We spent with four persons a week in this comfortable house. The house is well decorated.
Everything was cleaned. When we arrived the host family welcomed us and showed us around.
On the table in the kitschen was a big basket mit lovely fruits and a bottle of wine, raki and olivoil.
Also at the followed days Mrs. Vasilikis brought us cakes and other delicious things.
When we left the house we got two big bottles of olivoil.
It is quite area. We loved to sit outside for breakfast or in the evening by a glass of wine.
We hope we come back one time.

Panoramic views of the sea and mountains.
Lovely, welcoming owners always happy to help with queries and plying us with traditional Cretan food!
Thank you Villa Eleftherna, we hope to come back one day.

“Fantastic holiday in beautiful and welcoming villa”

I travelled in a group comprising of four couples and each and every one of us loved Villa Eleftherna! Our holiday started on the best note possible when we turned up to a wonderful looking villa and welcoming hosts. The host family welcomed us, showed us around and gave us some tips for our stay in Eleftherna. Furthermore, they had prepared a basket of fresh fruit and local drinks, honey and Olive Oil. A really nice small detail that epitomised the whole Villa. The Villa itself was of perfect size, well decorated (maintaining modern features and character), extremely clean and had a nice garden with fresh herbs, roses and a lemon tree!!! Also, the pool was a good size and was cleaned daily. The setting was also just as brilliant. Set in a small local village in expansive hilly countryside, there were plenty of walks, small tavernas and local shop nearby. Further afield, Eleftherna is not too far from the main resort of Rethymnon which is more touristy but well worth a visit. Also, some of the villages en route are well worth a stop for something to eat!

On a personal level, I was foolish enough to forget my watch and left it in my room. Sure enough, about 10 days later, it had been posted back to England undamaged and the hosts did not even want any money for postage!

Overall, we had a fantastic holiday and a large part of this was down to the fantastic accommodation and welcoming hosts at Villa Eleftherna (Mother Vasilikis also baked us a delicious morning cake!!!)

Our family included children, adults and grandparents just loved this place and these people. The villa was marvelous, very clean and room for everyone. It was locaded to very beautiful countryside but not too far from sightseeings, beach and Rethymnos lovely town. In kitchen there`s everything what you need for making dinner for a big group and if something doesn`t work villas owner will help you to fix it. We felt so warmly welcomed by owners family and hospitality what we had was the best ever! Children just loved to play in beautiful garden and to see lot of animals around. Eleftherna is a small village with friendly people. There is a little grocery store and taverna to have a drink or ice cream with local people. Bikes were only extra fun for us: trip to next village with bicycles was unforgettable. We will come back!

My husband and I, our son and his Greek girlfriend spent a lovely week at Villa Eleftherna in July. Not only was the villa and its views absolutely beautiful but the location was excellent. We were warmly welcomed by Georgios and his family, they left us a large basket of fresh fruit, a bottle of wine, olive oil,raki and honey.
Hania and Rhethymno are worth a visit with their beautiful venetian ports. Rhethymno has many lovely places to eat around the harbour. A day trip to Mon Preveli and the beaches in the south is also a good. Knossis is an easy hour drive away and mon Arkadi is well worth seeing. The nearby town of Margarites has many ceramic shops and a fantastic taverna with amazing views and food ( business card in villa). The minoan sites near Eleftherna are also interesting.
We thank Georgios for all his helpful advice, his happy company, the many chats in Greek with Alexia and the amazing BBQ that his whole family cooked for us at the villa.

As most already wrote, we can only confirm the different reviews. The house is very well maintained by it s owner, as well as the garden. Upon arrival, we got a basket of fruits, a bottle of raki and wine, a port of honey and a nice set of flowers. During our stay, the house was cleaned twice a week. The owner noticed we didn't had a pump for our inflatables and unexpectedly, he delivered one. The place is really unique, as we think it is the only place in Eleftherna where you can rent a villa. The surroundings are nice, the place is quit. Everything is just positive.
