“Fantastic getaway in the hills.”
Reviewed 11 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

people found this review helpful

We stayed for two weeks in early May, and loved the instant quiet and seclusion of the house. Manya the owner is really friendly and informative, welcoming and generous. She brought us delicious home cooked Crete food, and introduced us to scrummy cheeses and oranges! She took great care with the house which was always spotless. It is a very well furnished house and the kitchen has everything you need in it for comfortable home cooking.

May is a fantastic time for wild flowers, and migrating birds which we watched from the house as well as in the valleys and hills around. There are lovely walks straight from the house into the hills and olive groves, or many start a short drive away. The local village of Adrini has a great little taverna serving really good local food, which you can then walk off along the gorge to the coast.

We thought the house was a lovely place for two of us, but equally would be a fantastic place to stay with friends or family.

“Fantastic get away from it all holiday!”
Reviewed 14 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Fantastic location, spectacular views, great hospitality and an amazing place to get away from it all. The villa was superb, impeccably clean and a perfect base to explore this wild corner of Crete.
