Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay at the Villa Asteri in Chania was a wonderful experience. The villa was delightful and in a quiet road only a few hundred meters from the local beaches and restaurants located. The pool was fabulous, and the small ancilliary pool was great for soaking in whilst reading a book. Our hosts were excellent at looking after us and making us feel welcome. The villa was exceptionally well maintained with daily pool cleaner and maids twice a week. We had a wonderfully relaxing time and would thoroughly recommend Villa Asteri.

Chania is a lovely town abd not to far in a cab approx. 5km costing approx. 10 euros

Would definetly visit again

A special birthday holiday

  • 5 of 5

The holiday was more than we could have hoped for when my wife first had the idea, a special treat to celebrate her birthday. Three generations of the family (12 of us) from 3 to 70 years old.

The villa was spacious and extremely well equipped, it was spotlessly clean when we arrived, it is well maintained and a credit to the owners.

The pool was enjoyed by all of us - sufficient sunbeds and inflatables for the children to play with.

We cannot thank Esther and Demetris enough for the generosity shown to us throughout the week, starting on arrival at 00.30 in the morning after a 3 hour flight delay to find hot food in the oven.

The hospitality shown to us was absolutely first class. They were very thoughtful and made sure that our every need was catered for. So much kindness shown to us to make sure we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, and we did, so much so, we will return.

Would recommend this villa to anybody without reservation.

Thank you Esther and Demetris.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were to families with 6 children from 2-11 years. We really loved the house and property. The house was large and clean, and the owners provided an excellent service to us. The best part was the large garden og two pools which are suitable for children at all ages.

Wonderful Villa Asteri

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a wonderful week at your villa. A spacious, clean and modern villa with all the facilities one could hope for (the water purifier was a pleasant surprise as it meant we didn't have to carry water from the supermarket!). A very large pool, with a smaller pool/jaccuzi which was great for the children. Four tavernas as well as shops, supermarkets, beaches, all within easy walking distance of the villa, meant that the villa was ideally located. The centre of Chania was just a short bus ride away so no car was needed. Esther and her husband were wonderful hosts; the regular supply of apricots, oranges, grapefruits as well as jams and honey, were a most welcome bonus! A truly memorable week.

John and Jan
