Imagine you could travel back in time 50 years ago when Crete remained undiscovered by the tourist industry. This is the experience you will enjoy in the village of Lastros, high up in the mountains of eastern Crete but ever so close to the sea. The village is located at an altitude of 300 meters nestled between mountains in the south and the sea towards the north. The distance from Heraklion is 90km while the seaside town of Sitia lies a further 35km away towards the east. The village and the surrounding area is a walker's and photographer's paradise. Maybe you prefer to stay in the village, and explore the endless maze of narrow alleys, the terraces filled with fragrant flowers, the colourful doors and beautifully paved, winding cobbled streets. Don't forget to stop by the local coffee shop where you will meet the friendly and easygoing local residents. Beach suggestions The closest beach is in the small village of Mochlos, 15min drive by car. You can swim to the small island opposite the village where you will find an archaeological site (Minoan settlement). The closest fine beaches from the house are towards Ierapetra. At 36 to 40 km from the house you will find the beaches of Koutsounari, Ferma and Aghia Fotia. Only Aghia Fotia is organized with sunbeds and snack bars. The rest are semi organised. Also at 36km from the house, to the west of Ierapetra you will find another great beach, Myrtos. Trekking suggestions Whether you choose to head towards the sea or towards the mountains there is a walking route that matches your level. You can head towards the church of Panagia Sigkomalia (2km) and from there walk the dirt track to the picturesque seaside village of Mochlos (another 8km). If you choose to explore the mountains and the amazing views you can head towards the chapel of Saint John and Kapsas peak or towards Saint Nikitas (5km round trip). If you prefer running water, lush vegetation and waterfalls, the entrance of Richtis gorge is a 15 minute drive by car. The steep slopes surrounding the village are filled with olive groves. The sun, the soil and the sea breeze that gently fondles the trees result in an olive oil of outstanding quality and taste. Lastros is a place where olives have been grown since ancient times. You will get a change to visit and photograph one of the oldest olive trees in Crete and the world, the Mathena olive tree, which has been declared a natural monument by the Association of Cretan Olive Municipalities due to the shape and relief of its trunk, that forms a cave with the adjacent rock. Restaurant suggestions - Katina's tavern in the village square: Nice environment, very good food (a good option since it is a short stroll from the house) - Platanos: has fine cuisine with many traditional recipes and has spectacular views over the bay of Mirambelo. It is on the road 4km towards Aghios Nikolaos - Kochilia tavern in Mochlos village: very good food, fantastic environment, 8km from Lastros - Kathodon in Mirsini village: After walking the Richtis gorge it is a good idea to stop in Mirsini and eat in the tavern of Manolis. It offers spectacular views, magnificent sunsets, very good food quality. Approximately 10 minutes by car from Lastros - Monastiraki: On the road to Ierapetra, on the left side of the road there is a sign that leads to the small stone settlement of Monastiraki. There is a very good taverna in the village square.The distance from Lastros is approximately 15 -20 minutes by car. - On the road to Ierapetra on the left side of the road there is a sign leading to the village of Epano Chorio where you will find a good tavern in the square. Continuing through the village there is a road leading to the beautiful Thripti mountain. The road is concrete and leads to a very good tavern in the mountain. Approximately 30 minutes from Lastros by car.
  • A nice little cocoon in the heart of a quiet and typical village, ideal for those who want to escape the resorts of the coast while staying close to the sea. Thank you Pantelis for all advice on the area and Marita for its hospitality. I recommend 1000%!

    Guillaume2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • It is a lovely place with an incredible mountain view. The accommodation is very quiet why it is perfect to have some relaxing days. The instruction and the check-in were effortless. Thank you for everything :)

    Sabrina2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We tried a lot of airbnb but this one is amazing. All is perfect. We feel like at home. The owner is a beautiful person, very kind. The house is like the description, and the view from the terrasse is fantastic. We spent a very good moment there. If we come back in Crète, without hesitation, we will stay at this place. Thank you.

    Rebecca2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Yorgos and Marita are the best hosts and prompters for charming places you may want to meet on the road. Discrete but at the same time very hospitable. The village and the view from their home (a perfectly restored old farmhouse) let you immerse yourself in the essence of true Greece. Moving by car you can visit the south and east of clay with great ease, the location is really strategic!

    Matteo2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Maritas and Giorgos Apartments was just amazing. The old house was renovated with a lot of flair and great taste, which makes it a gem inside as well as outside. The accommodation is sparkling clean and extremely tastefully decorated. Everything your heart desires is there. Our hosts were incredibly friendly, flexible, helpful and hospitable. The area is ideal for people who, far from the crowds of tourists, seek peace and quiet, enjoy wild nature and love authentic Cretan village life. Simply fantastic!

    Carmen2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible place! Stay here and enjoy exquisite beauty.

    Caroline2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very good choice for accommodation. The village is very welcoming as well as the hosts of the house. We highly recommend it.

    Lastros, Crete, Greece

    A cosy little stone house located in the picturesque Mirsini village. The village lies on a western facing slope with great views over Mirabello bay and a great sunset. From the entrance you walk in a traditional living room with a working fireplace and a practical kitchen, which is fully equipped for all your cooking needs. The bedroom has a comfortable double bed with a modern mattress and plenty of storage space. The bathroom combines traditional elements with a minimal design.
    A traditional village stone house with wooden beamed sealing, recently renovated from the ground up with great care and attention to detail.

A wooden ladder leads to the rooftop terrace with great views across the bay. The kitchen is fully equipped with all utensils, oven, hob, coffee machine (filtered) and toaster.
    Eastern Crete Eastern Crete, (east from Aghios Nikolaos) is the most authentic and unspoilt region of Crete since it is not touristically developed. It is the region that people from large Cretan cities (Heraklion, Chania) choose for their own relaxing vacations. Eastern Crete is mostly mountainous and the driving routes are winding and scenic, offering great views over wild mountains and the sea. In fact the whole route from Aghios Nikolaos to Sitia is considered on the best scenic drives in Greece. In this region you will meet writers and music composers who find inspiration in the sea/mountain views and the authentic village people. An introduction to Mirsini village Mirsini is a traditional Cretan village, unspoilt by tourism. It was incorporated during the Minoan period in the territory of the major Minoan city of Mochlos. It is located on Crete's northern main route, on the road from Agios Nikolaos to Sitia, 45 km from Agios Nikolaos and 23 km from Sitia at an altitude of 330 meters overlooking the gulf of Mirabello. It is famous for its great views (the village is west facing), its tranquility, the good food, wine and raki and for its hospitable and friendly residents. The village is surrounded by olive groves, fruit plantations, steep mountains and deep ravines. Restaurants in Mirsini Kathodon: a beautiful and cosy terrace within walking distance from the house. It serves traditional dishes and offers spectacular sea views. Another great restaurant is located in the neighbouring village of Mouliana, just 5 minutes drive from the house (it is open all year round during lunch and dinner hours). Shopping There is a small shop selling basic groceries in the village. In the neighbouring village of Tourloti there is a big market shop with fruits and vegetables as well as a bakery. For large supermarkets and a large wekkly fruit/vegetable market you will need to drive to Sitia town (30 min by car). If you prefer to avoid shopping we can stock the kitchen for you with all items you may need. The nearest pharmacy is located in the neighbouring village of Tourloti (5 minutes drive). Hiking If you prefer running water, lush vegetation and waterfalls, the entrance of Richtis gorge is a 15 minute drive by car, close to the nearby village of Exo Mouliana. The trail winds down the ravine for 4km passing from old bridges and abondoned watermills, through thick vegetation before reaching the sea at Richtis beach. If you choose to explore the mountains and the amazing views you can start from the nearby village of Lastros and head towards the chapel of Saint John and Kapsas peak or towards Saint Nikitas (5km round trip). Beaches The closest beach is in the village of Mochlos approximately 15min by car. The nearest large sandy beach is Tholos, at a distance of 20km towards Aghios Nikolaos. Sitia sandy beach is 23km drive from the house. There are various other great options available. We will provide information about the best beaches in the region. Sitia town It is the nearest town (at 23km from the house) with a large sandy beach, supermarkets, a weekly farmer's market and a hospital. For history and archaeology enthusiasts, Sitia's archeological museum display's exhibits dating back to the Neolithic era in 3,500 BC while the medieval fortress of Kazarma, situated at the top of Sitia is a reminder of the town's medieval past. Furthermore, the folklore museum exhibits items from the past century such as weavings, woodcuts and other everyday life items. During the evening you can visit one of the numerous small restaurants ("Rakadika") situated along the town's fishing port, which serve delicious variety plates along with Cretan spirit "Raki". And if you are up to it you can continue your night out until the early morning hours in one of the local bars and clubs.
  • Very clear 5 stars! We would also give 10, if that were possible! Incredibly beautiful house with a very attentive host. We felt very very welcome from the beginning! We have never had such a clean and well maintained accommodation and had a host service that was more like a hotel than a Airbnb apartment! Very clear 4 thumbs up - very clear recommendation - we are more than happy to return!

