First time in Crete. Lovely to stay in a small village in the hillls away from the crowds.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for us, a couple, with everything we needed for cooking, if we stayed in, and very close to a local taverna serving excellent food. Everything was very well maintained and clean with great personal touches in the rooms. Local people were very friendly. The small terrace has great views down to the coast, to a little seaside village where there is a small beach and several excellent restaurants serving fresh fish. Our host was lovely and very generous with his own produce, olive oil, wine, fruit, etc. The location is convenient for the area’s beaches, archaeological sites and the larger towns of Sitia and Agios with their museums and shops. The only slightly negatives were intermittent WiFi and when there are guests in the upper apartment, they must walk on the outside staircase past the terrace and bedroom window. But it was only a small disturbance to a perfect holiday.

A perfect Cretan retreat

  • 5 of 5

A traditional property beautifully restored. I loved my short stay in this apartment in a completely unspoiled Cretan village. Nikos gives a wonderfully warm welcome and takes care that his guests have all they need. Sitting out on the porch, looking down on the sea, is beautiful both morning and evening, and the village is a great base for exploring the rugged east of the island. I will certainly try to go back!

Ferienwohnung für zwei

  • 5 of 5

Tolles Ferienhais für zwei in herrlicher ruhigen Lage, haben uns sehr Wohl gefühlt. Sehr netter Vermieter, z.Bsp. Olivenöl gratis. Idealer Ausgangspunkt zur Erkundung der östlichen Insel. Bademöglichkeit mit dem Auto in 15 Minuten erreichbar.

Kleines nettes Appartment - etwas abseits von trand und Leben

  • 3 of 5

Das 2-Zimmer Appartement ist nett eingerichtet, der Vermieter bzw. der Verwalter vor Ort ist sehr nett!

Es gab einen Obst-Korb, 2 Flaschen Wein, 3 kl. Flaschen Ouzo sowie 3 Gläser mit Eingemachten, Tomaten und Kirschen als Gastgeschenk! Sehr gastfreundlich und ungewöhnlich.

20 Meter unterhalb der Wohnung verläuft leider eine Hauptstraße, welche man in unserer Vorsaison am Morgen/Abend schon 4-5 mal hörte. Nachts war das aber kein Problem - wie das in der Hauptsaison ist - ?

Einen eigenen Garten zum Sonnen gibt es nicht.

Der Ort an sich ist eher langweilig, eine Taverne in Laufnähe (2 Minuten) bietet einen sehr schönen Ausblick aufs Meer, die Küche ist eher mittelmäßig. Für ein kl. Frühstück oder schnelles Abendessen aber ausreichend.

Das kleine Dorf Mochlos direkt am Meer und in ca. 20 Minuten erreichbar ist sehr schön, tolle Sonnenuntergänge und 3-4 gute Restaurants!

Die nächsten guten Strände sind aber ca. 15-20 km entfernt, was ca. 45-60 Minuten Fahrzeit bedeutet.

Preis/Leistung insgesamt also ok.

WUNDERBAR!

  • 5 of 5

Wirklich sehr empfehlenswert! Alles wurde sehr professionel und auf eine sehr nette Art kommuniziert: die Informationen vor der Ankunft, die Wegbeschreibung, die Sehenswürdigkeiten vor Ort. Der Gastgeber hat uns mit einem sehr großzügigen Lebensmittelkorb: Wein, Raki, Oliven, Tomaten, Gurken, Obst, Backwaren begrüßt. Die Lokation ist sehr geschmackvoll und das kleine Dorf hat eine tolle Taverne.

Eastern Crete

Eastern Crete, (east from Aghios Nikolaos) is the most authentic and unspoilt region of Crete since it is not touristically developed. It is the region that people from large Cretan cities (Heraklion, Chania) choose for their own relaxing vacations. Eastern Crete is mostly mountainous and the driving routes are winding and scenic, offering great views over wild mountains and the sea. In fact the whole route from Aghios Nikolaos to Sitia is considered on the best scenic drives in Greece. In this region you will meet writers and music composers who find inspiration in the sea/mountain views and the authentic village people.

An introduction to Mirsini village

Mirsini is a traditional Cretan village, unspoilt by tourism. It was incorporated during the Minoan period in the territory of the major Minoan city of Mochlos. It is located on Crete's northern main route, on the road from Agios Nikolaos to Sitia, 45 km from Agios Nikolaos and 23 km from Sitia at an altitude of 330 meters overlooking the gulf of Mirabello. It is famous for its great views (the village is west facing), its tranquility, the good food, wine and raki and for its hospitable and friendly residents. The village is surrounded by olive groves, fruit plantations, steep mountains and deep ravines.

Restaurants in Mirsini

Kathodon: a beautiful and cosy terrace within walking distance from the house. It serves traditional dishes and offers spectacular sea views. Another great restaurant is located in the neighbouring village of Mouliana, just 5 minutes drive from the house (it is open all year round during lunch and dinner hours).

Shopping

There is a small shop selling basic groceries in the village. For large supermarkets and a large wekkly fruit/vegetable market you will need to drive to Sitia town (30 min by car). If you prefer to avoid shopping we can stock the kitchen for you with all items you may need. The nearest pharmacy is located in the neighbouring village of Tourloti (5 minutes drive).

Hiking

If you prefer running water, lush vegetation and waterfalls, the entrance of Richtis gorge is a 15 minute drive by car, close to the nearby village of Exo Mouliana. The trail winds down the ravine for 4km passing from old bridges and abondoned watermills, through thick vegetation before reaching the sea at Richtis beach.

If you choose to explore the mountains and the amazing views you can start from the nearby village of Lastros and head towards the chapel of Saint John and Kapsas peak or towards Saint Nikitas (5km round trip).

Beaches

The closest beach is in the village of Mochlos approximately 15min by car. The nearest large sandy beach is Tholos, at a distance of 20km towards Aghios Nikolaos. Sitia sandy beach is 23km drive from the house. There are various other great options available. We will provide information about the best beaches in the region.

Sitia town

It is the nearest town (at 23km from the house) with a large sandy beach, supermarkets, a weekly farmer's market and a hospital.

For history and archaeology enthusiasts, Sitia's archeological museum display's exhibits dating back to the Neolithic era in 3,500 BC while the medieval fortress of Kazarma, situated at the top of Sitia is a reminder of the town's medieval past. Furthermore, the folklore museum exhibits items from the past century such as weavings, woodcuts and other everyday life items.

During the evening you can visit one of the numerous small restaurants ("Rakadika") situated along the town's fishing port, which serve delicious variety plates along with Cretan spirit "Raki". And if you are up to it you can continue your night out until the early morning hours in one of the local bars and clubs.
