Enjoy tradition & modernity in this lovely house

  • 5 of 5

The description of Agapi holiday house was very accurate: comfortable, spacious, modern renovation maintaining traditional architecture, mild climate, beautiful location. The house is lovely and very peaceful. We ate breakfast on the balcony every morning saying: What a life, what a life! The town of Sivas is a good combination of lively and friendly residents, some tourists and has a good selection of tavernas. It's a great base for nearby hikes, beaches, and archeological sites at Phaestos and Agias Triada. We went in late October and the water was perfect for swimming. Agapi and Manolis were very friendly, knowledgeable, flexible and helpful. There was a whole selection of organic welcome gifts (olive oil, balsamic vinegar, red and white wine vinegar, capers) produced by the hosts. Such hospitality! We will definitely stay here again. Thank you again, Agapi and Manolis.

Perfect Agapi Holiday House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Agapi Holiday House was perfect! We were overwhelmed by the hospitality of Agapi and Manolis. The house and location were perfect for our amazing stay in Crete. We wished we had more time for our stay and hope to come back. The village of Sivas was so beautiful. Agapi and Manolis gave us wonderful recommendations on things to do and see in the area. I would highly recommend this house and area for an amazing experience in Crete. Thank you so much Agapi and Manolis for everything!

ländliche Idylle

  • 5 of 5

Villa Agapi ist ein sehr gut ausgestattetes, erst vor ein paar Jahren komplett renoviertes schönes altes Häuschen im ruhigen Ort Sivas. Vor dem Haus befindet sich ein idyllischer Garten mit Zitronenbäumen und allerhand Kräutern. Eine überdachte Holzterrasse mit bequemen Sitzmöbeln lädt zum Entspannen und zum Essen im Freien ein. Hinter dem Haus, durchs Schlafzimmer zu erreichen, liegt eine weitere Terrasse mit Sitzgelegenheiten und schönen Pflanzen. Die dort abgestellten Fahrräder darf man benützen.

Besonders gut hat uns gefallen, dass im Haus vorwiegend Naturmaterialien verwendet wurden (Holz, Leinen, Baumwolle, Stein, ...). Sämtliche im Haus verfügbare Reinigungsmittel (Spülmittel, Waschmittel, Duschgel, Shampoo, ...) sind biologisch, was uns ebenfalls sehr gefallen hat.

Manolis und Agapi, die Hausbesitzer, sind sehr liebe, herzliche und engagierte Menschen, wir haben uns sofort willkommen gefühlt und der Kontakt zu den beiden klappte hervorragend. Als Willkommensgeschenk bekamen wir Wein, Raki, Oliven, Kapern, Marmelade und noch einiges mehr, alles in Bio-Qualität und aus eigener Erzeugung, die Sachen schmeckten hervorragend.

Einmal pro Woche kamen Manolis und Agapi nach vorheriger Terminabsprache mit uns, um das Haus zu reinigen und die Wäsche zu wechseln, was sehr angenehm war, das kannten wir aus unseren bisherigen Selbstversorgungs-Urlauben in Ferienhäusern nicht.

Als der Abfluss im Bad einmal verstopft war, genügte eine Mail und Manolis war am nächsten Tag zur Stelle und behob den Schaden umgehend.

Sehr entzückend ist auch die Nachbarin Maria, eine ältere Dame, die immer mal wieder auf ein Pläuschchen bei und stehen blieb (sie sprach nur Griechisch, aber mit Händen und Füßen gelang es, uns zu verständigen).

Auch eine Katzenfamilie besuchte uns, sehr zur Freunde unseres kleinen Sohnes, beinahe jeden Tag.

Das Haus ist kindgerecht ausgestattet, Babybett, Kinderhochstuhl und Kindergeschirr wurden uns von den Vermietern zur Verfügung gestellt.

Als ich Manolis vor unserer Anreise via Mail fragte, ob er wüsste, wo man auf Kreta Hafermilch kaufen könnte, scheute er keine Mühen, extra nach Moires in den Supermarkt zu fahren (er wohnt nahe Heraklion!) und mir Informationen bezüglich Verfügbarkeit und Preis diverser Milchsorten zu schicken.

Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und empfehlen Villa Agapi aufs Allerwärmste!
