Superb Villa, wonderful views including the sunset, above all expectations
We spent two weeks at Villa Kleanthi in the mountains of Crete. The house is amazing with views and sunsets you never tire of. We were greeted by the owners who went out of there way to make us all feel at home with a lovely welcome, nothing was too much trouble. The villa is huge and very clean. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to prepare meals, a welcome basket, loads of games/toys, Dvds, books and the essential laundry that you always need when traveling with a family. The rooms are private and the grounds are beautifully manicured. It is a slice of the real Crete, where you can get away from it all and feel like the king of the mountain. Magic, thank you Mrs. Marina, Kostas and all at Etouri.

Outstanding villa with wonderful view
We had a great time at villa Kleanthi! Our first impression was dominated by the beautiful house and the warm welcome of the owners. We arrived in the evening and the owners had prepared some typical Greek pastries for us. After giving us a tour through the villa and showing all facilities we even had a raki all together. Besides this pleasant hospitality, we like to stress the owner's and tourist service team's offering of information. There was plenty of tourist brochures about Crete and local places. Furthermore, we got a book, that provides all required information about the villa. Moreover there was even an application for mobile phones, telling all you need to know about the villa, restaurants, attractions... Of course the onwer and tourist service team could be contacted at any time (although there was no need to for us). Cleaning of the villa was operated every 3 days. Talking about the villa itself, there was really nothing to complain about. Every room was well-kept, spacious and fully equiped. At this point we want to point out the equipment of the kitchen, which provides devices we do not even have at home. Excellent kitchen! The garden and pool area was another highligt, that was even better than shown on any pictures. In the evening we used the barbecue several times (there was even a package of charcoal, provided by the owners). The sunset over the mountains is great. Finally the pictures give a good impression of how the property is like (and being there is even better). Crete is a beautiful island. We visited several beaches and cities. But due to the size of the island and mountained countyside (which is impressive) it might take some time to reach different places when starting from the villa. Rethymno was about 25 minutes away by car and to the next supermarket it takes you about 10 minutes. There is a tavern (Goules) close to the villa (20 minute walk) which is really awesome. As recommended by the villas owner, we had dinner at ther taverna for 3 times. Food and Kosta (runs the taverna) should not be missed!!! To sum up: come here and enjoy the villa and Crete.

Lovely villa with a lot of privacy
On a quiet place, in a little village Kare, you will find this very lovely complete villa. Everything you need is there. We visited the villa with 2 adults and 3 teenagers. All the rooms has nice beds and a bathroom. With the "master" bedroom comes a bathroom with bubblebath and a complete shower... The views are beautiful!. The swimming pool is (not warmed) nice and in the veranda you will sit and drink your pre-dinner drink or play some cards (we did!)... It's a lovely place. In the area there is a very lovely restaurant Goules. About 1.5 kilometers from the villa in Goulediana you will find this no nonsense taverna where Kostas, the owner, really makes you feel welcome. We have visited this taverna many times! In Rethymnon, you will find many shops and taverna's. It is a very various, nice place with a lot of tavernas. We also visited the Beach club BajaBeach in Rethymnon a view times. The rest of Kreta, you have to explore. For everyone there is something to do!!! We will come back again!

Marvellous Stay At A Remarkable Property
We had the pleasure of staying here for two weeks in July. The villa is beautiful and have been well-maintained. They have taken care to tend to so many details for their guests and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. This fantastic villa is ideally located outside of the hustle and bustle of Rethymno, just a short 20min drive into the hills towards Spili. The villa is well located, outside noisy Rethymno but not too much as to have quick access to city amenities while having peace of mind enjoying amazing view from the heights with fantastic Taberna just round the corner in Goulediana village. The house is ideal for family/friends group looking for relaxed time. Ample spaces, gorgeous barbecue and oven space, great pool size and location. Accommodation was immaculate, clean bedding and towels every few days and the villa was cleaned throughout every few days. Pool and outside space was clean, spacious and plenty of sun loungers, covered area was ideal for eating during the day as it provided some shade. Booking this was easy and the communication with the owners was excellent. We would like to thank the people in Etouri: Kostas and Sofia, as they were real helpful from booking, to recommendations they made. I would definitely recommend this villa.

It would be great to be back...
We enjoyed every second of our stay in this villa! Everything was excellent!! Very helpful and hospitable owners, they were ready to help us every second we need it. The villa is clean, well designed, re-do and has a lot of light. There are everything what you can need for holidays next to villa: a lot of supermarkets in 5-7 min drive, gas stations, tavernas ( especially in next village Goulediana (10 min walk) was absolutely fantastic 😍😍😍😍). Location is close to everything, but in the same time you are away from everybody. All our group are very thankful to owners and happy that we choose this villa for our holiday! Thank you Marina and Takis!
