From making the initial booking and corresponding with Kostas the whole booking process was every easy, especially when we had to delay the holiday for 2 years due to covid. Kostas was very supportive and was extremely responsive to any questions throughout the whole 2 year process and would recommend his services to everyone. Arrived at airport and picked up by a taxi organise by Kostas and what a taxi beautiful inside and every clean, the 1 hour journey went very fast due to wonderful landscape. When we arrived at the villa what can I say, what an amazing place, they always say location location but this ticked all the boxes, supermarket next door and beach approximately 1.5 miles from the village. We arrived at 4pm and met Andreas who shown me around the villa, to explain where everything was located and even sorted out my hire car and had this delivered to the villa. Every time I texted him he responded within minutes with excellent information on the area including places to visit and the best shopping and butchers in the area. I cannot express in words the beautiful vista from the pool area even a photograph could not do it justice you need to stay there to understand what I am saying. There were 6 adults and two very energetic 4 year olds in the villa and there was so much room for everyone to do their own thing, everyone really enjoyed the outside area including the pool which was exceptionally clean and we paid extra for it to be heated for the two week break, this I would recommend as it made our swimming that more pleasurable. Over the two week break the villa was cleaned 4 times and when I say cleaned I mean cleaned, all clean bed linen all areas of villa cleaned swept and moped it took them a good 4 hours each visit, and when we arrived back at the villa Andreas had left us a little gift of home made cakes and sweets, and our final leaving gift was freshly made olive oil and rosemary which was really thoughtful. When visors leave these comments the main comment would they go back, and for us it would be a resounding YES we will definitely go back. So all I can say is check out the villa on the internet and book it right now, you will love it as much as we did.

We booked Villa Sugar before COVID and had to wait a year longer than expected to get there …but it was totally worth the wait. Brilliantly located just 15 mins from Rethymno which is a beautiful city (millions of great restaurants in beautiful lanes), Villa Sugar is right in the middle of all the sites on the Island. The villa itself is perfectly designed for sociable chilling - massive comfy sitting room opens straight out onto shaded patio, then from there straight onto sun zone, then straight onto the beautiful infinity pool. Pretty much the perfect set up from our standpoint (also the fact it’s literally right next to a great supermarket with super-friendly staff was another bonus!). Etouri holidays who manage it are fantastic - incredibly responsive and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they got back to us on everything immediately. Their concierge (for booking trips) was also top quality. Faultless. Top tips for things to see, Imbros Gorge - just as good as Samira Gorge but much much closer Kourna Lake - crystal clear natural lake with turtles and great local restaurants just 15 mins away Preveli Beach - rated one of top places to visit in whipped of Greece and I can see why. Pretty unique beautiful beach with amazing freshwater creek and palm trees coming down through it All within an hours drive… Important info: if by some crazy chance it rains for a day or two when you’re there (as it did for us after literally months of total sunshine!) just drive to the south side of the island (45 mins) and it will probably be brilliant sunshine again. Something to do with the central mountains catching the clouds on the north side. We did this and worked every time. We absolutely loved it! … we would say Book it!… immediately!

We booked to come to Villa Sugar in May 2020 but unfortunately due to Covid this couldn’t happen. Kostas was so helpful in moving our booking to May 2021. Unfortunately due to the pandemic lasting so long our trip was again cancelled this year. We are absolutely gutted we couldn’t come, but I can’t thank Kostas enough for how helpful he has been in cancelling our booking and refunding our money. One day we will be able to visit and we will definitely book with Kostas again. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Kostas- everyone should book and support the local business! Thank you ( and hopefully see you one day soon)

We have recently returned from our 2 week stay at Villa Sugar. We had such a lovely time and were so well looked after. The villa was stunning as was the view and nothing was too much trouble. There were regular cleans with fresh bedding and towels and always a gift of something yummy left after the cleaners had been. Episkopi beach is around 2km away and is also beautiful and clean with lots of tavernas...Rockas was our personal favourite. Trips and cabs can all be arranged through the villa management company who are more like personal assistants. Honestly made us feel like VIPs. There are a couple of fairly local restaurants that also deliver to the villa so that can be handy. There is also a supermarket right next door with plenty to offer. The villa is in a great, quiet location with beautiful views & sunsets, we would definitely return. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.

