Beautiful villa with lovely views. Everything you Could possibly need is provided including enough cold water on tap for fortnight. Evmorfia from muses could not be more helpful spending time pointing out best beaches and restaurants to visit. Villa owner kindly purchased slider and bike for our 2 year old granddaughter and brought cakes and pastries on several morning's. We cannot fault villa at all took advantage of the outside kitchen and barbeque on several occasions. Rethymnon 5 mins away by car very lively with good restaurants. Would love to come back one day.
Our Family of 4 had a very relaxing 10 day stay at the Villa. Maid Service was excellent and friendly. The views are stunning and the outside area surrounding the villa is what sets this property apart. Car hire was going to cost between 30 -35 Euros per day and a Taxi Transfer to Rethymno takes about 10 mins and costs 30 Euros return. We decided not to hire car as it costs about the same as taxis and we could all enjoy a drink and not worry about driving. We just stocked up on supplies before getting the taxi back at night. That said we were the only family without a car in comparison with all the families staying at the other 3 villas. I think most people would recommend having a car, but its a personal choice.
You must visit the Taverna Katerina in the village. The host called Vilades is a true character, the views are wonderful and the food is great. The village is like stepping back in time and is very quite, but has a special feel to it. You get a true taste of the real Greece far removed from the tourist trail. Everybody is so very friendly.
The WI-FI is OK but our Kids 16 & 14 didnt think it was consistent and didnt extend to the upstair bedrooms. Not a huge deal though.
I would recommend Agni Travel and also this Villa, if you want a relaxing holiday round the pool.
