The location of the village is between two larger villages, Vamos and Kefalas, and approximately 35 kilometers away from Chania, in the northeast side. The name Xirosterni means dry water tanks. This picturesque village is approximately inhabited by 40 people who have built their homes traditionally, at an altitude of 240 meters above sea level. There are no hotels or other facilities of mass tourism. Visitors will only find rooms for rent or luxurious villas built traditionally and integrated in the beautiful natural environment. From Xirosterni village, there are excellent small roads close by putting a whole myriad of villages, seaside resorts and attractions within easy reach. If walking or cycling is your pastime you'll be in your element here. There are small roads and footpaths through olive groves and small cypress forests.

Both towns with outstanding beauty are homes to a wide selection of historic places, but also to shops and restaurants. Xirosterni itself has a small grocery shop and a traditional kafenion located about 600 m from Viola's Apartments. The Kafenion serves drinks and small dishes with a real Cretan accent.

  • I liked the rooftop patio very much. The location is very quiet, wifi worked well. I was able to use a scooter to get around the area, including to nearby beaches and the shops and restaurants in Vamos, a few kilometers away. Had a very good experience at Hand Picked Greece a farm and cooking school about 5 minutes away by scooter.

    William2018-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • It was a perfect stay.

    Jan2018-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Housing according to the description. We have always responded to our requests on site and with great kindness. We had a pleasant stay. To see the World Cup match and celebrate the victory of France, it took us 10 minutes to drive to a bar by the sea :-) A small point of attention for families, the beds on the ground floor are sofas (they are not sofa beds) and are a bit hard - you have to know. Enjoying the hinterland was a real pleasure. Think of GPS (or an offline map) for your travels.

    Nicolas2018-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Real hospitality and personal care from the owners. Mr. Giannis is there for what you need

  • Nice little house for who wants to have Greek hollidays away from mass tourism and noise. We enjoyed nature, the sun and everything this Island has to offer. The small village of Xirosternos is quiet and typical. There is a small supermarket where you can find bread and basic things you need for your stay. There are mountains and beaches at a few minutes driving from the house, so if you want to visit the isle you'll need to hire a car. The housekeeper is very friendly and helpfull and speaks a few words of English. The pool is clean and even though we had to share it with people staying in the other houses (there are 6 in total) we had it for ourselves for most of the time. The kids loved it. We had a verry good time here and would recommend it to people who love this kind of hollidays.

    Pol2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • The price is very good, the house is spacious and has everything you need to spend a good stay. The man who takes care of the villas was very friendly and helpful and helped us at all times. There were mosquitoes and ants but nothing exaggerated as you are in the countryside.Very close to mini shops to buy what you need.

The high ceilings, fly screens on every window and really good air conditioning units made our stay very comfortable. just a short stroll from the mini market where a wide range of products are available and a tavern, this house is in a perfect location if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. The host Artemis was wonderful. We enjoyed his recommendations and nothing was a problem. We even received a bag of fruit, left outside for us from the locals. So very touching. Can not recommend this house enough. We will be back!

    Mihaly2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed very much our stay at Artemis’ house. The photos represent the house perfectly well. The house is spacious and peacefully situated in the mountains – the only noise comes from the phenomenal chirping crickets. The house was very clean, sufficiently stuffed, the mini market nearby very useful. The communication with Artemis was excellent, he constantly replied and also sent his brother to guide us safely to the house. Only one little suggestion for improvement: on the rear terrace, some furniture and a sun umbrella would have been the cherry on top. Thanks, Artemis!

    Sonja2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Artemis' place was cozy and as described. Furthermore, Artemis is a great host, accompanied us personally to the house and gave useful tips for the area. There is also a supermarket and a great taverna just couple of metres away! Thank you for having us :)

    Lucia2019-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Artemis started our little vacation in Crete wonderfully with great hospitality: he drove from his home to the airport at 11:30pm to guide us so we could arrive safely and quickly. The place was massive and very traditional with a modern /simple touch, you can enjoy the lovely sunshine at either front porch or back garden, just be careful of the mosquitos... In addition, Artemis gave us travelling tips without enquiry which was very nice. We were absolutely satisfied with Artemis's hosting and his place is our first choice when we come back for another time.

    William2018-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely house with everything you need to feel like at home. The neighborhood is quiet and you can find a mini market a very good taverna within walking distance. The house is spacious, and the outdoor area is lovely. A beautiful beach is few km away. You will need a car to move around and explore. I highly recommend Artemis place.

    Andreea2018-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent home owner. Very nice house, well equipped. Change of scenery guaranteed, with the song of cicadas (or crickets?). Friendly neighbor.

    Sahondra2018-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, a mini market round the corner, a very nice taverna...

    Gemma2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nice place, off the beaten path and away from the hustle and bustle of the beach towns. Yet, it was only a few minutes down the hillside to a nice little beach to swim and watch the sunset.

