019-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • Throw every expectation you have out the window because it will exceed and go beyond! Beautiful villa, incredible location and a brilliant host.. couldn’t of asked for anything more and cannot rate highly enough.

    Lola2019-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice location with great views and very good facilities! Very nice surroundings and beautiful, little-visited beaches! Car is urgently needed! We can only recommend Kostas and the location! Kostas is by the way very well organized and very helpful and helped us a lot with a rental car problem;)!

    Ben2018-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is a dream! We absolutely enjoyed every aspect of it. The views are breathtaking. Our favourite beach was Agios Pavlos which is not far away. We enjoyed breakfast every morning in the terrace and some dinners as well. Very peaceful and luxurious. The swimming pool was refreshing to use after such hot days. Beautiful to chill out.

    Triopetra is located about 52km south of Rethymno and 13km southeast of the village Akoumia, at the foot of the mountain Siderotas. It can be accessed by car, through paved roads that start either from Akoumia or Sachtouria. Triopetra lies in the central part of a long beachfront, called Akoumiani Gialia, (i.e. Akoumia Beach). This is named like this because the wider area of Triopetra was once the winter sheter of Akoumia village residents, who had built small cottages to spend the night near their olive groves. Triopetra consists of two beaches, which are separated by a small peninsula. At the edge of the peninsula, in the sea, three majestic rocks rise. Triopetra is named after these rocks, since it means “Three Rocks”. The first beach, known as Small Triopetra (or Koumado), is located in a closed sandy and rocky bay, south of the three rocks. In its southern end flows the river Akoumianos. This river separates Triopetra area from the magical beach of Agios Pavlos Sandhills at Cape Melissa. The area also hosts a small harbor, in the southeast part of the beach, called Stomio (mouth), named after the "mouth" of the river reaching the sea. 1km northeast of this beach, you can visit the amazing chapel of Prophet Elias, on a high hill, overlooking Akoumiani Gialia. The main beach of Triopetra, West Triopetra (or Chatzi), is formed west of the rocks and extends to the west for some kilometers before the beach of Ligres. The beach has beautiful coarse sand and nice water colors. Its west-orientation makes it vulnerable to the western winds and high waves, but also famous for its fantastic sunset. The east part of the beach is mildly organized with taverns, rooms and umbrellas, but never seems crowded. There is a small river, with fresh water all year round. Free camping is not allowed on the beach, but there is a stunning big cave with shape Δ near the three rocks, where you can find shade. The west part of Triopetra is not organized at all. There is a dirt road that runs along the beach and heads to the next beach, Ligres
  • Awesome location up in the hills with spectacular views . Had a really great stay at this beautiful villa . I'd recommend it if you're looking for a quiet location fairly close to the beaches and with a lovely pool . The kitchen facilities were all good . Would definitely love to stay there again

    Robin2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous setting with magnificent views - perfect for a quiet holiday. Well-equipped and comfortable villa in a secluded spot. Excellent communication from our host. We did lots of walking and beach-visiting. You need a car but the good news is that there is a taverna in walking distance for end-of-day meal and drink. Perfect.

    Christine2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very comfortable. Unfortunately there was no electricity for two days due to construction work. WLAN available but not suitable for several users at the same time. For problems we were helped very quickly and someone was always available. Beautiful and quiet countryside location, far away from the major tourist centers and traffic. We were able to relax and could use the pool every day.

    Martin2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice stay. The villa has all the advantages as described: a great view, a quiet location with a very nice tavern, which is within walking distance, a clean overall picture and an appealing interior. Only small note: one should not too much on the wireless. Inside, it almost does not work at all, very mixed up outside. Netflix - as stated in the description - did not work during our stay.

    Daniel2018-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had amazing three weeks in the villa. It is situated in a wonderful surrounding full of olive trees and provides a great sea view from the patio. The pool is clean and has the perfect size for the first few simmeters in the morning. The photos given at AirBnB perfectly match the accomodation and its setting. The villa is very good equipped with everything you need for a pleasant stay. Thank you very much for providing these opportunity. We devinitely reccommend this villa for everyone seeking great creteain holidays.

    Carsten2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time... wonderful and quiet, perfect if you are looking for a relaxing private stay - walkable to nice taverna; great communication with host.

    Hannah2018-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a relaxing week in the gorgeous villa. Everything was very clean and we were very surprised when we found a small supply of food so we could relax and start on vacation right after arrival. The communication with the hosts was smooth and uncomplicated via WhatsApp. The highlight is the very well maintained pool with the sea view. The next town with a small mini market is about 10 minutes away by car. A nice little tavern is just around the corner on the way to the sea, here have the best souvlaki eaten and were received with a lot of hospitality. The villa is located in a quiet location away from the tourist crowds, yet destinations such as Matala (45 minutes), Preveli Beach (30 minutes) or Rethymno (1 hour) are easy to reach. The local beaches are quiet and well maintained with small taverns and crystal clear water.

    Florian2018-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very great villa located in the wild southern Creta with an amazing view on the lybian sea and enjoyable patio with swimming pool / bbq. The place is very quiet and peaceful. Moreover, it s an interesting starting point to visit many sites in the south. Two nice villages are quite close by car (Akoumia & Spili) and the beautiful beach is only 5 minutes away by car also.

  • The apartment was equipped with a passionate dedication to detail and we didn't miss a thing during our stay. Maka, the lady in charge of the house, was very friendly and helped us kindly with all our questions. An absolut bonus point was that the rooms were cleaned and we got fresh towels everyday.

    Hanna2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very stylish, it is super clean (the room was additionally cleaned every day) and we really fell in love with the area. Within five minutes you can reach a very nice beach in about five minutes, the Triopetras Beach or the Palm Beach are definitely worth a visit. All in all, highly recommended for those looking for beautiful beaches and nature away from the tourist crowds.

    Michéle2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • 5 stars because we cannot give 10. Wonderful place and best seaside in Crete. Perfect accommodation

    Gregorio2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • The quarter is super modern and very nicely decorated. The mattress was unbelievably comfortable and the pillows were great adapted to the head. Here we woke up well rested every day. The staff -Maka- was very friendly and helpful and even every day cleaned up our apartment, changed the towels and the bed prepared. We were pleasantly surprised: D If you book this apartment, you should know that it is in the basement, but what makes it not worse. It is very bright, has high ceilings and is easy to feel good. Thank you for allowing us to stay here!

