Der Kontakt vor der Anreise war schon sehr angenehm und professionell. Die Mietwagenvermittlung hat hervorragend geklappt. Schnell und reibungslos verlief die Übergabe. Sehr zu empfehlen war die Vollkasko ohne SB, so musste man nicht gleich ums Auto laufen und alle möglichen Schäden notieren. Die perfekte Lagebeschreibung hat uns trotz Nachtankunft zielsicher zum Haus geführt. Hier fanden wir das bisher besteingerichtete Haus vor. Nett war der Willkommensgruß und unser gewünschter Einkauf war auch schon im Kühlschrank. Wir haben uns sofort zuhause gefühlt. Die bequemen Sitz- und Liegemöglichkeiten auf der Terrasse, am Pool, im Wohnzimmer konnten wir gut nutzen. Von der Lage her eignet sich Villa Castello hervorragend um Ausflüge zu machen. Es ist nicht weit nach Rethymno oder an die Südküste, sowie zu vielen schönen Stränden oder einem Binnensee. Ein Auto sollte man schon haben. Der Blick ist super, das Meer allerdings fast nur zu erahnen. Dafür ist es auch etwas ruhiger. Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin war extrem gut und herzlich. Wir bedanken uns für die Besichtigung der anderen Objekte, die alle diesen hohen Standard in der Ausstattung haben. Hier kann man richtig entspannen und es fehlt an nichts. Rundum ein toller Urlaub, vielen Dank für die schönen Tage in Villa Castello!!!

Panoramablick und unglaubliches Vogelgezwitscher

  • 5 of 5

Bedingt durch eine sehr späte Ankunft in Heraklion, erreichten wir die Villa Castello erst nach Einbruch der Dunkelheit. Somit konnten wir die Umgebung nur bedingt einschätzen. Doch in der Villa angekommen, empfing uns dort sofort eine sehr gemütliche Atmosphäre, die man sich für sein Feriendomizil wünscht! Am nächsten Morgen dann war die Überraschung perfekt: Eine wirklich phantastische Aussicht auf (frisch verschneite) weiße Berge, Meer und grüne Landschaft mit einer Vogelgezwitscheruntermalung wie sie poetischer nicht hätte ausfallen können!

Die Villa Castello ist für Naturliebhaber zweifellos die richtige Adresse. Man kann quasi direkt von der Haustür loswandern und die herrliche Landschaft erleben. Orchideenliebhaber brauchen nicht weit zu fahren, um einen Hotspot in der Nähe von Spili zu erleben! Das Haus selbst bietet allen erdenklichen Komfort, besonders in kühlen Monaten sorgt eine perfekt funktionierende Fußbodenheizung für wohlige Behaglichkeit!

Den herrlich einladenden Pool konnten wir wegen der eher winterlichen Temperaturen ( 9-14 Grad) leider nicht nutzen.

Für unseren nächsten Kreta-Urlaub ist die Villa Castello die erste Adresse!

Traumhaft schön!

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa Castello hat eine traumhafte Lage, der Ausblick ist einfach gigantisch. Zudem ist die Villa wirklich mit jeglichem Komfort ausgestattet und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet. Es hat uns wirklich an nichts gefehlt. Wir würden (und werden sicherlich auch) diese Villa jederzeit wieder buchen und können Sie wirklich jedem, der sich so richtig erholen will, weiter empfehlen. Die Entfernungen zu den nächsten Ortschaften sind mit einem Mietwagen völlig unproblematisch zu erreichen. Vielen Dank liebe Familie Beibl für die tolle Betreuung und sicherlich bis bald!

Luxus Villa mit Atem beraubenden Blick auf Kreta

  • 5 of 5

Wer gerne den Überblick hat, Ruhe sucht und trotzdem nicht sehr weit vom nächsten Ort entfernt sein möchte, der findet hier eine sehr geräumige Traumvilla mit einem wirklich Atem beraubenden Blick auf Kretas Berge und Küsten. Das hatten wir sonst noch nie. Man residiert oben auf dem Berg, traumhafte Lager der Extraklasse mit unverbautem Blick. Sehr gut erreichbar und nicht sehr weit vom nächsten Ort Kastelos entfernt liegt diese moderne Villa. Die Einrichtung ist Top. Es ist wirklich alles vorhanden. Von der Aircondition, über Grillplatz, Pool und Luxusliegen bis zum Carport. Geräumige Zimmer, neu ausgestattet und mit viele Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Service und Sauberkeit sind große Klasse. Zur "Großstadt" Rethymnon sind es ca. 11 km. Der nächste Ort liegt 2 km entfernt. Wir verbrachten dort unseren Kurzurlaub zu dritt. Herzlichen Dank auch für den freundlichen Service. Alles hat bestens geklappt. Herzlichen Dank ! Wir kommen wieder !
