The Beautiful Villa Victoria
We have had the best time and holiday 2 weeks at Villa Victoria located just outside the beautiful town of Rethymno we are a family of 12 ages ranging from 82 years old to 13 months old the villa was perfect for all our needs plenty of space for everyone, each room with it's own balcony . Garden, bbq area , pool area and jacuzzi are very spacious and beautifully equiped. The only negatives being the 2 bedrooms on the middle floor off the kitchen the mattress are very uncomfortable they are rock hard I did speak to the owner Vicky and called our personal concierge after the first night to let them know and ask could mattress toppers be provided but was told they did not have any which was disapointing for such a highly rated villa. The lovely cleaning lady Marietta came every 2nd day and did a great job leaving everything spotless. There are several options for getting food delivered menus and numbers provided.
The Etouri personal concierge is a huge bonus they are extremely helpful it is a great service. All in all we had an amazing time I would highly recommend this Villa it was a dream location.
A great villa. We loved it. Was perfect for our two weeks in Crete with family and friends.
We loved the villa.
Well equipped throughout. It made our holiday, providing a base for other visiting friends and family who were in Crete to celebrate our wedding.
The pool and spa were excellent and had great views out to sea. We made use of the outdoor covered bbq area.
Master bedroom was massive with separate terrace, walk in wardrobe and on suit. Other bedrooms were also good.
The owner was friendly but gave us our privacy.
We highly recommend. If we can, we will be back...
What a beautiful villa. It is spacious, very clean, well maintained, has everything we could ask for. The villa has lots of different seating areas - around the pool, shady balconies, and the bbq area (where we spent most evenings playing cards). Plenty of space for our 3 generation family party.
The villa owners are responsive, friendly, informative and happy to answer any questions. The customer service was excellent too.
Margarita, the housekeeper, is a marvel! We wanted to take her home.
We would recommend Christo’s ( the village restaurant), Baja beach resort, Kournas lake, the nearby horse riding school and Stelio the chef and his team.
We would all highly recommend this property.
Wonderful spacious fully equipped villa, backed up by very responsive owners to any requests
We were a group of 10 adults who spent a week at this brilliant villa. We made full use of the numerous features including the jacuzzi, gym, pizza oven, pool and fully equipped kitchen. Sometimes more focus should be paid to the response to a problem rather than the problem itself. We had one example of this when the water supply in the area was cut off for 2 days. The owner Kostas reacted by craning in 2 additional 1000 litre tanks onto the roof and plumbed them into the existing tank, ensuring the villa will be fully protected against water supply issues in the future. We were hugely impressed by the owners actions. The villa was cleaned and bedding/towels changed every other day. We preferred not to hire a car, instead used taxi’s and hired a quad bike for trips to the local mini market. We used the near by tennis courts (bring your own rackets & balls). We have very fond memories of our stay at Villa Victoria and fully recommend it. Regards Patrick
Amazing property, better than expected
After viewing the video and seeing all of the pictures, our expectations were pretty high, and I would say that for the most part, they were exceeded. The Villa is immaculate, and the service is exceptional. We stayed with four other couples and there was more than enough room for everyone. The villa is really beautiful, and full stocked, including a very generous amount of welcome food, anything we would need for breakfast, snacks, etc on our first day. What we didn't anticipate was the beautiful orchard and the ability to eat fresh peaches each day. Over the course of the week, with everybody coming and going in different directions, I'm sure that other than the playground, every amenity was enjoyed. Vicky is such a gracious hostess, really enjoyed visiting with her, and the on call staff were very helpful. At one point ants were discovered in one of the main level bedrooms, and someone was sent right away to give us spray, and the owner arranged for the perimeter for the villa to be sprayed asap. The only concerns that our companions had were that the main level beds(in both rooms) were very uncomfortable for them and 3 of the 5 rooms were much smaller than portrayed in the pictures. I don't believe this would be an issue at all for families, however, when adults are splitting the price, it is a bit disappointing for a few. Additionally, some of us arrived at night, and even with the GPS, the signs to the villa are not easily seen because of the lack of streetlights. It was very difficult to find, and one of our companions needed to come and find us to guide us in. Maybe reflective paint on the sign would help? Overall, however, I would stay here again in a heartbeat! The location on the island is perfect to explore anywhere, the villa is outstanding the service was really exceptional. Thank you to the owners and staff.
We had an amazing holiday (3 weeks, family, 6 pers.) in this wonderful Villa Viktoria. The house was in excellent condition, very clean, modern and functional. We loved the peace and privacy and the kids the pool. The warmly owner Vicki and Kostas have helped us with all things, even a warm welcome meal. We recommend the villa without restrictions. Also the agency Etouri has contributed to a great vacation. Many Thanks!!
The villa is located on the outskirts of Rethymno town in a totally private area, near the small village of Gallos and the University of Crete.
The surrounding area is rural and peaceful. Situated next to a small gorge it is often possible to sight wild birds such as eagles which glide through the gorge and pheasants that wander in the nearby fields. This is what makes Villa Victoria special and even though the town is close by you will rest peacefully and still feel “away from it all”!
A stroll or a jog along your own private lane and the neighbouring roads are a great way to start your day and with such beautiful surroundings you are sure to refresh and re-energise. Just a little further on it is possible to reach the old part of Gallos village and experience its rustic charm. The newer part of Gallos hosts 2 mini markets and a great traditional tavern. Also, an organized tennis court is located just 600 meters away. More shops, seafront restaurants and supermarkets are only a couple of minutes away by car (3 km) in the Koumpes area at the entrance of Rethymno town. Koumpes also has the closest sandy beach to the villa, however the more organized cosmopolitan beach of Rethymno is only 5 km away.
Furthermore, the villas location provides a great base for making excursions around Crete as the main national road is only a few minutes away.
Staying at our villa will give you the advantage of relaxing in a quiet private area while literally being close to everything, a perfect choice for all the family!
