wonderful holiday experience at St. George's retreat. Villa was beautiful, ample size and had all the amenities needed and more. Roula and Stefanos were exemplary hosts, who were both friendly helpful and generous, often provided with delicious homemade treats. The surrounding area was perfect, picking fruit off the trees whenever we needed and relaxing by the pool, which although small,... More

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks at St George's Retreat with our 2 children, and found it to be perfect in every way. The photos don't really do it justice as the flowering plants and fruit trees are now well established, and the quality of accommodation and furnishings are very good. There are lots of beaches & taverna's within either... More

Stefano's and Roula's villas are amazing! They welcomed us like we were family. The Villa Urania was perfect for the 5 of us. They had supplied us with all the basics for our first day or two - coffee, wine, beer, bread, milk, etc. Roula had even baked us a delicious chocolate cake! Our first evening they came by with...

The villas are perfect size for a small family, with many commodities. Pools, grills, full Kitchen,etc... The Almyrida sandy beach is a short distance... More

These villas are just perfect. The fruit trees and herbs surrounding the villas make for an inspiring environment to cook your own food. The villas are clean and just perfect size with everything you need for a family. The trip is coming to an end and I wish I could come every year to this very special place. I recommend... More

This little village of 9 independent units (houses) offers the most magnificent backbone to a honeymoon, a family vacation or a get-together vacation for friends. The experience from the very beginning was more than excellent - making the reservation and deposit payment was easy, when I requested a few preparations as this was our honeymoon, the reply was simply "consider...

The name "Retreat" is very much appropriate!, that's the word that drew us into researching and finally booking this stay at Stefanos and Roula's villas. We were made most welcome by Katarina and the Stefanos came to see us and explained the area, where to go and eat etc and where to explore, nothing was too much bother. When we... More

We had a wonderful two weeks at St George's Villa Retreat. It's been said many times before, but Stefanos and Roula really are amazing hosts. We arrived at 11pm and were welcomed with open arms. The fridge was stocked with a bottle of wine, beer, homemade dolmades, cake, cheese, ham, bread, eggs etc. And some lovely touches like a bottle... More

Stefanos, Roula, I have been meaning to write this review for quite some time as my husband, 1 year old daughter and father-in-law spent a week at St George's last summer. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation, a private little house with breathtaking views, privacy and the kind of scenery you can't get enough of when you open... More

This was more than a villa rental – it was a Cretan experience. The historical location is just outside of a small village and half way up a mountain in a mix of farming and residential properties. Quiet location, stunning sea and mountain views from each patio. Our villa was super clean and well equipped with modern conveniences including a... More
