About Peter and Rosanne Coumbis

We are a mature aged Australian couple who fell in love with Mochlos in 2006. We come back every year and still find it to be a magic place with wonderful traditions and people.

Peter and Rosanne Coumbis purchased this villa in 2006

Why Peter and Rosanne Coumbis chose Mochlos

We fell in love with Mochlos in 2006 when we were travelling around Crete on holiday. Mochlos was a welcome relief from the mass tourism we had experienced elsewhere. We purchased the land before we returned to Australia and commenced construction the following year.

What makes this villa unique

When travelling around Crete we found furnishings in accommodation very basic and uncomfortable. We wanted a comfortable alternative. We have only the best quality furnishings and fittings so your stay is a comfortable one. Free unlimited internet, TV, DVD, Eygptian cotton sheets, luxurious towels, soft mattress, artworks, dishwashers, washing machine. Nothing has been overlooked so our villa is as luxurious as possible.

Beautiful village and house

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet village with good restaurants but no noisy nightlife. Mochlos was perfect for this type of stay. The villa was very comfortable, with everything we needed and just a 3 minute walk from the village. The restaurants were very good. We especially liked Taverna Mesostrati which had delicious grilled calamari and a lovely owner.

The surrounding sites of Minoan archaeology were particularly interesting.

Booking with Rosanne was very easy and she was very responsive to any questions we had.

Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed Mochlos, the tavernas and our villa. Mochlos is a special place far from the madding crowd and the mass tourism that is so prevalent in other areas of Crete and the islands. We don't have many Australian visitors so it was extra special to have guests from our home country.

Well appointed house, just close enough to Mochlos. Fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed house with everything you need for a stay. Outside and inside space, quiet location and just the right distance to walk down into the village for meals or shopping. We ate out nearly every night as the tavernas were so reasonably priced, and the mini-market had bread, veg and cheese etc for breakfast and simple lunches.

The house was very clean and tidy and nicely furnished.

Loved the cookbook - we ordered our own copy from e-bay before we left.

Only a minor gripe, we were there for 8 nights, and would have loved a change of bedlinen at some point (it was August, so it was hot).

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are always pleased when guests enjoy the villa and the tavernas as much as we do. As the villa is not serviced we provide additional sheets and towels in plastic boxes under the bed for guests who don't want to use the washing machine or air conditioning. There is a notice on the back of the entry door which includes this advice and we are sorry it was not brought to your attention. We will make sure future guests are aware of this and look forward to hosting you as our guest again.

Absolute paradise - both the villa and the village. And now free Wi-Fi in the villa as an added bonus. Cannot go wrong with this place and we keep coming back for more! We feel very at home in the villa as it has all the comforts you could need. The village is full of lovely people, especially Yiorgo at Koxilia Taverna and Dimitri at Dimitri's Taverna. And hardly a cloud in the sky. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased to receive your review. We feel the same way about Mochlos. It is a little paradise hidden away from mass tourism. We always value feedback on how to improve things for our guests. The wi-fi was a guest's suggestion that it would be beneficial. Guests wanting to chill out can ignore it and those that want to keep in contact can now do so. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.

Traumhafter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei wunderschöne Wochen in Mochlos, bzw. in der perfekten Villa von Rosanne und Peter verbracht. Das Haus ist super eingerichtet und hat eine traumhafte Aussicht auf das Meer und die Berge (und das vom Bett aus!!!).

Mochlos ist zu Fuß in 5 min zu erreichen und man fühlt sich sofort wohl. Die Auswahl der Tavernen ist groß, wir sind jedoch immer wieder bei Dimitri eingekehrt. Seine Küche ist hervorragend, ebenso wie der nette Service.

Von Mochlos aus hatten wir auch gute Startmöglichkeiten, einige Schluchte zu bewandern (hier speziell die Richtis Schlucht, mit Wasserfällen). Nochmals vielen Dank an Rosanne und Peter. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder.

The attractive settlement of Mochlos with its small harbour, beach and wonderful sea views is rare. It has escaped mass tourism and retained an idyllic existence. Mochlos is a 64km drive from the Iraklion international airport and 57km from the Sitea International airport.

Mochlos has nine traditional tavernas each owned by a local family serving delicious home cooked meals. Locals from the nearby city of Agios Nikolaos and surrounding areas enjoy long summer lunches here. Picturesque Mochlos overlooks the Mochlos Minoan Palace on the island just offshore. Together with the Palace of Knossos it is considered one of Crete’s significant archaeological sites.

There are many things to do in Mochlos. Walks to gorges, mountains and magnificent waterfalls. Explore the ancient sites, swim in crystal clear seas, take a boatride to the caves, play tennis or explore off road with a 4x4 trek. Relax, enjoy a book or the sunset with a raki or ouzo that somehow tastes better in Mochlos.

Other Activities: 4 wheel driving