  • We had 4 beautiful days in Brigitte's accommodation in Triopetra. It was super clean and very neat. The place is ideal for relaxing

    Francesca2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • The property is in a great location near the beach of Triopetra. Some very good summer taverns are located in the vicinity, the beach below the property invites with turquoise blue water and sandy beach to stay and swim. It's fast in Spili. We had the room in the basement in the accommodation. Of course there is no view and terrace, but it is shady and cool in the summer heat. We had everything we needed, a well equipped kitchen, fridge, air conditioning, wireless internet worked perfectly. The bathroom as well as the entire villa are very modern and stylish. The room was extremely clean and Maka, the co-host of the villa, kept the room clean every day! Also check-in and -out worked without any problems thanks to the employee living next door. We absolutely recommend Brigitte's villa and would come back anytime! :)

    Stefan2019-06-29T00:00:00Z

  • The stay in the house was exceptional. We felt like we were at home. The view from the terrace is breathtaking, especially at sunset. The services, cleaning and furnishing of the house are perfect, as it was the hospitality of the host. For sure this could be a valid choice if we will have a new trip in Crete.

    Giovanni2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very Good welcome. Quiet place with superb view.

    Laurence2019-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • We were fortunate to call the home of Kostas for 6 days our home and are more than thrilled. A lovingly and wonderfully furnished accommodation over two floors, each with a balcony and a terrace (which also houses a private pool). The photos of AIrbnb at least correspond to what one expects. Especially in terms of equipment we were overwhelmed. In addition to fly screens in each window / sliding door were also a system, TV, various kitchen appliances and and and available - and in very very good condition. As for the situation: Yes, the terrace has a street "on the neck" which does not bother, since very very few vehicles pass through the house. Also you have to consider by car about 30 minutes to the next supermarket to drive. The contact with Kostas was first cream - better and faster it does not work. We are looking forward to coming again! Many Thanks!

    Marcel2018-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Just perfect! The house is modern, clean and equipped with a lot of extra extras. The view from the terrace to the sea and the daily sunset is breathtaking. You definitely need a car, as the house is very remote. We were still very, very satisfied. With the hosts, friendliness, hospitality and helpfulness comes first. You could reach you anytime, everything was clarified and it was, if necessary, always helped immediately. I highly recommend it!!

    Elisa2018-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Don't hesitate any longer and book this villa! It has an amazing view and really everything you need! The communication was great, really more then we expected. There are 2 beaches very near (10. minute drive) the villa, if you want something else then your private pool.. :) We really enjoyed our stay and do absolutely recommend it! Thanks again Kostas!

    Henrieke2018-08-31T00:00:00Z

The location in the hills above the sea is stunning (though you’ll definitely need a car to access it) and the villas themselves are clean & well-appointed. Plenty of good eating options within 15 minutes drive. Highly recommend!

    If you wish to write, paint, live...come to the fairytale old village of Kato Mixorouma, and stay in a stone-built cottage in a garden flooded with flowers and trees on the bank of the river full of ducks and gees, and let the singing of the birds and the splashing of the river rock you to sleep and calm you.

    . The History of Kato Mixorouma The village is in a very calm place surrounded by mountains right on the river. It is in the old historical village of Kato Mixorouma where very few people currently live, as the new village is built about 200-300 meters away. The village has old houses of traditional cretan architecture, which we are now in the process of trying to get the state to fund in order to preserve and define it as a traditional village. Here is a little bit of history….The settlement of Kato Mixorouma is referenced in the first known recording of settlements in Crete by Fr.Barozzi in 1577 and in the Basilicata in 1630. It is also referenced in the Turkish census in 1659 and in the Egyptian census in 1834. The Kato Mixorouma is built on the north bank of the river which starts in Spili,
  • The house was great! Where to start. Its location is perfect as it is in contact with the river and in the morning you wake up to the sound of water. The house has a truly traditional character without lack of amenities and facilities. The terrace and the garden between the two houses are very well designed and welcoming. A mini market and an oven are 200 meters away. Worth a visit!

  • This is a great location really in nature. It is an ideal place for anyone who wants to relax, relax away from the noise of the city and get in touch with nature. You can stroll around the river and explore the surrounding area.

