Everything we could have wished for!
The Villa was exactly as described and looked even better than the pictures suggested! The owner Irini was so welcoming and made every part of our stay feel like we were in a 5* hotel! Spacious bedrooms, impeccable decor with plenty of room for multiple guests. The location of the villa is in the best position on the island. You can be anywhere in an hour and in the Rethymno town in less than 5 minutes! Irini went above and beyond my expectations and made it a memorable visit. This place is a must visit!
I would like to thank you by heart for your excellent comment. It was a true pleasure having you with us and your comment means a lot to us..I wish that you are having the best of time and that you visit us again soon as promised.
Warm regards and best wishes
Lovely holiday, thanks to Erini and Nikos
All of the family really enjoyed our holiday at the villa. Inside it is extremely modern and well furnished and all of rooms had everything that you could ask for, toiletries in all of the bathrooms, a well kitted out kitchen and good quality bedding in every room. What made the difference was the service provided by Erini, she could not do enough for the family. We had home made wine delivered, a lovely plate of pastries when we arrived and a beautiful pana cota during our stay. We also had a wonderful barbecue cooked by the local chef that was a great compliment to the wine that had been provided. We had a problem with wasps but this was dealt with immediately and any email to Erini or Nikos was answered within minutes, the service was excellent. There are numerous supermarkets nearby and it is only 10 minutes drive into the old town so the location was great. For such a big group as we were the outside was a bit small and the wifi was a bit hit and miss but overall we had a lovely holiday.
I can't thank you enough for your kind comment .It was my pleasure meeting you and your lovely family and can't wait to welcome you all again back in Rethymno.
I wish you all the best by heart. Hope you are doing well and that we meet again soon.
Warm regards and best wishes to all.

EIRINI ALSO SURPRISED US WHEN SHE INVITED US THE CELEBRATE THE EASTER MEAL WITH HER FAMILY, AND MADE A BIRTHDAY CAKE TO JACOB WHO CELEBRATED ON THE SAME DAY.
WE ALSO GOT 2 BOTTLES OF WINE PRODUCED BY HER FATHER, WHICH WAS VERY VERY GOOD ONE.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL FULLY EQUIPMENT KITCHEN AND BBQ, SO WE MADE ALL OF OUR MEALS WHEN WE WERE IN. BREAKFASTS AND DINNERS.
THE LOCATION OF RETHIMENON WAS VERY GOOD (1 HOUR FROM THE HERAQLION AIRPORT) AND THE VILLA 3-4 MINUTES DRIVING (1.5/KM) FROM SUPERMARKET AND VERY GOOD AND RICH BAKERY.
