From the moment we were welcomed by new owners Ria and Jeroen at Footscapes we had a wonderful time. Perched on a hill above great countryside we had views both to the sea and mountains. The studio is well equipped with real cooker and fridge, and we understood the decor and furniture has recently been refreshed. It's great place for... More

We booked this holiday together with another couple, who had hired a car. Our plan was to do a mixture of guided and self-guided walks, and also do some some exploring further afield. Jeroen and Ria delighted us from the start with the warmth of their hospitality, and make our week something that we shall treasure. The studio apartments were... More

My friend and I spent a week here in April. What a lovely warm welcom from Jeroen and Ria. Excellent welcome packs in our studio apartments and fantastic views of snow-covered peaks in both directions. The apartments are comfortable and well-appointed, breakfast could be ordered from Ria and was delivered to our accommodation on a tray by Jeroen. We also... More

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
