“A warm welcome and a lovely place to stay”
Reviewed November 1, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We really enjoyed our stay here. The villa and grounds were beautifully maintained, the pool area was delightful and everything was very clean.

The location was ideal for us. Astipopulo is a quiet village but it only took a few minutes drive to Rethymno. Being in the middle of the Island meant that many of the sites were reachable for day trips.

Above all, it was the warm welcome of our host Kostas and his wife Maria which made our stay so memorable. For example, arriving late in the evening after a tiring day travelling we found that Kostas had prepared a lovely supper for us!

We also enjoyed some local Cretan food, including honey, pastries and oranges, which was left for us. As we were keen to explore the island, Kostas had many suggestions for places to visit to get the most out of our stay.

We are looking forward to visiting again soon!

“Very nice villa, sympathetic owner”
Reviewed May 4, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a great time on Crete. The Amnos villa contributed very much to our holiday experience. The villa is spacious and nicely decorated. Mr Kostas, the owner lives nearby and he is really a very sympathetic man. he made us breakfast on the first day of our stay! He gave us oranges, olive oil and lots of other specialties from his own garden and from other places in Crete! He had very good suggestions for trips, taking into account the wheater forecast. The pool was clean and even in spring our teenagers really enjoyed it!

“A Villa with a lot of charm!”
Reviewed October 16, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

We arrived late afternoon.
Mr Kostas (owner) immediately offered us a ride to a nearby supermarket, as we needed to stock up the fridge.

This was a sign of things to come as far as the owners approach to their guests is considered. Both Mr Kostas and his lovely wife Maria will not let you have a bad stay. Not a chance.

The villa itself is spacious and has a lot of character. Decor has a lot to do with it, so does the tidiness. Spot on. The pool is inviting and just the right size.

The only thing that may bother guests without means of transport (like us) is the fact that it is a bit of a walk to get to Rethimno (around 30 min). We got rescued by Mr Kostas on a few occasions with a lift to town, including the crucial one on the last day, when our pre booked taxi just did not show up.

This is a 5 star spot. No questions. Make sure to check it out.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We stayed in Villa Ammos for almost two weeks: the house was well equipped and the beds were comfortable. There were shops and markets in the area .
The garden was well-tended and the swimming pool was clean. The owner was very helpful and kind every time we asked him something. We appreciated very much the welcome Greek breakfast he prepared for us the first day !
An excellent place to relax !

“Perfect paradise holiday in Rethymno”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have absolutely loved to stay at Diktamos Villas. The villas are beautiful and tastefully decorated - they are large and there's a great view to the ocean from the top floor balcony. The area is lovely quiet and yet there's all you need very nearby (baker, supermarket, pharmacy) The villa has a lovely pool and though the sea is only 5 min away, the kids loved to play in the pool in the morning while we had breakfast outside under the beautiful mulberry tree. The owners are very sweet and helpful giving all sorts of guideance as how to spend a great vacation in Crete. Kostas will often serve the most wonderful Cretan salad on the terrace and his wife Maria has a well known restaurent 'Knossos' in the old Venetian harbor, where you can get the best fish dishes. We can only recommend this place of paradise and we will come back for sure! :-)
