    Apokoronas is one of the most historic and beautiful areas of Crete, a landscape of wild mountains and fertile valleys. It was the place where emperors and lords of the Byzantine Empire would reside to enjoy the wealth and beauty of the land. In many places the Cretan architectural tradition developed from the 16th century onwards, has been influenced by Venetians.

    Lithos, a small traditional house dating from 1800 and open to visitors since 2006 is located in the fine village of Tzitzifes, with close access to roads to the north and the south of Crete. The village has a kafeneion and there are two traditional Cretan restaurants about 700 meters from the house.

    Lithos comprises two separate apartments built in local architectural style and offering all modern comforts. The use of natural...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This is a very small but attractive studio/appartment in a rural village. Ideal for an 'away from it all' holiday. Ideally one would book both appartments and go with friends or family as the set up is pretty intimate. We were lucky to have very nice neighbours for the duration of our one week stay.
The outside space is particularly nice and the small pool lovely - especially after a hot day sightseeing! It was nice to have a change of bed linen and towels half way through our stay too.
With a few more thoughtful touches - some batteries in the remote control for the air conditioning unit and something to combat the mosquitoes for example - this could be a much more comfortable place to stay.
On the downside there was no TV as advertised (though this did not bother us at all) no maps or information about the area, no outside grill as advertised and only 2 sunbeds for potentially 5 people, however our studio was not really big enough to sleep 3 comfortably.It was definitely...

We had a lovely stay at Tzitzifes, definitely. The house is tiny but you would live outside most of the time in the summer. The swimmingpool is great to unwind at the end of a hot day.
The fact that it was so good is probably that there was nobody in the adjacent studio for 6 days out of 7, though… not sure it would be as pleasurable if you had to share the outside space all the time - there are two garden tables but the people who arrived on our last day did not realise they had set their dinner on the table that had direct view in our studio, for example… The best setting would probably be if you want to book the two studios with friends, actually.
Also, it would probably be good for the owners to let you know when they will visit: we had the (good) surprise to find all the lien changed after 3 days, when we came back in late afternoon, but they also left us a new note inside the studio the next day when we were away… when I am on a holiday in a rented house as a couple, I...
