Die Einrichtung entsprach der Beschreibung voll und ganz. Alles war sauber, die Betten sehr bequem. Die Dachterrasse wurde unser Lieblingsplatz. Pool war perfekt und wurde laufend gereinigt. Einzig ein Auto ist notwendig. Wir werden gerne wieder kommen

We cannot compliment the owners enough with their kind gifts of local produce. The villa was just a short drive to the town and beaches. Some lovely restaurants in the surrounding area. We thoroughly recommend the villa and will hopefully return one day.

                                                                                                      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.
