The best hotel in Stalis. Giorgos and his family the best people under the Cretan sun. They are able to dispel all the clouds. I recommend visiting Lia Sofia in September has its secret charm. Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the Cretan rain.

We decided to go here because the reviews were so good even though we felt the photos didn't look that nice... It is much nicer in person. The owner is very nice and let us drop off food in the fridge early in the day and offered to have our room ready quickly (even though we were so early). This... More

The location is perfect - this is our 3rd year running going back and already checking flights for next year. George and Costas are lovely and wouldn't consider anywhere else in Stalis. My husband loves the homemade wine from Costas and always enjoys the sample waiting for us when we arrive. Cheers George and Costas and see you again September... More

Excellent holiday. Just returned from two weeks at Lia Sofia. Owners very friendly and helpful. Spotlessly clean and towels and linen changed regularly. Excellent location so close to beach and restaurants but peaceful at night. Supermarket opposite. George arranged taxi transfers at a reduced rate. Lovely wine and cake in room on arrival. Will definitely be returning next year.

Have just returned home and want to go back. The apartment we had was smashing for the price we paid for it and the family there were so wonderful to us we felt completely at home from the moment we arrived. George is a fabulous host and speaks superb English so communication was easy and put our poor attempts at... More

Very nice apartments situated on a quiet street next to the centre of Stalis. There are lots of places to eat, shops, a bus stop and a car rent nearby. The beach is just across the road, 3 minutes walk. The owner - Giorgos and his parents Kostas and Lia are wonderful people who made us feel at home, they... More

The appartments are very nice and have a good standard. We had a fantastic big balcony. We loved to be there. It´s located near everyting, shops, restaurants, car- rentals and to the beach. The owners were very friendly and looked after you and helped you if you needed anything. We highly recomend this place.
