A perfect retreat in the heart of Crete

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful stay in Crete and based ourselves in Rethymnon. The house was perfectly placed in the centre of the old Venetian town. This ensured there was easy walking access to all the main areas of interest: Fortress; old town; parks; harbour; shopping; cafes and tavernas. We hired a car and could park very close by- this enabled us to explore the area further and we enjoyed beaches, coves, hillside monastery, villages, Knossos. The house itself has all amenities needed to be self sustained if you wish: kitchen and cooking/dining facilities; laundry; comfortable bedrooms with all linen included; bathrooms with towels; sun patio with furniture; TV and wifi etc etc. The pictures don't reflect the size of the property which is far more spacious than it appears. The best aspect of all is Maria the owner, she is the epitome of Cretan hospitality and genuinely wishes to ensure you have all that you need to feel comfortable and at home. As other reviews have stated there was an evening meal waiting on our arrival with all the basics stocked in the fridge to get us going- milk, bread, eggs, meat/cheese, butter. Even fresh figs and later in the week a surprise homemade cake- this was beyond all expectation. Maria is a warm and kind person and I feel a friend of the family by the end of our stay. She has another smaller property on the southern side of Crete that also looks great and I hope will be as successful for her as this one. So, go ahead and book now.....you will not be disappointed!

Character House in the old town of Rethymno

  • 5 of 5

Maria the owner was fantastic. She was the most hospitable host we have ever had and we have rented in England and other places in the world. The fridge was full, she made us a cake, she photocopied things for us, we had her family olive oil and when we stupidly struggled to use the key she came over immediately to help us out. A lovely woman who was helpful throughout.

The cottage was great, it was well equipped and spacious with a patio and large veranda for eating on or sunbathing on. It is in the old part of town so you feel you are living there and not just a tourist. It was dead centre for everything. Only 2 mins to the centre of town, 5 to the harbour and 15 min walk to the beach. For those who need it there is wifi and in the bedrooms air con which was bliss as in July/August when we stayed it was hot.

Rethymno is a lovely town, pretty to walk about in with many alleyways to explore. The Greek people were helpful and always polite.

We had a great holiday with Maria and thoroughly recommend a stay at Sofia's.

Venetian style in a quiet street in Rethymnon

We loved the house, which was very well supplied with everything to make for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Maria was extremely kind and always willing to go the extra mile to help us and make us feel at home.

Fantastic property in the heart of the old town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful -very old with lovely original features and very nicely furnished and well equipped. It was fantastic to be staying right in the beautiful and atmospheric old town. The house is very centrally located - within walking distance to everything in Rethymno with lots of great tavernas close by.

We hired a car so we could see a bit more of Crete and it was easy to park it just a few streets away.

Maria is a wonderful host and could not have been more welcoming. She really went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay which we very much appreciated.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely house and hope to return.

Sophie's House

  • 5 of 5

and the town of Rethymnon were first rate for our 4 days and would have been excellent for a much longer visit. Maria, our hostess, is a lovely person who went the extra mile. Among the dozens of apartments and gites we've stayed in in Europe, mostly France, this ranks right up at the top. Everything imaginable furnished. Bedroom upstairs tougher for some folks but a divan downstairs could be used as a single bed. Town offers congenial walks, tavernas, and very good restaurants in the old town where we stayed. Everyone quite helpful. Fine people. Tough language but easy to learn to say hello, thanks, and you're welcome. Excellent for a Rick Steves type of traveler. Bad for an incurious and imperious sort of American traveler who really prefers to eat at American restaurants and good old American food. (sic)

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The best accommodation I've ever stayed in. Beautiful home and could easily have stayed much longer. Maria is a wonderfull woman, she took time out to take us out for the day and brought eggs, juice and raki. Her familys olive oil is the best! However long you're in Rethymno stay here...thank you Maria 😚