    Serene place in the delightful Amari Valley. An idyllic rural retreat with private pool. Overlooking the terracotta rooftops of the village of Amari, Villa Idi can accommodate up to eight guests comfortably. The two-storey property has an interior area of 140 square metres, a comfortable living room, kitchen and dining areas, three bedrooms (comprising double and single bed options), and two bathrooms.
    Villa Idi is a traditional stone-built dwelling and was the former home of the owner’s grandparents. A typical rural residence built in the mid-1800s, today the villa exudes a unique charm, with its sensitive renovation carefully blending original features with contemporary comfort. With spectacular views across the Amari Valley to Mount Ida, and a location that guarantees peace and tranquility, Villa Idi offers guests that most elusive of experiences - a beautiful refuge in which to unwind and recharge, enriched by the traditions of "the real Crete". The property has been in the owner’s family for generations. In his childhood, Manolis spent his summer holidays here with his “papou” and “yiayia” (grandfather and grandmother). Decades later, Manolis restored the building for the sake of those sweet summers and transformed it into one of Crete’s most delightful and sought-after holiday homes. Amari village ('Nefs Amari') is a small traditional village in the heart of Rethymno province in central Crete. A 40-minute drive south of Rethymno town, Villa Idi is set on high ground just below village’s Venetian church with marvelous views across the Amari Valley to the highest mountain in Crete - Mount Ida (Psiloritis). The interior of Villa Idi comprises many traditional furnishings and historical artefacts - including wood-burning fireplace - with a fully-equipped contemporary kitchen, central heating, air-conditioning and modern appliances. Capacity may be extended to nine guests if required. Wi-Fi is available throughout the property and the living room features a flat-screen TV and a device-compatible DVD/CD player/home cinema system. The villa's terrace comprises a private swimming pool and sunbathing area with sunbeds. With superb views to Mount Ida and across the valley, the terrace includes BBQ facilities and a dining area. Villa Idi is a unique property in the region, combining luxury and comfort unparalleled in the Amari Valley. The village of Amari, located centrally in the Valley, is ideal for hikers and visitors wishing to explore the landscape and surrounding communities. Equidistant from Crete's north and south coasts, Villa Idi is perfectly placed, allowing guests easy access to the south coast's beautiful (and less-used) beaches, as well as the more developed north coast. The Old Town of Rethymno is less than an hour's drive away, so visiting this popular location - one of the most intact medieval towns in Greece - is easy. GUEST SERVICES The villa is looked after by "Mrs Rumy" (pronounced "roomy") who lives nearby and she is available to take care of any guests’ needs, including changing of linen and cleaning services. As a highly skilled cook, Mrs Rumy also offers guests an exclusive range of authentic Cretan and Mediterranean dishes. All the meals provided are homemade, using fresh seasonal ingredients - all from local suppliers. Prices for meals are available on request. CHILDREN For youngsters and the young at heart, Villa Idi has a range of toys, games, books and movies to choose from. Baby cots and highchairs are available. The village has a basketball and volleyball court plus open spaces for games, and the lack of traffic in the village offers a safe and friendly environment for children to explore.
    The Amari Valley lies between two mountain ranges - Mount Ida to its east and the Kedros range to the west. The Valley is one of a few regions of Crete where the traditional Cretan rural way of life is still present. It is a place of unique nature and of cultural traditions which are central to the lives of its people today. The village of Amari is set on the eastern slope of Samitos mountain. Peaceful and with little traffic entering this tiny hamlet (average resident population 200), the only sounds likely to break the silence are the tinkling of goat bells and the ringing of the village’s church bells. Surrounded by ancient olive groves, vineyards and citrus orchards, the area is a gentle hiker’s paradise. The nearby landscape, dotted with tiny, often hidden, byzantine chapels, is a joy to explore by foot, while the Amari Valley lends itself to lazy exploration by car along its latticework of beautiful tree-shaded lanes and mountain paths. Numerous paths starting from Amari and nearby villages guide you to magnificent natural and historically important sites. For the more adventurous, there is of course Mount Ida to scale at 2456 metres, Crete’s most sacred peak. The E4 walking path runs through the village of Amari. The area surrounding the village of Amari is rich in history with several sites dating to Minoan and Byzantine times. Important locations include the ancient town of Syvritos, near the village of Thronos (7 km), and excavations of a Minoan palace in the village of Monastiraki (2 km). Famed for its breathtaking gorges, some of Crete’s most beautiful are close to the Amari Valley. They include the gorge of Agios Antonios, near Patsos (14 km); and Platania Gorge (7 km) on the western edge of Mount Ida. The towering Kourtaliotiko Gorge, 32 km west of Amari, provides the most direct route to Plakias and the south coast. Many significant archaeological and religious sites are within a one-hour drive, including Arkadi Monastery (13 km), Ancient Eleftherna (21 km), Festos Minoan Palace, (38 km) and Preveli Monastery (40 km).
  • Wow... What an amazing place. The pictures do not do it justice. From the start Manolis was very organized and informative. He went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and had easy access to all information. The Villa and Manolis were amazing but above all, Mrs Romy!! She was amazing. I cannot say enough great things about this place but I will forever miss Mrs. Romy's hospitality and comfort. If you are thinking of traveling to Create do yourself a favor and visit this Villa

    Megan2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis’ place is by far the best Airbnb we have stayed in. Incredible hospitality, views, amenities and surroundings. The house is very clean and has everything you could possibly need! Manolis gave us fantastic suggestions of where to go and what to see catered to our preferences. Mrs Rumys food and hospitality was wonderful, we really enjoyed her home cooking! A huge thank you to the both of you for a making sure we had a wonderful week! Stefania

  • Expect a warm reception and attentive host in Manolis, a cheerful, friendly and excellent cook in Mrs.Rumy the housekeeper, a beautifully situated villa overlooking the rooftops of Amari village and exquisite views of the Amari valley and Cretes highest peak Mt.Ida (2456m) off to the East. We can't recommend enough taking advantage of Mrs.Rumys cooking. Truly wonderful food, Highly recommend the Cretan salad, the rabbit with tomatoes and fried potatoes (amazing chips). All in all it was just brilliant and very well priced. The kitchen should have all you need. A welcome basket of fruit bread and cheese was very welcome after a long days travelling to get there. The reviews are not too good to be true, it's that nice.

    Leo2019-09-06T00:00:00Z

    Phil2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • A stay at Amari Villas is a stay in Paradise. Truly a unique and wonderful experience . The Villa. A beautifully restored, and extended, traditional Cretan villa in a mostly sleepy, but often lively and vibrant mountain village. The villa was spotlessly clean, impeccably well presented and laid out. It mixes modern amenities with traditional features superbly, and the small touches make it feel like a rustic Cretan home from home. The views are out of this world, over village rooftops down into ancient olive groves in the valley. The skyline is dominated by the impressive shape of Mt Samotis in the foreground and the massive Mt. Idi in the background, that was still snow capped during our stay in early July. It is now one of favourite places to visit in the world. A view you can never get tired of. The outside space matches the interior too, thoughtfully laid out with everything you need. The area. So much to do! Our stay was filled with many activities, ranging from a stroll through the olive groves, to a hike, and a swim, through an incredible gorge. There wad too much to do on our week long trip, and we only wish we had had more time to do more! We equally enjoyed a few days relaxing on the terrace by the pool. Amari Villas offer a bit of everything, and a lot of fun! The host (s). All of the other reviews are true. From the moment we booked, to the moment we left we found Manolis to be attentive, knowledgeable, easy to contact and full of brilliant suggestions of what to do, where to go, what to eat, and drink! It was a pleasure to spend a little time with Manolis, and his wife Rula. We are so grateful to them for taking the time out to make our stay in Crete unforgettable. And Rumy! Who made our stay extra extra special with her warm greetings, help around the Villa and delicious food! All three of our hosts really went the extra mile to ensure that everything was perfect, and we cannot thank them enough.

    Stefan2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Amari is beautifuly located, fully equipped and perfectly clean. In our opinion the villa is not just another nice airbnb house, it is unique and it has a soul. When you go there you will not want to leave. Manolis in fact is perfect host, very friendly and helpful. The last but not the least, Mrs. Rumy who takes care of the house is a wonderful person and she cooks absolutely excelent greek food. We would love to come back!

