“Beautiful villa with wonderful outdoor spaces”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We recently stayed at Nikos' villa with my extended family for three weeks. There were six of us in total including my elderly grandmother but we were all very comfortable in the house. The fact that there is a bedroom downstairs makes the villa much more accessible for those with limited mobility which is great.

The real draw of this villa though is the outdoor spaces. There are three outdoor eating areas in total which means that you can rotate throughout the day to follow the sun or the shade as per your preference. The large table area round the back can also accommodate a group of approximately 12 people. The pool was really lovely as well with large steps leading into the pool - as oppose to a ladder - make it more accessible for those with limited mobility and also provide a nice seating area if you're just looking to cool off a little bit.

The villa was kept very clean throughout our stay with somebody coming to clean the pool, change the linens and the towels every few days throughout our stay. Nikos himself was also very responsive throughout the three weeks, quickly resolving any issues or questions that arose throughout the three weeks.

The location of the villa itself is also great, out enough of the way to offer more tranquility than in Rethymno itself whilst still being close enough to only be about a 15 minute car journey away from city centre and only about 30 minutes away from a number of great beaches. One thing I would say is that you really must have a car or some kind of vehicle to stay here as there are no pavements so walking anyway is highly impractical. Having said this, you can get a taxi into Rethymno for about €15 but in the long-haul this might end up as the more expensive option.

Finally, Nikos and his family were really the perfect hosts, even offering to come round and cook us dinner towards the end of our stay which was a great way to end the trip. As an added bonus, Nikos' mother is a fantastic cook and we kept ourselves fed for a few days on the abundant leftovers.

Really cannot recommend this place enough! It would be an excellent destination both for families and groups of friends.

“quiet, beautiful and frendly place!”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Beautiful villa in traditional Greek style! Conveniently located in Rethymno, 10 minutes by car. Taverns and supermarkets are located nearby. The villa is suitable for families with children and large groups. There is a lovely gazebo with barbecue, large outdoor areas and a beautiful swimming pool. The kitchen is well equipped, it has everything you need. Also has a small vegetable garden, where you can collect the vegetables and herbs. Very friendly and welcoming hosts. I particularly want to mention the evening of Greek cuisine, which held us. It was delicious! We hope to return to Villa!
