  • I never had such a wonderful place in crete. This place is an absolute recommendation for those who love the atmosphere of nature, beauty and comfort. Short distances to the beach and other attractive locations. Thanks to Annushka!

    Andreas2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Annushka made everything to let us feel at home, welcome and enjoying our holidays. It was one of our best accomodations that we ever booked. The view from the terrace is fantastic, the house is build and decorated so wonderful and you feel immediatelly relaxed. Annushka helped us out when we had a problem with our arrival, brought us tea, offered her herbs garden, gave us from her olive oil, recommended the best beaches in the neighbourhood and so many other little things that we appreciated and will keep in our memories. We will definetly come back again and highly recommend the flat. Thanks for making our stay so unforgettable.

    Helena2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Annushka and her family have been more than welcoming to us. The place is wonderful, both in terms of location and comfort! Everything is authentic and beautiful! Thank you for everything. We will come back !

    Clément2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Annushka is a charming and attentive host. The studio is beautiful and has amazing views over the hill and the Messara to the mountains. Annushka gave us a lot of useful local infornation. We had a great stay. Very highly recommended

    Scott2019-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Annushkas place was lovely! The location is great and everything around was perfect. We would love to come again :)

    Antonia2019-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • What to say… A haven of peace, beauty, simplicity, benevolence. The communication with Annushka to prepare the stay is fast, fluid. The welcome is unique, terribly warm. The studio attached to the house of Annushka and Ori is simple and comfortable. A large bright room, a perfect bed, a fireplace that works wonders for the gray and cool days of winter. All the details are arranged with great taste and care, the starry curtains, the beautiful hanging with the peacock, the handmade blankets, the bathroom so pretty. It feels good right now, we could even stay long ... The terrace opens on a greenery, the paradise of the birds. The view of the plain of Messara and the chain of Psiloritis is a daily delight. The village of Kouses and the surrounding villages are authentic and alive, even in the middle of winter. What about the hosts, Ori and Annushka, their kindness, their generosity, their constant concern for your well-being. A real happy meeting! This place is unique, it is a small paradise hidden away from the hills of olive groves. A big thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will come back!

    Julie2019-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Annushka and Ori are wonderful, down to earth people. Their dogs are just as friendly and lovable like their masters. We spent two nights at their studio. It was like paradise. The view is bombastic as far as the eye can see, olive trees and mountains. The room was cosy with a beautiful fireplace. The bed was very big and had a very good comfortable matress. Kouses is a great place with pure nature and well situated for cultural outings. Annushka gives you advice as to where to go and what to see. Good base place. If one day we drift to Kouses again, this would be the no. 1 and only place we would stay. Our stay was short...but sweet. Thank you Anushka and Ori

    Also, in a short distance from the village there are many beaches and famous archaeological sites.

Opposite you can see the highest mountain of Crete, Psiloritis and from left side the southern Cretan Sea. It is worth mentioning that in the village there are the famous towers of Kourmoulis but for now the entrance is forbidden to the general public. Within 6 km. From the village is the famous archaeological site of Festos, Gortyn and Agia Triada. Nearby are the beaches of Matala, Kommos, Kalamaki and the Red Tower.

  • Kouses Estate is a wonderful house, furnished with style. Fully equipped to great detail. The view of the valley and the mountain of Psiloritis from the balcony unfold before your eyes. The village is small, picturesque and absolutely serene. Ideal for relaxation! The hosts are genuine and hospitable people that will provide you with more than enough! We loved the place and we are definitely going back!

    Sophia2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved the house which has a breathtaking view on the mountains. It was perfectly clean, had very comfortable beds and a very modern, newly furnished style. The kitchen was very good to cook in! We appreciated the warm hospitality (and the delicious olive oil) and can absolutely recommend staying at the house!

    Adina2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best place we have been. Book without hesitation. Very nice and friendly hosts. The house has everything you need. Beautiful view. This is the best place of 4 where we are relaxing in Crete. The hosts greeted us very warmly, we arrived late and they took care and bought us products for free at the supermarket for breakfast. and also met with wonderful local Alcohol and a huge head of Homemade goat cheese, and a large Vase of various fruits. and lastly they presented a bottle of olive oil and several packages of herbal tea from the local hills. In this house we spent the best days of our vacation. Unlimited Thank them for this vacation!

    Kate2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • When travelling becomes an experience beyond the usual touristic paths. Kouses is a quiete, wonderful village and its sourrandings are gorgeous. Manolis and his family made our stay absolutely memorable and the place is perfectly located to reach the beaches around Matala and towards the South in the area of Kaloi Limenes. We discovered a lovely corner of this amazing island and we were fortunate to make new friends. We look forward to returning to this lovely home and village.

