The Rethymnon Prefecture region
Agios Ioannis is a small traditional village built at the slope of the hill "Katalimata" 500m above the sea level, 18 kms away from Ierapetra. The village is located in South East Crete in a magic landscape with an open view to the Libyan Sea.
When you are on your way to the village you enjoy an unlimited view of the settlement. The picture is impressive.
The former inhabitants of Agios Ioannis have been moved to the inshore area between Makri Gialos and Koutsouras, where the touristic development and the agricultural development (greenhouses) help their easier and better living.
There are only a few remaining inhabitants and a lot of houses are desolated, but fortunately a lot of houses are renovated (mostly as holidayhouse) and the village is becoming a very special place to stay!
The taverna on the square is a lovely place to sit down to have a traditional Greek meal and a drink while you enjoy the fantastic view.

Overall the house was nice, clean and had the amenities that we needed. However I think we were the first tenants of the season and the smell of must and mold was horrendous. This made for a not so ap… More
Dear family Nelson,
Thank you for your review.
I'm sorry for any inconvience you had during your stay, but I find it also unfortunate that you have not mentioned your experience to us before.
If I'm correct I provided you before the booking the details of our private website to read more about the house, the village and the surrounding.
In the information of holidaylettings there is also information about the accessibility: the house is not suitable for people with restricted mobility.
Kindest regards, Bettina Coupe.
