No hesitation, it's just amazing
Valia is a super host, the pictures show exactly how the house is in reality. A lot of spaces, nice rooms, everything is cool. It's a real pretty village, rent a car is an obligation if you want visit this fantastic place, creta ! I will return, as a well-known movie's character
Dear Marc, we really appreciate your great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Rustic, pretty house but a little too remote for us.
Despite a few negatives we did enjoy our stay here. The garden is lovely and the house is rustic but dark inside and fairly basic. The village is mostly quiet but apart from the taverna next door there are no other facilities and it's a good 10 minutes drive to get even basic provisions. The house doesn't have a welcome book and whilst Dora is available any time for problems or advice, it would have been good to have a book to refer to for information on where to take rubbish, recycling, washing machine instructions, etc. We didn't realise that someone was coming to clean and when she opened the gate and walked in we had no idea what was going on. The photos could do with updating as there is no longer a lovely view of the mountains from the upstairs terrace, just trees. There is no vegetable garden (area is now fake grass) and it's a case of moving every so often to chase the sun if sunbathing as the garden is, whilst very pretty, very shady with lots of trees. The fruit tree over the sunbeds at the top of the pool is a bit of a hazard as the fruit hangs low and it's difficult to easily access the area. The pool is a good size for just dipping in to to cool off but as we only had 2 days at the house we didn't get to use it much. The kitchen is more basic than I expected, no microwave as stated and the filter coffee machine needs looking at as the glass jug easily falls from the handle. There is also an open drain on the floor in the ensuite bathroom covered with a mat, which we weren't aware of till we stood on it. The self contained apartment upstairs is much lighter, has a good sized bath tub and lovely seating area. You should also be aware that you will probably get bitten by mozzies and perhaps ants but appreciate there's nothing that can be done about that. We were covered in repellent and burnt the smoky rings and still got some impressive bites but after a few nights stayed away from the house on an evening to minimise the chances. Fortunately our second week in another area didn't have any biting pests.
Aware that there are a few negative issues, and I'm coming across as a real moaner, but we still enjoyed our week here! The area is beautiful and well placed for good days out exploring. There is a lovely village called Melidoni a short drive away with a great restaurant called Carob and Olive. We ate here a number of times and the food was great.
Thank you for having chosen our Villa for your holidays and for having set aside some of your valuable time to share your feedback with us and with fellow travellers online.
We appreciate the description of the Villa service and facilities, we are glad to know that you had a great time staying with us. We thank you for your feedback on the points that require our attention and we will continuously intensify our efforts to enhance our services and ensure the complete satisfaction of our guests and for this we count on the constructive and valuable feedback from each one of our guests.
The house has a Cretan signature rustic design layout and there is sufficient light and warmth inside whilst, location and layout is in detail described in all our online channels for all our guests. Welcome book will be implemented the soonest possible, and in regards to the photos we regularly update them prior to the season however, the tree structure in Crete changes fast. We have replaced the garden area with grass to ensure a wider lounge area for our guests and we have a gardener available and the trees in the villa has been one of our distinctive advantages in regards to nature and natural shadow. We would have been able to support you immediately with any queries or additional support, concerning the filter coffee machine, the microwave and the drain maintenance in the en suite bathroom, and we feel sad that we could not been given the opportunity to satisfy you with the above. For the mozzies and the ants it is as you mention, something beyond our control as Crete is rather rich of them.
We hope that you will return for another visit in the not so distant future and allow us the pleasure of offering you our services once again.
Beautiful house and perfect location
The house is beautiful and the gardens stunning - with lots of trees it meant there was sun but also shade so the children didn't get sunburn. I wish I had read the description more carefully as we hadn't realised the third bedroom was in a totally separate section so with little children, we didn't feel happy being apart from them but the owners were extremely helpful and we put a zip bed in the downstairs room so all the children slept together - so they were very happy and we were in the room next door. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and very well looked after.
Dear Alex, we are truly happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to welcome you "home" again! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
This villa is set in the center of a peacful and scenic village. The villa is an old building that has been tastefully modernised. The courtyard and pool give the place that "wow!" factor. The tree offers shade, but there are plenty of sunny areas. The villa manager left us alone, but was always at the end of a text with any questions we had and she was very quick to respond. A car is needed here as the village is in the hills and a 5 minute drive from the nearest main road which leads to the nearest supermarket. The villa is next door to the tavern and I recommend the food (Which they deliver). Being next to the tavern is not an issue as it is very quiet. We have rented villas with pools most years for the last 16 years, and this one is up there with the best, if not the best, we have stayed in. Thank you for a perfect holiday.
