Quiet space for an autumn recharge
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.
Thank you, Iain for choosing our holiday home as the place you have spent your holidays! Very happy you enjoyed so much and we look forward to see you again in the future!
Villa Adonis is a stylish and beautiful property.
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.
Thank you John for your great feedback! I can only say that it was great to have you with us and that it was our pleasure to help you as much as we could to offer you a wonderful holiday.
We would love to welcome you again in the future!
Warmest regards, Monique
Not only the accommodatio...
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 ...
"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!!"
Die Villa Adonis ist ein super ausgestattetes, schön gelegenes Ferienhaus mit allem, was dazu gehört. Es ist gut gelegen: sowohl zu den Stränden im Norden und Süden (zu bevorzugen) als auch zu vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten im Hinterland von Rethimno und Heraklion ist es nur ein kurzes Stück. (Ohne Auto geht allerdings nichts.) Im Städtchen Perama an der alten Verbindungsstraße zwischen Rethimno und Heraklion kann man alles Nötige für den Aufenthalt kaufen. Haus, Pool und Grundstück sind sehr gut gepflegt. Der nette englischsprachige Nachbar hat viele Tipps für schöne Lokale und Strände im Umland parat. Die Vermieterin Monique antwortet schnell und hat ebenfalls viele Tipps parat. Rundum zu empfehlen!
Dear Romy, many many thanks for your kind words! It was just wonderful to read that you have felt at home and ease, that you enjoyed the area and that your holidays bring sweet memories to you and your family!
Hope to meet again, Monique x
Tolles Haus, schöner Pool, super Service (Garten, Putzen, Handtücher) und sehr zuvorkommende Vermieter.
Thank you so much for your lovely words, Alexander! We are looking forward to meeting you again!
Warm regards, Monique
The location is 5km from the main highway on the road between Magnisia and Perama. Perama being only 5 minutes drive away is convenient for all your main shopping requirements. The nearest beach at Skaleta is only 7 km away and the attractive town of Rethymno, with its quaint old town, market and harbour, just a 15 minute drive. Heraklion and Chania airports are just 70 km in opposite directions or 60 minute drive. Car hire is recommend while staying at this villa which we can arrange for you free of charge. Many walks are available in the attractive green countryside surrounding the villa, and excursions organized. In the region are such attractions as The Monastery of Arkadi, ancient site of Elefterna, pottery village of Margarites, Melidoni cave etc. This lovely villa will suit those people who wish to stay in a quiet Cretan location but still would like the benefits of the lively coastal areas on their doorstep.
