“Wonderful Stay in Matheos Apartments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Just returned (yesterday) from 2 weeks staying in the Matheos Apartments in Piskopiano. Accommodation was excellent and well situated for the many tavernas in the local villages. Helen, George and Kostas were wonderful hosts, very friendly and always ready to help. The apartments were spacious and clean and the beds were comfortable - we slept like logs and we are sure that the Ouzo and Metaxa consumed at the friendly bar had nothing to do with it! The BBQ night was very pleasant with lots of tasty food and drink. Kostas does a brilliant job manning the bar and is a great authority on British football - although he was unable to predict Norwich beating Arsenal on Saturday! Would gladly recommend Matheos to anybody or to return again next year.

Had a great time at Matheos last week in June first week in July,nice clean apartments and well looked after by the owners Helen George and Kostas,
a realy nice place to stay,
a good atmosphere around the pool bar at night after returning back from your evening meal, Kostas gave us quite a insight into Greek Mythology,
would recommend a stay at the Matheos family apartments.

Well, what can I say! I have stayed in quite a few hotels in Crete but never had such a friendly, welcoming or enjoyable stay. Generally I would use a hotel just as somewhere to sleep and explore my favourite island from, but Helen and her lovely family made such a warm genuine effort to include their guests that we found ourselves spending quite a few nights drinking, eating and chatting with the other guests. The pool is small but ideal for a cooling dip and the hosts will happily lug your sunbed to just the right location for you, phone you a pizza, recomend you a place to eat, and even pop out to fetch your nan a pair of knitting needles!
The breakfasts were perfectly cooked, no matter what time of day you asked for one and the weekly BBQ was beautifully cooked, with a great veggie option and there was more than enough even my Husband couldn't manage the third plate full he was offered, and he can eat for england!
If a small freindly place to stay where you are more than just a number to the staff this is the ideal place to stay in Crete and I shall definatly break my golden rule and book the Matheos for my next visit to my favourite island.

Room Tip: the upper rooms at the back have lovely views of the sea

My husband and I have had the most fanatstic time at these lovely apartments, nothing is ever to much trouble. Helen, George and Kostas treat you as part of the family which is lovely.All Studios and apartments are of a very high standard and are excellent. The BBQ evening is great fun with plenty of food and drink. You cannot fail to have a fantastic holiday and meet a lot of lovely people. There are plenty of really excellent Tavernas to try in walking distance.

Thank you for a lovely holiday and see you in 2013 :)

These apartments are situated in a very pretty village with an excellent choice of restaurants. The Rooms are scrupulously clean and although basic are perfectly adequate. The pool area is small and very friendly. Helen and George, the owners are most helpful and keen to ensure that guests are happy in every way. If you are looking for a small complex with personal attention then Matheos will deliver. The two villages adjacent to Piskopiano, Old Hersonissos and Koutouloufari are within a short walking distance and offer many excellent restaurants. Our favourites were Meze, Gevsi and Rahati. The latter for its excellent coffee and cakes also English breakfast. However Helen at the apartments also does a very good English!

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the pool area which suited us fine as we felt part of the activity but if you wa...

Believe it all !! the family, the friendliness, the standard of the accommodation, everything!!

Our first floor apartment overlooked the pool but it was not noisy in any way. the beds were comfy, the kitchen was extremely well equipped for self catering including mugs and egg cups and anyone who is a frequent greek traveller will know that is a nice touch !! And a cork screw !!!
The bathroom was a good size and like the rest of the accommodation and the whole place, spotlessly clean. Katie does a fabulous job.
The bar area is very pleasant and well stocked, and there is a good range of light snacks.
the pool is small, clean and delightful. Standing in it gazing up at the hills behind.....wish we were there now !!
I had a peek at the first floor studio and that looked very nice, fab view of the sea. i didnt see the lower floor studio rooms but you can take it from the review written below that these are nice. The patio areas seen from above looked particulary cool and inviting. They look out onto an olive grove.
So what more to say, well Piskopiano is very sweet, there are 2 mini markets within view from the main road, a couple of bars and some very very nice tavernas. The walk into the next village is a mere 10 minutes and here you will find even more very very nice tavernas and oh my it is so pretty, especially at night when it is lit up, as are the hills behind.

Magic. Thank you Helen and George and all. We came as strangers, hope you agree we left as friends xxxxx See you in 2013, same time, same place ....

Have just returned from a weeks stay at matheos apartments in piskopiano. What a great place to stay. We had a studio which was spotlessly clean. A lovely terrace for sitting out with olive trees at the bottom. The studio was very spacious and had everything you need for a self catering holiday. We had the room cleaned every day by the very friendly Katie and nothing was too much trouble. Helen, George and family made us very welcome and are the friendliest hosts you could wish for. A BBQ is held on a Tuesday which is a fab night. Loads to eat and too much to drink. The villages of piskopiano and koutalafari are beautiful with lots if lovely restaurants. The matheos appts are in an ideal location being in a nice and quiet location yet just a short walk from the restaurants. Met some lovely friendly people and would recommend it to anyone. Wish we were still there . Chris and Simon
