Exceptional villa for families with children, in particular two family groups.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a really memorable week at this villa. Our two and four year old boys were completely obsessed by the THREE swimming pools, expansive lawn and fruit trees dripping with lemons and oranges. The self contained two bed apartment downstairs was great for our friends with their (just) one year old. We were shown great hospitality from the owner, with special dessert treats being dropped off on our last night in Crete. A very kind gesture.

We also took up Think Villa's offer of a private chef (Costas, formerly at London's Oriental Mandarin hotel) who cooked a delicious, authentic Cretan meal for us at home. We dined in the beautiful outdoor entertaining area, while our children slept inside. Bliss.

A 5-star stay in a great spot. Thank you Valia!

Absolutely Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well kept and well equipped and it a lovely peaceful and scenic location. I could not recommend it more and the management agent, Think Villa, could not have been more thoughtful and helpful throughout our stay.

As long as you are able and prepared to drive to places, it is a brilliant place to stay!

Lovely well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

My family group of 10 really enjoyed our holiday at the villa. We were met at the villa and all of our questions answered. It was extremely well equipped with everything we needed and also had a welcome basket of some food items to get us going when we arrived which was lovely. There are five bedrooms in total, the two in the basement level are actually a self contained flat which I didn't realise upon booking and whilst this would work well for other families, it didn't suit ours particularly as we wanted to stay together and this had a separate entrance with it's own kitchen and bathroom. It was nice and clean though. There were two bedrooms on the top floor and another on the middle floor with a bathroom on each floor which was handy. The top part of the villa also had it's own kitchen and living room with spacious balconies all around the villa. There were some lovely touches provided such as toiletries in the bathrooms, washing powder and fabric conditioner with the washing machine and even little children's biscuits put with the travel cots. Basic cooking items like salt, pepper, oil etc were provided too which was great. Outside there is big garden area with the pool, baby pool and Jacuzzi which was very popular. There is also a BBQ, fireplace and outdoor seating under a covered area for some shade. Once again, plenty of toys were provided in the garden to entertain the children and additional plates, cups and crockery near the BBQ. Everything had been thought of!

The location was perhaps the only thing that let it down as I understood that shops, beaches and tavernas would be in walking distance and this wasn't the case. Luckily we had hire cars but ended up having to drive them everywhere which was a shame.

The standard of cleaning was fabulous, very thorough.

All in all, a great villa and great booking service but you'll need a car!

Wonderful place, totally recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Villa is as good as shown in the photos. Extremely spacious and comfortable. The villa is big enough for 10 people to spend time together, but it also has many cozy corners that afford quiet and privacy.

Place is very quiet with a wonderful view from the balconies.

Everything is brand new and fully functioning. Very kind and warm hosts.

Moreover, the location is great for visiting beautiful city of Rethymno and it's great beaches.

Highly recommended!

Very nice stay

  • 4 of 5

Outside it's like on the pictures, very well and nice garden, swimming pool and kitchen.

Valia was very helpful for all requests and to fix some issues.

Housekeeping every 3 days is a very hot points ! we appreciated it.

The mattresses are not very confortables, especially if you spend more than 1 week there.

Beautifull place with great garden

  • 4 of 5

We rented this villa for 2 weeks with our 2 kids.

Overall the house and the garden with pool and jacuzzi are exactly as on the photos.

The place is very quiet, and views from the various balconies are absolutly gorgeous (especially panorama on the distant moutains).

Dining at night under the lovely pergola after a beach day is really a must.

Everything is new and well maintened, managers we've seen very nice and kind to us.

The location is ideal for touring around even with small kids, (children outdoor toys in the garden are really a plus) .

To conclude : a great villa with a nice contemporary design feeling, in a very ressourcefull and familly-friendly area of Crete.

We recommend it!
