  • It’s nice home with everything we need inside: 2 bedrooms and big living room with a very well equipped kitchen. Absolutely gorgeous garden with green grass, fruit trees, flowers and a lot of grapes. nice place for bbq, nice terrace. As for me this home is for 2 adults and 2 kids, for us (2 adults and one 2 y.old son) it was perfect. Only what can make a noise is a military airplanes and helicopters, not rather than 2 times a week and only in a daytime, but for as it was like a show: our kid like it very much. A little bit far from beaches of Tsoutsouras(Libyan sea) for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, but from Hersonissos and Malia it’s only 20 and 25 minutes. Nearest town Kastelli is absolutely lovely place because of people around you, there are shops, cafe, tavernas with simple but delicious food. for those who are tired from noise of big cities, this is a wonderful choice.

  • Very nice house where you feel quickly at home. The garden is beautiful and allows you to relax. The village is in the countryside (chicken and cock!). We ate at one of the tavernas, it was very good and the owners were very friendly. It was the neighbor who gave us the keys, but Pela was always available and even visited us to bring us a basket of local products! Go there without problem!

  • Pela's house is really great. The house seems to be totally new, it is very well furnished with love for details, everything is new and works well. The garden is as nice as on the pictures and there is plenty of great fruit trees in the garden. And behind the house there is lots of grapes, that was a positive surprise to us and made our stay feeling even more like being among locals. No other foreigners in this part. Totally in the nature with goats, sheep, and chicken around but a very quick walk to the centre of Kastelli with nice taverns, shops etc. (I would say 5 minutes walk more or less). We were welcomed by Pela's neighbour who is lovely person and also Pela was always available for help if we needed, e.g. in the beginning for organizing a baby bed etc. Everything went easy although we did really a very last minute booking but even though everything worked perfectly. When we arrived we found some home made wine bottles for us, later they gave us home made olive oil to take home and the neighbour brought us walnuts, fruits, etc. I can definatley recomend the house.

  • I stayed a Pela's for a week with my partner and two kids (6 and 4 yrs old). The plan was to rent a car and take day trips in the Heraklion and Lassithi areas. Pela's place was more than perfect for our purposes, not only providing a central yet quiet location but also a lovely place to relax when not out and about. The house is a tastefully decorated 2 bedroom with everything you need to be comfortable. Spacious bedrooms with closet space and air conditioning (so nice!), bathroom, large living room, fully equiped kitchen, a lovely balcony AND outside kitchen to relax outdoors. Beautiful green grass for the kids to play. There were also some toys / games (and sweets) there which the kids enjoyed and a trampoline as well! Pela also left us some local treats which were happily consumed :) I think for us what really made it great was that we never missed anything. The area was quiet, the place comfortable, so after a day of being out about with the kids you really could relax as if it was your home (but then witch some beautiful views and weather which we dont have at home). Also worth saying, Pela was always very responsive and provided us with good and accurate information when we needed it. She is friendly and inviting and made us feel at home. The neighbours are also very nice and very welcoming. We would absolutely recommend Pela's place to anyone. 10/10

  • We had a wonderful time! The house was beautiful and the scenery was amazing! The house is located in a small town, and it is so beautiful! Pela was so kind and she always asked us if we needed anything, we enjoyed our stay! Thank you so much!

  • Giwrgos house is a slice of real Cretan village life!! The house is cosy beautiful and very authentic and we loved the location and terrace. Giwrgos is the best host you can think of more like an instant friend. If you love food and cooking its a real wonderful exchange: he took us to his land and we cooked with his sister and mum: we were treated as family!!!! Such hospitality openness kindness and generosity makes this place a true gem. Highly recommended. Plus location is convenient: half an hour to beaches north and one hour max to the quiet beaches south. In the middle of beautiful countryside.

    Merijn2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! Perfect way to get away from the busy tourist areas and enjoy the beautiful scenery and culture of the island! The fresh bread and produce from Giwrgos’s farm were excellent! One of our best AirBnB experiences!

    Emily2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Gwirgos for the welcome and all the attention to us. We felt sincerely and warmly welcomed. Housing consistent with the description, Gwirgos thought of everything. The village surrounded by vineyards is quiet, we even heard an owl. We highly recommend!

    Lucie&Rémy2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Athypic accommodation, full of charm. Perfectly clean, and full of nice touches from our host. Frigidaire filled with good things. I recommend

    Nathalie2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • This has been the best Airbnb I have ever stayed at. The thoughtful touches were unexpected. Not only was this the most charming house I have ever had the most restful sleep at, the host made the experience. The daily bread, fresh vegetables and fruits from his organic garden and everything he could think we could need set his house apart from others I have stayed at. gives me a new standard to aspire to with my own Airbnb units!

    Rani2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very well in the cozy cottage, it is full of loving details and the fridge was filled with treats from Giwrgo's garden and in the morning there was delicious fresh bread, we loved it! We made a nice trip to the Lassithi plateau and a great beach trip to Kastri / Keratokambos, where after a few meters in the high season we were alone on a beautiful beach. We liked it a lot!

    Dagmar2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Giwrgos’ place is quite extraordinary! Not an usual experience! Staying in a small village up in the mountains was really amazing! And it’s less than an hour from Heraklion. Giwrgos treated us like family members providing some delicious welcome goodies (figs, tomatoees, honey, eggs...) and daily fresh bread. The house is equipped with everything you might need, it’s cosy, and warm. I highly recommed it!

