Beautiful villa with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday here with our four children. The villa had everything you could need and we spent lots of time enjoying the villa itself: relaxing by (∈) the pool, watching eagles, eating outside enjoying the stunning views and listening to all the wildlife around. We had hired a car (recommended!) and so we were also able to visit many lovely places in the region such as Knossos, Lake Kournas, Arkadi monastery, Preveli beach and Melidoni cave.

Thank you so much to our host family for their warm welcome and friendly helpfulness, including the delicious food that was there on our arrival and was very much appreciated.

Would recommend this villa to all!

A most wonderful holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

We can only really reiterate what everyone else has said before - the reviews really do speak for themselves and are all absolutely true. This wonderful family gave us the most treasured holiday memories and looked after us so well. The food they serve is so delicious and such a welcome after a tiring journey. The position is truly outstanding - what amazing scenery and a peaceful location - just so inspiring, both our boys aged 9 & 12 had the 'best holiday ever!' The Villas are so well looked after and maintained, the cleaning is extremely appreciated every 2 days. Contact is possible for any queries, we loved walking up the 'The View' restaurant and were very well looked after their too - you must visit. Highly, highly recommended to anyone. Thank you to a such a kind family - we miss you and will be back one day.

Relaxing, peaceful, well looked after.

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location for anyone looking for a holiday away from the hubbub of the tourist hotspots.

As soon as we arrived at Villa Faskomilia we felt at home especially when treated to welcome meal of pork and potatoes.

The view from the villa is just breathtaking and I'd recommend getting up early just to watch the sun rise over the mountains while listening to the gentle sound of goat bells and a distant cockerel. It was also nice to take in the view while cooling down in the well maintained pool.

Argiri and her mum Vasso were very warm and welcoming. Argiri had lots of suggestions about where to go during our stay and I would recommend the in-house meal service all cooked by Vasso.

The villa is an ideal base to explore the area, but you will need a car. The View restaurant is within walking distance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Faskomilia and would highly recommend it to those looking for a quieter side of Crete.

A vacation to remember

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Faskomilia and its grounds were both beautiful, well maintained, and spotless. The Vasilaki family, owners, were very friendly, helpful, and definitely deserve a gold star for service. The roadway to the villa is in excellent condition and only a short lovely drive from the coast. The directions provided were easy to follow.

We did a lot of sightseeing on Crete during our 10 day stay on the island. The villa's location was just perfect for our needs. We loved coming back at the end of the day to take a cool dip in the pool and enjoy both the relaxing atmosphere and gorgeous views of both the valley and sea.

We would highly recommend this villa to others and would love to return.

Thank you for the great time at Harkia Villas!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Faksomilia in April for 2 weeks. Our hosts were very kind and offered cleaning and change of towels every 2nd day and did everything for making us feel like home. They also brought us some tasty traditional food from time to time as well as Raki, wine and olive pol. We had a very good vacation and enjoyed the silence and the fresh air very much. Also, the stunning view into the valley including sea view made us feel relaxed suddenly. We will definitely return to the villa to have another great holidays like this!

Excellent holiday in Villa Faskomilia

  • 5 of 5

We had in Augst 2014 an excellent stay in Villa Faskomilia during 12 days (Harkia Villas).

The combination of

- the surrounding hills and valleys and the sea view

- the peace and quiet

- the well equipped accommodation

- the hospitality & discreet care of the owner

We want to thank the owner, who is a lovely person who comes each two days for maintenance and cleaning. We arrived after midnight and she waited for us at a meeting point to show us the way in the dark. When we arrived their was a hot dish, wine, raki, greek salad...! On request she prepares excellent local dishes and cakes, as she is an outstanding cook.

The accommodation is about 10 km away from the beach but this no problem at all. The road is ok and Harkia is a good base for visits to Heraklion, Chania, Rethymnon...

The villa has several terraces where you can sit depending the hour of the day. The swimming pool is large and refreshing.

You should also visit by feet the restaurant The View (500 m further towards Harkia). The owners are most charming and lovely people. On request one day one beforehand they prepare very tasteful local dishes. There is a large terrace with the same breathtaking view. We had several dinners over there and had a real good time.

This was a great experience we can recommend to everyone, with a huge value for money. I can really not find even a minor negative point, besides that our stay was too short ...

Owner's Response: Geert and his family are perfect renters. We were paid on time and the villa was very clean during their stay. But, most importantly, they are very nice persons! They created no problems, they are polite, and we will be very happy to see them again on Crete and in Harkia Villas. Of course, I highly recommend Geert and his family to all homeowners!

Harkia Villas are perfectly positioned; away from the mass tourism but close to everything. The location allows the guests to explore with the same ease destinations in the western and eastern part of the island. The villas are a few kilometres away from the famous Arkadi monastery, and in east of the highest mountain on Crete, Psiloritis. In addition, the sightseeing of the ancient Eleftherna and Margarites pottery are in a close distance. Finally, the nearest beach is only 9 km away.
