About Audrey Thomassen

Eighteen years ago my husband and I came to Crete for the first time on a holiday. It was love at the first sight and it didn't take too long when we decided to buy a piece of land and built our holiday home. After having enjoyed our own ‘home away’ for a few years and getting to know the local people and the surroundings a little better, we decided to construct a few villas for rent for luxurious holidays. We were convinced that Sisi and its surroundings are ideal for holiday makers that value tranquillity, privacy and comfort. In the meantime other villa owners joined Luxury villas on Crete and started renting their villas through us. Together we make sure that our guests are being taken care in the highest standards and that they spend here on the beautiful island of Crete their unforgettable holiday in lavish, comfortable and luxurious surroundings.

Audrey Thomassen purchased this villa in 2008

The villa is located a unique surrounding , away from the tourism's rush but still very close to amenities , just 10 minutes walking distance from the sea, beach,tavernas, restaurants, bars, beach bars, supermarket and the picturesque harbor of Sisi.

Wonderful family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Sissi is a wonderful location with ample restaurants to choose from, which are not expensive. Villa Dyonisos is in a quiet location adjoining an olive grove, 15 minute walk from the town. The villa was very comfortable and clean. Audrey made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The whole family had a wonderful holiday and would return tomorrow.

Lovely property, great location, excellent service

  • 5 of 5

To give you some context, we were a party of 7 with a 1 year old, 2 people in their 30's and 4 over 65! We had a lovely break in Sisi and found the Villa to be perfect.

The lounge, dining area and kitchen are very spacious with a large balcony overlooking the olive trees - very nice to watch the sunset from. It was also very safe for a 1 year old to crawl round (once we had blocked the stairs off with cushions!).

The bedrooms were very nice - 2 lovely rooms on the top floor, 4 rooms on the bottom floor (the living space is in-between!). I would say air conditioning is a must in Crete and this villa had it in every bedroom.

The outdoor eating area is really good and the bbq excellent. The pool area was nice too.

The location of the villa is perfect. Its a 10 minute walk into the village & if you don't fancy the 10 minutes back its only 5 euros in a taxi - they were always available. The restaurants in the village were very good.

The village beach is very small BUT the beach just beside the nearby ancient palace is one of the best we have ever been to and is a 5 minute drive.

Finally, Audrey and Eva were superb throughout our stay - making sure we had everything we need, giving us recommendations. Its lovely to know that you have someone to help you just in case you need it!

I hope you find this review helpful!

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12, ranging in age from 13 to 78 stayed in Villa Dionysus for 6 glorious days and absolutely loved it!! The villa was spacious and well-equipped and the air-conditioning offered in the bedrooms was such a nice feature after a hot day in the sun! We loved the outdoor grilling area complete with bar, fridge, and wonderful table with enough seating for all of us where we enjoyed several family meals. The close proximity to town allowed us to walk in to enjoy the shops and restaurants. The property was very beautiful and well-maintained. Audrey was wonderful to offer us suggestions of places to visit. We would return here in a minute and highly recommend Villa Dionysus to other travellers! Our only regret was not staying longer!

Fab Villa for a group

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was perfect for our group of 12 people - lots of living space and well equipped. Lovely Pool area with plenty of sunbeds for everyone and the outside kitchen with BBQ area was fantastic. Audrey and her team were brilliant - very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay - which was absolutely perfect!
