Very quaint comfortable house ideally situated for old town in Rethynmon
We have recently returned from a lovely week staying in Sophia’s house. Perfect for 2 couples & 5 mins to the restaurants of the old town. 10-15 minutes walk to the beach. Maria couldn’t have been more hospitable, helpful & generous. We were greeted with an array of food including breakfast foods, fruit & salad, a whole cooked chicken as well as a copious supply of Raki. Would highly recommend if you want to be in the centre of Rethynmon.
Delightful house in wonderful location
We have just returned from a week in Rethymno staying in Maria's lovely house. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. It is full of charm and character, well equipped and very clean and comfortable. The location is fantastic, just a few minutes walk to a wide variety of bars, restaurants, shops and the harbour. Despite such a convenient location, it is a quiet place to stay. Maria is a wonderful, kind, thoughtful and welcoming host. She replied quickly to any queries beforehand. She filled the fridge with milk, bread, tomatoes, ham, cheese, grapes as well as raki and limoncello and as we arrived late, had also ordered a pizza for us to make sure that we had something to eat. She kept in touch throughout our stay and made sure that she came to say goodbye on our last day. We had a wonderful holiday and would thoroughly recommend this property. We hope to come back.
Beautiful historic house in heart of Rethymno
All as advertised - host was very helpful - great location - although a bit of a walk to sea (as it was hot)
A perfect retreat in the heart of Crete
We have had a wonderful stay in Crete and based ourselves in Rethymnon. The house was perfectly placed in the centre of the old Venetian town. This ensured there was easy walking access to all the main areas of interest: Fortress; old town; parks; harbour; shopping; cafes and tavernas. We hired a car and could park very close by- this enabled us to explore the area further and we enjoyed beaches, coves, hillside monastery, villages, Knossos. The house itself has all amenities needed to be self sustained if you wish: kitchen and cooking/dining facilities; laundry; comfortable bedrooms with all linen included; bathrooms with towels; sun patio with furniture; TV and wifi etc etc. The pictures don't reflect the size of the property which is far more spacious than it appears. The best aspect of all is Maria the owner, she is the epitome of Cretan hospitality and genuinely wishes to ensure you have all that you need to feel comfortable and at home. As other reviews have stated there was an evening meal waiting on our arrival with all the basics stocked in the fridge to get us going- milk, bread, eggs, meat/cheese, butter. Even fresh figs and later in the week a surprise homemade cake- this was beyond all expectation. Maria is a warm and kind person and I feel a friend of the family by the end of our stay. She has another smaller property on the southern side of Crete that also looks great and I hope will be as successful for her as this one. So, go ahead and book now.....you will not be disappointed!
Character House in the old town of Rethymno
Maria the owner was fantastic. She was the most hospitable host we have ever had and we have rented in England and other places in the world. The fridge was full, she made us a cake, she photocopied things for us, we had her family olive oil and when we stupidly struggled to use the key she came over immediately to help us out. A lovely woman who was helpful throughout.
The cottage was great, it was well equipped and spacious with a patio and large veranda for eating on or sunbathing on. It is in the old part of town so you feel you are living there and not just a tourist. It was dead centre for everything. Only 2 mins to the centre of town, 5 to the harbour and 15 min walk to the beach. For those who need it there is wifi and in the bedrooms air con which was bliss as in July/August when we stayed it was hot.
Rethymno is a lovely town, pretty to walk about in with many alleyways to explore. The Greek people were helpful and always polite.
We had a great holiday with Maria and thoroughly recommend a stay at Sofia's.
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.
Lovely 2 bedroom traditional house in the old town of Rethymnon that can sleep up to 5 or 6 people
Sofia’s house is a two-level venetian building (125 square meters) of traditional architecture, built in the 1600s. It was renovated with great inspiration and respect, preserving its original look. The stone walls and the wooden ceilings were kept as they originally were, in order to offer you the real sensation of living in a traditional Cretan style home.
The whole house consists of 2 bedrooms, (the first with a double bed and the second with 2 single beds), 1 bathroom with shower, 1 WC, a fully equipped kitchen and a sitting room with a sofa-bed. It can sleep up to 5 or 6 persons. The house has a big veranda and a small balcony on the first floor, a main kitchen area and a private yard on the ground level.
It offers all kinds of facilities, a/c, satellite TV, 2 TV sets, DVD player, fully equipped kitchen, washing-machine, iron, iron board, hair dryer etc. We can provide a full sized cot at no charge upon request. Most of the house’s furniture is traditional. Very tastefully decorated and fully equipped for your holiday needs, suitable for couples or families, with or without children. A real 'Home for Home feel!!!
The house is in a convenient location, in the heart of the old town of Rethymnon, with easy access to the main sandy beach of Rethymnon, as well as to many facilities. The local high street is just a 3 min walk, with easy access to many restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets and banks. The bus station is only a 5 min walk away.
We, the owners, are always available and can help with car hire bookings, advice on places to go and see, beaches to find and restaurants to visit. Our goal is to make each and everyone of you feel like 'home' and to make your stay a wonderful unique memory!