  • We had an extraordinary stay at Aliki’s beautiful little house in Myrsini. The accommodation is perfect for two and has everything you need. It was restaurated and designed with a lot of love to beautiful detail and has a spacey, shaded terrace on top with an exceptional view down to the little port of Mochlos. Here you can enjoy the most incredible sunsets. The reception and stay was made even more extraordinary due to the unparalleled hospitality of Pantelis and the two Marias! Myrsini is a beautiful little village located at the mountainside with a stunning view and located well to reach all the interesting places in the East of Crete and even beyond. There is the lovely tavern Cathodon were we enjoyed great food and the incredible hospitality of Manolis and his team. There is also an exceptional little pottery at the end of the village absolutely worth visiting (run by Nikos) and a small corner shop run by Christopherus where you can buy fresh bread and local produce, such as very tasty cheese and honey. We just loved it in Myrsini and at “our” little house and hope to come back soon!!

    Matthias2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • A very lovingly furnished apartment in the quiet mountain village with stunning views. If you are looking for peace, here is the best service.

    Gerd2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice little cottage in a small mountain village. In the local tavern you can eat very delicious and you will receive a warm welcome. The view from the roof terrace is unbeatable. For 2 people very well suited to explore the east of the island.

    Robert2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • The house was very beautiful and clean. The kitchen is stocked with everything we needed. From the terrace and the rooftop one has a very great view over the landscape and sea. We could reach many different locations like beaches, a hiking-route, cafes or restaurants with the car (which is necessary) in about 10-60 minutes. So it’s very good located in eastern Crete, which itself is worth a visit. Pantelis always answered fast and helpful. We would definitely come back to his house when visiting Crete again!

    Maren2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is nice and cozy to relax but also so great that you can do a lot. We loved the lovely decor and the great terrace and we had on two days just want to stay "at home". Kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room are not big, but perfect for two people and well equipped with everything you need. When we arrived Aliki has provided us with basic equipment in the fridge. That was great. We were greeted by a relative of hers, who gave us many tips as a professional tour guide in German. Mirsini is a village very nice and quiet with a great view of the sunset, but you are fast in Sitaia or Agios Nikolaos or on the south coast in Ierapetra. Even the famous Vai beach can be reached in just under an hour. The village tavern Kath'odon is also worth a visit. There are shops in the surrounding villages or towns, the greengrocer comes by car every day ... We have decided to spend a few days again in Mirsini in Alikis beautiful apartment.

    Norbert2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most beautiful villages on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. The property is a lovely little house with a terrace, partially enclosed for privacy, with a roof that's also accessible. There are unbelievable views of the Aegean from the terrace and from the roof and I spent hours just watching the sun set day after day. The hosts were wonderful and did everything to make our stay pleasant and comfortable, up to handling our laundry for us and providing gifts of fresh-cooked food, wine, cheese etc. during the course of the stay. This was in fact our second stay here after a wonderful trip two years ago -- Airbnb does not get better than this. Very highly recommended!

  • When we arrived at Marianna's Tiny Village House, everything was exactly as described. A sweet little house in the middle of the small village of Mirsini, where there is a top tavern! The view from the roof terrace is terrific and in the house was everything, what you need. Marianna is a terrific hostess, very hospitable, but very relaxed and sympathetic. Again and again she asked in writing if we needed something and if so, everything was immediately there! The communication with her was really great! You can tell that Marianna likes to have guests in her Tiny house! We took our water daily from the sewing source, it could not be better! Thank you Marianna and we will be back for sure!

    Ute2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at the Tiny village house. The view from the terrace is amazing and iT was a perfect way to end our vacation.

    Marthe2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Mariana is exceptional, of an unparalleled kindness. Good advice, she lives in a small village backed by the mountains where life is good. In 1 hour radius a lot of beautiful things and heavenly beaches. I highly recommend. I do not have enough words to describe Mariana, her tiny house and surroundings.

    Jerome2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • With the very hospitable Marianna you can feel very well, if you manage well in a small space ... The village Mirsini is manageable and has a small shop, a tavern and the possibility to get fresh water from a spring. On the roof terrace there is a beautiful view and love cat friends.

    Darinka Heidrun2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time in Mirsini. Marianna welcomed us warmly in her tiny house. It's tiny, but it's really all there is to it. Showering is a bit of an adventure due to the size of the bathroom but everything is super feasible. From the roof terrace you have a magnificent view of the sea. The people of Mirsini are all very hospitable and open-minded. We will definitely come back :)

    Aristea2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Marianna's tiny house, in the pretty tiny village of Mirsini, has lulled us for our ten-day stay, allowing us to relax and enjoy the beauty of the island. Marianna was an impeccable guest: courteous, helpful and attentive. In addition, she has a taste for details: small, but "precious", highly appreciated gifts. Excellent communication. Highly recommended.

    Marcello2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • My stay in the Tiny Village House in Myrsini was definitely worth going to all the way to Crete for! The beautiful tiny house is equipped with everything that one would need for their stay, including things like local olive oil and honey. Myrsini is a small mountain village with a very positive and relaxed atmosphere, a place largely untouched by touristic expansion. Marianna is a very kind and positive person. She always helped me out, if I had a question about the area or the house. The communication before the stay was always very fast and uncomplicated. I really loved the tiny village house and highly recommend it!

  • We had a great stay in this lovely traditional house located in a very cute village. We were nicely welcomed, and we found some wine, cheese, greek yogurt in the fridge, as well as tomatoes and cucumber to make a delicious greek salad! The house offers a great view of the sea, it has a huge rooftop, which was great for looking at gorgeous sunsets! It was perfect for two people with a little baby.

    Anna2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very individual house in a typical and unspoilt Cretan village. The house is beautifully designed, fully equipped for comfort, very clean and has wonderful views of the sea and sunset. Small touches like having a cool bag for picnics on the beach were great. The roof terrace is a real bonus and ideal to watch the spectacular sunsets. We loved it. Our host was very responsive and helpful in answering any queries we had and we had a smooth check-in with no problems. Mirsini is a typical Cretan village and totally unspoilt by tourism. There is running water from a spring in the main village street that is fine to drink so do try it, delicious. There is one tiny shop and a lovely welcoming taverna with perfect views of the bay. And there is a potters studio at the top of the village that is well worth a visit. Eastern Crete is rugged and wild so take care with off-roading to remote beaches unless you have a jeep. Favourite beaches for us were Tholos, about 20 minutes from the house and Itanos, about an hour’s drive to the east but one of the most perfect beaches you will find. No facilities so take a picnic.

    Heather2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! We were well received with many welcome brands (wine, feta, cheese, raki). The house is perfect for a couple with 1 child. The bedding is very comfortable. We really appreciated the location of the house. The inhabitants of the village are friendly and welcoming. The tavern is excellent! If you want to discover a different ridge, far from the tourist circuits, this house is the best starting point :)

    Deborah2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Pantelis' house is the perfect location to explore the Eastern part of the island which is beautiful and still very peaceful even in high season. Ideally located in Myrsini village (beautiful village with a great sea view, delicious tavern and friendly people) close to beautiful beaches, the lovely Mochlos harbor and Sitia. The house itself is gorgeous, very nicely decorated, well equipped (the bedding is very comfortable) and pleasant to live in. The terrace in front of the house is surrounded by flowers and nicely shaded making it perfect to have meals, the roof top has an amazing view ad is a great spot to watch the sunset. The house seems close to the road but you can't see it and more importantly you can't hear it, it's very quiet. At our arrival, Aliki welcomed us warmly and there were lovely little attentions waiting for us (fresh vegetables, cheese and wine in the fridge). We enjoyed very much our stay and would highly recommend it to travelers!

