Nydelig, lite studio-house i Sfakia på Kretas sørkyst.  Sfakia er navnet på hele kommunen, Chora Sfakion er hovedlandsbyen, en vakker og historierik landsby med hvitvaskede hus, et kupert landskap med høye fjell i ryggen, og nydelig utsikt til den omkringliggende kysten og ”The Big Blue”.

Boligens navn kommer fra den hvite brønnen i hagen til eiendommen. I gamle-dager forsynte denne brønnen hele landsbyen med vann, og var et samlingssted for beboerne.

Sfakia er utgangspunktet for mangfoldlige opplevelser langs den lange vakre sørkysten. Eier av huset driver virksomhet med dykkesenter, båtutleie, arrangerte båtturer, og båt-taxi, og gjester hos Notos Well får spesialpriser.

Traumhaus Das Haus ist ein Traum und wir haben uns super wohl dort gefühlt. The house is super nice, with a beautiful view and very well equipped. We had a wonderful stay. Shops and tavernas are easily accessible, only a 5 minute walk. The host was super nice, and offered a warm welcome, with very good advices.

Dan August 2021

The house is a perfect relaxing spot. Amazing view, very clean, has all you need. We where welcomed by Christina who was very helpful and friendly. The area is one of the best in crete if you're looking for beautiful beaches, great cretan food and amazing natural beauty.

Glynn August 2021

A wonderful place to stay, stylish and special. Great position, up a hill, with view over the bay and sheep as neighbours. We loved the atmosphere. Sfakia is a delightful village too, with great tavernas. A quiet relaxing place, just what we wanted. Alexandra and Christina are prompt and attentive hosts. We’d love to come back.

Tanja August 2021

Traumhaus Das Haus ist ein Traum und wir haben uns super wohl dort gefühlt.

Ashley June 2021

This was our best air bnb experience to date. The home is even more fabulous than it appears. (Though I would say that the walk to the village and beach might be considered a challenge for those with mobility issues. There is parking in the village if walking is not your jam.). Alexandra’s communication was always timely, clear and thorough. She and her counterpart Damulis made sure that our every need and interest was addressed. Having a local connection in Damulis meant no worries and being treated like family by those in the village. Ευχάριστω πολλή for a magical experience. We cannot wait to return!

Frank December 2020

Very dreamy, perfect place!

Joseph November 2020

Es war ein Ideales Haus für uns 2 , sehr gut ausgestattet, herrlicher Blick, sehr guter Ausgangspunkt für tolle Wanderrouten im spektakulären Südwesten! Selbst der Lockdown beeinträchtigte uns am Ende wenig. Kommen gerne wieder .

Andrea September 2020

Sehr schönes Haus am oberen Ortsrand Das Haus liegt in ruhiger Lage am oberen Ortsrand mit Blick auf die Bucht, Meer und Berge. Die Gestaltung ist modern und offen. Im Erdgeschoss finden sich eine große Küche, ein Bad und ein offener Raum zum Verstauen der Kleidung. Im mittleren Geschoss ein großer Wohnraum mit riesigem Panoramafenster und schönem Blick. Über eine weitere Treppe erreicht man auf der Galerie den offenen Schlafbereich (super Betten!). Ein absolutes Highlight ist der Terrassenbereich, schön gestaltet und wunderbar zum Sitzen unter dem alten Zitronenbaum. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt! Empfang und Verabschiedung durch den Hausbesitzer waren herzlich und professionell. Die Kommunikation mit Alexandra von der vermittelnden Agentur ebenfalls perfekt.

Howard September 2020

Notos Well was brilliant from day one. Spread over three floors with a fully equipped kitchen, beautiful furniture and air conditioning. Scrupulously clean and supplied with toiletries for the bathroom and wine in the fridge. The view from the large balcony was absolutely stunning sea, sky, mountains and the odd sheep. Outside a small paved area shaded by a lemon tree with barbecue and sun loungers (beach towels provided) behind this there were chickens (free eggs) and a vegetable garden for our salad supplies. Our host was nearby and nothing was too much trouble. Perfection indeed.

