Guestbook comments from the owner

September 2013 werden wir zum 3. Mal in dieser Villa unseren Urlaub verbringen.

Wir lieben Kreta sehr und die Eigentümer dieses Hauses geben uns schon bei der Ankunft

immer wieder das Gefühl willkommen zu sein.

Obst,Brot,Käse und vieles andere mehr sowie Raki und Olivenöl aus eigener Herstellung

stehen bereit,vor allem wenn man spät anreist weiß man diesen Service sehr zu schätzen.

Nicht zu vergessen die wunderbare Moussaka hausgemacht von Frau Sofoulakis , ein

Genuss.

Das Haus ist wirklich fantastisch und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet , vor allem aber, hat

es eine ruhige traumhafte Einzellage.

Ein Mietwagen ist Voraussetzung um in die Stadt oder zu einem der herrlichen Strände zu

gelangen.Es gibt sehr viele wirklich schöne Ziele in der näheren Umgebung,nimmt man

sich mehr Zeit kann man natürlich auch die entlegensten Ortschaften erkunden.Wir waren

schon bis nach Ierapetra, der südlichsten Stadt Europas.

Bei der Rückkehr lädt der wunderbare Pool zum Erfrischen ein.

Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet was benötigt wird und darüber hinaus.

Alles ist sehr sauber und die Eigentümer kommen zwei Mal in der Woche um alles zu

reinigen und frische Bettwäsche aufzuziehen und Handtücher zu wechseln.

Die Reinigung wird vorher angekündigt , so dass man nicht unbedingt im Haus sein muß.

Die Diskretion wissen wir zu schätzen.

Die Villa hat eine tolle Dachterasse,von der man einen weiten Blick bis zum Meer hat,oder

man genießt herrliche Sonnenuntergänge bei einer Flasche griechischem Wein.

Unten im Haus befindet sich ein kleines ,von der Eigentümerfamilie liebevoll eingerichtetes

Museum,hier bekommt man einen interessanten Einblick in die Vergangenheit .

Wer vom vielen guten griechischen Essen und dem Faulenzen am Pool das Bedürfnis hat

sich ein paar Pfunde abzutrainieren , oder einfach nur Freude an sportlicher Betätigung

hat geht in den Fitnessraum und hat dazu Gelegenheit . Macht echt Spaß und dann ab in

den Pool.

Ein wirklich wunderbares Haus mit einer sehr herzlichen Eigentümerfamilie .

Wir freuen uns im September wieder ihre Gäste zu sein.

Our home in Crete !

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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....!!!

Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zum 2.Mal in der Villa Artemis. Die Lage mitten im Olivenhain ist bezaubernd,ebenso der Ausblick auf die Bucht. Aber dies ist nichts wenn man die Gastfreundschaft von Familie Sofoulaki geniessen darf. Im Haus waren alle Dinge des täglichen Lebens, wir mussten erst am 3.Tag einkaufen - was aber besonders zählt ist die Liebenswürdigkeit aller Familienmitglieder; jeder Wunsch ist schon erfüllt, noch bevor er ausgesprochen wurde.

Villa Artemis, an outstanding accomodation

  • 5 of 5

The villa was every bit as attractive as described on the website. The setting is idyllic, the pool and grounds well maintained and the villa itself beautifully appointed.

Prines has the excellent Mikaelis taverna and nearby Atsipopolou has the bakery and good supermarkets. Rethymnon, with a wide choice of beaches, restaurants and nightlife is only 15 minutes drive. The welcome and hospitality from Stella and her family was quite outstanding and we would recommend Villa Artemis 100%

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.