    Maja2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Being hosted by Giwrgos was a great experience! The house is really cozy and comfortable, clean and perfectly equipped with all you need for your stay. If you have a car it’s a strategic place to visit a great part of Heraklion region. Giwrgos made us feel at home and even more! We absolutely recommend this place for anyone that looks for a quite place and doesn’t only look for Heraklion city life (which is not too far anyway).

  • Lovely place, with kind people around. It is a very nice, calm and cosy apartment. It has everything you may need while living there, and Emma and her husband are always there to help you with anything. Plus the magnificent views and nature around. But note closest supermarket is 8 km away, and closest ATM 20 km away, though there is a small grocery nearby (in 100 meters or so) with some necessities. I definitely want to revisit this place once again.

    Alexandr2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Do not hesitate to book in this rental, it is an exceptional apartment with exceptional equipment and a very warm welcome. The small snack below is very convenient for eating a snack. They are delicious. A quality price ratio out of the ordinary. Thanks again to Emma and Manos without whom the stay would not have been the same Philippe and Michèle

    Philippe2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • We lived here from September 27 to October 5, 2019. We made a great choice! We traveled almost the entire island, visited all the advertised beaches. But our opinion: Stalida is the best choice, because the village is small, there are fewer people than in Rethymnon and Chania. And the apartments are 20 minutes away by car along the scenic road. And you have excellent beaches (sandy), and accommodation without tourists and noisy neighbors. Stylish modern apartments with all amenities, friendly hosts, ready to solve any problems. And contemplating the olive grove and the stars in the evenings on the equipped roof is a great bonus! Within 1 minute walk there is a small pastry shop with coffee and sweets, and 5 minutes - the Gonies tavern with excellent cuisine! Everything written in previous reviews is true! Choose this place, you will not regret it!

    Елена2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 3 days at Emma’s place. Sparkling clean and well equiped. The location is amazing and is perfect to take a break in the nature. Emma was always available for us and that was pleasure to meet her and her husband.

    Yann2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • I would like to thank one more time Emma and her husband Manos for their hospitality and readiness to help anytime and make our stay as comfortable as possible.The apartment is large enough and cozy;also clean and well-equipped,so you’ll find everything you need.Snack-bar downstairs is pleasant bonus because you can have drinks and meal whenever you want.We are family with 3 years boy so playground downstairs is nice for kids time spending.On the roof there are sun beds and large terrace.Apartment is located in 20-30 mins from the nearest beach,so for sure you’ll need to rent any sort of transport.We enjoyed such a location,because it’s very beautiful and peaceful place with incredible sunsets!I strongly recommend to stay here if you prefer more calm,relaxed atmosphere👍🏻😍😉

    Serjio2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic apartment!! So many extras...super clean and Emma is wonderful!! Very highly recommended!

    Ann2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice apartment with neat design. Mountain views with terraces and rooftops with sun loungers for sunbathing or stargazing

    Jc2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • This was an incredibly spacious, modern and comfortable apartment with some of the friendliest and most helpful hosts I've ever known. The apartment is above a cafe (with great milkshakes) halfway between two close, pretty towns with excellent tavernas and atmosphere. Highly recommended - staying here really added an extra element of comfort to our trip.

    The Dominiki's Guest House is located in the village Kastelli of Heraklion Prefecture and its 15min from cosmopolitan Hersonissos and 30min from Heraklion airport. It is a stone made residence, built in the early 19th century and renovated without altering its architectural style and respecting the traditional Cretan architecture. The traditional wine press, the impressive arch, and the wooden upper floors will offer a journey back in time.
    The Dominiki's Guest House features a kitchen, two bedrooma with double beds. All the spaces were mostly decorated with the authentic restored furniture of grandmother Dominiki, giving a special warmth to the house. The garden will give a unique experience of relaxation and tranquility within the freshness and the aroma of the lemon and orange trees and Cretan herbs. While the barbeque and the wood oven will offer unique gastronomical flavors.
    Kastelli is a traditional village with all the necessary infrastructure such as health center, police station, as well as pharmacies, supermarkets, restaurants, coffee and retail shops. There are also archaeological and numerous religious sites. There is a common swimming pool and a gym where our guests can use with privileged prices.
  • Very nice place, quiet and relaxing, exactly what we were looking for. Super kind host sharing great tips and recos, not only while being guest, but also after whe hosted in other areas of Crete. Thank you!

    Carmen2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • We have enjoyed our stay in Georgia's house and greatly appreciated Minas' support throughout out entire stay. The village has everything you may want from grocery shops, bakeries, coffee shops and scenic views. Well situated for exploring the center part of the island (north and south) it is in driving distance from numerous beaches such as Stalis or Malia. For a family with children, but not only, this property is great value for money and I would highly recommend it.

    My place is close to family activities. Reasons I will like my space: the outside space. My room is suitable for couples, activities for one person and pets.
    The house is located 300 metres from a natural lake in an area surrounded by olive trees and Cretan nature. The location is perfect to relax and take a breath of fresh air. Thrapsano village has three mini markets and many traditional cafes along the road (known as the kafeneio ). And just a few kilometres from the village, there are other beautiful towns - one of which is the well known Arkalochori village where there are plenty of shops such as bakeries, bars and taverns where you can enjoy delicious original Cretan dishes.

