Beautiful villa 1 fotinari
Couldn’t ask for a better villa. Overlooking a gorgeous clear cove which was ideal for snorkelling villa had every appliance you could wish for. Stunning views from all bedrooms. Lovely hot tub. Immaculately clean. So many areas to sit and sun bathe. Beautiful pool. 10 min walk into pkakias. Loads of supermarkets there. Wish we were still there. Highly recommend. Great service from villa hosts.

Beautiful villa with everything you need
Our first visit to Crete and this villa was perfect. The views over the sea were incredible and something I would never grow tired of! Villa is really well appointed with everything you need for a great holiday. We felt very well looked after during our stay and even got a great deal on a hire car through the agents. Highly recommended.

What a great place to stay!
From the moment we arrived we were delighted with the villa. Beautifully presented, well equipped and with a fabulous view of the ocean. We paid to heat the pool and thought that was worth every penny - marvellous. The hot tub on the upper floor gave another great view of the ocean and was a joy to use. The pool was checked every day and housekeeping was carried out a couple of times during our visit. We can’t really fault the villa. We also met the owner and she was very helpful. The agent that we booked through - Etouri- were also very helpful and on hand for anything we required. We took advantage of booking a chef for both a dinner and a breakfast and would thoroughly recommend that service. There is no doubt that when we next visit Crete we will stay at the villa again.

Excellent!!
This place is amazing! The view from the villa is gorgeous, you want to enjoy it every minute! The villa itself is fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Near excellent wild beaches, and if you want comfort, these beaches are a 10-15 minute walk away. Nearby is Plakias, where you can eat and buy everything you need. Olga deserves special attention! She is simply amazing, responsive, ready to help with any question, solve any problem. Our family says special thanks to her for our great vacation!

Beautiful Villa
Well equipped villa with stunning sea views in lovely situation. Small, hardly used beach a couple of minutes away. Plakias village with plenty of tavernas and nice beach about 25 minutes walk. Soda Bay about a fifteen minute walk with a beautiful beach and a couple of tavernas (Delfini particularly recommended).

Beautiful villa with the best service
We had a wonderful stay in this great villa. The whole villa is very stylish and is very clean. We especially liked that the kitchen is completely equipped. The house is quiet and only a few meters from a small and quiet beach. Many thanks to the whole team. We'll be back!

Peaceful, serene decadence!
Amazing holiday in an incredible villa! Villa Fotinari 1 has everything you could need and more. 180 degree sea views from every room in the villa, modern and luxurious furnishings, an absolutely spectacular heated infinity pool, and a great undercover BBQ area for evenings. Literally cannot fault this place and you absolutely get what you pay for. Although I booked through Etouri rentals (best villa management in Crete), the on-site staff at Fotinari were amazing. We had cleaners every 3 days and the pool was also checked daily. The BBQ was even cleaned for us daily as well! The 1.6km walk into Plakias was wonderful in the evenings for an evening meal in a sea-front Taverna, and the local butcher/baker/ice-cream maker provided us with great holiday treats as well! Overall just an incredible holiday, would highly recommend!
