A beautiful villa! From the start, the booking was easy and the owner’s family were very responsive and accommodating to all our enquiries right up to our day of departure. Despite being a late flight we were welcomed with a smile not forgetting their gorgeous homemade cheese pies and local greens’ pies all washed down with the family’s own raki! The villa’s own olive oil is also very tasty and a delight. Look out for the fresh bread man and his van at 10:20 you’ll hear him pipping.
The owners were very helpful during our stay but not intrusive and made sure we had an enjoyable stay. We were an extended family of eight and the villa easily accommodated all of us without being in each other’s laps. There were three children in our party and the villa was perfect for their enjoyment (and ours) from the clean swimming pool, swings, basketball net and the wifi connected PC. There are even two bicycles, which we used to ride into the local villages albeit in the relative cool of the morning and evening.
The location is beautiful with fantastic views of Crete’s mountains and interior. The rural location is very relaxing and peaceful but Rethymnon is only about 25 minutes away by car and there’s even a daily bus service! The beach is a similar distance away. The local village is a typical relaxing Cretan agricultural village, we enjoyed walks to and through the village and were invited for drinks in the local café by very generous and welcoming local residents.
To summarise we had a beautiful holiday, the villa was perfect for our every need and the owners made sure we enjoyed our stay and had a truly wonderful time, which we did! We thank them for letting us enjoy and stay in their villa and also for all their hospitality from the olive oil to the lovely gifts at the end of our stay, we hope to see you again soon – the Lewis’, August 2018.