    Gauthier2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • This typical Greek house is wonderful: better than the picture and a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mirabello. We spent a wonderful week immersed in the small Greek village of Mirsini. We were very welcome with some food in the fridge as well as a homemade cake. This is very welcome when you arrive late afternoon and do not really want to go shopping ... Pantelis (that we have not seen) had sent us good addresses and was available if necessary. In 7 days we saw most of what interested us. Our most beautiful memories (outside the house that will remain a great moment of happiness) Mochlos (Go eat at Dimitri), the Richties gorge, the beach of Agiomadra and a bit distant but beautiful deserted beach after an hour of walking in the canyon of Chochlakis but also the island of Spinaloga (to visit early in the morning because very touristy) without forgetting the city of Agios Nikolaos. In short I recommend this place and thank you to Pantelis for this rental.

    Loïc2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was lovely. A very warm welcome. And such a charming house, great local style and lots of details to feel welcome as guest and even at home our time in Mirsini. We enjoyed a lot Thank you

  • Pantelis cottage is very cute. The environment and the beaches were beautiful. Especially the sunset on the terrace we enjoyed very much. Also we had a lot of nice cat visit and you felt very well in the village. Within walking distance is a super tavern (cathodes) recommended.

  • I don't know where to start, and I would love not to leave a single detail unmentioned. The summary: Paradise. Before starting I found it very nice, I was amazed by its viewpoint, the views. The previous conversation, very fast: very attentive. And so it was, perfect. Our stay was a continuous non-stop look at the sea, the storm, the snowy mountains ... Beautiful. It transmits peace, tranquility. It is one of those corners that one is happy to find and would not like to share with anyone as if it were a small treasure. But it is well-born to be grateful, and we must thank the owners for their desire that we were better than good. Dionisis was not there, but her mother, Mika, attended us: An angel, with a wide smile, with supreme kindness and above all, it was seen that she did it from the heart. Thank you, we will always have you in memory. We received the keys in a nearby town, he gave us the explanations and there we went. We find it all beautiful, it is a rural house, with something magical, hours on the stove, mid-winter, it heats up quickly, no problem, a lot of wood available, the room also catches you, you do not feel like getting out of bed. And all set for the occasion, Christmas. Equipped as if it were a house to live. Close to town but at the same time isolated, to live differently. 100% recommendable. Thanks for this gift. A hug

    Alma2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay; awesome view!

    Stefan2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation corresponds exactly to the representation of the hosts. Everything runs very correct and perfect. Many thanks to Dionisis!

    Thorsten2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • It is just perfect! The place to be! We loved it!!! Thanks to Mika and Dionisis and of course: the breathtaking surroundings

    Katharina2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Dionisis & Mirka are the most lovely hosts we met. We spent a wonderful 1.5 weeks at the place, enjoyed every minute with a breathtaking view over the hills & the sea and explored the surrounding villages for great local cuisine and nearby beaches for snorkelling and diving into waves. We can recommend Epavlis for all who seek some quiet hideout in Crete.

    Urs2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very special and magical place up there. The house is directly in the grape yards, the road is not so easy for the last ~10 minutes. But it's really worth going there. When looking for a quite, beautiful place, directly in the nature with a gorgious view you are right there. The spirit and atmosphere is even better than on the pictures. Thank you Dionisis and Mika, maybe one day we come again...

    Elisabeth2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Epavlis is a little gem. It takes about a kilometer on the dirt road from Mirsini, but it's worth it. The view from above is really exceptional (especially the sunsets ...) and everything is done to contemplate comfortably. Outdoor beds, sofas, cushions .. The house is lovely white and surrounded by greenery, olive trees, vineyards, plants ... Inside, it's like a beautifully decorated cottage. A large living room with fully equipped modern kitchen, and a sleeping area with mezzanine. Charming, warm, comfortable and with a view. (The only fault would be the lack of phonic intimacy with the floor). Mika and Dionisis are excellent hosts who take the time to welcome you, around a glass of raki (of their production!) And a cup of fresh fruit. There are a thousand touches in the house to make you feel at home. It is a stay that we will not forget !!!

    Juliette2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • The view is amazing ! Quiet cool place even in the hot summer. Warm welcoming with a glass of rami on the terrace.

    Mirsini, Greece

    A traditional stone village house in Mirsini, Crete, renovated in 2016 with the personal touch of the owner, a local architect. It offers fabulous views over the sea and a perfect sunset everyday next to the old pomegranate tree. The village itself is far away from the tourist crowds and retains its original character. Its inhabitants are friendly and welcoming. You can also book the adjacent independent house that can accomodate a further 3 people. Note that the house is located on a village side street close to the main local road and a coffee shop so there is some noise from people and traffic.
    A village house with wooden beamed ceiling, renovated with great attention to detail. It consists of 2 bedrooms, 1 double, 1 single with en-suite bathrooms. The living room is divided in two sections, the upper part has a large sofa also serving as third bed while the cosy secluded area next to the large panoramic window is the perfect place to relax, read or watch satellite TV. The stylish open plan kitchen is fully equipped. The outdoor area is designed around the old pomegranate tree and has a secluded shaded spot covered by a wooden pergola to escape the midday heat and is suitable for eating outside while the area around the pomegranate tree is great for sunbathing. Due to the west facing location you will enjoy great sunsets.
    Eastern Crete Eastern Crete, (east from Aghios Nikolaos) is the most authentic and unspoilt region of Crete since it is not touristically developed. It is the region that people from large Cretan cities (Heraklion, Chania) choose for their own relaxing vacations. Eastern Crete is mostly mountainous and the driving routes are winding and scenic, offering great views over wild mountains and the sea. In fact the whole route from Aghios Nikolaos to Sitia is considered on the best scenic drives in Greece. In this region you will meet writers and music composers who find inspiration in the sea/mountain views and the authentic village people. An introduction to Mirsini village Mirsini is a traditional Cretan village, unspoilt by tourism. It was incorporated during the Minoan period in the territory of the major Minoan city of Mochlos. It is located on Crete's northern main route, on the road from Agios Nikolaos to Sitia, 45 km from Agios Nikolaos and 23 km from Sitia at an altitude of 330 meters overlooking the gulf of Mirabello. It is famous for its great views (the village is west facing), its tranquility, the good food, wine and raki and for its hospitable and friendly residents. The village is surrounded by olive groves, fruit plantations, steep mountains and deep ravines. Restaurants in Mirsini Kathodon: a beautiful and cosy terrace within walking distance from the house. It serves traditional dishes and offers spectacular sea views. Another great restaurant is located in the neighbouring village of Mouliana, just 5 minutes drive from the house (it is open all year round during lunch and dinner hours). Shopping There is a small shop selling basic groceries in the village. In the neighbouring village of Tourloti there is a big market shop with fruits and vegetables as well as a bakery. For large supermarkets and a large wekkly fruit/vegetable market you will need to drive to Sitia town (30 min by car). If you prefer to avoid shopping we can stock the kitchen for you with all items you may need. The nearest pharmacy is located in the neighbouring village of Tourloti (5 minutes drive). Hiking If you prefer running water, lush vegetation and waterfalls, the entrance of Richtis gorge is a 15 minute drive by car, close to the nearby village of Exo Mouliana. The trail winds down the ravine for 4km passing from old bridges and abondoned watermills, through thick vegetation before reaching the sea at Richtis beach. If you choose to explore the mountains and the amazing views you can start from the nearby village of Lastros and head towards the chapel of Saint John and Kapsas peak or towards Saint Nikitas (5km round trip). Beaches The closest beach is in the village of Mochlos approximately 15min by car. The nearest large sandy beach is Tholos, at a distance of 20km towards Aghios Nikolaos. Sitia sandy beach is 23km drive from the house. There are various other great options available. We will provide information about the best beaches in the region. Sitia town It is the nearest town (at 23km from the house) with a large sandy beach, supermarkets, a weekly farmer's market and a hospital. For history and archaeology enthusiasts, Sitia's archeological museum display's exhibits dating back to the Neolithic era in 3,500 BC while the medieval fortress of Kazarma, situated at the top of Sitia is a reminder of the town's medieval past. Furthermore, the folklore museum exhibits items from the past century such as weavings, woodcuts and other everyday life items. During the evening you can visit one of the numerous small restaurants ("Rakadika") situated along the town's fishing port, which serve delicious variety plates along with Cretan spirit "Raki". And if you are up to it you can continue your night out until the early morning hours in one of the local bars and clubs.
  • The Old Pomegranate House was charmingly eclectic. It was situated in the sleepy little village of Mirsini which had a Cretan authenticity. It was the perfect base to explore eastern Crete. Pantelis gave us a long list of places to experience both near and far, little “gems” of Eastern Crete. We were greeted upon arrival with local food and drink. The owner stopped by with hot cheese and spinach pies, which was a such a delight! We would highly recommend the place anyone who is interested in exploring the east side of Crete!!

