Lovely villa, incredible views, wonderful family holiday
We couldn't have been more pleased with the location of this villa. The views are outstanding, especially those of the sunset each evening (although one bedroom balcony has the best view of this), but also its altitude offers lovely gentle breezes which offset the heat beautifully. We thought it was just the right distance away from the nightlife when required (Rethymnon only 10 min's away by car, and parking is so cheap by the marina), and the beach is only a 5 minute drive away. You definitely need a car when staying at this villa as it is located half way up a mountain!
The villa is spotlessly clean and well serviced by maids who clean and change linen every 3 days. The pool and gardens are well maintained by Mr Nikos who is friendly and accommodating, and also brought us a bottle of his home made wine!
We drove to Chania, Kournos Lake and Bali and many other places and all absolutely fell in love with Crete, it is a wonderful island with sunsets to die for - why haven't we heard about this before?!
We would all go back to this villa tomorrow if we could!
Dear Sue, thank you for this amazing review and we would really love to host you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Fantastic villa in an idyllic setting
This villa really lives up to its description and more. From the moment we booked valia has been amazing keeping us informed and offering guidance of things to do when we arrived we were greeted by mr nikos a lovely man he made us feel very welcome The villa itself is wonderful has everything you could wish for, the location is perfect for feeling away from it all but still close enough for evenings out. Thavma up the hill is a must. Waking up to sound of the goats wandering past is something I will treasure a very relaxing sound. Don’t hesitate to book here you will not be disappointed.
Dear Catharine, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Villa! It was our pleasure having you as guests! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Great Location, great host.
Had a lovely stay. The villa was very clean and had all the facilities that we needed.
The host Mr Nikos was excellent and looked after us very well, he was around every day to ensure that the pool was clean and ready for use.
I would recommend this villa to others and if ever back in Crete, would certainly be visiting again.
Dear Dawn , we are truly happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to welcome you "home" again! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
A Perfect Holiday
The views from the villa are even better than shown in the pictures - truly spectacular. The villa itself is well equipped, clean and spacious, with good air conditioning. Our teenage children appreciated the excellent wifi! Its location in the hills above Rethymno means that there is generally a pleasant breeze to reduce the heat. The pool is well kept and regularly cleaned. The garden is lovely with hibiscus, roses and other flowers, with olive trees outside. Although there are two villas on the site, they are around 100 metres apart and each totally private. Both the booking agent Valia and owner Nikos were very helpful and efficient. There is a LIDL supermarket ideally located 10 minutes drive away at the junction with the main road. Nearby Rethymno has excellent beaches and a beautiful old harbour and fortress. Other reviewers have commented on lack of kitchen equipment but we found everything we needed except a pizza cutting wheel; the local supermarket quickly resolved this and we are pleased to report that the villa now has one of these as well! We loved our time at this villa and hope to return.
Dear Peter, thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our Villa soon! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Lovely villa in a secluded quiet spot
Villa was ideal for us. We all were in need of some quiet time and this did the trick. A car is essential as the villa is up a very twisty road.
The villa could have done with more utensils - there wasn't even a jug. We had to go and buy everything for the excellent BBQ. The villa also had no information at all about the local restaurants/ bars/ sights etc - this would have really helped.
We found the restaurants in Platanes to be generally disappointing so spent our evenings in Rethymno, a 10 minute drive away . Loved Chania, a well worth hour's drive.
I'm not sure if we would return to this part of Crete as found the majority of beaches too stony and the sea too dangerous to swim in - again some advice on this would have been useful.
Generally though, had a lovely break.
Dear Patrick, thank you for your kind review and we really appreciate your feedback. We hope to welcome you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Just 15 minutes away from the town of Rethymno lies the historic village of Maroulas. A scenic drive through the olive groves will lead you to the village, which is built on top of a hill at an altitude of 240 meters and has been classified as a preserved and traditional heritage site of great cultural value. For this reason, the construction of new buildings should be carried out with the cooperation of the archaeological department. A restaurant can be found within 500 meters walking distance from the Villas, as well as a long sandy beach, at a distance of 9 minutes away by car.
Shopping facilities for you r everyday need can be found in Platania, such as a bakery, an ATM machine, a petrol station, a pharmacy, as well as well stocked super markets.
The Venetian influence is very obvious in the village, as most of the buildings date back to at least the Venetian era, when two towers, which are still present today, and other buildings with loopholes, were built. The visitor can also admire numerous cisterns, serpentine narrow streets, chimneys and large arched stone doors of Venetian mansions all around the village, as well as an old oil press. In summer you might as well appreciate the rare and unique aroma of herbs and flowers, the sound of the natural spring water and the shadow of the giant plane trees!
Also, worth visiting is the church of Prophet Elias at the top of the hill, which offers panoramic view of the village and the Cretan Sea and gorge. In the village there is a feast in honour of Prophet Elias on the 20th of July.
As you walk around in Maroulas, you travel back in time in times very different from our own and the scenery brings you images of princesses, forbidden loves, white horses and dragons…apart from the dragons, the rest might be true!
