Notos Well Studio-House
Nydelig, lite studio-house i Sfakia på Kretas vakre sørkyst.
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”.
Huset med fantastisk sjøutsikt er på 84 m2 pluss balkong og hage. Det er gangavstand til stranden i landsbyen, og butikker og restauranter. I første etasje inneholder boligen kjøkken, bad med dusj, og garderoberom. Hagen er på andre siden av den lille gaten, like vis-à-vis inngangsdøren til huset. I annen etasje er det en romslig stue med sovesofa til 3, og hems med dobbeltseng.
Totalt er det 5 sengeplasser.
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.

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

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!
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!!!
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
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!

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!
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
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
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.
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!
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. Kære Alexandra. 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.
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!

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.