    Dorota2019-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis’ Villa is located within the beautiful Amari Valley- surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. If you’re looking for a peaceful escape from the crowded tourist trails- this is your spot- I highly recommend it! The villa has all the amenities you’ll need and Manolis has fantastic recommendations for local hikes, beaches, and sites. We did a local gorge hike that was even better than the Samaria Gorge and way less crowded. You’re about an hour’s drive from beautiful, secluded beaches too. We had Ms. Roomy cook dinner for us one night and it was superb. Manolis’ hospitality is exemplary of Greek hospitality. I can’t wait to return!

    Thomas2018-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Amari at Villa Idi was one of the highlights of our trip to Crete. Such a beautiful house in a wonderful location, must be one of the top locations in the beautiful Amari valley, the view is stunning and sitting at the patio with the sun setting over the mountains with just the sound of goat bells and people talking in the village, is just magical. The house is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped with a very nice pool as well. But the thing that made it outstanding is the fantastic hospitality of Manolis and Mrs Rumy. Manolis welcomed us at the villa and gave us lots of information about the area and he also provided us with superb written information about the Rethymnon area which was very useful also for the rest of our trip. There was also generous welcoming "supplies" in the kitchen/fridge, so kind and thoughtful. We enjoyed mrs Rumys wonderful cooking and on top of it all she had the cutest kittens which the kids of course loved! All in all a wonderful stay, we would love to go back and warmly recommend it to others.

    Triopetra is located about 52km south of Rethymno and 13km southeast of the village Akoumia, at the foot of the mountain Siderotas. It can be accessed by car, through paved roads that start either from Akoumia or Sachtouria. Triopetra lies in the central part of a long beachfront, called Akoumiani Gialia, (i.e. Akoumia Beach). This is named like this because the wider area of Triopetra was once the winter sheter of Akoumia village residents, who had built small cottages to spend the night near their olive groves. Triopetra consists of two beaches, which are separated by a small peninsula. At the edge of the peninsula, in the sea, three majestic rocks rise. Triopetra is named after these rocks, since it means “Three Rocks”. The first beach, known as Small Triopetra (or Koumado), is located in a closed sandy and rocky bay, south of the three rocks. In its southern end flows the river Akoumianos. This river separates Triopetra area from the magical beach of Agios Pavlos Sandhills at Cape Melissa. The area also hosts a small harbor, in the southeast part of the beach, called Stomio (mouth), named after the "mouth" of the river reaching the sea. 1km northeast of this beach, you can visit the amazing chapel of Prophet Elias, on a high hill, overlooking Akoumiani Gialia. The main beach of Triopetra, West Triopetra (or Chatzi), is formed west of the rocks and extends to the west for some kilometers before the beach of Ligres. The beach has beautiful coarse sand and nice water colors. Its west-orientation makes it vulnerable to the western winds and high waves, but also famous for its fantastic sunset. The east part of the beach is mildly organized with taverns, rooms and umbrellas, but never seems crowded. There is a small river, with fresh water all year round. Free camping is not allowed on the beach, but there is a stunning big cave with shape Δ near the three rocks, where you can find shade. The west part of Triopetra is not organized at all.

  • The Villa is a hidden gem in a magical part of Crete. We had a wonderful week in the villa- it is very comfortably laid out with tasteful, authentic decor. Our host had left some welcome essentials in our fridge for arrival and even brought a coffee pot at our request. Communication throughout was excellent. I would highly recommend DisCrete Villas and hope to return soon.

    Christian2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Truly amazing place! The house is gorgeous, but the terraces and outdoor areas are over the top! Charming stonework brought to life with the colour of cascading geraniums and the shade of olive trees. The grounds are beautifully private and cosy. The local beach has sparkling waters and the friendliest taverna. All part of the charm of this property. I will definitely be coming back and recommending to my family and friends.

    Raine2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • The DisCrete Villas Place is simply awesome. You are living in comfortable and quite place with much space for lying outside in the sun or having breakfast in the morning hours. The place is perfectly clean and equipped with everything needed. The beach is only a few minutes by car away.

    Christoph2019-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • The property is absolutely stunning, the views are out of this world and the locals are most welcoming. Would definitely return as it was a fantastic break. The hosts had fantastic communication with very well laid out emails for all things. Thanks for the great time guys :)

    James2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • The host is very accomodating and I recommend based on that alone.

    Paul2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful Villa in an amazing place, equipped with evrithing you need. George has been kind and helpfull. The pool a very good place with beautiful view also in windy days.

    Andrea2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We were so warmly welcomed by George in the middle of the night. His wife has given us some food. Georges was always there for us. At the request of George, the house in the middle of our vacation spotlessly clean-bed linen and towels changed. So dear! The house, the environment, the people, pool, sea and great tavernas. It was a wonderful holiday and highly recommended. Who wants to make excursions (highly recommended) needs some time and must take many curves into account. But it goes through such a beautiful landscape that one likes to accept that. In strong winds you are well protected from the wind and can still swim and enjoy the sun and views. Always my pleasure! Thanks for everything Mister George and wife

    Andrea2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Pleasant place with a house with multiple bedrooms and bathroom, toilet which is very valuable family / group. Beautiful view of the sea with many beaches that are very close. PS: The land has two houses and two pools on different levels.

  • Great house with many amenities and nice views! Ideal place to escape the city! The host responds immediately to any questions!

    Nikos2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • So, the house is great. Very clean, very well done, super well placed for those who love the calm, the mountain and the hikes. Incidentally a small trip to the sea is not so far. Menthos and Maria are like their house. Welcoming. They have the charm of what we have often lost ... the authenticity. Like the whole village of Patsos. Above all, take the time to take the time to the terraces of the village. 3 taverns ... we are fine there. In short, a 5-star stay not to mention those that light up the sky ...

    Catherine2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • The house of Manthos was one of the nicest accommodations we have ever had. Not only in Crete. It is so lovingly and stylishly decorated and the view while dining on the terrace is fantastic. The hospitality of Manthos' is extraordinary. Thank you for welcome drinks, fruits and more. Unfortunately we were only 2 nights in Patsos and would like to come back.