    The apartment has perfect sea and mountains views entering from the balcony . Short path leads to the an intimate beach , probably you will be there alone, since only few people know it . It is a place of beauty and privacy. It is on the edge of a small pictures village called Plaka, that has an international community which lives here all year. So there are nice restaurants and bars with unique atmosphere. The apartment is fully equipped and it is perfect for short and long stays.
    לדירה יש נוף מרהיב, מצד אחד הים ומצד שני ההרים, המושלגים בחורף. אפשר לשבת במרפסת על הספה ולצפות בנוף במשך שעות. יש שביל קצר שמוביל לחוף קטנטן ואינטימי, שברוב המקרים תהיו בו לבד לגמרי, כי מעט אנשים מכירים אותו. הדירה נמצאת בליבו של יופי מרהיב, עם המון פרטיות. יחד עם זה היא ממוקמת בשולי הכפר פלאקה, כפר יווני קטן וציורי, שבו מתגוררת קהילה בינלאומית, במשך כל השנה, כך שבמרכז הכפר יש מגוון של מסעדות וברים טובים עם אוירה ייחודית. הדירה מצויידת באופן מלא, כמו בית, והיא מושלמת גם לשהייה קצרה וגם לשהייה ארוכה.

  • A fabulous place in a wonderful location. I really enjoyed Plaka, the view, and the overall experience!

    Morgan2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 4 nights in Boaz's apartment. Nothing to say, the welcome was excellent, Boaz made us discover Cretan culinary specialties. The location of the apartment is perfect, with a small rental car we could visit all the northwest coast of the ridge and the village of Plaka is very charming as well as its surroundings! We are really happy with our stay and leave feeling full of nostalgia, the view from the terrace is amazing with sunsets of postcard. A swimming pool is in the residence very well maintained, we could also enjoy the small private beach at 3 minutes walk from the apartment. In short, everything was great for a quiet stay for a relaxing holiday. We highly recommend this apartment

    Welcome to our cosy house that is a refurnished traditional home operating as a rentable holiday spot, suitable for relaxing holidays. It was designed as a family home and is therefore well equipped, offering luxury accommodation. The location is ideal for those who are looking for peaceful holidays, near the beach and all amenities.
    Entering the house, you will face the large and comfortable living room and the fully equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, oven, microwave and a comfortable dining table in order to enjoy your meals. Getting upstairs, there is a large and comfortable bedroom with 1 double bed and 1 more single bed. Next to the bedroom there is the bathroom with WC and shower. There is also a balcony with stunning views and magnificent sunsets. Coming out from the house, you will enjoy the cosy veranda with the outdoor dining table that is ideal for moments of relaxation and pleasure. An ideal choice for both couples and families looking for the typical countryside life while staying in a high quality holiday house!
    The nearest beach of Obrosgialos is just 3km away from the villa and it its blue waters will fascinate you. There, you will also find a small quite tavern overlooking the sea, where you can enjoy fresh fish. Other nearby beaches are Almyrida just 5km away, Kalyves 6km away and Georgioupoli, 6 km away. The area provides a wide range of dining and recreational alternatives, for all tastes and budgets. Palailoni is a small mountain village in the Apokoronas area just above Kefalas village. Actually, it looks more like an extension of the village of Kefalas. Palailoni consists of only a few houses and it is very quiet and green. Almyrida village, just 5km away, is today a small seaside tourist resort. The two small sandy beaches are very popular in the summer, especially for families and young crowds that enjoy combining their suntan with fresh local fish by the bay.
  • Nikos is very friendly and helpful, with little touches, and the house was very clean and nice, thanks to its two outdoor areas!

    Julie2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • This house is located in a rural area with pleasant neighbors, cozy little villages nearby and good hiking opportunities in the surrounding area. Everything you need for equipment can be found in the house. Great to sit on the large terrace by the bedroom on the 2nd floor to have breakfast in the morning sun overlooking the olive trees and mountains. In the afternoon / evening, the patio at the entrance was extensively used. From here, there was an absolutely magical view to Lefka Ori - the White Mountains and the sunset. The sheep cost themselves with cactus on the roadside and the small dogs (not wild dogs) and the cats lived in peaceful harmony. In the evening, you can take a stroll to the nearest village, Kefalas, and eat delicious Souvlaki if you like. About 15 min to walk. The closest seaside resort, Ombros Gialos, has the clearest water imaginable, but is most suitable when there is no wind. In that case, Almyrida, 12 minutes drive away, is absolutely perfect. There is a beach lying in shelter for the north wind, which has been a problem on the north coast many times. Paleiloni offers you many opportunities for experiences in the Apokoronas area and in the western part of Crete. And it feels fantastic to come back to this cozy house and enjoy the silence after a day on the go! Highly recommended :)

    Øygunn Karin2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nikos was really kind with thoughtful gifts when we arrived and left. He answered quickly and made sure we were okay. The place is well equiped and incredibly quiet and peaceful, don't hesitate !

    Pauline2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is great!! That was the best arb’n’b greeting we’ve had! Nicos’s father brought a watermelon and raki to greet us! the hosts are very hospitable and helpful! Nikos was always easy to reach by whatsapp. Thank you very much! The apartment is extremely neat, tidy and comfortable, with a great view and lovely neighbors. The sea is a bit far from the apartment, but if you have a car that is not a problem.

