  • La casa di Gabrilis a Vafes è il miglior compromesso tra la vera Creta dei paesi di pietre e le spiagge stupende a pochi passi. La casa è comoda, pulita, e dotata di ogni cosa (aria condizionata, microonde e persino la lavatrice). Gli spazi comuni (comunque per sole tre famiglie al massimo) sono fantastici! A partire dalla comoda piscina con i lettini, alla fantastica cucina all'aperto con un fantastico enorme barbecue dotato di griglie, carbone, ex. A 20 metri da casa c'è una tipica taverna (small plates restaurant) dove mangerete la vera cucina cretese a prezzi onesti (in 4 assaggiando praticamente tutto il menù 40€ le porzioni sono grandissime si possono dividere). A qualche km c'è il centro di Vryses con supermercati ex. Per finire dalla casa poteri fare una passeggiata tra le montagne e la bellissima Kalamato Cave, noi lo abbiamo fatto partendo a piedi da casa e siamo entrati nella caverna con due bambini di 4 e 6 anni, è gratuita ed incontaminata. CONSIGLIATISSIMA!

  • This location is fantastic!!! The host is extremely welcoming and was attentive to every detail to ensure we had a good stay! Each bedroom also had its own washroom as well as a main washroom downstairs. Very comfortable accommodation. Vafes village is wonderful....very friendly people. A good taverna a few steps from the house. The mountains nd entire region are beautiful and this village is located well to easily go to Chania or Rethymno etc for day or evening trips.

  • Excellent souvenir de cette expérience chez Gabrilis : appartement très confortable et propre, accueil très chaleureux de Gabrilis et sa famille qui rendent volontiers service. Par ailleurs le village de Vafès est très agréable avec une ambiance conviviale. Je recommande donc ce logement à tous ceux qui veulent du confort, de la tranquillité et de la proximité avec des belles villes crétoises (sfakia, réthymno).

    Guillaume2013-09-20T00:00:00Z

    1 appartamento 2/3 persone, con 2 posti (35 m2): soggiorno con divano letto (1 posti letto), 1 bagno (vasca o doccia). Al piano superiore: 1 camera da letto (due letti singoli), possibilità di un letto supplementare per un bambino fino a 10 anni.
    The quiet village of Vafes was a location where many conflicts between the rebellious Cretans and the Ottoman army took place, in the various battles for the independence of the island. 300 meters from the village, do not forget to visit the cave of Krionerida. At 3.5 km there is Vrises, a charming little village where there are restaurants, cafes and shops for anything you might need. In the area there are many small churches, the monastery of Agion Asomaton and very beautiful villages on the slopes. Georgioupolis beach is about 8 km from the village of Vafes.
  • Manolis è un ottimo padrone di casa! E' molto gentile e disponibile, ci ha offerto raki, uva e un buonissimo dolce alle noci. La casa e' meravigliosa, abbiamo soprattutto apprezzato il balcone dal quale si ha una bella visuale sul paese. Vafes è un luogo molto suggestivo, vicino a Vryses. Ci sono due taverne appena fuori casa e la sera era nostra abitudine passare lì per un caffè... che nostalgia!

    Aurora2016-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • L'abitazione è una casa in pietra tipica del villaggio,bella e ben tenuta,comoda e accogliente! Gli ospiti sono due persone gentilissime e accoglienti,donandoci anche dell'uva ,dei dolci e raki durante il soggiornoIl villaggio è in collina,piccolo e caratteristico ma abbastanza vicino alla costa.Per chi ama la quiete e la natura!

    Silvia2017-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • L'appartamento anche se piccolo, permette data la sua posizione strategica, di visitare la parte ovest dell'isola. Il complesso prevede diverse tipologie di residence, il nostro prevedeva piano terra con ingresso, angolo cottura e bagnetto, ed una scala interna per mezzo della quale si accedeva al primo piano con 2 letti singoli ed un ulteriore bagno. L'host manolis si è sempre dimostrato molto gentile ed attento alle nostre necessità, aiutandoci con ogni mezzo a sua disposizione

    Marco2015-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Vafes is a wonderfully quiet village with a fascinating (and rough) history. The house is simply wonderful, carefully renovated in order to maintain the authentic feel of a Cretan stone house. From the balcony there is a fine view: At the one side the Mediterranean 200 m below. At the other the snow capped mountains. The scent of orange tree flowers. What more can we ask for? Manolis was the perfect host. He brought us fresh fruit, firewoods, homemade olive oil, raki - and he took his time to tell us stories about the village and its surroundings. From the village there are great trekking opportunities as well as a cave with a horrific story. We enjoyed our stay so much and we would warmly recommend this house to families like ours (with kids from 4 to 11)!

    Sune Christian2015-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful spot ! We stayed there for only one night, but wished we were there for more! It is a great apt, authentic gorgeous place with all you need! The host was there to welcome us, even at 11:30pm !!! Very awesome experience there, where you can also meet other travellers. :) we would deeply recommend if you are renting a car !

    Pascale2017-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Manolos est un hôte extrêmement accueillant dans un cadre typiquement crétois. Beaucoup d'attention à notre égard et appartement fidèle à la description ... Nous avons apprécié un petit raki le soir sur la terrasse. Manolos à pris du temps pour nous faire visiter l'ancienne et la nouvelle 'fabrique d' huile '. Il est appréciable de revenir le soir au calme profiter de la cuisine de la taverne, après avoir visité les lieux touristiques de la région de La cannee . Merci à Manolos sa femme et le village pour leur accueil. Vafes chez Manolos Patriko une adresse incontournable...

  • Très joli logement pur style Crétois, dans un charmant village près de Giorgiopoulis beach. J'ai pris tous mes repas à la taverne et je m'y suis régalé avec en plus le sourire de la propriétaire.

    jean2017-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nous avons passé un super séjour dans la belle maison de Manolis, qui nous a chaleureusement accueillis. Vafes est un village charmant, facile d'accès, proche de plein d'endroit à visiter et découvrir, à pied ou en voiture, et surtout respirant la tranquillité. Nous conseillons absolument de dîner à la taverne à 50 m de la maison, et plusieurs fois si possible pour goûter toute la cuisine locale et entièrement faite maison !! En bref, nous repasserons certainement chez Manolis lors de notre prochain voyage en Crête...

  • What a wonderful experience! The house is beautiful and in a great location. You will truly experience the warm hospitality of Crete in this location. From the moment we arrived Eleftheria made us feel completely at home! Her lovely homemade preserves and snacks were there to greet us on our arrival and she was also available and very helpful with any information we might need for our week long stay. She also graciously invited us out the old city of Rethymnon with her family one evening. What a great experience & beautiful city! Our young nieces from California were traveling with us this trip and as Eleftheria's grandkids were also visiting from Athens, she made them all a lovely dinner on our last evening at her place. It is a memory the girls will cherish for a lifetime! The local cafe recommended by Eleftheria (within walking distance from the house) was a culinary experience. The food was out of this world, local, fresh, deliciously prepared. Everything about the place, location, and host was perfect! We are very grateful and would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Hili2016-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Eleftheria was just the perfect host. She was already waiting for us when we arrived with a bag of goodies that she made such as marmelade, raki, etc... She brought us some clean linen and towels during our stay, fresh oranges and also invited us to join her and her family on Easter for dinner. She made our stay even more perfect!

    Katra2016-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in Christina's House and such a warm welcome by Eleftheria! Inside we found a basket filled with local and homemade delightfulness, such as olive oil, jam, raki and biscuits. During our stay we - and especially our little son ;-) - were spoiled by Eleftheria and she was always there as we needed something. We even had a meal with her friends and felt like one of them ourselves. The appartement is even more charming as shown on the pictures. We would definitely recommend this place! Thank You!

    Davidis2015-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Eleftheria est une très charmante hôtesse, non seulement par son accueil chaleureux et amical mais aussi par ses conseils de découvertes : cuisine, culture, plages, tavernes, restaurants .... D'autre part, le village de Vafes est un lieu de vie très agréable et familial, où tous les enfants se retrouvent, où les cafés proposent une cuisine traditionnelle crétoise, au sein d'un environnement propice à la randonnée et très bien placé à 15 minutes des premières plages et entre les villes de Xania et Réthymnon. Notre séjour à Christina's House chez Eleftheria à grandement contribué à la réussite de nos vacances, nous avons vraiment le sentiment d'avoir fait connaissance avec la Crète et ses habitants accueillants, généreux, disponibles avec des valeurs proches des nôtres. Vivement le prochain voyage !!!!!

