“Our PERFECT holiday in paradise!”

Our 2 week holiday at Villa Aphrodite was just absolutely overwhelming. Stella and her charming family; Roula, Dimitris and George magic this 'heaven on earth' As guests you want for nothing and you feel so welcome and special. Our welcome pack was bountiful not to mention Roula's beautiful cooking.... spoiling us rotten so many times during our stay!
The spotlessly clean villa has everything you need. Having MS I particularly made use of the disabled fixtures and fittings. We made good use of the BBQ and would sit of an evening with a glass of wine watching the sunset over the sea. Stella recommended Giannikos Taverna (Prines) and it was wonderful, so you must go! Villa Aphrodite is perfectly situated to visit local tourist attractions.

Thank you again Stella and your truly wonderful family for all their hard work we appreciated everything. What a team. See you all June 2017.... can't wait!

“HEAVEN ON EARTH”
Reviewed 15 December 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is the fifth time that we have enjoyed the hospitality of the Sofoulakis family,,the first four times at Villa Artemis,but this year we moved up the road to Villa Aphrodite,and it was even more wonderful than all our previous visits to Crete.The location and condition of Villa Aphrodite are beyond compare.We felt as though we were the only people on earth because of the absolute tranquility,and luxurious surroundings.Nothing was too much for the Sofoulakis family.They took care of ALL our needs.Than you so much.See you again next summer.
