Lovely villa near Rethimno
Lovely villa in a small village near Rethimno. Our host was very helpful and the villa was spotless.
Dear David , thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Really great villa in a lovely village just inland from Rethymno. Spacious and beautifully appointed property with a fantastic pool area. Car is essential to explore the lovely island of Crete. Would very much recommend this villa for a family holiday
Dear Andrew, thank you so much for recommending our villa to other travellers and we hope to have you back soon! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Beautiful house in a stunning area
We felt welcome the instant we walked into this house. The owner was there to meet and greet us, with a lovely lunch prepared and waiting, very welcome after our journey. The house has loads of personality with the owner's flair for design evident throughout: unlike many holiday homes which, in an attempt to appeal to all tastes appeal to none, this one is thoughtfully and imaginatively decorated. Everything was spotlessly clean. The house is located in a small village which, despite being close to Rethymno, feels like rural Greece: the people are very friendly and the pace is nice and slow. Driving back from an early morning walk in Rethmyno one morning, we had to stop the car because an eagle was perched in the middle of the road. The village has three restaurants, all good: our favourite was Mylonas for the quality of the food, the incredible value and, most of all, the friendliness of the staff. This was our second time in Crete and our second time dealing with Valia at ThinkVilla and she is a complete star: it's like having a personal assistant when on holidays!
Dear Ray, thank you so much for taking the time to write such an amazing review about our Villa! We appreciate your loyalty and your continued trust in Think Villa. It was our pleasure having you as guests! Please don't hesitate to let us know if you're visiting again soon. Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Excellent for families with small children
Very well equipped villa. Nice location in a village up in the mountains with a nice view of the sea. We have two small children and it felt very safe. They even left us some toys which are always better than the toys from home!
Dear Jo, thank you for taking the time to review your stay in our Villa and we really appreciate your lovely comments! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Fabulous villa, would love to stay there again.
The villa was very comfortable, ideally placed near the North coast, within travelling distance of all of the major towns / cities - we visited Chania, Rethymno and Heraklion, all are worth a day trip.
All of the facilities within the villa were as described and excellent. The owner lived nearby and was enormously helpful - she even left us food and drink in our fridge for breakfast and lunch!
There were a couple of lovely restaurants within walking distance of the villa which we enjoyed each evening at a sensible price.
A cleaner came twice a week and the property was very well maintained.
This was easily the best villa we've stayed in and the customer service was perfect. Can't wait to go back!
Dear Lisa, thank you for giving us a perfect rating and we hope to welcome you again in our Villa! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Villa Nikolaos, is located in Roussospiti village, which is situated 10 minutes away by car, from the city and beach of Rethymnon, and offers all the amenities guests will need, such as supermarkets, pharmacies, banks and ATM machines, restaurants, cafes and bars, a post office.
Roussospiti is known as “the balcony of Rethymno” thanks to its marvellous view of the area, the sea and famous White Mountains! Roussospiti is the most suitable place to totally relax and enjoy the stunning views of the area, as well as the nature! It’s ideal for walking, cycling and revitalising! It’s a vibrant village with a playground, two tavernas, a traditional cafe and a mini market! All within walking distance.
Through a scenic drive in the countryside you’ll be arriving at the village of Roussospiti, which has been classified as a preserved and traditional heritage site of great cultural value.
Roussospiti is also offered as a great base for exploring the nearby villages! The Mili Gorge can be found a few kilometres from Rethymno, along the Amari Road. The gorge has some beautiful ruins of old houses and water mills that once formed the village. Huge mulberry, cypress and nut trees grow wild along the gorge’s edge. At the top of the gorge there is a small taverna where you can sit and sample some Cretan dishes whilst enjoying the view. There are also a several small ponds and a picnic area. Also, the picturesque village of Chromonastiri, also a a preserved and traditional settlement, is very close to Roussospiti! Furthermore, in the nearby village of Saint Irene (Agia Irini) there is the homonymous old Monastery, which is considered to date back to the 14th century. After restoration works that started in 1989, the monastery was given a new life due to the eager activities of the nuns.
Additionally, from the village you can easily reach the highway leading to Chania and Heraklion cities.
