Places to stay in Palaiokastro
Sea + City + Culture - 100 m to the beach - 13 km to Heraklion - 18 km to Knossos - Strategic place in Center of Crete, easy to visit the whole island - regular Yoga classes - Creative Corners - Familial atmosphere Specials - Yoga Classes - Pranic Healing - Reflexology - Guided visiting tours - Cooking classes
Our idea of an real holiday, besides the sea and chilling out, is to offer the possibility to get in touch with Greek people, to get to know their culture and to join them, also to be in nature and to get the Greek feeling!
  • A magical place with character, feels like staying in a movie :) Gabriella is a wonderful person of many talents and she created a really inspiring ambience! I also recommend taking a yoga lesson and trying the reflexology and pranic healing, it is great! I also rented a car - good car at a very reasonable price and George, the husband, who has the car rental, is super kind! An amazing experience overall!

  • Gabriella’s place is unique and funky . . . Communication was great; the surrounding community is warm and welcoming.

    Daile2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella's house is very traditional. You will not find luxury but fellowship and helpfulness.

  • Everything was very uncomplicated, clean and friendly. Thank you

  • We had a great time with Gabriella and George! They are very friendly people and the accommodation is furnished with a lot of love. In the garden there are many small hidden corners where you can retreat and a small beach is only 2 minutes away. The summer kitchen is also in a small house in the garden and has everything you need to cook. In the village are also a few good tavernas, where you can stop in the evening and a small supermarket. With the rental car (which I really recommend in Crete!) You can reach many great places from here in 1-2 hours or less, since the accommodation is located centrally on the island. The nearby motorway did not bother us at all, only the mosquitoes were a bit intrusive. I can only recommend the place, we had a great time!

    Helene2018-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • wonderful place with a fantastic host and if you’re lucky you can rent an oldtimer for a supercheap price!

    Christoph2018-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our week at Gabriella`s place was great! We recommand her and this wunderful and relaxing place! The little village Palaiokastro is cute and not much touristic. You can find the beach at 100 meters from Gabriella´s house and enjoy different delicious food in the Tavernas (very near too).

    Angelique2018-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella's garden is a very special place. I met such interesting kind and generous people there. Gabriella is a great host and is very warm and welcoming. My room was very big with a large balcony looking over the garden. The shared cooking facilities have everything you need and everyone is very respectful of the space. The beach is 2 minutes walk away. There is a supermarket close by and three taverna's.

    Heraklion, Crete, Greece

    Dreaming under 1000 stars on the summer bed. Sleeping at open air, but in a nice and cozy bed ! 100 meters from the sea. 13 km to the main town of Crete, Heraklion. Toilet, shower and the use of the common kitchen. Palaiokastro-Rogdia is a small beautiful bay. Up on the mountain lays the village of Rogdia with an amazing view all over the bay of Heraklion.
  • Gabriella is a very nice person, she has always a smile on her face. Sleeping in this "summer bed" was a nice experience. Be carrefull if you are sensitive to noises, the highway road is not far away. It was just fine for us because it is quite calm at night, but it could be a problem for others. The bed is not huge, but two can fit in it. The place has a particular atmosphere, a little "something" that you wont find in other places. Overall a very good experience, you should definitely try it if you are looking for something different.

    Clément2018-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Everything as described, you sleep in the garden under the stars and Gabriella is welcoming and helpful

    Alessandro2018-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Unique experience at Gabriella where we slept for the first time under the stars. Some adjoining rooms are poorly maintained and the bed is a bit small for 2 but the place exudes a special atmosphere of friendliness and simplicity. This type of night changes daily and it was nice to live this moment that could be described as mystical. Attention for people sensitive to noise, it is better to provide hearing protection because there are inevitably some noise of dog, cock, cars ... Gabriella is welcoming and responsive, I recommend this experience

    Elise2018-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed one night in Gabriellas amezing garden and slept under the stars in a cute and romantic bed. We could have stayed in the garden forever. This experience was all we hoped for. It was so charming. You need a car to stay in the area, but its perfect for roadtrip. We highly recoment this place. Great hospitality. Gabriella is very friendly.

    Cecilie2018-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella's Garden is very nice, peaceful and cozy place for travelers. And Gabriella is very friendly and helpful lady) If you use public transport it could be tough to get out of this place, because most of buses don't stop there, but if you use rented car or something, then no problem.

    Elena2017-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • I spent my last night in Greece at Gabriella's Garden. Sleeping outside was great prior to the long trip back to the states. The bed was comfortable and beautifully set under an olive tree, beside a huge rocky hill. I would've liked to have stayed longer to enjoy the sanctuary that Gabriella's provided on her special piece of land. The beach (with it's super clear blue water) is a short walk away. As is a supermarket (where I would've bought goods to cook in Gabriella's provided kitchenette had I stayed longer). The 5 euro breakfast buffet was delightful. Gabriella is kind and reliable. Her English is good too. The common area, as well as the open air "bedroom", have a mystical feel which was nice to retreat to after visiting the busy beach. Palaiokastro is very small and to my knowledge there's not much there to explore, but it made for the perfect escape from the busy city Heraklion (15 min. away -airport's there). I reccomend staying at Gabriella's Garden for one or a few nights if you have a layover before flying out of Heraklion.

    Madeline2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella is a wonderful host and her place certainly shows her dynamic personality. The bed outside was super nice and we saw a gorgeous sunrise the next day.

    Kate2017-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very interesting atmosphere, sure great idea to come once again.

    Gregory2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • A family run facility, which takes pride in giving excellent service and fine food, using locally sourced and home made produce. The views from the pool bar/ restaurant area are stunning whilst the accommodation and all the facilities ( children's play area and small but well-stocked supermarket) are clean, perfectly adequate and all you need for a Cretian holiday. The staff really care about your stay, giving you all the information or advice you need about touring the island and providing high quality food, cooked by the family in their restaurant, which was better than any we could find in the local area. It's great value and well worth a visit.

    William2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely recommend! Great service and food, and the staff here are fantastic.

    Stephanie2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was more than perfect. Check in, swimming pool, cocktail and snack bar, restaurant and the beach reachable in 5 mins with the car was everything perfect. Best of all the cooking skills of the hosts. Mini-market with essential stuff for brakfast or snacks, fruit and vegetable. Everybody from young to old couples and families with little kids and girl or boygroups are around the swimming pool. Highly recommend this place!

