Perfect villa for a peaceful / adventurous break

5 of 5
Super villa with STUNNING views and everything you need for your holiday. The villa is impeccably clean and just as it appears in the photos. Valia from think villa.com and Eleanna, the villa owner, were both lovely people to deal with. Excellent location just outside the pretty little village of Sellia. We ventured far as we had a car but learnt that we need not have as everything for a perfect holiday can be found in the Rethymnon area. Every meal we ate was fantastic and very reasonably priced even in the more touristy areas. My personal highlights were shopping for souvenirs in the old town at Rethymnon followed by lunch at Avli restaurant, lazing on the local beach at Rodakino and climbing the rocks and splashing out on hiring a small boat for the day from Hora Sfakion and visiting Louthra, Samari gorge and small coves. £120, no licence required - worth every penny for the experience. Enjoy!

beautiful villa with the best hostess

5 of 5
Hi Amalia and your beautiful family! Sorry that we haven't written a review , we thought we hade done that , and now when we were looking for dates to book this summer did we see that we haven't written. The house is so beautiful, perfect and really secluded. The hostess came every morning before we woke up and cleaned the pool, and gave us vegetables every morning. The pool is perfect, and the people in the small village is very nice. We are so sad, we wanted to come back this summer, but the villa is booked the hole summer. We hade such a great time with you, and it felt like you where our family. We was the first guest ever in the house, and you toke good care of us, and we love you for that. The children don't won't to go anywhere else , the want to go back to Amalia they say, maybe we see you next summer, 2018. thank you for everything.
