Beautiful view over the sea

  • 5 of 5

Charming hosts, who came regularly to clean and brought us gifts from their garden and cakes. The outside area is lovely with a sheltered balcony and fantastic views over the sea and mountains.We very much enjoyed going to the sea, although walk able it's best to take a car as the property is situated on a road (without a pavement). We used a friendly local taxi service (+30 6937 127429 and ask for xristos) to visit tavernas sometimes in the evening.

two perfect weeks

  • 5 of 5

Our holidays in Nereid Villa were phantastic, such a marvelous view from all points of the area and the house, too. Everything is clean and well-kept. The rooms are big enough and tastefully furnished.

The family was great, so kind and friendly and always helpful.

The villa is a very good starting-point travelling across Crete so we really had a lot of interesting trips mostly in the western part of the island. But we also spent a lot of time in the villa-area, swimming, relaxing, perfect!

Clean, spacious, great pool and jacuzzi, fabulous views, fully equipped, great location & welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Beyond doubt one of the best views from this beautiful villa, the owners were most welcoming and only came to welcome and clean, fantastic pool and jacuzzi and lots of places to chill or hide from the sun. Full amenities all clean and working. Location was great by the beach and enough local tavernas- recommend a car to get to the best restaurants and these were recommended by the owners and were worth a visit. Highly recommend.

Superb villa, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is lovely and not overlooked by anyone. The electronic front gate gives an increased sense of security, albeit that isn't required as this is one of the safest and friendliest islands that we have visited. The road outside doesn't have pavements and is quite fast, so we wouldn't advise walking anywhere, but that aside the location is good, only 10/15 minutes by cars from numerous restaurants etc. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful, and Valia's cakes were very good. The villa is great for sunbathing and the beach was very quiet when we visited at the end of May / start of June. We would definitely return to the island and this villa.

Lovely villa for our family vacation. Breathtaking views.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa well positioned for visiting this part of crete, Rethymno & Georgiopolis are only 20 minutes away. The views from the villa are absolutely amazing. Breathtaking.

The villa owner made us very welcome throughout our stay, baking us a cake .. and even brought us eggs and vegetables. Such lovely people. The villa is peaceful, totally private, and has panaramic views that really do take your breath away.

You won't find a better place

  • 5 of 5

Superb villa in a gorgeous environment. Still better than what we see on the photos. We enjoyed the pool every day of our stay, returning from great roundtrips in the country. Villa well equipped and very clean.

The owners are always available and helpful, very charming. Thanks to Valia for the delicious homemade dessert that she gently gave us.

More than highly recommended !

Episkopi is a small town near to the city of Rethimno, overlooking the northern coast of Crete, and the green and fertile valley of Mousselas river. Episkopi is the administrative and commercial centre of the area, providing quite a few facilities such as tavernas, supermarkets, a bakery, an ATM machine, a post office, as well as a fish shop and a butchery.

The homonym beach Episkopi is located really close, just 5 minutes away by car, in a fertile valley with lowlands. It is a long beach, which is sandy and shallow, like most beaches of Northern Crete. It is very well organised, since there are many hotels, restaurants, taverns, bars and all the amenities one could need. In the western part of the beach you can find places with lifeguards, showers, changing rooms, umbrellas, snack bars, water sports, etc., perfect for children. However, given its large size, you can certainly find a quiet spot, especially in the eastern part. Lastly, at the beginning of the beach on the east side there is an opportunity for naturism.

Then you could visit the neighbouring village of Argiroupolis, with its springs and lush vegetation…a taste of Cretan paradise, breathtaking view for your eyes, calming water sounds from waterfalls for your ears and divine taste for your mouth!

Moreover, Lake Kournas is also located in close proximity. A beautiful freshwater lake in the midst of a mountain backdrop, you can sunbathe around the lake, there are sun beds, or if you prefer, go swimming in the lake, hire a pedalo (it takes about an hour to get all around the lake) or enjoy a meal in one of the plenty restaurants around the lake. Also, a tennis court could be found in Kournas area.

Furthermore, Petres beach is located at the eastern end of the vast beachfront of Episkopi It is named after the imposing Petres Gorge that finishes here. All around there are some facilities such as, restaurants, a diving school, etc. In the main cove of Vythos, which lies north of the others, there are umbrellas and it is less sandy. The rocky seabed is ideal for fishing and snorkelling.
