Stayed 12 nights in April 2015 in Villa Thalia at this spectacular location. Everything starting to bloom on Crete, no crowds yet, sheep and goats and birds are all you can hear. The views are absolutely amazing. Roula is a superb hostess who treated us to seriously good homemade baked goods and moussaka throughout our stay. The fridge in the...

wonderful holiday experience at St. George's retreat. Villa was beautiful, ample size and had all the amenities needed and more. Roula and Stefanos were exemplary hosts, who were both friendly helpful and generous, often provided with delicious homemade treats. The surrounding area was perfect, picking fruit off the trees whenever we needed and relaxing by the pool, which although small,...

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks at St George's Retreat with our 2 children, and found it to be perfect in every way. The photos don't really do it justice as the flowering plants and fruit trees are now well established, and the quality of accommodation and furnishings are very good. There are lots of beaches & taverna's within either...

They had supplied us with all the basics for our first day or two - coffee, wine, beer, bread, milk, etc. Roula had even baked us a delicious chocolate cake! Our first evening they came by with...

These villas are just perfect. The fruit trees and herbs surrounding the villas make for an inspiring environment to cook your own food. The villas are clean and just perfect size with everything you need for a family. The trip is coming to an end and I wish I could come every year to this very special place. I recommend...

This little village of 9 independent units (houses) offers the most magnificent backbone to a honeymoon, a family vacation or a get-together vacation for friends. The experience from the very beginning was more than excellent - making the reservation and deposit payment was easy, when I requested a few preparations as this was our honeymoon, the reply was simply "consider...

The name "Retreat" is very much appropriate!, that's the word that drew us into researching and finally booking this stay at Stefanos and Roula's villas. We were made most welcome by Katarina and the Stefanos came to see us and explained the area, where to go and eat etc and where to explore, nothing was too much bother. When we...

We had a wonderful two weeks at St George's Villa Retreat. It's been said many times before, but Stefanos and Roula really are amazing hosts. We arrived at 11pm and were welcomed with open arms.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
About the Retreat: The Retreat Village is situated just below the famous St. George's Retreat cave. The complex benefits from extensive cultivated gardens, olive trees, a vineyard with its own wine press, and a large number of fruit trees, which the guests are free to taste. They are ideal for families and friends who would like to holiday together, but still maintain their private space. There are discounts available for groups who wish to book 3 or more villas. Contact the owner for details. There are two shared pools and a large BBQ area containing both a BBQ spit and traditional baking oven, while the tavern situated high up above the villas will take care of any appetite desire. The village of Kokkino Chorio is 5 minutes drive away while Plaka and Almyrida villages are a further 5 minutes drive each. ... more   less