Best villa and service in Greece! We had the most amazing week at Villa Sugar, one not to be forgotten. The villa, service, pool, sunsets everything was perfect. Also being located right next door to the supermarket made it so easy for everyone and Episkopi beach being located less than a 5 min drive which was wonderful. The town of Retyhmnon was picturesque and only a 15 minute drive away. The Etouri team booked us 3 dinners whilst we were there ensuring we had the best tables (one being a private area at Veneto which was so unexpected and appreciated). They also secured us a private Catamaran which was a highlight for our holiday. 5* trip thanks again to Robert, Andreas and team - see you next year I hope!

We spent a week at this amazing villa. There were 8 adults in our group and there was plenty of space. Villa is very stylish and well equipped with everything that you could need. We had the beds configured as 3 x doubles and 1 x twin. The view is absolutely stunning, from mountains with snow on one side, olive groves and down to the bay and sea. Breathtaking sunsets in the evening. The pool area is great and there is plenty of outside space which is well equipped with high quality sun loungers. The villa is set on the edge of the village next door to a well stocked supermarket with fresh bread, veg, salad, beer and wine.....everything that you could need. There are a couple of tavernas in the village which were really good. We found eating out to be very cheap in the local area. It's about a 20-30 minute walk down to the beach. There are no pavements though so you have to be careful. Kostas and his team were amazing. Always on hand if we had any questions. They even left us some stuffed peppers and cheese pies when they came to clean the villa. I really can't fault this villa, we had the most amazing time and would highly recommend!

Villa Sugar was even better than we had expected, and our expectations were pretty high to start with. The pictures looked great on the listing and the Etouri team were great to communicate with. The location is perfect if you are coming from Heraklion or Chania. It is very central so you can visit many beaches and the historical site of Knossos in a day trip. What made this place really amazing was: 1. High tech, modern yet rustic (it is perfectly finished and even comes with underfloor cooling and totally silent air-conditioners, and a security system). 2. The well stocked, and large supermarket right next door, means you can just pop out for milk, or pick up fresh bread for breakfast without having to go anywhere. The staff are very friendly there and they stock local organic veg, and local cheese. Truly amazing. 3. Salt water swimming pool. No chlorine!!! It is a detail that makes a huge difference. 4. Andreas, the owner was amazingly friendly, and is obviously very proud of his place, he refurbished the place using original hand cut stone. He left us with many gifts, olive oil from his own trees, and even arranged for the place to be cleaned throughout the week. I could not recommend a better place. Thanks for a wonderful stay Andras and Kostas!

Wir haben in der Villa Sugar 10 sehr schöne Ferientage verbracht. Die Lage im kleinen Ort Episkopi ist ideal, ein Leihwagen ist jedoch ratsam. Es gibt kleine, leckere Tavernen in unmittelbarer Umgebung, die alle empfehlenswert sind. Zum Meer sind es ca. 4 km. Ein Supermarkt ist direkt nebenan, was natürlich super praktisch ist. Man kann mit dem Einkaufswagen direkt nach Hause fahren. Die Schlafzimmer sind geräumig, die Schränke groß und die Betten sehr bequem. Auch die Sonnenliegen und der Pool sind toll. Was dringend verbessert werden muss ist die Aussenbestuhlung, sowohl am Esstisch als auch die "Lounge-Ecke". Sehr unbequem! Auch die Küchenausstattung benötigt dringend eine Auffrischung. Viele Küchenutensilien sind billigster Art und teilweise kaputt oder nicht vorhanden. Wir hatte dennoch eine tolle Zeit und das Haus hat definitiv Potential. Da ist jedoch noch Luft nach oben. Der Vermieter ist super nett, kümmert sich und seine Mutter bringt leckere selbstgemachte Leckereien vorbei. Das hat man auch nicht überall.

Villa Sugar is a spectacular villa suitable for a large family or 4 couples. View of the coast line is fabulous. Convent location away from crowds but within a few meters of grocery store. Can walk to several local restraunts with outstanding local food and above average hospitality. Andreas the owner very pleasant to deal with.
