Guestbook comments from the manager

Copied from TripAdvisor:

My girlfriend and I wished get married at a scenic, romantic site in a sunny country and we found this wonderful Villa.

When we booked the villa, we were skeptical as it just seemed to be too perfect - however, when we arrived it turned out to be even more beautiful and perfect than we expected.

We were warmly welcomed by Kostas and family who had been so kind and thoughtful to fill the fridge with various local foods and Raki. They were very helpful during our stay and made it much easier for us to organize our wedding.

The Villa is wonderful, luxurious furnished, kitchenettes in 4 of the bedrooms, and a large and well equipped kitchen in the main room. All rooms are tastefully decorated with candles and paintings, and the outdoor area is truly breathtaking with a spectacular view of the gorge - and even the sea from the end of the pool. You can easily spend a week just enjoying this view!

We highly recommend this villa to everyone who are looking for a private stay in a charming small traditional Greek village - and especially for people like us, who were looking for a beautiful wedding venue.

Villa Antigonia exceeded our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well kept. The owners could not do enough for us. There is the best restetaunt, Cafe Filio which is walking distance from the villa. The drive to the villa is beautiful through many small towns and hills. The beach is 25 minutes away but worth the trip.

We had a wonderful holidays!

  • 4 of 5

Antigoni and Vasilis are very welcoming people. The house ils perfect for 10 people. I think that we were a bit too Manu: 15, and the swimmingpool was a bit too small. The scenery is fantastic and it is very easy to fond everything you need to eat in the small village 3 km from ancient Eleftherna. The place is very calm and the people are so nice. We recommend strongly this place to discover the tresors of Creta.

Feeling at home...in Greece

  • 5 of 5

We visited Crete this summer, we were 9.

We were enthusiastic to rent this villa because of the kindness with which they answered to us, but we were even more delighted at the end of vacation.

Mrs Antigoni is a very nice person. She welcomed our requests with great kindness and availability.

As good Italians we could not do without coffee; when we asked her where to buy a machine able to do it (the villa is situated in the mountains, sorrounded by tiny villages still engaged in traditional activities, you must make a few km to find the grocery store and / or specific retailers), she answered that she would have give it to us the following day.

We thought she had one or knew someone who was using it, instead she brought to us a new machine, including refills and 9 new coffee cups.

Another time she made us prepare from her mother the typical "moussaka", making us eat one of the best Greek typical food. We were utterly surprised and apreciated it.

She is a decent person, but attentive to guest's needs too.

I certainly have a very good memory of the past week there... In fact, if I ever will go back to Crete I won't hesitate to contact her to book the villa again (which with its position, however, is perfect to explore of the sorrounding area by car)!!

Rural Cretan Holiday

  • 5 of 5

A great property in a beautiful location. Well equipped and maintained. The pool was slightly smaller than expected but was great for the children to play about it and for adults to cool off and swim a few strokes. No Taverna in the village, but a good choice in Margarites 10K away - also plenty of ceramic shops and workshops in this town to buy gifts etc. The Museum and acheological dig at Eleftherna should be open soon and is a good place for walks etc. Beaches are acessible by car - about 45 minutes. Only drawback is two bedrooms are acessible only through another bedroom so privacy a bit compromised - OK for a gang of kids or singles. Antigoni and husband were very hospitable and helpful.

Beautiful rural Crete

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location with good, well maintained facilities made for an enjoyable holiday for our large family group.

Antigoni and her husband took good care of us, meeting us and guiding us to the property as we arrived very late on a delayed flight, also extending Cretan hospitality in the form of a lovely home cooked meal on one evening. They advised on local tavernas and shopping.

Eleftherna is situated on the site of extensive Minoian excavations and within easy reach ( by car) of beaches and other historical sites of interest. The nearby villiages of Margarites is the island's ceramic centre and provides an array of handcrafted ceramics to buy. The younger members of the party enjoyed the water park outside Heraklion on one day.

The only drawback to the property is that two of the bedrooms are accessed through another bedroom so privacy can be compromised!

A perfect stay in Kreta!

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as perfect as you can see on the pictures! Everything is new and comfortabel, rooms are big, every room has a bath room - a big group (or some families and friends) finds everything what is needed and more. Because the house is located in a small mountain village it is just no "crazy party location". The taverns around the place were all very good and typical. Small supermarkets are in the next villages. It is really worth to go the way up to the mountains, the atmosphere and the view from there is something particular, we enjoyed it very much! The service is perfect, the owners are always available, helpful and very friendly!! Thanks a lot Antigoni!!!

Antigoni Villa in Eleftherna welcomes you to Crete, offering you unforgettable holidays. In the local area of Rethymno heading towards Mylopotamos region, we reach one of the most historical and important villages of Crete, Eleftherna.

Eleftherna is a village that combines the present with the past. It's a beautiful settlement, where the visitor has the opportunity to admire historical buildings of the past as well as villas that represent contemporary traditional architecture. In the contemporary part of Eleftherna, you can enjoy the very generous nature. A short walk will offer you a great view of cypress trees and endless olive groves. Modern newly built villas with a sweet basil scent and beautiful flowers in their yards make a pleasant contrast, unique for each one who chooses to stay there.

Eleftherna's old buildings and other findings indicate existence of civilization since the ancient times. There are important findings and buildings back from Early and Late Minoan era. The archaeological site and the newly built museum of Ancient Eleftherna are worth a visit for discovering and feeling the ancient history of the area. Pottery items have been found as well as paved Roman roads and structures. There is also a Byzantine church in the region.

In Antigoni Villa you can enjoy the Cretan cuisine, good home-made wine and local 'tsikoudia' combined with Cretan hospitality. We tried to preserve features that comply with Eleftherna's village style.

Eleftherna has been for 30 years one of the most designated areas of 'outstanding natural beauty'.

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
