We came to Crete for one week of hiking and relaxation and chose Monastery Estate to have easy access to the Samaria Gorge area. The service at the hotel was fantastic, and we appreciated the personal contacts with both the owner George and with the staff Marianna and Vera. They were all very friendly and helpful. The location is quite... More

Room design is very well thought out. Every detail is at its place. Great bed. View from the balcony is really breathtaking! The hosts are very helpful and friendly. You'll be welcomed by some bottles of beer :) Only 10 minutes by car down to the South there is huge gravel beach and lots of restaurants. It would be 10... More

The best place on earth is Moni and Monastery Estate. Where the Cretan hospitality meets the luxury and nature. It is a unique guesthouse, with excellent facilities and amazing people. You want to stay for ever at that place...

We enjoyed three delightful days in this apartment. The apartment has been very well renovated to a high standard. It has a lovely feel to it and the balcony and view we had was to die for, overlooking the valley and the mountains. The perfect place to relax and enjoy the view. There is a kitchen so you can cook... More

If you search a peaceful, quiet place, you are right. The appartements are really tastefully furnished, it's a very intimate athmosphere, you have lots of space. We had a very warm and nice welcome, little surprises every day and everything was cleaned everyday as well. Sougia is 4 km away, so you will need a car. There are some nice... More

We spent a wonderful week here! Everything was just perfect! It is a very quiet place with a nice mountain view. You can do a lot of hiking tours in the area. Sougia is just 4kms away and has a beach and nice tavernas. The apartments are very stylish and comfortable. George and Marianne were really helpful and attentive! Thumbs... More

We stayed here for a week in September- what a gorgeous place! Quiet and peaceful - sound of sheep bells and hum of cicadas... The apartment was lovely - stylish, comfortable, spotlessly clean, with good quality crisp linen etc. very cute and quirky bathroom. Bedroom was up a steep, almost ladder-like stair which was fun. Each apartment has its own... More

This is a gem of a place - a beautiful setting up in the hills, just a few miles from the lovely and laid-back town of Sougia. The five or so apartments are wonderful - stunningly-designed with lovely touches including crisp white sheets and great coffee. We also enjoyed a huge terrace to ourselves, and all this for an extremely... More

Really nice place in what looks like an almost abandoned village. If you want peace and something different this is the place to go. We really enjoyed our two days here, but even more just getting there as it was an adventure and reactions from locals in other towns in Crete when we told them we are going to Moni... More

This is a fantastic place to relax and get away from it all! Our room was lovely and had everything we needed and the view of the mountains was superb! It is a little way out of Sougia so you will need a car but definitely worth going and staying at for some peace and quiet! George and Katerina couldn't... More