    Thrapsano, Crete Region, Greece

    Traditional Cretan Stone House in the Center of Crete! The house is located in Lyttos, the first known city on Crete during the Minoan age! Here, you will have the chance to walk around the antiquities of the one of the most considerable cities in ancient Crete. Lyttos is a traditional village next to Kastelli, near to Hersonissos and it is on the foot of Lasithi Plateu that you can visit. This place is ideal for those who love nature and adventure. You can live here like native Cretans do!
    Our home is located in the village Lyttos or Lyctus. Lyttos was one of the oldest, most important and powerful cities of Crete, and a rival of Knossos, with which was often at war. It was built at the foot of Dikti, the sacred mountain of the Cretans. According to mythology, the parents of the goddess Rhea sent their daughter to give birth in Lyttos, to keep away from the wrath of Kronos. The city was named after its founder, Lyktos, a son of Lycaon. It was possibly the oldest Doric settlement of Crete, founded by Dorians from Sparta and local Minoans, circa 1000 BC; however, the conditions under which it was first established and how it managed to become such a powerful city are not yet known. It is believed that Lyktos was a colony of Sparta, and Lyktos locals were considered the most powerful and brave among Cretans. Nowadays, Lyttos is a really picturesque and quiet village, with many historical and byzantine elements, rich architecture, unique beauty and a great productions of delicious agricultural products. The house is an aythentic, traditional, old, Cretan, stone house which was fully renovated recently by us, faithfully following the style and the arrangement of the house of our ancestors. Τhis house also played a role during the 2nd World War, with a secret story that I can reveal to you personally!! In the house, you can find a lot of furniture and items, like the bed, some pots or knives etc, that old cretans used to have at their daily routine. Needless to say, you will have a real taste of the lives of our ancestors, traveling in the past! Also, there is a fireplace that you can use during the winter as a heater or just for company (as we use to say). In addition, you can have a barbeque there, bake chestnuts or potatoes (in the way that we can show you, as Cretans do) or boil tea or grass that we can collect together from the mountains. Furthermore, you may take part in various agricultural work according to the season,such as: collecting herbs or wild green that you can taste at home, collecting rare or known fruits, collecting olive oils and take part in the olive oil production process, etc. As a biochemist, I can take you around the area and show you some of our unique and powerfull against microbes, herbs and show you the proper way to cut them and boil them. By living there, you will have the unique opportunity to get in touch with the real side of Crete and feel like a native Cretan citizen, not like a tourist!
    Take your time to walk around the village and its narrow stone-paved streets. If you love nature, you can go beyond the village borders and you will find yourself in the nature, around the numerous olive trees and the Cretan Herbs, like tea or sage! You can also visit the natural fresh water spring that is located outside of Lyctus and enjoy the cool water. All the neighbours are very calm, warm and friendly. I can assure you that you will enjoy the hospitallity that Cretans have! Naturally, the place is quite peaceful and there is no concern about thieves.
  • We liked it very much.

    Frank2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house in the heart of a traditional Cretan village. Superb welcome from Grigoris and the inhabitants of the village! It is a soothing place, ideal for holidays! I recommend 100%

    Agathe2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at the stone house! It is rather an experience partly because of the history it has gone through and also because of the unique village it is situated in. Be prepared to stay at a place where not much seems to happen. If you are in the mood of tranquility and being close to nature instead of civilization this is the perfect place for you! Gregory is a very nice person and an attentive host. We definitely recommend the experience!

    Christina2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • It was such beautiful I f you want to relax then you should go on Grigoris homestay:) I had ah great time there. Thank you Grigoris :)

    Sandra2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Housing that allows us to live life with the rural people. We rented the house of Grigoris for ten days which allowed us to meet the inhabitants of the village who pampered us throughout our stay. Grigoris is very quick to answer our questions. The only problem we could not hear him play his music :)

    Andree2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house has a history story which, when you enter the area, unfolds from its own, tasteful space and warm and Grigoris willing to help anything to roll our trip as best we can.

    Πλουμίδης2019-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very heartwarming and traditional, the location is very beautiful and Grigoris is a great host, truly recommend this house if you are looking for a genuine traditional Cretan experience!

    Konstantina2019-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really good time at Grigoris‘ place. He gave us great tips and was very friendly and supportive. Also we fell in love with the beautiful little Lyttos and its supernice people. The house is very sweet and comfortable and since we went off season and it was a little cold we enjoyed the luxury of having a fireplace. It‘s recommandable to rent a car to get to places! And one shouldn‘t mind cute streetcats. Thank you, Grigoris, for a very beautiful holiday on which we could relax and calm down.

  • Stelio's appartement is an excellent accomodation and while there we felt just like being at home. The kitchen is new and really fully furnished with an amazing large refrigerator and any electrical appliance you might need. There were any basic food such as coffee, sugar, salt, spices, oil, breakfast bred, greek honey, etc. that Stelios offered to us as well as ham, cheese and bread especially bought for us which we found in the refrigerator for our arrival. The living room is spacious and bright and the sofa bed has a second mattress to host a fourth person. The furnishing are of good quality and include a smart TV. The double bed mattress is one of the most confortable we've slept in. Very good quality. Ample wardrobe. The bathroom is not very big but just perfect: the shower works greatly supplying high water pressure and has a fundamental hairflow window. The is also a new washing machine which we weren't aware of and that was of great advantage. There is also a spacious patio before the appartment entrance and a second garden entrance which leads to the private parking. Not to mention that everything inside (and outside) the house was perfectly clean. Potamies is a typical non-tourist Cretan village with a couple (maybe more ?) of rough tavernas runned by natives and serving natives. That is what we appreciated most of the places we went to. When we first arrived we got lost in the maze of alleys of Potamies though we finally learned how to get in and out. The location is 15 minutes approxim. to the nearest beaches of the area. The appartement is really good value for money. Hope to have the chance to stay again at Stelio's appartement.

