Great stay. Fantastic accommodation andhospitality
Stella and family were so welcoming and generous. We ate the best moussaka on our first evening and enjoyed the produce they provided. The villa was perfectly private and surrounded by olive trees. The pool, cleaned every day by brother George, was such a joy for the children and adults alike. The various spaces in the villa provided what we needed as a group with three children and three adults. The villa was clean and well equipt for cooking. The family also cleaned the villa midweeek - changing towels and making it spotless again. The local tavernas were fantastic as was the entire island. We loved having a BBQ at the villa and chilling out there and also having a few days out exploring places near and far. Crete is a fantastic and stunning island. Stella's family villa was a perfect base. We all agreed that it was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays. Thank you also to Stella and her family for helping us sort out a bag which we accidentally left at the villa on our last day. We were so grateful for your help. We would definitely recommend and hope to come back in the future.
Many thanks xx

We had a truly relaxing peaceful stay in the villa. Beautiful tranquil surroundings yet within 20 mins walk of the local village and tavernas. We would recommend this villa to anyone and the hospitality of Stella and her family make you feel very welcome.
Another great holiday!
Our second time at this property, and another wonderful holiday. The villa is immaculate and the generosity and friendliness of Stella and her family is outstanding. we loved every minute and will be back again!
Our home in Crete !
We have just come back from 3 weeks at the villa and as its our 4th holiday there we now feel like it's home from home.The facilities are first class,the views are spectacular and the location is a perfect fit for those in the family who want peace and quiet and those who enjoy the nightlife in nearby Rethymnon.
However the real difference in booking this villa from many others we have been to is the detail and care the owners put into making you feel welcome and that you have everything you could need. On our last holiday they even invited us to a wedding - a real Mamma Mia moment !
A really wonderful place to stay !
A very special place
We arrived in the middle of the night and a day early.....but Stella and her parents could not have been more helpful despite our mistake, they found us a hotel at 3 in the morning and even offered to halve the costs! I suppose you could say, and it is, great customer service but it so, so much more and indicative of just how well you will be looked after if you stay here. The villa itself is faultless in terms of facilities, layout, cleanliness, view, location...everything! This is a very very special place and we hope to return next year. Thank you Stella and your family, we could not have asked for more. I would happily recommend Villa Artemis to anyone especially the moussaka....!!!
Very Nice villa . With a nicely wellcome from Stella. Nô noise . Pretty swimingpool, garden with BBQ Ping pong table . For children it was the paradise . They lovéd the sport room also. . 10mn driving from rethimon . Supermarket at 5 mn. A car is obligatory. I strongly recommend
The region of Rethymno in Crete offers some of the most interesting and beautiful landscapes in Greece. Our villa Artemis is located in Prines, a picturesque village close to Rethymno. An area of outstanding natural beauty, the countryside lends itself to fascinating walks and mountain biking. The traditional village of Prines is just a few minutes stroll from our villa to find a local tavern and a mini-market. There are also local shops, bakery, butcher, cafes and chemist close to our villa. Within a 10 minute drive from Prines there are sandy beaches which offer good facilities. Situated in the middle of Crete, our villa provides an ideal base to explore Crete. Some interesting sights close to Rethymno are the monasteries of Arkadi and Preveli, Plakias, Lake Kournas, the natural springs of Argiroupolis, Episkopi and Georgioupolis beaches for beach lovers.
