  • If you want complete and utter silence and privacy with a beautiful view then this place is for you! The entire place is just absolutely adorable and a real gem! The location is great, just a ten minute walk from the local village where there is a rooftop taverna with the BEST food! Its also not too far a drive if you’re wanting to explore some of Heraklion’s history, and if you are willing to drive a little further then you can also easily visit any of the other beautiful places that Crete has to offer. This place is extremely romantic, my boyfriend and I honestly had the best stay, we will definitely be returning and we can not recommend this beautiful home highly enough! It was relaxation bliss! Giannis was also so helpful throughout our stay.

  • Lovely home and location. Pool was a bit chilly but we enjoyed it anyway! Only suggestion is to have more bath towels. There were only 4 towels, and for a home with a pool we thought there needed to be more. Great communication from the hosts and they even picked us up from the airport and fed us dinner!

    Beth2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • The view is amazing. The pool was larger than expected, but the water in it was cold (at least in September). Wonderful secluded courtyard. The house has everything except a microwave, but in general it is not needed, there is a gas stove. The village itself is very cozy. Cafe, minimarket, taverns, bakery, pastry shop, everything is there.

    Olga2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation has and really liked. Everything was clean and the terrace and the pool are just amazing! I will never forget the view of the mountains. The village center is within walking distance and the people are super nice. The tavern nearby is top! We paid about 30 € for two and were totally fed (and sitt;)). Giannis and George are great hosts, respond immediately to requests, give tips and are very patient. Thanks again to you. We would book again

    Eduard2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very clean, the pool is nice but we find it a bit chilly even in mid August ! The view is amazing, a good location to enjoy the serenity and tranquility yet not far from the main city Heraklion. You need a car to get around and overall it's a good experience!

    Kulan2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Giannis’s place is the best Airbnb accommodation we’ve ever had! Giannis is really great, hospitable and kind. The house is much better than what we thought when we saw the pictures and read the description. It’s in the ending of a peaceful village and close to Heraklion, Knossos and many other worthwhile sightseeing places. The amenities are more than you can make use of! Full fridge and many other stuff are already there for you! The outside area is very relaxing with the small pool and all the necessary equipment surrounding it. It should be great for a short winter break too! We’ll sure revisit!!! Thanks for everything, Giannis!

    Foivos2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • No matter what all critics are saying.. trust me there is no critic that can describe how marvelous this place is. The house is isolated from the main village at the end of a hill. The view from the yard is breathtaking!! The only sounds you hear all day long is from crickets. We spent most of the day in the pool swimming and gazing the view. The house is fully equipped from fruits to basic commodities (like milk, oatmeal, rice, pasta etc) and if you need anything extra you will find it at a small market close to the village square 7min walk from the house. Yannis was a great host, always stand by for anything we needed. We were lucky enough during our stay to run into the annual village festival with traditional music, food and drinks. This place is fully recommended if you want to clean your mind and your soul.

    Agios Mironas, Crete Region, Greece

    Gaze out across the vineyards and mountains from the garden and sparkling pool of this gorgeous Cretan villa. Cook al fresco with the traditional stone oven, or on the BBQ. Inside, the exposed stone walls are offset by a lovely gilt-framed mirror.
    The villa is 180 sq.m. and it consists of a ground floor with: -a fully equipped kitchen (fridge, refrigerator, dishwasher, oven) with a breakfast table -a large living room with fire place, dining table for 6-8 people and two big sofas which can accommodate 2 people, -a bathroom (includes a shower) The upper floor contains 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom (includes a bathtub) The whole house has an amazing mountain and pool view. The outdoors is fenced and contains a big parking place, a pool with sun beds, a shower with warm water, as well as BBQ and a traditional stone oven, all these to share with Christina's Guest House which accomodates 4 people. The house is air-conditioned (cooling/heating) by an autonomous system consisting of fan coil units. Warm water is available from the boiler. The furniture and decoration are luxurious with vintage and antique hand made pieces.
    Dafnes is a traditional Cretan village with a main square, Byzantine chapels, traditional coffee shops, and taverns. The friendly locals produce olive oil, wine, and raki. There are many traditional wineries and every July there's a Wine Festival.
  • A hidden gem. Off the beaten track in an unspoiled but accessible Cretan village. Fantastic views of the mountains and vineyards from the pool area. Spacious terraces and communal areas in a recently renovated but traditional Cretan style to high standards. Lots of personalised artistic touches . The host was friendly and responded quickly to all communications in a helpful manner. Speaks good English. Small shops and tavern within easy walking distance and an easy drive to Heraklion and Knossos. The pool was perfect for our teenagers.

    Kate2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very modern and comfortable house with an amazing view on oliviers and decorated with a lot of taste

    Antoine2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for four nights with our two adult children and enjoyed every minute. The villa is beautiful the setting peaceful (just what we all needed). Christina was a wonderful and thoughtful host, we definitely recommend the place and hope we have the chance to visit again.

    Talia2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Christina made our stay in Crete very memorable. Her place is simply fantastic and her hospitality was extremely warm and very generous. The morning swim in front of rolling hills, the wood fired oven and the communication as and when needed. All outstanding. We were very grateful for her local tips. PS. Her restaurant tip for Heraklion was flawless - one of our best meals in Europe this year.

    Lyndon2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Christina's Villa with pool in Dafnes - a wonderful place for a relaxing break! The villa is great, rooms are a good size and styled out in character with the build of the villa. All the small essentials are already there so that you don't need to rush out to buy them to enjoy the property and your holiday. Lots of character pieces of furniture and fittings - this isn't a bare canvas home - there are lots of decorations and little touches that make you feel that you are in an authentic home. Outside the villa the outdoor living spaces are just as well thought out - a choice of places to sit, shade from the building or from the trees. And then there is the pool, a great place to retreat to when it gets hot. You do share the pool, but in our case we didn't share it with any guests in the other property but with the local swifts, during the day, and the local bats during the night. Being in the pool and having the swifts darting in to catch an insect, or a sip of water - really great and unusual. The views from the pool, and the house, across and down the valley also gave us the chance to watch birds of prey - eagles in the distance and hawks much closer, at one point flying past no more than 10 metres away. Then there is Christina and her family. Always ready to help, any little problems with the house sorted out quickly and efficiently (we had a minor problem with the WiFi but Christina's daughter sorted it out for us quickly). And when we asked about recommendations for a restaurant to celebrate our sons birthday, not only did we get three or four recommendations, and she checked for us on table availability, but Christina also dropped by with an ice cream cake for us to celebrate in the villa! Friendly neighbours, who always said hello (and gave us gifts of food) and I think enjoyed watching us manouevring our large car in the somewhat tight alley leading to the house. Its not too tight, but, in an unfamiliar hire vehicle, we always took extra care to make sure we didn't hit anyone's house on our way in or out. Unless you are looking for a real chill out holiday you will need a car, as Dafnes is quite small. But there are a number of food shops, a couple of tavernas and a pizza restaurant. There are also excellent wineries. We had a tasting session at the Douloufakis winery - a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon out of the sun. So thank you Christina for making our holiday extra special - your villa is great and your service better.

