Great stay in the family- like circle

  • 5 of 5

Quiet village in southern Crete where eveybody knows everybody provides excellet holiday accomodation in the studio with self-catering facility. The hospitality of the owners - family Kassoti, exceeds the standards and provides you with the feelings that you have visited the close relatives.

If you want to relax from the city rush and charge you batteries, that is the place to go. Once you visit this resort, you will come back next year.

wonderfull greek hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We were the second time with Maria and Michalis and it was like coming home. They have welcomed us like dear friends and often treats with little gifts like wonderfull oranges and olive oil of best quality. The direct contact with them makes a Greece vacation so much more personal. Also the advice to discover the area of ??Michalis were wonderful. We'll be back!

A true Cretan experience

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, well maintained, clean, excellent equipped property in a quiet, safe, peaceful village with an excellent choice of tavernas for eating out. The grounds are gorgeous and very well kept, the owners are among the friendliest people ever met!

5 minute car ride – car rental is a must - takes you to a choice of several beaches, hiking through gorges, enjoying the Satursdays market at Mires, picking the herbs from the meadows around the village, visiting ancient sites like Phaestos or Agia Triada and more. Can recommend the horse riding in Pitsidia which takes you through olive groves & down to the beach or exploring the caves at Matala beach where you can still find the spirit of »The Flower Power« hippie times.

For those more active you can drive towards Rethimnon by the old road through the Psiloritis mountains with great views of the nature and relax at peaceful villages. Take a coffee in the lovely old town of Rethimnon, take a picture of the old venetian port or climb to the fortress. On the way back you drive through the gorge on the way to Plakias, take a swim at Damnoni or at one of the nicest beaches on Crete, Preveli beach. More spiritual tourist may visit the Preveli monastery.

Or just enjoy sitting in the beautiful flowery courtyard in the shadow of Maria and Mihalis lemon and mandarin tree or under the vine trellis, learn Greek language or just watching the village life passes by.

Maria & Mihalis were very friendly & helpful. Everyday they suprised us with small freebies like the grapes from their courtyard, organic olive oil from their own production, eggs from the village, watermelon, figs, wine, raki, lemon and more. We felt like we're the part of the village life and were also invited to the beach picnic with locals and some other visitors.

They also offer free wi-fi internet access and other technical appliancies.

We enjoyed the fact that there was no over commercialism in this area and we felt we had a true Cretan experience. Can highly recommend this village house – Horiatiko Spiti - if you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday.

Unser Highlight des Jahres!

  • 5 of 5

Der Aufenthalt bei Maria und Michalis ist jedes Jahr der Höhepunkt unseres Kreta-Urlaubes! Immer werden wir herzlich empfangen und die ganze Zeit von unseren großzügigen Gastgebern sehr verwöhnt. Die Studios sind tip top gepflegt und auf den Terrassen mit Blick auf Sivas, die Berge oder den üppig bepflanzten Innenhof kann man herrlich entspannen. Wir sind immer wieder sehr traurig, wenn wir abreisen müssen. Danke für Alles! Claudia und Christiane

Wunderbarer, erholsamer Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten zwei wunderbare Wochen bei Maria und Michalis in Sivas. Die Anlage und das Apartment waren sehr sauber, gepflegt und gemütlich. Wir haben uns bei Maria und Michalis sehr wohl gefühlt, die Beiden überraschten uns jeden Tag mit Kleinigkeiten und der Austausch mit ihnen war sehr wertvoll. Wir denken oft an die wunderbare Zeit zurück, und wer kein Massentourismus erleben will und individuell reist, ist hier perfekt aufgehoben.

Wir kommen definitiv wieder :-)
