My family and I were lucky to spend 2 wonderful weeks at Knossos Estate, we had the left hand villa and it was totally perfect.
We really can't thank Maria, Manos and Anna enough for making sure we had everything we needed for our stay, always on hand but never intrusive, nothing was too much trouble.
The Villa itself was spotlessly clean and huge with breathtaking views of the mountains to the left and the ocean to the front, (we sat on the balcony and experienced the most amazing sunsets!) all this set in a great location for exploring the many gorgeous beaches Crete has to offer.
The pool was huge and set in beautiful gardens, which even has a play area for small children, they really have thought of everything.
Thank you again for your warm hospitality and look forward to seeing you all again, we will defiantly be back!!!!!

We have just got back from a 2 week holiday at Knossos Estate (Pasafai villa)
The villa itself is perfect - spacious and spotlessly clean, the grounds are perfection, a huge pool, play area for the children and breathtaking views with some of the best sunsets we have seen!
Crete is a stunning Island and this villa is a perfect base to explore it from
Huge thanks go to Maria for making us feel so welcome and always being on hand to help with anything, she really goes the extra mile to ensure you are having a great time,
Manos and Anna too are always working tirelessly to ensure the grounds and villa are kept to the highest standards
Thank you all, we can't wait to stay again!!

“Easter Holidays”
Reviewed 21 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed at the Villa for one week with Friends (9 adults, 1 child and 2 infants) over the Easter Holidays.
Great villa, with a stunning view and a stone's throw away from Rethymno's center (5m drive).
A real shame we couldn't make the most of the pool due to temperatures being a tad chilly at this time of the year but perfect Base Camp to explore what Crete has to offer, including all amenities you might need.
Special thank you to Maria for being there for our every needs.
Need to come back when it gets warmer!

“Amazing villas with amazing hosts!!!”

Stayed for a week over Easter. The host Maria was on hand with every enquiry and even helped us organise an evening party with traditional Greek musician/singer. The villas were exceptionally maintained and cleaned inside and out. Location is ideal to explore the whole island and plenty of shops and amenities close by for the last minute Greek coffee and cake ;-) can't recommend enough. Thank you for a memorable stay. X

“Outstanding Holiday ”
Reviewed 27 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A highly recommended villa with everything you need. Warm welcome and great service by Lina & team... really appreciated. Facility is awesome and in great condition, kitchen fully equipped and the whole property offers plenty of space and cosy spots everywhere. We - a group of 11- really enjoyed it, especially the pool. The pictures in all the collaterals are real. Location is close enough to the city but also quite. Car required though. Good value for the money. Thanks for everything.

“Knossos Estate Villa”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a fantastic time and the week wasn't long enough. Nobody wanted to go home. The whole family (8 adults and 4 small children) felt at home from the first minute. Lina and her team were great and fulfilled all our wishes. You couldn't ask for more. The villa was exactly as described on the website with no disappointments. Just one thing - the mosquito nets on the doors and windows were not up to scratch and certainly need to be replaced. But all on all it was a most memorable holiday. The pool is great and the kids were occupied there or using the playground from morning to evening.
I'm sure we'll be back soon. Thanks Lina and team. Take care and all the best.