    Ksusha2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located in a beautiful place nearby some enchanting villages where you can find everything you need. The rooms are very clean and the kitchen is provided of delicious food for breakfast and, first of all, Nikos is a superb host, always ready to help you in case of problems and full of advices for tourists which don’t know Crete at all. I highly recommend the house!!

    Andrea2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nikos accommodation is impeccable. Old house of the 1930s retapée, we find the Greek charm. Ideally located quiet if you want to be quiet but not far from market, and taverns to fall. The view is amazing. Nikos is a great host, who greeted us with raki and excellent watermelon. He is very good advice for your stay in Crete. We highly recommend!

    Jean-Baptiste2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at Nikos's place, the house is really charming and extra clean. Nikos is a great host, welcoming and reactive ; he gave us useful information about places to visit around Paleiloni. We will go back one day, that's for sure !

    Krystell2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • These were not forgotten 17 days of rest in the house of Nikos! By our arrival, a table was set with homemade sweets and raki. Then there was an acquaintance with the house! Clean rooms, a large terrace on the second floor, in the kitchen everything is provided for cooking, with a wonderful view of the mountains. Our 3-year-old son, who had a birthday, was happy with the gifts and cake that was given by Nikos and his family, and every morning he went to look at the sheep that were grazing not far away! And for him it was a real joy! And how he loved cucumbers, kindly donated by Nicos's father, a very friendly and wonderful person. The house is beautiful for a relaxing holiday, wonderful neighbors, and the location of the house made it possible to quickly get to Chania, and to Rethymnon, and to Elafonisi, famous for its pink sand on the beach. But more time on the advice of Nikos, we spent on the beach in Georgioupoli! Clean sea, delicious food, fountains, carriages with horses, delicious fish and evening traditional live Cretan music! Nikos is a wonderful and reliable owner, who has become a friend to us, is open to communication, quickly resolves all issues related to living! We recommend 100% and look forward to new meetings!

  • The villa is fully consistent with the description. There is everything necessary for comfortable housing and relaxation. Upon arrival, everything was clean and in working condition. With great pleasure we lived in this villa for 2 months (October 15 - December 15, 2019). Small breakdowns were fixed instantly. Periodic culinary surprises from the hostess of the villa delighted our bellies. After each cleaning, we were poured with crayfish, wine and olive oil. Divine Greek hospitality :) If you are looking for a secluded place for spiritual and quiet relaxation, then this is exactly what you need! Once again, many thanks to Nafsika and Dimitris for their hospitality!

    Nikita2019-12-16T00:00:00Z

  • From the very first moment we had a beautiful stay at our new home on crete. The lovely owners welcomed us with delicious food out from their own garden and cared well about us from about fresh towels due to eggs, tomatos or a welcoming raki. The beautiful house is big enough to create a cooking evening and pleasure wine evenings at a personal terrace place next to the sleeping room from where you can see the sea and also a sky full of stars in the evening! You should definetly go to the close layered taverne especially when they have live music and dance atmosphere on friday evenings! We will come back for sure, because there are still same places we want to visit on our list! Thank you very much for your good hosting:).

  • Nafsika is really thoughtful, despite our late arrival, she warmly welcomed us. She even prepared for us some fresh eggs, raki and local biscuits. We spent an amazing time in her appartement, the village is lovely and so are the hosts ! I fully recommend anybody to spend some time in Nasika's appartement, you won't regret it at all !

    Amandine2018-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment conforms to the description, well located to visit the west of Crete, in the heights but accessible by a nice road. We were welcomed with open arms by Nafsika, who was full of little touches for us and especially for our baby (eggs and vegetables from the garden, toys ...). The apartment is clean and comfortable, very well equipped, nothing is missing! There is a mini super market and a very good tavern 2 minutes walk (remember to book on Friday night, the day they offer concerts). The village is alive and not too damaged by tourism.

  • Many thanks to Emmanouil and his mother. It’ve been one of the best vacation we had for a long time. We were overwhelmed with hospitality. This is the place we’d recommend for every one.

  • We were very happy with our stay at Joan's place. We had a perfect weekend. The house, the nature around and the view are amazing! Joan is a perfect host, she cared a lot and did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I would come back any time!

    Julius2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures don’t do the view justice. This is an amazing place up in the hills, surrounded by mountains, views of the sea and the beautiful bell sounds of sheep wandering around. Joan and John are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make sure your time spent is relaxing. From the wonderful breakfast of bread and homemade jam, to lovely chats with Joan, you are sure to enjoy your time. Close enough to some restaurants and in great proximity for exploring central and western Crete. Chania is 30minutes a way. All in all, I will say that if you want a bit of a “closer to nature” stay coupled with their lovely hospitality, then Alpha House is the place.

    Jenn2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts are very friendly and help in everything, the house is great, with light, very clean large kitchen, gardens, the room is ideal size and has a private bathroom, all very good. I would surely stay there again.

    Regina2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Superb stay at Joan, a very warm and endearing hostess. The house of John and Joan is well placed between Chania and Rethymnon and it is quiet and the rooms are clean and well appointed. Thank you to both of them for their superb hospitality.