    Massimo2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This trip is our first visit to Crete and we are pleased to be fortunate to stay at the Manolis house. Exceptionally clean, comfortable, equipped with all amenities, tastefully furnished home. We traveled with a child of five. We did not experience any inconvenience associated with accommodation or security. They met us very warmly, like relatives, settled right there, explained everything and showed everything. The hosts prepared homemade cheese, fruits, olive oil, local alcoholic drinks and drinking water for our arrival, and later brought us the freshest goat milk, lemons and oranges from their garden, chocolate, cookies. The hosts are amazing people! Kind, helpful and extremely welcoming! Always in touch and ready to help. The place Kouses, where the house is located, is very quiet and picturesque. The terrace of the house offers beautiful views of the mountains and olive gardens. For a comfortable ride from home to the beaches and attractions of Crete, you need a car. The roads are mostly good, there are no problems driving either a large or a compact car. We spent almost a month on Crete and are undoubtedly very glad that we met Manolis and her family! With all my heart we thank the hosts for a wonderful vacation!

    Anastasiia2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! Actually, it is better than it looks in photos. Great place, very very clean, with a great view and full equipped. Manolis had already left in the fridge for us some local cheese (mizithra), olives, raki and fresh fruits, and even brought us during our stay lemons and olive oil. It was excellent, I highly recommend it!!

    Vicky2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Charming location, very peaceful place with an amazing view from the balcony and a marvellous house: spacious, luminous and well decorated. The hosts are available and very welcoming: Manolis gave us some nice local homemade products to take with us and John recommand us some nice restaurants in Matala (15 minutes drive from the house). We had an amazing stay, we recommand the place without hesitation !

    A new and very cosy flat , with nice sea and mountain view in one of the most historical (festos 3km) and popular destination(matala 2km) in the center of the traditional and famous Cretan village Pitsidia.
  • I can really recommend this place VERY much. Maria was very helpful, always available and the accommodation is one of the nicest I have ever booked through AirBnB. Everything was very clean, a breathtaking view from the terrace and I can give 5 stars in all areas. I would come here again and again :)!

    Birthe2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful house! Very convenient location to do the southern part and the archaeological parks, moreover the village in which it is located is wonderful, full of taverns where to eat well and spend the right. My boyfriend and I had a great time and would definitely recommend it.

    Alessandra2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We were pleasantly surprised by the apartment! It’s bigger than we thought, nicely decorated and very well equipped. It has a beautiful big balcony, where we always ate our meals. Maria was a very nice and friendly host. She was really fast in writing back und made sure that we had a good stay. Thank you for everything!

    Charis2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice et quiet place with beautiful view. I recommend !

    Manon2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Dominant location set back from the main road, and matala. Large terrace very appreciable. Be careful for children because the walls are a bit low. Sanitary outside, but no problem. Kitchen area, well equipped. We recommend. José & Mimi

    José & Mimi2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • The journey at Pitsidia was fantastic! The little town is full of life, little taverns, beautiful streets and landscapes and kind local people! The house is tiny but it has everything, a nice bedroom, a small but functioning kitchen and a small bathroom next to a little balcony. The best part is the main terrace, facing on Pitsidia and the sea at the horizon, fresh and windy at night; we spent hours eating there, watching sunsets, stars and drinking local Roseé. The house is 5 mins away from Matala and Kommos Beach, and quite near by car to the main attractions of the south. We went to the hippie caves of Matala, to Red Beach (you HAVE to taste Yannis’ mojito there), Preveli Beach, Skinaria and Small Triopetra. You can’t miss the daily cruise from Agia Galini to Paximadia Islands with captain Nikos and his awesome barbecue and private desert beach. Maria and her parents are really kind and available, they gave us a beach umbrella and advices about the journey, and saved us when we forgot the keys inside the house! Highly recommended, we already miss it! Carlo and Anna

    Carlo2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome stay in Maria & Vaggelis guesthouse! It's a very charming and calm appartment with a great view on the sea and the mountains! Maria is really welcoming and gave us good advice about the things to do close to Pitsidia!

The outdoor area with terrace is beautiful. The owner Isabelle and her mother, who lives on the other side of the house, are very helpful and had some tips for us. We would rent this apartment again at any time.

    Gabriele2019-08-04T00:00:00Z

    Kouses, Greece

    This is an exceptional house in the traditional village of Kouses, southern Crete. It has 2 spacious bedrooms and 1,5 bathrooms. It’s settled in a beautiful herbal garden overlooking the Messara valley and the mountain of Psiloritis. It’s a great place to relax and enjoy the culture of Crete.

