Very Good

“The vacation we did not want to be ended.”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2012

We do not travel much, but this was our best vacation so far. Very nice, quiet place just in 10 minutes of driving to the center of Rethimno (we definately recommend to you to rent a car), so you can spend a lovely time in the town and if you are tired, you can have a rest at the villa at any time of the day without disturbing and noise. If you need internet connection, you can use wifi at many bars and cafes in the town. We allways rent a car when we travel and there are really many beautiful places to visit on the island. The villa situation is very convenient, so you can travel the half of Crete in any direction from Chania to Heraklion and even more. Allways take the swimsuits with you!! The house is of a very good quality and even more beautiful and cosy than it appears on the photos- we were pleasantly surprised. There are 3 similar houses, so you can enjoy your stay with your friends, especially families with children. Having fun at the swimming pool, drinking morning coffe under the cosy olive trees- I am going to remember these moments during the whole dark northern winter!! Special thanks to the lovely owners Nick, Maria and Elia for the warmest welcome we have ever experienced, the warm evening on the veranda with a very tasty Greek dinner. Very nice people and are allways helpful in any situation. You can also buy the genuine home made olive oil from the very same olive trees around the villa, so you can take a little part of this stay with you. We have already made an original traditional Greek salad with this oil for our friends at home- very tasty ))))

Owner's reply: Good morning Vladimir and Olga! We received your review and we thank you for writing it. Thank you also for your kind words. Have a nice rest of summer! Maria, Nick & Elia

“Warm and welcoming”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2012

Staying at the Villa Athina is like staying with a friend, if you're lucky enough to have a friend who is a meticulous housekeeper with a comfortable 2 bedroom house surrounded by olive trees and flowers. The owners are very hospitable--Maria presented us with raki and snacks on our arrival, plus a bottle of their house pressed olive oil. Later on she brought over a salad of greens from her garden. It's a short drive to Rethymno from the house.
