Places to stay in Decentralized Administration of Crete
it is a cave from natural rock that at previous years was used as a house by the family in the beginning, and as storage of agricultural products much later. In 2007 after careful renovation and rebuilt, it became a luxurious studio of 60 square metres that can host up to two adults and two children. The studio is complete with dining room, kitchenette, TV and AC. A beautiful balcony reveals the view of Kissamos bay and the mountains that lie in the background. The apartment lies in the village Kaliviani and has a stunning view of Kissamos bay. It is very close to the unique lagoon of Balos and the famous beach of Falasarna. It is located 45 kilometres away from Chania and 55 kilometres from the airport. Kissamos port is just a five minute drive and Falasarna 10 minutes away. Very close to the villa are many smaller beaches. The towels are changed 2 times in a week and we offer upon arrival a welcome basket with local products. Hiring a car is recommended.
Perfect
  • Nantia and Costas are the best AirBnB hosts we have ever had. They immediately made us feel very welcome and even had prepared some local food for us on arrival. The flat is absolutely unique and amazing. We would come back anytime.

  • We came here in late October/early November for our honeymoon. This cave is amazing - cozy, romantic and perfect for us. The location is phenominal - there were three great restaurants open while we were here (although towards the end some closed down for the season). There are beautiful beaches within walking distance or, if you've got transport, some awe-inspiring places nearby (Balos Lagoon was particularly special!) Evangelia was the best host, messaging some top tips and letting us know when the restaurants last days of the season were. The village is beautiful and we need to give a particular shout out to the Kaliviani Fish & Meat Taverna - outstanding food and the owners went out of their way to look after us. This has been the perfect way to start our marriage - thanks so much!

  • We spent five wonderful nights at Nantia and Kosto's beautiful home and we would have stayed longer! It is set in a stunning location, quiet and peaceful and a minute's walk to some excellent restaurants in a lovely village where people are so friendly. It has to be one of the nicest Airbnbs we have stayed in, so stylish and beautifully decorated, everything you could wish for and many thoughtful touches such as delicious pies left in the oven upon our arrival, wine, honey and all the basic essentials. The bed was so comfortable and how nice to waken to the sounds of nature, the tinkling of goat bells!, and the view from the double doors. Nantia and Kosto were so helpful and informative and gave great tips which formed the basis of our daily trips. It is clear from the comments in their visitor book that they are special people who take pride in what they do. It is the kind of place you'd want to be to truly appreciate life and we will most definitely be planning a return visit ! Efharisto Nantia and Kosto!

  • Echoing what everyone else has said, this is an incredible and one of a kind place. Nantia is a terrific host, providing many tasty treats on arrival and some great local tips.

    Zachary2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nantia and her husband were such good hosts. She gave us lots of tips and exchanged ideas with us regularly. The accommodation is very stylish and we felt very comfortable. A rental car is an advantage. During our stay, the adjoining villa was uninhabited, so we could even use the pool, which is not self-evident! Very big recommendation.

    Laura2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Evangelia's place is even better in person. It is so magical and romantic. We loved the location of how quiet it is yet so close to everything. All the little local and homemade treats she left for us were so thoughtful. She is wonderful at quick communication and suggestions for local places to visit. Be sure to visit Gramvousa which is just a few houses away for a delicious dinner, ambiance, and very friendly staff. We hope to stay here again in the future and recommend it to everyone!!

    Jen2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place is everything posted on AB&B and more. Nantia is a super host! My husband & I celebrated our 40 anniversary in Crete. We decided to use Nantia’s place as our home base, rent a car and see as much as we could. Nantia gave us great tips on restaurants site seeing tours, and any other info that we needed. I heartily recommend this place, beautiful, clean, and a real slice of rural hospitable Crete! I’m coming back!

    Denise And Steve2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Nantia’s place was exactly as advertised. When I arrived quite late at night due to the ferry issues, they were still up and waited for me to make sure I got everything I needed. Her homemade pastries were tasty too! I enjoyed staying at her place a lot. I’d like to come back! Thank you!

  • We had a great time at Dimos place. It was good to have a car. It could be parked on a private parking. We enjoyed the barbecue on the terasse.

    Lea2020-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Chania for a month and Dimos' home was the most incredible Airbnb. We have never missed an Airbnb so much. We want to go back and enjoy the beautiful view again and again. Thank you so much Dimos. This is the best place to stay in Chania by far!

    Laura2020-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Dimos is a Great and helpful person 😘!!! ))) The appartement and place wonderful👍***** Amazing view at see ~~~ and whole city👌;,, The hous Such a clean and have everything you need +++! ,, ,, The bed and couch very comfortable ~ really you feel like @ home ! )))

    Tatjana2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Dimos is the perfect host and his place offers a great place from which to explore Chania. The location is close to a bus stop as well as a super market although renting a car gives better opportunities to explore further. The apartment is clean, well furnished and comfortable. Dimos also was kind enough to pick us up from the airport as well as leave fresh fruit and bottled water for our stay. Highly recommend a Dimos place for anyone looking for a great stay in Chania.

    Stephanie2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. L Great view Helpful host!

    Jeremy2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Dimos is an incredible host. He provided so many thoughtful touches, such as basics in the fridge and a lovely fruit bowl. Dimos left a folder full of information on the area and a guide book. His flat is great and has everything you need and, as for the view, it's absolutely stunning - even better than the photographs show. I would highly recommend Dimos' place for those wanting to tour this part of Greece.

    Carole2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Good place, good view. It was a great pleasure to have a rest in this place. I hope I’ll come...

    Регина2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • A delightful apartment with a spectacular terrace offering amazing seascapes even in the last week of November. Dimos gave us some super tips and we were able to take up most of them. Can’t recommend too highly.

Easter in Agios Nikolaos is perhaps the most impressive in Greece. The faithful start gathering round the lake at 11 p.m. on Easter Saturday in order to get the best positions. The best view is if you climb up to the small park above the lake of Agios Nikolaos, from where the scene is even more spectacular. The priests come to the lake from a nearby church around 11:30 and the service of the Resurrection is held on a special platform. At midnight the chant “Christos Anesti” (Christ is Risen) is heard, and night turns to day as hundreds of fireworks are let off. At the same time the effigy of Judas, hanging on a raft in the middle of the lake, is set aflame. AGIOS NIKOLAOS EASTER is around our famous lake with the panoramic and picturesque view! See photos and check youtube!
  • Emmanuel's place in the ancient village of Kritsa is really primitive. Although very well renovated and two very good night's sleep, we found the kitchen and its facilities a bit to primitive: OK for lunches but not sufficient to prepare dinner. So, dine out in the village!

    Jakob2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • It is an absolut beautiful place to stay. Really! Wow. We loved it. Nice view from the balcony, a wonderful style inside and very good organized. Perfekt to relax and come down. Thank you. See you next time.

    Kimberly2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Original accommodation, you can see that the house can be repaired and equipped tastefully and with love.

    Jiri2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • A gem of a place worth much more than what it goes for. Probably much more attractive in summer but was fully functional in winter as well as we were warm and cosy. Manolis was welcoming, attentive and yet also laid back.

    Valentina2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • super friendly host has shown us in spite of very late arrival time still everything in detail. Accommodation was very well maintained and clean overall very recommendable

    Rainer2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Having read the previous reviews for Manolis and his place, I was aware my expectations might be unrealistically high; my expectations were in fact exceeded. This is a truly lovely place to stay (we were there for a week, and frankly, would have loved being there even longer) - everything suited us perfectly the house (and the view), the village (pretty, welcoming, well situated) and Manolis himself who was thoughtful, attentive, charming and who absolutely went the extra mile to make our stay memorable and special. Thankyou for everything Manolis.

    Cathy2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome balcony view in a nice diy renovated house.

    Dalim2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • The place was so beautiful. Everything was exactly as described. Very clean and comfortable. The balcony is awesome for having a breakfast or dinner outside, just hang out or watch the beautiful sunrise. Manolis was a great host and introduced us to his place. Thank you!

    Søren2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in the villa. The view is just beautiful and the place is quiet and exotic. The villa is very well located, there is plenty to see in the area and beautiful walks in the olive groves. Stelios was super welcoming and gave us good advice on things to see around.

    Céline2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Housing and ideal landscape. Rest and tranquility. The swimming pool on Olivier's fields is breathtaking. To redo without a doubt

    Alicia2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a marvellous holiday in Stelios' house. Literally unforgettable. We mentioned directly to Stelios that maybe he could put in a few more cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. But in Greece no one eats at home in the summer anyway. You're always out for the evening meal at one of the incredibly cheap and wonderful tavernas.

    Franco Louella2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place with great views and a nice pool. Loads of amazing places to eat near by.

    Ben2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this place - quiet, peaceful, private - stunning scenery gorgeous plunge pool, BBQ’s at sunset - amazing

    David2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice accommodation with great views of the mountains. Fantastic pool was very well maintained. Good starting point to experience something new every day, have tried all the bays. Also got great restaurant tips from Stelios and the homemade cakes to welcome was delicious

    Jenny2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Stelios welcomes us on arrival and check in was easy. The villa has spectacular views and the pool was welcomed in the heat. The villa is comfy and air conditioned but the main selling point is relaxing outside by the pool looking at the views. There is an outdoor BBQ which we made use of throughout our week away. You will need a car to access the property and are not far away from some lovely villages and beaches.

    Treis Ekklisies is a village where most homes are summer houses of locals from the neighboring villages. It is mostly populated in the summer season and even then mainly on the weekends due to most inhabitants' engagement with grapevine and vegetable cultivation which are both very demanding during summer months. Few tourists visit here (so far), thus making it the perfect destination for relaxation, stress-detox, beach living, hiking and nature site seeing. In our neighborhood - as in everywhere in Treis Ekklisies - houses are small & detached, very close, often touching each other. So in (the relatively rare) case that neighbors are in, mutual respect must be shown for each other's comfort, especially in the late noon-early afternoon hours. 3 pm to 5 pm in Greece are hours of "common quietness" by the law. Most people are friendly and say "good morning" & "good afternoon" to everyone regardless they have met them or not. Also, since most know each other, they prefer to populate the main beach in front of the village to swim and socialize. That leaves the adjacent more beautiful beaches completely empty, almost private for anyone that doesn't mind walking 5 to 20 minutes! In most of south Crete long mountain ranges isolate the inland from the south sea (the "Libyan Sea"). "Asterousia" mountain range is playing this role in our case. Asterousia mountains have a very special distinct energy that can be felt even by people most insensitive to such things. This is so much so that they're considered Crete's holly mountains. One can find churches and monasteries in every isolated beach, hilltop or gorge due to the landscape's steepness that oozes an almost sacred aura.
  • This place is truly a gem and the perfect place for a honeymoon. My husband and I stayed here in March 2020. George & Anna are exceptional hosts. They were excellent at communicating via text, always asking if we needed any local tips or had any questions. This was incredibly comforting and kind. When we arrived, there was a home cooked meal in the oven and it was delicious! The house is very well stocked and is only a few minutes walk to the beach. The ocean waves can be heard from any room in the house. We enjoyed the quietness and remote aspects of the town and there are many gorgeous beaches and hikes close to the village. We can't wait to come back one day! Thank you George and Anna!

