I visited koutsounari traditional cottages last summer and of course I wanted to go back. So I went back again 2 times already this year. The location is great, next to paradise beaches and nice taverns. The access is also very easy by car. There are no words to describe the cottages! Renovated traditional Cretan houses, each one of them with a terrace with a view to the sea or to the cliffs! The hostess has done an amazing job reviving the small houses and she was inspired by her artistic nature and class. Each house is independent and suitable for singles, couples, friends, families, who can cook if they wish there or enjoy a nice drink on the terraces or even relax to the taverns near by. The hostess herself is extremely nice and helpful. I really could not ask for anything more :) I will definitely go back again.

When I'm travelling I like to get to know the locals, to stay inside the villages, to feel the real life style of the place. In Koutsounari Traditional Cottages we had an experience that combine between traditional way of life to a very comfortable holiday. We had an amazing view, just few minutes drive from a stunning beach, the cottage was fully equipped with more than you can imagine. The loundry smell of the towels and bed sheets made you want to hug it and the ancient room was well maintained. Everything was perfect, but above all I'll never forget the kind hospitality of Ioanna and Dora,her mom. They make you feel like a guest and not like a client. In 2 days, we allready felt like family. I strongly recommend this place It's unique and outstanding. Thank you for the best hospitality ever!

My dearest Atalya, thank you so much for sharing your appreciation on our family property Koutsounari Traditional Cottages. Your comments are so touching and are the best reward for us. We take care personally of all the aspects that matter to our guests. Like the freshness of the towels, that we wash them in-house, with the same care we take for ours. I am delighted to read that you have enjoyed the beautiful view, the comfort and atmosphere that this place offers. I love to see your photos and the gentle way you set your eyes on our property. It is always a great pleasure to host you and Roi. Can't thank you enough, Atalya mou. All the best for your new project! Warm regards, from Dora as well
