We were two families staying in the lovely Villa Grambella for one week in July. The villa is situated in an olive grove on the hill side, but still with in easy reach of the beach. The house is modern and well equiped, though dish machine and microwave would have been welcome additions. It was a luxury having a separate bathroom per bedroom. The pool is well kept and at a good distance from the house. We could sit on the terrace and watch the kids playing without getting splashed :-).
Unfortunately the summer of 2017 turned out to be a year of many crickets / cicadas. During daytime they were quite loud but they calmed down during the evenings.
The hosts were very helpful and kind and we would recommend the house to anyone.
If peace and quiet in a beautiful setting is what you are looking for, this is the place for you!
We had a truly relaxing vacation and we will definitely go back next year!
We enjoyed a great holiday in this quiet countryside villa. The house was clean and the location is optimal as you can easily drive to every major sightseeing of Crete. It was really interesting to see how olives grow in the orchard and we saw some really impressive olive trees. Nearby shops and taverns are very convenient.
Many thanks to our hosts.
I feel compelled to write this review after receiving 3 stars from the owners!
So where do I start?
From the beginning on arrival at the villa we were delayed on our flight but had deliberately given our flight number I'm guessing so the owners could...TRACK IT!
the husband was so rude blaming us for being late!!
The pictures on the website(artistic licence) tell a very different story! It's so overgrown the pool was never cleaned and the kitchen is so under equipped..
Rather than shouting at me when the rubbish was put in the wrong place and eaten by a plethora of cats! Have a WELCOME PACK that tells you what to do or any relevant information regarding the holiday experience.
I'll thank you for the bottle of water and apples( others had wine!)that was our welcome! I'm laughing at this now, char don't bother replying to this because you've already given me 3 stars about if gratitude I'm giving you 2, I had a fabulous holiday with my family but it wasn't because of the villa/ but. Oh and don't get me started on the dogs...
Villa Grambella is situated in an olive garden of 30.000m2. It is a romantic place with a lot of privacy and we felt like Adam and Eve living in paradise but then in a swimming suit. Our twin boys of 5 years old enjoyed the private swimming pool very much The hosts are very kind people and they helped us fantastic when we were in trouble. On our way back we found out on the airport that we left our passports in the villa. We drove back and they drove to us at the same time. So we could met halfway and picked up the passports. Thanks to their help we were able to catch our plane in the very last minutes. Thank you for the great time and help in your villa
Great villa with good facilities in lovely setting. We really enjoyed relaxing in the pool surrounded by olive groves. Would definitely return.
We stayed in the villa and the suite for 9 days. The city of Rhetymnon is 10 minutes away in car, beach and local shops are walking distance. The villa itself is situated inside a beautiful olive grove.
Whenever we travel there are usually some kind of flaws, minor or major, in the place where we are staying, but everything here was perfect for us. The wifi is fast, the place is quiet, clean, wonderfully refurbished, has all the amenities you need for a longer stay, like a large size refridgerator, freezer, coffee-making machines, toaster, oven, dishwasher etc, and the friendly caretakers, always respecting your privacy, are close by, if you need anything, since they live in one of the three buildings on the premise.
The villa has a nice, clean pool, that even has a small children's pool attached, which our 6 year-old son really liked. The suite has a spa outside where you can watch the sunset.
We would love to come back here one day.
