  • Maria's apartment was super clean, the communication was impeccable and her sister helped us with everything we needed. We recommend it 100%

    Daniel2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's studio is the best choice for a couple or a solo traveller, especially if you prefer to stay in the mountain. The place is located in Kefali and it's only 20mins away by car from Elafonisi Beach. The view from the terasse is amazing for your morning coffee or evening drink :) The studio had all needed amentities for a perfect stay. The only thing I'd recommend is to write down some more information for the guests like closest grocery shop (which I found in Vathi) or best taverns/bakeries around and anything else that might be useful.

  • Our stay was short but very enjoyable. The place is small but well-organized and well-furnished. The view from the balcony is perfect to see the sun setting in the valley. And when it has, you can still enjoy the small village life!

    Susie2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely convenient, clean place on a way to Pelachora or Elafonissi beach.Maria's sister Dora was very helpful.Thank you!

    Beata2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's apartment is super clean and in a great location. The view from the apartment and the parking lot is spectacular. Having the air conditioning was a great help. Panaroma Tavern just across the apartment is a great place to have good food with a view.

  • Very well. Very nice place We recommend this accommodation Ninon and Maxime

    Maxime2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in this apartment for 2 weeks. The host was very kind and honored us with local products. The room is small but has everything you need, stove, oven, sink, air conditioning, large fridge and terrace with table. The room has some low spots where if you are tall you touch it with your head. The location of the apartment is excellent, it is only 15 minutes from elafonisi and about 40 mimutes from kissamos. Highly recommended

  • Fantastik place and a very nice and freindly coupe

    Anette2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a short but very restful and peaceful stay with Maria. I think we arrived truly on holiday at Maria's place. And this was despite 35kts wind all day and night! We enjoyed the little village of Kefali too, good local food and hospitality all round!

    Philip2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Maria is very reactive, and we share local addresses, the accommodation is very well equipped, we had a very good night. Only 15/20 minutes from Elafonisi but I recommend the beach Kedrodados 10 minutes from Elafonisi which is much less touristy.

    Quentin2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice stay ! View is breathtaking. Maria answers super quickly. I recommend it !

    Théo2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very welcome, the accommodation is very complete and very pleasant. Great view. The breakfast offered is great.

    Charlotte2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little apartment in the mountains. Maria bought us breakfast and placed it in the apartment before we arrived. Also maria gave us some recommendations what we can do in the area and the beach ahead told us about was really nice.

    Tim2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's place is much more luxurious than you can tell from the photos - a really big, fresh apartment with powerful air con, comfortable beds and all creature comforts at hand, and a fabulous view to the sea into the bargain. While you are only a short and very scenic drive from Crete's most beautiful beaches, the area itself is absolutely magical, on the edge of the green, chestnut growing area of the mountains. The village is charming, and nice and cool in comparison to the coast. Make sure to visit the church here and the two in Vathi, round the corner. Best of all are Maria and her lovely toddler Despina, who charmed us all and made us hope to return.

  • We spend a week in Ioannis home and we really enjoyed this beautiful and peaceful place. The swimming pool and the view on the mountain are really nice, if you are looking for a quiet place to relax go for it ! It is a bit far from everything except Elafonissi beach (we went to Fallassarna beach, Bali’s Beach, the Samaria Gorge amongs other things) but it worth it.

    Caroline2019-10-05T00:00:00Z

    Ellafos Traditional Living is a unique complex of 4 Traditional Cretan style houses that will make your holidays unforgettable .We believe when you travel it is a far amazing experience and this Family owned complex will give you more than you expect!
    If you are planning visiting an exotic place we have already planed one for you...Ellafos Traditional Living is located to the world famous Ellafonisi Beach. Pinkish sand, shallow water and the view of a georgeous island, that you can go on foot, are some of the unique characteristics of this amazing place! This is the destination that you should visit this summer.
    Ellafos Traditional Living is in the village of Perivolia.The village has a Kafenio(Traditional Cretan cafe) that you can taste local products. 9 klm from the Village is Elafonisi a small islet in the southwest of Crete. Linked to the mainland by a shallow reef, vathousto much a measure that allows the passage easily, especially when the sea is calm. The place is beautiful and perfect for enjoying nature.There you can find also many restaurants.
  • The accommodation of Dimosthenis, is very beautiful, is in a beautiful gorge, with the beach very close and a haven of peace.

    Alma2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time staying in Elafonisi and this AirBnb was amazing choice for us. While it was tricky to find, the place is simply fantastic! It had plenty of space, wonderful decor, really beautiful outdoor patio area, amazing host who provided us help and advice when needed. The AirBnb is really tucked away from all the noise in such a beautiful yet convenient location. Short drive to the incredible Elafonisi beach and multiple other locations, including less known but totally worth visiting Kedrasos beach. With a little bit of local knowledge, the area offers everything that's needed on holiday. We fell in love with this place and area and we are thinking to come again next year!

    Yev2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place tucked away in a quiet village. Mary and her puppy were provided a great welcoming and had great advice on places to go and see.

    Kevin2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Truly a little piece of heaven on Earth! We really enjoyed our stay at Ellafos Traditional Living. Mary is a super friendly and thoughtful host, who gave great tips and was always there for us when we had questions. The house was very modern, spacious and clean on the inside, but we enjoyed being outside even more - the garden, the backyard and the beautiful mountains around us were breathtaking. We couldn’t have dreamt of a better place!

    Rebecca2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous place to stay. Tucked away within the mountains. You will awake to the sound of roosters. It feels like the opening chapter of a delightful aventure :)

    Adrien2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nice stone house in a small village!

    Samuel2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a unique, clean and beautiful apartment in a small town. It was comfortable and relaxing. Mary and her puppy we're there to greet us, made us feel welcome and made it easy to communicate. Online responses were also prompt. It would be beneficial to have a car to get to the local sites and beaches, as well as to grab a bite to eat/ groceries in the next town. Would recommend this stay!

  • Tzeni was a very nice, hospitable and welcoming host. She made us fresh cake upon our arrival which was very nice and she also gave us valuable tips for our stay. The view from the villa is just amazing, the pictures do not do it justice. Very easy to reach elafonissi (15-20 mins by car). 100% would recommend to anyone else!

