Relaxing peaceful Villa

  • 5 out of 5
August 2008. Lovely, well maintained, clean, excellent equipped villa with private pool. In a quiet, safe, peaceful village with an excellent choice of Tavernas for eating out. 5 minute car ride takes you to a choice of 3 beaches. Can recommend the horse riding in Pitsidia which takes you through olive groves & down to the beach. Iris was very friendly & helpful. Our family enjoyed the fact that there was no over commercialism in this area, ie, no beach sports, loud music, hassle etc. & we felt we had a true Greek Island experience. Can highly recommend this villa if you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our holiday in Villa Aphrodite, a privately situated house amongst olive groves. It is the perfect place for relaxing, whether on the balcony enjoying the amazing views or lounging by the pool. The villa is very spacious, tastefully decorated, clean and well maintained. The owners are excellent and will do everything they can to make sure you have a wonderful holiday. Their homemade olive oil and honey is delicious and their raki is the best we have tasted. Their hospitality is unsurpassed and they certainly made our holiday very memorable.
The area surrounding Villa Aphrodite is good for walking and wildlife. It is relatively undiscovered by tourism and would suit those wishing to get away from it all. A very short walk from the villa will take you into the centre of the traditional picturesque village of Pitsidia where there are supermarkets, car hire, tavernas and some restaurants selling delicious Cretan food. The small village square is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing evening in one of the two restaurants - Eva’s and The Meeting Place. Both are equally excellent and the owners are very hospitable. On the main road is a kafenion, and several more good restaurants.
The long sandy beach of Kommos is within 40 minutes walk or a few minutes drive from villa Aphrodite. The beach has one taverna serving refreshments and food. Loggerhead turtles nest on the beach in protected areas and the archaeological site of Kommos is nearby which has prevented any major tourist development of the beach.
Matala is busier than Pitsidia and is within 40 minutes walk but there is a fairly regular bus service. Here you will find the small bay and the famous caves, lots of shops selling local crafts, a market, numerous tavernas, restaurants and bars.
Moires is 10 minutes by car, offering lots of shops, supermarkets and a market on Saturdays. The Archaeological site of Phaistos is near Moires.
Overall Pitsidia and Villa Aphrodite is a good place to be based if you prefer a peaceful holiday. We had an excellent time.

Hier könnte unser Zuhause sein!

  • 5 out of 5
Wir waren mal wieder zum Ausspannen und Abschalten Anfang Mai zu Gast in der Villa Aphrodite. Letztes Mal hatten wir die Nachbarvilla Hera und waren wieder sehr zufrieden. Ein Wiederkommen ist garantiert, wenn uns nicht andere die Häuser weggeschnappt haben. Der Pool und das Haus waren sauber und gepflegt. Familienfreundlich ist es allemal, auch mit zwei Teenagern, die man mit WLan und dem Pool glücklich machen kann.

Früher sind wir öfter als Rucksackreisende nach Pitsidia gekommen und sind jetzt wieder mit Kindern hierhergekommen. Wir fühlen uns im Ort und in der Umgebung immer wieder wohl, genießen die vielen kleinen Restaurants im Ort, aber auch insbesondere an der Durchgangsstraße (Babis & Doxia). Wenn wir hier sind, ist es wie nach Hause kommen.

Owner's Response: Ganz lieben Dank für diese gute Bewertung! Es ist nicht immer einfach, den Bedürfnissen und Erwartungen der unterschiedlichen Altersstufen gerecht zu werden. Wir hinterfragen in regelmäßigen Abständen unsere Angebote im Ferienhaus, ob sie noch den hohen Erwartungen der Gäste entsprechen. Gerade vor ein paar Tagen haben wir wieder neue Vorhänge aufgehangen, Duschvorhänge mit aktuellem Design für die Bäder besorgt und viele andere Kleinigkeiten....