  • Perfect place, perfect house, perfect host

    Elie2018-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Christina’s home is a delightful haven of peace and quiet, tucked away in a very quiet, traditional village in the wine growing area, just a 20 minute drive from Heraklion. The views over the surrounding vines and olive groves are stunning, and very relaxing. The house itself is immaculate, beautifully presented, and the air conditioning throughout was a real pleasure. The children enjoyed the WiFi, and large internet TV, with Netflix. The pool is beautiful, and is kept spotlessly clean. You will need a car to explore the surrounding area.

    Richard2018-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you, Christina for welcoming us in your beautiful house and for being such a considerate host! We enjoyed our stay very much and everything was perfect: your house is well-furnished, finely decorated, comfortable, offers stunning views over the vine/olive groves-covered hills, and comes with a great pool. We enjoyed meeting many of Dafnes's native villagers, who have shown so much kindness and generosity towards our family. We hope to be back in Crete soon.

  • Entire place in a village 30 min from Heraklion. Good value for money. The host is extremely helpful, speaks English well and was very helpful. The use of washing machine has a fee to use. The space was clean and new. Free parking on premesis.

    Tiago2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is clean, spacious, very well equipped and with a magnificent view! Moreover it is extremely well placed if you want to visit all the region of Heraklion. Ioanna welcomed us with open arms despite the late hour of our arrival. His advice throughout our stay proved to be excellent, whether for restaurants, beaches or activities to do in the area. In short, Ioanna is the ideal host and the accommodation she and her husband offers is just as much.

    Hugo2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in this house near Heraklion while being in a relaxing environment. The reception was perfect. I recommend.

  • This is the best air bnb experience I've ever had. If you're looking to get away from the norm, experience a bit of farm life and meet two amazing souls this is the place to be. The animal presence was so nice. The room was perfect, cozy and homely. The sunsets and sunrises were amazing. The local town 10 minute walk away is full of wonderful people who will stop, smile and share their fruits with you! Anita and adam are truly amazing hosts and made us feel like family. We had an emergency and they took such good care of us to help us rearrange our plans and quickly get to and from the port. I will definitely be returning here one day and am looking forward to it. We were sad to leave. Thank you Adam and Anita for being such beautiful people and sharing your home with us.

    Emil2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice home. Anita and Adam are caring and responsive. The accommodation is very clean. A beautiful view of the mountain and closer to nature.

  • This is a little gem in the hills about 30 min drive from Iraklion and Knossos. A traditional village with steep and narrow cobbled streets. The house is at the top of the village next to the church. The house itself was beautiful, clean and well equipped and everything worked well. It has everything you could need. however the most memorable and charming part of our stay was Soula's friendliness and desire to share with us a real sense of Cretan hospitality. Even including us in a village celebration. It was a very positive and memorable stay for us.

    Selma2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice traditional home in a lovely little village in central Crete. Clean, very well equipped with a nice private interior terrace. Thanks to Soula and her mom for the great hospitality. Highly recommended for a familiy holiday in the region.

    Mathieu2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Soula’s place so much, it was our favorite place so far on our trip through the Greek islands. It truly felt like a home away from home. There is a patio in the back (with a fragrant fig tree) and front where you can sit and have your coffee or wine. There is also laundry and a full kitchen, which allowed us to go to the market and cook dinner in. The house is well insulated from the heat and very quiet - it was so easy to relax! Also, Soula’s mother was so kind to us, coming by to check on us and give us treats, even though we didn’t know any Greek. I highly recommend learning some phrases if you’re going to stay here for any length of time. It will make your experience in the village very rewarding. We aren’t city people, so we preferred our stay in Kerassa much more than the time we spent in Heraklion. We liked the countryside, quiet farm roads, rolling hills lined with olive trees and grape vines leading up to Psiloritis, where you can hear the sheep being herded home in the evening. For a nice “hike”, I recommend walking up to the ruins at Prinia, first established by the Minoans. Use Google maps. It takes you gently uphill through idyllic farm roads for about 1.5-2 hours until you get to the archeological site. There is some walking on paved roads, but you will hear the cars coming and can stand to the side. The site is in the process of being excavated, and there’s not much information on site, but it’s very neat just to walk around and discover it for yourself. There is also a small church with an excellent view of the valley (all the way to Heraklion). I recommend Soula’s place if you want to experience a little of traditional village life and get away from the tourist crowds and the busy city, without being far from any of the big attractions. We loved it!

    Kat2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a lived-in house, presumably inhabited by the mother of Soula, at least it appears in the furnishings made of objects and affection choices. Grandma is lovely in her frequent offerings of carinerias, from sage twigs to bread, to sweets to the best ouzo from Crete. There are beautiful outdoor spaces, where it is pleasant to eat meals that can be well prepared in a perfectly organized kitchen. Ideal holiday home for the winter as it has a large fireplace. Absolutely to be recommended as long as you have a rather 'narrow' car.

    Chiaralba2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect host, highly recommended

    Stratos2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for an authentic holiday this is the place to be. the place is quiet and relaxing comfort and benefits of the house is perfect ... very well located to visit Heraklion and its region ... we recommend everyone to have a good time .Soula and his mother are welcoming and most friendly ...

    Patrick2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Soula, although to our regret, it was too short. Her mother welcomed us with a lot of warmth and hospitality. The house is warm and well equipped. Perched at the top of the village, it is very quiet and has 2 terraces. A good place to immerse yourself in Cretan culture.

    Christelle2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house is really nice! It is located right near the village church and is very quiet and calm. You have a separate entrance on the ground floor and a small personal terrace with a pleasant view. At the same time, the first floor is occupied by Soula's mother, very friendly and gentle woman! Unfortunately, she does not speak English, but we managed to communicate via a translator a little bit. Both Soula and her mother are fantastically kind and welcoming persons! They do everything for your comfortable stay. When we came, they prepared for us some local dishes and then each day we had some small tasty presents and fruits! We really appreciate that! All rooms are lovely and romantically decorated and there is all what you need for a several days stay! Besides, the shower is full of hot water and the Wi-Fi is perfect. If you come by car, there are two ways to approach the house from the main village street. The former is short and goes up straight to the house, but it is steep enough (we used it to leave as it is suitable to go down). The latter is longer, goes around the village, but easier (we used it to come). However, it still has one narrow street at the end, but it is still OK to pass. Once you get to the house, there is plenty space to park and turn around. The village itself is nice as well. It is small and it takes little time to get around it, but the walk is pleasant. If you like to be out of crowdie places, we definitely recommend the place!

