Excellent holiday in Villa Faskomilia

  • 5 of 5
We had in Augst 2014 an excellent stay in Villa Faskomilia during 12 days (Harkia Villas).
The combination of
- the surrounding hills and valleys and the sea view
- the peace and quiet
- the well equipped accommodation
- the hospitality & discreet care of the owner

We want to thank the owner, who is a lovely person who comes each two days for maintenance and cleaning. We arrived after midnight and she waited for us at a meeting point to show us the way in the dark. When we arrived their was a hot dish, wine, raki, greek salad...! On request she prepares excellent local dishes and cakes, as she is an outstanding cook.

The accommodation is about 10 km away from the beach but this no problem at all. The road is ok and Harkia is a good base for visits to Heraklion, Chania, Rethymnon...

The villa has several terraces where you can sit depending the hour of the day. The swimming pool is large and refreshing.

You should also visit by feet the restaurant The View (500 m further towards Harkia). The owners are most charming and lovely people. On request one day one beforehand they prepare very tasteful local dishes. There is a large terrace with the same breathtaking view. We had several dinners over there and had a real good time.

This was a great experience we can recommend to everyone, with a huge value for money. I can really not find even a minor negative point, besides that our stay was too short ...

Owner's Response: Geert and his family are perfect renters. We were paid on time and the villa was very clean during their stay. But, most importantly, they are very nice persons! They created no problems, they are polite, and we will be very happy to see them again on Crete and in Harkia Villas. Of course, I highly recommend Geert and his family to all homeowners!

Four lovely weeks in June 2014

  • 5 of 5
I have just come back to Sweden after one month’s stay in Villa Faskomilia. And what a month!
I had seen all the nice photos on the Internet before I arrived, but to see this property in real-life was something else.
As soon as I entered the villa I felt that this was a special house. So are the surroundings.
The villa is clean, well-equipped and very nice and comfortable. The pool is nice and clean and there is a good place for barbecue. And you cannot have better hosts!
The mother and daughter Vasilaki are so kind and their hospitality is great. Mrs V is an excellent cook and every now and then they brought different delicious dishes to the villa. One of the last evenings we were asked to order whatever we wanted and it ended up with lamb steak, cheese pies, Greek salad, Tzatsiki, wine and an extra ordinary cake (which we had tasted before and just loved). Delicious! This meal was a gift from the family. Thank you so much again!
One morning I sat on one of the terraces having breakfast. From a distance I heard a man sing beautifully. It was the priest from the village. At the same time I heard the goats bleat and their little bells ring. Above my head a pair of eagles circulated. I can tell you this was amazing!
There is a nice taverna, The View, just 10 minutes from the villa. We had several meals there during our stay and we always got excellent traditional Greek food. The couple who owns the restaurant are very nice people too.
I would love to come back next year!

Owner's Response: Eva is a great person! The same applies to her family members and friends! They spent 4 weeks in our villa without causing any problem, they were very polite, and took well care of the villa. In practice, I really suggest Eva to all home-owners. You will not find better renters than Eva for your properties. We really miss Eva since she left to return to her home-country. Hope to see you again in Crete!

Wonderful Hospitality in a Gorgeous Location

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent a blissful week at Villa Faskomilia, and we would gladly return. The owners could not have been more welcoming and attentive. Not only did they lead us up the dark approach road upon our late-night arrival to ensure we reached the villa, they also provided a delicious and much-appreciated dinner of pork, potatoes, salad, cheese pies, Cretan cheese and bread - along with wine and olive oil of their own estate. We wanted for nothing at the villa and the housekeeping was excellent. We awakened to the sound of birds and the distant tinkling of goat bells, and relished the utter peace and lovely view over the hills to the sea from the terrace, upper balcony and poolside. The 25-minute drive to Rethymnon is well worth the privacy, beauty and tranquility of the villa's location. The smaller village of Adele is about 15 minutes' drive for grocery and bakery. Were the weather warmer during our visit, we may not have even left the villa because the terrace and pool are absolutely marvelous. The location allowed for easy day trips to see Knossos and Heraklion, Rethymnon and the beach, and Frangokastello on the south coast. While the two villas are connected by driveway, they are situated to provide great privacy. We would hardly have known other guests were occupying the other villa during our stay. We highly recommend Villa Faskomilia - as well as its sister property. The owners are wonderful hosts and we now have an immense appreciation for homecooked Cretan cuisine. We look forward to returning some day and seeing all the things we didn't make time to see on this first visit to Crete.

Our stay at Villa Faskomilia was beyond our expectation, this was our second time to Creta, and we could not have selected a better place.
The mountain and see view is magnificent. Even in August we always had a pleasing temperature due to the high altitude. We enjoyed the warm welcome by the Vasilakis family, which was an indication of their hospitality during our entire holiday. Mrs Vasilakis prepared several dinners: Moussaka, Beef Stifado, Pastitsio, Dolmadakia, cake, … and offered us their own produced wine, olive oil and raki. We never experienced this kind of hospitality in other rental houses.
The accommodation was perfect. Mrs Vasilakis changed towels and sheets every 2 days.
Our children (8y and 11y) loved the large swimming pool.
We highly recommend this property to other guests.

Fabulous quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5
After a relatively easy drive from Chania Airport we arrived at the villa set in the hills. We were greeted by the owner & her daughter who not only had filled the fridge with groceries but had provided us with their own produced wine, olive oil & raki, plus a wonderful moussaka & chocolate cake!

During our 2 weeks we received wonderful surprises of home baked cakes, eggs, pork chops & on our last evening a full evening meal!

The villa is ideal for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle & bustle but only approx. 7mins drive from the nearest small beach resort, with ATM, tavernas and even a Lidl supermaket for all your grocery requirements.

We took numerous trips out to Chania Town, Rethmynon both for shopping and then explored other beaches across that side of the island.

We took our Sat Nav which proved invaluable in finding our way around.

We would thoroughly recommend the villa Thimari which is equipped with everything you could possibly need including pool towels. Changes of bedding & towels very frequent & the villa was cleaned at least 4 times whilst we were there. We will definitely return!

Fine villa

  • 5 of 5
The villa Faskomilia (the other one seems to be identical, although the swimming pools are different shapes) is very well equipped and has spacious accomodation, with a good pool and barbecue. The cleaning was done every 3 days, with replacement sheets and towels each time, and couldn't be faulted. The owners were very kind and left us a pork stew on our first night with another excellent dish left later during our 2 week stay. The taverna is quite close enough for the reasonably able-bodied to walk there in about 5-10 minutes and was worth the effort. We were served starters, main courses with wine, desserts and raki for E50 for 4 adults and it was good fare. One night, the lady who speaks English wasn't there, but the 2 men who were in charge simply gave us a mobile phone connected to the lady, who was in Rhethymnon. We told her what we wanted and she then told the men who proceeded to cook our meals - impressive!

The villa is a bit remote, being about 12 minutes up a windy road from Platanias, but it was well worth it for the villa and the lovely countryside.