    Sandrine2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Joan is one of the warmest and most caring hosts I have met! Our stay was truly idyllic as she is very caring. If you seek tranquility and a place where you feel at home, Joan's home is the place to go. Thanks again !!

    Gwendoline2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Joan is such a lovely, kind and warm presence and as soon as you meet her, makes you feel like you are at home! She is 68 years old and still have beautiful dreams and willingness about life. I stayed in one of her rooms which was very comfortable and nice decorated with a spacious ensuite bathroom with a bathtub. The balconies were the highlight of this lovely house in the natural environment with amazing view to the White mountains. Highlight was also her delicious breakfast with her homemade bread and jam which she makes with so much love. I felt the area that the house is located very familiar, with nice taverns and local café-bars only 5 minutes drive to Plaka. I was so lucky to find her and share together life stories. I would return back for sure and soon I hope :))

    Angela2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place has million dollar views of magnificent nature, especially the mountains one can almost touch, Nature at its best, host is wonderful, helpful and delivers loads of of useful information, all in all - unavoidable.

    The house is renovated cretan cottage of 18th century! All the places are carefuly decorated with respect to the architecture of the house. Wood and stone prodominate in the atmosphere of the interrior and the exterior as well! Our lovely garden adds the sense of nature. It s a house ideal for architecture lovers, readers, , artists and people who love nature! You can enjoy moments of real relaxation in the heart of a typical cretan village, away from the difficulties of the urban environment!
    The house belongs traditionaly to our family and we have carefully renovated, since we are a family of archaeologists. We have used natural materials, originally used for house constructions.
    The house is located in the center of a quiet, picturesque village. Although the villages around offer all oppotrunities of enjoying yourselves with different possible ways!
  • This house is amazing! Although it does not have a pool and some modern touches, it is very comfortable and charming (150 years old!). The inner courtyard was so pleasant that we barely spent any time in the large living areas. The small village and surrounding villages were fun to explore on foot and the general location (easy driving distance to Hania and the north coast beaches and the good road to go south) made this our favourite house in our three week stay.

    Roger2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's house is special. Pleasant, with style, with history. A few minutes from magnificent beaches and perfect for excursions to the south of the island. The impeccable treatment and communication. Hopefully we can return one day.

    Alberto2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Maris’s house! It is a traditional stone house and you can see (and feel) that a family of archaeologists does conserve everything with a lot of love to the place. It is well decorated, very quiet and has a great view to the white mountains. The courtyard with its garden and plants is beautiful and you can spent a relaxing time there. Communication with Maria and her sister Georgia was very friendly, easy going and quick. We will definitely come back and recommend that place!

    Dörte2019-05-18T00:00:00Z

    Ian2019-05-01T00:00:00Z

    Emmanuel2019-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Maria's place. The house is beautiful and well decorated, we enjoy every single details here. This was perfect for us, spending some days enjoying the calm and the sun in the nice yard and some other driving to Chania or Rethymno (about 30min drive each). Communication with Maria and her sister was easy, they are answering really quickly. We can only recommend this place!

    Jérôme2019-03-30T00:00:00Z

    Our accommodation has an autonomous entrance from the private terrace, which is elevated. The comfortable living room has a fireplace and a TV. Another guest can be accommodated on the sofa bed, which has an anatomic mattress. The kitchen is fully equipped for meals and there is a large dining table.

Upon request, we can provide you with a baby crib. Our beautiful terrace has shade and almost always a cool breeze. There is outdoor furniture where you can relax and have lunch. An extra balcony overlooking the sea is located on the other side of the house. There you will find an extra table and chairs. The private bathroom is equipped with a washing machine. On the lower floor of the building there is also a country house with its own independent yard, which we rarely use. No space is shared. Our guests can park for free next to the property in a private location.
    The village of Kefalas is in a beautiful, amphitheatric location. It is built on a green slope and overlooks the sea. These elements offer an excellent microclimate and a coolness even in the summer. A strong element of the village is the preservation of the particular architecture. Both public buildings and churches, as well as residences, have preserved the style of the area. Careful courtyards and picturesque shops make the visitor want to go around every village alley. During the summer months, music evenings, events and festivals are organized. Both in the village of Kefalas, Vamos (4 km) and in Plaka, there are several shops, supermarkets, a pharmacy, a health center etc. During the summer months, music evenings and festivals are organized.

  • This is a lovely place to stay. Large, with two verandas and a great view of the mountains. Sotiris and his wife were very welcoming with homemade jams, liqueurs and baked goods. Kefalas is a very pretty village with very friendly people. My partner and I stayed for four days and thoroughly enjoyed it. I would happily go back again.

    Mel2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at villa Sotiris. The villa is just like in the pictures, and it was shining clean. Katerina was such a great and responsive hostess, starting all the way from the reservation until we left the villa. She welcomed us generously with nice bakings, wine, olive oil and vegetables from their own farm. The villa was located at the edge of village Kefalos, and the place was peaceful and quiet. You could only hear the normal village voices and sheep bells from the field in front of the villa. The view from the kitchen and living room balcony was great on the day time, but especially during the sunset. The colours were amazing, and it was nice to sit and look at the lights of Apokoronas villages and Akrotiri and the starts on the sky. We can very warmly recommend villa Sotiris!

