This is a very dreamy get-away! Great house, very relaxing atmosphere, in great location with a selection of nice beaches near by. Would come back again any time!

The villa is set in a quiet area outside of Agia Fotia near Sitia. It is spacious, very close to the sea, and has a lovely garden. All amenities are there for a comfortable stay. Shops and supermarkets are nearby in Sitia and there is a restaurant within walking distance. We used the villa as our base camp for exploring the east of Crete, which is gorgeous. Rather unspoiled by mass tourism, it is a great place for people that want to enjoy the nature of the Island. Perivolakia, Pefi, and Zakros gorges are within a short drive, as is Touplou monstery and Vai palm tree beach. We highly recommend the place for families, with or without kids, and people enjoying nature and quiet.

The villa was fabulous and exceeded our expectations. The arrival was flawless following the hostess directions. The location is secluded, but with good connection to Sitia and beautiful beaches. The local beach is rocky, but we loved to just sit down and stare at the horizon. The accommodations had everything that we needed for 4 adults and one toddler. BBQ is available.

We didn't meet Anna, she was away, but we met Anna's friend Viatsa who was waiting for us in the street, since the place is not easy to find on your own, she went with us to the house, she was very nice & helpful The place is quite secluded, great for nature lovers, nice sea view.

Anna's place will make you feel like you're all alone in the world, and what a world. The few neighbooring houses (2, one for the owners and the other one for rental I believe) are not intrusive, and provide all the privacy you need. The ocean is spreading in front of your eyes. Bring water shoes as it is pebbles. Others beaches nearby have sand. Anna was not there in person as her and her family were away for a few weeks, but she gave us the contact of her friend way in advance, who was here to greatly welcome us. More generally, I found the location perfect : this part of eastern Crete is absolutely not touristic, and is a great starting point for adventures such as Zakros, hike to Kato Zakros (must-do) and Pelekita cave (may be good to book a guide, or at least proper equipment for this huge cave exploring), all the beaches around Vai (Hiona, Itanos (must-do), and others), Exo Mouliana hike (to cascade and beach) and the small city of Sitia (5mn drive). The house is beautiful, very clean, has the basics you need, with a great eco-friendly construction. We asked Anna for towels and she provided regular and beach towels. This house feels truly great. AC in the rooms, which you need in summer, none upstairs in the living room area though but I guess the amazing view from the giant glass windows make up for it. Great WIFI, no TV (thank god). Decorated with taste. I greatly recommend staying there if you want an authentic and luxury-feeling experience in a calm and beautiful environment !

We really enjoyed our stay at Anna's. The house is great: spacious, quiet, comfortable, perfect for our family (4). The view from very part of the house is fantastic, and even the sober design and furnishing blends into the landscape. We especially liked the breakfast and the evenings on the pleasant terrace in front of the sea. The location is perfect if you want to visit the wonderful east coast down to Xerocambos. We did not meet Anna even if we were in contact all the time, but Andrey who welcomed us was friendly and helpful. A very good place!!
