The space

In a unique environment in full contact with nature at the beautiful coastline of Crete, we offer a cozy floor to enjoy a dream vacation with lots of relaxation.

The apartment of 110 square meters is located just 150 meters from the seafront. In front of the main entrance of the apartment, straight-looking at the sea and the horizon, there is a large terrace, which is ideal to enjoy the sunrise and the sunset all year-around, while experiencing the pleasant sea breeze.

Immediately after entering the house, there is a colorful and enjoyable living room, ideal to relax, read, chat or simply enjoy good company. The living room features an American-style bar, which separates it from the kitchen, creating two completely different environments, which are however interconnected for guest convenience.

The minimalist kitchen is spacious and bright, in tune with the rest of the house. It faces the large terrace and the seafront and features large glass windows, which allow visibility into the horizon. The kitchen has a variety of appliances including a refrigerator, an oven and a microwave, which are useful for cooking.

In addition to the large terrace in front of the house, there is a second large terrace connected to the living room on the east side of the house. This terrace also has view at the seafront and is also ideal for relaxation and having meals outdoors while enjoying the beautiful landscape.
Furtherome, the house has two bedrooms ideal for hosting couples, friends, or a family with children. Both rooms are spacious and feature a double bed and two single beds. They also have heating and air conditioning. The house also features a brand new toilet with shower and ventilation as well as a clothes’ washing machine.

Surrounding the house, true nature is what you can experience. As such, large gardens where locals cultivate vegetables and fruits, and farm animals such as rabbits, goats, sheep, cats and other wildlife typical of semi-rural Cretan areas all surround the premises thus giving our guests a sample of organic products grown by the farm owners.

The house is located less than 100 meters from the national highway that connects Crete’s major cities in the north of the island. It is located just 11km from the city center of Rethymno and approximately 70 km from the international airport of Heraklion and the international airport of Chania. In order to fully enjoy your stay in the island, which features a wide array of attractions (from the beautiful Venetian cities of Rethymno and Chania, to picturesque beaches in the south of the island, to the unique Samaria Gorge, to the Minoan civilization ruins in the city of Heraklion) renting a car is highly advisable. Parking is available in front of the house and is included in the package.

We will not forget our meeting with Vangelos and his family. They advised us and made a lot of Cretan products. They are people of great kindness. The apartment is superb and the terrace with sea views is perfect for sunsets!

We had a wonderful time at the apartment. The family were very welcoming and made us feel at home. The view from the terrace overlooking the sea is spectacular and we watched many a sunset from there. The apartment has two good sized bedrooms with master en-suit and a separate w c so great for a family. The kitchen is well equipped and with some shops nearby and the produce from the farm we eat in most evenings. Highly recommended!!!

We felt very welcome in this cozy place and had two wonderful weeks with our daughter in creta . Evangelos and his parents are really wonderful people. His parents gave us fresh eggs and vegetables from the garden . They are hard working people. Our daughter had a lot of fun with the animals and the plants. It was really nice that hotel corali was near so we could go there to eat if we wanted. The appartment is really well organised so we cooked ofthen fresh food. We went to the market in rethymon on Thursday were and bought fresh stuff for cooking. There even was a highchair for our daughter which was really useful. We can really recomment this place and hope we will come back one day.

We have just returned from our holidays on Crete. We have been 2 weeks there and lived in one house with Evangelos parents. They lived on the first floor. The hosts were very friendly. They treated us with very tasty coffee and wonderful fried pies. There were vegetables, eggs, water and cookies in the refrigerator prepared for us on our arrival. It was very nice and convenient as it was evening already and there was no need to go to the shop for food for breakfast. Evangelos parents also treated us with eggs and fruits. We are very grateful for that, they are wonderful and really hard-working people. The house was as described, quite big. 2 bedrooms, kitchen and lobby were at our disposal. There were 2 big sea-view terraces, one of them was in the shadow and another very sunny. The sea was close to the house. We rented a car and visited Chania and Rethymno as well as the south coast - Plakias, Matala, Kalamaki, and also Aptera, Eleftera.... It wasn’t our first time on Crete, but only this time and thanks to our communication with Evangelos parents we realized that the main Crete treasure are kind, open-minded and very hospitable people. And they are also very brave as we understood after visiting Arkadi monastery. Many thanks, Evangelos parents! We are very happy with our vacation. We saw the Crete from a new side.

My name is Vangelis and I am 35-years old. I was born in Crete, Greece, but have been living in Barcelona, Spain over the past several years. I love to travel around the world, I like going to the movies and the theater, and I enjoy nature and good food. I am passionate about sports, water sports in particular, I am blessed that I combine my passion with my profession, which is sports medicine.
On a personal level, friendship and respect among people are very important to me. I live my life with positive thinking, a spirit of fighting and a continuous aspiration of becoming a better person. I would love to accommodate you at my house in Crete so that you can experience firsthand the beauty of my island. What this experience will offer is a journey in authentic Crete, away from touristy stereotypes, in an idyllic setting in full contact with nature and wildlife. In other words, an opportunity to relax by the beautiful sea and charge your batteries with memorable moments that will last a lifetime...
"Carpe Diem", Horace wrote in his poem... Indeed, you never know what will happen tomorrow, the future is uncertain, so come to Crete and enjoy the present like there's no tomorrow!

Welcome to paradise, welcome to Crete!
