“Lovely stay”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Amazing welcome at Villa Aikaterini, with the kitchen stocked with wine, milk, butter and a huge array of Greek treats, including an amazing dessert. It fed us for three nights!

The villa itself is spacious, with two separate living areas and kitchens, perfect for families or a group of friends (Although the stairs between floors are quite steep). Beautiful views, great pool and an amazing BBQ area. An outdoor child's play area with lots of toys was a perk and our children were catered for with high chairs, baby bath and cots.

We loved our stay!

“Relaxing family holiday”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We wanted to get away from it all and really unwind which this Villa allowed us to do. The Villa is beautiful with amazing views and well equipped. The owners were incredibly hospitable and bought amazing home cooked cakes and pastries every time they turned up to clean which we loved. The place itself would be ideal for two families wanting to get away. The local village of Plaka was ideal for supplies with lovely restaurants for the evening (only 5 mins walk away) However we did find that the beach was a bit more of a trek that anticipated, if our kids were a bit older it may have been ok but after the winging all the way back we decided to drive down the following time.

Great location. Travelling with a young family we were able to walk down the hill to the nearest village that had an excellent selection of tavernas and either walk back or taxi. Outstanding views and not overlooked. The family owners were just lovely and looked after us very well. Always told to call at whatever time if we needed anything and they were only five mins away. the villa is beautiful, very clean, well equipped and the lay out accommodated our party brilliantly. Excellent holiday and perfect for a real chill out and relax!

We spent 10 very enjoyable days at Villa Aikaterini. Booking & arrangements for airport transfers, food shopping & information about the local area were made simple, thanks to Ariadne of Authentic Crete, Georgios (local taxi) & Sandra, who visited us to make sure we had all the info we needed.
On arrival, despite the late hour, we were greeted by the owners, who were welcoming & attentive. They left us a spread of food to enjoy & spoiled us with home baked treats throughout our stay. Thank you, Angeliki.
The villa was secure, spacious, clean & very well appointed. The grounds were immaculate & there was plenty outside furniture with various outside seating options. Every window had insect screen doors, beds were comfortable & special mention has to be made of the soft cotton bed linen, changed twice a week.
The only disappointment was the pool. It was one of the main reasons we had booked this villa but we found it so uncomfortably cold that we were unable to make use of it. The pool is an integral part of the villa hire, so we feel it should be usable whenever the villa is available for rent. Perhaps solar panels could be used to heat the pool, as they are to heat the water.
Despite this, we would have no hesitation recommending or returning to this lovely villa.

“Thoroughly enjoyable holiday in lovely, well-positioned villa, with wonderful views.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My two daughters, son in law and two grandchildren and myself spent two weeks in this lovely villa. We arrived in the early hours of the morning to be greeted by owners who had provided a delicious spread of food which was quite unexpected. This lasted us for at least two days! The villa was in a lovely position on top of a hilltop looking down a ravine to the sea. It was well fitted out to a high standard. We enjoyed walking to the local villages and walks around the area. The owners could not have been more helpful when there was a problem with the gates and electricity- living nearby they dealt with the problems immediately. The cleanliness was excellent and the food provided by Angelika was superb and the Easter food basket was an additional bonus and very thoughtful. We would all thoroughly recommend a stay in this lovely villa. PS being English some mugs would have been useful for our tea!!
