I work to a local fitness club and also i spend a lot of time with our family property, trying to make the best for all our visitors who are coming every year to enjoy and explore the beautiful Crete. I also have my own farm with lots of animals and horses, so you can enjoy a walk with them.

''Beautiful villa very well equipped and clean in a peaceful setting. Spent 2 weeks relaxing in the gorgeous sunshine with Rethymnon a short drive away offering everything you might require from tavernas, bus and designer shops.



If you want to set away from the hustle and bustle of city life to relax then this place is perfect.

Thank you to the owners for making it such a special place, will definitely return in the future and also would recommend to family and friends.

A lovely stay in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Pelagia and Elena were so welcoming and even cooked us a traditional Cretan meal. The villa was clean and well-maintained, and more than big enough for five people. We really enjoyed our holiday in Villa Pelagia and would be happy to come here again!

Such a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was such an incredible find - we had a fantastic holiday, made even better by the lovely Pelagia and Elena. They were so incredibibly helpful and welcoming, the villa and surrounding area is beautiful - so nice and secluded but close enough to Rethymno and local shops/beaches. Would definitely come back!

Chilled to the extreme

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful week of relaxation we had in this villa. The owners made us feel welcome and could not do more to make our stay so fantastic.

A welcome pack was there for us, the villa was spotless, spacious and easy to relax in.

I would recommend this villa to anyone. A car is essential as it is a bit of the beaten track, but there are many car hire firms at the airport, or the owners can link you to a local company.

For us, the villa was ideally situated for touring the island, everything was within a 2 hour drive, and the drive through the mountains to the south of the island and the beautiful beaches was an experience.

If I had to make one critique, it would be the never ending offers of the local hooch - Raki ! Not for the faint hearted.

A most enjoyable week we want to repeat again

Quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable accommodation. Owners friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

Pool area well maintained with 4 beds and 2 umbrella. There is no way of shutting the pool area off, so not suitable for young children.

You definitely need a car here as it is in the middle of nowhere, that however is part of the charm.

Bar a Eleven was fantastic for waiting and watching the sun set. The beach hear the villa was ok.

Peaceful villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa was situated about an hour from either airport and we had a locally hired car o get us about which I think was essential. The villa was a really good size and all the rooms were spacious. The aircon system was also a heater which we needed in the bedrooms on the first couple of nights as it was very cool at night. The owner was very friendly and we contacted her a couple of times during the holiday to ask her things and she was very helpful. She cooked us 2 traditional Cretan meals although we were not so keen on the liver, heart and intestine soup although I understand this is a traditional Easter soup. The villa was very clean with fresh smelling bedding. The only downside was the lines of damp in the kitchen particularly and over our 2 weeks we watched the mould grow and expand and push paint off the wall. I think there is an underlying issue which needs to be looked at and the base units in the kitchen had an awful damp smell every time we opened them. That said, we would stay here again but maybe more in the summer so we can use the pool. The pool was small and too cold for us to use in April but had ample sunbathing areas around it so would be great to dip in and out of in the hotter months. We would also recommend it to our friends. We found some great local places to eat in and walk round and some of the mountain villages were well worth the drive. My highlight was the trip to Spinalonga which brought more reality the Victoria Hislop's book, The Island.
