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.
We have had a lovely weeks stay at Appartment no’s 8. It is just as described and is beautiful and clean and well equipped. The pool area is great. Really suitable if you have young children. Clean and well maintained and always easy to get a sun bed and umbrella! There is a small shop just outside the complex and other supermarkets in the village (which is a 10 minute walk away). There are lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance and all do good food and drink. I have to admit we didn’t do much sightseeing in the local area as the weather was so beautiful we spent it by the pool and going to a couple of the local (recommended) beaches. We were very lazy!! A good excuse to return and see some sights next time!!
Booking was easy and I got lots of information from the owner before we went.
