The only thing for your convenience it is better to rent a car.

  • Sofia and her family are very welcoming !! His mom had prepared a delicious cake for us and his dad detailed all we could do around (beaches, restaurants, visits ...). The house is very large and isolated. The view from the terrace is beautiful! We were also able to serve in their garden and taste their homemade olive oil. If you are looking for a place to rest in peace, this is the place. Again thank you for your warm welcome, see you soon !!

    Henry2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and spacious typical country caste with large outdoor spaces. An accommodation with maximum privacy and tranquility in a strategic position to discover the best beaches in the western part of the island. Sofia's father is fantastic, a sunny person who welcomed us in the best of ways and gave us valuable advice on the beaches to visit. Everything you read in the description of the ad you will find it at Sofia's home

    Nicola2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house of Sofia and Ana is immersed in the countryside, in its large garden there are olive trees, the vegetable garden and even the hens and all this embellishes it very much. The house has a particular structure with communicating rooms and obligatory passages that are not always too easy unless you are very familiar with those who share the house. Anyway I liked it very much and we had a great time. There is a nice large table outside where we have always had lunch, experiencing the garden as much as possible. Furthermore there are deckchairs and hammocks for relaxing moments and even the tree house that our kids loved! The location is also ideal for getting around and visiting the western part of the island. The welcome of Kostas and Sofia was wonderful, discreet but always ready to solve small difficulties or requests. Absolutely recommended!

    Barbara2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a magical time in Sofia's house. Everything was perfect. We loved the garden and terrace. Our kids spent a lot of time looking after the cats and chicken. A truly wonderful experience for our family. Communication with the hosts was very easy and friendly. Sofia's father stopped by when we needed him, they responded within a short time. Check-in was great: we arrived very late at night and Sofia's father came to greet us even that late. We loved the mixture of rustic and cleanliness: very clean beds and sheets and towels, and yet it's a very old and charming building that is not over-done. You have to be prepared for country side life - if you're not ok with seeing a bug or cockroach once in a while, it's not the right place. If you love an original experience, authenticity, being outdoors, hearing nothing but crickets chirping and birds singing, this is for you. Thank you, Sofia and the whole family, for a wonderful, wonderful stay.

    Lisa2019-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding stay, outstanding hospitality in a beautiful house. Sofia and her father were great with us !!!

    Omar2019-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Quite place to stay your holiday, far from roads and noisy beaches, but you must travel by car to enjoy the beauty of this location! Close to famous Balos and Elafonisi beaches, shops in nearest village, restaurants - everywhere!

    Taras2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Truly authentic rustic experience, in countryside, with a beautiful garden, olive trees, a fireplace. The hosts are exceptionally kind.

  • We had a wonderful holiday in Crete. The house is super modern and Victoria is just the best hostess we have ever met. Communicating with Victoria was quick and straightforward. We got on arrival small pastries and on departure small presents. She cleaned up the house for us - from bath to grill - in between even cleaned up and we felt very well. The hot tub is very clean and we used it every day. The accommodation is in a perfect location, in the middle of a small village with a kiosk and a bakery. The beach is not far away and by car you can reach all the beautiful places of the island in 1 hour. Simply great! We can only recommend the accommodation! We are happy to meet the two again!

    Vanessa2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place is AMAZING! Victoria and Matthaios are the best hosts! Our flight arrived late in the middle of the night and Victoria was there to show us around the villa. From when we enquired about booking, they were fantastic at providing information about the villa and the surrounding areas, helped us book a hire care, gave us great restaurant recommendations and generally ensured we had a great holiday! The only bad thing was that we had to leave, it was perfect! We will be returning!

    Dominic2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Matthios and Victoria has been wonderful hosts. They gave us a warm welcome with local products and sweets. The house is very new, perfectly clean, big, and comfortable and has its own character! We enjoy a lot the jacuzzi. The communication was perfect, they understand our needs, and gave us many advices to explore area and have special dinners! The position was perfect for us, to explore by car the west coast and its beautiful beaches, falassarna, elafonissi, balos...kissamos is very close and you will find many grocery store, super market, bar etc We spent fantastic relaxing days, feeling at home.

    Federica2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the Villa for 8 days and it was absolutely amazing. The villa is exactly like the pictures, the kitchen is fully equipped to cook almost like at home. The house was sparkling clean and Victoria even came once and cleaned it the house again. We loved the stay, it had everything we could have asked for. Victoria ( The wive of Matthaios) welcomed us very warm hearted with some baked goods, fresh fruits and even some water in the fridge. She also had a ton of restaurant recommendations for the area. She gave us her telephone number when we arrived and was always available incase we had any question or problems. The jacuzzi was one of our highlights as it was in the sun until the evening and you could easily take a sundown drink there. I can only speak good about this place as it was even better than we imagined and i can absolutely recommend it.

    Athina2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is how vacations are supposed to be! Just amazing. The house is really beautiful and quiet. You miss really nothing. The kitchen is really good equiped, there was waiting different fresh fruits for us at least for one week and also water in the fridge was already prepared for us. You can choose between many good games they leave for you or a small selections of nice books. The bathroom leave nothing to ask for. The shower is just amazing and everything is clean. We sleeped really good. The small garden for take the sun including a barbecue place and for sure not to forget a whirlpool are sometimes hard to leave to go to the beach. Victoria, the wife of Matthaios was waiting already in front of the parking place for us to show us the house when we arrived. The whole family was amazingly heartwarming and give us such a good feeling all the time. On top of that we was lucky enough to spend a night with them together. They invited us to a traditional Kretan dinner which we really enjoyed. We really only can recommend this villa 100 % to everybody who is thinking about to go there.

The Villa features a private pool, outdoor oven/BBQ, and large parking area. The Villa is within walking distance (1 km) of a mini mart grocers, restaurant and coffee shop.
    The Villa is attached to our main house, but is completely private and independent. There is 73 sq meters living space in the villa, and comes with a private balcony with private pool access. There is free wifi. The villa is in a quiet area surrounded by olive trees.
    Kissamos is the largest town in the area. It is approx 3 km.
  • The accommodation has a quiet and romantic location. Great view over the olive trees to the sea. The outdoor area, with a great pool, is very lovingly and attractively designed. The house offers, in addition to absolute cleanliness, Everything for a successful holiday (enough dishes, games, cleaning products ...) Great we found the mineral water in the fridge as a welcome! The beds are of very good quality. Sally is helpful and very personable, leaving the guest the space one desires. Noteworthy is the proximity to the supermarket, which is also within walking distance. In the village, which we really liked is a small, fine tavern. You have everything nearby, cities to stroll, beaches of all kinds, hiking, historic sites. Sally has a lot! recommended restaurant tips. We thank you very much for a wonderful stay We will come back

  • We had an amazing stay at Sally’s place. Her hospitality was perfect, she was warm and friendly whilst also giving us the space to enjoy the property and the amazing pool to ourself. The property is perfectly located for access to Balos Beach and Elafonisi beach which are both accessible by car. We also enjoyed strolling down the hill for 10mins into the small village nearby for dinner

    Larissa2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Sally’s apartment is absolutely superb and a brilliant place to explore western Crete from. We came here on our honeymoon and it did not disappoint, it was a great place to relax and unwind after a busy wedding! The apartment was spotless and very well equipped with amenities and bedding (plus a good bookshelf stocked with tourist guide books), great space and lots of nice outdoor areas for eating and relaxing too. The view over the back is stunning, you can see the hills and the sea in the distance with olive groves stretched out ahead. Sally herself was a really kind and friendly host who really went the extra mile, even when we needed some medical help, and who knows the area well - she even took us on a little drive around to point out what the locale had to offer! The pool was great (though note it’s unheated), and wonderful to have private use of. All the bedrooms have air con too, and we felt so welcome and comfortable during our stay. One thing to note is that you do ideally need a car to make the most of this part of Crete, and Sally’s place is a little off the beaten track, but if you hire a car you’ll have no problems and Sally gives good directions, plus there’s easy parking at the apartment. Overall, a terrific experience and a great place to stay - would highly recommend!

    Euan2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely fantastic, if you want to live away from the noise, but just a short drive from everything. The house have everything you need , and the outside area is huge. The great pool and a very nice barbeque , a roof terrasse to sit and look at the fantastic view. The air is fresh, due to all the olive trees, and the cirickets are singing. Do not leave any food out in the kitchen , as the little ants will come to dinner , make sure to rinse off the dishes ( they love butterknives ) We had 4 nights here , and we would just love to come back . Sally is the perfect host , and will take good care of you , and share tips on where to visit and places to eat. There are a Supermarked , 2 minimarked and a nice Taverna really close to the house, so you can get whatever you need.

