“Superb place for relaxing and visiting Krete”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The villa has everything for a relaxing holiday in Krete. The views are magnificent, the pool is great. All the rooms (place for 6 persons) have enough space and are air conditioned.
The house and its garden are well maintained (2 times a week).
For every problem you can contact the owner, who is very helpful and friendly.
The location of Rethymnon is good for visiting whole Krete. A rental car is necessary for visiting all the nice parts of the island.

Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

There isn't a lot of places that are actually better then the pictures but this villa is one of them! We as a family had an absolutely fabulous time here. Inside you have everything you need at a good hotel standard. A car is a must to take you in to town or the beach. But it's worth it. The beautiful garden with its fantastic view is just truly breathtaking.

“Amazing and Luxury Villa with Fantastic View!!”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My spouse and I chose the villa to meet and spend time with our family members from the USA, so in total 6 adults (the 7th was a baby of 6 months old!) arrived to stay and we really enjoyed our time in the villa. The villa is really fantastic! It has all the necessary equipment for a long and very comfortable stay, the kitchen is very well equipped and the living room has enough space for everybody and comfortable sofas. There is a spectacular view from the villa to the sea. The location of the villa is perfect too. It is isolated and private, but it will take your 3-5 minutes to go down to the city by car to reach beaches and all kind of shops. We loved the swimming pool of the villa much - it was very fresh and clean, a villa's staff came to clean it each second day of our stay. If you want to have a guaranteed quality and professional service together with ultimate privacy and a feeling of a luxury stay for a reasonable price - villa Givera is the place to choose for your vacation. We would definitely recommend it for renting either for a short or a long stay, you will enjoy each day of your stay in the villa. We are sure to think over to come again to villa Givera when we visit Crete next time again! Thanks a lot to Marina for all kinds of help and assistance!!!

“Beautiful Villa in the Hills”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My family stayed for three weeks at this lovely villa. The grounds were beautiful and well cared for, and the pool was a delight. There is lots of privacy, yet it is only a short drive to Rethymno. It is very quiet and away from any busy roads, which is important to us who live in a big city and want a peaceful vacation spot. Because the villa is close to the middle of Crete, we were able to make a day trip to almost any point on the entire island. However, many days we chose not to leave the property at all. We cooked many meals at the outside barbecue and spent many afternoons sitting by the pool. Our host, Marina, was very attentive and a perfect example of Cretan hospitality. She met us and led us to the house so we would not get lost, and there was fruit and other items for a nice breakfast the next morning, as well as Raki, wine, and an assortment of local products. Marina was always available to gracefully and kindly help us with any question or problem that arose.

“Fantastic place, exactly as described”

person found this review helpful

Beautiful setting and facilities.
A car is essential, but access to Rethminon is very easy.
The pool was rather cool in October but as with the whole villa beautifully maintained.
The BBQ was great for the nights we did not want to drive out for dinner.
You must try Zisis Restaurant - excellent food and excellent value - do not over order, portions are very generous.
Villa owner is very helpful and gave great advice on beaches and restaurants.
Would love to visit here again.
