Perfect retreat for peace & tranquility, tucked away in the south of Rethymno countryside, with easy access to lovely beaches, archeological sites, the beach town of Plakias. Summer is amazing here, while fall, winter and spring are equally interesting, one can really find him/her self over this endless simple beauty. The village of Kanevos is serene and beautiful all year round! The house is located 30 meters away from the famous taverna Iliomanolis, one of the best taverns in Rethymno.
“We stayed 4 days in Andreas' house. (couple and two children). The parents Olga and Nikos are two lovely people, very discreet but present when needed. They welcomed us and looked after us making us taste some of their recipes. The house is in an excellent position to visit the main and beautiful beaches of the area. It is located in a small village with a good and cheap home-style tavern. The small but functional apartment has everything you need and is very clean. It has a beautiful terrace which unfortunately is not used by us because of the wind. Highly recommended.”
The "Bright Side" house is located in the village of Sellia in South Rethymno. It overlooks to the mesmerizing Libyan Sea and the wellknown tourist location Plakias, which is 3 km away from the house ,has remarcably beautifull and clean beaches and decent nightlife. Furthemore near, are the exotic Prevelli Palm Beach, and the popular Kalypso Beach for a heart soothing trip. Within walking distance travelers can taste the traditional Cretan cuisine and enjoy long walks in the grafic village.
“We had a great week at the property of Andreas. Check-in was great. Andreas responds immediately to messages or calls. The view over the bay of Plakias is terrific. Everything is very clean. The kitchen is quite well equipped, coffee maker, toaster, kettle etc. Also a washing machine including detergent is provided. Perfect! Although the house is located directly on the thoroughfare of the mountain village Sellia, but this is not a problem, but: You are just in the middle of the mountain village life. A supermarket can be reached on foot in 1 minute. Right next to the property is the tavern Merastri, where you can eat delicious cretan. By car you can reach Plakias and the beach in a few minutes. For excursions in the south of Crete a great starting point. We gladly recommend the accommodation. ,”

“First of all.... WOW! Just WOW!! Me and my girlfriend did some round trip in Crete an stayed 3 nights at the wonderful house in the coves. Beside the nice architecture itself there is this beautiful view, which u can’t get enough of it. Gianni and his wife prepared us every morning a wonderful breakfast and served at our terrace. This is the place to calm down and relax. Just listen to the nature and get in your zone. No noise at all :) And not to mention the privacy! No disturbance, almost like your own home. The private pool was great. Water was fresh (as it comes from the mountain), but still nice. My girlfriend enjoyed it, even took morning swims before breakfast! The area of the location is nice as well. Awesome restaurants with modern and traditional cuisine in Sellia and Plakias. Also for trips this area is very recommended. We went to Kalypso beach, Schineria beach and my favorite spot Loutro (made for instagram:-) All in all we really enjoyed our vacation and will definitely come back!!! A big big thanks to Gianni and Emanuela for this great hospitality and not to forget all of the good tips we got from Gianni regarding places to see and places to eat! Just top! Best regards, Laila & Benjamin”
