In about 16 km. from the city of Chania-Crete, there is a fully equiped appartment (A/C, TV, Wi-Fi, central heating),available all year, with 1 bedroom, bathroom and kitchen with sitting room with sofa-bed for an extra person. It has a wonderfull view to the "white mountains"(Omalos) and is only 7 km from the beach Platanias and Stalos.The beach of Platanias is a large sandy (website hidden) is organised all along its length, with sun loungers and umbrellas.Stalos beach is also a very long and sandy beach with a tourist-aimed waterfront. In fact, Stalos beach extends for so long that if you prefer some tranquility, there are areas that don't get so crowded.If you want to explore the whole island i would recommend to rent a car.The apartment is located in a very quiet area so if you need a quite place close to nature in a friendly enviroment we are sure you 'll come to the right place!!!If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.
In our estimation, Sofia and Teo should be designated "Super Hosts" status. You will not meet two people who are more kind and giving. Their mountain-side home is spectaculor with all the amenities and close to rural adventures and the most spectaculor gorge that rivals all!
Our apartment was spacious, exceptionally clean and stocked with so many extras it was above and beyond our expectations. We hated tp leave our superhosts!
We would highly recommend this location to any and all who find themselves in this corner of the world!
Our week at Hawkhill cottage was really enjoyable. Sofia and Theo are great hosts: very generous and hospitable. They have a knack of making you feel welcome and cared for without intruding.
They provided us with some essentials when we arrived and some lovely local produce and gave us tips on where to visit. The place was spotlessly clean and there was plenty of bed linen and towels. We enjoyed sitting on the verandah looking out at the view of distant hills in this quiet spot. It all contributed to a relaxed and happy holiday.
The cottage is outside a small village well away from any of the tourist areas. It's a good base for travelling round the west of the island if you hire a car.
We had a wonderful start to our trip with our stay with Sofia and Teo. Chania is a very interesting city to visit but staying some distance away helped us settle in and adjust to a more leisurely pace. The apartment is spotless, very modern and was perfect for us. When we arrived they welcomed us with genuine warmth and hospitality. Each day when we returned we were warmly greeted and spent time in their home discussing the day, our plans and life in general. Besides generously providing fresh food for breakfasts they gave us many llittle treats that went above and beyond what we could have ever expected.
We were very fortunate to have stayed with Sofia and Tao. Besides their wonderful accommodation we also felt we made friends. Hopefully we will be able to reciprocate sometime in the future.
We were in this appartment on the first week of September. We loved our stay in Koufos! Sofia and Teo were great hosts, easy to talk with and always willing to help and give advice. They were highly responsible that we had such a great time in Crete!! =)
The appartment was really clean and tidy, nicely decorated and has amazing views to the valley and the montains. The sorroundings are very quite, so if you are looking for accomodation outside the touristic routes, this is your place!
I hope we can come again soon!!!
We spent a very nice time at Sophia apartment. All is very clean and comfortable. It's a lovely apartment, very well equipped, with all the things you need. We also found some local products (tomato, honey, oil..) Thanks for these very good things!
The area is quiet with a wonderful view on the valley. It's a great place to explore the West Coast and Chania.
Sophia and Theo are very nice people and we thank them for the very friendly Welcome. We recommend this all place for all the people who look for a quiet place, good products and over all to meet very nice people.
Thank Sophia and Theo for the great time spent at Hawk Hill Cottage.
Sofia and Teo are incredible hosts! very nice, cool, enjoying talking about their island, culture etc.
the apartment is wonderful, you have everything you need, also good products direct from the country. the village of koufos is really nice, quiet, the cook of the tavern very good.
15minutes from the coast, a central place to visit the west of Crete, also in the south (sougia, paleochora), and only 15km from Hania!
sofia and teo, thank you for all ;)
Sofia was a great host in a great place. Very warm welcome!!!
Oh, gosh - where can we start?! Sofia and Theo were absolutely AMAZING hosts. This is the best BNB experience we've ever had! They were both helpful with everything, we got so many good recommendations for restaurants, places to visit, excursions, beaches to visit (definitely go to Elafonisi!) Sofia also helped us with checking bus/boat schedules. They have a wonderful garden and orchards at their house, from which Sofia collected a ton of fresh veggies for our salads! Also fresh oranges for orange juice! The apartment is fully equipped, well decorated and stocked with everything in the kitchen that you need to prepare meals on your own. It was difficult to leave Hawk Hill and we hope to come back again some day :)
We spent four nights at Hawk Hill Cottage, and loved every minute. Sofia and Teo were wonderful hosts, and we really enjoyed getting to know them and the area in which they live. The cottage, which is an apartment on the ground floor of their beautiful house, is equipped with everything you could need - it is clean and comfortable, and is a great place to base yourselves - a world away from the busy main roads, but within easy reach of many interesting places to visit.You could spend hours just wandering the tracks and footpaths in the area, or go further afield to visit the mountains or the spectacular coast - so some sort of transport is essential. We would highly recommend a stay at Hawk Hill - for the peace and tranquility, the stunning views across the orange groves to the mountains beyond, and for the lovely welcome from Sofia and Teo - and the organic oranges they grow are delicious, too.
It was a pleasure meeting two low profile and so talented people!!
Jane and John!!!...we really hope to see you again and we really hope we 'll make that trip to England to see, including you of course, all our friends!
Thank you very much for your good words and next time we 'll do even better we hope!
We had a wonderful time at the appartment of Sofia and Teo.
In the night it is really quiet and in the morning you wake up and there is this wonderful view. The appartment was clean and very well equiped. The Sofia and Teo helped us a lot to find the best beaches on crete. I hope we will be there again soon. We can only recommend this appartment!!!