  • Excellent hostess !!! Beautiful and warm place, I highly recommend it !!!

    Olia2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful & peaceful. The garden will give you rest, and the stay is worth every penny. Make the most of it by spending a little time with these lovely heartwarming hosts, and travel just 20 minutes by car (or if you are like me.. 2 1/2 hours on foot) to Heraklion Center & port. What else could I ask for? More time here! A proud people of unmatched hospitality. Watching the locals interact gives so much credibility to the term, "humanity." I can say this for all the locations I have traveled to in Greece. Bring your health & money, and leave expectation elsewhere. Enjoy the adventure and in so doing, receive new life. Ρούλα is a passionate teacher who taught me how to prepare potatoes in one of many Greek manners, and Παναγιώτης runs the ropes of the tourist industry, so priceless recommendations are abundant. We had great conversation in the garden and I was given all sorts of homemade items such as marmalade, honey, chicken & pasta, grapes, pomegranates off the tree, and an assortment of homemade alcoholic beverages (5 kinds!) The force is strong with these two wonderful human beings! I'll be back

    Acovo (Ako)2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • It was exactly what we needed. Quiet, tranquil and relaxing! By car all is very close. The house, besides being ideal for the price, is incredibly sweet with all the amenities of a normal household. Ms. Roulette and her family very hospitable people. Everything we needed was there to provide it and help us. Thank you!

    Aikaterini2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • I love the place, they are very good hosts and too much Harmony in the space, is very quiet place and we listen the birds singing :)

  • Roula and her family were very warm and welcoming. Full of little attention and listening. We feel very good at home. The setting and calm reigns in this small Cretan village. The laundry feels very good and it is very nice to snuggle. Thank you

    Laura2019-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent hospitality, quiet and comfortable apartment, impressive garden, the roulette is a terrific host. I suggest it unreservedly!

  • My husband and I and another couple recently spent four days at the Stone House. Maria was there to greet us when we arrived, and had also arranged for a welcoming platter of Greek foods and Raki. The Stone House is in a small village in a spectacular setting overlooking olive orchards and wine vineyards. The house itself is truly amazing! As we were led from one fabulous room to another, we were truly in awe. The ancient house has been beautifully updated with modern amenities - refrigerator, stove, washing machine, ample cabinets, etc. The many rooms offer panoramic vistas of the beautiful countryside. If we could give six stars, we would!

  • My stay at Maria’s was very enjoyable. Maria is kindhearted, her villa has amazing views and the patio is filled with geraniums. I’m grateful to have been able to stay in Maria’s villa

  • My flight from London to Heraklion was delayed, causing me to get to the airport after my rental car agency was supposed to close. With my American phone, I was struggling to get in touch with the agency. After I messaged her from London, she quickly called them and got them to stay open later for me. Additionally, she escorted me from the airport to the house once I landed. She was very friendly and super helpful. Stone house was also outstanding. The little village was very cute, the views of the hills spectacular, and the house itself was gorgeous and spacious.

    Spencer2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time! Hospitality, hospitality, comfort were at the rendezvous. We will return with pleasure ...

    Carmen2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to get lost in the Cretan mountains and enjoy a village life with friendly people, Maria's Stone House is for you! Isolated in lush greenery, this beautiful home is equipped as if we were at home. We enjoy large living spaces, both inside and out with a courtyard and a covered kitchen that allow you to eat while enjoying the view of the surrounding olive groves. It's a favorite that I highly recommend. Thank you Maria!

  • There is really nothing we can add to all the previous recommendations to this AirBnB. Every positive word written to describe this place and the hosts is certainly well deserved. Visit this place to see the authentic Crete and enjoy a spectacular nature. It is a bit difficult to find the first time and sometimes your navigator wants you to follow some very narrow or steep roads, but once you get there and learn the “right route” you will have no trouble driving there, and you will enjoy the remoteness and tranquility, yet stay near the large city of Heraklion. We stayed in late March and early April and had a fair share of rainy and windy days, but had a great time anyway: imagine how wonderful a summer vacation here must be!

    Karina2019-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Seriously gorgeous, with a breath-taking view from every window and balcony! This is the prettiest and warmest holiday home we've ever stayed in, absolutely perfect for a lovers getaway or a vacation with friends. Romantic, homey, colourful and fascinating place bursting with personal touches and creativity. The remote location makes it difficult to shop for groceries, so do plan ahead, but the place is so very worth it – we stayed home for several days just to enjoy it!

    The village is built on the top of two hills on an altitude of 340 m. It exists since the Minoan and Roman era and many findings are exhibited in the archaeological museum of Heraklion. The property is within a few meters walking distance from the cathedral which is of great historical and religious significance. Underneath the cathedral, you can visit the impressive hermitage of saint Myronas where you will experience holy-water to spout from the rock.

    Heraklion, Greece

    Villa “Spitaki” (means small house in Greek) was built in 1900 based in old traditional architectology. It has four fully restored bedrooms in traditional Cretan style. The two-level house situated in a quiet location in village Ano Kalessa, a picturesque little village on a green hill just 4km away from Ammoudara beaches and very close to Heraklion city. Be ready to enjoy the Cretan Hospitality!
    The house is made out of stone and the 80cm thick walls act as a natural air-condition by keeping the house cool in summer. Additionally, there is an original stone built fire-place which provides warm moments in the winter. On ground floor there is also a dining area with a large wooden monastery table, a kitchen with all the facilities, the fireplace and a WC/shower also. A staircase leads to the upper floor where a master bedroom is located with en-suite WC/shower. This bedroom also has access to the veranda. But the point that makes “Spitaki” precious and unique are the three “ontas” bedrooms. “Ontas” is an old fashioned architecture place that used to be a bedroom and is in some way separated from the rest place. This traditional house was builded and used from the grandfather of the family as a stable before being restored into a fully functional house and so lots of its usability details have remained the same. The veranda has a beautiful view around the hills that give someone the opportunity to appreciate the fresh Cretan air. Finally, equipment for outdoors barbeque is provided to the guests. In the balcony there is also a traditional sofa with a marble table to enjoy the moments in Crete. You will find everything you need to make your stay pleasant and comfortable!
    In Ano Kalessa village you will find local shops such as bakery, butchery, mini market, coffee house and tavern. Also guests can visit a riding club about a kilometer away from the house which organizes rides in the countryside. Furthermore only 4km away it is possible that guests visit Ammoudara’s sandy beaches. In Ammoudara area there are various bars and restaurants and lots of nice on beach bars to enjoy a drink or cocktail while on beach. Heraklion city center is located about 16km from the house and you can be there within 20 minutes driving.
  • Amazing place, traditional and comfortable, very clean, very nice decoration. But the most awesome fact was the hospitality! Argiro and her whole family are amazing hosts, maybe our best memory from Heraklion. Our next trip there will be scheduled totally considering the available dates of this place!

