About Owner/Manager

I'm 44 years old and married with Simon Coupe. We have 3 children and we live in the Netherlands.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2004

Why Owner/Manager chose Lassithi

We love Crete and the town Agios Ioannis because of the peacefulness. The view from the terrace is magnificent. The south east of Crete is not so touristy as the North of Crete and there is a lot to explore. It is also known as the the most southern area of Europe.

What makes this house unique

Terrace, view, not many tourists around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you want to stay in a traditional Cretan property far from the madding crowd then I would highly recommend this place. The village of Agios Ioannis is set up in the hills a 15 minute drive from the coast. The village itself is a fascinating mix of very old traditional properties (some unoccupied) and tastefully restored holiday homes and it's well worth a wander round the narrow streets for a journey back in time. There is a taverna serving decent food and a music bar with fabulous views and buckets of character at the top end of the village. This setting was perfect for us as we wanted an authentic Cretan experience with space to relax but if you want a change of scene it's only a short drive down to the coast or to Irepetra where you'll find plenty of lively bars and restaurants.



The house itself is tastefully restored and provides everything you would need with domestic appliances, aircon to the master bedroom plus the most fantastic view over the hills down to the coast from the top terrace. Parking outside the property is not possible but it is only a couple of minutes walk up a steepish hill from where you can park.



This was our first visit to Crete and we liked the Island very much. We plan to go back and would stay here again. It is very much a house you would use as a base for exploring the Island or driving to one of the many fantastic beaches there are close by.

abseits des üblichen Tourismus

  • 5 of 5

Das Dorf ist halb verfallen aber das Haus ist liebevoll hergerichtet, mit allem Notwendigen ausgestattet und eine gute Basis für Touren in die Berge.

Abends kann man gemütlich am brennenden Kamin sitzen oder von der Terrasse aufs Meer schauen, wenn man nicht grade bei Dimitri oder Niko zum Abendessen ist. Strom und Wasser werden erfreulicherweise getrennt abgerechnet.

Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt.

ABSOLUT EMPFEHLENSWERT! Vielen Dank Simon & Bettina Coupe und natürlich Sofia

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sauber und absolut komfortabel. Die verschwitzte Wäsche ist schnell gewaschen, dank Waschmaschine/Trockner, ein riesiger Kühlschrank kühlt Feta, Ouzo und Co., sehr viele Handtücher und Bettzeug sorgen dafür, dass der Koffer leicht bei der Anreise bleiben kann und vollgepackt für die Abreise ;)

In dem Haus ist an alles gedacht worden. Es ist genauso gemütlich, wie auf den Fotos abgebildet - auf der Terrasse hat man einen super Blick ins Tal!

Die Lage ist schön, Das Dörfchen hat seinen eigenen Charme, das "fifty-five" sollte man UNBEDINGT besuchen.

Der Kontakt zur Hausherrin und zu Sofia, mit der man gerne einen Abend hätte verbringen wollen lief ausgezeichnet. Wir wurden abgeholt, überall eingewiesen und sehr freundlich beraten.

ABSOLUT EMPFEHLENSWERT!

sehr schönes liebevoll hergerichtetes Ferienhaus in fast verlassenem Bergdorf

  • 3 of 5

Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit dem Ferienhaus, sehr schön hergerichtet und schöne Blicke ins Tal möglich. Leider war es sehr kalt während unseres Aufenthalts und wir konnten die Terasse kaum nutzen. Zum Glück gibt es einen Kamin, den wir ausgiebig nutzten.

Erholsamer Urlaub !

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren für 11 Nächte in dem Ferienhaus und haben es sehr genossen. Die Lage war für uns ideal, da wir zum Abschalten dieses Haus gewählt hatten - weg von Touristenhochburgen etc. . Sofia (die Vermieterin) hatte sehr viele nützliche Tipps für Strände, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten usw. für uns. Die Ausstattung des Hauses (Waschmaschine, Spülmaschine, Haushaltsgeräte) ist komplett und sehr gut. Terassen (2 Stück) erlauben es einem je nach Sonnenstand, Schatten zu suchen. In 10-15 Minuten ist man mit dem Auto am nächsten Strand/Ort und kann dort chillen oder Einkaufen. Wir denken gerne an unsere Tage dort zurück! Vor Ort gibt es eine absolut zu empfehlende Taverne, wo es echt lecker Essen gibt, ebenso die Bar "55".

Vielleicht auf bald!

Tina und Holger

Herrlicher Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Nachdem wir unseren ersten "Schock" überwunden hatten, dass wir in einem überwiegend verlassenen Dorf mit geschätzt 70 % Ruinen eingemietet waren, haben wir dann doch schnell das filigrane Leben entdeckt, zu schätzen gelernt und genossen. Das Häusschen bot alles, was wir benötigten und hatte mit seinen 2 Schlafzimmern, Wohnzimmer, Küche und Bad und 4 kleinen Terassen auch einen gewissen Luxus zu bieten. Die Taverne öffnete bald und Kristina hat uns immer wieder mit leckerer kretischer Küche verwöhnt. Am Wochenende war auch der Club 55 auf, leider diesmal ohne Livemusik. Wir haben nette Gäste und "Einheimische" kennen gelernt und auch die Dorfkatzen und Hunde begrüßten uns freundlich. Am Abend waren sogar die Gässchen beleuchtet.

Genial war es, dass uns Sofia eine Art hauseigenen Reiseführer gab, dem wir mit großem Vergnügen folgten: Schluchten, idyllische Bergdörfer, Strände, minoische Ausgrabungsstätten, Tropfsteinhöhlen und auch einen uralten 2000jährigen Olvenbaum haben wir besucht. Herzlichen Dank noch einmal dafür!

Für uns (2 Erwachsene) ein rundum gelungener Urlaub. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
