This is a sunny, two-bedroom, 1st floor apartment in the center of Ziros Village, in Eastern Crete. There is a large livingroom with a round dining table, a separate kitchen, two bedrooms with storage and a bathroom. The house is fully equipped to accomodate 4 people and offers a small terrace and a balcony outdoor spaces. It is perfectly located to facilitate the exploration of Eastern Crete. Xerokampos village (exceptional beaches) is located within half-hour driving distance.
Ziros is a very beautiful Cretan mountain village (altitude 500m) built in amphitheatrical order, lying on the homonymous plateau. It enjoys very beautiful environment with the vineyard dominating and lies right in the middle of the easternmost part of the island Crete (equal distance from the north coast - Siteia and the south coast - Xerokampos beaches approximately half an hour by car). It is a perfect base for explorers enjoying walking tours on the E4 european path and a great number of local paths with nearby gorges such as Chametoulo towards Xerokampos (south coast) or Agia eirini towards the Libyan sea, not too far from the Minoan archaelogical site (minoan palace) with the nearby lying gorge of the dead. Very near, on the same plateau of Armenoi, Chandras, Ziros there is a beautifully restored Venetian villa (Etia) and a number of caves towards Voila, Sitanos and Karidaki.
  • This is the 2nd time I have stayed here and it's been so wonderful I've extended my stay and dont really want to go back to the UK. Anna gave me a great welcome with lovely cakes including those she made herself. Every week she gave me gifts of food and drink - fresh produce from the local farm and homemade wine and raki. Also the flat us big and very clean and Anna services ut once a week making it very homely. Anna and Lilly are always available and keen to help make your stay great. I am already thinking when I can come back again! There is a wonderful drive down the mountains to xerokambos with breathtaking views and often interrupted by heards if goats crossing the road. There are lots of great beaches and Sitia is only a half hour drive away. All in a wonderful experience again and I would highly recommend you stay here.

  • accommodation for a stage of 2 days quite correct, well located for ballads and enough for 2 see 4 people

    Thierry2019-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • We were more than satisfied.

    Jens2018-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious apartment that was exactly as advertised. Lilly was very helpful, responded quickly to my questions, and was an all around great host. Great value for the price, that I would highly recommend - if you’re looking for a pleasant village untouched by mass tourism, this is it.

    Paul2018-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • I would describe this accommodation as a hidden gem. Lilly and Anna were extremely helpful and Anna was so kind, generous and attentive bringing me lots of gifts of food, home made jam, organic fruit and eggs from the farm, and drinks throughout my month stay. She and Lilly always replied quickly to my requests. The whole experience was wonderful. The flat was spotlessly clean and much much bigger than I expected. Overall it represents one of the best experiences I've had in renting on airbnb. I thoroughly recommend it and will come back again in the future (I just hope it isn't fully booked!)

    Nigel2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • It was perfect!!! We recommend Lilly's home as the ideal base to discover the eastern side of Crete! And why: The hospitable village of Ziros is the perfect place for relaxation and tranquility! The house, although it is subject to some improvements, is simple, clean and neat, brings to mind beautiful memories from the house of your beloved aunt in the village and offers a comfortable stay with excellent value (very important!). But we would like to emphasize that the strong point of the house that makes the difference is the people: At first, Lili, who from the first contact won us with her behavior, her courtesy and the immediate response to all of us queries and queries, giving us information not only for the home but for everything, helping us to organize our holidays after visiting the prefecture of Lasithi for the first time. And then Anna, who takes care of the house, who from the goodwill already with her willingness to serve us in what we needed and with her cakes, shaped our stay. These two ladies made us feel that we were hosted at our friends' house, because our friends now consider them, and that's what we think is all about it! In Theodore and Yiota

  • Our experience in lilly's place this summer was just amazing! The house is really spacious, spottlesly clean, and has everything one might need! Lilly is really kind, and helped us with everything. We didnt meet her, but Anna, a resident of Ziros. Anna brought us cake, raki, and so many other traditional homemade things to taste! She was very helpful and sweet and checked on us many times to see if we wanted anything.. The location of the village is very good, as you can visit the most beautiful beaches in about 20-30 minutes drive. All the locals of Ziros were just great, and very kind with us.. Lilly's place is highly recommended, and we re definitely gonna come back. Thanx for everything.. Γεια σου Άννα και Λίλη! Καλή αντάμωση :)

