“Best holiday ever”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Judy and Mike are the perfect hosts Never intrude but always on hand if you need the . As we know them from the UK we know that we are going to have a great time The villa has everything you need A real home from home We are coming back for third visit next June I think that says it all. Vamos is a lovely village we spent most nights in the square where you get nibbles with your drinks and plenty of company. We hired a car for the duration of our holiday and went to lots of fabulous places. Bali is a lovely place along the coast past Rethimnon, it has four lovely secluded bays. The one place that must be visited is Lautro, called Mama Mia by the locals. It can only be reached by boat from Chora Sfakion on the south of the island , well worth the visit it is beautiful. Thanks Judy and Mike our flights are booked for next year.

“Place and People Second to None”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Firstly the location and Villa, Vamos beautiful, Villa perfect, clean, superbly equipped, views to tick of your bucket list!!!!!! The villa is easily accessible, and there is so much to do in the area, from shopping in Chania/Rethyimon to relaxing in Alymarida. But the best of all are your host Mike & Judy they are there if you need them, but never intrude, they make you feel so welcome, so if you are looking to stay in Crete, this is the place

“Luxury villa”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I loved this villa its position is superb and the pool is fantastic it's like an infinity pool because of the views ,the facilities in the villa are all anyone would need for great holiday and the welcome pack is better than the normal pack you get in a villa and one morning the owner gave us freshly laid eggs for breakfast. if you are a sun worshipper the villa has places to sit in the sun all round the villa and equally lots of shaded areas this is a very well designed property and its a credit to the owners Mike and Judy . We were two couples on holiday who thoroughly enjoyed our stay so much so we have booked again for next year. Please note there are steps at the villa so not suitable for wheelchairs.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a lovely stay at the villa. Absolutely stunning views, surrounding gardens and a lovely inviting pool. A very private and peaceful place to stay and relax in. The village of Vamos was delightful, especially the selection of restaurants. The towns of Chania and Rethymnon were only a short drive away. Couldn't recommend it enough! Will definitely be coming back.

“Great hosts - and a fantastic location.”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at Villa Nathalia with two friends for a week at the end of April. Mike and Judy are fantastic hosts who made us feel really welcome during our stay. They provided a lovely welcome pack and excellent recommendations for things to do. The villa was kitted out with everything we needed for a relaxing stay and it was great to have a private pool to cool off in. We would definitely recommend staying at Villa Nathalia and will hope to return one day in the not too distant future!
