We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in this wonderful villa. A large group of family and friends from Ireland and the USA (aged between 10 and 55) spent an unforgettable 10 days in this amazing villa. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the manager of the villa Maria who had a glass of wine waiting for us. Maria wanted to make sure we were comfortable and showed us around the large luxurious villa. We were in awe of this beautiful place both inside and out. We had a wonderful view of the sea and and the sun set was speculator. Every second day the cleaners (who were extremely friendly and even baked us a delicious cake) cleaned and kept the villa immaculate. The whole outside which included the pool was maintained to a very high standard. Maria proved to be indispensable to us. She arrived every day with a smile to make sure everything was fine and was available to answer any queries we had. These included recommendations on site seeing, restaurants and activities which she personally even booked for us. We had a bit of an emergency (a very bad case of sunburn) - all we had to do was to call Maria and she arranged for us to visit a doctor which solved the problem. With Maria and her team we always felt safe, secure and totally taken care of at all times. Crete is a beautiful island and has an noncommercial feel to it. One of the highlights of our trip was a visit to another island called Santorini. We were able to take a fast boat to this island for a day. It is certainly well worth a visit. The younger members of our group loved spending time on the sandy warm beaches swimming, playing volleyball and doing other activities. We would highly recommend Crete and certainly this villa as a holiday destination. Thank you so much Maria and of course your staff for a wonderful unforgettable holiday. We would love to return some day!!

Great Villa - Great Service - Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The whole process from booking the villa to arrival was really good, Nikos is very pro active and helped greatly with the transport to the villa.

The villa itself was much nicer than in the pictures, which i didnt think was possible. When we arrived (at 12.30am local time) Maria was waiting for us to run through everything which was great.

The pool area was great for all the family and there were plenty of things for the kids. The BBQ area was nice and was used a few times.

We had a group of 9 adults and 2 children and we had two spare bedrooms for storing things and plenty of space for everyone. As there are two living rooms and kitchens, we had a that bit of privacy as well if needed.

Thanks for a great holiday and im sure we will be back!

The villa was absolutely great. It looks exactly like in the picture and description. The villa, garden and pool where excellent maintaint and cleaned.

We recieved advice from manos and Maria about car hire. Because we arrived late in the evening the Guy from the carhire escorted us from the AirPort to the villa. Maria made dinner for us on the night of arrival, so we could eat immediatly after arrival. Our holiday was great and very relaxing. The only minor thing is that it is just to far from the citycenter to walk. So you need a rental car and / or taxi's to go out and go for groceries.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

We were on Knosses Estate villa for our wedding. Everything was perfect for a group with a todler and an elderly. We immediatly felt welcome the day we arrived, because of the personal contact and the little things left by the owner, like some biscuits. They were perfect after the long travel. Also a compliment for the waterfilter which gave us clean cold and hot water. Further was the cleaning perfect. They came every other day and did everything in the villa. We could use the housephone to call taxi's or dining places. Everyone had an excellent time!

Fantastic villa with great facilities

  • 5 of 5

The villa was beautifully maintained and Maria and Manos did a great job of helping to make our stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. The children loved being able to play in the very safe gardens and play area and the pool was a bit hit - especially the toddler pool!! The villa itself gave plenty of space for three families and several options for dining al fresco. The rooms were comfortable and very clean.

Maria arranged a catered birthday dinner for us during our stay - the food was fantastic and the chocolate cake spectacular!!

The service has continued after we left as my son left a cuddly toy behind and Maria has been in touch to arrange posting bunny home to the UK....

Highly recommended!!

A perfect large group holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

Our high expectations were exceeded on arrival at the Knossos villa especially with the warm welcome and introduction to the villa and what fun things can be experienced in Rethymnon given by Maria and Manos. With a party made up of 2 children under 6 and 10 adults, the villa on two levels accommodated our needs perfectly. The security with cameras and locked gates gave us all peace of mind especially when some of us returned from nights out quite late. It was lovely to have the villa cleaned, bed linen and towels changed every other day when Theana the housekeeper visited as well as Manos coming early most days to check and clean the pool ready for us to have fun and relax around. With wasps and bees enjoying cooling down near the pool, it is a very good idea to keep flip flops on around the pool and on the grass as they sting if they get stood on!! Get out and enjoy how beautiful Crete is as there are some little gems all around and in Rethymnon. You will need a vehicle but if you just want to explore Rethymnon or go to the beach which is amazing, taxis cost about 7€ each way. We couldn't recommend a holiday at Knossos Estate Villa enough and are sure you will be glad you went too.
