simply wonderful

  • 5 out of 5
we have enormously appreciate our stay in crete and more exactly in the villa fortetsa.
the things which are the most seduced us and that we shall retain by top everything, it is the fantastic view of this magnificent nature.
this area of olive trees, this incredible sunset on the sea, a delight for eyes, without forgetting the goats which go down the mountain.
the house is perfect, and the simply brilliant swimming pool.
it is ideal for the rest and to admire the nature.
many thanks for all and special thanks to georgious and claudia, they are very kind.

Best privat pool ever....

  • 4 out of 5
We have stayed in this house for a week. It is a nice and quiet place and the pool was simply just perfert (perfect temperature, size and no clorine). Our kids loved it. The local caretaker was very helpful and there was no problem in getting to and from the airport (We have rented a car through a travel Agency, which the owner knew and they were very helpful). The house is situated very private but with the most beautiful wiev over the landscape and sea.

Fantastic location and views

  • 5 out of 5
We had an excellent stay of 14 days with two persons. The villa is situated in a beautiful olive garden and has really fantastic views over sea and mountains. The pool is excellent and quite large. You need a car, but you are very quickly at the beach, the city of Rethimnon, but also a lot of interesting places in the mountains behind. Housekeeper Susi lives in the small village nearby and attends kindly to all your needs. We can recommend without any doubt.

Fantastische plek om tot rust te komen.

  • 4 out of 5
Wij verbleven hier met z'n vieren een weekje eind april 2013. Wat een geweldige ligging! Uurtje rijden vanaf Heraklion. Je moet wel even een hobbelig landweggetje door maar dan ben je ook op je landgoed, volledig privé, zonder buren, met een fantastisch uitzicht over zee met schitterende ondergaande zon. Huis voldeed prima aan onze verwachtingen ( keukentje is niet te groot, kleine ijskast, maar voor ons voldoende). Alles was keurig schoon. En gezellige ontvangst door de beheerster Susi (spreekt Duits, Engels en Grieks) met drankje en kaasje. Wat een heerlijke plek om tot rust te komen. Heerlijk huis, prima bedden, fijn overdekt terras waar je heerlijk kunt zitten eten, met buiten barbecue; ruim grondgebied om het huis heen en een zalig groot zwembad (12 mtr; niet verwarmd, maar dat is niet nodig). Met de auto in 10 min naar dorp Stravomenos waat 2 (kleinere) supermarkten zijn, waar je alles kunt krijgen. Een grote Lidl iets verder (20 min rijden). Ook in 10 minuten naar de kustweg vanwaar je diverse standjes kunt vinden. Zeer leuk is het plaatsje Bali: strand aan baai met vele terrassen (half uurtje rijden); en drie kwartie rijden naar Rethymno: gezellige oude stad. Wij waren er in het voorjaar, aslles nog rustig aan de kust; maar ook al zou het daar druk zijn, je komt steeds terug op je geweldige landgoed: een oase van rust. Een adres om te onthouden! Voor rustliefhebbers!

Villa Fortetsa in August 2010

  • 5 out of 5
We've spent two weeks in August 2010 at this fabulous location.

This house is a marvellous place in a remote area with fantastic sea views, a nice garden and a big pool surrounded by olive trees and grazing gouts. The villa provids all facilities one needs to spend relaxing days on the island.

Although remote it is centrally located for most of the main attractions of the island.

The housekeeper Jorgos is doing a very good job and keeps himself in the background. However in case of a need he is there. Jorgos has an excellent knowledge about the island.


To hire a car we recommend Manolis from Prentakis Tour. He is a great guy especially since he provided a car with a full tank in those days when there was a shortage of fuel!

Owner's Response: Jorgos will stay available in the near future to advise guest on where to eat, where to go, using his inside knowledge of Crete.

Enjoy real Krete but live like a king in Villa For

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in may 2005 in Villa Fortetsa for the first time and enjoyed it very much. Spring 2009 we returned and had even a better time! The view from the terrace, garden and house is still amazing but the garden became mature and looks very nice. All your wishes are fulfilled in this house. It is clean and everything you wish in a villa like this is available. Outside the villa it is even better... lying on a hill, perfect view over the scenery and the sea, quietly, only sounds of birds and goat on the background, and all facilities you may wish. Wake up and get a refreshing bath in the swimming pool, breakfast on the terrace, enjoy your day in the garden and swimming pool or discover real Krete. Have a barbecue and good meal on the terrace at sunset. Real enjoying good life!
Erfi is a very small original Krete village, very nice to drink a Greek coffee or raci with the people of Erfi in one of the two small bars.
The house managers Claudia and Jorgos are very polite and available on the background with useful tips about visits, restaurants, site seeing, local food (for example a real Greek dinner with the neighbors) etc. etc.
We are looking forward to come back again, hopefully next year!