    Ashkan2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is everything you see in the phtos and more! Tzeni is such a lovely host , always happy to meet you and show you her place which we loved. Lots of thoughtful touches too, wine , cake , fresh eggs left at our door , fruit to try etc.Views to die for and an amazing pool .. towels changed every few days and the place cleaned at least once in our 6 day stay. Would definitely come again and recommend to anybody who would like great hospitality and peace and quiet. Couldn’t have hoped for more. Thankyou so much Tzeni, it was lovely meeting you and we hope to see you again one day

    Sally2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome stay! As some others comments says: it's even better than what you can see in the pictures. Gorgeous view over the mountains, the see, and the village from the terraces. The house itslef is beautiful and simply but very well decorated. We also apreciated the very walm welcome. Will defintely come again !

    Gabriel2019-09-09T00:00:00Z

    Florence2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place. Great mountain location. Quiet and secluded, convenient to Elafonisi. Wonderful host. We loved it.

    Roy2019-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a pleasant stay of 3 nights. The accommodation is situated in a pretty subdivision of 4 houses with a central pool. The interior is a bit rustic but the setting is beautiful. There is a nice terrace to enjoy the view. Thanks to Tzeni for his welcome cake! Perfect for going to Elafonissi before the others.

    Marine2017-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the symphony of daily birdsong, wooden floored bedroom and plants around the outside dining shelter. A completely restful break. A short drive to Elefonissi beach and all lovely sites of interest. Delicious apple cake and jam thank you Tzeni.

    Delfinaki apartment is in a peaceful environment with gorgeous panoramic view, built on the edge of a cliff, only 300 meters from the sea and very close to the famous Elafonissi Beach (13 km). Made with passion for visitors who love equanimity and tranquility, offered by this isolated place. The yard and the whole property is for our guests use exclusively.
    We would like to welcome you to Delfinaki Bungalow, the ideal love nest, a place made for exclusive use by its guests, for whole world around visitors. We are looking forward to serve couples and travelling wanderers.
    Livadia village is a peaceful and quiet place, far from city sounds and worries.The perfect juncture to relax and compose in a place where the overtime dominant sound is coming out from the sea waves, as they meet the wild coast rocks.
  • Honestly this place was absolutely INCREDIBLE!! I wish I could live here forever. The location is perfect, close to cool hiking and the world renowned Elafonisi beach with crystal clear water! I used the hydromassage 5 times in 3 days and was incredible even in the middle of January on (somewhat) chilly nights! Staying here was the highlight of my trip to Greece and Stelios and Maria were the best hosts I could ask for. They went above and beyond for me, helped me arrange a rental car to get to the house, which I thought was going to be impossible with an American drivers license, provided a bottle of homemade wine, and homemade ouzo and took a welcoming shot with me when I arrived. One night they even invited me to have a delicious dinner with them and their amazing family and friends. I would give this place 10 stars if I could, enjoying the hydromassage underneath the stars, listening to the waves of the ocean was the highlight of my trip. I would recommend this stay to anyone looking to go to a beautiful remote village on the amazing island of Crete. I hope to come back one day and enjoy this whole experience again!

    Grayson2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The Delfinaki Bungalow is a charming, inviting, clean, and delightful AirBnB that just happens to include one of the world's most amazing sunset decks! Enjoying wine and cheese on the Delfinaki deck at sunset is a beautiful experience. I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy it as we did. Maria and Stelios are two of the most gracious and generous hosts we've ever met - making sure their guests are comfortable and making themselves available to answer questions as needed. Maria left a carafe of wine in the fridge and a plate of her homemade savory pastries on the table to welcome us - knowing we would arrive quite late. I believe it's the gestures of kindness that set Maria and Stelios apart from other hosts. They have truly earned their AirBnB "Superhost" designation! I highly recommend staying at the Delfinaki Bungalow.

    Julie2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • This house is spectacular. Excellent family, wonderful hospitality and fantastic location. I highly recommend this place.

  • Do you know which is the problem with the “star rating” system? Sometimes 5 stars aren’t enough for highlighting “ey! this place is over the top” “this is really special” It deserves a sixth star.

    Manuel2019-10-28T00:00:00Z

  • We loved are stay here! The villas are beautifully located with amazing views and a really nice pool. Tzeni is a very good and hospitable host. We will certainly visit here again when we come to Crete!

    Jos2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • It was a big pleasure for us to stay at Tzeni’s villa. The location and view is absolutely beautiful. It takes about half an hour to get to the all beaches around. There are many of them. We stayed for 7 nights and sheets with towels were replaced with freshly new once a few times which is unexpectedly great. The house is simple but there’s everything you need. Swimming pool is big and free of people almost all the time. All the neighbors were living in their own small villas so it’s quiet in the evening. I recommend this place for couples or people who is willing to have relaxing and easy going vacation in the middle of the rocks. Tzeni was very friendly and helpful all the time. We are very thankful.

    Viacheslav2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • We were warmly welcomed. Everything is very clean and comfortable. As described, there are a few steps to the accommodation, however, the larger villa is easily accessible, you should not be so good on foot. We enjoyed it very much and the view from the private terrace and from the pool is fantastic.

    Nicole2018-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • The most wonderful views and midnight stars. Fab pool and quiet private terrace. Fresh spring water and friendly village. Comfortable and traditional style House. Crisp linen sheets great bathroom.

    Cath2018-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place with your own private villa in a tiny village in the middle of the mountains. The location cannot be any better. The private terrace gives you a stunning view of the mountains and the small village. Tzeni is a great and considerate host that gives you the little extra to feel even more welcome. Within a few minutes you find some of the most beautiful beaches of Crete. The village offers you great and cheap local products and meals. We would be happy to come back to this amazing place!

