These Villas are beyond perfect. Spacious,well equipped,clean,luxurious,in a private location with spectacular views to the town and coast. They are perfect for large groups of families and friends. Elevated above the town, but only a few minutes drive or taxi ride gets you to the beautiful old town with plenty of good restaurants and shops. Taxi cost €7 each way. The villas have everything you need and more ,the bedrooms are a good size as is the kitchen and lounge area. Outside is perfect with plenty of seating areas and sunbeds for a lazy day by the pool. The gardens and pool are well maintained by Manos. The cleaners visited twice during the week we were there changing all beds and towels and cleaning the villa throughout. Maria was amazing and nothing was too much trouble. If you want a large villa in a perfect location you won't find better than Konossos Villas.

The 3 nights we spent at the Villa Pacifai were just perfect!.
We were a group of 15 people aged between 21 and 24 and everybody had a great time. We saw pictures of the Villa on several websites and our expectations for the place were already pretty high but arriving there and seeing the estate exceeded our expectations. The Villa was very clean and the welcoming gifts of the owner made us immediately feel welcome. Maria and Nikos were very obliging and helped us out whenever we needed advice for a restaurant, a trip or anything else.
All in all everybody had a great time and we strongly recommend this place if you want to stay as a group or with your family in Rethymno.

We rented both villas as had a large group of adults travelling to Rethymnon for our wedding,when we arrived I was speechless the villas are even more beautiful in real life then in the pictures(hard to believe as the pictures are amazing too) Maria,Manos and the cleaners are the friendliest most helpful people I have ever met nothing is too much!they even sourced a birthday cake for one of our party for us, above and beyond is the only way is can describe the service we received!We had an amazing week relaxing,cooking bbqs and playing ping pong. We also traveled with our little girl who is 3 and half and she loved playing in the park. The views are spectacular and breathtaking.the cafe/shop at the end of the road serves the most delicious pastrys too. We will definitely be back soon!

We had a fantastic holiday in this beautiful villa every convenience for a family holiday. Maria and manos both very friendly and helpful . Also the cleaning staff were brilliant.
fantastic views from the garden and a wonderful swimming pool . Very safe for the children.
inside the villa is very modern with 2 living areas .which is great for a large group.
I would recommend this villa to large family groups. I particulary liked the hot and cold water dispenser in the kitchen.

“Perfect villa”
Reviewed 9 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We came here in early May with a large group that included three babies and a young child.

After the pictures and information we had seen beforehand we were expecting it to be a nice place but it exceeded our expectations by far, I don't think the pictures do it justice at all!

From the moment we arrived, tired after a long delayed journey, we were greeted by Maria and left to order food from a recommended restaurant nearby, which was useful after the journey we'd had. I don't think we could really fault anything from that point on, Maria and the staff were attentive and always on hand to answer questions or provide recommendations, the place was spotlessly clean, including the pool and gardens, which surrounded the whole villa and made it feel very private, but then with the amazing panoramic view out over the town and the sea below. Every facility seemed to be provided, from dishwashers and utensils to filtered water taps (which were really useful) and all the BBQ equipment/charcoal we needed, as well as enough highchairs and cots for the babies. They even offered a service for someone to cook a Greek meal for the group and deliver it to the villa, something we took up one night and would recommend it.

The place was peaceful and quiet and in a good location, although you do need a car as it's a fairly long walk down into town. However, the bakery is great at the end of the road, they got a lot of trade from us over the week!

The pool was brilliant, if a bit cold, but we were there fairly early in the season and we soon got used to it and spent a lot of time in it! Kids pool was great for the babies too.

I think we all would return here again in future without a question.
