We stayed here in July. The Villas are perfect - beautifully equipped to a very high standard, furnishings are excellent. Views are beautiful. Peace and Quiet abound. This place is relaxation heaven. Stella is a wonderful host - she thinks of everything and her standards are exemplary. This is the best holiday accomodation I have stayed, anywhere in Europe and...

We stayed in one of the three 'traditional apartments' which should more properly be called studios. Inside, they comprise just a small bedroom with a basic kitchen area and a tiny bathroom. However they are fully equipped with kettle, toaster, coffee maker and air conditioning. Each apartment has a large terrace with chairs and tables and an outside food preparation...

Stella opened the traditional villas last year in Kato Zakros. Built in traditional cretan style by the owners the villas are beautiful and very comfortable. Five villas are availabe, two of which are 'superior'. All have fantastic views of the Kato Zakros bay and the Gorge of the Dead. Nearer to the beach than the apartments and studios they are...

We stayed early July at Stella's in the apartment (which actually should be called bungalow) called Κρήτη (Crete). The pictures which are on the website cannot describe the beauty of the place. Our bungalow was the last one and hidden so you have a complete privacy. Every single detail made this place heaven on earth. When we arrived we were...

We stayed in the traditional apartments for four nights in June. Lives up to it's high reputation as does Stella who could not have been more helpful and took time to make us feel welcome. Many people have called this a paradise and they were not exaggerating. We called it Shangri La as it was easy to forget all the...

We stayed in one of the new Terra Minoika apartments just off the road down into Kato Zakros so this review relates to these and not the other apartments they have. These villas/apartments are constructed to a very standard using local stone and wood but in a modern way and with many nice decorative touches. Possibly the most beautiful buildings...

I spent a magical three days at Stella's in the early spring. I stayed in Minos and because it was early in the season I had the whole place to myself. Stellas is a hidden treasure set in beautiful garden surroundings on a hillside above the sea. You can lie in one of her hammocks and all you hear are...

I stayed in Stella’s Minos apartment for 9 days. The apartment was small but comfortable and very clean. In the kitchen annex there was everything you may need for cooking and dining: two electric hotplates, small fridge, microwave oven and all necessary utensils and silverware. Outside the reception area there was another fridge with some basic products like bread, butter,...

Excellent place and location for a peaceful holiday. 150m walk from the Death valley trek entrance and 3 min from the Beach. Stella really nice and helpful to give you all infos you need for best places to visit around. May be more housework in the room would be perfect (once in 5 days slightly weak).

We stayed for 2 nights in apartment 'Zakros' at the end of March/beginning of April. The apartments are set among shady trees with a small kitchen corner inside the apartment and a gas cooker and table outside on the terrace. There is no table inside, so winter eating might be a bit chilly, but we were fine. The inside of...
