Critamo Cottage is an amazingly restored and fully equipped old stone house up in the Cretan hills (there is even a pink washing machine). Sheep are living right behind the backwall. Best thing is the wonderful own private courtyard which is the best living room to spend a relaxed day and evening. It is quiet and makes You feel at home once You arrive. Try both kafenions in the close village of Gavalochori. Kelly and Sofia are the most caring and thoughtful Hosts You could ask for. They even provided a private little pool for our son. There dayly visits soon fell like there are friends popping by. Spending Your time at Critamo is the best thing You could do on Crete. We will love to come back soon.
All was very nice; extreamly nice. Loved it! Kelly, the manager, is a perfect guide. You need nothing else!
Greece!!!What an amazing country!!! Crete!!! What a beautiful island with generous, gracious hospitality!!! All of these values are reflected in a stay at the Critamo Cottage, in historic Gavalochori, not far from Chania, just a 30-hour drive. A cottage so well preserved yet with that feel of serenity and simplicity that perfectly match its surrounding.
Kelly is a perfect host, a local herself with a vast knowledge of her island and especially her region, Chania. She is an amazing and kind woman, a world-traveller hereself who is always there to help and to extend hospitality at its highest level, thank you very much!
This is a great house 200 years old and was perfect for our group of friends.
You have an experience form the past with the services of today. Kelly was great and extremely helpful! The are is lovely to be explored and just 10-15mins from the beach. the yard is tranquil to have breakfast and evening drinks! Try the tavernas at the village, delicious!
Great experience overall!
