Family wedding at Agreco Farms
Beautiful villa with fabulous views across the countryside and out to sea. We were given a warm reception by the owner and his wife despite our plane being late and arriving around 3am. They had very kindly prepared a meal for us and gave us a full tour of the villa. The fridge was well stocked too with everything you'd need for breakfast/lunch. We made firm friends with the little cat who came to visit us - he was very sweet and knew how to work us for treats and attention. We did hire a car but I wouldn't say it was absolutely necessary as taxis were able to find us and prices were reasonable. Thank you again for having us, we really enjoyed it.

Perfect villa
Hara villa was a lovely base to stay for our holiday we where welcomed with a delicious hot home cooked meal on our arrival even though it was passed midnight! The villa had everything we needed, the views from the terrace the swimming pool where lovely it is in a small village but you can walk to the local tavern who welcome you and you share in local village life. Rethymno is a 15 min drive away and we enjoyed eating out, the beach and shopping there. A lovely place we would definitely recommend and lovely hosts who made us welcome thank you.

Vakantie 2019
Wij verbleven een week in de Villa om ons 35-jarig huwelijk te vieren met onze kinderen en partners, we waren met 7 volwassen. De villa was perfect! een goed zwembad en terras met prachtig uitzicht over de bergen en de zee. Er was ook een heerlijke plek om te eten in de schaduw van een boom. Wij kregen een super warm welkom van de vrouw van Giannis (de eigenaar van de Villa) ze had eten voor ons gemaakt en in de koelkast stond een lekker koel drankje klaar! Later in de week zijn we nog een dagje uit geweest met Giannis hij laat je met plezier bezienswaardigheid in de buurt zien. Verder ook dank aan reisbureau Etouri voor de goede service en begeleiding, je kon met alles bij ze terecht! Speciale dank aan Kostas! Kortom heerlijke vakantie gehad! fam. van Uffelen uit Barneveld/Nederland

Wonderful Villa, very kind hosts
We were staying for a week in August/September 2018 with 8 persons. Villa Hara was totally perfect. It was clean and very good equipped. The rooms were nice, especially the first floor was wonderful. Outside you have a pool and a big terrace that contains room for sunbeds as well as a table for 6 persons with a beautiful view of the sea. A big shutout to the friendlyness and kindness of the hosts. Beginning with a tour to the nearest supermarkets, restaurant and beaches, delicious greek food provided and an open ear if you have questions about what to do and where to go in crete, they were always there for us. We had a perfect time at Villa Hara, it was even better than we could have exspected.

A special thanks to John and his wife for all the little things they did for us ( local and homemade food, advises, ...) during the whole stay ! You can book with your eyes shut !

Wonderful vacation in Crete with friends!
We spent a wonderful time at Villa Hara. The villa is absolutely made for holiday with friends. The house is well equipped and offers more than enough opportunities to rest. We were with 6 adults and 3 children aged 7, 12 and 15 years. The villa is well equipped with everything that is needed for the normal daily routine. Some of the equipment has reached a bit its point of obsolescence, but everything was ready for use and if something was broken the landlord Jannis fixed it immediately. By the way Jannis and his wife Chrissa are wonderful and warmhearted hosts. They live next door and are there whenever they are needed. You can’t have a better guide than Jannis. All his recommendations were always excellent – whether we asked him for restaurants, beaches or excursions. At this point: thank you again so much Jannis and Chrissa. We really felt very comfortable being your guest! Crete is such a big island and offers so many of beautiful destinations. Best is to talk to Jannis what kind of trip/restaurant/whatever you prefer, he will give you the perfect advice. The wonderful terrace on the top of the main-building is perfectly made to spend cozy evenings with a breathtaking view over the countryside and the coast that is about 5 km away. In the morning you can even see the sun rising from it. The pool has a size of approximately 20 m² (depth approx 1.40 m) and offers always a perfect refreshment. By the way: a visit to Baja Beach is also suitable for children. Baja Beach is a beach club in Rethymon (10 minutes’ drive from the Villa Hara), which has a wonderful sandy beach, several pools, nice places to have lunch - and water slides which the children liked that much. A special thanks goes to the Etouri-team for the absolutely great organization. Every question was answered immediately by Costas. We gave a recommendation already to a friend of us.

Wonderful stay
We (7 persons) enjoyed our stay at Villa Hara very much. There is enough space for everyone, it was very clean and it has a wonderful view. It is a good placeto start sightseeing tours or go to the coast to spend a day at the sea. Especially the children enjoyed the pool very much. The hosts very very kind, we got all the information we needed and sometimes they offered some typical food. It was a very nice week for us.
