Perfect, relaxing location for our family holiday
Our two families stayed for 2 weeks in the Alkyoni villa. There were 9 of us in total and the villa was the perfect size.
Irini, the owner, couldn't do enough for us, including ordering taxis when we struggled to be understood on the phone! The villa was very clean and Irini offered to clean the villa at very regular intervals (more than we have ever been offered in previous holiday accommodation) although we asked that it only be cleaned twice during our stay so that we didn't have to leave the villa.
The location of the villa is very rural (apparently the area is known as the 'dry village' by locals) so a car is required to get around. We got taxis into the local town most nights which cost approx 15 Euros each way. However the rural location did mean that during the days we had complete privacy and no concerns about making too much noise.
We had a wonderful holiday here and would definitely recommend it to others.
Amazing Crete villa
With a 2 family holiday planned we needed a villa with ample space and found this gem. This villa Surpassed our expectations and had plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to offer. The villa was spotless and cleaned regularly and even provided beach towels which was a great touch. Kids cots and high chairs were also provided and gated stairs meant the young kids were safe. The outside pool was a good size for all and the additional games room was perfect for the kids. We had a few BBqs early evening too which was also nice.
Location wise was ideal being just off the beaten track but a 5 min drive to nearby beach, shops and restaurants. Secluded villa meant you had privacy too. Irini was a fantastic host and clearly looks after the villas. I would recommend to anyone looking to visit Crete as this place ticks all the boxes and then some.
Incredible place and perfect hosting !
The house is exactly as described on the ad : big, very clean and well maintained.
Rooms are quiet and big.
Kitchen is full of accessories
The pool is amaaaaazing ! We spent hours till night playing with kids and enjoying it after the long walks we did in Samaria, Chania or Balos lagoon.... ANd the garden is a really quiet place to have a rest.
Pfiou ! Incredible holidays we had there !
Irini's hosting is just perfect : carefulness, always smiling and available when we had questions. Really a beautiful person !
I hope we will be able to come back some day. No question about where to go.
What a lovely villa experience!!
We have enjoyed a fabulous stay in Crete and we couldn’t have wished for a better base than this villa. Over the years we have rented many private villas but this is certainly one of the best. The facilities and cleanliness are second to home. We enjoyed some lazy days by the pool, which the kids loved. Thanks to Irini for your hospitality and for maintaining the villa to very high standards. We would love to come back again in the future!
A high quality house, purpose made for holidays,
glorious poolside, eating in, or outdoors by the fabulous grill BBQ area. An exceptinally quiet area, but minutes from the noisy beaches and bustle of Reythemon only makes you happier to return. Lovely hosts who gave good advice and kept the house and grounds spotless.
The walk from the door out to the gorge and its contrasting greenery is a secret bonus. Indianna Jones meets the lost valley of dinosaurs ! and its eccentric "banana cafe" must surely be Cretes best kept secret...
Wonderful villa- great service!
We have had a wonderful time here! We enjoyed the swimming pool and the game room a lot. The weather was amazing and always sunny! We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay.. The villa is close to everything: shops, beach, supermarket. We will certainly come back. Thank you for everything Irini!