  • Everything was perfect ! The view during the sunrise is amazing ! In very quiet village with all you need very close ! Pela is reactive and disponible if you have question ! I recommend this place a 100% !!

    Louisa2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • We were really impressed by the beautiful house with the many terraces and the magnificent view over the Messara plain. The interiors are extremely lovingly designed and have everything you need on holiday. For the kids (and us) it was great to have an extra floor upstairs. The bedrooms have air conditioning, with which you can relax at night from the heat. Kouses itself is a beautiful and at the same time very authentic village with many winding streets, a small church and a lovely herb shop. From here you can reach all interesting destinations by car (west and south coast, excavations, etc.). The highlights were the morning breakfast and the evening sunset with a cool drink on the north terrace. For us it was a fantastic stay here in Kouses and we like to come back.

    Jan2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Kouses is a lovely village and a great destination for a vaccation. The house is really nice, very well decorated with a fantastic view. Pela is a lovely host and we would be happy to return again!

    Casa LiaYa is a complex which consists of four studios (Karma, Gioia, Amare and Felice). The complex is on the old Matala Road just a 15 minutes walk from Matala beach - the legendary hippie caves - and the Center of the village. The complex is ideal for those who want to party but also want a quiet spot to relax and enjoy a quiet night’s sleep. The studios were completely renovated in May 2018 and they offer cooking facilities and equipment, free wifi and a flat-screen smart TV.
    Located in Matala Karma is a 25m2 studio situated 1km from Matala beach (15 minutes walking distance). This peaceful, air-conditioned studio is composed of 1 bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a WC with shower and a balcony. A flat-screen smart TV and free Wi-Fi is also available. The property offers a garden and free private parking.
    The artificial caves in the cliff of the Matala bay were created in the Neolithic Age. Matala was the port of Phaistos during the Minoan period. In the year 220 BC., Matala was occupied by the Gortynians, and during the Roman period, Matala became the port of Gortys. In the 1st and 2nd centuries, the caves were used as tombs. One of the caves is called "Brutospeliana" because according to the legend it was frequented by the Roman general Brutus. Matala was then a fishing village. In the 1960s, the caves were occupied by hippies who were later driven out by the church and the military junta. Now Matala is a small village living mainly from tourism. The legendary Matala festival reunites the hippies from around the world and brings thousands of people in the area. Canadian folk singer Joni Mitchell's experiences with the Matala hippies were immortalised in her 1971 song "Carey". Matala is one of the few beaches in Greece that have been awarded a Blue Flag. Komo beach is famous for the protection of careta-careta turtles. Red beach is a little known discreet naturist beach that is reached only by foot . Matala was the port of Phaistos during the Minoan period, following the destruction of Kommos, and the port of Gortys during the Roman period when Gortys was proclaimed capital of Crete by the Romans. The Gortynians occupied Matala at 220 B.C. Ruins of the ancient city are still visible on the seabed as the ancient city was sunk in the sea. The archaeological pick has unearthed some traces of the palaces built by the nobles from the ancient cities of Phaistos and Gortys. There is also a cave known as "Brutospeliana" and legend has it that it was frequented by the Roman general Brutus. Owing to its exceptional natural beauty, Matala became the meeting place of the "Flower Children" in 1968. Although their conference failed to realize, yet they were compensated by the incomparable beauty of the area, which so much contrasts with the concept of destruction and war.

  • My boyfriend and I enjoyed Mike and Olympia are two very nice owners and willing to give you advice on places to visit! The apartment is very nice and clean and is equipped with everything you need! I recommend you try the Raftis restaurant where they work because you eat very well and the prices are honest!

  • Highly recommend staying with Mike and Olympia! The apartment was clean and cozy. Mike was very helpful in providing tips and suggestions for how to spend my time in Crete. Also highly recommend eating at their restaurant! It’s so close to the home and was one of the best meals I had in Greece!

    Meg2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Perfectly pleased with our two days in Pitsidia, the apartment was clean and in line with our expectations. A little extra for the welcome of Mike who took the time to introduce us to the things to do in the area and the good addresses. We appreciated. Thank you Mike and Olympia!

    Clem2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Good apartment if you want to avoid the center of Matala while being close to Kommos Beach. Clean and compliant apartment. Mike greeted us very well with local tips and addresses not to be missed.

    Anne2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Mike and Olympia are super nice. The accommodation is sparkling clean and contains everything you need. In addition to the private balcony you can also use different terraces. We slept there for five nights. The best thing about the property is Mike's local knowledge and advice. We have blindly relied on his suggestions and had five wonderful days in Pitsidia and the surrounding area. Mike and Olympia are very reluctant to advertise the restaurant they work in. The Raftis is highly recommended! We heartily wish everyone a stay at Mike and Olympia.

