We loved the house, fully equipped and only 29 mins away from Agia Galini and a host of restaurants and supermarkets
Superbe Villa, magnifique vue et hôtes attentionnés!
Nous avons eu une très belle semaine avec nos 5 enfants. Le propriétaire nous a accommodé avec un lit supplémentaire pour notre ado. Très apprécié. Belle piscine et terrasse. Maison propre, fonctionnelle et confortable. À 10 minutes de voiture des plus belles plages de la Crète, à l'abri du tourisme de masse. Nous avons eu de très belles attentions de la part de tous, le propriétaire, Kostas et son équipe! Merci pour ce séjour mémorable. Nous serions rester au moins une semaine supplémentaire!

Excellent property with wonderful views
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this villa. Ideal for three adults, and room for a fourth with plenty of space. The villa is very much as pictured in the photos and didn’t disappoint. It is very modern and well equipped with lovely views of the hills.
Although the town of Agios Galini is only a 15 minute drive away, the villa is very remote which suited us. Agios Galini has good beaches and supermarkets, restaurants etc. And although the roads in the surrounding area are windy, you soon get used to them.
Any problems are quickly sorted out and the service from Etouri Holidays and the owner, Mr Nondas, was friendly and efficient. The villa serviced and cleaned during the week which was very much appreciated.
The weather was hot and sunny in August, but we suffered from 3 days of the very strong Cretan Meltemi Winds – however no-one can predict the weather!
If we were to return to Crete, we would certainly consider the same location.
Beautiful location, wonderful home.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Galini and would return any time our travels take us back to Crete.
The house is very much as shown on the pictures. Beautiful all new construction and very comfortably and stylishly furnished. There is ample space for a family of 4 (we have 2 teenagers) but the house is laid out to accommodate 6 if you're OK with 2 sleeping on the living room sofas which are large and comfortable enough for that purpose.
Equipment leaves nothing to be desired for either. You will have a fully equipped kitchen so can do reasonable cooking for a 4-6 people family, a washing machine and air-conditioning if needed (we used it sparingly at night when the wind was too strong to leave the windows open). On the terrace there also is a gas BBQ. Furnishings on the terrace allow you to either lounge at the beautiful pool or have an al-fresco meal - the table is a bit small for a full-blown outdoor dining experience but if you're happy with serving food inside and stepping outside to eat, it's wonderful and allows you to enjoy the stunning view over the hills/mountains down to the sea.
The location is great if you prefer the quiet and don't mind driving 10-15 min to get to the beaches, dining or shopping. Southern Crete doesn't seem to be the most touristy part of the island, so if you like to step out of your accommodation and be right in the center of the hustle and bustle, this is not the place for you. If however you enjoy quiet, nature, beautiful uncrowded beaches with wonderful cristal clear water and small tavernas with great local food, this is a wonderful place to spend a vacation.
The owner and the manager were extremely friendly and helpful with anything that we asked for. Service with the rental included a quick cleaning and change of towels, bathrobes and linens every 3 days as well as pool cleaning.
We had a wonderful time. Thank you.
Dream Villa and Dream Holidays
My Girlfriend and me had a wonderful stay at the Luxury Galini Villa. We was there for 9 days and we loved it. You can find everything what you need inside the Villa and the whole accomondiation was very clean and new. The outside area including a pool is one of the highlights and the view is magical. The owner of the house Mr. Vasilakis and his team are very kind and they organized everything very well. We received a delicious cake and one bottle of red wine by our arrival. We can recommend everyone this really beatiful luxury home.
Our villa is located on a foothill of a mountain, in a traditional and peaceful village of Kato Saktouria in southern Crete, offering tremendous views of Libyan sea and surrounding mountains.
The area around the village is totally in nature and quiet and you will be able to relax and feel “away from it all” from the first moment of your arrival. It is one of the best locations if you seek to stay away from the tourist areas of Crete and also visit the amazing natural beaches of south Crete such as Agios Pavlos, Agia Galini, Triopetra and many more! One of the closest big villages with range of amenities such as shops, bakeries, taverns and supermarkets is the picturesque fishing village of Agia Galini, around 15 minutes drive from the villa. Additionally the well known village of Spili which also has all the amenities and a health centre is located around 25 minutes drive away.
If you like adventure, the location also offers the advantage of exploring the unique natural environment of Crete’s inland. Explore the villages, interact with the locals, find taverns with real Cretan cuisine and products, walk in the gorges around or find some totally isolated beaches! We will be happy to make you suggestions and directions for places which only locals know about them.
