“Fantastic location in a lovely part of town”

We found Valanti’s House to be the perfect base for us to stay in Rethymno. It’s right in the heart of the old town, which in my opinion is the nicest part of Rethymno with pretty streets and a plethora of great restaurants within walking distance.
The apartment is bigger than it appears in the photos and has everything you need, although we ended up barely using anything as we ate out every night (an unexpected bonus considering we have 20 month old. The restaurants are very child friendly). The place has excellent air conditioning, which is important as obviously Crete can get very hot . We also found it to be pretty child friendly as doors allow you to close off rooms and stairs to inquisitive toddlers.
Despite being located in a relatively busy part of the old town, the apartment is very quiet. We found the roof terrace to be great for breakfast in the morning as it was peaceful with a nice view of the Fortezza, while the balcony which overlooked the street was great in the evening, giving us a feeling of being out and part of things (whilst being in and looking after our baby!).
While very close to the coast, the apartment is probably a 10 min walk to the main beach which is great, although we also used the car to drive to some of Crete’s other stunning beaches across the island.
Anna and Nick gave us a lovely welcome on arrival, while Valanti passed by and said hello to us from the street us we sat on the balcony one evening.
We REALLY enjoyed our holiday in Crete and this apartment very much helped. Would recommend to anyone who doesn’t need to be RIGHT on the beach and while not being one for going back to the same place, we loved it so much we’d seriously consider staying here again if we return to Crete.

We agreed that we could live permanently in this house! It really does have everything you need and the kitchen is large and well equipped. As we were leaving we met Nick and Anna again and I said to Anna that we thought it was a great place to stay. She was so pleased to hear it and I think genuinely wants people to enjoy their stay and takes a lot of pride in the house. It's lovely being able to step out of the door and get food from the bakery next door or a crepe from over the street. The streets of rethymnon feel very safe and the house is located perfectly for exploring the streets of the old town. The wifi works very well. We got quite lost driving in rethymnon so would advise people to try and get hold of a map of the town or maybe even ask nick or Valanti if they could email or send one prior to the holiday.

Fantastic!!! We are so happy we booked Valentis House for our stay in Crete. It was immaculate, spacious, and very well appointed. My family of four (two teenagers) was thrilled to have so much room, two bathrooms, a washing machine, and a fantastic central location in the middle of Old Town Rethymno with a balcony overlooking a lively street. The interior of the apartment was very quiet despite the location.

Our arrival was later than we anticipated, and the hosts were very accommodating.

The hosts were very gracious and welcoming, and available if we needed them.

The price was reasonable, as well.

We hope to go back again, and recommend Valentis house without reservation.

If there is one thing I would mention that may be an issue for people, especially if they are larger or used to American-style beds, it's that the beds are small (4 twins), and less cushioned than we are used to. Also, there are stairs that would be difficult for mobility-impaired people.

Located in the car free area of the old town this apartment is central to everything going on there. The apartment has two large levels, a balcony and a roof terrace with views of the Fortezza.
We were met by Nick and his wife on arrival who showed us the amminities and had even left a dozen eggs in the fridge. The facilities in the apartment were as you would expect in your own home. it was great watching the street wake up on a morning from the balcony as we ate our omelettes!
The apartment itself was faultless however there was a little noise into the small hours from the nearby clubs but nothing to disturb your nights sleep.

The photos don't do it justice as it is a much larger appartment than we realised. It was a lovely base and a short walk to the free parking and we were away for the day. At night we could see the Fortezza lit up from the roof terrace, which was a lovely place to have our breakfast in the morning sunshine. The apartment was suprisingly quiet at night even though it was next to all the bars and restaurants. Everything you could ever need was in the kitchen if you fancied cooking up a storm and the balcony overlooking the creperie was a favoured place to sip a glass of wine. Tremendous hosts who were charming and welcoming. Can't fault this place, what a find!
