We spent 2 weeks.The house "Persephone" had every comfort.From the two large teraces has a wonderful view of the sea and the surroundings of Ierapetra.The village Anatoli is very quiet, you can relax. By the way, we had our own racing bikes. From here it is also an ideal starting point for cycling tours(you need good fitnes).Good roads-little traffic-frindly people.We...

Dear Josefa and husband It was a pleasure reading your review and the way you enjoyed Persephone House and the environment of Anatoli. Thank you very much and see you again hopefully.

The house looked great in the photos and the reviews were very encouraging so we decided to rent he place for one day. Unforunately, we soon found out that the house was quite dusty since my allergies acted up after a while. The glasses were smelly, probably from being in a cupboard for too long. Although nothing could be done...

Dear Maria and 13 other guests on that famous New Year’s Eve (although the house was rented for 6 guests) I would like to remind you that it is the 3rd New Year Eve you are renting the house at a very special, discounted price and that you didn’t pick it up from the pictures or the reviews. As I...

She afterwards asked for more money because of using the firewoods for the fireplace , even if it was included in the price. I have to mention that there weren't enough firewoods and we brought some more from our house. We also left there the woods we brought and didn't burn but she still asked for more money. Terrible behavior.

Dear Manos and 13 more friends that stayed in the house (although booked for 6 persons) I don't know whose idea was to use the fireplace for cooking 20 kilos of meat. The house has a stove with an oven and I don't permit the fireplace to be used for cooking, but only for staying around it for atmosphere. You...

The behaviour of the owner was crude , unprofessional and discourteous. The house was dirty with dusty glasses and cobwebs in the shower. Even if we had predetermined the price of the accomodation, she afterwards asked for more money.

Dear Katerina +13 other young friends of yours (despite our agreement for 6 guests) that stayed in our country house for New Years Eve.

This is a very attractive conversion of an old property into a comfortable & well-equipped house. There is a cosy feel with the stone walls, traditional fireplace & tasteful furniture. There are also two terraces with beautiful views . We valued the advice on local historical sites & restaurant recommendations provided by the owner

This was a return visit because we love this spot so much and were made to feel so welcome by Ioanna. Last trip we stayed in Pasiphae and ths time in Persephone. Both houses are fantastic. Beautifully and lovingly restored and elegantly furnished. The multiple terraces are fantastic and we especially enjoyed evenings and sunrises from the top terrace in...

We loved our stay at the Dorovinis houses. The location, the view, the cute village, the very clean and very well equipped houses made for a relaxing and unique vacation experience. We enjoyed the 'quiet' at night and the food at the local tavernas. We cannot wait to go back.

We very much enjoyed our 11 nights in Ioanna's beautifully restored stone house. It was comfortably furnished, nicely decorated, and very well equipped in terms of seating, towels, dishes, and kitchen tools and staples. The beds are comfortable: there are two queen-bed bedrooms as well as an open-loft bedroom that can sleep another two. The largest bedroom has an ensuite...

We spent two nights in the Smaragda House in Anatoli. The house is very nice, tastefully decorated with a nice bedroom separate from the living space and the kitchen. The bed and furniture are quite comfortable. We enjoyed excellent sleeps with no sounds other than the chirping of birds. The bathroom is a bit small but that is understandable given...

We spent wonderful three weeks in the Pasiphae House an oasis of silence and cosiness situated in the small and friendly village Anatoli in the mountains of Crete. The wooden furniture and the stylish armchairs that are arranged in a tasteful way and the walls of stone give the house a very rustic but cozy atmosphere. The house is well...
