Beautifull House and Location





















We had a fantastic holiday here, enjoying the pool and lots of relaxing in the shade in the garden. The house is well placed for exploring the island and for evening trips into Chania, where we enjoyed trying different restaurants or for staying in, cooking on the stone barbeque and looking at the night sky. Thank you for all your hospitality, we can thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Charmante Maison ancienne ide`alment Situe`e

Maison pleine de charme, et situation idéale pour visiter l'est de la Crète. Les propriétaires sont absolument charmant, et plein de petites attentions qui vous font passer un très agréable séjour. La piscine est parfaite, la description dans l'annonce est la réalité, vous êtes au milieu des orangers, mandariniers, pamplemoussiers et oliviers dans un calme absolu.

Best holiday ever!

The most relaxing place we have EVER stayed in. For the first four days of our holiday we didn't even leave it, just lounged around reading in the hammocks and watching the children swim in the wonderful pool. The house itself was spotless, well equipped and really comfortable, and our perfect hosts – helpful, knowledgeable and friendly but never intrusive. All their recommendations regarding local beaches and tavernas were spot on, and we visited lots of places we'd never have found on our own because of them. The surrounding area is beautiful and Chania is a gorgeous town. All in all, it's an amazing place and we would recommend it to anyone in search of a relaxing and restorative break. We were so sad to leave and can't wait to go back!!!

Wonderfull! W`ell go again!

Our holiday proved to be everything that the description promised and more. A very relaxing, private, peaceful villa, off the beaten track but close enough to amenities. A truly welcoming and helpful couple who would go out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, even in the middle of a petrol strike and increasing drought. We felt so at home that we would quite happily ha

Fantastic escape in rural Crete

  • 5 of 5
Despite the excellent directions from John and Sarah we still managed to get a bit lost as the house is tucked away up a remote track, but it's in such a beautiful setting amongst the foothills of the White Mountains that it was well worth the journey. Our hosts were friendly and helpful - our two boys loved the gift of chocolate eggs to celebrate Easter, and we loved the bottle of wine! - and the house was spotlessly clean and thoughtfully equipped. The pool was a bit chilly for us to use at this time of year but the garden was a great place for relaxing and playing (although the pool is not fenced off which I'd have found stressful if I had younger children). The weather was kind to us for most of the week but evenings were a bit chilly, so we were very grateful for the wood-burning stove and plentiful supply of logs. You definitely need to hire a car to stay here but the beach, Chania and supermarkets are all an easy drive away and we enjoyed exploring the area. We'd definitely recommend a break here!

A lovely, relaxing house

  • 5 of 5
We had a really good stay here, greatly enjoying both the house and the local area. The house was very comfortable and well equipped and lovely and cool, the garden, with its extensive views, was a great place to relax, and the pool (heated, no less) was ideal for us and our two children, being so close to the house. The owners, John and Sarah, were really kind and helpful without ever being intrusive, and the lemons and grapefruit on their trees were delicious. It's a good location for exploring the west of the island, and we particularly enjoyed trips to the amazing beach at Elafonisi, Lake Kournas as well as Xania, which is about 25 mins' drive. The island's 'motorway' is handily placed just a few minutes from the door - though not all the roads on the island are as good. The quality of food and the warmth of the hospitality were outstanding almost everywhere. Even the Limnopoulis water park was one of the most civilised of its kind. We definitely hope to be back

Everything you need to relax

  • 5 of 5
April 2013 we stayed in the beautiful cottage of John and Sarah.
The house had all the comfort we could wish for. We enjoyed the stove for the colder evenings. There is a great garden for relaxing, in the sun or in the shadow. The pool was wonderful. We made good use of it.
Overall we had a very relaxing week and wenn we come back to Crete we certainly would like to stay here again.
The location is ideal to go where ever you want (for visiting Chania, to make nice walks in the gorges, to go to the beautiful beaches etc.) and then return to your quiet place in the hills, with lovely views.
John and Sarah are great hosts. We loved the fresh oranges and eggs they brought us!

Best Holiday Ever!!

  • 5 of 5
We are Theun, Machteld and Isis (2 years old), from Holland. We stayed with John and Sarah in July of this year.
We had the best holiday ever! It´s the combination between the nice house, lovely owners, privacy, nature around you, weather and sea.
Everything you need to relax, unwind and get in touch with nature, each other and yourself.
The pool and garden area are safe for little children. Because the garden is fenced you can easliy wath your little one.
We will be back next summer!
Thanks again for your hospitality!

Found the perfect place!

  • 5 of 5
To find this beautiful, carefully and with lots of love renovated old stone-house was the best thing that could possibly have happened to us on our 4 week trip to Cyprus and Crete! The house is equipped with everything you need for cooking for 4 people, the "master bedroom" upstairs is spacious, from there you come into the lovely bathroom with bathtub / shower and into the small 2-bed-bedroom for the kids.
From upstairs you have access onto the big balcony which overlooks the lovely, enclosed garden with olive trees, 2 hammocks between them, the "barbecue-in-the-wall" and the heated pool. Our kids did not want to leave it unless Tigger and Ginger, John and Sarah´s cats, came over to visit!
Downstairs is a large room with kitchen, dinning table, sofas, small TV and CD-Radio. The ambiente is absolutely lovely, old stone walls, wodden enterieur.
Most windows and doors are equipped with moskito nets or moskito-sliding doors or -roller blinds (and it´s recommandable to keep them closed!)
When I´ve finally convinced my family to actually leave the house for half a day to explore the area, there was so much to see and do close by. The Akrotiri Peninsula with the monasteries and lovely beaches; the "Lefka Ori", the white mountains (spectacular views and the entry to the Samaria Gorge, which we´ll do next time) the south coast (we´ve only visited Sougia, which should not be missed, so beautiful!! and there´s so much more there!!) We´ll do the botanic gardens of Crete when our kids are a bit older.
John´s directions to find the house where excellent, including directions to our favorite supermarket on the way to stock up on our arrival. John and Sarah, who renovated the house to let it, are lovely and willing to help with anything. They live next door with their two kids and cats and Marmite, the friendly dog, and their fish and hens... so you might get fresh eggs to welcome you! And oranges and grapefruit!
So we can recommend most warmly to book your holiday in this wonderful place, relax by the pool, especially at night to try and count the countless stars, listen to the quiet, the occasional bark of a village dog or a badly timed cock. Swing softly in the hammock in the shade of the olive trees or sun-bake in one of the comfy sunbeds around the pool, there is sunshine or shade just as you like all day!

We will certainly come back!