    Jean 2016-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Eleftheria's house is a beautifully restored, traditional Cretan home. We loved the decor, the space and the courtyard and roof terrace were added bonuses. There was a welcome basket of local produce for us (not all of which we had time to sample!) and a beautiful cake which lasted us the whole of our stay. We also grew to love the mountain herbs for making tea. There was plenty of hot water and there wasn't anything we looked for that wasn't there. There is a choice of 3 tavernas/cafes in the village - the establishment next to Lotus, the gift shop, has a beautiful terrace to sit out on and a small bar too. We were made very welcome in both of the places that we ate in. There are local caves with interesting history: the gift shop owner told us the stories attached to them. He also opened up the village olive oil museum which is worth a look. Vafes provided a secluded, non-touristy base for us to explore and relax and our visits to Rethymnon, Chania and the Samaria Gorge were all easy to manage

    Lynne2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Eleftheria est une hôte particulièrement attentive aux voyageurs. À notre arrivée, elle nous attend au petit café du village et nous offre une bouchée. Elle prend aussi le temps de bien nous conseiller sur les visites des jours à venir. Son logement est impeccable, chaleureux et rempli de petites attentions (gâteau maison, oeuf frais, huile d'olive et épices fraîches). Nous avons eu un séjour mémorable à Vafes.

    Catherine2017-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had the best time in Crete. Eleftheria is very nice, she takes good care of you and helps you with every matter. The house is even better than it looks on the photo and it is very nice to have such a lovely place for yourself. The village is small but all the people are lovely and welcome you amongst them. To get there and also to see other places I would recommended to rent a car. This was our best AirBnB experience so far. We got to know almost all of Eleftherias family and we felt like a part of it. Thank you again for the lovely time. We definitely recommend this place

    Ina2015-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Eleftheria est une dame extraordinaire !!! Si vous voulez vivre comme les Crétois, c'est l'endroit idéal. Vafes est un petit village de 150 habitants en montagne, tout en étant près des plages et de Chania. L'appartement est magnifique; une maison de plus de 250 ans complètement rénovée. Nous sommes tombé en amour avec l'endroit et, Elefthéria est devenue une amie dès notre rencontre. Toujours là pour vous conseiller et vous aider à planifier vos journées. Nous étions là pour trois jours et, nous avons diner au village avec elle à tous les soirs (trop cool); quel délice !!! Ce fût extrêmement difficile de quitter ...

    Bello, piacevole e davvero accogliente villaggio.
  • What we loved about this place was the atmosphere. It practically glowed with an aura of tradition and romanticism. We only wished we could have filled it with more people. It was almost too much for just the two of us. We were there in Spring, and since there is no A/C it might get hot in the peak of the summer, but the thick stone walls might help to keep it call. And there are lots of windows, but no screens (which is not unusual in Europe). The kitchen was a bit small and cramped, but well stocked. Very nice location high on a hill overlooking the village. You can watch the sunrise from the second-story balcony. There's a very nice gorge almost in the backyard for a pleasant little hike up to a shrine. The people were wonderful. We'd love to come back some day.

    Frank2014-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • the house has a lot of atmosphere and is nice located. but for more than 4 people i wouldn't recomend it as it gets a little tiny. there's only one bathroom with shower and only one separate bedroom (doublebed). the other beds are located on the upper floor (mezzanine) without separations to the living-area. for families its perfect and the village next to it is very nice. also the olf neighbour below:)

  • The villa is a great place, couldn't be more gorgeous location. The hosts were over the top generous with their native Cretan produce and attentive. If you have the opportunity to stay there, grab it, it is a privilege.

    Liora2015-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • It was 3rd Airbnb experience for our family and it was a pure delight! We were very lucky both with the choice of this unique place and a very warm welcome from the host.Everything was perfect! We were welcomed by a traditional homemade cake, fresh organic products and very attentive and caring hosts! What a delight! It was very comfortable and honorable to live in this remarkable traditional house renovated with so much love and respect to its first owners. I will recommend this place to anyone who wants to go off the beaten track and at the same time feel oneself at home! Thanks a lot, Leah and Vasilis! We will never forget this trip!

    Elena2016-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • It was a wonderful moment spent in this incredible mansion. The rustic interior held with love and the beautiful surroundings left us great memories. The host made us feel much more than welcome and we had the best breakfast we ever could dream of thanks to all the numerous attentions they left. Highly recommended!!!

    Stanislas2015-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • The most beautiful home in a welcoming village. We had the home to ourselves and it was the perfect resting place after a long journey. They filled the home with organic fruits and vegetables from their garden. And plenty of Roki to keep us smiling! We did the hike in the backyard to the cave and took a tour of the olive oil museum in town. We had delicious food and listened to traditional live Cretan music. We traveled to the south sea for swimming during the day and had plenty of exploring to do in the surrounding towns to keep us busy. We would stay over and over again. The hosts were very friendly and even invited us to dinner one evening. This place is perfect if you're looking for an authentic experience.

  • Siamo stati a Tzitzifes dal 17/08/15 al 27/08/15 e ci siamo trovato benissimo. Il paesino e molto caratteristico e le persone gentilissime. Non ostante il nostro ritardo rispetto all'orario di arrivo ( abbiamo sbagliato strada!!! ) Antonio ci ha aspettati sotto il sole! La sua accoglienza e stata fantastica : ci ha anche fatto trovare in frigorifero panini, acqua , succhi, jogurt frutta e ...... raky!!! La casa e esattamente come si vede nelle foto.... anzi piu bella!! La vista sulle colline vicine toglie il fiato e la colazione sotto al pergolato la sogno ancora oggi!! Spero di tornare a Tzitzifes e questa volta , di poter passare una serata con Antonio e la sua famiglia!

    Cristina2015-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Antonios was very generous in both leaving us supplies in the fridge and also with sharing his wonderful house in the mountains. The house was clean and spacious with real character while adding a modern twist where it needed to. We sat on the terrace most nights and really enjoyed the mountain surroundings and beautiful views. The house is in close proximity to Chania, several beaches and Georgopolis which were all very welcoming and a coach to the Samaria gorge was available from just down on the main road. This is the perfect house for a private, secluded holiday with easy driving access to everything you could need in Crete. Thankyou Antonios!

    Douglas2016-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • The house is really beautiful. The pictures don't do the house justice. Especially the views over the valleys. The green valley, mountain peaks and sea in the distance is the best view for your morning coffee. The house is much more spacious than the pictures suggest. Great value for money. Antonios was very generous with stocking the fridge with milk, fruit and the cupboard with bread, coffee and tea. I've stayed in quite a few places and countries using airbnb and Antonios has been the most generous and kindest host of them all. Things to consider - You do need a car and a satnav as the location is secluded. And most beaches, larger towns are about 20 minutes drive down the mountain. Driving compentency is must, stray cats, potholes and Cretan drivers are a common hazard on the roads. The house doesn't have internet and you will hear the church bells, sheep's bell and a calls to prayer. But it's tranquility and authenticity makes the accommodation special. If you're looking for a secluded, more authentic holiday away from the over-developed tacky resorts you find in Crete then Antonios' place is for you. I work in London and the tranquil, authentic, isolated trip was exactly what I wanted before the trip and exactly what I got when I was there. Thanks Antonios.

    James 2017-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Le logement est tout à fait conforme à la description faite. Il est parfait pour un séjour hors des lieux touristiques et pour s'immerger dans la campagne et la vie crétoise. A partir de Tzitzifes, on peut tout à fait rejoindre quelques lieux marquants de Crète et surtout découvrir la diversité des paysages. La maison est très agréable mais ne possède pas de clim (attention à ceux qui craignent la chaleur!) Antonios est un hôte extrêmement disponible. Il a toujours répondu rapidement aux questions que nous lui posions. A notre arrivée nous avions du fromage blanc (local) et des boissons dans le réfrigérateur. Nous avons passé réellement un très bon séjour à Tzitzifes.

