This was our third time travelling to Crete and the first time in the Rethymnon area. We can safely say that this was the best vacation we`ve had in Crete. The house was exactly as good or better than the pictures and details said. It was easy to see that the house owners cared alot for their villa. As an fun detail they have a book with pictures showing the erecting of the house.
The garden was amazing, with a large herb garden and an olive tree in the middle. We even used some of the herbs for cooking. But what we will remember best from this vacation was the hospitality and how well we and our kids where cared for. We where given a large fruit basket with delicious wine wich they generously resupplied. We got a very nice cake and the grandmother in the family brought us fresh eggs from her own henhouse. She even came back with sweets for our kids!! One day they arranged an excursion to the ruins of ancient Eleftherna wich was a fantastic experience. On our last day the whole family came by and cooked us traditional cretan food. Never tasted meat that tender before.
I really cant recommend this villa enough, we are definetly coming back this this place as soon as we can. A thousand thanks to the Kostas family for giving us an unforgettable vacation!More