She gave us recommendations about where to eat and find food and things to do in the area. The apartment itself was better than the pictures, a perfect space for relaxing. I would absolutely stay again and hope to return one day.

Her apartment on top of here house is just beautiful. Very well equipped with everything you need and very clean and organized. The terrace is beautiful and we enjoyed there good times. Kalamaki is a small and cosy town with a nice beach. Definitely go to Delfinia taverna. Absolutely the best place for dine. Very good service and excellent food. Sunbeds and umbrellas are free at the beach. This town and especially Korinas place is highly recommended!!!

The terrasse and the pool perfect for some afternoon chill after a morning of visits.The kitten family was a welcomed bonus! Also, location is pretty good when visiting center or the island. Last but not least, Vivi and her faily where exceptionally welcoming and thoughful, made us really feel like we were with family. BEST host we ever had so far with Airbnb. EFCHARISTO VIVI, hope to come visit again in the future!

It was everything it said it was, excellent value for money, lovely apartment and a very welcoming pool. Vivi is a super host, lovely, friendly and caring.

  • It is a very nice and clean apartment. You will be warmly welcomed and checked in.

    Schuler2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Everything went smooth; we met up with Konstantinos' mother, who gave us the keys, showed us around the flat and gave us all the information we needed. The flat was very clean and we missed nothing during our stay. There's a lot of storage space in the flat and a big bathroom (the toilet and the shower are in the same room). The flat is located very close to the city centre with 3 grocery shops and the city square in the immediate vicinity. We would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for accommodation in Pitsidia.

    Martin2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • The stay in Kostas apartment was wonderful! His parents (who are on site) are super warm and always available. Instead of Matal or Kalamaki I would definitely recommend Pitsidia, a quiet relaxed place.

    Lisa2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is spotless, complete, everything you need, and more (for example Netflix!). The welcome was warm from the parents of Kostantinos, who were very nice and explained all the details. The location of the apartment is central in the small town of Pitsidia, very small but with taverns and essential services. It is very close to Matala and excellent as a fixed point for touring the entire south coast of Crete, because it is close to the best beaches and places of interest but quiet and not very touristy. I would go back there without thinking twice !!

    Ilaria2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Kostas apartment is very nice. Although he is not there, his parents looked after us from check-in to check-out. Two super warm people with good tips and always open to ask. I personally found it much cozier in the small town than in Heraklion, Chania or Agios Nikolaos. The people there are all very friendly, really worth a visit!

    Stefanie2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in this apartment for a few days, but I can say that it is the house where we slept better, a very comfortable bed, the tv with netflix so you could also see Italian programs, a washer and dryer, an apartment that was not lacking even the umbrella and that say of the excellent cleanliness ...... we spent some peaceful days. THE town of Pitsidia is very quiet and is very close to the busy Matala and after spending the day wandering around or on the beach it was nice to come back to this quiet apartment to rest.

    Concetta2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, cozy little accommodation in which everything is available what you need during your stay. Sonja and Giannis (Konstantinos parents) were incredibly friendly and gave us a wonderful time. We were super satisfied!

    Manuel2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Check in was very easy, Konsta’s parents met us at the main road and showed us the apartment. Sonja speaks English, so she explained us all the details. Apartment looks exactly like on the pictures, we loved the scandinavian vibe of it, so cozy that we felt like home right away. Also it’s very well equipped (iron, hair dryer, washing machine, full set of the kitchen utensil, air conditioning). Very nice gesture a welcome raki. 🙂Apartment is located very close to the village Main Street and amazingly quite at night time. Parking is just right out of the entrance. A lot of restaurants are in a few minutes walking distance. Matala city is a 10 minutes drive. Konsta was responding to our questions very quickly. Enjoyed our stay quite a lot and definitely would come back!

  • It was a great time and we were happy to spend the night here. The room + surroundings was beautiful and the location was great. The hosts were very nice and helpful and we also often snacks or drinks gave what we found very attentive! The only minor downside is the small bathroom which flooded slightly which did not bother us.

    Lisann2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Giannis is a great host. He was very welcoming and gave good recommendations for locations like beaches and restaurants. The room is small (as described) but it really had everything we needed. The courtyard is very beautiful and we spend some nice time outside. We definitely recommend to stay in Giannis apartment.

    Andrea2019-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing hospitality, Giannis is a great host! We enjoyed our stay very much and are happy to come back.