    Melissa2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a true gem for anyone looking for getting away from it all. The house is comfortable and well stocked. George and Anna left us dinner, olive oil and other treats. The beaches and hikes here are spectacular.

    Julie2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • George and Anna are the perfect hosts. Sadly we didn’t get to meet however we felt completely welcomed into their amazing home. We stayed for 1 week and had everything we could possibly require. Waking up every morning to the warm sun and olive tree view... Bless your hearts sweet people, all our love, Lou, Paul and Zoe xxx

    Lou2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a unique week of rest at George and Anna's cottage. This is a special corner of paradise, in a secluded village where you have the feeling that time has stopped. Both seaside and mountains are literally all around the cottage and they overwhelmed us with their beauty and wildness. This cottage offers the precious possibility of living outside, thanks to its gorgeous double terraces equipped with everything you need to have meals, to shower after swimming, to read, to have siesta with view... Both Taverna Marinela and Café Vaggelis were opened until end of October and we enjoyed very much spending sometimes at their tables, playing backgammon, eating and drinking and watching the Libyan See. We didn't meet George and Anna, but we had the feeling of knowing them personally, since their reactivity was so quick and since they had left so many little presents for us at our arrival! Thank you George & Anna to share this astonishing place.

    Ester2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Its so many good reviews about this place and owners. All its true and hard to add something new :) Thanks for perfect stay !

    Rytis2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely and relaxing place to while away the days in the sun. If you’re after the hustle and bustle of Malia or even Chania, then this place isn’t for you. If you’re after a place that feels down to earth and far from the glitz of the tourist traps then this may be the village for you. The house is a gem. We were here from mid September to nearly mid October and wiled away many a day on the deck with a book, punctuated with a cool off swim in the ocean. You can be as self-sufficient as you like or just hang out at one of the Tavernas on the beach with a cold Mythos in hand. We felt very at home here and used this property as a base to explore the Asterousia mountains, it’s villages and scenery. The dramatic setting of Tres Elklisses and the soaring mountains behind it kept us looking skyward as the vultures and eagles whirled on thermals. It all made for a memorable honeymoon, George and Anna are great hosts, very good to communicate with and also a good source of info on Crete and places to see. This place will now hold a special place in our hearts. Matt and Philippa

    Matt2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Paradise place everything is conducive to serenity and total disconnection ... Ana and George are exceptional hosts of kindness and very attentive. If you are looking for peace and authenticity it is here. The only negative point is to leave !!!

    Isabelle2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend this adorable little house, for its exceptional location, away from impersonal tourist complexes and for the welcome of Georges and Anna very attentive to the welfare of their guests. A small homemade dish was waiting for us on our late arrival and this set the tone for the rest of the stay. Thanks to them !

    A spacious single-room apartment accommodating a family up to 4 people, fully equipped with all modern comforts in the kitchen, air-conditioning, the bathroom. The Elia, inspired by the tree that took Crete to the end of the earth, the fruit blessed for its nutritional value, overlooks the pool of the complex and the sea that spreads out before it.
    Surroundings Between Agia Pelagia and Ligaria. Two calm, sparkling clean beaches cooled down by the clear blue that stretches before them. Just a few minutes’ drive from the centre of Heraklion, the Agnanti complex with the six separate areas of accommodation, gazes from high up into the splendour of the sea and the tranquillity of the surrounding Cretan landscape, wild and hospitable all at once. From the organised exterior but also from all interior spaces, the view sprawls uninterrupted, beckoning for exploration and relaxation. A spacious single-room apartment accommodating a family up to 4 people, fully equipped with all modern comforts in the kitchen, air-conditioning, the bathroom. The Elia, inspired by the tree that took Crete to the end of the earth, the fruit blessed for its nutritional value, overlooks the pool of the complex and the sea that spreads out before it. Small decorative strokes, details of mindfulness in the kitchen and bathroom, soft and fragrant linen, all contribute to the fashioning of a warm, friendly place of accommodation.
    **** Some info of the near bays *** The beautiful and calm gulf of LYGARIA in only 400m away. It is a lovely narrow stretch of sand with calm and warm crystal clear waters. Watersports, scuba diving, sea beds, super markets and fish tavernas make this spot one of the most famous in the area. The AGIA PELAGIA sandy bay is about 2 Km away. It is protected from the north winds, and the sea is almost always calm. AGIA PELAGIA village has developed around its shores, so that's where you'll find many of the tavernas and cafeterias. In the center of Agia Pelagia you will find a super market, tourism offices, pharmacy, an ATM, tourist and souvenir shops and the taxi stand. There are many restaurants and tavernas featuring Cretan, Greek or international cuisine, and all have a beautiful view of the sea. As you dine in Agia Pelagia, you can also partake of the wonderful scenes around you, and snap these memories into a treasured photo album: the various shades of the rippling sea, the cute little kid building a sand castle, the old fishing boats anchored in the bay, the fishermen preparing their nets for the night's labour! Beautiful and peaceful, non crowded neighborhood Just 15 to 20 min drive from the airport. The place has a secure private parking for your car.
  • This place was amazing George was an amazing host he told us about local hot spots and let us use his BBQ. This place has everything and would be great for larger parties as he has several rooms.

    Andrew2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Peace and quiet with a relaxed warm friendly host

    Clare2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • One beach in walking distance and another a five minute drive. Both with beautifully clear water. Apartment as described and George is a friendly and helpfulness host. We explored a lot of Crete so it was perfect to be able to come and go as we needed and have a lovely place to come home to with a fridge for cold beer 😉

    Fran2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice stay. George’s communication was brilliant, we received a personal welcome and introduction to all the facilities. George also messaged us with recommendations of things to do and places to eat. We made use of the washing machine, gym and the pool. We didn’t cook dinner for ourselves as the tavernas nearby were so good. The equipment in the apartment is excellent including toaster, sandwich grill and microwave. Exactly as the photo, our apartment was right by the pool so we enjoyed breakfast on our patio in the sun. The view is simply stunning! The location is also quiet.

    Dawn2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was nice and clean. George is a very friendly and considered host. Besides the baby cod, he provided also baby bath and baby chair, even we didn’t particularly ask for these items. George also gave us his recommendation for restaurants, places to go etc. Thanks a lot!

    Katharina2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • George's hospitality, quick communication and local recommendations helped make our stay a very enjoyable one. The pool was lovely and the apartment was cosy. Exactly what we were looking for.

    Colin2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This was a splendid spot to stay!! The communication was great as for we loved the fact we could check in early (due to early morning ferry arrival). George was there to greet us and show us around the property. Our room was very spacious. George sent us some local tips on eating and sight seeing and told us that the beach was literally just a 10min walk down the road. George was also able to arrange a taxi for us to return to the port. Highly recommend one gets a vehicle so you can explore more of this beautiful island!!

    Tawnya2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • George was attentive and gracious throughout our stay. Helpful in every way. The views are amazing. Comfortable unit except the A/C is not cool enough in the bedroom. Only a slight inconvenience. I would certainly stay again.

    Agia Pelagia , Heraklion Crete, Greece

    Seemore Seaside Studios Selene is a beautiful mediterranean feeling seaview appartment in the Koum Kapi district, a minute walk from the majestic Old Town of Chania.
    This studio was designed as a quick escape from the city. The seaview and ethnic design with bamboo and teak wood furniture gives off a natural, warm and relaxing vibe. It is suitable for couples. Being a studio the living room, bedroom and the kitchenette are combined in a single room. As of April 2017 it has been fully renovated with new furniture and a new bathroom, providing all comforts to it's guests, some of these are: -A super comfortable European Queen sized bed (160cm x 200cm mattress) -Large wardrobe to store all your personal belongings -Double shower cabin with a rain shower head to enjoy some extra long showers! The room opens up to a large balcony where the guests can sit back, relax and enjoy the summer breeze. The direction of the room is east so early risers can enjoy the sunrise above the mountains while drinking their coffee. You may even be one of the lucky ones to book during the full moon phase and enjoy it's majestic view. The studio is on the second floor of the building. There is no elevator, it is accessed through stairs. The basic kitchenette can be used to prepare cold dishes like sandwiches, salads, etc.
    The Koum Kapi district is the ideal location to enjoy Chania. The presence of the sea gives off a sub-urban feeling while still being a few minutes away from the city centre and the beautiful attractions Chania has to offer. The most central part of town, the central market is a ten minutes walk while the famous Old Venetian harbor is just five minutes! There is a variety of cafes, restaurant and bars in the neighborhood where you can have a nice lunch or enjoy a cocktail at night. During the summer months cultural events, concerts, live music nights take place at the Akti Miaouli coast. Every Saturday the local ground market takes place at the Nikiforou Foka Str. right where the appartment is located. They say that the "Laiki Agora" is where the heart of the Greece beats, It's something you definitely have to experience! You will find fresh vegetables and traditional delicacies there from the morning until 14.00. If you're an early riser you'll love watching the sunrise above the mountains in the morning over a cup of hot coffee. For athletic types the Chania National Stadium is less than 100m from the apartment. A morning job by the sea is a great way to get your day started. At the end of The Miaouli coast lies a small natural beach with crystal clear water, where you can take in some sun and have a quick dive to cool off. Just 50m from the studio!
  • A wonderful, spotless apartment with stunning views. Despite the bad weather, with such a view, it is worth visiting. Highly recommended!

    Thodoris2020-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view and location! Simos is the perfect host!

    Tony2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Simos was a fantastic host. Very helpful and quick with communication. I had a few questions during my stay and his response time was great. The view out of the two massive glass doors is also unbeatable. Watching the sun rise each morning, and opening up the doors to hear the water was so relaxing. It’s not right in the heart of old town but only about a 3 or so minute walk. A great place to stay!

    Amber2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful helpful host. Beautiful , comfortable, clean apartment with a fantastic view in a perfect location.

    Lisa2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with a view, free parking. Very clean! Enjoyed my stay very much.

    Jaclyn2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay, view is astonishing, flat is just as described. Simos is a super host, he provided a heater as discussed and even help us to find a car with driver for a 1 day excursion. We realized that there was no microwave nor fourniture for cooking but there are so many places to eat near the flat that you don't need actually to cook at home. Besides, Simos owns a bar downstairs which is so cool and alive, you can have breakfast, lunch, teatime, dinner and night cocktail everyday! Take care Simos!

    Frederic2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Simos' apartment has the most beautiful view of the sea and also the sunrise! He also welcomed us to the apartment personally and showed us around his place. All the amenities were good and adequate for our stay. We had a comfortable stay here, thankyou!

    Amy2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful location with great sea views. This was the perfect place to relax after six weeks of whirlwind travel. Simons is a gracious host. We want to come back.

  • Perfect localisation (10 min maximum by foot to reach the old center ) 1min from beach everything around (bakery boucher supermarket coffe restaurant) and the appartement is really good !!

