Lovely remote villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa and pool were amazing, the views were superb, we had everything we needed including inflatables and pool games 😁? The peace and quiet was wonderful as we spent the nights eating late dinners or BBQ on the downstairs balcony sharing a glass or two of red wine, everything was clean and in good repair and we couldn't ask for any more xx the only problem we had was finding the villa in the first place, we knew it was remote but we drove round for about three hours looking for it. The directions could've been better as they were a little vague. We finally found it using tripadvisor, 😳?if this could be rectified and a little more local info put in the villa of local places to visit, best beaches, local restaurants etc then perfection xxx thank you for a memorable holiday x

It was our first time in Crete and couldn't have wished for a better place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away with the villa, inside and out it was stunning and so comfortable, it had everything we needed for our holiday.The family who looked after us were amazing; the pool was cleaned everyday, Popi and her daughter cleaned the villa, changed the bedding and towels halfway through our stay and Popi surprised us with a dish which was delicious, we were brought fruit and fresh produce too!, on our last day they waved us off, such lovely people. The views from the villa will stay in our minds forever. thankyou for everything .

New, clean villa with a peaceful view of the surrounding countryside and glimpse of the sea. Thank you for the gifts of local produce; cucumbers and figs. Oh, and the white bath robes were a lovely touch.

A place where you can really escape the fast pace of everyday life.

  • 5 of 5

We hired a car with a GPS which the rental company set up our destination for us, simple at first but as we got closer, due to unpaved roads the villa was a little difficult to find, however, once we arrived, it was well worth it! We were met by the housekeeper, Popi's daughter, and once we entered our villa we were met with a wonderful welcome table of fruits and drinks. Popi went out of her way to help us, she did an amazing job and nothing was to much for her throughout our stay there. The villa itself is away from anything - a very rural location which we loved, we had to drive 20 minutes to a Lidl supermarket and then would drive to Rethymnon in the evenings which had a great atmosphere, and I found Crete on the whole to be a very safe place, this was about a 30 min drive from the villa.

The Villa is a new build, all amenities are available and the views you can see from the villa are amazing. If you are looking for some real quality time with no distractions then this is definitely the place to go.

Highly recommended!! Would definitely go back to this place again.

Super entspannter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

In diesem Haus passt alles ... sehr sauber und gemütlich! Es war bei der Waschmaschine / Geschirrspüler sogar das Pulver dabei sowie Spülmittel für die Abwasch war vorhanden... der Kühlschrank war am ersten Tag auch befüllt mit Butter Marmelade und Wurst sowie einen Toast! Bekammen von der Vermieterin einen Willkommenssnack mit Wein und ein Abschiedsessen !! Das Haus ist wirklich zum weiterempfehlen!!!