    Ziros, Greece

    Arismari Apatment 2 is a brand new, beautiful and exceptionally clean space of 50 sqm, in a quiet place at the edge of the village "Ziros" of Sitia, in the prefecture of Lassithi, Crete. The decoration is simple, with emphasis on the functionality of the apartment and the comfort of the guests. The apartment can accommodate up to 5 people.
    The apartment has 2 bedrooms, with a double bed inside each one. The living room has a sofa, which transforms into a single bed. The apartment has air condition in every room, wireless internet (wi-fi), washing machine, TV, 6-seater dining room, a large bathroom with bathtub and a fully equipped kitchen with cooker, electric stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, kettle etc. In addition, the apartment has a courtyard with BBQ, table, chairs and umbrella. All windows and doors are protected by screens. Inside the village, on the main street, you will find two small supermarkets, a butcher shop, a bakery, ATM, a post office (which is housed in a café), and a traditional restaurant.
    Enjoy the tranquility of nature, in a beautiful, clean and comfortable accommodation, which can hoste up to 6 people. The area of Ziros is an excellent choice both for winter and summer visitors, since impressive mountains and clean beaches are located in the area. Small vineyards, olives and vegetables are grown on the small plateau. The use of metal windmills for pumping water, such as the mills in the Lassithi Plateau, is typical. You can also find a few small lakes. A narrow and serpentine road with countless turns, passing by the abandoned villages of Hametoulo and Lamnoni, starts from Ziros and ends at the majestic beaches of Xerokambos. The route is really fantastic, through the wild and anhydrous mountains, and the view of the turquoise waters of Mazidas and the small Kavali islands is unique. In the background you can see Koufonissi island, which can be visited with the scheduled boat trips from the litle port of Makry Gialos. In the wider area of the resort you will find gorges , the majestic Palm Grove of Vai, as well as the Minoan Palace of Zakros.
  • the flat is perfectly equipped in every square of daily life. Natassa cares awesomely about her flat: it is clean, well organized, well situated for hiking or to do day trips by car in eastern Crete. Although the flat is already perfect, the best is the host Natassa herself: she takes a lot of time to show and explain the apartment, gives lovely presents, provides a great breakfast and offers you a deep view into cretan culture! absolutely recommendable!

    Richard2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment and everything in it are in brand new condition and sparkling clean. The kitchen is well equipped and we found everything we need. Natassa even gave us some of her hens' eggs for breakfast! And homemade cookies! YumYumYum! The beds are comfortable and are made beautifully with fluffy pillows as shown in the photos. We love the backyard because there is no other house beyond the yard and so you can see far away. We bought meat from the local butcher (local lamb!) and had a BBQ. Charcoal and even fire starter were also provided! Ziros is a cute little village. Everyone we met was kind and helpful. Natassa speaks fluent English. She knows her village and area very well and shares with us generously. Definitely 5-star host!

    Stephanie2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Natasa welcomed us very kindly, warm and welcoming and offered us local produce!

    Eleni2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Natassa welcomes its guests in an exceptional way. The apartment is very clean, well appointed and decorated with taste. The area is beautiful, far from the waves of tourists. I highly recommend.

    Isabelle2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The house was really great and clean.In a peaceful location where you can really relax and enjoy the countryside. Natassa was a great host who helped us in anything we needed with useful information for the area. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who would like to spend nice and relaxing holidays! Once again Natassa, thank you for everything

    Andrianos2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • It has been one of our nicest airbnb experiences ever. Natassa was very welcoming and went the extra mile to make sure we were happy with our stay. The apartment is new , spacious and I must say the photographs do not do it any justice. We were happily surprised. The neighbourhood is quiet but there are a few shops and a couple of nice tavernas to go to. We really enjoyed our walks in the area and the starry nights from our balcony. We can't recommend it enough. Thank you Natassa for the wonderful stay. We will definitely see you again.

