Properties on Holiday Lettings can be sorted/ranked in the following ways:
Orders properties using various data points, in particular: ratings, number of bedrooms/bathrooms, minimum number of nights, and data relating to the interest in/bookings of the property through us, including the advertiser’s rate of providing quotes to travellers who make enquiries. Other factors include price, property capacity, number of photographs, location, amenities, appearance in search results, page views, and the advertiser’s responsiveness and cancellation rate.
Price low to high / high to low
Orders properties based on either (i) the property’s minimum nightly price, if the traveller has searched without dates, or (ii) the average nightly price for the applicable week of the year, if the traveller has input dates.
Orders properties by total number of reviews attached to the listing (highest to lowest), irrespective of average score. Where there is a listing with the same number of reviews as another (or a listing with no reviews), properties are sorted according to their proximity to the searched location.
“A wonderful place to stay with the opportunity to meet a Cretan family who are so generous and hospitable” We have been staying at Villa Aphroditi every year since 2003. Returning is like coming to a second home with the chance to meet the Sofoulaki family again. Their generosity and hospitality over the years has been outstanding such that we have come to feel part of an extended family. Dimetri and Roula are such excellence hosts as are their children Stella and George, both of whom we have seen get married and now who have children of their own.
This villa is in a really private location yet only 5 minutes from the local village of Prines where Dimetri and Roula live. The villa is spacious, extremely well appointed and surrounded by extensive grounds which include a large freestanding BBQ and separate Pizza oven.There is also a table tennis table and of course a wonderful swimming pool where the water is often still so warm even late at night. This year has seen all new loungers and parasols and Dimetri will come every day at sunrise to clean the pool and surrounding area while Roula will clean and change bedding and towels twice in a week. I should also mention the local taverna in Prines where Yannis will serve up some food with great service.
If you have never been to this villa and met this family i would recommend the experience to you without reservation!!
“Small and perfectly formed” We stayed at Iperion in June 2017 and the villa was great. It is a small villa but felt surprisingly spacious. The bedrooms were clean and well presented and the outside space was lovely. The communal pool was very warm and had great views over the countryside and down to the ocean. Normally on self catering holidays you are left to get on with things on your own but here Stalios came to visit us twice during our stay and gave us recommendations on what to see and do in the area. The villa was also cleaned twice in the 10 days we were there which was fantastic.
The location is great if you have a car because you are about 20 minutes from the centre of Rethymnon, so you are close to the beach and town but it is nice and quiet back at he villa. Do bare in mind that the road to the villa is quite steep and bumpy so be prepared to drive on some thin roads. Overall we had a lovely holiday and would recommend this villa.