  • Traveling enough we learned how to stand out !! A home ready to welcome its guests and its hosts, Stelios and Valia, welcoming and eager to help with any questions you may have. We immediately felt the Cretan warmth (... but not the summer heat, since the house with its garden is an oasis of coolness !!). Great equipment, functionality and cleanliness the first we noticed !! Ideal for a family !! Cretan hospitality in all its glory !! We will definitely be back !!! Stelios and Valia, THANK YOU !!! Telemachus-Argyro

  • We were ver happy with this place, Our favorite in Crete. We enjoyed getting a break from the busyness and spending time in the countryside. The house We stayed in was like an old farmhouse, very charming and totally up to date with all amenities. Manolis brought Us fresh bread, eggs and melon every morning and the kitchen was well stocked with pot and pans, dishes and condiments. I also was fortunate enough to get a spinal treatment from Manolis which I highly recommend. It was the real deal.

    Teodoro2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation in the middle of the olive grove. Manolis is an excellent host and the breakfast which he offers fresh in the morning is freshly picked and tastes like summer. Very clear recommendation!

    Sarah2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice apartment., In a small village. Very steep path to reach the accommodation. Manolis' wife welcomed us very well. The breakfast basket, placed on the table is a + To recommend.

    Sylvie2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • More than perfect! We loved our apartment and Manolis & Nopis extraordinary hospitality! We were even able to watch the moon and the Saturn with their telescope and had a great evening with nice food and wine. Definetely recommended! The apartment and terrace is just beautiful and peaceful and you can even get fresh bread and vegetables for breakfast 🙂☀️

    Sandra2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • There is a real fairy tale and you will find it in a small village named Apostoli, surrounded by beautiful olive, vegetable and vineyard plantations, organic production, where you will be greeted by a good host with a big smile. The house rented by Manolis exudes cleanliness, freshness and positive energy. At the dinner table you will find more than expected, including the products the host personally goes through and bring you fresh, every morning. Any recommendation, we will definitely be back!

    Sladjana2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was our nicest accommodation on our Kretatrip! Super clean, lovingly renovated and furnished, quiet (with the Cretan-typical cicadas "singing") and in addition a great hostess! Thanks a lot! We'll be back!

    Julia2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Housing equipped with taste, in peace with view on the fields of olive-trees. Warm welcome from Manolis and all his family who - in addition to offering fresh bread, eggs and vegetables in the morning - invited us to accompany them to the organized meal in the nearby village with an excellent atmosphere and a multitude of delicious food! A very good memory ... and a place to recommend

  • Certainly recommended for people who like to get away from it all and enjoy peace and a cozy environment. Very centrally located, handy to visit the area with a rental car! Manolis also gives great tips, but is certainly not intrusive. The breakfast basket that was waiting for us every morning was great! fresh, organic products every morning, delicious! We enjoyed it immensely!

    kim2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • My second visit and for me this is a home away from home. Such a warm welcome from Manolis and his family. Clean space, jacuzzi, fresh fruit and vegetables, eggs and fresh bread provided every morning for breakfast. Big thank you to Manolis and his family. Highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to visit Crete.

    Renny2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time staying at Manolis’ and Nopi’s place. We stayed in a charming stone studio that had a lot of very thoughtful touches and we received fresh eggs, bread and produce every morning! Manolis also entertained us by taking us to a neighboring village’s 100-year old taverna with live Greek music. He took us to see a friend’s raki distillery and on one memorable evening, Manolis took out his telescope and we all got to see Saturn, Jupiter and the moon! We truly experienced Cretan hospitality at its best!

    Jenny2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • The apartement was well equiped, and we really liked the authentic style. Breakfast was basic but quite good.

    Cori2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • We booked this nice apartment before our flight because it seemed so ideal. But our expectations were exceeded by far! The apartments are lovingly restored, very clean and equipped with everything you need. However, the whole thing is carried by a towering host in every respect. Manolis is the embodiment of Greek hospitality! He brought fresh fruit, vegetables, bread and eggs every day, entertained his international guests on many evenings and made very good excursion tips. Obviously there are many cosmopolitan guests, with whom we spent nice evenings. The complex is very quiet, has several retreats, right behind the house you can start a hike. All sights Central and Eastern Crete are within easy reach, also some beautiful beaches.

    Jan H.2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis’ and Nopi’s place is a rustic haven, nestled in the wild countryside of Crete. Nopi is very friendly, accommodating and informative. The farmhouse is unique, cosy and comfortable with a well equipped with a kitchen and dining area. The view of the plains and mountains were particularly stunning. We also really enjoyed the fresh organic vegetables, eggs and bread delivered to our door step ready for cooking. Would have loved to stay here for longer!

  • My stay at Alexandros was fantastic. The house is large, perfect for two couples of friends. The view from the room on the second floor is unforgettable with the fields of olive trees as far as the eye can see and the sea in the distance. Nothing better for a morning yoga session on the terrace of the second. The backyard, the swimming pool, the very comfortable deckchairs, the climate, all combine for a perfect well-being. In addition, the host picked us up at the airport to show us the way to the house and offered a stop at the supermarket so we could buy some supplies before settling down. A really appreciated attention. Many things to discover in the vicinity and the nearest beaches are about fifteen minutes away. I would return to spend my holidays in this house with great pleasure!

