Vacances magnifiques à la villa Hara
Nous avions choisi cette villa avec des amis pour sa proximité de Rethymno et les différents coins ombragés de la terrasse et du jardin. Nous avons été enchantés par la villa et le studio très bien équipés, par la beauté du jardin, de la vue et la terrasse agréable à toutes heures de la journée et de la nuit. Yannis le propriétaire et Xrisa sont adorables, attentifs et très généreux, ils nous ont fait découvrir hors de sentiers touristiques, des plages et endroits de la Crète magnifiques ainsi que les meilleurs tavernes et restaurants. C'était notre troisième séjour en Crète et le plus merveilleux !
Absolutely best Cretan vacation
The house is very tastefully decorated and very spacious. The surroundings are beautiful and it's very calm - the best place to relax and yet so close to Rethymno. And the view is to die for! We absolutely loved the roof top terrace next to the pool - nothing better to sit under the canopy with a nice drink and watch the sun set. But the best is Yannis, the owner, who went out of his way to make this trip memorable. He would even act as our guide to show us things that we would never have seen other wise. We have been almost all over Crete, but this place is something very special and we can highly recommend Hara Villa!
Ideal summer cottage for individual travelling
As seen in the pictures the Villa Hara is situated quiet in beautiful countryside in a small village not far from Rethymnon.
The view from the terrace is magnificent, the pool clean and well maintained. The towels and sheets are changed twice a week and the house cleaned - what a service! The house is furnished individually and lovingly with pictures of Greek artists and a touch of nostalgia. Meanwhile in the kitchen there is standing a dining table (other than in the pictures).
There are good shopping facilities in the village of Pigi only about one kilometer away (food store, butcher, bakery, nice little tavern).
Car hire is essential. The location is ideal for activities between Chania, Heraklion and the south of the island. Jannis, the helpful and friendly owner can give you good tips. And should- against expectation - there would be any problems a regional manager is available (we didn't have WLAN the first days).
We felt very comfortable and would have stayed longer in this beautiful island.
Wonderful family holiday
Villa Hara was an amazing place for our extended family (7 + 1) vacation. We spent 8 days there and wished for more.
The property is located on a hill (near the town of Agia Triada) with a spectacular view of the sea. The larger town of Rethymno is 10 km away.
The villa is decorated inside and outside with much attention to detail. It is spacious with four bedrooms downstairs and another bedroom in an apartment upstairs, next to the pool. All room have air conditioned. Downstairs is a large sitting room next to the dining table and the kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped while the apartment upstairs has a small kitchenette (sink, small fridge & stove.) Next to the pool there is a larger deck with a wonderful view of the sea and of the surrounding hills. We spent a couple of nights there watching the shooting stars. The driveway has enough space to easily fit three cars.
The owner lives next door and was very friendly and helpful, making us feel welcome. He showed us around, gave us advice on restaurants and beaches to visit. He went out of way to bring fresh eggs and pastries for our little boy.
Overall we had a wonderful vacation and staying at Villa Hara had a lot to do with that. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and will definitely stay in the villa again should we come back to Crete.
Review of Villa Hara Crete
Description on web site accurate regarding location, layout and facilities - although wi-fi was not available during our stay (due to an internet problem in the area). The property was very clean and well presented / maintained. The pool is approx 4 x 5m and 1.4m deep.
The owner met us at the villa and was very helpful. He even took us on a guided tour of the local area which was very much appreciated.
I woud certainly recommend this property for those interested in a quiet relaxing holiday. Those interested in a walking holiday would certainly benefit from this villa as a base. However, a car is essential as the nearest shops are approx 3km away and Rethynmon - with it's restaurants, shops and bars is 9km away.
We had a lovely time and would like to return.
Beautiful and spacious private Villa hillsides above Rethymnon.
Very nice and very well maintained Villa in the hills a few kilometers above Rethymnon. Beautiful private property in a flourishing garden setting providing lots of space for 8 people still providing individual privacy. Certainly a highlight is the very wide roof top terrace with its magnificent view across the shoreline and the mountains. The private pool is large enough for an easy refreshment. The house is fully equipped with everything a family needs for the daily life and even the fridge is equipped with the first need to haves upon your arrival. The entire arrangement lets you feel like coming home and is far away from typical apartment or hotel operation. In the proximity you will find typical greek tavernes and shopping facilities (i.e. organic food in highest quality) hence you should have car available during your stay.
The location is perfect for all excursions across West Crete, many attractions, beaches even on the south coast are within easy range. The host which life nearby are very kind an sophisticated people which really give you good advice and ideas for your daily activities. We have been out with them 2 or 3 times and it was always a pleasure to get a deeper insight into the local lifestyle of west Crete and the Rethymnon area. We definitely came as foreigners and left as friends.
Villa Hara is located on a hill next to “Agia Triada” village, a small village with quietness and ideal for relaxing, but also close to everything that you might need! In the village of Agia Triada you will only find a small traditional tavern that you will love! Moreover the bigger villages “Pigi” and “Adele” where you can find all kind of shops, supermarkets, bakeries and several taverns are only 3 km away! About 6 km away from the villa you will also find the well known tourist area of “Platanias” with many organised beaches, night clubs, big market and restaurants! The closest beach to the villa is the long sandy beach of Rethymno which starts from the city of Rethymno (10 minutes drive away) and ends in the area of Skaleta. The spot of the beach that is closer to the villa is in the area of “Adelianos Kampos” or “Platanias” which is 5 - 6 km away. The beach is quite long and gives you the opportunity to find totally quiet spots or fully organised and crowded areas just a couple of minutes away each other! Generally the location of the villa has many advantages and it is ideal for almost all the kind of vacations. You can stay close to the villa and enjoy the calmness of the area, the panoramic views and one of the best beaches in Crete or you can take advantage of the villa’s central location and explore our amazing island! PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
