“A perfect stay”

My wife and I wanted to mark our 70th birthdays this year, and together with our three children, two children-in-law and four grandchildren between 6-10 years we had a two-weeks stay, a great success! The villa was absolutely perfect for our family holiday, with spacious and well furnished bedrooms, a large and well equipped kitchen/dining area with TV, outdoor area with a pool, and a lovely view.
The hospitality and generosity of the owners and their family was outstanding.
We arrived around midnight due to a flight delay, had some trouble finding the way caused by a malfunction of our GPS, but was guided by regular calls from the hostess, and met by a man on motorcycle when we arrived to guide us til the villa. The fridge full of food and wine/ homemade raki waiting for us on arrival, and later during our stay we had a huge homemade moussaka and a delicious dessert made by "Mum". Bedlinen and towels were changed twice a week together with complete cleaning of all rooms/outdoor space, and the pool was regularly cleaned.
The diversity of activities during our stay was great and suited all needs. We had several trips to Bali Beach, a perfect place for children, daily footwalks for some of us exploring the ruins of Ancient Eleftherna, strolls in the local village, shopping/evenings in Rethymnon, visiting Margarites with the ceramic stores and the lovely taverna Madalos, a visit to Knossos, the Crete Aquarium and Mona Arkadi. Three of us had a trip to Elafonisi, and our son and son-in-law even climbed Psiloritis, 2456 m.

I could go on and on, but to put it short, we all had a superb holiday experience with a lot of good memories, and I would highly recommend the villa for a relaxing and peaceful holiday.
Compliments also to Kostas who handled our booking in a professionell way from the very first day we were in contact, always there to help us to get a good holiday experience.

“A perfect stay!”

We booked the Villa with 5 couples and 2 small kids, for a period of 9 days..quite unusual but not an issue. The contact with the agent Kostas was easy & friendly, all inquiries were answered quickly, such as the request to have two baby cods & chairs available – no problem.

Prior to our arrival we received a Google Maps link which guided us literally to the door of the house, which was very useful as otherwise it would have been very difficult to find the villa. Kostas handed us over to the owners, Antigoni & Vasili who welcomed us at the house. The instructions were quickly done and what really surprised us was the fridge was already filled with all kinds of thing, as well as the cupboards with all the small stuff that is usually not there. On top of that they provided us with homemade honey, olive oil, raki, wine..truly amazing! We’ve been renting houses since 20 years now and have never had anything similar – outstanding!

The apartments were all very new, very clean and much more roomy than expected. The only inconvenient was that in order to get into one of the two 1st floor apartments you had to walk through the bedroom of the ground floor apartment..otherwise everything was just perfect, superfast WLAN, huge fridge in the common room, small kitchens in every apartment, great terrace etc. Antigoni & Vasili came over mid of the week to clean all apartments and to change the linen & towels and asked us regularly if we needed anything..

And what you have read from others about the Moussaka made by Antigoni’s mother it’s true..I’m not a big fan of Moussaka but this one was indeed excellent! Again, never had anything like this before, having a home-cooked meal brought to us (and I’ll just mention in brackets that they gave us another jar of honey and some souvenirs as well). Lastly, our 11 month old daughter caught some pretty high fever, and Antigoni contacted her kids’ doctor, who diagnosed angina. The next day I receive a phone call on my German mobile from Antigoni asking how the baby was doing..I think this says it all about the owners!

So if you don’t mind a 20 minute drive to the beach I and our whole crew can only fully recommend Villa Antigoni!

A final comment - beware of the (German) neighbor..for some reason he is hostile towards the owners and has tried to influence us negatively. A bit of a shady character who at the end even tried to “borrow” the WLAN code from us..better don’t!

“GREAT wedding venue in the Crete - made our special day extra special!”

My girlfriend and I wished get married at a scenic, romantic site in a sunny country and we found this wonderful Villa.

When we booked the villa, we were skeptical as it just seemed to be too perfect - however, when we arrived it turned out to be even more beautiful and perfect than we expected.

We were warmly welcomed by Kostas and family who had been so kind and thoughtful to fill the fridge with various local foods and Raki. They were very helpful during our stay and made it much easier for us to organize our wedding.

The Villa is wonderful, luxurious furnished, kitchenettes in 4 of the bedrooms, and a large and well equipped kitchen in the main room. All rooms are tastefully decorated with candles and paintings, and the outdoor area is truly breathtaking with a spectacular view of the gorge - and even the sea from the end of the pool. You can easily spend a week just enjoying this view!

We highly recommend this villa to everyone who are looking for a private stay in a charming small traditional Greek village - and especially for people like us, who were looking for a beautiful wedding venue.

From the very start of organising this holiday, it has been an easy and efficient process. Kostas who we booked the villa through was very responsive and helpful and was keen to make sure all questions we had were answered quickly and thoroughly. This villa was absolutely perfect for our family holiday. The bedrooms were spacious, immaculately clean, well furnished and cool.
The kitchen, lounge, dining area is perfect with top of the range furnishings and equipment. The view is lovely, the pool is great and the owners have thought of everything.



Apart from the fact that the villa was all that we wanted and more, the attentiveness and generosity of the owners and their family was outstanding. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble. We had a fabulous fridge full of food waiting for us on arrival, along with home made wine and home made Rakii. During our holiday 'Mum' made us a typically Portuguese desert and also a huge Moussaka - which incidentally was the best Moussaka I have ever tasted.
We arrived late due to a flight delay and even though it was midnight, they still met us at the junction on the main road and guided us to the villa....the bed linen and towels were changed 3 times a week and the pool was cleaned as regularly.
The villa is within walking distance of a Taverna and two little bars. The little village of Margaritas is about 10 mins drive away and has some lovely places to eat. The beaches are a bit further away but lovely.
I could go on and on but all I can say is the entire holiday experience was superb and I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a luxurious, peaceful holiday.