    Vigdis2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Attention, rare pearl !!! Spacious accommodation in the heart of the hills covered with olive trees overlooking the sea, exceptional equipment, impeccable cleanliness, a beautiful private pool surrounded by a large terrace with sun loungers ... all for a very very sweet price. But also ... an owner (Sally) welcoming and caring, who makes you enjoy his tips, who respects your privacy but never refuses to share a drink and make the conversation at dusk, in short a really charming and positive person! Etienne, Dominique and Amandine (Brussels)

    Etienne2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Sally has been perfect! Beautiful and big house, swimming pool, fields of olive trees as far as the eye can see. Quick access to the sea Sally is lovely and gave us local addresses for eating and swimming. To recommend with eyes closed

    Anne-Sophie2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Let’s start simply saying PERFECT! Sally is extremely kind, she answers messages quickly and suggested a lot of places (restaurants, beaches,ecc).I must say she really cares about her guest! We loved spending time with her and chatting in front of a glass of wine. The house is amazing! it’s really clean, it has a breathtaking view and the pool is fantastic, besides the position of the house is strategical to visit the beast beaches of Crete! I strongly recommend it!

    Marco2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a dream! The view is outstanding, the villa is spacious and has everything you need for a perfect stay. Including a nice and spacious bathroom, kitchen, many places to sit and relax and ofcourse the pool.The pool is clean and refreshing. Sally is friendly and so nice to chat with.

  • We are a family, 2 adults and 2 children (15 and 11). We’ve just got back from a week at villa d’oro and it was just perfect for what we wanted. It was like having our own private spa getaway. The exposed brickwork gave us the feeling that we were in an ancient villa but with all the mod cons and we were really impressed with the high quality finish of the sympathetic restoration. The style of the villa gave us so much privacy, there is no one overlooking and it was so peaceful. The master suite is on the lower level and accessed through the courtyard, so if travelling with small children you may need to consider the layout. Victoria was lovely and met us on arrival and departure at villa d’oro and even brought us little gifts throughout our stay which made it all the more special. Victoria also gave us recommendations of where to go and always responded quickly by whattasapp. We were visiting at the end of the season (end of October) and many tavernas/restaurants in the surrounding areas were closed already. Kissamos otherwise known as Castelli, was only 5 mins by car and had restaurants that were still open and also was where we found a couple of supermarkets for picking up food. We definitely needed a car to explore the area and visit beaches. Beaches: Fallasarna Beach was about half an hour drive away and had plenty of sun loungers for hire plus a beach bar, showers and toilets. The sea here was so clean and shallow for quite a way out and so it’s a good spot to hang out for a whole day. We would have gone to Ballos beach but the boat trip is a whole day out and we only wanted to go for the afternoon, but we saw an advert for a smaller boat you can get from Fallasarna beach which gets there in 20 mins....so maybe next time? Elafonissi Beach was about an hour drive. We went there by the scenic route but it was pretty intense driving (not for the faint hearted). The beach itself was stunning and is known for its pink sand. There were sunbeds for hire and amenities. The water is crystal clear and shallow for ages so great if you have children. We also visited Chania, the Venetian Harbour, one afternoon. It was beautiful with lots of shops and tavernas with small windy back streets covered in bougainvilleas and other vines...definitely worth exploring. We would highly recommend this villa if you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting.

    Zoe2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful! They owners took a pile of rumble and turned it into a stunning home. An old world feel with natural stone and wood, the quality and thought put into this home is remarkable. We had difficulty finding the place as Google Maps was not accurate in pinpointing the exact location but Victoria was available and met us the down the road to escort us up to the home. We were greeted with pastries, fruit, water and all the extras to make our stay a memorable one. The pool and jacuzzi was warm and not hot but our 3 young kids still enjoyed the amenities. Kissamos is a town nearby where you'll find great restaurants and tavernas. Overall, a great location if you're planning on visiting the nearby beaches.

    Judy And Joe2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is absolutely beautiful! Every detail has been thought out and extra touches added. The spa room was our favourite! The pool is beautiful and just the right temperature. We loved using the pizza oven and bbq. Every room has Netflix. Loved the bath robes in the spa! Victoria went out of her way to be an Amazing host, gave us great beach recommendations and bought us fresh grapes from her vineyard, home made raki and olive oil. She was always on hand with any questions we had. Cannot recommend this place enough it really is beautiful!!! Also a lovely sea view from the balcony. Thank you 💖

    Alice2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • We were somewhat apprehensive when we saw how lovely the villa looked online, and for the price we were offered thought It might be too good to be true. We couldn’t have been more wrong! It was absolutely stunning & the hospitality of both Matthaios and the lovely Victoria was second to none! They provided a welcome pack for us on arrival, and continued to leave us little presents throughout our stay! The villa was impeccably clean, and there were regular cleaning visits made. Amenities - There was practically everything we could’ve needed or asked for and the hosts were always very helpful in giving us advice and recommendations when asked. The pool and whirlpool were both lovely and refreshing, and the showers were wonderful rainfall style making for a very pleasant start to the day. Location - The villa is located in a small village/hamlet, with a Taverna and shop accessible by foot. We would advise getting a car and there was parking available. Despite being close to other houses, there was nowhere in the villa where you would have been able to be seen by anyone else, so you were definitely nice and separate and secluded. We were the third or fourth guests to stay in Villa D’Oro and were so glad that we did! We have stayed in loads of Airbnb’s and hotels in our time and this really exceeded our expectations! Couldn’t recommend enough!

    Sam2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • One word .... WOW. What a beautiful and amazing place. The owners Matthaios and Victoria are superb hosts, welcoming us with some baked goods and fresh fruits. The villa is exactly like the pictures, and the kitchen is well stocked with tea, coffee, etc and has everything you would need if you wanted to cook. There is a fantastic outdoor area complete with a heated pool and also a indoor heated pool .... great for relaxing with a glass of wine in the evening. Here you will also find a built in barbecue and a separate pizza oven. The location is not far from the beach and the village has everything you need, from a small supermarket and a tavern that serves delicious local food.

  • Antonis is a welcoming and caring host and the appartment facing the sea he gave us was just stunning. I recommend this place highly.

    Tobias2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • The location of this extraordinary place is very special. It is so close to the sea that you here the waves at night. In addition it has its own private pool and beach. The town of Kissamos has not too much to offer but you can go on day trips to beautiful Balos or Elafonisi beach. We Thank Antonis for his overwhelming hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay. If possiible he would get a 6-star rating.

    Leon2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • The stay was really nice. The house is right on the sea and from the balcony you had a great view. There is a very nice pool and the sea for swimming. Unfortunately it was quite windy in September when we were there. The food was delicious too and the owners very friendly. Unfortunately, I fell ill on vacation and got every day tea with fresh herbs and specially for me cooked soup. The rooms were basic but equipped with everything you need. The price-performance ratio is definitely top. Since the house is a bit out of the way it is good to have a car to drive to other beaches or to the city

    Magdalena2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my Mom stayed at Antonis’ place for few days. The location is strategic if you want to visit Crete’s best beaches. (Balos, falasarna, elafonisi). The room had a balcony with an amazing view on the beach and you can relax there looking at the sunset. So relaxing. If you want you can also have dinner there right next to the pool. I definitely recommend it for the location and the hospitality.

    Monica2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • We would like to thank Antonis for being such a wonderful host. We felt very comfortable at the hotel, and we are still missing hearing the sound of the waves :)

  • Antonis' place is amazing, with a pool, a private beach and a restaurant-bar! Antonis and his people are lovely and happy to help! We got lucky enough to get upgraded without any additionnal cost. Thank you for that, Antonis! ^^ With your car you can easily reach a lot of fantastic beaches as well. We'll definitely come back!

    Aurélie2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Antonis for being a great host. Beautiful pool bar beach and good food all in one place. Driving distance to Balos Beach too

    Jamie2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • An address that I can only recommend. Antonis is a lovely host. And its small hotel has many advantages and first its location that allows you to discover much of western Crete while having a private beach and a pool. I would add the presence of a good little restaurant. For the rest the room was simple but comfortable and we actually sea view even if the window does not directly on the wide.

  • Catarina and Giorgos are amazing hosts and we truly enjoyed staying with them. They were extremely kind, gracious and informative hosts. They treated us like family and welcomed us into their home with open arms. Crete is a wonderful island and the area surrounding the home is quite picturesque in a quiet community of Kissamos. Beaches and amenities are close by including public transportation, although we did rent a car to see other areas of the island. Chania is close by and is the biggest city on the western part of Crete. The hardest part was saying goodbye them, as we miss them already.

