Beautiful and relaxed holiday in Crete. Loved it!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our time in Studio Sophia. We hired a car in Heraklion and drove the hour and a half to Sfaka. It was beautiful and peaceful.
Sfaka is a small village with a shop that's open morning and night - the lady sells everything - including fresh bread.

Terry and Danny were extremely helpful from the get go. Always quick to answer emails and willing to chat on the phone if any point needed to be clarified.
Their knowledge of the island was priceless. From the best place to snorkel to the best restaurant. They never put us wrong.

Parking was never a problem.

The kitchen was fully stock with kitchen ware. From big pots, toaster, microwave, jug to French press - they have it all.

They also have a great library and a few board games.

Sitting out on the massive deck looking out at the hills with a beer after a full days fun equals heaven.

I would highly recommend Studio Sophia to anyone heading to Crete.
And once again I can't praise Terry and Danny for their hospitality - they have the perfect equilibrium of not being intrusive and letting you get on with relaxing and being there if you need to ask them their advice on the best beach that's close by. They even brought us fresh grapes in the morning.

Chilled out in Sfaka

  • 5 out of 5
Just spent 10 lovely days in the beautiful sunshine. The studio was everything we expected and more. We made great use of the sun terrace, which had ample sun bathing space and shade provided by the pergalo and the lovely plants. The studio was well stocked with all the necessay utensils, facilities etc. we needed for our stay. There is plenty to do and see within in the nearby area, however a car is definately recommended. Our favourite beach was Istron bay with beautiful clear water and sand. Mochlos had numerous tavernas overlooking the bay, offering reasonable priced and delicious local food. Shopping good in Ierapetra and Siteia by evening when cooler. Spinalonga island well worth a visit. The owners very friendly and on hand if needed. Studio is situated in a quiet lane within the rural village, locals were very welcoming. Would definately recommend a stay here if you are looking for a relaxing break.

Studio Apartment in Safka

  • 5 out of 5
A comfortable studio apartment with a lovely terrace and wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. The couple who own the apartment were very friendly and helpful. We very much enjoyed our stay there. The beach we liked best was Istron, which was half an hours' drive away. Across the road from the beach there was a very good taveran called Kavos.

Simply beautiful

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for our honeymoon last year, and have to say that it exceeded all of our expectations. The village of Sfaka was a true delight, in particular for those wishing to have some peace and quiet, with amazing views. It also served as an excellent base to explore beautiful eastern Crete from.

There were plenty of quiet and secluded beaches, less than a 20 minute drive away, Tholos and Mochlos being amongst our favourites.

The owners were extremely helfpul, making us feel very at home indeed.

We really couldn't recommend it more.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review! So glad that you enoyed your stay with us and that you were pleased with the studio and the surrounding area.We think is important when choosing a holiday destination to give an accurate picture of what our guests can expect if they stay here on the unspoilt North East coast of Crete. As it was your honeymoon, it is nice to know that you thought it was extra special. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

Fantastic place to stay!! :-)

  • 5 out of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Sophia Studios in June 2011. The studio is lovely, clean and comfortablev and has everything you need for a great self catering holiday. The roof terrace is wonderful and has stunning mountain views. The area of Sfaka is very peaceful and relaxing and the owners of the studio are very welcoming and friendly. I would definately go there again in the future! Thank you for a great holiday!! :-)

Un séjour très agréable!

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans le studio de Terry et Danny. Le studio est lumineux, spacieux et très bien équipé surtout la cuisine, la douche est grande également. Le studio est très bien entretenu, tout à l’air neuf !

La grande terrasse est très agréable, jolie vue sur les montagnes, idéal pour les repas.

Parfait point de départ pour explorer la côte, à l’est comme à l’ouest. Le village de Mochlos en contrebas est très sympathique, petite plage tranquille et restaurants traditionnels dans une ambiance détendue et familiale, loin de la foule et des complexes « all-inclusive » bruyants.

Terry et Danny sont très accueillants et veillent à votre confort (changement des draps et serviettes en milieu de semaine, café/thé à l’accueil, huile d’olive maison, etc.).

Nous recommandons vivement cette location

Sfaka is a lovely rural working mountain village situated on the North East coast of Crete away from mass tourism.

There are two kafenions, a taverna and a corner shop within a short walking distance from the studio.

Mochlos, a pretty fishing village, with an early Minoan excavation is a ten minute drive away where there are several good tavernas and archaeological sights to be found. Also excellent for snorkelling, fishing and water sports. Sandy beaches can be found at Istron, Amoudara,Tholos and Sitia which has a Blue Flag.

From the studio there are beautiful mountain walks where the smell of wild herbs will accompany you. Whilst walking you can often see vultures,eagles,falcons and migratory birds from Africa. From the terrace at night there is excellent star gazing as there are no town lights.

The studio is central to the main shopping towns of Agios Nikoloas, Sitia and Irepetra which are all about a 30 minute drive away. There are banks,hospitals and night life, etc..
