“Absolutely love Villa Emanuele - the perfect place to stay in Crete!”
Reviewed 23 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Absolutely loved Villa Emanuele! This villa is the perfect place to stay in Crete. From the moment you drive to the villa surrounded by olive groves and are greeted by the lovely Kriti and Manolis you will love this place. We were welcomed with a delicious warm homemade meal together with wine and a wonderful basket of organic fruit and veg. We were then shown the vegetable patch where we could go and help ourselves. We made so many delicious greek salads!

Then the villa itself exceeded our expectations and was even nicer than in the pictures. It had everything we would possibly need and more. Modern and contemporary facilities and it was really clean. The villa smelt so nice too. The highlight for me was the terrace with the most beautiful serene views & sunset. We had many evenings enjoy the quietness and sound of nature - you can only hear birds. The villa has a really lovely aura.

My children loved staying at Villa Emanuele too. You feel safe in the enclosed garden with its beautiful exotic trees and plants. The pool itself is lovely and the clever use of a boat with comfortable lounge seating was really cool. My kids loved the novelty of the warm outdoor shower too.

I would recommend hiring a car as we did to see the surrounding areas. Chania Harbour is a lovely and only a short drive away. The villa is a good base to explore the Western Crete - we went to some of the most beautiful beaches in Crete - like Elafonisi.

Manolis and Kriti are available to help and are so kind and helpful with any queries and have some great recommendations. We went to the Botanical Gardens on their recommendation and it was so lovely and well worth making the trip to and the restaurant was amazing - the food and views was something special.

I would highly recommend a stay at Villa Emanuele - we loved everything about it! Thank you Kriti and Manolis - you made our stay so comfortable.

“Heaven on Earth”

THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!!! I cannot find the words to describe Villa Emanuele. Elegant, classy, designed and furnished with love and attention to the details. Perfectly clean and functional. Impeccable. Really congratulations to the owners for creating a small Paradise on Earth. We will miss waking up in complete silence, our morning swim in the pool, and then breakfast and dinners on the terrace. What a view! We liked it so much that we were almost sorry to go outdoors to visit Crete. Manolis and Kriti are very efficient, discrete and polite (and speak an excellent English). We are very happy we chose them (it was a bit of a risk since they are new), and now we wish we could have stayed longer. In the future we will definitely stay longer. If you come to northern Crete, Villa Emanuele is a must!

“The best experience of Crete”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This house is the height of designer luxury, down to every little detail, bathrobes and slippers, even a gym, fabulously comfortable beds, glorious views from the many balconies across olive groves to a vista of turquoise sea and mountains. The pool is surrounded by palm trees, and a renovated old wooden Cretan boat converted to a seating area. This beautiful house is situated in a quiet location inland amid olive trees, but only 5 min drive from the sea and restaurants at Planatias. This would be enough for any visitor but for us, best of all was the warmth, character and generosity of spirit of our hosts, Kriti and Emmanuel. We arrived to a kitchen full of goodies, self harvested olive oil, herbs and local wine. They introduced us to a fantastic local restaurant where we shared delicious Cretan food, listening to the waves on the shore, cooling breeze, and even the Perseids shooting across the sky for an incredible light show of shooting stars. We had the most lovely and memorable stay, thanks to Kriti and Emmanuel.
