A great place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

Crete is a lovely place to go on holiday. It is a beautiful island with friendly people, warm sunny weather and plenty to see and do. There is an easy pace of life which also makes it enjoyable to do not very much at all. There are lots of places to eat out and the Cretans are very welcoming to visitors.

We stayed 2 weeks in this lovely house and had a fantastic time. The Galanakis family went out of their way to provide us with everything we could have wanted. We received information about the house and car well in advance. Yiannis and his son kindly met us at Heraklion airport, and had pre-arranged our car hire so that there was no waiting around. We followed him to the house where there was raki and a delicious meal waiting, and also enough food in the fridge to keep us going over the weekend.

The view of the mountains and village on the neighbouring hill were spectacular from the bedroom and balcony the next morning. The house is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped, with a beautiful garden. The pool is bigger than appears in the photographs and we used it well, as the temperature was 29-42 degrees while we were there. Despite the heat we were able to keep comfortable as there is plenty of shade in the garden throughout the day and the air conditioning is very effective - we mainly used it only at night.

The situation on the edge of the village means that the house and garden are very private, but the mini market, local pharmacy and main road are only a short drive (1km) away, and there are larger supermarkets not too far away in Chania, which is just over 30 minutes away. We visited several of the places and tavernas recommended by Yiannis but spent much of the time enjoying the pool and garden. It was a real luxury having the house cleaned twice a week and we looked forward to the excellent meals and other tasty gifts given to us by Hariklia, who is a fantastic cook.

We would strongly recommend this as a good place to go on holiday, and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here. Thank you to the family for making it such an easy place to get away from it all.

Stunning scenery & gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here six nights, and it was easily our favorite part of our two-week honeymoon in Crete! Yiannis and Eva were readily available before our arrival, answered all our questions promptly and set up a rental car to be brought to the house for us to use for the rest of our trip. When our plans changed due to weather, they fixed up the house a day early and let us stay an extra night at a discounted rate. There was an incredible home-cooked dinner waiting for us when we arrived, as well as olive oil, wine and raki that our hosts made. It was such a warm welcome after several days of backpacking across Hania!

The house itself was beautiful and very clean, and the views from the upstairs patio were STUNNING. I found myself out there every morning and evening watching the clouds roll over the mountains that wrap around half the horizon. Minus a few houses and the small town on the hillside, the cottage feels very remote, although it's easily accessible off the E75- the main highway that cuts across Crete. Just down the street, there's a nice little grocery shop that sells the local cheeses (graviera and myzithra).

My husband and I stayed in a couple of the days because it was so entirely relaxing there, but it was also very easy to go on day trips around the area. The Samaria Gorge doesn't open til May- we were a week too early- so we drove an hour south to Imbros Gorge, which was a 3-4 hour hike. Frangokastello is right next to Komitades at the south end of the gorge, so we had a nice evening on the beach next to the old fortress there. We also made a day trip to Elafonissi- the beach everyone said was the most wondrous in all of Crete. It was about a two-hour drive, and the scenery along the way was worth the switchbacks down the mountain sides. We stopped in a small fishing town, Sfanari, on the way back and enjoyed a delicious fresh seafood dinner on a private beach.

In short, the the cottage is located very centrally if your goal is to explore the Hania region (which ended up being our favorite part of Crete!). The area offers white/pink beaches, snow-tipped mountains, lush gorges and rolling fields of olive trees- all within a two-hour drive. I highly recommend this home for an extended stay. We will most certainly come back here when our paths lead us back to Crete. Thank you Yiannis and Eva!

Comfortable villa with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening. What a surprise it was, to be welcomed by our hosts with a superb hot meal. The frigo was also filled with all we needed for breakfast the next morning.

The villa was perfecly equiped.

A special mention for the superb view on the mountains.

All the ingredients for a perfect holiday !!

Big house with garden and nice landscape view

  • 5 of 5

The traditional loannis cottage is a great place to enjoy vacations in Crete.

It’s a good starting point for journeys through the West of Crete as it is only some minutes to the main road E75/90 through Crete. You can than easily take the specific road to the West, to the South, to Samaria…. The closest beach Kalyves is about 10 min away and a nice one without crowds of tourists (as we have experienced in October).

We have even received several traditional dinner dishes prepared by the mother of Ioannis. And the fridge contained already food for us, we even found the tasty raki with honey. Exceptional service and direct contact!

The flat is clean and is being cleaned about every 4 days, you also get fresh towels. The pictures show the reality you will find in the flat.

We can really recommend the house for your stay in Crete!

Peace and relax in a perfect house

  • 5 of 5

We have been looked after for every aspect of the stay by Ioannis family.

We rent a car for all 6 of us and it performs perfectly.

Wonderful beaches are reachable by car, we spent every day in a different beach all over our 15 days of stay.

When we were back in the evening we felt as at our home by the beginning: we got always meals sitting in the cottage's garden in front of an amazing mountain landscape, hearing real Greek village sounds as background.

Every device in the house is the last model, very modern and well performing. Wi-Fi connection is perfect. Mum of Ioannis and his brother is the stone of the family, she guarantee a perfect cleaning standard, we loved her meals prepared with Greek recipe.

We enjoyed thoroughly these 2 weeks bringing home a fruitful sense of peace.

Thanks all of you.

Well modernised, spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The welcome and attention was fantastic with guidance from the airport to the arrival to meet the family . A wonderfully spacious house in a traditional village. The week was wonderful with the swimming pool in a delightful well kept garden. Thank you for your great generosity and gifts.
