“Utterly amazing place to go for a peaceful and relaxing break in the sun”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is a very well equipped house, providing a holiday location literally off the beaten track, allowing you to experience the real Crete. The pool is well maintained and although being at the front of the property, it is incredibly private. We saw the local farmer drive past once each day and no-one else!
A hire car is a real necessity but a little run around did the job for us - no need for a 4x4. The house is really easy to find, following the directions from the airport and we found the local drivers not to be as scary as we thought they would be!
It is approximately an easy 20 minute drive from Rethymnon, which is packed full of tavernas providing for tourists and locals alike. It is a town where parking is also a doddle and there are plenty of activities, should you want to interact with other people!
If you are looking for a peaceful getaway then there is nothing that this villa can't offer you. The owner was very helpful and communicative when we booked, even sending us extra photos of the local area.

It is always wonderful to hear that our guests have loved the villa and area as much as we do. We wanted to make it a home from home,somewhere with everything you would want in your house.Glad we seem to be getting it right :)
