“A wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This small family-run business is a gem hidden in the Cretan mountains. Its four rooms are traditionally decorated and equipped with all the facilities (shower cabin, cooker, coffee maker, A/C, TV, Wi-Fi) a modern house has. The village itself is one of the quietest places in Crete, thus guaranteeing peaceful sleep. Breakfast is served in baskets daily and consists of fresh fruit, eggs, milk and traditional local products like bread and cheese. However, the most satisfying part of our trip has got to be the warm hospitality and friendliness of the owner, Pantelis, and our housekeeper, Maria, who not only went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, but also regarded us as friends and shared many a bottle of raki with us in the yard of the compound almost every night. A place definitely not to be missed, if not for its beauty and comfort, then certainly for a real taste of Greek hospitality!!!!! Crete at its best in Strofilia Villas!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was meant to write this review a long time ago, but better late than never! We stayed with my husband at Strofilia Villas in July 2011 for 4 days. We are both Greek living in London. There are 3 important things for me when paying for accommodation: cleanliness, comfortable bed and a good breakfast! Strofilia Villas scored highly on all those and many more. The owner, Pantelis Sapounakis, was extremely helpful and welcoming. We thought we were staying in just a room when we walked into this beautifully renovated stone built space with modern and comfortable amenities selected with taste. We ate organic products every morning, relaxed in the peaceful Strofilia Villa and explored beautiful nearby beaches and other villages. Would definitely go back and also recommend it to family and friends!

Wow!! The hospitality shown by the Sapounakis family was incredible..a seemingly unlimited supply of fresh warm bread, honey, fruit, wine and raki..and the villas were stunning. We were really impressed by every aspect of our stay. Loved the stone and wood, the views and did I mention the hospitality? We felt like part of the family. A 30 minute drive from Chania, this little gem is well worth it.