The location is very good, as you can reach everything from here (supermarket, attractions, beaches, airport and downtown / port of Iraklion). After our arrival at the airport, Alexandros welcomed us and was already able to help with the rental car service (a rental car is recommended)! Alexandros is a great host, who took care of everything and answered all the questions. We would book this accommodation again and again for a trip to Crete and can only recommend it!

  • Everything as in the description, we liked it very much. Rural calm and great for a relaxing vacation. Very friendly and reliable landlord. In the evening it was very cozy with the open fire. In this season, however, it is a bit cool in the house (natural stone) - in summer it must be very pleasant. We would go there again.

    Katja2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place with a stunning view on the countryside and great hosts. 30 Min from Heraklion airport and good road connection to the South. The appartment was perfectly equipped and we loved the breakfast with fresh organic bread and produce, as well as the evening under the stars on the roof top terasse.

    Ralf2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis was an excellent host with very good tips for local trips around the area. Wonderful expierence of country life in Crete in a traditional house, with a basket of food, produced on the farm, left outside the door each morning. We also had a guided farm tour showing us his organic crops. We had a lovely walk to the top of the hills on his farm. Will return again when back in Crete.

    Agnes2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis’s Airbnb stay was great! A nice quiet place in the mountains. Fresh food for breakfast everyday. He was very hospitable, took us out to a great local resto with live music and on our last evening hosted a little get together with wine and snacks.

    Melissa2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, serene, authentically Cretan experience. Manoli and his wife were incredible hosts. The fresh produce eggs and bread each morning were beautiful! The home itself is stunning. We loved our visit to Manoli’s organic farm. The kitchen had everything required to make magic with the gorgeous organic products. Thank you manoli for this great stay! This was a great place to stay to visit both northern and southern Crete!

    Laryn2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful and spacious home with wonderful hosts, breakfast supplies, brought daily by Manolis, are the freshest and most delicious produce, eggs and bread! The views are spectacular and the location is both central as far as being able to reach tourist sights and attractions, but also remote, surrounded by small villages, olive farms and vineyards.

    Polina2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Manolis's farm was amazing! We got to experience REAL life outside of the cities in a small village, which in itself was very interesting. The apartment itself was nice and clean and well-stocked, and it was fun to walk around the grounds. Breakfast was a highlight - each morning we woke up to a basket of fresh organic bread, eggs, fruit and veggies. Wow! So tasty. Manolis was so hospitable and made us feel like a part of the family. He invited us to join him for evening food and drinks, and we got to taste his own homemade wine and olive oil (which were amazing!) We're so glad we spent some time on the farm.

    Meg2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the farm! It was quaint and rustic, but with every convenience you could imagine. The home was so unique and the surrounding area was gorgeous. The wifi signal was strong! Manolis's hospitality was unbelievable. He took the time to point out places that we might want to visit on a map as well as spent time hanging out with us on the terrace chatting with us in the evening. It was great to get to know him a bit and to get to know more about Greek culture. Each morning we were greeted with a basket of fresh veggies, bread and eggs that we could use to make breakfast. Delicious! This was, by far, our favorite stop on our adventure in Greece.

  • Manolis and Nopi are lovely people and it was great to stay with them. Our stay was short but we enjoyed it a lot. In the morning we were greeted with fresh bread, eggs and tomatoes from their farm. It's a traditional stone house in a small village named Apostoli, which is about 30min from the airport and from Heronissos (you will need a car). The village has a very nice Taverna and we enjoyed the food and hospitality there a lot. There's also another village nearby, which has a bit more things going on, or as mentioned, the coast is not that far and from there it's easy to get everywhere. We would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in a traditional Cretan place. Drive carefully though, Cretan village roads are narrow, winding, full of parked cars, and some drivers have a death wish (also, to anyone who is non-Greek, it's worthwhile to read articles about Greek driving rules and conventions before driving a car there, it IS definitely different from your home country).

    Anatolij2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis’s cottage was the perfect place to stay and experience the traditional Cretan village life. it was clean and had everything I needed to get cozy and forget about regular life for a while. He helped guide me to wonderful sites in the area and offered additional services that made my trip unforgettable- like a garden tour, Spinalworks therapy and genuine hospitality. I can’t wait to return to crete to stay in this gem of an apartment.

    Maria2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a truly wonderful airbnb. Manolis is a perfect host, welcoming us to the village, delivering homegrown veggies and homemade bread every morning, and sharing many great recommendations for places to eat and to explore in the area. The place itself is charming and super clean, situated in a tiny alley in a very small village that's surrounded by farmland and mountains. Great place to relax and be away from the busier and more touristy areas of Crete. We hope to go back again.

  • If you want to spend the holidays in Crete away from the tourist crowds, is at Manolis accommodations just right. The apartment looks so cozy, clean and tidy as shown in the pictures and is equipped with everything you need. Manolis welcomed us warmly and suggested good tips for the Cretan holiday. Every morning he brings fresh food from his farm, a few minutes' walk away, for breakfast. We enjoyed our stay here and can warmly recommend the Airbnb !!

    Beatrix2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis' place is like living as the locals in the countryside. We even had a warm welcome and nice chat with his uncle who happened to lived next door! And Manolis brings daily fresh produce from their farm to enjoy!!

