We have just arrived home today from a week at Lia Sofia and where to start, the owner Giorgious (sorry about the spelling) and his family are lovely friendly people we felt welcome the moment we walked down the path to the apartments. We had a one bedroom apartment with sea view and the views were amazing the sea view... More

We stayed for just over 3 weeks early in the season and it was great - very quiet and close to bars and restaurants. The apartment was very clean and Georgios (sorry, not sure of the spelling!) and his family made sure we had everything we needed. The balcony was massive and the place was cleaned regularly along with lots... More

The best hotel in Stalis. Giorgos and his family the best people under the Cretan sun. They are able to dispel all the clouds. I recommend visiting Lia Sofia in September has its secret charm. Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the Cretan rain.

We decided to go here because the reviews were so good even though we felt the photos didn't look that nice... It is much nicer in person. The owner is very nice and let us drop off food in the fridge early in the day and offered to have our room ready quickly (even though we were so early). This... More

The location is perfect - this is our 3rd year running going back and already checking flights for next year. George and Costas are lovely and wouldn't consider anywhere else in Stalis. My husband loves the homemade wine from Costas and always enjoys the sample waiting for us when we arrive. Cheers George and Costas and see you again September... More

Excellent holiday. Just returned from two weeks at Lia Sofia. Owners very friendly and helpful. Spotlessly clean and towels and linen changed regularly. Excellent location so close to beach and restaurants but peaceful at night. Supermarket opposite. George arranged taxi transfers at a reduced rate. Lovely wine and cake in room on arrival. Will definitely be returning next year.