  • Thank you Georgios and Natalia for the extraordinary hospitality. They were happy to help and advise us when we needed it. However, they were also very discreet. The apartment was very comfortable and quiet, equipped with everything you need, also in the kitchen. It's important to us because we like cooking. Outside view of the sea and mountains and a beautiful sunset. Quiet and charming place. Andrzej and Kalina

  • The apartment was very nice, clean and just as pictured with excellent kitchen facilities. Georgios and his wife were very friendly and accommodating. The apartment is in a quiet residential area a short distance from the centre of Plaka where there are two supermarkets, several tavernas and even a craft beer bar. The beach at Almyrida is 3/4 mile away (only a 15 minute walk although slightly longer coming back as uphill)! It is ideal for families as the sea is very shallow for quite a distance out from the beach. We enjoyed our stay at Georgios’s apartment and would definitely stay there again.

The apartment is small, especially the bathroom, but everything you need is there eine including a bottle of raki and olive oil. Check-in and check-out were totally uncomplicated and the contact with Vasiliki and Manolis always very nice! Everything was very clean. The absolute best thing about the apartment is the view

    Malte2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome view, where colors change throughout the day, and it will excite you in a new way, as a food for the soul, a rest for the brain. Careful hosts will delight you with the hill of little things you will find in the apartment, such as fruit, sweets, raki, wine ... A very clean, quiet and peaceful apartment, you will have complete privacy. The center of the village nearby, like the lake, the river that flows into the sea, lots of tavernas offering good food ... make you fall in love! We will miss the whole experience of this place!

  • A really comfortable studio with everything you need. Gianna and Niko were great hosts and as well as raki there was even juice in the fridge. The place was very clean and the kitchen had everything you might need. The location is very strategic for exploring the areas of Chania and Rethymno (a car is necessary). We booked for 2 days and ended up staying 2 more!

    George2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Nikos place with my boyfriend and we had a terrific experience. The place is in a nice location, is super clean and we found everything we needed in the flat for a comfortable staying. Iwanna is a great host, ready to help and she keeps the flat constantly clean. We really appreciate that. Kalives is a great location and close to the sea and you can find everything you need there: from local shops to restaurants to mini markets, cafe and a nice beach. We travelled a lot by car but it was nice to have a comfortable place where to come back in the evening and have a quite dinner by the sea. Super recommended !

    Antonio Placido2017-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a perfect stay at Ιωαννα's place. It was absolutely gorgeous, more so than the pics could portray. She was very welcoming, even providing us with ingredients we were missing to cook and gave us dessert! Very friendly and highly recommended. The place is about 20 min drive from Chania, 30 in traffic, but this was perfect for us as we had a few places we wanted to see in the region. A bus drives by Ιωαννα's place that goes to Samaria gorge for those interested, see the kiosk in Almyrida. The place is hard to find, it is smack in between Kalyves and Almyrida, so don't rely solely on google maps to get you here. She was also helpful guiding us, waiting for us in driveway, but follow the road closest to coast in between these two cities. Thank you Ιωαννα for our best stay in Greece thus far!

    Villa Sage Relax listening to the sounds of the crickets, a very soothing feeling while you are a step away from the pool for some cooling down!!!
    Peaceful environment away from stress and everyday routine!!Amazing views! Friendly neighbors, spectacular vegetation and Cretan tradition alive and kicking!!!
  • We loved Eirini's place. Vamos was a great little village too! The pool, the terrasse, and the town is within walking distance. We will definitely come back next year!

  • Our stay here was amazing. Everything was realy clean, the appartement was full of nice details and sitting on the quiet terrace gave us the perfect holiday feeling. When we contacted he answered immediately and was very helpfull. Opposite to the pool lives the owner of the appartments and he is such a nice and helpfull man. When laying by the pool he brought us cake and fruit. So sweet! Vamos is a beautiful and quiet village with a number of cafes and restaurants and very friendly locals. Looking back this was the best accomodation we have had during our stay in Krete.

    Charlotte2018-05-22T00:00:00Z

  • Elianthos Villas made our stay in Crete a memorable experience. Vamos ist located conveniently close to Chania and Rethimno, only about 15 min from the sea. However, being located not directly at the sea, it is a cozy place without too many tourists and great for a family like us.

  • Nikos's place has everything you need: it's sparkling clean, well designed and comfortable, fully equipped and located beautifully above the village square (and yet we didn't hear any noise) We booked the place in a less than a hour before we checked in (needed a place to lay down immediately after long hours of journey), and Nikos proved himself as the man for the job. A nice girl was waiting for us downstairs, and showed us in to the apartment, which was fully ready for us. We recommend it greatly

The ac and WiFi worked perfectly and the fridge was filled with everything needed for a small breakfast in the morning. There is plenty enough kitchen equipment only the stove is on the small side. The view from the balcony was absolutely breathtaking and it made for the perfect morning breakfast spot or even late night chilling outside. The shower worked perfectly and there were four towels provided for two people. Not a bad word to say! We will be back :)

The apartment was spotless and clean with linen and towels provided. There was even a cleaning service provided. The kitchen was appropriately equipped Fan and air conditioning provided. The views from the apartment are the best and absolutely amazing and the location is perfect as it is between Chania or Rethymno. A car is essential though as the apartment is a short 5 minute drive from the nearest town of Georgioupoli for super markets and more restaurants. There are also 3 taverna a few steps away from the apartment. Would definitely stay here again and for longer.