    Helga Dieter2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible views and very clean space. Ideal for friends and family.

    Markos2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in the green, ideal for relaxing. Very clean, comfortable, with all that is needed and a great view on the mountain. Manthos and his family are perfect host, very kind.

    Giulia2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Manthos and Maria's house is the perfect base to explore the region of Amari. Away from tourists - probably all through the year - one can enjoy the peaceful tops and green valleys of the southwest of the Psiloritis mountain. The villages are small and quite, people are welcoming and the food is divine. Manthos and Maria's house has all the amenities one might need. It was impeccably clean and the views from the terrace were breathtaking. Maria had left some local treats for us and gave us some helpful tips about the region. Don't miss the local raki and cheese! Thanks a lot maria, we'll try to come back soon!

    Eleftheria2019-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely recommendable for your stay in Crete. The house is very lovely, equipped with all the amenities you need, the terrace is supernice and the village of Patsos is a great escape. Manthos is a very nice and welcoming host, communication was very quick and efficient. Thanks a lot! Hope to be back soon!

    Wouter2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a view! A large beautiful home in a cute little town, overlooking amazing countryside. Very homey and comfortable. All the amenities you could ask for and more! Manthos is extremely helpful and available at anytime for advice and answers to your questions. Very close to many walking trails, including the beautiful St. Antonios Gorge. Definitely recommend this place for a quiet retreat in a untouristic place.

  • Giannis is a very nice host. The accommodation met the expectations. If you want to cook your own food in the accommodation, remember that there is no dishwasher. The bikes you can borrow for free are great. The small gym is more suitable for cardio. The pool is clean and you can watch the pool in the evening from the terrace. Unfortunately, one often hears a dog (even at night). There was a small breakfast, which changes every 2 days. I would like to emphasize that you could also have breakfast on the terrace in the morning.

  • This apartment has really an extraordinary beautiful view over the city and the sea. We loved to sit and eat while enjoying the beautiful panorama outside. Besides that we very also absolutely amazed by the hospitality of Christos and his family. From our Check-In throughout our complete stay they were always there if we needed them. They even offered a baby chair for our little girl and a baby crib for our baby - she loved it a lot :) I can only recommend that accommodation, it was one of the best Airbnb experiences we had so far!!!

  • If you want to feel like a bird circling Agia Galini: Here you go! In this apartment you only have to go to the balcony. One looks from high up from the mountains over the place to the sea. Really breathtaking! In addition, it is completely quiet and peaceful, as the busy lanes are all further down. To the beach, as well as in the village you need only 10 minutes. A supermarket and a restaurant with a pool are nearby. The apartment itself is spacious and furnished really chic. The bed is comfortable, the shower good, the price low. Very large, modern kitchen with microwave. There are also treats such as home-made raki and pickled grapes from their own production for free. A real insider tip!

    Susanne2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • PERFECT. AMAZING. The place is divine, the house wonderful (perfect decoration, furniture, amenities). But best of all are the kids who have it. Incredible humor perfect mood and always willing to help when needed. Really one of the best Airbnb accommodations we've ever been to. It is worth visiting 100%. !!!

  • Amazing stay, would 10/10 recommend! The place has a stunning view to the seaside, mountains and the village, with a large balcony to enjoy the view. The place was sparkling clean and everything was new. The rooms were beautifully designed and decorated. The hosts Makis and Cristos kindly provided many amenities such as bottles of water, raki, some snacks and shampoo. You can find everything you need at the apartment. They were also extremely friendly, welcomed us and helped us settle in, and provided a parking space just next to the apartment. The place is ideally located, only a couple minutes walk to the village, where you can find restaurants, bars, and Makis’ supermarket, which has everything that you may need. It is also very close to the beach. We loved our stay here and wished that we could’ve stayed longer. If we ever come back, this place would definitely be our first choice. Thank you Cristos and Maki for giving us a wonderful holiday experience!

We hiked in the area, explored it by car, relived some of the history of Patrick Leigh Fermur, drove down to the beaches and bigger towns for a little culture and mainly ate well, in the surrounding villages. The place is spacious and most comfortable with lots of outdoor corners to hide away...and even work (good wifi), for those who can't without.

  • The house is quietly situated above the roofs of the village of Mesonisia. The driveway to the house is a bit steep, but after a drive you have the hang of it. The house is very spacious and offers enough space for everyone. From the roof terrace you have a beautiful view of the landscape and the garden with pool. Mrs. Zina is very friendly, helpful and always available. For questions or small issues, Mrs. Zina took care of it immediately. We enjoyed it very much and we will definitely be back :)

  • Villa Krios is a stunning villa in a stunning location. A steep drive to the house is rewarded with absolute peace and tranquility. Kids and adults loved both the pool and all the space and balconies offered by the villa. Valia was always very responsive both before and during our stay, and we appreciated the wine and fresh vegetables left by our local host Mrs Zena. A wonderful experience that we will look back on with much fondness for a long time to come!

    Geoff2018-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay, nothing to criticize! The description is accurate. Very good facilities and prompt assistance with questions. I give this place 5 stars.

    Guido2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is absolutely lovely, the rooms are spacious and the en suites clean with plenty of hot water. The views across the valley from the balconies are magnificent, we recommend an early evening drink on the upstairs balcony watching the sunset - and then coming back later for some star spotting. The pool is a wonderful resource and you have the added bonus of twice daily visits by local swallows who swoop down to take a drink whether you are in the water or not. I found watching this activity totally magical. It's worth saying that if you are hiring a car, getting one with a bigger engine (bigger than 1.3) for all the mountain roads (and particularly the very steep drive to the villa) would be very helpful. Visiting big attractions (such as Knossos/Samaria Gorge/The Acqua Plus water park) are all a tiring drive away (at least two hours for each of these) and if you haven't got a head for heights some of the drives may be quite challenging...but they are all worth it. Local hits for us were the beach at Plakias (the clearest water we found, perfect for swimming and watching fish)- a 45 minute drive, Spili's water fountains and folk museum (which has the most enthusiastic guide I have met) about 20 minutes away and the St Antonius Gorge which has a fabulous taverna to eat in once you have climbed up and down. Again it's worth noting that the gorge is challenging for those not good with heights so make sure you check on Trip Advisor where reviews are honest about what to expect during the hikes. Rethymno's fortress and venetian streets are well worth a visit as is Heraklion and it's archeological museum. Valia and Mrs Zina who looked after us during our stay responded very quickly to all our requests and supplied us with useful information on local holidays and activities. Mrs Zina regularly changed linen and would leave us gifts of local produce which we thought a lovely touch. We had a wonderful holiday.

