The perfect choice for a quiet, romantic, island holiday.

This is an eco-friendly, traditional village house. It is located on the mountainside of southern Crete, with amazing views of the sea and fantastic beaches only 9 km away. It overlooks the sea beyond a landscape of olive terraces and rock formations.

The village, Agios Ioannis, is a beautiful, traditional, remote village with historical ruins. It provides a small taverna with amazing, home-cooked, organic food, coffee, local wine and ‘raki’. Of course, the house is fully-equipped for cooking as well.

The house was renovated in 2008 in the traditional architectural style, with mudbrick walls and old wooden beams. It has a beautiful patio with jasmine flowers and other plants in a walled front yard of an old, ruined house.

A car is needed to reach the village and move around. Parking of the cars is on the main road; from there you need to walk to the house which is only a few steps away, since no cars are allowed in the village.

Supermarkets, pharmacies and other amenities are close the beach, exactly 9km away, in Koutsounari.
Holidays here can be a rare combination of beaches and mountains. You can walk, bicycle, hike, or drive around the mountains and other small villages. Or, you can choose to lie on the beautiful beaches down the hill, to enjoy the sun and seafood.

This is also a perfect choice for artists, writers and musicians. If needed, studio space can also be found on request.

We spent a week at varvara's retreat at the beginning of September and it was absolutely perfect for us. Beautifully designed with everything you could need, in a wonderful atmospheric Cretan village, secluded from hustle, noise and other tourists but within easy reach of tons of great beaches and restaurants. Varvara was very helpful and gave us some great recommendations for places to eat and visit. To be honest we were very lazy and just spent most of our time either sitting in one of the patios, or next to the wide open windows with the panoramic view of mountains and sea in the top floor living area, or lying on the beach and swimming in the clear blue sea. We have come away so relaxed, I'm not sure how to readjust to London life! Would definitely go back to this tranquil gem.

Very nice, cosy and well equiped house in a very quiet place. The view is perfect. For us everything was ok, ideal for those who want to spend time far from busy places.

The house is a heaven of relaxation and good taste. It is built in the traditional architecture style of the Agios Ioannis village with a gorgeous courtyard with jasmine and lemon trees. It offers panoramic views of the sea and is located in one of the most beautiful villages in eastern Crete. Because the village is built on the mountain side it is always cool and breezy, even when the temperatures at sea level are high. The village of Agios Ioannis is perfectly located to allow you to explore the south-eastern part of Crete. Make sure you visit the village taverna ( there is only one) to taste amazing local delicacies at a very low price. The village is away from the noisy sea-side and you are guaranteed to feel like one of the locals! Will definitely return and stay here again!

Nous n'avons pas rencontré Varvara mais un ami à elle qui nous a ouvert la maison. Comme le montre les photos, tout y est joli, décoré avec beaucoup de goût, dans un style naturel. La maison est située dans un petit village charmant de montagne (9 km de route avec virages pour y arriver !) où il n'y a pas de commerces. Nous avons été déçu par le bord de mer proche. les plages ne sont pas jolies, souvent très ventées et entourées de serres en plastique. Il faut rouler beaucoup pour retrouver un environnement préservé. Pas de wifi dans la maison mais une ambiance qui donne envie de s'y reposer. Nous aurions aimé avoir quelques conseils de lieux à voir proche de la maison.

Thank you Sylvie for your critic. I would like to make clear that there is wifi in the house but because it works through satellite, sometimes the signal falls. You just had to inform me so I would send someone to fix it.

Très jolie petite maison, décorée avec charme et délicatesse. un village encore un peu détruit, qui reprend vie avec sens et goût. Une montagen sauvage et belle, la vie y est douce, le bar 55 et le café du coin très accueillants. Magnifique séjour, merci à Varvara.

We had an outstanding time at Varvara's house. The view is spectacular and the location is away from the busy coast yet close enough to all the amenities we needed. We would certainly do a repeat a visit
