“Charming Kreta Natur”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

First of all we would like to thank Maria & George for creating such a wonderful holiday experience - it was everything we wanted & more. As other reviewers have indicated it is a haven of relaxation & the perfect place to recharge the batteries & de-stress. The rooms are a good size, the beds are comfortable & the view from our room (4) was lovely. George has spent considerable time & thought creating lovely surroundings & the barbeque area is fab. Maria is a wonderful cook but George can also create a mean pizza. It is a perfect location for a 'get away from it all' holiday but the town of Hersonissos is only a relatively short walk away if you prefer a livelier nightlife. As it is a relatively small complex of apartments, the atmosphere is friendly & more intimate & we have met many lovely people who we hope to stay in touch with. For me, this was a perfect holiday & Maria & George helped to make it so - we will definitely be returning & would not hesitate to recommend Kreta Natur to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday with the personal touch. Maria remember 'You're sexy & you know it' :) xx See you next year, Frank & jacqueline

Room Tip: Room 4 has a balcony & a lovely view of the sea

As a trio of young girls we wanted a more relaxing break than your typical twenty-somethings and Kreta Natur matched our expectations and more. Maria and George have created a fantastic get-away, a haven outside Hersonissos which is a must to visit. From the landscaping which George has obviously tended to greatly over the years, Maria goreous Grecian cuisine and the lovely accommodation and pool, the environment definitely has a Zen feeling. However although tranquil there us an element of care-free playfulness, complimented by Maria's playful character and the Wednesday BBQ with Greek dancing for afters, it is indeed a lovely place to truly relax. The larger town Hersonissos is a Coastal walk away which we walked to daily, for exercise and the beautiful panoramas, however taxis are equally cheap and accessible. The resort also benefits from it's size, as there are few apartments attributing to the personal family feel. I would definitely recommend it for anyone seeking a relaxing and indulgent holiday, and excellent value for money. Thank you to Maria and George for making it so memorable xxxx

We had just the most amazing holiday, so relaxing. Maria and George are 2 very special people, they go out of their way to help you and made our holiday. Maria is the most amazing cook, and we had many evenings tasting her wonderful food. A must to anyone who stays here. The holiday is for anyone who is looking for a total chilled holiday, relaxing in a quiet surrounding which are so pretty. There are some lovely walks into New Hersonissos and the Old Town. We hired a car for 2 days and saw so many lovely places and gorgeous beaches - George will give you any help with the best places to visit. We met some lovely people which made our holiday.
Will definitely go back, can't wait.

We had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Maria is an amazing cook. The food far exceeded the standard of the local restaurants and hospitality was fantastic. This is a resort for clientele who respect their fellow holidaymakers and not for those who want to consume excessive amounts of alcohol who we would recommend go to the larger resorts in places, such as Malia. Overall, however, the holiday was brilliant and we assume that people who are more suited to Malia will not be returning. Can't wait to come back again with the rest of our family in August next year!!!

Room Tip: Be aware that there are no twin rooms available.

kreta natur is a quiet place in anissaras, close to the night life of hersonissos (5-7 minutes by car). it is more suitable for family or couples beacause of the calmness. the owners are very gentle, friendly and in the evening you can find them sitting at the pool, ready to serve you a cold beer or share stories.

the rooms are nice, the style simple but modern and there is a super market 5 minutes away on foot.

the breakfast is served at the pool and on demand. which means that if you want to have breakfast, you go there, you find the lady, you ask for breakfast and she makes it for you. it is nice but they lady does not explain what the breakfast is consisted of, so don't just ask for bread and butter, because that is what she will bring. lol

My husband and I stayed at the Kreta Natur apartments from June 23rd to July 7th. What a truly lovely oasis in Crete! As everyone else says Maria and George are fantastic hosts, friendly, amusing, adding that personal touch to your holiday. Maia learns everyones names and called my husband Mr James "Bond" and I was Mrs Alison! We stayed in a first floor apartment with a sea view. It was a lovely apartment, really comfortable bed, very clean although kitchen facilities were limited but enough to prepare breakfast and lunch. The ground floor rooms were cooler, darker and did not have a sea view. The highlight of the week was the BBQ. Great food, great fun and a good opportunity to meet and bond with other holiday makers. Watch out though, you won't get away without joining in the dancing!! The grounds were beatiful. George has spent many years designing and adding to them with his very special rock collection which he will happily give you a tour of. The pool was simply gorgeous. Shade or sun lovers alike couldn't fault it. Super, comfortable loungers that you don't want to move from and I have to admit we felt so lazy and reaxed we hardly wanted to do much else!
The only downside is the location. If you don't hire a car the immediate resort is very limited. There are some supermarkets and a few restaurants, the best we found was Saradari which was about 15 minute walk away. Gret food and a romantic view over the sea.Take a taxi to the old town (12 euros each way) for a more authentic greek experience than you will get in the main strip.
Going home was like leaving family after the hospitality of Maria and George and I would be back in an instant if I could! Probably have to wait til nexy year though!

Room Tip: Choose a first floor room which is light and airy with views of the sea.
