We loved our 3 day stay in the mountain house . A real taste of Greek culture and experience. The air is so fresh and what fantastic views from every window . The facilities were great and the house had everything you need to prepare meals for family . Sitting on the terrace at night was magnificent looking over the valley and so quiet . Would definitely return .
Despina's mountain house was amazing! We arrived very late but Despina had 2 of her very handsome nephews drive us in and show us the house. I am glad because there was no way we cold have found it alone :) The house is big, beautifully decorated, has modern updates and was perfect for our group of 5. The location is remote (just what we wanted) but the village isn't far and had a fully stocked supermarket (the owners were very hospitable and gave us a bottle of Raki!), bakery and a few taverna's where we ate some of the most delicious & fresh Cretan food on all of Crete! The patio was wonderful with a breath taking view of the mountain, hills and cute sheep with their bells ringing away! We utilized it daily and even spent a warm evening playing games and having drinks on it for hours. The pool was clean and refreshing and we were in it often after long days in the heat and touring. Morning and midnight dips as well :) The only suggestions I have for future renters is: Bring bug spray (mosquitoes galore), rent a small car as parking is very tight, be prepared to drive for hours on a very windy road to go anywhere else and if you arrive late, make sure you have some snacks as the town closes early. We had a sweet orange kitty visitor daily as well. She is a doll! Very loving and chatty. ^..^ Aside from those few minor issues......it was the best vacation we have had in years and we would rent Despina's house again and I will suggest it to friends and family!! The people of Crete were some of the warmest people we met in Greece!! Thank you Despina very much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful house!! Machelle & Adam Hollar and friends
We haed a wonderfull time in this tiny village, the view is stunning and the house is decorated with very good taste. It i far from all the crowded areas and a splendid place to rest while being still close from cities around. We would definitly recommend that place and hope to come back soon.