    Amy2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • The cotage is very nice, with stone walls, fresh and in a super nice town like a Greek postcard. It is perceived in the air of authentic cretence life, Manolis is very friendly and every morning leaves fresh bread and vegetables from the garden to cook your breakfast, everything is super rich. Highly recommended for a different and typical Greek experience.

    Diana Y Christian2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • The place is adorable with all the amenities you might need. Manolis is a gracious host and provides fresh organic vegetables from his garden along with fresh eggs and bread daily. He is kind and helpful- with excellent advice for areas to visit. On Friday’s there is a Mediterranean classic instrument music concert put on at a local town nearby. Manolis invited and drove us to this concert that is free and held under the stars by local music scholars who are absolutely amazing! It was one of my favorite experiences in Crete. This Airbnb is situated in a quaint village about 40min for Iraklion town. To travel hear one should definitely rent a car. The village is small and a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of life way up the mountain. On the way there you will pass acres of olive trees, fig trees and grape vines. This is a perfect clean oxygen - organic living escape in the mountains of Crete.

    The whole property
    It's an ideal place to use as your base and organise your excursions in Crete. Our home is at the entrance of the traditional quiet village ''Avdou" with it’s picturesque paths. It is 15' away from the clear beaches of Hersonissos and it's noisy night life. A Golf Course, a lake and a water park is nearby the house. Additionally, there are lot's of sights that you can marvel such as the Αposelemis lake, Roza's gorge, plateau of Lasithi, and a great number of Byzantine churches. It is 35 km away from the airport of Heraklion.
  • It is a very nice and clean house! It has everything you need (kitchen, equipment etc.). Really big garden; in the front there are fruit trees and a nice terrace, at the back there is a small pool and another terrace. Very quick communication. The village is small and quiet, it has some nice places to get a coffee. We recommend to rent a car if you want to stay here. We really enjoyed our stay here and recommend this place!

    Boris2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed to stay there ! Everything was perfect, the garden is the perfect place to relax. It’s a quiet place but closed to Beautiful area ! The host was very reactive and disponible! I recommend at 100%

    Louisa2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • This house is the perfect place if you want to enjoy some peace and quiet amidst the stunning Crete landscape. It was a great size for us (we were two couples) but could also have accommodated a family with kids very well. We loved that the house manages to combine retro charm with modern functionality. Eleni has equipped the house really well with everything that guests might need. The garden is well maintained and productive, and you can watch the sunset over the mountains from the rooftop terrace. Eleni, Dimitris and Manos were very friendly and hospitable, giving us a thorough tour of the house and providing some much appreciated extras like walnuts (from the walnut tree in the yard!), raki, local honey and eggs. It was so lovely to meet them! Avdou is a small town, but we enjoyed eating in the local taverna, and the small supermarket is well supplied. Avdou was also a good base for us to visit sights in the local region, like the Psychros Cave and Lasithi plains, and we had a great meal in the neighboring town of Mochos. Overall we had a fantastic stay at Eleni’s house and we thoroughly recommend it to other travelers.

    Claire2018-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent traditional spacious house with big outdoor space. The house had everything we needed. Big fully equipped kitchen and big bedrooms with comfy beds. It’s exactly as the photos and even better. The best thing is that it was really clean, spotless! We spent one night at the patio cooking at the barbecue and it was excellent. The house is at the entrance of a beautiful quiet village with picturesque paths which is a few kilometers from busy Hersonisos and Mália where you can go for swimming at the beach or go for clubbing. Also a few kilometers away is a lake, a golf course and a water park. Hosts are really helpful and answered every question we had before and during our stay. We really liked our stay at this house. Definitely recommended!!!

  • I don't want to sound over the top, but that's what you get here with Christine and George. We were blessed to be here at harvest time and were able to share in the experience of cutting the grapes from the vines and watching the process in the making. And George truly does make the best wine! Christine taught me to make Greek coffee and was always available when we needed any assistance. We were so generously invited to a meal at their home along with other family and friends and ate outside right by the vineyards. Their place is more than spacious and had all you'll need. We picked this place as we wanted to be away from anything touristy. And we really did live among the locals! Everyone is so kind and giving, it's just unbelievable. You can take bus and visit other locations as well. The buses are very nice and inexpensive. If you want a true cultural experience of Crete, this is it!

    Ellie & Matt2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Mrs. Christine and her husband were very generous and kind. They even brought us fruits from their local farm. The house is nice and clean in the center of Kastelli with a fully equipped kitchen. The village is relaxing and its residents are very welcoming. We had a great experience at Christine’s place.