    Andreas2018-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Giannis and his wife Kiki are very kind hosts. Kiki was so nice to make dinner for us because we arrived pretty late, Giannis provided US with lots of Information, olive oil and Raki. The house is very beautiful with a good equiped kitchen. Pitsidia is a nice traditional village, by car we were visiting the places in this area.

    Andrej2018-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Giannis and his wife are very nice hosts. :) They gave us recommendations what to do in the area and often brought us selfmade food. Unfortunately the WIFI was not working properly, but Giannis gave his best to immediately fix it.

    Alina2018-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • It was great to stay there, we were so warmly received, got great tips for our onward journey and everything was so nicely decorated. The room is small, but you have everything you need and the house is very nice. it was great there! I recommend it to anyone who likes family and home :)

    Birgit2018-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • The room is exactly as the pictures show. It is quite small, but includes everything you need. The equipment of the kitchen is really good. From the toaster to the milk warmer you will find everything. At the beginning I had some doubts, whether on the small cooking combination (small oven size of a microwave, with two stove tops on top of it) really works, but we have wonderful dishes cooked with it :) also the village Pitsidia is really sweet and has everything you need needs several supermarkets and delicious travernen. It is also worthwhile to rent a car, because the nearby beach is a 10 minute drive. Giannis was very hospitable and picked us up at one point in town when we arrived, when we did not find the place right away. He also gave us many tips to explore the surrounding countryside. We felt very comfortable.

    Pitsidia, Greece

    Initially built in 1911 my grandparents place has a common small yard with the neighboring house. It is strongly recommended for 2 people since the internal staircase is going through the bedrooms, however it can host up to 4. Pros: Fully functional kitchen. Cozy ground floor, weather protected since a big part of the northern part is submerged into the hill. Cons: The internal staircase is a bit dangerous for little children not fully finished yet.
    Originally built in 1911 this was my grandparents house and the house that my father was born and grew up. Me and my brother renovated the ruined house back at early 2010's for a personal residence during our stay in the village. The house kept the north side of the wall since it was submerged
  • Life is full of surprises and Kamilari is one of them. On top you will be staying in a beautiful house. Manoli’s place to me was great, quiet and fully equipped for a nice break. The nicest Tavernas are literally around the corner. Can recommend this place to everybody wanting to escape the touristy places for a couple of days!

    Christine2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good stay in this welcoming house and very well located in Kamilari. Manolis was very responsive during our requests. We will definitely be back and will advise you as well.

    Philippe2018-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • First of all Kamilari was our favorite place to stay in Crete. Manolis is very kind and his family house is perfectly located and is provided with everything one neeđ. A very good memories of this journey. We hyghly recommend.

    Sophie2018-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis's house has everything you need for a pleasant stay in the wonderful village of Kamilari. The house is traditional with a charming character, clean, and quite. Manolis and his mom are lovely people who did everything to make sure my vacation was perfect. Always available to address and question and offer and advice. I highly recommend to stay at Manolis' s if you plan a vacation in Crete. You will not regret it!

    Nicola2018-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay! Lovely food in Loggia taverna in the square below the house. Would recommend for anyone looking for a village house with character.

    Lucy2018-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment has character and charm, it is well equipped. A spiral staircase serves in an original way the three open levels. The village is very typical with small local shops and very practical restaurants.

    Kamilari, Crete Region, Greece

    The holiday home is located at the edge of Kamilari. It is a 100-year-old, Cretan natural stone house, renovated with lots of love. In front of the house you can relax under a pergola with a view into the very romantic garden. A place to cool down and feeling at home straight away. The house with its flowering garden conveys the impression of being immersed in a fairy tale. Over the corner it is connected with a second, similar house, in which the owners, a friendly Swiss couple lives.
    In the village you will find a selection of several good tavernas as well as cozy Kafenia, the traditional Greek cafe. You can go for nice walks through the olive trees, find Minoan tombs on a nearby hill, walk to Agia Triada or Faistos, several thousand year old temples of the Minoans or find the oldest olive tree (about 3,000 years) in the groves.
  • We can only agree with the praise of the predecessors: Rosi and Andre are great hosts, the house and the terrace a dream, everything is there, what you need. Absolutely recommendable!

    Maria2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • You can not imagine better hosts than André and Rosi! They are so friendly, helpful and open, at the same time restrained and let us do our thing. When our little son fell ill, they gave us great support and gave us addresses of paediatricians on site. They had great tips for us and always an open ear. We spent three wonderful weeks in the fairytale house! The house is totally beautiful and lovingly decorated and there is everything you need. The beaches and taverns in the area are a dream. We can only recommend to anyone, here to vacation! Thank you so much!

