Activities Horse Riding Stay & Bike Stay & Harvest


At the rural and calm village of Xirokambi, 3 km from the seaside, a beautiful, ancient house, reflecting the colors and the air of Crete, is waiting for you. Family Sarris will welcome you warmly and will tell you all about their traditions. Here, you will enjoy some pure moments of pleasure, in Cretan style.

Built in two levels, this traditional family house has been recently renovated, with respect to the local architecture, and is surrounded by a verdurous garden smelling nicely the flowers’ and aromatic herbs aromas.
There is a staircase taking you to the house’s main entrance. At this level, you will find a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room, a living room, two double rooms with bathroom, a mezzanine with a double bed and a nice, furnished balcony. There is an interior staircase which gives access to the ground floor where you may find a double room with bathroom and a furnished courtyard, with an independent entrance and access to the garden.

Relax and share some unique moments under the large pergola offering its shadow thanks to the wonderful vine, full of grapes. 
and a small swimming pool with chaise-longs, sun umbrellas and a shower. The place is shadowy thanks to the big mulberry.

Tassos and Maro are there to offer you all the necessary to prepare your breakfast for the first day, as there is no market nearby the guest house.

Elise C. / Italy / August, 2012
Pour la troisième fois j'ai passè mes vacances, avec ma famille, à villa Sarri. La maison est vraiment de charme, grande et confortable. A mon avis les plages les plus belles de Crete sont dans l'ouest et ainsi villa Sarri est vraiment bien située. En plus les proprietaires sont vraiment gentilles et sympas. Maro et Tassos sont des amis qui cherchent de rendre super la vacance. Nous avons déjà nostalgie de villa Sarri. Nous reviendrons.

Isabelle B. / France / July, 2011
Nous avons séjourné en famille à Xirokambi (Xenonas Sarri) et avons été extrêmement content de ce séjour: La maison est très bien située, très confortable et très bien agencée.  Elle a de plus beaucoup de charme et une vraie atmosphère. La maison et les espaces autour sont très soignés, et tout était impeccablement propre. L'accueil a été très chaleureux, très attentif sans être envahissant: Tassos et Maro Sarri  ont un vrai sens de l'hospitalité. - Nous avons beaucoup apprécié également les échanges que nous avons eu avec eux, et qui nous ont permis de découvrir un peu mieux leur vie d'agriculteurs. Bref, ce séjour a parfaitement répondu à nos espérances et nous repasserons par les services de Guest Inn lors de prochains séjours.

Famille Dominique B / France / August, 2007
Nous avons été ravis, et souvent impressionnés par la qualité des logements que nous avons successivement occupés, ainsi que par la gentillesse et l'hospitalité des propriétaires ou du personnel d'accueil. Nous souhaitons donner une mention toute particulière donnée à Xenonas Sarri. Cette maison de village est vraiment exceptionnelle. La disposition générale et l'authenticité du lieu, la décoration d'une très grande qualité nous ont vraiment subjugués. Par ailleurs, et avant tout, Tasos et Maros ont été des hôtes formidables. Un grand moment !
