Quiet space for an autumn recharge

  • 5 of 5

Staying in October, we were lucky with the weather (at least until the last 24 hours!), but this was a perfect place to relax. An hour to Heraklion, and only a little more to Charnia, we could explore much of the island without too much time in the car. And two teenage boys enjoyed the pool once we returned.

Set in a small development of about ten villas among the olive and citrus groves, this is a peaceful spot. The nearest shops and tavernas are less than 10 minutes away, but it was very helpful that we were met out on the main highway and taken to the villa the first time. The kitchen had what you would need, the beds were comfy and showers up and downstairs prevented any holdups in the morning. The arrival process was smooth, with the local support very friendly and responsive. All in all an easy and relaxing holiday.

Villa Adonis is a stylish and beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 including 2 teenagers and we have just returned from a 2 week stay at Villa Adonis. The house is very stylish and the grounds are private and wonderful with a great sized pool. Every evening we would sit on the terrace and watch the sun go down over the sea.

Villa Adonis is really well located for travelling around Crete if you have a car. The beautiful towns of Rethymnon and Chania are very accessible as are some of the best beaches that I have ever seen.

We are lucky to have travelled all over the world and have stayed in some amazing places but this ranks as one of the best holidays that we have ever had.

My thanks to Domonique for renting her beautiful home to us. She could not have been more helpful and accommodating in making this holiday special.

Not only the accommodatio...

  • 5 of 5

Not only the accommodation was superb, but also the extra's the owner provided. Lots of info beforehand via mail,a nice surprice gift when we booked, a welcoming package with the first needed groceries, the fact that someone waited for us half way to guide us to the house and who also informed us how everything worked, where the nearest shops were and more very useful info. And the house, the garden and pool, the view, the amenities... we couldn't wish for anything more. We had a wonderful two weeks! And by the way, we did not smell anything from a factory whatsoever, just perhaps the roses in the garden. When we go to Crete again, we know where we will stay! We can recommend this house to anyone!

"A wonderful surrounding ...

  • 5 of 5

"A wonderful surrounding for this villa where you can relax and admire the countryside! My best memories are the first night in the pool admiring the starry sky and sipping a glass of white wine left in the fridge for us along with greek yoghurt, fresh fruit etc... Other nights were spent star-spotting lying on the sun beds. Days were spent dicovering local markets, beaches,walking in gorges etc... You do need a car for staying in this house but the village of Perama is very near and people there are very friendly. If you go back to the same shops every day you can actually brush up your Greek as people are very good teachers!! Overall an expensive price to pay at least for us since we went in high season but worth it!! Villa Adonis deserves its name too!!"

Rustig gelegen, comfortabel, mooi uitzicht.

  • 5 of 5

Heel fijne tijd gehad in deze heerlijke wat afgelegen, maar daardoor rustige en privacy biedende villa.Mooi aangelegde ruime tuin en zwembad met comfortabele ligbedden met parasols ,mooie pergola met loungebank en fijn uitzicht richting zee in de verte. Het huis was voorzien van alle gemakken, heel goed met zorg onderhouden en pure luxe is het schoonmaken en de wisseling van beddengoed en de (bad)handdoeken.

Een auto heb je wel nodig om de omgeving te verkennen en voor de dagelijkse boodschappen. Wij waren er vroeg in het seizoen en de meeste Griekse tavernes in het "binnenland" waren nog gesloten. Zoals overal heb je ook hier de 'toeristische hapsnap"-restaurantjes. Bv in Bali, aan de noordkust, herkenbaar aan de geplastificeerde menu-flapovers die "uitnodigend" buiten staan en in Margarites BPYEH soort Kebab. Lekker gegeten hebben wij in Stavromenos bij Kehagias, heel gastvrij, zelfs toen we 's avonds laat nog aankwamen en de eigenaar ons begeleidde naar de villa en daarna nog naar dit restaurant. Thallassographica in Rethymnon heeft een prachtig uitzicht, maar kon ook vanwege het seizoenbegin nog niet alles vd menukaart aanbieden.

Rethymnon is een heel gezellige stad met veel gezellige restaurantjes en winkels, veel sieraden.Wij hebben verschillende wandeltochten ondernomen; oa naar Mili en Argiroupoli (helaas visrestaurantjes nog dicht)en de Samariakloof excursie.. Was een hele lange dag, de heen en terugreis was langer dan de tocht in de kloof die we in 6 uur hebben gelopen. Was mooi en voor een beetje geoefende wandelaars goed te doen als je met enigszins verende tred met kleine passen afdaalt en daarmee je knieeen wat ontziet. Beetje spierpijn hoort er bij! Wij genoten erg van de prachtige, weidse en groene Amarivallei-autotocht waar we raven, gieren, putters en een wielewaal hebben gespot. Ook de drakentonglelie, en prachtige voorjaarsbloemen.Ook zijn we geweest richting Agi Fontini en in Agonia, het handwerkdorp met het kleine idyllische terrasje en de zwart geklede vrouwtjes. Amaridam was ook mooi. Geweldige natuur, de zee, authentieke dorpjes, het weer, voor ons was er veel te ontdekken, een week was eigenlijk te kort.

's avonds was het buiten nog te koud, maar we hebben boven op de vide van het huis genoten van een prachtig romantisch uitzicht over de lichtjes van vermoedelijk Rethymnon.

Hautement recommandable !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé, avec nos deux jeunes enfants, deux semaines formidables dans la villa Adonis.

Dès le premier contact, Monique a été à la fois professionnelle et vraiment très sympathique. Les informations données sont précises, complètes et fiables. Les propriétaires ont réellement le souci de bien faire. Nous avons même reçu, six mois avant notre séjour, une carte de voeux manuscrite pour les fêtes de fin d'année, ce qui est une attention rare et délicate.

A l'arrivée, rendez-vous est donné avec Adonis ou son frère Vassilis à la station-service située à une dizaine de minutes de la maison, ce qui permet de ne pas se perdre lors du premier trajet car la maison est isolée (il faut absolument une voiture).

La maison est tout à fait conforme à la description. Très propre et fonctionnelle. Du beau mobilier de jardin. La literie est confortable. Chose rare : Vassilis et son épouse, charmants, viennent le mercredi et le samedi entretenir le jardin, changer tout le linge (draps et serviettes) et nettoyer les sols, ce qui est rare et appréciable. Ce service est compris dans le prix de la location.

Le jardin, ombragé, et la piscine sont très agréables. Un petit coin pour les jeunes enfants dans la piscine. Depuis la terrasse, belle vue au loin sur la mer et, le soir, très beau coucher de soleil. Un ravissement.

Tout est réuni pour un séjour reposant !

Sur le plan touristique, la villa est située à une vingtaine de minutes du monastère d'Arkadi. La ville la plus proche est celle de Rethymnon. Chania (plus belle que Rethymnon) est à une heure de route.

Les fruits et légumes vendus sur la route, avant la station-service dans laquelle le rendez-vous est donné, sont délicieux et à un prix défiant toute concurrence.

Merci et bravo à Monique, Adonis, Vassilis et son épouse ! Nous espérons revenir un jour !
