Fantastic villa with its own pool in a quiet village. Local shops in walking distance. Short distance to town of Rethymnon and beach. Very friendly and helpful owners, nothing was too much trouble for them. We hired a car for the week to get around the island. Villa was in a good position to explore the island. We would highly recommend coming here.

“Beautiful villa”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A beautiful well equipped villa that has a great BBQ area, in a village that has everything you need. George and Maria are lovely hosts and go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The village is small but has a good supermarket, bakery and ice cream shop. The 2 Tavernas that we tried served excellent food and were very good value for money. The bus- service to Rethmyno is good but the timetable seems flexible - be prepared to wait outside the bakery and watch the world go by!

“110% satisfied”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I can only sum up our stay in Villa Elia with one word, PERFECT. George and his mother and sister really fulfilled our expectations. From the first to the last contact they acted very nice and professional. All questions we had before and during our stay we got answers to promptly. Next time we visit Crete we will definitely book the same villa again.

“Stylish spacious villa in a great location - quiet yet in the middle of a real Cretan working village”

From the first email George and his family's kindness and generous nature shine through. He arranged a pick up for us from the airport and back, and a splendid breakfast arrived every morning - you can literally eat like a king before 10 am without lifting a finger. The villa is set back from the village beyond a gate and is very quiet and chilled out. The interiors are nicely decorated and the Wi-Fi is spot on, with a well stocked kitchen, proper bath tubs and a great set up by a decent pool. Within five minutes you've an awesome ice cream parlour - worth a visit on its own - a patissiere, two decent supermarkets an ATM and a couple of proper Cretan tavernas, not to mention a couple of kebab shops that are genuinely brilliant. There's no need for a car in my opinion with a decent bus service and George happy to get you a car any time. I'd stay again and suggest others do the same. The villas are really spacious and suit families, friends and couples. Highly recommended