    Μάχος2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Argiro is a very lovely and kind host! She is very helpful and willing to make us feel comfortable during our stay in her house. "Spitaki" was absolutely perfect in every way: quiet, very spacious, comfortable and what really impressed us, is the stylish decor. We had the opportunity to admire lots of authentic cretan traits of this village . The drive to Heraklion was not more than 15 minutes and we had the chance to so be close to the city, and at the same time to be enjoying very quiet and tranquil times when we needed it. I think that we made the best decision by choosing the "spitaki" because the combination of high quality of living and low price is most of the times hard to find; but we seemed to be lucky! Thank you Argiro! :) ;)

    Eua2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely traditional and cozy home in a picturesque village very close to Heraklion city! Amazing hospitality from the host!

    Katerina2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • The house is extremely cute and cozy. It is very convenient for a family with children or teenagers: in addition to the master bedroom with a queen size double bed there are 2 single bed and 1 double bed separate sleeping mezzanines. Some corners under the mezzanines are very low though, so mind your head... The interior is comfortable, nicely decorated and perfectly clean. Outside is a terrace with a view down the hill. A lovely place to relax in the swinging chair. Villa Spitaki is a nice way to experience life in a small cretan village. The village cafe just round the corner offers marvellous food for dinner, there is a grocery store in 100 meters and a nice sandy beach just 10 minutes down the hill. Perfect!

    Hanna2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Argiro's place was everything we wanted and more. This was a true authentic experience in a greek village. We were close to the airport but still tucked away on a mountain that felt very remote. The views were beautiful and the airbb was beautiful. We recommend this to everyone and will remember this place fondly. The host was very communicative and responsive. Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Nicole2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in a small village outside the tourist circuits. Excellent welcome (I recommend the amazing dinner in the bar of the square) and tastefully furnished house, with mezzanines where the single beds are placed, but eye to the head because the ceiling is very low and one double on the top floor, which is reached through a steep spiral staircase, with a service bathroom, where there is a very cozy terrace from which you can enjoy the view.

    Marco2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Argiro for hosting us in such a charming, traditional and unique stay. This house was one of our favourites, and sitting on the verandah with a cold glass of white wine and some fresh grapes looking out at the stunning view was one of our favourites. Just note, it is located in a small village about 15-20 minutes out of town, but that’s exactly what we were looking for. Hot tip, head to the next village over (Kato Kalesia I think) and find the cafe with an amazing view for an authentic Greek coffee. The bakery down the street from the cafe was amazing too.

    Jed2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful night at this lovely house with a veranda that has an amazing view of the mountains and the olive trees that surround Heraklion. It even has its own pizza oven! We (parents + 3 daughters) enjoyed our dinner at the local taverna on the village square. When we left the next day, the neighbour gave us tons of fantastic sweet grapes. Too bad we were only there for one night! Do watch your head, some ceilings are low.

  • A nice apartment with two balconies with a great view. Perfect for a couple and a small child. Air-condition worked very well, and the swimming pool was big and clean. The space around the swimming pool is lovely for relaxation. There is a very good restaurant in the village with a fantastic view. We stayed for two nights before flying back from Heraklion airport - only 30 minutes drive.

    Das Natursteinhaus positioniert sich mit seinem atmosphärischen Flair im friedlichen Dorf Siva-Venerato auf 280 Meter über dem Meeresspiegel und nur 24 km südlich des internationalen Flughafens/der pulsierenden Stadt Heraklion, eingebettet in eine sanfte, von Weinbergen, Olivenhainen und Obstplantagen geprägten Hügellandschaft, welche dem interessierten Abenteurer aber auch versteckte Quellen, Schluchten und nicht zuletzt eine bestechendes Spektrum an Flora und Fauna offenbaren kann.
    COTTAGE in the heart of Crete Villa – traditional land house in a super price. You will be astonished by visiting and living in it. The "COTTAGE in the heart of Crete" is ideal for nature lovers and people who love the stillness. It is a traditional stone built house, situated in an ideal location, 280 meters above sea level, in the peaceful village Siva Venerato, 24 km south of Heraklion airport. The next sandy beach, Amoudara, is 19 km away. Its central location near the principal north-south highway give easy access to the islands sights and rugged beaches on the southern coast as well as the more modern resort beaches on the northern coast. The beautiful COTTAGE is built in maisonette style, and consists of two comfortable bedrooms and a gallery, a living area with sofa bed and fireplace, a well equipped kitchen with dining area and satellite TV, Wlan and Wi-fi.

The area is known for its good Cretan wine and you will find some family businesses that produce and sell their own wine and raki.
  • This is a wonderful, traditional Cretan family home. The cottage is beautiful both inside and out. If you wish to experience staying in a real Cretan cottage that boasts the history of three generations of family and where your water is drawn from an antique well, where you can look out every morning on Cretan mountain ranges and walk amongst terraced fruit and olive trees within your grounds, and listen to the call of the Tzitzikas and know that you have woken up in Paradise then this is for you. Susanna and Manolis are incredible hosts and nothing is too much. They are attentive to all your needs helping to recommend places to visit, local restaurants and sharing their enthusiasm for everything Cretan. They were even kind enough to share their passion and friendship in hosting us with a delightful evening spent in Heraklion tasting local delights and sharing Manolis' evocative retelling of his growing up in Siva and Heraklion. We have touched Heaven and we do not want to come down!

    Flore2018-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • From the minute we enquired about Suma's place she was professional and helpful every step of the way. From helping us with arranging one of the best deals we have ever had on a hire car to maps with places of interest so that we could plan our own tour of Crete. From Suma's place we were able to travel the length of the island. We made day trips to Vai and Intanos beaches in the east and Balos in the west. Every day we were able to see and experience something new. One of the best beaches for us was the closest just North of Heraklion called Paleokastos at only 30 minutes away. More locals here than tourists The house is located in a quiet street opposite a beautiful little church. There are a number of small villages very close by all of which are well worth visiting. On Suma's recommendation we visited a festival in Venerato which was a super experience. The house is well equipped and the bunk beds for our boys 10 and 8 were ideal. We ate outside most days under the shade of the massive vine from which hung huge bunches of sweet grapes. Up the stairs at the back was an orchard with a large range of fruit trees. We arrived late due to our plane being delayed and getting lost 'thanks SatNav!'. Suma waited for us and provided us with all the information we needed. On waking we were treated a beautiful sunrise over the mountains from the front of the house. Whenever we had a question responses were made quickly. One of our favourite places in the house was the reading corner next to a window (lovely breeze) on the upper landing. We visited in August and clothes dried very quickly in the sun. The wind can be strong so be sure to put the shutters on the hooks provided. The wind can also cause quite strong waves on some of the beaches and undertows. This was only an issue on 2 of the 10 days we spent on the island. We enjoyed the waves and were able to find sheltered beaches. Suma and the accommodation were fabulous. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will stay again if we are ever back in Crete.

