Really nice house with such friendly people!!
Wir verbrachten eine Woche in diesem wunderschönen Haus mit einem herrlichen Garten. Die Orangen und Zitronen konnte man vom Fenster aus abpflücken! Die Vermieter sind sehr sehr nett, jeden Tag gab es eine kleine köstliche Überraschung aus der super leckeren Küche der Mutter! Die Lage des Hauses in einer ruhigen Gegend in einem
gemütlichen Dorf etwas abseits von den Touristenhochburgen war perfekt und auch unsere Jungs konnten sehr schön in dem herrlichenGarten mit Pool spielen.
We all loved staying at the villa. It was very peaceful and relaxing, set amongst olive trees. Elia and her family were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. They were very generous giving us little treats throughout our 2 week stay, olive oil, cake, grapes, herbs and more. The pool was the perfect place to cool off and sunbathe. The villa had everything we needed and comes highly recommended. We found plenty to do in the area and visited Rethymno several times. We would certainly consider staying again if we returned to the beautiful island.
