Local Services & Businesses
The house is large, well appointed, with beautiful flowers and a pool. It is located in a charming village above Rethymno. It would be best to have a car to stay there. The best part is the lovely Alexandra. She is so kind and helpful, plus she gave us some delicious food treats. I would stay for a month or a year if i could!
Immaculately presented villa in a restful location
We just wanted to say thank you for a great holiday at your villa. You’d thought of everything and we really appreciated your effort and the gifts. The villa was perfect for us. We had everything we needed, the house was immaculate and well equipped, the wifi worked great, AC in every room, the pool was refreshing and fun.
We will certainly return!
This lovely villa is exactly as shown in the photographs and Alexandra was the perfect hostess.
Alexandra's genuine concern that our party of 4 had a good holiday extended to having a delicious lunch ready for us on arrival and at the end of a long journey we were all very grateful. The bottle of Raki left for us by Alexandra was also very welcome.
The villa is beautifully appointed and lacks for nothing, there were only 4 of us but the villa could easily house more.
The villa is situated in a quiet position on the edge of a village but within easy reach of Rethymno and perfectly placed to tour a large part of the island.
I can confidently recommend the villa and am most grateful for Alexandra's kindness during our stay and would love to return.
Lovely house in beautiful Cretan village
We have just spent a wonderful 2 weeks in Crete, staying in the lovely house belonging to Alexandra. On arrival we were greeted by Alexandra, a kinder, more welcoming host you couldn't wish to meet. Alexandra had made us a delicious lamb and pasta dish to have on our arrival and during the course of our stay, popped in with more Cretan treats.
The house is beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. There are lovely views of the sea from the balcony, that both upstairs bedrooms open out onto.
Sitting in the garden by the pool you could smell the jasmine and throughout the beautiful village of Prines the lovely smell of figs.
Prines is a very pretty village with a couple of very good tavernas within walking distance. The next village down the hill also has a couple of very good tavernas, a wonderful bakers and coffee shop, as well as a few other shops and bars.
We were amazed at the kindness and generosity of the Cretan people and are already counting down to our return visit to Alexandra's house next summer.
A wonderful villa in a beautiful place
We had a great holiday, enjoying Crete and relaxing in the lovely Villa Phaedra. Alexandra greeted us with warm pastries and a carafe of Raki, both delicious and very welcome.
When she came to check all was well later in the week she arrived with a tasty lemon cake and home made cordial, which everyone loved.
The Villa has a balcony with great views, perfect for breakfast or an evening meal and the pool was great. What really made the holday special though was the warm welcome and friendliness of Alexandra - we hope to see you again very soon!
Lovely villa in nice village!
Thank You Alexandra! We really enjoyed our trip. And your house was perfect for us.