    Annika2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house is gorgeous with lovely, playful details. The large bathtub has delighted our two year olds. Nearby there is a supermarket and some tavernas. (Milonas we highly recommend it!) Since the roads are quite steep, you should not be quite unfit when walking, but of course everything is accessible by car. There are beautiful beaches nearby and maybe interesting for families with children, also a few small playgrounds. (One is right next to the small supermarket within walking distance.) We were greeted warmly, have received many tips, could wash our laundry on the spot and we especially on the filled fruit bowl and the daily fresh lemons from our own tree! We would come back immediately!

    Helena2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • André and Rosie really understood the principle airbnb. Far from business, they welcome you warmly in a beautiful little house where everything is there to feel at home. In addition, the exceptional garden is a real palette of colors and scents. What a joy to spend time in this haven of peace! What better to ask: Rosie and André welcome you with great kindness, do not hesitate to advise or help and yet know how to be discreet. Thank you, thank you, again.

    Catherine2019-05-31T00:00:00Z

  • In April 2019 we spent wonderful days with Andre and Rosi in Kamilari. The typical rather simple facade does not give any idea that behind the blue garden gate a beautiful garden and the owner's house and the holiday house are hidden. Even the pictures in the description of the house had made us curious. A large lemon tree with bright fruits, numerous succulents, palm trees and flowering plants make you feel like you have arrived in Crete. The house is not luxurious, but very comfortably furnished. The colors, shapes and materials used are very pleasant and show Arabic influences. In the small kitchen is everything you need. Only a thermos for the coffee was missing. The bathroom is exceptional! The bed is a futon bed with a very good mattress. In the bedroom is a bookshelf with many interesting, German-language books. Andre and Rosi have welcomed us very warmly. We got a lot of tips from them for hiking, good beaches and excursions in the area and felt that we were more like friends rather than customers. The village of Kamilari is a very pleasant little village with several very good taverns, a small supermarket, a bakery and several shops. The transport links are very good for exploring the southern parts of the island by car. We will certainly come back to Crete and will definitely stay with Andre and Rosi in their Fairytalehouse.

    Herwig2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is equipped with many lovely details. We felt very well and have recovered very well. Andre is very hospitable. A place as you imagine Crete. We will be back

  • Our 8 days at Andrés and Rosis guesthouse were totally perfect. They always supported us with helpful tips for the nicest places in south crete. The house and the garden are even more beautiful then on the pictures. Everything we needed was there. Nearby in Kamilari there are really good tavernas and a supermarket. We really had a great time there! Thank you André and Rosi!!

  • Located in the village of Kouses, the apartment of Zitakis offers a magnificent view of sea and mountains (very spacious terrace), a beautiful living space and absolute calm. We felt very well received with a lot of human warmth. The location is perfect 10 minutes from the beaches of Matala and in a very typical village but has an amazing herb shop and a tavern where we ate very well.

    Pierre2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Just perfect!

    Gaston2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a calm and quiet place to relax and connect with the locals this airbnb is for you. The welcoming was so warm and inviting, we got welcomed by an old Lady, the owner's mom. She is an inspiration. 96 years old and still an amazing personality with a good heart. The view from the terrace is amazing. Matala is a 15 min ride. It's worth being a little bit outside town. Communication was super quick and so friendly. Would definitely come back!! Thank you :)

    Stefanie2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • The wide and panoramic terrace corresponds more or less to my idea of paradise. Great location in a real Cretan village. Excellent telephone communication with Dimitri, caring and nice Mrs. Zhaneta who takes care of the reception, the delicious "grandmother" who is on the ground floor ... all kind people ... even the neighbor!

The place is perfect couples, who like to make holidays close to the beach, but in a green Oasis with lots of plants.
    The Studio Panagiota is a wonderful modern space located in Kokkinos Pirgos, at the "Oasis holiday houses". The double bedroom studio offers private accommodation for 2 persons and has all the cooking facilities required. You can share the BBQ area and pizza oven with other guests and enjoy the majestic oasis, the wonderful sandy beach and the surrounding mountains.
    Perfectly located in Kokkinos Pirgos, just 2 minutes to the beach, with the taverns and cafes.