  • Marianna's 'avli' is a paradise, just wonderful !!! We had a wonderful holiday - Crete is a beautiful island, the Cretan extremely friendly. Marianna, her mother Rula and Jani have received us so lovingly that we felt well from the beginning. The country house that they rent is furnished with great attention to detail and very clean. If you look out of the window, then you look at a large avocado and orange tree in the courtyard; the surrounding village is tranquil, olive groves all around and again: many friendly people :-) Rula and Jani spoiled us with fruit, wine, cake and other delicacies - they are real 'superhosts'.

It provides a great location to explore more areas of the island. Marianna has provided everything we needed in the house, even some food and drink. She was very welcoming and walked us through the tips and recommondations she had for exloring the island, as well as the house. Recommended: small car, as the parking space is not big.

    Francis2019-06-16T00:00:00Z

  • Wonderful, cosy pool villa surrounded by the most stunning scenery in a very quaint village. Not far from Chania, the villa is well situated to lots of fun day trips. The place was sparkling clean and ideal for a family.

  • We spent a week in Christina's house in Kefalas, a pretty little village perched on the hill. Everything was perfect: the place is beautiful (a sublime sea view from the house), the equipment very well. Very nice pool which we enjoyed a lot. The other apartments are unoccupied (in works), except one, which allowed us to have space outside. Christina was not there but she was always reachable and we were greeted by a lady upon our arrival. The house is immaculate. I highly recommend this rental.

  • Peerless sea view !!! The apartment is large, with high ceilings, two-room: a bedroom and a kitchen with a sofa and a bed. Both rooms have doors to a large balcony. Amazing view! Linen change and cleaning - every three days. There is toilet paper, soap, shampoo. Very convenient location, in our opinion ideal in Kalyves. The exit from the apartment is on the street, right at the bus stop in Chania. Nearby a bakery, minimarket, gyros, coffee shop, car rental and other shops. There is one large supermarket in Kalyves, on the outskirts of the village, 10-15 minutes walk to it. If you are by car - parking from the sea. Under the apartment is the most beautiful large tavern. She did not bother us, on the contrary, we enjoyed live music at least twice a week. Only the smells that came, perhaps salivating :) By 24h, the taverns were empty. The beach under the tavern with flat stones, in addition, there may be strip-cold water due to the proximity of the river. But right behind it is a large sandy beach, there are trees where you can hide in the shade. To the other side, where there is IN.KA supermarket (SYNKA signboard) - another huge beach. All beaches are equipped with shower, toilet, sunbeds, as a rule, for a drink are free. Sunset at sea is smooth. If you are by car, this is a very convenient starting point to go around the surrounding beaches in the Chania area (look at Devil's Bay, Zomba, 10-km Georgioupolis Beach, Lake Kurna and much, much more). The perfect combination of price and quality. We were very pleased, thanks a lot to the hosts for the hospitality! We would return with joy, but so far there are many other places that we would like to visit)

    Tanya2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnb stays. The location is wonderful. About 15min from chania center by car. Nearby beaches are excellent. The communication was great and quick. The room is cleaned at least twice a week. The room is big and well equipped with you'll need, nothing super fancy but there's no need for that. It's excellent. The apartment is above a taverna owned by the family. Great people to communicate with. The dad is super cute and nice even if he doesn't speak English he always made sure to great us warmly. We even got a small honey jar as a gift! We highly recommend this place and we will certainly be back again!

    Mohamad Bilal2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with great sea view. good value for the money. The location is great - near the center of Kalives with nice Tavernas.

  • Perfect place for hollidays

    Louise2019-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the accommodation is great! Balcony with great views right on the beach of Kalyves, the pictures do not fool! From the balcony to the beautiful beach with its own loungers and umbrellas, there is only a short minute walk. If you are looking forward to a good portion of Greece away from the tourist hotspots, this is the place for you. The apartment is directly above the tavern the landlord (delicious food), but from the tavern itself you hardly get anything. In the apartment and from the balcony you can follow the music evenings but wonderful. The apartment itself was so far clean, with fresh linen and towels, and a kitchenette with two hobs, sink and fridge. The landlords are very nice, a bit Greek planned but for the friendlier. Anyone who, as I said, likes to be off the beaten track and has a rental car / car with him, can feel very comfortable here!

    Thilo2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Kalives is a lovely place to stay. Village, sea and accommodation all within a few metres. This apartment is in the middle of the village and has a fantastic sea view which can be enjoyed from the balcony. Beach and sun beds immediately in front and an excellent taverna below. This friendly family will ensure that you have an unforgettable holiday.

