“Paradise!”
Reviewed September 21, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

As with all hidden gems, this is not easy to find, but this is a paradise far from the bustle by the coast and still you enjoy the outmost luxury!
We spent a week with the family; 5 adults and 2,5 year old. Plenty of space, spacious rooms and living room, and there is always a place where you can sit alone.
Starting out the day by the pool, you could either lay in the sun or sit in the shade, and the safety for kids is perfect with the fence up to the pool area.
But please note- this is the perfect place for anyone wanting full relaxation without traffic, tourist shops, lots of people. In the village there is a small shop but you can not nyhagen any groceries there, only water, beer, soda and ice cream, and also hand made bracelets, beautiful!
The nearest grocery store, a small one with only the most necessary, I am 5 min drive away. Down to the coast and the buzz it takes approx 30 mins.
Best is to stock up at Carrefour in Chania or Rethymno and then just enjoy the most gorgeous hideaway I've ever visited.
The view alone leaves you breathless.
But there is something to do that you shouldn't miss - the excavation of the ancient Eleutherna, just down the road from the house, and the museum a short drive, or sturdy walk, away. Extremely interesting, and it enhances your feeling of being on proper Greek ground.
And my special thank you to the owners, the amazing family that now holds a special place in our hearts. And maybe we'll be back with my grandson....❤

“Exceptional location and beautiful villa with pool”
Reviewed August 23, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Very welcoming host who spoke great English and was smiley and enthusiastic and really keen for us to have a great time at the villa (which we most certainly did!)
The villa had fantastic views of the valley and was a very short walk from the ancient site of Eleftherna (but when we visited not all areas were open to the public - be aware before you set off on a hike to the covered ruins).
The accommodation was faultless. Lovely airy rooms - 3 bedrooms one with a double bed downstairs, another with two twins, one more with two twins with a mezzanine double. Very well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave etc.
Outside there was always somewhere to sit in the shade or the sun with plenty of garden furniture available. The pool was perfect for 2 adults and 3 teenagers - a metre deep in the shallow end and fenced off from the house.
Plenty of space for parking with the property secured with gates if need be - but security we understand is really not an issue in the village.
A nearby village (10 minutes in a car) had a decent sized supermarket which had everything you would need. Also nearby (a short drive) were many tavernas serving authentic Greek food,
The Arkadi monastery, only several km away, is a must visit,
We had a brilliant time and felt in an idyllic world of our own. Brilliant find, Thank you.

“Absolutely superb!!”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Superb villa with everything you would want - and Magda and her father were amazing. They made the difference - so friendly, helpful and welcoming. I would not hesitate in recommending this villa for a holiday. Great location - lovely and quiet but with nothing too far away.

“Great place to be”
Reviewed September 4, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a great time in villa Stavros.
It was as beautifull as the pictures on the internet promised or even better.
The fresh products provided by Mr.Manolis and his family were very much appreciated.
Crete itself is a beautifull island with very much to see and do.
Among other thing we visited Knossos, the Imbros Gorge and spent some nice time in Rethimno.
This villa is the perfect place to be if you like the silence of a small Greek village.
The beach is about half an hour drive and the excavations of Ancient Eleftherna are next door and worth exploring.
Last but not least, we loved the Greek kitchen.

“Beautiful quiet place with stunning views”

person found this review helpful

We have spent a wonderful week in this beautiful house: everything is just as the photos show. The location is great if you prefer a quiet area, far from the crowds and touristic places, but you will need a car to travel around (it will take about 20min to drive to a larger town, Perama, and 35min to Rethymno).
The views are really stunning, the villa is big and very comfortable with good facilities. The large well-kept garden and the pool are perfect to relax.
The very friendly owner, Mr Manolis, came to visit us several times, bringing local wine and eggs! Mr Kostas, the agent, was extremely useful and always available to answer our questions.
We would certainly recomment this place to anybody looking for a a nice and quiet place to stay in Crete.

A beautiful Willa .. truly unique in appearance with amazing attention to detail. Fresh and airy with the sun streaming into our room yet cosy too. Wonderfully comfy beds.. We got a brilliant nights sleep after a 36 hour day
We felt very chilled and relaxed here and only wish we could have stayed longer ..
The Willa is just out of the centre so very peaceful.. it took us about thirty minutes to drive to the Rythymno,
stopping to admire the landscape,and take photos on the way! The owner was very friendly and welcoming,hi got us some homemade wine and other specialities. One world -amazing!!