    Brendan2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • We have to admit that this was one of the warmest welcomes we have ever received. Susana and Manolis waited for us patiently and when we arrived they showed us around and explained so carefully to us how everything in the house was arranged so that we’d have no difficulties. They gave us loads of useful information about things to see, where we could visit and go on day trips, and we followed many of their suggestions. It was wonderful to sit with them and chat about life in Crete and it really gave us insights that we hadn’t been aware of and which ultimately made our holiday richer and more rewarding. Indeed, from their warmth and interest, one could immediately feel that being hosts was not a business for them but rather a labour of love. The house is rustic and cosy, is fully equipped with all mod-cons, with a tranquil garden and orchard attached where we could be lazy after a long day sightseeing. The position of the house was perfect, right in the centre of Crete, just off the main road and only a short drive from Heraklion. I can give the very highest recommendation for the house as a holiday location, and for Susana and Manolis as wonderful people and hosts. I hope that we will be able to come back and stay with them again in the future.

    Daniel2017-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • We were made very welcome by Susanna and Manolis. Susanna took us to the cottage and also showed us around the area; where we could buy bread and provisions; took us to a local restaurant; showed us where the olives they grow are processed in the village. Manolis had left a map showing places of interest which we found extremely useful and which we took with us each day when we went exploring. We were invited to refreshments at their flat in the centre of Heraklion where we were given home-made apple pie, coffee and then a selection of home-made liquers. There are not many hosts that are prepared to do that! The cottage was perfect and had everything that we could need. We were given a bottle of olive oil and were invited to pick oranges and grapefruits from their orchard. All in all, we would highly recommend staying here.

    Helen2015-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • I think Susanne and Manolis are the perfect hosts. Nothing, and I mean nothing, was too much trouble. Sorting out the car hire, then meeting us at the airport at 23:00 and escorting us to the house are just two examples of their generosity and professionalism. The house was exactly as described and was the perfect retreat for our holiday. It's location makes it perfect for exploring Crete, either by car or foot (we did both.) There are no facilities in the village but, as part of our introduction, Suzanne and Manolis showed us where the filling stations, super markets, bakeries, cafes and tavernas were in our area, which ones they recommended and the easy routes between them. There is a winery across the street from the house. The owners are very friendly and their wine is fantastic. Everyone we met was extremely friendly and helpful. Return visits were met like the homecoming of an old friend.

    Richard2015-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Susanna and Manolis gave us a great welcome to Siva explaining in detail the attractions on offer and taking us for a quick drive around the area to orientate ourselves to the local services. The cottage was an excellent base for us after having been on the road for three months. It is one of the better appointed airbnbs we have stayed in and allowed us to choose to relax at "home" as an option to driving to many of the nearby sites of which there are many. The many nearby villages had all the services needed and it is only a short drive into Heraklion. We had a great eight day stay in the cottage.

  • Agios Thomas is a lovely place. You can visit the roman tombs 200m from villa Panona. Georgia from the tavern (50m) is a very nice and funny Woman. Very lovely People in the whole neigbourhood. Villa Panona is also a very lovely Place. We were 6 People. Every bedroom has its own Bathroom. 2 bathrooms have showers without curtain. if you dont know it, you have to ged used to it or use the one shower with curtain. in every room are a lot of lovely details to discover. it is very cute decorated. Villa panona has two "gardens". The frontyard is good to sit, drink, smoke. The backyard is good for eat or use the BBQ. You have a nice view from the upper room. The technic in villa panona works fine. No problems with power outlets and no problems with hot water - even if 3 people take a shower at the same time. Villa Panona is in the Middle of Agios Thomas. The streets are very narrow, so no car can drive to villa Panona. This is Positive becouse this is why it is very quiet there. You have to walk 100-200m to the Parking spot.

  • An alternative suggestion and a pleasant experience for people who love nature and tradition, in George's lodging will surely calm down !!

  • Everything was great and as we imagined. Giorgos and his dad are very accommodating and hospitable. Quaint cottage in the middle of quiet olive plantations. Very nice garden with many accessories. Great. Definitely recommendable. :)

    Jessica2018-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house for nature lovers! Totally recommend it!

    Aviv2018-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Giorgos’s place and it was just what we where looking for. Quaint and clean house up in the mountains of Heraklio, just 10 minutes from the city center. If you love peace and quite and want to experience the beauty of rural Crete, away from the noise and bustle of the city center this is the place for you. Beautiful yard with plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the outdoors. and enjoy the night stars. We will be back soon!

    Yorgo2018-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Giorgos is extremely helpful and nice. The flat was perfectly cleaned and perfect for our needs. Would recommend warmly

    Giulia2018-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Giorgos is very friendly, kind, attentive, punctual, ... he was kind enough to wait for us at the bottom of the path that leads to his charming and secluded house among the olive groves. The view is beautiful! Absolute tranquility! The house, less than half an hour from the port of Heraklion, is as described. We had made the choice not to start the generator and had two very romantic evenings in the candlelight ... Giorgos and his dad are very hospitable and generous: Cretan bakery specialties, fruit ... and fresh eggs of the day from their backyard! On our next visit to Heraklion, we will return with pleasure to relax in this rustic, beautiful and beautiful! We recommend.

    Το σπίτι είναι χτισμένο στην είσοδο του χωριού λίγα μέτρα πριν την κεντρική πλατεία. Εσωτερικά είναι διακοσμημένο σε παραδοσιακό ύφος και λίγες μοντέρνες λεπτομέρειες. Περιμετρικά έχει άπλετο με χώρο με δέντρα , που εμείς χρησιμοποιούμε κυρίως για να κάνουμε γιορτές. Υπάρχει ιδιωτική είσοδος και ο κάθε επισκέπτης μπορεί να διατηρεί την ιδιωτικότητα του. Αυτό όμως που κλέβει την παράσταση και σε αυτό οφείλει το όνομα του, είναι το Φεγγάρι και η απέραντη θέα του τις καλοκαιρινές νύχτες.
    Το σπίτι είναι ιδανικό για χαλάρωση και ξεκούραση όλο τον χρόνο. Διαθέτει τζάκι ξύλου για τον χειμώνα αλλά και ψησταριά για BBQ τις μέρες που θέλεις να απολαύσεις τον ήλιο.
    Το σημείο που βρίσκεται το σπίτι είναι ιδανικό για όποιον επιθυμήσει να ακολουθήσει τον δρόμο του κρασιού καθώς υπάρχουν σε εξαιρετικά μικρή απόσταση οινοποιεία που μπορεί να επισκεφτεί. Ωστόσο είναι στο δρόμο όσων θέλουν να εξερευνήσουν τις παραλίες και τα μέρη της Νότιας Κρήτης. Και φυσικά είναι πολύ κοντά στο Μοναστήρι της Παλιανής και άλλα σημεία άπειρου φυσικού κάλους όπως το Φαράγγι του Αγίου Φανουρίου.

