The villa is exactly as advertised, though the pictures don't do the place justice - it's even more gorgeous in person. Family friendly in all the right ways (we have two young kids, this was hugely helpful to our stay to have, for example, gates around the pool, etc). But the absolute best part was the customer service. Kostas and his entire family were so wonderful, they truly made us feel so welcome. High, high recommend for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing place to unwind. We'll be back for sure.
This was our third vacation in this Villa.
We still love the Villa, the village and the Vasilakis family.
Their kindness and helpfulness is still much more then
expected, and the quality of the Villa is superb.
We recommend it to everyone!
One thing is for sure, we'll be back
The villa is wonderful and absolute in line with all pictures and description in the internet. A perfect service of Kostas and his family made the stay like a dream for one week. The quite location and warm welcome has concluded this holiday.
Many thanks to Kostas and his family who made all a great service !!
We´ll visit again.
From 8.-15. April 2017 we spent a wonderful week in Villa Elefhterna. Even before our actual vacation were the detailed pre-information, the precise directions and the nice mail contacts exemplary. On arrival the owner oft he house surprised us with nice welcome gifts, including drinks, bread, a large bottle of excellent olive oil and a large fruit bowl.
The house itself was clean and fully equipped, the garden and the pool perfectly well-kept. Especially impressed us the nice, helpful care, which we could take up at any time by telephone. For the cold evenings we could even turn on the heating.
We would like to mention the quiet and interesting location of Villa Eleftherna, as the excavation "Ancient Eleftherna" and a great archaeological museum are only a few minutes away.
We noticed that all the previous guests of Villa Eleftherna were enthusiastic about the house and the service - the proof came from the guestbook, which is full of praise.
Should you rent the house, we have another tip for you: In the village there is a small market, but the opening times are irregular. Unfortunately, the bakery delivers fresh bread too late for breakfast. It is recommended to take bread on the previous day and to crisp up at home.
Conclusion: The Villa Eleftherna is absolutely recommendable!
If you are looking for the real Crete with all the benefits of a perfect acommodation, then Villa Eleftherna is a prime choice. We (a party of 9, seven adults and two children) spent two wonderful weeks there and felt like we could have go on forever. Photos are almost doing a little bit of injustice to the property: spotless clean, very well organized space inside and outside and a view to die for, overlooking both the small village and the sea. Tavernas with the robust and tasty Cretan food are within walking distance, and the small supermarket at the entrance of the village provides you with everything basic. Chania is some 80 km away and the beautiful Southern beaches are some 45 minutes away, so having a car is a must, but driving around and getting to know the land and the people are part of the experience. Yorgos and his family are the main plus: welcoming and helpful out of their hearts, being always there when needed, providing you with valuable infos on restaurants, beaches, beautiful places. Tip: taste Yorgos' superb agoureleo - the olive oil he makes in November.
We had a wonderful time at this amazing villa . Our welcome on arrival , the villa , service throughout our stay and facilities were outstanding . The owners are very proud of the villa and go out of their way to ensure you have a 5star holiday they were very caring without being intintrusive very helpful and friendly . A car is required so that you can explore the wonderful island of Crete . Local tavernas were friendly and reasonable priced . You could not want for a better place to stay with beautiful views and we loved thank you
If you do not mind staying a bit away from the city ( 25 minutes ) this house is a pearl. Fantastic location with view over the mountains and sea fare away in the horizon. Fantastic house in very high quality. A fantastic warm and kind host and top service from the entire team / agency. Car is a must so you can explore the many fantastic sites in Crete. The pictures show you exactly what you get and we can highly recommend you to book this house.
