Sophia, her husband (and extended family - try Alexis Zorbas in Matala) could not have been more helpful, attentive or kind. Each apartment has a private sitting out area and it was clean and practical and only minutes from Matala centre it has both the peace away from the summer throng (we went in April) as well as the convenience...

We rented an apartment for 4 persons on the top floor in August 2016 and were very pleased. The rooms were very clean and cleaned every day. We enjoyed a lot the large private balcony with a view on the countryside. Sophia, the landlady, was always very helpful and smiling. Fresh bread, eggs, and water bottles were delivered directly to...

Sophia runs this apartments for rent located just outside the centre of the village of Matala. The apartments (we have changed room twice because we decided to stay longer) are all new, well equipped, clean, nice refurbished and believe it's not easy to find a place so professionally run. Once you get in you can be sure you don't need...

My wife,14yr-old daughter and I totally loved our time at Xenophon apartments. We had a top floor apartment (2nd floor) which was spacious, well equipped and the balcony was like having our own taverna - large area with clothed table and ample beer + wine on tap from the kitchen! Great view over the nearby mountains too. A 10 minute...

We would recommend this accommodation to anyone. They are clean, well equipped, have free air-con, free safety deposit boxes in the room, free wi-fi and the apartments have nice decorative touches to make them more personal than the usual 'sterile' apartments. There are also little things that are appreciated like a mosquito plug and pads, candle holders and a welcoming...

Arrived in Matala by bus. Nobody in reception at apartments when we arrived (there was never anybody at reception). This however wasn't an issue. Owner lived locally and dropped by occasionally (mobile number available at reception). Everything was included including locked safe, air-conditioning, well-equipped kitchen and a welcome-pack. A cleaner called every day. This apt suited our needs perfectly as...

The apartments owner rang us to arrange checkin time as were staying early in the season and we were given an upgrade which was a bonus. There was a welcome pack inside the room with details about the area including the info on the market in Mires. (Saturdays, worth the visit for cheap souvlaki, fresh fish and vegetables) The apartment...
