If you like sitting watching the sun set over the mountains then this place is perfect - just like the photos. Owner and agent were friendly and helpful. Only niggle was construction work down the hill about half a mile away - I suspect though that we were unlucky to coincide with early drilling and the wind from the north - I doubt this would be a problem next week. We had an excellent holiday. Thanks.

From our first contact with George he was most helpful and gracious when booking and throughout the holiday itself. When Irene met us at the estate on arrival she was also very gracious and such a warm person. The whole team were exceptionally helpful and served with excellence throughout, both in cleaning and maintaining the property and pool, and also there if we needed anything at all. A welcome pack was provided on arrival, which was such a help when you first arrive from a long journey. The accommodation itself was simply outstanding. Beautifully maintained and cared for, excellent facilities, wonderful grounds and set in a peaceful valley of olive groves. Watching buzzards flying overhead, hearing cicadas singing away, soaking up the incredible peace all around, interacting with the dogs and cats/kittens - it was all just amazing. We had a holiday above and beyond what we could have ever expected, and can only thank George and his team for making it such a memorable stay. We'd have stayed forever if we could. Crete is an amazing island with so much to do, beautiful beaches galore, lots of history to soak up and also wonderful restaurants and dining places. George's recommendations were so helpful, and we are just so grateful to him for providing us with the holiday of a lifetime. We cannot fault Vederi Estate in any way. We will miss it, already do, and hope to return. I can thoroughly recommend any and all of the properties, anyone going here for a holiday will not be disappointed - exactly the opposite, they will be surprised and overjoyed.
