We would second the many complimentary things that everyone has already said about the villas and the hosts; Stefanos and Roula! They are unobtrusive yet always there with tasty snacks and helpful advice on the locality. This is evidenced by the many people who appear to find their way here by personal recommendation. The villas are furnished to a high...

We have just spent two wonderfully relaxing weeks at this very special place. We are so pleased it was recommended to us. Some friends also came and it worked really well having separate villas for some privacy but still being able to spend lots of time together. When we arrived it was clear from the start that Stefanos and Roula...

We stayed with our two children, ages 8 and 3 for the first two weeks of August and we are all agreed that this was our best family holiday to date; indeed we have just booked for next year. Stefanos and Roula are wonderful hosts, the villa was lovely with lots of little thoughtful touches and the most stunning sea...

We travelled to Chania as part of a wedding party and St Georges Retreat was the perfect location for a relaxing holiday. We were greeted by Stefanos & Rula and made to feel like family and nothing was too much trouble, they even made us some local dishes. The villa was immaculate and well equipped, they had even left toys...

We stayed here last year and the villa was stunning with everything you need and more- just like the pictures. Our hosts Stephanos and Rula were very welcoming. The views over Souda Bay are just stunning, it so peaceful and relaxing. The weather was wonderful - very hot and sunny every day.The local tavernas in Plaka are well worth a...

What a superb place! Right from the very first moment we arrived after midnight, Stefanos and Roula were so welcoming! A fridge stocked with enough for us to have breakfast the next day, as well as very welcome wine and beer. Roula's cooking was super, little pastry stuffed with cheese and the most delicious potato dish, which definitely beat all...

We stayed at St George's Retreat for 9 days at the beginning of June. What a fabulous place and location - the views from the stylish villas are just breathtaking.

We visited St Georges last September (apologies for the late review!) and it was without doubt, the best holiday we've ever had.

Stayed 12 nights in April 2015 in Villa Thalia at this spectacular location. Everything starting to bloom on Crete, no crowds yet, sheep and goats and birds are all you can hear. The views are absolutely amazing. Roula is a superb hostess who treated us to seriously good homemade baked goods and moussaka throughout our stay. The fridge in the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
About the Retreat: The Retreat Village is situated just below the famous St. George's Retreat cave. The complex benefits from extensive cultivated gardens, olive trees, a vineyard with its own wine press, and a large number of fruit trees, which the guests are free to taste. They are ideal for families and friends who would like to holiday together, but still maintain their private space. There are discounts available for groups who wish to book 3 or more villas. Contact the owner for details. There are two shared pools and a large BBQ area containing both a BBQ spit and traditional baking oven, while the tavern situated high up above the villas will take care of any appetite desire. The village of Kokkino Chorio is 5 minutes drive away while Plaka and Almyrida villages are a further 5 minutes drive each. ... more   less
