This place is lovely: all is perfect for making you feel cared for!
The setting is quiet, the view is astonishing and the smells of the Mediterranean sorround you. What do you need more? Oh yes, the professional yet personal touch of Ioanna and the hand made confitures and cookies you'll find in the kitchen.
We'll be back soon!

We had a wonderful 8 days at Koutsounari traditional cottages. We arrived during a particularly windy week and our original cottage had a quite exposed terrace. The wonderful Joanna offered us a more sheltered cottage the next day for the remaining stay. The cottages are tastefully decorated with simple, local furnishings with great attention to detail. Our cottage had three separate places to sit outside to seek shade, or sun. The beds were comfortable, the linen do good quality and the cottages cool at night. The location is removed from the main road but within walking distance to the sea. Joanna is on hand to direct you to secluded beaches or interesting places to visit. The walk at the gorge of the dead from Zakros to kato Zakros is highly recommended. Lots of local restaurants to sample Greek cuisine and while away the hours. A truly lovely time was spent here and we hope to visit again soon.

Experience the micro - scale, original houses from the village, which respect naturally nature its rescources and Crete's history. Our Hostess Mrs Mandala was very kind to tell us the story of the place as well as the role of Mrs. Nakou in establishing a small scale luxrious yet authenic hotels in Crete. Well done for keeping the place in such imaculate condition! We really enjoyed the visit and thank you for the fantastic Cretan hospitality.

A Huge Thank you for your comments regarding the preservation of this settlement that was converted into Koutsounari Traditional Cottages. Coming from you it is an honor. The story of Eleni Nakou is one of those that deserve to be told. Such a pioneer in the hotel industry and ahead of her time.
Thank you again, and I look forward to welcoming you again.
Best Regards,
Ioanna Madala
