“Perfect spot for a family holiday”
Reviewed 6 September 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The villa is well-positioned, quiet (we heard some dogs, a little bit of poolside laughter and church bells, but not to disturb us), yet less than 10 minutes' walk from Prines, where Taverna Giannikos, amongst 3 good tavernas, offers a superb welcome. The property is tastefully decorated and immaculate. A great deal of thought has been given to what you might need during your stay - we have rarely rented anywhere so well equipped.

The family spent many happy hours in the pool, and the range of outdoor space is wonderful, with a a range of seating, loungers and tables to ensure there is always access to both sun and shade. There was plenty of outdoor space for the children to run around in. Rethymno, supermarkets, tavernas, beaches etc are all within very easy reach and it was very easy to visit the south coast, Chania, Heraklion and not too distant villages. Communication with Kostas and the etouri team was really excellent, significantly exceeding expectations - which had been set quite high by their excellent early communication when booking. The owner, Eleni, is very welcoming and brought some Cretan pastries, which were still warm and were utterly delicious! We don't often return to places we've already been as there's so much to see out there, but the children are already begging to go back and plans are afoot for a future year.

We couldn’t have asked for more of an idyllic villa. The quintessential property has a secure entrance, a beautiful pool and is great for children. The villa was immaculate throughout and the pool was well maintained. Prines is a lovely and quaint village with two very good tavernas (didn’t try the third). We would also strongly recommend visiting Rethymno with a plethora of fine dining experiences. All in all, the villa and host were fantastic.

“Idyllic, peaceful retreat in a beautiful spacious villa.”
Reviewed 1 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This villa lives up to the pictures and reviews. There is plenty of space, both inside and out, with a pool perfect for cooling down. The villa itself looks great located in spacious grounds with all the amenities you could need. It could do with a couple of extra loungers if you have a full house. Pool cleaning and linen change was good. We had 2 weeks there and thoroughly fell in love with the place. Peaceful - yes. Secluded - mostly. The location is good, but you do need a car. A couple of minutes to local supermarket and 10 minutes into Reth. We would love to come back!

“Simply Perfect!”
Reviewed 2 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This villa is of the highest quality. We had a wonderful stay here and only wish we had stayed longer. The property itself is immaculate, very well equipped and the owner has an incredible eye for detail, giving the house a wonderful sense of character, whilst making sure it is suitably comfortable. The outdoor area and pool are superb, making it the perfect place to relax or have fun with kids. The location is ideal. You can walk easily (8 mins) to Prines for essentials, or for a fantastic meal at Taverna Giannikos. It is a short drive to a number of local supermarkets or Lidl, if you prefer the familiarity! The lovely Episkopi beach and delightful Lake Kournas are not far and there are plenty of other areas to explore within easy reach. Eleni, the owner, is very welcoming and happy to assist if needed. She even treated us to delicious home baked Cretan pies! Kostas and his team at Etouri are also readily available to help make your stay even more comfortable. We have stayed in plenty of holiday houses before, but this is undoubtedly the best yet. As already mentioned, it is simply perfect!

We had the most wonderful stay here. A beautiful villa in a wonderful location. It was perfect, but the best bits were the lovely garden/pool area, and the first floor dining terrace with sea views. Thank you.
