“Another excellent vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Visiting from the UK for the second year in a row.
Helen and Mike we fantastical and ever so accommodating nothing was too much trouble.
The last day looked as if it might be problematic as our flight was leaving late and the cleaners needed to be in, but not trouble for Helen to move us to the 4 bedroom villas for the afternoon so we could relax around the pool and continue to enjoy our holiday until we sent off for the airport.
I really hope they continue to be as successful as they have been for the last couple of years.
Thanks for all the fresh fruit Mike!!

We hired the largest of the three villas this year to celebrate a landmark birthday and were accompanied by our three adult children, our daughter in law and two year old granddaughter.
The ever helpful owners, Helen and Mike had supplied highchair, stroller and cot together with an assortment of toys for our granddaughter.
We have stayed in the smallest and the largest of the Villas on previous occasions and both are comfortable, immaculate, have great pools and great views of the coast and the white mountains.
Helen and Mike are the nicest, most hospitable hosts who will give advice and guidance on the area and all things Crete.
I guess that, given we've stayed at Old Fountain Villas five times prior to this visit, we quite like them. Actions speak louder than words!
Thanks again Mike and Helen. You know we will be back!

We travel as a family a lot, so we have a reasonably sound perspective on what we want. (2 kids 10 & 7).

Arriving at old fountain villas was magical, pitched on a hillside with views of the Mediterranean kissed by the moon, the arrival setting was a real treat after a long journey. The villa was beautiful and spacious. Mike and Helen made us welcome with local produce that was a nice touch...!

The villas are excellent and have all of the amenities you need with a wonderful pool that kept the kids busy and excited. I was so relaxed in the hillside setting, beautiful view and great weather. There are 3 villas on site but you would never know they are built in such a way that there is great solitude.

Our hosts were great people happy to please and always accessible they made our visit comfortable and also gave us lots of advice on the surrounding areas and attractions.

Chania is a lovely town architecturally rich and still feels like there are not too many tourists, in fact that feel surrounds the area. Beautiful and not too over populated.

So I write the review with a heavy heart, I promised Helen I would share my experience but as others who have shared reviews, selfishly I want to keep this a secret for myself so we can enjoy the pleasure of old fountain villas for years to come!

My first ever review of this kind as I believe old fountain villas and Chania is a special place.

Enjoy the place and experience the wonderful hospitality of Helen and Mike.

Never been to Greece let alone any of the Greek islands & I have to say what a beautiful place loved it. One of our best holidays over a span of 19 years and I've been to some exotic places. Lovely place to stay , great food & excellent views of sunset & sunrise over the white mountain. We loved it so much we've booked to go back next year .... There may be some places I'd missed

Stayed here in May 2013 and we are still talking about this holiday.
The villas was ideally situated for us, nestled in the hills among the olives and oranges away from the busier coast.

Helen was a star with lovely touches to the villa and great for local knowledge of the best places to visit. We were just a stones throw (well by car) from a water park, go kart track, great family beach, some excellent restaurants.

We had stayed at some apartments in Thessalonica before this and thought that they would be hard to beat, but this secluded villa was the perfect retreat. With good flights from the UK this place is always going to be popular and I shouldnt be singing its praises if I ever want to get a look in next year!!

WOW!!! Our family had the pleasure of staying at the Old Fountain Villas in June. This will be one of those trips that will be talked about for years to come. The villas are perfect and include everything you need during your trip to Crete. The views are amazing and the location can't be beat. Just a short drive to restaurants and the beautiful beaches. Each day would begin with breakfast on the terrace admiring the beautiful views and end with a relaxing swim in the pool. The owners, Mike & Helen, could not have been more wonderful and helped to make our trip unforgettable. They really know how to make you feel like family! Watch out, Mike & Helen, we will be back! We HAVE to come back!!

I had the opportunity to stay at the "Old Fountain Villas" which was one of the most incredible vacations I have experienced in my life. The owners, Helen and Mike, were amazing hosts and made our vacation very enjoyable. The Villa itself was beautiful! It is located up on a hill in the village of Galatas which was very peaceful and quiet. The view from the balcony was breathtaking and the pool was a great place to relax during the day when we were not at one of the beautiful local beaches. Many restaurant options nearby for great local food and drink! Overall we had a great time and enjoyed every minute we spent at "Old Fountain Villas". Thank You Helen and Mike!! We will hopefully see you again soon! Josh P.
