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

What makes this villa unique

Lovely setting in an olive grove, on just 10 minutes easy walking distance from the sea, beach , harbor and beautiful village of Sisi

Guestbook comments from the manager

The reservation process flawless, and our arrival, late in the evening went without a hitch. Andy and Nikos ensured we had plenty of car space for family and luggage and the rental cars were spotless, well maintained and low mileage. Your personal welcome on arrival at the villa Zeus with candles lit around the pool area, outdoor toys for my grandson thoughtfully placed in the garden, and the kitchen stocked with essentials made us feel special and immediately after our long journey. The Villa Zeus is stunning and in a perfect location. Sissi was an ideal location for our family group ranging in age from 2 to 80! Audrey provided superb guidance on where to eat. We never had a bad meal. Sissi restaurants offered spectacular food for 6 for less than the cost of a couple bottles of wine and pizza at our local Italian restaurant. We vacation with family every year and this year was by far our best vacation. Sissi and is a friendly village with something for everyone, and Villa Zeus with its beautiful interior, extensive garden and cooling pool is an experience we will never forget, and we WILL be back!

Beautiful villa , great location,

  • 5 of 5

The villa was superb as was the garden and swimming pool . A separate bathroom for each bedroom was ideal.

The location is also perfect being out of town with the accompanied privacy but only a 10 to 15 minute walk into Sisi with its many restaurants.

That management are superb and it shows in the impeccable villa and outside areas and Audrey kindly organised car hire for us and Maria gave us a warm and friendly welcome and looked after our needs .

Excellent and professional service all round thank you and we had a wonderful holiday.

Absolutely stunning villa - paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The villa looked amazing in photos but we all felt it was even better in real life! It is very spacious inside and out, the pool is lovely and the views from the garden are beautiful. There is nothing we would have changed at all! It is about a 15 minute walk to the main town / sea where the majority of the restaurants are and we really enjoyed doing the walk every day - particularly after eating so much! It was nice to be so close but also a bit further away from it all. Audrey and her team were fantastic - super helpful and responsive to queries whilst we were there and they recommended some fantastic local restaurants that we tried. This villa really does offer paradise - we wish we had booked up for 2 weeks but will definitely be coming back.

Pleasant spacious villa, great outdoor areas. But poor kitchen design & tiny prep areas.

  • 4 of 5

Comprehensive & helpful reception chat; several plumbing/electrical issues were promptly dealt with. A few 'luxuries' were missing, eg toiletries esp shower soap. Arriving on Easter Saturday meant we were very limited on shopping & fuel (we discovered later a bigger supermarket had been open in the next town), and Easter also had an impact on one restaurant recommendation as the food was appalling. Audrey was really helpful however and dealt with any problems or disasters with good humour.

Our Dream Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We paid quite a lot of money for this holiday and we had high expectations. We weren't disappointed. The villa is beautiful, spacious and had everything in it that we needed. The pool is a good size and so warm! Eva greeted us on our arrival and called by a couple of times to check everything was OK, once with a watermelon and an armful of home grown produce. Sisi has a beautiful harbour surrounded by fine bistros. The people are all very friendly and spoke excellent English. The beaches are all good, we used Malia beach the most because it was sandy, but we also went to Milatos for a swim in the harbour which was much quieter.

Fab luxury Villa on Crete

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Villa Zeus for two weeks and we cannot recommend the villa highly enough.

The villa itself is very spacious and comfortable with every amenity you could think of to make your stay enjoyable.

The pool is large, very clean and safe. The large gardens are very well kept and give a feeling of even more space to enjoy.

The villa's situation is a delight, with uninterrupted views of the inland mountains. It's close enough to the lovely little port of Sissi for easy access by foot or car, but far enough out to ensure a good peaceful night's sleep.

Audrey and her team are very professional and approachable. Audrey was constantly available when required with help and info about where to eat etc and where to visit, making us relax and enjoy the whole holiday experience.

We certainly plan to re-visit the villa in the near future, and we think that speaks for itself.

villa Zeus holiday

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Villa Zeus. It is a beautiful, spacious and well decorated property with good layout, beautiful views and a very good swimming pool. It is very convenient for Sisi and as a location in general. Audrey is most welcoming and sorts anything that requires sorting ! We would definitely consider staying again there or at any of the other villa’s that are part of this group’.

Located on the edge of the village of Sisi, North East Crete, set amongst the olive groves with easy access to the road. The villa enjoys beautiful views over the valley to the mountains. Set in it's own secured grounds with parking area the villa is far enough away from the busy holiday resorts yet close enough to take advantage of their facilities for shopping and dining. Just 1 km to the waterfront, fishing harbour, tavernas and shops of Sisi with and safe sandy beaches.
