This is a fantastic place for a holiday. Isolated yet close to a small, very charming village. Also well located to see the Samaria Gorge, Knossos, Elafonisi beach. The views are beautiful. The cottages are extremely charming - the main building is over a hundrwd years old and retains a lot of its old character. The pool is an absolute delight too. Andreas was fantastic at guiding us to restaurants, car rentals, beaches etc. We were nine if us who stayed here and would highly, highly reccomend it.

We loved our stay at Filippouvilla. Andreas was extremely helpful, meeting us at the villa despite a very late arrival and providing some essentials to ensure that our one-year olds weren't without milk and breakfast the following day. The villa is great for three couples / families - the three separate apartments all surround an excellent communal space with garden, bbq and pool. And it's incredibly peaceful - the only sound is the tinkling of sheep bells in the nearby fields. It is fairly remote - you definitely need a car - with the closest shops being in Vryses a few km away and the beaches at Georgiopoulos and Kalyves around a 15 minute drive from the villa. Though there is a lovely taverna in Maza, about 10 minutes walk away. Would thoroughly recommend for a peaceful break.

We enjoyed a fantastic stay at Andreas' lovely villa. The villa itself is nicely decorated and appointed and provides plenty of space to easily accommodate a couple of families. The spaces are split between three linked buildings, each with their own bathrooms and kitchen facilities. The real highlight are the terraces, garden and pool which are truly wonderful. The established trees, plants and lawn really make a difference and provide lovely shaded spaces. The kids loved the pool which is big enough and deep enough for all the jumping and diving in they want to do all day! The villa is set in the hills providing a great set of views to the coast and the mountains. The nearby village provides most of the amenities you could want including a couple of small supermarkets, a range of cafe's / restaurants a great ice cream parlour etc. There are great sections of beach a very short drive away and there is easy access with a car to Chania and other areas of interest. Chania itself is well recommended for a visit. Andreas was really great about helping out with suggestions on places to go and very response so that was greatly appreciated. We'd definitely come back if we return to Crete and hope to do so soon!

A really great house - 3 flats in one bigger house, really well equipped, and clean and welcoming. The outside space especially is awesome. The pool, lovely and clean, lit up at night, bbq area with wood fired oven. A fantastic space for a gathering. Andreas was helpful generous and trusting in our use of his family house. His father even dropped by the second day to make sure we had everything we needed which was a lovely touch. You can really feel the pride this family takes in hosting. The surrounding area is quite wild and off the beaten track, just how we like it. There's a vineyard you can visit near by, and a real Cretan town with proper shops and cafes.

This place is great. The descriptions are accurate, the host, Andreas, is very helpful, generous, helpful when needed and has good recommendations. Geographically is wonderfully placed, in a most quiet place, but 2 km from a village with tavernas, shops, bakery and good coffee and a couple of hours away from all the interesting places in north-west and south-west Crete. The Resident itself is heaven, no less, and can accommodate two families. Worth every penny!

Our host received us with excellent directions and concern and flexibilty because we arrived very late in the night. We are a large family and had a wonderful stay, fully enjoying the beautiful courtyard and swimming pool, eating all our meals outside under the huge shady tree with the inspiring mountainous view. We appreciated the great hospitalilty of finding a gift of olive oil and fruits awaiting us, and loved picking the delicious grapes straight from the vines! Thank you Andreas and your family
