Very nice villa with beautiful seaview

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful holiday at Villa Aetos. Everything was nice and clean and it was a perfect location to start trips to the surrounding area. Service was excellent. Little problems were solved immediately, there was always someone available to answer questions or suggest trips or restaurants. We even got fresh eggs from the owner's hens nearly every morning. This place is highly recommendable!!

Villa Aetos

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Aetos was amazing, everything we could have asked for. Lovely warm welcome from John, even though it was 1.00am when we arrived. The villa was perfect for us, me my husband and all our family 11 in total. The villa was very well equipped, maintained and clean, towels and bedding changed every 3 days. The gifts of fruit and vegetables from the gardens were lovely and the children were thrilled with the eggs every morning from the hens. A fifteen minute (we had young children) walk brought us to the lovely beach. Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Poppy's especially good , very friendly people. We would definitely visit again. Julie Ward and family

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Aetos is absolutely wonderful to stay in. The villa itself is spacious with all amenities and A/C. Great terrace with a lovely sea view. The pool is super with a nice sofa area next to it.

The people taking care of the villa are extremely nice, welcoming and helpful, - on top of other things, they've brought us homemade wine and cake and fruit and vegetables from their garden.

Can highly recommend a stay in the villa.

The villa is near beaches and is set in groves of olive trees, pomegranate, quince and lime trees. It is along a private gated drive. The swimming pool is clean and well-lit; at night there are romantic lights around it. The pool is not fenced so children in the area need to be supervised. The villa is spacious, well set-out with balconies outside most bedrooms and a sheltered patio dining area + good size barbecue, all overlooking the sea. Owners maintain it well, midweek clean & sheets and towels change and owner/agents friendly and on hand to help if needed. Children adore the hens in the field next to the house! Magical! Cars can be rented locally or at the airport + easy access to the E75 National route and a good assortment of shops, restaurants, bars locally in the area of Adelianos Campos. We would love to return!

A nice Villa with friendly and loving hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve had a wonderful week at Villa Aetos. The house was refurbished in 1996, and kept a really good standard. It contains everything a large group of people need. We were 13 persons, eight adults and 5 children aged from two until seven years old. The house is large enough so that everybody can get their own space, even being 13 people! We had our meals outside at the veranda downstairs. From here you have a lovely view over the ocean, and the lovely sunsets. The upstairs balcony is perfect for an evening nightcap! I also have to mention the great herb garden outside. Here you can pick tomatoes, cucumbers, lemmons, grapefruits, basil, rosemary and much more!! The outside pool is nice for both children and adults, 0,8 m until 1,8 m.

The family that lives next door to the villa is very helpful if you have any needs or questions. They also clean the villa once every week, and changes the linens and towles.

The villa is just a 10.min away by foot, 500 m, from a descent beach and tavernas. I say descent because it’s not the most children friendly beach. But you have Baja Beachclub, 5.min by car, and the lovely Panormos,15.min by care, right nearby. Both places is really nice for childrens!

For a good meal with friendly staff, I would recommend Poppys. This restaurant serves great food for little money, and it is just short walk from the villa.

So, even if you are young or old you will find everything to your liking at Villa Aetos!

The villa is located in “Adelianos Kampos” area, which is 7 km east from Rethymno town and around 500 meters from the beach. The long 15 km sandy beach of Rethymno lies in front of Adelianos Kampos stretches. In Adelianos Kampos you will find options for eating, shopping, entertainment and activities such as tennis court and kart tracks, most of them are reachable in around 500 meters distance. The beach is very well organised with umbrellas, lifeguards, changing rooms, showers, bars, etc. It is very popular for its infrastructure of the water sports and beach sports. The sea is shallow but often wavy, like all open beaches of north Crete. Sea turtles lay their eggs on this vast beach and that is why you might see some marked points with ropes and signs. Next to Adelianos Kampos and before the town of Rethymno, you will find the touristic area of Platanias, where you can find shops, restaurants, beach bars, clubs, supermarkets and everything else that you might need!

It is a great location for vacations in Rethymno, close to everything but also a quiet place to relax..!

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