    Hanna2018-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days staying at the rural idyll which is Velanos Villas. Perched on a hillside above the village of Kefali it was a wonderful haven of peace and quiet. We loved the setting, up a windy little road, but still very accessible to the village with its tavernas and mini-market, with walks in the hills and countryside possible direct from the villas. The swimming pool was a lovely addition, clean and well maintained (and much larger than many in cottages we’ve stayed in previously). The cottages vary in size and although ours, Villa Lito, was relatively small it had everything we needed and a nice little patio with outdoor furniture and lovely views. There were steep steps down to this and Villa Areto so book into the other villas, Nefali or …..if this would be a problem. Tzeni was such a welcoming host adding to our stay with homemade produce - and nothing was too much trouble if there were any concerns. The property was cleaned with fresh linen and towels every 3 days. Elafonisi beach “after hours” (from 6.00 p.m. onwards when the coaches have all gone) was a highlight for us, as was a walk through the Topolia Gorge starting from Katsomothados – both only 20 minutes away. The nearest big supermarket was in Kissamos or Paleochora so shop on the way or come prepared if you want to cater for yourself a lot. All in all a lovely holiday - Thank you

    Sheila2018-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed one night at Tzeni's Lito house. When you arrive, after a steep road by car, the view is breathtaking. We loved the way the houses and swimming pool were arranged. Tzeni was waiting for us to welcome us and show us around. She also let us a homemade cake: very good ! The location was perfect to go the day after to Elafonissi. We definitely recommend staying there !

  • A beautiful, quiet place where you can relax for a few days and recharge your batteries. Hostess Tzeni (Jenny) takes care of everything. We were even given cakes and Greek sweets. Simple, but with everything you need. The accommodation is finca-like. 4 houses of different sizes, 1 communal pool. Our Villa Armonia offers plenty of space. We had a great rest and explored the eastern part of Crete with a rental car. The dream beaches Balos and Elfanousi and interesting places like Chania and Peleochoras are not far.

  • Beautiful location and warm welcome of Tzeni.

  • Very nice place , charming !

    Geoffroy2017-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • The villa of Tzeni is very well situated in relation to the beautiful beaches of the south (a tip: do not go to Elafonisi the day ... it is filled with tourists ... it becomes very ugly .... by go y for 8am, it is only 20 m 'by car ... and push up behind the first dune..you will find there a beautiful beach..not transat..and for you alone..a dream .. and leave around 10:30 am / 11:00 am when the buses arrive, filled with tourists who leave the beaches dirty !!) .. Tzeni is very friendly and made us taste the milk of his goats, had a cake and a bottle of wine to accomodate us ... we are delighted with this stay in his villa..itroit a little windy but it helps to bear the heat of summer ... pool to share very nice ... m

    Carole2017-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Magical place. Beautiful, and Tzeni was so kind. Will be back!

    Bonnie2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning house in the mountains. We loved eating our breakfast outside with the amazing views! Very friendly hosts who provided lovely welcome food & drink. (Your goats cheese was fabulous). We very much hope to return.

  • Our host Tzeni - along with George and Bill - were excellent hosts: we couldn't have been more pleased with them and their wonderful property, villa Armonia (Harmony). From the moment we arrived they made us feel welcome and were available throughout our stay yet gave us privacy and space to relax. The property itself is wonderful: sympathetically built into the gorgeous landscape with excellent views and plenty of room inside and out. The facilities downstairs in the main, spacious room included a well-equipped kitchen with a big fridge-freezer, plenty of sofas, a good size TV with a new dvd, a table to eat at and four chairs, as well as shelving and cupboards to keep books and games in. A shower and toilet are also tucked away downstairs. Upstairs there are two large bedrooms, both with balconies affording amazing views and a good size bathroom with bath/shower, sink and another toilet. Outside is wonderful too: plenty of sun loungers, a table with chairs, plenty of flowers and flowering cacti and stunning views. It feels private and secluded and a one minute walk away is the pool - it's a little cool due to the altitude but on a sunny day it's wonderful. A two minute drive or 5 minute walk down the access road brings you to Kefali, a small village with three tavernas. Good for basic food and there's a well equipped shop there too with fresh bread, fruit and veg and various other treats. I'd say you need a car to enjoy the surrounding area which is unspoilt, quiet and beautiful. We went to Elafinisi regularly which is a superb place to hang out and about a 20 minute drive. We also visited the Topolia gorge (about 25 minutes), Elos (about 15 minutes) and took a trip to Balos (over an hour but worth it). The roads in this area are mainly narrow and vertiginous but there are breathtaking views around pretty much every bend interspersed with small unspoilt villages. We also took a trip to Milia Mountain retreat for some amazing food and saw eagles close up on the way back. Overall I'd recommend this holiday to anyone and everyone. My partner, our 7 year old daughter and I loved every minute of it. Tzeni and her family are kind and generous and Tzeni is great at quickly getting back to any enquiries. And it's very reasonably priced!

    Russ2016-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Tzeni was the most adorable host I ever had. Everything was easy with arrival and departure. My family and I only stayed for one night but she prepared us some delicious cake and a bottle of wine and also some homemade jam. The house and garden and swimming pool are like a dream. Could not have been any better. Thank you again Tzeni!

    Kefali, Crete Region, Greece

    This little tower has been built on a big rock! It is located in Stomio village which is 5 minutes before the monastery of Chrysoskalitissa, the small beach "Aspri limni" and 12 minutes from the famous beach Elafonisi!
  • Never met the host in person. Her brother helped me and he was very hospitable. Although the room was a bit cramped it served my purpose perfectly. Location was very close to Elafinisi Beach, straight down the road. The farm atmosphere added to the experience. I saw a herd or sheep come down from the mountains to pasture and deer in the morning. I had breakfast at their restaurant and it was perfect. I definitely recommend it.

    Sherry2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. The location is great for access to Elafonisi Beach and surrounding restaurants. The farm aspect of the location is unique too. Family was genuinely welcoming. Would definitely stay again!

    Michael2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • nice stone house with lovely view of the mountains. room is actually smaller as it seems in the photos but enough for two. food in the family taverna is good!

    Sebastian2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • We spent one night in this place with my boyfriend. There is a restaurant next to it, the food was good. This is really a unique place where you want to spend a night. We appreciate it and we recommend it.

    Logane2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • You can not imagine a fancy place to stay. The mill is a place to feel good, down to the smallest details, the accommodation was designed very lovingly. The landlords are extremely hospitable and the adjacent tavern is absolutely to be recommended, also reflects the loving planning again. Great food, great ambience and sympathetic hosts.