Its northern side is in the ground, resulting in a constant temperature throughout the season and giving you a healthy stay and restful sleep. The family Xarkiolaki has taken care of it by providing "xenona" with the necessary for a comfortable and pleasant stay.
  • Thanks to the hosts, Anna and George, for the beautiful home. I liked everything very much. Very welcoming and nice people. Unexpected difficulty with hot water was decided in an hour. Thanks again for the delicious cupcake. The house is very clean, located in the center of the village. The house had everything necessary. The veranda offers beautiful views of the valley and mountains. The house is always cool, even during the day. no air conditioning needed. The village has a couple of shops and cafes. The nearest beach is 20 minutes by car. We will be happy to come again! Many thanks to Anna and George.

  • Νικόλαος is the perfect host. He went out of his way to ensure we had a comfortable and happy stay. Great communications, he met us and showed us around. He took us for a meal in the village family home.. Outstanding Hospitality. The villagers were also very welcoming and happy to see us around. A great place to stay for anyone who wants to have a taste of traditional Greek lifestyle. Living in an hillside village, yet only 20 minutes to the port town of Sitia, where you can sample restaurants, music and true Cretan culture.. My wife and I loved the place and we will be back.

    John2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • It is an excellent stay in the very pleasant "Guest House Kanenes". Nikolaos is an attentive, jovial host who has advised us very aptly to discover a magnignific, wild, authentic region, with sumptuous landscapes. We enjoyed sharing moments of conviviality with him and the inhabitants of Agios Spiridon. We keep an excellent memory of this stay. To renew. Thank you Nikolaos. Monique and Joel

    Monique2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in the small village. The house is nice and you will find everything you need. Nikolaos is a perfect host and the people in the village are really friendly. We were invited for dinner and it was really nice to spend time with Nikolaos and the people. The place is good to explore the empty east of crete with beautiful calm beaches and a wonderful landscape

    Tobias2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to experience a real slice a Cretan village life this is it! Nikolaos and the rest of the village will welcome you with such great hospitality and generosity it’s amazing! If you want you can enjoy real homecooking cooked by an amazing 85 year old lady, together with the people. Beautiful view and location and nice old renovated house with beautiful view. In half an hour there is a nice beach diaskara and in one hour approximately you are in Vai beach with the palm trees. Beautiful experience!

    Merijn2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • An exceptional place for both the setting and the reception. Probably the best place of our entire stay in Crete. The east of the crete is beautiful, much less touristy and the welcome of Niccolaus is exceptional. Do not miss the café-restaurant of the village

    Thierry2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful little village perched in the mountain equidistant from Sitia and the south coast of the island. Friendly villagers who are always ready to help and get to know each other. A beautiful project of rehabilitation of the village led by Nikkos and his friends!

    Isabelle2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house in a beautiful place. Furthermore, no tourists. You have the opportunity to eat, drink and talk in the small village café. Nikolaos is a very friendly helpful man. We were very surprised by this place. Unique. It is an old restored house, beautiful and in that atmosphere. The only drawback were the mosquitoes. We were there in July. Later it turned out that there was an anti-mosquito plug. Possibly that could have helped. But for those looking for a unique place: recommended!

In the village you find the Agios Antonios church.
  • Quiet and beautiful house in a nice small mountain village with much to explore in the surrounding area.

    Amélie2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptional site for travelers seeking a quiet place that is off the beaten track The meal taken on the spot is excellent and the gentleman speaks French

    Georges2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Gianna's place is on the edge of a mostly abandoned village there is a cafe run by an elderly village couple . Greek only spoken . One other shop offers oil and beautiful knit and crotchet work . You will need to bring basic supplies with you . You need a car to get there and explore the area for hikes and beaches . The geo map hikes of the area are difficult to follow and some disused . This is a shame as the area is simply stunning . A photographers dream destination for the ruined houses and characters . Bring a corkscrew ..I loved the peace and solitude .

    Clare2018-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • very nice and quiet place. it was all perfect with very nice people around.

    Carine2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • It is a cute, traditional, clean and functional house located in a very quiet little mountain village, as removed from the current civilization. But human values are greater than in cities ...

