We were nothing short of impressed. A beautiful inviting villa, all new, comfortable and at a great location. Close enough to the highway but secluded enough to be running away from the crowds.
What can I say ? Brilliant right from the start, booked with confidence after Contacting George( The owner). Welcomed and met by George who took time out to show us every Modern feature of this bang up to date brand new Villa .
The location was perfect with a quiet rural feel but two minutes away from Rethymno and it`s bars, restaurants and Beaches.
Everything worked as it should in the Villa and my wife and 3 daughters loved the grounds and many terraces for sunbathing. In short a perfect place to stay and would love to come back. Thank you George for making our 2017 Holiday perfect
We stayed in Villa Ianthos for 1 week with our family (8 adults) and we really enjoyed it. The villa is very modern and beautiful and also outside the garden and swimming pool are great! Service is very good: Each day a man who cleans the pool and after 3 days cleaning and towel change. The owner, George, is very kind and helpful. He gave us great tips for restaurants and activities. The villa is located near to Rethimnon and also to a smaller village which has supermarket and a few restaurants. We visited Rethimnon, did a boat toar on sea, buggy/quad tour, walked the Imbrus gorge and visited some beaches and lakes. We had a great time and special thanks to George for all of his help and service.
There were 9 friends who went on this holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Ianthos. Not only was the villa pristine, the views stunning and the facilities fabulous, but also the owner (George) and agency staff were so helpful in the lead up and during the stay. They emailed me regularly showing details of the villa and answering any questions I may have had. There were several people I could contact in case of any problems during the stay. On arrival, George met us at the nearby supermarket in order to drive in convoy to the villa itself. He then lead us into the town and was so helpful as we were unfamiliar with Cretan roads and driving. The surroundings were so peaceful and secluded, with relatively easy access into nearby Astipopolou and Rethmyno. I would recommend this villa to anyone who fancies a brilliant group holiday or family stay.
|How easy was it to book the property?|
Absolutely everything was just perfect about Villa Ianthos and our stay there. For the architect's design, to the builders finish, to the furnishings, the support from the agent and their recommendations, to the cleaners every three days and the pool guy who came EVERY day.
Living in Cornwall England in the summer can be hectic with visitors to the county, so the secluded elevated position of Villa Ianthos was just bliss. And the back or the villa where the pool and BBQ are are TOTALLY hidden from the view of the road and the neighbouring house across the road. The Villa is just 5 minutes drive from old town Rethymnon (I counted about 5 spellings for the city) which is absolutely enchanting. And we didn't have a bad meal throughout the whole of our stay. One word of warning, we got 8 SOFT drinks at an Italian restaurant in Chania on the sea front and they charged us €33. This was the only time we felt we had been taken advantage of, other than that, we found EVERYONE on the Island of Crete REALLY welcoming and wouldn't hesitate recommending a holiday there. And if you can do that at Villa Ianthos you're going to have an AMAZING time!!! :0)
