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."

Nice House and very kind renter

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in the house in vori (4 people). The renters are very nice people, they welcomed us with cooked lamb and potatoes in the house and were helpful with hints for trips and the things you want to know know during your hoidays. The house doesnt look fancy from the outside but offers a fantastic interior. The owner is interested in archeology and if you like he can tell you a lot about minoan, greek and roman culture as well he knows the special places beside the beaten tracks like knossos and so on.

Vori is a small village with two taverns/coffeshops and a minimarket. Perfect place to start your trips to close beaches and excavation sites like festos or agia triada or hiking.

Empfehlung für eine perfekte Urlaubsatmosphäre

  • 5 of 5

Wir – vier Männer- hatten uns spontan entschlossen, in diesem Jahr unseren jährlichen Radurlaub auf Kreta zu verbringen.

Fern ab vom Touristenrummel haben wir Vori gewählt und es absolut keinen Moment bereut.

Besonders bedanken möchten wir uns bei unseren sehr netten und hilfsbereiten Gastgebern Maria und Ioannis, die wirklich alles unternommen haben, dass es uns an nichts fehlt.

Das sehr geräumige Haus ist mit sehr viel Liebe traditionell eingerichtet und es ist alles vorhanden was man benötigt.

In nächster Umgebung ist zu Fuß Bäcker, Einkaufsladen, Kaffees oder Apotheke zu erreichen und wir lieben den Kontakt zu den sehr, sehr gastfreundlichen Dorfbewohnern.

Zumal kaufen wir lieber die köstlichen lokalen Produkte im Ort, als in einer Supermarktkette.

Die Taverne von Alekos ist ebenfalls in nächster Nähe, der uns regelmäßig zum Abendessen mit kretischem Essen verwöhnt hat.

Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und werden wieder kommen…..

Frank, Mathias, Axel und Jörg