    Olivia2016-07-03T00:00:00Z

    Lorena2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Antonios was a very attentive and understanding host. His second home in the mountains is wonderful. He and his family have put a lot of care and love into its restoration. It is more than enough room for 4 guests. We had a lovely time and saw much of Western Crete using this home as our base. Thanks Antonios!

    Patricia2016-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely time in Tzitzifes. Very quite and not another tourist in sight! The village itself is at the end of the road, so very little traffic, and a lovely spot to read and hang out. Dawn over the mountains viewed from the patio area is stunning. The house itself is well appointed and has everything you could need for a simple an uncomplicated holiday. Antonios was a great host and had got some local yoghurt, honey (both delicious) in for me as well as some fruit. The town of Fres, about 5 mins drive, has a bakery and coffee shop and very basic local store and I ate twice in the taverna between the two villages (rustic simple food, lamb and chips basically). On the last night I tried the taberna down in the village where the supermarket is (Agia P - something!) aout 7 km from Tzitzifes. Definitely worth the drive. The hosts have some English and a really good menu. Its the modern grey building on the main street. I did also try the Tzitzifia Taverna in the village but it was closed both time, but the tables were set so maybe they were having a week off(URL HIDDEN)

  • We loved our stay in Antonios' house at Tzitzifes. It was just what we had hoped for - an authentic, beautifully renovated house in a quiet village with splendid views of the countryside. We were able to choose to spend lazy days or to make day trips to either side of the island. We tried the village taverna twice for rustic meals in a laid back setting and shopped in Vrisses to cook for ourselves. Everything went very smoothly from our original booking to meeting Antonios at an appointed place and being shown round the house. He kindly stocked the frig for essentials. We highly recommend Antonios' lovely weekend house for those looking for a stay away from the big resorts.

The village is surrounded by trees and cosists of two neighborhoods separated by a creek , where an old stone fountain is build. The natural habitat makes the village ideal for hiking enthusiasts as they can follow the incredible paths which surrounding the area . A personal favorite activity to do in Tzitzifes is cycling across the hills , where you can get a breathtaking view of the surrounding area (personally i do that exercise often early in the morning). Moreover, a kafenion and two local taverns (rizitiko and tzitzifia) offer traditional food ("antikristo" , "staka" etc). In addition , three cheese factories are located also in Tzitzifes , where you can buy dairy products.

  • Χαρήκαμε πολύ που μείναμε στον χώρο του κ. Μάνου που ήταν πολύ φιλικός και μας εξυπηρέτησε όσο καλύτερα μπορούσε. Πιο πολύ από όλα χαρήκαμε που γνωρίσαμε την αξιολάτρευτη κα Mary που μας υποδέχθηκε αλλά και ενδιαφέρθηκε για μας πάρα πολύ. Μας άρεσαν τα ήσυχα βράδια που περάσαμε οικογενειακά κοντά στην πισίνα. Το σπίτι είναι κοντά στο χωριό Βρύσες όπου υπάρχει μια αρκετά καλή Ταβέρνα "Προγούλης" για φαγητό (κυρίως κρέας) αλλά και SuperMarkets (προτιμήσαμε αυτό του κ. Μαριδάκη (που ήταν πολύ φιλικός) κοντά στην Πλατεία) για τα καθημερινά ψώνια. Το σπίτι είναι μεταξύ Ρεθύμνου και Χανιών και έτσι κανείς μπορεί να επισκεφτεί αξιοθέατα και να κάνει δραστηριότητες και στα δύο μέρη. Η απόσταση μπορεί να φαίνεται λίγο μεγάλη αλλά η τιμή (τιμή γνωριμίας 40€ ως πρώτοι πελάτες) που ενοικιάσαμε το σπίτι ήταν εξαιρετική και τα έξοδα μετακίνησης καλύπτονται από το γεγονός αυτό. Δεν θα ξεχάσουμε την κα Mary, την καλοσύνη της και την αγάπη που έδειξε σε μας και τα παιδιά μας, πολλά φιλιά και μακάρι να τα ξαναπούμε στο μέλλον.

  • Nous avons passer un petit séjour très agréable chez Michalis, la maison, placée au coeur d'un petit village très sympathique, était très spacieuse et jolie et très atypique . Belle petite piscine disponible avec transat, parasol et wifi accessible depuis la piscine ou la terrasse.

  • Overall, as mentioned in the other comments, Villa Irini is a real nice place to stay if you want both quietness and easy access to many attractions in the Chania department. But some things could be optimised. Here are my "+" and "-" : PLUSES -Excellent location: far from the tourist masses, in an small mountain village, but still very close to a supermarket (in Vrysses) and to the island main road. However, be aware that you need a car if you want to stay in that place. -Two taverns can be found next to the villa: food is good, prices are low, everyone is friendly and welcoming there! -The apartment is very pleasant (for 2 people i'd say): one large living room with kitchen and one large bedroom + a tiny but convenient bathroom + two large terraces. -Swimming pool is small but really pleasant especially after you come back from your daily excursions. MINUSES -Aircon is only available in the bedroom, but not the living room (besides, the remote control for the aircon was almost running out of battery...). -There are not enough kitchen tools : only 2 very small glasses, not enough knives, not enough large plates... -Nobody to welcome us: Michalis doesn't live here at all or even nearby, the key was on the door on our arrival and that was it. Michalis didn't answer all my messages after we arrived... It's quite unpersonal. -The apartment could be cleaner: lots of dust under the bed for instance... There is no sweeper in the apartment either. -You should know, as it is not clearly mentioned in the ad, that you will share the swimming pool with other guests (there are 4 or 5 units in the residence). -Wifi connection is poor: not working at all inside the villa, working a bit when on the terrace and working properly only around the swimming pool. All in all, our stay was very pleasant even with the imperfections I mention. It's really an original way to discover Crete, very far from the concrete all-inclusive resorts.

  • JUST GO THERE! Beautiful house with a touch of decorative items, wide balconies, the perfect pool with the perfect view. Located in a small quite village but still not too isolated. Next to the villa there is a sweet Cafe/Restaurant with a beautiful balcony and they serves delicious food made by the lovely owner. This cafe was for us an extension of the villa. It was great to open our day there with breakfast or to end the day with dinner on the balcony. If you choose to cook for yourself, in the villa you can find the equipment you need to make light meals and in the next village 5 min from Vafes you can find supermarket with great local products and you can also shop in the big market in Chania which is 30 min drive from the house. Irini and Michalis were very kind. Gave us plenty of tips for our stay and quickly responded to our questions from the beginning of our inquiry until our last day. So yes, we definitely recommend this beautiful place, we would like to live there...

  • We had a great few days here. The house is lovely and well equiped with a secluded garden. We arrived by bus from Heraklion and Vassilis sent us photos so we could see where to turn off the main road to get to the house, which was really helpful. It took us less than 15 minutes to walk from the bus stop, with a wheelie suitcase, and when we got to the house we found a load of local treats - olive oil, raki and preserved fruit in syrup, which were delicious. Vrisses has several restaurants and two small but well-stocked supermarkets. About half an hour's walk further up the road is a village called Vafes, which has an old olive oil press and and a hermit's cave up a little gorge and a lovely low-key restaurant with a big sun terrace at the back, next to the slightly random gift shop in the village. We also walked to the Dourakis winery for a wine tasting which was fun. Took us about 75 minutes to walk, it was quite uphill, but there were great views back to the coast. It was an easier walk on the way back!