    Sabina2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the cosy rustic nature of the villa. Zina and her family are extremely friendly and helpful. The Villa is set on a mountain so having a vehicle with good horsepower is an advantage as the driveway in is steep, but certainly easy to climb. The villa has all the amenities you could wish for. The pool is lovely and refreshing. The view from the upper balcony on a starry night is a must! Zina, the owner, runs a taverna on site, and with a little notice she and her family cook amazing, authentic, traditional Greek cuisine. Do not miss this opportunity as her cooking is amazing. Meronas, a small village ten minutes away, has the best Taverna in the area. Run by Dina, it is on the left side, covered with vine leaves and decorations. Brilliant food. Gerakari is a five minute drive away and has a few tavernas and a small supermarket so you can stock up on essentials. Sat Nav's are useful, but we also used Google Maps on our Iphones as well. If you fancy a boat trip, contact Fanis at Rethmyno Cruises as he can take you out for a cruise and it is a wonderful opportunity. AND, you can swim in the sea. We would not hesitate to go back.

    The newly renovated house is set in the still untouched part of the south of Crete. Away from all the busy resorts, but only a 45 minutes’ drive away from Rethimno, and within walking distance from Agios Georgios beach and Agia Galini. If you want Peace and Quiet, this is what you will find here. Our house fits 2 adults and a child from 0 until 14 years old. The hosts live nearby, and will be happy to help you get settled in. Warm regards, Rebecca and Alain
    If you are looking for a unique and quiet place to relax and enjoy your holiday in peace, this is the right holiday house for you. You can enjoy your breakfast on one of our lovely terraces, take a long walk to Agios Georgios beach and have a lovely diner in the town Agia Galini. If you just want to stay in and cook diner at home, all the facilities are available in our new kitchen. You can go to the supermarket in Agia Galini where you will find all the necessities.
    Our house is located in between the touristic fisherman's village Agia Galini and the rustic beach Agios Georgios. This makes that you can have a very relaxed holiday but also have the possibility to explore the idyllic village that is Agia Galini where there are plenty of restaurants, bars and gift shops where you can have a night out. Agia Galini sees it's share of Tourism but stays very authentic. You can also visit the stunning Minoan palace of Phaistos which is within driving distance.
  • Rebecca and Alain are fantastic hosts and made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable. Serendipity is extremely well equipped and comfortable with a fabulous view and outdoor living. We found it hard to leave.

    Jane2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Stop! If you are looking for accommodation and this is still available - do not look any further. It is an incredibly beautiful house, with incredible views and absolute peace. In addition, the hosts will quickly become your best tipsters and helpers - but are only as much around you as you like. The pool is closed off so there are no problems even with small children. You can move freely and enjoy the games. We would like to come again! LG Tobi, Saskia & Franz

    Tobias2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Rebecca and Alain are such friendly and helpful hosts! And the location is just perfect for a private, very calm and very relaxing stay with a wonderful seaview. The house has everything you need and we didn‘t even went to the village nearby because being „at home“ was too good. We would have stayed longer if we could and we thank both of them for being so nice and easygoing. Hope to be back one day, A&S

    Aline2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible. You will not regret your stay at serendipity. We had booked our stay in Agia Galini kind of on the fly, and it ended up being our absolute favorite part of our trip to greece. Serendipity offered the perfect respite from the business of Chania and Athens , but with none of the compromises you would expect from a more rustic setting. Absolutely state-of-the-art amenities (the shower was better than any 5-star hotel. Our hosts were so lovely and generous, and they did not hesitate to recommend local restaurants and activities off the beaten track. If I ever return to crete, I will absolutely book another stay at Serendipity (hopefully a longer one!). Cannot more highly recommend this place. I miss it :'-)

    Lily2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • The house is set on a promory above the sea. The view is a dialogue with the beauty that the horizon never stops. The house is perfectly suited to the requirements of those seeking both comfort modernity and silence. We reach the village of Agia Galini in 10 minutes with the car to go shopping, have a drink, get haircuts (my case). Otherwise the beaches offer an embarrassment of wonders. And if you want to cultivate yourself, the site of Phaïstos, a Minoan city, or the monastery of Preveli, or the visit of the tomb of the god of gods, Zeus himself, will rejoice and enrich you. The house offers the view, the silence and the company of the cicadas. Some far-off neighbors whom we come across from time to time, Westerners who decided to stay there because beauty held them back. This is the only danger here: to be a prisoner of this infinite blue. To guide you, to be attentive and considerate interlocutors, Rebecca and Alain are really perfect. We swim on these shores from May to November. It is a high place of recollection and good living that will bring to your soul what a soul asks for. And what she finds so rarely today.

    Jean-Philippe2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very nice and comfortable in a very quite and lovely place. Great terrace with wonderful sea view where we loved having breakfast! Rebecca and Alain are special hosts so kind and friendly, attentive to the needs of their guests. Thank you again we had an excellent stay!

    Experience authentic Greek mountain village life, make the most of the outstanding flora, fauna, views,walks and local beaches. Relax in our local village hostelries , or if you are feeling a little more energetic head up into the mountains for a walk
    Tastefully renovated basement studio/apartment. On the street level of our family home, Situated on the edge of the village square, just 15 meters from the nearest well ( At which you may also find Donkeys or Goats drinking as well as locals filling their water carriers )
    Melambes is quite beautiful, nestled as it is on the mountainside. Whilst a short drive from the stunning selection of nearby award winning, Blue flag, beaches and resorts, its also an ideal base for walkers, hikers, and cyclists. The local mountainside is home to beautiful herbs and wild flowers. Painters and photographers especially appreciate the local scenery. The village can be a little livlier in August when lots of our neighbours return home for their holidays.
  • Honestly the best hosts I have ever had of any airbnb. They were very communicative, gave helpful recommendations, and even offered a personal tour of the village. I wish every airbnb was like this! The place is small but gives you everything you could possibly need. Lovely shower and kitchen and loved the tables outside to enjoy breakfast. They go above and beyond, you won't regret booking this place!