    Robert2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • This family provided us an excellent family touch with their farm animals and generous taverna hospitality! They model family in its highest sense! We loved our stay! Joni & Deb Vancouver, Canada 🇨🇦

    Joni2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • we stayed two weeks at katerinas house! we had a great time - we had a car and made many trips to walk the gorges or costaltracks arround the area and stayed also at the beach of kedrodasos to relax like in paradise! the house is small but very special, proper and cosy. the hosts family were all very friendly and the taverne is perfect to eat with excellent food! there are lots of animals like chicken, rabbits, cats, exotic birds etc. and roosters who give you an early morning call. so if you have a car and like nature this is a perfect place to be!

    Birgit2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • A little bit of paradise! Katrina, her brother Yanis and all the family are wonderful (it really is a family run business) The Tower room is beautifully presented, a stones throw from their traditional restaurant (you won't go hungry or thirsty here!) and a gentle 15 minute walk to Stormio's beautiful beach - one of many in the area to explore. Amenities in the Tower are minimal, no facilities for making a hot drink so you will have to either use the restaurant or head further afield - but other than that it is perfect. We loved being surrounded by their animals; the deer, chickens, ducks, peacocks - their family dogs - it all felt homely (if you don't mind the early morning wake up up 😂) My favourite place on Crete so far - with perfect hosts xxx

    Ένα υπέροχο δωμάτιο από πέτρα και ξύλο. βασικό χαρακτηριστικό το μεγάλο και απαλό κρεβάτι καθώς επίσης και το παραδοσιακό πρωινό. πολλές μικρές απολαύσεις όπως αφρόλουτρα από λάδι και ταχύτατη σύνδεση στο ίντερνετ.
    ένας ξυλοφουρνος και μια ψησταριά που είναι για τούς επισκεπτες. καθώς επίσης υπάρχει δυνατότητα όλα να προετοιμαστούν από εμάς για εσάς.
    the house is part of an old historical village called Perivolia, surronded from big trees and a river which crosses ths whole village. also you can visit two small museums, the first one is called " HOUSE OF OUR GRANDFATHERS". Inside you can see many old tools , pictures , machines and things from our past. Aso the village is well known for Anagnostis Skalidis, a famous Cretan fighter who also became president of the cretan parliament before the unity with the rest of Greese. His house is saved and preserved from his grandson and can be visited, and you can see pictures ,weapons and all sorts of artifacts. Last but not least Perivolia is a sanctuary of wild life and specifically of huge nativa falcons and voltures which can be seen up in the sky. the mountain-top of saint IOV which is the name of the small church at the top is the place to see the birds and enjoy the 360 view from the aigaion to elafonisi and Gavdos island.
  • Elena’s place is lovely, comfortable and really well located in a small and quiet village in the mountains near the wonderful Elafonissi beach, at a 15-20 minutes drive. Elena and her husband warmly welcomed us and the breakfast was delicious with locally home made products. We really enjoyed our stay there and definitely recommend it !

Full of kitchen utensils are available and the apartment is very functional. As a gift, we were treated to a cake, Raki and candied lemons: the dream!

    Alizée2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • WoW is the word for this incredible view!! The appartement as a huge terrace where you can enjoy the sunset every day. We were like the only people in the small village, silent, quiet, beautiful, confortable and modern, this is what describes the best this place! Thanks to Crisanthi and her father who welcomed us with beers ;) Thank you thank you thank you!! What a romantic place, list in the mountains!!

    Juliette2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Crisanthi's apartment is modern, clean and equipped with everything that may be useful during your stay; moreover, the sunset seen from the terrace is breathtaking. The smallness of the house is small, to get to the beach it takes about 35 minutes because you walk on mountain roads, not particularly safe, and it is also rather isolated (pros and cons): surely, counting that there aren't many in the area houses near the coast, it is still a good accommodation.

    Elena2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and comfortable house with spectacular views. You can watch the most incredible sunsets from the balcony. The balcony is also in full shade till around noon so you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the terrace. Amazing views of the stars at night. The house is high up so its much cooler and more pleasant than staying closer to the coast. Chrisanthi is an excellent and responsive host and her mum checked us in - she was also really great! The house itself is great and very spacious and comfortable. Location is great - very quiet - but you do need to drive and plan ahead for acquiring groceries etc. Its a 30 min drive to Elafonissi beach and about 15 mins to Sfinari beach. The view from each drive is spectacular but you do need to be a confident driver to navigate this part of Crete.

    Jelena2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect. Flat was very clean upon arrival. Crisanthi’s mother gave us homemade cake. We had a great time in a nice a quiet place with sea view. Very peaceful. I recommend!

    Martine2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice apartment with an exceptional view 25 minutes from Elafonissi. Very welcome, we were received with a welcome watermelon and great attention.

    Fred2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation of Crisanthi is very well located, quiet with wonderful views. The apartment has all the necessary equipment. I highly recommend this apartment.

    Amigdalokefali Innachorion, Chania, Greece

    Combine the relaxation of a village, with the opportunity to visit the most beautiful beaches of Crete! This marvelous traditional stonehouse is located at the village named Pappadiana (Kissamou), a 20 minutes drive from the well known for their rare beauty beaches Elafonisi, Kedrodasos, and also from other magnificent bights, mountain peaks and unexplored paths. The house can host 4 people as it is equiped with a double bed, a single bed and a couch-bed.
    The house is accesible from a path leading to the courtyard of the house and the main entrance and also by a staircase connecting the first floor with the road. The most beautiful view can be found in the bedroom which is located at the first floor. The bathroom, kitchen and dining room are located on the ground floor where there is also a single bed and a sofa. In the courtyard of the house one can enjoy his breakfast having a view of the green vegetation and listening to the sounds of the river. The house is equipped with the basics such as fridge and oven. In a 5-minute drive you can visit the village of Kefali eat lunch at one of its taverns or buy fresh fruits, vegetables and other types of food.
    The village of Pappadiana is divided into two neighborhoods. The house is located in the lower neighborhood and is surrounded by other stone-built houses. Near the house there is a cistern where people used to wash their clothes. There is plenty of water running on it, so it's full of plane trees. There are many paths that one can choose to explore the mountains either by bicycle or on foot.
  • A beautiful and quiet place. The hosts Niki and Erasmios are simply perfect. Very attentive and warm-hearted. We stayed for about one week in their cozy little cottage and from the first day we did not only feel like guests but like friends. We had the unique opportunity to join them to a very special local celebration in an amazing little church which turned out to be a cave in the "rocky mountains" surrounding Pappadiana and Simantiriana. On our last evening they invited us to their own house for a wonderful diner (partly prepared on maybe the best self-constructed grill we have ever seen). 100% recommendation for a perfect place and perfect hosts!

