We felt welcome the instant we walked into this house. The owner was there to meet and greet us, with a lovely lunch prepared and waiting, very welcome after our journey. The house has loads of personality with the owner's flair for design evident throughout: unlike many holiday homes which, in an attempt to appeal to all tastes appeal to none, this one is thoughtfully and imaginatively decorated. Everything was spotlessly clean. The house is located in a small village which, despite being close to Rethymno, feels like rural Greece: the people are very friendly and the pace is nice and slow. Driving back from an early morning walk in Rethmyno one morning, we had to stop the car because an eagle was perched in the middle of the road. The village has three restaurants, all good: our favourite was Mylonas for the quality of the food, the incredible value and, most of all, the friendliness of the staff. This was our second time in Crete and our second time dealing with Valia at ThinkVilla and she is a complete star: it's like having a personal assistant when on holidays!
