We have just returned from an amazing stay here. If you go to Crete stay here! You will have a truly memorable trip
Firstly, the house is exactly as pictured if not better in reality. We loved the authentic charm this Cretan home had. It was clean, spacious and very beautiful.
Secondly and most importantly what made this place phenomenal were the hosts, Maria and Stelios. They were amazing. They treated us like family and were so unbelievably welcoming. We arrived at 11.30pm to the house and Maria had a homemade fresh from the oven traditional Greek cheese pie ready to welcome us. They had our fridge stocked with wines, local alcohol and homemade limoncello. They gave us fresh eggs from their chickens and homemade olive oil from their olives just to name a few things. Throughout our time they were always available and extremely helpful.
Over the years we have done many home rentals but Maria and Stelios have been the best host we have ever had. They have given us amazing memories to take back from our trip to Crete. We hope to be back soon!
Our hosts could not have been more welcoming to us and kind to our children, greeting us with wine and home made cake and really helping our holiday get off to a great start. Maria showed me around rooms that were beautifully appointed and very clean, with flowers from the garden in each room as well, whilst the children made friends with their two little dogs who then came to say hello each morning. There was space for them to run around in, actual oranges and lemons on actual trees for them to gaze at and pick, rabbits and chickens to see as well, and a whole array of scents from the beautiful and very tranquil garden. For us, there were more amazing home made delights each day; small kindnesses like bringing us fresh bread; comfortable beds; a great range of cooking utensils had we felt energetic enough to cook; and quantities of coffee with a great coffee machine, which was as much as we managed. It could not have been a nicer way to relax into the Cretan way of life. Oh and I nearly forgot to mention, it's really quick to get into lovely Chania Town itself and to get (sadly) back to the airport.
