“We had a lovely week in Annie's beautifully renovated traditional house in the hill-top village of Tourloti. It is very well-equipped and has a large verandah upstairs with magnificent views of the mountains and sea. The villagers were very friendly and there are several kafenions, a small supermarket and a basic taverna in the village. the streets are very narrow in places and you cannot drive right up to the house but there is plenty of room to park in the village square. There are several beaches nearby with safe swimming. Our favourite and nearest seaside 'resort'(Mochlos) was very quaint and laid back with some excellent tavernas. There are plenty of places to visit and plenty of hiking trails in the area - otherwise it is a great place to relax and recharge your batteries! ”

“Amazing village with 360 degree views. Annie was great and the place was amazing. Thanks for letting us stay!”
“This property was all I longed for going back to a typical Greek village where we were the only tourists and I could practice my Greek with the most friendly locals. We had 2 couples arrive and we made great use of the incredible deck overlooking the coastline below and hills behind where we'd hiked during the day. Cooking meals together with fantastic local food and dining in candle-light on the deck was magical. This was one of the most memorable trips to Greece I've had and would highly recommend (and have :), connecting with Annie. She is a jewel. *Annie - am so sorry to see that my original review somehow did not go through! With much gratitude 2+ years later, *sally”
“Well we loved Annie's traditional mountain village home so much we couldn't bear to leave! Annie graciously agreed to let us book an extra two days to our trip and, other than visiting Mochlos for dinner – Dimitri's is fantastic – we stayed put and didn't leave 'home'. Thank you again!”
“What a hidden gem! We absolutely loved Annie's sensitively restored traditional Cretan village home – beautifully and accurately described on this site. The photos simply can't do justice to the mesmerising sea-and-mountain views! The temptation is to stay on the large terrace soaking up those divine views, curled up with a good book or tucking into a home-cooked meal (prepared in the well-stocked kitchen). And it's true that one could stay quite comfortably here without venturing far – the village has a taverna and a few traditional coffee shops and the villagers are very friendly and welcoming; our neighbour gifted us with pomegranates freshly plucked from her tree). It's also a fantastic base for exploring eastern Crete, and there is so much to see. Just 5 km away is Mochlos with its fab sea-front seafood restaurants and swimmable-to island with Minoan ruins. There are wonderful gorge walks in the area, and stunning drives take you to eastern Crete's best beaches, cultural and historic areas. After a day's hiking or sight-seeing, we were always so happy to return 'home' to such a comfortable, well-equipped house. Thank you Annie! ”
“Beautiful place that we loved so much. A real village experience. Lovely people, cozy and quaint, stunning deck. Its quiet with no Wifi or TV, but this was very very nice. Little village restaurants with wifi when you need it. Will return again.”
