An enjoyable stay in this lovely and cosy villa which suited us as a family of five.
We had a very warm welcome from the host who had dinner ready for when we arrived in the early evening. He brought in freshly baked bread the following morning for breakfast. He was helpful with suggestions for day trips and places to visit also when we had a problem, he went out of his way to help us which was much appreciated.
The villa was very well maintained and in nice surroundings with a lovely clean pool which we used on a frequent basis.
We booked to stay here because we have family nearby. The villa is nicely situated on the edge of a charming village and the accommodation is clean, funky and functional, with lots of original art. Everything works, and the space is nicely set out. The welcome and communication was good.
We were so happy with our choice of Villa Notos. The villa was spacious and clean in lovely garden surroundings with a pool. Our host, Kostas, was super nice and helpful. He had dinner waiting for us at our evening arrival and a nice gift basket of local products. The next morning he brought breakfast rolls and bread then spent time giving us maps and suggestions for our week. The village has some small places to eat that are within walking distance but in general, you need a car. We were able to park our car directly across the street from our Villa. The Rethymno area is centrally located on the island and is a great location for day trips in all directions. Only recommendation would be for a booster for a stronger WiFi signal in the villa.
Villa Notos is a verey nice place to stay if one wants to seasight and travel across Crete. It is very close to Rethymno and only 5 min to a bus stop.
Rooms are neat, pool is small but nicely fittet to the area.
The owner is very hospitable and charming - nice guy to talk to ;)
Generally I can recommend it for sure.
We've stayed at Diktamos Villas for one week and enjoyed the peace of the countryside not far from Rethymno that was full of tourists. We liked the atmosphere of the house, making Greek salad every morning in the big kitchen and eating it on the terasse with sea view. It's a good place to stay if you want to see the island by car and also if you want to keep your kids safe still being able to enjoy the beauty of the Old Town of Rethymno, amazing food at Taverna Knossos in the Venetian Port and have a swim in the sea.