    Julie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Alkis confirmed our last minute stay very quickly. He scheduled a taxi to meet us at the airport upon arrival and to pick me up to return to airport. It was a very nice touch. He is quick to respond to messages.

    Karma2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful stay for the family. All amenities were provided. Great place in all :)

    Adwait2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Alkis was very thoughtful and friendly. He was responsive to all our requests including arranging transportation via taxi etc.. The proximity to the Venetian old town Harbor was very convenient. The place is close to the beach and within walking distance of every place we wanted to go in CHania. The price was good and I would recommend this place to future guests.

    Cathy2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Alkis and his brother Diamantis are such wonderful people. They were so helpful during our entire stay there. Diamantis went out of his way to arrange a rental car for us. He was warm and friendly and made us feel at home. The place feels like a home and is a minute walk to the closest beach to Chania town. It is about a 15 minute walk to the old town. It worked perfectly for us as we were away from the chaos yet close enough to restaurants and the old town. It was an amazingly comfortable stay and would recommend it to anyone visiting Chania/Crete

    Kartik2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, nice location few minutes away from the sea, and city center. Apartment has everything guest would ever want, Alkis is amazing host, he is very helpful, responsive even in the late night, also printed boarding passes for us.

    Vasyl2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is super unique! It really is only steps away from the beach. The street is very quiet and it was easy to find parking for my rental car right out front. Alkis was a fantastic host. He was always easy to get in touch with, provided recommendations, and quickly attended to our needs and concerns. If you’re looking for something spacious with beach access, this is it! Would recommend.

    Carley2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Alkis was a superb host whose immaculate apartment was a delight to stay in and well-equipped with every needful amenity and excellent views. The bathroom sparkling & modern, both mattresses was super comfortable and the host inviting welcoming and accommodating. He was utterly sweet, extra responsive, and helped me find my way around town. Staying there was more wonderful than I could've hoped for.

  • The place was just perfect. The apartment has a great location, with the view of the beach and the sea from both rooms. The apartment itself was very clean and had to many beautiful nice details. We loved the small gifts from Marianthi, thank you so much! We didnt missed anything in the kitchen or in the apartment, we even had Netflix, so theres really nothing you could miss. The city Agios Nikolaos was beautiful, and we enjoyed our stay there. I can highly recommend to stay at her place! :)

    Natalia2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don’t lie. The Splash is a wonderful, spacious, stylish and comfortable “home”. There’s nothing that Marianthi hasn’t thought to include and the amenities provided far exceed expectation. The treats of fruit, juice and jams were very welcome. The apartment is brilliantly located for a dip in the sea, a evening walk or just enjoy a drink on the balcony. Easy access to restaurants, the harbour and town centre. Parking was easy (February) and Marianthi and Thodoris are delightful and hospitable hosts. This one sets the benchmark so high it’s a little hard to follow.

    Christine2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent hospitality and an absolutely stunning space!

    Kristen2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great hosts, very helpful and friendly. Very lovingly furnished accommodation, you immediately feel at home. The view of the sea has a healing effect. Those looking for peace and 'healing' are in the right place here in winter. Highly Recommended.

    Gizem2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • The Splash offers beautiful views of the Cretan sea from the balcony, walking to just one of the local beaches in less than 30 seconds. I arrived in a fluster needing some help, and Marianthi was kind enough to come and get me. I was welcomed and introduced to the property like an old friend. The supermarket is nearby, and Marianthi suggested excellent local tavernas. I can't recommend this property enough.

    Farhana2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • I have stayed on over 20 airbnbs and this was hands down the BEST airbnb in which I've ever stayed! I looked just like the pictures. The water is just across the street. A charming neighborhood. Mari and her husband are great and provided recommendations. Other airbnb hosts could take a class from them. I am a solo traveler and the space and location were perfect. Mari helped me coordinate how to catch the bus fro the airport to her place.

    Kris2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Marianthi’s place has a fresh airy charm to it enhanced by the 2 sets of double doors opening on to the terrace overlooking the bay where you can watch the swimmers even in mid November. Her hospitality includes all you need for a simple breakfast including coffee, tea, bread, homemade jam and fruit. (There’s a supermarket nearby but so many great restaurants to choose from...) The rooms are airy, clean and comfortable. She and her husband were most welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Sally2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t ask for a more thoughtful and clean Airbnb! There’s an amazing view of the sea right outside on the porch and the house is very well decorated!

  • We are so glad that we had chosen to stay in George's and his lovely wife's place! It had been amazing and definitely not a forgettable experience. George and Phaffy (I am sorry if the spelling is wrong :) )are extremely welcoming people. After a quite long and tiring journey we had been welcomed warmly with the drinks and fresh fruit, also I had lost my phone on our journey and George and Phaffy had kindly provided assistance to help us to sort this problem out, which was very kind of them and definitely much appreciated. Moreover, we have received the piece of paper with instructions and recommended places to visit and to eat, which was useful during the stay. The accommodation run by George and his wife is stunning. Our apartment was perfect, you could see the attention to every detail, we had a balcony with the marvellous sea view and small patio where we could chill a little bit. All the place is more than charming, I cannot think of any words to describe this place as it was just perfect for us. I would definitely recommend to try their breakfast offer as well, as you can enjoy quite big range of choice of high quality local products while having the table outside with the beach view, which is amazing! I loved the fact that some of the products where their own like olives or olive oil! It was delicious and we are happy that we had a chance to try their local cuisine. At the end of the stay we had been treated with traditional sweets and also George gave as a lift to bus stop which was very kind of him. To sum up, all the experience was amazing, George and his wife extremely hospitable, accommodation I would rate for 5* as well as the food and the views you need to see by yourself :) Thank you George and Phaffy for hosting us, we are in love in Crete and your place and we will definitely stay in your place once again in the future! Kind regards, Roksana and Anthony

    Roksana2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the end of July in the super nice accommodation of George. The complex is very well maintained and invites you to relax. The pool was also very well maintained, despite several accommodations in the area we had the pool mostly for us alone. George had many helpful local tips for us. We would book this accommodation again at any time.

    Janine2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • My sister and I had a lovely time at Bellevue. George’s (and his wife’s) hospitality was outstanding, as were the views from our apartment and the pool. We highly recommend staying here

  • George and his wife are great hosts! We were welcomed warmly with some Greek snacks and wine and with many recommendations what to do on Crete. The view was amazing and the room was decorated with a lot of love! We stayed at Bellevue for 11 nights and felt like home. We would definitely book it again :)

    Ierapetra, Lasithiou, Greece

    Spacious →Unique →Location →Comfort ✓ My beautiful house is centrally located in the heart of the city, next to the Archaeological museum. It is less than 5 minutes walk from all the city’s historical and culture sights including the Venetian Harbour and sea front. It is also close to the best restaurants, coffee shops, bars and amenities but is perfectly located on a small and quiet side street. You’ll love my place because of the ambience and unique style of the house and the neighbourhood.
    The house has been carefully renovated and refurbished in 2017 and stylishly decorated according to my own personal taste. It is designed for two couples, four friends, a family or 2 persons having their own room. This stylish gem boasts huge airy rooms and original features. The location and unique character of the property make this an ideal choice and you cannot find something similar in the city centre.
    The house is ideally located on a quiet side street in downtown Heraklion close to the central city square. It is in a perfect location to explore the city as everything you can imagine including the city’s most important sights, best restaurants, coffee shops and bars can be reached in less than a couple of minutes on foot. It is seconds from the famous Archaeological museum; one of the most important museums in the world due to its collection of findings from the Minoan civilisation. It is also 5 minutes from the sea front, harbour and port. The neighborhood is considered as a quite one however some street noise is unavoidable due to the citylife.
  • Haris deserves the title of super host!his hospitality was perfect and his house very beautiful (more than the photos show)very clean and very central.we went everywhere on foot.he even offered to us delicious homemade cake by his mother.would definatelly come back and recommend it with no doubt.thank you Hary.we will see you again soon

  • A true love at first sight!!! It is not only the outstanding character of the house, its perfect location in the city centre, its bright cleanliness, but along with this-or on top of this- is its impressive, unique positive vibration. The overall feeling was that love, care, respect, zest and enthusiasm was there, fully embracing us, its temporary residents. Words are not enough. Haris is a gifted superhost. We just can't wait for our next stay at this miniature paradise!!!

  • This place is incredible! The views are amazing and it is incredibly close, walking distance in fact, to every place we decided to visit except for Knossos. The loft is very well decorated and just lovely. Taxis are parked in lines just across the street if you should need them, and there are multiple incredible restaurants immediately to the left and right of the entrance. Marianna brought us fresh fruit from the farmer's market and was always a quick message away if we needed anything. She keeps a lovely packet in the home filled with information on the surrounding areas, recommended places to eat, and just tips in general. I really hope we can come back because this is the most wonderful place I've had the pleasure of staying at. If you visit please say hello to Mr. Psi for me, her shy, outdoor cat that can be found sunbathing near the entrance of the building.

The balcony was great and the location was great too! Marianna is a great host and is helpful, easy to get ahold of and explains how to get to the Airbnb which is awesome! You gotta stay here!

    Miranda2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

    Matty2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Marianna was the perfect host and the balcony apartment was everything I could want and more. Central to everything, food, coffee, attractions, and shopping. Fully stocked, comfortable, and lots of hot water. The best part was the balcony to relax and enjoy a view of the coast. This place is highly recommended .

    Jurgen2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Marianna’s place is in a great location, a quick walk to the Venetian fortress and wall, and to the port. Plus the balcony was great for relaxing at the end of a long day and watching the planes and boats go by. Marianna was quick to respond with any info.

  • Wonderful vacation at Zabia & Andonis's place. The apartment was stocked with Zabia's amazing olive oil, and the most delicious oranges from her garden. She provided many helpful tips about places to visit and activities in the area. And she always responded immediately when we had questions or a little problem (for ex. a light that was out, that was quickly fixed). The apartment itself is situated right over the beach. The view from the huge balcony is gorgeous- we watched the sunset there almost every day. Highly recommend a stay here!

    Noah2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay and we will choose the same address when we next visit Crete. Thank you again for your hospitality :)

    François2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place!!! Homemade olive oil in the cabinets. Super well stocked so we made great and healthy meals. Maybe 4 feet from the beach, literally cannot get a better location!! You will love staying here and meeting Zabia; she and Adonis are absolutely fantastic hosts and some of my favorite people. Her spanakopita is bonkers amazing. The water was great even in November. Enjoy!

    Johnny2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment of Zabia and Adonis is great !! The terrace is breathtaking with an incredible sunset (we arrived on time not to miss it). There is what you need around to have a good stay! (restaurants, small grocery store, car rental ... secret beaches !!) Cretan hospitality was confirmed, and we really felt welcomed and our children loved it! We met Zabia and Adonis at first and we ate together one evening at the restaurant at the foot of the apartment. I recommend this place for your holidays!

