Exactly as described and expected but more so

  • 5 out of 5
Just two of us stayed for a week. We felt guilty and not having two more to share the lovely experience! The property is immaculate and well kitted out. We enjoyed drinks and breakfasts on the upper terrace and downstairs in the shaded part of the very private garden. Chania Airport was easy and the owner's most precise directions got us to the villa without a hitch, even in the dark, in 40 minutes. It is in a charming location just outside the village, but not too remote, along a virtually unused track. The walk through the Olive groves to get to the two tavernas was a genuine leisurely 11minutes and a part of our holiday which we really enjoyed every day. It is quiet here, we weren't aware of any midges or mosquitoes. There was no passing traffic. We drank the local wine, sampled the local olive oil and enjoyed the local food. If possible shop before arriving, Penny the owner will have told you where; we were just too late. It is a good base from which to explore this part of Crete, with beaches, noisier towns, delightful old villages, archeological sites etc all never too far away.
The satellite TV is not what one might expect at home but then we never switched it on. Also there is no WiFi, but again it was little bother as every taverna and even some entire town areas all offered free WiFi. Mobile phone reception was very good. Everyone including the owner here were very friendly and we would certainly recommend it to like-minded travelers.

Great villa

  • 5 out of 5
Family of four spent two weeks in this great villa. The kids loved the pool and the location is great since it is just a 10 minute walk down to the village and a 15 minute drive to the beaches. A rental car is probably needed though.

Lovely holiday in a beautiful villa

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a lovely holiday in this beautiful villa. The villa is well situated, in the country but within walking distance of the nearest village.The villa was spotless and well equipped with everything you could possibly need, including a large swimming pool. It was so peaceful and the views all around were magnificent. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings watching the sun set. Although you can walk to Gavalochori which has some very nice restaurants, a car is really needed to explore further afield. Penny, the owner lives next door and was very helpful with advice on places to visit, local restaurants etc. We enjoyed every minute of our two weeks holiday, just wish we could have stayed longer. I can highly recommend this villa to anyone planning a holiday in Crete.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your fantastic review of Villa Ariadne and recommending it so highly.
It is wonderful to know that you enjoyed every minute of your holiday on this beautiful island and especially your stay at Villa Ariadne.
I think presentation of the villa is most important and like to create a home away from home.
for my guests.

Book it if you can!

What you get is better than what you see on the website photographs. 'Ariadne' made our holiday - comfortable, clean, beautifully mantained villa set in an idyllic location with breathtaking views. Penny is very friendly and welcoming, offering many useful tips on the area. Two excellent tavernas are within a few minutes walk. We highly recommend the one on the village square next to the monument, and the one past the two small village supermarkets on the other side of the road. Good strong car is advisable to tackle those country roads.

Simply delightful

  • 5 out of 5
Many a time the photographs and description of a location are designed to lure you in, not so with Villa Ariadne!. What you see is TRULY what you get. The location and facilities are SUPERB for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. And Penny makes an excellent host.
WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
The only downside would be the walk into Gavalahori, a little difficult for elderly or very young. But this should NOT detract you.
