“A true paradise experience”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Our stay in George and Anna's house... where to start? We spent a week in Tris Ekklisies and it was simply perfect. Anna and George are a lovely couple that has managed to really create the feeling of paradise for us. First, the location: the house ís really at the end of the world, behind a mountain range, right at the beach, in a beautiful nature area where there is plenty of possibilities to hike, swim and snorkel. Every beach we found, we had for ourselves. The village is small and cozy, and is mainly a holiday village for the Cretans themselves. So no touristy bars and noise here. Then, the house: George and Anna have a beautiful, cozy, clean but most of all super comfy house, with all the necessities you can wish for and a lot of outdoor space: on the two patio's we enjoyed many breakfasts. Its equipped with everything you need: from coffee machine to bbq to hairdryer. When we arrived the place was filled with food: homemade dolma's, pastries, raki and olive-oil, but also homegrown fruits and veggies and a lot of food in stock so we could survive the first days without having to leave the village. Contact with Anna and George was very easy, we would almost every time immediately find a reply in our inbox when we had a question (super fast internet!). We felt they were there for us, without actually being with us. All together we can recommend this place to anyone who is looking for peace and nature, to find rest, happiness, sun and beaches. We for sure want to come back!

Pascal, his lovely wife and their beautiful little princess are people you don’t need to know for long to tell their quality. They’re easy to communicate, smiling, kind, appreciative and clean. They left our home in perfect condition and caused absolutely no problem at all. Which host wouldn’t like to have guests like these?

France and Henri was a couple we liked very much. They have nice personalities and they're very friendly. Being hosts themselves it was only natural for them to be some of the best guests we had. They came with their hands full of gifts from their country, communication with them was effortless, they respected the house more than a host could wish and they left it in excellent condition. Thank you France and Henri for such a pleasant hosting experience!
