Lovely house tucked into traditional life
We had a lovely week staying here with our 2 young children, lovely warm welcome and everything we needed. Supplied of local wine, olive oil, raki and honey made by Zacharias. A wonderful host. Lots of amazing beaches close by and stunning scenery.
We will be back!
Zacharias and Marina were lovely hosts. They made us feel very welcome upon our arrival and their wine, honey and raki were a much appreciated offering! They were especially helpful in making recommendations that took us to our absolute favorite beach and our most memorable and delicious meal of our trip. The feel of the house is truly special - breakfasts on the patio, hearing the night bird coo, and cooking in their lovely kitchen were highlights! We will indeed return.
We stayed at Meli-Zaxari Vila for 5 days with our 7,11 and 13 year old, as well as mother and sister in law (who are Greek). The home was delightful- just as in the pictures! The owners were so friendly and helpful- we felt so welcome. Easy access to beautiful beaches and wonderful tavernas...and the view of the sky and mountains is unbeatable. We would 100% stay here again!
We wouldn't change a thing...
A friend recommended this part of Crete to us, and we were lucky enough to find this perfect holiday cottage. The house is a wonderful combination of rustic charm and creativity - down to the last detail. The hosts, Marina and Zacharias, are enthusiastic, generous, and passionate about the region. Not only did we get to sample local delicacies, such as olive oil, honey, wine, and raki, but we also learned how they were made. Our experience of Crete was enriched by the hospitality they showed us. We can't wait to come back!

we had a fantastic stay at this wonderful traditional village home, Marina and Zachari are fantastic hosts, very friendly, welcoming and informative, they advised us on the best places to visit around this stunning area of crete, beaches, tavernas, local sights and lovely walks in the surrounding mountains, and we were very happy to just stay at the house with its great outside space and relax for some days.
The house is traditional and rustic, beautifully furnished, so much local and family history, it is spacious with all you will need for a relaxing stay, a real home from home. we arrived to find some of their home made olive oil, raki, wine and honey as welcoming gifts, a real treat!
We cannot recommend this place highly enough, when we left the house at the end of our week here we had some days in chania. We enjoyed our stay so much that found a way to extend our stay on crete for another 5 days, so we telephoned zacharis and came back to stay at the house for these days, just fantastic!!!!!!!!!!
thanks again to marina and Zacharis for a truly memorable vacation, we will be back in the spring of next year!
"Real people, real Krete,...
"Real people, real Krete,
the great grand father of Zacharias put 2 pillars on the roof of the house, one starry night I discovered that they were there to hold the sky.
We really had a great time there"
Take the road to Kissamos and then to Elafonisi. The village of Perivolia is the second one after Elos. Turn left and just follow the sunflowers.
