Back in Paleochora is back to Villa Rena Kristina.
It is our 6th stay at Villa Rena Kristina since 2010.
It is still fantastic to stay at Villa Rena Kristina.
The apartments are big and have big balconies.
And the apartments have all you need.
Everything is clean and well-maintained.
The area around the buildings are beautiful with flowers and trees.
The location is perfect, close to Chalikia Beach and close to some of the best restaurant's and cafe's in the town.
The host, Kathrin, is so nice and friendly and helpful, without being intrusive.

“Lovely spacious apartments in Paleochora”

We have been coming to Paleochora since 2003 and for the last five years we have stayed at Villa Rena Kristina, sometimes with our family and in more recent years on our own. We have found the family to be most welcoming and we have been very spoilt over the years.

Villa Rena Kristina are extremely well maintained, the apartments are regularly cleaned during your stay and if you need anything you only have to ask. The outside maintenance is excellent and the gardens are full with flowers.

The town has two beaches and the nearest is but a minute's walk. The nearest cafe serves an excellent breakfast menu so there is no need to cater for yourself and there are many restaurants all within easy walking distance. The centre of the town has changed little over the years and this ensures the charm of Paleochora remains.

I come to Paleochora with my family since I was 5 y old.
I consider this little village my home and my paradise.
My heart longs for my summer vacations in Paleochora all year long.

And of course the places we stayed changed within the years.
But for about 10 y now we stay at Villa Rena... why? because it´s the paradise within the paradise.
The whole family of the owners is open, welcoming and lovable.
There is no wish they can´t fulfill, nothing they´d deny... they absolutely try anything to make your stay as pleasant as possible!
Just ask if there´s anything you need!!

The apartments are cleaner than clean and the lady comes twice per week to also refresh the towels and sheets.
The view from the front apartments goes right to the sea, which is not one minute away by walking.
Right at the next corner you´ll find the best breakfast in town at "Votsalo", if you don´t want to prepare anything in your huge kitchen.

Anything else you might be looking for you´ll find in the distance of a stroll... nothing is far in Paleochora really ;)
If your looking for the ultimate relaxed and enjoyable holiday destination, try Paleochora and stay at Villa Rena! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT :D

Everything was wonderful. The villa was exceptionally clean and was even cleaned half way through our stay. The owners were extremely hospitable and helpful. We had a lovely eight days in Paleochora and hope we will be able to come again.

“Still first class apartments”

person found this review helpful

My wife and I stayed at Villa Rena Kristina 21 days in sep.-oct. 2013 and 23 days in sep.-okt. 2014.
It is a wonderful place.
Located in a placid area where the road to Anidri begins.
50 meters to Chalikia Beach with the best swimming-water in the town.
The apartments are big with 1-3 big balconies, and the apartments have everything, you need.
The cleaning - inside and outside - is excellent.
The host - Kathrin - is exceptional nice and helpful.
I have earlier made a review for 2010, 2011 and 2012.
This review confirm, that Villa Rena Kristina still has an exceptional high standard.
It is a 5-star place.
Tips: Make your reservation early.
We have made our reservation for october 2015.

Arrived in Paleochora with no accommodation and having spent 1 night at a poor location we were looking for better. From the outside Rena Christina looks very smart. This continues in side. Everything was better quality than the usual in Crete rooms. The paving between the 2 buildings was beautiful and washed down at least twice a day. The furnishings were good quality. Even the toilet rolls were noticeably better ! Although there were only 2 of us we were offered an apartment with 2 double bedrooms with an appropriate reduction in rent. We had a lovely balcony overlooking the bay. The accommodation is ideally situated near the end of the promenade near to where the stony beach starts. It was only a short walk to the centre and this was along the prom past many of the restaurants.