    Matthieu2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time in the apartment, especially on the huge balcony (with direct sea view, as in the photos). We were 4 adults and from the place it was great. The kitchen is well equipped with enough space to cook together comfortably. Especially on the very well filled fridge on arrival we were very happy! Dishwasher, washing machine and beach equipment are available. The location is great! The sea is right outside the door, various restaurants, taverns and a supermarket with bakery are within walking distance. Zabia and Adonis are the perfect hosts. They have received us very warmly and generously and were always with good tips (from beach recommendations to taxidermist) reachable! We would definitely recommend this place!

    Marcel2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Apartment very well located with a large terrace with exceptional views and incredible sunsets. Very quiet place while having a pleasant animation and very friendly and warm at the foot of the apartment Environment with Matala and exceptional red beach Not to miss !!!

  • excellent reception and terrace quite exceptional. remarkable location away from the turmoil of tourists. Sunsets, moon on the sea, perfect stay.

    Alina2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very well placed just above the beach, well equipped, but it is especially the view that is breathtaking. We will remember for a long time these aperitifs on the terrace, in front of the sunset. Zabia & Andonis are lovely hosts who are very responsive to all inquiries regarding the apartment or the surrounding area. They had put in the fridge enough to have our first breakfast, and even more! What hospitality! We are delighted with our stay ...

    Miller2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Cute old town pad, great for enjoying late dinners and drinks in nearby bars and restaurants and good base for exploring around Chania. Comfy bed. Good kitchen. If you have a car there is a parking lot about 5-10 min walk away, ask for clear instructions. I ended up paying for two hours in a parking lot and it wasn’t needed

    Tricia2020-01-30T00:00:00Z

Very quiet place with a little garden and a nice terrace to take a breakfast or a drink. Marianthi gave us a very warm welcome and helpful tips about what to do in the neighbourghood A best air bnb I ever had.

    Solange2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • We have our fourth holiday in Crete four (2 adults, a toddler and a baby) spent in a really nice and thoughtful accommodation by Marianthi. The equipment is excellent and nothing is missing! Many details and sunny and shady spots around the property have increased their quality immensely. We were warmly welcomed by the hosts. I can only agree with the previous recommendations. Great hosts, great accommodation and perfect location. Absolutely recommended also very for families!

    Annika2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect, many little details that make the place very special, we didn’t miss anything during our stay, almost felt like home... Marianthi is a great and very kind host 😊

    Lisa2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the “Eden for Two” room. The space is very well updated, great amenities and well maintained. This is perfect for two with some room to spread out. Marianthi adds a lot of personal touches to make you feel welcome and several great local treats to enhance your time there. The outdoor veranda is great for enjoying sunrise and the morning, and the front courtyard is a charming shared space. Several beaches within walking distance, Agios Nikolaos is a short drive, the neighborhood is peaceful and friendly.

    Tim2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 10 days in the accommodation of Marianthi. It is a very nice, quiet place to relax and unwind. The accommodation is very lovingly furnished and designed. Marianthi welcomed us warmly. From the terrace you have a beautiful view of the sea, which can be reached on foot in a few minutes. We would book the accommodation again and again.

    Karina2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at An Eden for Two for five nights at the beginning of September. The apartment was perfect for us. We especially enjoyed breakfast in the garden area overlooking the beautiful sea and breezy evenings on the patio with a glass of wine (Marianthi left us a bottle, among other goodies) looking at the stars. Also, we happened to have a couple of travel hammocks with us, so we put one up on an adjacent tree and we were both able to enjoy a few wonderful naps in the garden so it was the perfect Eden for us!

    Agios Nikolaos, Crete, Greece

    A traditional stone village house in Crete. It was renovated in 2015 with the personal touch of the owner, a local architect. It offers fabulous views over the sea. Enjoy a perfect sunset every afternoon! You can also book the adjacent Pomegranate house that can accommodate a further 5 people. Both houses are completely independent.
    It is time to relax far away from the crowds and enjoy the authentic Cretan atmosphere and hospitality! A traditional village house with wooden beamed ceiling, renovated with great care and attention to detail. The house features 1 bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom, 1 bedroom with single bed with en-suite bathroom, living room with open plan kitchen and a cosy terrace. There is AC, WIFI, Satellite TV, Weber coal BBQ. The property is on the front edge of the village and because of its elevated position it offers fabulous, unobstructed views over Mirabello Bay. Due to the west facing you will enjoy great sunsets. The large wooden table offers ample space for lunch/dinners with friends and family.
    Eastern Crete Eastern Crete, (east from Aghios Nikolaos) is the most authentic and unspoilt region of Crete since it is not touristically developed. It is the region that people from large Cretan cities (Heraklion, Chania) choose for their own relaxing vacations. Eastern Crete is mostly mountainous and the driving routes are winding and scenic, offering great views over wild mountains and the sea. In fact the whole route from Aghios Nikolaos to Sitia is considered on the best scenic drives in Greece. In this region you will meet writers and music composers who find inspiration in the sea/mountain views and the authentic village people. An introduction to Mirsini village Mirsini is a traditional Cretan village, unspoilt by tourism. It was incorporated during the Minoan period in the territory of the major Minoan city of Mochlos. It is located on Crete's northern main route, on the road from Agios Nikolaos to Sitia, 45 km from Agios Nikolaos and 23 km from Sitia at an altitude of 330 meters overlooking the gulf of Mirabello. It is famous for its great views (the village is west facing), its tranquility, the good food, wine and raki and for its hospitable and friendly residents. The village is surrounded by olive groves, fruit plantations, steep mountains and deep ravines. Restaurants in Mirsini Kathodon: a beautiful and cosy terrace within walking distance from the house. It serves traditional dishes and offers spectacular sea views. Another great restaurant is located in the neighbouring village of Mouliana, just 5 minutes drive from the house (it is open all year round during lunch and dinner hours). Shopping There is a small shop selling basic groceries in the village. In the neighbouring village of Tourloti there is a big market shop with fruits and vegetables as well as a bakery. For large supermarkets and a large wekkly fruit/vegetable market you will need to drive to Sitia town (30 min by car). If you prefer to avoid shopping we can stock the kitchen for you with all items you may need. The nearest pharmacy is located in the neighbouring village of Tourloti (5 minutes drive). Hiking If you prefer running water, lush vegetation and waterfalls, the entrance of Richtis gorge is a 15 minute drive by car, close to the nearby village of Exo Mouliana. The trail winds down the ravine for 4km passing from old bridges and abondoned watermills, through thick vegetation before reaching the sea at Richtis beach. If you choose to explore the mountains and the amazing views you can start from the nearby village of Lastros and head towards the chapel of Saint John and Kapsas peak or towards Saint Nikitas (5km round trip). Beaches The closest beach is in the village of Mochlos approximately 15min by car. The nearest large sandy beach is Tholos, at a distance of 20km towards Aghios Nikolaos. Sitia sandy beach is 23km drive from the house. There are various other great options available. We will provide information about the best beaches in the region. Sitia town It is the nearest town (at 23km from the house) with a large sandy beach, supermarkets, a weekly farmer's market and a hospital. For history and archaeology enthusiasts, Sitia's archeological museum display's exhibits dating back to the Neolithic era in 3,500 BC while the medieval fortress of Kazarma, situated at the top of Sitia is a reminder of the town's medieval past. Furthermore, the folklore museum exhibits items from the past century such as weavings, woodcuts and other everyday life items. During the evening you can visit one of the numerous small restaurants ("Rakadika") situated along the town's fishing port, which serve delicious variety plates along with Cretan spirit "Raki". And if you are up to it you can continue your night out until the early morning hours in one of the local bars and clubs.
  • We had a great stay in this lovely traditional house located in a very cute village. We were nicely welcomed, and we found some wine, cheese, greek yogurt in the fridge, as well as tomatoes and cucumber to make a delicious greek salad! The house offers a great view of the sea, it has a huge rooftop, which was great for looking at gorgeous sunsets! It was perfect for two people with a little baby.

    Anna2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very individual house in a typical and unspoilt Cretan village. The house is beautifully designed, fully equipped for comfort, very clean and has wonderful views of the sea and sunset. Small touches like having a cool bag for picnics on the beach were great. The roof terrace is a real bonus and ideal to watch the spectacular sunsets. We loved it. Our host was very responsive and helpful in answering any queries we had and we had a smooth check-in with no problems. Mirsini is a typical Cretan village and totally unspoilt by tourism. There is running water from a spring in the main village street that is fine to drink so do try it, delicious. There is one tiny shop and a lovely welcoming taverna with perfect views of the bay. And there is a potters studio at the top of the village that is well worth a visit. Eastern Crete is rugged and wild so take care with off-roading to remote beaches unless you have a jeep. Favourite beaches for us were Tholos, about 20 minutes from the house and Itanos, about an hour’s drive to the east but one of the most perfect beaches you will find. No facilities so take a picnic.

    Heather2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! We were well received with many welcome brands (wine, feta, cheese, raki). The house is perfect for a couple with 1 child. The bedding is very comfortable. We really appreciated the location of the house. The inhabitants of the village are friendly and welcoming. The tavern is excellent! If you want to discover a different ridge, far from the tourist circuits, this house is the best starting point :)

    Deborah2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Pantelis' house is the perfect location to explore the Eastern part of the island which is beautiful and still very peaceful even in high season. Ideally located in Myrsini village (beautiful village with a great sea view, delicious tavern and friendly people) close to beautiful beaches, the lovely Mochlos harbor and Sitia. The house itself is gorgeous, very nicely decorated, well equipped (the bedding is very comfortable) and pleasant to live in. The terrace in front of the house is surrounded by flowers and nicely shaded making it perfect to have meals, the roof top has an amazing view ad is a great spot to watch the sunset. The house seems close to the road but you can't see it and more importantly you can't hear it, it's very quiet. At our arrival, Aliki welcomed us warmly and there were lovely little attentions waiting for us (fresh vegetables, cheese and wine in the fridge). We enjoyed very much our stay and would highly recommend it to travelers!

    Gauthier2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • This typical Greek house is wonderful: better than the picture and a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mirabello. We spent a wonderful week immersed in the small Greek village of Mirsini. We were very welcome with some food in the fridge as well as a homemade cake. This is very welcome when you arrive late afternoon and do not really want to go shopping ... Pantelis (that we have not seen) had sent us good addresses and was available if necessary. In 7 days we saw most of what interested us. Our most beautiful memories (outside the house that will remain a great moment of happiness) Mochlos (Go eat at Dimitri), the Richties gorge, the beach of Agiomadra and a bit distant but beautiful deserted beach after an hour of walking in the canyon of Chochlakis but also the island of Spinaloga (to visit early in the morning because very touristy) without forgetting the city of Agios Nikolaos. In short I recommend this place and thank you to Pantelis for this rental.

    Loïc2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was lovely. A very warm welcome. And such a charming house, great local style and lots of details to feel welcome as guest and even at home our time in Mirsini. We enjoyed a lot Thank you

    Uli2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • This house is really an absolute must if you want peace and space in a beautiful local setting!