    Kay2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed the old pomegranate house. We stayed 6 nights and that was just right to explore the east of Crete. You need a rental car. Pantelis and Aliki made sure that everything was ready as agreed.

    Remo2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Unique, peaceful place. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend!

    Lacie2018-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Really beautiful house in a stunning location. Great communication and hospitality. Our best Airbnb yet. This is the perfect place to unwind for a week.

    Simon2018-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place. You wont regret staying here!

    Ramin2018-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • The photos enthuse about what you can expect. This accommodation is very romantic, thought out to the smallest detail and can hold everything: whether indoors on the couch (at the World Cup), outside at the breakfast table with views over the northeast coast or half covered with a small cocktail / beer to the holiday plans forge. Everything is there! And if something is missing, then someone is always available and very accommodating. Maybe the only drawback: you can only walk to the property (as indicated), but you get to know the short way through the village nice Greeks, who then offer a fresh melon. Everything relaxed, everything Greek!

    Juliane2018-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful looking house with sea view and really nice and warm people in Mirsini. Thank you Aliki and Pantelis for an amazing week!

    Perfectly located in the adjoining field to the village of Myrsini, "Sotir Ali Stone House" is a beautiful stone built farmhouse that is perched among olive groves, overlooking the gulf of Mirabello. It is built on the exact same spot of an older lodging, a "magatze" as we call it here, that served our family during the olive's harvest. The name of the olive groves around the house is Sotirali and may be a corruption of the Turkish name "Sotir Αli".
    If you value privacy and seclusion on your vacation, you will love this unique traditional house, built 1 km away from the village on a west facing hill that offers amazing, unobstructed view of the area and stunning sunsets! To get there you'll have to cross 1 km of dirty road (no need for a special 4x4 car to do so) while you'll have the chance to experience the off grid life style! The house's power comes exclusively from the solar panels on the roof so there are no energy-thirsty appliances! The perfect opportunity to connect with nature and with each other!
    Myrsini is a small picturesque village with the most dazzling view of the area! It is built on a rural part of north Crete that offers a lot of hiking opportunities and relaxing walks among the olive trees and the scent of wild herbs. In the village you can find a traditional coffee shop and a grocery store with the most amazing, 90 years old grocer, you have ever seen! Do not miss "Kathodon", the tavern at the entrance of the village with very good food! Very often there are cultural events in "Fabrika", our cultural center or on the village's square and if you are lucky you may even get the chance to watch a rehearsal or even a live performance of "Tsita-Corda", our very own band! And if you crave for some seafood while you gaze an ancient Minoan settlement, the fishing village of Mochlos with a lot of taverns and a small beach is only 15' away by car!
  • Dimitra's place is beautifully restored! The view is spectacular and she has lovingly thought of every detail to make our stay unique. From the delicious Cretan cookies to the Olive oil shampoo to the local tips it was a highlight of our trip to Crete and we have been travelling the island for two weeks! Epharisto!

    Barb2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We spent an amazing week at Dimitra's house. It was the most amazing place we have ever been. Warm hosts, wonderful view and clean, cozy rooms. Highly recommended! Thank you for everything! Radojka & István

    Radojka2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is THE place to get away from it all! We very much enjoyed our stay at Dimitria’s wonderful house amidst the olive groves and far enough from any touristic places. We especially appreciated the calm & picturesque surroundings, the spectacular terrace, the amazing view and all the attention to details inside the house. There was coffee, olive oil, spices and even water for us. Despite feeling like being in the middle of nowhere it was still a perfect location for excursions in the area, like to Sitia, the Gorge of Richtis, Moxlos, Vai, etc. We can only recommend this accommodation and will surely be back next year! Dimitria and Stevanos are wonderful people!

    Jan2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • The house is great, very cool and with a great view! It offers privacy and privacy, close to Agios Nikolaos and Mochlos. Communication with the children was impeccable. Thank you very much Fotini!

  • What happiness to fall asleep with the sound of the sea. The apartment was clean, well located with the daily necessities. We recommend this studio!

    Lucie2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful location. You walk out the door a few steps and the ocean is right in view. Most hotels/apartments would charge a fortune just for the view! But for this price it’s incredible!!! How fortunate we were to experience the comfort of Maria’s place! There was a mile long list of recommendations of Tavernas and things to do around the area as well as fast communication when we needed advice or recommendations ! It was such a sweet touch to leave us local Raki, fresh grapes and Marmalade. The studio was well stocked with all sorts of handy odds and ends. Coffee, first aid, sewing kit, towels and blankets. And even beach gear! The beach gear was especially useful for my husband and I due to the fact that we packed very light to avoid luggage bulk and expenses! It was extremely convenient to have an umbrella, mats, towels and snorkeling gear! The small space is just enough and is made so everything has a function. I cannot recommend this place enough. Mochlos is the most beautiful place I have ever been. Even on busy days it wasn’t too crowded! Such a peaceful magical location. Many thanks to the hosts!! We can’t wait to bring our son back one day and share the magic with him!

    Amelia2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice time at Mochlos in Mapia’s apartment. We can only recommend staying there. Thank you for the nice time Mapia and Stefanos! A car is recommended because of the bus connection. Although you can cope with it due to the local very nice and obliging taxi drivers. Gladly again!

    Lilli2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay here and have completely fallen in love with Mochlos. The studio is ideally situated in the heart of the small, picturesque fishing village and has all the amenities you might need for a comfortable stay. The only small issue was that phone signal was very weak in the studio and we weren’t able to easily connect to the WiFi at the neighbouring taverna, but this didn’t spoil our stay. Mochlos is a beautiful small fishing village that has a lovely buzz to it without being overcrowded or noisy. There are lovely tavernas that all sell delicious fresh and local food. Everyone we met was very friendly and welcoming. As there’s plenty of free parking in Mochlos we would strongly recommend hiring a car in order to explore the neighbouring beautiful villages such as Tourloti and Lastros, countryside and beaches, such as Agia Fotia. Fotini provided lots of helpful recommendations of where to visit, which we appreciated. Thank you for a fantastic stay, we couldn’t recommend this place highly enough. We hope to be back one day soon.

    Charlotte2019-07-07T00:00:00Z

  • Unique experience, the view is beautiful and peaceful, Mochlos is a small village too cute and safe from crowds of tourists! The apartment was perfect, cleanliness, booklet with suggestions for visits and restaurants ... We were able to arrive earlier than expected with no problem with welcome and departure gifts, Yannis and her mom are exceptional, so kind and so hospitable, we highly recommend this accommodation for a little paradise out of time ...

    Elodie2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Home top with small touches that are fun, the setting is magical and romantic. We recommend

    Anais2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed the 10 days. The apartment was clean and had everything you needed. The view from the terrace is just fantastic, we spent many hours there. Yiannis has always answered promptly in advance and gave us great tips for trips. His parents were very nice and always there. A car is recommended for the stay, also to explore the really beautiful area. All in all it was one of the best holidays. We will hopefully visit again.

