The location of this beautiful villa is very scenic and peaceful. We were a family of 4 adults, and thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay at the villa. The sea view is absolutely breath-taking and the villa itself is very spacious and well-presented. The villa had all the amenities and facilities which we expected and needed, and we were impressed with the good wifi connection too.
The Owner Teo is very friendly and helpful, and even came to pick us up when we got lost in the area on our first day, and kindly helped us with our shopping. Teo also helped to organise taxis for us, whenever needed. In addition to this, upon request, Teo also organised a wonderful Masseuse for myself.
There is a small beach and some restaurants, about 15 minutes walk away from the villa itself. The bigger, more organised blue flag beach is near the Marina in the Town, which is a 15 minute drive away by car/taxi. You can also find more places to eat, explore and relax in the town area.
If travelling by foot, walking uphill where the villa is located is a bit difficult in the heat. I would therefore advise renting a car if walking is an issue, and taxis in the area are also cheap. A taxi to or from the main town part of Rethymno, will cost approximately 5 Euros.
Teo has included a helpful guidebook in the villa as well, with some recommendations for local sight-seeing and activities. We were also provided with a free cleaning service during our stay, which was very much appreciated. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway, I would definitely recommend this villa. My Family and I had a great holiday, and look forward to re-visiting Crete.
