Together with my 2 children and with a friend, we stayed in Vilana. We read all the positive reviews, but it even exceded expectations. Even before we checked in our host held regular contact through whatsapp to help us get to the accomodation and give us tips and guidance.
At arrival we found a warm welcome with a freshly baked cake from our own oven. The herb garden that was available for our convenience was a very nice touch. What was also very nice was that they already had put some flotation devices in the pool, very nice for the kids.
We really loved the property, beds and service of the host and would really love to return to this place soon!
Some to try to find some flaws: there were no garbage bins in the rooms. Also, it was only possible to use the bath in the master bedroom, not to shower there ( not too inconvenient because there we two other bathrooms in the property)
We were 3 couples and 2 low ages children in the house, feel very comfortable and with enough space. Clean, quiet et well equiped house (just need to add a microwave for children food)
We stay a week and we fully recommend this house.
Evina is a really good host and took care of us!
We have spend a wonderful stay in the Evina & Fragkiskos villa.
We were in family : 6 people for 3 weeks
They are so kind and welcoming :)
The garden with the fresh vegetables everyday is fantastic.
We also receive some fresh and delicious eggs to cooked.
The villa is really convenient and everything is « de bon goût « !
The location is also perfect to visit the island.
Thank you so much to this kind family.
Our son is fan for their baby girl !
If you looking for a nice place with nice people : come !
We love Skouloufia taverna also !!
Entering to fall, our decision to choose this beautiful villa in Rethymno rural area, was pretty smart. The premises were better than the photos depicted, super clean, and as luxury as needed. All furniture are new, the garden is a bless for the soul and the pool eased further our stay. In this small but cozy town, we had the chance to discover unexpected beauties, eat real Cretan food and enjoy the most the warm weather, even for early October. The hospitality we received was one of a kind, I hope we’ll meet again such eager and smiley owners.
We will come back for sure.
PS: thanks for the homemade wine and olive oil!
We (a group of five friends) stayed for a week from 13/09/2017 until 20/09/2017. The villa is modern with a high quality finish. It is first class.
The nearest supermarket is 15 mins by car and there is a taverna 15-20 mins walk from the villa. You will need to hire a car if you stay here. The gardens are watered and the BBQ is cleaned daily (which means you can grill all holiday long!).
Evina was a wonderful host and was more than happy to suggest day trips and make arrangements for us to hire a boat for the day - she was incredibly helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending this villa.
