Brilliant Villa for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

This spacious villa is great for large families or groups looking for a quite relaxing holiday. The owners are great hosts, they own a boutique hotel in the near by resort of Bali Beach and they just can't do enough for you.

I'd highly recommend this villa.

Très agréable séjour

  • 3 of 5

Maison située dans un village de campagne en face de l'église, avec vue sur les collines pas de vis à vis. Nous avons adoré la Crète et les crétois. La maison est agréable confortable, spacieuse, un peu bruyante avec le coq de la maison des voisins, et un peu sous équipée au niveau des équipements de cuisine : électroménager et vaisselle. Mais cela est compensé par un accueil chaleureux et un achat rapide de grille pain...La piscine est bien agréable quoiqu'un peu vieillissante. Merci à Georges pour son accueil, ses visites matinales quotidiennes pour l'entretien de la piscine et sa gentillesse. Merci aux propriétaires de nous avoir invité à dîner dans leur restaurant du village vacances

We had a great 2 week holiday and would definitely love to return to this villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in a small Cretan village (fresh bread from the lady down the road not to be missed) and the most amazing hosts who were friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. The location was perfect for us- a place that allowed us to experience 'real crete' whilst being a short (10 min) drive to the nearest town for supermarkets etc and 30 mins from the coast. The private pool was big enough/deep enough for our teenagers to lark around but also had a shallow bit at one end for younger kids. The linen was changed and the villa cleaned every few days which was a real treat. Highly recommended.

Sehr nette Vermieter, rustikales großes Haus

  • 3 of 5

Das Haus war im Wesentlichen wie beschrieben, die Einrichtung ist recht einfach und schon ziemlich abgewohnt. Auch die Bäder sind schon ziemlich in die Jahre gekommen. Sehr gut war, dass alle drei Tage eine Putzfrau kommt und es frische Handtücher und Bettbezüge gibt. Die Reinigung ist leider nur sehr oberflächlich gewesen. Die Küche war auch wie beschrieben mit zwei großen Kühlschränken und Backofen die 2-Personen Spülmaschine ist allerdings für so ein großeses Haus völlig unterdimensioniert. Der Garten ist eigentlich schön angelegt mit verschiedenen Sitzmöglichkeiten, die Ausführung eher rustikal. Die Gartenmöbel sind auch schon ziemlich gebraucht und einige sind defekt. Der Pool ist recht groß und eigentlich schön zum Schwimmen, allerding verfügt er nicht über eine ständige Filteranlage. Es kommt ab und zu jemand zur Reinigung aber mit den vielen Pflanzen und dem Staub- und Dreckeintrag durch den Garten war der Pool nie richtig sauber.

Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit, sie waren auch immer bemüht schnell eine Lösung für kleinere Probleme zu finden. Die Vermieter betreiben am Strand ein Hotel und wir wurden auch einmal alle zum Essen eingeladen. Sehr praktisch ist auch die Bäckerei die nur 200m vom Haus gelegen ist.
