We arrived to Footscapes 5. of April and this year it was too early: both the weather and the studio were cold. Should have had woolen socks with us. Otherwise everything was very nice - new owners Jeroen and Ria where friendly and helpful and the neighborhood was perfect for hiking, which was why we had arrived there. Jeroen gave... More

Jeroen and Ria are the charming new Dutch owners of Footscapes, and we were their first visitors. The hilltop location of their modern studio apartments a few kilometres outside of Rethymnon is fabulous, with breathtaking views all around – so you can watch the sun rise over breakfast from the table by the front door and see it descend over...

We stayed at Footscapes in late September having searched for somewhere away from the crowds on the sea shores. Arriving late, we were greeted by Paul and Liz and shown to our rooms which were thoughtfully planned and furnished. As others have commented, their local knowledge is impressive so we were able to see much of the local area by... More

Left to my own devices I wouldn't have signed up to stay with a couple of Brits let alone for spending 3 of 6 days on guided walks, but the other 3 members of my party were keen. Consequently I was truly surprised to find how much Paul and Liz added to our holiday. Their knowledge and enthusiasm for the... More

Our second time with Paul and Liz at Footscapes and once again it was a great trip. This was certainly the time of year to go, we did a couple of guided walks and the info passed on by P&L made it a great experience. Once again we over ate in the local Tavernas and still can't believe the quality... More

We spent a superb week with Paul & Liz at Footscapes -- hired a car, walked for 3 days, explored the immediate area, and even took a day trip to Festos (at their recommendation). What a wonderful introduction to the mountain walking and small villages around Rethymnon -- and the walks were tailored to both our fitness level and our... More

Wanting to get to know the immeadiate area, I arrived without a car and hired a mountain bike. This was a little exciting for someone from Warwickshire, which is fairly flat but a great way to get my bearings and meet the locals. It is great mountain-biking country. My needs were more practical though and I could reach the local... More

I found Footscapes by chance while searching Trip Advisor for interesting places to stay in Crete. We both love hiking and I love the mountains so it seemed a good choice. All our email contact with Paul were quick and reliable. You need a car and a good sense of direction to find Footscapes but find it we did and... More

In May we made a return visit to Footscapes – in fact we’ve been returning every year since Footscapes opened in 2005, which says something about how much we enjoy our holidays there. Footscapes is spectacularly situated atop a small hill near the village of Kastellos. This affords wonderful views both to the sea and to the mountains. The studio... More

These three studios are superbly equipped - nothing fancy, but everything necessary, including a hot power shower! Where Paul and Liz excel is in the quantity and quality of information they provide, both on their website and in folders in each studio - with answers to questions from the obvious (where's good to eat?) to the arcane (why do we...
