The friendly and hospitable people and her famous Cretan traditional cuisine -the mother of the Mediterranean diet !-

are some of the highlights of this island.


Highlights of the area are :The historic monastery of Arkadi, Maroulas, Eleftherna, Knossos, Phaestos and Gortyna archaeological-sites, the Kourtalioti gorges, Plakias , the Triopetra and Agios Pavlos beaches in the south coast.

Rethymno is Crete 's third largest town, conveniently placed in the middle of the north coast between Heraklion and Chania, making it ideal base to explore the island, just a forty minute drive to the south coast.

"Two wonderful weeks at Kivotos Villa"

We had a perfect stay at Kivotos Villa with a wonderful view, spacious rooms and a great outdoor area. Many thanks to Eva for taking such good care of us. We where treated with fresh vegetables, cucumber pie and panacotta. We also went back to Norway with homemade olive oil and freshly dried oregano. Hopefully we will be back in not too long.

"Beautiful villa and amazing hospitality"

Villa is very nice, perfectly maintained, well equipped and surrounded by Mediterranean garden. Location is quiet, remote, on the hillside and with beautiful sea views, but on the same time not far away from village and beach. It will take only 3-4 minutes by car to reach village where you will find many restaurants or taverns and 4-5 minutes to the nearest beach. However, car is must if you are planning to stay at this property. Everything was smooth: from booking, arrival until departure. Eva was not available evening we arrived, so her mother waited for as at meeting point on coastal road. Old lady speaks English very good, showed way to villa, gave introduction to property and drive thru tour – where supermarkets are located and best places to eat. Welcome pack worth to be mentioned – one of the best we ever received. Hospitality of Eva and her husband Sakis was amazing, we felt like being part of their family. Kivotos Villa is the perfect place to stay and we will definitely return there one day. Small tips: 1. Coordinates for GPS navigation N35.35370 E24.54327 – it’s easy to arrive; 2. Don’t be too friendly with a cat as it might become little intrusive.

"Absolutely Fabulous!"

We had a wonderful week at Kivotos villa. Eva and her husband Sakis could not do enough for us and were so hospitable but not at all intrusive. The villa itself is lovely, spotlessly clean and the beds are super comfy (very important for us when we are on hols). It is also very safe for younger children and would be perfect for disabled guests as it was all built with this in mind. The welcome pack was much better than we have had in the past, which was a nice treat. There are tremendous views of Rethymno Bay and the surrounding countryside. We had some lovely BBQ's on the veranda and really made the most of the pool. The couple's daughter came over many times to play with our girls, much to their delight. We were able to pick some cucumbers from the vegetable garden, which was lovely. Also Eva is very happy to escort you to the local supermarket and is full of advice on the best products to buy (the feta cheese was to die for!). We liked the fact that the entrance to the villa is gated and very secure. It might be also worth mentioning that the free internet access was excellent and very high speed (another thing that is important for us). The old town of Rethymnon is really fantastic, with beautiful cobbled streets and refurbished buildings and only a short drive away. We would definitley return to this region again and Kivotos Villa is the perfect place to stay. The olive oil that Eva made and gave us to bring home was super and it reminds me of them every time I cook. Wish we were there now!!
