Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

This Villa was an absolute dream of a place.

gorgeous style and beautiful decor.

the villa was very clean, and had all the amenities available.

it was spacious, luxurious and had a great heated pool along with a brilliant BBQ area which for me being a South African was the best feature!!

they have a brilliant and professional masseuse who comes to the villa on request and we had the best back massage ever! she brought along a variety of essential Oil blends for sale for all types of problems for which i bought one for my back as i suffer from lower back pain and it did wonders!

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great relaxing holiday.

I thank the owners Michael and Irine for being wonderful hosts.

Villa de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Cette année nous avons choisi la Crète pour nos vacances. Nous avons décidé de rester à la Villa Irida, parce qu'elle était assez grande pour toute la famille (mon mari, mes parents, mes deux petits enfants et moi). Nous avons trouvé cette location à très bon prix.

Elle n'était pas loin non plus du village principal d’ Hersonissos.La villa Irida se trouve au coeur de la montagne crétoise à côté du joli village traditionnel de Koutouloufari.

Quand nous sommes arrivés nous avons eu un accueil très chaleureux par les propriétaires Michael et Irini qui nous ont dit de les contacter pour tout ce dont nous pourrions avoir besoin.

Nous avons eu la véritable surprise de voir que la villa était encore plus belle et plus grande que sur les photos. Nous avons trouvé un barbecue dans le jardin privé ce qui a ravit mon mari grand amateur de barbecue !

Le Villa étais très propre et avec toutes les commodités.

Tous les soirs, pendant que mon mari nous faisait un délicieux BBQ, mes parents appréciaient la piscine chauffée (ma mère ayant de l'arthrite). Les enfants s'amusaient aussi à jouer sur la pelouse de la villa

Pendant la journée nous avons visité les endroits qu’Irini, notre guide improvisée, nous a recommandés.

La villa a également un catalogue avec différents massages et soins du visage que nous avons testés au bord de la piscine. Ces massages ont été faits par un thérapeute qualifié et très sympa, parlant français ! Il nous a donné un vaste choix d'huiles essentielles. Quel bonheur pour les vacances !

Malheureusement, le 3ième jour, ma mère se sentait un peu malade à cause du soleil et nous avons appelé Irini pour nous indiquer le centre médical. Vraiment, je ne peux pas y croire : elle nous a amené chez le médecin.

Quelle hospitalité crétoise !

Nous avons eu nos meilleures vacances grâce à Irini et Michael !

Vraiment une adresse à recommander sans hésitation !

We will be back...😊.

Отличный отпуск на средиземном море!!!

  • 5 of 5

Мы отдыхали на Крите в мае 2016 года . Наш выбор пал на Ириду виллу так как были все удобства для отдыха с ребёнком и что ещё не мало важно это наличие услуги подогрева бассейна .

Забронировав эту виллу мы связались с владельцем Михалисом и были приятно уделены так как его супруга Ирина говорит на русском языке. С этого момента Ирина сделала наш отпуск максимально комфортным. Нас встретил трансфер в аэропорту, который она же организовала , предоставила нам все необходимое для нашего 10-ти месячного ребёнка , даже написала списки магазинов где покупать продукты питания для нашего малыша. Любая наша просьба выполнялась в кратчайшие сроки. Мы очень благодарны за столь теплый приём и мгновенную реакцию на все наши просьбы это была колоссальная помощь, а особенно учитывая то, что Ирине нужно было заботиться о своём 3-х месячном малыше.

Что касается виллы то можем сказать, что дом ещё лучше чем на фото. Он намного больше и очень чистый, что для нас было важно. Так же владельцы построили огромную обеденную зону с барбекю, где мы проводили все наши вечера, это был для нас так же приятный сюрприз так как на момент нашего бронирования у них не было фото с барбекю зоной.

Мы наслаждались тишиной и покоем находясь на вилле , это был просто Рай после шумного города.

Мы обязательно вернёмся в это место ещё раз как только запланируем наш отпуск в Грецию.

Eine Woche im Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Wir reisen gerne und sind schon viel rum gekommen, wichtig war uns ein Haus in dem man gerne wohnt und ungestört sich erholen kann, Vorliebe mit privatem Pool und genau das haben wir mit der Villa gefunden. Man kann sagen, es war eine Woche im Paradies. Es fehlte an gar nichts. Die Einrichtung ist so schön dass ich am liebsten dort bleiben wollte. Super! Empfangen wurden wir ganz herzlich, typisch griechisch eben. Die Inhaber dieser Villa gaben uns sofort ein Gefühl von Geborgenheit und Wohl sein. Der Inhaber Mihalis (bzw. dessen Ehefrau Irini) hat uns stets herzlich unterstützt und war immer erreichbar, wenn wir eine Frage hatten. Der nächste Urlaub ist gebucht, wir sind stolz diese Familie kennen gelernt zu haben. Es stimmte einfach Alles, die Besitzer haben sich rührend um uns gekümmert. Wir sind dankbar für die tolle Zeit, bis nächstes Jahr.

Our absolutely perfect Greek holidays!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Irida villa in July 2016. It was really fantastic holidays special for my kids. The villa is very clean, comfortable and luxurious looked really even better than in photos. Villa located close to nice traditional village Kutulufari with a good restourants, small shops and friendly people. We completely fell in love with this place.

Also I would like to thank owner Mihalis and Irini. They was really the best hosts. They are very friendly and helpfull of any of our wishes. Even at night when my child was sick they found for us doctor and bring him in the villa.

This holidays we will keep in our hearts for many years. And the first place where we would be back will be this villa.

Five Star, superb

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful villa for two weeks over the Easter holidays. The photos do not do it justice, it is very beautifully finished ,lovely view , the pool was heated which was essential at this time of year. The owner was 100 % attentive even though he had his first baby during our stay, nothing was too much trouble. We very rarely travel to the same place twice but we are strongly thinking of coming back. The town was only just beginning to wake from the winter but that suited us and we loved the three villages that are on the hillside as your turn left out of the drive. Thanks Mikalis, we have fallen in love with your house.