    Ligaria, Crete, Greece

    Sea + City + Culture - 100 m to the beach, perfect and safe for swimming and diving - 13 km to Heraklion the main town of Crete great for shopping, museums, nightlife - 18 km to the palace of Knossos Archeological Side - Strategic place in the center of Crete, it is easy to visit the whole island even in a day-tour We offer also: - cooking classes - Yoga - guided visiting tours - Pranic Healing sessions - Reflexology treatments
  • This place is perfect to discover the real Crete, away from mass tourism. Those who expect luxury here are wrong, the magic of this place lies in its simplicity. The beach is below a road bridge - which at first glance looks like a crime, but turns out to be a blessing - no tourist glut, no hotel castles; in the afternoon a soothing shadow and the peace and seclusion, which one otherwise often seeks in vain. Gabriella is a wonderful person with many interesting tips and information about the country and its people. And if you take a little bit more time, you might get to know quite different, unexpected things.

    Julia2019-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Dear GABRIELLA AND GEORGE, we are very happy that we chose gabriella garden's appartment!! we met two wonderful, generous and kind people....gabriella and george (wait untill you hear his addictive laugh). the rooms we orderd were wonerful and comfortable for our children and us. they are village stone style and even in summer you dont really need air condition (1 fan is totally enough). about 100 meter you have like small private and beautiful shore if you decide to stay the day. the tabernas near by are very good as well. when we needed assistance and explanation about places we wanted to visit, gabriella or george sat with us until we were ready to go. for someone that visited crete for the first time gabriella garden was like an anchor to us. the way to the place is very easy to remember and you can't miss the turn even at night, very very very close to road 90. we enjoyed every day. thank you for your wonderful hospitality!! we miss you and hope to come again!! we recommend it to every one who ask for beautiful and quite appartment and special people. your's lihi and dror from israel

    Lihi2018-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely trip to the past! Gabriellas garden is a lovely place to stay in Crete close to the sea and a short drive away from some of the most beautiful beaches we've seen. A short drive away from heraklion you come to this small village with a couple of family owned tavernas right on the beach. Gabriellas garden is just 1 min walk from the little beach and we really enjoyed our stay there. The property is kept in a really traditional olden Greek style yet is very comfortable and airy - we loved it. Gabriella is a great host. Available, communicative yet allows you your own space to enjoy your stay! Highly recommended

    Stephen2017-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella was welcoming, helpful, and present for anything. Traveling with a baby was very important to her help that allowed us to relax and enjoy the holiday. The location is strategically close to Agia Pelagia and Heraklion. Andrew

    Andrea2017-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice and quiet and with a kind of special and magic. Gabriella helps u with everything and the breakfast is really nice as well.

    Cristina2017-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • A place to preserve mass tourism with a lot of charm. Ideal to discover Crete where it is necessary to have a vehicle if you want to be autonomous. Gabriéla is warm and welcoming.

    Christelle2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly place located very close to the beach, the pension is very nice with a nice decoration of good value, a small tavern is nearby that Gabriella will be able to indicate to you.

    Antoine2017-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella is a wonderful hostess, and is very friendly and inviting. She offers many extras, in a great, varied environment of travelers. She was very nice and accommodating. She can give you tips on shops, dining and many things. She is very knowledgeable about the area. She and George have a wonderful sense of humor and knowledge of the world. They are the best to talk to about anything. She also offers classes in Yoga and Pronic healing that I took. I highly recommend them, in Gabriella's garden and spa! She is a very smart lady. I highly recommend her place to anyone. We had a lovely visit. Rick and Dori Warner, and Susan Kinnear

    Heraklion, Crete, Greece

    A spacious single-room apartment accommodating a family up to 4 people, fully equipped with all modern comforts in the kitchen, air-conditioning, the bathroom. The Elia, inspired by the tree that took Crete to the end of the earth, the fruit blessed for its nutritional value, overlooks the pool of the complex and the sea that spreads out before it.
    Surroundings Between Agia Pelagia and Ligaria. Two calm, sparkling clean beaches cooled down by the clear blue that stretches before them. Just a few minutes’ drive from the centre of Heraklion, the Agnanti complex with the six separate areas of accommodation, gazes from high up into the splendour of the sea and the tranquillity of the surrounding Cretan landscape, wild and hospitable all at once. From the organised exterior but also from all interior spaces, the view sprawls uninterrupted, beckoning for exploration and relaxation. A spacious single-room apartment accommodating a family up to 4 people, fully equipped with all modern comforts in the kitchen, air-conditioning, the bathroom. The Elia, inspired by the tree that took Crete to the end of the earth, the fruit blessed for its nutritional value, overlooks the pool of the complex and the sea that spreads out before it. Small decorative strokes, details of mindfulness in the kitchen and bathroom, soft and fragrant linen, all contribute to the fashioning of a warm, friendly place of accommodation.
    **** Some info of the near bays *** The beautiful and calm gulf of LYGARIA in only 400m away. It is a lovely narrow stretch of sand with calm and warm crystal clear waters. Watersports, scuba diving, sea beds, super markets and fish tavernas make this spot one of the most famous in the area. The AGIA PELAGIA sandy bay is about 2 Km away. It is protected from the north winds, and the sea is almost always calm. AGIA PELAGIA village has developed around its shores, so that's where you'll find many of the tavernas and cafeterias. In the center of Agia Pelagia you will find a super market, tourism offices, pharmacy, an ATM, tourist and souvenir shops and the taxi stand. There are many restaurants and tavernas featuring Cretan, Greek or international cuisine, and all have a beautiful view of the sea. As you dine in Agia Pelagia, you can also partake of the wonderful scenes around you, and snap these memories into a treasured photo album: the various shades of the rippling sea, the cute little kid building a sand castle, the old fishing boats anchored in the bay, the fishermen preparing their nets for the night's labour! Beautiful and peaceful, non crowded neighborhood Just 15 to 20 min drive from the airport. The place has a secure private parking for your car.
  • This place was amazing George was an amazing host he told us about local hot spots and let us use his BBQ. This place has everything and would be great for larger parties as he has several rooms.

    Andrew2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Peace and quiet with a relaxed warm friendly host

    Clare2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • One beach in walking distance and another a five minute drive. Both with beautifully clear water. Apartment as described and George is a friendly and helpfulness host. We explored a lot of Crete so it was perfect to be able to come and go as we needed and have a lovely place to come home to with a fridge for cold beer 😉

    Fran2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice stay. George’s communication was brilliant, we received a personal welcome and introduction to all the facilities. George also messaged us with recommendations of things to do and places to eat. We made use of the washing machine, gym and the pool. We didn’t cook dinner for ourselves as the tavernas nearby were so good. The equipment in the apartment is excellent including toaster, sandwich grill and microwave. Exactly as the photo, our apartment was right by the pool so we enjoyed breakfast on our patio in the sun. The view is simply stunning! The location is also quiet.

    Dawn2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was nice and clean. George is a very friendly and considered host. Besides the baby cod, he provided also baby bath and baby chair, even we didn’t particularly ask for these items. George also gave us his recommendation for restaurants, places to go etc. Thanks a lot!

