A very charming property with a fantastic host. Hard to find in a small village but owner made arrangements to get us directly to the property. An original olive oil mill converted into a very comfortable place to stay. The owner met us upon arrival and surprised us with a tray of fruit (apples and oranges), a bottle of water in the fridge plus a very nice bottle of wine. Highly recommend this location to any travelers.
Crete village getaway...
Exactly what we were looking for...lovingly restored stone house in a small mountain village (once an olive oil factory)...plenty of room (two adjoining bedrooms upstairs) and a large kitchen/dinning room/living room downstairs. Beautiful garden terrace off the living room...and wonderful deck on second level overlooking valley and monastery. The house itself is located on a small stone alley too small for cars of any kind. Absolutely quiet except for the occasional barking dog or rooster. The house has everything one could wish for (wifi, television, working fireplace, well equipped kitchen). The location is such that you must have a car to get to and from restaurants and grocery stores, etc. but they are only 5-10 minutes away at most. Highly recommended.
Fantastic place to stay!
Manolis welcomed us personally and told us about the house. It was charming and comfortable and has such an interesting history! We loved our time there as well as the view from the balconies of the monastery and mountains. Thank you for your restaurant recommendations and advice about what to see. Highly recommend this as a place to stay.
Lovely stay at Villa Fabrica
We stayed at Villa Fabrica in May 2018 and loved it, the villa is very comfortable and easy to stay in, having breakfast on one of the balconies looking over the valley and the monastery is absolutely fabulous.The villa has got every convenience and is well maintained, and the village is very quiet and friendly. Walking up into the hills in the evening as the sun is going down is lovely.
It is just a short drive into the many tavernas of Kokkini Hani where we enjoyed many tasty meals, so all in all an excellent holiday.
Thank you for the excellent stay, we are looking forward to meeting you again.

A lovely house in the charming traditional cretian village of Anapoli,with fabulous views from the upstairs balconies . The house was well equipped and felt like a home .
Manolis was a very kind and helpful man who gave good advice on local tavernas and places to visit. The village is close to shops, beach , and restaurants in Kokkini Hani ,we visited the aquarium in Gournes which was very good.
