Walking Distance (100meters) to taverns and supermarkets!Great Solarium Terrace with outside Jacuzzi! within walking distance of all village facilities. Ideal for families or couples!

The space

Mamis house is a beautifully restored traditional home with all the modern amenities, combined with the local element and atmosphere of the village! It has been completely renovated recently with respect to the unique architecture and style of the old building and has become the ideal house for rest and relaxation that enchants visitors any time of the year!

It’s size makes it ideal for families or couples who want to experience the true cretan style of life in a picturesque location, characteristic of the cretan land!

Ground Floor
At the exterior of the house there is a stone-paved veranda with seating and dining area, flowers and amazing sea views!

The two storey house comprises a spacious living room, a fully equipped kitchen with dinning area, a bathroom with shower and a spacious bedroom with a small hall, ideal for relaxation and reading moments, on the ground floor.

First Floor
On the first floor there is another bedroom with a small private veranda and a hall that could accommodate an extra person, a bathroom.

To make things better, on the first floor there is a solarium terrace, featuring a great Jacuzzi tub for four people, sun beds and umbrellas, with magnificent views to the countryside and the surrounding area. Respecting the environment and trying to use alternative energy sources, our jacuzzi tub is connected with solar panels and fills up with hot water from the boiler! For that reason, in days with not enough sunshine (mainly in April and May) it may not be possible to operate. But don’t worry…in Crete there is sunshine most of the time!

All village facilities, such as taverns and mini market are within walking distance from the house!

Mamis Mansion was even lovelier than described. It's been beautifully renovated and retains many interesting, original features, whilst also fully equipped with all the mod-cons (dishwasher, air-con etc.). The hot tub was also a lovely treat! Chromonastiri itself is a beautiful village in a great location - only 20 minutes drive from Rethymno but with interesting buildings, museums and walks nearby (especially the military museum and Myli Gorge). It also has two fantastic tavernas and a shop where you can pick up essentials like freshly baked bread, eggs etc. Valia is extremely efficient and responds to queries immediately, with additional helpful suggestions as well. Also Michalis was brilliant and so welcoming, showing us around when we arrived and giving us lots of good tips about what to see, do, eat etc. This really was a perfect place to stay, both as a base from which to explore other parts of Crete and a place to simply relax and enjoy the view!

Wonderful stay in Chromonastiri, the house is nice, in a nice environment where you can walk, enjoy the sea sight, and visit the wonderful restaurants and bars in the village -which remain very quiet, though ! The food was great in both taverns. It is a great thing to be close to Rethymnon and yet in a area with mostly locals. Valia was helpful, and Mike which helped us with the house was a wonderful fellow ! We didn't miss anything... We wish we could stayed more. The house is perfect for two people or two couples.

We were met by Michael when we arrived late at night. He was very helpful, explained everything and was able to answer all our questions. We chose to stay in this spot as we prefer a quite place where we can relax, cook for ourselves and enjoy the environment. Mamis did not let us down! It is in a wonderful location in the mountains (so a car is needed) but close enough to the town of Rethymno for all your needs, and it is a great spot for exploring the rest of the island from (Chania and Heraklion are both a little over 1 hour away). We unfortunately had pretty poor weather (for April) with very strong winds, heavy rain and a cool 12 degrees, this made it difficult to heat the house - but that is so unusual for Crete!

We were met by our host at the agreed time and place and given a tour of the villa and everything explained to us. We chose this place for a 12 night stay in November because we wanted somewhere to rest that was quiet and not a normal tourist spot. This is exactly what we got. We greatly enjoyed having lunch in the only place open in Chromonastiri and taking whatever delicious local dish was on offer. I think it is a good place to stay for summer and shoulder season. Could be a little bit chilly in the winter but then most people wouldn't go there at that time. Many thanks for a nice stay and thanks for always being very prompt with email queries Valia.
