About Peter and Rosanne Coumbis

We are a mature aged Australian couple who fell in love with Mochlos in 2006. We come back every year and still find it to be a magic place with wonderful traditions and people.

Peter and Rosanne Coumbis purchased this villa in 2006

Why Peter and Rosanne Coumbis chose Lassithi

We fell in love with Mochlos in 2006 when we were travelling around Crete on holiday. Mochlos was a welcome relief from the mass tourism we had experienced elsewhere. We purchased the land before we returned to Australia and commenced construction the following year.

What makes this villa unique

When travelling around Crete we found furnishings in accommodation very basic and uncomfortable. We wanted a comfortable alternative. We have only the best quality furnishings and fittings so your stay is a comfortable one. Free unlimited internet, TV, DVD, Eygptian cotton sheets, luxurious towels, soft mattress, artworks, dishwashers, washing machine. Nothing has been overlooked so our villa is as luxurious as possible.

Absolute paradise - both the villa and the village. And now free Wi-Fi in the villa as an added bonus. Cannot go wrong with this place and we keep coming back for more! We feel very at home in the villa as it has all the comforts you could need. The village is full of lovely people, especially Yiorgo at Koxilia Taverna and Dimitri at Dimitri's Taverna. And hardly a cloud in the sky. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased to receive your review. We feel the same way about Mochlos. It is a little paradise hidden away from mass tourism. We always value feedback on how to improve things for our guests. The wi-fi was a guest's suggestion that it would be beneficial. Guests wanting to chill out can ignore it and those that want to keep in contact can now do so. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.

Traumhafter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei wunderschöne Wochen in Mochlos, bzw. in der perfekten Villa von Rosanne und Peter verbracht. Das Haus ist super eingerichtet und hat eine traumhafte Aussicht auf das Meer und die Berge (und das vom Bett aus!!!).

Mochlos ist zu Fuß in 5 min zu erreichen und man fühlt sich sofort wohl. Die Auswahl der Tavernen ist groß, wir sind jedoch immer wieder bei Dimitri eingekehrt. Seine Küche ist hervorragend, ebenso wie der nette Service.

Von Mochlos aus hatten wir auch gute Startmöglichkeiten, einige Schluchte zu bewandern (hier speziell die Richtis Schlucht, mit Wasserfällen). Nochmals vielen Dank an Rosanne und Peter. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder.

As always, a delight to stay in both Mochlos and Villa Alexandros. Just a 10 day visit over UK Easter but very relaxing. Sunny most days except the last when it rained quite heavily but we didn't care! Did get soaked walking down to Dimitris taverna in the evening but he supplied us with dry clothes - great hospitality. Highly recomend villa and resort.

Wahnsinnig gut!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine wunderbare Woche auf Kreta verbracht, auch wenn uns das Wetter Ende März noch nicht ganz so entgegen kam. Mochlos ist ein charmantes Fischerdorf mit guten Ausgangsmöglickeiten zum wandern und radfahren. Die Villa ist wirklich toll, und wir können uns unseren Vorrednern nur anschließen. Alles ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, die Räume sind komfortabel, großzügig und sauber. Höhepunkt sind die großen Terrassen mit Meerblick! Vielen Dank den Gastgebern! Wir kommen gern wieder!

Excellent Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5

Mochlos is one of the nicest places we have ever seen and this house offers everything you need for a pleasant and relaxing holiday. It is completely and functional furnished, in a modern and comfortable style and very well equipped. The owners, Rosa and Peter, are very friendly and helpful.

To put it briefly – it is perfekt!

However, before you spend too much time in the perfectly equipped kitchen, you should visit the wonderful taverns (e.g. "To Bogazi") with delicious local dishes and enjoy the superb fresh fish and seafood and many other specialities of the Cretan kitchen.

We enjoyed our stay and had a very good time! Mochlos is a wonderful place to be and we would be happy to come again.

The attractive settlement of Mochlos with its small harbour, beach and wonderful sea views is rare. It has escaped mass tourism and retained an idyllic existence. Mochlos is a 64km drive from the Iraklion international airport and 57km from the Sitea International airport.

Mochlos has nine traditional tavernas each owned by a local family serving delicious home cooked meals. Locals from the nearby city of Agios Nikolaos and surrounding areas enjoy long summer lunches here. Picturesque Mochlos overlooks the Mochlos Minoan Palace on the island just offshore. Together with the Palace of Knossos it is considered one of Crete’s significant archaeological sites.

There are many things to do in Mochlos. Walks to gorges, mountains and magnificent waterfalls. Explore the ancient sites, swim in crystal clear seas, take a boatride to the caves, play tennis or explore off road with a 4x4 trek. Relax, enjoy a book or the sunset with a raki or ouzo that somehow tastes better in Mochlos.

Other Activities: 4 wheel driving
