Situated in the heart of the beautiful traditional village of Sivas, on the southern coast of Crete, Mikon comprises of a 2 bedroom apartment with an adjoining studio apartment, located just off the main village square. Dating from the early 1900s and originally a family home, with farm buildings, the structure was in ruin until the current owners undertook an extensive renovation of the buildings. Mikon offers a blend of traditional Cretan charm and modern luxury with a private, shaded and quiet courtyard. Ideal for families or a group of friends who wish to stay together but also have some personal space and privacy. Mikon Apartment is also fully wheelchair accessible. The apartment can accommodate up to 6 guests. Mikon Studio can accommodate another 4 guests. The apartment and the studio can be rented as one family unit or they can be rented separately. Please see the separate listing for Mikon Studio or send me a message with your requirements and I will quickly respond with a quote to suit your needs.

There is a large and comfortable sofa bed in the open plan living area. There is a spacious bathrooms with two walk-in showers. The bathroom is wheelchair accessible.

We believe that it is the little things that will make your stay at Mikon so memorable. Tastefully furnished and decorated, we have also selected only the best quality pillows, towels and bed linens. A fully equipped kitchen means you can prepare a simple breakfast or cook a splendid dinner. The private courtyard offers a tranquil, shaded space to relax with a book or dine outdoors.

All our guests will be greeted by a local host who will help settle you in so that you can begin to relax, unwind and enjoy your holiday right from the beginning. Your hosts, who also live in the village, are closeby to help and assist you.

Situated on the southern coast of Crete, Sivas is one of the few villages in Greece which has been designated as a true tradition village. Packed with history and stunning traditional architecture, Sivas is an all year round destination, offering something for everybody at different times of the year. The village square is the beating heart of Sivas life. Around the square there are long established tavernas, offering traditional Greek cuisine. Each taverna has a proud family tradition and each offers their own specialties. There are also a number of coffee shops and groceries stores.

The village is just a few minutes drive to the protected beach of Komos, where sea turtles nest each year. The cosmopolitan resort of Matala is just a 10 minute drive away. Matala, with its sheltered beach and famous caves, was once part of the hippie trail and offers an eclectic mix of traditional and modern dining as well as a good selection of bars to suite all tastes.

The impressive archeological sites of Knossos, Festos and Agia Triada are all a short driving distance from Sivas.

About Michael

My name is Michael. I am Irish and I live and work in Dubai. I work as an HR Consultant. I enjoy traveling and exploring cities. I love food, eating it and cooking it but mostly eating it. If you need a recommendation for a great place to eat in Dubai, Budapest or in Crete, just let me know.

I have had a long association with the Greek Island of Crete and I have recently begun to rent Mikon Studios. Mikon is managed locally by Kostas and his wife Jayne. They live all year in the village and are always at hand to provide help and advice. Jayne is the hostess with the mostest. Kostas is too cool for school and will point you in the right direction for good food or chill-out vibes in Matala & the local area.

As a traveler, I am always mindful of the importance of good hospitality, local knowledge, clean and comfortable accomadation. We aim to provide you with a warm welcome, a home away from home and personal attention in an effort to make your stay with us a happy memory.

Big 2 bedroom apartment in the heart of Sivas Village, Crete.
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We rented both studios. My family of four stayed in the larger studio and my aunt and uncle in the smaller one. It fit our needs perfectly and we loved our stay. In general, this property has been very thoughtfully renovated. The beautiful pictures of the studios are accurate, and in fact the larger studio may look even better in person. Highly recommended.

Tolles, sehr stilvoll renoviertes Domizil in zentraler Lage

  • 5 of 5

Zuerst der Gesamteindruck: Alles in Ordnung, perfekte Organisation, sehr schönes Domizil.

Hat alles perfekt geklappt. Zunächst sehr gute Information durch fewo-direkt mit Übermittelung der Kontaktdaten mittels email durch die "fewo-Kontaktperson Michael (in Englisch - aber das war bereits in der Ausschreibung neben Griechisch als Kontaktsprache angegeben). Nach Ankunft in Sivas kurzes Telefonat und weniger als fünf Minuten später haben wir die Vermieterin Jayne getroffen, welche noch schnell einige Grundnahrungsmittel (Brot, Milch, Wasser) besorgt hat getroffen.

An der Unterkunft (ca 100 m) vom zentralen Platz in Sivas angekommen, stellt sich alles so schön wie in den Ausschreibungsphotos dar. Das Haus ist sehr stilvoll renoviert und mobliert. Die Ausstattung ist mit WiFi, TV, Klimaanlage und Küchenausstattung mit großem Kühlschrank im Hauptraum und kleinerem Kühlschrank im "Kinderzimmer" absolut ausreichend.

Der Kontakt mit Jayne war sehr freundlich und unkompliziert, wie vereinbart erfolgte nach drei Tagen ein "Handtuchwechsel", ansonsten haben wir Jayne und Kostas erst am Abreisetag wieder gesehen. Hier war die Übergabezeit - sehr angenehm - von uns vorzuschlagen, die Übergabe selbst wieder vollkommen unkompliziert.

Fazit: Sehr schönes Domizil, welches bei unserer nächsten Reise nach Kreta sicherlich ganz oben auf unserer Unterkunftswunschliste stehen wird.

P.S.: Eigentlich scheue ich Top-Bewertungen, auch aus dem Grund, daß man nicht jedem seine "Geheimtipps" verraten möchte - aber hier sind die 5 Sterne allemal verdient