    Wim2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Pantelis cottage is very cute. The environment and the beaches were beautiful. Especially the sunset on the terrace we enjoyed very much. Also we had a lot of nice cat visit and you felt very well in the village. Within walking distance is a super tavern (cathodes) recommended.

  • Eri was an incredible host. The place was superb close to beach and easy to get to. No noise issues and she was super accommodating, she even had some wine and made us a New Years cake, which was delicious! I would definitely stay here again and say you must too!

    Jake2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This home will be your home away from home. Eri is so friendly and helpful. The apartment is quiet, relaxing, spacious and very close to a bus to get you downtown. Eri is very knowledgeable about the island. A very pleasant stay, I would happily return for another stay.

    Mackie2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was an extremely cozy and central located location. The room had everything we needed including treats from Epn! Epn was the most helpful and kind Airbnb host I have had yet. Her recommendations were great and she made sure everything went smoothly for our trip. I could not recommend this place enough!

    Luisa2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place deserves its very good ratings and Eri is a wonderful host!

    Sergios2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Eri's place was great! It is very close to the beach and market, and it is sunny and stylish. Eri brought me cookies and another dessert and was always available and quick to answer questions. There is parking right across the street. The Wifi works well and was good enough for me to do video chatting for work. The place is fantastic for the value... The only complaints I have is that the air conditioner works okay but doesn't get super cold, and then Eri's dog barks a lot. I think they are still training it so I'm sure it can be remedied! I recommend Eri's place for a great stay!

    Amy2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is unbeatable value for money with the beach at 100m and the city center is 10 minutes by car.

    Guillaume2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Eri is a wonderful, thoughtful host who makes you feel at home from the moment you walk in the door. She is very quick with responses to any questions you message her and was extremely helpful for planning my day trips to Chania and Rethymno. The space itself is spacious, very clean, secure, and decorated to exude a charming beachside feel. The space's location is very conveniently located within a block of a bus route that you can catch from many locations throughout the area. I loved the neighborhood around Eri's place and recommend allowing yourself a full day of just staying local to enjoy the beach and multiple Cretan restaurants in easy walking distance. This was my first ever trip to an island location and staying with Eri made it everything a peaceful getaway from the city should be.

    INTERESTING VILLAGES AND PLACES TO VISIT: LASSITHI PLATEAU Lassithi Plateau is one of the few areas in the Mediterranean with permanent inhabitants at an altitude over 900 metres. Have your camera loaded as there are many photo opportunities, especially early in the morning and in late afternoon. Dikteon Andron, the famous cave where Zeus was born, is located here. There are also many small villages on the plateau which maintain their traditional color and character. Don't hesitate to come out of your car and walk along the little streets. You will be rewarded with nostalgic sights of windmills and authentic farm living. *More in bottom The ancient Olive Tree of Azorias - Kavousi village he legendary olive tree in Azorias is located 1 km south of the village Kavoussi and very close to the homonymous archaeological site of Azorias. This olive tree is a natural monument; it is the oldest olive tree in the world! Indeed, it is grafted on a rootstock of a wild olive tree, making it the oldest sample of grafting in the world. The tree is located on the site of Azorias, on the road leading to the settlement Avgos. It belonged in 2008 to George Grammatikakis and it is a tree of Olea europea, of the variety Mastoeidis, locally named "mouratoelia". SPINALONGA - PLAKA - ELOUNDA Spinalonga is a small island near Elounda in East Crete. It is also known as the Leper Island, as lepers from Crete and the rest of Greece were quarantined there until 1957. Spinalonga is the most visited archaeological site in Crete after Knossos. The strategic position of the rocky islet for the control and defense of Elounda harbour has marked it with a turbulent history of fierce battles and much human suffering. ELOUNDA is located in east Crete, north of Agios Nikolaos and south of the seaside resort of Plaka. Elounda was once a picturesque fishing village in the lovely Mirabello Bay. In the hills around Elounda there exists a mineral unique to Greece, called “akonopetra” or whetstone, a type of fine emery used to make whetstones and emery paper to hone tools. Once discovered by tourism, Elounda developed into a resort famous for its beautiful scenery and the luxury hotels which are still being built in the area. It is said to be the place with the most five-star hotels in Greece. all over the world. This is also part of its magic, as many people dream of spreading their towel on the beaches of Elounda, where some famous person has been swimming. KROUSTAS Kroustas is a small village close to Agios Nikolaos on the island of Crete, Greece. Kroustas is known for its magnificent view of Mirabello Bay. It is also known for its traditional cuisine including myzithropites (special cheese pies), ftazymo bread and aiga vrasti (boiled goat). In the past people of Kroustas were shepherds and land workers. However, nowadays, following the booming of the tourist industry in east Crete, most of the village people work in the nearby resorts of Agios Nikolaos and Elounda. Characteristic of Kroustas is the smell of Raki distillery in October, the dry but cool summers, the dry and rocky landscape and the old ladies with the black scarfs and the wrinkled faces. What could you buy from Kroustas? Pure food like honey, almonds, walnuts, myzithra (soft sour cheese) and raki (locally distilled spirit). KROUSTAS FOREST HISTORICAL LANDSCAPE PARK One of the rare forests of eastern Crete was first systematically settled and intensively used by man about four thousand years ago. In the older Minoan Palace period (ca. (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) BCE) many agricultural installations (pens, enclosure walls) and house foundations were built with large blocks and are visible on the surface until today. The park offers marked paths through the forest along which many of the - unexcavated so far- Bronze Age ruins can be visited. KRITSA An alive village of Crete just at 9 km. from Agios Nikolaos. Kritsa first became inhabited in Minoan times, and its inhabitants are considered direct descendants of the ancient Cretan city Lato. During the Middle Ages and until the more recent times, Kritsa was the biggest village of Crete, with its 40 churches, extended on the entire south-west coast of Mirabello gulf until the plateau of Dikti. PANAGIA KERA 8km from Αghios Nikolaos and 1km from Kritsa, is found the tripartite Byzantine church of Panagia Kera. One of the most ancient churches in Crete, dedicated to Virgin Mary, Saint Anna and Saint Antonios. The church celebrates on August 15. KRITSA - KATHARO PLATEAU 16 km from Kritsa and 25km from Aghios Nikolaos, you will find the plateau of Katharo at 1200m on the foot of Lazaros. Katharo is fertile territory and holds shady Holm oaks, a wellknown target for Greeks and foreign climbers and nature lovers. Gorge of Kritsa The gorge of Kritsa begins at the north-eastern exit of the historical village of Kritsa and ends up at a flat area 2,5 kilometres to the north. Continuing in the watercourse from this point, one arrives at the entrance to the second section of the gorge, which is a lot more difficult. After a tiring climb, it leads to the foot of the Tsivi peak, over Katharo plateau. .................................................... PS: The municipality of Agios Nikolaos has the largest number of awarded beaches in Greece! HOUMERIAKO - FOURNI - KARIDI - MONASTERY ARETI - PLAKA - ELOUNDA Houmeriako is eastwards from Neapoli in the valley of Mirabello and is spread onto 3 small hills. In the old days, it constituted the seat of the Municipality. It is one of the oldest villages in the area. On this land many interesting churches are preserved: Agios Panteleimon, Agia Triada, Agios Georgios, Agios Kirikos and Agios Antonios. The "Romana Portella"(Roman Gate) that used to be the residence of some unknown sovereign, is an important monument. Nikithiano is a settlement next to Houmeriako, at 2 km from Neapolis. Small and picturesque, this settlement is known for its windmills; 15 windmills in a straight line. We reach the next village, Fourni, by going upward the slope. Fourni is constituted of 3 villages, Kastelli, Pano Horio and Kato Horio. The famous "School of Kerapolitissas" functioning in the past as the center for intellectuals. Hardly one kilometre from Kato Horio is another settlement, “Doriees” reporting to the Hellenic nation of Dories. In the next settlement of “Karidi” visitors could see the church of “Timios Stavros” (Holy Cross), the ruins of “Kardamoutsa” an old monastery as well as the Byzantine church of “Agii Apostoli” which has been qualified as archaeological because of its impressive murals. At the end of the way we discover the historical abbey of "Areti”, dedicated to Saint Trinity and situated in the middle of a stony and arid valley planted with some olive trees, cypresses and almond-trees. The Abbey was built during the Venetian period and has reached a big prosperity. It was the Seat of Bishops during the Ottoman domination. Today is completely restored and constitutes a unique attraction. VOULISMENI - FRARO – LATSIDA A very nice walk for any visitor is the distance between Neapolis and the settlements of Fraro, Voulismeni and Latsida. In the mid way between Voulismeni and Neapoli, the settlement of Fraro is planted all over with trees and vineyards. It was first appreciated in the 13th century by the Franciscan monks who were looking for a suitable place to built their Catholic church. Voulismeni maintained its noble character for centuries and is up until today considered as one of the most beautiful and tidy villages. At the west side of the village there is the church of Agia Ekaterini of the Venetian period with exceptional sculpted icons. Four hundred meters from the village at the foot of the mountain Kavalara you will find the Byzantine Church of the "Virgin Mary- the Vigliotissa", an old church destroyed by the Ottomans. Some ruins of the old cells are still saved and under the ruins there is a water spring. Latsida, a small traditional and picturesque village, is at one kilometer westwards from Voulismeni. VRAHASSI - SISSI - MILATOS Seven kilometres from Neapoli is the settlement of Vrahassi spread out on the rocky slopes of Anavlohos. Vrachasi is a village of a few hundred people and typical of many around, but it has some interesting features and the traditional Cretan architecture is well preserved here. The main square of Vrachasi sits close to the road and has an excellent view into the valley below, through which passes the main highway between Agios Nikolaos and Heraklion. Milatos Village is a picturesque community about a kilometer before the coastal Milatos settlement. Many Europeans have bought old village homes here, and refurbished them in the original style. Armed with a camera, a walk through the narrow village streets will provide you with many wonderful snap-shot memories of your holiday. Milatos Cave Lace up your sneakers and grab a flashlight and a bottle of water, and off you go to explore this very interesting site. Archaeological findings indicate that human activities in the cave date back to the Neolithic period. KOUROUNES - FRATHIA Kourounes (carrion crows) is in the middle region of northern Mirabello, in a distance of 4 km from Neapolis. Going north we reach the settlement of Frathia first and then the settlement of Perambela. Other smaller settlements next to Perambela, in a different and surprising landscape, are Petros, Peronides, Nofalias, Dilakkos, Adravatos, Romanos, Amigdalias, Souvlos and Finokalias. THE ANCIENT CITY OF DRIROS The first archaeological findings of this ancient city were discovered at the North-west side of Neapolis. Driros was completely unknown until 1855 when the plough of two farmers revealed the stone signboard with the oath of adolescents of Driros. This important finding was transported by the Turkish authorities to Heraklion and later to Istanbul. It’s an important archaeological site! AGOROI - KOUNALI - TSAMBI - AGIOS ANTONIOS - ANOGIA At the north side of Neapolis there is a road leading to small villages and settlements reaching down to the Cretan Sea. The visitor can access these villages from Milatos too. The first settlements are Kounali and Tsambi and then the small village of Agios Antonios. A bit further to the north we come upon the settlement of Anogia built on the slope of the mountain and not far from the sea. It’s a place known for its clean atmosphere. At the end of our way we face the splendid and unique view of the Cretan Sea and we can swim in the clear-crystal waters of this completely isolated beach. The Plane Tree of Krassi In the village square of Krasi, near Malia, there are three plane trees, trademarks of the village. The most important of them is the platan in the center of the square, which is considered to be the oldest and most majestic of the plane trees in Crete. The perimeter of the trunk is about 24 meters and its age is estimated at 2400 years, as it is said that each meter of the perimeter represents 100 years of growth. It is bulky, has huge branches and dense foliage covering the entire square. Next to the tree there are two springs that have crystal clear water throughout the year. The plane tree over its long history has witnessed countless events. It was the center of the social and intellectual life of the area. It is known that Nikos Kazantzakis, the most famous Greek writer, spent several summers of the decade with his friends in Krasi, the birthplace of his wife Galatia Alexiou. The olive tree of Azorias he legendary olive tree in Azorias is located 1km south of the village Kavoussi and very close to the homonymous archaeological site of Azorias. This olive tree is a natural monument; it is the oldest olive tree in the world! Indeed, it is grafted on a rootstock of a wild olive tree, making it the oldest sample of grafting in the world. The olive tree has been declared by the Association of Cretan Olive Municipalities as a natural monument because of the large size of its trunk and because of its location near three ancient settlements: Vrondas, Kastro and Azorias, where several artifacts related to olive oil have been uncovered. The tree is located on the site of Azorias, on the road leading to the settlement Avgos. It belonged in 2008 to George Grammatikakis and it is a tree of Olea europea, of the variety Mastoeidis, locally named "mouratoelia". Dicteon cave (continue) *Reading most tourist guides about the area, you are sure to see it described as a plateau of 10,000 windmills. There are also some old black and white photos showing thousands of windmills scattered throughout the area. Unfortunately, most of these windmills, with crude pumping engines and iron towers of simple technology, no longer exist. Originally, the locally-constructed windmills made their appearance in the valley at the end of the 1800s. During the 1950s there were about 4,000 of the structures offering invaluable assistance to local farmers. Today, with more modern means of irrigation and power supply, that number has been greatly reduced, depriving Lassithi of its unique identity. windmills in Lassithi plateau.However, there is much renewed interest in the restoration of the windmills, which would bring back the picture of the Lassithi Plateau as it once was. Exiting the Lassithi Plateau and heading towards Heraklion, there's an area just before the village of Kera where 24 stone flour mills dating back to the 1800s once stood. They operated until the end of WWII, but today most are in various stages of ruin, with only three restored so far. Just beyond this area is the Kera Monastery, famous for its beautiful frescoes. Anyway, they're both worth a look-see if you have the time. DICTEON CAVE The Dikteon Cave (or Dikteon Andron or Dictaean Cave) is one of the most important and famous of the 3,000 caves in Crete and the 8,500 in Greece. It is in the impressive Dikteon Cave, rich in stalagmites and stalactites, that Zeus was born according to legend. This is why the Dikteon Cave was already famous in antiquity, dedicated to the worship of the greatest of the gods, as the many offerings found there indicate. In our days the Dikteon Cave continues to receive many visitors, no longer worshippers, of course, but travellers from all over the world. SUMMER IN CRETE: During the summer months there are a lot of festivals concerning local monasteries, ancient temples and local products. For example the Eftazimo (traditional bread) festival in Kroustas, the Afentis Christ festival in Voulismeni (6 August) and celebrations for Mother Mary in August, in Neapoli (15 August). EASTER IN CRETE: Easter is possibly the best experience you can have on Crete! Check Easter in Agios Nikolaos You can celebrate with the locals in Agios Nikolaos. The faithful start gathering round the lake at 11 p.m. on Easter Saturday in order to get the best viewing positions. The priests come to the lake from a nearby church around 11:30 and the service of the Resurrection is held on a special platform. The atmosphere is magic! At midnight the chant “Christos Anesti” (Christ is Risen) is heard, and night turns to day as hundreds of fireworks are let off. At the same time the effigy of Judas, hanging on a raft in the middle of the lake, is set aflame. SPRING IN CRETE: Springtime is a perfect season for walking and you will find botanic beauties nowhere else to be found. You will enjoy the most attractive face of Crete, and it will offer you a carpet of flowers, high mountains capped with snow and villages that shows you daily life with all its social aspects. Snow falls in the mountain villages and the White Mountains are usually snow-covered from November to April. WINTER IN CRETE: Many visitors to Crete think that the island is only for summer holidays. But Crete is a perfect winter destination. By winter (November until late March). The island lies in the subtropical part of the Mediterranean and offers mild winters with many sunny days with pleasant temperatures. Mid October to Xmas is possibly the best time of year in the Southeast with consistently calm and sunny days. The locals are "more alive" than in the summer, since there is lots of work to do in the olive groves, fruit gardens and buildings. The sheep graze the fresh green from the mountains. When coming to meet Cretan friendship there's no better season than the winter. Touring around with a car, walking the country side, biking, bird watching or just strolling through the cities will offer you a relaxed holiday. In December and January, you can join the olive harvesting and follow the entire oil production from harvest to oil. I can inform you and arrange local activities depending on the period! September: Collection of vegetables October: Planting garden, Preparation of grapes November: Distillation of raki (traditional drink made of grapes) December: Olive oil collection January: Olive oil collection February: Fruits and wild herbs collection
  • Wonderful location for exploring this region of Crete whether you like beaches, archeology, hiking or simply drinking in the scenery and Traditional Cretan villages. The house is an integral part of the experience. Lovely!

