Sophia runs this apartments for rent located just outside the centre of the village of Matala. The apartments (we have changed room twice because we decided to stay longer) are all new, well equipped, clean, nice refurbished and believe it's not easy to find a place so professionally run. Once you get in you can be sure you don't need anything...just look for what you need you'll find it...and the rooms are cleaned every single day even if these are apartments. Sophia is nice, sweet and of great help. Stay here when in Matala and you will come back.

Room Tip: ask Sophia if you have any request about rooms...she'll find out

My wife,14yr-old daughter and I totally loved our time at Xenophon apartments. We had a top floor apartment (2nd floor) which was spacious, well equipped and the balcony was like having our own taverna - large area with clothed table and ample beer + wine on tap from the kitchen! Great view over the nearby mountains too. A 10 minute walk to the centre of Matala meant we were also away from any noise late at night but Matala on the whole is not a nightclubbers resort anyway. The hippy feel still prevails today.
Everyone working at Xenophon was friendly and the free wi-fi, mozzie devices, books, help on places to visit etc was over and above what we normally experience in Crete. First Class!

Room Tip: The 2nd (highest) floor seems to have more spacious & private balconies if you are not too keen with interacting with your temporary neighbours,

We would recommend this accommodation to anyone. They are clean, well equipped, have free air-con, free safety deposit boxes in the room, free wi-fi and the apartments have nice decorative touches to make them more personal than the usual 'sterile' apartments. There are also little things that are appreciated like a mosquito plug and pads, candle holders and a welcoming email from Sophia, the lovely lady who has these apartments. It informed us of reception opening times and our room number if we arrived when reception was closed. She has a baby so works in the morning but supplies her mobile number if she's needed. All in all a fab accommodation which we wouldn't hesitate to go back to.

Room Tip: Would ask for a room that wasn't on the ground floor, but only for the sake of a view!

Arrived in Matala by bus. Nobody in reception at apartments when we arrived (there was never anybody at reception). This however wasn't an issue. Owner lived locally and dropped by occasionally (mobile number available at reception). Everything was included including locked safe, air-conditioning, well-equipped kitchen and a welcome-pack. A cleaner called every day. This apt suited our needs perfectly as we spent all our time at the beaches and in town and stayed in a couple of nights and cooked. Didn't think the 300 metres to the beach would be an issue but on the very hot days would have preferred a shorter walk or an apartment with a pool. Great value apartments and we will return.

The apartments owner rang us to arrange checkin time as were staying early in the season and we were given an upgrade which was a bonus. There was a welcome pack inside the room with details about the area including the info on the market in Mires. (Saturdays, worth the visit for cheap souvlaki, fresh fish and vegetables)
The apartment was clean, comfortable and had a very well equipped kitchen. A complimentary Mosquito plug was also provided. The view from the balcony was great - looking out onto the valley.
The location is approximately 5 minutes walk to the beach and center of town. All the usual mini markets & bus stop are close by.
