This was our second visit to St. Georges Retreat Village. Its an ideal holiday spot if you have young children. With only 9 villas on the site and two pools, one of which has a small baby pool, you're able to relax and often have the pool to yourself. There are plenty of local restaurants including a taverna which is... More

Fantastic villa in beautiful grounds and Stefanos and Roula are great hosts. We had a totally relaxing and fun week and hope to be able to go back with friends. I almost don't want to tell people about it incase it gets booked up ;)

My family and I have very recently returned from the retreat and what a fantastic experience it was. Before and during the stay I cannot praise the accommodation, location and two wonderful owners enough. I literally stumbled across the village whilst trying to piece together an itinerary for visiting this part of Crete. The minute I saw the accommodation I... More

We have just returned from St George's for our third visit. We love our visits. The villas are equipped to the highest of standards. We make good use of the bbq, buying meat in the local butchers. If your looking for a relaxing, family feel holiday this is the place for you. We will be returning again.

Picked at the last minute whilst we were travelling through Crete and so lucky they had room. Stefanos and Roula treated us like family friends rather than paying guests. The villa was built to a very high standard and had the most comfortable bed of our holiday. The views from the balcony were stunning. The pool was quiet and peaceful,... More

About 20 of our friends and family came to St. Georges Retreat over 2 years ago (was actually June 2014) to celebrate my 40th. Without a shadow of a doubt we all still reminisce about the best holiday we ever had. Roula and Stefanos' warm hospitality is the cherry on the cake to this paradise; they're fabulously friendly, kind, and... More

We would second the many complimentary things that everyone has already said about the villas and the hosts; Stefanos and Roula! They are unobtrusive yet always there with tasty snacks and helpful advice on the locality. This is evidenced by the many people who appear to find their way here by personal recommendation. The villas are furnished to a high... More

We have just spent two wonderfully relaxing weeks at this very special place. We are so pleased it was recommended to us. Some friends also came and it worked really well having separate villas for some privacy but still being able to spend lots of time together. When we arrived it was clear from the start that Stefanos and Roula... More

We stayed with our two children, ages 8 and 3 for the first two weeks of August and we are all agreed that this was our best family holiday to date; indeed we have just booked for next year. Stefanos and Roula are wonderful hosts, the villa was lovely with lots of little thoughtful touches and the most stunning sea... More

We travelled to Chania as part of a wedding party and St Georges Retreat was the perfect location for a relaxing holiday. We were greeted by Stefanos & Rula and made to feel like family and nothing was too much trouble, they even made us some local dishes. The villa was immaculate and well equipped, they had even left toys... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
About the Retreat: The Retreat Village is situated just below the famous St. George's Retreat cave. The complex benefits from extensive cultivated gardens, olive trees, a vineyard with its own wine press, and a large number of fruit trees, which the guests are free to taste. They are ideal for families and friends who would like to holiday together, but still maintain their private space. There are discounts available for groups who wish to book 3 or more villas. Contact the owner for details. There are two shared pools and a large BBQ area containing both a BBQ spit and traditional baking oven, while the tavern situated high up above the villas will take care of any appetite desire. The village of Kokkino Chorio is 5 minutes drive away while Plaka and Almyrida villages are a further 5 minutes drive each. ... more   less
