Villa Helios proved to be a good choice as it is in the middle of beautiful countryside with every kind of ramble literally on the doorstep. The house has more space than we imagined and very well laid out. Views towards the White Mountains from the upstairs bedrooms are truly spectacular. We especially liked the colourful mediterrainean plants and shrubs growing around the house. Although just two of us this time, I can imagine it would be an excellent base for family holidays. Very good value, the owner (John) is a pleasure to deal with and responded to my questions very quickly. Will be returning with more friends sometime soon.

Favorite of ours - bedroom balcony overlooking Souda Bay in the distance. Property very clean, starter pack in fridge much appreciated and all there that you needed. Wifi was a bonus, books and games on the side welcome entertainment for evenings. Walked down to village to eat at Takis Restaurant frequently - steep short-cut leads down to village (just behind garden). Supermarket nearby, bar and other restaurants in village or further down the hill in Almyrida. We would recommend property to small group of friends (4) or small family for a quiet holiday in lovely surrounding. Rental Car a must.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      When we first arrived at the location of the villa, I was a little worried as it at the back of a main road and in a part of Rethymnon that is being done up. However once you enter the villa from the back on the garden (which is modern and well maintained with plenty of loungers and seating) you realise that you are staying in your own little piece of modern luxury. Spacious, open and with all the facilities you will need it made our holiday special. The owner is so welcoming and helpful with advice, numbers and recommendations (and not to forget) the welcome pack she provided made you feel at home. The view across the sea that stretches across the North coastline of the island put smiles on our faces every day and night. The walk into rethymnon is a bit longer than what is stated I would say 20 mins to reach the outskirts and another 10-15 to reach the centre. But if you dont mind the walk it can be lovely if you take the coastline. Make sure you visit the Restaurant Prima Plora which is a 5-10 mins walk from the villa (turn right as you come out of the villa) the views, food and service are so good. The old fort is amazing to see and is huge! Lots of good bars and restaurants in rethymnon itself spoilt for selection. The beach outside the villa is a bit of a let down if you were expecting sand. However the beach bar (out of the villa turn left 2 mins away) just up from the villa is worth the visit. All the people we came across were incredibly friendly. We also visited king minos palace which is good if you don't mind a drive and are into greek mythology. Oh and on a final note the cab firm that Valia works with Cretan taxi, are amazing lovely drivers, water and internet in the cars and very helpful. All in all a wonderful stay. Would highly recommend this villa and part of crete to everyone.