Yaima September 2020

One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. The house is great and the town and nature that surrounds it are impressive. We really enjoyed having breakfast under the lemon tree overlooking the ocean. Damulis, the owner is one of the nicest people in the world. We met him shortly but he earned a place in our hearts. Thank you so much Alexandra, it would be really wonderful to be back <3

Lisa September 2020

Very nice and clean apartment. Amazing view and super quiet. Damulis is a great host and very welcoming. Highly recommend.

Petra August 2020

We had a great vacation at Damulis' AirBnB. The house is situated on a slope with three levels. On the lower level you will find a functional spacious kitchen and household appliances, a bathroom and dressing room. On this level there is also a small private terrace outside the house. There you will find a table, bench and deck chairs. There is a lemon tree, which makes it wonderfully Mediterranean. Having breakfast there was idyllic, also because of the great view. On the middle level you will find an inviting couch and a terrace. One more level up is the sleeping area. Everything is tastefully furnished and very clean. In the garden grow figs, melons, aubergines, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes. We were allowed to take the fresh eggs from the chickens for breakfast. To the village with some taverns, a pharmacy, a minimarket and a very nice bakery it is about 10 minutes walk. Damulis was a great host and made sure that we felt completely comfortable. We also recommend to rent a boat from Damulis in Notos Mare. It is directly at the harbour and with the boats you can go to lonely bays and spend a nice day. We wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you, Damulis! :)

Kathryn August 2020

Fantastic stylish accommodation. Amazing views, plenty of room inside and out. Loved sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the stars at night. We loved our stay in Sfakia and Notos Wells House.

Maylis August 2020

Nous avons été super bien accueillis par Damulis, qui nous a expliqué la maison, l’accès au potager et au poulailler, il nous a fait goûter les tomates et les figues du jardin : un délice! Nous invitant à le solliciter quel que soit le sujet, il très sécurisant. Quelle joie de profiter du potager et des œufs frais! Damulis est aussi le propriétaire de Notos Mare, il loue des bateaux avec ou sans permis, organise des excursions plus lointaines et des plongées. Il a été extrêmement facilitant pour tout notre séjour. Sfakia est une chouette destination : excursions en bateau, randonnées, jolies plages, proximité avec la montagne (gorges d’Aradena, ou d’Imbros, l’accès à Samaria est un peu loin 3h00 de route), la Canée est à 1h15, très jolie ville à visiter. Bref, une agréable destination dans un environnement charmant, simple et authentique. Et si vous allez au lac de Kournas, arrêtez vous à la taverne de Georgia ( Georgia’s traditionnal Taverna) vous serez accueillis très chaleureusement et mangerez une cuisine délicieuse et traditionnelle : un bonheur!! A quelques minutes à pieds de la maison, en remontant, le café Thea, a une vue incroyable sur tout Sfakia avec des cocktails délicieux et une musique très agréable. Vous pourrez apprécier le coucher du soleil sur la montagne autrement que depuis les terrasses de la maison, c’est tout autant splendide. Cotés plages, Illingas recèle bien plus de trésors si vous l’explorer en nageant vers la gauche de la plage (caves communicantes) Marmara est très jolie, cette plage se situe à la sortie des gorges d’Aradena, magnifique randonnée à faire avec départ en taxi de la maison et se faire récupérer sur la plage par un taxi boat.

Robert October 2019

Great accommodation in a lovely location with very hospitable hosts. Thank you.

Ekkehard September 2019

Das Haus ist ein Traum und hat all unsere Erwartungen erfüllt. Man fühlt sich von der ersten Minute an wie zuhause. Die Umgebung wunderschön zum Wandern und Schwimmen

Sofia September 2019

Amazing getaway on the southern coast of Crete! The house is exactly as pictured, if anything it exceeded expectations in person! We were welcomed with wine and water in the fridge, and given a bottle of local olive oil as a goodbye gift from Stelios! Incredible views of the coast from the balcony, the house is nicely secluded from the actual town centre itself, but only about a 10 minute walk to get to all the restaurants and pier for activities. Make sure you take a private boat for the day from Notos Dive Centre, we had the best day visiting beautiful smaller beaches only accessible by boat, and did some amazing snorkeling! Thank you to Alexandra, Damilus, Joanna and Stelios for all your kind hospitality, we will definitely be back!

