Great location for us as a group (two couples).It was out in the countryside which we like , but only a couple of miles from shops and restaurants. We have been hiring villas all over Europe for the last 25 years , and this was only our second visit to Greece (both via Agni travel) , and we were not disappointed ! Excellent service from everyone. Thank you.

We have just returned from the most fantastic 12 day holiday in Villa Garifallia.
The villa was spotlessly clean and comfortable but it was the outside space that sets the villa apart. Gorgeous and fragrant bougainvillea framed the most breathtaking Mediterranean Sea view, ever changing and with the most glorious sunsets.
We spent many a happy evening playing cards on the outside terraces both upstairs and downstairs.
The pool was a very welcome oasis during the heat of the day and it too, was kept spotlessly clean by the very friendly Costos, who also worked at Katetina taverna 5mins walk from the villa. Very worth a visit to meet some super friendly and welcoming locals namely Valandes and Michael.
Trips worth taking are Spinaloga, the monastery at Arkadi, and the
pyschros caves although be warned very steep climb up to and down into the caves.
We had an automatic car for the entire holiday which we made use of every day, even if only just for a trip to Rethymno to stroll along the beach. Would advise though a four wheel drive or at least a manual, as the roads can be very steep, somewhat challenging and not always paved!!!
There is so much to discover on Crete its a magical place full of history and with wonderfully warm people. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend Villa Garifallia and Agni Travel.
beautiful villa in Crete
We loved our 5 day stay at the villa. The views are amazing. As the villa is on the hill, you get unobstructed views both of sunrise and sunset. The keepers are really helpful and friendly and the villa itself is very comfortable and well kept.

Our Family of 4 had a very relaxing 10 day stay at the Villa. Maid Service was excellent and friendly. The views are stunning and the outside area surrounding the villa is what sets this property apart. Car hire was going to cost between 30 -35 Euros per day and a Taxi Transfer to Rethymno takes about 10 mins and costs 30 Euros return. We decided not to hire car as it costs about the same as taxis and we could all enjoy a drink and not worry about driving. We just stocked up on supplies before getting the taxi back at night. That said we were the only family without a car in comparison with all the families staying at the other 3 villas. I think most people would recommend having a car, but its a personal choice.
You must visit the Taverna Katerina in the village. The host called Vilades is a true character, the views are wonderful and the food is great. The village is like stepping back in time and is very quite, but has a special feel to it. You get a true taste of the real Greece far removed from the tourist trail. Everybody is so very friendly.
The WI-FI is OK but our Kids 16 & 14 didnt think it was consistent and didnt extend to the upstair bedrooms. Not a huge deal though.
I would recommend Agni Travel and also this Villa, if you want a relaxing holiday round the pool.

Although I understand it?s self catering it would have been nice if more than one bin liner had been supplied
Also felt bad not recycling plastics etc
It is just a short walk, via a foot path, to the village of Maroulas. The excellent Katerina Taverna is closest to the villa.
Maroulas is a picturesque medieval village set above the bay of Rethymnon. The village is a UNESCO heritage site and features two watchtowers from the times of the Venetians. The cobbled streets and stone paths serve pretty whitewashed houses, three little tavernas and a few local shops. The village, although very quiet, is just a few minutes away by car from the town of Rethymnon and 3 km from some of the most outstanding beaches in the area.
