Lovely relaxing holidays start with breakfasts of oranges squeezed with the magic yellow orange-squeezer followed by local yoghourt and honey bought from the butcher's shop in the village. We often ate these sitting on the balcony with views over the orange groves in the valley.
We love western Crete in springtime with wonderful wild flowers everywhere and snow on the White Mountains but this year we enjoyed autumn, when the mountains were still white because they're limestone and the sea was warm for swimming.

We walked, from the house, a pleasant circular route to Kalives . This avoids roads by going through residential Armeni and then the countryside, returning along the bottom of the valley.
We swam in Kalives in the more sheltered waters near the harbour or at the western end “Blue Beach”.
We walked, almost every evening, into the village to eat at friendly Tsoukas Taverna or Karudias (walnut tree). Simple food, well-cooked. We walked by the stream instead of on the road and saw trout swimming.
We also hired a car and have driven to Sfakia and Aradhena Gorge – wonderful if you can cope with multiple hairpin bends – Polyrhinia ruins and Falasarna on the western tip of Crete as well as the local ruins of Aptera, the monasteries of Akrotiri and Chania and Rethimnon towns. Yes we've been back to Armeni several times and have always had a wonderful welcome from Stephanos and Christiane.

September holiday 2010

  • 5 of 5
The property is lovely - just up our street. The area and views are brilliant. Walking into Armeni in the evening for a meal at one of four tavernas was a great experience - even in the dark.! Not far from the beach either if you walk down to Kalives. Would love to go back.
Thank you Christiane.

Stefanos und seine Tierfreunde

  • 4 of 5
Am meisten haben sich die geschlossenen Freundschaften eingeprägt: der sehr nette und zuvorkommende Stefanos von nebenan, mit seinen 2 Hühnern und 4 bis 5 Katzen. Eine seiner Katzen hätten wir am liebsten direkt in den Koffer gepackt.

Man wohnt in zentraler Lage, auf die wir es für viele Ausflüge auch abgesehen hatten. Sternenförmig ist man, soweit es die Berge und Serpentinen Kretas dies zulassen, sehr gut untewegs. Wir hätten gerne vorher gewusst, dass das Haus mit seiner tollen Aussicht, angenehmen Größe und dem bequemen Bett an einer Straße liegt.
Für kalte Tage/Nächte braucht es einen Pullover, wovon wir aber nur am Rande mitbekommen haben. Die Sauberkeit des Hauses war Kategorie blitz-blank. Die gute Seele, eine sehr sehr nette Kretin haben wir auch kennengelernt.

Wir hatten insgesamt eine schöne Zeit, empfehlen das Haus auch weiter, nur wir suchen uns für unsere Reise Kreta Teil 2, wenn es in den Osten geht etwas in der Pampa, mit Natur pur und abseits aller Ströme.

Allen Kreta-Reisenden eine schöne und erholsame Zeit!

Traumurlaub auf Kreta!

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren vom 15. September – 6. Oktober 2012 im Haus Stefanos und hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit! Das Häuschen ist klein aber fein und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt! Auf der Terasse läßt sich herrlich das Frühstück und der abendliche Wein genießen, und auf der Dachterasse bei toller Aussicht das Sonnenbad! Zum Strand ist es nicht weit und im nahe gelegenen Kalyves bekommt man alles, was man zu einem entspannten Urlaubsleben braucht. Dieses schöne Feriendomizil ist der ideale Ausgangspunkt für viele Ausflüge und entspannte Tage am Strand von Kalyves. Die süßen Katzen, die immer wieder vorbeischauen und in die man sich einfach verlieben muß, tragen mit zum Wohlfühlfaktor bei! Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder! Thomas & Eveline

Pleasant house in a lovely place

  • 5 of 5
Armeni is a lovely centre for gentle walks through orange blossom, olive groves and pastures and in April the wild flowers are beautiful. This house is also a good centre for touring; about three minutes drive from the National Road, for the beach (five minutes drive) and for getting to know the White Mountains. We enjoyed walking in the evenings to one of the local tavernas, where we enjoyed local food in a welcoming environment. The owner of the house lives near and is friendly.

das stimmt so natürlich nicht, wie wir in unserem wundervollen Urlaub feststellen durften. Wer hier Urlaub macht, sollte nichts gegen Katzen bzw. den lieben Hund haben.
Die Abende auf der Dachterasse oder dem kleinen Balkon sind uns in guter Erinnerung geblieben, die Tage haben wir in der Umgebung verbracht (Strand, alte Steine, Berge, Essen und und und).
Nette Vermieter vor Ort, die sich schnell und unkomliziert um alles gekümmert haben und uns viele gute Ratschläge für Touren und Restaurants geben konnten.

Eine schöne Zeit.

Car: not necessary

The village of Armeni with its 5oo inhabitants is about 200m away. There is a traditional kafeneion, a small Minimarket,a bakery, a good butcher with homemade cheese and jogurt as well as four excellent tavernas with traditional greek dishes.

Kalives with its white sandy beaches is 2km away, Chania and Georgioupolis 20 km.

In the area are many hiking possibilities like the famous Samaria Gorge but also less known gorges like the Imbros Gorge.

Recommended are also the famous Minoan Palace of Knossos at Heraklion, Phaestos and less known archaeological sites like Aptera in 5km distance. There is currently an amphitheatre excavated by archaeologists.

Because of its central location the holiday home is a perfect starting point for excursions to the South and the West of Crete. Places of interest like Falassarana, Elafonissos, Frangokastello, Paleochora, Chania and Rethymnon are easy to visit in day trips.
