“Fantastic, peaceful spot”
Reviewed 19 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This was a great place to spend 5 days. It is very well outfitted with 3 bedrooms, 2 with 2 single beds, and one with a queen. there are also 2 single day beds. This would be a great place for families. The sun rises and sunsets are unbeatable. The beaches nearby are a bit busy and rocky, but they are far enough away not to disturb. We spent many hours just relaxing in the shade on the deck, listening to the waves crashing and enjoying the quiet. If you want to do some exploring a car is a must. There are some good grocery shops up on the main street, but it would be a long walk. The service was fantastic, there is a daily cleaning lady.

“Amazing & Relaxing holiday! ”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We spent a very relaxing week in Villa Kouvohori, it is in a great location right in front of the sea just as in the photos. We saw some fab sun rises & sunsets, ate some fantastic local foods in the Taverna's close by all about 10mins walk as was the beach.
Manolis is such an amazing host with his welcome we felt at home & his tips of where to explore the Island & restaurant suggestions were 10-10 made our holiday one to remember Thanks for being a great host!

“Amazing people and place”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Staying at the Villa Kouvohori for ten days was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. To be suddenly transported to a place of such great beauty and humanity was simply a gift. We will never forget the beautiful dinners on the porch listening to the sea lap against the shore or the visits by the owner Manolis when he came to check on us. He was always there with a joke and expansive warmth and humor. He made us feel that we were Cretans too and certainly we left a part of our hearts in this beautiful villa when we left. We cannot thank Manolis enough for sharing his Cretan outlook and heart with us. We will be back!!! This time- we will get the recipe for the wonderful fig cake your wife made for us. Thank you!!!
