  • Tina's house is very nice; a very calm tranquil space, well located on the south coast of Crete. Tina is very kind and helpful and a great host.

    Josephine2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house with a even more beautiful (private) garden, run by a very warm loving hostess. We felt very welcome and at home. The area is still quiet and undiscovered.

    Herma2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • I know all the other reviews say this so I am echoing everyone’s sentiments. Two days here was not enough. The area is absolutely spectacular. The views from Tina’s home can be best admired in person and her warm welcome and suggestions were perfect. We will be talking about this visit for a long time to come. Tina suggested the long drive along southern Crete to Chania which was the icing on the cake to a perfect few days. Highly recommend!

  • 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.

    Hendrik & Greetje2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • PERFECT! Beautiful place. Tina is very sweet and helpful, she gave us al lot of informations about the area and precious advice for beaches and restaurant. TOP!

    Tommaso2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is my fifth visit to Crete, a better corner than Preveli Bay - and better accommodation than Tina does not exist. Mic drop.

    Babak2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Extraordinary garden, beautiful house very well decorated and superb view, not to mention the hospitality and kindness of Tina: a real paradise (very well located too).

    Marie2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful apartment with lovely garden and terrace and an amazing view of the bay of plakias and the surrounding mountains. We made the mistake of only booking 3 nights, you’ll want to stay at least a week. Tina was perfectly helpful, really made sure we were having a good stay and shared her knowledge of the area. We had the best time here!

  • We spent 5 days in this accommodation in Drimiskos and were warmly welcomed by Eleftheria and Manoli. The place is very quiet and ideal for recharging. Beautiful views, fantastic beaches, idyllic taverns. A private vehicle is required for day trips.

    Chantal & Dominique2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house is perfectly clean and as shown in the ad. Eleftheria is very nice and reactive. She brought us food when we arrived and then another time during our stay.

    Esther2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great experience staying at Elefteria and Manoli's place. We had everything we needed inside the house, a great view, a small pool where we could cool a bit enjoying the view in the meantime. You should be prepare for driving on spectacular and rough roads in the mountain and to receive the cretan experience Elefteria is happy to share with you. She gave us some great products they make themselves, all bio and super tasty: olive oil, cheese, wine, raki, cheese pie, some jam and preserved artichoked. And she welcomed us a home made meal: musaka, which was so good. And one day she invited us to go to the local taverna where it was a musical event with great food and dance. Bottom line, you will not have the usual seaside holiday, you will have the mountain and seaside holiday combined with an original cretan experience.

    Lucia2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • A terrific view, great to come down! A great hostess and a warm welcome with homemade Mousakka and Greek salad! A dream! We can highly recommend the accommodation!

    Yvonne2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice house in a great location. Rest and relaxation are guaranteed. We liked it very much. Also great were the welcome with homemade food and the cake in between.

    Julia2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to stay with really amazing view over the mountains and sea. Very quiet and relaxing. Great host serving all kinds of very tasty own made food and always reachable for questions. We will book again!

    Ingrid2018-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Set within the wild Cretan mountains, our stay at House Liberty was perfectly peaceful. The view from the pool and terrace is spectacular and the drive to the home is breathtakingly stunning. Eleftheria is warm and welcoming, spoiling us with traditional local food. The house itself is very clean and comfortable, the kitchen is very well equipped so much so that we enjoyed eating out on the terrace most days with the beautiful view of the mountains and the sea. The area is idyllic, rugged and wild mountains open up to calm blue seas as far as the eye can see. The village of Drimiskos is a short walk down the path and has a lovely sheltered Taverna full of friendly faces. Thank you for a wonderful stay Eleftheria and for your amazing Cretan hospitality!

    Chris2018-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent choice for a relaxing holiday! Well equipped and super clean villa with spectacular view to the mountains and sea. And most of all, the warmest and welcoming Cretan hospitality we experienced from our hosts and the people in Drimiskos village! Local food and treats that Eleftheria kindly offered us were really tasty We loved the place, and deeply recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful holiday in Crete. Hope we can come back one day!

    If you wish to write, paint, live...come to the fairytale old village of Kato Mixorouma, and stay in a stone-built cottage in a garden flooded with flowers and trees on the bank of the river full of ducks and gees, and let the singing of the birds and the splashing of the river rock you to sleep and calm you.
    The property contains two small cottages, approximately 50sq m each in a 1000 sq m lot. The cottage in this ad has a small but practical kitchen, a living room with fireplace and a bathroom which is access through the living room and is semi open air. The sleeping area for 2, is on the built-in mezzanine. The cottages are quite simple, but appropriate. Mr Antonis, the owner, will offer true Cretan hospitality during your stay.
    . The History of Kato Mixorouma The village is in a very calm place surrounded by mountains right on the river. It is in the old historical village of Kato Mixorouma where very few people currently live, as the new village is built about 200-300 meters away. The village has old houses of traditional cretan architecture, which we are now in the process of trying to get the state to fund in order to preserve and define it as a traditional village. Here is a little bit of history….The settlement of Kato Mixorouma is referenced in the first known recording of settlements in Crete by Fr.Barozzi in 1577 and in the Basilicata in 1630. It is also referenced in the Turkish census in 1659 and in the Egyptian census in 1834. The Kato Mixorouma is built on the north bank of the river which starts in Spili,
  • The house was great! Where to start. Its location is perfect as it is in contact with the river and in the morning you wake up to the sound of water. The house has a truly traditional character without lack of amenities and facilities. The terrace and the garden between the two houses are very well designed and welcoming. A mini market and an oven are 200 meters away. Worth a visit!

    Konstantis2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was great,as the first time!

    Chara2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great location really in nature. It is an ideal place for anyone who wants to relax, relax away from the noise of the city and get in touch with nature. You can stroll around the river and explore the surrounding area.

    Πλουμίδης2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very charming and we had a very nice time there. Also, it is perfect to drive to different beaches in the South of Crete.

    Enrique2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • a real gem in the forest. edge of town. very secluded. practically on the river bank. peace and quiet, lovely and easy going. this stone house is a runaway from all your daily troubles. and the village is also very nice. cool walks and fruits falling on us from trees...

  • The room is very nice and Maria really kind. Good place for some relaxed days!

