The villas are perfectly located; close to sea and mountain, allowing the guests to explore destinations in the western and eastern part of the island.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at the villa and wish we could have stayed longer. The property is beautiful and Irini and her family couldn't have made us feel more welcome. They brought us delicious food, cakes, vegetables from their garden, and eggs from their chickens during our stay. They came every two days to clean and quickly came to our rescue when we managed to lock ourselves out of the villa.

The property had everything we could need and we found the peace and quiet and amazing views very relaxing. We had two small kids and really enjoyed Bali Beach with them.

Also, check out The View Restaurant just a 10 minute walk down the road.

Hope we can go back.

Traumhafte Ferienvilla in ruhiger Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Noch sitzen wir auf der schönen Terrasse, genießen den lauen Abend und das friedliche Glockeln der Ziegen und Schafe. Morgen jedoch machen wir uns auf die Heimreise und damit ist dann auch das Ende eines traumhaften Kreta-Urlaubs erreicht. Die Unterkunft in dieser wunderbar ruhig gelegenen und geschmackvoll eingerichteten Villa war alles in allem das Beste was wir bisher erlebt haben. Bereits zur Ankunft erwartete uns Agiri und ihre Mutter mit einem wundervoll zubereiteten griechischen Abendessen, einschließlich einer Flasche Wein. Ein solch herzliches Willkommen hatten wir bis dahin noch nie erlebt. Das Haus an sich ist ideal geeignet für eine 2-4 köpfige Familie, die Ruhe abseits des Touristenrummels in schöner Umgebung sucht. Alles Nötige um einen entspannten Urlaub zu verbringen ist vorhanden, einschließlich Internet per Wlan. Die Lage der Villa auf ca. 500m MSL gewährt einen weiten Blick in die Berge und auf das Meer im Norden der Insel. Agiri und ihre Mutter haben sich während der gesamten Urlaubszeit liebevoll um uns gekümmert und uns sogar mit einem Kuchen überrascht. Die Lage der Villa ist relativ zentral, so hatten wir es nicht weit bis Rethymnon und Chania und die Südstrände waren auch in ca. 80 min zu erreichen. Die Zeit verging wie im Fluge, und wir sind betrübt diesen herrlichen Ort morgen verlassen zu müssen. Bei einem weiteren Kreta-Urlaub würden wir auf jeden Fall erneut diese Unterkunft wählen, es gab einfach nicht die geringste Kleinigkeit die wir kritisieren könnten. Alles in allem war rundum perfekt.

Almgefühl mit Meeresblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind jetzt den ersten Tag wieder zurück aus unserem Urlaub und können zurückschauend nur positives vermelden.

Unsere Vermieter haben sich liebevoll um uns gekümmert. Alle zwei Tage wurde das Haus und Pool gereinigt. Wer ruhe sucht und wem es nicht zu stressig ist 9 KM auf einer Bergstraße ins Tal zu fahren ist hier absolut gut aufgehoben. In ca: 15 Miunten ist man unten am Strand oder kann in den dortigen Supermärkten seine Einkäufe erledigen.Das Haus ist großzügig geschnitten und gut ausgestattet. Nachts kann es etwas kalt werden da man in den Bergen wohnt ( jedenfalls war dies ende Mai anfang Juni so.). Familie mit Kindern oder zwei Pärchen werden sich bestimmt wohl fühlen da im Erdgeschoss als auch auf der ersten Etage jeweils Bäder,Schlafzimmer und Terassen vorhanden sind so das jeder seine Privatsphäre hat. Wir haben hier 3 wunderschöne Wochen verbracht. WiFi ist vorhanden ist allerdings etwas instabil so das hin und wieder die Verbindung abbricht. Dies war aber auch der einzigste negative aspekt.

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

This villa far exceeded our expectations in every way. The property/location are stunning and the owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful. In spite of arriving late due to getting lost (!) we were welcomed with a home-cooked meal and home produced wine. To our surprise we were treated to other home made goodies during our stay. The property was maintained to the highest standard and cleaning and linen changing was done on a number of occasions throughout our 11 day stay. We cannot recommend this villa highly enough. Should you choose to stay here the family will make you more than welcome and you will surely want to return.

Stunning views from a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this villa if you are looking for tranquility just a short drive from a bustling town by the sea.

Set in the most beautiful countryside with views over the hills to the sea beyond, the villa was beautifully furnished and very clean, inside and out.

We arrived to find a delicious Cretan meal waiting for us as well as wine and olive oil produced by the kind owners! The owners were very welcoming and were on hand to answer any questions we might have had.

The village of Charkia is very pretty and just a short stroll from the Villa - the proprietor of the Taverna (The View) couldn't have been more welcoming and made us the most delicious Greek salad we've ever had.

All in all, a wonderful place to stay.

Harkia Villas are perfectly positioned; away from the mass tourism but close to everything. The location allows the guests to explore with the same ease destinations in the western and eastern part of the island. The villas are a few kilometres away from the famous Arkadi monastery, and in east of the highest mountain on Crete, Psiloritis. In addition, the sightseeing of the ancient Eleftherna and Margarites pottery are in a close distance. Finally, the nearest beach is only 9 km away.
