Authentic Crete village & a delightful villa

  • 5 of 5

A very rural location in a real Creten village. We enjoyed 2 weeks of relaxation in this lovely family owned villa. With all rooms on the first floor, the entrance is up a small flight of stairs but the terrace looked out high over the olive groves to the hills and houses of this little village.

A ten minute walk along the lane through the olive trees takes you into the village with its church, tavernas, central cafe/bar and shops. Take a torch for the night time walk back, its very dark!

The family owners live nearby and are delightful and helpful people, never intrusive but available to answer your queries. Milk, eggs, butter, bread, cakes, homemade jams and marmalade were waiting when we arrived, and we were shown round by their son Elias whose English is excellent.

We'll definitely return to this little patch of Greek paradise.

the villa is really excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located in the middle of olive forest. In the village you will find butchery and backery with a fresh meat and bread. There are a number of traditional greek taverns with a very-very tasty food. The nearest beach is just 3 km far away. The sea is fantastic!

Everything you need on vacation house you will find at the villa. The owner, Georgos is a very hospitable and attentive. I would recommend this accommodation to everybody either with kids or without. The car is required.

Sommerurlaub Paar 53 und 56 Jahre

  • 4 of 5

Sommerurlaub auf Kreta! Wir waren 2 Wochen Anfang September in der Villa Aretousa zu Gast. Schönes großes Haus mit schönem Garten und Pool. Lage inmitten von Olivenbäumnen. Wir hatten von Frau Karpa aber eine gute Wegbeschreibung erhalten.Sonst ist das Haus nicht so leicht zu finden. Wir waren als Paar dort. Anreise war am Sonntag und die Vermieter hatten uns für`s erste Frühstück Lebensmittel in den Kühlschrank gelegt. Damit hatten wir nicht gerechnet und uns schon Gedanken gemacht, wo noch ein Supermarkt offen hat. Armeni selbst ist ein kleiner Ort mit Bäcker ( sehr nett und gut ) und Schlachter ( alles sehr frisch), recht urig und einigen Tavernen. Wir waren dort aber nur einmal zum Essen, da wir ein Auto gemietet hatten und nach Kalives oder Almerida gefahren sind. Ein Auto ist aber unerlässlich, da die Wege sonst zu weit sind. Unsere Vermieter waren wie schon bemerkt sehr gastfreundlich und wir wurden mit diversen Dingen verwöhnt. Im Garten ließ es sich gut aushalten, man hat immer irgendwo Schatten gefunden und konnte sich zwischendurch im Pool erfrischen. Obwohl nicht tief hatte man doch die Möglichkeit, mehrere Schwimmzüge zu tätigen. Bilder und Beschreibung im Internet entsprachen der Realität, Reinigung mit Handtuch-/Bettwäschewechsel erfolgte mehrmals. Man konnte die Tage also richtig genießen. Da wir in diesem Jahr einen Relaxurlaub machen wollten, standen nicht viele Ausflüge auf dem Programm, was aber nicht gestört hat. Es lohnt sich ein Ausflug nach Rethymnon.

Besonders gefallen hat uns das Essen. Es lohnt sich, den frisch gegrillten Fisch in den Lokalen zu essen oder, wie wir es nachher getan haben, sich verschiedene Vorspeisen zu teilen. Ist völlig ausreichend. Und: eine Frage welcher Fisch frisch da ist lohnt sich auf jeden Fall. Und dran denken: immer noch etwas Platz für Nachtisch frei lassen, den gibt es nämlich immer auf Kosten des Hauses incl. Raki. Liegen und Sonnenschirm am Strand von Kalives waren umsonst und nebenan konnte man leckeren Eiskaffee und andere Dinge genießen.

Einziger Wermutstropfen war, dass das Haus doch recht hellhörig ist ( Holzdecke oben). Wegen Schnarchen wählen wir immer Unterkünfte mit mind. 2 Schlafzimmern, doch leider war es mit der Ruhe nicht so gegeben. Wer allerdings nicht so empfindlich ist wie ich, für den ist alles perfekt.

Auch mit dem Mietwagen hat alles prima geklappt. Wir wurden am Flughafen nett in Empfang genommen und mussten nicht lange rumsuchen.

Durchaus zu empfehlen.

Best Holiday House with a Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 weeks and had a fantastic time. Georgios and his family are excellent hosts and gifted us fresh vegetables, olive oil and jams all from their farm. When our 4 year old had an accident Ilias, the owners son accompanied us to the hospital to help translate which was very helpful.The pool is lovely and our children enjoyed playing in it for hours. The villa is only a half how drive to Chania and only a few minutes from the nearest beaches at Kalives and Almyrida. The local butcher and cafe were excellent too. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and hope we can make it back again one day!

Wir kommen wieder!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 1 Woche lang mit 5 Personen in der Villa Aretousa. Der Platz war für uns mehr als ausreichend. Die Ausstattung des Hauses, bis auf Kleinigkeiten, super. Das schönste war die Lage inmitten der Olivenbäume. Von der Dachterrasse haben wir jeden Abend den Sonnenuntergang genossen. Die Vermieter-Familie ist sehr freundlich und hat uns mit Wein, Raki, Öl und noch so manch anderer Leckerei versorgt. Man kann hier die typische griechische Gastfreundschaft erleben. Wir waren rundum zufrieden und können das Haus, sowie die Betreuung durch Frau Karpa zu 100% weiterempfehlen.

Perfect for our stay in Crete- best yet

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described and the information we received from Ms Christiana was extremely helpful and extensive. The house and surrounds are clean and well presented. It is in a secluded position and very quiet and private. The pool was perfect for us - also secluded and private. The owners are fantastic. They are friendly and welcoming and occasionally brought us some delightful home cooked delicacies. Only a short walk away is the village with tavernas, caffeneons and all the necessary shops. Can't wait to return.

Armeni is located only 20 km from Chania and 3 km from the magnificent white sand beaches in Kalives.

Villa Aretousa is located on the outskirts of the small village Armeni. In comfortable 12 minute walk from the center of Armeni consisting of three excellent tavernas, a baker, a butcher shop, mini market, as well as the traditional Greek coffee shops.

Armeni is a typical Cretan village, where you can just sit in coffee shops can to drink alone or with the Cretans a coffee, raki, ouzo, wine, orange juice, a beer or eat an ice cream. Or you could sit in the cool shade of the huge plane trees with delicious food and feel yourself transported to another era, when the Schaefer daily home draws at the same time with his herd for milking.
