About Thei Syfantou

My name is Thei Syfantou. I'm married and mother of two children. I've grown up in many places of the country and I used to visit my grandma in Rethymno every summer. Since I was a child I'm falling in love with this area and although my father is from the famous Corfu island, I prefer Rethymno. I had the chance to study in the University of Athens on a very interesting subject in social anthropology about Cretan manners and customs and that helped me to learn even more about this magical island with the ancient civilization and the open-hearted, warm and hospitable inhabitants. I'm willing to share all these with my guests in LOTUS and ALOE villas.

Thei Syfantou purchased this villa in 2008

Why Thei Syfantou chose Rethymnon

ALOE villa is located in the most beautiful and quiet place of the traditional village Prines and it has splendid view of the sunset, White Mountains and the Cretan Sea. Also it is only 5' driving from the town of Rethymno, 2000 m from the beach and 3 km from the University of Crete.The guests can do a lot of activities in this area, such as all the aquatic sports, walking in gorgeous nature, trekking, bird-watching, fishing, playing chess, tennis, swimming, enjoying various sandy beaches, studying in the Cretan University's library (2.5 km from ALOE), cycling, strolling, or simply relaxing near the ALOE pool.

What makes this villa unique

It's best location, it's fantastic view, it's unique healthy micro-climate and the nice traditional architecture. It is located in an advantageous position for visiting all the worth visiting and historical places in Crete.

A Warm Welcome in Prines

  • 5 out of 5
MY FAMILY AND I STAYED IN THIS LOVELY VILLA FOR A FORTNIGHT IN AUGUST 2011. THERE WAS AMPLE ROOM FOR 5 ADULTS AND 1 TEENAGER. LOTUS VILLA WAS WELL EQUIPPED AND VERY CLEAN.THE DELIGHTFUL SWIMMING POOL WAS VERY PRIVATE AND CAUGHT THE SUN FOR MOST OF THE DAY.. OUR EVENINGS WERE SPENT ON THE BALCONY ENJOYING THE GREAT VIEWS AND WONDERFUL STARRY SKIES. ROSE OUR MAID WAS LOVELY AND NOTHING WAS TOO MUCH TROUBLE FOR HER. THIS VILLA IS WELL PLACED AND FOR THE NIGHT LIFE IN RETHYMNON A SHORT TAXI RIDE AWAY. MOST OF THE SHOPPING CAN BE DONE WITH A 5 MINUTE DRIVE AWAY IN THE LOCAL FRIENDLY SUPERMARKET, BAKERY AND CAKE SHOP. IN THIS VILLAGE THERE'S ALSO AN EXCELLENT TAKE AWAY, BAR AND RESTAURANT. THEI THE OWNER OF LOTUS VILLA IS A WARM AND CHARMING LADY WHO SPEAKS EXCELLENT ENGLISH. WE HOPE TO RETURN SOME DAY SOON.

Ein kleines Paradis

  • 5 out of 5
Alles war wie im Bilderbuch. Obwohl wir im Winter verreist sind war der Pool und der tägliche Blick aufs Meer Balsam für die Seele. Im Dorf, in dem die Villa liegt, fühlte man sich in eine andere Zeit zurückversetzt. Eine Zeit, in der Hektik keine Rolle spielt. Auch die Gastfreundschaft der Einheimischen und der nette Umgang mit der Eigentümerin haben dazu beigetragen, dass wir uns sofort heimisch gefühlt haben. Durch die kretische Landhauseinrichtung fühlten wir uns den Menschen dort auch gleich zugehörig. Wenn wir nicht gerade gemütlich am Kamin saßen, bummelten wir in den Geschäften des nahe gelegenen Rethymnons oder machten Ausflüge in die tolle Umgebung. Zurück in der Villa erwartete uns ein sauberes und gemütliches zu Hause. Alles in allem mehr als zu empfehlen, schade, dass der Urlaub so schnell vorbei war.
