Amazing Whouaa
Une vue splendide entre mer et montagnes ! Pas un endroit à touristes ! Vie simple et locale où on s'est régalé de poissons grillés. La maison est très confortable le seul regret piscine non chauffée et attention accès à revoir il faudrait ajouter une rampe d'escalier pour accéder à la maison.

It was better
It is a realy good equipped house at a calm street in the mountains only 10minutes away from restaurants with super nice views an good food and really empty super nice beaches with crystal clear calm water. The service (from etouri and from the owner!) was brilliant. Little gifts surprised us really! Due to the 4 air conditions the heat 35 degrees was no problem. Even outside the wind always gave us a fresh feeling so that we could spend time on the the huge terrace or in the fresh pool. But you need a car! We will come back one day.

Beautiful Villa, great views and amazing hosts!
We spent an amazing week with our 5 children in Galini Home 2. The owner warmly welcomed us and kindly accomodated us with an extra bed for our teenager. Very appreciated. Great pool for the children and nice deck with great views. The house is clean, functional and cozy. 10 min by car from the most beautiful beaches of Crete, far from mass tourism. Thank you to the owner, Kostas and his team for all the attentions and services. We had an absolute memorable stay!

Modernes, ruhig gelegenes Ferien(Doppel-)haus mit Pool
Das Ferienhaus ist noch sehr neu und mit moderner EInrichtung ausgestattet. Im Haus befinden sich zwei Bäder, sowie ein Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbett und eines mit zwei einzelnen Betten. Die Couch im Erdgeschoß könnte als Schlafcouch genutzt werden. Für Selbstversorger ist alles wichtige vorhanden (Kaffeemaschine, Toaster, Herd mit Backofen, Kontaktgrill, Kühlschrank, Gefrierschrank, Spülmaschine, Waschmaschine, Bügelbrett, Bügeleisen, Wäscheständer, Gasgrill). Alle drei Tage wird der Pool und das Haus gereinigt bzw. die Bettwäsche und Handtücher gewechselt. Der Inhaber und auch seine Mutter sind sehr zuvorkommen und um die Gäste besorgt. Bis Agios Pavlos oder Triopetra sind es 15 Minuten mit dem PKW. Nach Spili oder Agia Galini sind es etwa 20 Minuten. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten oder Tavernen sind nicht im direkten Umfeld. Es wird auf jeden Fall ein PKW benötigt.

Excellent villa with great views
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this villa. Ideal for three adults, and room for a fourth with plenty of space. The villa is very much as pictured in the photos and didn’t disappoint. It is very modern and well equipped with lovely views of the hills. Although the town of Agios Galini is only a 15 minute drive away, the villa is very remote which suited us. Agios Galini has good beaches and supermarkets, restaurants etc. And although the roads in the surrounding area are windy, you soon get used to them. Any problems are quickly sorted out and the service from Etouri Holidays and the owner, Mr Nondas, was friendly, professional and efficient. The villa serviced and cleaned during the week which was very much appreciated. The weather was hot and sunny in August, but we suffered from 3 days of the very strong Cretan Meltemi Winds – however no-one can predict the weather! If we were to return to Crete, we would certainly consider the same location.

Wonderful modern home with stunning views
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Galini and would return any time our travels take us back to Crete. The house is very much as shown on the pictures. Beautiful all new construction and very comfortably and stylishly furnished. There is ample space for a family of 4 (we have 2 teenagers) but the house is laid out to accommodate 6 if you're OK with 2 sleeping on the living room sofas which are large and comfortable enough for that purpose. Equipment leaves nothing to be desired for either. You will have a fully equipped kitchen so can do reasonable cooking for a 4-6 people family, a washing machine and air-conditioning if needed (we used it sparingly at night when the wind was too strong to leave the windows open). On the terrace there also is a gas BBQ. Furnishings on the terrace allow you to either lounge at the beautiful pool or have an al-fresco meal - the table is a bit small for a full-blown outdoor dining experience but if you're happy with serving food inside and stepping outside to eat, it's wonderful and allows you to enjoy the stunning view over the hills/mountains down to the sea. The location is great if you prefer the quiet and don't mind driving 10-15 min to get to the beaches, dining or shopping. Southern Crete doesn't seem to be the most touristy part of the island, so if you like to step out of your accommodation and be right in the center of the hustle and bustle, this is not the place for you. If however you enjoy quiet, nature, beautiful uncrowded beaches with wonderful cristal clear water and small tavernas with great local food, this is a wonderful place to spend a vacation. The owner and the manager were extremely friendly and helpful with anything that we asked for. Service with the rental included a quick cleaning and change of towels, bathrobes and linens every 3 days as well as pool cleaning. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.

Confortable villa with gorgeous view
Everything is made to host you greatly. The villa is near an old traditional village, close to nice beaches. They change the linen during the stay and clean our home. Beds are very comfortable and the decoration is pretty. An ideal place to stay in the southern Crète. Thank you to the owners and Sophia.

Nice and modern place, friendly owner
The house is new, modern and nice and clean. We particularly liked the sunny terrace. The owner is friendly and helpful and we really liked the delicious welcome cake his mother had baked for us. We appreciated that there was a stock of everything you need such as toilet paper, washing powder, dishwasher tabs etc. We felt very much at home and warmly recommend the place.

About the neighbourhood
Our villa is located on a foothill of a mountain, in a traditional and peaceful village of Kato Saktouria in southern Crete, offering tremendous views of Libyan sea and surrounding mountains. The area around the village is totally in nature and quiet and you will be able to relax and feel “away from it all” from the first moment of your arrival. It is one of the best locations if you seek to stay away from the tourist areas of Crete and also visit the amazing natural beaches of south Crete such as Agios Pavlos, Agia Galini, Triopetra and many more! One of the closest big village with range of amenities such as shops, bakeries, taverns and supermarkets is the picturesque fishing village of Agia Galini, around 15 minutes drive from the villa. Additionally the well known village of Spili which also has all the amenities and a health centre is located around 20 minutes drive away. If you like adventure, the location also offers the advantage of exploring the unique natural environment of Crete’s inland. Explore the villages, interact with the locals, find taverns with real Cretan cuisine and products, walk in the gorges around or find some totally isolated beaches! We will be happy to make you suggestions and directions for places which only locals know about them.
