“Everything better than expected - great house, location, host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed at the Private Stone house for 6 nights including my son, daughter-in-law and 7 month old baby. The house and location were exactly what we wanted - a villa in a small village that provided a "non-touristy" Greek experience. (We didn't want to feel like we were at a US sterile hotel.) The house had lots of character and provided adequate common room, which we needed with the baby and the fact that some of us had to spread out to do work on line. The pool are was perfect for lounging while others were working. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom plus one downstairs making the house really good for privacy. Whlie the house and view were very "Greek village", the bathrooms and kitchen are modern and clean which was important to me. Everything from bedding to A/C was better than expected and comfortable. Georgia was absolutely the most gracious hostess, she made a huge difference including helping us out with a transportation problem. (Love you, Georgia!) The village was also just right for us.. enough great tavernas and shopping while still being a quaint village experience. ( We had spent a couple of nights in Chania so already had the more intense nightlife and shopping available there). Kolymbari is close to the beaches cited as some of the best. All the beaches were very impressive but I personally loved Falassarna the best. Less crowded, easy to get to, great waves. just gorgeous. Would absolutely recommend and return.

“Wonderful vacation home in Kolymbari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This house itself is highly recommendable. It is nicely situated in the old part of the village without any car traffic. However the genuinely warm welcome of Georgia who is a wonderful host providing valuable tips for excursions made this vacation really specially. Thank you!

“amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

I would like to say we had the most wonderful holiday, the villa was everything it lived upto and more, the owner Georgia was the most warming and welcoming of hosts and extremely helpful regarding helping us with the local people and places, who again were the most friendly i have come across in my travels.
I would rcommend a car but taxis were just as easy to use and there is a regular bus service with air conditioning which was lovely.
The resturant were good but again ask the locals they know the best ones.
our time at Ariadni was peaceful ,quiet, and most of all very relaxing.

“Excellent séjour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
Google Translation

Madame Giorgia Atsalaki, notre hôtesse, nous a accueillis avec beaucoup de gentillesse et de savoir-vivre.Elle a été pendant toute la durée du séjour d'une amabilité exemplaire, prévenant le moindre de nos désirs et nous étant d'un sérieux soutien pour l'organisation de nos visites dans l'Ouest de la Crète.
La maison est très confortable. (prestations: draps et serviettes changées régulièrement, ménage) La petite piscine très appréciable , surtout le soir au retour de nos longues journées de visite.Le village de Kolimbari est retiré de la folie touristique de Platanias, mais un bon bar et un excellent restaurant , le "Palio Arhontiko" s'y trouvent. Un très joli monastère peut également être visité.
Kolimbari est très bien placé car proche de l'extrême côte Ouest époustouflante.
Une grande satisfaction à l'issue de ces vacances