    Jim2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Katerina and Jorgio welcomed us in the best conditions while they were supposed not to rent their rooms. Warm and generous, they made us spend a (short) stay really nice. Thank you !

    Fannie2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • The title is true! Cretans are very hospitable in general, but Katerina and Jiorgos are even more welcoming. They are very attentive and made us feel like family when we arrived, including a Cretan meal with their loved ones, better than the best tavernas. The apartment in their house is well equipped and fresh. The place is well located for visiting the beautiful beaches and valleys of western Crete. We will return!

    Fabrice2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Katerina’s and Jiorgios’ house. They were very nice to us and offered us a warm stay in their home. Thanks to them we learned a lot more about Crete’s history and way of life. Next time we visit Crete again we hope we can stay with them. :)

    Mario2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place and couple. If you really want to live an authentic Cretan adventure you must stay at Katrina's house. Katerina and her husband are extremely nice, they will make you feel like at home. Highly recommended!

    María José2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Simply unforgettable, there is no better hospitality. Katerina and Giorgos are so cute and the breakfast it's unbelievable with so many local foods and fruits. The bedrooms are very comfortable and fresh with a wonderfull balcony. You have to meet Giorgos and Katerina to knows what means friendship. Thank you for these fantastic days together, we already miss you!!!!

    Our cosy stone built home in the village is a perfect place for relaxing. We have renovated our grandparents home that was built in 1800 by our ancestors. It is in a perfect location close to the market of the village, but at its limits.
    It is actually built in two stories. As you enter there is the kitchen area with a big barbeque and gas stove as well with a traditional wood-oven which you are welcomed to use (we will be happy to help you with it). On the same floor there is the cosy sitting and dining room area with handmade wooden furniture. Outside and attached to the building there is the newly build bathroom with shower. There is also a spacious terrace where you can enjoy your coffee, tea or your meals. A wooden staircase leads to the bedroom upstairs. There is a double bed provided, a wardrobe and a private balcony with a distant view to the sea. There is a ceiling fan to use in the bedroom. The power is provided only by solar panels so it should be used with care. During spring and autumn we would also love to welcome you. A wood stove in the sitting area keeps the house cosy and warm and you can also enjoy various winter activities.
    Spitaki (little home) is located in the outskirts of the village, reached through a narrow street, there are some village houses from one side and the olive groves spreading around. The center of the village is 200 meters away where you can find a super market, local taverns and a pharmacy. The town of Kasteli is just 4 minutes drive away. The beach is just 3-4 minutes drive.
  • What an enjoyable stay at Electra and Thodoris ... The spitaki is so well equipped that we always found everything we needed to cook / take full advantage of the terraces / to take care of our 8 month old baby. We appreciated all the little touches of Electra. The spitaki is well located for exploring the western region of Crete!

    Margaux2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • What can we say, but that Spitaki (Little House) was so authentic and charming that we loved it instantly! Hosts Thodoris and Electra are the most wonderful, lovely people that you will meet. They were excited to share their Spitaki with us, as well as, their village of Kaloudiana. The Spitaki was welcoming with many fresh flowers and personal touches. We were blessed with some wonderful homemade and local treats. We really couldn't ask for more, except to stay longer. We had lovely dinners at the local tavernas, enjoyed the countryside, and enjoyed our stay. Thank you very much from Tom and Hollie!!!

    Tom2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • A little gem of a place, presented with an abundance love and care and full of beautiful, charming touches - from plants and flowers to vintage objects that reflect the cottage's history as a family home in the locality. It was also the best place to experience the starry skies, which we gazed up at every night from the lovely rooftop terrace! Thodoris and Electra were the most generous hosts we could hope for, so helpful and welcoming, and overwhelming us with a basketful of gifts to take home, plus Electra's delicious home-made cheese pies (our breakfast for 3 days, together with fresh orange juice made with the fruit provided!). A truly warm and unforgettable experience!

    Bob2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • The small "Spitaki" is located in a completely nondescript village called Kaloudiana near Kissamos. At the village square Thodoros picked us up. Through old narrow streets it went up the hill. Even from the outside, the house was nice to look at. What then revealed inside, however, a spontaneous WOW elicited us! We were mouthing in amazement no longer. With infinite attention to detail, Thodoros and Electra have created a little paradise. We not only felt well, but felt the warmest welcome. Thodoros and Electra convey Greek hospitality from the heart. Your Spitaki receives from us 7 stars and not only because of the many Greek delicacies and the delicious wine, which we were allowed to enjoy from the barrel. If we move again towards Chania, we like to come back to the "Spitaki". We can highly recommend a booking there.

    Gabi2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Spitaki is a really special place. So much love has gone into it and you you really feel at home. Electra and Thodoris will make you feel so welcome! It's a beautiful traditional Cretan farmhouse which has been restored with love. We loved our dinner under the stars and drinking wine on the terrace. It was so easy to pick up food from the village, there are tavernas and shops all within 5 minutes walk. Electra recommended the most beautiful beach for us to visit (we're keeping it a secret!) and a great place for lunch. We will definitely return next time we're in Crete! :)

    Archie2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for a wonderful experience in an authentic part of Crete. We really enjoyed your hospitality and incredible accommodation. We even had a wonderful time getting souvenirs and things at Going To The Sea. Such a fabulous community and hosts. Wish we had spent more time at the Spitaki during our time in Crete. We look forward to coming back sometime soon.

    Mason2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • This house is so beautifully decorated and the hospitality from Thodoris and Electra was outstanding! As many others note we were welcomed by them with local foods and gifts including their own olive oil, many fruits and sweets! The house is really comfortable with two outdoor areas to relax in the peaceful surroundings. The location is great to explore the west and the Tavernas just down the end of the road are great also! We loved all the thoughtful touches that made this place a luxury to stay in. Such a good choice and we’re so happy we made it!

    Lillie2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived at Thodoris's and Electra's family home late at night (10pm) and they had no problem with this. They met us at the large tree in Kaloudiana. Our GPS brought us to the street on the left before entering the town, so go a little farther and you will not miss the tree lol. From there they showed us the way to their home. You definitely need a little car to get into their driveway (very narrow streets). We chose this place because the hosts were raved around and now we really know why. They`re the nicest people and left touches all over the house (from homemade olive oil, pastries and jam to flower peddles on our bed). This place was a dream come true. My fiance and I got engaged the night before in Santorini and then he proposed a second time on the top balcony outside our bedroom. We definitely felt the history in this home, had fun cooking over an open fire, making fresh orange juice and coffee the old Cretan way, and really enjoyed watching the neighbour milk his goats and tend to the rest of his farm. We had a really hard time leaving this place as we felt an attachment to it! Thank you so much for having us xoxo

    Kate2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • I definetly recommend! We, three adults, spent 14 unforgetable days in Drapanias at Natasa's appartment. Is is spacy and full of light, windows open to the sea and there is a balcony around the whole appartment. Cooking and even washing up the dishes was enjoyable in front of the window whatching blue sea while smooth wind cools heatness of the midday. Absolutely the best is still the roof. You have a large open air living room with absolutely stunning view. Mountains and sea...no matter where you look the beatyness surrounds you. There is beds for bathing in tje sun but also natural shadow under the leaves of winegrapes. During our stay in the beginning of Sebtember grapes matured and were we allowed to eat them freely. Amazing piece of paradise. Natasa's familymembers living downstairs we friendly and their hospitality was overvelming. We got just baked cakes, fresh eggs, melon etc. just as a present. They were many times just left outside the door while we were sleeping. Will miss that time and hope we have an oppotunity to visit Drapanias again. Thank you Natasa, your father Kostas , the lovely baking lady downstairs and the whole family.

    Marjariitta2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is incredible. We stayed four nights here with our two children, 9 and 7. It is enormous, and the view and terrace above is absolutely stunning. We had our most memorable dinners there, sitting under the vine leaves and ripe red grapes, watching the sun go down over the sea and then set behind the mountains ... the apartment is in the middle of a massive olive forest with the most beautiful green hues leading right up to the deep blue sea on one side and the mountains on the other. A lovely breeze runs through the apartment making it very comfortable both during the day and at night. Natasa’s family who we met were very friendly and helpful, making us feel completely at home. The private parking space is very useful. Never walked down to the sea, which would have been about 20 minutes on foot, so I don’t know how easy that would have been, but we comfortably drove down in 3 or 4 minutes. There are some good local Tavernas and mini markets in Drapanias and a few pretty restaurants on the seafront. The location is well placed for day visits to all the most famous beaches in the area and this apartment was definitely the highlight of our stay in Crete.