  • Manolis is an excellent host. He goes above and beyond to take care of his guests. I stayed in two of his stays and he was kind enough to taxi me from one to the other. The 1870 traditional home was a taste of true village life. As a full time traveler I’m very fond of walking and always take busses (the bus stop is very close) but if you are disabled or have trouble walking this may not be right for you. I’ll be back though to wonderful Crete!

    Adriana2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice stay there. Check-In was really great, even with a tour through the area to show the important locations (super market, post, market, taverns etc.). Manolis was always friendly and very fast in answering all of our questions. The house was really beautiful and cosy. It was restored with lots of love for details. We are happy to recommend this beautiful location.

    Chris2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis is a nice host with great tips for creta. We had a wonderful time at his house

    Vanessa2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you are fond of wood and stone houses, then you are going to fall in love with this mezzanine, so much better than the photos provided. It is absolutely beautiful, functioning and bright with incredible view to the mountains. It is lovely and according to tradition decorated and built. It has a nice little yard, full of herbs and a pomegranate tree. It is located 10-15 minutes’ walk from the village of Neapoli. The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful. The only sounds one can hear are the ones from cicadas, birds and sheep. A real relaxation paradise! The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need in order to prepare your meals. The bathroom is so wonderfully pretty. The internet connection is great and reliable. It has a lot of light fixtures too. Manolis and his family are very hospitable, helpful, friendly and welcoming. I have 100% enjoyed my stay there and I definitely recommend this house!

  • Secluded and in a great position overlooking the village with a great view of the mountains. Very rustic and perfect for a relaxing stay. Did not see anyone walk past the house. Nice, stone front terrace with lots of plants and a pomegranate tree.

    Stephen2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • The house is wonderfully restored and well furnished! Perfect for 2 people. Strategically well located: away from tourism, in about 20-30 minutes you are on the most beautiful beaches around Agios Nikolaos. Manolis had all kinds of information on cultural and culinary questions ready for us. All in all a nice experience. We'll be back for sure.

  • The house is incredibly beautiful with a beautiful pool, in line with the announcement, everything is as in the photos. The apartment and the garden are very clean, the pool is accessible at all times. A beautiful decoration for the apartment and the garden.Maria is a very nice and available host. I highly recommend you.

    Ripsime2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and my girlfriend arrived in Chania Airport and used a rental car service to get to the Art Deco luxury suites. (Would definitely recommend hiring a vehicle for the week if your planning on visiting). The drive from the airport was extremely easy and we were able to find the apartments with relative ease as it was listed on google maps and was around 4 miles away. On arrival we were greeted by one of the most lovely hosts. Maria (owner of the apartments) showed us around the apartment and local hotspots to visit providing us with a map and a great deal of information about the local area. Throughout the week she was beyond attentive and just an incredible all round host. She was extremely welcoming and was always around if we needed her help! We always had the ability to contact Maria and she was extremely responsive through the Airbnb app. Whether it was fresh towels or bed linen or recommendations she was happy to help provide! The apartments are absolutely beautiful and the property was absolutely spotless! We had the pool pretty much to ourselves for the entire week and I must say its a beautiful place to sit in the evening winding down with a cold beer! (Extremely Quiet) Myself and my girlfriend were very lucky to get the ground floor apartments, where we could just hop over the walled seating area into the pool! The local town is situated about a 13 minute walk away. Hence the need for a hire car if you need to pop out for you daily necessities (especially in the heat). In the local town there is a bus that runs every half an hour to Central Chania (old town) where we experienced some fantastic eateries and some of the local culture such as the market and watching people being taken on a horse and cart rides. The food that we had when we went was amazing, but be prepared the portion sizes in some places are MASSIVE. On one of the evenings we decided to try a place that Maria suggested for some Gyros. We ordered 4 plates of different things thinking we would be served small servings. How wrong we were! On a serious note we cannot recommend this place enough! If your looking for the perfect getaway to recharge your batteries in an idyllic setting this is the place to come 5*. All in all fantastic week!

    Frankie2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place. Quiet location with great facilities just like the photographs. Good places to eat within a 15 min walk if you prefer not to go to chania. Mitsos was a very good place for barbeque. Nice beaches a short drive away. Our favourite was Stavros beach.

    Hector2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • We recommend this address. Home very friendly, rental consistent with the description and very clean. The pool is very beautiful. We were able to swim at any time, which was nice. Quiet neighborhood. We found very good restaurant nearby. The location is convenient for Chania or for excursions.

    Crystal2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very, very well. Maria is a great hostess. She gave us great restaurant tips :) The accommodation is very well equipped, the pool is an additional highlight.

    Melanie2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment are just as they look in the pics. I have been in a double room complete with living room (kitchen and sofa with the TV), bedroom king size bed and bathroom big enough. The apartment has almost everything needed to cook and live it with comfort. The place is at 6 or 7 km from Chania city centre and for me is prefect because it was quiete and away from caos. The is space to park the car on the street just outside the villa and move away whenever you want. I suggest the car or motorcycle to go to the best beaches in the region of Chania. Maria was a stunning host not invading at all but always ready on hand to give help. What else...enjoy Crete that is beautiful. Alfonso

    Alfonso2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Small nice studio. True to the photos (although it is no longer the same color, it has just been repainted in brown). Maria is a very smiling host and very welcoming. She lives on the spot which makes her very available. We had a very good stay.

