Quiet and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We spent two weeks at the Arcadia Villas, Marina was extremely helpful and even met us to ensure we arrived safely. Our apartment was roomy although the kitchen is a little basic. The locale is very peaceful and very close to Skaleta and Rethymon beaches. I would say a car is a must as it is a good distance to local shops etc. If you are looking for a quiet location to rest while you explore all the Crete has to offer or somewhere to relax Arcadia villas is perfect

Relaxing apartment

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a lovely few days at this apartment. It's a really peaceful place to stay, with views to sea from our balcony, where we could watch the sun set each night. The pool was a good size and we had it to ourselves the majority of the time we were there. George was very quick in his replies to my emails and Marina helped us on arrival, taking us to the local supermarket and recommending some good tavernas. The apartment's up in the hills so you'll need a car to reach the beach, restaurants and supermarket but they're only a short drive away. The main road (E75) connecting the east of the island to the west is very accessible, making it easy to get to from the airport and easy to go on day trips.

Great villa to explore beautiful Crete

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 which truly enjoyed our in Arkadi Hills Estate having arrived by car which we rented at the Heraklion airport. Google maps has the location identified which facilitated the navigation to the location of the apartment.

The apartment was centrally located and allowed us to make day-trips in all directions to Chania, Heraklion / Knossos and the Preveli beach on the southern coast.

The apartment was clean and equipped and provided space for all. Our kids enjoyed the clean pool every day.

George welcomed us warmly and gave us a good overview of the lodging and recommended we download the Arkadi Hill App on our smartphone which contains a trove of information about Crete. From that moment onwards George was also always available for any questions or issues.

Thank you George !

Cheers from Chicago - Hans

Very good choice.

  • 5 of 5

We are very satisfied with our stay in Arkadi Hills Estate. Apartments were clean and fully equipped. Location for sightseeing was excelent ( recommended to rent a car). It is a good place to rest with sea view. Our kids used the swimming pool (with clear water) all days and nights and they were very happy of this. Nearby, there are many beaches but we had favourite one in Shinaria. The owner is very friendly and reliable if you have any questions or issue.

I hope we will back to Crete and Arkadi Hills Estate soon.

Thank you George and special thanks for Ntina that we could live next to. Greetings from Poland.

Wunderbares Feriendomizil / amazing vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Wenn man die Bilder des Ferienhäuschens in den Bergen bei Skaleta sieht, denkt man: Das kann doch nicht wirklich so schön sein? Aber doch, das ist es! Super gemütliches, sauberes und gut ausgestattetes Ferienhaus mit Meerblick, eigenem Pool (der in der Off-Season allerdings sogar kälter war, als das Meer) und einer super netten Haushälterin (Thanks, Mrs. Rena!).

Der Vermieter Giorgos/George war sehr zuverlässig und zuvorkommend, gerade was die Organisation vor und nach dem Aufenthalt anging.

Da das Häuschen tatsächlich in den Bergen, etwas "ab vom Schuss" liegt, ist ein Auto hilfreich - und man sollte sich vorher genau anschauen, wie man hinkommt ;)

Liebe Grüße / Best regards!

Teresa & Moritz
