Why LOUKIA SIVAROPOULOU chose Rethymnon area

Set in the beautiful Sfakaki area, in Rethymnon, Crete, Greece, villa Lucia is one of the most luxurious villas on the island.

We choose to build our villa at Sfakaki Settlement because we found there our dreams piece of land , in the nature and near the beach .

Our villa is built in a very special piece of land . The energy that exists on this point is unique. Without being away from residential area (the closest house is 200 meters from the villa) is integrated into the natural surroundings. It is built on a plot of 5000 square meters with olive trees and mainly located around the other groves. The serenity that prevails is unique, the smell on air from the natural environment, the tweet of birds, the sound of waves (the beach is 700 meters) makes staying in a unique experience.

What makes this villa unique

Staying in villa Lucia you will have some benefits that only a few villas can offer around Crete!

The villa was carefully planned blending neatly into the natural Cretan environment, while covering the modern life-style, offering an astonishing view to the Aegean sea.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so lucky to find this beautiful, private house for our family vacation on Crete. The private garden, the quiet countryside, and the gorgeous interior, all a few minutes from the beach and a short drive to Rethymnon. There was more than enough room for our group of 10. Loukia and Niko met us at 1:00 am on our arrival, ordered us food, and were a great resource for us. We also found fresh produce from the garden most mornings! This is by far the nicest vacation rental we have ever taken. Fantastic!!

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(18 traveller reviews)


Beautifully appointed villa, spacious inside and out. Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We are a party of 10 just returned from 2 weeks at Villa Lucia. The villa was far larger than we had anticipated from the photos and was more than big enough for us all. It is extremely well appointed with everything we needed. The gardens were exceptional and well maintained. The villa was cleaned and fresh bedding and towels every 3 days. The large pool was excellent, had easy access for our 6 year old via the steps at the shallow end but was deep enough to be enjoyed by all the family.

The location was perfect, we didn't hire a car as shops, beach, tavernas and bus stops are all just a leisurely 10 minute walk away. This provides the best of both worlds as the villa is secluded at the edge of the village, so no worries about our young children and teenagers disturbing the neighbours.

The local buses are frequent and only 20 mins to Rethimno.

Loukia was extremely welcoming and responded quickly to any questions we had.

Our whole party had a fantastic holiday and we would love to return in the future.

Villa Lucia is icing on the cake!

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of 9 Norwegian persons in total, found Villa Lucia on the internet, booked it from 3/10-15 until 10/10-15 and were quite excited on our arrival if the fantastic reviews on this villa really were true…

Indeed they were! Indeed they are!

We all had a wonderful week in this luxurious villa, celebrating a 50th birthday as a highlight during our stay. Thanks to the property owner Loukia, who organised a special surprise for the jubilant with a cake and local musicians to play for us, we had the most memorable day. We can just recommend this place to groups who are looking for a more unique experience during their stay in Crete, away from the hustle and bustle of hotels. This location of the place made us feel that we were further away from the touristy atmosphere, and offered a tranquility that was invaluable to us. We definitely would like to come back to visit again.

Incredible Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Lucia for 3 weeks and we don't regret it. The villa is very confortable, quiet and clean. We were 10 adults and 1baby. The garden is very nice. The owner Loukia and Nikos are very friendly and take care of us every days. Sfakaki is very closed from Rethymnon. We will not forget the very warm welcome.

Wondeful days in Sfakaki.

  • 5 of 5

The villa Lucia in Sfakaki was a perfect place for our family. We are 9 adults and 2 children ( 8 and 10 years old), we come from Norway and we stayed in the villa for one week. The place was clean and well-mantained, quiet and peaceful. The standard in the house was very good and Loukia and Nicolas was very friendly an helped us with the things we needed. Loukia helped us finding a car rental office, and she helped us with shopping food the first night. We had wonderful evenings, sunny days, quiet nights and lot of fun in the pool and in the garden.

We would recommend this property to our friends if they want a quiet place to live in the holiday.

The servic in the local restaurant was very good.

The best villa we've stayed at...

  • 5 of 5

I never normally write reviews even though I use this website every year to book a villa holiday. But we just had such a wonderful week chez Loukia I had to write my first review! We were a party of 9 and there was so much space for all of us. The bedrooms are very well presented with made up cots for babies already set up. The villa is a short walk from supermarkets and there's a couple of restaurants within walking distance where we spent a hilarious evening eating and dancing to Cretan music. We also took, a spin out about 15 minutes away is a cute town with a harbour and beach with plenty of shops and restaurants. However we mostly stayed at the villa because it has such a lovely terrace with a beautiful view of the pool and the sea. Loukia is a wonderful warm and welcoming host and she replies to emails and requests very speedily. We were presented with a lovely fruit basket and some delicious local olive oil on our arrival. There was also a mid week clean where a lovely lady came in and properly cleaned the villa - I have been to other villas who advertise this service however they normally only change bedsheets and towels. I feel the description of the villa and services comes across as too modest because both were exceptional! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a villa to book this one! The first time that we have said ... we will be back!! Thank you Loukia ;)