The house Aspasia offers you all you need for a wonderful stay in South Crete. You are in the center of the Messara bay, in all directions you discover nice places - with the boat to the Paximadia Island, walk to Agia Galini, visit Matala and the famous caves... there are many options and we would be happy to help you, if you have any questions.
  • A lovely, clean, cozy furnished and new apartment, that has everything you need and more. The owner Giannis also lives in one of the houses and was a welcoming, friendly man. We had a few raki with him and he showed us his lovely garden. Fresh fruit in the room, fresh eggs from the chicken and raki in the refrigerator. Coffee and olive oil to use. A washing machine. We walked about 1 km to get to a nice, not crowded beach. The area has a lot of greenhouses. Some barking dogs (as in most places we have been to in Crete). Quiet area. If you like the touristy areas more, you can get there by car. Directions on airbnb send us about 7 km further, but I'm sure they will make this right. Heike is friendly and very quick in her responding. Thanks for the lovely stay!

    Marieke2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful apartment set within a set of houses that gave shape to a mini stone village. Friendly and helpful hosts.

  • Lovely Studio! We had a warm welcome and felt very comfortable in Patrinas place. We enjoyed the warm cretan weather and great food in the outdoor kitchen between all the beatiful plants and showering under starry sky. The studio is right in the heart of Pitsidia, but it also feels really private up there on the roof! A minimarket (Kostas' - good oil, wine, raki, cheese etc. for fair prices!) and a couple of good restaurants are in the direct vicinity. If you are a light sleeper, village life might wake you up in the morning. The location is great to explore southern Crete. We had a wonderful stay and would come back anytime! :)

    Genevieve2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • I agree with the other reviews on all points: a wonderful place to unwind and a very gracious, discreet hostess. A single drawback arises when in autumn the typical Crete storms occur. Then you can not stay on the terrace, even the showers in the open air is not so nice. I will come back anyway!

    Corinna2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place. Simple but it has everything you really need.. and something more for get relaxed. Perfectly clean. A special place with a really kind holder.

  • The apartment is nice and new and functional. It was very clean and was even cleaned there during our week. Andreas was a very attentive host and gave us good advice. Pitsidia is a really nice and quiet place and especially in comparison to the surrounding places directly on the sea much more contemplative and comfortable.

  • Stay at the Vintage House was fantastic. The structure responds exactly to the photos, it is comfortable and perfectly located for exploring the beautiful nearby beaches. The father of Agnieszka is really helpful and accurate in the description of the house and of the sights around Pitsidia, a small town but full of very nice people and taverns where to eat in the evening. This structure would definitely recommend it !!!

    Erica2016-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • All in accordance with the offer and posted photographs of the apartment. Nothing przekoloryzowane or bypassed. Fantastic area, nice and quiet village. I would recommend for those who value peace (in nearby Matala can revel, but as it wants and not by compulsion). A great starting point for exploring this part of Crete. With a clear conscience I will be recommending this place to friends.

    Beata2016-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Andreas, father of Agnieszka greeted us late in the evening in Pitsidia, we explained everything in the property and also immediately taken to a meal in a very nice tavern on the main road (Anna & Alex; very friendly hosts and delicious food. Tip!). There we received from Andreas also equal hervorrgende do in the vicinity - the Agios Pavlos beach, the beach of Triopetra where you can very well eat fish in Pavlos tavern, with stunning views of the sea, a very good fish restaurant in Kalamaki etc. - unfortunately we did not manage everything in the 4 days. Andreas was friendly, helpful and replied to inquiries by e-mail always fast. The property is very nice, fully renovated in a traditional style, with a very nice roof terrace overlooking Pitsidia and the sea. The apartment is located in the village, tavernas and small supermarkets are nearby. Just around the corner is the dream factory, a café / bistro with an incredible breakfast. Highly recommended is the course Bunga Bunga beach at Komos Beach. Good products in extremely casual atmosphere. However, it is advisable to go from Pitsidia by car or bicycle, racing would still take longer. All in all 4 wonderful days in Pitsidia. Thanks to Andreas for your hospitality and helpfulness. Hope to see you again in Pitsidia.

  • The apartment is very large, really beautiful and well-kept, with lots of details and little attention that I haven't found in other structures in Crete. We are 5 minutes from Matala, reachable among other things with one of the few comfortable roads of the island, and also those who want to stop at the village of Pitsidia would find a nice village with mini markets and taverns. Free public parking is 400m from the apartment. Zacharias is a wonderful host, welcoming and friendly. We would have stayed longer!

  • We chose this accommodation for a stop near Matala during our stay in Crete and loved the place! The accommodation is in a small quiet street and full of charm. Everything is in accordance with the photos. Pitsidia being 5 minutes from Matala and Phaistos by car it was very easy to get around, and we found good taverns to enjoy typical Cretan dishes right next door! I highly recommend ! Thank you for this great stay!

    Alexia2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely small apartment. Cared about the furniture and placed in a context renovated in a purely white island on the walls, blue doors and many colorful bougainvilleas. In front of the door is a private terrace set in a common internal courtyard, with a small table with two armchairs and a swing. The village of Pitsidia is delightful, in the evening there are nice taverns and we also found a concert. Much nicer and less touristy than Matala.

