Most relaxing holiday that I've had in years!

  • 5 of 5

From the booking process, right through to saying goodbye, Giannis and Kyriaki were friendly, professional, and welcoming hosts.

The accommodation itself is perfect for a couple, everything provided is of good quality and worked as it should.

The view from the villa was incredible!! Breakfast and drinks in the evening on the balcony were a delight.

If you prefer to be far from the madding crowd (but still within reach of beaches & things to do) then these villas are the perfect choice.

It was our first visit to Greece and its islands. We will visit again!

Lovely traditional villas within the mountains of Crete

  • 4 of 5

We had one weeks stay at the Alatoli Traditional Villas. As we arrived at midnight, we were greeted by the very friendly owners. They also gave some information and tips about the local area which was helpful. During our stay the owners also asked me and my husband over for drinks / snacks with the fellow holiday renters which was a lovely night. A nice little touch that you would not get at many places. I must also say thank you for ensuring our stay was comfortable, the owner knew I was pregnant and went to efforts to ensure I had everything I needed and that I was comfortable. Be mindful that the Villas are high up in the mountains/hills and therefore you will need to rely on a car to get you anywhere. The only things that could potentially improve the Anatoli Tradtional Villas would be to install some air conditioning. The owner did however provide us with a fan but sadly this only circulated the hot air around the room and did not cool us down. All in all a lovely little place in Crete with spectacular views.

Einfach Tempo raus!

  • 5 of 5

Eine wirklich sehr schöne Wohnung mit Blick auf das Lybische Meer! Vom Vogelgesang geweckt und bald den Autolärm aus der Stadt zu Hause vergessen! Kyriaki und Giannis sind zwei Vermieter die einem jeden Wunsch von den Lippen ablesen, z.B. was alles Interessantes in der näheren Umgebung ist, wo man essen und einkaufen kann und wo es schön ist zu schwimmen. Wir wurden wie gute Bekannte empfangen! Die Gastfreundschaft ist hier sehr groß. Man kann hier gut wandern, die Sarakinas Schlucht ist in der Nähe. Zum Strand braucht man ca. 20 min und nach Ierapetra ebenfalls. Wir haben hier richtig gut entspannen können und kommen gerne wieder!

Sehr ruhig und erholsam!

  • 5 of 5

Unsere späte Anreise war kein Problem für die überaus herzlichen Vermieter. Unsere kleine Wohnung (1-2 Personen) war zweckmässig und gemütlich eingerichtet, alles sauber. Von der Terrassenanlage bot sich ein schöner Blick auf die Libysche See. Meist war es im Ort wunderbar ruhig, vor allem abends. Manches im Dorf steht leer. Überall wird jedoch die alte Bausubstanz behutsam instandgesetzt, wohltuend dabei die Orientierung an der traditionellen Bauweise. Die Umgebung des Dorfes steht angenehm im Kontrast zur intensiv genutzten Küstenzone. Hier ist sie, die Vielfalt der kretischen Kräuter; hier leben auch die sanften kretischen Bienen.

Entspannung in den Bergen

  • 4 of 5

Wunderschönes Bergdorf im Süden Kretas! Nette und kompetente Vermieter. Sehr freundliche Dorfbewohner und eine sehr gute Taverne im Dorf. Einziger Kritikpunkt am Appartement ist die Nähe zu den anderen U

rlaubern,wenn man auf der Terrasse sitzt.

Sehr schöne Bademöglichkeiten etwa 10 km entfernt.

Unser Highlight war das Küstendorf Mirtos. Super Essen, idyllische kleine Gassen und sehr nette Einheimische. ..wir kommen wieder!
