  • Great Family Villa

    "As the previous reviews say this was exactly as expected, from the photographs. The pool is really great, set in a very well landscaped garden of trees, flowers and vegetables offering lovely views of the ocean. The villa is top class - stylish, very clean and well maintained. We had food prepared and delivered by the owner for our arrival which was delicious and very welcoming after a journey with young children. Thereafter, the owner and the agency staff were always available at the end of the phone or email for anything needed. We tried one or two of the recommended places to eat in the pretty old town of Rethymno, which also didn't disappoint. The only little niggle which would have made our stay slightly more relaxing is a few more soft play mats within the house for the babies. Although the marble floors are lovely and cool they are not very forgiving when little ones, who are still a bit unsteady on the feet and knees, want to wander around. You also need to be watchful of the sharp edges on the coffee tables in the lounge too. Older children and adults obviously have no need to worry! All in all we had a wonderful family holiday, thank you so much for our lovely stay."

  • Idyllic slice of heaven in Crete, a secluded palace and a home.

    "I take a long long time deciding where to take my family each year, work is very tough on my time and the two weeks we get each summer is priceless to me. I like to have all the boxes ticked and not settle for missing wants. I stumbled upon Giorgos and his once old family residence while looking at villas in Crete. The villa is situated in a small, and very friendly village. Set in Beautiful gardens with fruit trees and vines, it is the real crowning jewel of the few villas in the surrounding area. If you were to be bought blindfolded to the villa and not leave your entire stay, I believe you may only see the lovely Maria (housekeeper) from your secluded rural fortress that is now home. You arrive and feel an immediate weight rise off you, all you need is only moments away with local restaurants, coffee shops and grocery stores; but then you shut the regal gate behind you and it as though you have stepped into your own private palace. Maria who looks after all house cleaning and keeps the house ship shape is a miracle work, or possibly magician. We stayed a full 2 weeks and she cleans everything top to bottom alternate days a week (all bedding, towels etc). What Amazed me was that unless you called out to say hello or needed something she was invisible. It is a huge house but with 8 in the family all in at the same time it was a great talent. The Villa/home/palace wow!!! I do not have the words to fully describe it. You see gentle hints of the past and warmth from what was originally a full time family home. History is in the brick as they say. Giorgos has beautifully combined the modern with the traditional which is exactly my style. From arrival you want for nothing, the house, LAKE of a pool and all surrounding gardens are so perfectly cared for and tendered we fell into the illusion it was home! PERFECT! Mr Giorgos, from booking to arrival and through stay he beyond exceeded all expectations. I have stayed in villas across the world for over ten years and never have I been met by such a warm, intelligent and caring man. The list of how he went above and beyond for us as a family is humbling and would embarrass such a gentleman. Simply the host and a good friend I am keen to see again soon. During your stay make use of mr Giorgos's knowledge of his island. We were sent on so many beautiful adventures and ideally no tourist noise or feel. This holiday for us was so much more, we found a home away from home and the best summer to date. �"

  • THE BEST BIRTHDAY VACATION

    "THE BEST BIRTHDAY VACATION THE FIRST TIME WE( 2 FAMILIES) GO TO A 6 DAY VACATION HOLYDAY. WE WERE 9 PEOPLE (5 CHILDREN) AND WE HAD THE BEST VACATION IN CRETE. THE VILLA IS LOVELY, CLEAN, MODERN, HAS A GOOD ENERGY DUE TO THE ARCHITECT OPEN DESIGN. THE WEATHER WAS GRATE, AND THE CHILDREN ENJOYED VERY MUCH IN THE HEATED POOL. WE HAD AN INSTANT CLICK WITH EIRINI, THE YOUNG OWNER AND EVERY THING WE ASKED WE GOT IN 10 MINUTES. (MORE TOWELS, SOPS TO WASHING MACHINE,WINE AND MORE.) EIRINI ALSO SURPRISED US WHEN SHE INVITED US THE CELEBRATE THE EASTER MEAL WITH HER FAMILY, AND MADE A BIRTHDAY CAKE TO JACOB WHO CELEBRATED ON THE SAME DAY. WE ALSO GOT 2 BOTTLES OF WINE PRODUCED BY HER FATHER, WHICH WAS VERY VERY GOOD ONE. WE ALSO SAT WITH HER AROUND THE MAP OF CRETE AND GOT GOOD RECOMMENDATIONS AND GOOD INTERACTION WHERE TO VISIT AND HOW TO GET THERE. WE HAD A WONDERFUL FULLY EQUIPMENT KITCHEN AND BBQ, SO WE MADE ALL OF OUR MEALS WHEN WE WERE IN. BREAKFASTS AND DINNERS. THE LOCATION OF RETHIMENON WAS VERY GOOD (1 HOUR FROM THE HERAQLION AIRPORT) AND THE VILLA 3-4 MINUTES DRIVING (1.5/KM) FROM SUPERMARKET AND VERY GOOD AND RICH BAKERY. WE REALLY RECOMMEND AND WE ARE EVEN THINKING OF COMING BACK IN THE SUMMER. Daniel and all the family"
