Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We had high expectations based on the pictures of the villa, and we were surprised to have them surpassed when we arrived. The house is extremely spacious, decorated beautifully, clean, and in excellent condition. I had the feeling that I was staying in someone's well-loved home, not a vacation rental. This made our visit special, as I felt like I was living in a real Greek home. Alex kindly supplied us with some food, water, and a home-made casserole at our arrival.

The outside areas and view were amazing, with so many places to sit and enjoy the view, shade or sunshine, depending on your mood. The views of the mountains and water were gorgeous, and it was so nice to have a pool. Many evenings we enjoyed the sunset over the mountains and water. Our daughters enjoyed the six kitties that visited every day, and we kept our eyes out for goats and sheep passing through the nearby fields.

The beds were very firm, but I discovered that a firm mattress was very good for my back, so it wasn't a problem for me at least, although my daughters wanted them to be more squishy.

One of the best beaches that we found on Crete is less than 10 minutes from the house, and there is a grocery store and ATM close by too. Be sure to visit Lake Kournas for paddle boating. Instead of the Samaria Gorge, we hiked St. Anthony's gorge and were thrilled with the experience. Have fun in Crete!

Beautiful villa with amazing views and stunning pool area

  • 4 of 5

Alex's villa is a stunning house set on a hillside overlooking mountains and a wide bay stretching as far as Chania penninsula. It's huge living room and spacious pool area has beautiful views from every angle. The villa is in a great peaceful location, on its own large piece of land about 20 mins drive from the fantastic town of Rethymno and 5 mins to the village of Episcopi where there's some good local and amazing value tavernas', a bakery / cafe and decent supermarket.

Alex the owner is on hand living discretely next door and brought us Raki and tomatoes and was an excellent and attentive host!

All in all we loved our stay! You need a car for sure.

Wunderschöne Villa mit toller Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Es war der erholsamste Urlaub- ever. Wir hatten 2 wunderschöne und relaxte Wochen in der Villa von Alex. Er ist der Vermieter und betreute uns ausgesprochen gut in dieser Zeit. Die Villa ist sehr schön eingerichtet, die Bäder toll und man fühlte sich sehr wohl. Der Blick auf das Meer ist atemberaubend und ein Katzensprung zum Strand. Dieser war selbst in der Hochsaison nicht überfüllt und hauptsächlich von Einheimischen besucht. Alex gab uns auch einen tollen Tipp für ein außergewöhnliches Restaurant in Episkopi. Das muss man erlebt haben...ansonsten verlebten wir die Tage am Pool mit vielen Büchern. Es gab keinen deutschen Kanal, was dazu führte, dass wir die Kids nicht davor rumhingen, was auch super war. Internet war auch ein bisschen schwierig, aber am Strand gibt es ja Free-Wifi...

Alex wohnt mit seiner Familie auf der anderen Seite des Hauses und die Wohnung liegt unterhalb. Man bekommt hiervon nichts mit. Am Abreisetag hatten wir noch jede Menge Zeit und wurden von Alex Mutter bekocht. Also alles in allem ein wunderschöner Urlaub

Wir waren drei Paare und leider nur eine Woche in der Villa, denn wir waren alle begeistert! Das Haus ist sehr groß und liebevoll mit antiken Möbeln ausgestattet. Schon bei der Ankunft waren wir beeindruckt von den hohen Decken ganz aus Holz, die, neben der imposanten Höhe, den Räumen auch noch einen wunderbaren Geruch geben. Die beiden Bäder sind modern und schön gestaltet, sogar Zahnbürsten, kleine Seifen und liebevoll dekorierte Handtücher liegen bereit. Man fühlt sich sofort willkommen. Der Pool und die Terassen sind genauso mit Liebe zum Detail gestaltet! Herrlich! Das Haus liegt auf einer Anhöhe, es ist wunderbar ruhig und man hat einen tollen Blick auf das Meer. Der Hausbesitzer Alex wohnt mit seiner Familie in einem getrennten Bereich im unteren Teil des Hauses und ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Er hat uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite gestanden. Vielen, vielen Dank dafür und herzliche Grüße! Es war eine tolle Woche und wir kommen wieder.

В этом доме очень красиво и внутри , и вокруг

  • 5 of 5

Нам кажется, что в прохладное время года нужно доставлять в дом сухие дрова , чтобы топить камин. Тааерна , которую нам посоветовал хозяин Алекс была изумительна. Спасибо за отдых !

Episkopi is a small town near to the city of Rethimno, overlooking the northern coast of Crete, and the green and fertile valley of Mousselas river. Episkopi is the administrative and commercial centre of the area, providing quite a few facilities such as tavernas, supermarkets, a bakery, an ATM machine, a post office, as well as a fish shop and a butchery.

The homonym beach Episkopi is located really close, just 5 minutes away by car, in a fertile valley with lowlands. It is a long beach, which is sandy and shallow, like most beaches of Northern Crete. It is very well organised, since there are many hotels, restaurants, taverns, bars and all the amenities one could need. In the western part of the beach you can find places with lifeguards, showers, changing rooms, umbrellas, snack bars, water sports, etc., perfect for children. However, given its large size, you can certainly find a quiet spot, especially in the eastern part. Lastly, at the beginning of the beach on the east side there is an opportunity for naturism.

Then you could visit the neighbouring village of Argiroupolis, with its springs and lush vegetation…a taste of Cretan paradise, breathtaking view for your eyes, calming water sounds from waterfalls for your ears and divine taste for your mouth!

Moreover, Lake Kournas is also located in close proximity. A beautiful freshwater lake in the midst of a mountain backdrop, you can sunbathe around the lake, there are sun beds, or if you prefer, go swimming in the lake, hire a pedalo (it takes about an hour to get all around the lake) or enjoy a meal in one of the plenty restaurants around the lake. Also, a tennis court could be found in Kournas area.

Furthermore, Petres beach is located at the eastern end of the vast beachfront of Episkopi It is named after the imposing Petres Gorge that finishes here. All around there are some facilities such as, restaurants, a diving school, etc. In the main cove of Vythos, which lies north of the others, there are umbrellas and it is less sandy. The rocky seabed is ideal for fishing and snorkelling.