    Kunjisha2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 4 nights at Ian And Bev.At our arrival, Ian proposed to show us the village of Melambes which is a small mountain village.The studio of Ian Et Bev is located on the ground floor of their home that they have restored themselves.It is very comfortable and decorated with great taste.We were able to visit Agia Galini, Spili, the Amari Valley, the monasteries of Arkadi and Preveli, and we walk in the gorges of Megalopotamos. Again thanks to Yan and Bev for the attention brands that awaited us at the studio: honey, jams, eggs (from their chickens!), Cheese and the famous Raki! Ian served as an interpreter to eat at the village tavern because the boss speaks only Greek.It was super good. We highly recommend the Melambes studio.

    Sylvie2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Ian's and Bev's little house is something above excellent. Ian and Bev took care of every little detail just to make you feel like home. And that was what i felt, i felt that i was home from the first day. The old style decoration, the lights, the furniture, the equipment of the kitcen and the bathroom, the lovely balcony, even the plants, the flowers, the pillows, the foods and drinks, every little detail made mine and my friend's Dimitra vacations perfect. Ian and Bev thank you so much for making me feel like i am home and for your everyday though if everything is ok for us. Hope to see you soon at the most quite and peaceful village i've ever been to.

  • Services to live up to our expectations: pool cleaned every day, daily housekeeping, special attention of the host (cupcakes and other culinary preparations) Near agia galini, a bit far from the interesting beaches however (count 40min mini for a real sandy beach). The pool was shared with the villa next door (twin villa) but it allowed us to make beautiful meetings, see even wonderful meetings! If I had one less to note it would be the drain of the pit all waters just in front of our villa for 30 minutes. Well it does not happen all the time but no bowl we were the ... Otherwise a very pleasant memory in a very nice place.

Free WIFI and Satelite TV are also available at the property.Outside there is a dining area,BBQ,the swimming pool and the garden.
  • The stay was very good in early November 2019, the weather on the south coast was still warm for the time of year, swimming in the nearby sea was even possible, the pool was felt a bit fresher, but super clean, just like that Rest of the property. House, garden, terrace, pool, toilets, kitchen everything extra cleaned again before our arrival. Again any time. The location may be a bit remote for some, but that's what we liked and in Crete you have to be mobile anyway to see and experience something. Even if you could spend a week completely in the house, at the pool and on the beach of Triopetra, without question ... Only in November, all tavernas and beach bars are already closed in Triopetra, since then of course the season is over. That's just sometimes in holiday regions. Greetings and have fun at Villa Michael, Claudia & Thomas Germany

  • We had a very pleasant stay in this small villa full of charm! A swimming pool with a superb view, a beautiful covered terrace to enjoy the outside in the shade or sheltered from the wind;) very clean interior, the equipment is correct we feel quickly "like home"! Attention just for the races the 1st mini market is at least 25-30min of road, the supermarket must be counted 1h for the arrival it is a little useful to anticipate the journey;) the place is quiet in full nature and 5 minutes from a beautiful sandy beach / small pebbles with not much background tt away so perfect for children .. 2 taverns nice on site Cretan cuisine, family and really affordable price! In short we really liked our stay and we keep the address under the elbow for next time again discover more this beautiful island of Crete! :)

  • Very nice accommodation with attention to detail! Super equipped with wonderful views. If you want a little away from the hustle and bustle, this is the place for you!

    Lisa2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • This villa is perfect. The secluded location on top of the hill provides for spectacular views of the ocean and mountains. We enjoyed some breathtaking sunsets. There are some beautiful beaches with crystal clear water less than 10 minutes drive away. The villa itself is very stylish and comfortable. Everything you need is provided in the villa. We had some issues with our booking on airbnb and Kostas was very helpful in sorting these out. The communication, customer service and check-in was great. We would love to stay again in the future.

    Maggie2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place! Quiet and remote but still close to several beaches. Wonderful terrace to enjoy the sunset and beautiful surroundings.

    Mårten2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Well furnished Villa in beautiful landscape, we enjoyed 5 nights at Villa Galini with 8 months old baby and everything was nicely prepared. Communication, check in and service during our stay was unbelievable friendly and fast. Unfortunately the pool was too cold to have a bath in April. We highly recommend it and hope to return one day.

    Isabelle2019-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Another outstanding and relaxing stay in this wonderful villa .This is truly a beautiful house and location . We were as before welcomed by the host and his family as well as by the whole village .We have returned home relaxed and determined to go back again .Our house was cleaned and the linen was changed every 3 days The car hire recommended by our host was superb value and very efficient with no added charges at collection and the pick up and drop off could not have been easier . Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel totally at home able to unwind completely overlooking the most specular panoramic views on the island with sunsets that were a unique experience .

    Chris2018-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about this place was amazing including the service and kindness through with the owner and your holiday advisor! Would go back again every year!!

    Rebecca2018-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • Marvelous modern villa, which allows to spend an excellent family stay far from the hotels and close to beaches. Comfort is at the rendezvous and it feels like home (sea view bonus!). Communication with Kostas is fluid and efficient. It is better to rent a car to discover the surroundings at your own pace. Go ahead with your eyes closed!

    Olivia2018-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at Galini Luxury Homes which says it all. Location is great, 20 mins from Agia Galini with great restaurants and food shops and 20 mins from the gorgeous triopetra beach. The villa has everything you need, very well equipped even down to the washing machine with laundry tabs. Amazing views from the patio with private pool which was warm enough to swim in this time of year.

  • Very nice place!! Jannis is very welcoming and his place is beautiful. Thanks for the delicious raki! The apartment is well equipped and well located, the view from the patio is amazing. We had a great stay!

    Julien2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • We were 1 week in the lovingly furnished style house. Jannis gave us a warm welcome and we felt very well. From the village we made many trips to the spectacular surroundings. Especially beautiful was the way to the beach of Akoumia

    Susanne2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice home, very nice house, congratulations Jani see you soon!

