Without a shadow of doubt... this is the most amazing villa in Crete. Beautifully appointed, extremely well maintained and cared for, clean and close to town and very, very hospitable and friendly owners. We will be back!
We arrived very late, with two tired toddlers (and the weary extended family) to a hugely warm welcome from the owner Leonidas, who had stayed until the early hours of the morning to make sure we got in OK, and were welcomed with a warm meal and cold drinks. This was a great start to an incredible holiday!!
The villa itself was very well supplied, with a great spacious kitchen, and breakfast balcony looking out over the mountains and sea.
Anyone who has been to Crete will appreciate the sea views, and the stunning scenery are part of the magical charm of this island, and Villa O2 has been designed with all of these views in mind. The pool area is backed by a private garden, with herbs growing and a perfect BBQ area - with spectacular views across Rethmynon and the wider coast in both directions.
We ate outside most nights, and often had breakfast by the pool, looking out over spectacular mountain sunsets, and the glistening ocean below. Some of the best moments of our holiday were spent on the expansive lounge balcony, sharing a cold drink as the sun set, and chatting as the day drew to a close.
The bedrooms are all of a good size, with modern air conditioning in each, and the bathrooms are well apportioned and plenty of space - although we never actually used the Jacuzzi bath (which could fit a football team)!!
The management team at the Villa were attentive and no issue large or small was any trouble. The warmth of our welcome and continual attendance of the owner was a great help also.
I would highly recommned Villa O2 for families or a couples holiday. I would recommend car hire, as this is the best way to see the surrounding villages and local restaurants, although bikes for the local hills would be a great way to get around also.
It was a beautiful holiday in a truly stunning location, and we will hope to be back again before too long.
