About Elisavet Kallitsounaki

My name is Elisavet Kallitsounaki. I have graduated from the University of Piraeus and I am a professional Accountant. I am running my own accounting office in Rethymno, Crete.

I am a mother of two young ladies, Kiki and Eva, and I am married to Mathios.

Why Elisavet Kallitsounaki chose Rethymnon area

The Balsam is a luxury house built in a peaceful area. The biggest advantage of my villa is the fact that, even if it is built in the wonderful Cretan countryside, it is close to everything a customer may need. The closest beach is only 4km away, while the town of Rethymno is 14km away.

What makes this villa unique

Calmness, Privacy, Luxury, Countryside, Close-to-everything location.

Wonderful place to escape every year

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to the villa and we have enjoyed our stay even more. We had a lovely welcome from the owners, who made our stay even more enjoyable. The locals are very friendly and the shops and beaches are not too far away, by car.

A good place to get away from it all, including other tourists. We integrated with the community and had a lovely a peaceful holiday.

An amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa! The perfect base for a holiday in Crete. The villa is amazingly well equipped and is very comfortable. The location is ideal for exploring the island - away from the noise of the city but still accessible The views of the mountains from the terrace are breathtaking. The owners are very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to be flexible for us. The house was cleaned twice a week during our stay. We would definitely recommend this villa as a fantastic holiday home.

Magnificently

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at the villa. We are a big company: 2 families with children. The villa is located in a very beautiful place in the mountains. The house is stylish and comfortable, very clean (maid service twice a week). The hosts are very friendly, attentive and responsive to any requests. They have been doing for us Cretan holiday home cooking with local produce and wines, brought home vegetables.

We have the great pleasure to recommend Villa balm for all those wishing to spend a great vacation in Crete!

Oslon Boris Russian.

notre oasis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de superbes vacances en famille, 3 couples et 2 enfants

villa spacieuse ,comfortable, bien équipée, idèale avec de jeunes enfants qui ont apprécié le jardin du bas où ils ont pu jouer (balancoire , maisonnette )

non loin de là le jardin botanique tenu avec amour par le propriétaire

Le soir (très tard) de notre arrivée nous avons été recu par toute la famille qui nous attendait avec le verre de l'amitié (Raki)

Impression feèerique, toute la villa, jardins, piscine et l'intèrieur meme étaient illuminés, superbe impression !! les enfants étaient émerveillés..

Pendant tout notre sèjour nous avons été très touchés par leur gentillesse et surtout leur discrétion ( nettoyage de la maison fait par une dame on ne peut plus discrète et la prèsence matinale du Mr pour l entretien de la piscine et jardin)

je ne parle pas des petits cadeaux de départ et oeufs et fraises apportés par la grand mère pour mes Petits fils

la villa est bien située 1 h 30 de l'aéroport de Chania, à 15 mm de Rethymnon ( 13 km), avant la ville un super marche ( Atsipopoulo) où l'on trouve tous les produits connus et pour les amateurs de plage de sable fin ( Geranio ( 3 km) avec comfort( bar, resto, petite piscine pour enfants) pour ceux qui ne dèsirent pas se baigner. En un seul mot c'est un oasis à recommander à ceux qui ont besoin de décompresser.

Bon sèjour et profitez bien..
