Self Catering holidays in Gavalohori, Crete

Our traditional village houses are lovingly restored and fully equipped

Hi there!  We are Jo and Alan Boyd – the very proud owners of two lovely village houses in Gavalohori, Crete which we fell in love with the minute we saw them. Having finally realized our dream of a place in the sun we are determined to ensure our guests really enjoy their stay, relax and recover from day to day stresses life has thrown at them!

We look forward to welcoming new guests and of course our returnees who now seem like friends. So they too can experience the peace and tranquillity of the accommodation and all this beautiful area of Crete has to offer.

Watch the video and explore the local area as well as the cottages inside and out:

You can also now book a wonderful massage with our professional therapist who offers treatments tailored to your individual needs in the comfort of your own cottage (subject to booking). You can also now arrange for a private transfer from the airport and hire of a driver for a half day or more, please contact us for details.

Guests’ feedback is actively encouraged to ensure that precious holiday time is as good as it can be and that people will want to return. Indeed we hope that some of the helpful comments we have had our returnees will see we have put in place so many thanks to them.

So say goodbye to the package holiday and experience the freedom of the independent traveller. Both of our houses are secluded within stone walls & courtyards, each having private parking and entrance gates. Courtyards with fruit trees, terracotta pots with flowers, and bougainvillaeas provide shade and colour.