    Soph2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Cute room with amazing views and a basic kitchenette for cooking with pots, a pan, plates and cutlery! Maria also let us some home made honey and oil and a few special touches for our arrival, which we really appreciated! The arrival was a bit confusing as it was dark and we didn’t know our way through Plakias, but ended up putting “Hotel Eratos” on Google Maps which did the trick! Beautiful town and very close to shops and restaurants! Would recommend it!

    Lucrecia2018-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice room with private bath and nice sea view. Maria opened the heating before my arriving and she has been very nice to give all information I needed to reach the house. Clean, with WiFi. Hope to come back again.

    Panorama Luxury Rooms, is a modern accommodation which provides you a comfortable and a relax stay for your vacation. A sunny apartment with an endless wonderful view, features all the amenities that are required to make it your home away from home. Suitable for families, couples and friends. Take advantage from its direct access to south Crete and explore the unspoilt sceneries.
    The design of the apartment is contemporary. It consists of a room with 2 single comfortable beds and a small living room with all amenities. It has a private bathroom with shower. It is air-conditioned and offers a flat screen-TV for relaxing moments.
    Spili is located about 30km south of Rethymno, at an altitude of 430m, at the foot of Mount Vorizis, an offshoot of Psiloritis Mt. Its population is 800 inhabitants, but this number increases during the summer months. The villagers are mainly farmers, ranchers and merchants, but in recent years most young people deal with tourism. The village is a node for the south coasts and this makes its position particularly advantageous. Given the importance of its location, almost all basic services can be found in Spili, such as banks, post office, telecommunications, health center, police station and even the Cathedral Conference Center. Therefore, Spili is an ideal destination for foreigners and for Greeks, where they can combine their holiday without missing anything.
  • We are pleased with our stay at the accommodation. Excellent hospitality and amenities, spotless and beautiful, very nice and quiet place. I definitely recommend and recommend it.

    Manos2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Kalliopi and Pantelis are caring and generous hosts. They gave us tips to visit the surroundings. Our stay was top from arrival to departure. The room is comfortable, modern with all the necessary amenities and with a magnificent view of the mountains I highly recommend this accommodation.

  • We had such a wonderful time, we didn't even want to leave. On colder days, you can still lie in bed and look at the sea and read, and the terrace is absolutely beautiful. What a view! Thank you for the welcome cake and the fresh fruit!! Perfect November Getaway.. Thanks!!

    Johanna2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time, this house has pretty much everything one might need. The views across the coast are stunning. There are beautiful beaches around and in October there were only few people around - you can have parts of the beaches only for yourself. There are also several great taverns around Kerames (also in Kerames, but we haven't tried those), so even though it's no problem to cook your own meal at home you can always go out and have a nice dinner. Also, Rethymnon is only about an hour drive away, so it's possible to escape the countryside and stroll around the city (which is pretty touristy though).

    Kai2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Artemis Villa. The house is even better than the pictures. You enter the villa through a charming little flowery courtyard. The housing is at the top of the stairs where the landing is outside. From there, you see nothing but the sea. The door to the master bedroom opens to the view. Thus, each morning wake up is a real delight. The house is clean. There is a good flow of water. The terrace adjoins the kitchen and the view is breathtaking. There is everything you need to cook but you can also, as we did, eat almost always in a tavern (between 12 and 18 € for two, drinks included): the food is tasty, healthy and balanced (depending on what you order of course). The Cretan diet is one of the best in the world for health. There are two taverns in Kerames; we recommend instead the one in the center. Those of the beaches in the area are very good too. Nassi who runs the house for Antonia, responded quickly to all our questions. We were greeted with some Cretan specialties, sweets, a bottle of wine and enough to have breakfast (butter, tea, coffee, pastries). Thank you very much for this welcome. In the end we fell for this pretty traditional house with a breathtaking view of the sea, in an authentic Cretan village, quiet, far from mass tourism and in a beautiful and wild region (Exactly what we were looking for).

    Alain2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • This house was the best house for holidays ever. We loved the building, the hospitality, the surprising things in the fridge. The little village with the nice people and taverne, the wonderfull beaches not far away by car. Thanks a lot

    Christiane_und_Günter2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at Antonia’s place! View from the balcony was amazing. Kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms were all fantastic. We really liked the nearby Triopetra and Ligres beaches which were about 15 mins by car.

    Stephanie2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Charming house. Old but lovely renovated with 2 beautiful terraces and an amazing view over the mountains to the sea. The kitchen was incredibly well equipped. We were welcomed by Antoina's friend Nancy with some delicious Cretan treats and wine. The village is quiet, authentic, with a cafe, a taverna and the minimarkets sell all essentials, including some delicious local products. The beaches in the area are beautiful, quiet, with Ligres and Triopetra 10-20 min drive. Be aware though that you need to drive everywhere and the roads are often narrow and winding.

    Alejandro2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Artemis House, what a lovely place! The house is cozy, very clean and very well equipped. The top is certainly the terrace, from wich you can enjoy an amazing view of the Lybian sea. We were really fine, like at home!

    Giuseppe2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Artemis traditional house in Kerames is really fantastic with a great outdoor area - splendid views of the coast and the local beaches. Plenty of room and very comfortable house. It is also very near both local mini markets and the parking area is easy access and lead to the road out to Spili, Ligres and Triopetra.

  • We had a lovely stay in this apartment. Very well located, super clean and the interior is even better than in the photos. One point worth mentioning is that there are antennas and water tanks on the roof in front of the balcolny unlike on the photos, which must have been taken prior to these installations. The view is still breathtaking and we would go back anytime it is so quiet and beautiful. We would recommend to anyone!!

    Françoise2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent place to stay. It is extremely quiet and the house is beautifully equipped. We loved our stay there.

  • Great and very beautiful house with two bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen, large outside area for sitting in the sun all day long... Situated in a very quite area of Crete we had a super relaxed time in the house. Beach is about a seven minute drive away, the next mini market is about 5 min away if you go by car. Very beautiful area, we would definitely come again. Thank you!

    Mathias2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and clean apartment with great view and super quiet surroundings! Local tavernas and mini market close by.

    Patrick2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Stelios's place is in the mountains and you will definitely need a robust car, perhaps a 4 x 4. Villa is exactly as described and the surroundings very peaceful. The views of the mountains and sea were stunning with local amenities close by (have to use the car). We wold definitely recommend Stelios's place.

    Shila2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice authentic house in an idyllic setting. We appreciated the welcome touches. Dream beaches nearby (Priveli and especially Ligres for those who prefer calm). Do not forget to see the waterfalls in Ligres. We thank Stelios who helped us a lot on our arrival.

