- English, Swedish, Greek, Danish, Norwegian
I’m half Greek (from western Crete) and half Norwegian. I speak fluent English, Norwegian, and Greek, and have lived and worked on Crete for many years but reside in Norway. This amazingly beautiful island and its people always make me look forward to coming back. I am fortunate enough to be able to spend the entire summer working on Crete. I wish you a wonderful holiday and will do my utmost to make it so!

Perfect spot, perfect place
Great place, just right for a week's break, unbelievable views, close to beaches (~5 minutes drive) and restaurants. You do need a car with a bit of oomph, though - up two steepish hills.
Great view, quiet, calm, relaxing place with outstanding support.
Really close to the airport but also to Chania. Very easy to walk the short cut to Sternes for those without a car. Also easy to walk to 2 beaches and explore the countryside around Sternes. The view is very special, taking in the sea and the spectacular white mountains. We enjoyed a relaxing retreat with no TV, radio, computer or phone distractions and felt wonderfully relaxed. There is a vegetable garden just beside the house.
Alexandra supplied us with really useful information before our holiday. Elsa was our host at the property upon arrival. The hospitality throughout our stay was outstanding, far more than ever could be expected. By the end of our week we felt like we had been staying with a good friend. This makes it a particularly special place. We would like to thank them both for enhancing our holiday.
Beautiful position exactly as shown and decribed
The owners were very attentive and amenable, made our stay perfect
Beautiful property, fabulous views.
The owners , Alexandra and Elsa, were very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We had very detailed information sent to us before we left which made everything very easy,from driving to our accommodation to choosing where to visit , and recommended restaurants. The situation of the garden house was very beautiful, overlooking the sea, and very peaceful. The house itself had everything we needed, and was very clean and comfortable.
We had a lovely stay there , and plan to return.
Thank you! We loved having you as our guests, and look forward to seeing you again.
One word- perfect!
The pretty village of Sternes is located south of Chania International Airport (no air traffic above). The village includes 3 places to dine, a gyro/souvlaki café, a tavern, and a Kafenion (local café). There are 2 minimarkets providing basic groceries, fruit and vegetables, a bakery, and a pharmacy.
Approx. 3 km below Sternes are the sandy beaches of Loutraki and Marathi. Both have shallow, crystal-clear waters, are well protected from the northerly winds of July and August, and are favorites among both tourists and locals alike. There are 3 places to eat in Loutraki; a beach café, a grill-taverna, and another lunch tavern. Marathi has a slightly larger selection of restaurants, one of them, Patrelantonis, considered to be one of the best restaurants in Chania. Equally good but with fewer selections on its menu is the beach fish-café of Rokakis. Fishermen in the family assure fresh fish and seafood on a daily basis.