    Nadja2019-10-12T00:00:00Z

    Birgitta2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • It was an absolute pleasure to stay in Kefali during our stay in Greece. Niki and all of her family are the nicest and were very available/helpful for us. The location is perfect for adventurous people who want to discover authentic Crete and its wonderful landscapes. We loved it and had the best time, « this is perfection » as my grandmother keep repeating during our trip. Thanks Niki for everything !

    Maryline2019-09-30T00:00:00Z

The place itself is beautifully renovated with so many personal, tasteful and thoughtful touches. All in all it was a truly restful stay in absolute comfort, allowing us to explore the surrounding area and get a true flavour of Crete's beautiful mountains and beaches.

    Gill2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Expect a wonderful reception, kindness and great stories from Niki and her husband Erasmus. Niki is beyond a super-host. We truly enjoyed her company and support.

    Neal2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful and quiet place ... far from the hustle and bustle of Elafonisi. A very good welcome from Nikki and his wife. The fruits of the garden are exceptional

    Thierry2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Be prepared to fall in love not only with the beautiful house, full of character and charm, and with the peaceful locale, but also with the amazing Niki and Erasmus, whose warmth and hospitality are unparalleled. Casa Pappadiana is the perfect home base from which to explore western Crete. The house is very comfortably equipped, and you can spend hours on the terrace enjoying the mountain view. Many gorgeous beaches are nearby, and Niki and Erasmus are on hand with excellent tips for exploring places off the beaten path. We didn’t want to leave! Thank you again for everything!

  • We had a great stay at Villa Taos during winter holidays. The house is cosy, has a wunderful artisanal interieur design and flair. It is newly equipped and it's perfect for a couple. Absolutely marvelous is the scenic sea-view, which you have from inside the house. If you are lucky a peacock comes visiting the veranda. Giorgos and Ageliki are welcoming and warmhearted people. Livadia is a small calm village nearby the sea and surrounded by nature.

  • Just the perfect place to be... It is a beautiful separate house made by the owners just next to theirs, with a beautiful garden they happily share with us and their animals (peacocks, dogs, hens etc) It has all one needs and the most amazing view for a sunset and to wake up with The local tavern run by Yannis, "Galietes", is delicious, the area is beautiful and wild The only wish was for a farmer's market in the area. Just bring your food if you are fussy like me. I always do. Or treat yourself to the Gialites taverna 5 minutes walk away everyday Otherwise there are mini markets with vegetables and tins a short car ride away We very miss being there already and looking forward to our next visit to this generous and talented Family (they got some wine and water in the fridge, and some cheesy treats were waiting for us on arrival and one opening we got some home baked bread) We are extremely grateful to have come to this place Goodbye to the village... Hope Yannis baby is healthy!

The house is located in a quiet village and is very close to great beaches and to Elafonisi. There are also good tavernas nearby. Wine and delicious appetizers were prepared for us at our arrival and the family is very sweet and accommodating. We def recommend!

  • Excellent stay of 2 nights at Giorgos, in this small village lost in the middle of the mountain. Ideal to be quiet but close to beautiful beaches like those of Elafonissi. Super accommodation, with the bonus of having breakfast on the rooftop, accessible via a small ladder. Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds. To book without hesitation.

    Benjamin2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • What a nice find! The house in the mountains is suitable for people who are looking for a quiet place in nature. You have everything what you need and it’s super clean. We had a warming welcome with Konstantina & Giorgios. Konstantina explained us all necessary things and answered very quickly if we had a question. We loved the little place in the mountains and would love to come back.

    Alexandra2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Giorgos and Constantina were the best hosts we could ever wish for. They treated us like family, invited us for concerts and to their private events. The apartment was super clean and very pretty. We slept very well in the bed and loved the lounge area on the roof. Would go back anytime!!!

  • Giannis warmly welcomed us in his spectacularly beautiful home, that is not only perfectly and calmly located, but still very close (15-20 min drive) to amazing beaches. The view from the terrace and the silence were so enjoyable for us. The village has all that one needs, and very good tavernas are close by. Giannis gave us great tips for tavernas, beaches, places, and would help us any time very quickly. The house is beautifully decorated and has all the charm of a traditional house, whilst enjoying all the comfort too. It was very clean, neat, and in a very good condition. Thank you Giannis for giving us such beautiful holiday memories. We would come back any time!!

  • Ideally located, Mamma Vasso is the best option to discover South West Crete. The advice of Giannis, very pleasant host, allowed us to discover places, beaches and exceptional restaurants.

    Bastian2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • AMAZING place. Such beautiful views, beautiful stone house, great location for local beaches and so relaxing. Terrace absolutely amazing and good amenities to cook own food and eat outside. Also good tavernas in 10mins driving distance for dinner. House beautifully clean and well done. Giannis amazing host so friendly and so many great local tips. Treated us to Raki at local shop/cafe on our first night and left some in house for us made by his father. Olive oil also made by his father in the house was delicious. Would highly recommend. Felt like a really special place. Will always remember it! Thank you!

    Anna-Marie2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • On our trip to Crete we stayed in 4 different places and this was by far our favourite! Waking up to have breakfast with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains was idyllic. We loved the house so much that we decided to eat in for 2 of our 3 night stay so we could enjoy it. The house itself is very stylish, and comfortable (nice comfy bed). The kitchen is compact but had everything we needed, including some nice local oil and raki from Giannis dad! Giannis was great, he waited for our delayed late arrival to meet us and show us around, he gave us some great tips (best beach was kedrodasos- less crowded than elafonissi with same beautiful waters) and he also made a call to his friend to check his restaurant was still open for a late dinner. Very useful to be able to do some washing - machine and liquid provided. Giannis was always very quick to respond if we had any questions - even offering advice once we had left his place. Would highly recommend a stay here if you fancy some peaceful time in the mountains.

    Katy2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great and cozy place to stay with a number of beaches 10-20 min drive away! Amazing host! Highly recommended!

