Zuhause auf Kreta

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Villa Sifina als Paar gemietet und einen wunderbaren Urlaub verbracht. Die Bilder und Beschreibung sind absolut zutreffend. Es ist dort einfach schön! Ein Steinhaus zu mieten ist ein besonderer Luxus, aber seit wir uns das das erste Mal gegönnt haben, wollen wir keinen anderen Urlaub mehr machen. Der Erholungswert ist phänomenal. Die Villa Sifina bietet alles was das Herz begehrt. Und sollte mal etwas benötigt werden, helfen die Vermieter schnellstens weiter. Die Betreuung ist Erstklassig und sucht ihresgleichen. Tatsächlich fühlen wir uns dort schon wie zuhause!

Klare Linien, viel Komfort, traumhafte Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir unternehmen Reisen seit über 22 Jahren in Griechenland und haben sehr viel gesehen und erlebt. Diesmal hatten wir uns für die Ferienwohnung der Beibls in Kreta entschieden. Wir waren nachhaltig begeistert ! Bester und sehr freundlicher rundum Service bereits bei der Beratung, Anreise und Leihwagenbuchung. Alles hat sehr gut geklappt. Das schöne Steinhaus im klassich kretischen Stil, der gepflegte Garten mit großen Schattenbäuumen, die Aussicht und die Lage: Ein Traum ! Morgens die Vögel in den Bäumen die dann mittags schön Schatten spenden, Blick auf das Meer, absolut ruhige Lage, herrlicher Garten mit altem mediterranem Baumbestand...! Wir waren dort mit unseren zwei jugendlichen Kindern. Die schmucke Steinvilla, sehr gut zu erreichen, einladend mit nettem Pool und einer hübschen, großzügigen Dachterasse auf der man Abends den Sonnenuntergang mit einem Glas Wein in der Hand geniessen konnte. Im Erdgeschoss das Reich der Jugend: Fernsehen mit allen Kanälen, Video, besste Küchenausstattung mit allem was man braucht. Geräumige und nett eingerichtete Zimmer. Super sauber und gepflegt. Frische Handtücher, Reinigung und bester Service. Ca. 6,5 km in die Großstadt Rethymno, 2 km nach Atsipopulo, 8 km nach Gerani ans Meer. Mit eines der schönsten Griechenland Erlebnisse die wir je hatten ! Wir kommen wieder. Michael und Susane aus Deutschland
