We spent wonderful 3 weeks at Villa Harmony and enjoyed every single day being there. From the moment we came to Villa we were met by the owner and his wife and it was the warmest welcome we ever had. This warmth and very kind attention to all our needs and requests continued during the whole stay, making us feel as if we were at home away from home.
Villa Harmony is located about 1,5 hour away from Heraclion airport, above Rethymno city on the village called Adele. It could be easily accessed from the National road. The beach is about 2,5 km away from Villa (7 minutes by car). The closest supermarket is just 5 minutes away from the villa. Rethymno downtown is aprx 12 minutes by car. There are pretty much restaurants and local Tavernas around, where we could enjoy traditional Greek food.
Villa itself is temporarily build 2 floors spacious house with 3 cosy bedrooms on the top floor (one bedroom with twin beds, another one with king size and the third with quin size bed) and nice terrace overlooking the village of Adele. On the first floor there is spacious fully equiped kitchen and dining area as well as living room. Thanks to spacious terrace on the first floor we enjoyed having our meal outside. The ground floor of the villa could be nice playground for kids in case of rainy weather. Villa has its own swimming pool, lounge area with sunbeds and barbecue area. It is well protected by automatic gates.
In order we could fully enjoy our holidays, the owners made sure that every 3rd day we had cleaning lady, who cleaned the house, change the towels and made sure that house is well kept. Should we had some questions or requests, the owners were ready to provide full assistance, which of course was highly apreciated.
For us, being with 4,5 years old child, to stay at Villa Harmony was the perfect way. We had our privacy and thanks to own territory, the boy could play football on the lawn, swim in the pool or have pizza whenever he likes. At the same time, we were away from the crowded city or the hotel, full of people and could decide what to do and where to go. We spent half of the day by the sea and could choose the beach we liked, more private or more crowded, the seaside around Rethymno is full of nicely equiped beached. Once during our stay and thanks to advise of the owners, we went to the mountain lake to swim there and see turtles. Also, at least once during the stay, I would highly recommend to go Agreco Farm for traditional Greek Evening - very nice experience both for adults and kids.
To say we enjoyed being at Villa Harmony is to say nothing, we really felt like being at home and were pampered by very kind care of the owners. It was our first greek holidays experience and we all, including our little boy, were extremely happy to be there and took only wonderful memories with us till the next vacations.
We had the pleasure of staying at this amazing villa for 6 nights during our Honeymoon. The owner greeted us in person, provided all the information we needed and included recommendations for tours and restaurants. He and his wife even called for us and helped us book our excursions. The villa is beautifully appointed and decorated and the privacy of the garden and pool were perfect. We will definitely return with friends :)

We spent 4 wonderful days in villa Harmony.The house was fully equiped and decorated with exceptional taste. Owners welcomed us with traditional treats, big smiles and gave us all the possible information we could need from where to eat and shop to where to swim and take a nice walk. Evethough it was really close to the center of Rethimno we practicaly never felt the need to leave the house. Overall a wonderfull experience.
