Lovely villa, with excellent views and very accommodating hosts

  • 5 of 5

Very warm welcome with hosts meeting us late at night at the closest highway exit and leading us to the villa. Owner had prepared some food for our arrival, which was very kind and much appreciated . During our stay we were also given fruit and vegetables by the hosts. Villa is well presented and spacious, with quality air conditioning in all the rooms. Pool was maintained/cleaned every 2/3 days: a lovely area to relax in. Villa well located for tourist attractions, beaches, water sports, restaurants etc, however car is essential.

Villa met all our requirements, we enjoyed the tranquility of its setting and we would highly recommend and happily stay again.

Peaceful, convenient location and warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

We've enjoyed the House and the location. The house is very comfortable and The swimming pool was perfect. The place is very calm. We have appreciated the warm welcome of the owners and the home-made chocolate cake with the wine and the olive oil. And it was lovely to have dinner on the Terrace and breakfast in the morning with the wonderful view. Very convenient with a car to mix the quietness and go quickly to shops, town and beaches. Would strongly recommand this place.

Peace and Tranquility with a Personal Touch

  • 4 of 5

We first discovered Old Fountain Villas in the autumn of 2014 and have just completed our third stay. Set in the Galatas hills overlooking the distant sea, we find the four-bedroomed villa quiet and peaceful. Surrounded by olive trees and orange groves we hear the twitter of birds and can see raptors flying over the valley. If you like to be away from it all, yet within easy reach of the local village, and about ten to fifteen minutes from the local beaches adjacent "the strip", there is no better place.

Helen and Mike directed us to the taverna in Galatas village, run by a local family who offer a variety of delicious Cretan dishes. If you fancy a change there are ample tavernas along the "strip" and we found some particularly good food off the main street just up the hillside. There are also two very large supermarkets within easy reach which Helen and Mike again told us how to find.

The villa has very comfortable beds, three bathrooms and plenty of alternative seating areas. Eating out on the upper terrace which is well shaded, is a treat. There is a large unheated swimming pool with a spacious area for sun-loungers.

If you fancy a day out we prefer the beach at Gorgona, down "the strip", turning right immediately before the traffic lights and Sylk Oil garage on the left. There are ample sun loungers on the beach for hire, beach restaurant serving excellent food and a children's play area if the youngsters like to do something different. Chania town also provides a good day out with a wealth of restaurants and shops to keep you occupied.

In Helen and Mike we have found hosts who are so kind and friendly. They give us space yet are so attentive keeping us supplied with olive oil, eggs if the chickens are laying well and vegetables from the garden depending on the season. We can say they are the best hosts we have encountered in 25 years of hiring villas in Western Europe.

This last year we were accompanied by our two daughters and their respective partners and two grandchildren. Such was the good time had by all we received an immediate request to book again for 2017. The dates are already in Helen's diary.

Quiet location with superb views

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the villas and it was even better than the first. We have not slept or relaxed as much for a long time on holiday. The villas all have outstanding views, we enjoyed the privacy of your own pool. Chania only 15 mins away, although the local shops and supermarket 5 mins away, a car is essential. Helen and Mike are very discreet but on hand to help with anything. They provide the most amazing olive oil, cake, bread, vegetables and we even had a lemon tree in our graden. Their kindness and generosity knows no bounds and we will not hesitate to visit their special place in Crete again.

Two Weeks of Total Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a Villa where the facilities are good and the owner is both hospitable and doesn't interfere when you are there then look no further thah Villa Michael.

Helen was extremely helpful in meeting us when we arrived and taking us straight to the Villa--and we were welcomed with home made cakes, wine, olive oil and Raki, as well as being able to pick fresh lemons and apricots from the trees in the garden.

A really relaxing and pleasant two weeks and we would certainly recommend this to others who want peaceful surroundings but somewhere that is close to Chania and a not too long a drive from Rethymnon.

Thanks Helen for making it a really good two weeks.

Absolutely wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Michael was peaceful and relaxing. The views of the sea coupled with the surrounding olive groves, beautiful gardens and privacy make it a perfect getaway. The hosts were very friendly and accomodating. The villa itself is very clean, tastefully decorated and has every amenity you need. We would highly recommend this property and plan to come back someday.

Old Fountain Villas are located on the outskirts of the small beautiful traditional village of Galatas. Galatas is rich in history , heritage, kind people, and beautiful scenery. You can walk or drive to reach the town's local markets, cafes, and tavernas, serving authentic Cretan cuisine. There is a butcher shop with organic meat and produce, a local bakery 100 years old, mini market with daily fresh fruits and vegetables. Old Fountain Villas are located 7 km from the cosmopolitan and beautiful city of Chania. When visiting Chania, you can visit the venetian port ,the museum, shops, restaurants, boat tours, and galleries. When you are ready to leave the pool and go to the beach, you will be able to visit numerous beautiful beaches within a 5 km radius (Kalamaki, Agioi Apostoloi, Crisi Akti, and Platania). The natural Lake of Agia is only 2 km away,with many activities,including bird watching,walking around the beautiful lake or enjoy an ice cream on the cafe. Also the water park of Limnoupolis is 3km away,lots of fun for everyone!!

I can not end my reccomondation if I don't mention the most beautiful beaches in Europe,Elafonisi ,Falassarna and Balos. All three are within the borough of Chania. Not far away,it worth the trip!

If you are interested for additional information do not hesitate to contact Mike and Helen,the owners of the villas.
