About the property

Traditional House of the 18th Century, Renovated, With All Modern Comforts

Apokoronas is a historic and beautiful area of Crete with a landscape of wild mountains and fertile valleys. It was a place where emperors and lords of Byzantine Empire could reside and enjoy wealth and beauty. Vafes is one of the villages of Apokoronas (32km far from Chania, 28km far from Rethymno and 110km far from Heraklion). It's the only village of the prefecture of Chania which has been declared a historic preservable place because of history and traditional architecture.

“MOURIA” is a single space studio built of stone and wood. It has a bedroom with an old iron bed, a kitchenette and a bathroom with shower. Outside there is a courtyard with a seating area where visitors can enjoy a coffee or a drink.

The visitor will surely be impressed by the space which is decorated with antiques and offers calmness and relaxation. Outside the apartment there is a yard with trees of the area while on the terrace, visitors can enjoy the lovely view of the gorge and mountains where goats and sheep live.

The beautiful stone walls outside, the traditional oven, the barbeque and the swimming pool offer the visitor the chance of a unique and peaceful stay in beautiful natural surroundings away from the bustle of tourism. Scents and colours of the thyme, oregan, jasmine and other cretan plants and flowers give the visitor unique moments. The area has traditional cafes and taverns with delicious cretan plates and industries with local products (wine, cheese etc.). Relax in a unique place and take a journey into the past time. Information about the area, books with cretan nutrition and maps of the island are also provided.

Optisch sehr ansprechend aber sehr klein. Eher für eine Person als für zwei Personen geeignet

  • 3 of 5

Das Mouria Studio ist äußerst klein. Sehr kleines Bad, winzige Kochmöglichkeit. Diese Punkte gingen aus dem online Inserat nicht hervor.

Die Lage ist gedoch äußerst ansprechend.

Klimaanlage war zwar vorhanden funktionierte jedoch nicht. Gelsenstecker war auch nicht vorhanden.

Owner's Response: Dear Gunter, First of all I would like to thank you for your review as it definitely helps us to improve our guests' experience. The studio's size is as big as described in our listing and it is suitable for 2 persons. As for the air-condition failure, it can happen to every electrical device but it could be repaired very quickly by our staff. However, we were never informed about this issue although we were always available to our guests through our contact numbers. Kind regards, George Patsoumadakis
