                                                                                                I always think it is useful to read other peoples experiences of visits when making my villa selections so wanted to share mine. As is usual it is the small things that make a difference and Kostas was a fantastic host. I think it would be impossible not get on with him and his assistance to showing around on arrival, making sure cleaning was done thoroughly as well as great advice on places to visit was invaluable! The villa itself was beautiful, all facilities were of excellent quality and the pool was the largest one I have seen for these types of villa. The area on the coast towards Rethymon had most of the bars, restaurants and shops needed. It was nice to be able to get to Heraklon, Chania and the south coast from here, especially as a narrow part of the island to cross. I would in addition recommend Bestcars, who we were given the contact via the villa booking and the service from them was faultless with delivery at the airport, great little open top car too! I would easily recommend this villa and when visiting Crete again would have no hesitation in staying here again, thanks, Pete

Indeed they are! We all had a wonderful week in this luxurious villa, celebrating a 50th birthday as a highlight during our stay. Thanks to the property owner Loukia, who organised a special surprise for the jubilant with a cake and local musicians to play for us, we had the most memorable day. We can just recommend this place to groups who are looking for a more unique experience during their stay in Crete, away from the hustle and bustle of hotels. This location of the place made us feel that we were further away from the touristy atmosphere, and offered a tranquility that was invaluable to us. We definitely would like to come back to visit again.

You are at 5 minutes by car to the lovely town of Rethymon, and 1 hour to the Heraklion Airport. You can find all the amenities for your stay near the Radamanthy's hotel. You can rent a car and discover all the beauty of Crete ; Balos beach, Elafonissi, Falassarna, Xania ....just amazing ! I recommand this location, you'll not be dissapointed !! Thanks to Valia and all the team of the Radamanthy's hotel for their hospitality ...don't forget to take a gps and the "Routard book" and have a great holidays ! M Vignollet
