I very rarely put reviews on of where I have been and its been a bit delayed putting this on but I promised myself I would take the time as my friends and I had such a wonderful few days here. The ambiance of the whole place, the way the apartments are and the friendliness of our hosts cant be... More

The villas are perfectly positioned with fantastic views on both sides of a ridge and strategically placed to catch the morning and evening sun. No photos can do the studios justice. The only noise is the sound of occasional goat bells. Jeroen and Ria make you incredibly welcome. The studios are well appointed and very comfortable. Walking with Jeroen guarantees... More

Great hospitality, a warm welcome, Ria and Jeroen make you feel at home. Great studios, clean and well furnished. Situated in a wonderfull landscape with olivetrees and flocks of sheep. Highly recommended if you are looking for an original experience of this Island.

My husband and I needed a break, so we stayed one week at Footscapes of Crete. Wow! What an experience! Three beautiful studio's in a fantastisch area, near the little village Kastellos. Between the mountains, with a spectaculair view. In the middle of the Greek life and culture, away from the crowded toeristic cities, but also just a few miles... More

This is the real Crete. Away from the bustle of the towns, Kastellos is rural yet still close enough to be handy for Rethymnon and the supermarkets and tavernas of the village of Armeni. Kastellos even has its own rustic taverna which will supply more than you can eat or drink for what seem like too few euros. Footscapes' Dutch... More

From the moment we were welcomed by new owners Ria and Jeroen at Footscapes we had a wonderful time. Perched on a hill above great countryside we had views both to the sea and mountains. The studio is well equipped with real cooker and fridge, and we understood the decor and furniture has recently been refreshed. It's great place for... More

We booked this holiday together with another couple, who had hired a car. Our plan was to do a mixture of guided and self-guided walks, and also do some some exploring further afield. Jeroen and Ria delighted us from the start with the warmth of their hospitality, and make our week something that we shall treasure. The studio apartments were... More

My friend and I spent a week here in April. What a lovely warm welcom from Jeroen and Ria. Excellent welcome packs in our studio apartments and fantastic views of snow-covered peaks in both directions. The apartments are comfortable and well-appointed, breakfast could be ordered from Ria and was delivered to our accommodation on a tray by Jeroen. We also... More

We arrived to Footscapes 5. of April and this year it was too early: both the weather and the studio were cold. Should have had woolen socks with us. Otherwise everything was very nice - new owners Jeroen and Ria where friendly and helpful and the neighborhood was perfect for hiking, which was why we had arrived there. Jeroen gave... More

Jeroen and Ria are the charming new Dutch owners of Footscapes, and we were their first visitors. The hilltop location of their modern studio apartments a few kilometres outside of Rethymnon is fabulous, with breathtaking views all around – so you can watch the sun rise over breakfast from the table by the front door and see it descend over...
