“A True Gem, Fantastic Villa in a beautiful part of Crete”

We have just returned from two fantastic relaxing weeks at St George's Retreat where we holidayed with another family. Both villas were beautifully appointed with everything you could need. The whole complex was extremely clean and well kept and the hosts Stefanos and Roula made you feel very welcome indeed. There was a welcome pack on arrival so there was no need to dash straight to the supermarket, even some delicious home made marmelade and olive oil! Thoughtful touches in the villa, fresh flowers, toiletries etc. made for a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The position of the villas provided beautiful views of the sea and mountains. My three boys loved it there especially the pool. We have stayed in many villas over the years and this is by far the best. We were very sorry to leave and look forward to coming back!

“Very relaxing setting with modern, well appointed villas.”

Our landlord and landlady, Stephanos and Roula, were very friendly, and brought us some wine and food treats. The appartments were clean, modern and well equipped. The villas were partially air conditioned. The site included nine villas, two pools, a children's play area and plenty of fig and olive trees. The cicada insects were quite noisy (high summer) but I got used to the noise and didn't notice it much after a couple of days. The location had a feeling of spaciousness and, being at a slight elevation above sea level, the air felt quite fresh and not overbearing with the heat. There were plenty of friendly restaurants and places to see.

“A beaultiful location with warm hospitality.”
Reviewed 6 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Having booked at the last minute, and chosen with the advice of this web-site, I was extremely impressed by the quality of the villa, the beautiful location and the high standards of the site. Stephanos and Roula were firendly and helpful, with tthe unexpected treats of home made wine and food. Our villa was spacious, clean and tastefully presented and yet also managed to hold onto some rustic charm and character. This retreat has been carefully planned and offers guests beautiful views, tranquility and pool side relaxation. We had a great time.

“Fantastic accommodation and truly amazing hospitality from the owners”
Reviewed 10 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We found that the accommodation, facilities and location (amazing views) at St Georges Retreat were perfect in every way. We stayed for 1 week in June with our young family and the owners (Stafanos and Roula) hospitality made our stay a holiday to remember! We have a rule that we don't go back to the same place twice but I feel this may be broken for the first time! I will be recommending St Georges Retreat to friends and family so that they can also share in this experience!