Geraldine August 2019

Lovely, stylish studio house… located about 10 minutes’ walk outside the town…bit of a steep walk but worth it if you like being away from the hustle and bustle. The house is very comfortable with the great benefit of a beautiful outdoor terrace where you can watch the sun go down over the bay. It was nice to have wine chilling in the fridge when we arrived and a plate of fruit available to us.

Nick July 2019

The pictures do this place justice, and even then it has something more! It is wonderful. The village is picture perfect, quiet but with a wonderful local community. There are lots of lovely tavernas looking out over the harbour which serve delicious local delicacies, including fresh fish caught locally. The beaches are quiet but active, with wonderful water full of fish for your snorkelling needs. Great local villages and walks too, and the host was brilliant – east contact throughout and so welcoming. The apartment is one of the best we have stayed in. You will love it all!

Peter July 2019

Lovely stay, enjoyed both the house, the village and the region! The house is exactly as advertised, stylish, clean and well situated a few hundred meters from the village center and the village beaches. Damoulis and Alexandra were both perfect hosts, and took great care of us. A few highlights: Collecting fresh eggs and vegetables for breakfast in the garden every morning. Long brunches in the shade under the lemon tree. Renting a small motor boat from Damoulis’ company, and exploring the coastline in our own. Spending lazy days on the Ilingas and sweet water beaches. (Don’t miss the secret beaches around the corner from Ilingas. Dinner at Anopolis half way up the mountains. Evening runs in the surrounding hills, on donkey trails and country roads. Already looking forward to returning!

Sarah June 2019

Hands down the cleanest we ever stayed at! The place was spotless when we arrived and a nice lady came twice during our stay to refresh the house and change towels and sheets. The house itself is great! A brand new kitchen to cook in, super comfortable bed, a nice balcony to enjoy a drink in the evening and an outdoor area in the shade of a lemon tree to relax in the afternoon. We even had access to fresh eggs and veggies from the garden, which was a treat! The owner Damulis is simply put the nicest guy ever: very helpful, warm and generous! This was a 5 stars stay for us!

Pierre May 2019

Exactement comme sur les photos. Situation parfaite pour les amateurs de randonnée. Deux terrasses parfaitement complémentaires. Matelas super. Vraiment exceptionnel!

David May 2019

Excellent lieu pour découvrir un bout de la côte Sud, entre mer et montagnes. Le loft se trouve dans un petit hameau juste au dessus de la station d'Hora Sfakion. La vue est très agréable depuis le séjour et depuis le balcon. L'appartement est très bien équipé, idéal pur un couple. Un super séjour!

Isabelle May 2019

Hébergement très agréable, très propre et très bien équipé dans un endroit préservé où il fait bon vivre. Un grand merci à Damulis et sa famille pour leur accueil ! Nous recommandons fortement cet hébergement.

Adrienne J August 2019

Beautiful. This house is modern and comfortable. It is a lovely, winding walk up the hill from the bay. We watched incredible sunsets from the terrace under the lime tree! The home owner gave us fresh melon, tomatoes and eggs from the garden. The whole experience was dreamy!

Frieder April 2019

Es war ein Vergnügen, mit Alexandra und vor Ort mit Damulis zu tun gehabt zu haben! Damulis ist war sehr freundlich und jederzeit hilfsbereit. Traumhafte Location!! Modernes, sehr gut ausgestattetes Haus mit tollem Balkon, super Blick und traumhafter Terrasse. Schöner geht es nicht. Wir werden wieder kommen!

Carmen October 2018

Wow...was für eine Unterkunft... einfach nur fantastisch. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und es sehr genossen. Das Haus ist sehr stylisch und perfekt hat uns wirklich an nichts gefehlt. Beim Frühstück oder Sonnenuntergang auf der Terrasse unter dem Zitronenbaum ist wirklich ein Traum. Alles in allem sehr empfehlenswert....wir kommen gerne wieder!