    Isabelle2018-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • A very satisfactory reception. A great endrout and many things to see around. Especially at the archaeological level! I recommend

    Rural Residence “ATHENA” is an authentic, restored stone Cretan rural house built around 1850, a typical sample of 18th century rural folklore Cretan "kamarospito" (“arch house”) with a private yard and a view of the hills, valleys, vineyards and gardens.

The areas are adjusted to the contemporary needs of accommodation preserving their original form and they include ● a sleeping area ● a fully equipped kitchen (oven, ceramic cooker, fridge, coffee maker, toaster, etc) ● a dining area ● a living room area with the authentic fireplace (which was used for heating and cooking) and ● a bathroom with a shower and a washing machine. A special feature of this house is the painting on the rock which is embedded to the stone wall of the house over the old “grape press” which has been transformed into a comfortable double bed. A handmade sofa transforms into a double bed in the living room area and two handmade wooden armchairs become a single bed in the sleeping area providing a hospitable shelter for friends and family. There is also a private yard with the necessary furniture, a desk, an ironing board, Internet Wi-Fi, etc. The stone walls keep the house cool in the summer, so air conditioning is not necessary.

The guests also have access to the communal open space “SELENA TERRACE” which has a dining space, wood oven and BBQ. *** WHY HERE: *** ● Unique Cretan Product ● Local Cretan Life ● Safe Location● Great Price ● Feels like home away from home● Equipped with whatever you need to feel at home.
    The village is built on the slope of two hills and the orientation of the old neighborhood is such that offers impressive views from all the residences and is located in the heart of Sitia Natural Park which recently joined the UNESCO Geopark network enabling the visitor to enjoy its tranquility Semi-mountainous landscape of the hinterland with many marked hiking trails. Only 25 to 30 minutes drive and you reach the beautiful beaches north, east and south of Sitia province (Kato Zakros, Xerokambos, Kouremenos, Chiona, Vai).
  • Sitanos is a beautiful little village, that was a quick 30 minutes from Sitia airport. It was centrally located making it easy for our visits to caves, gorges, beaches, and archaeological sites. We stayed at the Anna and Athena houses. Katerina was extremely helpful with all our questions and arrangements. The hosts, Mr. Kostas and Mrs. Maria were fantastic! Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay very special.

    Aurélie2018-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Brand new renovated houses, with incredible decoration in all areas, crystal clear with very nice views and pristine beaches nearby. We arrived at the village of Sitano with mixed feelings about what was waiting for us and the result was much better than the words can describe. The house was spotlessly clean and fully equipped. The co-operation with the hosts flawless! Overall, it was all great and we passed it perfectly! We are already planning our next visit in about a year, for more nights this time! We recommend this house unreservedly.

    Klio2018-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is so special! The house is simply beautiful, full of character, lovingly restored. Everything you need is there somewhere! But what makes it stand out as a place to stay is the amazing hospitality of the owners, Kostas and Maria. From the kitchen full of delicious, home grown fruit and vegetables, the olive oil pressed from their own olives, the wine and raki made from their grapes to the advice and recommendations of where to explore in Eastern Crete, the welcome into their own home to eat with them, they were always there for us without ever being intrusive. What we experienced here was an authentic slice of rural Greek life and an insight into a different way of living. The memory of morning coffee on the rooftop overlooking the mountains under a blue blue sky will stay with us for a long time….it felt like a second honeymoon! Katerina was a great contact, she was very friendly and helpful and quick to respond. We booked this last minute, well 6 hours before we arrived, so to find such a unique and magical place to stay….we were so lucky!

    Steve2017-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying here. The house is very nice and cozy just exactly like on the pictures. Sunny and shady places to sit outside, well equipped and comfortable house, warm and helpful welcome. Great place!

  • We loved this accommodation and got way more than we ecpected. The house was an excellent space and sparkling clean with everything we needed. The village is in an unbelievable setting in the mountains and is very authentic. The village locals are friendly and very helpful. The host lived very close and gave us her number. We were able to explore a lot of this end of Crete due to this accommodation's amazing location. I would definitely stay here again, hopefully soon. Highly recommended!

  • Beautiful stay in Doretta's Cretan house. Doretta is very kind, helpful and generous with excellent advice. Chandras is a small village a bit isolated but equidistant from the various beaches of the far east of Crete. The house is fresh and very pleasant to live even in its outdoor spaces.