    Dashkaa2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • A small apartment in a small village. A haven of peace, a typical decoration with charm and many tastes, a sublime setting. Stuning view. The dream. 18 minutes from the most beautiful beaches of Crete. Unforgettable walks in the mountains.

    Carole2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in a small village looking down the valley toward the sea with a glimpse of a sea view. Beautifully decorated old stone Cretan house. Giannis is great, we ate at a fish restaurant he recommended and it was lovely - Kosmos. The wifi is strong. Easy drive to surrounding beaches south. As advertised, and thoroughly recommend it.

  • Giannis is the most welcoming host. On arrival he was waiting for us with all the local information about the surroundings anyone would need (and some raki ofcourse). The stone house is quite dated on the inside, but very clean. It is the outside area and the absolute peace and quiet of this place that makes it as good as it is. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you Giannis!

    Ariet2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Giannis is an amazing host, he takes really good care of his guests. The house has an amazing view, having a drink on the terrace with the sunset is a bliss! Nature, calm, we loved it!

    Céline2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was wonderful! Giannis is a lovely host. We strongly recommend to visit and stay at his house!

    Thorsten2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • If you don't like big hotels with swimming pools and are looking for peace - this is the place for you. Small but cozy, tastefully furnished and comfortable with panoramic sea and mountain views. No neighbors nearby. We were living with a child of four and there was enough space. The host is very nice, advises what to see, served homemade vodka and oil.

    Rytis2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a great week!! Stone House is almost completely hidden from the road that runs past it, and is overlooked by no one. You really do have privacy up in the hills. The house was lovely, clean and exactly as it looks on the photos. Outside space is huge and well kept. Giannis met us at the property, map and Raki in hand, and talked us through all the places to visit and eat in the area. He was in touch via WhatsApp all week for any questions or issues (not that we had any of either). Please do follow his advice on how to reach Elafonisi, as Google Maps tried to take us on a much longer route. It is only 20 mins away and stunning. A car is a must, and the roads are mountain roads, so if that's an issue then the South West of Crete may not be the place for you. However, it is the most beautiful area, a cracking property, and a brilliant host. So if you visit, you will not be disappointed!

    Rob2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • A really nice Stone House with a fantastic view to the sea. Best location for a sundowner :) The Space for 4 adults is Limited But okay. The outdoorshower is really fantastic!! :) Giannis is a really nice host with many tips. the location of the house to the beaches is very good. Thanks!!!

    Tim Yannik2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Giannis’ Stone House is an amazing place, definitely for a couple’s retreat. It’s a very quiet area, with a beautiful sunset and all the privacy you could want. The outdoor shower is a great substitute for a swimming pool, or simply visit one of the (beautiful) nearby beaches!

    Yuri2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautifully situated overlooking the west coast of Crete and the sea. The peace and quiet are fantastic. Giannis is a very friendly and attentive host, thanks to his tips we have discovered places that are otherwise reserved for the locals. If you want to holiday away from the hustle and bustle, is here in good hands.

  • Amazing host, super friendly and full of thoughtful attention. Great house with amazing view, probably the best of the area!!! The outside terrace and the all outdoor was fantastic, a pleasure to spent as much time as possible on. There is a village 4-5km away with a few Tavernas (all with great food, try the delicious Zucchini fritters) and a shop for groceries. There is also another small village at walking distance with 1 great homely taverna . Also several beaches for swimming and snorkeling, Really relaxing place, we had an amazing time!!!! Couldn't recommend it enough! :)

    Cedric2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Elafonisi house. The house is cute and comfortably furnished. The surrounding area with the big terrace surrounded by olive trees is amazing and its view on the sea and sunset are absolutely stunning! And it's only 20 minutes drive from the famouse Elafonisi beach. We very much enjoyed our days at Elafonisi house! Thank you so much!

    Regula2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don’t do the place justice, amazing villa in an amazing location I couldn’t believe it was still available when I was booking accommodation last minute. The terrace is huge with sun loungers and a hammock and you can watch the sunset as it faces west. Elafonisi beach is the nicest cleanest beach I’ve ever been to and it was only a 20 min drive from the villa. We will definitely return :)

    Steven2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, the photos are accurate, the description is accurate. The wrap around patio/terrace is stunning and you will not believe the views, and the stars! Hospitality provided by Panagiotis was exceptional and his recommendations on beaches and local spots to eat were exactly what matched our prefer necessary. A car is a must as the house is up in the hills overlooking the sea, however the drives to the local areas are quite quick. A really relaxing stay

    Diana2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptional. An incredibly warm and attentive welcome (food provided in the fridge, wine on the table, good addresses of restaurants and beaches noted together on a map ...), a house ideally located vis-à-vis the sea (view and incredible sunset), Elafonissi, and the West Coast in general. New and functional equipment, impeccable cleanliness ... The hosts are responsive and wish you a good stay as if you were family, and it works!

    Pauline2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Really wonderful hosts, welcoming, available and full of attentions (including coffee and gifts at arrival). Elafonisi house is ideal for a couple (even with a kid). The house, while relatively small inside, is perfectly located on the mountain side with 180 degrees view on the seaside with the water at few hundred meters away, has all amenities, in particular fantastic terraces and no neighbors nearby. The West coast of the island is beautiful and still wild. While there were still a few elements to improve in the house as we were among the first renting the house after recent major renovations (such as water pressure in the bathroom), I assume these will be corrected for a truly enjoyable stay. We are looking forward to come back! Thanks a lot Panagiotis!!

    Bernard2019-08-13T00:00:00Z

  • A great stay, a great villa & amazing views !! Remote location but the place is super quiet, facing the sea with a wonderful view of the sunset. It is located on the west coast of Crete. Close to the beautiful beach Elafonissi beach Superb! A car, as mentioned, is a must. There are some mini markets and taverns within a 20 minute drive. Lefteris and his team responded very quickly to our requests. Communication with him was great. A big thankyou for everything. it was really great. We loved it. I recommend without hesitation. thank you again, and hope to see you soon! Mathilde and Jerome

    Mathilde2019-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely spectacular 180 degree sea views in a remote and beautiful part of Crete. Hear the waves while you sleep! Very close to Elafonisi beach - which has a good restaurant - top top is that this place does take away food. Fantastic walks from beach area also. Make sure to bring provisions as while there are mini markets within 15 mins the choice is limited. We hope to visit again!

