Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Mithi - Sarakina Spiti

Time For You

The house, 'Sarakina-Spiti' named after the gorge that is located 1 km up the road, has been totally renovated in 2011. It is located at the end of the very nice and quiet village Mithi from where you have a lot of hiking possibilities.

Sarakina Spiti is a very comfortable house for 3-4 people, with a living room with a fireplace, a modern open kitchen, a sleeping room with a double bed and a small bathroom with a shower. About 40 square meters. In front of the house is a big terrace with a beautiful view on to the mountains and the sea. The garden has an old olive tree, -palm trees and grapes. It is recommended to hire a car. A ride of about 5 km takes you to Mirtos, a lively small village at the seaside, where you will find taverns, small supermarkets, a bakery, butcher and few small tourist-shops.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay in this property and were genuinely upset to leave. The studio is simply decorated with all the facilities that you need and very comfortable. Air conditioning is available in the bedroom if you need it. The views are fabulous, nestling in the mountains with a view down to the sea. It's perfect for outside living. The garden is a delight and we enjoyed watering it. Plenty of good walking, swimming and sites to visit. The people in Crete were so friendly and we have come back to the UK feeling so rested and re-vitalised.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Diane for your review! I am very happy that you enjoyed the stay. When I went out to Crete after you, people told me about you and your husband. They enjoyed having you in the village very much as well.

wonderful and relaxing holidays

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben in dem langen Urlaub insgesamt 5 Unterkünfte kennenlernen dürfen und ich kann Ihnen mitteilen, dass Ihr Sarakina-Spiti zu einem von zwei Topfavoriten gehört. Das Haus ist wirklich schön, super ausgestattet, von der Lage war es das, was wir für die ersten Tage wollten: Ankommen, Ruhe und Erholung, dennoch ein Strand und (noch) wenig Toursimus in Mirtos. Wir haben die gut ausgestattete Küche sehr genossen, weil wir uns am Anfang des Urlaubs eher selbst versorgt haben.

Wir danken Ihnen für die Überlassung Ihres Hauses und wenn wir wieder einmal in den Osten der Insel wollen, erinnern wir uns gerne an Mithi und an Sie.

Ruhe-Oase in kretischem Bergdorf

  • 4 of 5

Schön gelegenes einfaches Ferienhaus im Bergdorf Mithi nahe Myrthos. Auto empfehlenswert. Die Lage in einem typisch kretischen Dorf macht den Aufenthalt authentisch. Das Haus ist einfach und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Es gibt einen Wohnraum mit einer Art Futonbett für 2 Personen, einem offenen Kamin, einem Bücherregal in offener Verbindung zur Küche. Die Küche lässt keine Wünsche offen. Sehr gute Ausstattung. Im Schlafzimmer gibt es ein Doppelbett und einen begehbaren Kleiderschrank. Das Bad ist mit einer Dusche ausgestattet. Alles war sauber. Eine Klimaanlage gab es zwar, war aber nicht voll funktionsfähig. A/C war allerdings auch nicht in der Anzeige ausgewiesen. Also alles ok. Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin war sehr angenehm und unkompliziert. Sehr schön ist die Terrasse und der kleine Garten, in dem sich mediterranes Pflanzen (auch essbare) aller Art finden. Durch das Dach aus Weinreben gab es trotz Hitze immer genug Schatten. Die Mücken waren vorhanden aber nicht penetrant. Es gibt Moskitonetze im Haus. Auch Terrassenmöbel waren ausreichend vorhanden. Wer Katzen mag, kommt hier voll auf seine Kosten. Füttert man eine, kommen alle. Wir fanden es toll. Hinter dem Haus kann man gleich loswandern (Minoischer Pfad). Die imposante Sarafina-Schlucht ist in 15 Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar und auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert! Mit dem Auto erreicht man vom Haus aus in ca. 15 Minuten den Ort Myrthos, der direkt am Meer liegt. Viele Tavernen sorgen für ein reichhaltiges Angebot. Auch kleine schmale Badestrände gibt es hier. Wir können das Haus jedem empfehlen, der Ruhe sucht, die typische schlichte kretische Atmosphäre sucht, die Natur liebt und dem eine mindestens 15-minütige Autofahrt zum nächsten Strand nichts ausmacht. Die kulturellen Highlights von Ostkreta sind von hier übrigens gut zu erreichen.

It can be more better ...

  • 3 of 5

The house is cute, the garden is very nice; I’ve watered the plants every day as asked. The location of Mithi is good, we’ve enjoyed Saracina Canyon and Mirtos’s beach. Definitely, we love Crete and Cretan people.

However, the big problem of the house is the missing clim, especially in this summer time : we could’n sleep well in the bedroom neither in the living room even with the fan and the windows opened; inside the house, the temperature at every nights was almost 33°C ; we have tried to sleep outside but the deckchairs are not very comfortables and mosquitos were ready to bite us ! It’s a shame that this problem ruins a bit our stay.

Another point, not as important as the missing clim but can be improved, is no washing machine : I think people can hardly stay over 1 week without cleaning their stuff.

Owner's Response: Dear Bao-Khoi, thank you very much for your review. I am pleased that you liked the house and the surounding. Unfortunately, you were there during an extreme heat period, but one has to consider that going to Crete in July and August it is always very hot. However, I will get the A/C working by the next season. Please bear in mind that I am not offering A/C nor washing machine in the description.

Excellente location pour amoureux de la nature

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Mithi dans le logis de Helga, du 12 au 20 Juin 2014.

La maison est simple mais bien agencée, literie de bonne qualité, la cuisine a tout le matériel nécessaire, et neuf. Nous n'avons pas testé la clim.

En fait, nous avons surtout été dîner au bistrot du village, où Georgia prépare des petits plats sur mesure, dans une ambiance chaleureuse et conviviale.

La maison est à la fin du village, dans un quartier très calme (seul bruit, les cigales) avec vue sur la mer (Myrtos) et montagnes environnantes.

Petite salle de bains très propre, plomberie en très bon état.

Le village est le point de départ de randonnées (Minoean path). Mithi est très bien situé pour une visite complète de l'est de la Crête (Zakros 1h15, Sitia 45mn, aéroport d'Heraklion 1h20).

A conseiller aux amoureux de nature et de tranquillité. Nous reviendrons sans aucun doute chez Helga...
