Tips for accommodation across the island. Choose a spot to make your home and use as a base to explore the island by car.

Villa Archontariki Pool
Villa Archontariki View

The restored mansion in the village of Kaliviani, named Villa Archontariki has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, private gardens and a pool, as well as relaxing private courtyard areas. Sleeping 10 guests in comfort, this is luxurious accommodation in Kaliviani.

44 km west of Chania and close to Balos Lagoon and Falasarna Beach. This village makes an ideal place to call home while exploring western Crete.

Meronas Eco House Entrance
Meronas Eco House with Raki

Meronas Eco House - sitting in the beautiful Amari Valley, this home with foundations of solid stone and chunky wood has been recently restored, with such care and attention to the traditional character of Crete, with even the original door locks in place.

Now open as a B&B or Agrotourism, or Eco House, what ever you wish to call it, it is a little piece of heaven, a slice of the life of Crete hidden behind these doors, with years of slow cooking and living close to the land.

Manolis and his mother, Mrs Eleftheria, will look after you, the visitor will be able to appreciate and experience the local customs of bread making, olive harvesting, herb collecting and of course, farming, first hand. Located just 30km from Rethymnon and very central to the whole island.

Matala Caves Seafront Apartment
Matala Caves Seafront Apartment View

Matala Caves Seafront Apartment

You just can't go past the romantic beach of Matala with its sandstone caves and rocky peninsula. Add the crystal clear water and this bayside apartment, a cold glass of ouzo... and you're there!

Located just next door to a wonderful seafood and fish taverna, which has late night music of traditional folk music, this is a place for fun and romance, then some more romance followed by more fun...

Matala is 66 km from Heraklion town, located on the south coast of Crete looking over the Bay of Messara.

Sitia Windmill Crete
Sitia Windmill Crete

The Sitia Windmill is located 5 km from town and is a real restored windmill, the modern touches creating a wonderful, unique atmosphere in which to enjoy your stay in eastern Crete.

With plenty of indoor and outdoor space, patios and terraces, full kitchen and dining areas, as well as extensive gardens and olive groves, this is a private, relaxing homey place to stay.

Strofilia Villas Crete

Strofilia Villas are located in a lush, green forested region just behind the beaches of Georgioupolis Crete on the Drapano Cape. The silence and authenticity of this beautifully restored village home will take your breath away.

Mary, your host, will be there to provide local raki and home-made goodies to make sure you get your breath back!

A vehicle is suggested for this accommodation, as you can explore the region, being only 30 km from Chania town. Enjoy your natural peace whilst making Georgioupolis Crete your 'home beach'.

"The hosts are so warm and hospitable, it felt like we were staying with family. The location is perfect - so peaceful with beautiful views but close to lots of villages, beaches and towns when you want to explore. The fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese, pastries and wine offered to us daily were delicious. We had a magical stay."
