Perfect accommodation for a relaxing holiday

A fantastic private and secluded villa with superb facilities: Very clean and well maintained and perfect for a relaxing holiday: We arrived at the villa to freshly home baked moussaka as well as other home grown produce; once again Stella thanks to your parents for their hospitality.
Within easy reach by car of Rethymnon, which has an abundance of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. We ventured out on a quad bike safari, 4 hour guided trip through the mountains - well worth it; also if you are feeling fit take a day trip to walk the Samaria Gorge, descending from 2,100 meters over a distance of 16 km down to sea level and a boat trip back to meet the coach before returning back to Rethymnon - fantastic photographic opportunities.
We would definitely recommend Villa Artemis and hope to return again in the future.

We had a fantastic holiday and everyone adults to teenagers to our 4 year old all loved it. The pool was used constantly as was the gym. The views are vast and the olive grove at the back was peaceful. We enjoyed the BBQ as well as wandering down to the village for taverna meals. We felt well looked after and the family are incredibly welcoming and hospitable. The only minor issue (mainly for the teenagers) was the unreliable internet. Other than that we absolutely loved it and have mentioned often since coming home that we wish we were still there! Thank you to the whole family for a wonderful holiday.

Very nice villa with a wonderful pool area, calm

A very nice villa in a green landscape with sea view. The owner and the architect who designed and built this house and pool area did a great job. Everything is even better than it looks like on the photos in the description.

The pool is fantastic and it is cleaned every day by the owner in the early morning without disturbing the tenants. Thus, it has very clear and pleasant water. The house is cleaned twice a week after advance notification. The furniture and the equipment inside and outside the house are modern and elegant. In the living room there is a flatscreen TV with international programmes, a DVD player and a Play Station and you can use Wifi. Two of the three bedrooms have got a TV, too. There is even a fitness room in the house!

It is calm there (olive trees, a lot of other green trees and some sheep around), always with a slight north wind which is why it is not too hot in the summer time.

The property is not far from Rethymnon (about 8 km), but you can have good traditional food in the village Prines in the tavern "Giannikos" for example and buy what you need in the super markets and shops in the near villages Prines and Atsipopouli. The road leading to the villa is paved and not too steep.

The owner and his family are really nice, hospitable and discreet. They also speak English and German.

We can only speak positively about the house, the outside area and the landlords, it was the best place we ever rented and we can only recommend it to everyone who looks for peace and quiet and for a house and pool with great comfort.

Absoluter Wohlfühlurlaub in der Villa Artemis

  • Review Submitted: 05-Aug-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
September 2013 werden wir zum 3. Mal in dieser Villa unseren Urlaub verbringen.
Wir lieben Kreta sehr und die Eigentümer dieses Hauses geben uns schon bei der Ankunft
immer wieder das Gefühl willkommen zu sein.
Obst,Brot,Käse und vieles andere mehr sowie Raki und Olivenöl aus eigener Herstellung
stehen bereit,vor allem wenn man spät anreist weiß man diesen Service sehr zu schätzen.
Nicht zu vergessen die wunderbare Moussaka hausgemacht von Frau Sofoulakis , ein
Genuss.
Das Haus ist wirklich fantastisch und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet , vor allem aber, hat
es eine ruhige traumhafte Einzellage.
Ein Mietwagen ist Voraussetzung um in die Stadt oder zu einem der herrlichen Strände zu
gelangen.Es gibt sehr viele wirklich schöne Ziele in der näheren Umgebung,nimmt man
sich mehr Zeit kann man natürlich auch die entlegensten Ortschaften erkunden.Wir waren
schon bis nach Ierapetra, der südlichsten Stadt Europas.
Bei der Rückkehr lädt der wunderbare Pool zum Erfrischen ein.
Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet was benötigt wird und darüber hinaus.
Alles ist sehr sauber und die Eigentümer kommen zwei Mal in der Woche um alles zu
reinigen und frische Bettwäsche aufzuziehen und Handtücher zu wechseln.
Die Reinigung wird vorher angekündigt , so dass man nicht unbedingt im Haus sein muß.
Die Diskretion wissen wir zu schätzen.
Die Villa hat eine tolle Dachterasse,von der man einen weiten Blick bis zum Meer hat,oder
man genießt herrliche Sonnenuntergänge bei einer Flasche griechischem Wein.
Unten im Haus befindet sich ein kleines ,von der Eigentümerfamilie liebevoll eingerichtetes
Museum,hier bekommt man einen interessanten Einblick in die Vergangenheit .
Wer vom vielen guten griechischen Essen und dem Faulenzen am Pool das Bedürfnis hat
sich ein paar Pfunde abzutrainieren , oder einfach nur Freude an sportlicher Betätigung
hat geht in den Fitnessraum und hat dazu Gelegenheit . Macht echt Spaß und dann ab in
den Pool.
Ein wirklich wunderbares Haus mit einer sehr herzlichen Eigentümerfamilie .
Wir freuen uns im September wieder ihre Gäste zu sein.

