Beautiful villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Villa Iris. It's set up on the hills overlooking the sea just 7 minutes from Platanias with its beaches, restaurants and shops. Rethymnon is a short drive away and it's also easy to access the beaches to the south. All rooms have air conditioning and the small pool is well located and in the sun. Beware of the steep gravelly drive up to the villa making sure your hired car has good brakes and use first gear to go up! Overall we had a lovely stay and Dora was a most helpful and welcoming host. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a superb location seemingly in quite countryside but only five minutes by car away from the tourist area and very close to the national road so easy to access other parts of the Island.

It is very well equipped and really covers all requirements however I would say the dishwasher is rather small for a family. Dora supplied plenty of linen and towels which were changed after a week and also a cleaning service which was greatly appreciated.

The outside is fabulous with plenty of shaded areas to eat either breakfast outside the kitchen or on the terrace looking out across the valley to the sea or dinner on the BBQ by the pool.

The area is very well supplied with supermarkets and wonderful restaurants either by the sea or in the mountains. I would suggest a car is necessary though in order to thoroughly enjoy the area.

Just a word about Dora - she met us near the villa to guide us there and left a welcoming meal she also returned later with Greek pastries and home made apricot jam and homemade lemonade and brought a further meal as we were about to leave. She was always available if we needed her and was always helpful - a real treasure.

Nice villa for family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The owner is an amazing person, she is very helpful and very good host. Thank you Dora!

We were 4 adults with 3 children.

Villa is located in a quite place and hided from neighbor's eyes. Plenty of fruit trees make you staying there really sweet and tasty. Grill place is fantastic, the area with stoned furniture is cozy and easy to wash.

Nearest taverna with local food is about 5 minutes walk down. If you want some better service you had to walk 30-40 minutes to the tourist zone. Car is highly recommended, and not only because of villa's location, but to discover the island.

Thing we didn't like but hope that the owner will take care of it:

- beds are hard. If you want to try it at home, put a towel on a floor and lay down. Some people may like it, we don't. Also double bed is curved down to the center, so you are rolling to each other. And again some couples may find it romantic, but it is not after a couple of nights in tension.

- There is no safety barriers along the stone wall in the garden, a person (kids) may fall down from the high of 8-10 meters.

Overall the villa is nice, clean and good located. We would like to come again but only if above mentioned limitations were improved.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the detailed review .But I must notify these: -Its matter of preference the kind of taverna you want to go .There are many restaurants in a touristic area not so far (5 minutes drive)but and evaluated ones with local traditional food (5 minutes walk) -Mattresses are orthopedics -Stone wall is too high (over 2 meters),so is impossible for climbing and then fall -Until now there wasnt any complaint either from anonymus host either from previous, about all above

If there is a piece of heaven on hearth, this is where it is ! It is absolutely gorgeous !

The brand new villa is very big, very comfortable, very well furnished, quiet, the view is breath taking and the pool delicious.

Not far from the super markets, Rhythmno, the beach and the famous touristic sites and not far from the express way therefore very convenient to go to the sites. It is very well situated in Crete.

We did not want to leave !! It was too good !

Many thanks to Dora, the landlady who has been very very kind.

Do not hesitate ! Go ! You will not regret it.

Un pur moment de plaisir

  • 5 of 5

Superbe endroit, cadre exceptionnel, cuisine locale délicieuse, un pur moment de bonheur. La dolce vita crétoise entre montagne et plage, loin du tourisme de masse. Un point de départ pour plein d'excursions ou farniente aux plages ! La piscine est top et la vue splendide !

Dora est une hôte accueillante, sympathique et très attentionné. σας ευχαριστώ pour le poulet, le melon bio, les gâteaux... !!!

La maison est très bien tenue et très propre.

Nous gardons un excellent souvenir. On revient ! Merci encore !!!
