Another wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Paul and Astra's Mesa Riza. We loved it the first time and even more the second time. Paul and Astra are perfect hosts, offering extras if you fancy an excursion but also leaving you in peace to enjoy the super location in the hills. We have been on 2 excursions and I would recommend them, Paul taking us to special places we might never have found on our own. The apartments are spacious and very comfortable and the pool is a delight to cool off in. We will most certainly return. Thank you Paul and Astra for creating such a lovely place.

Une merveilleuse experience !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passe une semaine formidable avec Paul et Astra. La propriété est idéalement placée par rapport à Agia Galini dans un endroit vraiment reposant et facile d'acces avec une trés belle piscine qui surplombe la vallée du Platis Potamos donnant un très beau panorama. Paul et Astra sont des personnes adorables d'une grande sensibilité ainsi que d'une grande richesse intérieure qui ont toujours été là pour nous conseiller et faire de notre séjour un moment magique !!!! C'est un gite incontournable dans la région pour ceux qui aiment la musique, le repos et les massages !!!! Nous y reviendrons bientôt !!!

A little bit of my heart stays at Mesa Riza

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Paul and Astra...we had a truly wonderful holiday...the apartments are in the glorious Cretan mountains just 10 minutes from Agia Galini where we shopped at the super welcoming and friendly supermarket Roula and ate yummy Greek food at many of the restaurants. Paul and Astra's top tips were very helpful and we had many day trips to monasteries, gorges, ancient ruins and glorious beaches. One of our magical moments was our day trip with Paul...who had every confidence that we would make it to the top of the mountain...a moment in time...thank you. And then always the pool to have an early morning dip and flop not at the end of the day. Special place.

A little piece of paradise

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in GAMMA apartment for one week, four adults and three childrens.

Our stay was great! We enjoyed Mesa Riza for its fantastic position, far enough from the closest village (Aja Galini), offering the best compromise between comforts and tranquility.

The property is very well-mantained and clean in all parts. Paul and Astra, the owners, are very kind people and they did everything to keep our stay at the best. The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped.

In a range of 20/25 km from Mesa Riza we found some of the most wild and beautiful beaches of Crete (Ajos Pavlos, Preveli, Ajos Georgios, ...).

Aja Galini is a pretty nice village with all basic services and many restaurant. Our favorite restaurant was Stochos: very good food, very good persons and very much raky!

If you want really enjoy Crete and its wildmost part, far from the most frequented and noisy areas, then Mesa Riza is a great choice!

Thanks to Paul and Astra for the great opportunity.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

It gets better all the time. It was our third time at Mesa Riza and it was wonderful, once again. The apartments have all you need, the location is very peaceful (outside of town, which you can reach in 5 minutes by car) and a great family vacation spot. Either you hang around lazy at the pool and let the day go by, or Paul takes you on an excursion which will alter your perspective on Crete. Highly recommended.

Our Great Escape from rainy Germany

  • 4 of 5

Sorry for taking so long to write our review, but we have been so busy looking at our vacation pictures of Crete and being caught up in a constant daydream! We absolutely loved our stay at Mesa Riza. The place was just like the description, but even better because we were there. The apartment was clean and spacious. Paul met us late at night when we first arrived. He was extremely pleasant and had great suggestions about what to do in the vicinity. We have already recommended this place to so many people. It was an absolute dream. The people of Ayia Galini are very genuine and helpful. Every restaurant we tried was excellent. The beaches were so wonderful, except for the film of oil on the water's surface at Preveli, but still worth the visit for the river upstream. We're looking forward to another trip to Crete someday. Maybe Paul will open a different place at a different location on Crete just so we can explore some other territory? That would be great. Thanks again for the great time!

The villas Mesa Riza 'is completely free in a fabulous unspoilt landscape in the south of Crete.

Majestic mountains, a real river and the azure sea are your only neighbors!

The brand new pool of 8 to 5 meters and more than spacious terrace with comfortable sun beds / umbrellas ... invites you to relax and entertainment.

The grand garden with landscaped private path to the river makes you dream and achieve resourcing.

The exclusive parking area to the villa gives you just that little extra more.

The beautiful village of Agia Galini (320 sunny days / year) with an abundance of all sorts of possibilities (from sports to gourmet) is only 2 km away.
