Stunning views from a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5
We would highly recommend this villa if you are looking for tranquility just a short drive from a bustling town by the sea.

Set in the most beautiful countryside with views over the hills to the sea beyond, the villa was beautifully furnished and very clean, inside and out.

We arrived to find a delicious Cretan meal waiting for us as well as wine and olive oil produced by the kind owners! The owners were very welcoming and were on hand to answer any questions we might have had.

The village of Charkia is very pretty and just a short stroll from the Villa - the proprietor of the Taverna (The View) couldn't have been more welcoming and made us the most delicious Greek salad we've ever had.

All in all, a wonderful place to stay.

idyllic dream-destination

  • 5 of 5
We (two adults with three little children) had the lucky opportunity to live for four weeks in villa Thimari during May/June 2010. The villa is very good separated from the other one, so that the privacy is kept very well. Around the villa is nothing than pure nature with a fantastic and absolutely unspoiled panoramic view from the valley to the sea. There is an idyllic silence, the singing of the cicadas und the ringing of the goat’s bells complete the perfect Crete-experience.
The villas are very well equipped and lovely furnished and decorated, there was nothing we were missing. We enjoyed especially the fantastic care of the owner and her parents. During many years of traveling to Greece we have never met such a hospitality and such good service (including culinarily highlights!).
Renting a car is obligatory for the whole time: You need by car about 15 minutes to the next big supermarket, the trip to Rethmynon takes about half an hour. You can walk to the little village of Harkia, there are two taverns nearby (we mainly cooked in the villa for ourselves).
Résumé: The villas are absolutely recommendable! Only people in search for noise and trouble shall search elsewhere for an accommodation.

"Located in an impressive setting atop a ravine yet only 15 minutes from the sea, this brand new villa offers the best of the tranquility of the mountains as well as the vicinity to most of the interesting sites in Crete.
What truly grabbed us was the warm welcome and hospitality of the owners, which made us feel right at home.
An exceptional place in every way. We loved it!"

Idyllisches Traumziel

  • 5 of 5
Wir (zwei Erwachsene mit drei kleinen Kindern) hatten das Glück, im Mai/Juni 2010 für ganze vier Wochen in der Villa Thimari zu wohnen. Sie ist räumlich gut von der zweiten Villa getrennt, so dass jeder seine Privatsphäre behält. Um die Villen herum gibt es nichts außer Natur pur und einem fantastischen und völlig unverbauten Panoramablick ins Tal bis zum Meer. Es herrscht idyllische Ruhe, das Singen der Zikaden und das Klingeln der Ziegenglocken machen das Kreta-Erlebnis perfekt.
Die Häuser sind sehr gut ausgestattet und liebevoll eingerichtet, uns hat es an nichts gefehlt. Insbesondere die fantastische Betreuung durch die Vermieterin und deren Eltern hat uns gefallen: Einen so gastfreundlichen und fürsorglichen Service (inklusive kulinarischer Köstlichkeiten!) haben wir in vielen Jahren Griechenland-Urlaub nicht erlebt.
Ein Mietwagen für die komplette Urlaubszeit ist absolute Pflicht: Hiermit braucht man ca. 15 Minuten bis zum nächsten größeren Supermarkt, nach Rethymnon dauert es ca. eine halbe Stunde. Zu Fuss kann man in das Dörfchen Harkia gehen, dort gibt es bei Bedarf zwei Tavernen (wir haben uns hauptsächlich selbst versorgt).
Fazit: Die Villen sind rundherum empfehlenswert! Lediglich derjenige, der unbedingt Lärm und Trubel sucht, sollte sich anderweitig nach einer Unterkunft umschauen.

"Die Harkia Villas sind ein echter Geheimtipp. Die Lage und die Ausstattung sind geradezu perfekt. Alles wunderbar neu, sauber und professionell. Für unsere 2-jährige Tochter wurde eigens ein neues Kinderbett, ein Reisebett, ein Kinderstuhl und Geschirr angeschafft. Die Familie ist rührend besorgt und bietet einen sehr herzlichen und liebevollen Service (Reinigung, Ausstattung, Einladung zum Essen, selbst hergestelltes Olivenöl und Wein, Spielzeuge für Kinder). Die Villas sind in einem Top-Zustand (Haus, Küche, Bad, Pool, TV, AC) und die Lage lässt keine Wünsche offen - direkt in den Bergen und dennoch einen super Blick zum Meer. Die Villa Thimari ist besser für kleine Kinder geeignet (Terassen-Fläche und Pool), die Villa Faskomilia bietet einen noch spektakuläreren Blick ins Tal und zum Meer. Die Villas liegen im Scheitel eines schönen Tals außerhalb des Dorfes Harkia, inmitten von Olivenhainen, Ziegen und Schafen. Ruhe und Exklusivität sind stets gewahrt. Über den Tag verteilt fahren vielleicht 5-8 Autos die Straße entlang und sorgen fast schon für eine willkommende Abwechselung... Argiri, Vaso und Nikos sind perfekte Gastgeber und helfen bei Fragen unkompliziert und sehr freundlich weiter. Die Harkia Villas sind uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen und bieten mehr, als ein perfekter Urlaub auf Kreta braucht:-)))"