  • Casa de Luna is a little jewel in the countryside of central Crete. Small and very comfortable, perfectly clean and simply but well furnished. So fresh we had no need to use the A/C and it was August. Just open windows and let the pure air fill your lungs. A couple of minutes from the town of Venerato where you have excellent market and a very good taberna. If you wish you can buy all you need at the market, including very good lamb, and cook at your kitchen. Or you can go to Keralia's cafe to have breakfast and to Dimitri's for lunch. We stayed 2 weeks and it was paradise.

  • Great place with wonderful owners in a well communicated spot

    Carles2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Kallias place is sparkling clean and in a good location for exploring the area south of Heraklion. The garden is gated and it's a great place for people enjoying having privacy. There is a good kitchen, a good bed, and air conditioning that keeps the house cool even on very hot days. We were welcomed by Kallia and her parents with smiles and homebaked muffins. Kallia was truly committed to making our stay a good one and making sure everything worked. Due to a cut cable somewhere in the area, we had no net connection at one point. Kallia solved this in no time, by buying and bringing a 4G Wi-Fi router. We highly recommend Kallia's place!

The neigbourhood is silent, sorrounded by olive trees and nature. Just 10 minutes from Heraklion center by car, that you can park close to this appartment. It was the best place we probably stayed in airbnb ever! So if you're concerning this place for your stay and reading this comment - you should book it as soon as it's possible!

  • Excellent stay here, I just highly recommend this wonderful place, Giannis and his wife are really friendly and paid attention to all details making you feel really well hosted, from the arrival at the ferry until the really delicious meal offered at their home when leaving :) thanks!!

    Emmanuel2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • “Breathtaking” doesn’t even begin to capture the view, which is utterly magical. Γιάννης and his family have created a very special oasis on a hillside just about a 20 minute drive south of Heraklion, complete with a serene garden full of olive and orange and lemon trees, and lots of room to sit and listen to the cicadas while you watch the sun set over the mountains. If you need a tranquil respite, I can’t imagine a better place to spend some time. Γιάννης and his family are extremely warm and generous hosts; I can’t speak highly enough of them or of the wonderful space they’ve created to share with weary travelers who find themselves on the otherworldly island of Crete.

    Benedict2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place. Atmospheric Greek house in the mountains, with a gorgeous view, a lemon garden and a patio. There is everything that you might need: from a washing machine to baking paper and a first-aid kit with a baby patch. A huge number of towels. Perfectly clean. A lot of interesting antique things that are so cool to consider. Heraklion is 15 minutes by car. The nearest beach is 20 minutes. It is very convenient if you want to see Crete and do not like crowds of tourists. 5 minutes from the house - a local shop with farm goods: lamb, cheeses, homemade eggs. But the most surprising is the owners of the house - Janis and Cleo. We met at the airport at 4:00, helped with renting a car, which was much cheaper than on online services, conducted right to the house, all showed, told, prepared honey, cookies, crackers, butter, coffee, farm for us olive oil, water. Very cool homemade wine and crayfish

    Елена2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Well done to the owners who built an elegant space very close to Heraklion. Giannis and Cleo are creative people and people, meaning people who are essential. I highly recommend this house to those who want to go for a walk in nature, read a little in a quiet garden, cool and rest. Do not hesitate to drink their wine! Cut a little basil! Try their honey!

    Voutes, Greece

    Stone-wood house of historical value (renovated in 2015) that stands from the Ottoman rule period. Unique mountain location with unlimited view, within Agios Miron. The stonehouse is located 20 min from the island's capital, Heraklion within the most renowned wine producing region of Crete. Its ideal location suits every traveller that wishes to explore both the north and the south part of the island. After all, PhiloXenia is the ancient Greek concept of hospitality, generosity & courtesy.
    Counting more than a century, this house dates back to the Ottoman rule in Crete. After its renovation, its ready to welcome any guest that wish to explore and seek the true Cretan lifestyle. Bright,cool,airy, spacious and eco-friendly stonehouse of 90 sq.m. on the centre of the village of Agios Myronas (a suburb of the island's capital Heraklion). It is suitable for couples, families and groups. The stonehouse provides: - Large Living room with 2 big sofas and a fireplace which is suitable for winter. - A wooden staircase leading to the bedroom in the first floor. -The bedroom in the first floor consists of 2 single comfortable beds and also 1 air conditioner. The window in the bedroom has unlimited view of the mountains. There is also a door that leads you to an open space to enjoy more of that view. Charmed by the view you must not forget that you stand in the 2nd floor. - Kitchen (fully equiped with oven, fridge, table and also fireplace which was used in the past for cooking). - One modern bathroom - A big yard of approximately 40 m2 where you can enjoy your coffee, a romantic dinner or spend a calm afternoon enjoying the view (It also helps you join the second bedroom). The courtyard is often used as a playground for children by our guests. We recommend that they will be under surveillance. - The second bedroom is outside the main house next to the yard (It includes one big double bed, suitable for couples). - One storage room which is renovated, stands from 1870. Barbecue, grill, tables, chairs, lumber for the fireplace, extra beds are stored there. It is noticeable that this old room is equiped with plenty of tools and objects that date back to the Ottoman rule.
  • The house is amazing, we had a great time !!! The hosts were lovely, warm people, absolutely helpful in whatever we requested. The places were very nice and comfortable, generally making our vacation unique. Would definitely go again !!!

    Ηλιάνα2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed there 5 days out of our 2-week Crete trip, and this place is a definite must :) Agios Myronas is the most beautiful village we've seen in the whole island. We recommend spending a few hours exploring its ancient narrow streets, steep winding alleys and historical stone houses. The location is convenient for visiting the central part of Crete, quite near Heraklion, but situated on a hill among olive fields, with stunning mountain views. The Philoxenia house is old, beautiful, and classy (old stylish furniture) - but also very well equipped (e.g. drinks, sweets etc) and convenient to live in (actually we enjoyed the sheer being there). Also, there is the nicest local restaurant Ethimiko - with lovely local food for good prices :) Our host was helpful and comunicative and in general, we absolutely recommend this place!

    Jacek2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Charming place with magnificent views. 20 minutes from Heraklion and + - 45 minutes from Phaistos. Village very quiet and not touristy. Hosts very attentive and available.

