Although we had a confirmed booking from www.booking.com the owner had double booked the Almond Tree resulting in us not haveing a place to stay. Our vacaction was ruined! Be carefull, although you will get a confirmation that you have booked the villa, nothing is guaranteed as the owner is a crook and books it several times on the same... More

We have just enjoyed a week in Leonidas House which is very quaint and rustic. The view from the upstairs terrace is stunning and the outdoor kitchen is a bonus as cold drinks are on hand and a simple meal can be cooked outside. The photo's on 'The Traditional Homes and Villas of Crete' website are slightly misleading as they... More

Our contact person - Mr. Argiro Peraki- has been really kind and helpful and led us to this beautiful place, a house built in stone and wood,... More

We stayed at 'Margarita' (Traditional Homes of Crete), in Mavrikiano for 10 days in April. After seeing the photos on the website we knew we were in for a different experience to our usual self-catering accommodation. We arrived in Crete at 11pm and drove to Elounda to meet the house keeper Vaggelis who escorted us to the house. Make sure... More

Very cozy appartments with highly perceived architecture and taste on a marvelous location with magic sea view. Ideal for couples that enjoy privacy and wish to experience authentic stay at a Cretan village with friendly locals. We've loved every minute of our 2 week stay and we are definately coming back...