    Marou2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Stelios is a wonderful host, he organized everything and helped a lot everytime we had a request. (We asked for a kitchen knife and an umbrella and it was there the next day). There were greek products like fruits, oil, wine and honey as a welcome gift in our apartment, which was a lovely surprise! The apartment is in the middle of nowhere in the mountains, which is absolutely amazing. You have a great view on the ocean and by car you can reach beautiful beaches in 10-20 minutes. In a small village nearby (5 minutes drive), there is a mini marked where you can buy everything you need.

    Bernhard2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time! beautiful apartment with panoramic terrace. Maria and her family were so kind and hospitable. They left us small treats (fruits, wine, honey) and even brought some toys for the kids. The place is suitable for children, very clean and has a large accessorized kitchen which we enjoyed. If you are looking for a quiet secluded area (like we did) it is a good location- next to Ligres and Triopetra.

  • Stelios was super helpful, flexible and accommodating to our needs during and beyond our stay and very generous with Oranges and olive oil from his farm, We moved from Afrodites (perfect for a shorter visit in winter) to Villa Maria for more space and a home like feel during our month long stay... Beautiful space with a fire, our favourite... it was a treat to love and care for Sifi a resident and very sweet and loving black girl cat... we visited in February and enjoyed the peacefulness of the winter season, we loved just how remote yet close to the beach we were... we had a few weather related tech issues yet perhaps a blessing in disguise... Overall a real gem in a magical spot on a beautiful island with a lovely host! 🙏🏼✨

  • What a place! Stelios has been very helpful and friendly all the time, he gave us perfect indications to arrive and let us enjoy his house that is utmost clean, nice and perfect for a week of holiday. Triopetra has basically nothing a part from a long beautiful beach, 3 tavernas on the beach and that's is. The closest services (minimarket, pharmacy..) are about 20/30mins far, but that can be also positive if you're looking for a very quiet place. Overall recommended !

    Triopetra, Greece

    Great for walkers and animal lovers, this accommodation is part of a former "Kafenion", situated in the heart of a traditional Cretan village in the hills. Nearby is the pretty and bustling town of Spili, with its tavernas, shops, bank and post office. Prices from €25 (winter) to €35, including a basic breakfast. Loving dogs is essential, if you wish to stay here, as I usually foster several puppies. Having a car is also necessary.
    The accommodation offers one bedroom with one double and one single bed, a sitting room below, which can also sleep 2 people, if required and a bathroom. There is a further double room, with separate access, for a larger group. All beds have memory foam toppers and plenty of pillows. There is a convection oven/microwave, a fridge and a kettle and we offer a wide assortment of teas. Note: there is NO kitchen! We provide a basic breakfast of tea, coffee, yogurt, honey and cereal, which is included in the price of the room. There is a Kafenion/taverna in the village, which serves delicious food! The TV has a built in DVD player and DVDs are available to borrow during your stay. There is seating available outside on three terraces.
    Mourné is situated in a very lush and green valley and is particularly beautiful in the spring, because of the flowers. It is a popular area with walkers. The nearest beach, Ligres, is 20 minutes away and Rethymno, which is a beautiful Venetian harbour town, is only 25 minutes away.

Not to mention the company; little fluffy balls of fur will keep you company throughout the day. Gina, thank you again for having us; you are a lovely person with amazing home.

  • Gina's house and Gina herself are wonderful. We felt like we are at home from the very first moment we arrived. The apartment is cosy, clean and the bed is wonderful. Next to the house is a small café with delicious Cretan food. Above that, the cats and dogs are the cutest. And to see how Gina takes care of them is heartwarming. We would definitely stay there again!

  • The house of Eleni and Nikos is about 25 minutes from Rethymnon, 20 minutes to Plakias beach (also nudist) and 6 minutes from Spili. Next to the house is a cheese shop with many delicious products including coffee. You can park on the property. Eleni and Nikos welcomed us warmly. Their hospitality exceeded our expectations. As a welcome we received a fruit and vegetable basket as well as the wine from our own production. We hope to meet in the future to drink the delicious wine together. The apartment is well equipped. The guests like us, who like to cook, we would definitely recommend the barbecue. In any case, the house is recommended.

    Agnes2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Elena & Nikos' is a great place to be on the island, not too far away from busy Rythimno and close to the quiet beaches and gorges of the mid-south. The space is lovely, quiet and spacious, ideal get away for two. We didn't really want to eat out as fresh foods on island are so good and we were very comfortable there. Nikos and son met us and made us welcome, even helped us with a small car problem we had. Great hosting !

    Fred2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very beautiful, it has a barbeque and a perfect garden and a terrace with a view. It is also very accessible, clean and with all the necessities. Nikos and Eleni are excellent, friendly, very hospitable and helpful. We recommend!

    Χρηστος2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house is really great! They have a nice garden with lemon tree and a sunny roof deck. We had some trouble with the flight and arrived really late in the night but it was no problem for them and we could still check in! We were really thankful! They prepared as well some homemade wine, raki and olive oil and some fruits for us :) It's the perfect location in the middle of Crete and Nikos and Eleni are really great people! We would definitely recommend to stay there!

    Sofa2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • great location near the village of Spili. We had an amazing cycle over the hills to the village of Patsos to walk down the Gorge of San Antonio and then a walk up the hill of Kouroupa that had the most stunning views back to the South coast. Great value for money to discover the real Crete. Thanks for the hospitality and thoughtful touches of fruit and wine and Raki. We really enjoyed them.

    Alison2018-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay, in a clean and pleasant accommodation (barbecue terrace, garden ...) Elenis and Nikos are great hosts both attentive and discreet. Spili is a lovely little village to discover. We are really happy with our holiday in Crete and highly recommend this rental. J. Claude and Yamina.

    Jean Claude2018-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place. A beautiful, well-kept garden with flowers, vegetables and herbs and olives. In the shade in the olive grove. At night across the valley on the warm terrace. During the day sometimes from the beach. A friendly little village next door; The supermarket has very tasty sesame rings. Great tips from Nikos. You could spend weeks here. In addition, Nikos family makes fantastic raki, wine and oil. Fruit and a basic food were also there. And once the fuse went out, minutes later everything was fixed. Just great!

