“What an experience in the Wild Garden. The house is in a beautiful location in the village of Assomatos. In and around the house is a lot of space and everything very cozy. Tina and Takis are super hosts and very lovely people. Tina gives you many tips about what to do in the area. There are 2 small shops and a restaurant in the village. Also a gas station, a nice museum and a ceramics shop. There are many beaches in the area. The village of Spilli is also very nice. On this side of Crete there is still true peace and authentic villages to be found. We also found the many sheep and goats a unique experience. We would say don't hesitate but do so! We hope to come back again. Greetings Hendrik and Greetje Valk.”
Ideal in times when social distancing is recommended. This is part of our grandparents' house, which we have renovated and still use as our own retreat. It is located in Kanevos, a true Cretan village with its calm and tranquility surrounded by the famous mountainous landscape of Crete. Disconnect from hectic schedules and re-connect with oneself and your travel-mates, while grasping the opportunity for hiking, enjoying the night-sky and South Rethymno (e.g. Plakias, Ammoudi, Rodakino, Damnoni).
“I had a wonderful 12 days holidays and really enjoyed Magda and Stella's cosy, clean and WELL equipped house at the end of the quiet village Kanevos. Away from the crowds and in 15 minutes at a beautiful beach, I tried a different one every day. I loved the mountains around the village and the view from the veranda is of a green valley, peaceful and rural. Coming 'home' from a day-trip, picking up a delicious meal from the local Taverna and a little supermarket to get anything you need, with fresh local products aswell. I felt welcome and at ease and Magda was a very good host. She always responded immediately and had original tips. The rocking chair and the comfortable couch, so relaxing ! Plenty of books about the island too. Thank you very much, I will definitely come back : )”
Perfect retreat for peace & tranquility, tucked away in the south of Rethymno countryside, with easy access to lovely beaches, archeological sites, the beach town of Plakias. Summer is amazing here, while fall, winter and spring are equally interesting, one can really find him/her self over this endless simple beauty. The village of Kanevos is serene and beautiful all year round! The house is located 30 meters away from the famous taverna Iliomanolis, one of the best taverns in Rethymno.
“We stayed 4 days in Andreas' house. (couple and two children). The parents Olga and Nikos are two lovely people, very discreet but present when needed. They welcomed us and looked after us making us taste some of their recipes. The house is in an excellent position to visit the main and beautiful beaches of the area. It is located in a small village with a good and cheap home-style tavern. The small but functional apartment has everything you need and is very clean. It has a beautiful terrace which unfortunately is not used by us because of the wind. Highly recommended.”