The house is spotless, with the most demanding amenities, at its best with incredible views. Antonia is perhaps the most polite person we have ever met in a smile and a goldsmith .. This does not exclude her other siblings of course .. Thank you for all..!!!

  • We have spent two weeks in August 2018 in villa Stefania. This was special time, due to beautiful place (old olive grove), nice local village Drapanias, exeptional hostability of Natasa, her father Kostas and their family. Villa is very clean and decorated in traditional Cretan style with hand-made lamps, paintings and other things. It is special place just to live in! We were able to rest in the large terrace upstairs, enjoing delicious grape and beautiful views. Also we were very happy with the area itself, as the Drappanias beach was close to villa (15 min by walk). There is one more advantage - lack of crowds of tourists in Drapanias. This was very important part of our "family type" vacations. Wish we can visit this place again! We highly reccomend villa Stefania for arranging holidays in Greece!

    Liisa2018-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Dear Natasa and Kostas, Hospitality in Yours Villa was wonderful. In every single day we have experienced smile and happiness from Your family.

And terrace which we have in loved with: HUGE, cosy with all needed equipmend and with the most amazing view. Surrended by olive holt, lemon and orange trees, green mountains, grapes above our heads and of course breathtaking sea view from the west side. Truly wonderful and amazing place. Thank You for Your host and we are looking foreward to visiting Villa Stefania again.

  • Had a great time in this beautiful house. Lefteris and his parents couldn’t be nicer, they gave sightseeing tips and offered lifts to the next town. The place has an enclosed garden (with lemon trees and a spectacular view), which is kind of heavenly.

    Simon Christian2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • The place is a very cosy apartment in a pretty small village. It is a bit up the hills, so you can easily explore the area with lots of olive tree plantations, still you are kind of close to the town of Kissamos. Everything was fine and looks just like in the pictures. Lefteris and his parents were exceptionally kind hosts.

    Michael2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place, quiet, amazing view and close to many gorgeous beaches. The room was advertised with an extra single bed, but was not present during our stay. That could've been because we were with only 2 people, but that's what we noticed. Would definitely stay at Lefteris his place again!

  • Excellent one bedroom apartment in the center of Kisamos! From Kisamos it is very convenient to study the western and northwestern parts of the island. Giannis is a very welcoming host! I met at a time agreed in advance, at the same time I sent a detailed description of exactly where the apartments are (but they are also easy to find through Google maps). He answered promptly on any arising questions and gave useful advice on routes, taverns and many other interesting objects. The apartments are very stylish, with a full set of household trifles, as in your apartment. We even cooked a couple of times in the evenings; there are shops within walking distance. The Internet is of excellent quality, on the TV there is a subscription to Netflix, which allows you to watch many films / TV shows in English. Balcony, so it's generally a fairy tale! It is simply unrealistically large - around the entire apartment !! We parked near the house, there were always empty seats. Feel free to recommend Apartments for living and enjoying people, communication and Crete in general! The next time you visit the island, we will happily stay at the Giannis!

  • Super chic apartment in the heart of Kissamos, our hosts have provided us with great tips and we could enjoy the real, authentic life of the city ... great base for hiking through gorges and for trips to the absolute dream beaches of Crete ... great breakfast in the babel and super mini markets right next door

    Tina2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Expect the best, because that is what you get in your host Giannis! I needed medical attention on my way to Kissamos and told him I was at the hospital in Chania. Next thing you know it, Giannis was by my side helping me understand what was being said. The apartment is fantastic and super clean. Hit water galore with a great rain shower. I’d stay again in a heart beat!

    Sue2019-10-03T00:00:00Z

  • Great stay in Kissamos. The apartment is simply amazing! Modern, spacious, clean, equipped, bright, beautifully decorated. We were greeted in person and our host explained the activities and restaurants to do in the area. He made himself available throughout our stay. I recommend without hesitation this accommodation for luxury holidays at low prices!

    Clémence2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Giannis was very kind and helpful to us. He recommended places to visit and where to eat. It shows that he cares for his guests. The apartment has been recently renovated and is located in the city center. We really enjoyed our time and we will certainly return!!

  • As soon as you approach the area where the apartment is located, you realise how many beautiful little shops and bakeries there are around. Meeting Giannis was a real pleasure. He was very welcoming and very helpful. He had lots of recommendations on places to visit, restaurants, taverns and of course amazing beaches. He went absolutely above and beyond our expectations. The apartment was spotless clean, it had everything we could possibly need and really felt like a home away from home.

    Tommaso2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Amazingly modern, beautiful and clean place. Giannis and Maria were wonderful hosts. Maria waited for us to arrive late when our flight was delayed and took the time to give us helpful recommendations for our trip. Giannis was extremely responsive and pleasant in our interactions throughout the trip. Free parking around the apartment is convenient. It's steps away from the lovely main town square and the beach. We recommend eating at The Cellar nearby for a beachside dinner. Convenient drive to Kissamos Port to take the Balos Travel boat tour to Balos lagoon and Gramvousa island. Elfanossi beach is also not too far of a drive from here, if you don't mind taking some winding narrow cliffside roads. We loved our relaxing stay here and would definitely recommend it!