    Tanja2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and comfortable house with a lovely garden, in the middle of the countryside. Everything as seen in the pictures, the kitchen is fully equipped and everything worked well. Really confortable king size bed. Great outdoor BBQ which we used as well. Only thing that needs improvement is the bathroom, which smells due to plumbing issues and must be kept shut at all times.

    Danae2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in the cottage Secreto! The location of the house is great, surrounded by olive trees with no other tourists nearby : )! Finest beaches are very close and trips to the northern coast are possible (we visited Rethymnon and Chania). Communication with Penny was very good, her husband even brought us a bottle of self made olive oil. The terraces of the house were perfect and every evening we were lying on the comfortable sunbeds, looking in the star lit sky. The bedrooms are really nice and bright and the house was cleaned after 5 days! We enjoyed it very much and can highly recommend it!

    Katrin2019-07-17T00:00:00Z

    A stunning, newly renovated villa situated on the edge of a traditional Cretan village with breathtaking views. A protected area of outstanding beauty. The Sunday Times described it as " stepping back in time" 2 minute walk brings you to the village lanes where you will find 2 mini markets & a choice of family tavernas serving delicious home grown food. The beaches are a short 5-10 minute drive away, with tavernas famous for their freshly caught fish. Relax & experience this magical area!
    A light filled villa with truly spectacular sea & mountain views from every room and terrace. Watch the sun rise over the Paximathia Islands, and the mountains around you turn pink in the sunset. The house has many different outside areas offering sun or shade, to dine or just relax and gaze out to sea. Although on the edge of the village it’s only 2 minutes walk into Kerames centre, with its winding whitewashed lanes.
    Kerames is a very picturesque, traditional working village, where time has stood still. Explore the narrow, winding whitewashed lanes. Eat in one of the local family tavernas, using fresh local ingredients. There is a supermarket which provide everything for your holiday needs. A short drive away is the bigger town of Spili, where you will find a 24 hour health centre, banks etc.

    Unique Cretan on the River If you wish to write, paint, live...come to the fairytale old village of Kato Mixorouma, and stay in a stone-built cottage in a garden flooded with flowers and trees on the bank of the river. Mr Antonis, the owner, will offer true Cretan hospitality during your stay.
    The property contains two small cottages, approximately 50sq m each in a 1000 sq m lot. The house in this display has a small but practical kitchen, a bedroom, a bathroom and a living room. The bedroom is furnished with a double bed and the living room has a sof-double bed and can accommodate 3-4 people.
    . The History of Kato Mixorouma The village is in a very calm place surrounded by mountains right on the river. It is in the old historical village of Kato Mixorouma where very few people currently live, as the new village is built about 200-300 meters away. The village has old houses of traditional cretan architecture, which we are now in the process of trying to get the state to fund in order to preserve and define it as a traditional village. Here is a little bit of history….The settlement of Kato Mixorouma is referenced in the first known recording of settlements in Crete by Fr.Barozzi in 1577 and in the Basilicata in 1630. It is also referenced in the Turkish census in 1659 and in the Egyptian census in 1834. The Kato Mixorouma is built on the north bank of the river which starts in Spili,
  • Fairytale location and hospitable village. The response was immediate to what we needed.

  • Above perfection! the house is perfectly located for visiting the beaches and Rethymno! moreover, being surrounded by greenery and tranquility was a plus!. it is provided with all the services: fridge, microwave, oven, coffee machine, kettle .. really nice living room! to get there there is a small path and stone steps but very easy. Communication and the hospitality at the Taverna Petrokofino was very appreciated! We enjoyed everything!!

    Teresa2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • They made a small house in a wonderful place with a beautiful garden. The river gives the site cool and flows just below the stylish and shaded terrace. The host of Ioanis is great, in the village has a tavern with excellent food. If you enjoy exploring places untouched by tourism, we highly recommend. Do not expect luxury, the cottage is simply furnished, but everything you need here. South Beaches are a 20-minute drive away.

    Marie2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recomend this apartaments for those who wants to see Creta in diferent way.

    Το σπίτι της Βάσως είναι ένα καινούργιο και σύγχρονο σπίτι στο παραδοσιακό χωριό Κεραμέ στο Νότιο Ρέθυμνο.. Στο σπίτι που δημιουργήσαμε με πολλή αγάπη και μεράκι για εσάς θα μπορέσετε να ζήσετε την απόλυτη θεά στο Λιβυκό Πέλαγος μια θεά που σας ταξιδεύει και σας χαλαρώνει , αλλά και την βραβευμένη, παραμυθένια θάλασσα μας με τα καταγάλανα νερά , που απέχει μόλις 5 λεπτά με το αυτοκίνητο από το σπίτι....
    Ένα διαμέρισμα 85 τ.μ. 1ου ορόφου στο τέλος του χωριού Κεραμε. Με ένα υπνοδωμάτιο το οποίο περιέχει ένα διπλό κρεβάτι, κλιματιστικό, ντουλάπα, κομοδίνα κ έπιπλο με καθρέπτη κ ένα πιο μικρό υπνοδωμάτιο με δυο μονά κρεβάτια τα οποία γίνονται ένα υπέρδιπλο ,κομοδίνα , κλιματιστικό κ ένα έπιπλο με καθρέπτη. ** τα κρεβάτια είναι άριστης ποιότητας για έναν άνετο κ ξεκούραστο ύπνο .. Στο καθιστικό το οποίο έχει ένα κλιματιστικό , τηλεόραση και έναν μεγάλο καναπέ που γίνεται διπλό κρεβάτι μπορείτε να απολαύσετε τον καφέ σας ή το κρασί σας μπροστά στην μεγάλη τζαμαρία με την υπέροχη θεά…. Τέλος υπάρχει κουζίνα με όλες τις ανέσεις για να φτιάξετε το δείπνο σας και μια τραπεζαρία για να το απολαύσετε. ** υπάρχουν 2 mini market στο χωριό ένα στην αρχή του χωριού και ένα μέσα στο χωριό διπλά στην πλατεία.
    Sitting below the bare rocky mountainside in an oasis of greenery, surrounded by olive groves and patches of pasture, the village itself is no more than a tiny tangle of streets winding between whitewashed houses leading to the village square and an oversized Church with some lovely frescoes. A couple of cafenions offer authentic watering holes and pleasant spots to pass the time of day with the locals. In essence time has stood still and it can be very pleasant to be part of that for a short time.  A local family have recently opened a fairly well-stocked mini market where fresh bread, fruits & veg & most supplies can be found, which saves the trek back to Spili. Unless you need an ATM, which is in Spili.
  • We really enjoyed staying at Vaso. The apartment is furnished and equipped with great attention to detail and small attention. On the first evening we also discovered the nearby Ligres beach, from where you can enjoy the sunset. As a little tip for everyone who is lucky enough to stay with Vaso in the future. Thank you for everything and see you next time!