    Teresa2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our Airbnb-experience in Mochlos was one of the best we've ever had. The appartment had everything: amazing view, good accomodations and it is situated 2 minutes away from the sea and some good tavernas. Yiannis and Filio were very helpful. The surprise at the end of our stay was the icing on a perfect cake!

    Gillian2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation of Yiannis is definitely worth a visit! We felt very comfortable there and the equipment is nothing to complain about. In Mochlos you will find innumerable tavernas which we can recommend to you in good conscience, even at top prices. Should you go on holiday, a car is recommended. There is also a large public car park where you can leave the car for free. The only point of criticism is the way from the parking lot to the apartment, as this is really steep. But worth the great view but definitely. If you need help with the suitcases, Yiannis father will be happy to help you. Yiannis and his family are very hospitable and will help you right away, we have also got great beaches and recommendations for trips through them. We will come back in any case !

    Sarah2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • It was an amazing stay, thank you so much! The place and Mochlos itself are beautiful and guarantee a very happy time you spend there

  • Katherina's house is a small house located in the village of Lastros, a quiet and authentic village. This is the 2nd time we have stayed there. proof of quality! The house has been recently renovated with a lot of care and taste. And above all, it is very well equipped: washing machine, dishwasher, grill, coffee maker, kettle, microwave, stove, ... in short there is nothing really missing. The kitchen is really perfect for making real meals. The beds are comfortable, there is plenty of space in the closets to store your belongings, the bathroom has a large shower, a vanity unit and toilets. it is really the ideal place for those who wish to truly immerse themselves in Cretan life. Only small downside, despite all the efforts made by Elena, the internet connection is capricious. This year it is with great pleasure that we met Elena.

    Gwénola2019-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • Good location right off the National Road, kitchen has it all, great having sharp knives, & cutting board. Good communication, great view out back doors. WiFi inconsistent but otherwise highly recommended.

    Lori2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • The house is recently renovated, almost all is new, kitchen fully equipped and it’s a pleasure to cook. Beds are very comfortable too. It’s very quiet here at night. The house is clean and cozy. From the terrace opens beautiful view to the mountains. We were very pleased by compliments – local raki, olive oil, honey. Thank you, Elena! There are many paths near the house over the hills, so it’s possible to make long trekking. The smell of herbs and plant was marvelous, we picked up fresh sage for the tea. House is located on the top of hill, it’s surrounded by the mountains, so it’s cloudier and windy here. But the air is very fresh and delicious. It’s a perfect place to escape from noisy city life.

    Pavels2019-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • House very well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, coffee machine, microwave, oven. 2 terraces one mountain side, a street side little frequented which allows to discuss with the inhabitants. tavern nearby, and a coffee shop frequented by locals that allows meetings. Maestros is a very pretty village, calm. Only negative point: the internet connection is very bad, see nonexistent in part of the house.

    Located in the center of Kavousi village, a traditional 18th century Cretan home restored and renovated with respect to its original form. Two separate rooms, kitchen and bedroom with bath, connected through a small yard, like most homes in Cretan villages used to be. It offers all modern facilities and comfortably accommodates 2 people, while larger families and groups can rent upon request our independent neighbouring home. Ideal for all seasons and for both sea and mountain lovers.
    The house has one bedroom, a bathroom with shower and a separate fully equipped kitchen with a dining table. One can also enjoy their meals and drinks in the beautiful and private courtyard among pots with flowers and herbs. The house offers free WiFi Internet, the guests can use the machine in the bathroom and we will provide clean linen and towels twice a week.
    Kavousi is a historic and lively village that offers many activities and attractions. Its unique nature and history offers a variety of interesting visits, educational excursions, intense walks and hikes, caving experience, as well as deep relaxation and peaceful moments. At its square there are coffee shops, the church of St.George and the Twelve Apostles Church. One should definitely try the famous traditional and super healthy desserts made with grapemust that are sold in most local bakeries. Tholos beach, sandy, with shallow waters and shady tamarisk trees is located 3km from the village. Nearby many important antiquities like the three minoan settlements, the ruins of Roman warehouses, many byzantine orthodox churches and chapels with impressive wall paintings. One should not miss the remarkable ancient olive tree of Kavousi, 2 km on the southeast, with a trunk diameter of 17 meters estimated to be nearly 5000 years old. The olive tree was recently declared a protected natural monument. The "Theriospilo" cave, 40minutes walk from the village is also worth visiting for its impressive stalagmites. Near the cave is the "Chrysokamino”, the remains of a mining kiln from the later medieval period. Opposite the beach of Kavousi the islet of Psira can be seen, where an important settlement and active port thrived in the Minoan times. The view of the island and the bay of Mirambello from the area of Platanos, on the east of the village, is breathtaking.
  • This place is absolutely charming! The house is beautifully restored and much prettier than the photos suggest. It is full of thoughtful details including pieces of furniture painted and restored by Eleni herself. You can have breakfast outside staring up at the mountain behind the house. The house is made of 2 separate buildings which is really fun. It is a short walk to the beaches and olive groves nearby. If you want a little escape from the world stay here. We loved it.

    Stephen2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience. The house is located in a very small, characteristic and very beautiful village. It is not very touristy, it really breathes the air of Crete and its tradition. There are some beaches about 15 minutes away, but to go to the best-known ones on the east coast it is necessary to move a lot (minimum 1 hour drive). However it was worth it for the beauty of the country, the house and the views. A few km away there are many family-run taverns, to eat excellent traditional dishes at very honest prices, very different from those of the most famous places. The house is beautiful as in the picture, it should be noted that the bedroom and the kitchen are not communicating but have two separate entrances of a couple of meters. The kitchen is large but there is only one small electric stove that makes it virtually impossible to cook; eating out is however so convenient that for us it was not a problem. Zero nightlife (but it can go to ierapetra in half an hour) so highly recommended for those who want to feel comfortable. The atmosphere that reigns in the house and in the country is truly authentic and unrepeatable. Eleni was kind and helpful although we didn't get to know her in person because we were almost always out. A magical place not to be missed

    Mochlos is a small picturesque traditional fishing village located In the gulf of Mirabello in Eastern Crete. Eastern Crete, (east from Agios Nikolaos) is the most authentic and unspoiled region of Crete to our opinion. Offering breathtaking views. Wild dramatic nature, mountains and a range of beaches, gorges and the sea, besides a unique variety (for such a small village) of exelent restourants & taverns. The perfect place for relaxing vacations and hiking. Mochlos is located 48km east of Agios Nikolaos and 35km west of Sitia. A special part of Mochlos is the island, which is a very important archaeological site, it is considered one of the largest Early Minoan settlements in Crete and is only 150m from the shore. On the island is St. Nikolas church. Mochlos is one of the unique villages in Crete where you can just stay without having to drive a long way or even drive at all.

The center bay of the village with a small sandy beach is surrounded with the Taverns, Rock Café/bar and Fotini's souvenir shop. In the main street of the village you will find Céciles shop. This is a fashion and accessories shop run by Cécile, a colorful character with an amazing taste and style.
  • The accommodation is simple but comfortable and ideally located at the entrance to the beautiful and authentic village of Mochlos. The view from the apartment is splendid. Stavros is responsive and offers its guests many small touches of its production (fruit, wine, raki ...)

    Francis2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Superb studio with balcony overlooking the island of Mochlos. Very calm. We were surprised the first morning to find grapes, olive oil and raki on the doorstep ... not to mention the magic of the village, authentic and charming. We recommend

    Marine2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • The location is everything. Such stunning views over the back and to the island, which has an old Minoan settlement. Really breathtaking. A lovely apartment with an old world feel and authentic in its warmth. We only stayed 2 nights but wished we could stay longer. Beautiful hospitality and we will definitely return.

    Miltos2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice place to stay and enjoy eastern Crète. The view and the village are both lovely, with a sweet atmosphere. It feels like a little place in paradise. Highly recommended !!!

    Louise2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Small place with a great view. Very close to the village and the beach. Great value for the money The only thing I would mention is that, there was no cutlery or kitchen utensils to cook like knives etc.

