Sofia and Lefteris are the most wonderful hosts. The genuine care and concern for their guests is incredible and goes way beyond what is the usual for one renting their home. They are genuinely lovely people who warmth and hospitality shone through and made our holiday something very special and one that we will remember for so many wonderful reasons. The house itself is lovely and set in a quiet village where you can meet the special local Cretan people. Having a car is a must and good local beaches are only a 15 minute drive with the wonderful beach at Falassarna only an easy and straight forward 25 minutes drive away. For our family with 3 teenage children this was our favourite beach. We highly recommend Sofia and Lefteris' villa as you will have an experience that will make your holiday so special.

My family and I stayed with Sofia for two weeks during August. We had a great time on the island and found Sofia a very welcoming and attentive host. The house which is built from stone has all that you might require during your stay; Nohia is well placed to allow access to all the beaches in the east of Crete - places such as Balos and Falassarna are worth visits; because of the nature of the Cretan roads, short journeys take quite a long time and we didn't manage to explore as much of the island as we would have liked - the village offers an authentic Cretan experience with little in the way of tourism spoiling the place. I recommend the bakers which is behind glass doors that doesn't actually say 'baker' but we worked this out after a few days! In particular the sesame-cinnamon biscuits were a favourite with my family. You definitely need a car to stay at the house; the closest beach is about 20 minutes, although the best places are over an hour. Sofia provided us with a welcoming buffet which was most welcome as we flew-in to Heraklion and only arrived with her after midnight; she made a lovely greek orange cake, which my family loved. We also appreciated the complementary bottles of wine, raki and olive oil - after visiting the nearby 3,000 year old monumental olive tree we are integrating many more olive-oil products into our diet!

Such a beautiful house set in the stunning tranquil area of NOHIA, to explore the jewel that is Crete. Sofia and Lefteris demonstrate perfection as Airbnb hosts, with thoughtful welcoming gifts and -for us a much appreciated delicious chicken dish and Greek salad – after our sleepless night and then keeping them waiting, due to our long wait for our hire car! We sampled some of Sophia's husbands own produce – the gorgeous wine and superb olive oil which gave us the basis for some attempts at a Greek cuisine!! The Peach Jam was divine! Sofia has obviously spent much time, effort and research (lots of advice on places to go,) into ensuring that everything is perfect for her guests to experience the ultimate holiday in Crete. Thank you so much, Love Lucia and Steve, XX. Newcastle upon Tyne, England.

Villa Sofi is a great place to stay on Crete! A lovely location in a small, quiet village but still very close to larger towns full of cafes, tavernas and shops. Only 40mins to an hour drive to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The house has a quirky interior, full of trinkets and decorations and very homely! We loved the roof terrace for morning coffee. There is loads of space and it would especially suit a family with young children as the kids' bedroom is really cute! Kitchen was equipped with everything you could ever need. Sofia is a wonderful host, very helpful with many excellent recommendations. She welcomed us with a fresh cake, biscuits plus many homemade goodies and wine from their own vines. We loved the honey raki and preserved figs! Sofia even popped over one evening with some dessert after her daughters birthday. A truly gracious and caring host! There was so much to do in the area that we ran out of time! Please make sure you stay here longer than we did, you won't want to leave!

Sofia's place had everything we could need during our stay, from shampoo and nail polish remover to direction of what to do and where to go. Her villa is perfect for a family with children, just have to be careful with the stairs.

Sofia was a great and lovely host and gave us a very warm welcome with an excellent cretan cake (Yummi). She recommended a lot of restaurants beaches and things to do in the area. The little house is so nicely done up with all the things you need to feel like at home. It was the perfect place for a stay outside of all this tourist areas arround Creta.