Dear Roy, we really appreciate your great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
A traditional Cretan home, tastefully converted as a holiday villa
I think this has to be the most relaxing villa I have ever stayed in. The property is so evocative, the courtyard is a Venetian styled Cretan area with its own fruit trees shading it. Every one of the locals was friendly, the area is stunning. We really enjoyed this beautiful villa.
In the surrounding area we took in the castle at Rethymno (nice views and a good walk, but more a pile of rubble than a castle these days). The town is a bit touristy but the old bit is nice to wander around. The beach at Perama was a good place for the kids. We also walked the Mili Gorge (well worth it only about 4K but a beautiful walk). We had lunch as the Banana restaurant at the bottom where they called us a taxi to take us back to our car..
Not far from the villa is Melidoni where we found a well-rated restaurant on Trip Advisor (Carob and Olive) which was excellent. The drive there was also stunning and the village is very beautiful. We also spent an hour or two in Margarites village. There is loads of really nice local pottery - some modern, some traditional as well as a monastery on the hill with spectacular views and a beautiful garden.
We also visited Elitherna - an archaeological site of major significance. It was pretty disappointing. I think you’d need to be a real archaeology buff to find much of interest.
By and large the whole experience was wonderful, not least Eleni’s Stately Home.
Dear David, we really appreciate your great review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to Crete! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Beautiful villa in a rural location. Cretan people all extremely helpful and friendly.
Lovely clean and well equipped villa. Local taverna that delivered meals was a welcomed extra. Brilliant pool and bbq area. People all amazingly helpful and friendly. Outside area excellent but seating needs updating. Great holiday had by all.
Dear Patrick, thank you for your kind review and we really appreciate the feedback. It was our pleasure having you as our guests! I am glad to reassure you that we will certainly update the seatings ! Regards, ThinkVilla Team.
Elenin komea koti sijaitsee Episkopin kylässä. Kylä, jolla on muinainen historia ja perinteiset elämäntavat, on ihanteellinen paikka oppia tapoja, perinteitä ja kokea aito maaseutuelämä. Myös kylissä ja muutaman metrin päässä vieraat löytävät alueellisen tavernan sekä perinteisen kahvilan.
Koko alueen vierailijaa kutsutaan kävelemään tietyllä luonnonkauneudella sijaitsevalla alueella, ihailemaan tärkeitä monumentteja ja kokemaan tavanomaista paikallista vieraanvaraisuutta. Meillä on ilo tarjota ihastuttavaa aluetta retkille tai lomalle yhdistämällä luonnontieteilijöiden ja arkeologisten reittien yhdistelmät, jotka muodostavat kokonaisuutena tärkeän kokemuskartan.
Garazon kylässä, joka on 10 minuutin ajomatkan päässä, vieraat löytävät supermarkkinat päivittäisiin tarpeisiinsa.
15 minuutin ajomatkan päässä sijaitsevasta Peraman kaupungista löydät kaiken tarvittavan, kuten kaupat, leipomot, ruokakaupat, lihakaupat, tavernat, kahvilat, supermarketit, pankkiautomaatit, apteekit, huoltoasemat ja posti.
Myös Panormo on ystävällinen merenrantakylä, joka on noin 20 minuutin ajomatkan päässä ja joka on tunnettu hiekkarannoistaan. Kaksi päärantaa ovat Limanaki ja Limni. Molemmat ovat hiekkaisia ja kirkkaan sinisellä vedellä, ja ne ovat ihanteellisia lapsille, koska ne ovat matalia ja hyvin suojattuja tuuilta. Rannat on järjestetty ja varustettu aurinkotuoleilla ja sateenvarjoilla. Vesiurheilulajeja on myös saatavana. Kylän edessä oleva satamaranta on alueen satama, jossa veneet sitovat, tämä ranta on järjestämätön.
Kylässä on kaikki tarvitsemansa mukavuudet: hyvin varustetut minimarkkinat, posti, apteekki, lääkärin vastaanotto, lihakauppias, leipomo (kuuma, tuore leipä joka aamu klo 9), erilaisia lahjakauppoja ja perinteisiä merenrantakauppoja erittäin kohtuulliseen hintaan.
Lisäksi siellä on hyvä valikoima kahviloita ja erinomaisia perinteisiä tavernoja, joista on näkymät satamaan ja merelle. Ne tarjoavat lämpimän vastaanoton ja kauniit puitteet nauttia perinteisiä kreetalaisia ruokia, kalaa ja kansainvälisiä ruokia.