    Vinita2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Stavros is a marvelous host and the studio's great location just on the edge of the village offers the perfect place to relax and enjoy the view. Mochlos is the ultimate place to get away from it all. All of the locals welcome you with open hearts. And all of my meals in the village were fantastic, the traditional Greek dishes are delectable and the seafood could not be fresher. The lobster were still alive when ordered and the fish I ate were actually caught by Stavros himself. Quite an amazing man, he surprised me with fruit from his garden and also makes his own raki and wine. All in all if you want to step back in time, and escape from the stress of modern urban living you can't find a better place to do so. I plan on staying much longer next time.

    Nick2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, simple, clean space with a wonderful view of Mochlos island and the sea, a bit set back from the village which is really nice for a sense of quiet and calm. Check in and check out were very simple and straightforward. Altogether a relaxing visit, just what I was hoping for, I'd happily stay here again.

    Sylvia2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely place to stay. Amazing views over the harbour. We even got some produce from Stavros garden. Nice clean linen in the beds. Many thanks we would love to stay again.

  • We had a very nice stay at the house. Everything was clean and Giorgos is very hospitable. There was fruit, local olive oil and wine when we arrived and Giorgos could inform about beaches and trips in the area. The house is located in between olive trees with views to the mountains and there is only 10 min by car to a very nice sandy beach (Tholos).

    Jacob2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • The home was beautiful at a very scenic location. We appreciated the fresh fruit, wine and raki.

    Megan2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place, a wonderful house, Georgas is a wonderful host who helped us and answered our great many questions. Expect that you can only get on a rented car.

  • Such a gem that place, starting from hospitality, communication and place itself it's amazing feeling to wake up in property overlooking olive trees and epic Gorge Ha just in front of you. Parking by the door with your own gates and very close to the beach as well as awesome location to see east Crete. Local places to eat like Zorba which we enjoyed are just 5min drive so you are just short distance from all you might need. Host is amazing and kept in touch as we had late arrival - waiting for us for quite a while. Thank you for making our stay great and those small touches like fruit basket and bottled water are super helpful. Would I recommend this place? 100% yes

    Marcin2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay. Pictures are 100% accurate. The nearby village Pacheia Ammos provides everything you need (2mins by car). And last but not least, your host Giorgos is always there to help.

    Geoffrey2019-09-07T00:00:00Z

    Etienne2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice reception, nice apartment with a great terrace, super equipped kitchen. Thank you very much

    Florian2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Right on the lake side with a beautiful sea view! The apartment is very clean and comfortably furnished. There is a really good equipment available. The communication with the co-hosts was very conscientious and accommodating. We enjoyed having a good base for exploring the area, but also convenient for swimming and to the restaurant just down the stairs. The recommendation of the hosts were very good. In mid-October it was still summery and the restaurants were open. Highlight: swim to the small island and explore the Minoan archaeological site (take your own shoes). Also for snorkeling we really liked the bay.

    Nina2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a wonderful vacation week here, always surrounded by the sound of the sea. Great terrace, with beautiful views, also sea view from the bed. The apartment is well equipped, everything you need is there, it is very clean. It is very centrally located. Mushless is small, there are good tavernas and nice excursion possibilities. Not really good beaches to lie down (which I did not miss at the terrace), but it is really good for swimming. The communication, which in our case ran over Stefanos, was problem-free and everything worked smoothly. We felt very comfortable and will gladly come back. Thank you very much.

    Bernhard Mayer2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • We have spent a very nice week in Mochlos. The flat was lovely, in front of the sea and very functional. It was so pleasant to hear the sea from each room! The view is beautiful, we were so close to the sea and the small beach of Mochlos! The location is very good, close to the taverns, the mini market. Morever, a lot of beaches and trecks all around. Maria and Stefanos are very nice people. Stefanos was really reactive and he gave us a lot of useful informations. We had the chance to meet Maria who is a very kind person. We appreciate a lot all her attentions and we were lucky to meet and share some moments with her. Thank you very much both of you!

    Natacha2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful. It is homely and quirky and cute. The views are incredible especially from the front, with doors to fling open wide and listen to the sea day and night. It is so close to everything including the little beach, great tavernas and beyond. It is a beautiful little village with an almost Caribbean feel, friendly locals and never too busy or noisy. There are 3 balconies to chill on with dreamy sea views, a cute single attic room and a lower double room which are really comfy and clean, great pillows and bedding. The kitchen and in fact the whole house is wonderfully equipped and Maria is a genuinely kind and helpful lady. No review or Google search I have read or seen even comes close to describing what a wonderful special experience staying at Maria 's in Mochlos is.

    Karenza2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Apartment overlooking the main creek of Mochlos. Superb views, taverns and mini market at 10 meters. Everything available and even more (palms, umbrella, first necessary kitchen, ...). We had a wonderful stay and we highly recommend this address!

    Maéva2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Mochlos is a small corner of paradise, lost on its peninsula, little visited and family, with its 8 taverns anyway ..! The apartment has a unique location with sea views on both sides! The welcome of our host is irreproachable, as his advice and the wine left to our attention ... We will return, that's for sure!

    Lina2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Cute little house right by the water and next to lovely barraki. Air-con was much appreciated. Amazing food in Mochlos and we had a wonderful few days.

    Jane2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Mochlos is a beautiful fishing village with dreamland. The cozy apartment with terrace and roof terrace is just perfect for relaxing and diving. Super clean and lovingly decorated. We will be back.

    Laura2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in this little house at the end of the world. It is functional, ideally located at the end of the village, with a life on the terrace, rocked by the sound of the waves. Our host was very caring for us (what a joy to meet you Annali!) It was ideal for a family of 4, and the bar Raki next door brings this little extra that makes the place magical.

    Isabelle2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little gem right on the sea. The rooftop lounge is awesome. Lot of attention to detail and great style. Mochlos is the most pretty village with great food. The bar nextdoor is not too noisy. We come again.

    Michael2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect place if you want to stay out of the mass tourism. The little house if a few meters from the sea (no sandy beach, but rocks). You'll find a beach at 200m. The bar next door is perfect for lunch or to have a cocktail by the sunset. The house is tiny, but well equipped and perfectly clean. We appreciated the nice and personal decoration. One of the main assets of the house is the roof terrace, with all the cushions, the shadow and the breathtaking view. We definitely recommend the place!

  • Cosy little place inside with a tremendous roof top. Centimeters from the sea and convenience of Bar Raki being next door. Used their WiFi the entire time as there wasn’t any provided. The bed was firm but comfortable. Overall we had a fantastic experience and felt relaxed and happy.

  • Armin's place is simply spectacular, the house is spotless and exceptionally well equipped. We didn't miss a single thing. Armin is an amazing host with lots of good tips and fast response. And then the view, exactly as shown in the fotos, but so much more special once you see it yourself and totally worth the trip along the unsealed road (take it slow and you can do it with a normal car). Thanks for the hospitality, Armin!

  • Armin, the landlord of the villa, is super friendly and has received us very nicely. He was with us before the trip with words and deeds aside. On arrival he handed over the keys, showed the villa and provided us with great excursion tips and helpful everyday tips (shopping etc.). During the whole stay we could reach him at any time. The villa is super nice and modern equipped - we did not miss anything. The location is absolutely perfect for a quiet and relaxing holiday - no direct neighbors, absolute silence and an exceptional view of the bay and the sea. All in all, we were absolutely thrilled and can only recommend the villa to anyone.

    Turid2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodation with a fantastic view !! Quiet location with sea views and the sound of the sea :) Arnim is super nice and gave us some great tips. The accommodation is absolutely recommended !!! Gladly again! :)

    Tim Yannik2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 2.5 weeks at Armin's beautiful villa high in the mountains around Kavousi. Armin is an absolutely fantastic host who was always on hand when we had any questions - even tricky stuff like recommending a doctor when we had ear troubles. As he runs his own adventure / sightseeing business he has a wealth of knowledge about the area which we made good use of. He is as involved or laid back as a host as you want him to be which was very pleasant. The house has got everything you could need for a relaxed holiday including an infinity pool with absolutely breathtaking views of the bay, a beautifully kept garden (delicious figs!!!) and of course our new best mates Kiki and Basti, Armin's sociable cats. To get to the house you definitely need your own car - we would even recommend a 4x4 or something similar because the last 3 km are pretty rocky. We had a wonderful holiday and thank Armin for his hospitality.

