The villa is located on a hillside, overlooking the sea. It boasts fantastic sweeping views over unspoilt countryside filled with olive groves down to the sparking azure sea. It offers a fantastic degree of privacy, and there are very few signs of habitation as far as the eye can see. However as the the bustling harbour of Makrigialos is only 3 kms away, you have privacy without sacrificing convenience. With the car you can easily reach the numerous tavernas, shops and unspoilt beaches throughout your holiday stay.

The villa offers particularly spacious accommodation with a total of 4 bedrooms (3doubles-1single) arranged over two floors and two lovely terraces, one on the ground floor at the front of the house and the other on the first floor leading off one of the bedrooms. The traditional feel of the house, which strikes you immediately upon swing the thick stone-walled exterior as you approach along the rough track leading to the house, is echoed in the interiors which have been furnished with family heirlooms and antiques. The bedrooms have lovely old iron bedsteads with decorative metalwork and modern floors and shutters.The very special living area boasts an open fireplace and to one side is a large well equipped kitchen area with a full oven and fridge. All the bedrooms on the first floor have attractive sloping ceilings,and from the single bedroom there is access to a large terrace at the front of the house which is a perfect spot to sit in the quiet of the late evening and watch for shooting stars.Outside is the pool area with the BBQ, equipped with large table and chairs and also a garden.

Beautiful remote villa, surrounded by olive gardens, with stunning views over the sea and mountains

  • 5 of 5

Loved this tastefully designed really period rural villa, set in a quiet spot with no neighbours around and a fantastic sandy clean beach, we had a lovely relaxing holiday. The house and the pool was clean, water changed easily. It was plenty of room for a big family with children both inside and outside. The outside space was so lovely and we ate and spent most of our time there outside as there is a nice and big grill space with a large dining table and stunning views. I loved this holiday and will definitely be going back!

The perfect house for a family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Stone Villa at the end of July this year. We are a family of eight, with ages ranging from 2 to 76, and the house was perfect for us. A true family holiday house set amongst the olive groves with amazing views of the mountains and the coast.

On arrival Irini and George gave us a warm welcome and were hugely helpful with local information on local tavernas, beaches and where to shop. We loved the remoteness of the house, the pool and the shady BBQ area. The house is beautifully furnished with basic but adequate kitchen facilities, spotlessly clean and very comfortable beds.

The Stone House is remote, up a very long , bumpy track, yet only 3km from the very nice small friendly town of Makrigialos with its good selection of beachside Tavernas - the perfect place for a family lunch and an afternoon on the sandy beach.

On arrival the younger members of the family asked if there was air conditioning. I have to say, that when booking this holiday, it hadn't crossed my mind to ask. There isn't air conditioning, and as the house is on the coast and sometimes quite windy, normally probably not necessary, and although we had fans in the bedrooms, think small air conditioning units for the upstairs bedrooms could be useful when the temperatures rise in high summer.

Thank you to a Irini and George for letting us stay in your much loved family home - we hope to return in the not too distant future.

A house in the middle of nature

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated a few minutes' walk or drive from beautiful beaches with calm transparent water - a pleasure for swimming. The house is a ranch house it is located in the middle of an olive plant. Sitting outside by the pool, we enjoyed beautiful view and magical atmosphere. The house itself is furnished with good taste. It is not a luxury house but we found the kitchen and bedrooms to be cozy and comfortable. Dispensable goods (e.g. toilet paper) were minimal. The owners were very hospitable and friendly. Overall, this is the "un-touristic Crete" the feeling is like a local and not like a tourist, the area is wild, and secluded perfect for those who love nature, quietness, and privacy. We enjoyed and recommend.

Beautiful House, quiet area, very friendly owners!

  • 5 of 5

The House is located in a perfect place between mountain and sea! Ideal for those who need to relax! It was very clean and tidy and i loved the decoration. George and Rena where very friendly and kind and helped us a lot to discover south-east Crete! We'd certainly visit you again in the future...

Beautiful and Peaceful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at Irini and George's Place!

First of all, the location is amazing. The close-by beaches are pristine: transparent water, warm water, some have caves you can dive into, and most important some of the beaches are nearly deserted.

The landscapes are beautiful: Very rocky with low vegetation on a beautiful mountainous background.

The house is surrounded by olive trees and located on the hill from where you can see the see and the mountains.

The house is old and beautiful made of rocks and wood. The perfect place for people looking for some quiet and relaxing holidays.

The pool/backyard/bbq setting is wonderful and doesn't make you want to have dinner anywhere else. It's extremely pretty and convinient.

The inside of the house is simple. The furnitures and amenities are quite rustic.

And the hosts are lovely and very helpful.
