We had a great holiday at Villa Aetos, Crete. The villa was perfect for the 11 of us (9 adults and 2 children). The location was good, close to the beach and a few nearby bars and restaurants. The taxi rank is also very close to the villa. The owners and agents were very friendly and helpful and we would love to visit again in the future.
The villa was amazing with everything we could have wished for. The children
loved the pool (so did the adults). Your brother John was very welcoming and helpful as were the family on site. The children were thrilled with the fresh eggs every morning and
loved to see the chickens. The Villa was in a good position close to restaurants and bars but also nice and quiet and private. We visited Poppy's
on a couple of occasions and the food was excellent as was the service, very friendly people.
Thank you again for all your help, we hope to visit Crete again in the near future and would definitely use your company again.
This is the second time we've booked a villa near Rethymno through Kostas Vasilakis and we cannot recommend him and his company highly enough, especially Sophia and his brother John, who went out of their way to ensure we had a great holiday without being intrusive in anyway.
Villa Aetos was lovely and we had a lovely relaxing two weeks with 13 of us staying. The owners of the villa live in their house in the same grounds and they were also very friendly without invading our privacy. They kindly made us two cakes and also shared eggs from their chickens in the morning.
One thing to be aware is that it is a €11 taxi ride to Rethymno old town (around 15 mins) which we love but there are a large number of tavernas within walking distance if you fancy something lower key.
We really enjoyed our time in Crete, the villa was beautiful and the surroundings were very nice. It was possible to walk to the beach and a gorge was near the villa.
The family was very helpful: John picked us up at the bus station, he brought us to the supermarket on our first day and he fixed our bike. We explored the area by bike, but we recommend to rent a car, if you have a drivers license. We would love to come back to the island one day to see more of Crete and to relax in the villa.
We were 13 friends in holiday and we had a wonderfull time at Aetos Villa. The pool is great, 5great big rooms, a very nice barbecue fully equiped! The villa is located 5mins by feet from the beach and tavern, bar etc...
we also had the bread deliver to the villa which is a great plus!!
i will give a big 5 stars to the etouri team who from the booking to the checkout is here to guide you!thank you very much!
my family and I have just returned from spending 10 days (from13.04.17 - 23.04.17)
in the beautiful Villa Aetos, and what a wonderful holiday we had there.
when we arrived we were met by Yanis and his Dad who explained everything, and he had even brought our basic supplies we had asked for although we had a welcome pack including wine waiting as well,
everything in the Villa was spotlessly clean, the lovely WHITE bedding and towels were changed every 3 days.
we had access to the chickens and our granddaughters loved collecting the eggs every day
There is just nothing we can fault with the Villa, and the oh so friendly people
We stayed in villa aetos with a large group of 9 adults and three young children. This is a lovely, spacious villa with all the facilities you need. There is a small but pleasant pool. In particular, we lived the vegetable garden, where we could pick fresh produce every morning, chickens who provided fresh eggs and an area for barbecuing. The management company who looked after the villa were great, provided excellent local information, helped us with bookings and resolved some small problems we had quickly and effeiciently. The owners of the villa live at the bottom of the drive and they were very friendly and welcoming, even allowing our children to play in their playground. The villa is walking distance to the beach and small shops, although you would need a car to go rurther afield.
I would highly recommend this villa and we would like to come back next year.
