We had two great weeks in this wonderful villa. The house is fully equipped and nice furnished. The pool was cleaned everyday and the house every third day. We enjoyed it very much and really felt at home. The owner Mr Lefteris Dagarakis was very helpful to find amazing spots like restaurants and beaches in Rethymno and the surroundings. We really like to recommend Villa Harmony. Thanks again for this unforgettable holiday, Lefteris!
This well presented villa is modern, spacious, clean, spacious and stocked with the everything you need for a family or group holiday, including free wi-fi that handled the demands of 3 teenagers. The location is perfect for visiting the beaches on both sides of the island and for visiting key locations via an easy self drive road network. Plenty to do, we enjoyed visits to WaterCity Waterpark; beautiful Palm Beach at Preveli and surrounding beaches; hire of a speedboat from BlueWater nr Heraklion; lounging in luxury at Baja Beach Bar; shopping in Rethymno old town; and some great restaurants - with some much appreciated guidance from Leftkaris! Over and above that, the welcome (with supplies to get you started); the attentiveness (with us within 10 minutes when we managed to lock ourselves out); and the service (with regular cleaning and linen and pool service included) - and the friendliness along the way to ensure we were enjoying our stay. Would wholeheartedly recommend, we had a wonderful holiday.
Stunning Villa , well equipped .
Lefteris [the owner] could not do enough to help us such a kind person.
Nestled in the small village of Adele , was a beautiful rural setting .
Car hire is not essential as taxi hire was on hand and cheap to nearby Adelianos Kampos ,Platanias and Rethymno .
We only stayed one week but would have stayed a lot longer if we could have.
Although we were only there for a week the cleaner came twice and change the bed linen , towels and thoroughly cleaned all the house.
We would highly recommend a holiday here and would definitely return!!
The Villa is pretty much as described by other reviewers so I have not much to add.
The outsized space around the pool is a little cramped. The sprinklers for the grass either had a leak or where switched on too long meaning that it could get quite muddy.
We agreed to have the cleaners in early on our final day as the next visitors where arriving that afternoon. Big mistake, they made us feel very awkward and were quite aggressive, although we left almost at the appointed time, it felt like we had just been kicked out. A very disappointing end to a fantastic stay in a beautiful villa.
We spent 2,5 months in this villa during a sabbatical holiday.
We were very happy with our choice of accomodation as the villa is very comfortable.
The house is very modern (this is the second summer in operation). The appliances, furniture and especially the beds are of high quality.
Every morning (before we woke up) the pool-guy cleaned the pool and garden. Also every few days the cleaning staff visited the house and they did their job very well.
The house is located in the beginning of Adele. Just around the corner there is a supermarket (Manos) who has (amongst others) fresh bread and oranges every morning.
About 10 minutes away is everything else worth visiting in the area like the old harbour of Rethymno (park at the Marina).
A bit farther away (15-20 mins) is Panormo and Bali. Bali is very popular with young children as it is a secluded bay with shallow sandy waters.
Surroundings of the villa are quiet. Garden is private. Staff is very friendly and accesable in case of a problem.
Definitely a good choice if you are visiting the Rethymno area.
