A week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

we came to Levates Villa in Prines for a family holiday with 6 adults. The villa was absolutely wonderful. High quality, well equipped and well layed out. The owner Mrs Polly was a delight, with lots of tips for restaurants and even driving us into town for one evening. Rethymno is 5KM away and is wonderful and the Villa is beautifully positioned to explore the fabulous Crete Coastline. The villa company helped us to organize a boat trip and booked a fabulous restaurant in rethymno for our daughters 25th birthday. We have stayed in a number of villas, but for luxury equipment and friendliness this is just about the best and we would highly recommend it. Thank you Valia for all your help and thank you Mrs Polly we loved it.

Amazing villa the pictures do not do it justice

  • 5 of 5

Polly is an amazing host she could not do enough for us to make our stay as memorable as possible.

When we arrived she was there to greet us with a smile and a bottle of wine which went down very well, the next morning she came to visit us and just to check that we had settled in okay she brought with her a home made lemon cake for my son which he joyed very much.

When we arrived and started looking round the Villa I was absolutely amazed as the pictures do not do it justice. The villa is much larger inside and out than you would think by looking at the photos, the Villa was immaculately clean and Polly even came during the week to change the beds and towels, the garden area and pool was cleaned every day.

I highly recommend this villa and I’m looking forward to returning soon as a week just wasn’t long enough Thank you so much for opening up your home to us we had an amazing time and look forward to seeing you soon.

Stylish and spacious villa in a quiet but easily accessible area

  • 5 of 5

The omens were good from the moment we decided on the booking, with lots of helpful information in advance from the very responsive agents, Think Villa. Despite a very late arrival, we were met by the owner, Poly, who could not have been more helpful. Her background in interior design was well-reflected in a beautifully presented but welcoming home to borrow, with plenty of light and space, inside and out.

Poly herself came early every two days to clean the pool and outside areas, which were always sparkling, and maintain the gardens and range of interesting trees. She was very attentive without being intrusive and a great source of ideas for local restaurants, shops and places to visit.

Despite our range of needs and views of how we wanted to spend our time (two grandparents with two older teenage grandchildren) we had the space and facilities to keep everyone relaxed and comfortable.

The villa met our preference for a quieter, higher vantage point with some views, while being within easy reach of the east-west National Highway and a good road through the central mountains to the stunning south coast of the island.

Turned out to be an excellent decision to book a short-notice late summer break and we thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Crete, managing to get plenty of time to relax while still seeing a lot of the island. Everywhere we went, people were friendly and helpful (no evidence of 'tourism-fatigue' here!) - an attitude exemplified by the welcome we received from our Owner.