Unforgettable holidays

  • Review Submitted: 06-Jul-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
18 June-2July2013
Our friends and ourselves have had many Villa holidays on the Spanish Mainland,The Balearics and other Greek Islands
and whilst all of them have been very good, none has matched Villa Artemis for the accommodation,
warmth of welcome and overall efforts by the Sofoulaki family to ensure our stay was as good as it was.
The Villa itself is relatively new, in first class condition and very spacious with every thing you could require when on holiday.
The bathrooms which we personally consider to be very important were plentiful and spacious and the cleanliness of the villa
with bedding and towels changed twice a week was very good.
The location is such that you require a car but this is no different to most other villa holidays and although initially we had a little difficulty finding the villa, once we had our bearings we were delighted with the very large, secure, private and quiet location set amongst olive groves with sheep in the adjacent fields and the closest villa some 100metres away.
We were greeted by a welcome pack of various foodstuffs including mother Roula's moussaka and we subsequently received other tasty treats during the holidays.
Especially nice was when one night my friend and I were invited to the sheep shearing( a local custom)in the next field by son George and father Dimitios and we had a barbeque and drinks with the males in the family and their friends and were made very welcome whilst Roula took food to our good ladies in the villa.
Rethymno, which is about 6km from villa is a large vibrant town with many restaurants and tavernas.The ones in the old town were our favourites and the atmosphere was very good.
The Fortezza is a magnificant old fortress overlooking Rethymno and there is also a wide expanse of beach to enjoy.
Our favourite beach however was at Eskopi, approximately 10mins away by car with its tavernas next to the beach and free sunbeds for patrons of the taverna.
A visit to Plakia on the south coast is well worth a visit where you can also stop at the monestry at Mon Prevali.
Prines is the local village about 1km from the villa with a couple of small but welcoming tavernas.
Finally our very warm thanks to all the Sofoulaki family for what was a great holiday with a special mention for daughter Stella who was our main point of contact and of course mother
Roula.
Thanks again and we have no hesitation in recommending Villa Artemis to anyone visiting Crete.

The region of Rethymno in Crete offers some of the most interesting and beautiful landscapes in Greece. Our villa Artemis is located in Prines, a picturesque village close to Rethymno. An area of outstanding natural beauty, the countryside lends itself to fascinating walks and mountain biking. The traditional village of Prines is just a few minutes stroll from our villa to find a local tavern and a mini-market. There are also local shops, bakery, butcher, cafes and chemist close to our villa. Within a 10 minute drive from Prines there are sandy beaches which offer good facilities. Situated in the middle of Crete, our villa provides an ideal base to explore Crete. Some interesting sights close to Rethymno are the monasteries of Arkadi and Preveli, Plakias, Lake Kournas, the natural springs of Argiroupolis, Episkopi and Georgioupolis beaches for beach lovers.
