What a superb place! Right from the very first moment we arrived after midnight, Stefanos and Roula were so welcoming! A fridge stocked with enough for us to have breakfast the next day, as well as very welcome wine and beer. Roula's cooking was super, little pastry stuffed with cheese and the most delicious potato dish, which definitely beat all... More

We stayed at St George's Retreat for 9 days at the beginning of June. What a fabulous place and location - the views from the stylish villas are just breathtaking. The villas themselves are clean, well equipped and the decor is really tasteful - just perfect. We had a fabulous break - even though the weather let us down on... More

We visited St Georges last September (apologies for the late review!) and it was without doubt, the best holiday we've ever had. From the moment we arrived, all our stresses and worries of work etc just disappeared as there is really no option but to relax here! The villas are set high up off the beaten track (you will most...

Stayed 12 nights in April 2015 in Villa Thalia at this spectacular location. Everything starting to bloom on Crete, no crowds yet, sheep and goats and birds are all you can hear. The views are absolutely amazing. Roula is a superb hostess who treated us to seriously good homemade baked goods and moussaka throughout our stay. The fridge in the... More

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...

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