    Lea2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house, the location and especially the views are great! Our expectations were exceeded. The house has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Arnim is a great host who gave us local tips. We would definitely come again.

    Lea2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Arnim was a perfect host, really flexible. The house is clean and perfectly located even better that what we were expecting. The view is stunning, it’s only nature. The place is very quiet and we can hear the waves from the house. We will come again without any hesitation ;)

    Nicolas2019-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • Even more beautiful than in the photos. Great location, great house and Arnim is an excellent host.

    Sabine2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • We extremely enjoyed this wonderful place, the extraordinary house, the beautiful and unique view, the quiet of nature and so many more things. The house offers everything you need and provides ample room, allowing you to sit where you are most comfortable - from beautiful shade to sun, from lovely terrace to pool. And to top it: Armin is a wonderful host, extremely friendly, with many good tips and insights and quick in communication. We would love to come back and look forward to the opportunity.

    Mochlos, Greece

    Traditional stone-built house at the beautiful village of Mirsini. Traditional Cretan architecture, cozy atmosphere in a lively hospitable village, famous for its sea view and sunset.
    Two-storey house. At the ground floor there is the living room with a sofa that can be converted to one double bed, the kitchen/diner (a toaster and a kettle provided), and the bathroom with hand wash basin, toilet, bidet and shower. Upstairs there is one main bedroom with a double bed, a second bedroom with two single beds, a balcony, terrace with a large table and chairs, and large roof terrace with a wonderful view of the sea and the Minoan Island of Mochlos.
    Mirsini is a typical Cretan village with a village shop (where you can find the basics), a traditional kafenio (coffee shop), and a tavern with great food and amazing view. You can enjoy lovely country walks from the village as well as Richtis gorge famous for its beauty and its small waterfall. Sandy beaches are a short drive away and many other beautiful villages are nearby to explore. The village and Island of Mochlos with its Minoan remains is a short drive away. Sitia, the nearest town, is a 25 minute drive away, and Agios Nikolaos a 45 minute drive. Mirsini is a lively village and during the season there are often interesting things going on at the Fabrica, the cultural center (and former olive mill) of the village.
  • My wife and I stayed in Cicely's house for 3 days. It was the first holiday alone without children after 14 years. The house perfectly cured in every detail; it's romantic and perfect. Nothing is left to chance, you find everything you need. Stefanos and Fotini welcomed us warmly making us find coffee, raki and two pomegranates. We loved the terrace on which it is easy to be enchanted in front of the sunset show. The nearby tavern Kath’odon is fantastic: highly recommended. Mirsini is a traditional village full of nice views and surprises. Only one shop where the ninety year old manager dispenses food and wisdom. We will come back: it is a promise. Federico

    Federico2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Our experience in Valerie’s accommodation has been unforgettable! The apartment is wonderful, very gracious and detailed, and Stefanos and Fotini are so so nice co-hosts, they can give you a lot of useful tips about the East of Crete! In Mirsini you can really enjoy the Cretan lifestyle, the people are fantastic, so kind and good-natured! Here you can find your inner peace and see the Cretan expression “siga siga” (slowly slowly) coming true! :) Thank you so much for your hospitality Valerie, Stefanos and Fotini, hope to see you soon!! :)

  • We spent a wonderful week in Mochlos! The apartement is as described in the ad, everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to cook, the terrasse has an amazing view on the sea and Yiannis was very helpful and answered quickly.

    Veronika2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Yiannis's place is absolutely perfect! I can honestly say that we had an absolutely magical holiday. Yiannis and his mum were so hospitable. They live upstairs and they dropped us down grapes and other goodies during our stay. They also gave us a really cute parting gift which was so sweet. We locked ourselves out in a very convoluted way one morning and Yiannis appeared immediately after we contacted him. He had to get a locksmith to open the door which he insisted he would not accept any payment for. His communication was superb throughout our stay. The studio is much bigger than it looks in the photos and we were very comfortable there for 10 nights. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and some breakfast treats, wine and raki were in the kitchen to welcome us. The view from the terrace is absolutely spectacular and it's very comfortable for eating, reading and generally chilling out. Mochlos is a very special place and the tavernas are mostly excellent. Our favourites were Dimitri's and Kochilia. The island is also highly recommended. I really cannot say enough good things about our stay. We had such an amazing time and I really hope it is free on our next visit to Mochlos, I hope will be next year! Thank you both so much for a wonderful stay. Maeve and Tom

    Maeve2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • ONE WITHOUT FAULT: BRAVO This host is of great generosity; in the apartment there is everything that makes your arrival really special: Turkish delight and raki and everything you need for the first breakfast. In the cupboards, there is also beyond what is necessary, such as shower flowers, a sewing kit, a first aid kit ... and more ... During the stay, the small box of Turkish delight filled up spontaneously and we even found a small jar of grape jam ... Yanis is nice and discreet (he lives above and we only cross him twice) ... The apartment, spacious, is beautifully furnished in a modern way and the view of the island to the remains of Minoan Mochlos sublime and breathtaking. Hope to see a day from this eagle's nest a storm that moves the waves so dantesque and strait between the village and the island of the same name a real washing machine ... The main asset is therefore the calm, the view and the fact of being in the village. The small end-of-stay gift, impromptu, is really nice and nice!

    Alice2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • A really chic apartment just like in the pictures! The terrace is beautiful and invites you to linger in the shade or to sit under the stars. Yiannis always answers very fast and inquires in between about how he feels. Upon arrival, a few nice little things are available as a gift. Everything is thoughtfully thought out. We absolutely enjoyed the time in Mochlos and would love to come back!

    Kathleen2019-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very nice, great view from the covered terrace, very good sun protection, also inside for the summer months very suitable, since the only window and the door go out to the front (north side). The beds were unfortunately too hard for us. Otherwise everything was fine. Nice decor, as in the photos. We did not meet Yiannis, but he always answered very quickly.

Makrigialos is a large village, located near the exit of the lush canyon of Pefki. Being initially a humble harbor with no roads in the ‘50s, Makrigialos has faced a strong growth and has become the largest tourist destination in the region. It actually consists of two settlements, Makrigialos and Analipsi, which are now united. In the village you can find large and small hotels, taverns, restaurants, bar and cafes, super markets, bakeries, ATMs, doctor and pharmacy. The main growth driver of Makrigialos is the beautiful beaches of the village and the surrounding area, the calm shallow sea and the magnificent mountainous scenery that rises north of the village. The main beach of the village lies in front of Analipsi and is 1km long. It is known as Makrigialos, but you might hear locals call it, Hani or simply Long Beach. It is a well organized narrow beach with fine gold sand, surrounded by numerous cafes and restaurants. Here you will find free umbrellas, water sports and showers and big tamarisk trees. The water is very shallow and calm, while the temperature is high up in the winter. Thus, the beach of Analipsi is very suitable for children and for not very good swimmers. West of the village, behind the port, there is the unknown beach of Kalamokanias, with its wonderful coarse sand. North of the port, in Katovigli, there is a small sandy beach, which is actually the extension of Makrigialos beach. The beach Katovigli (or Limanaki) is well organized with free umbrellas and several facilities around. Trademark of the area are the ruins of the Roman villa of the 2nd century AD, with baths and mosaics, which is the unique in eastern Crete. Instead, on the other side of the village there are the two bays of Lagoufa, next to two large hotels. It is worth staying in Makrigialos and use it as a base for exploring the beauty of the wider area. Apart from the beautiful beaches stretching from Ferma to Goudouras, it is worth visiting the surrounding villages, walking in the canyon of Pefki or in the lush Orino Gorge. In Makrigialos town you can visit the local churches, the Roman Villa in Katovigli and the Minoan villa at Plakakia, which has the architecture of Minoan palaces. The nightlife is not intense here, but there are a few bars offering drinks on the beach. You can also till the harbor of Makrigialos and see the picturesque boats and the fishermen. Keep in mind that the local microclimate is especially warm all year. This makes it a welcome destination the whole year.
  • Everything was great. When we needed help it was easy to get contact and the host Maria was very helpful with everything. The villa was clean and something different than the other in the area. We had a great vacation! We strongly recommend it.