    Vik2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • The location is great and the house as well. It is so pleasant to sit in the garden and enjoy the view. The attention of the hosts to the small details was also great. Thanks a lot

  • We had really nice nine days in the charming stone villa, though the weather was not as good as expected. We felt really like home, because of the cosy atmosphere and all the welcome gifts from Vassilis. Vrises is just a five minute walk away, where you can find nearly everything... Supermarkets, bakery... The best experience was the great outdoor shower and the brilliant room service every three days. And Vassilis answers your questions every time of the day. Thanks for all, hope we can come back again, Sandra

    Restaurato Stonehouse tradizionale nel villaggio di Tzitzifes ai piedi delle White Mountains, un luogo con una ricca flaura e paesaggio naturale. Ampio giardino privato ed incantevole camera da letto con enorme roccia incorporato! Può ospitare fino a 5 persone (2 camere da letto e 1 soggiorno con divano letto). casa completamente attrezzata, e la più importante, una calda accoglienza e grandi sorrisi vi aspetta insieme ad alcune tratta! La nonna Vaggelio farà in modo di questo.
    A house with history, its construction is dated back to 1800's. The decoration was meant to retain the traditional elements of a Cretan house. Consists of two autonomous appartments, one at the ground floor and one at the upper. The current listing regards the ground floor appartment with courtyard. The layout is ideal for families, a bedroom for the parents (double bed), and a bedroom for the kids (two single beds), while one extra person can sleep in the sofa-bed in the living room. About the courtyard: Spacious and private yard, with stone walls surrounding it. At the entrance a shed provides shade for those waiting impatiently for the fellow companions to get ready for the beach. A quite old well (locked by a small door to prevent small children from opening) is built in the side of the yard. The patio is stone-paved, and on the side, a small garden hosts a jujuber (the tree that gave its name to Tzitzifes), a mandarin tree, a lemon tree, a pomegranate and a beautiful scenting jasmine. An umbrella provides shade to outdoor furniture that can gift you with moments of tranquility. If the weather is bad (kind of unusual) you can transfer the table on a small shedded area before the house entrance. The spacious private yard is ideal if you carry a pet with you, or you have kids who want to have some fun outdoors. A shower for a quick douche after the beach is also available. About the living room - kitchen: Venice architectural elements on the stone arches of the house can be found and is really amazing if someone thinks how back does this age goes. The living room is plain decorated but still cosy, and a sofa-bed can sleep one person. The kitchen is fully-equipped with respect to amenities and kitchenware, search through the pantries to find what you are looking for. Coffee making (espresso, filter coffee and greek roasted coffee) is possible. About the bedrooms: In the luxurious Double Bedroom, a huge rock is embedded into the room enchanting the scene (Tip: light candles up inside the rock's indentations). You can have a really calm nap in there. The rocks also provide a relatively narrow temperature range during the whole year. A small door inside the room can guide you to an indoors yard, which cools the room and makes it more airy. A good idea is to also dry your clothes there. The single bedroom, apart from its main bed, has an extra foldable bed (cosy) to sleep one more person and a closet. Sheets, towels and blankets are of course available inside each room. About the bathroom: you can find basic amenities inside the bathroom and a new washing machine along with detergents. Sun heater provides warm water consistently during the summer, though during a cloudy day you can access an electrical heater through the main panel. Located in the village of Tzitzifes, it is exactly between Chania and Rethymno, and is ideal for those who want to explore the vast island of Creta (well just the counties of Chania and Rethymno for one summer...) or relax and enjoy the tranquility if the village.
    Tzitzifes è un tranquillo villaggio ai piedi delle Montagne Bianche e si compone di due quartieri separati da un torrente, dove una vecchia fontana in pietra è stato costruito (temperamento molto fresco anche durante l'estate - deve visitare). L'intera area è un grande forestland, e si ottiene una buona vista della zona circostante, con una passeggiata a poche centinaia di metri su per la montagna. Due buone taverne locali (Rizitiko e Tzitzifia), un Cafè Bar - mini market e tre caseifici dove si possono acquistare prodotti locali esistono nel paese, e Fres che è il vicino villaggio ed è raggiungibile a piedi, offre un negozio di panetteria. Vrusses (10 minuti di auto da Tzitzifes) è una piccola città, che fornisce tutti i servizi di base che potreste avere bisogno (tra cui super-market, stazione di servizio, ufficio postale, stazione degli autobus con percorsi multipli, taxi e altri negozi). Infine, Georgioupoli, Kaluvaki (spiaggia più piccola accanto a Georgioupoli con un fiume che scorre in esso), Kaluves, Almurida sono belle spiagge di sabbia vicino alla Tzitzifes - 15 minuti di macchina.
  • Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à « Stone Mansion ». C’est une maison spacieuse agréable et qui reste fraiche pendant les pics de chaleur. Nous n’avons pas rencontré Vassilis en personne mais il a été très disponible par téléphone ou par sms pour des conseils divers. C’est l’adorable grand-mère qui nous a accueillis très chaleureusement et qui quelques jours après est venue avec l’oncle de Vassilis pour s’assurer que tout allait bien. Ils nous ont gâté avec un délicieux vin produit par l’oncle et des bretzels que nous avons bien savouré. Mon seul regret est de ne pas avoir pu goûter les grenades juste devant la maison qui n’étaient pas tout à fait mûres lors de notre passage.

She s so sweet than even if she doesn t speak english our communication using eyes and hands was great. And even if we didn t met Vassilis directly he has always been there calling very often to know if we need something. Just go there and enjoy. That s what we need and we never regret. And very Nice village as well with very smilling people

  • Merveilleuse petite maison située dans un petit coin magique de l'arrière pays crêtois, dans un village typique situé dans les montagnes et à 15 minutes de la mer. Le logement est encore plus beau que sur les photos. La maison est entièrement équipée, avec de quoi cuisiner, faire des lessives. Toutes les choses de base étaient présentes dans le logement à notre arrivée (café, eau, liquide vaisselle, produits de douche, serviettes et draps à volonté...). Nous n'avons pas eu la chance de rencontrer Vassilis, mais il a été très présent pour nous par téléphone. Il est très réactif à la moindre question. Nous avons eu le plaisir en revanche de rencontrer la très dynamique et sociable grand-mère de Vassilis, avec laquelle on a passé du temps, malgré la barrière totale de la langue! Elle a nous a accueilli comme des rois. Nous avons donc passé trois journées très agréables en juin. La terrasse est superbe. Les chambres sont fraîches. Bref, on recommande!

  • Vassilis and his grandmother welcomed us to their home with warm smiles and kindly invited us to share a toast, some snacks, and stories about their family. The house itself was impeccable and very comfortable, with plenty of space for the four of us. It could easily accommodate another person or two. We were sorry that our stay was very brief, and feel fortunate to have crossed paths with Vassilis and his wonderful grandmother.

  • Einfach ausgestattete Wohnung mit vollwertiger Küche und zweckmäßiger Möblierung. Das Ambiente ist dank der schönen Stein- und teils sogar Felswänden einzigartig. Wunderschöne Felsnischen mit Teelichtern im Schlafzimmer wie auf den Fotos. Die Dusche ist wirklich winzig. Ohne Sonnenschein gibt es auch kein warmes Wasser, was ich auf Kreta aber auch nicht anders kenne. Zur Heizung dienten uns im April 2 Radiatoren. Im Sommer ist das dicke Gemäuer sicherlich angenehm kühl auch ohne Klimaanlage. Man kann auch im bepflanzten Hof sitzen. Sitzgarnitur und Sonnenschirm sind vorhanden. Sollte es doch einmal regnen, kann man in den überdachten Vorraum umziehen - prima! Handtücher und Wechselbettwäsche waren ausreichend vorhanden. Alles macht einen sehr guten und sauberen Eindruck. In Empfang genommen wurden wir von Vassilis Großmutter, die leider lange auf uns warten musste, da wir am Flughafen Probleme mit der Mietwagenfirma hatten. Dennoch hat sie uns sehr herzlich willkommen geheißen und uns während unseres Urlaubs mit Selbstgebackenem und Wein versorgt. DANKE!!! Vassilis selbst war leider nicht vor Ort, stand aber jederzeit via airbnb oder Telefon zur Verfügung. Das Haus ist Ideal für Urlauber, die Ruhe suchen. Im Ort befinden sich ein paar Tavernen, die aber im April nur selten geöffnet hatten. Leider gibt es keinen Laden, in dem man sich mit Lebensmitteln versorgen kann. Man muss schon nach Nippos (im April noch geschlossen) oder nach Vrysses fahren. Auf ein Auto ist man aber ohnehin angewiesen. Die Straßen sind allerdings sehr schmal und steil. Zum nächstgelegen Strand in Georgioupolis fährt man ca. 20 Minuten. Ein ideales und schönes Urlaubsziel für alle, die Kreta mal anders, fernab vom Tourismus erleben wollen.

  • Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cette maison à la campagne, pleine de charme, très propre et très fonctionnelle ( lave linge, lave vaisselle, wifi ). Une fois habitué à la vie nocturne de nos amis les bêtes (coqs, brebis, chiens), nous avons très vite pris nos marques loin du tourisme de masse. La petite Taverne en contrebas de la maison, les petits commerces de Vryses à 10 mn de là ont contribué à de très agréables vacances. Que dire de l'hospitalité de notre hôte et de ces nombreux produits locaux qui nous attendaient, merc(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) beaucoup à Stelios et sa femme pour toute cette générosité !

  • Stelios and his team welcomed us very warmly. They donated fruit, local products and gifts! The house is very characteristic, spacious and fully restored to new. Tzitzifes is a village surrounded by olive trees, typical cretan. At 50 meters from the house is a tavern where you can eat well at very low price. I highly recommend the hospitality of Stelios. Thanks Stelios.

  • Stelios and his wife Vaso are amazing hosts. They met us in a village 5 km from a house and led with a car. House was very tidy and clean and there's everything you need in kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. They don't speak english but they came with a friend who speaks english fluently, so there's no problem with communication (we communicate in english by email) :) Around house is garden with hundred year old olive trees, flowers, thyme, rosmarine, and oregano. Inside there is a fireplace and dry wood. We rented a car and came there from Chania airport witch is 30 min. away. In front of the house is private car parking with enough space for 2 cars. House is perfect for two families.We've been there with our 1,3 year old son, and he was playing all the time in the garden. Just 1 min away is Taverna Tzitzifia with good food (we tried ) House is in a village on the foothills of the White Mountains. No tourists around only silence, fresh air, sheeps, goats, roosters, dogs, cats and lovely neighbours. Stelios and Vaso, thank you very much for your attention to us wich made our hollidays so comfortable. Thank you for olive oil, oranges, lemons, honey, raki, cookies and everything else. You are smiling so much and for us this is the impresion of all cretan people. We wish you a lot of guests in your house! Best regards from Vilnius

  • This house is beyond perfect. Even before arriving I was in love with this place; driving up through the most incredible countryside and beautiful traditional villages, it was clear that we were heading to somewhere very special. Both Stelios and his wife Vasso were there to meet us and had brought us numerous, incredible gifts of produce from their garden, traditional cretan rusks and biscuits, honey, raki, olive oil and delicious home made pies. They must be the amongst the kindest and most welcoming people I've ever met and it was an honour to have been allowed to stay at their house and meet them. The house itself is beautiful, I don't think the pictures do it justice. Full of character yet recently renovated so with all modern conveniences the property sits in beautiful grounds with stunning old olive trees that were heavy with olives when we visited. The surroundings are beautiful and the views from the terraces to die for. We loved just sitting outside, listing to the tinkling of the goats bells, watching birds of prey swoop and chasing lizards around the terrace (my kids loved these!). The house is in a beautiful, quiet, traditional village, but also has a tavern next door which is about as authentic as you can get, with lovely food (try the lamb coooked on the wood fire - it's amazing!). A short drive away is the bigger village/small town of Vrissez which is very green and pretty and has all the facilities you need. We had lots of plans of places we wanted to see for our trip to Crete, but, apart from walking the Imbros Gorge, we ended staying around the house with a few trips to Vrissez for supplies. This place is so incredible lovely and special that it seemed a shame to spend time anywhere else! My only regret about this place is that we left Stelios an Vasso with a bit of a problem to sort (which was my fault) and I was gutted as both they and their home are so wonderful. They were kind and gracious with us about the issue though, and are honestly the most remarkable and welcoming people. This property gave us a little taste of heaven - thank you so much Stelios and Vasso.xxxx

  • The place is very clean and with all the comfort you need. Stelios and his wife are very friendly and welcome you with some food from their garden. The garden and terrace have wonderfull places to sit and relax in the sun while you hear the sheep grazing in the hills below. It is a very relaxing and great place to spend you holidays in Crete!

    Margit2017-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • The house is fantastic, quiet, into the olives trees and small villages. The kitchenand the bathroom are very equippeds, the stars in the night are a big show! Thank you Stelios.retno is near, the sea also.

  • (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)+ Календарь Веб ещё Отправленные (без темы) K Ksenia Zitzer кому: kseniadzhu(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) мин. назад Подробнее... Hello everyone! Our family had a great holiday in old stone mansion Tzitzifes from 15.06.2017 till 16.07.2017. And I can tell it is the  best vacation which we had! The first two weeks we (two adults and two 4 yeared kids) enjoyed of all house places, then my  parents came. Together all of us accommodated very comfortably. The house is very convenient, spacious, with all necessary  things for most exacting people and people with small children. The spacious terassa is suitable for cozy breakfasts and  warm dinners under the shade of the illuminated trees. On the second floor there is also a terassa directly under the open  sky, there it is so good to lie here and  look at stars! There is no conditioner in the house but because it made of stones and there are  many fans here, it is not a problem even  in +37. The  ceiling fan at the second floor doesn't work at that time and it is the only one minus of all this  beautiful house! Also on the second floor is very creaking floor but it did not confuse us because my parents only  slept there, all the time we were on the first floor. The back house place is ideal for a grill and small  talkings with wine when children fell asleep, we often made fire and  sat there in the warm evenings under cicadas sound. There was no case that we need something, and we cant find it or use it in the house - we had everything! Stelios and his  dear wife are one of most charming people we met in Crete. Every week he brought  us clean sheets and towels and so tasty  home vegetables, fruits, eggs, sweets and games for children. By the way  when we came first day we found out the small  kids playground near the beautiful olive tree. Stelios makes advances in any requests, always in touch and helps. He  immediately agreed to our late check-out in our last day on Crete without surcharges, thank him very much for it! There is  a home tavern in 50 metres near the house . If you want to have tasty and not expencive dinner, funny communication to the  charming tavern owner Nikos, so welcome to Tzitzifia! The location of the house is ideal - you can go to the sandy wide beach by the car near 17 minutes, to the Lidl  supermarket 30 minutes,to the next village with bread, milk,fruits etc is 6 minutes of driving. Take the car and see the  best beaches and places on Crete - its amazing! The old stone mansion Tzitzifes is Far from noise and tourists spots, this  house became for us the best vacation place and made all our family so happy this summer!Thank you Stelios!

  • Excellente adresse, quel souvenir! La maison est adorable, décorée avec goût et d'une propreté impeccable. Accueil très chaleureux, on s'est senti comme invités par des amis de longue date: des produits locaux à notre disposition (ah le miel, les oranges, les feuilletés faits maison au fromage... quel délice!), petits savons et shampoings à base d'olive, le parasol fourni pour la plage, un vrai souci du détail et la gentillesse des propriétaires: bref, un accueil digne d'un hôtel 5 étoiles! Grand merci Stelios de la part de nous 6!

    Giannis Mansion is a stone made Cretan manor house stone built which holds onto what is left of the Cretan traditional architectural style. It is constructed with rectangular chiseled (URL HIDDEN) has an interior living space of 65 square meters. It's decorated and furnished with simplicity with traditional Cretan handmade furniture and antiques, reflecting the personal taste of its current owner. Balconies and barbeque are located in a well manicured lush garden, surrounded by palm trees, bougainvilleas, orange trees and olive groves, that fill the air with their exquisite scents providing a comfortable, tranquil, relaxed environment for the guests. Our Mansion can accommodate up to 3 persons. There are 1 bedrooms, 1 bathrooms, 1 dining room, a large fully equipped kitchen, internet free of charge, T.V & private parking .The windows and balconies give a panoramic view of the historical and one of the most picturesque villages in Crete Embrosneros.The large kitchen table is always full of traditional homemade specialties & sweets. I have the full management of the Mansion and knowing everything about it and the areas where it is located. My aim is to help the guests to relax and have the best experience on their holidays with 24/7 service providing advice for all the matters during their stay. Location : Nearest Airport : 40Km (Chania Airport) Nearest Port : 30Km (Souda Port) Chania City Center : 35km Nearest Sandy Beach : 10km (Georgioupolis Beach) Located between Crete's western prefectures of Chania and Rethymno, the House will allow you to explore the entire west and beyond. Renting a car is essential, as the village is not serviced by public transport. However, the distance from the House to the main highway Chania-Rethymno is just 5 km. Our stone made mansion located in a small but lively village, away from the busy and crowded tourist zones, you can enjoy the abundant sunshine of Crete in our secluded and secure setting by the garden, but also discover the local traditions and breath really fresh air in the foothills of the magnificent White mountains of Crete. Many interesting walks exist around the village in the unique region of Apokoronas. Alternatively, you are within a 10 minutes drive from the nearest sandy beach to enjoy your swim!. Rent a car is recommented
  • Lovely mansion with a fantastic mountain view and really nice people!