    Take a nap in the shade of the towering trees, then fire up the outdoor oven for a leisurely dinner with incomparable ocean views. Nautical ornaments, typical Mediterranean blue and white tiles, and whitewashed floorboards complete this calm space.
    The apartment is tucked away in the hills of Katsikia, 2.5km from the town of Agios Nikolaos. The neighborhood is very quiet makes a stunning backdrop to the magnificent views of the Gulf of Mirabello. The nearest beach is around 1 km away on foot.
  • We had some wonderful days in the appartement. It is very cosy and very well decorated. Especially the view from the terrasse was amazing and we had breakfast every day there with a great view over the city and the sea. Chris was very friendly and helpful and it felt like home. We highly recommend to stay there!

    Hannah2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed in a number of places in Crete, and this was the most artfully decorated with really mesmerising views. The apartment is easy to find (instructions provided) and very comfortable, with all required amenities and a great shower. Efi and her family are really hospitable hosts- offering extra touches such as wine, cake and even hand-painted souvenirs. In terms of location, there are a number of consistently delicious restaurants around 8min drive from the apartment, near the waterfront, from traditional tavernas to something a little bit more modern. We had a really relaxing time and will look back fondly on our memories here... again, the view is unparalleled! If you are looking for somewhere to take it easy and you want to be away from the busy resorts, this is the place to be! Many thanks for our stay.

    Ieva2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Bella Vista was wonderful! The apartment was very cosy and super clean. The view from the balcony and the pool and the common area is amazing. The check in and check out was very good. Efi is a very kind Person. She had always time for us if we had questions and she gave us great recommendations for day trips and good Restaurants. We really enjoyed our holidays there and would absolutely recommend it to everyone!

    Saskia2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and his mother Efi are really the perfect hosts. We really enjoyed the stay and would come back anytime. Everything is clean, nice and stylishly furnished. Efi is a very nice woman and was always there for us and could give great tips for the environment. Thank you for the great days with you Efi and Chris!

    Henning2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is a little gem! It's a great size for either using as a base to travel the island or to just stay at the property relaxing around the pool. Both inside the apartment and around the property is beautifully decorated with little touches created by Efi that makes the place so special. We were made to feel so welcome and Efi and her sons were wonderful hosts - nothing is too much trouble. Gifts of homemade biscuits and fresh grapes were lovely and the late check out was very much appreciated. There are huge ceiling fans which keep the place cool - and air con too. The walk to Agios Nickolaos is quite a long one (not recommended in the heat of the day!) but taxi's are easy to book and cost about 8 euro's each way. Hiring a car is recommended if you want some independence. Please expect some "house rules" but they are only obvious housekeeping requests e.g. shower before swimming (the pool is especially clean so this makes sense), don't put air con on with all the windows open.

    Lois2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • We felt so incredibly well at Bella Vista! Our apartment was beautiful and with the creative and heartful Taste of Efi furnitured! Efi was always there for any question! We will Come back and we wish Efi all the best! Martijn& vivian

    Vivian2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very comfortable. The apartment was nicely decorated and everything was there what you need. The outdoor area with pool and garden was very nice. Everything was super clean and well maintained. Having a car is certainly an advantage as the accommodation above Agios Nikolaus is located on a slope. Holidays in the Bella Vista apartments are recommended.

    Claudia2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely and relaxing stay at Bella Vista apartments. The room was tastefully decorated and had all the amenities we needed as well as being spotlessly clean. We loved our terrace and enjoyed evening drinks most nights looking out over the fantastic view of the sea and towards Agios Nikolaos. The outside space is perfect for relaxing in the sun, with a nice pool, sun loungers and an amazing view. Most of all, we're very grateful for Efi's hospitality. She provided us with help whenever we needed it, Cretan wine, some very tasty homemade cake and was even kind enough to give us a lift to the beach one morning. We will very much miss Bella Vista and the cute cats and hope to visit again one day! Thank you Chris and Efi :)

    Katsikia, Greece

    This is a beautiful little house we bought and renovated from scratch with a lot of respect to the original materials of the house, and our artistic nature. It is in the area of Agia Triada, one of the oldest neighborhood of Heraklio, in the very center and by the water promenade. Our neighborhood is like a village in the city, not a touristic place but a real place where people live. Close to everything
    this is a unique house, from 1917 entirely renovated this year in our style with great architecture ideas. It is in the old town in a pedestrian area, we have bicycles that our guests often borrow to discover the sea promenade etc. There are two floors, the ground floor with the cooking area, dining area, a double sofa bed and one WC. The upper floor has one double bed and an open bathroom. We have extra mattresses in case you come with your children and want them to sleep upstairs with you. The house is cool because it is made of stone and because we did insulation and energy saving works when renovating it. The entire ground floor glass doors facade open in the summer to the front yard to create a bigger space.
    This area is old, traditional, not touristic and poor at the same time. Very interesting because next to the Natural History Museum, the waterfront, 5' to the Historical Museum.
  • The house has a very nice Aura! Very stylish but at the same time simple which is the most amazing thing because I could feel at home almost instantly! I was not exactly for holiday, but for work, though it made me feel very relaxed! and I spent the whole month and was even quite sad to leave the place. The neighbourhood is also very nice, so local! These simple things made may stay really nice! and oh, the terrace is absolutely amazing!

  • Wonderful host. Lots of help getting around and finding things to do. Amazing space, especially if you are artistic and like originality. Great home away from home.

    Rebecca2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place in a good location. Very nice the entire house with the balcony. Close to the see.

  • Maybe the best airnbnb I have visited so far. Definitely you should give it a try. Eirini is a great host that assisted me beyond any expectations. The area is very central, as described. I could live there forever 😁

    Georgios2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • My best stay RbnB without hesitation! First of all, the warm and friendly welcome, advice, culture, knowledge and happiness to share great moments. The benevolent presence of Eirini and Vincent, generous and attentive. Certainly the best way to discover Crete and its innumerable riches of which they are an inexhaustible source of knowledge in all the fields, culture, pretty places, good addresses ... Moreover the apartment is magic. In the heart of Heraklion, nestled in narrow picturesque streets where mix old and modern the apartment is spacious, very cosi, bright, very well decorated and very original, very well equipped ... it is feel good right away. And of course a roof terrace for sunbathing during the day and admiring the night sky at night. It's just the house of happiness ... And in more shops, museums, monuments and the heart of the old town a few minutes walk ... Thanks to you four ..

  • Our stay at Konstantinos Villa has just been great. The view of mountains and the sea is all around amazing. The villa isn't too big but who wants to be inside when you have such a wonderful roof top terrace anyways? And Konstantinos has taken great care of us and helped us out where he could. Anatoli is a great place if you want to enjoy the beauty of Crete but don't want to be in the middle of tourism. Thanks again for having us Kostas! We sure hope to come back :)

    Arne2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sublime place, even more beautiful than the photos! In the middle of the mountains, perfectly quiet, but close to Ierapetra for shopping, the market on Saturday morning or go to the restaurant (there is a choice!). The host is absolutely charming, very helpful if there is any problem, speaks very good English and recommended an excellent restaurant. In short, a perfect place to rest and enjoy the sweetness of Cretan life

    Melanie2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Konstantinos. Based on the pictures you'd think it's beautiful, but still it exceeded our expectations. The surroundings are amazing, everything you need for a pleasant stay is provided. We especially liked the different terraces to enjoy the view and the sun. Konstantinos has a lovely dog that came over to greet us every evening. We already miss her.

    Nanne2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house was spotless and the host very helpful!

    Kally2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • It's been great to be in Anatoli again! Even for short one and a half day we enjoyed our stay at the Villa M a lot because of the ceative way it is build with all the places to sit, the hidden corners and last but not least the pool. The landscape around is beautiful and we loved the silence of the place and the stars above us at night.

    Susanne2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place, very quiet. Great view, great swimming pool. Nicely cared for inside. Outdoor kitchen, bbq, even a fridge on the terrace. A must for those who love peace and quiet.

    Jan- Frans2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place! Absolutely beautiful set in the mountains! You really do get to experience Greece in it’s full beauty. The place is outstanding you won’t be disappointed.

    Faye2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Villa M was an absolute delight! We’ve arrived after a wedding on the other side of the island where we had plenty of company and Villa M was a much-needed silent paradise. Mother nature basically provided the only sounds to be heard particularly the cicadas and occasionally the odd dog barking nearby. The accommodation was spotless clean and well equipped. The Wi-Fi connection was very fast and reliable. It was great finding basic groceries – salt, oil, sugar, honey, jam, coffee powder, etc. We truly enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi with its great views. It is a bit isolated but that was exactly what we wanted and the drive everywhere was very easy, the roads in good condition and rather deserted even at the end of August. We highly recommend this place and would definitely go back.

    This little tower has been built on a big rock! It is located in Stomio village which is 5 minutes before the monastery of Chrysoskalitissa, the small beach "Aspri limni" and 12 minutes from the famous beach Elafonisi!
  • Never met the host in person. Her brother helped me and he was very hospitable. Although the room was a bit cramped it served my purpose perfectly. Location was very close to Elafinisi Beach, straight down the road. The farm atmosphere added to the experience. I saw a herd or sheep come down from the mountains to pasture and deer in the morning. I had breakfast at their restaurant and it was perfect. I definitely recommend it.

    Sherry2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. The location is great for access to Elafonisi Beach and surrounding restaurants. The farm aspect of the location is unique too. Family was genuinely welcoming. Would definitely stay again!

    Michael2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • nice stone house with lovely view of the mountains. room is actually smaller as it seems in the photos but enough for two. food in the family taverna is good!

    Sebastian2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • We spent one night in this place with my boyfriend. There is a restaurant next to it, the food was good. This is really a unique place where you want to spend a night. We appreciate it and we recommend it.

    Logane2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • You can not imagine a fancy place to stay. The mill is a place to feel good, down to the smallest details, the accommodation was designed very lovingly. The landlords are extremely hospitable and the adjacent tavern is absolutely to be recommended, also reflects the loving planning again. Great food, great ambience and sympathetic hosts.

    Robert2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • This family provided us an excellent family touch with their farm animals and generous taverna hospitality! They model family in its highest sense! We loved our stay! Joni & Deb Vancouver, Canada 🇨🇦

    Joni2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • we stayed two weeks at katerinas house! we had a great time - we had a car and made many trips to walk the gorges or costaltracks arround the area and stayed also at the beach of kedrodasos to relax like in paradise! the house is small but very special, proper and cosy. the hosts family were all very friendly and the taverne is perfect to eat with excellent food! there are lots of animals like chicken, rabbits, cats, exotic birds etc. and roosters who give you an early morning call. so if you have a car and like nature this is a perfect place to be!