    Katharina2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • George's hospitality, quick communication and local recommendations helped make our stay a very enjoyable one. The pool was lovely and the apartment was cosy. Exactly what we were looking for.

    Colin2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This was a splendid spot to stay!! The communication was great as for we loved the fact we could check in early (due to early morning ferry arrival). George was there to greet us and show us around the property. Our room was very spacious. George sent us some local tips on eating and sight seeing and told us that the beach was literally just a 10min walk down the road. George was also able to arrange a taxi for us to return to the port. Highly recommend one gets a vehicle so you can explore more of this beautiful island!!

    Tawnya2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • George was attentive and gracious throughout our stay. Helpful in every way. The views are amazing. Comfortable unit except the A/C is not cool enough in the bedroom. Only a slight inconvenience. I would certainly stay again.

    Agia Pelagia , Heraklion Crete, Greece

    In the heart of Crete, 17 km from Heraklion, at the coastal Palaiokastro (Old Castle), with the amazing hills covered with olive trees, the wonderful nature and the infinite blue, with a beautiful beach and a charming typical Cretan village….we invite you to experience the magic of this place with us. At the foot of a hill we have built a small paradise for your holidays.
    This modern Villa has a private swimming pool of about 25 m2 with whirlpools. The ground floor consists of a kitchen with all modern amenities and with a gas and electric cooker, an oven and a microwave and there is also a WC, a dining room and a sitting room in the same room. The first floor consists of 3 bedrooms, the master bedroom (24 m2) which has its own bathroom and there is also another bathroom for the other 2 bedrooms. All rooms are equipped with air-condition, TV sets and central heating. There is an internet connection and an alarm system for your own safety. From the spacious balconies in all bedrooms and you can enjoy the amazing view from all rooms of the villas, ground floor and first floor. There is also a private parking area for your cars. You got a small glimpse of your place of choice for your holidays! Saying our goodbyes, we’ll keep your satisfactory smile as a souvenir and as a promise…..that you’ll come back to us!
    Many locals have chosen to live in “Palaiokastro” because the city Heraklion is just 10’ drive via the E-75 national road. This quiet “suburb” of Heraklion can combine quietness, calmed and relaxed atmosphere that a village can provide and at the same time being able to be in the centre without having to think of the traffic that normally it is the biggest problem in a city.
  • Palaiokastro Villa is a well-designed and maintained place, located in a quiet village just 20 minutes drive from Heraklion. The sunrise view is breathtaking. Vasilis (Sr.) and Magdalena stayed late to greet us on arrival, explained everything about the house and provided house-warming gifts, that we sincerely appreciated. Magdalena's help over all days of our stay much exceeded AirBNB standards, and all-in-all contributed to making our vacation in Crete truly memorable! Thank you, guys!

    Boris2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing villa in a quiet location but only a few minutes walk to the beach/tavernas/small supermarket. The villa is well maintained and the communication from the host(s) is first class. We had a bit of a disastrous start to our holiday with the hire car co. closing early (my fault as I booked the cheapest...) but the family were good enough to wait for us to check-in and helped me order a taxi the next day. The fridge was stocked with fruit and a few local goodies which saw us through breakfast the next morning and a few other treats appeared during the week😏. This family go over and above what is expected to make sure your stay is a memorable one, well-done.

    Martin2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located in a pastoral place among the mountains and within walking distance of a nice beach that also has a café. A 20 minute drive from the Heraklion, you must rent a car to reach the villa. The villa itself is large and spacious and the hosts are nice and available for any question. We enjoyed our stay in Crete and we thank Magdalena and Vassilis

    Samuel2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Magdalena and Vasilis were very good hosts. The villa is lovely and very spacious. It is a quiet area. Cold water, milk, basket of fruits, honey were provided on our arrival and hosts were there to welcome us.We had a lovely stay. There was no dishwasher there as mentioned in the amenities but when I pointed it out, Magdalena said we could leave the dishes after use and it would be taken care of. There is a nice local shop nearby ,7/8 minutes walk. Overall a good experience. Thanks for hosting me and my family, Magdalena and Vasilis.

    Shalini2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, we really enjoyed it

    Randall2019-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • We lived our visit at Vasilis’s place! The location in Crete was perfect for our first visit to Crete as we travelled to both the east and west coast of the island. The house/duplex was very clean and my teenage children enjoyed having their own rooms. The kitchen was in working order and we cooked there one night after a long day of driving. We loved the view from the terrace. We could hear the goats on the hillside and enjoyed the early June breeze as we watched the goats move along the terrain. The pool was sparkling clean and looked refreshing! Our super hosts, Vasilis and Magdalena gave us the best advice on where to visit and eat. Thank you so much for making our trip so memorable and special!

    Cynthia2019-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in Vasilis’s villa! It’s so clean and beautiful, looks exactly like the photos, the location just outside of Heraklion was ideal, plus being in the little village made us feel like locals. The pool is great and there’s a nice beach at the bottom of the hill you can easily walk to in 5-10 minutes. There are a few restaurants in the village as well as a small market. We had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our time. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and check in was a breeze. Throughout our stay we found gifts of pastries and cookies left for us, too. We didn’t want to leave! I will definitely stay here again when i return to Crete. Highly recommended!!

    Elaine2018-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were wonderful and we felt like home. Our vacation was stress-free and the location was not a typical tourist spot. The beach was wonderful and very clean. We did however need to rent a car for daily excursions. We would like to thank Magdalena for her great suggestions, and would very much like to return one day.

  • Gabriella’s garden is an ideal place for people who want a chilled, quiet and simple holiday. There are a lot common areas to relax in the garden. Breakfast is great- everyday she served a different stuff which fills you. There is always good music on the background. The beach is very clean and closeby. Tavernas in the village are very nice and good value for money. I highly recommend Καφέ-μεζεδοπωλείο Βαρσαμάς, which is the one in the village, not by the beach. Gabriella is a great host as well. We simplyhad a great time- highly recommended!

  • Don’t even think about it book it now! I stayed one month at gabys and my only regret was leaving. Gaby is an amazing host she made me feel at home throughout my entire stay, she is an amazing yoga and meditation teacher as well, we did yoga in some of the best places with the most breathtaking view I Truly recommend taking a class, also check out her jewelry It’s really beautiful work. The beach it’s only les then a min away! And it’s not touristy at all so you will enjoy some peace and quiet. The best place to eat it’s on the way to the beach called Taverna Loukakis, Niko the owner it’s just amazing host he will help you with everything you need and the food is delicious and excellent price too. There is a mini market like 1 min away (everything is really close) there you will find everything you need and good price as well. If you want a place where you can reconnect with yourself away from the chaotic touristic places and enjoy some peace and quiet time with some breathtaking views this is your place.

