Why La famille Koutelidakis chose Crete

Villa Athina, Villa Afroditi and Villa Estia are named after the three goddesses of ancient Greece.

All the 3 “goddesses” are located in the heavenly peaceful and safe village Pagkalochori, surrounded by any type of trees (e.g olive trees the ultimate symbol in Greek myths), in a spacious garden which gives the sense of freedom, flowers and traditional, local herbs such as "diktamo". The villas are ideal for relaxing, unforgettable holidays for you, your family or friends, with a comfortable outdoor area for children too. Our family is ready to offer you a warm and hospitable welcome along with an experience of cretan culture, with the best possible quality at affordable prices.

The closest villages to Pagkalochori are: Sfakaki, Skaleta, Stavromenos, Loutra, Pigi, Asteri, Arkadi etc. The villas are situated in the middle of the island so you can easily visit the eastern and western part of the island.

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

To be recommended most enthusiastically and with no hesitation whatsoever!! Nobody could possibly be anything but delighted with the villa, the property, and the hospitality of the wonderful hosts!! The pictures online do not do the place justice at all - it is totally modern, well-lit, and VERY spacious.

We rented a villa for one week as a family (two adults, one grown-up child) and were absolutely thrilled. We have travelled extensively and are very particular, but this accommodation is SPOTLESSLY CLEAN, gorgeous, and very convenient. ALL the appliances, etc. work perfectly (the shower leaves a flood, but this is common all over Greece), the pool is always immaculate, the beds are terrifically comfortable, and there is tons of closet space provided. The kitchen is well-stocked with pans, etc. and you can do proper cooking if you wish. The AC also works perfectly and there are units in every room. Even though we were there in mid-summer, there is a lovely breeze and we never had to use the AC overnight. I can't praise this accommodation enough - the family who runs it is absolutely lovely and I wish them the very best.

  • 5 of 5

"July 2012- I have just arrived back with my wife and 2 daughters aged 7 and 4 from Villa Estia. From the moment we arrived Nicos and Maria made us feel very welcome. The villa and grounds were immaculately clean. We were greeted with a lovely traditional Cretan meal which was a real surprise and treat. This allowed us to relax, unpack and settle into our holiday surroundings. Our children enjoyed the use of the pool which we often had to ourselves. We also enjoyed a lovely evening BBQ cooked by Nicos and Maria. The villa is very well located to local beaches and Rethymnon town which is only 10 kms away. We would highly recommend this villa if you are after a peaceful relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings."

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The kids loved the pool. You are surrounded by olive trees and there's plenty of shade when it's too hot. The houses are separated from each other by the trees so quite private. It is spacious, in the middle of the countryside but only 15 minutes drive from Rethymon center and 10 for the beach. The hosts are adorable. Definitely recommend!

Des vacances reposantes et dépaysantes !

  • 4 of 5

La villa et le jardin sont encore plus beaux que sur les photos ! La villa est très confortable et très bien entretenue. Le jardin est magnifique avec ses oliviers centenaires, ses citronniers, figuiers... Il faut aussi imaginer les odeurs et le chant des cigales ! Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et accueillants ! La présence de 2 autres villas sur le même site n'est pas du tout gênante. Il n'y a pas de vis-à-vis. Il y a juste la piscine à partager pour la plus grande joie des enfants qui se font des copains ! La location est située à quelques km de Rethymnon, dans 1 petit village. On peut facilement s'approvisionner à proximité (en voiture). C'est 1 adresse que nous recommanderons à tous nos amis.
