Absolutely stunning property! Huge outdoor space beautifully landscaped. Inside the villa was homely

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night and entering the gates to the villa was like entering a lush tropical jungle! Absolutely stunning!

Our first morning was spent exploring the huge grounds which are fully secured and safe for children. There were a selection of toys and inflatables. The garden is beautifully landscaped with lots of seating and shaded areas. There was even an outdoor tv where we enjoyed watching the World Cup! The three separate sections of the pool were enjoyed by all!

Inside the villa was cool, clean and definitely felt like home. The master bedroom has an amazing bed which we found so comfortable... it was a pleasure to crawl into at the end of every glorious day!

The door of the villa was alarmed so if any children managed to sneak out to the pool unattended, we knew straight away! An excellent safety feature.

We did a little exploring at nearby panormos, rethymno, Perama and Bali. Panormos was our favourite. We used a great little takeaway restaurant in perama called Opaka. Delicious and great delivery service! We shopped for groceries at Lidl in rethymno mostly... but also topped up on smaller shopping trips to nearby perama.

Villa owner Eva was lovely. Even when we needed her help for a slight emergency at 11pm one evening , she responded immediately! She also surprised us with a delicious dessert she had made! The villa was cleaned and beds changed every three days and we became friends with the cleaner 😄.

Since returning home from our fabulous trip to villa Eva, we have started to plan our next holiday!! We have looked at many villas in many different countries... but we keep comparing to villa Eva! We might just have to go back!!!!

Perfect Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from a fantastic 2 week stay at Villa Eva.

The villa itself is immaculately presented and comfortably fitted 8 of us. The pool area is beautiful (day and night) and is cleaned on a regular basis - every few days. The villa itself is also cleaned every few days including all bedding and towels etc.

Everything we needed was well catered for both before we went through Valia and whilst we were there by the owner Eva. Nothing was too much trouble and if we had any questions, Eva was always on hand or at the end of a phone - she even provided us with a delicious traditional Moussaka halfway through our holiday which was a lovely touch.

The Villa itself is about halfway between Panormos and Perama which both have supermarkets, bars and restaurants. If you travel further a field to Bali, you will find a beautiful beach with plenty of watersports, beach side bars and places to eat. The beach is perfect for children as the water is shallow and warm. I would recommend a hire car as the Villa does not reside within walking distance of anything, but the local Taxi service was great - Nikos was always quick to arrive and offered a great service.

I would highly recommend Villa Eva to families, we also got to look around Villa Dimitrious which is next door which would be perfect for larger groups (sleeps up to 17 i think).

We all had a fantastic time and would strongly recommend Villa, hopefully we will get to go back again next year.

We were 2 families holidaying to celebrate my 40th birthday. The children were aged 5, 5 and 16 months. All of us agreed we could not want for more in a villa and had an incredible holiday.

The villa is purpose built, clean and brilliantly resourced eg. A real coffee machine, 3 hair dryers, a juicer and a good selection of basics in the kitchen to get you started on arrival (milk, bread etc).

The outdoor area is exceptional. We enjoyed every area- the comfy seats in the evening playing cards, the dining table for every meal, the BBQ, the shaded baby pool, the pools, the hammock, play area, sun loungers (which we all commented on how comfy, secure and well designed they are!) and table tennis (we bought a trophy for the winning couple- it wasn't us!). We enjoyed many pool days.

The beds are comfy and air con is set for a cool indoor experience. The ensuite shower to the main room is a bit cramped. And the fourth bedroom is not ideally located off the kitchen- but we didnt use that.

The local area is fab with a mouth watering bakery a couple of minutes drive away. There's a great take away down the road and Food store. You need a car. We loved visiting the local beaches in Bali. They are all set up with umbrellas and loungers. The sand is dark and the water clear. If you swim out it gets that turquoise blue.

We feasted like kings at every opportunity and loved every meal. Fresh tasteful delicious food including the amazing moussaka that Eva cooked for us!!

A MUST restaurant to visit is Prima Flora in Rethymno. Book in advance. We ate there twice.

