FANTASTIC HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
I just want to tell you that we now are back in Denmark after a fantastic week in Fodele. We have been very satisfied with both the house, the surroundings, the village and the friendlyness of the people. It was an ideal place for a family with children.We will definitily recommend it to other and maybe we will come back another year. Sune 2009


We had a fantastic holiday! The house was lovely and clean when we arrived. The house had everything we needed, and more, and was an ideal starting point for sightseeing-which we did quite a bit of, as well as beach/pool. The village was great, after a week all the locals knew us, and we felt very welcome in the local supermarkets, shops, and by the roadside sellers, where we sampled a lot of the local goods (Raki hangover and flying back with two toddlers-not good!). We particularly liked that everyone was so childfriendly, that, particularly in the evenings, it was not very touristy, and the beautiful surroundings. Claudia 2009

Villa Emathia was brilliant, thank you. Whilst we were a little concerned at the lack of transport in Fodele when we first arrived, we soon found that we did not need or want to go out of the village. It was like being in a bubble away from the stresses and strains of the outside world. The village soon adopted us and we became very friendly with the locals. We were invited to our first Greek wedding - they certainly know how to celebrate. We have all gained a little weight from the numerous puddings on offer at the Platinos Bar – whether we asked for them or not – and enjoyed every minute of the glorious weather. Julie August

The Village of Fodele is a real gem and is truly unique with its lush greens and cool nights! Everything about this holiday was almost perfect. Maria July.

we had a fantastic holiday thank you. I have recommended the villa to lots of family and friends and would definatly return ourselves. Emma July

We had a WONDERFUL time! The views were incredible from our balcony. Dana May

We just returned yesterday from Crete - and wanted to thank you for a very enjoyable stay at Emathia. We found the place very comfortable and pleasant with all you need for a "home-away-from-home". We enjoyed Fodele, the little river (and playground), the bakery and the Tavernas. The car rental you suggested was also very good, and luckily we had very mild and pleasant weather.
We will surely recommend Emathia to our friends, Sigal April

INTIMATE AND QUIET IN A SMALL GREEK VILLAGE

  • 5 of 5
The villa is situated near the center of a small Cretan village, and there is a walking distance to everything you need (e.g. fresh bread every morning from the local bakery). Since it is well hidden behind mandarin trees and walls, you have enough private life. The villa is clean and in an excellent condition, and is well-equipped in the kitchen! On arrival we even found fresh bread, butter, wine and cold table water in the fridge! It has two floors. The ground floor consists of a living room with 2 sofas (easily turned into beds), a dining table with 4 chairs, a small table and a small TV with a DVD-player and a radio/CD-player. The living room is integrated with the kitchen which has a dish washing machine, stove, microwave oven, water boiler and even a toaster! And there are supplies of things you only need tiny amounts of like salt, pepper, cleaning agents etc. The ground floor also has a bathroom w/shower. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom w/shower. One bedroom has a double bed with access to a nice south-facing balcony, and the other one has two single beds. And there is even access to the roof which provide a nice view of the village with surroundings - perfect for a relaxing private time on a sunbed or stargazing at night. Outside the entrance there is a small marble table with 2 chairs, and there is also an exit from the kitchen to a small "backyard" having a small wooden table with 3 chairs (and where the laundry machine is found). Emathia is the end unit of a set of chained house complex having six units and a shared swimming pool with sunbeds. The caretakers, Ken and Helen, live in the same complex and are easily reached if needed. They will also drive and do things for you for a small charge if you don't have a car or know your way around. The villa is excellent if you want to experience greek everyday life in a small and intimate greek village, and the surroundings provide many good opportunities for walks. If beach life is important you should have a car since the best nearby beach is in Agia Pelagia about 8 km away (yes, Fodele beach is only 3 km away but quite windy and uncalm sea..), But if a swimming pool and a sunbed is sufficient then you really don't need a car. It is suitable for families with a small baby since there is a ramp up from the gate (suitable for a trolley) and the parents with the baby have the necessary facilities at the ground floor.
