We had a wonder ful time here. This villa has everything and more of what any tourist would want. Kostas has been extremely helpful. His mum and dad were there checking if we were comfortable. It is a family run place and your won't be disappointed. Amenities are close by and you get to taste the fresh grapes everyday. We loved it and we will go back again

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Cretan Vineyard Hillside Villa. From the moment we arrived Kostas was the perfect host. He met us at the airport and showed us to the villa where a freshly made cake was waiting for us. He took us to the local shops and advised us about the best butchers, baker and supermarket. Kostas and his family were wonderful, giving us freshly laid eggs, lemons, olive oil, grapes and wine from their vineyard. Kostas’ mother also made us a wonderful Cretan meal one evening. The villa is beautifully designed with a pool, gym table tennis table and a kitchen that has everything you need. We were given new towels, bath robes and fresh linen every 3-4 days. We cooked at the villa some days, ate out and also ordered food from local restaurants at an excellent price (with help from Kostas). I can’t recommend the villa highly enough. If you stay there the only piece of advice I would give you is that you are likey to want to hire a car as you will want to buy food locally and you may want to drive to the beach. We really enjoyed a trip to the Palace of Knossos and went to the dive school and beach at Agia Palagia, both of which are great. We also had a lovely day trip to Matala beach. We had a perfect holiday for 2 families with children aged 17 to 20.

This is an unconventional review: high praise for a place we were unable to visit! We were forced to cancel our stay planned for June because of the Corona pandemic. My wife is a physician and it would have been impossible for her to go on vacation this summer. When we cancelled, Airbnb informed us that we were only entitled to a 50% refund of our rental fee. However, our host Kostas informed us that he would waive the cancellation fee and refund all our deposit, even though he was not required to do so. Kostas is a rarity--someone willing to do the right and honorable thing. I can only imagine how good a host Kostas must be. We intend to find out someday when we rebook our stay in his lovely home. If you're looking for a host with integrity, look no further.

This place was INCREDIBLE. They have truly thought of everything to make you feel welcome in their beautiful villa. From the moment we arrived and they greeted us we knew it was going to be a fantastic stay. The views from every window in the villa are amazing. The accommodations are very well thought about and designed for. They have thought of everything. Kostas and family were so welcoming and accommodating. It was our first time ever in Crete and they made us feel very special. This villa is truly a very special place. Highly recommend staying here!

חופשה מקסימה עבור המשפחה המורחבת. הוילה מתוחזקת להפליא, יש בה כל מה שצריך כדי לשהות בכיף ובנוחות, המארחים מאוד מסבירי פנים ומשתדלים להענות לכל בקשה, פגשו אותנו בשדה תעופה, ליוו אותנו למקום האירוח, סיפקו לנו מצרכים למקרר לפני הגעתינו. היה כיף לצאת מהוילה , להיכנס לכרם ולקטוף ענבים, כמו כן יש עוד מלא עצי פרי נוספים. הנוף מהמם. וילה נמצאת כ-20 דקות נסיעה משדה תעופה. לפני עזיבה קיבלנו מבעלים ששמו קוסטאס שמן זית, צימוקים ויין מתוצרת עצמית. היתה לנו חופשה נהדרת והשאירה טעם של עוד.

This was already our second stay in this wonderful place and it won't even be the last. You can't describe in words how beautiful and perfect the location and the house are. You have everything you need right there and it's also just 10 minutes away from the beach or Iraklion. But the most special thing is that you feel like being at home. Kostas and his wonderful family are really the best hosts you can imagine. I just can recommend to everybody to come to this beautiful place and enjoy the view, the pool and the silence! Thank you Kostas and we will see each other again next year in our "second home" :-)

5 Star experience across the board: Location, accommodations, amenities and owner hospitality. Our visit to Crete was made extra special by our stay at Cretan Vineyard Hill Villa. From the moment we landed we knew it would be perfect, as Kostas met us at the car rental to ensure we didn’t have any trouble finding the villa. The villa and views were even more breathtaking than the pictures on line: the fresh fruit trees outside our front door, the vineyard surrounding the villa, beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Our adult children enjoyed playing pool and ping pong. We all enjoyed relaxing by the pool. But what made the stay truly exceptional was the kindness and hospitality of Kostas and his family. We felt like old friends the moment we met them. They welcomed us with wine from their vineyard and homemade goodies. We spent five days in Crete before heading off to Santorini and Athens. We toured the island, visiting the beautiful countryside and beaches. You are close to everything from this location. We wish we had stayed longer on this beautiful, friendly island. There is lots to explore and the people of Crete are warm and welcoming to tourists. We will definitely be back to visit this magnificent villa and the island of Crete.

This villa is perfect in every way. The house itself, an architect designed masterpiece, is beautiful, comfortable and incredibly well equipped. The location, in the middle of the owner’s vineyard, is delightful. The view is expansive and lovely. The best aspect is Constantine and his family. Constantine answered my emails immediately, gave great advice, met is in the city to lead us to the villa. His mother made us absolutely delicious Cretan dinners two nights in a row.

Let me start by saying we wish we could give this place and host more than 5 Stars! The property is amazing. Just the perfect location to step away from everyday reality! Placed perfectly 10 minutes away from Heraklion city center, and within 2 hours drive from East to West of the island if you want to explore ( Driving was super easy BTW). Up the hill and overseeing the blue ocean waters, with other hill surrounding you. The villa itself has everything you could possibly need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Costas the host and his family were so friendly and pleasant, there were available when we needed them and had some great suggestion that made our trip just AMAZING! They cooked us an authentic meal and brought wine from the vineyard and it was just a heavenly combination. They are the nicest people I’ve ever met and I’m so glad we stayed at their property. Thank you Costas for helping make our trip memorable and we will be returning soon! Fadia and Jon Crete Trip 2018

we just came back fro Crete. We had a wonderful time in Kosta's place. The villa is unique, new, very clean, well equipped, with a Gym, pool, place to do your own Pizza and Barbecue, Kosta and is family are the best hosts a guest can fream on in a sta\range country. He met us in the airport, prepared us food in the fridge and his mom made us delicious cake and moussaka. We had the opportunity to taste from his wine and his father's olive oil. I hope we will be able to return soon.