    Anke2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very clean and feels like a secret spot on the south-coast. The family is so welcoming and always there if you need any help. The view is spectacular and you can enjoy it during every meal! Shopping for food is no problem in the village and some of the nicest beaches are very close by. We can absolutely recommend this place and are happy to come back one day!

  • If I could give Vaso's House and hospitality 10 stars out of 5, I would. Go to Crete and stay here in Kerames - it is a truly lovely place. Vaso was so kind - hanging around to meet us personally, even though we were delayed due to a late flight. The personal, kind touches like homegrown olive oil and oregano were lovely. There was raki and a bottle of wine in the fridge. The house had fantastic amenities including a functional kitchen and laundry. You're a short drive from beautiful beaches and tavernas. I wholeheartedly recommend this home away from home to everyone.

    Ange2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • this is an incredible place, the view is beautiful, the house is immaculate and comfortable. vaso is a perfect host. i highly recommend this place if you want to be on the southern coast.

    Nick2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • If you know the area between Agios Paulos and Preveli, Vasos House is highly recommended for your vacation. If you want to explore this area for the first time, you cannot have a better destination. Vaso`s house provides every luxury you would desire - and a little more at your arrival. Everything is POLI KALA!

    Horst J.2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • The house is top! We can only recommend it to anyone. Great decor, modern style. Prepayment - nothing is missing here. Like in your own home. Everything was thought of. The place itself is only starting point for trips to the beautiful beaches and places on the south coast. We really want to come back if Vaso's house is free at all! Thanks for a real holiday & feel-good days.

    Gabriele2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Vaso's house is just amazingly set in an authentic Greek village looking over the ocean from all rooms. The village a mini market, where you will find also some nice local products. We absolutely enjoyed every second we spent in the house - we really never experienced such a very well equiped kitchen - everything was spotless, very well mentained or in generel looking brand-new. The apartment is super stylish, the beds are highly comfortable and you will find everything you need just like in a high class hotel. Our host Vaso is a very friendly young lady who surprised us with some products from her own production such as the best olive oil we every had, home-made honey or the most tasteful oregano ever. The communication was excellent, Vaso even helped us finding a dentist in Rethymno, and as the greastest surprise she also brought us a very tasty Greek dinner one day in person. All in all a outstanding stay, we give our highest recommendations, it was indeed hard to leave.

A 2chilometri si trova anche l'affascinante spiaggia Skinaria, con dei pesci esotici che attragono tanti fanatici di subacqua, prorpio per esplorare il fondo marino esotico di Skinaria. Seguono le spiaggie, Amoudi, Amoudaki (nudisti),Damnoni, Plakias, Souda, Rodakino. La casa si trova ai piedi del villaggio Asomatos (200m), e 400m dal villaggio Leukogia dove si trova un grande supermerkato per la spesa quotidiana. Ma ce anche la disponibilita di avere la spesa a casa attraverso un ventitore che puo' passare quotidianamente da casa , con il suo furgoncino, per lasciarti prodotti tipici locali freschissimi ed di alta qualita' Inoltre avrai la possibilita di comprare tanti prodotti freschi ed ecologici dai nostri vicini, come uova fresche e frutta. Aproposito, non devi mancare di visitare "il giardino dell Fragole", a 150m, una cantina bellissima dove puoi assaggiare succhi di frutta freschissimi, di fragole o di banane, ed altro. Se invece sei un buongustaio non devi mancare di cenare ai villaggi Mariu, e Mithiou, con una vista da mancare il fiatto. Se invece ami gli sport e l'avventura, puoi provare con climbing, equitazione, oppure safari con il Safari fuori strada e la sua guida.
    Isolated house with private property but not far away from the shoping center and the access of the river. Only one neighbour nearby.
  • The place is super beautiful, surrounded by greenery, palm trees and olive trees. It is very quiet there and the power supply with low voltage makes a holiday without TV or radio again different and worth experiencing! (The possibility for electricity conversion exists). By car you can make wonderful trips to beaches or places with restaurants and bars, if you want to be something among people. The tips from Angela are wonderful and offer absolutely different possibilities for relaxation. The cats on site were an integral part of us, completing the very intimate ambience!

  • Super Location, nice hostess We spent 7 days in the house of Angel and would go there again. From the first minute, you are welcome in the cottage. Unfortunately, we did not meet Angel personally, but we contacted WhatsApp almost every day. The greeting was given by a friend. Super nice and polite. Thanks a lot to Angel's hard-working help. The cottage was tidy and clean, as you would expect, and complied with the descriptions at Airbnb. Angel gave many helpful hints to get to know Plakias fast and well. Good restaurant tips and a special beach for every occasion. Super good tips to spend his birthday in Crete. The environment around the cottage offers enough to see and do to spend some holidays there. The cat of Angel is very nice and well behaved. You could also leave food without her having gone to it. The return of the house was easy and uncomplicated. We have simply gone for an unforgettable vacation in an unforgettable setting and are looking forward to spending our vacation time there again. A big thank you to Angel! Summary: Highly recommended! Super Location, nice hostess We spent 7 days in the Angel and would go back immediately. From the first minute, you are welcome in the cottage.

  • This house is a great place to stay. The house itself is small and some might find it basic, but we loved that about it. It has an off the beaten track feel but also has a really good position on the south coast near some incredible beaches and places to eat. Angel is a fantastic host, she is very warm, friendly and attentive, she even took the time to show us around the area, giving us invaluable knowledge for our stay and every restaurant or beach she pointed us towards were really excellent. So if you are looking for a quite, beautiful place to stay in the countryside surrounded by wonderful scenery this is a very special place. I would highly recommend staying here.