    Kissamos (Kastelli) is a modern seaside town, 36km east of Chania, with a population of 5000 people, whose economy is based mainly on agriculture – with its renowned olive oil and wine- plus tourism, and is still developing. The beauty of Kissamos, is that it is a Greek town that has embraced tourism but not been spoiled by it. Visitors of Kissamos can experience local life and tradition, from the everyday to the special cultural events organized during the summer season. In recent years it has also developed as a region renowned for its alternative, natural and eco tourism and as such is a magnet for walkers, bird watchers and lovers of nature generally. It is a hospitable town, well organized with all the facilities required of a self sufficient town, such as banks, post office, internet cafes, health centre, supermarkets and stores, tavernas, cafes and bars. It also has a very pleasant seaside promenade lined with tavernas, cafes and bars open from the morning till late at night. There are ships running from Kissamos harbor to Kithira, Peloponnese and Pireaus. There are also daily cruises from Kissamos to Gramvousa and Balos lagoon. SIGHTSEEING The archeological museum of Kissamos, situated in the central square Stratigou Tzanakaki, is a recently renovated listed building housing a treasure trove of local archeological finds from the Hellenistic and Roman periods – most notably very impressive mosaics. There is also a delightful street called Skalidi that runs through the center of the old section of the town with traditional arched buildings and small local tradesmen and shops. One and a half kilometers from the center of the town, is the picturesque fishing port with two tavernas and a little further on, the larger commercial port that links Kissamos by a ferry service to Kythera , the Peloponnese and Piraeus. From this port there is also a daily pleasure cruise to the stunning island of Gramvousa and lagoon of Balos. Between the two ports is the surprising little 10th century church (reconstructed in 1947) St. John Damiali built into the rock face and opposite a tunnel leading to Damiali beach – a pebbly cove with crystal clear water that will enchant you. HISTORY Kissamos was also known as Kastelli and got its name from the Venetian fort that used to stand in the town. Predating that time, “Cisamon” is mentioned by Pliny and “Kissamos Town” by Ptolemy. The town flourished during the Roman period and much evidence of this has been uncovered, with Roman baths, villas with mosaic floors, cemeteries, an aqueduct and the remains of the fortress walls. In the museum there are archaic, classical and Hellenistic objects, pots, statues, glass containers and coins etc. Roman Kissamos also had a famous theater which was noted by Onario Belli in the late sixteenth century, and the famous archaeologist B. Theofanidis has established Seli, an area just outside of the town of Kissamos, as a base for King Agamemnon. During the first Byzantine period Kissamos retained its power and the diocese was established but during the second Byzantine period the bishopric was moved to the village of Episkopi to escape the pirate raids on the coast. During the Venetian occupation the diocese of Kissamos was received into the universal church, as mentioned by a Latin bishop in 1307. During the period 1579 to 1582 a fortress with a pentagon shaped church, prison, barracks and well was constructed. Some of the wall is still visible in the town today. During the Turkish occupation Kastelli actively participated in all revolutionary attacks against the Turks and sought with Mother Greece. Also during World War II Kissamos the town, and the whole area, was active in the resistance against the occupying Nazis. Mavros Molos beach Mavros Molos (i.e. black jetty) beach is located just in front of Kissamos town, 36km west of Chania. Mavros Molos is a long gulf, on which remains of the ancient port of Kissamos have been found. It is the main beach of Kissamos town and hosts the most swimmers in the area. It's a great beach with fine sand and relatively shallow waters. Next to the beach there are many cafes, restaurants and hotels. Umbrellas, sunbeds, lifeguard and showers are provided. There are also many tamarisk trees, providing natural shade. West of Mavros Molos main beach, there is a smaller cove, which has pebbles and is rockier. The cove is never crowded and is suitable for snorkeling. Telonio beach The beach of Telonio starts east of the main pedestrian road of Kissamos and extends to the local stadium, about 1km eastern. Actually it is the westernmost part of the vast beach that starts from Kissamos and ends in Nopigia, several kilometers eastern. Telonio is located next to the most cosmopolitan part of Kissamos, at the position of the former Customs' Office and the current pedestrian seaside road with the most taverns and cafes. It is a nice pebbly and sandy beach with shallow water. Despite the short distance from the town, it is totally unorganized and seems abandoned. Telonio used to be the most popular beach of the area, several decades ago, however today it is sadly to see rusty umbrellas and rubbish on the beach It is a good choice for those who do not like crowds, but also want to have many amenities within walking distance. Livadia beach, Kissamos The beach of Livadia starts 1km east of Kissamos, next to the town stadium, and ends at the beach of Korfalonas. It is a small, 2km long, part of the vast beach that runs from Kissamos and ends in the Cape Rodopos. The beach, like all beaches in the neighboring area, is sandy and has some pebbles in places. It is open to the winds and the waters are not deep. It is not very well organized, but there are a few points with umbrellas, small hotels and restaurants. Due to its length, it always seems empty. It is a good choice in windless days and for those who want to find a quiet place to swim, but close to city amenities. Castel Chissamo, Kastelli in Kissamos, which in 1966 was renamed to Kissamos, is a small picturesque town built in the gulf of Kissamos or Myrtilos, between the peninsulas of Gramvousa and Spatha. The name derives from the Venetian fortress that was built there, remains of which still exist. The first fort of Kastelli was built by the Genoese pirate Henry Pescatore on the site of the ancient Kissamos, in the early 13th century, and was one of the 15 forts fortified by the Genoeses after 1204 AD. When the Venetians expelled Pescatore, the fortress fell into their possession. Then, they restored it and it became the defensive military center of the region. The shape of the fort was asymmetrical pentagon and, like all the Venetian fortresses, it included quartering areas, prisons, churches and a well. Since the early revolutions of the locals, the fortress of Kastelli Kissamos became a target of the rebels. When in 1262 the Cretans, with the help of the Byzantine emperor Michael VIII Palaeologus, rebelled against the Venetians, they tried to occupy the castle, but failed. During the revolutions of 1333 and 1341, the Venetians destroyed the settlement (bourg) that had developed around the fort, but later decided to rebuild it. From then on, the settlement was named Kastelli, like all bourgs on the island. In 1538, the fortress was destroyed by Barbarossa and was repaired in 1554. In 1583, the Castel Chissamo had 845 residents and in 1630 it had 35 cannons. In 1595 it was completely destroyed by an earthquake, but was rebuilt in 1635 by Lorenzo Contarini. In 1646 the Turks besieged the fort, which fell after the betrayal of the commander Giovani Medici, who gave up because the fortress had been severely damaged and most of his soldiers died by plague. The Turks repaired the fort immediately and started using it. In 1692, during the first Cretan revolution under the commands of the Venetian admiral Mochenigo Aloisio, the rebels occupied the fortress, but it lasted for a while. Thus, during the Ottoman occupation of Crete, the fortress was the center of many revolutionary activities. In 1821, the fort was used for imprisoning the Bishop of Kissamos Melchizedek Despotakis. From there, the Turkish mob dragged him to a square, for hanging him. When the revolution was generalized, the 1800 Turks of Kissamos found refuge in the fortress, which was besieged by rebels and two ships coming from Hydra island (near Athens). In February 1823, during the preparation for the landing of the new General Head of the Cretan Revolt, Emmanuel Tombazis, the rebels organized the clearing of Kissamos and Selino provinces, forcing the Turks to seek protection in the fort. Thus, the ship Terpsichore arrived at the port of Drapanias, transferring Tombazis and 600 Greek volunteers from the mainland of Greece. The Greeks besieged the fort till May 25, when the Turks surrendered the fort and their weapons. The Greek flag was raised after centuries in Crete, but it lasted for a while… The Turks moved to Chania, where they regrouped and returned to Kissamos. After a fierce battle, they managed to regain Castelli. In 1825, the fort returned into the hands of 900 Greeks, who came from Monemvasia (Peloponnese). They were initially heading towards Gramvousa fort, but the bad weather and the information that there were only 20 guards in Kissamos, led them to the siege the fortress at Castelli. However, after 3-4 days, 2000 Turks arrived in Castelli and reoccupied the fort. During the great revolution of 1866, the fort was again a target of the rebels. The fort was besieged by the Colonel Vyzantios and the Major Froudarakis, but the siege stopped when the latter was killed. In 1897-8, the story was repeated, but the Turks were rescued by the Great Powers, the “protectors” of the Cretan people. Today, the remains of the fort, most of which are remnants of the Turkish buildings, still stand in some places and remind us of its great past. Kissamos Archaeological Museum The archaeological Museum of Kissamos was founded in 2005 and is housed in the Venetian - Turkish monument known as Dikitirio ("Headquarters"). Its exhibits provide a longitudinal picture of the region's history from prehistory to late antiquity, i.e. the early Christian Times. The exhibition is divided into sections based on chronological and local criteria and covers the ground and first floor of the building. Downstairs, the Minoan findings from the excavations at Nopigia are presented (Geometric period, 9th-8th century BC) and focuses on the historical development of the major cities of western Crete: Polyrinia and Falassarna that flourished in the Hellenistic period (4th-1st century BC). It also presents pottery and ceramic findings from smaller local cities and settlements of the region, Hellenistic inscriptions and sculptures from the area of Kissamos, dating mostly to the Roman period (67 BC - 4th century AD). The first floor is dedicated to the town of Kissamos and the findings from local excavations. Here one can admire mosaic floors with interesting pictorial representations from urban villas of the Greco-roman Kissamos, amphorae and coins coming from trade, findings from workshops, everyday objects and findings from tombs of Falassarna and Polirinia, a burial of the second half of the 4th century BC, from the Roman and early Christian cemetery. Parthenos Monastery, Kissamos The monastery of Parthenos is a modern nunnery dedicated to Life Giving Spring. It was founded in 1905 and was renovated in 1962. Here operated the Urban School of Girls and the first Deaf school in Crete. Elafonissi beach Elafonisi is located 76km west of Chania and 5km south of Chrysoskalitisa Monastery, in the southwesternmost point of Crete. Elafonisi is an oblong, which often "breaks" in two parts by water giving the impression of being a separate island. Elafonisi is a Natura 2000 protected area. The island is full of dunes with sand lilies and jupiners (like-cedars trees). The endangered turtles careta careta and several rare animals nest on the island and it is strictly forbidden to remove any plants, animals and sand from the area. Exotic beaches with white sand and turquoise waters, reminding of the Caribbean, are formed on either sides of the peninsula. The sand is pinkish in many places, taking its color from thousands of broken shells. Near the “breaking” point of the peninsula, the water does not exceed 1m, creating a small lagoon, ideal for children. You can easily cross the lagoon in order to reach the “island”, having your staff with you, because the water is very shallow there. The eastern side of the beach, in front of the lagoon, is well organized and has the most people. There are umbrellas, showers, lifeguards, snack bars and changing rooms. Also, near the beach there is a huge area for parking and, even further, a few rooms to let. Opposedly, the beaches on either sides of the island are less crowded and are the most beautiful, with amazing azure colors. If you want to stay completely secluded or nude, you can walk along the peninsula until you find a quiet cove that you like! There are always many coves available for naturists. You can come by car (1.5 hours) or by bus from Chania. The road to Elafonisi is narrow and full of turns, but the beauty of the landscape is stunning. Moreover there are many options for accommodation and meals available at Chrisoskalitissa village, 5km north. Balos lagoon The famous lagoon of Balos is located approximately 56km northwest of Chania and 17km northwest of Kissamos, formed between the Cape Gramvousa and the small Cape Tigani and below the range of Platiskinos. Balos is surely the mostly photographed beach in Crete, a very favorite subject of all tourist guides for Greece. It is no coincidence that Prince Charles and Princess Diana visited Balos with their private yacht many years ago. Balos is famous for its turquoise waters, the wild natural beauty and the beautiful exotic scenery. During the summer, Balos is visited by thousands of people, who arrive mostly by the ferries running from Kissamos port. If you do not like crowds, you’d better avoid to visit the beach in July and August. Also, a perfect idea is to arrive at Balos in the morning, before the boats arrive from Kissamos. These few hours of remoteness in such a heavenly place will remain etched in your memory forever. The lagoon of Balos has white sand and exotic white, vivid blue and turquoise waters. The sea is very shallow and warm, ideal for young children. In many places the sand has a lovely pinkish color, because of millions of crushed shells. Beyond the rocks at the boundaries of the lagoon, the water is deeper and colder, ideal for a snorkeling. The lagoon and the wider area, with rare species of flora and fauna, are protected under the Natura 2000 program. Eleonora falcons, shags and cormorants nest in the caves of the area. Moreover, the area is a shelter for the protected monk seal and the sea turtle caretta caretta. Despite the protection, a primitive café and umbrellas have appeared on the beach in recent years. You can buy water from there and from the bars of the ferries. Some drawbacks of the lagoon is that the seabed is muddy and the shallow waters facilitate the growth of microorganisms, which sometimes cause an unpleasant smell. Lastly, the locals say that the sea currents transfer rubbish or tar to Balos. Falassarna Beach The exotic beach of Falassarna is located 59km west of Chania and 17km west of Kissamos. It’s located in the western part of Cape Gramvoussa. At the northern end of the beach are the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Falassarna. Falassarna bay is one of the most famous beaches in Greece, which has been awarded as the best beach of Crete and one of the 10 best beaches in Europe in the past. Falassarna spans a huge area and consists actually of five consecutive beaches, with the two most central being the most favorite. The sand in Falassarna is white, making the water color tropical. Indeed, if you're lucky and be here on a day that is not blowing from the west, rare in west Crete, you will be enchanted by the beach and its turquoise waters. The main beach of Falassarna is called Pacheia Ammos (i..e Coarse Sand). It is an exotic beach with a length of 1km and a width of 150m. This beach hosts the most visitors of the area, but because of its length it never seems crowded. The beach offers umbrellas and a few snack bars and cafes where you can get food and water. There are also services for water sports and a beach volley court. There is another long beach north of the main beach having a length of 800m, identical to the main beach, which is broken into several smaller beaches. This bay is divided in half by a sand dune and a few rocks. The beach is more quiet than Pacheia Ammos and offers no facilities. Nearby, there is the chapel of Agia Paraskevi and a spring with fresh water. Further north, near the archaeological site, there is a small cove looking south. It is pebbly and the seabed is rocky. It is a good choice when the winds blow from west or you seek isolation. South of Pacheia Ammos, at Livadi, there is another long beach that has sandy shore and rocky seabed. It is a very good choice for fans of the snorkelling. Livadi is surrounded by a very important wetland with ponds, which host many birds in winter. Even southern, near the small harbor of Limeniskos settlement there is a small pebbly beach, which is a good choice if you do not want to stay remote. The area around Falassarna is magnificent and is a Natura protected region. If you have time and looking for something romantic, you can wait for the sunset, which is considered the best in Crete. How could this not be the best, when being in such an amazing landscape and there is no obstacle between the beach the horizon? When it gets dark, you might be lucky to visit one of the several beach partys organized in Falassarna during summer. One drawback about Falasarna is that it looks west and is usually wavy. However, this is desired by windsurfers. There are also reports that the surrounding greenhouses pollute the sea with fertilizers and trash, which, if being true, is a real shame. If you do not have a mean to get in Falassarna, you can catch the bus from Chania or Kissamos.
    The village of Kaloudiana offers mini markets, tavern, kiosk, kafenia, pharmacy and local bus stop.

