Barbara Switzerland. "After 43 years of travelling all over the world, of meeting thousands of wonderful people, I have found the perfect place to relax and enjoy a precious holiday: the Magical Hidden Cretan Retreat in Monopari."


Hidden high above the beautiful city of Rethymnon, on a road seldom traveled you will find the sleepy village of Monopari. Here time stands still while the handful of shepherds move their flocks from pasture to pasture. Ancient oaks stand shoulder to shoulder with olive laden trees. Eagles, buzzards and vultures hang high in the sky riding the warn up drafts. Here you will find our Paradise hide-away in the shadow of an 11th Century Pirate castle once occupied by the Duke of Malta.

Situated only 12km from Rethymnon's beach's and historic town you can spend your days discovering the narrow streets and beautiful Froteza. Travel the 20 km south through dramatic gorges and you fall straight into the Libian sea.

We are ideally situated for birdwatchers, walkers and cyclists or those of you how just wants peace and quiet all will be made more than welcome. Here time moves slowly and the hustle an bustle of everyday life is soon forgotten to the harmonic chorus of the Cretan countryside.

Become part of our peaceful household for a while and enjoy the unspoiled atmosphere of our old stone house. Browse through our books and lose the days in a world of your own making.

We offer a clean and comfortable room with views of the castle and your own private bath room.

To ice the cake we have a generous size swimming pool for you to cool of in after a long days relaxation, or sit in the courtyard under the shade of the hanging vines. Prepare to be welcomed by our friendly dogs and lovable cats who will all help you relax and enjoy your stay. If you fancy a night out perhaps you'd like to join our host, who sings in the local towns and entertains the many tourists and locals during the year. Who knows you might even end up in one of the hosts novels or children's story's. We are a working household and spend almost every week selling our wares at craft fairs and local produce markets with a range of our fresh made bread, pies salads or sample our home made wine and other delights.
We can offer you a fresh simple breakfast (at a small extra cost) and depending on singing commitments maybe an evening meal. Most of our vegetables are from our own garden or are sourced locally.

This is for the more discerning traveler not wanting the package style of holiday but you will leave relaxed and refreshed.

You can now hire ladies and gents bikes to explore the surrounding countryside for a small fee.

Crete is an island with an exquisite 1,000 kilometer-long coastline dotted with numerous coves, bays and peninsulas, which afford a multitude of soft, sandy beaches along the beautifully blue Mediterranean Sea. After all, it's among the finest in the world and has established Crete as one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations. And, of course, the island's historic importance in today's world as the home of the Minoan civilization with important archaeological finds at Knossos, Phaistos and Gortys, is evidenced by the tens of thousands of visitors to these sites each year.

However, Crete is the largest island in Greece - the fifth largest in the Mediterranean - and, within its diverse area of more than 8,000 square kilometers, there are many other jewels just waiting to be discovered by the more adventurous explorers of holiday treasures.

If you haven’t visited Crete yet, this summer may be the time to come and discover this fascinating Greek island. If it captures your heart, don’t worry. Come back next year and Crete will welcome you once more with its smiling Cretan sun, the sounds of the Cretan lyre, the scents of orange blossom and jasmine, a slice of cool red watermelon and a glass of iced raki.

We highly recommend if you wish to come and stay with us you hire a car as the bus time table is limited and runs twice a day early AM and afternoon. This will also give you more freedom to explore our beautiful surroundings with the south coast only 30 mins drive you can access the smaller beaches there in no time at all.

David and Clare hope to see you soon.

We spent a lovely week in this nice house up in Monopari. Everything was perfect, the room nice, clean and tidy, the balcony a jewel with a stunning view, the Pool and garden area a jem! And dont miss the breakfast, with lots of local food and owngrown delicacies from the garden. Rethymno is a short drive away. But most importantly, our hosts were such nice and lovely persons, they did everything they could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. And they had good tipps for adventures and good restaurants in the area. And the dogs are very friendly, it was never a problem, even with our baby-boy. Strongly recommend to pay them a visit.

I don't know where to start, to describe the wonderful holiday I have spent with David and Clare. The setting is stupendous, majestic and restful at the same time: perfect calm with a background tinkling of sheeps' bells. The room (plus private bathroom and terrace) they offer is very comfortable, providing privacy if one wants it, but company is never far away. Breakfast is an absolute feast, served on a shady terrace with breathtaking views. David and Clare are a wonderful caring couple, and are endlessly knowledgeable about Crete. So whether one sets out on the adventures they suggest, or spend lazy days by the pool, one cannot fail to have a happy and fulfilling holiday. I cannot recommend their place highly enough and urge others to sample this warm couple's magnificent hospitality!

Wir waren sehr gespannt auf das Abenteuer und unsere Erwartungen wurden weit übertroffen. Clare und David sind wunderbare Gastgeber und so hatten wir 2 Wochen der vollen Verwöhnung. Jeder Tag begann mit einem wunderbaren Frühstück, guter Musik und herzlichem Lachen. So haben wir nicht nur unsere Gastgeber sondern auch ihre Vierbeiner ins Herz geschlossen. Die Unterkunft ist wie beschrieben, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Der Balkon lädt am Abend zum Sitzen ein und auch den Swimmingpool haben wir rege genutzt. Monopari ist ein kleines Dorf, geprägt vor Allem von Schafzucht. Man ist direkt in der Natur. So konnten wir sogar Geier bei ihrem Flug beobachten. Und doch ist es sehr zentral. Man kann einen grossen Teil der Insel erkunden, die Strände im Süden erreichen aber auch in Hania oder Rethimno schoppen gehen. Es lohnt sich ein wenig länger zu bleiben.

We came to David and Clare's home and were welcomed in with nothing but kindness. The house is located in a very small, picturesque town of Monopari, about a 20 minute drive from the main city of Rethymno, and 90 mins from Heraklion airport. The room is lovely with its own private ensuite and balcony, there is a pool, and the views are spectacular! We planned on seeing a few places around Crete, but ended up not wanting to leave their lovely home as we were too busy relaxing by the pool and enjoying the atmosphere. We also enjoyed all of the friendly pets, and appreciated all of the wonderful things David and Clare do helping animals in the area. David and Clare themselves are very wonderful and treat you as old friends. I highly recommend you take advantage of their delicious breakfast. We were even able to see them perform in Chania one night, which was a treat. We plan on visiting many times in the future, thanks very much for having us.

David and Clare are two of the most inspiring and open minded persons we`ve ever met during our travels. They made as feel at home from the first second we arrived. Every time we returned from the lovely local tavern, their heartwarming pack welcomed us with wagging tails. We highly recommend to visit David and Clare in beautiful and peaceful Monopari!

Easy going and hard working. Clare and I have traveled a lot and between the two of us can muddle through a little Greek, French and German. I am constantly busy either singing, being an movie extra, writing a new book, or working on our house to show its full potential. Clare is the heart of the house and nothing works without her she puts me to shame and I am always amazed how much work she gets through during the day.

We both work very hard and love entertaining, between our home made wine and highly sought after pies and bread, we can offer you the warmest of welcomes and the most relaxing stay away from the the rest of the frantic world.
