Modern, well finished 2-bed villa in peaceful village overlooking olive groves with views to surrounding mountains. Agent & Owner were extremely helpful. Maid and Pool cleaning service included. Villa is easy to find and perfect if you are looking for a relaxing quiet location. Set in the hils above Rethymon, just 10 minutes drive from the beach and approximately an hour from either main airport. Perfect size for 2 couples/family of 4. Hire car is essential and expect to drive to all restraurants. Only one small negative - local dog & rooster conversation @ 4am, but you should expect it in such a lovely rural location! We would definitely stay again.
Stratos Beretis Aphrodite Villa is an amazing place. It is incredibly quiet and relaxing, yet still close to shops and the beach. The local people were friendly and welcomed us into the area. The house is nicely done with lots of little touches that show that the owners have done it with love and care. As the first to stay here we felt honoured, this truly is an amazing villa. Our friends in London have now started looking into this villa as it was special. The pool is amazing and it has a beautiful view that extends all the way to the mountains. We really enjoyed having meals by the pool looking at the view, feeling far away from the stresses of life! Aggleos is also an amazing host. Always available to help with anything you need, from recommending beaches to buying us coal to have a BBQ! And he is very flexible when it comes to meeting you to give you the keys or before you leave. Thank you for picking us up and welcoming us into your home with such amazing treats (the bake goods were yummy!) So, Aphrodite Villa is truly a special place and we left feeling really rested and relaxed....and at peace with the world!
Fantastic place, very kind owner, all perfect, thanks
The villa is amazing and was exactly what I wanted for a holiday. The villa has everything it states it does, including all the necessary cutlery, pots, pans, a washing machine, a dishwasher, etc. The swimming pool was very nice and was cleaned a few times during our stay. The villa is very spacious with the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and plenty of seating area both inside and out to eat or have a drink. We particularly enjoyed having breakfast outside near the pool which gave it the true holiday feeling.
The villa is everything you could want and more.
The only criticism I have of the stay is that the owner came to the villa too often. Whilst it was very much appreciated that he was checking that we were ok and had everything we wanted/needed, too many visits make it uncomfortable and slightly frustrating. During our 7 day stay the owner came to the villa on at least 4 of those days. Perhaps less visits or some notice if he was going to visit rather than turning up out of the blue would be appreciated. It is slightly awkward sitting down to breakfast and having an unannounced visit in the middle of eating.
That said, the villa and the holiday were perfect and the owner was very quick to deal with any issues we raised, such as no shower curtain in the downstairs shower, he returned the following morning with a curtain for us.
I would definitely recommend this villa for anyone looking for a nice holiday and I will definitely be returning very soon.
Thanks to the owner Aγγελος, but also to Island Crete agency. We knew exactly in which area we wanted to stay and it was in one word "awesome"!
Excellent villa. We stayed there at the end of July. It is fully equipped and very clean. It is very convenient, to do everything and too close to the city of Rethimno. My teenage son and his friend wouldn't leave the pool and preferred staying home than go out. The owner of the Villa was very polite and distinctive. He was very helpful as well with everything we need. The agent that we booked the villa (islandcrete) was the best we have so far cooperated with. We are totally satisfied with our vacation in Crete and hope to go back next year.
If you are looking for great night life, this villa isn't for you, however, if you are looking for a relaxing holiday, this place will suit you to a tee. The villa is in a small village, which has 1 mini market, 1 petrol station and 1 taverna. The villa has all that you need for a relaxing holiday. It has its own swimming pool, which is a fine size for this villa. The rooms are all modern and the beds are comfortable. All in all there is everything you need for a peaceful holiday.
Sauber, gemütlich und sehr gut ausgestattet! Gerne wieder!