    Villa Gloria is located in Souri Village and offers you truly rural idyll close to fantastic Greek villages, towns and beaches. In West Crete you find beautiful Souri Village in a scenic landscape – only a few kilometers from several great beaches. In Souri Village, you can enjoy green surroundings in a quiet rural environment – but the surrounding area is also well worth exploring. than 2 kilometres from Souri Village is the little village of Litsarda – with shop, cafe and pizzeria/ taverna. A little further down the road, and you will find the town of Vamos with excellent amenities (tavernas, cafes, bars, supermarkets, bakery, bank / cash machine etc.). Vamos also offers cultural events such as sports and music events all year round – in calm surroundings with friendly people. If you want a beach resort, you will like nearby Georgioupolis, a small fisherman’s village which features a large village square with tavernas and cafes and assorted shops. Georgioupolis is especially known for its rich bird and animal life as well as the sandy beach and great sea bathing along with a large public swimming pool. In Georgioupolis you are always within walking distance of the beach, the square, the tavernas and supermarkets. In short, Georgioupolis is a Greek gem, with a wonderful atmosphere, where everything is close by and where both adults and children feel relaxed in pleasant surroundings. The river running through the town from Lake Kournas to the sea is also a great place to see lots of wild life including turtles. If the thought of a big charming city with culture and history appeals, Chania is for you. The old quarter of the city around the Venetian harbour has a wonderful atmosphere with its many old buildings and narrow streets. Enjoying lunch sitting outside one of the many tavernas on the harbour is an experience you won’t forget.
  • We had a wonderful stay in a quiet and relaxing setting, very well placed to visit the western part of the island

    Elena2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is in a very quiet area nearly on the top of the hill. It is good for families. The apartment provides enough space for a family of four. The pool is fantastic. Frank helps you if you have a Problem and tries to fix anything if something doesn‘t work.

    Alexander2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Excellently equipped, clean and spacious, this is a great retreat from the hectic of the usual holiday resorts on Crete. Great pool, peaceful location surrounded by the local hills and villages, and yet not far from great beaches and interesting towns. Need a car really to get the most out of this, but then the location is great for everything between Rethymnon, Chania and the south coast. Frank and Fiona go out of their way to help in all matters. Highly recommended!

    Diane2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great for a quiet family vacation. We loved the details we found the first day (bread, wine, milk, coffee, butter, ...). Just enough not to have to go shopping for anything upon arrival. The very spacious house. We were very comfortable. A bit isolated in the mountains but a few minutes drive from nearby towns with atmosphere, shops and restaurants. Frank very attentive in everything and responded quickly. Totally recommended.

    Ana2019-08-25T00:00:00Z

  • We had wonderful holidays in Souri Village in June, 2019. Clean, light and airy house; large swimming pool with great view. Frank and Fiona are friendly and helpful hosts. We’re going to revisit Crete and we’ll definitely have a stop in Souri Village. Thank you so much, Frank and Fiona! The Kovalenko family.

  • This rental is located in a very nice, quiet village, close to many sites and nice beaches, and in easy striking distance of Chania and other key areas on Crete. The property is finished to a very high level by its discerning owner, and gives the feel of a quiet treehouse respite - you can enjoy privacy, while having your own garden, and being part of the village at the same time. The property owner demonstrated the best hospitality I've seen at any AirBnB, Home Away, or VRBO property I've rented. Dimitris was outstanding and went out of his way to make the rental homey with a lot of nice little touches. The items presented at the beginning of the stay were wonderful, and the property itself is very cozy. Highly recommend this as a very nice stay in Crete!

    Dana2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very great time at this lovely place and also a perfect host with Dimitris. With long work and dedication he created a unique place. From the the moment we arrived he was very helpful with a lot of tips for the island that made our stay even better. We can recommend this place for anyone looking for an authentic experience on Crete in a beautiful and quiet village with a few nice taverns. Thank you Dimitris!

    Katharina2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • This house is truly an insider for everybody who comes to (west) Crete! Its super clean and there's even more than you'd expect because the hospitality of the owner is overwhelming. The area is very quiet and there's even an olive grove and some hammocks next to the house. The owner Dimitris has some very good insider tips for the area and Crete in general. We would definitely come again and highly recommend this accommodation to everybody who seeks an individual vacation experience.

    Simon2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you again for the amazing hospitality we received at the Lemon Tree Retreat, it was beyond amazing. Dimitris was the very best host, sharing his home made wine and Raki, there was honey and local beer waiting for us, along with oranges and lemons from the garden. Hammocks were set up in the olive grove next to the house, with its super private and tranquil walled garden, smelling of heady Jasmin in the evening. There are two separate sun terraces if you don’t want to venture into the lovely little village or down to one of the many fantastic beaches. Really incredible value for money. We can’t recommend this spotlessly clean house enough. Thank you Dimitris and we hope to see you again soon. Andy and Simina

    Andy2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t even know where to begin. My friend and I stayed 10 days at the house and we enjoyed every single one of them to the fullest! The owner of the place is Dimitris, which will also be your host during your stay. He was the nicest and loveliest host we’ve ever had! He gave us great local tips, took us on a 6 hour hike to the white mountains and did everything to make us feel at home! Every time he came around he would bring some delicious local snacks or fresh fruits. His house is incredibly beautiful and even prettier than in the photos - trust me! The village is small and traditional but with really nice taverns. It’s a must to have a car so you can go to the beach and explore the island, but we thought it was a great location. Beautiful landscapes and very peaceful. If you’re looking for a vacation far from busy tourism but in the heart of a typical Greek village, this is your choice! Seriously, we loved it and I am already so jealous of everyone who’s still to spend some time there. But we’ll be back! Thank you Dimitris for this incredible experience!