The weather was hot with no clouds in the sky every day. We lived by the pool or sea so this was always a positive.

The local people were always kind, warm, welcoming and honest. And Eva was so helpful! She started a What's App group with us before our arrival and was always on hand with help and advice! Even when we locked ourselves out! (Keep a door key hidden outside just in case!)

We were nervous about the road as mentioned in other reviews but were pleasantly surprised. You do hear the cars or lorrie's that pass but you soon tune them out, the road isn't that busy and all has been done to block the sound and sight if the road.

I have hired many villas and traveled extensively. This experience at villa Eva was wonderful and fitted our brief of a relaxing poolside/beach holiday with great weather, food and friends.

We recommend this Villa without reserve.

Comfortable well placed villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa with our son his partner and grandson for 2 weeks. Beautiful safe pool which our 3 year old grandson made the most of, lots of seating outside, cool areas BBQ etc. Walled safe garden with parking for 3/4 cars. Plenty of pool towels supplied, the pool and grounds were attended a few times during our stay. The 2 twin bed rooms and 1 master with ensuite are exceptionally comfortable, the smaller double is off of the kitchen. Separate large bathroom. Very comfortable and well equipped house. Our maid came at least twice a week to change the beds and clean. Eva the owner is lovely and made us traditional moussaka which was exceptional I would say you definitely need a car, there are lots of food shops in the little town just up the road - if you want beef you have to go to the butchers shop. Chania is a beautiful place to visit, here you can book boat trips. Rethymno has lots of places to eat, lovely shops, nice beach - here you can hire jet bikes. Arkadi monastery is worth a trip, its cooler in the mountains and you pass lots of interesting villages and tavernas, if you go here drive to Spili - very pretty and you can drink the mountain Ian water which comes out of 20ish lion heads (fountain). Make sure you have a good sat nav. We had a really enjoyable time here. One negative this villa is on a very fast road and although there is a high wall and trees you can still hear the cars (not in the house) so if you want total peace from vehicles whilst relaxing by the pool it is unlikely. This did not in any way stop us having fun and using the facilities.

Perfect Crete Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks staying at villa Eva (2 adults and 2 Children) and loved every minute of it. The weather was perfect and the villa was just right for us.

When we arrived late on a Saturday night, the owner was waiting at the villa to greet us and show us round her property. We were instantly impressed with the surroundings and more than looking forward to calling it our home for 2 weeks. Eva (the owner) was brilliant over the two weeks, any issues we had she was a call away and helped sort things pretty fast. Also she appeared one day with a home made mousakka. Which was delicious and not a bit of it was wasted.

Eva (The Villa) was perfect for a quite getaway and was all we needed. The out door space and pool area was perfect day and night. There were plenty of areas to relax in outside. They was plenty of sun loungers with sun around the garden all day, and plenty of seated shaded areas to get a break from the sun also. Also there was a nice seated area which we spent many a night relaxing in comfort with a bottle of local wine (or two!!) and BBQ. The pool was perfect along with a spa pool to chill off in. The outdoor area at the villa wow's you straight away and was the back drop to many of our holiday photos.

Inside the villa it was great too, not that we spent too much time in there with the nice summer sunshine. The villa was clean and comfotable and kitted out to a high standard.

The only downside to our stay at the villa, was the proximity to the road of the villa. It was private but the noise of the traffic passing on the road could easily be heard. Luckily our music help drone out the traffic noise while were outside so we didn't let it spoil anything. As the Villa bedrooms were all at the back of the house when inside you cant hear the traffic.

Location wise, the villa is well located and everything we needed close by. However a car is required as really there is no where near to walk too. A short drive away we spent a great deal of time in the village of Panormo which was a short 5 minute drive. There was was a decent supermarket for all our needs, as well as some nice gift shops and a butchers. Also some fine restaurants which server some great food, as well as a few quite terverna's for some relaxing drinks too.

Overall we are happy to recommend Villa Eva, it was a fantastic two weeks.
