Guestbook comments from the manager

The "Dream Villas" are the place to be in Crete!!!

We had a great time with Valia and the Owners of the Villa. Firstly Valia organized everything without any problems and we could call her any time if we would have any problems. Thank you Valia, we really were in good hands. Secondly the owners of the Villa are the most friendly and helpfully people we've met. They were so bothered to keep us our privacy and let us feel comfortable, we even didn't wanted to leave this place.

The Villa is beautiful and big and the garden with your private pool is even bigger. So we also enjoyed a lot to stay at home. Everyday we started the day with this awesome view you have from each balcony at the villa.

We can recommend this place and for us it was one of the greatest time we could have. And this is not only because the island is great, but also because we had the best place to stay!

Thank you so much for all your effort and giving us the best holidays we could have!

The best place we have stayed for along time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and very stress free stay in Villa Anemone; the owners are increadably helpful and keep the villas and their lovely gardens impecably neat. They welcomed us with lovely and useful gifts including feta, olives and wine. The kitchen is great and well supplied with utencils, pans etc. Loads of towels and and even a robe!

Although we went off exploring many days just staying by the pool with the beautiful hills around you was fantastic (loungers, umbrellas and side tables are all there) and the barbecue is a bonus.

The village of Bali (15 minutes walk) is modern but has nice bars and restaurants and the beaches and water are clean and good for snorkling. Further affield the main road is close enough to give good access to Iraklion and Hania as well as routes via that to the south.

The villa has the benefit of being well connected with a good village close but still feeling that it is in the hills and not in a town.

We had a wonderful holiday and would love to go again in the future.

Perfect holiday choice

  • 5 of 5

Villa orchedia more than matched our expectations good views and facilities a real home from home Roula and her family made us feel really welcome even bringing us produce from their garden and home made desserts but without being intrusive.The villa was cleaned every three days with towels changed.You definitely need a car to make the most of your stay as the villa is around one mile from Bali itself but if you have too many rakis a taxi home is 6euros and the tavernas will call one for you.Bali itself is a good mix of tourists and locals with a really pleasant atmosphere and a wide selection of tavernas reasonable priced.All in all the villa is a great base to explore Crete or just sit by the pool and chill

Fantastic week in a fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish we had a lovely holiday at this villa, travelling with our 5 month old son.

The owners and manager were brilliant - from dealing with enquiries before travel, to meeting us on arrival, cleaning during our stay and coming to say goodbye when we left.

The villa itself was immaculate - every bit as good as the photos, and had everything we needed during our stay. And the garden and pool were well maintained and perfect for relaxing in.

We had a hire car and I think you definitely need one - it is quite a steep walk down into Bali, and I definitely wouldn't want to walk back up in the dark.

I'd absolutely recommend this villa to any couples or anyone travelling with a young child.

This is a lovely property to stay in if you want to get away from it all. You can lie in the little pool and be surrounded by the most stunning mountains and the only sound you will hear is the bells of the sheep and goats on the hillside.

The villa was immaculately clean, very comfortable and spacious with a large beautifully kept garden.

A car is essential, there are local shops and cafes / restaurants at the bottom of the hill. We enjoyed the beach at Rethymnon where there are also plenty tourist shops for souvenirs. We took an afternoon drive into the mountains which was stunning.

Rula and her family made us very welcome, staying up late to meet us after a late arrival flight. They were available for us but we're not intrusive. We certainly look forward to returning.

Peaceful location, beautifully kept, recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This is the nicest villa we have ever stayed in. Very peaceful with views down to the sea and surrounded by mountains. Inside it is very well equipped and kept beautifully clean (it is cleaned every 3 days including replacement sheets, towels, robes etc). The welcome pack was one of the best we have had (wine, raki, fruit, cheese, breads, milk, honey, jam, sugar, tea, coffee) as well as providing all the things that are so annoying not to have (washing up liquid, toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets and washing machine liquid). The hosts are very welcoming and gave us some of their homegrown tomatoes part way through our stay and a traditional cretan dessert. We stayed for 16 days and loved every second. We walked to the village for a few of our evening meals- it's about 20 minutes downhill into the main part of town - and chose to walk back as the stars were breathtaking. You could also grab a taxi back or take the little train to the edge of town and then walk the last kilometre. As the villa was so well equipped we often ate lunch at a taverna on our travels around and then stayed in to eat on the terrace enjoying the views in the evening. There is a lovely little bakery on the far side of town that does delicious desserts. There is a "supermarket" with a good selection of items just as you get into town and you can park near it. I put the term supermarket in brackets as all shops seem to call themselves this - expect something the size of a corner shop or tesco local. There are bigger shops in Rethymnon but they aren't essential. We visited Karavostasis beach in Bali (again by car- the little train also goes here) for some great snorkelling- the sea around Bali is so clear!- but preferred the beach at Geropotamos along the coast as it is less crowded and still has gorgeous clear water (still with a taverna, sunbeds and loungers but lots more space and room to spread a towel down if you prefer. Easy parking under the bridge). There is lots to see and do in this area everything from caves with stalactites and stalagmites (Melidoni and Sfentoni caves), cool, green gorge walking at Mili, minoan sites, the pottery village at Margarites, the monastery at Arkadi to name a few. It's worth having a car to see as much as possible. I would make it a small car as the entrance to the villas and many roads are also small. We had a wonderful time lazing by the pool (this is cleaned everyday)- just a perfect stay. I would definitely recommend here.

Bali was a small fishing village, but over the years has become a charming touring village, overlooking the little fishing harbour and the sea. It is a very attractive and romantic place, combining sea and mountains. Life is easy going enjoying the sun and the clear calm sea at a number of sandy and shingly beaches. Bali is a modern seaside resort, which offers a large choice of taverns and restaurants and a wide variety of little shops, diving school, bars, discos clinic and pharmacy. 

Bali is located in a large gulf, 25 Kms east of Rethymno and 40 Km west of Heraklion. Next to the village passes the National Road linking Heraklion and Rethymno, making Bali accessible from any part of the island. It is ideal for family and romantic holidays. Bali has four beaches, which are formed in sandy coves with nice greenish waters. The beaches are almost always calm, since the direction of Bali is western. They all are suitable for children and well organised. Moreover, buses from Heraklion and Rethymnon run to Bali.  Furthermore, from the local harbour, excursion boats run daily to Rethymnon. The passengers have the chance to admire a unique coastline with beautiful caves and rock formations.

Livadi is the first beach you come across as you enter the village and is the largest in the region. It is formed in an open bay, which is more susceptible to winds than the other three. It is very well organised and always crowded. At the east end of Livadi, there are the two separate small beaches of Kouskouras, which are not organised and are never busy. They cannot be accessed from Livadi, but there is a footpath leading to Kouskouras 100m west of Livadi. Continuing, in front of the village centre, there is the enclosed bay of Varkotopos with a beautiful beach with sand and gravel in front, which is very well organised. It is ideal for young children, since the waters are shallow and all the necessary amenities are nearby. Further north, you reach the picturesque port of Bali, which is next to a clean beach. Limani, as it is called, is organised and close to many restaurants and shops. Finally, Karavostasis is the last beach you meet. It is the most beautiful beach of the area. It is much smaller than the other bays, although ideal for snorkelling lovers!