Hans Rudolf September 2018

Super schönes Haus sehr viele schöne Details sehr sauber mit einem sehr sympathischen und freundlichen Besitzer !!! Kann man nur weiter empfehlen !!!

Maggie September 2018

Amazing place, even better than the pictures: so clean, super stylish and comfortable.. we’ve had such a lovely relaxing stay in beautiful Sfakia, we really hope to be back. The sea is out of this world - clear and blue and warm. We visited sweetwater by boat, and the beaches in the village were great, but found that the beach at Ilingas was just perfect for us - a 20 min walk where there are some great caves for shade and its a good spot for swimming and snorkelling. Thank you despoina for your kind hospitality, the little touches are sometimes the most important - the wine waiting in the fridge and the bowl of fruit to welcome us, and the kids loved collecting eggs for breakfast and aubergines for dinner. The house is so well equipped, great kitchen and bathroom and everything was spotless, can’t rate this beautiful place highly enough.. We just loved our stay in Crete!!

Dejan June 2018

Super sauber und modern eingerichtetes Ferienobjekt. Damulis und Desbina sind sehr nette und bemühte Eigentümer, Damulis gibt gerne Auskunft über Aktivitäten und besitzt einen Bootsverleih und Tauchtrips bietet er auch noch an. Wir haben (Meine Frau und ich) den Aufenthalt in diesem schönen Studio sehr genossen, Chora Sfakion und Umgebung ist sehr zu empfehlen wenn man gerne wandert und unternehmungslustig ist.Es gibt viele Möglichkeiten zum Essen (sehr gut und Preise sind ok) die Leute sind sehr freundlich, alles super!!! Kommen wieder!!!

Bettina May 2018

Wir haben in Damulis Haus eine sehr schöne Ferienwoche verbracht. Sehr freundlicher Empfang, tolle Lage mit superschönen Blick. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder. Liebe Alexandra, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt in Damulis' Haus. Geschmackvolle Ausstattung, herrliche Lage, traumhafte Aussicht, freundlicher Empfang... alles sehr gut

Charlotte May 2018

The house is absolutely lovely, perfect for a couple. The decor doesn’t disappoint - very stylish and well appointed. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. The area is perfect for hikers and there are also fantastic beaches and restaurants - we hope to be back some time! We loved the house and had a great time - thank you!

Rene August 2017

Unser Aufenthalt in dieser Unterkunft in Chora Sfakion war traumhaft. Das Haus ist super ausgestattet. Alles was man braucht findet man vor Ort (komplett ausgestattete Küche mit Geschirrspüler, sämtlichen Töpfen, Pfannen, Besteck, sogar ein Weber-Grill). Auch das Bad ist für Besucher gut ausgestattet (kleine Duschutensilien, Cremes etc.). Die gesamte Wohnung ist sehr sauber. Das absolute Highlight der Unterkunft ist die Terrasse: Blick aufs Meer, direkt unter einem Limettenbaum (dessen Früchte einfach super schmecken), Tisch mit Stühlen, 3 Liegen. In der Unterkunft lebt man mitten unter den Einheimischen. Hotels bzw. Ferienwohnungen sind weiter weg und wenn dann auch nur sehr klein. Der Gastgeber Damulis passt super zur Unterkunft. Super netter Kerl, der nebenbei auch noch einige Sprachen (Deutsch, Griechisch, Englisch etc.) spricht - man kann sich also auf jeden Fall mit ihm verständigen. Er zeigt einem alles, was man wissen muss. Man kann ihn auch immer anrufen, wenn man Fragen zum Haus oder zur Umgebung hat. Außerdem betreibt er die Tauchschule und den Bootsverleih vor Ort. Er hilft einem auch sehr gerne dabei, Ausflüge oder dergleichen zu organisieren. Wenn gerade etwas reif ist im Gemüsegarten, darf man sich auch etwas von den sehr guten Früchten oder dem guten Gemüse zum Kochen klauen. Alles in allem kann man diese Unterkunft nur empfehlen.