  • The stay at EleEva was beyond what we expected. Maria invited us to have dinner at a very good restaurant next to the beach of Kissamos and we then had a very peaceful night at the Airbnb. If we come back to Crete we will definitely come back to Maria's place!

    Juliet2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Complete apartment with on-site parking, independent and secure entrance. The room is cleaned daily. Maria was helpful before and during our stay, gave us tips about the place and kept in touch to know if everything was in order. It is a bit far, but easily accessible for those who are in the car and a good option for those who want to know beaches like Balos and Elafonissi.

Supermarket is directly next to the apartment. Parking in front of the house. 15min Walk to the restaurants.... Kissamos is a great home base heading for the beautiful beaches of Elafonissi, Falarsana and Balos. If you’re going to Kissamos you should stay here. Nicos and his wife are perfect hosts! Absolutely recommendable!

    Tassilo2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great week at Nikos. He gave us great restaurant tips and his wife brought delicious Greek dishes to taste. Very nice and warm hosts. Kissamos is centrally located to explore many area attractions. The view from the terrace to the sea is great. The outside kitchen leaves nothing to be desired. We will gladly come back and highly recommend this airbnb.

    Ela2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent view, the host family was very friendly and provided us with real useful information. The decor is better than in the photo. The high bed made getting up in the morning really distressing as it was unbeatable in terms of comfort. Especially the evening hours on the open, large balcony was unique. Highly Recommended.

  • My family stayed in Room 2 and it was perfect. Two adults and a 5 & 7-year-old. Clean, stylish, calming. The apartment kitchen was set up perfectly with many appliances to cook at home. A pool was being built during our stay and even with the huge tractors it was a quiet room and they did not work early or late. The A/C was cold and easy to use. Great views from all windows. I would stay here again for sure. Communication was easy with the host.

  • Paula is the ideal host: very kind and discreet. Imagining that we would be late, he made us find in the fridge a very rich tray with vegetables, cherry tomatoes, cheese, olives, eggs and croutons, accompanied by an excellent red wine and a small bottle of delicious extra virgin olive oil: a real treat ! She always met our needs and gave us very useful advice and directions for our stay in Crete. The house, ideal for a couple, was very clean and equipped with everything you need. The location is convenient because in the center of the small village of Drapanias, a few minutes drive from the largest Kissamos and 30 km from the unmissable Chania; it is also strategic to visit all the western part of Crete with its enchanting beaches. Thanks.

    Giuseppe2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Close to Phalassarna, Kissamos, Gramvoussa-Balos, Topolia Gorge, Hania ..., Paula's house is a good choice for staying in the area. Very good choice because Paula is an exceptional attention for its guests. On arrival, she offered us a dish of vegetables from her garden as well as olive oil from the property, gave us many tourist information. It has been a pleasure talking with her and her husband. The apartment is comfortable with possibility to eat outside on the large private terrace. We really enjoyed our stay at Paula and recommend this good address.

  • I and my husband and my 13-year-old son had a great time! from the hospitality of Paula who welcomed us giving us useful information and also letting us find tray with vegetables and cheeses that we really appreciated, the perfect cleanliness of the house and also as a location from where you can reach the various beautiful beaches in the north west of the island. Really recommended!

    Giuseppina2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • We can only agree with the previous reviews. Paula's house could not have been better for our one-week Cretan vacation. She is an incredibly friendly and accommodating hostess - receiving us delicious home-grown delicacies and indulging us daily with fresh vegetables and even a home-cooked Greek meal. The accommodation is perfect for two people, very clean and even if the kitchen is very small, everything is there. We cooked there more often and we did not miss anything. The location of the accommodation is great, Elafonissi, Falassarna, Balos, the Samaria Gorge and Kissamos and Chania are easily accessible from there. We rented our rental car directly at the airport and also believe that a rental car should be required at the location to explore all the beautiful corners in the area on your own. Parking is possible directly in front of the house. In the bakery, a few minutes walk away, we have in the morning bought delicious and very cheap bread. All around so the best Airbnb! Thanks for everything Paula, we love to come back and had a wonderful time!

    Marc2019-09-03T00:00:00Z

We had little attention from the parents of Nektarios with caffe fredo, cakes and local products available in the house (olive oil, raki, fruit, white wine crest). I highly recommend this place.

  • The rooms are in a very nice location for relaxation with a very attentive surroundings. Some days it needed air-conditioning in the room. Breakfast was not special and the time was very strict (08:40 - 10:00). Also, the lady who cares and cleans the rooms could be more relaxed so that she would not push the guests for the room cleaning hours and of course could make less noise during their cleanliness.

Breakfast ok, nice room and small kitchen, beautiful pool but the sea is next door so we preferred the sea which was 27 degrees with clear water. staff friendly, and helpful.

The management of the apartment by Niko and Anna is truly spectacular, every day fresh eggs, homemade cakes and many little gems that denote the great sense of hospitality of this family. Of course it is not recommended for those who want to stay in front of the beach or have no interest in animals.

