Villa naya

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 2 weeks in the fabulous Villa Naya in Rethymnon . The villa is amazing , we have stayed in a lot of villas in different countries but villa Naya is by far the best , it has everything you could possibly wish for and more , there isn't one thing I could think of that would make the villa any better and we made use of everything . The pool table and ping pong table got lots of use by the men and the cinema room was great for the little one as were the toys . The hot tub was a big hit with everyone . There was also a spare cot that could be wheeled outside for the baby so he could always be with us . Natasha was brilliant , she was there to greet us when we arrived (very late) and had got groceries in for us to last a few days and also ordered us pizzas as we hadn't eaten . Best pizzas ever from the pizza restaurant on the corner !! The town is easy to walk to and has lovely shops and restaurants , also a harbour with lots of places to eat around it . The beech is also within walking distance . We had a day at baja beach arranged for us all to have free entry for a day to Baja beach club and we had a gazebo , sun beds and towels and also a bottle of wine , all complimentary , lovely day . Any problems we had or if we wanted to know anything , Sophia was at the end of the phone to help us . Nothing was to much trouble . Natasha came in with cleaners one day and gave a box full of pastries for our breakfast and on the last day we had late flights an we were allowed to stay on until 6pm when we could drive straight to the airport . We would highly recommend Villa Naya and can't wait to go back

Just back from a stay at Villa Naya. Can't praise it highly enough. It's a modern, clean and spacious villa with fantastic views over the sea and towards the old town. The owners have thought of everything. The kitchen is very well equipped, as is the utility area ( the washing machine and dryer dials are in Greek but we Googled the model number). Outside there are plenty of sun beds and there is a great area for outside dining. Internet worked perfectly. This is ideal for a large group of people as there are lots of sitting areas and we never felt on top of each other. My only regret is that our school holiday week next year is already booked. Thank you also for the groceries and pastries you left for us. A great place to stay!

Fantastic villa with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Villa Naya. From start to finish everything was handled very efficiently. The owner Natassha met us on arrival to explain how things worked etc. She even ordered us a take- away pasta/pizza from a local restaurant as we arrived late. There was gluten-free pasta for my son who is a coeliac. We had a couple of problems with the TV & aircon but they were sorted very quickly. The villa is spotless and very well maintained, providing little extras that you don't usually get. Its location is really good and you can get taxis easily to and from the old town for 6 euros. The games room is fantastic and we all enjoyed the pool table and table tennis. The beds were very comfortable and it was lovely to have fresh bedding and towels every few days. We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and were looked after very well. Thanks to Natassha for our home- made pastries and the gluten-free cookies for my son, so thoughtful. The reason I have not given it 5 stars is that the kitchen was very small for a villa of its size and it could do with some softer lighting in the gazebo dining area. However this doesn't detract from how good this villa is. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Villa Naya

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent two weeks in the most fantastic Villa Naya in Rethymnon Crete 6 adults and 4 children age range from 12 years to 3 years.The Villa had something for everyone.Fabulous views of Rethymnon castle and harbour.A wonderful pool hot tub,table tennis,a pool table multi gym.A cinema room where the kids could retreat to when it got to hot and a great undercover B.B.Q.area again with great views an ideal place to watch the fabulous sunsets.The Villa was ideally situated to be able to walk to the beach 10 to 15 mins.and the old town just a little further.I would recommend a car if you have young children as there is a bit of a climb back to the Villa.Although Taxis from the old town were only 6 euros for 4 people.Natasha the owner was brilliant nothing to much trouble.We arrived late past 10 pm but she had already brought us the basics to enable us to get breakfast the next morning also she arrived on the first morning with a box full of croissants and pastries.She also went out of her way to retrieve a child's buggy we had somehow left at Chania airport,as well as lending us one of her own.

From the moment we first enquired about the villa Kostas from Etouri vacation rental management was exceptionally proffesional giving us all the information we required any email we sent was replied to within a couple of hours.On our last day we had to vacate the Villa by 11am as there were other guests arriving and our flight was not till 21 30pm.Kostas recommended that we should go to tha Baya beach club.There we could spend the day leave our luggage have a meal and shower.Also have our airport transfer pick us up from there.When we arrived to our surprise he had arranged for us to have a cabana beside the beach iced water soft drinks for the kids and a bottle of wine all complimentary.

Sophia also of Etouri was our direct contact in Rethymnon again nothing was to much trouble she was so helpful arranging the transfers and excursions and and solving any problem that occurred.

We would highly recommend both the Villa and would definitely use Etouri for booking in the future.

Everything we could have wished for

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at Villa Naya and would go back without question. We are 2 families with 7 of us in total which meant the children could have their own rooms and there was plenty of space for us all not to be on top of each other. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble to organise. We had arranged for Chef Stelios to cook for us on the first night, his traditional Cretan menu was just perfect and fed us all for lunch the next day too. We discovered the old town very quickly and spent most nights eating in beautiful Tavernas and walking the quaint cobbled streets. Would highly recommend Avli and Petite Fleur for food.

Sophia organised a day at Baja Beach which was great and very unexpected. Most days though we stayed at the beautiful Villa as everything is just perfectly laid out for lazy days by the pool.

Thank you to the whole team who made our first family holiday to Crete very memorable for all the right reasons. We will definately be back.

Beautiful family villa in a superb location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, luxury villa in a superb location. The villa was outstanding in every way and was everything we could wish for. It had a stunning pool area, a great games and cinema room to keep the young ones entertained and more importantly, fantastic views from almost every room in the house. Kostas and Sophia looked after us so well during our stay too.

Hidden on a hill overlooking the city of Rethymno, close to Kastelakia area, Villa Naya is located in a private land surrounded by olive trees, on the outskirts of Rethymno city offering the best location and sea view that you can find in the whole central Crete.

Relax and enjoy the quietness of the natural environment and a variety of panoramic sunset sea views from any angle of the pool area and balconies!

Totally isolated but close to everything as Rethymno city centre and the beach is only 1 km away, the villa offers full privacy to our guests and a variety of facilities for the whole family to be happy.

Take advantage of the location, relax in a quiet private area but also feel like staying in a town with various amenities in a small distance away. Several choices of different markets and shops, any kind of services, restaurants and taverns, bars, night clubs and beach bars are only a few of what you can find around Rethymno which lies in front of the villa.

Finally only 450 meters away from our villa there is a unique park where children can play with the supervision of educators. The park has a small zoo, a mini soccer field, an organised playground and a great tavern with view of the town for parents to enjoy!

The closest beaches to the villa that we suggest you visit are:

The long sandy organised beach of Rethymno with its numerous water sports only 1 km away The sandy beach of Episkopi which is 19 km away on your way to Chania. In the same direction Georgiopoulis is 26 km away with its shallow waters which are ideal for families with small children and the sandy beach of Panormo village on your way to Heraklion which is 21 km away. 

On the South coast of the island you can also discover some of Crete’s most amazing natural beaches such as “Schinaria”, “Damnoni”, “Triopetra”, “Agios Pavlos” and "Preveli". The distance to  the South coast from the villa is about 40 minutes by car and all the above beaches are located near to Plakias village where you can find shops and many taverns.

Crete is a magical island filled with myth and legend, a place to relax the ideal choice for all the family.  

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different "location category" on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own "location categories").
