Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Finding a villa that meets both my high expectations and that of two teenagers is no easy feat. This year we aced it! Villa Dris met and exceeded all our expectations.
from the very first contact with the owner (Veronica) I had a feeling that this years holiday was going to be a good one.
We were met in the village by a very kindly Dimitris who didn't seem to mind one bit it was 2am when we finally pulled up (after a very easy drive from Chania airport). The villa was immaculate and had everything you could possibly need and Dimitris had kindly brought us the provisions I had pre-ordered for our breakfast.

Having arrived in darkness, the next morning was absolutely wonderful, as we went from room to room throwing open the windows and breathing in the warm morning breeze and stunning views. Stepping out from the master bedroom straight round to the pool area became my favourite way to start each day.

Needless to say , the teenagers were extremely happy with...

Management response:

I spent 2 weeks at Villa Dris with my wife, 1 year old son and 3 friends. It was a simply beautiful place and a wonderful stay. Set on a tranquil hillside with spectacular views of the sea and mountains it was a perfect hideaway.

20 minutes drive to the bars and restaurants of Rethymno and a similar distance to beaches we loved afternoons lounging by the pool and evenings barbecuing watching the sun set. The local village is a 5 minute drive and has a great little taverna (feeding the villagers with delicious local food and savage raki!). There is also a bakery and small supermarket. Everything we needed was on the doorstep.

The villa was clean, comfortable and fitted out with everything we needed. The pool was perfect. The views absolutely made it. A have not stayed in a more lovely location, really really beautiful. Hard to fault, great value - heartily recommended.

Management response:

Thanks so much for your lovely review. We're really pleased you enjoyed our villa and wonderful location as much as we do. Veronica & Robin