    Agia Paraskevi, Greece

    Villa for rent in Crete, Situated in Kastelli, Heraklion, this amazing traditional three (3) bedroom Villa with supreme mountain views, fully furnished and with a swimming pool, is the perfect place for those who seek the utmost peace and tranquility and a quiet pace of life, combined with comfortable living in the amazing island of Crete!
    Kastelli is a small town in the countryside of the province of Pediada. It is distant 36 km from Heraklion and the route to follow is the one leaving from Heraklion and leading through Alikarnassos, VIPE, Peza, Aghies Paraskies and Kasteli. Another route is the one from Gouves to Smari or else from Chersonissos, turning off right from the National road between Heraklion and Chersonissos. This is a lovely ride of about 14 km. In the 1583 census, the village is mentioned as ¡Pediada proprio¢ with 543 inhabitants. The castle that gave its name to the village was located on the small hill where the school (Gymnasium) of Kasteli stands nowadays. Kasteli played a leading role as the county town of the province of Pediada. It was the commercial centre of that area and its important market attracted villagers from all around who came to sell their products. The market survives to this day and takes place every Wednesday along the town¢s main thoroughfare. Kasteli also played an important intellectual role in the area and its school provided education to all the children of the region, including the ones of the Lassithi plateau. Today Kasteli has over 2000 inhabitants and all the facilities and public services its residents and/or visitors may need. Many events are organized through the year by the municipality, the school and the cultural centre. In August a special festival, known as the Feast of Xenitemenou (ex-patriot feast) includes concerts, folklore, exhibitions and theatre plays. The last Sunday of the Orthodox Carnival is yet another occasion for a lively typical Cretan party. Excavations that took place behind the church of Agios Georgios revealed the existence of a Pre-Minoan settlement. Én Kastelli there are four churches with Byzantine murals, Afentis Christos, Agia Fotini, Agios Georgios Revithiotis and Agios Ionnis Romanito.
  • Wonderful location! We had a great time!

    Francis2018-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. I have stayed at many more Airbnb type places then my account indicates and this Villa is by far the most unique and beautiful place I have stayed at while outside of the United States. Everything worked as good or better then needed and it was more astounding then the beautiful pictures could show. The host was exceptional.... doing many unexpected and kind things to help us get to the property, get late night food/drink etc. It was a steal at the price we booked at and is the caliber of place I have seen at a much higher price on other occasions. If you're in the area don't pass it up.

    Καστέλλι Πεδιάδος, Greece

    This two-storey, small, quaint and very functional house in the center of the traditional village of Avdou is the perfect getaway for a real Cretan experience. It can sleep five people: there is a single bed on the ground floor along with a WC, a large double bed on the first floor with en suite bathroom, and another double bed on the open-plan second floor.
    The village itself is delightful, with small, renovated homes retaining the traditional style, cobblestone streets with signs commemorating out the history of each shop and an idyllic little square complete with a huge, shady plane tree. The people are super-friendly and, in the summer, the village can be quite lively. It’s located near the Lasithi mountain plateau, next to the Aposelemi Dam Lake, a 30-minute drive from the main city of Heraklion. To get there, you take the highway from Heraklion towards Agios Nikolaos. After 20 minutes (about 20 km), at the large junction, turn right toward Kastelli (You’ll see a big road sign) and then again right toward Lasithi Mountain Plateau. After 3 km you 'will see a junction, you continue left toward Lasithi Mountain Plateau (not toward Kasteli). Continue along the winding mountain road toward Lasithi Mountain Plateau and you will pass the lake on your left hand. Continue and you will find Avdou. On the right hand you will see a very big church. Opposite the church there is a street who leads (after 50 meters) to the center of the village, you see there a huge plane tree and on the left hand a Supermarket, you go right and, after 50 meters, you see the house... There are a variety of activities you can do here: hang-gliding from Mount Louloudaki, horse-riding at the nearby Odysseia Stables, hiking in the Rosa Gorge or around Aposelemi Lake. A visit to the impressive Agia Fotini Cave is a must, where you will be awed by the stalagmites and stalactites in the last room of the cave, which has been converted into a shrine to Saint Fotini. Delicious Cretan food at very reasonable prices can be had at Avdou’s tavernas, but also in the neighboring villages of Gonies (Taverna Gonies - Kostas), Potamies and Askoi. In the summer, the local cultural society organizes a wide range of events—concerts, dance performances and theatrical plays—in a spacious venue on the edge of the village. The fantastic Aquasplash water park is a short drive and the beautiful beaches of Hersonissos and Malia are 14 kilometers away.
    There is near the house (50m) a supermarket and a tavern opposite the house.
  • Elena and Nikos' house is a small wonder in a quiet and charming little town where you can get away from the crowds. It is renovated and decorated with love and good taste. The beds are comfortable and the nights are cool, so we have not used the air conditioning either. Right at the door there is a souvlaki bar with the very friendly owner. It was a pleasure for us to have a drink on the balcony at sunset and when the aroma of grilled meat began to rise, to go down for dinner some skewers at the door of the house. The friendly neighbors of the town, invited us to get together to spend the evening with peanuts and raki. Very grateful for the fantastic hospitality of Elena and Nikos. Our 7-year-old daughter will never forget the prettiest little house of her vacation in Crete.

    Dulce2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the end of July 2019 for 5 days in Elena's very tastefully renovated stone house. It was a special experience for us to live in the middle of an authentic Greek village, away from mass tourism. Barbecue and Rakibar directly opposite, supermarket just a few steps away and great destinations, directly accessible from the front door within walking distance: the Roza's Gorge and the cave church of St. Foteini. Thank you Elena and Nico! We would like to come again.

    Hubert2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • As described, a lovely little cottage in the heart of the village - very nice.

    George2019-07-02T00:00:00Z

    Antonia2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very beautiful and special house located at a authentic charming village. Elena was very helpful and fast with her responses and gave good tips about the area. We will be happy to come again.

