Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this wonderful villa with 12 adults and one 4-year old. The villa was as beautiful as the pictures promised. There was plenty of living space for everybody. The outdoor space and swimming pool were fantastic with a beautiful over Rethymno and the sea. The location is quiet but the villa is close to shops and restaurants and the old town of Rethymno but it’s up the hill so a car is needed. The owner of the villa was super friendly and very helpful and very responsive to questions. He also gave us some very good suggestions for stores and restaurants. We had a wonderful stay.

Incredible villa in superb location

  • 5 of 5

We (party of 8 adults and 7 children) had a wonderful stay in this stunning villa. Fantastic pool area, with a very large pool (if anything the pool is even bigger than it appears on the pictures), lovely extensive gardens (which are totally secure - i.e. no danger of children getting out or anyone else getting in) with orange, apple, fig and pomegranate trees and a large vegetable plot where we could pick tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries and grapes. There are also large outdoor areas suitable for children to play in and a table tennis and pool tables. The villa was extremely clean when we arrived and a cleaner came daily and did a very thorough job of keeping it clean throughout our stay.

The villa is set on a secluded hillside above Rethymno with great views down to the sea and it is possible to walk into the outskirts of town where there are a few shops and Taverna's. It is also possible to walk to the beach, although this takes around 20 minutes and would be a demanding walk back with children. You will need to hire a car to get further into the centre of Rethymno or into the Old Town.

The villa owner is extremely friendly and helpful and even took some of our party for a drive around the area on the first morning to help us get our bearings and show us where the best shops, beaches and restaurants were. He also offered to take us out on his boat.

Rethymno is lovely, very pretty old town, great scenery, very nice beaches (warm sea, nice sand, clean and very quiet considering we were there at the height of the season).

We have been on many villa holidays before but this was easily the best we have ever stayed in and I would recommend it without any reservation - really can't think of any critical comments to make at all and we may well be back there next year!

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this villa does not do it justice. It's massive and very spacious. Laid out over three floors, there is plenty of room for a great holiday with a group. The games room is a big hit, the kids loved it. Outside is even better. The grounds are huge. The kids enjoyed the park, the basketball hoop and the lawn to run around on. It is truly better than any of expected. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone. The villa has everything you need - you will need for nothing!! My only wish is that we stayed longer. The owner and his wife are lovely. She even baked my son a birthday cake while we were there which was delicious. The town isn't far away, probably a bit too far to walk but close by if you have a car. Everything you need in one place. A trip on the owners boat is also a must - it was the best day out on the holiday. Great holiday with the family and couldn't of had a better time.

Perfect blend of luxury and comfort, stunning home

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a 10 day stay in this fabulous villa, we were expecting luxury from the photos but the reality was even better, which was a refreshing surprise. All rooms are huge the facilities exceptional, the games room and outside were great for keeping kids and adults happy, we had a few days of bad weather but no one was bored, at any point, due to the time of year the pool was very cold so didn't get used as much as we wanted but it was a fantastic pool with a large 1m deep area that then went down to 3m at the deep end, so fantastic for jumping diving etc with no concerns about hitting the bottom. There were so many pluses about the house we couldn't name them all, but it is beautifully maintained, huge, and has everything you could ever need, the design and facilities have been thought through exceptionally well, the ground were beautiful, the gardener attended almost everyday as does the cleaner. A car is a def must as the house is on the outskirts of town but only 5 mins in the car, we always found somewhere nice to eat, the owners are so helpful and accommodating anything you need they will happily arrange for you if they can, we had two meals cooked and delivered to us at the house by the owners wife and both times the food was lovely and there was lots of it :-), traditional dishes which was a lovely change to some of the standard menu fare that you get in the touristy restaurants. The owners also have a yacht which you can hire, it was an incredible day out and worth every penny if you looking for an extra wow factor. We had a small issue with there not being enough hot water for us all to shower in the morning and evening but it was a very minor thing for us overall and we worked a system that meant it didn't bother us. The house is also fantastically set up for children in terms of safety gates all around the accesses to the pool, so our little one could run around on the terrace in complete safety, also the whole perimeter is enclosed so we felt secure in letting the kids have a bit of freedom, they also loved the play park area in the grounds, again all very well looked after. The owners looked after us so well and I would not hesitate in recommending this house to anyone, we also found dealing with Kostas, the booking agent for the house, very easy and a great experience he was really helpful and quick to respond, so we would like to thank you all for making our booking and holiday so great.

Our highly aesthetic luxurious villa is built on a round structure on the green hill of St. Mark in a 5,400 m² range and is located in the eastern part of Rethymno town. It is 1 km away from Rethymno's marvellous beach and just 3.5 km away from the center of the old town of Rethymno.

Built on a three level footprint of 500 m² it makes for a peaceful oasis offering a high standard of accommodation.

The great view over the Cretan Sea combined with the spectacular views of Psiloritis and the Lefka Ori mountains can be enjoyed from all angles of the villa. This accommodation is definitely a tempting suggestion for families or large group vacations, offering not only an outstanding holiday experience full of calm and relaxation, but also full privacy.