    Luca2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Doretta's place is truly lovely! Beautifully decorated and a charming terrace & garden. The location is perfect to discover eastern part of Crete.

    Serge2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful week in Doretta's house. The house is very beautiful, spacious and has everything you need for a good week. It is also ideally placed for beautiful walks and many beautiful beaches. Doretta welcomed us in person and took the time to show us everything in the house. In addition to the kind attentions that were reserved for us on arrival, she was always available and very responsive to inform us about the many things to see in the region. Thank you Doretta and see you soon.

    Emmanuel2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Doretta's place is absolutely perfect for a stay in Chandras. It is clean and spacious and very comfortable. We are a party of 12 walking The Cretan Way and Doretta also helped us book 3 other rooms in the village. Chandras is a charming village, the people are very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful stay.

    Karen2019-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in a peacefull village. Far from mass tourism. An expérience of cretan life in summer. Beautiful places to swim like Xerokampos or Kato Zakros, at the end of the Word ! Doretta and Anna are very kind and generous, we have to learn about that !

    Claire2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • the house is comfortable, spacious and light full! Perfect to explore the est part of Crete! Thank you Doretta

    Elisa2017-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • We recently stayed, with a couple of friends, in the house of Doretta in Handras (Chandras). We were very warmly welcomed by Anna, a friend of Doretta who lives in the village. The house exactly corresponds to the description given in the advertisement. It is a beautiful place! It is a beautiful stone building, spacious and bright, restored with intelligence and located in the heart of the village. You can enjoy the sun at all times of the day. The privileged outdoor space is a pleasant terrace in the shade of a vine arbor where we eat our meals. The house is tastefully furnished and has all the comforts one would expect from a quality rental. From Handras (Chandras), we shone in this beautiful region of northern Crete, explored its magnificent gorges, took our daily sea-baths in small coves worthy of a postcard and enjoyed Cretan cuisine in the Famous small taverns. There are many archaeological sites and monasteries that we could not all visit during our stay. We had great pleasure in returning to Handras (Chandras) in the late afternoon to find the calm and sweetness of the house of Doretta. We were lucky enough to attend a popular festival in the village in honor of Saint Panteleymonas at the end of July. In a word, the house of Doretta is a haven of peace and serenity that we recommend to all those who want to spend holidays tonic, cultural and relaxing in the sun.

    Didier2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 7 nights in the house of Doretta which we did not meet but were very welcomed by Anna who lives in the village. Doretta gave us very accurate information via email and SMS and remained very considerate throughout our stay. The house is very nice, very spacious for 4 people. It is a real holiday home, very well equipped with a terrace under a vine. Chandras is ideally placed to discover the secret beaches of the eastern end of Crete. In summary we had a very good week.

  • We had a great time at Sterei’s cottage. Splendid view over the mountains, the attractive village of Zakros is just a few minutes walk. Roula knows how to create a welcoming atmosphere, here one really experiences what precisely the notion ‘filoxenia’ means. The house and garden are pleasant, spacious and well equipped. We perceived it as a luxurious place. Due to its location it is an ideal starting point for many walks and hikes or to spend a day at the coast.

    Bert2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • the cottage, the village and the Zakros area are very fantastic for an holiday quiet and immersed in the beautiful nature of Crete!

    Chicco2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely home, neat to the last detail. Fantastic location just minutes from Xerokampos and Kato Zakros. Rula more than helpful. Thank you very much!

    Maria2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Traditional house in the heart of the wild ridge far from the crowds of tourists. Excellent home of Sterei! Change of scenery guaranteed ...

    Virginie2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Sterei's place. The house is very clean and perfectly located to explore nearby beaches. Roula and Manos were extremely kind and responsive. Thank you!

    Nelly2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • The communication with Sterei Hamilaki was very good. All questions were resolved quickly. The exchange was very cordial, as was the welcome in the house. We were greeted with coffee, fruits, raki and pastries. Everything is available in the house. The location on the hillside with three levels (garden, driveway and house with terrace) is magnificent. We felt it was a luxury, depending on the weather, the "levels" to change. If it was too hot, we were happy on the terrace, in the strong wind during the day in the garden or in the evening in the house entrance overlooking the landscape with the olive groves. The house is lovingly furnished and furnished. From Zakros there are wonderful and varied opportunities to explore the area: numerous gorges, beaches or even a trip to Sitia. We really enjoyed the time in the beautiful traditional earth house. Many Thanks! We'll be back!