  • The house is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities you may need. We enjoyed our breakfasts in the backyard with the view to the mountains. The location is so peacefull and quiet.... perfect for some days of relax. A perfect choice to enjoy your holidays.

  • We were greeted by Pantelis and his mother, who had prepared a welcome basket and invited us to join them at a Cretan party. They were keen to introduce us to Cretan hospitality and food and we had a great evening. The house is ideally located to visit the north coast, but also the south coast thanks to the new road. The village is very quiet. A beautiful experience that we recommend.

    Aline2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • We were greeted with snacks and drinks and incredible hospitality at our arrival. The village is nice and traditional, a quiet ambience. The apartment is kept tidy and is equipped with everything you might need during your stay. You get value for the low price, so I 100% recommend it and would choose it again!

    Virág2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage in the hinterland of Heraklion about 20 minutes away by car. It is located in a nice village with grocery stores, an oven and a bar where you can find everything a step away from home without having to take the car. The house is perfectly restored and in my opinion it is perfect for two or three people in single beds. There is the possibility of using a queen-size bed in the separate room that can be reached via the external courtyard. But the small room is very small and there is no closet, so you have to somehow organize yourself with those who remain at home even for the bathroom. Furthermore, the small room does not have air conditioning and is an under-roof where it is very hot in summer. However the owner is very kind and allows you to arrange the beds in the house to your liking so in some way he organizes us (we stayed in 5). It was truly a beautiful experience. Super recommended.

  • We were very positively surprised how the hosts greeted us with help, food and wine. The place itself is pretty much out of the normal routes for tourists so it is probably a place for people with own car but thanks to this it is quiet, originally traditional and the terrace has amazing view on the mountains. In 30-40 minutes of driving there are many wonderful places to visit. In our case, while leaving, we had a strong feeling that we should book this place for longer.

Being at the center of Crete, it is ideal as a location to explore the island, even though many of our guests prefer to stay locally for the fantastic surrounding villages or Pendamodi or for the local very friendly taverna which prepares excellent and cheap dishes.
    Located in the traditional village of Pendamodi in the Heraklion area, the two-storey Christina Villa 3 of the Christina Villas complex offers the unique combination of peace along with modern comforts and easy access to the City life.

Christina II is a 2 bedroom villa of approx. 150 sq. Meters in two levels with 2 bathrooms and the most traditional of the Christina Villas, accommodating 4 people with comfort. The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, oven, cooking utensils, toaster, dish washer, hob, 4 ring stove and a dining table: if wished, a high chair for babies can be provided. The kitchen shelves are made of wood and have memories of the old Cretan style. The kitchen is connected to the living room as to the hall and divided by a stone arch, typical feature of the cretan architecture, featuring a/c and fireplace for the colder days or as decoration for a chill out night at the bamboo couches. The Hall next to the living room is having a door leading to the shaded veranda facing the pool: It features satellite television, DVD player, CD player and radio and finally books in English as also a Playstation 2 if requested.

Towels, linen and maid service twice a week are provided and are included in the price and if required, there can be private chef cooking greek and cretan cuisine and showing also how to cook. Children are welcome!
  • This villa is in the most amazing village on Crete. Something you read about but rarely get to experience. The villa was very comfortable. We loved having our own pool and the facilities were great. The local people were so welcoming and we loved eating at the tavern every night, something we could do cheaper than shopping and cooking at home ourselves.

    Jenny2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • An unequaled welcome

    Guinet2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • The villa was lovely and had lots of useful features like the washing machine, microwave and a dishwasher. The accommodation was as described and the maid service was a real treat! Thank you Adonis!

    Kathy2017-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house was very nice and spacious. We were 2 couples of friends staying for 3 days and it was ideal to enjoy the surrounding area of Heraklion while being able to avoid staying in the city itself. Thanks to Adonis and Lisa for their wonderful welcome.

    Maximilien2017-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We were met at the airport (despite it being late and the plane being delayed) and had a car to follow up to the villa. The villa is in a lovely little village up in the hills, there is a small shop for the essentials and a taverna. The next village along (5km) is a bit bigger with restaurants and bars overlooking the mountains. We were able to easily go on day trips to Matala (lovely beach town on south coast), Rethimnon and Agios Nikolai and still get back to enjoy the pool and terrace in the afternoon/evening. The villa itself is as described, it is clean and comfortable with all of the facilities available and spacious accommodation for a family of 4. In summary: great location, host and villa

    John2017-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a pleasant stay in our villa, everything was in line with the announcement. A welcome kit was distributed to us when we arrived late at night, which was well appreciated (bread, jam, sugar, coffee, pasta, tomato sauce, butter, juice ...). Good facilities of the villa (dishwasher ...). The ground floor is quite dark but not inconvenient since you spend time on the terrace. The pool has almost no opposite to the 2 adjoining villas but on the other hand it is clearly visible from the small private driveway that overlooks the garden (but very little passage). Very quiet, non touristic village, there was quite a lot of wind, I do not know if it is usual or not. 30 mn drive from Heraklion, but nice taverns accessible by foot or 5 mn by car. Possibility to rent a car also, we were very happy, 2 times cheaper than the market. We were greeted at the airport, picked up the car and drove to the villa: perfect welcome, everything went smoothly despite an hour's delay from our flight.

    Aetovigla is a group of six detached fully furnished cottages built from curved stone and wood according to traditional architecture and with respect to the environment.
  • The studios of Iona are all beautifully done and well equipped. Iona herself looks after her guests very well. So we always had delicious food. The view from the topmost cottage is simply breathtaking and the sunrise just beautiful. We felt very comfortable and enjoyed the silence and nature very much. We can recommend the place :) Greetings

    Miriam2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and great host!

    Florian2018-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ioanna gave us turn-by-turn directions in advance to find the best way to the cottages. The communication was very easy also was checking-in and -out. The cottages contained everything we need for a perfect holiday. Ioannas husband made up some firewood and prepared the oven, so that we had no problems to light the fire.on the first evening Ioanna prepared a very delicious meal for us. We enjoyed the wonderful view to the sea, the valley and of course the eagles. It is perfect located to experience the surounding nature, the village Krousonas is nearby and you can get everything you need there. Ioanna is a wonderful host and we felt like beeing at home!

    Ariane2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in the mountains, very quiet and not so far from Heraklion (30minutes). From there you can enjoy a nice scenery around. Eleni is also a great cook! Thanks a lot.

    Anne-Sophie2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good time, one of the best locations of Crete with a perfect host, great breakfast, great homecooked dinner and we felt welcome straightaway. Was a perfect experience!

    Bas2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very relaxing night at the guesthouse— highly recommend it.