Philip & Catherine August 2017

Notos Well was a wonderful place to stay. Alexandra was truly worthy of her special host status! We loved the stylish interior, the rustic garden, the breathtaking views and the sound of the goat bells on the nearby mountainside. The short walk back from the harbour was just enough to work off some of the delicious food we enjoyed at many of the local tavernas! Visiting Despina's cafe for cake is a must - she bakes through the night to create scrumptious (& extremely generous sized) puddings! Chora Sfakion is an undiscovered gem and we recommend a visit, especially staying in such a beautiful house. A truly positive experience! We had the most perfect stay at Notos Well. We loved the house and its location overlooking the bay. It was a real bonus meeting you Alex - you were so welcoming and such a generous host. Our day swimming through the caves, laughing and eating delicious lamb and home baked bread with you in Marmara (not to mention those amazing WCs!!) was truly unforgettable. Thank you so much for everything you and Damulis did for us- you're a great team!

Dimitra July 2018

We loved our stay in this property which is exactly as described and seen in the photos. Damoulis and Despina were fantastic hosts who gave us access to their veggie garden and fresh farm eggs. This was the perfect base for exploring nearby beaches including our favorite ‘Glyka nera’ and Loutro is also worth a visit. We recommend Imbros gorge an easy 8km hike, Despina’s coffee and Samaria tavern where the chef Christos dishes out delicious food. Be careful where you park in the centre and the port because you can get a parking fine. Alexandra we loved our stay and appreciate the gift of wine and fruit on arrival. Thanks again Dimitra

Giulia August 2018

The house it’s simply gorgeous. The view, the design, the cleaning and the host are great!!! Everything it’s exactly as you can see in the pictures and even more ... Despina and Damulis are great, they help us with everything. We’ll definitely come back again! It has been a pleasure to spend our holidays in Sfakia. Thanks for everything

Nawid November 201

We had a great stay and loved the amazing view from the balcony!

Helena July 2018

We really enjoyed our stay in this gorgeous, beautifully kept house and Chora Sfakion was a great place for a relaxed holiday by the sea. Beaches were not crowded in comparison to some of the other places we stayed and we kayaked to totally empty beaches. Tavernas were great - the freshest fish we ate. The owners of the property were lovely - and made sure we were Ok with everything - they couldn’t have been more helpful. They own the dive centre and if you like diving or want to hire a boat - this is a great place to do this. They even allowed us to take vegetables and eggs from the garden - it was total relaxation and idyllic for us. We hope very much to return.

John October 2017

Wonderful stay at this beautiful little house. Our hosts were terrific and the area beautiful!

Stéphanie August 2017

La maison est parfaite. Conforme en tout point à la description et plus encore: la terrasse, le potager et ses délicieux melons et même les œufs des poules! La location est extrêmement bien entretenue, très propre, très spacieuse, très bien équipée ( cuisine, salle de bain, etc). Linge de maison, savon, shampooing, petit cadeau d'accueil... De la terrasse et de la Maison, vue splendide sur toute la baie de Sfakia, coucher de soleil compris. La maison est située en haut du village, ce qui oblige à une petite grimpette (10m max à pied) depuis La plage et le village, sans difficulté même sous le soleil d'août ! L'accueil par Damulis (propriétaire) est très chaleureux, précis et sérieux. La préparation du sejour avec Alexandra, par mail ou l'appli, très précise et sérieuse aussi. Un conseil: louer un bateau à moteur (sans licence) au Diving Center de Damulis, sur le port, et découvrir les plages inaccessibles par voie de terre, dans la baie de Sfakia. Merci pour votre aide et vos bons conseils. Merci beaucoup aussi à Damulis et aussi à Sofia! Notre séjour fut parfait!

Eske July 2017

Beautiful house in Sfakia. Modern interior and a stunning view. The yard/garden with shadow under the lemontree was excellent. Hora Sfakia is a quite small town with a beautiful harbour and nice restaurants. Alexandra and Damulis arranged a sailing trip to the Marmara Beach - we had a very lovely lunch there, and the sea has the most beautiful turquoise colour.

Tak for leje af dit hus i Sfakia. Vi har haft en dejlig uge, og vi vil huske tilbage på udflugten til Marmaras smukke strand. Tak for din søde og gæstfrie måde at være på. Damulis var også sød, rar og hjælpsom. Mange hilsner fra os alle fem.

