Absolutely stunning villas!

  • 5 of 5

The villas and the grounds are incredible every amenity is catered for and Maria and Manos and Elena the owner are wonderful to deal with. The organised for us breakfast at the villa as well as a bazuki player for BBQ Greek night! I definitely recommend these villas (there are two villas identical next to each other) so that worked out amazingly for our large group of 26 people! Thanks again!

Beautiful gardens great service

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week staying in this villa. Maria and her husband made us feel so welcome and sorted out any issue we had very efficiently and with a smile. The view from both villas is spectacular and we particularly enjoyed doing barbeques by the pool in the evenings. Would highly recommend holidaying here.

Beautiful villa in a superb location.

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a two week holiday at the villa. It is beautiful villa in a superb location overlooking the med and Rethymnon. The outside space is superb with a luxurious swimming pool, spacious patio and barbecue area. Lena greeted us on arrival and looked after us during our stay. We were made very welcome throughout our visit. We used the catering service on a couple of occasions and would recommend it to future visitors. Rethymnon is approx 10 mins away in a car and the journey in a taxi costs approx 7 euro but less if they actually use the meter! We enjoyed the water sports on the beach but made good use of our pool area. Highly recommended is the Avli restaurant especially the garden courtyard which is probably the nicest setting for a meal we have ever encountered. Rethymnon itself is a great mix of traditional narrow cobbled streets and cosmopolitan bars, basically something to suit all tastes. In summary we would highly recommend the villa and the resort and will be coming back in the not too distant future.

EXCEEDED ALL OUR EXPECTATIONS!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in this wonderful villa. A large group of family and friends from Ireland and the USA (aged between 10 and 55) spent an unforgettable 10 days in this amazing villa. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the manager of the villa Maria who had a glass of wine waiting for us. Maria wanted to make sure we were comfortable and showed us around the large luxurious villa. We were in awe of this beautiful place both inside and out. We had a wonderful view of the sea and and the sun set was speculator. Every second day the cleaners (who were extremely friendly and even baked us a delicious cake) cleaned and kept the villa immaculate. The whole outside which included the pool was maintained to a very high standard. Maria proved to be indispensable to us. She arrived every day with a smile to make sure everything was fine and was available to answer any queries we had. These included recommendations on site seeing, restaurants and activities which she personally even booked for us. We had a bit of an emergency (a very bad case of sunburn) - all we had to do was to call Maria and she arranged for us to visit a doctor which solved the problem. With Maria and her team we always felt safe, secure and totally taken care of at all times. Crete is a beautiful island and has an noncommercial feel to it. One of the highlights of our trip was a visit to another island called Santorini. We were able to take a fast boat to this island for a day. It is certainly well worth a visit. The younger members of our group loved spending time on the sandy warm beaches swimming, playing volleyball and doing other activities. We would highly recommend Crete and certainly this villa as a holiday destination. Thank you so much Maria and of course your staff for a wonderful unforgettable holiday. We would love to return some day!!

Great Villa - Great Service - Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The whole process from booking the villa to arrival was really good, Nikos is very pro active and helped greatly with the transport to the villa.

The villa itself was much nicer than in the pictures, which i didnt think was possible. When we arrived (at 12.30am local time) Maria was waiting for us to run through everything which was great.

The pool area was great for all the family and there were plenty of things for the kids. The BBQ area was nice and was used a few times.

We had a group of 9 adults and 2 children and we had two spare bedrooms for storing things and plenty of space for everyone. As there are two living rooms and kitchens, we had a that bit of privacy as well if needed.

Thanks for a great holiday and im sure we will be back!

Great!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was absolutely great. It looks exactly like in the picture and description. The villa, garden and pool where excellent maintaint and cleaned.

We recieved advice from manos and Maria about car hire. Because we arrived late in the evening the Guy from the carhire escorted us from the AirPort to the villa. Maria made dinner for us on the night of arrival, so we could eat immediatly after arrival. Our holiday was great and very relaxing. The only minor thing is that it is just to far from the citycenter to walk. So you need a rental car and / or taxi's to go out and go for groceries.
