Fantastic villa with modern decor and spacious both inside and outside.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday and spent a large amount of our time at the villa, making the most of the beautiful outdoor space. Whilst we didn't use the pizza oven, we certainly made good use of the BBQ and alfresco dining. The shaded area outside was great and enough room to put the sun beds so we could sit Out of the sun with our baby. Excellent welcome from the owners. The fridge and cupboards had been filled with all essentials which was amazing as we arrived late at night and we had a lovely surprise when the lady bought an amazing home made apple and cinnamon cake round to the villa as a treat. Would recommend having a car so that you can get around but there are 2 lovely tavernas, 1 on the beach and both in walking distance with nice food and always a warm welcome. The view from the villa is stunning, we shall miss waking up and looking out at the beautiful sea. Thank you so much to Stella and her family.

Amazing Villa, amazing views and amazing owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in probably the best villa we have rented. Wonderfully kept, with great cleaners and modern everything. Owners were amazing and we're always available if we needed them but left us alone to enjoy our holiday. Only ever interupted when our host appeared with fabulous foods and fruit for us to try. What a cook.

Everything was great, a true 10 out of 10 experience. Thanks you

Fantastic Villa Walking Distance From Superb Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four including two teenage boys spent a fun-filled week at the well appointed and conveniently located Villa Ariadne in July 2017. Set up on a hill overlooking one of the nicest beaches in Greece, the Villa is about a 15 minute drive to the east of Ierapetra on the southern coast of Crete. The views overlooking the beach and the sea are spectacular at all times of the day, from dawn to sunset. The Villa is contemporary in style, and is well appointed with modern appliances and amenities, with the fastest Wi Fi I have experienced in Crete. There are several outdoor terraces, with the main covered terrace adjacent to the large salt water swimming pool. Here there are BBQ facilities along with a real brick oven, and a large dining table. The air conditioning units are quiet and efficient when needed, and all the bedrooms and baths are comfortable and spacious. The basement features a game room, a hammam sauna, and most impressively, it has two windows looking directly into the outdoor swimming pool! The nearby Achlia beach is a five minute walk down the hill, and has covered sunbeds and a taverna. The water is crystal clear and we experienced some of the best snorkeling in Greece here, discovering lots of sea life, including an octopus, Moray eel, and many different types of fish. There are several very good restaurants and tavernas within a 15 minute drive, with large supermarkets located in nearby Ierapetra. Other activities include a nearby hike to a waterfall in the mountains, and the opportunity to spend take a boat ride to an offshore island for a day trip. The added bonus of this Villa are the owners, George and Anna. Their gracious hospitality, warmth, conversation, and gifts of fruit and food made our stay even more delightful. Villa Ariadne makes for a perfect family vacation spot, and we look forward to returning again one day.

Stunning villa and outstanding service and attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

I can thoroughly recommend this villa. It's absolutely beautiful and extremely well equipped. A great deal of thought has been put into providing everything you may need and more. We were given a lovely welcome and the owners had left us a completely packed fridge on arrival including wine. It was very thoughtful. Anna even bought over a delicious cheese pie which we all loved. Nothing was too much trouble. They helped us with car hire at short notice and additional sunbeds. We felt looked after and they insisted if you need anything just ask. The villa is in a very secluded spot. You do really need a car. The beach and setting for the villa are stunning. There are two small tavernas near by. The beach one had live music and dancing and when we visited the one on the road we were made very welcome. It was family run and the owner joined us for raki and told us all about the area. That was lovely. The pool area of the villa is amazing and we had many lovely evenings watching the spectacular sunsets and barbecuing in the outside kitchen. We were a family group of eight. There is a lovely games room in the basement with a pool table,TV and exercise machines. The villa was cleaned literally from top to bottom every three days including changing all the bed linen and towels. Every morning the pool area is swept and tidied before you get up. Definitely the most beautiful villa we have stayed in and the best customer service we have experienced. A big thank you to Anna and Stella.

By far the most stunning & well appointed villa that we have been lucky enough to enjoy for 2 weeks. To have a wonderful pool plus a Games Room is a real luxury, & means that there is always something for all to enjoy. The attention to detail & comfort made it so easy for us to relax & enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The interior is very fresh & modern throughout, but without feeling un-homely as some do. Couldn't get any UK channels (other than BBC News) on any of the TV's, but Wi-Fi was sometimes fast enough to run Netflix, so not a real problem. Besides,the outside space was always inviting & a lovely place to enjoy lunch or dinner. We were also spoilt on several occasion by the villa owners who live next door, in that they popped round having cooked us some wonderful fish & local dishes - the Moussaka was our particular favourite. The beach is only a few minutes walk away (never too crowded), with a perfectly reasonable beach bar/restaurant, that was also good for evenings out. The water is warm & clear, so we often swum out to the next bay to explore. The beach bar also serves lunch/cocktails direct to your sunbed (which you can hire for the whole day for just 6 euros) - what more could you need?? There are also plenty of Restaurants that are about a 10 minute drive away - "STEKI" on the main road turning right from the villa does lovely pizzas especially! There are also a couple of supermarkets a short drive away. All in all, we cannot recommend this villa & owners highly enough, & wouldn't hesitate to return.

We were looking for a quiet break and this villa was fantastic. The villa is of a high standard, well designed with all modern conveniences. We used the local beach all the time - 5 minute walk away. I hired a bike and rode into the hills behind most days, with a lovely village a good target at 2000 ft above sea level. But the villa was where spent most of our time. Oh and the pool table with swimming pool windows behind - awesome. The owners were wonderful hosts and made things very easy with smooth logistics and admin also. The kitchen was very fully stocked on arrival and we were treated to food prepared for is on several occasions as an additional and really wonderful touch. Thanks again - we may well be back!!!
