Originale Atmosphäre

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu fünft, zwei Eltern mit kleinem Kind (1 1/2 Jahre) und Großeltern, für 10 Tage in der Villa Sior Nikoletos in Voroi. Wir haben noch nie so gastfreundliche Vermieter kennengelernt, die uns am Flughafen abholten und zum ca. 60 km entfernten Haus begleiteten und uns sogar an einem Abend mit original kretischem Essen bekochten. Für Freunde des Ursprünglichen, abseits des Massentourismus, eine echte Empfehlung!

Spacy home in quiet town

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this house very much. Of course you should like the peace of the village but the house is great. The owners were very hospitable and introduced us the neighbourhood. A good restaurant (Alekos) is at 100 meters, we ate there 3 times. The nearest beach is at Kokkinos Pirgos and has free umbrellas. Besides the two small supermarkets in the village there is a big l at the start of Timbaki (5 min by car). The nicest city in the neighbourhood is Matala.

We had a great 2 weeks!

"We spent a wonderful wee...

  • 5 of 5

"We spent a wonderful week in the lovely villa. The owner and his family were very welcoming and treated us with exceptional hospitality. We couldn't have been treated better if we were old friends. The villa was beautifully arranged and lovely and cool in the heat of the day. The village was nice and quiet and yet we were in walking distance of a friendly family restaurant.There was also a bakers and some small shops very close by. It is a good location for exploring the beaches and the ancient sites such as Festos. The owners mother lives next door and she was very kind to us. We had a fantastic week thanks to the generosity shown by the owner and his family. It is a really lovely villa and we would definately recommned it and would certainly come again."

"We cannot recommend this...

  • 5 of 5

"We cannot recommend this villa highly enough. It is a beautifully restored old villa in the heart of Voroi, with a large living room and nice bedrooms and a shady garden to sit out in. Opposite is a very friendly taverna with good food. Voroi is very convenient for all the sites and beaches on the south coast.

Most important, however, is the hospitality of the owner and his family: they showed us the way to the villa very late at night on our arrival, and invited us to share Easter with them - a magnificent feast cooked in the outside oven at the side of the villa.

It was a very relaxing, friendly and comfortable place to stay. Very highly recommended."

Besser geht's nicht!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben Heimweh nach der schönen Villa von Maria und Ioannis, die noch reizvoller ist, als auf den Bildern zu sehen. Wie schon jemand vor mir berichtete, wirkt das Haus von der Straße aus eher unscheinbar, doch als wir den Garten betraten, waren wir begeistert von der warmen Atmosphäre! Dazu dann noch der herzliche Empfang durch Maria und Joannis, die Besitzer. Selten sind wir so verwöhnt worden - es stand Obst, Brot, Käse, Tomaten, Wasser, Öl und Wein für uns bereit - wie im Schlaraffenland für müde Reisende. Die geschmackvoll ausgestatteten Räume sind groß und gleichzeitig gemütlich. Hier hätten wir es noch lange ausgehalten! Wir werden die Villa unseren Freunden und Bekannten uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen und hoffen, selbst einmal wieder nach Vori zu kommen. Hier noch einmal ein ganz großes Danke an unsere lieben Vermieter!