Sehr schönes Haus in wunderschöner Umgebung

  • 5 out of 5
Wir haben zwei sehr erholsame Wochen hier erlebt. Villa Aphrodite ist großzügig, sehr gepflegt und in Top- Lage. Die liebevolle Ausstattung und den Putzservive nach Halbzeit haben wir sehr genossen. Der Rundum- Balkon bietet grandiose Ausblicke in alle Richtungen: Meer, Berge, Olivenhaine oder in den Garten. Zwei kleine Familien haben hier gut Platz. Unsere Kinder (13, 14 J.) und mancher Erwachsene haben den Pool als willkommene Abwechslung zum nahen Meer genutzt. Auch gut geeignet für kleinere Kinder (unter Aufsicht!), da der Pool von knietief bis kopfüber langsam absinkt. Iris kümmet sich - je nach Bedarf - sehr aufmerksam und hilfsbereit um alle Sorgen und Fragen. Beim gelegentlichen Ratsch auf der Terrasse kann man über Land und Leute erfahren. Das Meer ist immer in Sichtweite und durch einen Spaziermarsch in ca. 20 min. quer durch den Olivenhain zu erreichen. Mit dem Auto sind es nur ca. 5 Minuten auf der Fahrstraße. Der nächste und beste Strand ist in Commos. Feinster Sand so weit das Auge reicht. Hier ist Baden mit oder ohne Kleidung erlaubt. Zu den Pfingstferien war hier kaum jemand unterwegs. Genauso nah ist der Strand von Kalamaki. Gerne sind wir auch am Strand entlang von Commos nach Kalamaki gelaufen 15 min). Hier kann man gut kleine Fische essen. Eine Portion reicht für zwei. Am besten mittags, abends gibt es keine mehr (Taverne Delphinos). Villa Aphrodite lädt durch den Grill und das leckere Lammfleisch vom Metzger in Pitsidia (nach Ortseingang gleich links) zur Selbstverpflegung ein. Aber die kleinen Tavernen in Pitsidia sind auch sehr zu empfehlen: Vor allem Restaurant" Mike", vor dem Hauptplatz rechts in die Seitengasse abbiegen. Sehr gut auch die Taverne Sophia in Sivas (1km).
In Pitsidia tobt nicht das Touristen- Nachtleben. Wer die Ruhe und Idylle in Meernähe und am Rand eines ursrünglicnen Dorfes mit ausreichender Infrastruktur zu schätzen weiss, ist in der Villa Aphrodite sehr gut aufgehoben.
Liebe Iris, wir kommen gerne wieder!

Erholung pur!

  • 5 out of 5
Wir haben im Mai 2010 zwei herrliche Wochen in der Villa Aphrodite verbracht.
Die Lage des Hauses ist sehr schön und das Haus bietet alles was man braucht um zu entspannen: Drinnen sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet, draußen am Pool Schatten-und Sonnenplätze für die Liegen. Im Ort sind fußläufig mehrere Tavernen zu erreichen.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Nicht zu vergessen: Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich.
Wir können das Ferienhaus nur weiterempfehlen!

  • 5 out of 5
Was ein Superurlaub! Die Villa ist sehr schön, groß, super ausgestattet und sauber(toller Service!), hat einen atemberaubenden Blick, einen schönen Pool und liegt sehr schön eingebettet in der dörflichen Umgebung. Man hat unzählige Ausflugsmöglichkeiten, Strände und das wunderschöne Dörfchen Pitsidia (mit schönen Tavernen) in Spaziernähe. Iris, die Vermieterin ist hilfsbereit, aufgeschlossen und supernett. Wir haben uns von der ersten Minute an so wohl gefühlt und wollten gar nicht mehr nach Hause. Für Erholungssuchende und Abenteurer gleichermaßen zu empfehlen!!! Wir kommen gerne wieder!

The small village of Pitsidia, with about 600 inhabitants, is situated 3km from Matala on the southern coast of Crete, The drive from Heraklion takes about an hour. Pitsidia has lots of small mini markets which cater for everyday needs. As this is not a typical tourist village you can meet the friendly locals every evening in the beautiful centre and dine in one of the various excellent small tavernas.
