Venetian style in a quiet street in Rethymnon

We loved the house, which was very well supplied with everything to make for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Maria was extremely kind and always willing to go the extra mile to help us and make us feel at home.

Fantastic property in the heart of the old town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful -very old with lovely original features and very nicely furnished and well equipped. It was fantastic to be staying right in the beautiful and atmospheric old town. The house is very centrally located - within walking distance to everything in Rethymno with lots of great tavernas close by.

We hired a car so we could see a bit more of Crete and it was easy to park it just a few streets away.

Maria is a wonderful host and could not have been more welcoming. She really went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay which we very much appreciated.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely house and hope to return.

Sophie's House

  • 5 of 5

and the town of Rethymnon were first rate for our 4 days and would have been excellent for a much longer visit. Maria, our hostess, is a lovely person who went the extra mile. Among the dozens of apartments and gites we've stayed in in Europe, mostly France, this ranks right up at the top. Everything imaginable furnished. Bedroom upstairs tougher for some folks but a divan downstairs could be used as a single bed. Town offers congenial walks, tavernas, and very good restaurants in the old town where we stayed. Everyone quite helpful. Fine people. Tough language but easy to learn to say hello, thanks, and you're welcome. Excellent for a Rick Steves type of traveler. Bad for an incurious and imperious sort of American traveler who really prefers to eat at American restaurants and good old American food. (sic)

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved the house!

It is a huge house, clean, tidy, with traditional furniture.

The walls are original, made of stone and the ceiling was wooden.

We sunbathed on the terrace every day and had breakfast there too.

We could cook as well, as we could find all the necessary equipment in the big kitchen.

There was hot water all day long and could have a shower at any time of the day.

We are planning to come back very soon!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We spent unforgettable vacation in Sofia’s house. Sofia’s house is located in the heart of the old town of Rethymno, near plenty of shops, restaurants, markets and also within walking distance to the beaches. The house has been recently renovated, is very charming and has everything to feel as being at home. It is also equipped with WiFi, which was very convenient. And the owner of the house, Maria, created a wonderful atmosphere, welcoming us as family members and helping us for any question! We enjoyed our vacation so much that will surely be back in the future! Dear Maria, thanks again for the great vacation we had! Love from Paris!