  • Gabriella was very kind and made us feel at home. A perfect place to take a break coming from Heraclion. The little tourist town has an authentic charm with no frills, simple and out of the tourist circuit. Recommended for those who love stages off the beaten track.

    Michela2018-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella is very kind and helpful. He speaks very good Italian and English so it is easy to communicate with her. The place is very nice and welcoming and convenient for visiting the places around the capital. The rooms are very nice and some have a large terrace. Highly recommended!

  • We had a great stay with Gabriella who was helpful and quick to response. The place is really close to the beach with a parking place and easy access to Iran lion. There is a place to chill out. Recommended!

    Szymon2018-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella was very welcoming ! Our flight was delayed 5 hours but she was still up to welcome us with a great meal. Her place is about 200m away from a beach so it’s not even a 2 minute walk which is awesome! Our biggest regret was not being able to take a cooking class, but we hope one day to be back and take one then!

    Tetiana2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • We rest in the villa for the second time! And they intend to rest with George again and again! The villa, like last time, is very clean and comfortable. Everything, absolutely everything is there for a secluded vacation. There was a new furniture in the bedroom and a lot of all household appliances in the form of a mixer, coffee maker, juicer, etc. Will definitely come back here again !!!!!

    Ольга2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is fully consistent with the description. From location to comfort. Great view from the terrace, convenient parking, high ceilings, the kitchen is equipped with everything necessary for culinary delights. There is everything for the convenience of stay: washing machine, iron, hairdryer, safe, two air conditioners, stereo, etc. Regarding the road to the villa ... The road is good, no difficulties or fears caused. In general, we rested chic! Thanks, George !!!

    Ольга2018-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • What a pleasure it was staying with George. He was very helpful and kind and made our trip as good as it could get! Thanks!

    Max2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at George’s villa. First it is quite spacious and has a balcony with a lovely view. Second it is conveniently located very close (10 minutes walk) to the Palaiokastro beach. Finally it was sparkling clean. Actually more than that. The linen and towels still had that smell after being ironed :). George himself is very friendly, helpful and ready to assist with anything. We are definitely looking forward to coming back!

    Jessica2018-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • The appartment is beautiful and clean with a beautiful view. It has everything you need for a short or long-term stay. It is in a very quiet corner of Palaiokastro up on the slope. Giorgos is an excellent host, he would always respond to messages within a couple of minutes. You can reach Heraklion city in ca. 20 minutes through the highway. The only disadvantage is that the appartment is on a dirt road reached by a steep damaged asphalt road. The area is very beautiful, quiet and safe though. In the late summer evenings and early mornings you are reached by beautiful smell of jasmin planted at the entrance to the building. Higly requested stay if you are looking for calm and quiet and do not mind the kind of adventurous road. I stayed at the appartment for a little less than two months in the summer of 2018.

    Vaidas2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • George apartment was AMAZING. We had everything we needed and even more! We had a whole outdoor space to ourselves with a beautiful vue. The beach nearby was perfect and not too crowdy. We recommand George’s flat without a doubt and we plan to book again for future vacations. You won’t be disappointed.

    Catherine2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • George is a very great host! The service was perfect, George helped us and answered quickly on every request. Villa is wonderful, amazing view, all necessary things were and gorgeous terrasa and garden! George, many thanks for our comfortable vacations! Hope that we will come back next summer!

    Ксения2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend to everyone. Lovely apartment in a small village with its own private beach. The owner met in person, climbing the house on a dirt road, so take the car more powerful. Georg is a fine and sensitive master. In your arrangement there will also be a terrace with a beautiful view. 10 out of 10. If I once again go to this coast of the island, then stop immediately without hesitation.

    Dmitrii2018-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at George was great. The apartment is very clean and well maintained. We had a very nice time and George has been a very nice host. Almost every day he has inquired about our well-being and if we need something, really great !!! Thank you George. If you want to stay with George, you will want for nothing, but it is absolutely necessary to have a car!

    Thomas2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • George is a very nice person who ensures that these tenants do not miss anything, he is available quickly to answer any questions that may be asked. The apartment is very nice it lacks nothing and the terrace is beautiful ... the only downside and location because the road leading to it is difficult with a regular car a 4x4 will be the top otherwise everything is perfect! If one day I should go back to Crete, without hesitation I would go back to George's apartment

    Elodie2018-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Just great - George and his sister are great hosts. For questions or similar we could contact both directly. He always asked if we needed anything. Now to the apartment: you can not have breakfast more beautiful ... really great view! Quiet and secluded apartment that lacks nothing. There is nothing to complain about, even if the way to the apartment is a bit steep and bumpy. But that too has charm and can be mastered It was just a great holiday and the value for money is great. The "own" beach is also recommended, because there, if at all, only a few people go. Thank you two for this beautiful holiday! Highly recommended

    Heraklion, Crete Region, Greece

    In the heart of Crete, 17 km from Heraklion, at the coastal Palaiokastro (Old Castle), with the amazing hills covered with olive trees, the wonderful nature and the infinite blue, with a beautiful beach and a charming typical Cretan village….we invite you to experience the magic of this place with us. At the foot of a hill we have built a small paradise for your holidays.
    This luxury Villa has a private swimming pool of about 25 m2 with whirlpools. The ground floor consists of a kitchen with all modern amenities and with a gas and electric cooker, an oven and a microwave and there is also a WC, a dining room and a sitting room in the same room. The first floor consists of 3 bedrooms, the master bedroom (24 m2) which has its own bathroom and there is also another bathroom for the other 2 bedrooms. All rooms are equipped with air-condition, TV sets and central heating. There is an internet connection and an alarm system for your own safety. From the spacious balconies in all bedrooms and you can enjoy the amazing view from all rooms of the villas, ground floor and first floor. There is also a private parking area for your cars. You got a small glimpse of your place of choice for your holidays! Saying our goodbyes, we’ll keep your satisfactory smile as a souvenir and as a promise…..that you’ll come back to us!
    Many locals have chosen to live in “Palaiokastro” because the city Heraklion is just 10’ drive via the E-75 national road. This quiet “suburb” of Heraklion can combine quietness, calmed and relaxed atmosphere that a village can provide and at the same time being able to be in the centre without having to think of the traffic that normally it is the biggest problem in a city.
  • Great hosts, really good house and great location.

    Antony2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay, villa has a stunning positioning, great views across Palaiokastro village and the sea. Vasilis is a great host, we've been treated wonderful, from beginning to the end. We've received great suggestions about beaches, restaurants, supermarkets close to the property. Strongly recommend the Amoudaria beach (13 mins. away) and the tavern in the nearby small port, Pantanassa. It would be hard to complain about something as we had a great one-week stay. Maybe just one thing has to be fixed: the mousquito net from the main living room was apparently destroyed by some former guests and was not yet replaced, it caused a bit of a headache in the evenings. But, again, it's a small detail. We'd definitely recommend the villa for any group/family interested in a more quiet and peaceful Crete vacation than the major hotel/resorts by the beach. If you rent a car, you can easily get to any beach around or to Heraklion.