  • We had a wonderful stay at the stone house. The village is lovely and I can highly recommend everyone to make use of the fireplace- we had a lovely barbecue there!

  • Es war ein wirklich toller Aufenthalt in diesem traumhaften Haus! Wir kommen gerne wieder

    Jörg2017-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • My sister and I had a wonderful 4 days in this delightful accommodation: a charming, traditional cottage which is very comfortable and well equipped. One of the best features is being able to sit on the terrace overlooking the valley - so quiet and peaceful. The cottage is in a beautiful area with lots of lovely villages to explore plus being near to Georgioupolis where one can swim. Arrival and departure went smoothly - when we phoned him, Nikolaos arranged for us to be shown the way to the house and later answered any queries we had by text which was fine. We would love to return and thoroughly recommend Stone Built Mansion to all!

    Gail2017-07-22T00:00:00Z

  • We had a lovely time staying in the stone mansion in the mountains. We were greeted by our host and he showed us the way to the village, on arriving there we were met with a warm welcome a dour host had left a generous array of local food and drinks for us to enjoy. The house itself is amazing in a beautiful location, the village is small and locals are all friendly. Our hosts couldn't do enough to make us feel so at home. Would Feinstein recommend staying in this beautiful house in a beautiful park of Crete

  • Zoi was really nice and welcoming. The place is picturesque and perfect if you have a good car. The tavernas nearby are also amazing!

    Antoine2017-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Petite déception à l'arrivée quand nous avons constater que nous avions accès qu'à la partie basse de la maison (car 2 adultes + 1 bébé), même si celle-ci état suffisante pour 3 personnes. Notre séjour c'est par la suite très bien passé, et la maison est agréable et confortable, avec des extérieures extraordinaires (et sécurisé pour les petits !). Zoi nous a très bien reçu et a été disponible et présente lors du séjour !!! Vraiment une très belle expérience que de vivre dans ce petit village. Il est malgré tout suffisamment proche de la route national pour facilement accéder à tous les sites remarquables de la région. Small disappointment on arrival when we find out that we only had access to the lower part of the house (for 2 adults + 1 baby), even if it was big enough for 3 people. Our stay was very well, and the house is nice and cozy, with amazing outdoor (and safe for kids!). Zoi received us very well and she was present and available during the stay !!! Really a great experience to live for few days in this small village. It is still close enough to the national road for easy access to all the landmarks of the region.

    Jérôme2016-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Zoi. The villa is charming and easily accommodated our group of seven adults. The decor was lovely, and the house is well stocked. The location in a remote village outside Chania is a bit difficult to access, but it is well worth the effort. A car is a must, but you will want one any way to explore the island. Zoi is a most hospitable host - she answered all of our questions quickly and thoughtfully. She even baked a cake for our arrival - such a nice touch to make us really feel at home. Her recommendations of things to do in the area were excellent. We especially enjoyed our trip to Almyrida Beach. The pool and deck were delightful. If you're looking for a true getaway from urban life and an authentic experience of rural Crete, Villa Zoi is the place for you!

    paul2017-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • La maison de Zoi est située dans un village. C'est donc la vie villageoise qui vous entoure. C'est une autre expérience à vivre que la Crète touristique et ses stations de bord de mer. La maison est très bien équipée, et Zoi est en mesure de répondre à toutes les questions.

    jacques2014-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great holiday in Villa Zoi.Everything was ready when we arrived to villa and Zoi was waiting for us.Zoi was very helpful and she baked us some traditional pastries.Villa was really nice,quiet and clean with traditional decoration.Our son loved the pool and we spent there lot of time.There was many animals like chickens and lambs near the villa so you can feel the real Crete.

    Essi2014-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • La villa Zoi a beaucoup d'atouts. Elle est située dans un village typique avec une vue totalement dégagée et un environnement reposant. Elle est proche de points d'intérêts culturels et de jolies plages. L'accueil de Zoi est très chaleureux, la maison est confortable et bien équipée, et la piscine est fort agréable. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour et la recommanderons.

    Philippe2016-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Zoi was a great host - she was waiting for us at 10 pm at night to welcome us and show us around. She has a beautiful home which has everything that you need and it is up in the hills with a lovely view, in a typical Cretan village. The pool was great for cooling down in the 30 deg + temperatures. It was not far from a village with an excellent Taverna and then another village with great supermarkets and everything that you could need. We got Zoi and her friend to cook us a meal one night and it was really worthwhile - really good and we got to experience the cooking and then of course the eating! Highly recommend to anyone - it is out of the way but that is what we love!

All'esterno c'è un cortile, circondato da ulivi e fiori colorati, così come una bella piscina comune.
  • EXQUISITE VILLA! My friends and I had the most wonderful time at Villa Felenia. It was my first experience with Airbnb and it set the bar very high! The upper housing was actually better than what we expected from the photos, everything was very clean, the kitchen is modern and fully equipped. The bedrooms are very comfortable, very nice accomodations and services (fresh towels were disposed on each bed and the owner had set a nice a basket of several local products on the kitchen's table) Many storages and a dressing in the master bedroom, two terraces... The pool is a delightful place to relax, the location is very quiet and the villa is surrounded by mountains. The host and his mother (who welcomed us and toured the house) are wonderful people, very kind and helpful. (They both speak french) I would advise the future tenants to rent a car so they can travel around this beautiful island, and be independant for errands. But if you're checking this place out, don't hesitate one second: i can only highly recommand this 5 stars villa for peaceful and luxurious holidays.

  • Spent a magnificent 10 days in August 2017 and celebrated my birthday in the apartment of Felenia House. Everything was delightful. The house is excellent! Everything that can be needed from the appliances and utensils is available, the barbecue area and the swimming poll are amazing. A quiet and secluded place away from the roads. Sifis is gold! Met in time, everything showed, advised where to go, always friendly and in touch. Sifis many thanks for the cordial welcome and wonderful rest! I would definitely recommend Sifis house to my friends and acquaintances.

  • L'appartamento è esattamente come descritto nell'annuncio, pulito e accogliente con tutto quello che serve. Eravamo in 2, quindi anche molto spazioso. Si trova in una località interna e in alto quindi anche nei giorni più caldi qui si sta benissimo. La comunicazione è stata perfetta e all'arrivo la moglie del proprietario ci è venuta incontro per consegnarci le chiavi e mostrarci la casa. La casa dispone anche di uno spazio comune dove si può mangiare e una piccola piscina. Il paesino in cui si trova l'appartamento è piccolo ma molto carino con un ristorante dietro l'angolo dove si mangia molto bene su una terrazza con una magnifica vista e si spende davvero poco. Il paese si trova a circa 15 minuti di macchina dalla strada principale che collega Retimno a Chania e che quindi consente di raggiungere le principali località abbastanza velocemente. Per una vacanza all'insegna della tranquillità e del relax consiglio vivamente di soggiornare qui!

  • This is better than it looks. Nicely away from city or town noise. Has everything you need, clean, great patio area to eat and/or relax by the pool too. Aircon works well, and Gabrillis will meet you at the Shell petrol station and take you to the village. The taverna in the village is only a minutes walk and the food and friendly service there is so good that we ate there all three nights.

    HOLIDAYS IN CRETE CHANIA VAFES
    24 recensioni
    1 Apartment 2/3 persons, with 2 spaces (35 m2): living room with sofa bed (sleeps 1), 1 bathroom (bath or shower). Upstairs: 1 bedroom (twin beds), possibility for an extra bed for a child up to 10 years.
    The quiet village of Vafes was a location where many conflicts between the rebellious Cretans and the Ottoman army took place, in the various battles for the independence of the island. 300 meters from the village, do not forget to visit the cave of Krionerida. At 3.5 km there is Vrises, a charming little village where there are restaurants, cafes and shops for anything you might need. In the area there are many small churches, the monastery of Agion Asomaton and very beautiful villages on the slopes. Georgioupolis beach is about 8 km from the village of Vafes.
  • I stayed with a friend almost one week at this beatiful and traditional cretean house. The host lives nearby and is very nice and hospitable. The house is located in the mountains between Chania and Rethimo. It is therefore a good starting point if you are exploring west Crete by car. However, the small village of Vafes offers you opportunities for dinner and a minimarket for groceries. To sum it up: I totally recommend the place.