    Kalliroi2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • The house of Jannis is a small happiness. Like a doll's house, beautifully decorated, with several terraces with a thousand scents and especially a mountain view to fall. It is a very pleasant stay, with authenticity, far from tourists. However there are beautiful beaches to see: Triopetra, Agios Pavlos, Preveli ... The site of Phaistos is not far either. There is a minimarket in the village, a tavern snack, and especially a bakery that makes an excellent bread. Jannis is a very caring host, who is not stingy in advice. We were a family of 4 and everyone enjoyed it!

    Juliette2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Jannis is a fantastic host, he gave us a lot of useful tips about the region around Rethymno, he is so kind! The apartment is wonderful, very characteristic and with a astonishing terrace! It’s nestled in the gracious village of Akoumia and is very quiet, here you can really find your own inner peace! It has been an unforgettable experience, we were very sad when we left the apartment, we absolutely recommend this accommodation! Thank you so much Jannis, hope to see you soon!! :)

    Carlo2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely perfect! Giannis's exceptional hospitality and his wonderful home will make us feel great! Ideal mountain retreat and at the same time so close to the wonderful beaches of southern Rethymno. Giannis available at all times and moment! Thank you!

    Melissanthi2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • The traditional house is exactly as described. Jannis and his House give sufficient Space to relaxe and Calm down. The Place is a very good starting Point for exploring the Island. Jannis is a fantastic host, this Place and his neighbourhood have to be strongly recommended, enjoy your stay.

    Kai2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely old house in a quiet village, ideal for travelers who want to taste a bit of local life style and have some peaceful and relaxing time. The rooms are tastefully decorated with old objects and artworks, and everything is unique (no Ikea here). Yannis was very welcoming and ready to share information about the area. The altitude and mountains surrounding the village made us sleep very comfortably even without a/c or fan but with just the night breeze. And we saw some gorgeous beaches all within a half an hour drive from the house. We had a really nice time, thanks Yanni!

    Véronique2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay in a nice valley off the beaten tracks. What we liked most about this stay was the hospitality of the hosts. Very welcoming and accommodating. The food was delicious too!

    Katrin2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice to stay here! In a small and beautiful authentic village in the mountains, away from the tourist crowd. At least 2 tasty, good restaurants in the area. No mini or supermarket seen. We asked about the chef's specialty at these apartments (the owner's mother) and the next day she had made super tasty local dishes, so the food here is also good. The breakfast too. The young man who worked there (but would study again after September) was a very sweet, disarming boy. The apartment itself was large enough, a little dated and we had no hot water most days. Despite that, we have booked an extra night because the positive things definitely prevailed. Tip for hikers: go to the ecoparc nearby (1 or 2 km from these apartments), the owner there has information about beautiful signposted routes, among other things we walked the route that starts in Platania, a beautiful walking tour!

    Marieke2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • We spent three nights in that place and we really enjoyed the view, and the homemade meals, but what we loved the most was the people running the hotel, with disponibility and kindness. Thanks and all the best!!!

    Nicolas2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • We recommend this accommodation and also the restaurant. We were very well received. The setting is very charming. Thank you for everything.

  • What a lovely place in the mountains! Everything there is top notch and all the possible details ate thought of. Maria is a kind of host every place should wish for. Very supportive, caring and welcoming. Her recommendations were great. Also breakfast and dinner is a must try. Thanks again for the hospitality.

    Tomas2018-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely perfect stay! Nothing to say, the room is quite good, the setting is absolutely beautiful! Delicious food and we had a perfect welcome! Thank you very much for this moment and for the wine tasting My only regret is not to have stayed more than one evening I recommend without hesitation

    Meronas, Crete, Greece

    My place is located in the old village, at the harbour, with a very nice view all over the sea and the surrounding mountains. Tavernas, Cafe's, and Bars are nearby and easy to reach. There is no road around the house and therefore no traffic passing. There is rooms and one apartment available. The big terrace invites you to sit and watch.
    The house is in the center of the village, it belongs to those houses that were part of the original village. It has a cosy family atmosphere, individualist travellers feel at home here as well as families, especially in the apartment, which has space for 3 to 4 people. In the winter the house does not get cold, the rooms keep warm even if it is cold outside.
  • Eleni offers a simple, affordable place to live. I spent February 2020 here and felt very comfortable. The floor and bathroom were wiped weekly and the bed reupholstered. I spent a lot of time on the terrace, which has a fantastic view of the harbor and the sea. It was quiet at night, could be different in summer. Eleni is helpful and has occasionally washed my laundry. I will definitely come again.

    Stefan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Eleni was very cute and Nice. She maid for us very good typical greek dinner and good breakfast.

    Alexis2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Eleni's place is located straight at Agia Galini's marina, with a view across the little harbor and 1m to the city center. Its a great place and Eleni is a very outgoing person. Thanks !

    Peter2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Very romantic view and nice place to be. Not very modern but it has its genius loci for sure!

    Eliška2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and great host. Beautifull view from terrace, big parking

    Karolina2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, great space, very basic facilities, the terrace directly over the harbor has a significant impact on my love of Agia Galini. I enjoyed the week with Eleni! Agia Galini is not for the sick, because very steep stairs and climbs.

    Hans-Joachim2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • A super central house with a nice view , Eleni was a great host, everything perfect. Experience the Real Crete life .

  • Stelios was super helpful, flexible and accommodating to our needs during and beyond our stay and very generous with Oranges and olive oil from his farm, We moved from Afrodites (perfect for a shorter visit in winter) to Villa Maria for more space and a home like feel during our month long stay... Beautiful space with a fire, our favourite... it was a treat to love and care for Sifi a resident and very sweet and loving black girl cat... we visited in February and enjoyed the peacefulness of the winter season, we loved just how remote yet close to the beach we were... we had a few weather related tech issues yet perhaps a blessing in disguise... Overall a real gem in a magical spot on a beautiful island with a lovely host! 🙏🏼✨

    Loretta2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Stelios's place is great! We really enjoyed our stay! The house is very close to the amazing beach of Triopetra (within walking distance). I highly recommend it!

    Maria2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • What a place! Stelios has been very helpful and friendly all the time, he gave us perfect indications to arrive and let us enjoy his house that is utmost clean, nice and perfect for a week of holiday. Triopetra has basically nothing a part from a long beautiful beach, 3 tavernas on the beach and that's is. The closest services (minimarket, pharmacy..) are about 20/30mins far, but that can be also positive if you're looking for a very quiet place. Overall recommended !
