Paradise in Crete
We had a great time in Villa Lofos. the house is beautiful,the photos fail to show what you can feel being there: the sense of intimacy, freedom, calm. There is everything you need.Plus, Nick and his family are perfect guests and they do always their best to make you feel welcomed. They filled the fridge with local products (some are made by their own hands), including a wonderful fruit basket and an excellent raki. The sea view fills the hearth with beauty. We will come again for sure, since the stay makes us feel very well.

Amazing stay
If you want to stay quiet but surrounded by famous touristic places, monuments and beaches this villa is what you are looking for. Situated a part from any noise, with very hospital hosts, this villa is 5 min drive from famous Festos, 10 min drive from Matala and closest beaches. Spacy and clean, the villa is in the middle of wide garden with beautiful plants. Everything is positive here.

Amazing place.
We had amazing time at this place. So beautiful nature, house, so warm welcoming.. What we liked most was that nobody around us, no neighbours just beauty of nature, mountains, view to the sea, calmness, stillness.. It's amazing place for to relax from the chaos of cities, from busy daily routine. And it's good as well that town, shops, restaurants are close if you need that. Highly recommend this villa.. Thank you, dear Nick for making such a wonderful place to be in..

Very good!
We enjoyed Villa lofos very well! It is in a beautiful place with a great view. A nice terrace to sit on and everything is very well organized. Nick responds very quickly if you have any questions and he pampers you with little things like selfmade cake, raki, melon and fresh water. We had a great holiday!

Fantastic villa and superb hosts!
We stayed at the villa for one week this April, for our honeymoon. We chose it for it's view and terrace, which didn't disappoint. The villa itself was well equipped with everything we needed and very comfortable. We stayed in and cooked a couple of evenings, and ate out the rest of the time. You do need a car if you stay here, but we found driving in Crete very easy. The track up to the villa is steep in places, but easy to manage with a bigger car - we certainly had no problems. Nick and his family were great hosts. They shared baked goods, eggs, fruit and honey with us which was fantastic, a real treat. We were also able to contact them at any time if we needed assistance with anything and they were always happy to help. They are some great beaches short drives from the villa, and a supermarket and other amenities in Vori, a few minutes drive away. It's also very close to the palace of Phaistos. We thoroughly recommend staying here -you won't be disappointed!

Tolles Grundstück in guter Lage
- tolles Grundstück mit mehreren Terassen zum Sitzen und Möglichkeit zum Liegen für 2 Personen - Außerordentliche Gastfreundschaft des Vermieters - als Willkommensgruß Weintrauben, selbstgemachte Konfitüren, Eier, Olivenöl u.v.m. - sehr abgelegen, ideal zum Ausspannen, allerdings Geräusche von Straße im Tal - die Grundstückseinfahrt ist ziemlich steil, aber für geübte Autofahrer kein Problem

Sublime hilltop views
This stay was an absolute pleasure. The Villa is secluded, but close enough to Vori to walk to the excellent tavernas, bakery, shop and pizzeria. It is a great base to explore the area, including the wine country, Matala beach and caves and Phaestos is right around the corner. Yes, there is a steep hill to drive up, but Nick offered an expert Cretan driving lesson which made it easy as the apple pie cake his mother baked for us to enjoy on arrival. Everything you need is catered for, including raki! Nick was an excellent host and was eager to help in any way to ensure we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. If you are looking for a getaway with lots of outdoor space to sit and soak up the sun and views, to relax with a book in the shade, or just to sit and watch the sublime sunsets, this is the place for you.

A lovely house with a gorgeous view
This secluded little house is beautifully placed on the hillside in between the olive groves. Its surrounded by a private garden and variety of seating areas so there is sun and shade when you want it during the day. Evenings were splendid with the setting sun over the sea and nights amazing with the milky way stretching over head. The house is open plan, comfortable and roomy. Nikos's Mum baked a delicious apple cake to welcome us and that along with the olive oil, eggs, biscuits etc made us feel really at home. The situation was perfect for us as it is close to archaeological sites but there are excellent beaches nearby too. As visitors in a foreign country who didn't speak or understand the language, Nikos and his family could not have been more friendly, caring and helpful.

Great Get Away - a home from home
I would completely recommend Villa Lofos. It has stunning views, perfect privacy and everything you could want supplied. The attention to detail provided by Nick and his family is what raises this rental above others. We arrived to a fridge stocked with home grown grapes and olives, bottles of water and home make jams and Raiki. Ice cubes in the freezer, tin foil, washing up liquid, a beach umbrella, Olive oil, herbs and so on. All the wee things that you need. We spent many a pleasant evening watching the sun set from one of the many outside seating areas. The outside shower was a bonus (don't worry, there's an inside one also)The road up to the Villa is very steep and not entirely sealed but we made it up in a mini cooper so not impossible. I'd advise you go for a car a little higher off the ground but this applies to Crete roads in general. They can be a bit bumpy. The villa is completely worth the drive though. Many thanks to Nick and Family for a perfect holiday. I'd also recommend Alekos Tavern in Vori, Kalamaki Beach, Lemonokipos Restaurant in Rethymno and Taverna Drymos at the Patsos Gorge.
