Delightful cottage, ideally located, with excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

A delightful cottage, well appointed, in a quiet village ideally located for exploring central Crete. The owners, Susanna and Manolis, are exceptionally kind, generous and helpful. We had a lovely stay and would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to others.

Wonderful, gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very pleasant week in this comfortable and well-equipped house. Our hosts, Susanna and Manolis, were very kind, providing us with all the information we needed and giving us a tour of the area when we arrived. The house is in a quiet village with lovely views of the mountains, conveniently located for seeing the archaeological sites of Crete. The kitchen has everything one would need, and the wifi works beautifully. Both hosts speak excellent English, so despite our lack of knowledge of Greek, we had no communication problems. Grocery stores and restaurants nearby provided everything we needed. We would love to return someday, and we would definitely recommend this house to other travelers.

Wunderschöner Urlaub in Siva

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei wunderschöne Wochen in einem typischen kretischen Haus in einem kleinen Dorf verbracht.

Das Haus ist liebevoll eingerichtet. Es strahlt eine wohlige Gemütlichkeit aus. Das Rustikale, die Kombination, Inneneinrichtung zu den Natursteinwänden, hat einen gewissen Charme. Im Haus war alles was wir benötigten vorhanden. Draußen gibt es einen Innenhof mit gemütlichen Sitzecken un einen uralten Orangenbaum, dessen Früchte leider noch nicht reif waren. Weiter oberhalb einen Obstgarten mit Früchten zum Naschen.

Siva liegt ca. 20 Min von Heraklion entfernt, an einer gut ausgebauten Straße, die die Insel durchquert. Ein Auto sollte unbedingt zur Verfügung stehen. Damit ist man flexibel und kann zahlreiche Tagesausflüge zu interessanten und wunderschönen Orten unternehmen.

Von unseren beiden Gastgebern, Susanne und Manolis, sind wir total begeistert. Sie gaben uns viele Tipps, zu interessanten Ausflugszielen und über nützliche Alltagsfragen. Einblick in die kretische Geschichte und der aktuellen Lebenssituation konnten wir durch unsere gemeinsamen Treffen und Unternehmungen erfahren.

In Erinnerung bleibt auch unser "fast nasser" Spaziergang über die Mole in Heraklion mit der anschließenden Einladung zum Essen in einer urigen Tarverne. Die mediterane Küche ist lecker und sehr zu empfehlen.

Insgesamt war unser Urlaub auf Kreta, in Siva unvergesslich schön, gerne werden wir wiederkommen.

Herzlichen Dank an Susanne und Manolis für die wunderbare Gastfreundschaft.

Silvie, Barbara und Harald, die Norddeutschen

Une location que nous conseillons chaleureusement!

  • 5 of 5

Merci à Susanna et Manolis pour leur accueil! Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour dans leur maison située à 17 km d'heraklion.

Susanna nous a donné plein de conseils d'excursions dans les alentours. Les enfants se sont amusés à aller cueillir des fruits dans les arbres du jardin que nous avons dégusté. Merci pour tout! Une location que nous conseillons chaleureusement!

Griechenland autentisch

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 9 Tage im Cottage und genossen, dass wir ganz für uns alleine waren. Die Ausstattung entsprach der Beschreibung.

Man muss wissen, dass man in den Ausläufern des Gebirges wohnt.

Strandbesuche sind nur mit Auto möglich aber dafür sieht man viel von der Insel und man kann auf Grund der Lage schnell im Süden der Insel sein wo nicht so viele Touristen unterwegs sind. Ganz nett wären 2 Liegestühle damit man vielleicht auch nur mal einen ganzen Tag im Schatten der Zitronenbäume abhängen kann ohne konkret etwas zu unternehmen. Alle war so wie wir es uns vorgestellt hatten und sind voll auf zufrieden. Gerne wieder auch zu Jahreszeiten wo mehr Wandern angesagt ist. Susanne und Manolis haben uns tolle Tips gegeben. Wir hätten diese tollen Ausflüge, wie z.b. Bootsausflug auf unbewohnte Insel nie selbst ausfindig gemacht.

Urlaub bei Freunden

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei erholsame Wochen Urlaub im Herzen von Kreta in einem liebevoll eingerichteten Ferienhäuschen verbringen dürfen. Unsere Gastgeber haben uns herzlich empfangen und uns wertvolle Tipps für einen gelungenen Urlaub gegeben.

Das kleine Cottage bietet alles, was man zur Entspannung braucht und ist gut ausgestattet und hat auch einen sehr schönen Außenbereich. Abseits vom Partylärm kann man sich gut erholen, ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen. Zum Meer ist es etwas weiter, aber mit einem fahrbaren Untersatz ist alles gut zu erreichen und man sieht dabei noch viel von der Insel.

Wir haben zwei liebenswerte Gastgeber kennen gelernt für die Gastfreundlichkeit nicht nur ein Wort ist, dafür nochmals herzlichen Dank. Wir können dies Unterkunft auf jeden Fall empfehlen.