    Valentina2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice little house, terrace ideal for eating outside. Host very friendly and available. House not even 10 minutes from Matala. You just have to pay attention to the shower.

    Anne-Laure2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is lovely (clean, spacious, well equipped) as is its outdoor environment. The air conditioning allows to spend nights in the cool. The terrace is very beautiful (flowers all around). In the village, a real Cretan atmosphere emerges. On the other hand, we were disappointed by the advice given by the host. The recommended beach is actually a bunkering place and the "road" along the coast is neither more nor less than a very difficult road. We strongly recommend, however, this romantic place.

  • Mythos Suites in Dyskos is a nice hotel - the studios are well appointed. Maria and Manolis, her husband are lovely hosts - Maria was particularly nice and helpful. From the perspective of location, Dyskos beach is a nice beach in a quiet hamlet. All in all, highly recommended

    Apartment's view is amazing because you can see simultaneously the surrounding mountains and the valley.The village is very peaceful. It's near to Mires,Matala,Festos,Zaros,Agiofarago and near to plenty of other amazing places.Also we can suggest you incredible places.You will see the traditional way of life and join local activities if you ask for it.My mother can offer you traditional meals and teach you how to cook them!!!You can read more below and if you want to ask something, just do it :)
    All visitors,as you can read from their reviews,felt like they were in their house. As you can see from the pictures,there are two bedrooms in case you need. Both rooms have access to the large balcony and to the bathroom. There are two kitchens that you can use whenever you want!!! Also there is one more bedroom with a single bed. P.S: I have to mention that the pink bed has been replaced with a new one,which is king size bed and super comfortable.
    Peaceful and traditional.
  • Very charming welcoming place and people. Perfect to enjoy a typical cretan time and quiet evenings with amazing overview...

  • A surprising place in a tiny village. Friendly people, delicious meals and a warm atmosphere. We feel at home. Close to the city with its amenities but the calm of the countryside and the beauty of the landscape brings us an inner peace. Thank you for your welcome.

  • Just returned from our stay at Zacharias' house. It was a lovely place with a great view with wonderful sunsets. The village was easy to find, but we did drive past the turning into the village and had to turn around. The little roads around the village are very steep and narrow, and I'm glad I wasn't driving a bigger car than our hired Citygo. I would suggest leaving the car just off the main road near the large rubbish bins, then find the house on foot. It's not very far. 100m perhaps. We decided to leave our car there for the rest of our stay. We were met by Zacharias' mam, who was very welcoming and made us a drink and some of her home-made delicacies, which were delicious. Zacharias' family live downstairs and we have upstairs, but you use their kitchen if you do your own cooking. There is a fridge and kettle in one of the bedrooms though. The village is very quiet but everyone was really friendly. It's very close to the archaeological sides of Phaistos, Agia Triada and Gortyn. Also not far from Matala beach. We didn't go to any of the more southern beaches as they are only reachable by rough tracks. Nearby there is the lovely Donkey sanctuary at Agia Marina.

  • The appartment is great, the veranda, the view, the peace, Danai's wonderful meals - everything you need to have a really youful and relaxing time. There are great beaches not too far away and interesting places to visit, so you can very well combine the rural silence with sportive and cultural activities. I wish we could visit this place again.

  • I was at a loss for words once I arrive there. So beautiful it was such a nice quiet place after the hustle and bustle of cities. My one regret is that I did not schedule more time in there before I had to leave for the states. You will not be disappointed. And the drive south is also so beautiful

  • Amazing Apartment with the most beautiful view from the porch. Would 100% book this place again. Also because of wonderful and basicly always available hosts.

    Tom2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Endless Blue is just what it sounds like - you see and hear the ocean from waking up till going to bed! The terrace is phantastic. This house is ideal for anyone loving quiet, peaceful and remote places. Yet you find restaurants, sandy, big Dydikos beach and a shop closeby. It only takes a 15 min. walk to a beautiful stony beach where we were mostly all by ourselves.

  • Lovely, lonely place, right in front of the sea

    Maxi2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • The place is out of the busy area. If you keen on quiet (which we were) you'll love it. You will have to get a transportation (car, motorbike) to get there, but you won't regret it. It is amazing! The place is super clean, the hosts are amazingly nice.

    Gabriella2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • An absolute insider tip away from the hustle and bustle in nature! Everything went perfectly from start to finish and the communication was great (the WiFi did not work, which was fixed the same day)! We'll be back!

    Tonia2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
