“Just a perfect place for a family holiday”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This place is no longer an insider tip anymore... We told everybody, who wants to come down from stress to stay at vederi estate, to relax here. Nothing was missing, we were involded in george an his familiy already at the arrival. It was holiday from the first second on, the kids liked especially the pool and the little dogs, belonging to our holidy-grandma :-). There is no need to count every single item that made this summer holiday perfect. It was all perfect. Thanks to george, meni and poppi !!! We are already planning our summer holiday 2016 and hope to see you back again.

I know I am going to run out of space if I want to write everything I want to say. We stayed in Villa Alkioni for 8 nights in August of this year with our young girls (aged 9 and 7) and grandmother. From the initial inquiry with George we realised that this was going to be a first class holiday. George is professional and very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. We were met on arrival by Irene, who showed us around the gorgeous villa. It was only then that we realised on entering we had found paradise! The pool was immaculately clean along with the exterior grounds of the villa. This was maintained daily by Popi and Meni. The villa was modern and well equipped, We were home from home! The mattresses are amazing quality as well as the expensive iron beds and gorgeous soft towels. The wifi was a bonus as my husband had emails to catch up with. We discovered that there was a warm tray of Moussaka in the oven. Heaven! We can honestly say that it was the best we had ever tasted. It was made by Georges mother-in-law Meni with organic grown vegetables from the estate. We then discovered a full fridge of milk, cheese, Raki, tomatoes, cucumber, bread, fruits and cereal! This is unheard of in self catering villas without pre-ordering. We didn't need to find a supermarket for at least 3 days! What a wonderful surprise and welcome. This was totally unexpected but greatly received after a long journey from London. As the days progressed we enjoyed our time around the gorgeous pool that was cleaned every morning by Popi without us even knowing it! Reythmnon town was only a 10 minute drive away. It was our favourite town with beautiful cobbled streets and little shops, boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants. There are many beaches nearby which George recommended to us. This was invaluable as we were travelling with young children who wanted to know "are we there yet? every 5 minutes. George also recommended some fantastic restaurants for us to visit. Most are only a short drive from the villa. All in all, we relaxed the minute we arrived at the villa and were sorry to leave. We are still depressed and reminisce of our time spent there. A hidden gem, paradise waiting for you. Our fear now is that our next holiday enquiry with George will be met with "sorry we are fully booked for the next 10 years!". I wouldn't be surprised. Its worth the wait!

“Amazing, beautiful and peaceful”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I traveled with my 15 year old daughter and we had an amazing time here at Vederi Estates. Georges communication prior to our holiday was very reassuring and his recommondations for car hire, places to visit and restaurants in Rethymnon were spot on.
The Villa itself was beautiful, with everything you would need and more on your holiday. A food package is waiting for you with those essentials you need and extra as well. Meni's homemade Mousaka was a welcome and tasty surprise.
Poppy comes everyday and cleans the pools for you and the hygiene of the pool is spectacular, this is a salt water pool with a filter, no horrible chemicals are used and I have to say, I was particularly impressed with this.
I could go on and on about how wonderful this place is, the setting is beautiful and quiet. My daughter and I completely switched off here so if you like peace and quiet this is definitely a good place to go.
A big thank you to George, Meni and Poppy for there hospitality. We will be visiting Vederi again next year.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We had a wonderful stay at the Vederi Estate. George and family were most hospitable. The welcome pack was the one of the best we have encountered in 25 years of holiday rentals.

The cleanliness was second to non, Poppy looked after the outside like an angel.

The only thing that spoiled this possible peaceful tranquil place was the dogs, both on site and in the village, they barked morning, noon and night keeping us awake every night. Being in a valley the noise echoed around the hillside so 6 or 7 dogs soon sounded like a massive pack. Too noisy.
