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.

Beautiful villa in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July/August 2017. Our party consisted of 6 adults, 2 young boys and 2 babies.

The inside of the villa was very clean and really nicely decorated. It felt like home from home. The BBQ area was amazing and we enjoyed a number of very pleasant evenings around the large table watching the sun go down with a cool iced drink.

There are a number of seating areas both inside and outside the villa, so we never felt on top of each other.

The pool was incredible and the boys loved the slide (the photo shows a diving board which is not there any more).

We had a very warm welcome when we arrived from Emma and her parents. They actually made us a lovely local dish for tea as we arrived about 4:30pm. Delicious and a great way to start a relaxing holiday! Emma was always on hand for any questions or advice on places to go and which beaches are the best. There are three water parks within an hour and 15 minutes drive. We all went to one and had a very fun day.

We found a number of lovely beaches within half an hours drive and we were also very impressed with Rethymno old town (about 20 minute drive). A very typical quaint Greek town with lots of nice tavernas hidden down cobbled alleyways. We didn't have a bad meal and the prices were very reasonable.

There is a Lidl within a 5 minute drive as well as closer local shops for essentials.

We have stayed in a number of villas in the past and we all agreed that this is the nicest one so far. Suffice to say we wish we were there now having come back to the UK weather with clouds and rain!

If you are a looking a large villa, which is really well equipped and that is in a nice peaceful location, you wont beat this one. We have never been to the same villa twice in the past but we loved this one so much we may return one day!

Also the booking process was very straightforward thanks to Kostas at Etouri villas. He always responded quickly to my questions and his assistant Sophia was on hand throughout our holiday should we need to ask any questions.

Geweldig familie-huis met een mooie tuin, buitenkeuken en heerlijk zwembad

  • 5 of 5

Een heerlijk huis met supervriendelijke en gastvrije eigenaren. Er stond zelfs een heerlijke salade en een ovenschotel (home made) klaar toen we aankwamen.

Het huis heeft een lekker rustige ligging en is toch maar 7-10 auto-minuten van de stad en de stranden af.

Een geweldige plek om te verblijven met je familie of vrienden (ook kind vriendelijk).

Het huis is super schoon en er zijn voldoende handoeken en badhandoeken/strandlakens.

Genoeg te zien en te beleven in de omgeving maar het is ook heerlijk om aan het zwembad in de tuin bij de buitenkeuken door te brengen.

Een echte aanrader!

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").