    Alan2015-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time in patriko residence : the house was big, very clean and well equiped (including baby equipment - we were traveling with our baby ) with a charming shady terrasse in front of it. Manolis and his wife are so nice and helpful, they made our stay absolutely perfect! the village of vafes is really nice (it has 2 cafes, 1 taverna and 2 shops) and well located just 20 minutes from the beach yet in a very typical environment. Our stay in patriko residence was the best part of our holidays in crete and we totally recommend the place.

    Emilie2016-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Mr Manolis and his wife, were very kind and helpful! Great hospitality and warm place to stay in a peaceful and beautiful village. I will choose again in any other chance!

  • En los apartamentos encontramos: paz, tranquilidad, contacto con la naturaleza, silencio, aislados del turismo de masas, etc. Los anfitriones són unos excelentes facilitadores de la comunicacion con ellos mismo y con los demas huespedes que pueda haber en los apartamentos. Vàries veces nos invitaron a cafè, dacos, dulces elaborados por Eva: "buenisimos". Si buscais estos atractivos no dudeis en ir a sus apartamentos.

  • Si vous souhaitez vivre l'expérience d'un appartement pittoresque, coupé de la foule touristique allez faire un tour à Vafes chez Patriko. Nous avons reçu un accueil très chaleureux de notre hôte. L'appartement est frais (un plus en été) et très joli et fonctionnel. Deux chambres à l'étage avec salle de bain privée et une petite cour ensoleillée pour le petit déjeuner. / If you wish to live the experience of a picturesque apartment, cut by the tourist crowd go to take a walk to Vafes at Patriko. We received a very warm welcome of our host. The apartment is fresh (one more in summer) and very attractive and functional. Two rooms in the floor with private bathroom and a small court brightened up for the breakfast.

    Agathe2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Manolis & his family (including dog & cat ;) ) own this beautiful house in the village of Vafes. They made us feel welcome the minute we arrived and that feeling never left. Lovely people, good conversations (ask them anything you want), peace, a beautiful house & view of the mountains of Crete and great hospitality summons our stay up. The village (Vafes) is also worth checking out with lovely rural taverna's, old houses and beautiful nature.

    Olga2016-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • To cut a long story short. Fantastic host! Fantastic place! The apartment offers almost a medieval feel. It is very comfortable and well designed. The area is very pleasant. It is easy to get to many places from the village. Local tavernas (especially the one closest the apartment) are recommended as they offer good quality food and some local specialities.

    Szymon2016-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Un lieu paisible et calme dans un petit village dans les terres mais à proximité des plages en voiture. Maison propre, confortable et atypique. nous avons été accueilli par un couple adorable et de bon conseil pour les visites! Idéal pour des vacances en couple

    ", Spaziosa villa splendida, con vista e facilmente raggiungibile della spiaggia"
    2km from Vrisses, high up on a terraced hillside in a remarkably peaceful setting, near the tiny village of Philipos, Villa Artemis enjoys superb, panoramic views over green and verdant olive groves and rolling wooded countryside to the distant vivid blue sea. Built on three levels, the villa provides ideal accommodation for larger families with a generous living area and air conditioning in all four bedrooms. The well furnished open plan living area is notable for its comfortable seating, with a choice of two leather sofas around the large coffee table by the fireplace. On the far side of the room is a formal dining area and then the well equipped kitchen with all mod cons including a small dish-washer. The single bedroom is on this ground floor level. At first floor level are two double and one twin bedroom each with its own private terrace/balcony and sharing a family bathroom. There is also a shower room on the ground floor. Patio doors from the living room open out to a covered terrace overlooking the attractive 9m x 4m pool with lawned gardens to the side and a number of shady olive trees, plus a purpose built barbecue with a tiled patio area offering the same wonderful open vistas of the countryside below. For wining and dining there's a good choice of tavernas in Vrisses but for a simple meal and a touch of real local colour, visit the cafenion in the tiny village of Maza just 5 minute drive down the hill from Philipos and already a favourite with our customers staying in Villa Artemis. If you would prefer not to stray far from your lovely surroundings then Despina, the owner of Villa Artemis lives locally and will happily prepare and deliver a Cretan Dish or two at a reasonable cost. Georgioupolis with its long sandy beach and a huge selection of tavernas is a further 5 minutes drive. There is also a single bedroom on the ground floor.

    Georgioupolis & Vrisses Although Georgioupolis with its lovely sandy beaches is now a thriving seaside resort it still retains a pleasing rural ambience and leisurely pace of life. Numerous tavernas and cafes surround the bustling village square whilst in little side streets you will find a number of small shops selling jewellery and local pottery. Down by the river the fishermen with their boats and nets add a tangy whiff of the sea to the village atmosphere and here it is possible to hire a boat and paddle upstream towards Lake Kournas spotting turtles and fish as they drift by. Taking the old road out of Georgioupolis it is just 6 kms to the village of Vrisses, a main stopping point for buses to the south coast harbour town of Chora Sfakion, where ferries ply between Loutro, and far flung Paleohora as well as Agia Roumeli at the foot of the Samaria gorge. Blue Flag International Georgioupolis (Perastikos) beach is a Blue Flag Beach In Vrisses, huge Plane trees line the road where you will find mini-markets, a bank and a bakery (do try the cheese pies). Of a morning time this is a bustling little town, but by mid-day the pace slows and the tavernas spread their tables out towards the banks of the river Voutakis, where you can relax in the shade and enjoy a bowl of creamy local yogurt and honey, for which this area is famous. Neil & Bev - - May 2017 "Wonderful views across the valley all the way round to the White Mountains. Very relaxing and peaceful. Freelance were really friendly and helpful, too, thanks! Yamas."
  • Everything was perfect the house was very big and beautifully decorated. The freelance team gave us a lot of information about everything directions from the airport, local tavernas, supermarkets, beautiful beaches. Anything you could possibly need. The house was clean the view was amazing we are very satisfied with our choice.

    Dimitris2016-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • We spent very good and very pleasant time in Villa Artemis ! Everything is perfect for a family. The swimming pool and the leaving room are big. The garden is nice. We were 8 ( 4 adults, 4 children ) during 3 days and the house was confortable enough. In addition, the service of Freelance Holiday is great : next time in Crete we will go in one of their houses again.

    Fabrice2017-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic villa that lived up to all expectations! Very clean, comfortable and private. Close to villages for supplies and within easy reach of Chania and surrounds. The management team (specifically Diane) were very helpful and professional.

    Nicky2016-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is clean and the interior decoration is very tastefully. There is everything you need in the villa. the neigbourhood is quiet. to the next village with restaurant and supermarket it´s 30minutes to walk or 5 minutes by car. the pool is very nice and clean. housekeeping works fine and friendly. you have much in the villa with all the bedrooms for many people. very big living room and kitchen.

    Stefan2017-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is amazing and has many places to set and take dinner or breakfast while enjoying the wonderful view of the mountains and green areas. We spent our honeymoon there and we were very happy with it. We do recommend this villa to everyone. The only thing we found diffucult was the curved sharp slope road to the villa; but we get used to it after passing it 3 times. The swimming pool was clean and the cleaning is done periodically using a timer. Although there is a villa just next to villa artemis, but the trees hides the place and makes it private. Although there is a road just beside the villa, but almost no body passes in this road. We saw only one car during the full week of stay. So, we enjoyed good level of privacy. The villa has a barbecue and a closeby seating for eating. Diane was very helpful; she called us to describe how to reach the place. And surprised us with welcome drinks for our honeymoon and snacks; she also helped us in finding joyful tours in crete.

