In this house, you will spend relaxing and memorable vacations for you and your children. The house is built on a plot of 1500 sq.m. on the edge of an olive grove and fruit trees.

From that position, you have a top view of the large and spacious living room, lots of natural light from the surrounding windows and quiet restful sleep. A window offers unique views day and night at the beaches of Akrotiri and the rough -dry but at the same time green- unique Cretan landscape. You will be able to observe from the coziness of your bed, sheep and goats playing at the trees and the night starry sky while you read a book at this cozy playful corner.

Right next to the large living room there is an amazing Kitchen with all brand new, clean appliances, perfect wooden surfaces, stone floors and all the equipment you will need for preparing any meal you feel like. The view from the large window at the mountain of Stavros and the endless groves and fields will keep you relaxed and calm while you prepare your own delicacies!

House is surrounded by large yards, gardens, and Mediterranean trees groves. There are two verandas. A 25 sq.m. at the front of the house and a smaller one next to the Kitchen, each one offering a different experience depending on the time of the day.

The back veranda which is located right next to the Kitchen offers a unique panoramic view of the legendary mountain of Stavros where the movie “Zorbas the Greek” was shot from the book of the great Nikos Kazantzakis. From there you can enjoy your breakfasts or morning coffees or at night stay mesmerized by the quietness of the location, the silence of which only breaks the summer sounds of the Cretan habitat.

The views of the rising full moon from behind the Stavros mountain will stay imprinted forever in your minds. For your convenience here is a list of the full moon circle (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

The same level of excitement but a totally unique and distinct experience is ‘reserved’ for your early mornings. The sunrises paint the whole landscape in purplish orange colors and the morning bird sounds will prepare you for perfect day trips to the surrounding world famous beaches of Akrotiri region, which are all located at some minutes of distance from our strategically positioned beautiful cottage!

The front 25 sq.m. veranda is surrounded by flowers and plants and a beautiful garden. On the top, there is a wooden pergola where thick climbing plants will give you great shades during the day and fragrances of the Cretan plants during the night. It has a large marble custom made table, beautiful views and it is the great spot for relaxation spending quality time after your long tiring day trips to the surrounding beaches of Akrotiri

Around the house, there are all kinds of flowers and trees and unique Cretan herbs and plants guaranteed to enrich your senses with beautiful fragrances day and night. There is also an outdoor seating area with a large wooden table and benches right next to the large barbecue and wood oven for your grilled meals at the side of the house right next to our olive groves!


“I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. Nothing else.”

― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

We stayed in many nice places in Crete, but this beautiful house and the warm welcome we received was by far our favourite. We would definitely like to return! Other reviews here pretty much sum up our thoughts. We couldn't recommend it more to anyone wanting to find a peaceful place to unwind.

This beautiful cottage exceeded our expectations and was every bit as good, if not better than the photos suggest. From the moment we checked in - which was simple and straight forward, we felt at home. We were given a lovely warm welcome by George and Nikos on our arrival and nothing was too much trouble for them. They asked us to treat the place as if it was our own home and had provided basic groceries, drinks, fruit and fresh eggs from the chickens in the garden. The cottage is very beautiful, clean, authentic and homely. The views of Stavros mountain from the terrace at the back of the house are stunning and an amazing place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. It is also very quiet and peaceful so ideal if you really just need to get away from it all. The local beach of Tersanas is only a 2-3minute drive away or a 15 minute walk (longer with children!) and is absolutely fabulous. A small little cove, crystal clear water, a local taverna and beach bar - what more do you need? There are so many other gorgeous beaches very close by too such as Kalathas and Stavros. You really do not need to go very far in this area to find a beautiful spot for the day. Apart from the stunning cottage and gardens, the highlight for me of staying here was meeting Nikos. It is obviously a very well loved family home and Nikos comes every morning to make sure the gardens are watered and tended to. My kids ran out to see him in the mornings to help him feed the chickens. He is never intrusive and respects your space but is also so friendly and warm and will help with anything you ask for. I think we may miss him even more than the house! Thank you to all of your family for making our holiday home so special.

I use air b and b a lot across the world and this is one of the best I have stayed in. The villa is beautiful and in a stunning location, between the mountains and the sea. It is quiet and surrounded by olive trees and flowers, with chickens in the garden and a short walk to the beach. Nikos and his family are extremely kind- we had a 30 hour delay on our flight and they were good at keeping in touch and were there to greet us even though it was outside check in times. Maria left us some delicious home-made food on the porch and the small details of welcoming snacks in the fridge and toiletries in the bathroom meant the hosts went an extra mile to ensure our stay was the best it could be. Thank you so much, we would love to come back one day.

Great place. Lovely house with a beautiful garden. Two verandas allow you to fully appreciate the privacy and nature around you. There are a few secluded beaches within walking distance. Shops and restaurants within 5 min drive. You need a car to fully enjoy this part of Crete. Don't miss the two Monasteries 10 min away, especially the one in the hills with the gorge that leads to beach katoliko

We have been treated like family and it was a wonderful adventure, especially for our daughter who found a Greek granddad replacement for a few days!! Thanks so much! Hospitality was great, with lots of little treats for us to try and a special meal as surprise on the last day. The house is as depicted, nice location, a bit secluded but close to all the great beaches. You will need a car to reach it (or at least a taxi) but it`s worthwhile the trip.

The first thing that strikes you is the lush garden - instead of neighbors you will find olive groves, fig trees, cactuses, and colorful flowers, welcome to Cretan paradise! The house itself is beautifully decorated and very comfortable (air conditioning, Wi-Fi, very well equipped kitchen with washing machine, separate bedroom, 2 terraces with breathtaking landscape of the mountains). The host greeted us with a bottle of rakia and sweets, and there were more gifts waiting in the refrigerator. After 2 days we were given change of bed linen and fresh towels. We felt very much taken care off and the communication was easy. It was very kind of Nikos to surprise us up halfway through our trip with a tray of local delicacies like stuffed vine leaves, peppers and tomatoes, thank you for a treat! The location of the house is perfect, a 10min walk from a cute ( at times nudist) beach and a short 5-10 min drive from other beaches worth visiting. Even though you're only 15min away from the airport you feel secluded. We would love to come back!

George's place is rustic and has the most beautiful views that we saw on our two week holiday. The beaches are really beautiful, much better than expected. His parents are so very kind and leaving treats (delicious food) They go out of their way but are not intrusive in any way. This is really a very unique stay and if one enjoys authenticity, then this is the place for you.