    Sabine2019-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • This little house was exactly what we hoped for: peaceful, comfortable, with a beautiful terrace and large view over the olive trees and the sea in the distance. Roula provided all the supplies (very much appreciated) as well as welcome gifts. An address to choose without hesitation. Thank you Roula.

    Joelle2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Roula house is beautifully situated on the heights of Zakros. Nicely decorated, a lot of comfort. Superb home of Roula very attentive and gave us very good advice to discover the surroundings. We had a great time. Address to recommend without hesitation

    Arismari apatment 1 is a brand new, beautiful and exceptionally clean space of 70 sqm, in a quiet place at the edge of the village "Ziros" of Sitia, in the prefecture of Lassithi, Crete. The decoration is simple, with emphasis on the functionality of the apartment and the comfort of the guests. The apartment can accommodate up to 5 (6 uppon request) people.
    The apartment has 2 bedrooms, with a double bed inside each one. There is a private WC in one of them. The communal living area has a sofa, which transforms into a single bed (extra camp bed can be places uppon request). The apartment has air condition in every room, wireless internet (wi-fi), washing machine, TV, 6-seater dining room, a large bathroom with bathtub and a fully equipped kitchen with cooker, electric stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, kettle etc. In addition, the apartment has a courtyard with BBQ, table, chairs and umbrella. All windows and doors are protected by screens. Inside the village, on the main street, you will find two small supermarkets, a butcher shop, a bakery, ATM, a post office (which is housed in a café), and a traditional restaurant.
    Enjoy the tranquility of nature, in a beautiful, clean and comfortable accommodation, which can hoste up to 6 people. The area of Ziros is an excellent choice both for winter and summer visitors, since impresive mountains and clean beaches are located in the area. Small vineyards, olives and vegetables are grown on the small plateau. The use of metal windmills for pumping water, such as the mills in the Lassithi Plateau, is typical. You can also find a few small lakes. A narrow and serpentine road with countless turns, passing by the abandoned villages of Hametoulo and Lamnoni, starts from Ziros and ends at the majestic beaches of Xerokambos. The route is really fantastic, through the wild and anhydrous mountains, and the view of the turquoise waters of Mazidas and the small Kavali islands is unique. In the background you can see Koufonissi island, which can be visited with the scheduled boat trips from the litle port of Makry Gialos. In the wider area of the resort you will find gorges , the majestic Palm Grove of Vai, as well as the Minoan Palace of Zakros.
  • We originally booked for two nights but extended for four more! Very comfortable modern interior and a great place to come back to to relax and take a time out. Up in the mountains, it's cool in the evening and very peaceful. The quiet village has a good local restaurant, a couple of well stocked locsl stores, a couple of cafes, a cash point and a petrol station. It's right on the E4 walking route and the stretch to Skalia and on to Zakros is particularly beautiful. It is a relaxed half an hour drive down to some excellent beaches along quiet roads but what a drive! It's difficult to imagine a more beautiful one and it took our breath away every time we did it (which was every day we were there)! We made the journey several times at night too without any difficulties at all. The flat is located right by the square and the bank and Natassa was there to welcome us and maintained good communications throughout pur stay to check we had all we needed. In short we found it a brilliant place to base ourselves and we were very glad to find it; we would definitely try to book it again if we went back to that area..

  • Sitanos is a beautiful little village, that was a quick 30 minutes from Sitia airport. It was centrally located making it easy for our visits to caves, gorges, beaches, and archaeological sites. We stayed at the Anna and Athena houses. Katerina was extremely helpful with all our questions and arrangements. The hosts, Mr. Kostas and Mrs. Maria were fantastic! Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay very special.

    John2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place where time seems to have stopped. To reach the village you will have to climb up a mountain road but when you arrive it will certainly be worth it! Family welcome and impeccable cleanliness surround a unique atmosphere .... to try for yourself!

