Amazing Villa with everything you need !

  • 5 of 5

Great stay for our family. The hostess was gracious to accommodate our late arrival and left delicious treats for us to eat that evening. The house is very spacious and the pool area too. Nice, clean and quiet! The pool was a hit with the kids and provided hours of playtime for them. We also loved the table tennis.

I highly recommend to try services provided from Muses Travel like the local lady who cooked the best meal we had !!! Rethymno town is very close - around 2km - where everything we wanted were easy to find. The Old Town was very nice to walk around and the sandy beach too! Highly recommended!