    Ahmed2016-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • The host made us feel really welcome, the information given before and on arrival of our stay was brilliant. There was a welcome food gift with wine, beer, crisps and biscuits that was unexpected and very kind. The accommodation was amazing, with lots of lovely details and was as described and photographed. The air con in the bedrooms was a relief on the hot nights and the pool was so luxurious with plenty of loungers and seating (there was a sofa and chairs outside that I don't think was photographed, lovely and shaded for reading a book). We ate outside every morning and the two dining areas were great. The BBQ was an excellent facility too, with a great view. We bought our shopping from the bakery, butcher and mini markets in the nearest village Vryses where all the locals were really friendly and there was a lovely shaded eating area by the stream/fountains with a choice of a few restaurants/cafes, our daughter loved running over the little bridges and watching the geese. We hired a car and drove through the mountains to many beautiful beaches, our highlight was Elafonisi beach and also Chania old town and harbour were beautiful with lovely shops and restaurants. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Villa Artemis or the area we stayed in, we would love to come back. Thank you Freelance-Holidays & Diana.

    For authentic Crete lovers, far from the crowd, nice house in Vafes, Apokoronas (Chania) , in the heart of the village. Half way between Chania (35 kms) and Rethymno (35 kms), less than an hour of the south coast and 10 kms from the sea in Georgioupoulis, Vafes (in greek Βαφές) is ideally situated to visit the island ! But also, from the village, there are many walks in the White Mountains and generous nature .
    Small and fresh independant house of 35 sqm on shaded courtyard with one bedroom, bathroom and wc and living room with equipped kitchen
    Vafes is a pretty traditional village with 2 cafes, a little grocery and a restaurant. 3 kilometers away is the village of Vrisses with all services .
  • The house is very cute and cozy, the yard is pittoresque and the village is very beautiful, a perfect choice if you want to see the other Crete, non massive touristic, relaxed and with such a strong natural scenery.

We enjoyed walking to the bakery and around the village and sitting on the balcony. We would love to stay in the Stone Maisonette again!

  • This wonderful stone house on the outskirts of the village of Emprosneros is charming. The decor is authentic and delightful. We stayed in winter and for a summer place this would be magic. Everything was good. The family made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We were welcomed with home made raki, olive oil, bread, eggs and oranges. It was unusually cold even for January and the family supplied us with plenty of wood so we were able to enjoy evenings sitting around a delightful log fire.

  • We've had a wonderful stay in the stone house and Nikolaos was very accommodating. The house is very well equipped, and the location is great if you wish to stay in beautiful and quiet countryside, away from the tourist crowds. I would recommend his place and would stay again in future.

  • Cutest house ever! Thank you so much to Nikolaos and family for being wonderful Airbnb hosts. Highly responsive, clean place and an overall genuine Airbnb experience. I would love to stay a month here! I'll be back :)

  • This house is in an amazing location that has to be seen to be believed: so close to the main highway but in such beautiful and peaceful countryside. The place has such character too. It feels like an authentic rural Cretan dwelling. Nikolaos is a very helpful and communicative host, and Maria and Manousos gave us a warm welcome even though we arrived quite late at night, and were on hand to sort out a couple of queries we had during our stay. I would thoroughly recommend staying here. You will need a car, though.

    Restored traditional stonehouse in the village of Tzitzifes at the foothills of White Mountains, a place with rich flaura and natural landscape that you can enjoy from the house balcony. The house can sleep up to 5 people (2 bedrooms - 3 beds and 1 living room with sofa) - has two charming bedrooms and a loft and is fully-equiped to accomodate all your needs. A warm welcome and big smiles are waiting for you along with some treats! Grandma Vaggelio will make sure of that.
    A house with history, its construction is dated back to 1800's. The decoration was meant to retain the traditional elements of a Cretan house. Consists of two autonomous appartments, one at the ground floor and one at the upper. The current listing regards the upper floor appartment with balcony. About the balcony: Unrestricted eastern view of the valley that reaches down to the sea. A wooden shed covers sufficiently the balcony area which is illuminated until around 11.30 am. If you wake up before that and want to sit at the balcony, there is also a tent you can use to provide more shade. It is ideal to have your lunch at the balcony, at that time it is shady and the summer breeze mprovides just the right temper. About the kitchen: You will find all amenities and kitchenware you need in the kitchen, toaster, coffee machine for filter coffee, mixer etc. and is pretty much ready to test your cooking skills. Steam cooker is also an extra choice for healthy cooking (for those who prefer to use it over the stove). Use our oil and basic spices. About the living room: Single and large sofas, television set furniture as well as dining table and coat hanger behind the door. Decoration is blended with local elements, along with a traditional furnace for the cold days of winter. Photos of our ancestors that built the house can be seen in the house, to remind us of the history of this house. Now about the bedrooms: Warm and charming and double bedroom, sunny and airy. The wood and stone surrounding the room along with the old stove area (used now as a closet) is quite the spectacle. A wooden stair inside the room guides to a loft that has an extra bed and closet. The single bedroom across the haul has an eastern view (like the balcony). One extra person can sleep in the sofa-bed in the living room (removing the pillows from the sofa). Sheets, towels and blankets are of course available inside each room with a closet. About the bathroom: Hair dryer is available, while the bathroom is already equiped for your basic needs. Located in the village of Tzitzifes, it is exactly between Chania and Rethymno, and is ideal for those who want to explore the vast island of Creta (well just the counties of Chania and Rethymno for one summer...) or relax and enjoy the tranquility if the village.
    Tzitzifes is a peaceful village at the foothills of the White Mountains and consists of two neighbourhoods seperated by a creek, where an old stone fountain is built (very cool temper even during the summer - must visit!). The whole area is a big forestland, ideal for hiking or mountain-bike addicts and you get a good view of the surrounding area, just by walking a few hundred meters up the mountain. Two good local taverns (Rizitiko and Tzitzifia), a kafenion - mini market and three cheese factories where you can buy local goods exist in the village, and Fres which is the nearby village and is reachable on foot, offers a bakery shop. Vrusses (10 min drive from Tzitzifes) is a small town which provides all basic services you could need (including super-market, gas station, post office, bus station with multiple routes, taxis and other shops). Finally, Georgioupoli, Kaluvaki (smaller beach next to Georgioupoli with a river flowing into it), Kaluves, Almurida are beautiful sandy beaches close to Tzitzifes - 15 min drive.
  • Noi eravamo una famiglia di 5 persone, raggiungere la casa non è stato difficile grazie al navigatore, però si trova in una zona isolata; la spiaggia più vicina è a 20 minuti di macchina. L ' Host è stato molto gentile e disponibile, ci ha accolto sua nonna molto simpatica e gentile, l' unico problema è che parla solo il greco e quindi farsi capire risulta difficile,ma per qualsiasi problema vassillis è molto disponibile e risponde immediatamente al telefono.

  • Cette petite maison de village est très agréable à vivre, nous avons apprécié spécialement les petits déjeuners et dîners sur la terrasse qui donne sur la mer. Le village de Tzitzifes est très bien relié à la grande route qui dessert tout le nord de la Crète. L'appartement est agréablement rénové, bien agencé et décoré avec goût ! Cette maison a une âme, ses hôtes sont charmants et accueillants et vous y passerez des vacances authentiques !

  • I didn't personally meet Vassilis, but we talked on the telephone and he was very kind, friendly and greatly helpfully. We also meet his family and I can say only: amazing people, we love them. We appreciate your help and we are really grateful. The house is beautiful, very clean and specious - just perfect for the family. I highly recommend this place and I hope one day we will back to the Tzitzifes!!! :)

  • We found the house very traditional and nice decorated! The only thing which we did not like was that the house is to share. The house is divided in 2 parts, each has his own kitchen , bathroom with small shower, bedrooms and living . We were staying in the upper part with balcony and the other guests had the ground floor with the patio. But if you are both in the house, you can hear each other talking , so you are afraid to make noice. That should be mentioned in the description so guests now in advance. But for the rest was everything OK and the grandmother was there to guide us on our arrival. Wonderful women, but speaks only Greek! Lucky that Vassilis is always in contact with the telephone for any help you need. He gave us a lot of suggestions to go to.

  • The second floor (with balcony) had a lovely view and was great to sit and relax during our stay. The house is a traditional greek house as mentioned in the post. Vassilis was not there to greet us but we were able to reach him when we needed to. His grandma is a lovely lady. We also appreciated the many suggestions for nearby places that Vassilis provided. We would love to stay there again. Thanks V!
