Lovely villa, peaceful location, great host

  • 4 of 5

We visited Villa Anna Maria for two weeks as a family (4 adults, 2 children) and it was a great holiday. Our host was fantastic, meeting us at the villa on the evening that we arrived and she even cooked a couple of meals for us during our time there - yum. The villa was clean and very modern, the owners also ensured the pool and jacuzzi were spotless. If you are looking for a villa in a peaceful location then this is the place for you, with great restaurants in nearby Panormos and just 20 mins drive to Rethymon. The sunset every night was truly stunning and you are in a great location to see it!

Beautiful, peaceful and relaxed holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just flown back from Crete this morning! We had an absolute fabulous holiday! The villla is clean, modern and just a lovely villa! The owner met us there upon arrival she lives a few minutes walk from the villa and left us some essential like bread water and juice for our arrival! She also gave us some homemade wine and olive oil! Throughout our stay she brought us home made feta cheese and stuffed vine leaves! She also provided us a slow cooked lamb with roast potatoes on our last evening. A very kind and helpful lady! Sheets and towels are changed every 2 days. You definitely need a car as nearest town and holiday hub is about 10-15 mins by car! But the villa is lovely away from hussell and bussel of holiday makers!! Highly recommend! My kids are 3 and 4 and loved having the pool and hot tub to play in! Just a fab holiday great !

A beautiful villa in the countryside with the sea in the distance and surrounded by olive groves

  • 5 of 5

This villa was superb. It is tastefully decorated with everything you need for a restful and relaxing break. Anna (the villa owner) could not have done more to make us feel any more welcome. The directions are hard to follow but it was not a problem as a quick call to Anna and she sent her husband out to find us and show us the way. The villa is immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. We watched the beautiful sun set each evening whilst sipping wine on the patio. Rethymou is about 20 mins drive and we found a superb restaurant there called the Lemon Tree. The local village on the sea is Portomo and about 15 mins drive. Lots of lively tavernas overlooking the sea with great food. Chania is about one hour but worth the drive if you like shopping but also a lovely harbour with some great restaurants and bars. All in all we had a fantastic week in this villa and would definitely come back.

We have had the pleasure of visiting the Villa Anna Maria on two occasions. It is absolutely beautiful! The surrounding views are amazing. Proximity to Rhethymno is good. Property was clean, well maintained, and even more than expected. Short distance to beach. Definitely will return to Villa Anna Maria and highly recommend it.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour en Créte. La villa était formidable: une vue exceptionnelle, le coucher de soleil tous les soirs. Les photos reflètent la réalité: les extérieurs étaient parfaitement aménagés et entretenus. La piscine et le SPA très agréable.La maison très propre et fonctionnelle. Le ménage était fait régulièrement. La propriétaire d'une très grande gentillesse qui nous a accueillis à notre arrivée, malgré l'heure tardive et aux petits soins ( frigo rempli pour déjeuner le matin, huile d'olive de sa propre production...) Elle nous a même préparé un agneau au four la veille de notre départ.. A recommander vivement. Maison au calme à la campagne et à 20 min en voiture de rethymno... tout était réuni pour passer d'excellentes vacances.