  • I never felt so grounded and peaceful. I booked this place spontaneously and revered to the beautiful pictures. But what my eyes saw in reality, made my feel like a dream. Selfmade Home with literally everything a heart can desire. Nature, seaview, mountainview, terrasse, Perfect Garden, treehouse, most amazing hosts, incredible birds. I just couldn’t get enough of being there and feeling so happy and fulfilled with the beauty of nature in cooperation with mindful people. I will definitely come back!!! My deepest thank you for this paradise!

  • This was by far the best airbnb I've ever stayed at! It was absolutely stunning, a true work of art yet super cozy! The creativity and artistry were inspiring. Wonderful kitchen set up with everything you could need. ( Bring food as this is not in a town) Hosts were super sweet and we were greeted with delicious cookies and treats! Wish we could have stayed longer. The drive to get there is stunning!

    Angela2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place. The host and his family are amazing and kind caring people. We arrived late the first day and instead of us having to go out and shop for food, Giorgos and his wife gave us some of their food. There are two rentable houses on the grounds. Both absolutely stunning. The location is a bit remote (But thats why we picked it. Surrounded by beautiful nature.) and depending on the season we recommend taking the more inland route when coming from Chania. In the rainy months the other Mountain road washes away.

    Pascal2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to stay at an amazing, hand built accommodation that leaves no wish open you could ask from a holiday home – this is the place to go. Giorgos and his wife Aggeliki are amazing hosts, making you feel right at home the moment you arrive. No matter if you travel with or without kids, Villa Katoi is a place you will not forget. Especially when you wake up next to a beautiful peacock on your windowsill.

    René2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • That was really big movie! A wonderful house, a breathtakingly beautiful environment and really lovely and caring hosts that made us feel welcome. The house was absolutely complete and thoughtfully furnished, in addition to great design! The little zoo in the garden has delighted us every day. Here you can relax, drive to nearby beaches or just sit back and relax on the landscape: on one side the mountains, bleating sheep and barking dogs. On the other side the sea. From Chania you can be there in about 90 minutes - but you have to be quite fearless, as far as the road condition is concerned. An adventure. But once you're there, it's beautiful.

    Thomas2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • The hospitality of the Giorgos Family and apartments exceeded all our expectations! we were moved to the depths of our hearts by their cordiality. The atmosphere in the form of a garden with peacocks and a mini zoo shocked us. I want to say that all the territory was created by Giorgos. were very satisfied !!! Recommended

    Sergiy2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is our first Airbnb holiday and first time in Crete. Words cannot express how wonderful it has all been. The villa is gorgeous, artistically designed in beautiful gardens, set in peaceful surroundings. It is a very special place and the hosts were superb. We wanted privacy away from the crowds and this holiday went beyond all expectations. The local taverna looked a bit shabby but the food was exceptional.

  • The apartment is adorable, the large west facing deck is great but the location out in the middle of nowhere with no neighbors is SPECTACULAR. I like to cook so appreciated the well equipped kitchen. Nice deep bathtub with only a handheld shower attachment. Only bad point was terrible WiFi. I was there early April 2019 and the area has suffered severe storms which has caused major road damage & closures on coastal route. Take the inland mountain road that G—gle shows as longer to save time and stress. It’s going to take a long while b4 roads are fixed.

  • The stay was excellent with a view from the simply idyllic terrace. Thank you to Crisanthi's mom for her kindness and enthusiasm.

  • Visited this apartment in September 2018, the apartments are located in a quiet village on the mountain, 30-40 minutes drive from Elafonisi beach and neighboring beautiful beaches. The nearest beach is 15 minutes away by car. Near the house (300 meters) there is a fine restaurant Meltemi, the rest of the taverns and cafes are not closer than 3 km. by car. A great place for a quiet relaxing holiday, stunning views from the spacious terrace with a garden of the sea and mountains, very beautiful sunsets. In the house everything is clean, neat, has everything you need for cooking. If you want to enjoy beautiful views, quiet atmosphere, and hospitality - you are here. Without your own car will be very difficult, because You can reach the sea only by car. Do not regret that they chose these apartments. Everything was wonderful!

  • If you want peace and quiet, privicy, a lovely terrace with a little garden and a stunning sea view.....this is the place for you! The appartment is built into the rock so is nice and cool, even when it is hot outside. We had great nights sleep with no need for air conditioning. 20 mins from elafonisi but if you want a beach to yourself there are several within 10 mins drive. Kefali is the nearest village for provisions. Crisanthi and her family are very kind and welcoming. I highly recommend this place especially for couples who want to get away from it all!

It is the type of house someone would look to find peace and tranquility. The amazing climate of the area offers the possibility of residence in the autumn and winter as well. Next to the house you will find the traditional restaurant 'Gialites Taverna' that offers any food service of the cretan land you might look for.
    The house is small but covers all your necessities for a comfort living. For the nature adorers we offer a bicycle to explore the area free of charge. :)
    The village offers great beaches (Apsanisa, Koutoulos), which are suitable for underwater fishing (equipment will be provided if needed) and easy access, provided a car, to world famous beaches such as Elafonisi, Falassarna and Balos. You can also visit the "Chrysoskalitissa" monastery and the special "Milia" village. Those visiting during the autumn months can watch or join in the traditional olive oil extraction.
  • A fantastic, very well equipped studio perfectly situated a 20 minute drive from Elafonisi. Really attentive host. Great value. Thanks!

  • Very good value for money . The accommodation is right in front of a very good tavern and a 5 minute walk from a beautiful viewpoint for the sunset!

  • It was an excellent choice and location to explore elafonisi and kedrodasos. Dimitris and his father were great hosts and make us feel super nice. The little house was quite and cute place and great value of money. The pictures do not give the whole picture of the house. Plus there is a tavern near by with amazing local food that tops the experience. Strongly recommended.

  • I was traveling alone and spent some really beautiful days in "my" little house in Livadia. The house is ideal for a person or a couple. The village is small and free of tourism. There is a tavern in the village, right next to the cottage, where you can eat deliciously. Unfortunately, this tavern does not open until the evening, so you have to take care of your own breakfast or go somewhere else. Everything is there, what you need. Although Dimitris was not on site, but has answered all my questions immediately, I described the directions in detail and also given me tips for things. You can reach the sights of the Southwest by rental car (important!) Well, spend the day here and there and then enjoy the evening but completely away from the hustle and bustle completely relaxed. Thank you Dimitris! Thank you dear Livadians!

