Welcome to Crete!
This is a lovely house, located near Pigi village, a quiet and wonderful place for your summer holiday! It's really close to fun activities and offers easy access to many interesting sights! A bus stop is also 500 meters away from the house!
This amazing house features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a great garden with flowers and lawn, a private pool, barbecue grill, outdoor dining and siting areas and it's within walking distance from a mini market, cafe and restaurant!
We loved our stayed at Mary's house in Pigi, the villa is around 500m from the small traditional village of Pigi, where there is a taverna, butchers shop, mini-market, pharmacy and a lovely family run restaurant - we would recommend eating here.
The villa is well looked after and clean, it's got lots of outdoor space to enjoy the hot sunny days and the pool is ideal for cooling off when needed.
A car is needed if you wanted to venture out on the many day trips available in the surrounding areas.
We (a mixed group of 6 people between the age of 25-60) spent two weeks in the lovely house up in the mountains. We arrived quite late in the night and were starving, so it was a really pleasant surprise when we were welcomed by a hot dinner and all essentials for next day's breakfast. The house was in a very good condition, clean and nicely decorated. Only when we had a day full of heavy rain, the roof appeared to have some minor cracks and it started dripping from the ceiling in the kitchen and the living room. However, since those were news for the owners, I assume it will be taken care of soon. Whenever something else came up, even if it were only questions about our next sightseeing trips, we got help immediately. Thanks again for that!
The house isn't far away from the village center with some small shops and a pharmacy and it takes you about 5 minutes by car to get to the closest beach (sandy). The location itself is perfect for exploring many parts of the island, even though you shouldn't try to explore everything as you will spent too much time in the car then ;)
One last warning: some of us found the mattresses a little bit too hard, but I guess that is a matter of taste.
Arrived to smell of a delicious home cooked meal with fruit, salad wine and chocolates. Villa is beautiful clean and very peaceful. We had a wonderful relaxing time there and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
A wonderful property, so spacious, so clean and the welcome from Maria, we were delighted with our stay. Arriving late at night the aroma of home cooked food from the kitchen was such a surprise for us, thank you. The selection of food, fresh fruit and veg, even the fridge was stocked. The location was ideal for exploring Rethymno, Kinossos and even Preveli Beach. Everyone we met were so friendly and helpful. A beautiful part of the world!
Our stay at the villa was unforgettable ! Everything was perfect in the house and the owner was very nice during all our stay. The house is very clean, big and so beautiful !
The only drawback was the distance to go to the beach where we could only go by car.
I look forward to return one day in this beautiful house !
We really enjoyed our trip to Crete and the house we rented exceeded all our expectations. It was clean and very wellmaintained. The owner was very friendly and we got a very nice welcome.We really recommend the property to friends and acquaintances who intend to travel to Crete.
Mary's House is located on the road to the village of Aghios Dimitrios ( 500 meters from Pigi Village) in a peaceful and beautiful countryside area.
Rethymno with it's pretty, often vibrant Venetian port and old town is approx 12km away; offering bus services to Heraklion / Knossos, Chania, Samaria gorge, all roughly an hour away. Lake Kourna is about 20 minutes away and is well worth a visit. Arkadi monastery, well known for it's history is a short drive away.
Shopping facilities for everyday's necessities can be found at the neighboring village of Pigi at a walking distance of 400 meter providing butcher, baker and a grocery shop, mini markets, hairdresser, taverns and internet cafe. Larger supermarkets, including a LIDL, can be found on your way to the beach resort "Platanes" at a distance of 4, 5 km, offering an elaborated tourist infrastructure of restaurants, cafes, tourist shops, etc... Summer night clubs and bars are concentrated along the Platanes beach road. Taverns serving typical fresh Cretan dishes can be found on the way to Arkadi at a short distance offering good quality for price value.
A long sandy beach can be found at approx 3 kilometers with local bars & restaurants. Water sports are available in the summer months. However there are many beautiful beaches all over the island catering all needs - busy, secluded, whatever you are looking for, you won't have far to go.
