We enjoyed our stay and used it as a good base to explore. The owner Nikiforous was very friendly and helpful and couldn't do too much for us.

Village house

  • 3 of 5

This was a great place close to Rethyminon old town' away from the hustle and bustle. There is a Taverna nearby called Christos Taverna that was amazing! The best food we had in 5 weeks in Greece. All home cooked by the mother with produce and meat from their own farm. They even make their own wine. Gallos Village is a nice area to walk around and explore with many old Cretan stone houses. The only down side to the house we stayed at was the very steep stairs to the sleeping areas and bathroom. It is more of a ladder and I would be very careful with small children and elderly people. My elderly mother in law found it very difficult to manage and we were nervous every time she had to go up or down the stairs. The owners were very helpful and I would like to go back with just my wife one day. Thanks a lot.

Very nice and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei Wochen im Sommer hier gewohnt und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und sehr bemüht, dass alles ok ist. Empfängt einen sogar mitten in der Nacht.

Das Haus ist sehr sauber, hat tolle Klimaanlagen u.a. Nur eine Waschmaschine fehlt.

Eine Auto ist nötig, aber Parkplatz gibt es vor der Tür.

Unser kleiner Sohn (4 Jahre) mußte jedoch bei der Treppe immer beaufsichtigt werden, da er durch das Gelände herunter fallen konnte.

Das Haus ist aber sehr zu empfehlen und wir würden es wieder mieten.

Wé enjoyed very much Nikiforos who was was very kind with us the access To his hôtel and the private beach was well appreciate.

A very good adress for holidays and the Taverna Christos in the village is great

Et pour les français on recommande vraiment l adresse qui nous plonge vraiment dans l ambiance d un petit village crétois.les enfants ont bcp aimé jouer aves les chatsle soir. La taverne est vraiment très bien, les fleurs de courgettes farcies sont top!
