“Villa Emilie should be listed under the title “Deluxe Cretan Villa”.”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Villa Emilie should be listed under the title “Deluxe Cretan Villa” as it feels more like a Boutique Hotel.
I stayed at Villa Emilie in Summer 2013 with my wife and two Children and we loved the place, I would recommend you go. Due to Flight delays we arrived in Crete slightly late, picked up a hire car (Holiday Autos, Very Good) and travelled to Villa Emilie. The Sun was just setting as we drove though Olive Groves that surround Villa Emilie and we were all feeling very tired from our Journey. As we pulled up outside Villa Emilie the Owner and his Wife were waiting to greet us.. The Electric Garage Doors of the secure indoor parking swung open and we drove in. The Owner helped us with our bags while his wife turned on the Satellite TV and began to show us around. The property is very well furnished and has a “Homely Feel” un like a normal rental property. The lounge area is really spacious and Air Conditioned with two seating areas and a dinning table. There is a Shower and toilet off the lounge. The Lounge is the best place to get the WIFI (which is Fast). The well-appointed kitchen adjoins the lounge and has another table in it. There are plenty of plates, pan, cups, glasses, corkscrew, everything you need to self cater. There is a Dishwasher too. Just outside the Kitchen onto the balcony is a further Dinning area with views over the Pool and the surrounding Olive Groves. Moving along into the “Bar-B-Q Area” which is shaded by a pagoda is a very comfortable seating area with a Sofa, two Arm Chairs and a Lounger, which encircle a coffee table. We spent many a night sitting here talking and watching movies under the stars. There are lanterns and candles to enhance the experience. You can also get the WIFI here so my teenagers could check their Facebook. The actual Bar-B-Q in a proper brick built one with all the cooking tools you will need. Local Cats will wander through to say hello. There are a few (2 or 3) gentle steps down from the Bar-B-Q area into the Grassed Gardens and Pool area. At the top of those few steps is a ‘Child Gate” to protect very young children. The Pool is large and there are Sun Loungers and Umbrella’s at either end. There is an Outdoor shower by the pool with Hot and Cold water. The Gardens, Bar-B-Q area, Terraces, and Balconies are all lit with feature lighting and look amazing at night. The grass is cut short and is kept in perfect condition by the owner. Due to it’s slightly elevated position you have fantastic views over Olive Groves and surrounding area right down to the Sea and benefit from a gentle breeze to help keep you cool during the day.
Upstairs are 3 Double bedrooms which all access Balconies. Each of the Bedrooms has Air Conditioning, which works really well, but I preferred to leave the French windows open and enjoy the cool breeze. We stayed 7 nights and were given new bedding mid week. All the windows have mosquito nets but we did not see any mosquitos. In the Master Bedroom is a SAFE where you can keep you valuables but I must add Villa Emilie feels very safe, the owner was born in this area and knows everyone. Off the Master Bedroom is a Very large Balcony with…Yes, another table, chairs and umbrella. We were lucky when we were there as a meteor shower passed the Earth so we sat up here and watched the “Shooting Stars”, we counted 16 one night! Also on the first floor is a Bathroom/Shower Room and Toilet with a Washing Machine. If I went again I would take far less clothes as you can wash them as you go and this would save you money on Easy Jet and Ryan air who charge per bag!
We were tired after our Journey so I asked where the nearest restaurant was and there are a few nearby but we had no need to go as the owners Wife had cooked us Two Moussaka's (One Meat, One Veggie) which were in the oven waiting and they had stocked our fridge and cupboards too with Wine, Beer, Cheese, Butter, Milk, Water, Juice, Bread, Tea, Coffee everything we needed for our first night so we just showered and eat Moussaka and Salad under the stars…. Prefect!
The Owner and his Wife are lovely, lovely people. Villa Emilie is a little more expensive than some others but you get SO MUCH MORE so I feel it was cheaper in the long run. Villa Emilie represents excellent Value for Money. If you stay at Villa Emilie you will need a Car. There are Supermarkets nearby and the beach a 5 minute drive away. What more can I say…I would go again.

“Great hospitality & Great location.”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We were greeted with a well stocked fridge & a fresh homemade moussaka & pistache (pasta dish for the children). A few days later an apple upside down cake arrived and then after that some stuffed peppers & tomatoes. All gorgeous!! The hospitality was amazing. They were keen to ensure we enjoyed our holiday.
The house had everything we needed for cooking on the BBQ each eve. Great tavernas nearby. Lots of inflatables & toys for our 3 daughters. Immaculate pool & gardens. Lots of areas to catch the first and last of those rays.
Perfect location with an easy to walk to local Greek shops. A 5 minute drive to a perfect sandy beach with warm calm sea & more tavernas etc. We especially enjoyed 'River taverna' for lunch whilst spending the day on the beach as this was away from a lot of the others and did great seafood. Soooo many great villages & tavernas to visit. LOVED IT!!

“Outstanding value”
Reviewed 4 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I only write reviews when they are warranted. If I have a bad experience I don't write a review because I don't want to ruin someone's income. When a place is this great,I want to share with everyone.I can say that tis is the best value I have ever had in my life for a vacation stay. The owners are the best people . when we arrived Kate had made us a Greek lasagne that you can't get in the best restaurants. The refrigerator had a full days worth of items so we never made it to the supermarket. The grounds,pool,and grounds were spectacular.The views are amazing,of the sea and mountains.Olive and wine groves all around you. We have paid much more in other areas and never experienced anything like this. A car is a must!!
