“Amazing Villa! Everything you could ask for & more!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014
people found this review helpful

Our family of three, with a very typical teenage daughter stayed here for a week at the beginning of August. As soon as we booked the owners were always available & responded quickly to any emails if needed & they were even more lovely in person, always there if needed but not interfering. Giving little gestures as a welcome tray full of wine, Raki, cake & lots of other little Cretan delights & dropping of some lovely little pies & ice cream for my daughter.
The villa itself is very private but close enough to the restaurants & shops In Rethymno if you have a car, which I would suggest, as there is absolutely loads to see & do (though there is a bus stop just outside the villa which takes you to the incredible town.)
Inside the villa has everything that you could need over a very vast 3 levels, with a huge double& single with floor to ceiling wardrobes, balconies, air conditioning & media devices. On the lower floor was my daughter's chosen bedroom which can only be described as a small flat of its own. It had 2 single beds, own bathroom, utility room & all the same comforts as the rooms above but with an additional HUGE terrace with patio doors leading out. The living area was very modern & the kitchen was a perfect size. The outside area was totally beautifull!! Private parking, BBQ various seating & dining areas & the garden with it's array of flowers,plants & herbs combined with the views was amazing, my daughter especially loved the pool such a little sun trap. It looked so beautiful at night when the lights came on and the stars were out.
I can only say my only regret is coming for a week & no longer. We will be definitely be back to Crete & Althaea Villas.