Roxy September 2017

Wow! What a beautiful pocket of Crete. Alexandra, Damilus and all down at the diving centre were so welcoming and hospitable. Nothing was too much trouble. The apartment is incredible, we loved waking up to views of the ocean and sunset drinks in the garden. I'd highly recommend renting a little boat from the diving centre and hiking down Aradena Gorge to Marmara Beach where you will enjoy the most delicious lunch overlooking what was easily our favourite beach! Thanks for the recommendations Alexandra! The village quickly felt like home which made leaving a all the more difficult. Get in quick and book this little gem, we've recommended it to all our family and friends so it's bound to be booked out soon!

Michael September 2017

We searched extensively, in a number of towns, for the right place to stay on Crete’s southern coast and were thrilled when we came across Notos Well on AirBnB. And more thrilled when we saw it in person. Attractively set in a quiet residential spot above the harbor, but a short walk down to it, the home is extremely well-appointed and tastefully decorated with all the modern touches one might want. The mezzanine deck and especially the garden are amazing spots to bliss out on the gorgeous, expansive view and on your good fortune for being in southern Crete. We found Sfakia to be a charming town and a smart place to base from with terrific hiking, gorgeous beaches and interesting sites easily accessible. And the people who live and work in the area were incredibly warm and welcoming. Alexandra was out of the country during our stay but was totally on-point with all communication and in her instructions to meet Damulis, who owns the home, when we arrived. Speaking of Damulis , he is such a great guy and epitomizes Cretan hospitality. Thank you Damulis and Alexandra. We hope to be back soon.

Emily September 2017

This little converted stone house in Chora Sfakion is impeccably decorated, immaculate, appointed with everything you might need (pots/pans, electric kettle, juicer, little toiletries) as well as all the add-ons you that make a stay extra special (candles, comfortable and well-decorated indoor/outdoor space, air conditioning, beautiful coffee table books about Crete, wine, fresh mountain greens, melons, lemons, eggs available from the garden!) Damulis, the host, is a laid back guy with great energy (he felt akin to some of our friends in Southern California!) One morning I awoke to the sound of so many bells and headed out to see what the clatter was - so many goats just meandering by! It was an ethereal experience! During our stay we rented a boat from Notos Mare and had a wonderful experience working with Sofia. We headed to the beaches only accessible by boat (Ag. Roumeli, Glyka Nera, Marmara) and had delicious Octopus by the sea at the tavern in Marmara. We hiked Aradena Gorge from top to bottom which was an easy downhill hike that took us about 3hrs - gorgeous and quiet! Overall our experience in Chora Sfakion was beautiful - our only gripe is that we didn't stay longer! Our stay was absolutely wonderful - the best end to an stunning honeymoon. Chora Sfakion is a special place and I absolutely loved the accommodation. Thank you Alexandra and Damulis for everything!

Valentina, Giovanni, Gaia e Gualtiero August 2017

The 28th of August we left Chora Sfakion with a lot of sadness. We've spent such a beautiful holidays we are going to remember for a long time! The house is really beautiful, airy, full of light and big openspace, well furnished, simply lovely. The housekeeping is very professional. Sheets and towels are new, fresh and proper. Perfect air conditioning, washing machine, dishwasher, kettle, oven, microwave... nothing missing! We loved the beautiful terrace, where we were used to eat, take the sun and read under the old lemon tree; we loved particularly the backyards, too, with hens that I love and with fresh vegetables to be picked and cooked in the perfectly equipped kitchen. The wifi satisfied our 2 adolescents. It seems to be in a 5 stars hotel! Don't loose to have a boat trip with Damulis: a beautiful gentleman, the Poseidon of Chora Skakion! Sofia, the delicious "Octopus" of Notos Mare Marine Adventures at the port, will organize everything with him. With Damulis we visited Gavdos island and there we left our heart. Thank you Alexandra! It seems to be in a 5 stars hotel! Thank you very much for everything, and see you again, in Chora Sfakion or maybe in Bergamo! Un grande abbraccio da Valentina, Giovanni, Gaia e Gualtiero.
