Really enjoyed our stay here. The pool is lovely. We stayed at no 3 which had a large private terrace overlooking the farm land. If you stayed above the pool you might get sea views. The staff are lovely and very helpful. The beach is close and green beach was our favourite with a sweet taverna.

These accommodations are architecturally distinct as they are each built into the natural stone of the hillside. Though our room had the feeling of an old-world dwelling, the kitchenette was fully appointed, the pool area was beautiful and had a waterfall, and we had covered parking for the car. There was no extra charge for internet access and it was... More

What a fantastic place to stay and unwind. This really is different, some 15 stone build cottages hewn into the hillside at the foot of the Pefki gorge. The rooms have everything that you need and there just seems to be a place for everything, it's also the first room I've ever had where I was able to put the... More

A great place to stay in Southern Crete. Restored stone cottages with great respect shown to their natural surroundings. All mod cons provided, good wifi connection and the staff and owner couldn't be more helpful. Great location as far as food and beaches are concerned as well. Loved it and can't wait to come back!

This place is at a wonderful location ,right at the beginning of the Pefki gorge . It is a 900 meter walk/drive from the main street to the cottages . When on foot you should bring a flashlight . Very private and cozy cottages ; I had a bit of a Hobbit feeling when entering for the first time ;-)... More

We spent nice weekend at wrc. Everything is as adviced - interesting property, quiet location, nice pool, beach reachable by foot (13 minutes of walk). If you go down to the village there you will find great sandy beach. At the beach promenade you will find a lot of tavernas offering good meal (not always traditional). You can walk to... More

We loved this place. It was so peaceful and magical, cats milling around unobtrusively surveying the visitors, the studio cave houses were like hobbit houses we had no3 and it was lovely with a private terrace sheltered by an olive tree. Added welcome touches such as wine and flowers, a well equipped kitchen and good wifi and a/c . The... More

Being here for a weekend left a certain feeling of deep relax. My 4 years son was happy with pool, the paths, the cats. The whole complex is a very old small stone built village, renewed with respect to the tradition and it is obvious that owners smartly love beauty and environment.