    Tudor2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • It was our first visit to Crete with 3 boys (8-13yrs). Communication, cleanliness, advice, check-in and apartment where great and in line with other reviews. We were warmly welcomed and great advice provided on places to go. The location was well situated with easy access to all amenities. Thank you!

    Ben2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • My friends and I stayed in this villa in June 2019. Since the beginning, the hosts helped us to prepare our trip. They were always available to answer our questions and providing us important information to make our trip awesome and unforgettable. We were welcomed by Vassilis and his uncle who are very nice, the house was tidy & cleaned. The service was awesome with kind gestures (fruits, local products, towels..) They gave us all information needed for food and activities.   The villa itself is beautiful with a nice & relaxing view, it is the perfect spot to enjoy & take out your stress. It is perfectly as shown in pictures or even better.   They were also available by whatsapp to answer our questions and give us tips/help to enjoy our trip in Creta   The uncle came once to give us delicious greek cookies, we really appreciated this gesture. To finish, we recommend 100% this villa   See you again

    Ibrahim2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • What a find !!! Beautiful villa overlooking the sea. Decor is stylish and outside pool area wonderfully relaxing . All appliances and bedding were excellebt and all home comforts supplied and the whole place is spotless. The added magic is Vasillis( there are two of them !!) whose hospitality and desire to ensure we had all we needed was exceptional . From handy hints on where to visit to organising car hire and supplying delicious Greek goodies from the Baker, these Superhosts delivered Greek hospitality that we won’t forget Thiroughly enjoyed the whole family holiday and could not recommend more highly

    Chris2018-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our family of three just returned from our trip to Crete and a wonderful stay at Vassilis place. We were welcomed on arrival by Vassilis and family who gave us a tour of the place, answered our questions and provided us with great tips of beaches and restaurants to visit - all much appreciated. The house itself is modern, has all that you need, a local shop for urgent bits and off course the lovely pool and great views. Having a car made it was easy to get about and to most sites we wanted to visit e.g. waterparks. Big Vassilis was very attentive and really kind ... he provided us each day with greek delicacies as well as BBQ meat on the Sunday when his family gathered next door for their meal (that was totally unexpected and really lovely!) Overall we would highly recommend this place and would not hesitate to stay on a next trip!

    Simone2018-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend staying at this villa. Not only are the accommodations incredibly appointed, but the host goes above and beyond to make you feel like family. Trust me, take Vasilis up on his tips and advice, it will make for an amazing stay!

    Eric2018-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • We all had a fabulous time in Crete and our holiday was made special by having excellent acomodation and excellent hosts. The house was everything we expected and more. Spacious and beautifully finished in each room. The pool was perfect for taking in the view. The location was peaceful and relaxing. Heraklion was however only a short drive down the coast so everything felt accessible. Our hosts were perfect and gave us help throughout the trip when we asked for recommendations for food and sites to see. This was very helpful and was spot on for our needs. I cannot imagine finding better hosts or such beautiful and comfortable accommodation. Thank you.

  • Giannis is a great host and excellent at responding instantly with whatever questions we had. His dog was around the property and we asked to let him roam free which was a joyful touch as we love animals and it was very well behaved and a wonderful company. Great views of the sea and very convenient location if you have a car. All in all a great experience. We will definitely try to go back if we are in town.

    Matthaios2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • extremely beautiful house with a friendly dog. beyond my expectation. you have almost everything you need. near the beach. perfect.

    2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is even more beautiful than in the photos - the details and style make it feel comfortable and homey. There is plenty of lounging space both inside and out for relaxing and enjoying the weather. We stayed a week; the location is great for day-tripping to many locations on Crete.

    Dawn2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • What a find!! I would highly recommend Giannis's place. It has the love!!! Communications was perfect. Location is perfect. There is a small supermarket really close and the beach with stunning restaurants is only 1.3km away. It's uphill when you walk back, but took only 18 minutes. There are several beaches nearby. Lygaria beach is quieter with less people and is as beautiful as Agia Pelagia. Near Heraklion but you'll need a car to get there. Only 20 minutes by car. Also very easy to explore the rest of Crete as it's nicely in the middle. We stayed for eight days and Giannis left us so much fruit from their orchid that we could not finish everyting! Best oranges and pomegranets ever! This is a very special place. Peaceful and beautiful. I would recommend it anytime!

Communication with the host was great, always helpful and the dog was very sweet!

  • What a week we have just had! Amazing location at the very top of Agia Pelagia! The home was absolutely beautiful..Giannis mother met us on arrival which was late at night..a lovely lady who didn’t speak much English but we managed just fine, she showed us into her home which was just outstanding..the terrace and garden were just perfect..there was a lovely bowl of fruit all hand picked from their own garden, water and milk in the fridge and a lovely home made pizza waiting for us..can’t fault anything about it! And then there was Cooper the families dog who would greet us on the drive after a day out, so loving! Love love loved our stay in Crete and would not hesitate to come back and visit again..thank you so much..Emma and Paul

    We are a family run guesthouse in a typical Cretan style. The beach is 100 meters distance from the house and from Palaiokastro it is very easy to visit most of the island even in a day trip. Only 18 km far from the airport, it is also ideal for arriving days on the island, organize a rental car (we rent them, we can prepare an offer for you). Also for your departure day it is perfect, easy to reach, we have parking places free, directly next to the house.

  • Gabriella is a unique host .. She was able to make us feel good on arrival .. we did not participate in his cooking class (A regrets) but we had dinner with her and other people who lived on site .. a great evening! In all simplicity and generosity !! Laughs, anecdotes, games ... a very beautiful experience in Cretan land .. See you soon Gabriella

    Flutra2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • We spent two nights at Gabriella's place. The first night was in the so called summer bed in the backyard. It is a beautiful place in the garden, but not really everyone's cup of tea. So we talked to her and she was very kind and offered us a room inside immediately, which was fresh and nice and we had a wonderful night. Gabriella is a very good host. We would go back there and recommend it.

    Tobias2018-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • The distance to the beach is only about 100 meters. The beach is rocky but small and beautiful and few tourists mostly locals. There are 3 taverns with Greek specialties cheap and delicious. Every day (Mon-Fri) a bus leaves from the beach to Heraklion for about € 2 per person. From Heraklion many bus connections to everywhere in Crete.

    Marina2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • You need to be romantic and easy going to stay here. The place made with care. It will help your recreation. We loved it and hope to get back one day.

  • Gabriella is a great hostess! Our night in the summer bed with a star view was fantastic and a special holiday experience. Gabriellas Garden is a special place, which we keep in good memories.

