We are a mature aged Australian couple who fell in love with Mochlos in 2006. We come back every year and still find it to be a magic place with wonderful traditions and people.
Peter and Rosanne Coumbis purchased this villa in 2006
We fell in love with Mochlos in 2006 when we were travelling around Crete on holiday. Mochlos was a welcome relief from the mass tourism we had experienced elsewhere. We purchased the land before we returned to Australia and commenced construction the following year.
When travelling around Crete we found furnishings in accommodation very basic and uncomfortable. We wanted a comfortable alternative. We have only the best quality furnishings and fittings so your stay is a comfortable one. Free unlimited internet, TV, DVD, Eygptian cotton sheets, luxurious towels, soft mattress, artworks, dishwashers, washing machine. Nothing has been overlooked so our villa is as luxurious as possible.
Wir haben eine wunderbare Woche auf Kreta verbracht, auch wenn uns das Wetter Ende März noch nicht ganz so entgegen kam. Mochlos ist ein charmantes Fischerdorf mit guten Ausgangsmöglickeiten zum wandern und radfahren. Die Villa ist wirklich toll, und wir können uns unseren Vorrednern nur anschließen. Alles ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, die Räume sind komfortabel, großzügig und sauber. Höhepunkt sind die großen Terrassen mit Meerblick! Vielen Dank den Gastgebern! Wir kommen gern wieder!
Mochlos is one of the nicest places we have ever seen and this house offers everything you need for a pleasant and relaxing holiday. It is completely and functional furnished, in a modern and comfortable style and very well equipped. The owners, Rosa and Peter, are very friendly and helpful.
To put it briefly – it is perfekt!
However, before you spend too much time in the perfectly equipped kitchen, you should visit the wonderful taverns (e.g. "To Bogazi") with delicious local dishes and enjoy the superb fresh fish and seafood and many other specialities of the Cretan kitchen.
We enjoyed our stay and had a very good time! Mochlos is a wonderful place to be and we would be happy to come again.

Very neat and very clean and very well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing stay in a very quiet and laid-back part of Crete.
Very friendly and helpful owners.
An easy drive to loads of interesting places if you fancy days out. Two spacious verandas with sea views and sunny aspects, one of which isn't overlooked at all.
Dimitri at Dimitri's Taverna opposite the shop in the village (5 mins walk) speaks good English, his menu will not leave you disappointed and he will put you at your ease with his relaxed and welcoming brand of hospitality.
Getting in & out of the shower can be a challenge, being quite a high step, but if you can get on and off the aeroplane unaided, that shouldn't present a problem for you.
I've already recommended to several friends.
Ten out of ten and thank you for the opportunity to stay in this lovely house in this lovely part of the world.
This is our third stay in two years at Villa Alexandros and, as always, up to its usual high and comfortable standard. Mochlos is a great and still, as yet, unspoiled former fishing village with great tavernas. We especially recommend Kochylia and Dimitri’s where the food and hospitality are second to none. The village is also surrounded by Minoan archaeology which gives it that added intrigue – if you like that sort of thing, which we do and which is why we keep returning. Fantastic time as always, thanks to Mochlos and Villa Alexandros.
We spent 12 wonderful days in Mochlos and the villa - a great place to be :-)!!!
We are very eager to come back soon. Best regards from Berlin!

Fantastic villa - cosy, comfortable, well laid out and equipped with everything you could possibly need. Easy walk to village and friendly tavernas. Great views to the island and across the mountains. Mochlos already paradise to us and this accommodation made it more so. Highly recommend - except when we want to go back!

The attractive settlement of Mochlos with its small harbour, beach and wonderful sea views is rare. It has escaped mass tourism and retained an idyllic existence. Mochlos is a 64km drive from the Iraklion international airport and 57km from the Sitea International airport.
Mochlos has nine traditional tavernas each owned by a local family serving delicious home cooked meals. Locals from the nearby city of Agios Nikolaos and surrounding areas enjoy long summer lunches here. Picturesque Mochlos overlooks the Mochlos Minoan Palace on the island just offshore. Together with the Palace of Knossos it is considered one of Crete’s significant archaeological sites.
There are many things to do in Mochlos. Walks to gorges, mountains and magnificent waterfalls. Explore the ancient sites, swim in crystal clear seas, take a boatride to the caves, play tennis or explore off road with a 4x4 trek. Relax, enjoy a book or the sunset with a raki or ouzo that somehow tastes better in Mochlos.
