This was a return visit because we love this spot so much and were made to feel so welcome by Ioanna. Last trip we stayed in Pasiphae and ths time in Persephone. Both houses are fantastic. Beautifully and lovingly restored and elegantly furnished. The multiple terraces are fantastic and we especially enjoyed evenings and sunrises from the top terrace in...

We loved our stay at the Dorovinis houses. The location, the view, the cute village, the very clean and very well equipped houses made for a relaxing and unique vacation experience. We enjoyed the 'quiet' at night and the food at the local tavernas. We cannot wait to go back.

We very much enjoyed our 11 nights in Ioanna's beautifully restored stone house. It was comfortably furnished, nicely decorated, and very well equipped in terms of seating, towels, dishes, and kitchen tools and staples. The beds are comfortable: there are two queen-bed bedrooms as well as an open-loft bedroom that can sleep another two. The largest bedroom has an ensuite...

We spent two nights in the Smaragda House in Anatoli. The house is very nice, tastefully decorated with a nice bedroom separate from the living space and the kitchen. The bed and furniture are quite comfortable. We enjoyed excellent sleeps with no sounds other than the chirping of birds. The bathroom is a bit small but that is understandable given...

We spent wonderful three weeks in the Pasiphae House an oasis of silence and cosiness situated in the small and friendly village Anatoli in the mountains of Crete. The wooden furniture and the stylish armchairs that are arranged in a tasteful way and the walls of stone give the house a very rustic but cozy atmosphere. The house is well...

We spent two weeks at Dorovinis Country houses in Anatoli, Chreete, in July 2013. Anatoli is a small and charming traditional village about 15 kilometers from Ierapetra. There are few tourists and this is a place to go if you enjoy nature, history and tranquility. There are some nice hiking trails around Anatoli and a lot of small villages around...

Dear Linda and Niklas It was a great pleasure having you in Anatoli and sharing with you all those things for which we love this place. We enjoy people who seek the rejuvenating joy of mountain walking, the visits to surrounding small chapels, the Cretan cuisine in our house and in the little taverns. We would love to see you...

Our vacation at Dorovinis Country Houses was just fantastic! The house was perfect, so well decorated, comfortable and the service from Helena, the housekeeper, exceptional! We enjoy every minute of our stay in that little village. People were nice, friendly, so warm and always ready to help and answer our questions. We were looking for an authentic place to stay...

Dear Sylvie and Michael It was such a pleasure to have had you as clients in Anatoli and having met you. We really enjoyed your company in Pasiphae House courtyard, where in July late dinners we had such interesting conversations and fun. We also appreciated very much your interest and love for the remarkable old ladies of the village, which...