  • TO DIE FOR. Eleni's place was absolutely incredible. We visited in October and the weather was amazing -- not too hot but the water was perfect for swimming. Eleni's house is the last one on the road to Preveli Beach (a idyllic spot in a hidden cove with a palm forest and rocky beach 2 km further down the road) so from the garden you cannot see another house and feel as if the entire view is yours alone. The view is nothing but beautiful sea and blue sky. The garden has plumeria, pomegranates, roses, and citrus trees. There is a path down to the beach in front of the cottage that we had all to ourselves the entire time. The kitchen was well-stocked and Eleni even met us in the next village and guided us to the cottage since we arrived at night. The drive there was spectacular! Cliff views and olive groves galore! My favorite part was drinking Cretan wine in the garden and watching the sun set in front of the cottage over the sea. My son's favorite part was playing on our private beach with family of adorable kittens. Eleni brought us delicious homemade Greek pastries on our last day. It could not have been more perfect, and we'll be dreaming about our stay there for years.

    Erin2018-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • The rental of Eleni is charming and very pleasant for holidays in Crete in a wild part of the island. The view of the sea and the sound of the waves are very pleasant from morning to night. The house is well equipped the garden is nice and in May we could take all our meals outside to enjoy the beautiful view. Eleni is very responsive and very welcoming. We arrived May 1 (holiday in Greece) and she offered to buy for us some products (bread butter and coffee wine) for our arrival. The rental is very clean and a person come clean and change the sheets and towels every week. A cottage that we recommend for people who want to discover the wild side of Crete.

    Regis2018-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Eleni has a perfectly located cottage. We loved listening to the Libyan Sea and enjoyed the scenic beauty. We can't wait to come back again

    Thomas2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very beautiful, very clean and spacious. It is located in a strategic position for the major points of interest and is equipped with everything necessary. Marili was very kind and helpful, leaving us also water and grapes from her lands. Great value for money! Recommended!

    Giulia2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We liked staying at Marils place. She was very velcomming and friendly. The apartment was very clean, and had a fully equipt kitchen, and comfortable sofas in the livingroom and also a nice terrace. We had rentet a car, and could park it behind the house, that was wery nice. Maril had left us a watermelon and olives in the fridge which was very delisious. And also the traditional greek drink Raki We would highly recommend other travellers to stay here.

    Morten2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Marili's apartment is perfectly clean and very well equipped. Marili is an attentive, considerate and responsive host. She gives very good advice and is always available when needed. We highly recommend !!

    Amandine2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Marili's house we found it relatively quickly & at a very affordable price considering that this is a detached house very close to Rethymnon but also to the most beautiful beaches of the prefecture (Preveli, Triopetra, Damnoni ..). It is a cozy house, spotlessly decorated in a romantic setting with a quiet and cozy outside atmosphere. Marilly was helpful and helpful, but her family was eager to help. We were welcomed with an awesome pumpkin pie and raki .... in a nutshell ... great atmosphere .... great hospitality ....

    Kalliopi2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Really quiet, peaceful spot... well located, close to rivers and gorges where to go on nice walks and only 20 min drive to really nice beaches. Marili was super kind and made sure I had a great experience at her place.

  • Marili is a very good and friendly host, the flat is super clean and everything is provided. There is a big terrace with table, where it's very comfortable to spend some time in the evenings or mornings. Although it's only a small village, there are some tavernas close by, where they serve good traditional greek food.

  • Have a nice stay at Brigitte's place. Attention the address indicated on airbnb is not the good one. The nearest grocery store is 25 minutes away by car so plan ahead. Lack of equipment for the morning breakfast. If you want a quiet place, isolated far from the city, this is what you need.

    Marine2019-08-27T00:00:00Z

    Maria2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was fantastic! We really liked everything .. the house itself, the room, the view. The house is very well maintained and very nice. The location was exciting (the narrow roads over the mountains and through the valleys, great scenery, coasts and coves). We always ate very well in Agia Galini, Matala and Pavlos. Perfect for relaxing and decelerating.

  • Very nice view of the mountains and the sea from the terrace and with the glass doors of the apartment you feel immersed in nature. At the end of November, we were the only ones to walk around Préveli Beach, as well as all the surrounding beaches. If you like plants, I recommend Maravel Garden in Spili. Thank you stephanos for all the directions!

    Renaud2019-11-29T00:00:00Z

    Tomas2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed out short stay at Stephano's Villa!!! It was a great place to be based to travel around the some of the local beaches, many to choose from. He made some great maps of the area and had a nice briefing at the beginning about tips for places to see and visit. We ended up going to a few of his recommendations and loved them. One of the Dragon Cafe (close to correct name) with the "sleeping dargon" rock formation. Great area to visit. I loved that. Also another taverna with the stone villas for dinner, which was really great. The villa itself was nice and we really enjoyed it. There was bread and OJ in the fridge, which was lonely touch. A beautiful view and the sounds of birds and sheep in the far distance was great with a cup of coffee in the morning. Great stay, great location, great host!

    Kaie2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic place to stay. Do not miss this opportunity. It is situated close to several beaches all within 20 minutes drive. Stefanos helpfully gives you laminated maps of their locations .. far more reliable than Google Maps navigation. The apartment is a pleasure to stay in and we wish we stayed longer than our 2 days ..the view from the terrace over the sea is amazing.

    Paul2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and cute furnished apartment. Everything was very clean and the apartment was equipped with the most important. The view from the terrace is a dream, you have a beautiful view of the sea and in the small village it is really quiet. We would like to come again !! Thanks also to Stefanos for all the beach / town tips.

    Corinna2019-09-22T00:00:00Z

  • Our stay at Domus Polymnia was something to remember! The room was super stylish with a retro feeling. Everything was made from stone, even the bed! It’s not very spacious so better be well organized but it’s beautiful and practical. It’s located 2 minutes (but uphill) walking distance from the main square of Spili. Stefanos is a nice guy, very polite and will give you tips for nearby beaches and places to visit. He is a pure example of the famous Cretan hospitality! Thank you Stefanos!

    Emma2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • This was not our first time with Tina and Takis. Their hospitality convinced us again and again, so we certainly not the last time a holiday booked with them. The apartment is lovingly furnished. It feels very familiar but has its own private affair. We really enjoyed the Cretan evenings on the terrace of the apartment and the seating area reserved for the suite below in the garden. During the day, many beautiful beaches in the surrounding area and for exploring the beautiful island of Crete Tina always has a great tip. We are looking forward to the next vacation in the Wildgarten.

    Udo2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very well and Tina is a very warm and friendly hostess. We got great tips for things to do and hikes in the area and Tina called us the best tavernas ;-). There are beautiful beaches in the immediate vicinity, which can be reached in 10 minutes by car. The wild garden at the house invites you to linger or yoga ;-) and it smells great fresh herbs. From the terrace you have a beautiful view of the mountains and the tranquility and the harmony with nature was just wonderful. The apartment is very nicely furnished and has everything you need. There is a very comfortable huge bed in which we slept very well. We really enjoyed the days at Tina and will definitely be back!