    Birgit2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • A little bit of paradise! Katrina, her brother Yanis and all the family are wonderful (it really is a family run business) The Tower room is beautifully presented, a stones throw from their traditional restaurant (you won't go hungry or thirsty here!) and a gentle 15 minute walk to Stormio's beautiful beach - one of many in the area to explore. Amenities in the Tower are minimal, no facilities for making a hot drink so you will have to either use the restaurant or head further afield - but other than that it is perfect. We loved being surrounded by their animals; the deer, chickens, ducks, peacocks - their family dogs - it all felt homely (if you don't mind the early morning wake up up 😂) My favourite place on Crete so far - with perfect hosts xxx

  • Marianthi is a fantastic host, she truly cares about the well being of her guests. Her kindness and availability were greatly appreciated. The house is exceptional, very clean, beautifully decorated and the comfort was beyond our expectations. The place is front of the sea and very peaceful, I would 100% recommend Marianthi’s place, it is just impossible to be disappointed :) This Airbnb experience was simply the best !

    Florence2020-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed my stay at Marianthi’s place. The accommodation was immaculate and very stylish. The view from the balcony was spectacular even in February. The kitchen is modern, well stocked and great for self catering. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again if I return to Crete in the future.

    Steve2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • It is no exaggeration to say that Marianthi's house is by far the best Airbnb to live in. The house is very artistically furnished, from impeccable furnishings to furnishing details. The location of the house is very quiet, facing the sea, and it is very pleasant to be bathed by the Aegean sun on the balcony in the morning! The only regret is that the schedule is a bit tight, and it would be more perfect to stay for a few more nights. Five-star praise, thanks to Mariathi and her house of dreams for bringing good memories to the whole family.

    Hui2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The flat surpassed our expectations by far. From the master bedroom, you can see the ocean without leaving your bed. Amazing! It's all newly renovated, very clean, beautifully decorated and I imagine in warmer months it must be super relaxing to lie in the hammock on the front terrace and watch the waves coming in. Marianthi is a very attentive host who responded very quickly to any question we had during our stay and her husband Thodoris met us at the entrance to make sure we found the property when we first arrived at night. If your car navigation can't handle the address either, the coordinates in Marianthi's description work a treat on Google maps. We had a wonderful holiday and will surely be back.

    Karin2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Mariantha has created a truly beautiful space here, we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. She was also very helpful and attentive when it came to recommendations for restaurants, day trips, beaches etc, which we were very grateful for. We loved cooking here in the lovely kitchen with local olive oil and herbs from her garden. Would absolutely recommend Marianthas place!

    Ellen2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Design and a breathtaking view. Wonderful attention to our arrival.

    Mathieu2019-10-30T00:00:00Z

    Dounia2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Marianthi’s apartments are out-of-this-world. Even the pictures do not do it justice! Her attention to detail with decor, complimentary gifts and general recommendations for tavernas etc are one of a kind. We had the most wonderful stay and will definitely be back. If you are thinking of staying here - be sure to do so!!!

    This home is in the center of Kissamos town. It is close to markets, fruit and vegetable stores, banks, and a post office. The local beach is just a 5-minute walk, with Falassarna and Balos nearby.
  • Lovely apartment in easy reach of Chania, and Balos and Elafonissi beaches. Easy check in/out and Giannis was a great host.

    Hayley2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Giannis guest house was great. We had a very comfortable 5 day stay and Giannis was very helpful with giving us local tips of where to eat, what to explore and was happy to answer our questions. The layout of the guesthouse was great, it's very spacious and modern, the bed is nice and big and very comfortable. Giannis provided beach towels which was very handy because we didn't think to bring any with us. The cats where an added bonus who greeted us every morning at the front door and every time we returned home from a day out. The house is located conveniently to local shops and bigger supermarkets all within walking distance and the beach is only a 5 minute walk away. Overall we 100% recommend Giannis place for a comfortable and enjoyable stay in Kissamos.

    Nadine2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • There is not one thing I would change about this Airbnb and my experience. My favorite Airbnb I’ve ever rented. Location is perfect for any activity, restaurant or market yet is tucked away and private. Giannis was an amazing host. Would recommend to anyone.

    Breanna2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Giannis very much. The accommodation is very new and tastefully decorated which made us feel right at home. Giannis and his girlfriend were welcoming and attentive.

    Miguel2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very stylish place where I would have loved spending more days. Absolutely recommended!

    Veronica2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Superb apartment and Giannis is very welcoming! Well located in the center of Kissamos. Stay top!

    Gaetan2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • I spent some wonderful holidays in Giannis Guesthouse. The welcome was warm and uncomplicated. I was allowed to serve myself from the vegetable garden as often as I wanted, and the gardener brought a freshly baked bread over to greet me. Thanks to Giannis wonderful excursion insider tips I could enjoy the west of Crete far away from mass tourism. I especially recommend Giannis shop, which is equipped with sensational Greek delicacies at its best.

    Natascha2019-09-19T00:00:00Z

    Most comfortable stay that one can imagine. Memory foam mattress, all amenities a home could have. Traditional yet modern stay feeling!!! best of both worlds. Enjoy your vacation with garden space and patio lounge. Easy access to public transport.
    Small yet cozy home with its own patio and garden that the guests can enjoy. Comfortable bed for 2, and flexible sleeping arrangements for remaining guests if applicable. Extra guests have the choice of a sofa bed or up to 2 sinlgle beds. Newly renovated bathroom , this march of 2019, with brand new washer and a smart tv. Fast internet speed for netflix fans. Stone built, for cool temperature in the summer months.
    The neighborhood is surrounded by by everything a the guests would need on a daily basis. A typical local neighborhood, one would sometimes think that the streets are have no names from their size. Convenient store, mini market, butcher, bakery, family taverns, as well as a house market are all steps away. Close to the center, yet away from the traffic. Guests can get the real feeling of a chania neighborhood with the locals.
  • Very clean apartment, easy to find and with parking right in front of the property is ideal if you have a car. Away from traffic and Angeliki is always quick to respond in any of our questions. Definitely suggest the place to anyone with car.

    Matthaios2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, close enough to old town, if you have transport. Would very much recommend.

    Lloyd2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • I use Airbnb a lot and this property was one of the best, if not the best, that I have stayed at. Aggeliki was a a great host and the very thorough twice weekly complimentary cleaning service was a real bonus.

    Timothy2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing apartment as it is in the photos. Direct answers from Angeliki. Definitely the first choice when going back to Chania.

    Μιχαλης2020-01-13T00:00:00Z

    Dongni2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Aggeliki's place was great! No complaints at all. The place was spotless, and very well decorated. The bed was super comfortable and the apartment was very large. Aggeliki went above and beyond helping us and there was a book with recommendations for attractions, day-trips, and restaurants in Chania and around Crete. The location was nice as it was outside of the tourist area, and the walk into the town centre wasn't too long. It really gave you a sense of the real Chania.

    Geoff2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this stylish and really modern apartment! Good location with little mini-marts and restaurants across the street, easy checkin. The stairs are interesting though - be careful when looking for night time snacks or bathroom visits. Be sure to enjoy the outdoor space which is well looked after, private and very lovely, like a little oasis. The dogs in the neighbourhood are vocal at night, so bring ear plugs if that’s something that annoys you. Super easy parking right outside the door in the private parking spaces. This place had everything we needed and more for our two night stay. We’d stay again for sure.

  • Beautiful views, clean and stylish space. Chrysi was an amazing host. She walked us through the property, gave us a lovely gift basket with fruit from her family’s garden, and checked in with us to replace linens. Waking up to the beautiful bay view, the white mountains, and that ocean wind every morning was heaven. You could even hear the local goat herds walking home with their bells at night. There are 3 excellent restaurants and a market down the street and the location was central to everything on the island.

  • Nicely furnished house with beautiful view over Souda Bay! We enjoyed our stay very much and I can recommend everyone to spend his vacation here. Small tip for renovation: step-in shower instead of bath with shower curtain.

  • Excellent stay at Chrysi. The house is comfortable and clean. The small pool (common to other houses) is nice and the sea view is beautiful. The neighbor received us very well and remained attentive to our needs. I recommend this accommodation located near the friendly town of Chania.

  • The location is perfect for different excursions. The panoramic view is just breathtaking, and the small garden with the pool is beautiful, not to mention the beautiful sunset that can be admired as an aperitif! Chrysi is a very charming host who welcomed us very warmly. Pay attention to our arrival, very appreciable. The olive oil that his father produces is so delicious that we bought him before leaving. She also gave us very good advice. The house is very charming and very clean. The garden and pool perfectly maintained. The small village is nice and quiet with a grocery store and a very nice restaurant, the cretan corner. And there is also an archaeological site 10 minutes walk. I will return with my eyes closed ... or rather wide open!

  • At Bellevue at George and Fofi we feel so good that we do not want to leave. The location, the calm, the kindness of George and Fofi, the nice apartments tastefully decorated by Fofi, the good food and the very generous breakfast served by George, all that makes you just want to come back soon. thanks thanks Alain .Gaëlle

    Gaëlle2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • George and Fofi are very welcoming and you feel right at home right away. The rooms are big and very clean, with small kitchenettes. George is very helpful on all requests (find a taxi, a rental car, a restaurant ...) and their dinners are delicious! (book in advance) The pool is nice although not heated. A beach and 2/3 restaurants are within 10 / 15mn walk and a larger beach and other restaurants 20 / 25mn walk. Great stay, thank you for everything!

    Valentine2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Super warm welcome by George and Fofi! The room was neat and tidy and equipped with every comfort. The location on the mountain ensures that you have a very beautiful view of the bays and can enjoy the tranquility enormously. We have also been able to enjoy tasty typical Greek dishes that they have prepared with love. George and Fofi are also always ready to answer questions or surprise you with great tips. In short, highly recommended for those who love peace, good food and nice trips (thanks to the central location).

  • A real insider tip! We felt very comfortable and will be back!

  • George and Fofi were incredible hosts and were very accommodating. On arrival, George gave us great information about the local area and made us feel very welcome. The room was beautiful with lovely outside areas and views. We really could not recommend this place more and hope to return soon.

  • I am the owner of several vacation rentals in New Orleans, LA and I travel nine months of the year for pleasure (often staying at vacation rentals, hotels, and resorts). Therefore, believe me when I say that this has been one of the best vacation rental experiences I’ve had over the last two years of my semi retired travels. Like my managers in New Orleans, the owners George and his kind and gracious wife went above and beyond to make our stay in this beautiful resort nestled on a mountain with a priceless view wonderful. From his quick response to my first inquiry to all the helpful information he sent until my arrival and check in/out, George was the consummate professional. When we arrived in this spacious, sunny, and gorgeous unit George patiently walked us through all the amenities of the resort (pool, patios, breast buffet and delicious nightly meals) and nearby sites. George was always available for questions about the resort or area. Early during our stay he was kind enough to offer us an upgrade to a larger unit. Overall, an most outstanding stay and we will definitely be coming back when we visit Crete again!!

    Wayne2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • We keep a very good memory of our stay at Georges and Fofi. The welcome, the room, the view, the kitchen, the breakfast, the pool = a little piece of heaven to recharge our batteries. Georges and Fofi are very warm, welcoming and attentive and offer great advice and hospitality not found elsewhere! We feel very good there as soon as we arrive! a small unusual place to discover nestled on top of a hill overlooking small ports and beaches! We will return!