    Andrea2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Superb typical accommodation and perfectly redone in an authentic village and in a breathtaking landscape. A perfect welcome and a great attention to everyday life from Maria and Kostas. We highly recommend!

    François2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • This trip was a real pleasure. Sitanos, this forgotten village in the Cretan mountains is worth a visit for an authentic experience. The house is vintage and perfectly renovated with all the necessary comfort. The welcome of the owners is a real plus. Professionalism, availability, friendship are on the call. A big thank you to the people of Sitanos who welcomed us by opening the Taverna exceptionally, a delicious Cretan menu concocted by the hostess. The breakfast is of quality with a lot of attentions! Thank you very much for this beautiful time together !!!

    Isabelle2018-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • The location is amazing, the house is thought in every detail to ensure confort, and Kostas and Maria are wonderful hosts, who will help you discover the beauty the beauty of this part of Crete. We couldn’t have asked more.

    Matteo2018-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very pretty house, which has just been restored in a village at the end of the world of 30 souls. For peace of mind, you are served. The house is decorated in a Cretan style revisited, the old structures have been kept, you sleep for example in the old wine press. Kostas and Maria were high quality guests, bringing us an entire meal on the day of our arrival and regularly bringing us products including fresh goat's milk from the village goats. Very nice place, quite magical, hoping it remains because we feel the urge to develop these small village houses. The hosts are encouraged to run these houses themselves because even though Katerina was perfect, not talking directly to the owners but to a manager is not in the airbnb spirit. For example, we are now leaving a comment to Katerina ("How would you rate your experience with Katerina?") While the question is about our hosts.

    Manuel & François2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Sitanos is a village of 30 inhabitants. It is strategic as it is central to the most beautiful places that can be visited in the east of the island. The accommodation is beautiful, original, tastefully furnished, with attention to detail with all the amenities: wifi, washing machine, microwave etc. Kostas and Maria welcomed us as if we were old friends, making us find at home, zero-km food, fresh milk, vegetables, fruit, eggs, honey, wine, etc. On the first evening they even invited us to dinner. With Kostas, who knows English well and has a remarkable culture, we talked about history, politics and the experiences to do in the area. On the third day he also accompanied us with Maria to visit some interesting sites. We were introduced by some villagers from whom we were hosted to drink the raki. I recommend this experience to everyone. In a few days, we have breathed the life of a Cretan village.

    Riccardo2017-08-27T00:00:00Z

    A place that combines mountain & sea (20min drive to the closest beach) The perfect place for people who love nature and simple life! Our villa is made of stone and consists of 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, living room, kitchen and a big yard where you can use BBQ and a traditional oven!
    This house was my mother's mum's property. It's a great tradition of ours and we are really proud to have it, that's why we renovated everything in it 2 years ago. We would like to share its beauty because unfortunately we can not stay there all the time.
    The hospitality here is the number one thing that you will feel here.
  • A very idyllic accommodation in a small village far from the great tourism with very nice hosts. The beaches in the east of Crete are mostly as lonely and beautiful as described in the guides (especially in Xerakampos). A small disadvantage for us was the somewhat long way to the sea and shopping.

  • Accommodation well equipped, aesthetic and functional. At an altitude of 650 meters, the village is well worth a visit, the town and the sea are 30 minutes away by car. Plan ahead to make provisions. Near the Lassithi plateau, the village is halfway between the east and north-east coasts. The mountain landscapes with their biquettes are magnificent.

  • Friends of nature, this house is for you! A quiet oasis, nestled in the mountains between fig and olive trees, in an authentic Cretan village called Katsidoni. With the house of Anastasia we spent an idyllic holiday. Our host waited for us to Sitia to the road together until Katsidoni. The house is spacious, Cool with stones and has a very large terrace perfect for watching the night sky after enjoying grilled skewers on the barbecue (available). From Katsidoni we could roam the entire east coast of Baï to Xerokambos. We particularly enjoyed the beaches of Karoumes and Kato Zakros course and gorges that lead there. In summer it is difficult or impossible to venture out onto the land surrounding the house but outside of July and August it must be a treat ... We look forward to be back in Crete, and we thank Anastasia and her sister for this house of character that we recommend !! Julia and Jean-Francois.