    Hans2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • It is very special place – especially cosy, dreamy, and friendly. An absolute nice starting point to discover beautiful Crete.

    Carina2017-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • This night under the stars Gabriella was an interesting experience for the whole family (a first for children). Awakened early by the sounds of nature we opted for an early morning bath at the nearby beach then regaled with a hearty breakfast prepared by Gabriella. The beds are in a secluded part of the house with access to a corner for the toilet (summary but adequate for one night). Only flat the mosquitoes despite the anti-mosquitos provided but it is part of the game.

    Nathalie2017-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • The hotel is located in the center of Crete, just a few steps from the beach and the beach.

  • We should not really tell you about this amazing apartment as we will hopefully be booking again ... We had two overnight stays on our way to and from Crete by ferry ... We were travelling with our own car, arriving late and departing early so it was excellent find somewhere with off road parking, close the the city and the docks but in the opposite direction to the airport ... The apartment is immaculate and is a little oasis in the city.

    Liz2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent 1 night stay. Self contained detached apartment behind Natura Greek Souvenir shop. You park just outside your door and are in the middle of everything you need/ the tourist strip of Ammoudara: restaurants, bars, souvenirs shops etc. Has hot water, coffee, fully equipped kitchen, good A/C. Host was quick to respond and accommodated our last minute check in too! Thank you! Recommended.

  • This place is just as amazing in person as it looks in the pictures. Vasilis is very helpful on where to go and all the good spots! Thank you guys for everything you did for us. Will definitely be staying here again.

    Michael2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Vasilis for being such a great host to me and my family for the past month. It was such an honour to be able to know you and Mike. it's our first time in Crete and the host Vasilis was there to welcome us and showed us around the island for the nearest shops and supermarkets. As we were not familiar with the place, he even offered to chauffeur us to the nearest supermarket to buy groceries. There were so many things that we aren't aware of, and he will always be available to help us. These little touches were something that he need not do, but he still helped us and we are grateful for it. The apartment is very spacious and there are enough amenities for us to utilise. I loved the pool especially when people can go to have their swim everyday, or just simply reading a book or suntanning. The scenaries in the balcony were magnificent and the place gets quote cooling throughout the night. The best place to stay and relax when you are in Crete. Very highly recommended to all friends and everyone. Thank you so much once again and all the best to you and your family. (:

  • An exceptional place for a relaxing holiday with a generous table d'hôte and very good quality. The resort is great. The beach 10 minutes walk with snorkling and nice views. A great welcome from george and fofi always available.

    Anne Gaelle2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnb’s I’ve ever booked. Fofi & George were the sweetest - they welcomed us with so much joy and love. And both of them are really funny! The apartment is located on a hill which was a bit difficult to reach at first (but got once you know how to handle the car and the Greek mountains - it’s an easy game). When we got up there we had the most amazing view. That was the first time we thought we choose the perfect space. From there on everything went better and better. The apartment complex was decorated with so much love and you can definitely feel the good energy of George & Fofi. And on top of that, there is a beautiful beach just 7min away (by walking) with nice tavernas nearby. All in all we had a perfect stay and we’re looking forward to come back - for sure!

    Amanda2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this accommodation. The calm is order, the pool is very beautiful, the sea is close. The accommodation is very clean, the bedding is really very comfortable. The decor is very good taste and not to mention the hosts are exceptional: a very great kindness and good advice.

    Amelie2019-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Bellevue for a week. The place was even better than expected! Perfect location if you want tranquility , stunning sea views, and easy access to beaches and tavernas. Beautiful big pool with no chlorine. The appartment was all shades of blue ( very Mama Mia!) and very well thought out with lovely touches to add to your comfort. Our hosts were lovely and keen to ensure that we enjoyed our stay and also very helpful for any local information we needed. We would highly recommend Bellevue to anyone who wishes to be away from busy locations. A car is recommended giving easy access for sightseeing. Over the years we have visited many Greek islands, and Crete has been one of the best. We loved it

    Patricia2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay at Bellevue Village! Beautiful apartment with all the amenities you need, plenty of space, clean and stylish with a lovely private garden area and balcony overlooking the sea. Beautiful swimming pool and the surrounding views are spectacular! George and Fofi are very hospitable hosts and take great care of you upon and arrival and on your stay, very friendly and even prepared a snack for us as we arrived late, we would not of got chance to eat otherwise so it was a very nice touch from them, they also gave us a gift on departure! Would 100% Recommend Bellevue Village and can not wait to visit again Many Thanks Nathan & Heather

  • A beautiful AirBnB, fully equipped, quietly located in a small village 15 minutes drive from Heraklion. As often in Crete, the address is not very precise: it is better to enter the coordinates directly into the GPS (via the AirBnB website, we get lost!). That said, Nikos very kindly came to find me where I stopped and escorted me to the apartment.

    Candice2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Nikos is a fantastic host that goes beyond what any other host would do for a guest. Felt super welcomed and had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The place is just a short sub 10 min drive from the beach, up on the hills on a ver quiet and calm village. In the apartment you will have all the essentials for an easy stay. Will come back again. Thanks Nikos!

    Nuno2019-10-23T00:00:00Z

  • Nikos's house is spotlessly clean, modern, in a very quiet neighborhood. It has beautiful and simple décor. The kitchen is complete. We really didn't miss anything during cooking both from utensils to materials. The bedroom just lovely. Great advantages also include private parking inside the premises and high speed internet. Nikos is a polite and discreet host, willing to help with anything that is very controversial. Highly recommend it and will definitely visit again! Thank you so much Nick!

    Nadia2019-10-07T00:00:00Z

  • The apartment was amazing. After a long day of sightseeing it was perfect to unwind and relax. It is stylish, clean and has everything what you need to feel like you're home! But despite apartment being so awesome, Nikos is an incredible help. He is communicative as hell, always there for you (really, anytime) and even if you don't ask, he will give you directions where to eat local food or where to go. Do yourself a favor and book your vacation at Nikos place!

    Monika2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nikos is very friendly host, super patient and always around if needed. We enjoyed his place and felt like at home immediately. Nikos 's place is perfect for those who don t wanna stay at busy areas of the city and those enjoying peace and guiet of village. At the same time it s just a short drive from airport and beach is also close by. The apartment has everything for short or longer stay. We definitely recommend Nikos 's place and would book again when on Crete.

  • Newly renovated apartment. Provided with everything you need. Dimitris met personally, even though we arrived late. I could define the location of the house a bit uncomfortable. If you do not have GPS, it becomes difficult, considering that there are neither street names nor street numbers. For the rest, everything is perfect. Thanks Dimitris :)

    Elena2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a great place. The private path down to the little cove is priceless, quiet and secluded. The other beaches on either side are very nice too. Host was great, picking us up at Heraklion and very helpful. Would love to come back.

