Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 June 2012

A perfect B&B. Beautifully renovated. Great hospitality. Clean and comfortable rooms with the feel of a boutique hotel. Very well cared breakfast. Lovely garden with pool and sunbeds. A spectacular sunset from the roofterrace. Non touristic village, close to the sea.
We spend a great week. Enjoying several beaches and villages as well as Lagolio and the Old Kafenion.

We stayed in the village of Pitsidia and rented "the Karolina House" and stay there during one week.Perfect location in the village with a beautiful view, this location is very quiet and beautiful renovation of the entire batiment.Inside is very comfortable and everything is thought, several terraces can enjoy all the views. Short stay enchanting and ideal to rest away from all disturbances. Rent a car for for many visits around

Our first holliday in Crete was a very nice experience not only because South Crete is a very beautifull region of this island with friendly people, but also because The Old Kafenion is a really good Bed&Breakfast. An authentic and comfortably restaured house in a small village, 7 km above the coast, with a great view, beautifull rooms, nice swimming pool with deckchairs, tasty breakfasts and above all a very kind host couple who gives very good advise about interesting things to do in the broad neigbourhood. There is a lot of varied activities to do: nature walks in the mountains and in canyons, car trips, culture, archeological sites, afternoons on the beach, small cosy villages,... The Old Kafenion is a great place to stay those who are looking for a quite and authentic holliday in Southern Crete in an interesting region where you still can feel the local spirit and have a nice contact with the Belgian owners of this B&B . If you rather want a touristic holliday with luxuary hotels and lot of animation, look for a hotel in Norhern Crete.
