Just come back from a week in this lovely Villa. It was exactly as described. The Villa was spotlessly clean and well maintained as was the pool. The owner was very helpful and stayed in contact right up until we left and once we got home. I would definately recommend this Villa and is perfect for couples wanting a quite week away from it all or for a family as there is ample bedroom space and two bathrooms. We found a lovely restaurant in Bali which is 10 min drive away called Panorama and is worth a visit. Would definately stay at this Villa again if we went back to Crete.
Wonderful spacious villa in semi peaceful rural area with spectacular views - Mountain View - perfect name for lovely villa. Fantastic sized pool, virtually everything required for a near perfect holiday. Only downside - no WIFI - which would make this villa perfect ! Well equipped in kitchen - all utensils we required. Would benefit from air con in living room/kitchen as very warm but just about managed heat with portable fans - air con spot on in bedrooms ! This is a lovely place to stay but if you have young children - take DVDs to keep entertained in the evening as there is not much choice on television in Crete ! Perfect for an away from it all holiday - we really enjoyed our stay and would like to say huge thanks to Dave for his assistance fixing the toilet and round the pool - sterling work ! Also big thanks to Ann & Billy who greeted us and provided vital information ! Had trouble finding villa due to Crete road signs - extremely obscure - GPS a definite plus getting round island ! So apologies for late arrival ! Car essential for staying at this villa - bit off the beaten track but that was a positive for us - do not expect entertainment on your doorstep - but plenty within 15 min drive. We liked Bali ( Akrogiali Taverna)and Panormo (Kastros and Porto Parasiris) - plenty of nice places to eat in both villages. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would definitely return to this area - had everything we look for in a holiday.
Spacious villa with particularly lovely terraces and pool which are very well maintained. Some of the equipment in the villa needs attention though such as freezer door, dishwasher, coffee machine and one of the air conditioning units. Some household items - matches, detergent, bin liners etc would have been appreciated (I would have been happy to pay a little more for the booking for these type of items to be included). Also, the village no longer has any shop or taverna but it is only a short drive to Panormo, the nearest town. The local contacts recommended by the owner were friendly and helpful.
From the reservation until the end of the vacation, everything was 100% in order. Very smooth communication with the owner. The house has everything you would expect for either a short or long stay. Both house and pool were very large and clean; ideal for a relaxing holiday! Each bedroom has airconditioning, which was very welcome. The villa is centrally situated on the island and makes for a good starting point for excursions in every direction.
Take into account that the villa is quite remotely situated, and that there are no real 'classic' tourist accomodations within close walking distance, just a few local bars/small shops. Personally, we did not mind, as we appreciated the calm environment, but if you like more activity/bars/restaurants in the direct neighbourhood, you might consider a stay closer to a city like Rethymno, allthough the nearby village of Panormo (+/- 2km) is very cosy and touristfriendly, and there's a LIDL supermarket at +/-15km from the villa.
Mountain View villa is in a quiet village location but close to the lovely resort of Panormo and to the main coast road. The villa is well equipped and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The pool is excellent - a good size for swimming and has lights at night. The oversize sun umbrella was fantastic for shelter from the hot sun. The villa was very clean throughout and well-maintained. The owner was very easy to deal with in making the arrangements, and there were a number of english people looking after the pool and villa who were keen to offer information and advice about what to see and where to go. All in all a relaxing stay in a very nice villa.
The villa was well looked-after, clean and had all you'd need for a comfortable stay and a good lay-out with regard to living and sleeping accommodation. Very pleasant pool and outside seating. The immediate village itself has little to offer but slightly further afield, and a short distance, the seaside village of Panormo is very lively with good bars and restaurants. Down the coast is another lovely village by the sea, called Bali; well worth a short trip for brunch, lunch or whatever.
In all we, had a great time.
Panormo is a small holiday resort, located in the center of the northern seaside of Crete, between Heraklio and Rethimno. In the ancient days of steam travel it was an important harbour and a flourishing small town. About 25 km south to the mainland is the archaeological site of ELEFTHERNA. Today, Panormo is a protected area due to its beautiful and traditional narrow streets and buildings. A fine sandy beach, several good restaurants, a wonderful sea view are just some of the pleasures a visitor can experience in this picturesque little resort... It is also an excellent geographical point to use as a base for excursions all over Crete