    Richard2017-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my fiancée stayed here for 5 nights. And it was absolutely amazing. The view can't be described, between 800-1000m above sea level you can see much of the island! The pool area is gorgeous, and Eleni cooks great home made food. You can enjoy hikes from here, as we did, the fauna and flora is fantastic, the eagles hover high above the premises is majestic. The real place actually looks way better than the pictures (Eleni you need to update the pictures!). Should you like to go to the beach then Agia Pelagia or other nearby beaches will do the trick! WE WILL BE BACK!

    Jinkyoung2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Aetovigla Guesthouse is a very special place. High up in the mountains there are ca. 6 little stone houses, which have an amazing overview from their terrasse to the entire area and Heraklion. Even from the pool you have the same view! A very peaceful place for those who are looking for some privacy (we had only a couple as neighbours at the same time, so pool was almost all for us!) To Heraklion its a 50min ride, but very closed to the mountains!

    Registration Number 1039K10003063701 This is the perfect spot to sit back, relax and enjoy spectacular views of mountains, valleys, the city and sea. Quiet and peaceful yet close to everything. The house is spacious and comfortable and the surroundings are stunningly beautiful.
    This is an ideal rental for independent travellers and family groups who want the freedom of a comfortable and well-appointed house to base themselves on Crete and experience daily life in a small Cretan village. Our stone house is just six years old and set in an olive grove in the beautiful mountain village of Loutraki, just 30 minutes from the city and the sea. Incredible views, warm people, great central place to base yourself on this amazing island. Washing machine, fully furnished, TV DVDs, very comfortable. The accommodation consists of three bedrooms, sunroom, kitchen, lounge room and two bathrooms. The ground floor includes a fully equipped kitchen, lounge/dining area, two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds, and a large bathroom. The lounge can also double as a bed. Upstairs there is another bedroom with its own balcony and bathroom. There is also a large terrace on the first floor with views that stretch across green hills and gorges to the city and the sea beyond. The sun room which is on the terrace has a single bed and a sofa bed. Loutraki is a small, quiet, agricultural village. Our garden in the front is still growing but the olive grove behind is big and shady. There is no tourism here, just a simple way of life tied to the seasons and harvests. However the village is convenient to the main thoroughfares that link the island from east to west and to the south. It is also close to many important archeological sites and impressive churches.All around the village the views are so beautiful they can break your heart. Loutraki has a really good tavern called 'Loutraki' opposite the war memorial. It is usually open at night and definitely worth a visit. It is run by Christina and Nikos and the food is fantastic and the company even better. Next door there is a mini market where you can buy fresh local eggs if the chickens are in the mood for laying, milk, bread etc. There are also a couple of very traditional coffee shops, one of which is open in the evening. You can reach long stretches of coastal beaches in about 15 minutes by car. There is a petrol station about 1 kilometre from the village. The main port town of Iraklion is 19 kilometres away and can be reach in about 30 minutes easy driving by car. The airport is about 40 minutes depending on traffic. The large village of Gazi is about 15 minutes by car and it has a variety of big and small supermarkets, butchers and bakeries for more extensive shopping. There is a large village 3 kilometres away from Loutraki called Krousonas which has bakeries and a variety of shops including a pharmacy. Krousonas also boasts a fantastic pastry shop run by the local women's collective, which also runs the bakery opposite. Traveling in the opposite direction (towards Iraklion) are some picturesque villages starting with Korfes. If you follow the curving road down from Korfes you will pass another village before arriving at Kavro Xori which is a very beautiful village quite close to Iraklion, but another world away. There are plenty of great places to walk in the countryside around the village including some incredible gorges. I have included some photos of the Gonies Gorge. The start of it is about a 30 minute walk from the village. This gorge is not open to hikers at present but there are many, many others of varying difficulty and ease all over Crete. As the photos show, the landscape is incredible.
    No words can adequately describe the beauty of this place or the warmth of the people in Loutraki. It has to be experienced. If you take the time to meet people you will remember them forever.
  • wow!! we loved this house..in a very tiny village...you have all what you need in the house... great host ! a beautiful Area...we wil come back one day love David & Max en Clio

  • If you are looking for excellence in every way and for a local Crete experience Rose's place is highly recommended. As a previous reviewer commented this is how an AirBNB was intended to be operated before booking agents high-jacked the system. We stayed for four weeks. Initially there were two of us and our son and partner joined us for one week. Everything was perfect thanks to Rose and Stella. We were welcomed with generous gifts of fruit, local olive oil, wine and raki. The house had everything we needed, even a dishwasher. The mountain water was beautiful. Solar hot water was plentiful. The power supply was reliable. Internet access was intermittent and as a back up we bought local sim cards and data from Cosmote in Heraklion. The house was spotless and the garden magnificent. We hired a small car and made trips to nearby villages for shopping and to the coast for swimming. For longer trips we went by coach from Heraklion. The local village Taverna provided us a place to go for dinner and was just a short walk away. We bought milk and eggs from the local shop. We were fortunate in befriending a number of local people who all made us so welcome it was very sad to leave. If you are a person who wants to be off the beaten track while still having access to great facilities then we strongly recommend staying at Rose's home. If you are fortunate enough to stay there please read our notes in the visitor's book to help you with local knowledge.

    Peter2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Rose's house is completely in line with the description. The house is beautiful, a superb view of the olive groves from the terrace. Do not miss the magic sunrise. From Loutraki you have access to the eastern part of the island. Thanks to Stella for her welcome, her smile and her joie de vivre. Rose, olive oil: divine See you soon

    Bénédicte2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Every BNB host should stay here to see how a BNB should be set up. It is what AirBNB used to be about. They have created something special. The village is small but easy to get to and only 20 or so min from Iraklio. The road is also a pleasant and easy drive. We loved our stay and couldn’t recommend the place more. Thank you Rose and Stellar you two are truly super hosts.

    Paul2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay . Although the construction site in front of the house will slightly deflate your expectations .

    Serhii2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by Stella - she brought us to the house, showed us around and explained everything. The house was gorgeous and spacious and had everything we needed. The views were fantastic and the neighborhood was quiet. We loved the village and being away from the tourist hotspots. We had some struggles getting internet reception (for the most part it didn't work, but we could get internet connection in the village). If you would like to relax and unwind - it's great; if you are planning on working and need internet access - you would need to make arrangements. There was also construction going on across the street. We could only hear it in the morning, as we usually left in the morning and returned later at night. I would like to thank Rose for being attentive, for checking in on us and for her prompt responses. She made us feel comfortable and well taken care of during our stay at her beautiful house!

    Nina2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was so wonderful to be at rose place...the area was amazing and the hose was clean and properly accessorized. we will come back soon!!! thank you!!

  • Rose's house in the idyllic mountain village of Loutraki is an absolute gem. A beautifully fitted out house with lots of space, great outdoor space to admire the breathtaking views from and lovely, comfortable rooms inside with lots of space to lounge.