Nopigia is one of the oldest villages in the area and used to be a center for wine distribution. In front of the village lies a vast beach, which stretches to the west up to Kissamos. The beach is sandy with clear and shallow waters. If you walk to the east, the beach becomes rockier and more secluded. There are several pebbly and rocky coves to the east.

  • the reviews were super enthusiastic and i must say i have never been greeted in such a way before. Daily attentions and their availability and kindness have made us feel at home and even in our family. Always respectful of our space, it is really a unique welcome. Everything was on the premises, laundry, sponge, soap, and even meal arrival, very nice not to have everything to buy! The location is on the road to the southwest, which for us was ideal for moving every day to other places. This part of the island is beautiful with colors and beautiful hikes, climbs etc. thank you again for this great stay to which you contributed greatly!

    Elodie2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is terribly equipped, we loved the breakfast on the terrace facing the Cretan mountains. Easy access to the beach and the first choice of stefanias, and the good food of his mom. A welcome that we left to regret.

    Gonzalo2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • We , that’s our 9 and 12 year old kids had a fantastic time at the farm. We got fantastic tips of the nice beaches nearby and especially enjoyed Naya Beach Bar and the remote beaches in Western Crete that we found through a book that was in the apartment. Kids enjoyed feeding the rabbits, chickens and goats. Despite the closeness to a busy road we slept really well as everything was comfortable and cosy. We loved the food that was cooked for us! Had a fab time!

    Natascha2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend Stefania's apartment. The apartment was clean and spacious, with a beautiful outdoor terrace (which allowed to admire a beautiful starry sky). The welcome of Stefania's family is simply exceptional: the children loved the visit of the farm and the good traditional dishes prepared by Stefania and her mother. Personally, I also enjoyed sitting with Stefania's parents (whose mother, Sofia, was an English teacher), and having interesting discussions about Greece. The apartment is well located and allows quick access to the (more) beautiful beaches of Crete.

    Houria2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • After 2 years we came back for another paradise vacation in Kaloudiana !! ;) Everything’s perfect as usual, apartment was superb prepared for our stay. We arrived very late and received warm welcome, not to mention fantastic dinner made by Sofia, with excellent wine and raki from Nikiforos. We love spending time in terrace, this time it was upgraded with new fatboys and lights. Very nice indeed! We are definitely coming back again, it is a real pleasure to enjoy relaxed vacation in Stefania’s house.

    Michal2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • A truly unforgettable welcome ... Stefania and her mother Sophie do everything to make them feel at home. An excellent meal was waiting for us on arrival, fresh eggs from the farm every day, little cheese slippers for our departure ... The house is very comfortable, decorated with care and very clean. The location is ideal for visiting the west. A rental not to be missed ...

    Franck2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a wonderful holiday in Stefania's house, indeed we extended our stay by two days .... we were sorry to leave. The house is cozy, fresh, clean, has a nice terrace where it is pleasant to relax, the location is convenient for visiting the western part of Crete and its beautiful beaches. But what has remained in our hearts is the warm hospitality of all, it seemed to us to be in the family, our mother Sophie also offered us lunch when we arrived. It is truly a recommended place, for us it remains the best place where we have stayed. Thanks again Stefania.

    Chania, Greece

    Beautiful 200 year old stone house in quiet village, fully renovated in 2014, with all modern amenities. Shady patio, garden, spacious roof terrace with stunning sea and mountain views, private parking. 2 km to lovely sandy beach, 5 km to the nice town of Kissamos.
    Villa Luna, a 100 sqm stone house, is situated in the tiny village of Pano Drapanias, where you can enjoy absolute quiet and stunning views. The nearest mini market and taverna is in Kato (lower) Drapanias, a few minutes walk down the hill. The area offers lovely walks and some of the most beautiful beaches in Western Crete, like the 5 km long and almost deserted Drapanias Beach (2 km away) and the famous beaches of Falassarna (18 km) and Elafonissi (50 km). The nearest town is Kissamos (5 km), a charming, everyday greek town with many shops, restaurants, bars and all services. Bustling Chania is a 30 minutes and 35 km drive away. Distanse to airport: 50 km.
    If you are looking for a beautiful holiday house with a real greek feel, in a quiet village where the goats, hens and wild birds do the "talking", then Pano Drapanias is the right place for you. If you love beautiful beaches and not to many tourists, then the Kissamos area is the right place for you too. The area is also a gem for those who like walking trips and archeology.
  • This place was exactly what we were looking for! Beautiful oasis in the countryside with the most spectacular rooftop view of the region and ocean. Very cozy spot - wish we stayed longer! Lots to see and do in the area. We would definitely recommend.

    Katherine2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very special villa - very carefully and imaginatively thought through. Quiet, private, near the sea and several good tavernas. Couldn’t recommend more highly.

    Rebecca2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful independent house on the Cretan hills. Location perhaps uncomfortable for who wants to comfortably "live life" but exceptional for those who want to relax. Equipped with everything you can ask for a vacation home. Extremely timely to intervene in case of problems.

    Annalisa2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very nice with two beautiful terraces. The rooms are big, we felt very good in the villa Luna with our two big girls. There is a lot of equipment. The situation, in a quiet village, is very relaxing. The area is beautiful and we could discover beautiful beaches. We were well received. This trip was great.

    Estelle2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Expect the holiday home of your dreams. Stone wall and neat decoration. House with everything you need for a good stay. Well placed to shine on the west of the island. (Falassarna, Balos, Elafonissi ...) We loved staying there.

    Fatiha2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to live in real village this is your choice. Absolutely calm and beautiful place. The house itself is very comfortable. Big terrace with sea and mountain view is a good place for the breakfast or drinking wine or for chatting with the cats that visiting you all day around. High recommended.

    Natasha2019-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • House with soul! Villa Luna is artistically and personally designed and we have had a nice week in quiet surroundings. Well equipped kitchen, great bathroom with towel, blower and good hot water. Good beds and decent duvets. Lovely and cool patio at the entrance and a large roof terrace with great views that everyone will love. Storage room with sun loungers, chairs, umbrellas and pillows at our disposal. If you wanted to go around a bit then we would recommend renting a car. Others and Trond have good contacts as they communicate. Travel tips from the hosts came in handy: Falassarna, Elafonisi, Polyrinia and Kissamos are some of them. A day trip to Rethymno town where we experienced atmospheric streets and alleys and scents of coffee and freshly baked goods. The Old Town and the Castle were also visited, but we longed for quiet Drapanias and Kissamos where old men sit on small taverns, drink raki and follow their lives. Thanks Trond and Andre for good information before the trip and during your stay. You responded quickly when we sent a request. Can highly recommend Villa Luna. Will be happy again!

    Gunlaug2019-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place with lots of thoughtful artistic touches. We particularly appreciated the amazing views from the roof terrace - the perfect place to chill out! We very much appreciated all Trond and Andre’s helpful tips on places to go. We particularly loved the walk to the top of the hill at Polyryrrenia and the stunning beach at Elafonisi. There is a fab little bakery in Drapanias near the mini market that does great sweet and savoury pastries. This is a wonderful, unspoiled corner of Crete, particularly beautiful in spring when the wild flowers are out. Thank you, Trond and Andre, for being excellent hosts and also to Neil for the efficient check-in process. We would love to return.

    Ano Drapanias, Greece

    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.

    Julian2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Jon2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Maria2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    father's house is warm and welcoming. It has two large bedrooms and a large kitchen, dining room and living room. In the courtyard there is private parking and in the garden to have your coffee or your drink. It is only 800 meters from the sea. Just 20 min away is the huge Falasarna beach and you can go to the world's only lagoon to enjoy the unique sunset in the blue-green waters. About 40 min from the house, if you head south, you will meet the famous Elafonissi with its gold and red sand

In our area you will find dozens of taverns where you can taste traditional Cretan dishes, made from local products. You can also enjoy your coffee or your drink at several cafes in the area. We wish you a good stay in Kissamos and a good holiday. Sincerely Father Nicholas and Nectaria
    Η γειτονιά είναι αρκετά ήσυχη. Ο δρόμος που έχει είναι χαμηλής κίνησης και έτσι δεν υπάρχει φασαρία των αυτοκινήτων. Όλοι οι ιδιοκτήτες των κατοικιών είναι με οικογένειες και είναι υπέροχο να βλέπεις τα παιδιά της γειτονιάς να παίζουν όλα μαζί στο δρόμο ανέμελα.
  • I will start with the fact that I am not in the habit of writing such rave reviews - but there I really could not do otherwise. Imagine a unique, authentic, enriching experience with attentive, endearing people, and unparalleled kindness. It is all this and even more that you will discover by coming to Nicholas and Nectaria. For us who are long-term travelers, this kind of place is a real home, away from our home. I do much more than recommend: this house must be your place of passage if you want to discover Crete, its traditions and its local culture. Thank you both, we will always keep you a warm and privileged place in our hearts. And why not offer the same to you if one day you come to see us in France!

