Extra Services

Dinner at the Old Wine Cellar

Below the house there is an old cellar with aged wines still preserved by the family! The visitors can only have access there in consultation with the owners!
In this space there is also the opportunity of a dinner or lunch to be organized! I love cooking and I will be happy to transmit to you my love for Cretan cuisine! Enjoy a meal with authentic pure ingredients from Cretan land and recipes that are well preserved from generation to generation in a cellar full of history and "memories"!
The price is 50€ / person and you also have the opportunity to open and taste an aged wine bottle from the cellar!

Visit to our family Winery "Tamiolaki"

The Estate of Tamiolakis is located in Houdetsi, 25 kilometers south of the city of Heraklion! The philosophy of the estate is to showcase the Cretan vineyard using primarily local grape varieties. For this reason the vineyard has taken on a somewhat ‘experimental’ character and consequently many local Cretan varieties were planted in a total area of 5 hectares. For some of these varieties such as Vidiano and Moschato Spinas that were close to extinction, this vineyard has assisted tremendously in their revival and in their promotion!

If wished, a visit to the winery of the family can be organized for free by me!
Also the full wine tasting experience is given to the guests of Villa Memories with a discounted price of 7€ per person instead 10€ per person!
We will be happy to share with our love for Cretan wine making process!

Evangelina welcomed us with nice homemade jams. She is very proud of her antiques. She is very friendly. The outdoor patio is lovely. We found a few things we would love to see improved. The house was extremely hot when we arrived. We could only boil eggs as there was only one scratched teflon pot to cook with. The double bed was so hard I left with a back ache today after 3 nights. This is very rare for me as I don't have a bad back. The people in the village scowled at us as we left today. We didn't feel very welcomed.

Our visit to Villa Memories was just what we needed after being in (URL HIDDEN) was relaxing and immersed our family in simple Houdesti country living. We felt privileged to have stayed in Evangelia's beautiful family home, so much history. The home is just as the pictures show. Evangelia's hospitality went well beyond what we were used to. Upon arrival she brought us lemonade and fruit. She made herself available to us the entire trip and even gave us a little tour of the village to get our bearings. We enjoyed walking through the narrow streets, meeting the local residence and eating at the little restaurants in the center of the village. My husband took a walk one afternoon and was gone a long time. Upon arriving home he said he sat with a group of men and shared a drink. The crowning glory of our stay was most definitely Evangelia's home cooked dinner and winery tour. The tour and wine tasting at her family winery, less than a mile from the house, was one of the most enjoyable, informative, and relaxing that I can remember. We chose to have Evangelia cook for us on our last night and chose to dine in the old wine cellar in the house. A beautiful space with amazing character! She cooked her family Cretan recipes, being sensitive to our dietary preferences. We were well fed! Our advice to future guests would be... Bring cash, there are no ATMs in Houdesti and most would like to be paid/only accept cash. The grocery store accepts Credit Cards. We did not rent a car and found we regretted it. Although the roads are extremely narrow it is very hard to do excursions by taxi. If we were fortunate to return to Crete we would stay at Villa Memories again!

Eva was extremely warm, friendly, and helpful. There was a small amount of confusion about the wifi password and she worked that out very quickly. This is a great way to experience the best of Cretan village life. The garden was fantastic. A neighbor brought us fresh-baked pastries!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Evangelia's house! Houdetsi is a beautiful quiet village but with easy access to all main roads! Evangelia was very helpful and also an excellent cooker as we bought a dinner at the private cellar she keeps down the house and she only made Cretan traditional receipes! That was awesome! Also do not miss visiting her children's winery which is very close to the house - she gave us discount at tasting wines and gifted us a brilliant wine bottle! The house is lovely and the village friendly! We very much hope to go again there for more days - maybe in the festival on August!

Lovely host, incredible area and village, gorgeous home! My husband and I spent a wonderful time here with Evangelia's amazing hospitality! She is a fantastic communicator and welcomed us with some homemade jams for our breakfast and was always available for tips on what to see and where to eat! The house is only 25minute drive from the coast and also ideal for starting trips south at all these magical places! More than enough cooking facilities and overall charming old Cretan house - full of memories as Evangelia was explaining all the time! We would stay here again for sure!!

This place seems like a little paradise! An old, restored stone house in the middle of a charming little village! It has a terrace full of green and a great wooden outdoors table to dinner with your company! Evangelia welcomed us very nicely with cretan honey and fruits and was always available for any request! Nearby the house you will find beautiful tavernas with lovely food and old cafes called "kafeneia" in Crete! Also the village people we found were very welcoming! It is good that you have a car during your stay here as the place is so so good to organize several tours around both north an south side of Crete! Thank you Evangelia for the great hospitality!
