  • The place is amazing! On one of the sites on Crete for tourists not correctly identifies the location of the monastery than deceived. But we found! Came in the evening around 6. People in the monastery was not. The first thing that shocked this is a view of the surrounding countryside. Beauty unusual! The monastery itself is very small and cozy. Having met on the territory of the nun. Shock # 2! .... She invited us to the temple! Opened it and let us inside. Very shocked her attitude! Told about the monastery and miraculous icon of Saint Irene. After conducted bench and showed us the results of the labor of nuns. The monastery is famous for its hand-painted icons, weaving and embroidery. Visit! You will not regret!

  • Better and not come up with the hotel for a romantic trip. Insanely gorgeous views over the village and if you look closely you can see in Heraklion. Very quiet and cozy place. By car you can easily reach the hotel from Heraklion for 20 minutes (of course if you understand the signs of the Greek): the hotel is equipped with all necessary. Very prichtno rest. Kitchen corner for us fans to drink coffee or tea, became an irreplaceable thing. Very nice owners. Cute Greek family, they are preparing breakfast and dinner. Holiday in this hotel was unforgettable. PS for the insane beauty of sunrises here!

  • A wonderful and peaceful small monastery. A very kind sister led us through the area and told us about the history of this holy place. The little shop has a great variation of handmade and handcrafted goods. An absolute recommendation for a short visit.
  • Very quite and beautiful monastery
  • A beautiful and traditional monastery with women nuns! Has great view to Rethymno and interior parking for guests, completely free of charge, of course. The nuns caring for the monastery and with the above and is in perfect condition! Generally worth the trouble to visit!

  • Great place. Very nice, beautiful monastery, very friendly and good nuns. The goods that they produce and sell, very high quality, much better than those that sell in stalls.
