“Wonderful family holiday”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Villa Hara was an amazing place for our extended family (7 + 1) vacation. We spent 8 days there and wished for more.

The property is located on a hill (near the town of Agia Triada) with a spectacular view of the sea. The larger town of Rethymno is 10 km away.

The villa is decorated inside and outside with much attention to detail. It is spacious with four bedrooms downstairs and another bedroom in an apartment upstairs, next to the pool. All room have air conditioned. Downstairs is a large sitting room next to the dining table and the kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped while the apartment upstairs has a small kitchenette (sink, small fridge & stove.) Next to the pool there is a larger deck with a wonderful view of the sea and of the surrounding hills. We spent a couple of nights there watching the shooting stars. The driveway has enough space to easily fit three cars.

The owner lives next door and was very friendly and helpful, making us feel welcome. He showed us around, gave us advice on restaurants and beaches to visit. He went out of way to bring fresh eggs and pastries for our little boy.

Overall we had a wonderful vacation and staying at Villa Hara had a lot to do with that. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and will definitely stay in the villa again should we come back to Crete.

“Brilliant villa to base your Crete holiday.”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were a family group of 10 people including teenagers. The villa was big enough for everyone to find there own place to relax. The separate apartment that is next to the pool was great for a couple to get away for some quite time. It was great to have the pool to cool off and enjoy the view especially at sunset. We called on Kostas a couple of times and he helped us with problems that weren't even attached to villa. The owner who lives next door was helpful with what we could do around the local area. It's a good base to get to all areas of the island but you must be prepared to do lots of driving. If you want a more relaxing holiday you can spend all your time at local beachs and tavernas and the old town.
The only negative thing was that you did need a car to get to local beachs supermarket taverna. Make sure you load your map with the coordinates that Kostas gives you on your device before you leave because mobile data did not always work on the island.

The Villa was nice, but due to the layout (2 separate buildings) may not be suitable for families with small kids.
Lovely pool deck with stunning views to the sea and countryside
Car is essential, but restaurants and beaches just a short drive away.
Restaurants relatively cheap for a 'tourist hotspot'
Good holiday, very relaxing, and local people friendly.