  • Complete calm, inspiring views, clear turquoise waters, baby goats. Sophia is an excellent host, met us in person so that we knew everything about the house and area. Head to Elafonissi beach, but then walk on the marked trail south to find empty swimming spots, a cedar forest, and golden beaches without a soul. We also enjoyed lounging by "the fjord" a channel of calm sea (protected from the wind and the sea by a large outcropping) walking distance from the house. Make sure to stock up on groceries before arriving as during the low season we found many restaurants and mini markets closed. The hike from Kampos village to platanakia beach is recommended.

    Adam2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • If you like to be away and like it quiet, you are in good hands here. Sofia is a great host. Sometimes the water can be gone.

    Klaus2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent stay in this little house a little isolated. It is quiet, quiet, facing the sea, in a beautiful corner. We sleep very well. Ideal to rest and relax.

    Estelle2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Charming little house, with stunning views of the sea. Small shower because small bathroom but a very nice outdoor shower. Very quiet place and well located to discover the west coast of Crete (winding road by the sea and in the olive trees) and its spectacular beaches of elafonisi (South) and balos (North). Sophia is also charming and knows how to give her time to explain the house, places to discover, taverns where to feast and local shops (a little distant).

    Karen2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • The small house of Sophia is very pleasant to live with a magnificent view on the sea (Bay of Kampos). Well equipped house: air conditioning, TV, kitchenette, bathroom, beautiful seafront terrace. Enjoy every evening beautiful sunset and our nights were rocked by the sound of the waves. Excellent bedding. The house is isolated and a car is essential. Access in 45 minutes to the magnificent beaches of Elafonissi. Sophia gave us a very warm welcome and even made herself available to accompany us on our last afternoon in Chania.

    Corinne2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sophia's accommodation is the ideal place for those wishing to spend peaceful holidays, away from the confusion of typically tourist places. It is located in a rather isolated area, so it is necessary to travel by car to have dinner and to make small purchases; it is on the first floor and overlooks the sea giving a splendid view from the terrace, but also from the living room! The house is clean and really everything is provided, from home, bath and beach linens, to appliances ... Sophia is welcoming, precise in providing information and available for any needs.

    Stefania2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • When you are looking for a quiet place in beautifull enviroment... this will be the place you are looking for! Fantastic view (120m to the sea)... amazing place...

    Juergen2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sophia is really a super host. The apartment was 100% as described. Clean and really quiet an the view is absolute stunning. I would recommend to bring water shoes to avoid cutting your feet when you enter the sea since some rocks can have sharp edges.

  • Nopi’s place is in Limni (i soacify it because the app directed my wife and me to white beach by mistake). It is on the second floor of a Tavern called Antártisa. The place is large, quiet and clean. The hosts didn’t speak English but that wasn’t a problem. The breakfast was great and there is a restaurant downstairs in case you are hungry. Not much to do within walking distance but it’s a short 30 minute drive to Elafonisi

  • A very good address, which we highly recommend! The apartment is very spacious, well equipped and nicely decorated, with the added bonus of a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. We also liked his location in a typical village, with really nice people. The reception of Evaggelia and her husband was irreproachable, their attentions particularly appreciated.

  • We have spent a really nice holiday at this beautiful place. Evangelia is such a perfect host! She met us, showed us everything, provided us with the baby chair and the baby travel cot and also provided us with the food which was so nice especially after a long trip. The place is very clean and fully equipped, there was everything that we needed. The location is also so good - very quiet and peaceful but close to Elafonisi and some other beautiful places. Really great place to stay.

    Антон2018-10-01T00:00:00Z

The house was really elegant and nice in a small quite village 20 min from Elafonisi but also well placed to visit other nice location in the north west area of Crete. She was really nice giving us also several recommendation for place to visit and Tavernas where we should taste the excellent food of the area. We should have been asked more.

  • A nice little house in a quiet mountain village. Good access to beaches, but doesn’t feel very touristy. We were there in October and it was super quiet. Giannis was always quick to answer questions, and set us up with good advice as soon as we arrived.

    Stuart2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • We spent just over a week at Giannis' house and we had a wonderful stay. It's a beautiful traditional house, quiet, peaceful and perfect for relaxation. We felt very much at home and Giannis was a great host, responding quickly to all our inquiries and providing useful local tips. Location wise, the house is a short drive from a great beach, Elafonissi and about an hour's drive from Falassarna and Balos with nice restaurants nearby. We would absolutely recommend Giannis and his lovely home.

    Cristina & Nick2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Gianni was a nice host. He took the time to explain the amenities, the location and gave great local tips! He's very responsive the stay. The Airbnb is located 17 minutes away from Elafonisi beach and its location is secluded away in a mountain area of Chania which is perfect for relaxing.

    Laura2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Giannis is simply extraordinary !! Very kind, he knows the area well and knows how to give the best advice for any need. With us he never missed a shot! The house is beautiful, clean and equipped with all comforts. The area is hidden from mass tourism, perfect for those who want to relax and enjoy the life of the real Crete.

    Carla2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful gem in a magical area of Crete!! Highly recommended place and a beautiful experience! Thank you for everything!

    Ghita2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed four nights in the fantastic home of Giannis, a real wedding favor with all the necessary services including wi-fi and smart TV. Giannis was really kind and helpful in describing the accommodation and places to visit nearby !! I highly recommend this accommodation to those who want to relax in a good location to reach some of the most beautiful beaches on the west side of Crete.

    Fabio2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had an excellent time at Mama Vasso and there is no question of why Giannis had received "super host" status as he was the perfect host. Beautiful place. If we could suggest a single improvement or two, it would be the ability to hang up the shower and also some clear transparent glasses for the shower so that everything didn't get wet when we showered. This would take the place from excellent to perfect. Can highly recommend this Airbnb!

    Silje2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Au cœur d’un petit village sur les collines proches de Elafonissi, l’appartement est très tranquille et bien décoré. Merci à Giannis pour son accueil et sa gentillesse!
