"Fab villa- a home from home!"

We stayed here at the very beginning of October. The villa was lovely, really well equipped and clean. The pool was clean and the roof terrace and BBQ well used!
It was a lovely and quiet, a bit away from shops/pubs etc so not right in the middle of things , however near enough that you can walk to the nearest pub and shop in about ten minutes... and there were always taxis to get you home if needed!

We were very sad to leave.

"What a fantastic family holiday we had at this superb accomodation!!"

We are a family of 4, and we need to book places with 2 separate bedrooms. This had 2 bedrooms, a lovely lounge and kitchen, and although the pool is shared with 1 other property, the other 1 was empty during our stay, so we had exclusive use of the pool, right out side our front door. It was lovely. My wife could swim in the morning on her own, I could swim with my son in the evenings. It was absolutely brilliant. Its fully air conditioned. They had satellite TV, games like cards and chess, a safe box, your own parking space, so everything you could need. The accommodation was clean, modern and in very good condition. The only down sides were, the water stops running to the property for a couple of hours late afternoon to early evening each day, you have to walk the bins down to the skips about 100 yards away, and the bathroom floor gets soaked whenever you take a shower, but these issues were all very trivial and we loved the place!!!!

Thank you glad to hear that you all enjoyed your stay at Sofia
sorry about the water supply it only happens from time to time hope it didn't trouble you to much, but its out of our hands.
As for the bathroom I have to agree although it was designed as a wet room it can be a small problem, and for that reason we have put it on our to-do list for next year
since you stay we have added a hammock and picnic table to the roof terrace , hopefully we will se you again

"Lovely location, peaceful."

My Mum and I stayed a week at Sofia. The villa is in a very quiet area, but still very close to the main road which makes it easy to get around and explore. The view from the rooftop is great and ther… More

Thank you, glad you and your Mother enjoyed your Holiday at Villa Sofia, hopefully we will see you again in the future

"Great place, great location and would go back"

Lovely place, well kitted out, good directions. If anything the photos don't do it justice as we found it larger than expected and four adults fitted in comfortably. Great 2 hour mountain drive to south of island just by turning rigth out of the car park and just about going straight!
The only drawback was the shower. The curtain is ineffectual and with four people showering, occasionally twice a day the floor was always wet but this was a minor problem that would probably solve itself at hotter times of the year.

Thank you glad you all enjoyed your stay at Sofia, we would love to have you back, as for the shower curtain I agree ,it was only put in to protect the wash basin cupboard as it's a wet room design ,and you are correct not a problem in the hotter weather

"Stunning,Immaculate, Beautifully Furnished"

We had a wonderful time. Super communication by the owners. We will go back again and again. The apartment is brand new and luxurious but value for money.

Thank you Hope to see you again

"Brilliant, relaxing stay."

A lovely well equipt villa, facilities excellent, fly screens were a nice touch. We enjoyed a peaceful relaxing holiday. Roof top terrace an added bonus. No extra charges, i.e. for air con. Will be back

Thank you Glad you enjoyed your stay, although mosquitos are not a great problem at the Villa
We found it preferable to sleep with the bedroom doors open on very hot nights; I'm a light sleeper and find the hum of an air-con unit even on night setting disturbing.

"Perfect little home from home for those familiar with the area"

We really liked that this apartment was owned by an English couple, as this made it feel like much more of a "home from home" than staying somewhere more Cretan or traditional. Great size for two adults or a couple with one/two children. The villa is a good 10-15 mins outside of Rethymno (the main town) but Adelianos Kampos and Platanes, two suburb-like areas of Rethymno, are only 5 mins away and have a great variety of supermarkets, bakeries, etc to keep the kitchen well stocked. The bathroom drain can be a little aromatic, shall we say - but a regular spot of bleach sorted that out! All in all a great little pad for our two week stay, and we would definitely book again.

Thank you for your comments as you know this was the first season that the Villa has being available for letting your comments are appreciated the drains are connected to a septic tank and occasionally
Can be a little aromatic, we will be installing air purifier for 2013.
hopefully you will come again in 2013

"we would re-book and recommend Villa Sofia"

Great villa for a relaxing holiday well equipped Home and nicely furnished you immediately feel that this is somebody's home and not just a holiday let, the vila was spotlessly clean, swimming pool also clean and water quality excellent. Car not essential but recommended as the taxi from the airport can be expensive two local supermarkets within five and 15 min walk although for major shop best to drive 15 min to the larger Lidl, a few local restaurants are only a short walk away. beach approx 10 mins walk .
we would re-book and recommend.

Thank you for taking good care of the Villa, and hopefully we will see you again