    Claudia2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Nice location of the apartment in a great natural garden. Very quiet and comfortably furnished. Felt right at home. Tina is a great host who lovingly took care of us.

    Tomer2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment and the garden are absolutely gorgeous. We immediately felt at home and relaxed. In the really huge bed it sleeps as usual only in your own and in the morning you can still hear the sound of the wind blowing through the plants in the garden, to have breakfast on the beautiful balcony or to do yoga. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, with many lovely details and far exceeds what can be guessed on the internet. Takis and Tina are great hosts and lovely people. You feel welcome. They have called us the best places for excursions, for beaches and taverns in the area and were in between always available and with further tips or explanations at hand. We will definitely come back!

  • We had a beautiful holiday in Villa Thalassa. The building is brand new and modern, the nicer in the area. You can find everything you need. Our cozy room has a large terrace with two comfortable sun lounger, it's beautiful to stay there after dinner reading a book in the silence. The decor is stylish, bed and wardrobe are large. Bathroom is large and modern, with a comfy design shower. Everything is studied in detail. Maka, the lady who works in Villa Thalassa is always there and is very kind. If you are looking for peace and relax, this is the right place.

  • Our apartment was as expected u described a dream with many good detail solutions for shelves u many outlets everywhere. Super bed and mattress. Mega view of the wide sea with dream Sunset u Megaruhe.Man only heard the breeze of the wind otherwise nothing. Absolute recommendation. The beach is very long and little tourism in our time! THANK YOU BRIGITTE MAKE NEXT SO

  • This is a great option for lodging in the area. The building feels new and stylish. Note that the room is quite small. There was just enough room for my husband and I to have each of our one piece of luggage out. The patio is nice and has an amazing view of the church on the hill to the left and the ocean and three rocks to the right. However, there is no privacy between the patio and the one next door, so if the neighbors were already using it we felt like we were encroaching on them if we went out there. The location was good for our day trips to Matala and Triopetra beach. We accidentally stumbled upon the Hill of Calm hotel when we meant to go to Pavlos' and they ended up preparing us a very special dinner. Pavlos' was good for lunch the next day, too!

    MacKenzie2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable accommodation, very clean. The bathroom is spacious. High end housing. Near a small tavern and the beach.

    Gwendoline2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • High quality service at Brigitte in an environment between sea and mountains. Perfect !

    Patrick2018-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very well located overlooking the sea and in a very quiet environment that will allow even the lucky ones like us to observe the stars and the Milky Way to the naked eye! We had a really good stay in this beautiful apartment with impeccable design.

The villa offers all of the comforts of a village location including mini-markets and tavernas within a few minutes' walk, as well as all the privacy of being at the edge of the village. The star of the villa is without a doubt the 25 square meter rooftop patio with perhaps the most beautiful and unobstructed sea views on Crete!

    The house lies on the edge of a traditional village known as Kerames, population 100. This sleepy village has remained practically unchanged for decades, if not centuries. A large part of its residents are elderly, still washing their clothes by hand, walk slowly, pick and grow their own food and go to church on Sundays. An authentic Cretan experience that seems to be so rare these days… Most of the narrow winding streets are inaccessible by car. There is a silence, relaxation and authenticity in this little village – it is a place we can simply be and enjoy, without effort.
  • It is a very attractive accommodation, especially the view over the countryside is phenomenal. It is a very quiet place and we felt very well. In the village there is a well-stocked grocery store, so we were supplied for our daily needs. The Gastgeben are very helpful and obliging. The key pickup on the ground is laying smoothly.

    Stefanie2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 15 wonderful days in this beautiful house which is located at the southern edge of the small village Kerames. In front of the house you will find just nature and a fantastic sea view - nothing else...! It is very quiet - so if you would like to go shopping or joining the night life, go to another place - and so it guarantees a very relaxing and chilly holiday. The house is well equipped with even more than you need; we especially liked the huge fancy shower on the groundfloor. We were amazed at the privacy the house offers :-) All in all it was such a lovely holiday here that we think about coming back if we may... The small supermarket in Kerames is well equipped, especially fruits and vegetable were very fresh and nice at a reasonable price. The food and the setting in the local taverna were very enjoyable and entertaining!!! :-)

    Joachim2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Why did we rate our stay five star overall? The answer is pretty simple - there are no six or seven stars... We spent 6 days at Jivan`s place in Kerames and enjoyed every second. From the beginning (sending our request) to the end (checking out) everything was perfect. The house offers everything you need and the view from the upper terrace is absolutely stunning - we spend a lot of time just sitting there and enjoying it. Jivan and Paul gave us a lot of tips where to go and where to eat (don't miss Michalis and Kyriakos taverna, down at the beach..). If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing and authentic place with different beaches, small tavernas, hiking and other opportunities just a few minutes away - you have found it. We will be back - for sure. THANK YOU again, Jivan!

    Nils2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We usually do not comment exuberantly when giving judgements on airbnb, but in this particular case we have to, as we had an amazing time at Jivans stunning place. Jivan and her assissting friend Paul have been the perfect hosts. Very friendly, always helpful - we felt welcomed from the very beginning and have to thank both so much for making our stay so special and memorable. We also fell in love with the place, the view, the area and found at Jivans place exactly what we were looking for. It is afar from anything busy or hectic, lets you breathe easy and puts a permanent smile on your face. We could not have imagined a better place where to enjoy our stay on crete. We will surely come back sometime.

    Simon2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautiful, just like the pictures show. The village is very nice and you can find all you need (good taverna, minimarket...). There are very nice beaches nearby also and plenty other things to do. I would surely recommend. Jivan and Alf have also been very friendly and will help with anything you might need. Thank you so so much!

    Sarah2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • The view and the calm are really exceptional. The village and its inhabitants are very friendly. The little restaurant in the area is worth the trip. Note that the region is pretty windy but it has the advantage of not being too hot. The beaches of the area are uncrowded and the sea is beautiful. Really an experience to do!

