The villa is about 125sqm in size. There are two twin bedrooms, one opens to the front terrace, while the other has air conditioning and a large veranda, and both share a bathroom with bathtub/WC. The third double bedroom has air conditioning and is en-suite with shower/WC, and washing machine.

In the surrounding countryside there are many trees, such as olive trees and orange trees and various plants giving a feeling of peace and relaxation that guarantee unforgettable holidays.

Die Zimmertüren sind durchweg verzogen.

  • 3 of 5

Die Küchenzeile ist stark verschmutzt und müsste eine Generalüberholung erhalten.

Es wurde eine überzogene Außenbeleuchtung installiert, im Innern, speziell der Küche tastet man jedoch fast im Dunklen.

Ansonsten als Relaxurlaub ok, Auto jedoch dringend erforderlich.

Schöner Urlaub im Norden von Kreta

  • 5 of 5

Nach anfänglichen Schwierigkeiten, das Objekt zu finden (ging dann aber mit Nachfragen bei Ortskundigen) waren wir sehr positiv überrascht. Das Haus ist sehr schön gelegen und entspricht genau der Beschreibung im Inserat. Hier können problemlos 6 Personen übernachten. Aufgrund der jahrszeitbedingten Temperaturen haben wir den ungeheizten Pool zwar nicht oft benutzt, aber man hat von dort eine spektakuläre Aussicht auf die Umgebung und das Meer. Das Housekeeping ist sehr ordentlich und die Unterkunft wird zweimal in der Woche gereinigt. Das Einzige, was ein wenig besser sein könnte: Es gibt eine schier unüberschaubare Anzahl von Lampen und Leuchten, aber das "Wohnzimmer und insbesondere die Küchenzeile lässt sich nicht wirklich hell beleuchten. Das stört ein wenig, wenn man sich selbst versorgt. Alles in allem ist aber dieses Objekt sehr zu empfehlen. Der Ort ist sehr übersichtlich, aber es gibt ein hervorragendes Restaurant im Museum. Schnell sind viele sehenswere Orte in der Umgebung zu erreichen. Das Anmieten eines KFZ ist allerdings unabdingbar.

Tolles kretisches Ferienhaus mit traumhaften Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

So wie auf den Bildern sieht es im Haus aus. Es ist nicht nagelneu und modern, sondern hat einen tollen kretischen Charme mit viel Naturstein und Holzmöbeln. Alles ist intakt und funktionstüchtig, ob Herd, Geschirrspüler oder Waschmaschine. Jedes Schlafzimmer hat eine eigene Terrasse. Das Grundstück ist links und rechts von Olivenhainen umgeben. Ein toller Ort um zu entspannen. Der Pool (großes tiefes Becken und angrenzender Kinderpool) liegen überhalb des Hauses umgeben von der Terrasse. Schon ab morgens gibt es den ganzen Tag dort Sonne. Von dort sieht man das Meer wunderbar - wir haben dort immer gefrühstückt und auch abends den Sonnenuntergang genossen. Auf dieser Terrasse steht ein großer Eßtisch (geeignet für 8 Personen). Auf der überdachten Nordseitenterrasse ist ebenfalls ein großer Eßtisch mit 8 Sitzgelegenheiten.

Bis Sfakaki benötigt man mit dem Auto ca. 5 Minuten, also fernab vom Rummel und nah dran für alle weiteren Erledigungen.

Die Eigentümerin Roula ist sehr nett. Sie kommt vorbei und kümmert sich um den Pool, gibt Reisetipps und spricht sehr gut Deutsch. Wir wurden sehr herzlich von ihr empfangen, obwohl es weit nach Mitternacht war!

Unsere ganze Familie (inkl. 2 Kinder) hat sich im Haus sehr wohl gefühlt und wir würden auf alle Fälle wieder das Haus buchen!

Im Ort gleich um die Ecke zu Fuß ist ein tolles kleines Restaurant Poliou House (Familienbetrieb). Von außen nicht als Restaurant zu erkennen (auch ein Museum ist intergriert). Aber der tolle Innenhof und die Atmosphäre und das leckere Essen sind einmalig. Jeden Donnerstag ist Kretischer Abend mit Musik und Tanz. Ein ganz tolles Mit-Mach-Erlebnis, denn da tanzen alle mit!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay there.., pictures do not reflect all the house commodities inside.

It is a modern building in a traditional style, spacious bedrooms, bathrooms and living room.., 3 outside sitting areas including pool area.., olive beautiful views.

The owner was very helpful and nice.

Very nice quiet village not far from an excellent traditional tavern.

Thank you Roula!
