“A wonderful spot”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

There are 5 rooms, we stayed for a week in one with a balcony (not this hot tub one) with a view of the mountains. This is a great spot for exploring south west Crete, We liked the walking, Lissos, Samaria (the big one) and Irinis - take plenty of water! Also trips to Paleochora and Elafonisi. Managed a lot of laying on beaches too. You need a car. Managed by Flora who is most welcoming and helpful and makes tasty breakfast and an evening meal if wanted. Sougia has good restaurants and bars.

“Ideal apartment for exploring S Western Crete”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

Clean, bright well-designed group of apartments in a converted/extended old farmhouse building. Very attentive staff/owners (thanks George and Marianne)- both are friendly and generous. Many options for walks nearby and the beach town at Sougia is close by- great for greek food, sunbathing and fantastic swimming. Moni and Sougia are very quiet- more for couples looking for a relaxing/romantic week away than anything else, but that was what we were after!

“Stunning apartment, beautiful location, excellent management”
Reviewed May 1, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The perfect get away from it all location, the perfect example of the 'real' Crete. The apartments are spectacular with amazing views over the mountains. The manager Marianna was friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
A car is essential and good walking boots highly recommended.

“Idyllic Crete away from organised tourism”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed with our one-year-old child here for 8 nights in August. We absolutely loved it. The apartment we stayed in (one of four in a similar vein) is crisp and contemporary, yet calm and cool in its decor. The owner has an obvious eye for detail. This was also evident in the equipment provided for our stay and the welcome we received. Katarina, our host for the duration of our stay, was extremely kind and helpful in providing us with necessities such as laundry, luxuries such as raki & melon and useful tips on where to visit and where to eat.
The apartment was cleaned every day with fresh linen and towels every other day. The air-conditioning kept our little one pleasantly cool at night. The large, comfortable bed (with ultra-stylish artistic headboard) gave us a good-night's sleep. The fig tree provided us with fresh tasty treats every day!
A car is a must for getting around - the beach at Sougia (5-10 mins drive down the mountain road) is superb and uncluttered with sun loungers. There is a good selection of beachfront tavernas which all deliver a layed-back feel-good vibe with food & drink.
If you're looking for privacy and a feeling of utter relaxation in spectacular surroundings and you have a vague sense of adventure, then the Monastery Estate should be on your list. If you want a beach holiday with hordes of tourists, you'll probably be looking elsewhere.

Spent a few days in this magnificent guesthouse. Excellent decoration, traditional style with spicy interior elements. Fully equipped Kitchen, ipad, nespresso coffe machine. Although the weather was not great, we spent so much time in the sunbeds admiring the amazing mountainview. Very nice. Very very recommended.
