nice place
Very nice house in the fantastic mountains of the South of Crete. The surroundings are beautiful, located in a very small village. The only minus was the wind the second week. But overall great holiday, to be repeated.

Great place
Great place ! Nous sommes une famille de 5 et avons Passe un excellent séjour dans la villa . Vue absolument magnifique sur la mer et la montagne. Très belle maison, confortable, décorée avec goût. Très bien équipée. Les premières plages sont à 10min en voiture et sont vraiment belles. Les premières petites villes pour faire des courses alimentaires sont à environ 20 min (Agia GALINI, spili). Équipe Etouri très très réactive, aux petits soins... Endroit très calme, sauvage et apaisant... Seule petite réserve : si vous avez des enfants en très bas âge, la piscine peut être une difficulté car elle n’est pas fermée ... mais pour résumer , notre séjour fut idyllique !

Fantastisches Ferienhaus
Eine wirklich wundervolle Unterkunft. Wir haben alles so angetroffen wie beschrieben. Das Haus liegt zwar an einer Durchfahrtsstraße aber die stört nicht wirklich, da es ein bischen erhöht liegt und die Terasse deshalb nicht einsehbar ist. Dafür genießt man die wundervolle Aussicht auf Berge und Meer. Es ist alles vorhanden was man braucht. Zu den Stränden und in die nächste Stadt in der man gut essen kann sind es ca. 20 Minuten. Die Lage läßt viele schöne Ausflüge ans Meer in Schluchten (wir haben Geier gesehen) und zu historischen Städten zu. Die Kids waren begeistert von dem tollen Wlan und Fernseher;-) direkt am Pool.

Amazing sunsets ....
The villa is located at a beautiful spot high above the Agios Pavlos bay. The bay can be reached by car in 10 minutes. Watching the sunset from the terrace of the villa is wonderful. The house is furnished in a modern and elegant style. It provides everything we needed. Also the kitchen is equipped very well. The house is located directly at a small road which was not busy at all during our stay. The next bigger village Agia Galini can be reached in about 20 minutes. Forenoon there is shadow at the terrace. End of october the pool was already too cold for us. The landlord and the management are very friendly and helpful.

Amazing home, overlooking the mountains and sea in a beautiful, peaceful location.
The location is amazing, with views of the mountains and the sea, and great sunsets at night. We had such a relaxing time and loved southern Crete. The home is done to a very high standard, unlike some rental homes that are kitted out minimally, with no personal effects and using cheap items, this is the opposite. Everything from the sun loungers and sofas to the dining table, dishwasher and washing machine were great quality products and the beds were really comfortable. It felt very homely and included nice little extras such as bathrobes, soap, shower gel, dishwasher tablets and washing machine liquid which many rentals do not provide. The kitchen had everything that you would need - all the usual items and also a coffee machine, a juicer to make fresh OJ, teapot, lots of different types of glasses for any kind of drinks, and there is a gas BBQ outside. It also had air conditioning and good wifi. As it is in such a peaceful location, the nearest shop is 20 minutes drive so you need to make sure you get all the food items you need, to save too many trips in the car. Or take advantage of the shopping service so that its all waiting for you when you arrive. The nearest beach is just a 10 minute drive which has sunloungers and umbrellas and a few beach cafes. Rethymno is under an hours drive and was a lovely city to explore. The owner greeted us on arrival and the customer service was great. The etouri team who manage the property contacted us to see if there was anything they could help us with and were extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Modernes Haus mit malerischem Ausblick
Das Haus liegt ca. 6 km vom Agios Pavlos Strand entfernt in den Bergen mit einem malerischen Ausblick auf das Meer. Ein Auto wird dringend empfohlen, sowohl zum Einkaufen, als auch zu den Stränden. Agia Galini (ca. 17 km entfernt) ist ein nettes Städtchen mit vielen Tavernen und einem Strand. Das Haus ist modern eingerichtet mit Aircondition und WLAN. In der Küche befinden sich alle nötigen Utensilien nebst einem Gasgrill auf der Terrasse. Leider hatten wir eine Zeit erwischt, in der häufig starke Winde das Sitzen auf der schönen Terrasse etwas einschränkte. Die Straße vor dem Haus haben wir überhaupt nicht als störend empfunden. Alles in allem bietet das Haus Möglichkeiten für einen entspannten Urlaub. Das Team von Etouri war sehr hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend und per Telefon oder WhatsApp sehr gut erreichbar.

Excellent service, great location!
The location on he hill is great. The most amazing sun sets ever... Very comfortable house with everything you can wish for. You need a car because the nearest shops/bakery are 20-25 minutes drive and back. But the house has a fridge and freezer. Beatiful small beaches are at 10 minutes drive (Agios Pavlos, Triopetra).

Magnifique maison!
Nous avons passé une semaine dans cette superbe maison. Elle dispose d'une superbe vue surplombant la mer. Tout est fait pour le grand confort, décoration de très bon goût, piscine très agréable. L'agence et tout le personnel font tout pour que les hôtes se sentent bien. Le propriétaire est d'une extrême gentillesse, il a été très attentionné avec nous. Ce sont les prestations digne d'un grand hotel mais avec l'avantage d'être dans une location où nous pouvons être indépendant : - courses avant notre arrivée : un grand plus ! - ménage en cours de séjour : ce qui est vraiment très appréciable. - aide lorsque j'ai eu besoin d'une adresse d'une station pour réparer les pneus Les plages aux alentours sont magnifiques et à moins de 10 mins de la maison. Je recommande vivement cette adresse, vous y passerez un excellent séjour.

About the neighbourhood
Our villa is located on a foothill of a mountain, in a traditional and peaceful village of Kato Saktouria in southern Crete, offering tremendous views of Libyan sea and surrounding mountains. The area around the village is totally in nature and quiet and you will be able to relax and feel “away from it all” from the first moment of your arrival. It is one of the best locations if you seek to stay away from the tourist areas of Crete and also visit the amazing natural beaches of south Crete such as Agios Pavlos, Agia Galini, Triopetra and many more! One of the closest big village with range of amenities such as shops, bakeries, taverns and supermarkets is the picturesque fishing village of Agia Galini, around 15 minutes drive from the villa. Additionally the well known village of Spili which also has all the amenities and a health centre is located around 20 minutes drive away. If you like adventure, the location also offers the advantage of exploring the unique natural environment of Crete’s inland. Explore the villages, interact with the locals, find taverns with real Cretan cuisine and products, walk in the gorges around or find some totally isolated beaches! We will be happy to make you suggestions and directions for places which only locals know about them.
