About the Owner

Villa Manolia , Villa DiStella and Villa Olia is a family business which started in 1998 by Mr. Manoli Giannouli when he builded villa DiStella with great care and personnal work.

In the following years Villa Manolia was built and in 2012 Villa Olia .

Its goal was to keep the Cretan heritage and tradition and be able to spread it by letting other people experience the area, landscape, agriculture and way of life of Crete. Today the Giannouli Family may promise that after all those years of experience could offer high quality holidays and an experience you usually don't get when tourist.

Wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Villa Distella, Manolis & Stella were so welcoming and helpful. The villa is beautiful we were a large party with children and there was plenty of space, lots of outdoor areas to relax in and the pool was fabulous. The village of Prines is lovely a real family place, close to the hustle and bustle of Retymnon but far enough away for you to feel off the tourist track. We will definitely be going back.

The best villa we have yet stayed in

  • 5 of 5

We have booked villas in Europe for the past 15 years and Villa di Stella is by far the best one we have stayed in. From the correspondence ahead of our stay responding to questions about the local area to the owners posting on some left behind items, we could not have asked for more. We were a party of up 8 ranging from 13 - 75 and everyone loved it. As others have mentioned, the villa is immaculate, private, spacious, functional, well air-conditioned, has plenty of terraces to sit on, huge clean pool, plenty of sun loungers for everyone, gorgeous plants and flowers in the garden, is so well located for the local tavernas which you can walk to and also near to Rethymno. Cannot rate the friendliness of the owners and their efficiency to sort a couple of very minor issues out for us as soon as possible (just wifi!) I just hope we have an opportunity to return another time. Thank you to all the family!

Fabulous villa in traditional greek village

  • 5 of 5

Super villa in the traditional village of Prines. Perfect for a relaxing, chill out holiday. Villa accommodation is kept immaculate by the proud and friendly owners. The villa itself provides everything needed for your holiday including beautiful bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, dining area, as well as three outdoor areas, two pools (one perfect for small children). The owners make you feel so at home, they even provided a lovely welcome pack on our arrival as well as other tasty foods throughout our stay - freshly cooked cheese pies, a dessert, local cheese and even gave us a little leaving gift to remember our holiday.

The villa is in easy walking distance from the local Giannikos Taverna which serves traditional and reasonably priced food, along with a very friendly, warm welcome.

Would I recommend this property or go back - within a heartbeat!

Fantastic villa/holiday

  • 5 of 5

Villa di Stella was a fantastic villa with a great pool and 3 lovely terraces which all got the sun at various times of the day. The villa was spotless and a maid service was provided half way through the holiday. The owners were extremely friendly and generous, providing us with a welcome pack, desert one evening and a full meal another evening. There are 2 tavernas within a 5 minute walk of the villa and Rethymnon was a 15 minute drive away. We would highly recommend the villa and we would love to go back there in the future.
