“Wonderful Villa for a great holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We spent a 4 generation family vacation in Kallergi villa. It was the perfect place for 10 adults (including my 86 year old grandfather) and 2 babies. The location made touring the island very comfortable, the villa itself was beautiful, quiet and spacious. Every room had a private en-suite bathroom (of the 5 we used) and Costas was a wonderful host- even brought a birthday cake!!!
We found the villa well equipped, including a big jar of olive oil, wine and milk. it was the perfect family vacation!

We were two couples vacationing on Crete and we had the great good fortune to find Villas Kallergi. Loutra is the perfect location from which to explore the island and our villa was the perfect home for the week. Everyday, after our adventures, we came home and swam in the delightful pool. The beds were comfortable, the living areas pleasant, and Costas, the owner's father, was a fantastic host. I can't recommend this villa more highly. We are looking forward to a return trip.

We were a group of 10 American college students studying abroad looking for a spring break plan. The house was wonderful - roomy, comfortable, good internet. The house has great outdoor spaces too - a roof deck and a terrace perfect for breakfast or lunch. The owners were very kind; they checked in on us to make sure everything was ok. They even let us use the pool of the house next door that they also own. We enjoyed our stay immensely. One recommendation would be to rent a car, as the house is a 10 or 15 minute drive from Rethymno. There is, however, a public bus.

We booked both villas for an extended family vacation. The experience - booking to arrival to stay - was very good, and the Kallergis family were extremely helpful throughout the whole process.

The villa is in a beautiful and quiet village with only a small local bakery. Would recommend a car, which opens up access to many lovely restaurants and the beaches near Rethymnon.

The whole experience was very enjoyable, and the 2 houses are beautifully kept. They are quite different experiences - old, windy and full of character (Kallergi) and newly done up and more "regular" (Nefeli). The pool in Kallergi is tiny - more a dipping pool really.

Only quibble was that we had some small issues - wi-fi (included) was hit and miss and some of the appliances were not 100%. Owner responded very quickly, though was not able to get all sorted.

Would recommend for a quiet holiday away from the masses.

We were a group of friends who spent a wonderful few days in Villa Kallergi. The house is lovely and spacious, the village is near to towns and shops (we had a rental car, which helped), and the kallergis family were very friendly and helpful, even turning up with cake and ice cream the day we arrived! We had no problems, and enjoyed our stay very much.

The service was 5- star and the villa was great. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the villa easily housed a 5 person family which included three teenagers. The villa includes a pool and rooftop patio. The villa was the perfect place to rest and relax before our various tourist excursions.

The villa is located in a small village just south of Rethymno. With a car it is easy to reach the beaches on the north and south side of the island. The villa is near the historic Arkadi Monastery - which we recommend visiting.

The one thing we liked best about our stay was the helpfulness of the villa managers. There advice on where to eat and which beaches to visit was perfect. There assistance made our trip to Crete easy and enjoyable.

Without hesitation I would recommend this Villa Kallergi to any of my friends.

What I liked most in this lovely Cretan village was the tranquility it had to offer. I especially enjoyed the privacy of the villa. What is most important is that the house was clean, the rooms were comfortable and the owners very hospitable. If you are looking for a relaxed, family or couples vacation you don't need to think twice. I noticed that previous comments didn't state the credibility of the owners and the ease at which we had the financial transactions. I would definitely vouch for the villa's management! Being able to plan ahead and having a credible contraparty is THE most important aspect of vacation! I have had very bad experiences with owners when renting a villa in Turkey and Cyprus.‎
