“A great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

In April, we spent an excellent week in Villa Rea. Having stayed there with a family of four, there was ample space, a great pool, and a beautiful view of Lake Kournas. The house was the most complete we have ever rented, the owners thought of everything. The place is modern and was kept spotless clean. The owners were very helpful and welcomed us with fresh eggs, fresh fruit, home-baked cookies and cake, and raki. The location of the house, near Georgoupoli in between Chania and Rethymno, allowed for trips to almost every place on the island east of Iraklion. Knossos is still very doable. There are many restaurants near the house, even within walking distance.

Crete was wonderful. The food is very affordable and just very good. There are many places to visit ranging from beautiful beaches to snow-capped mountains, to interesting cultural and historic places. The people are very hospitable and kind. In short, a great stay in a great location!

We stayed at the villa at the beginning of October for a week and loved it.
The villa is fully equipped with everything you need - beach towels, hairdryer, iron, tv etc and all the villa is done out to a really good spec.
it was cleaned mid way through the week which was a lovely touch and we were given olive oil cakes, cookies and fresh fruit on our arrival which was very thoughtful.
The villa is in a good location - amazing views of the both the lake and the sea!- walking distance to the lake and a few tavernas, though we were pleased we had a car so we could do day trips - easy reach to Rthymno and Chania.
The pool is of decent size - big enough to splash around and cool down, and sunloungers and umbrellas were all provided which allowed for lazy days sunbathing.
Would thoroughly recommend the villa to anyone wanting to visit Crete.

Bluefairy villas are the best place to enjoy Cretian's life, enjoy the quiet place with the splendid view on the Kournas Lake. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

All is done to feel at home. Sunbeds, balls in the swimming pool, fresh fruits when arriving, homemade cakes and biscuits, ...

Superbe endroit pour passer de magnifiques vacances.

If you walk 5 minutes, you have a delicious restaurant called Georgia's.

I spent a week at the Bluefairy Villa Rae in May 2013. It was a wonderful rental; the amenities were excellent, spacious, clean, modern and had a washing machine which was golden for us. The views of Lake Kournas (right below the Villa) and the surrounding views were spectacular. In addition, there is a private pool at your Villa if you want a lazy day at home. The location was perfect for our plans to discover the surrounding areas of Crete. The Landlord Eleftheria Athitaki and her family were so generous and welcoming to us. I would definitely recommend this Villa as a rental!!! It sleeps 7 people, the open concept, patios (first & second floors) and private pool plus the Lake at the bottom of the hill make for an ideal vacation spot ....I am definitely coming back and renting the same Villa! Thank you Eleftheria for a wonderful week at Lake Kournas and Greek hospitality!

I recently spent a week at Bluefairy Villas and had a very enjoyable experience. The Villa is clean, spacious, modern and the view of Kournas Lake and the mountains are absolutely beautiful!! I was very pleased with the amenities as we were able to cook, wash clothes and watch satellite TV. The Villa also offers wireless internet. Sitting outside by the pool was very relaxing and I couldn’t take my eyes off the beautiful scenery. The family is very welcoming and so are all the great people we met at the local restaurants! Crete is so beautiful that I didn’t even want to leave! I highly recommend Bluefairy Villas and I definitely am planning to return again in the very near future. I give Bluefairy Villas a five star rating!!!

The Villa Rea has everything for a family or couple to feel as if it is a 'home away from home'. Modern, clean and comfortable with all the amenities to cook and wash clothes including satellite TV and wireless internet and with the most incredible views of the lake, mountains and the sparkling Mediterranean the location and setting is fabulous. Taverna’s by the lake are literally just around the corner with ‘Real’ Cretan home cooking, Georgioupolis and Kavros are a few minutes drive away with excellent places to shop and their glorious mile long beaches. Chania and its incredible Venetian Old Town and harbour is only 30 minutes away and the views of the White Mountains en route make the journey there all the more incredible. I was here for two months and could not have been more comfortable and as a base to explore the remainder of the island it was just perfect. The family and their ‘cousins’ made me feel like part of the family and they were ever so welcoming with their warmth and generosity. They brought me fresh eggs and olive oil, home baked cookies and fresh lemons and of course their rather invigorating rake! I could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay or a warmer welcome. I would recommend the villa and Lake Kournas to anyone who wants the most perfect holiday in the most incredible surroundings with peace and beauty of the lake right on your doorstep and then the beautiful island of Crete at your fingertips. 5 star plus - Efcharisto!
