SO RELAXING

  • 4 of 5
This was a second visit to this area but the first time we have stayed in this Villa, we would recommend it to anyone that likes to get away from the husstle and bustle, the villa is well equipped and geared for outdoor eating with a lovely webber barbecue. The rooms are spacious and the balcony upstairs is super and we enjoyed having a late night drink and watching the sunset. The pool is a very good size and you can always have the use of the other pools which are all highly maintained.

A washing machine would have been ideal and some outdoor plastic plates for the kids would have been good in case of any accidents. The owner was very good with his communication and got back to us straight away. We also ate at Valentinos restaurant which was always busy and great food and service.

Owner's Response: We have looked at the possibility of installing a washing machine, but the location of it would be a problem. The only real place would be in the kitchen/living area, and we don't feel that this would be quite right. There is a very friendly and accommodating laundry in Georgopoulis who offer a very quick and efficient service at a very reasonabl price.

The idea of plastic plates for use outside is a very good idea and we will be equipping the villa with these for the coming season.

Villa Equus - Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Villa Equus for a week in August this year. Everything about the property was as expected. It was clean, well maintained and although we didn't need to use it help was at hand for any problems that may has arisen. The kitchen was adequately stocked for home cooking which was a dream on the webber bbq. The outdoor furniture was very comfortable, especially on the upstairs terrace where is was so easy to go and get a nice 40 winks!

What stands this villa out from the rest i think is the lovely garden. Not only is it very pleasant to look at, it provides privacy. Having said that whilst we were there only one of the 5 other properties in this block was occupied so it wasn't an issue anyway. The pool is fantastic and maintained to an exceptionally high standard. I couldn't get my kids out of it and such a bonus that you can sit in the garden or on the patio and be able to see what they're up to. The upstairs bedroom provided fantastic sunset views over the mountains every day - a very important factor for my husband who loves to have a view wherever we go.

The local area provides many opportunities for eating, shopping, sightseeing, etc and the local beach which stretches for miles and miles is brilliant. I can't imagine this beach every feeling crowded and parking is very easy. One of the beachside taverna's (which is recommended in the property information file) caters well for children in that it has a grassed play area with a trampoline, a mini swimming pool, swings etc which are all free of charge.

Local Kournas lake is well worth a visit as is Kournas village, especially the ceramics shop for your souvenirs and eating at the roadside Kali Kardia Taverna. I had the best meal of my holiday here and having the smoked pork as recommended in the Lonely Planet book didn't dissapoint! I would also recommend visits to Chania, Rethymnon and the local village of Argroupoli (upper and lower villages) with it's freshwater springs. Our other favourite place to eat was Valentino's in Georgioupolis. They were always busy, great food every time and they catered well for children.

I would consider having a car essential for a stay at Villa Equus.

The only way this property could have been better in my opinion is if it had a washing machine. Having said that though the other benefits outway this and when i stay again (and i will!) and will use the launderette in Georgioupolis.

This was my first visit to Crete and i loved it!

Lovely Villa

  • 4 of 5
A really nice small villa in a quiet location. It has very good facilities, clean and well maintained. Well placed for local sightseeing and visiting the nearby beaches, or enjoying the sun in the garden or around the pool.
Would recommend for couples or friends wanting to explore Western Crete.

Villa Equus is situated in a lovely quiet area just 3 minutes from the beach. The White Mountains provide a spectacular backdrop and just 4kms away is Lake Kournas.The area is non-commercial and ideal for a relaxed romantic holiday.

Nearby is the Venetian town of Rethymnon with its ancient fortress. The old part of Rethymnon is simply beautiful, with its lovely harbour and market type atmosphere.
