“Great Family Holiday in Crete”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Our family (4 adult couples and 5 small kids) spent a week togethre in the villa in August.
The location is great - there is a bakery 5 minutes walking distance from the villla where we bought our breakfast bread and pastry. We shopped for all other food in supermarkets around the area (15 minutes drive away).
The rooms are well accommodated, the villa and especially the outdoor spaces are beautiful. The The landlord is adorable and helpful and brought us a delicious home-made cake, tasty olive oil, fresh fruit and Raki.
I would definitely recommend the villa to families or large group of friends.
The only thing that we would suggest improving is some of cooking appliances (cutting knifes cutting boards, and vegetable peeler) which we were missing. However I'm positive that if only we had asked the landlord we would get new ones at the same day.

We spent a 4 generation family vacation in Kallergi villa. It was the perfect place for 10 adults (including my 86 year old grandfather) and 2 babies. The location made touring the island very comfortable, the villa itself was beautiful, quiet and spacious. Every room had a private en-suite bathroom (of the 5 we used) and Costas was a wonderful host- even brought a birthday cake!!!
We found the villa well equipped, including a big jar of olive oil, wine and milk. it was the perfect family vacation!

We were two couples vacationing on Crete and we had the great good fortune to find Villas Kallergi. Loutra is the perfect location from which to explore the island and our villa was the perfect home for the week. Everyday, after our adventures, we came home and swam in the delightful pool. The beds were comfortable, the living areas pleasant, and Costas, the owner's father, was a fantastic host. I can't recommend this villa more highly. We are looking forward to a return trip.

We were a group of 10 American college students studying abroad looking for a spring break plan. The house was wonderful - roomy, comfortable, good internet. The house has great outdoor spaces too - a roof deck and a terrace perfect for breakfast or lunch. The owners were very kind; they checked in on us to make sure everything was ok. They even let us use the pool of the house next door that they also own. We enjoyed our stay immensely. One recommendation would be to rent a car, as the house is a 10 or 15 minute drive from Rethymno. There is, however, a public bus.

We booked both villas for an extended family vacation. The experience - booking to arrival to stay - was very good, and the Kallergis family were extremely helpful throughout the whole process.

The villa is in a beautiful and quiet village with only a small local bakery. Would recommend a car, which opens up access to many lovely restaurants and the beaches near Rethymnon.

The whole experience was very enjoyable, and the 2 houses are beautifully kept. They are quite different experiences - old, windy and full of character (Kallergi) and newly done up and more "regular" (Nefeli). The pool in Kallergi is tiny - more a dipping pool really.

Only quibble was that we had some small issues - wi-fi (included) was hit and miss and some of the appliances were not 100%. Owner responded very quickly, though was not able to get all sorted.

Would recommend for a quiet holiday away from the masses.

We were a group of friends who spent a wonderful few days in Villa Kallergi. The house is lovely and spacious, the village is near to towns and shops (we had a rental car, which helped), and the kallergis family were very friendly and helpful, even turning up with cake and ice cream the day we arrived! We had no problems, and enjoyed our stay very much.

The service was 5- star and the villa was great. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the villa easily housed a 5 person family which included three teenagers. The villa includes a pool and rooftop patio. The villa was the perfect place to rest and relax before our various tourist excursions.

The villa is located in a small village just south of Rethymno. With a car it is easy to reach the beaches on the north and south side of the island. The villa is near the historic Arkadi Monastery - which we recommend visiting.

The one thing we liked best about our stay was the helpfulness of the villa managers. There advice on where to eat and which beaches to visit was perfect. There assistance made our trip to Crete easy and enjoyable.

Without hesitation I would recommend this Villa Kallergi to any of my friends.
