We stayed at this place based on good reviews written by others and we were not at all disappointed. We were travelling in low season with children. Our youngest liked the comfortable beds, the gifts of nuts and apples and meeting the cats. Our eldest liked the cozy bed. Everyone felt welcome around Marianna and her inviting parents. It is a base for exploring Since we visited in early November, the nearby pizzeria was closed most days and we did not shop at the British-style mini market but we found many things to eat and enjoy in the sourrounding villages.

Thanks to Marianna and her parents for this lovely stay. For people looking to relax and experience some of the genuine village life and culture of rural Crete this is ideal. We were welcomed warmly by Marianna and her parents with baskets of fresh fruits and wine, which immediately introduced us to Cretan village hospitality and friendliness. The house is beautifully set and decorated inside as well as out in the courtyard. It is squeaky clean and comfortable and the village silence is so relaxing. It is well located very close to larger villages and to beaches. Highly recommended for anyone looking to live for a bit in the Cretan village tranquility, hosted by caring and friendly local people.

Marianna's house was amazing. I am so happy that we have stayed there and experienced her & her family's hospitality. It is located in a very sweet village called Litsarda and has a great garden. It is perfectly decorated with local details and when we arrived it was perfectly clean. I could approach Marianna whenever I needed so the communication was also very good. You will enjoy sitting under the avacado tree in the garden and sipping your coffee, great treats such as house wine, cretan raki, grapes, jams, eggs... I would strongly recommend anyone to stay at her place.

Marianna's house is exceptional. The spacious, airy rooms of this old stone house were cool even in the 35-40 degree heatwave; the beds were wonderfully comfortable with crisp cotton sheets; the living areas were furnished with traditional Cretan textiles and lovely antique furniture and the fridge was stuffed with gorgeous fresh fruit. Marianna and her family greeted us like old friends rather than paying guests. Nothing was too much trouble for this lovely family. In the middle of our stay the showed us round the tiny museum of artefacts from the past generations of their family who had lived in the houses around their courtyard: a massive loom, cheese moulds, bread ovens and wonderful specimens of weaving and embroidery. This place is a treasure. Thank you to Marianna and her family for sharing it with us.

Πολύ καλή τοποθεσία, βολεύει η απόσταση για πολλές παραλίες είτε Βόρεια είτε Νοτια της Κρήτης, βέβαια για τους νόμους Χανίων και Ρεθύμνου. Η φιλοξενία ήταν καταπληκτική και οι ιδιοκτήτες ευγενέστατοι. Στο σπίτι μας περίμεναν πολλά τοπικά προϊόντα και όχι μόνο, από τους ιδιοκτήτες.Ιδανικό για ήσυχες και οικογενειακές διακοπές στην ούτως ή άλλως όμορφη Κρήτη.
