About Owner/Manager

I'm 44 years old and married with Simon Coupe. We have 3 children and we live in the Netherlands.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2004

Why Owner/Manager chose Koutsounari

We love Crete and the town Agios Ioannis because of the peacefulness. The view from the terrace is magnificent. The south east of Crete is not so touristy as the North of Crete and there is a lot to explore. It is also known as the the most southern area of Europe.

What makes this house unique

Terrace, view, not many tourists around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you want to stay in a traditional Cretan property far from the madding crowd then I would highly recommend this place. The village of Agios Ioannis is set up in the hills a 15 minute drive from the coast. The village itself is a fascinating mix of very old traditional properties (some unoccupied) and tastefully restored holiday homes and it's well worth a wander round the narrow streets for a journey back in time. There is a taverna serving decent food and a music bar with fabulous views and buckets of character at the top end of the village. This setting was perfect for us as we wanted an authentic Cretan experience with space to relax but if you want a change of scene it's only a short drive down to the coast or to Irepetra where you'll find plenty of lively bars and restaurants.



The house itself is tastefully restored and provides everything you would need with domestic appliances, aircon to the master bedroom plus the most fantastic view over the hills down to the coast from the top terrace. Parking outside the property is not possible but it is only a couple of minutes walk up a steepish hill from where you can park.



This was our first visit to Crete and we liked the Island very much. We plan to go back and would stay here again. It is very much a house you would use as a base for exploring the Island or driving to one of the many fantastic beaches there are close by.

Alles bestens!

  • 5 of 5

Alles bestens! Das Haus war super, sehr nett und gemütlich.

Das war genau, was ich gesucht habe – keine Touristen nur ruhe, Natur und einen herrlichen Blick. Eine Taverne, die 1 Minute Fußweg vom Haus entfernt ist, bietet sehr leckeres griechisches Essen. Da es kein Touristenrestaurant ist, sind die Preise auch sehr gut. Vorspeise 2-3 Euro, Hauptgericht 4-8 Euro.

Wenn Sie ein Auto nicht mieten wollen, müssen Sie dieses Anwesen vergessen (Zum Dorf fährt man ca. 15 Minuten). Es gibt nicht so viel Bewohner im Dorf und einige Häuser sind schon lang verlassen und stehen Abbruchreif. Viele andere werden als Ferienhäuser benutzt, deswegen standen die im September auch leer. Es ist Kein Minus für mich eigentlich, für jemand ist aber vielleicht schon.

Es gab keine Mücken, aber viele Katzen, die keine Ruhe beim Frühstücken auf dem Balkon gaben. Lösung – Katzen Konserven=)

Danke für alles und viele Grüße

Ilja und Anna.
