We loved staying at Vilana. The villa was great, very well fitted out, modern and well designed, it had warm and big pool, with fab views from the mountains to the sea. But what made it really special was the wonderful service. Being met late at night, the lovely cake (which my kids our now obsessed with), the vegetables from the garden, the fresh eggs and general helpfulness all made for a memorable time. Evina is a star. This is a real gem and would highly recommend - in fact we've already passed details on to friends.
We stayed for 2 weeks in this exceptional place (family with 2 children). Exceptional view over the sea and Rethymno up to the white mountains. The villa is exactly as shown on the pictures. High quality furniture in and outside, beautiful design and high quality materials are used. The villa was cleaned every third day and the swimming pool area every day. Even the barbecue place was cleaned every day. Very friendly cleaning personal! We arrived at 11pm in Stavromenos. A very friendly person waited for us and drove together with us to the villa (10 minutes drive through the mountain side). Cheese, bread, ham, water and a bottle of raki were offered. Fragkiskos (the owner) dropped in for three times during our stay in order to advice us on nice places to visit, beaches and best restaurants in an around Rethymno. Supermarkets with a butcher and a bakery are at a 10 minutes drive in Stavromenos. A very lovely traditional restaurant is at a 5 minutes drive in Skouloufia (this is a must). I would absolutely recommend this place to every family who wants to stay in the countryside of Creta, still having an easy access to Rethymno and the surrounding beaches. We will definitely come back!
Our stay in skouloufia was awesome! Elvina is very nice, welcoming and friendly hosts. They picked up us at a neighbor village, it was very late. The nature in the area is amazing! Elvina has a lot of recommendations to give and simply are the perfect hosts. The villa is also perfect, clean and cozy. We can fully recommend to stay at their lovely villa. The service is also 5+.
This is a really wonderful place: a wonderful house with a nice swimming pool, very nice rooms, a nice kitchen and a wonderful view. We really loved the place. And the hospitality of the house owners is something we've never experienced before: just amazing. To rent this house is more than highly recommendable..
We spent one week at villa vilana, arrived on July 2nd, 2016. The way to the villa is not easy to find for the first time, however GPS helps a bit. We got a very warm welcome by the owners incl. nice gifts (e.g. cake, food, water, raki, bread) which was very much appreciated since we arrived pretty late and shops were closed already. The villa is just beautiful which is also true for the garden around it. Fresh herbs and fresh fruits/vegetables are available. The service provided by the staff for cleaning, pool and garden is very good. Evina also helped regarding local things to do (e.g. restaurants, beaches). Thanks for making this a memorable holiday.
Bottom line: highly recommended
