Gorgeous clean villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Villa Emelie where we spent the first week of our honeymoon. Katy & Vasilis greeted us at 1am (having waited at the villa as our flight was an hour late) with a warm friendly hug and showed us around quickly so we could get some sleep. The villa was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed and they had left so many nice things in the fridge and cupboards that, along with the delicious homemade moussaka, we didn't need to go out for the first few days and could completely rest up which was lovely. They also bought us a lovely homemade apple cake when they came to clean the pool. The house was beautiful and we felt very at home. We loved having breakfast on the outdoor sofa in the mornings and then watching the sunset and having a glass of wine on the big balcony upstairs. The pool was perfect and very clean and the shutters and mosquito nets were also very handy as was the automatic garage. Overall it was the warm hospitality of Katy and Vasilis that make us want to return as it really did feel so homely and welcoming. Thank you both for a brilliant honeymoon - we hope to come back one day.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Friendly welcome on arrival, with amazing hospitality. Greeted with Moussaka and a stocked up fridge! Everything was spotless and every need catered for which made us feel at home. Katy and Vasilis were easily contactable at all times and maintained the property well whilst we were there ... (also leaving us a home made Greek apple pie too!) They recommended some great restaurants and places to visit and knew the area very well. Rethymno is a lovely town and has everything you need to have a relaxing holiday, enjoy!

Hope to see you again Katy and Vasilis!

total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Emilie for two weeks with our three sons.

When we arrived at 21.00 hrs. dinner was waiting with wine, beer, water and soft drinks!

We ate outside on the terrace and felt all the travel-stress leaving us and relaxation taking over.

The first morning all was provided for a nice breakfast. The view outside was breathtaking with the sea and olive-groves.

We felt at home right away, the house is very spacious and clean, the pool is very well kept.

The owner's are lovely people who were always ready to answer any question's.

This is what a holiday should be like! We'll definitely return.

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 on holiday for my husband's 50th birthday. From the moment we arrived the quality of the place was evident by how well kept and clean it was. The villa was well equipped and the furnishings were like new and good quality.

On arrival we were met by Vasilis and Katy, who had prepared a greek lunch for us. It was delicious and hit the spot as we were all hungry after the 4 hour flight. The house was large and spacious, and the outdoor space was perfect with the many outdoor eating spaces, the grass areas and the great pool with views of the olive orchards and the distant sea view. The BBQ area was the ideal place to spend the evenings.

We would highly recommend this villa for those looking for peace and quiet but not too far from things to do and places to eat.

Thank you for a great stay.

Amazing villa, worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a well equipped villa in a picturesque location then this villa is for you. We could not fault this place, it had everything we needed. We have a 1 year old and there was a lovely cot and high chair for him to use. The pool has a gate so that put our mind at rest. There were even a few toys and a baby inflatable ring for the pool as well as lilos for us. Katy and Vasllis could not have been more welcoming and are a lovely couple. They made us a delicious moussaka for our arrival and a scrumptious apple cake when they came to clean the villa during our stay. The views from the villa are breathtaking overlooking vineyards and you can watch the sunset from the ground floor or first floor balconies. The villa is in a very quiet and therefore relaxing location. We would recommend hiring a car to stay here as although there is a small food shop for basics and a pharmacy within walking distance and a bar, everything else you would need to drive to. There is lots to do though in easy driving distance. The villa is very centrally located. The larger supermarkets are in Platanias which is about a 5 minute drive away. Rethymnon is a 15 minute drive away which is a nice harbour town with good shops and you are spoilt for choice with restaurants. There are restaurants closer to the villa than that though. There are beaches all along that coastline - we would recommend Georgioupoli as it has a family-friendly beach and Panormos. We would highly recommend a stay here.
