About Peter & Linda Monkhouse

We fell in love with Crete on vacation here in 2007 and decided this was where we wanted to retire. We built 2 Villas close to a small village called Kambia, and now live in the Villa next door to our rental Villa. We are available at any time to help, and are only too happy to provide information on the local area, we can also help arrange for local car rental.

Peter & Linda Monkhouse purchased this villa in 2014

Why Peter & Linda Monkhouse chose Chania area

Villa Rhea July 2016

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the best Villas we've ever stayed in. Attention to detail in the structure of the building and to the smallest detail is perfect.

The pool and the views are a perfect way to start and finish your day and in fact welcome at any time. The pictures on this site do not do it justice and can not capture the panoramic beauty or the magnificent sunsets

Peter and Linda are the perfect hosts without being intrusive. Nothing was too much trouble and our comfort always took priority.

Their knowledge of the local area and people is very useful and we had an extremely enjoyable holiday based on this.

The area is ideally suited for both a relaxing and adventurous trip, depending on what you desire. You do need a car though !

The local people are very friendly and welcoming, and again are very helpful.

The local tavernas serve really good food, and Dourakis, the nearby winery is a must. We had a very personalised and friendly tour with just four of us. The wine tasting was well worth the visit and it didn't cost much either.

We toured quite a bit of the Island, but couldn't wait to get back to that pool and the spacious villa.

We never go back to the same place twice but I think that will now be a habit we change. All being well we would like to return next year..

All in all a fantastic holiday in an exceptional villa in an ideal location

Beautiful hillside villa… spectacular sea and mountain views… infinity pool

  • 5 of 5

In a sensational spot slightly out of the small village of Kampia (so feels nicely isolated), the modern stone-built villa is stylish, well-equipped and furnished in a comfortable fashion. The owners are affable and accommodating, but at the same time unobtrusive. The gorgeous infinity pool, with fantastic views, is great for a relaxing dip (we loved having a pool to ourselves), and children will love the games area. There are tiled floors, two impeccable shower rooms, TVs, terraces. There is internet too, if you fancy talking to the wider world.

There are two upstairs bedrooms, and in the downstairs den there’s a sofa bed.

For provisions there are small shops just a few minutes away by car, together with a number of tavernas with traditional cooking run by hospitable locals. The friendly beach resort of Almirida is about a 10-minute drive from the villa, downhill all the way!

Conceived by an inspired architect, Villa Rhea is a characterful and very charming retreat, and the surrounding area is very lovely.

Highly recomended.

A beautiful villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Rhea is presented to the highest of standards - a real home from home. It has everything you could want from a holiday property and benefits from stunning views over the mountains and down towards Souda Bay. The villa is set in the most serene countryside with the only noise coming from the chicadas! However, the pretty little village of Plaka is only a few minutes drive away while the busier resort of Almyrida with plenty of restaurants is about 15 minutes down the road. Linda and Peter were always on hand to help and advise but never imposed themselves on us, so while their home adjoins the villa, you'd never know they were there unless you needed them. Overall, one of the best properties we've stayed in abroad with a view you will never tire of looking at! Highly recommended.

Wonderful, relaxing villa in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

(Submitting again as previous review didn't go through.) We found the villa to be even better than the photos and description show. It was very well furnished throughout and the views were stunning. The sunrises and sunsets were particularly spectacular. The property was very clean and very well maintained. Peter and Linda were very friendly and helpful and sorted out a couple of maintenance issues as soon as we mentioned them. We loved Chania - the shopping was great and the harbour was lovely. We enjoyed a horse drawn carriage ride through the town. The beach at Almyrida was nice too. Our whole family agreed it was the best holiday we had been on together. We will be back!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

It really doesn't happen that often that the actual reality would surpass the expectations originally created from the pictures presented in the offering. Yet in this case, hands down, Linda and Peter have made it! Their brand new house located in the hills far enough but still close to civilization is furnished with style and provides a great amount of comfort and privacy. And the pool - boy, the kids loved it so much no matter if it was day or night. Overall, we had a fantastic stay and, despite we typically don't visit the same spot twice, we all agreed on the way back home that we'd love to come back here again sometime. So, many thanks to Peter and Linda again for their hospitality! Jan, Markéta and the kids
