Peaceful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my partner and our twelve year old son had a lovely, peaceful time in this beautiful accommodation with fantastic views over olive groves. Being familiar with the island but less so with this particular area it was exciting to discover new places and experiences.

The property was pristine, two bedrooms and open plan lounge/kitchen. Nice additional features that made the stay more pleasant like nets on all windows/doors to allow a nice breeze but keep little creatures out.

Perfectly reasonable pool with steps down rather than ladder as in some properties, made for relaxing days spent reading soaking up the sun followed by a cooling dip.

The owners, Hans and Christine, who live in an adjacent property, were extremely friendly and hospitable but also left you to your own devices. Hans drove to find us when we got lost finding the property (it's not hard to find by the way) on our arrival - and it was after 12 at night!!

Restaurants available in the locality both near and slightly further away. A great evening of Greek folk music at nearby Mochlos is recommended (and we're not great fans of Folk music).

All in all a super week in an enchanting area with lots of places to explore both country and the busier cities of Irapetra and Agios Nicholias.

We hope to return next year.

Kavousi-Crete is all about relaxing...

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an accommodation in this area, stop searching -- THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE ! --

We spent this June two weeks on Kavousi-bungalows. Just great!

What can we tell you more, everything has already been written by other reviewers. It’s a ‘Little Gem’ on Crete!

The owners, Christine and Hans, were extremely friendly. Hans will provide you with tips and tricks, so there will be no secrets left for you to explore this beautiful part of Crete. Sometimes he is joking around and puts often a smile onto your face...:).

Christine is a very good cook, we were invited to have dinner with other guests at the owners bungalow. The food was delicious, so we asked her to cook more often, but..... well you guess, didn’t work haha.

One more tip, if you drive the ‘Grand Circle’ (Kavousi - Ierapetra - driving east to Xerokampos - Palekastro - Sitia - Kavousi) have lunch in Chiona Beach (in Palekastro follow direction Chiona Beach), left-hand side on the beach, the most left-hand taverne on a rock. Good food, amazing view, so a must do.

So again, very a good spot to have holidays. Well done Cristine and Hans! Thanks again.

Ein echtes Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Kurz gesagt: Perfekt. Völlige Ruhe, ein gefüllter Kühlschrank, sauber, hervorragend ausgestattet, nette Vermieter, die mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stehen, selbst wenn Fisch ausgenommen werden müssen, besser gehts nicht. Wir kommen wieder !

Wir waren zum ersten Mal auf Kreta und haben uns in diesem Traumhaus mehr als nur wohlgefühlt. Die Ruhe, die Aussicht, der Pool, die Ausstattung und nicht zuletzt die Vermieter Christine+Hans haben uns einen traumhaften Urlaub erleben lassen. Es fehlte nichts. Man kann von diesem Ort vieles unternehmen. Christine+Hans haben uns mit wertvollen Tipps versorgt. Wir kommen gerne wieder!!

Superbe location, à recommander.

  • 5 of 5

Très belle location, très propre, très calme, tout est impeccable !

Une belle vue sur la montagne et sur le village, la piscine (7m x 4m) est très belle, entretenue par le propriétaire pendant vos absences. L'endroit est propice à la détente.

L'endroit est idéal pour visiter l'est de l'île.

Ein Plätzchen zum Wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Wir durften in der ersten Woche der Pfingstferien Gast bei Christine und Hans sein. Die Beiden sind sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit, aber dabei angenehm zurückhaltend.

Empfangen wurden wir mit einem mit kretischen Leckereien gefüllten Kühlschrank inklusive Getränken. Unserem Hund Coco, der ebenfalls herzlich willkommen war (zumal Christine und Hans sehr engagiert sind, herrenlosen Hunden ein neues Zuhause in Deutschland zu organisieren) wurde liebevoll eine Schlafdecke zurechtgelegt.

Auch die Einrichtung des wundervoll gelegenen Hauses ist geschmackvoll und mit Liebe arrangiert. Der Ausblick auf die nördliche Küstenlandschaft und die umgebenden Berge sind atemberaubend. Der gepflegte Pool war bereits angenehm warm, und es war ein Genuss darin seine kleinen Bahnen zu ziehen.

Wer gerne mal eine Joggingtour drehen will, kann sich oberhalb des Dorfes Kavousi (Entfernung ca. 800 m) in einem einmaligen Geruchsgemisch aus Thymian und Salbei stundenlang austoben. Für Auskünfte über Touren in der näheren Umgebung steht Hans jederzeit beratschlagend zur Seite. Gerade zur Erkundung des weniger touristischen nordöstlichen, aber auch südöstlichen Teil Kretas ist das Ferienhaus perfekt gelegen.

Liebe Christine, lieber Hans, wir möchten uns nochmals sehr herzlich für den unvergesslichen Aufenthalt bei Euch bedanken. Bleibt so wie Ihr seid.
