Perfect family Villa with excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with my daughters and grandchildren, 6 adults and 3 children under 5, stayed at Villa Acorn for 10 days. The Villa is beautiful and well equipped. The bedrooms are spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and the lounge cool and relaxing. The outside space is huge with a large heated pool and great play area for the children. The views are spectacular with amazing sunsets. The Villa is very private but only 10 min by car to beaches and the lovely town of Rethymno. The local village is a 10 min walk with a shop, bar and restaurant. George, Aphrodite and Emma are wonderful hosts providing lots of tips and a lovely meal on arrival plus great treats every time they came to the Villa. We all had a great holiday and would thoroughly recommend Acorn Villa to anyone. We would definitely love to stay there again.

Fantastic Villa with all facilities!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is surrounded by many olive and oak trees. The equipment is excellent! A fully equipped kitchen, a living room with a large TV and Playstation and a very large terrace with a large table where everyone can sit together. In addition, it has a barbecue pool house, which is located next to the beautiful swimming pool with slide. There are also basketball hoops, table tennis and table football. Balls and rackets are there. We spent a beautiful week in May with five adults and four children between 5 and 11 years. The weather was very fine, so we enjoyed swimming in the pool with clear blue water every day. The owners are so nice! They surprised us with a freshly cooked dinner on the day of arrival!

After half a week, the villa is cleaned and there is a change of linen and towels. The pool is cleaned every day early in the morning. But the owners are absolutely unobtrusive! For inquiries, they immediately take care of everything!

This villa is absolutely recommended! We will certainly return there!

Try taverna Christos! They also deliver the freshly cooked food to the villa, fantastic!!!

Wonderfull family-house on a beautiful spot.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean family-house with wonderfull big garden outside kitchen and pool. The owners make sure that everthing is perfect. Perfect place to stay, nice and quite and also only 7-10 min (by car) from the city and the beaches.

We had a great vacation at Villa Acorn with our family and recommend this property to everyone.

Perfect villa for quiet family vacations

  • 5 of 5

We - 3 couples and 3 small children - stayed in Villa Acorn for one week. First of all, we have to say that the hosts gave us a warm welcome (they even prepared a traditional meal for us!) and they were very supportive during our stay. We could get in contact with Emma and received an answer on very short notice. Also Mr. George came daily to take care of the pool equipment and the garden.

The Villa Acorn is very clean with a lot of places (inside and outsice) to relax. The kitchen is well-equiped (dishwasher, large fridge, ...). For our children, it provides a small playground which they enjoyed very much.

You need to have a car because the Villa is situated on a hill Close to Rethymno. However, there is a grocery store in 5min driving distance.

We would also like to mention the excellent Service we received from etouri vacation rental Management. They made sure we were comfortable and got in contact with us before, during and after our vacation.

Traditional tavern "Christos" in Gallos village
Car: necessary

The villa is located on the outskirts of Rethymno town in a totally private area, between the small village of Gallos and the village of Atsipopoulo which nowadays is actually a suburb of Rethymno town. There is nothing that you cannot find in Atsipopoulo nowadays, as it has all kinds of shops, supermarkets, bakeries, many restaurants and services.

In Gallos village where you can go on foot, you will find two mini markets and a great traditional tavern. Also an organised tennis court is located 1.9 km away from the villa!

More shops, seafront restaurants and supermarkets are only a couple of minutes away by car (3 km) in the entrance of Rethymno town, called Koumpes area.

Furthermore it is a great base for making excursions around Crete as the main national road is only 2 minutes drive away.

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different "location category" on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own "location categories").