    Jérôme2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend 200%, home can not be better with all the little touches that make the differences. Impeccable housing. The location is perfect, not far from the sea and not too ready for tourists, you can park the car, it is very easy to access.

    Sylvain2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Crete has been wonderful, an experience that will remain forever. In a good part, due to the fantastic family that housed us at Father's House in Kissamos, with Airbnb. In the house, very well cared for, modern and clean, it lacks nothing. From all kinds of cooking utensils, salt, sugar, spices, ... even, we found pasta, rice, coffee, ... detergent for washing machine, soap for washing dishes ... up to a parasol or a salabret to go to the beach. On the other hand the hosts brought bread, eggs, tomatoes, peppers, ... so often, that we could not finish them. Well located to go to the best destinations of Crete West and located in a very quiet place. The most remarkable fact, however, is the extraordinary and permanent good reception. Tips, recommendations, accompaniments to wineries, barbecues together, and endearing conversations always accompanied by the question, "do you like a Greek coffee?" Do not miss it. Never have imagined such a host. Now they have become friends. A 10 in everything. We will return.

    Beatrice2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • If we could put more stars we would have done It is family place conviale and full of love It will have been our most wonderful moment The apartment is very clean and well kept (to tell you we stayed two more days than expected!) Housing suitable for children and babies without worries When to visit it is 1 hour from paleanchora 1h from elafonissi 30 minutes from balos and 15-20 minutes from falasarna 1h from Chania Nicolas et nectaria are the perfect hosts to help you get around. They also know how to entertain you with lots of little touches it was great

    Justine2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is our best experience in Crete and generally in Greece. In life, the room looks better than in the photo. There was everything for a comfortable stay. The owners of the house are very nice people. Kissamos we liked no less than Chania. Come to Father's House in Kissamos and you will not regret it! 100 stars!!!

    Aleksandr2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was by far the best airbnb experience I've had so far. Nektaria and Father Nikolaos are the nicest people around. They made sure our stay was very nice and comfortable. They brought us some fresh vegetables and other foods to enjoy. On our last night they invited us to enjoy a nice dinner with them and their children. We got to see such a lovely family! They were always ready to help us with whatever we needed. The father's house felt like home for the 5 days we were there! Nektaria and father Nikaloas amazed us by their hospitality and kindness. I would highly recommend this place, you will have an experience more valuable than just an airbnb, you'll experience the true kindness of their hearts. I had an amazing experience with amazing people!

    Lucia2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Father's house is a fantastic opportunity to stay at to explore the west side of Crete! The room is sparkling clean, with all amenities and the hosts are extremely nice and helpful. We enjoyed our stay!

    Giorgos2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Hospitality like family. The house is ~5 mins from town center, but you need a car. Recently renovated, very clean and with so many treats, wine, vegetables, fruits, cheese... Full kitchen equipment. But most of all, advice, love, and family feel. Thank you.

    Kissamos, Greece

    Enjoy your holidays in a majestic place with view the gulf of Kissamos.The turist unit is newly built in Korfalonas beach , next to a quiet beach.The excellent location in the beach provides the perfect environment to enjoy a relaxing holiday.
    Room offer clean, fresh interiors complemented by breathtaking sea views and a full range of amenities. Décor is simple and modern, enhanced by air-conditioning and a private balcony.Internet Wi-fi access is available for free.
    Direct access to sandy beach just only some metres! Peaceful location away from national road, traffic and cities! Good point to visit the famoys Balos lagoon by car or by boat. Explore the south and north West part of Crete.
  • Looking for peace and quiet? Book some nights at Antonis’ place! Here à the reasons why my stay was really nice: -The room has all the advantages of an hotel (therefore very very clean for an Airbnb) and the balcony (with a drying rack) has a direct view on the beach and sea, which is very nice. - Even though I had some issue with my Internet connection and told Antonis quite late when I was going to arrive, he was very reactive and available directly. - He provides town map and some good advices. - Furthermore, and most important, Antonis is very friendly :) he even dropped me in Chania with his car when I left. - I didn’t use the swimming pool as it was November and out of season but the terrasse is very nice and there is a cool hamac and lots of sun beds to relax in. If you planned to go there, I arrive by bus in Kissamos and it is not so difficult to access to the hotel by the beach ( if you have a backpack, otherwise it may be tricky to carry a trolley in the sand.. but then you can walk along the road, seems easy too), it takes maybe 30min by foot. Another tip, go to the “bakery” named chocolate, they made excellent (and cheap) Greek desserts. There are also some nice one-day hiking circuits to do in the direct surrounding. Si vous voulez vous endormir avec le bruit des vagues et le chant de criquets, foncez!

    Maëlle2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

    Armin2019-10-23T00:00:00Z

    Elfi2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good stay in this sea facing accommodation, with a nice pool. Antonis is very attentive and informed us precisely the place and some details for our visits.

    Claire2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place and host

    Clemence2019-05-30T00:00:00Z

    Ionut2019-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good stay at Antonis. He was very attentive and very available. The hotel is a good base for exploring the western part of the island by car.

    Jean-Baptiste2019-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • The room is unbeatable, modern, clean, overlooking the sea. The place is very quiet and in an area of great nature, the kindness of Antonis shows off the hospitality of the Cretan people, he was always attentive to all our needs and advised us very beautiful places. Highly recommended, close to beautiful beaches and local gastronomy

    Stefanitsa’s house is a charming place for relaxed vacation. You are welcome to stay and experience life on our little farm!
    Stefanitsa's house is a lovely, fully renovated stone house in Kaloudiana. It has sunny rooms, comfortable beds,fully equipped kitchen and a charming garden. Depending on the season, you can enjoy our oranges, lemons, peaches or grapes!
    Stefanitsa's house is close to taverns with traditional meditteranean cuisine, mini-markets, pharmacy and bus stop for public transport.
  • Amazing welcome !! Very nice house. Arriving in the evening, feet under the table since Stefania's mom had prepared a delicious meal for us. Bottle of wine on the table as well as raki. And something to help out in the fridge. And rebellious during our stay. Visit the farm animals with the dad, which delighted our 21 month old boy; goats, hens, ducks, turkeys, rabbits ... and we came out of there with eggs, tomatoes, squash ... Hyper pragmatic house for young children, high chairs and cot. Very cute garden. Only small problem: the road that goes to Elafonissi just behind But we will keep a very good memory of it. From memory, this is the best reception I have had in Airbnb

    Alice2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Stefania and Nikoforos (her father) are perfect hosts. The stay was THE Airbnb experience! Family, warm, authentic! The apartment is well equipped, nothing is missing. The garden and the terrace are a dream. We got an interesting farm tour which especially our little son really enjoyed. Stefania gave us great tips and was always there when we needed something. The small village of Kaloudiana is sympathetic has a good tavern and also two mini markets. The nearest beach is a 5 minute drive away. Thanks Stefania for everything!

    Anna2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Stefania and her family are perfect hosts. They offer a big space with a beautiful garden (you're sitting beneath citrus and pomegranate trees), which is next to the old Road. Even we arrived after midnight Stefania welcomed us friendly and brought us a fantastic warm self cooked meal of her mother. We came with a family of 4 grown ups, there's enough space for everybody! Kitchen (we cooked sometimes, everything you need is there), bathroom (the shower is big, very good water), everything perfect and clean! We got very good tips of sightseeing places, beaches, taverns,.. a good location to be in western crete!! Stefania and her parents are such friendly and hosting people, I really recommend to go there! Thanks again!

    Lena2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Stefania offers a beautiful apartment fully equipped and very clean. It is bigger than what it is shown in the photos. You can easily reach two minimarkets and a tavern on foot, and all the most beautiful beaches are reachable at most within 1 hour by car. We really appreciated the visit at the farm guided by Sofia (Stefania's mother), and all the advices regarding typical taverns and bars by Stefania. Really recommended!!!

    Tania2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house is perfect for going with children. The deal has been excellent. Both Stefania and Sofia and her husband have been very attentive to us. Everything written in the other comments is true. We have prepared food, they have taught us the farm, they always worried about us. The house has everything and it is very clean. The garden is perfect. It has a road ahead of the way, sometimes quite cars, which prevents children from leaving alone.

  • Very welcome from Stefania and her parents. His mother has prepared delicious traditional Cretan dishes with the products of their farm. The house is very clean and spacious, perfect for a family of 5. We will come back with pleasure.