    Matthew2019-10-04T00:00:00Z

  • Incredible views, warm friendly hospitality and a comfortable stay - what more could you want! We really enjoyed our time at Bellevue. From the moment we arrived, our hosts were extremely warm and gave us some refreshment and lots of helpful information about the local area, where to visit and where to eat. They can provide a lovely breakfast, and even occasional evening meal, both for a modest charge, but we stocked our fridge with a few things from Agia Pelagia and most mornings we sat on our veranda enjoying the peace and warmth. Bellevue is near the top of a hill which does mean that walking to the local restaurants and shops involves a little bit of effort (about 10 minutes down and 15 back up), but the views are really incredible and we spent several hours just relaxing and reading watching the boats come and go. In the evenings, you can occasionally hear some of the entertainment from hotels on neighbouring hills, but the mornings and afternoons are sublimely tranquil; we could've happily stayed there another week or two. The apartment we were in (222) was spacious, cool and comfortable and had everything we needed, and if it gets too hot to sit outside you can still get great views lying on the daybed just inside the door. You may get visited by some of the local cats; if you ignore them they will leave you alone, but we befriended them and really enjoyed their company too. When we did visit some local beaches, they had parasol umbrellas we could borrow for shade so we didn't need to pay to use the ubiquitous sun loungers, and this was really appreciated too. If/when we come back to Crete, Bellevue will definitely be on our list.

  • Charming place, breathtaking views, small table d'hôte dinner offered at very affordable prices, George and Lofi are very welcoming .. a good address!

    Blanche2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay simply the best place to stay amazing host amazing space perfect to unwind and take in all Crete has to offer 5 stars xx

  • My partner and I stayed at Bellevue in July, and we could not have had a better time, the accommodation is absolutely stunning and relaxing, better than we expected, from the welcome to the goodbye we had an absolutely fantastic time. George and Fofi are the best hosts I have ever come across, always attentive and willing to help you with anything, even getting rid of a spider! Fofi does most of the cooking at the restaurant they have and we ended up eating at Bellevue most nights as the food was better than the surrounding restaurants. The location is great, it’s only a five minute walk down to Ligaria beach which is mostly Greek locals which is nice if you are looking to get away from the tourists, there is also nearby villages and bays that are great to visit but you will need a car, unless you are very fit and good with steep hills. I can honestly say there was not one downside to staying at Bellevue, I can’t recommend it high enough!!

    Aaron2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • It is with pleasure that I recommend the villa Bellevue. You will be very welcome by my new friend George. I had a great week stay. The view is incredible and comfort is at the rendezvous. I will be back without hesitation if new trip to Crete. Thank you for all my friend George.

    John2018-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • George was a really attentive host throughout our stay in Crete . He and his wife are very welcoming and helpful giving us information about the area and even teaching us a few Greek words. The apartment and location is stunning and we would love to come back soon. ευχαριστώ

    Heraklion, Crete, Greece

    Cozy new studio, wth modern Cycladic style in great location close to the sea and 2 beautiful popular beaches. 200m distance from sea 900 m through road to Agia Pelagia beach , 500 m to Lygaria beach. Both 10 minutes walk far. Also 250m private access path til a quite rock path of the coast without people around. Free pick up from heraklion airport after communication.
    27 sq.m. + balconies. Furnitures and accesories are new (2017, 2018 and 2019) and I tried to make it comfortable in details. Also has has new air condition. Exterior front yard has unique view to the sea. Kitchen is small but full equipped including small oven, 1 stove with pots, toaster, boiler, coffee machine.
    Located at the Hill between 2 beautiful calm beaches. Agia Pelagia and Lygaria beach. THe neighborhood is quite, and it's close but not right on main street so generally there is not noise from cars. There is a small super market at 100m distance and more at the beach. Also at both beaches (10 minutes walking) there are more super markets and many good quality restaurants at standard normal prices.
  • Nice and above all clean apartment with nice view to the sea. A small supermarket is also just around the corner - the house is quiet. The highlight is the proximity to the two beaches. The Ligaria beach is not very big but very nice to relax. From the house a steep path leads to the sea. Here you can jump in calm weather directly from the rocks into the water. The host has always responded very quickly and has also given us an insider tip in terms of restaurants. We liked it very much!

    Anna-Lena2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Dimiatris is a lovely host- helpful and kind. The apartment is better than the photos! It's perfect for a couple to stay in and has everything you need. Close walking distance to 2 lovely beaches; one of which requires a steep walk but its good exercise. The view from the balcony is wonderful. We had a lovely stay and would come here again!

    Laura-Louise2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Very welcome: Dimitris picked me up at the airport. Arrived there he invited me to his house and offered me drinks and fruit while the apartment was ready (I arrived well before 14h, check-in normal time but he and his wife are arranged so that I can integrate the apartment sooner). A bottle of water was waiting for me in the fridge. Apartment very clean, bright, spacious and nicely decorated. Exceptional sea view from the terrace. A table and chairs on the terrace if you want to have breakfast in front of this beautiful landscape. The 2 beaches are really close, you can walk there. (3 if you count the secret beach behind the house). The weather was nice every day, but lots of wind. Water sports of all kinds on the 2 beaches. Many restaurants, some supermarkets and a pharmacy nearby. Bus stops and car rentals also. I tried several beachside restaurants all excellent and not too expensive. If you do not want to eat every day in the restaurant, there is everything you need in the kitchen to prepare yourself to eat (except microwaves). No need to load too much, I left with a cabin baggage and it was more than enough. Towel and beach towels are provided, shower gel, soap and shampoo also. A large basin and laundry provided to wash his laundry by hand. A drying rack is available on the terrace. Level privacy is impeccable since the apartment is really independent. However, Dimitris lives in the apartment opposite and you can go knock on his door if needed. I slept very well: very comfortable bed and the air conditioning is a big plus, very appreciable during the night. The apartment is located in a quiet place, you will hear only the sound of the wind and the song of the cicadas. I had a great stay, relaxing and exotic. Finally, Dimitris was also kind enough to take me back to the airport the day I left. I was sad to leave, but I will come back for sure! :)

    Gabriel2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Dimitris’s home is an absolute gem if you are travelling to Crete. It is spotless, is in a sensational location and has a really relaxed feel about it. Dimitris is incredibly generous and kind. Would highly recommend a stay here if you are travelling to Crete!

    Gina2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dimitris was a nice, helpful host who picked us up from the airport and took us there. For questions he was always approachable. The apartment was big enough for 2 persons and also had a balcony. It was clean and had a good equipment (fridge, oven, kettle). The area had a lot to offer, 2 beaches in the immediate vicinity (about 5-10min.). 100 meters away, was a small market and restaurants were on the beach.