    Fabian2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, what a fantastic house! Stayed at many places but the view from the patio is unparalleled. Indeed truly panoramic, the blue sea dotted with islands at daytime and the moon, stars and planets shifting position over the days in the night sky. Very much liked the layout of the house, both the cosy rooms inside and the different terraces outside. All in all a a very good atmosphere which ensured a laid back stay. The house was clean, the beds were good and all necessary utilieties were there (including airco's in both bed rooms, a washing machine, and yes...WiFi). Kerames is a small village (two tavernas and two small grocery stores, and - as we counted on the first day - at least twelve old men enjoying their evening at the small village square). This is a place is a go-to for a quiet and relaxed time. Still, there is enough to explore in the surroundings. We liked Ligres beach (not as busy as Plakas, nice taverna), walked the Imbros gorge (Samaria gorge may be a bit more challenging to reach from here, but possible), visited Chania and Phaistos, and did some scuba diving (Kalypso dive center). Very happy with the booking. Communication with Jivan was very quick and postive, and check in/out with Paul nice and relaxed. Certaily recommend!

    Rik2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • I really don't know from where to start. Actually at the end of the shortcut after Vatos Village you can see from the top of the mountain the Kerames region,a gem of Crete. The place, the Village,the beaches, the restaurants, this house and above all the people will make 100% your experience so unique.About the house all are written.So comfortable,extraordinary views even from the shower(you can see Gaudos island in the deep blue sea),this balcony(ooooooohhhhhh my God, get a telescope if you have),amazing kitchen, so Many places to sit on your own(we were a family of 4 with 2 girls 5 and 7 years old), 80 steps from the central square of the village(great and very cheap taverna for the morning Coffee but better on the night.),at the lowest point of the Village so you have the best views like you live in nature. Jivan is a great host, we just spoke on the phone but we felt how much she loves the place and Paul, the guy that welcome us is an easygoing person with good tips. Come and you will love the place. My advice, get close to the people and ask at the super market or the restaurants for their local products. Thank You Jivan.

But since there are so many beautiful beaches in the area, we did not mind much. Penny is very helpful and answers quickly and reliably with every request.

  • It is a very, very nice place. All the pictures on the listing are reflecting exactly how nice the house and the pool is. And the surrounding areas are very nice for hiking and swimming on unreliably nice breaches.

    Ole2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time at Villa Palm River. Such a beautiful place, stunning views and very private. Penny was quick to respond to all requests and left a nice bottle of local wine for us on night one... as a family of 5 I would thoroughly recommend her place with spacious rooms beautifully done.

    Paul2019-08-18T00:00:00Z

The House offers 3 bedrooms with super comfortable matraces and 2 bathrooms. Anything you might need for your stay is already there. Penny is very reliable and responses very quickly. Perfect beaches in accessible distance, e.g. Damnoni, Ammoudi, Plakias and Preveli. Good Tavernas in Myrthios and Plakias. You def need a car and you should know that Winds could be heavy in Summer which we Worth visiting!

    Petra2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Driving through a stunning gorge to reach 'Villa Palm River' nestled in the countryside, we found a beautiful place surrounded by olive trees and lovely views of the mountains. This villa is spacious, quiet, private and provides you with all you need for a very comfortable stay. Penny is super helpful and welcomed us with a bottle of wine and fresh kataifi from the bakery. There is a local supermarket a short drive away along with pretty beaches and taverna's if you don't want to cook / BBQ at the villa. Penny's very friendly father comes once a week to clean and refill the pool and is also happy to point out local places good to visit. This is like a home from home and we would definitey return to this idyllic spot, thank you Penny

  • This is one of those places where you feel like a superstar! When you wake up in the morning and you have 360 eipc view then you appreciate every penny you spent. Excellent place with super easy access to supermarket and restaurants, short drive away from Spili where you can find loads of restaurants, shops and bit of entertainment. Access to the sea by car or motorbike is a blast and epic drive via one of the canyons getting to Plakias. The building is so well insulated that you don't even need to use aircon and the temperature stays constantly pleasant regardless of cold night or very hot day. Modern great decor, fully equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms and great bedrooms with the view. Hosts are amazing as well and they make sure your stay is as pleasant as possible.

    Marcin2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great views in a beautiful house, in a quiet location. People barely noticed in the neighboring villa. Air conditioning is great! A car is necessary. We had a great stay.

    Yanick2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Anna Boutique Villas offers gorgeous accommodation in a lovely location; close to the beautiful south coast beaches and near the stunning mountain village of Spili. Highly recommend a stay here.

    Mahjabeen2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great house. Almost unique. This apartment of the entire object is the most private and beautiful. The house is now about 10 years old, but you notice it almost nothing, as properly cleaned. The plants are well maintained. A few insect screens are broken, the tub lock is broken, and the doors could be thicker in storm, but otherwise everything has been great. The kitchen is sufficient for 4 people, but not more, a pity for those who want to cook more. The best are the 5 terraces. And that one can look into an uninhabited valley, the stars are clearer at night. Thanks for the great house experience.

    Rajko2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Yiannis accommodation is just beautiful we loved the stay at home although it was too short we will come back without any worries and we will stay much longer everything was perfect everything is well thought out several views overlooking the mountain or on the sea it was very relaxing to highly recommend

    Tatiana2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • one of the best airbnbs i‘ve ever been to!

    Mathias2018-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in the modern, comfortable and tasteful villa. We loved the location, especially the breathtaking views of 360° from all the various terraces and many big windows over the green valley with the olive trees up to the snow covered mountains and along the rocky gorge down to the ocean. Yiannis rents two villas next to each other which differ in floor plan and composition. Since in the description shows pictures of both villas it is difficult to imagine which of the two you rent, but both are well worth! Eleni from the staff gave us a warmhearted welcome and offered daily service (rubbish, towels), we didn't meet Yiannis, but contact has been always fast and helpful. The situation on top of a steep hill leads in consequence to a long stair up to the house, but the staff offers help with carrying up the luggage. The house was nicely decorated with fresh Callas. A homemade tasty cake and Raki were offered for our use. There are very good beds with duvets, nice linen and towels. Various seating areas also inside, open fireplace, well equipped kitchen (no basic stocks). It has been early in the year, but we could sit outside sheltered from the winds for late breakfast. We even used the wonderful pool once, even if it was just freshly filled and still real cold! You can reach Plakias and Prevelli by car in about 20-25 min, Rethymnon in about 30 min, so very good location to explore the center of Crete! Thanks Yiannis!

    Kerstin2018-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • The house, part of a small set, enjoys exceptional views of the surrounding panorama: you can even see the sea We had a very good stay and Yiannis thank for his advice..
