About the property

Two bedrooms Villa, sleep 4/5, all with seaview and balcony

Go beyond the tourist eye: A collection of 9 villas owned by a Cretan couple who are looking forward to welcoming you to this beautiful part of Crete. More than a holiday – St George’s Retreat offers you the opportunity to truly experience all that Crete has to offer. Whether that’s learning about the island’s history, sampling the food from some of the best tavernas or indulging in the fruits that grow freely in the Retreat, this is a Cretan experience to remember. As you might expect, with villas of this calibre, all are fully equipped to the highest of standards and there are also two shared pools and a large BBQ area containing both a BBQ spit and traditional baking oven – perfect for meeting and making new friends. Situated high up in the village of Kokkino Chorio – spectacular views of the island and Bay of Souda await anybody who chooses to stay here.

Special discounted prices are available for groups who wish to book 3 or more villas. Contact the owner for details.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

The second time that we had visited the villas. This in our mind is the perfect holiday, for relaxation for us and for our son Charlie. On this occasion Charlie (2 1/2) joined in the grape harvest and crushing of the grapes. It was just fabulous.

Steefanos and Roula are the most amazing, friendly hosts, Roula often brought us lovely home made treats to the villa.

We would highly recommend this holiday to any and plan to return next year.
