Pure relaxation...Villa Veni surpassed our expectations in every way.

5 of 5
Villa Veni is without doubt the best place we have stayed during our many holidays in the Greek islands. Being in our later years we always book villas of extremely high standard, Villa Veni surpassed our expectations. Beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Every detail, inside and out, is maintained to the highest standard and the whole villa was immaculately clean. No creepy crawlies and for the first time for us in Greece no mosquitoes! We all slept well from the first night as the villa was so quiet and my pet hate...no cockerels waking me up. The wifi was good for the whole 2 weeks stay. The air conditioning throughout cooled the villa down instantly when needed. The setting is perfect; blissfully peaceful with lovely views, and yet within easy reach of local shops, restaurants and beaches, providing you have a car. Relaxing in the infinity-pool at sunset was sublime. Watching swallows swoop down over the water is the kind of experience holiday memories are made of. The owners, George and Mary Ellen, are truly delightful; genuinely friendly and hospitable, whilst also polite and respectful, making a real difference to the overall holiday experience. We are so pleased we accepted their kind offer of an authentic Cretan evening. We left feeling like we were leaving old friends. The villa is located in a beautiful part of the island. Beaches of all kinds, from large popular stretches of golden sand like Elafonísi to tiny deserted rocky bays with the clearest of water for great snorkelling, are all within easy reach by car. There are also some stunning drives through the nearby mountains and gorges, which are not to be missed. The small local town of Kolymvari (10 minutes drive) has all the necessary shops, supermarkets, and restaurants. We particularly liked Palio Arhintiko where the food and service was excellent. The old-town quarter in Chania (30 minutes drive) is also worth a day's exploring for its many shops, cafes, and restaurants. Villa owner George is only too happy to recommend great places to go and things to see. In all, a place we would fully recommend to you and our friends. We have never gone back to the same place twice as there is so much of the world to see but this is a very special place and we very much hope to visit Villa Veni again.

Villa Katerna is beautiful and ideal for a relaxing holiday. Manolis couldn't have been more helpful and hospitable. Highly recommended.