  • Just a wonderful spot in a beautiful, small village. Very old, traditional stone cottage with everything you need for a great stay. More than you need, actually (we never used the TV and only cooked a few times). Hospitality of owners and everyone in the village was awesome! Thanks Elena for the pears from your trees and the raki. Enjoyed all the music and events the village sponsored throughout our stay...met many new friends and visited with many older friends as well. Our hike just outside of Avdou to the church/cave Agia Fotini was splendid, as was our short evening drive to Krasi to visit the oldest tree in Crete. Fantastic food at Taverna Krassopsychia in Krasi, Stelios taverna Xerokamares outside Potemies, Costas Taverna Gonies, and Manolis Taverna at the Velani Hotel, all a very short driving distance from the village. The very beautiful, ancient churches and monasteries everywhere were very special as we came for the August celebration of the Assumption of Mary in Avdou. We wished to stay longer of course, but will definitely come back another time! Maybe in November to visit the Many Kazanias!

    Vincent2018-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • The beautiful little house of Elena and Nikos was an incredibly beautiful experience for us and our two sons - we stayed for a week at home in Avdou, an intact village that is not mistaken for tourists, but has come across as incredibly hospitable. Unfortunately we did not get to know Elena and Nikos, they were on holiday, but had everything well organized and were always available for us and our little questions. We really enjoyed the fact that there was delicious souvlaki right outside the door and the best grilled bread we have ever eaten. The house is very nicely decorated, clean and great renovated. The decor is simple, but completely sufficient. We carry Avdou in our hearts and want to come back! Thank you also for bringing our little dog!

    Hanno2018-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • In Elena’s house we felt like we were living in Avdou for three days, instead of being just visitors. The house is cute and Avdou’s citizens were really nice to us. In daytime it’s really quiet but in the evening everybody is out on the streets. The bakery (leftside on the road to Gonies) where we learned Sirtaki dancing is definitely worth a visit! Last thing; make sure you bring cash money to the village.

    Στο πίσω μέρος του σπιτιού υπάρχει το Αμπέλι που έδωσε το όνομα του στο σπίτι μας. Είναι μια μοναδική ευκαιρία για τον επισκέπτη να δει ένα κρασάμπελο από κοντά κι αν το επιθυμεί να μάθει τα μυστικά του αμπελιού από τον ιδιοκτήτη.
    Το Αμπελάκι Πολυθέας βρίσκεται σε πολύ κεντρικό σημείο, το οποίο επιτρέπει την εξερεύνηση όλη της ανατολικής Κρήτης.

  • Very nice house in the foothills. Two bedrooms are separated by a shower room, isolated from each other. The kitchen has everything you need for a comfortable life. The garden has a barbecue and table, very cozy. It is a quiet place, at night you can hear dogs in the neighborhood, but the house has good windows and air conditioning. We really enjoyed. It's not very convenient with a child, since you have to go to the sea for about half an hour, but as an adult I would love to return here. Many thanks to the hosts for the hospitality.

  • Very nice well equipped garden, we enjoyed the hammock. The house is clean and conforms to the description. We enjoyed the touch of attention towards us with a basket of fruits and vegetables from the garden and other olive oils and raki ...

  • A wonderful house with a spacious and well-kept garden. Everything was very clean upon arrival and we had a very comfortable stay with 4 people. It was ideal to use the house as a base to explore different areas of Crete by car. We would always return to have dinner in the garden, making use of the barbecue or the kitchen inside the house. Pela was a fantastic host, making sure we had everything we needed. She also kindly brought us a basket with their own wine and olive oil, raki, and some other local products.

  • We liked the house very much! Pela thank you for everything and the neighbours, they are great people! we recommend this house for those who want to rest from city life.

  • The stay at Pela's place was absolutely amazing. We've been travelling with Airbnb for many years now, but this has been our best and nicest experience. Pela and her husband are very lovely, welcoming and attentive hosts. The house is very pretty, it's located in a very quiet area, but at the same time only 5 minutes away from the local town centre. Here you can find some fantastic small family run taverna's with some of the best meals we ate anywhere on the island, everybody is very friendly and welcoming. Car is a must to be able to make the most of the area, but if you do have one you will have some really beautiful drives around the countryside which is mostly surrounded by mountains.

Keep in mind that a traditional Cretan night is arranged every Wednesday at the central square of the village.
  • A wonderful cozy house in a pretty village. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The parents of the owner met us very early in the morning, greeted us with some local grapes and sweets. And were always available in case we needed something (although we didn’t). There was even a change of sheets and towels and basic cleaning once during our stay. The house is perfectly located if you want to travel to any part of Crete (with a car). The nearest equipped beach is 15 minutes drive. And the village it self has several taverns, so there is no problem with food. We recommend tavern Rodamantis - a welcoming owner and great food. We had a great time and definitely recommend this house for a lovely holiday .

  • Amazing welcoming by the mother. Including table of food and generous hospitality. Impeccably clean house. All amenities mentioned actually existed. The owners were available 24/7 for our questions about the area, car service and everything else. Felt like at home. Would definitely go back. Was such a joyful stay.

  • For everyone planning to experience the real Cretan life in the lovely village of Mochos this is the perfect place to stay. A warm welcome from Yiorgos parents with raki and fresh fruits made us feel home immediately. The appartment has recently been renovated and has all the equiptment and facilitiies you need for a perfect time in Mochos. There is airconditioning, good Wifi, everything is new and clean and the terrace is a nice bonus. At an affordable price this is definitiely the best place to discover Crete if you don't want to be in one of the touristic places. Highly recommended!

  • the house is completely renovated and very comfortable. Yiorgos's father, Joseph and his wife were very friendly and gave us good hospitality. Even if the night was really hot we didn't suffer at all. Very close to a lovely square full of tavernas.