    Emily2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The lemon tree retreat is the very best Airbnb we have ever stayed in. Although nicos is the 'host' dimitris the owner is the host. What he and the artisans who have worked with him over the last years, to make the house into a truly remarkable place, is something to behold. Every detail is authentic, just wonderful. We will return and recommend the lemon tree retreat to all our decerning friends (of whom there are a lot!) Thank you Dimitris

    Kevin2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a perfect stay. Dimitris is a very dedicated host. He made every effort to make our stay as pleasant as possible and provided us with many great tips and plenty of food. He renovated and furnished the house with a lot of love. We missed nothing, and if we had, we would only have had to ask. We will gladly come back again!

  • Very spacious apartment with amazing views. We felt embraced by the country side. The apartment is simple in a old stone charming house, but it has everything needed. We enjoyed the pool area very much, we divided our days between slow-sun soaking-pool-reading mornings and excursions in the afternoons. There are several beautiful villages to visit around like Vamos, hikes nearby and don’t miss swimming in the Ompragialos bay. You need a car for sure. The hosts were not intrusive and always helpful when they were needed. Recommended.

  • Rustic house located in a quiet environment. The view of the mountains is beautiful especially in the evening with splendid sunsets. The pool is beautiful. The linens and towels were changed several times a week, which we enjoyed. A few minor problems with running water during our stay (water cuts) but still resolved. We had a very pleasant 2 week stay. The owners are very friendly, helpful and always available when needed. We will return if the opportunity arises.

    Stéphanie2017-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Villa Viola. The small houses are a bit secluded, but it is very quiet and you have a nice view from the terrace. The downside is that you have to drive quite a long distance, which does not bother us very much. Otherwise the price performance ratio was great, with us were every 3-4 days the towels and the sheets changed. The pool was almost always for us alone. Thank you for a great holiday. We will certainly come again. Greetings from Germany Julian and Rachel

    Ο χώρος μου είναι κοντά σε παραλία, δημόσια συγκοινωνία, αεροδρόμιο, δραστηριότητες για οικογένειες και νυκτερινή ζωή. Λόγοι που θα σας αρέσει ο χώρος μου: άνετο κρεβάτι, κουζίνα και άνετο περιβάλλον. Ο χώρος μου είναι κατάλληλος για ζευγάρια και δραστηριότητες για ένα άτομο.
    Quiet, cool house build with stones in the traditional Cretan way. Ideal for relaxation, with pictures of nature and the sound of the sea echoing during the night. With view at a vegetable garden from which you can cut your own fresh vegetables. In a traditional style, in the center of village Kalyves.
  • George and Eva are so generous in helping, the make life seem easy. The location is perfect, quiet but close to all facilities and the beach. The garden is full of mediterranean profumes. I nearly felt at home there. It feels like a genuine place and not the usual room for tourists. Highly recommended.

  • Great Airbnb, everything worked very well. We really enjoyed the garden and cutting fresh vegetables. Definitely to recommend!

  • The apartment was beautiful with lovely little touches, a relaxing and secluded atmosphere, while having easy access to beach and shops. The view of the surrounding garden was so peaceful and we were invited to help ourselves to the home grown veg. George and Eva were very welcoming and it felt like they genuinely wanted us to feel at ease with the right balance of leaving us to ourselves, but also being available to give tips and help so we could experience the best of the area. We saw an unforgettable local music night of traditional Cretan music, thanks to them going the extra mile to let us know the interesting things that go on in the area. Generous and welcoming we’d highly recommend staying there to anyone!

  • What a fantastic place ! Me and my best friend came to Kalyves on our summer holiday and stayed at George’s place. It was absolutely one of the best Airbnb’s either of us have stayed in. George picked me up from the bus stop and showed me around, with lots of local tips and advice. Raki and fruit on arrival and we could eat the vegetables growing in the garden. It was sparkling clean and very stylish - I would come back here again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for making our holiday so special. Emma & Rose

  • It was a wonderful time in Kalyves. Great welcome, the best location, very comfortable. It was very nice to receive compliments from George and Eva on arrival and departure. Highly recommended apartments for living. Best regards to little dog Sansa))

  • George and Eva’s house is a real find. It was absolutely gorgeous, both inside and out. It couldn’t be in a better position in the village and the extra touches: vegetables and raki, were really appreciated. I look forward to coming again! N

  • I highly recommend this accommodation. A housing in retz of garden full of charm. A cocoon of freshness where we spent a very pleasant week. Everything is nearby within 5 min walk (Beaches, supermarket, bar, restaurant ...) Just need to take the car to get back inland or reach La Canné. Possibility to park easily in front of the house. Adorable guests always available and full of little touches. (Possibility of tasting vegetables from the garden, small gifts, ...)
