“Lovely family villa”
Reviewed August 23, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our family stay at Villa Sylvia and would recommend it highly.

The owners were very welcoming and provided us with homemade local food at times during our stay. The facilities in the villa were fantastic and overall the accommodation was presented excellently – all very clean and tidy.

We had our two children with us (ages 10 & 7) and the villa was perfect for them. They spent a lot of time in the pool and we found the villa to be very safe and secure.

The location of the villa is in between two towns (3-4 km north and south) offering restaurants, supermarkets, beaches (north) and easy access to the northern coastal highway connecting Heraklion with Rethynmo. All very convenient, but if you’re used to a very quiet location, you may not like being so close to the road.

The wifi in the villa was pretty good, although we noticed the speed and quality of the connection drop when the adjoining villa was occupied. We were a little disappointed that there was no facility to connect music playing devices to the entertainment system in the villa. A music station / dock would be a good addition to the equipment inside the villa.

Overall, this is a fantastic villa, in a convenient location, with stunning views and owners who took great care and pride in making our stay on the island of Crete extra-special. Thank you to Eirini and her parents for everything you did for us and we hope to see you again soon.

“Wonderful Holiday”
Reviewed July 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We have just returned from two weeks at Villa Sylvia and we have had a wonderful holiday. The villa sits between panormo and perama which are 2 fairly quiet resorts. Panormo is a port with lovely views and Porto Parasiris is a great restuarant with wonderful food.
The villa is beautiful and is very well equipped. It is tastefully decorated and the garden is full of fresh fruit and veg. The family who own the villa are wonderful and ensured we enjoyed our holiday to the full. Shout out to Dimitris, Roula, Irene & Giorgos who helped make our holiday the best.
We would highly recommend this villa and will hopefully be back there soon

“A wonderful villa with magnificent views!”
Reviewed November 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

The brand new villa is very beautiful, tastefully furnished, well equipped, it has everything one could need
to have an really comfortable stay.
The plot is surrounded by a stone wall and has an remote controlled, shielded gate making it child friendly
and private.
The garden is also very nice, well planned and beautiful, with herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers and strawberries for plucking,
and the pool area is just perfect.
This place has magnificent surroundings with miles and miles of olive groves and of course the mountains in the background.
The owners are the kindest and nicest people one can imagine, service minded, warm and friendly,
they really made our stay here unforgettable!
We really recommend villa Sylvia and we will return for sure.

“Beautifully furnished villa in a private location”

people found this review helpful

The villa is comfortable, clean and very well furnished. We were welcomed by the owners who were extremely friendly and keen to ensure we enjoyed our stay.
The villa is surrounded by olive groves so it was peaceful and we were not overlooked. It is only a short drive from Panormos for tavernas, shops and beach, or Perama for shops (where we frequently visited a fantastic coffee shop / bakery!)
We helped ourselves to peppers, tomatoes and herbs grown in the garden, enjoyed watching the sun set from our balconys and felt thoroughly relaxed. The children loved the pool, which was safe and warm. I would definitely choose this villa if I came back to Crete.
