“Just Perfect !!”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We've been in this great house at the end of October, during one week.
We were there with friends and there children, so 4 adults and 5 children from 6 to 15 years old.

The photos that you can find of the villa show the reality.
Fabio is very kind: you can ask him what you need and he'll do his best; that's the same with the owner, Giorgio, and the housekeeper, Eva.

We've really enjoyed our vacation in Crete, certainly due to this villa and Fabio, Giorgio and Eva!

We've only one regret: we should have stayed one more week!

Anyway, we'll try to come back next year.

“Perfect vacation on Crete in September 2016”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed on Winehill Villa in Platanias for 16 days in September 2016. From the very first moment on arrival till the departure we were very satisfied with the villa: green, modern, clean, fully equipped, spacious etc. Perfectly located on a hill with a fantastic sea view, a lot of restaurants and shops in just 5 min walk distance. Fabio is a great host: friendly, attentive, helpful. The fridge was fully filled with foods and drinks for our arrival. Our kids enjoyed playground: kids house, swing, children's slide. Adults played billiards, basketball and made BBQ.

Villa's owner visited us several times and brought sweets and goodies. He is a very nice and friendly person.

We will definitely return to Winehill Villa in future.

“Excellent Villa, Wonderful Holiday.”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had never gone for a villa holiday before, but this exceeded all expectations. Fantastic villa, great position, wonderful facilities. We enjoyed playing table tennis + the basket ball court. It was lovely having the maid Eva arriving each morning to keep the villa spotless.

“The most incredible place I have ever had the pleasure of staying in”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My mother booked this villa for a week for our entire family (8 people in total with ages ranging from 9 - 69 years of age). I looked at pictures of the villa online before I left and thought it looked beautiful but seeing it in real life surpassed all of my expectations, it was breathtaking. When you walk into the villa you are immediately struck by the view from the outside infinity pool area, they are stunning. The pool itself is amazing and very well maintained. The master bedroom is fit for a king and even the smaller bedrooms are comfortable, modern and a delight to sleep in. The kitchen is any cooking enthusiasts dream and the large open living space was modern and beautifully decorated. The villa features a lower level which contains a big screen with an xbox, a pool table and a gym. Unfortunately, we did not make much use of these facilities due to the fact that the weather was too nice to be inside. Out the back of the villa was an outdoor summer kitchen complete with woodfire oven and BBQ, a small playground and a basketball court. When we arrived we were greeted by the property owners who were an extremely friendly couple, and the property manager Fabio. Together, they showed us around the villa and taught us how to operate all of the appliances. They were happy to answer any questions we had and were very helpful. Fabio was a dream to deal with, he arrange for cars to pick us up and drop us to the airport, recommended excursions and restaurants and was very responsive with emails. We were also greeted with a welcome pack containing bread, milk, eggs, cheese, butte, fresh fruit, vegetables, wine, vodka, gin, basically everything you could possibly need. We had fantastic intentions of doing a lot of activities in the area and taking some trips, however, the villa was such a pleasure to be in that we barely ever wanted to leave it.

“Great Villa with amazing views”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Gorgeous Villa with amazing views. We stayed in this villa mid July and found it the perfect get away. We appreciated the maid service in the morning and the friendly and helpful service by Fabio Migliari. The villa is perfect for either a big family or a large group. The views and sunset is stunning.
