About Emmanuel S.
Hi, i am Emmanuel! I have grown up & lived in sunny Crete with a flair for travel, gastronomy and books- I love Crete. It's a fantastic island... vibrant or tranquil depending on your mood. Originally a teacher, that's what I've been studying in the university. Although as a lover of personal contact and willing to highlight the gifts of Cretan land, hospitality management is my new passion: I enjoy both. My priority is to help you get the most out of your visit to this great island that I live in, know and love. I will be there whenever you need me to provide you with maps, directions or to suggest you places, restaurants and attractions that worth to visit. I hope you will enjoy the experience - I know I'm biased, but I think you will. I would like you to feel very welcome and hope you enjoy all that Crete has to offer.
Emmanuel S. purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Emmanuel S. chose Skouloufia
A family run bussines which was built in 2014 with a purpose to achieve modern comfort, high hospitality services, high value for your money. The past two years our guests loved the property, the location and the island at the same time. T he property is placed in a hill so privacy, panoramic sea/mountain/valley views and great sunsets are only some of the key points worth to visit. Meanwhile, there are many market spots and restaurants/local taverns really close, so you can have everything you need. In conclusion, from Villa's focal position you can reach to highway within some minutes and explore crete's all must-see sightseeings and beaches. We go on with the hard work to make sure that you will be enjoying the best possible holiday experience for long time in the future.

Clean, Private, Updated, and Beautiful! We had an awesome time! Owners were spectacular!
We had the privilege of staying at Villa Horizon for 5 nights. We had a fantastic time! The villa is very clean and updated. It is in a very private location which worked out great for us as we are a family of three with a toddler. This house also has phenomenal views and is pretty central to anything around Rethymnon!
Emmanuel was awesome. When we arrived they had a variety of fresh produce, wine, and home made goods for us which was all delicious! She even dropped off another home cooked meal on our last night which was phenomenal and we had it for dinner that night. Truly wonderful hosts who made the stay all that more magical.
Thanks Emmanuel, we had a phenomenal time and hope to visit again someday soon!
Villa horizon is a wonderful secluded villa with stunning views. The family went out of their way to make us welcome and even brought us special home cooked food! This is a perfect base for exploring the less spoilt side of crete with beautiful beaches 15 minutes away and the lovely old town of Rethymno just down the road. I can not recommend it warmly enough!
The best place for our Family Holidays
We have spent a lovely holiday at the Villa. The place was better than what we had seen in the photos. Very friendly and caring owners details.
We recommend it to our friends and anyone wanting a unforgettable vacation. We enjoyed the pool, the garden, the landscape.
The house is very comfortable. Well equipped . Suitable bathrooms and excellent beds. Recommended for a large family like ours with small children.
Thank you for your kind review and for praising the property and us,the owners. Thank you for being our guest and thank you for sharing your positive experience of Villa Horizon.

Great location, excellent welcome, fantastic view !
Wow! Villa Horizon is truly a five star Villa!
To our most amazing hosts, Dina, Zaharias and Emmanuel,
We have had the most wonderful relaxing stay at your beautiful villa. It has been a home away from home. Your generosity was overwhelmingly warm and genuine. You made us feel like part of your family.
We were met halfway down the valley so they could guide us there without getting lost as i am certain we we would have now that we have been diving around this area. Upon our arrival we were shown around the villa and the pictures were as true as the real real thing. A very refreshing element as most accommondation can be rather deceptive in their description of facilities ( something we have had first hand knowledge in this trip to Greece). Dina your food was absolutely delicious, we enjoyed it on that first day for our lunch and the boys had it for breakfast the next day. A good time we had by all, tasting Zaharia's wines and raki and even some Cretan dancing.
The villa was perfect for the six of us, plenty of space for everyone to have their own area to chill out. We relaxed in the shade of the olivetree in the afternoon whilst watching the boys playing in the pool. Sat on the terrace watching the sheep ramble up the hill and enjoying the magnificent view to the sea. The rooms were spacious and well appointed, the kitchen had all the amenities needed. The barbecue area was fantastic to have a little social gathering which we did with the hosts. Our own garden to pick vegetables and herbs from, organic eggs from Dina's chickens. Villa Horizon is truly a five star Villa.
Thank you so much for your warmth, kindness, generosity and most of all your friendship. We hope to return to Crete one day and back to our villa we call home!!!
Yiassias and filakia,
Garry, Ghyl, Theo, Seb,Yol and Peter
