Glorious, authentic Cretan experience!

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled to Crete for many years now, and out of all the places i have stayed Horiatiko Spiti is by far the best. Here you can enjoy a secluded and comfortable location only a one minute walk from the lovely town square of Sivas. The facilities are top notch with a cozy interior design, and the colorful and lush garden is a wonderful place to relax in the sun or enjoy a cold glass of Retzina in evening. However, the number one perk of this guest house is interacting with the lovely couple who run the place. Maria and Michalis will provide you with all the service you need, and they are an absolute joy to spend time with. Both natives of Crete, they will provide you with all the information and knowledge you need for getting the most out of your holiday.

If you wish to experience Crete in a comfortable, traditional fashion, Horiatiko Spiti is the place for you!

I will always come back to Horiatiko Spiti

  • 5 of 5

"I have traveled in Creta for many years and stayed in many nice places, but Horiatiko Spiti in the beautiful village Sivas is by far my most favorite place. I have come back here every year for the last 10years.

The hosts Maria and Michalis greets every guest with warm friendliness that makes you feel welcome and at home. To wake up to the sounds of the village and step out in their beautiful garden in the morning is for me the best way to start my days in Crete. The studios and apartment are very comfortable and very clean - you can enjoy the garden with orange trees, herbs and beautiful flowers. All studios have private sitting area.

Sivas is in a perfect area to enjoy several beautiful beaches,hiking in the mountains and explore breathtaking gorges.

I always stay in the large apartment with my family it also have its own private terrace with a beautiful view of the mountains and village.

I will always come back to Horiatico Spiti

Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Mein 6. Aufenthalt bei Maria & Michaelis - und keineswegs der letzte. Egal welches der angenehm schlicht und komfortablen Studios/Appartments man bucht: die Gastfreundschaft in Horiatiko Spiti ist und bleibt so freundlich wie professionell, so herzlich wie wohltuend. Ort, Lage, Ausstattung, Umgebung - top.

Eine herrliche Zeit

  • 5 of 5

Als absolute Kretafans darf seit mehreren Jahren ein Aufenthalt bei Maria und Michalis auf keinen Fall fehlen!

Auch in diesem Jahr verbrachten wir in diesem wunderschönen, sehr geräumigen, bestens ausgestatteten Appartment eine herrliche Zeit!

Schon beim Frühstück im wundervoll begrünten Innenhof wünscht man sich die Uhr würde etwas langsamer ticken.

Unübertroffen ist die herzliche , unaufdringliche Gastfreundschaft von Maria und Michalis , die sich liebevoll um ihre Gäste kümmern !

Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen😊.

The apartment is located on a quiet side street of the traditional village of Sivas in the south of Crete. On the large village square, you can in the shade of a tree serves traditional dishes, while the children have fun in the adjacent playground. Here also kafeneions, a ceramics workshop, minimarkets and other small shops find. The surrounding area of ​​Sivas offers various known archaeological sites like Phaistos and Gortina, you can find canyons to wander through and it's worth a visit to the nearby monastery as well as the museum in Vori. The 2km long sandy beach Komos, the coves of Agios Farangos, Marzalos and Vathi with its crystal clear waters invite you to swim, is just like a walk through the Rouvasschlucht with the unique forest and its resources give you an impression of the original Cretan life.