    Niklas2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was very nice especially with its own bay. There you were alone and also had shade and sun during the day. Dimitris and his fiance were extremely nice and helpful. We have nothing to complain about.

    Laura2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! I recommend

    Audrey2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We've had a great time at Dimitris'! The apartment is really nice - the interior is thought through really well. It was perfectly clean and the host was always making an effort to answer us all our questions and teach us facts about the island, the people and the greek culture. We highly recommend him as a host and his apartments in general. We were even allowed to use his fishing equipment and his kayak's. Agia Pelagia is a nice town at the coast, you can easily rent a car to explore the whole island or have a wonderful stay at the beaches nearby the house. We've enjoyed this trip a lot and want to say thank you to Dimitris and his fiancée who really earned the title 'superhost'!

  • Before the arrival, all questions were answered quickly and in detail. We were greeted by George very friendly, already at the welcome there was a refreshing and very helpful tips to explore the island. The pictures do not live up to the reality it is much nicer to see this place and the rooms live. It was so indescribably beautiful that we can tell everyone to book the accommodations and magical place. We would especially like to highlight the souvlaki, which was freshly prepared especially for us in the evening. For breakfasters, the selection is a dream. The two know exactly how to treat guests and have been there for us at all times. We will definitely come back in the future and are already looking forward :) Anna and Sofia from Heinsberg

    Sofia2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place, very clean. A calm and relaxing place, a splendid view. Georges and his wife are great hosts, very friendly, caring for their guests. I highly recommend.

    Mathilde2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at George's. The view is beautiful, the rooms are tastefully decorated. In addition, the dishes on the terrace are better than the restaurants in the area. We will come back with pleasure!

    Marie2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • It was all wonderful!

    Anahit2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • FR / EN: Airbnb, can you put 6 stars in George? :-) I have rarely been so well received from all my travels. I spent an incredible time on the comparators of hotels and Airbnb to find a good accommodation. And there, we found a real treasure! The view is amazing, the villa is beautiful, clean, well maintained. The pool is really big and clean! The interior of the apartment is absolutely charming, the decoration is beautiful and typical. The beach is located 5 minutes walk, really. The return will be a little more difficult but it is done in 8 minutes, it's great! This beach is also very beautiful. You are a 20-minute walk or 5-minute drive to the center where you can eat in good restaurants recommended by George. It is also very easy to go on foot or by car. If you rented a car like me, there is parking at the villa with room. The access is actually very simple, the small road can surprise but there is nothing complicated :-) You are close to the largest axis that will allow you to easily visit the surroundings. Ho, there is a breakfast for a few euros and it is very convenient! Not to mention that you can eat at night at the villa. Honestly, it's delicious and even better than some restaurants :-) The whole villa has sun loungers, hammocks, small charming spaces to sit, contemplate the view or read. It's very peaceful, I'm more like resting in a house than going out dancing around the pool. Here you will find calm, a respectful atmosphere and great hosts, who are really listening. The internet connection is good. Again thank you George (and everyone), you made us have a great holiday. I understand why everyone speaks positively of the villa, you are at the top and we wish you the best, it will be a pleasure to come again if we are in Crete! :-) E --- NGLISH --- Airbnb, can you give George 6 stars? I have never been here. I spend an incredible amount of time on booking and Airbnb to find good accommodation. And then we found a real treasure! The view is amazing, the villa is beautiful, clean, well maintained. The pool is really big and clean! The interior of the apartments is absolutely charming, the decoration is beautiful and typical. The beach is a 5-minute walk away, really. The return will be a little more difficult but it takes just 8 minutes, it's great! :-) And this beach is very beautiful. You are 20 minutes walk or 5 minutes from the center where you can eat in good restaurants recommended by George. It's very easy to go by by. If you have a car like me, there is a parking lot at the villa with space. The access road is actually very simple, the small road can surprise you there is nothing complicated: -) You are close to the road that will allow you to easily visit the surroundings. Oh, there's a breakfast for a few euros and it's very convenient! By the way, you can eat in the evening at the villa. Honestly, it's delicious and even better than some restaurants :-) The whole villa has sun loungers, hammocks and small charming spaces to rest, contemplate the view or read. It's very peaceful, a respectful atmosphere and great hosts, who are really listening. Thanks again George (and everyone else), you made us a great vacation. I understand why everyone is talking about the villa and your team, it's a pleasure to come back to Crete!

    Frank2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderfully beautiful and relaxing place to stay with great hosts. I definitely recommend!

    Chris2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • George and Fofi are wonderful hosts, super hospitable and very helpful. The apartment is super, nice rooms and a great view! The swimming pool is beautiful and you can really relax there! The beach is very close and wonderfully quiet! George gives very good tips about the top sights on the island!

    Sophie2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • It's an oasis... A bit tricky to find first time around but you soon get use to that, and it's remoteness is part of its charm. There is is a private walk way down to the local beach. The hosts were so helpful and friendly, the pool and hammock are great facilities but it's the view/location which really is spectacular. Amazing value for money... I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

  • As first time guests to Crete, we could not have chosen a more wonderful host. The recommendations were spot on every single time. She provided delicious breakfast options including making breakfast requests. She coordinated travel options for us as well. The rooms were clean and authentic in the cretien style. Beds are comfortable and showers were warm! WHEN we return, we shall definitely stay with Gabriella again. Thank you so very much for being the highlight of our stay, Gabby!

    Julie2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely recommend. Very special place with lots of beautiful details. We feel very grateful, that we found your place Gabriella and thank you for all the great tipps and your hospitality.

    Ann-Kathrin2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella is a very friendly host. Her property is very cozy, it has a nice garden and is located near Heraklion, so it‘s a good starting point for daily adventures. Also she offers a delicious breakfast. Our room had a nice balkony and even if it was very simple and basic, we enjoyed our stay. Thanks again :) Rasmus&Phoolan

    Phoolan2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent warm host! The place is charming as well as the cute kittens!

    Guyôm2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Arrive with a warm welcome to Crete. In a garden with kettle in the room for tea or coffee in a stylish room, simply with a terrace and views to the mountains and also to the sea. I felt very well. Thank you. Sometimes Gabriella cooks, then the get-together becomes a Greek feast and remains in wonderful memory for those who did not know each other before.

    Annette2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for a nice holiday. Location is a bit remote but with a car you can easily reach everything in Crete. Gabriella is super hospitable and happy to help! To recommend!

    Hannes2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella has created a little paradise in and with her garden. It really is a beautiful spot where you meet like-minded people in summer. Despite its size, the place has a splendid tavern and Gabriella is on hand to help and advise. Just great! The only trouble is the expressway bridge which runs over the village and thus obstructs divine tranquility and the actually magnificent view of the sea.
