Wonderful holiday

Marlies Roth and Despina

Marlies Roth and Despina

Another wonderful holiday in Mirtos has ended. This was our second time on Crete, the second time in Mirtos and the second time at Villa Nostos. No better place to be if you ask me. The rooms we stayed were simple but spacious enough to also sit inside to eat, read or play games when (- in January -) it was too cold and wet to sit on the balcony.  The atmosphere at Villa Nostos is very cosy and you feel easily at home thanks to the caring and welcoming host Despina and Maria, her wonderful assistant.

Despina treats her guests rather as friends or family members than customers. And indeed many guests have a long tradition of staying with Despina, some came with their parents and now spend their holidays with their own children here.

Very often you hear people say that if you have been to Mirtos once, you always come back. For us, it seems true for Mirtos and also for Villa Nostos and we are happy that we were able to book again for our next holidays with Despina which is not so easy as Villa Nostos is very popular among visitors coming to Mirtos.

    The best way to explore the beautiful sceneries of Crete is something that can only truly be done on foot.

    This year was the first time I stayed at Nostos and it was very pleased. So close to the boulevard, the sea and the taverne’s. Very pleasant and quiet. I got totally spoiled with sweet
    Nostos is like coming home, every year again! No luxes but great location, at the seaside and getting spoiled by Despina and Maria. Nostos is thuiskomen, elk jaar weer. Geen luxe, wel pracht
