This villa is fabulous and not to be missed if you are planning a holiday to Crete! We are a family of 6 (children 14, 13, 10, 10) On our evening arrival, we were greeted by the owner who showed us around the villa and then asked us to join him at his restaurant for dinner which was such a lovely gesture as we were all tired and hungry from the journey and this made a wonderful start to our holiday. They also left complimentary wine, fruit, meat and cheese for our arrival. The villa is modern, bright, clean and has everything you could possibly need to make your stay perfect. The bedrooms are spacious, bright and clean with simple furnishings - if you have the energy there is also a gym at the bottom of the villa! The pool and garden area is beautiful for lazy days and evenings and BBQ. We stayed for nearly 2 weeks and the villa was cleaned after the first week. We hired a car for our stay and travelled around the area visiting some of the beautiful beaches of Elafonisi and Falassarna. Chania and Rethymno are towns worth visiting and along the way in Georgioupoli there is a wonderful lake with mountain views where you can hire a pedalo boat - the kids loved this. Villa Diktina is not to be missed for your stay in Crete!
We booked Villa Diktina a few weeks before we were due to visit Crete. The weeks rental included a meal together with wine for 5 at the owners restaurant, in the lovely fishing village of Kolymbari which was established in the 70's and has a reputation for quality dining not only with holiday makers but locals too..
The Villa has recently been completed and this being the first summer season for the owners. They have done a wonderful job in both the interior decoration and the gardens that surround this superb Villa.
There was complementary wine and fruit waiting for us on our arrival.
The swimming pool was wonderful, secluded and very welcoming.
The owners were on hand to help with any questions we had regarding the villa.
If you are visiting Crete, Villa Diktina is a must, to make your stay in Crete extremely enjoyable.
Very cozy and lovely house, best for holidays, very close to the beach and also to the city! I recommend it for all those who want to explore the West Crete!
