“Perfect villa for a relaxing family holiday”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were greeted by Manolis, the owner, who was so helpful and kind. The villa was in such a beautiful location and was equipped with everything we needed. It was perfectly clean and the pool/gardens were also faultless. Such a nice thought to have some local provisions awaiting our arrival, and the Moussaka delivered to us during our stay was delicious! Great place to relax and unwind, whilst not being too far from local shops and places to visit. Highly recommend.

“Perfect stay in Crete”

person found this review helpful

A wonderful warm welcome from Manolis to Villa Maria started our holiday, including a very generous "welcome pack" with food enough to not have to go shopping straight away.
The villa is perfect; beautiful views, quiet and fully equipped and cleaned twice a week.
The location is great to get to plenty of sites within an hour.
We would really recommend this to anyone travelling with a young family too.

“Excellent accommodation, sound location, wonderful people.”
Reviewed 10 December 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I stayed at the villa the first two weeks of May 2014. The venue is among the best I have ever stayed through out the Mediterranean. It combines high quality accommodation with a beautiful and peaceful location. Ideal for families with children. My boys enjoyed their time in the pool. It is also a 10 minutes drive from the famous Kavros beach and 20 minutes drive from the two major cities of the western Crete: Chania and Rethymno. The staff was friendly and willing to help in all cases. The overall experience was wonderful. I will definitely visit again.

“A fabulous place for a peaceful away from it all break”
Reviewed 26 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The Villa is set in the most beautiful of surroundings in the hills in the village of Alikampos some 8km or so from the sea.The views from the villa are fabulous and it's quiet position allowed us to really wind down. Facilities at the Villa are excellent and Manolis and his family couldn't do enough for us including some wonderful homemade cooking to greet us late at night when we arrived and during our stay. Manolis drove some 8km to meet us and show us the way to the village. Overall fantastic.

“Great villa, amazing views”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Let me start by saying that Manolis was absolutely exceptional from beginning to end. He was quick to reply to emails and his customer service and overall attention to detail was outstanding. He even turned up one day to drop off some ice cream he'd picked up that was made with local ingredients. I'm not exaggerating when I say it's the best ice cream I've ever had! There are 2 villas here. We stayed in Villa Maria which is a bit more private than Villa Manolis although both looked great. It's well designed and absolutely spotless. It's situated with views across the mountains so the sunsets were spectacular! It would've been difficult to find had Manolis not shown us but once shown it was actually really easy to locate. Vrises is a 5-10 min drive for a supermarket (or a sly cold one by the fountains with the father in law before heading back to our respective wives!). Georgioupolis beach is 10-15 mins. We did a day trip to Rethymnon one day which is great in the evening. It gets busy on Saturday and the guys outside the port side restaurants are annoying and pushy but apart from that it's a chilled day out spending your hard earned cash on handmade trinkets to stick in a drawer when you get home. The bakery in Vrises is very good and well priced. They do all sorts from Pizza to cakes and ice creams. (If you're heading out to eat try Dakos. It's a bruscetta derivative with a barley rusk, tomatoes and a sheeps milk cheese called Mizithra. Simple but amazing). I'd recommend these villas to anybody looking for a relaxing week in the sun and a good base to travel out from for a day out. We will be back!
