We stayed in an apartment I think (the ones with view of the sea). Fabulous. Great location, with a 15 min walk to the sea and the tavernas (which serve excellent food), and you have Minoan Palace ruins to yourself. Beautifully kept gardens and really nice touches such as hammocks and loungers in the shade. Home made jam, fresh bread... More

We stayed six nights in a studio. Stellas place is just loveley.( as is Stella ).Very comfortable and clean ( rooms cleaned every day except Sunday).The gardens are beautiful,shady and very well kept.No attention to detail has been spared.There is a harmony and calmness about the place,rareley found elsewhere. Kato Zakros is about as far off the beaten track as... More

We stayed in a "studio" for three days in October. Arranging our stay with Stella was easy. The accommodation was stunningly beautiful, so much so that I felt bad hanging my bathing suit and towel up to dry -- it spoiled the effect of the bougainvillea-covered porch by the beautiful patio. The room was nicely decorated, the bathroom clean and... More

A fantastic place in a fantastic landscape. The owners developed superb apartments combining their own interests, the Cretan spirit and Kato Zakros natural features. In every corner you will discover a miracle. A place to start your discoveries of Zakros area and enjoy your vacations.

We planned to stay in Kato Zakros for a few days but ended up staying for 11, partly because it was so hard to leave Stella's Apartments. Our apartment was beautiful inside and out with a big terrace and amazing views. The photos on the website give some idea, but can't show the peace and quiet of the gardens, apart... More

We had a lovely couple of nights at Stella's. Very relaxing and comfortable, with stunning views. We were in the far east of the island to visit Vai and the local antiquities, and we weren't disappointed. Will definitely stay here again.

After a few trips to western Crete, we wanted to experience eastern Crete. We knew the ideal place for us would be more traditional but comfortable, in a quiet area, at the seaside, and near a number of hiking trails. Stella's Terra Minoika villas fit that bill exactly. The villas are constructed in a traditional design, and as others have... More

We stayed here in July. The Villas are perfect - beautifully equipped to a very high standard, furnishings are excellent. Views are beautiful. Peace and Quiet abound. This place is relaxation heaven. Stella is a wonderful host - she thinks of everything and her standards are exemplary. This is the best holiday accomodation I have stayed, anywhere in Europe and... More