    Eastern Crete Eastern Crete, (east from Aghios Nikolaos) is the most authentic and unspoilt region of Crete since it is not touristically developed. It is the region that people from large Cretan cities (Heraklion, Chania) choose for their own relaxing vacations. Eastern Crete is mostly mountainous and the driving routes are winding and scenic, offering great views over wild mountains and the sea. In fact the whole route from Aghios Nikolaos to Sitia is considered on the best scenic drives in Greece. In this region you will meet writers and music composers who find inspiration in the sea/mountain views and the authentic village people. An introduction to Mirsini village Mirsini is a traditional Cretan village, unspoilt by tourism. It was incorporated during the Minoan period in the territory of the major Minoan city of Mochlos. It is located on Crete's northern main route, on the road from Agios Nikolaos to Sitia, 45 km from Agios Nikolaos and 23 km from Sitia at an altitude of 330 meters overlooking the gulf of Mirabello. It is famous for its great views (the village is west facing), its tranquility, the good food, wine and raki and for its hospitable and friendly residents. The village is surrounded by olive groves, fruit plantations, steep mountains and deep ravines. Restaurants in Mirsini Kathodon: a beautiful and cosy terrace within walking distance from the house. It serves traditional dishes and offers spectacular sea views. Another great restaurant is located in the neighbouring village of Mouliana, just 5 minutes drive from the house (it is open all year round during lunch and dinner hours). Shopping There is a small shop selling basic groceries in the village. For large supermarkets and a large wekkly fruit/vegetable market you will need to drive to Sitia town (30 min by car). If you prefer to avoid shopping we can stock the kitchen for you with all items you may need. The nearest pharmacy is located in the neighbouring village of Tourloti (5 minutes drive). Hiking If you prefer running water, lush vegetation and waterfalls, the entrance of Richtis gorge is a 15 minute drive by car, close to the nearby village of Exo Mouliana. The trail winds down the ravine for 4km passing from old bridges and abondoned watermills, through thick vegetation before reaching the sea at Richtis beach. If you choose to explore the mountains and the amazing views you can start from the nearby village of Lastros and head towards the chapel of Saint John and Kapsas peak or towards Saint Nikitas (5km round trip). Beaches The closest beach is in the village of Mochlos approximately 15min by car. The nearest large sandy beach is Tholos, at a distance of 20km towards Aghios Nikolaos. Sitia sandy beach is 23km drive from the house. There are various other great options available. We will provide information about the best beaches in the region. Sitia town It is the nearest town (at 23km from the house) with a large sandy beach, supermarkets, a weekly farmer's market and a hospital. For history and archaeology enthusiasts, Sitia's archeological museum display's exhibits dating back to the Neolithic era in 3,500 BC while the medieval fortress of Kazarma, situated at the top of Sitia is a reminder of the town's medieval past. Furthermore, the folklore museum exhibits items from the past century such as weavings, woodcuts and other everyday life items.

  • Nice stay in this rental. All the necessary with small attentions (local products: olive oil, wine, honey, etc.).

  • Picturesque location with wonderful hospitality! As a family of three (with a one year old) we spent one week in this beautiful accommodation in Mirsini. It is exactly what we needed and we enjoyed every minute of it. The village is stunning and Pantelis and Nikos were so welcoming. We especially enjoyed the welcome basket of wines, raki, olive oil and so much more. All from their own garden. Can thoroughly recommend!

    Lisa2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Nikos: we received the same warm and generous welcome we had last year - Nikos is a very caring person for the well-being of its guests - Thank you Nikos

  • The perfect cozy apartment for two in the lovely village of Mirsini and a great home base for exploring the area, including the amazing hike to the waterfall in Ritchis Gorge. Pantelis was so quick to respond to any questions I had, and the basket of wine, vinegar, olives and more that Nikos left was so thoughtful. He even brought by a watermelon. Highly recommended!

    Jean2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve had a great time at Panteli’s place. Outstanding hospitality, an overwhelming welcome package of food and drinks and a very clean and well equipped house. We strongly recommend to stay there!

    Tim2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice apartment located in a small picturesque village close to interesting sites. Very warm welcome and explanation of things to see and do. I recommend.

    Myriam2018-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • A pleasant rental in a small village above Mochlos. Place well placed to visit the east of Crete. The apartment is nicely decorated and functional. Nikos is a person of great kindness and good advice. A basket more than garni awaited us: wine, raki, holive oil, honey, various cupcakes, fruits, vegetables, ... all from his own production! An incredible hospitality! Do not hesitate to come to Mirsini at Nikos. Two tips: 1- make the beautiful gorge of Richtis and enjoy it for a drink or nibble at the Kantina (magnificent view of the sea), 2- go to dinner in the tavern Mirsini, everything is delicious!

    Stéphanie2018-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Nested among the olive’s trees, with amazing views on the coast, in a very sweet village, the Agrilos is a great value. Good vibes there In a nice furnished house, rustic chic ! We do love the terrace and the easy access. Perfect communication with Pantelis, we missed Nikos to tell him how wonderful are all the products he left in the huge basket, and the fridge too. No grocery in Mirsini, but you won’t starve... 100% recommended for people in search of real Crete, for a few days or even a full week.

  • 6 days in an exceptional accommodation: the house is superb with a fabulous view. Everything is in line with the description and the generosity of Nikos has no equivalent. We recommend warmly.

  • Great family week (3 children 7 years 5 years and 1.5 years). House very well equipped it lacks nothing (baby chair, croque machine ....) Exceptional welcome with a very well stocked basket and a fridge full of fruits and vegetables. Very beautiful, isolated and typical base for visiting the north of the ridge. The Richti Gorge 15 minutes are great with children (starting from the beach).

    Elise2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • It is not a house, but a kind of apartment, but you have the feeling of a house, because the terrace is very large and has a fantastic view. The apartment is located in a beautiful little mountain village. The car can be parked directly in front of the house or completely relaxed at the entrance of the village - from there it is not far. The grill could use well, as coal and lighters were there. It was totally quiet to relax and sleep. The tavern in town is perfect to satisfy the hunger in the evening. Otherwise, go to Mochos! And thank you again for the many gifts, even if not every wine was delicious. Great week here!

    Rajko2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this place. We had a more than perfect stay, I would add unforgettable. The house is beautiful, the people of the village are very welcoming and the food of the taverna located nearby is delicious. Special note to the warm and generous welcome of our host. Our visit to Agrilos was the best moment of our month-long stay in Crete.

    Marie2018-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • To recommend absolutely.Gentillesse et accueil ++++++++ !!!!!!!!

    Daniel2018-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful week in this very comfortable house and ideally located to discover the East of Crete. The main points of interest in this beautiful region are mostly located less than an hour from the peaceful village of Mirisini: Agios Nikolaos, Mochlos, The Richtis Gorge, Kato Zakros and the Valley of the Dead, not to mention the beautiful beaches east of Ieropetra (with a special mention for Aghia Fotia). The house has a large terrace with spectacular views of the perched villages of Eastern Crete, the hills planted with olive trees and the sea. The quality of the reception by Nikos deserves to be highlighted: when we arrived, a basket containing a selection of delicious local products (wines, raki, cakes, olives, local fruits ...) was generously offered; when we left, our two young children had the joy of receiving lovely handmade gifts. We also thank Pantelis for the perfect organization of our arrival and for his wise advice to discover this well preserved region. We highly recommend this rental and hope to have the chance to come back one day!

    Julien2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • We have already booked a few accommodations through airbnb, but the house of Nikos has exceeded everything. We spent our 1st holiday with our 8 month old daughter there and can definitely recommend the accommodation to families with babies. Everything on site is 1: 1 as shown in the pictures. Like everyone else, we were flashed by the view and the hospitality we were allowed to experience. When we arrived, Nikos already took care of everything and we found a full fridge and a gift basket with all its products. The decor is so great and we fell in love with all the details in the house. Mirsini is a sweet little original village. We were in the mini market, which is really mini and I have communicated with my hands and feet with the owner. There is a small tavern where you can eat delicious and from which you also have this amazing view.
