We enjoyed our stay at Villa Lofos!
We have recently spent 5 nights in this beautiful house and had a very good time! Nick is a very dedicated host and is available at all times. Nick and his family did their utmost to provide us with everything we needed: linens, towels, homemade olive oil and cakes, fruit, fresh juice and water, eggs and raki! The icing on the cake: we left the house with gifts to take back home (which I do not describe on purpose to avoid spoiling the surprise ;-))! Thank you Nick! The house is located a few kilometers away from the village Vori and is accessible by car only. As this was not mentioned in the reviews that we had read before our trip, I would like to lay the stress on the fact that the house is located at the top of a steep uphill dirty road and that you may face difficulties reaching the top of the road with a small car (we rented a Nissan Micra and had some trouble going to the top). After the first attempt, we decided to park the car on the side in the middle of the road (which is not frequented and safe) to avoid any troubles with our car. However, you may be bolder than us and accustomed to this kind of exercise and find it easy to park the car in the private parking next to the house. Nick was very helpful and willing to help us with everything, such as unclogging the toilets at 8 p.m. (this seemed to be a temporary issue during our stay at the house). The house is not far from nice beaches and villages (we particularly recommend to go to Agiofaraggo beach and the village of Agia Galini) and has a breathtaking view! It is close to Tympaki (c. 8-10 min by car) where you can find many shops and supermarkets. We really enjoyed using the barbecue in the evening! :-) Thank you Nick for your hospitality and generosity! We had a very great time!

Fabulous holiday
A truly wonderful old house set in amazing gardens with spectacular views in all directions . Peace & tranquility in a unspoilt part of Southern Crete. Special mention must go to Nickos & his family for their generosity & hospitality. Highly recommended .

Home from home, but with a better view!
This is a hidden gem. A private retreat on a hill with wonderful gardens that provide several options for sitting and chilling out as well as some resident tortoises. The kitchen is well stocked and the owners provided, herbs, oil, raki, spoon sweets, fruit and eggs, which were a welcome surprise. The house is spacious and cool, the views wonderful and we only wish we'd booked longer. You can hear, but can't see the road, but the views soon just distract you. You can hear the birds of prey calling and on an evening see the bats flitting round. If you have any mobility issues you may find the bed, which is a futon, difficult to get out of, otherwise would definitely recommend this. Close to sea, Phaistos, mountain drives and a donkey sanctuary. We loved it! We did have problem getting the key due to no phone signal. Would recommend arranging a time to meet to pick up key as we ended up begging a shop owner to let them borrow their phone.

Belle maison près de Phaistos et Matala
Très belle maison isolée sans le moindre voisin avec BBQ, climatisation ... Le propriétaire est très accueillant et une amie allemande assure la traduction. La région est superbe avec Phaistos, Matala. Une maison idéale pour se reposer et explorer le sud de la Crète.

Gemütliches Ferienhaus mit herrlichem Blick
Der Vermieter hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen und von einem Treffpunkt zur Unterkunft begleitet. In der Küche lagerten schon verschiedene eigene Produkte des Vermieters (Olivenöl, Orangen, Zitronen, Eier und mehr), die wir mit viel Genuß verzehrt haben. Das Häuschen war hübsch und gemütlich eingerichtet und hatte mehrere Möglichkeiten, im gepflegten Garten draußen zu sitzen. Besonders schön war der Sonnenuntergang über dem Meer (wir waren im März da). Vom Standort aus kann man in kurzer Zeit viele attraktive Ausflugsziele mit dem Auto erreichen.

We had a great time in this villa. It is totally detached (nearest house down at the main road 200m away) and is gated entry into the garden and villa. The garden is stunning with different fruit growing on the tree's, and a driveway lined with olive trees. there are a couple of different dining areas outside with an outdoor stone oven and stone BBQ. All of this perched on a cliff top overlooking the land all the way to the Mediterranean sea. Inside the villa has the wooden beams on the ceiling and tiled flooring, plenty of seating in the living area and had all the facilities we needed, but with such a great outside space little time is spent indoors. There is plenty to see and do nearby if you have a car from gorge walks & snorkeling to ancient sites, vineyard trips etc. The owners were great, really generous always giving gifts. We found that true of all the people in south of Crete. If you want this sort of holiday you can book with confidence.

This pittoresque little house, located on a hill overlooking the Mezzarine valley, is just wonderful. We, a family of four, stayed there for over a week, making day trips to various places in the surroundings. Martala beach was a clear favourite. The house is clean and well-furnished. The garden is maintained properly, and includes a corner with three tortoises that thrive on water melon. Most of all we were impressed by the hospitality of the owners who spare no effort to make you feel at home. Recommended to all travellers who appreciate privacy, homeliness, and attention for detail. Maarten Bavinck and family.

Ein traumhaftes, abseits auf einem Abhang gelegenes Plätzchen mit toller Aussicht! Ein großer Garten mit vielen Pflanzen
Ein traumhaftes, abseits auf einem Abhang gelegenes Plätzchen mit toller Aussicht! Ein großer Garten mit vielen Pflanzen und bei unserem Aufenthalt sogar mit drei größeren Landschildkröten. Herrliche Freisitze um das Haus. Was man wissen sollte: Die Landstraße ist zwar relativ weit weg, aber LKWs und Motorräder sind schon deutlich zu hören. Die ganz stille Landidylle sollte man nicht erwarten. Uns hat es aber nicht gestört. Der Ausblick bis zum Meer gleicht viel aus! Das letzte Stück Anfahrt zum Haus ist sehr steil und muss im 1. Gang gefahren werden. Etwas Fahrpraxis muss schon vorhanden sein. Aber, wie gesagt, es lohnt sich!
