“2nd year in paradise ”
Reviewed 13 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This was our 2nd year visiting Villa Aphrodite in Prines. Stella and her wonderful family provide a 5 star escape to heaven. Knowing we were returning to Aphrodite filled us with great confidence assured 100% EVERYTHING would be perfect.

The only bad thing was leaving and dealing with the 'post holiday blues' However, quickly cured by the fact we have booked Stella's other villa 'Artemis' for next year.

If you want a Cretan getaway with first class facilities and being looked after by the most charming family I have ever met.... book now.

Thank you Stella and your family for all your hard work ensuring we had the best holiday and a BBQ to die for. Generous beyond belief.

“Villa aphrodite.”
Reviewed 30 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This is the second year we have booked this villa. I would never want to go anywhere else now. The villa is clean inside and out in a lovely quiet location. I cannot explain enough how wonderful and kind Stella and all her family are, they all make you feel so welcome. Thank you to ruela for the wonderful mousakja, cheese pie, stuffed tomatoes and vine leaves. We had a wonderful bbq evening with you all. The villa is so well equipped with anything you need (including plenty of raki.) You can tell Stella, ruela, Dimitri, george and Maria really care about keeping the villa clean and care somuch about their guests. Can't wait to see you all again next year thanks again for making our holiday a memorable one.

It was really a wonderful trip, the surroundings are really attractive, good food, beaches nearby, the villa is superbe, with a well kept garden, flowers and everything you need.

The people who own the villa are really nice, they helped us a lot and were very very friendly !

“Heavenly aphrodite”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Villa Aphrodite is a beautiful place to spend a holiday. The house is very well equipped. The rooms are lovely and big, the terraces have all their very preferential time of use. The pool is wonderful.
The barbecue and the pizza oven are brillant.
But the best of Villa Aphrodite is Stella and her family. Their kindness and generosity is just wonderful. The moussaka left in the kitchen for our arrival was lovely and so many of the essentials were there. It just made our holiday.
Thank you Stella.

“A great villa with the best care we have ever had: we felt like at home”
Reviewed 30 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The location is great and the view from the villa is spectacular: sea and snowy mountains! The villa has everything you need, we are a family with two children (3.5 and 9 years old) and have not missed anything. The villa is very suitable for families with small children. We enjoyed the big garden, playground for the kids and, of course, the table tennis games. The service (laundry, cleaning, etc.) was just the best we had so far: we arrived late Saturday and found lots of treats and in the fridge everything you needed for breakfast. Thanks to Stella, Roula, Mary and Demitris! We will be back!
