Unbelievable place, house and details.
Alexandra’s place was amazing. Perfect location with amazing views over the water and walkable distance to the beach. Not that you need it because the pool area upstairs was everything we needed and more. Infinity pool was spectacular, and we enjoyed the sunsets with a Prosecco in hand. Place was exceptionally clean and had every amenity we needed for the week. If we did need to contact Alexandra she was very quick in responding and extremely helpful. Christina across the road even assisted with a last minute baby sitter! Location with local cafes downstairs was also very convenient. Such a lovely relaxing week, and we were all very sorry to leave. Would love to return soon. Definitely recommend staying!
We spent a month here with my family 5-7 persons in June/July. Location of the villa is as central as possible in the area. You still have privacy also in the pool area. Villa has been build with very good quality materials and the layout gave everyone their own space whenever needed. Alexandra helped with all the questions/extra needs we had. She’s very efficient and reliable. Thanks’ also to Christina’s mother who surprised us few times with delicious local food.
First Class In Every Way! We just returned from our week at Villa Celestine. It was amazing! We’ve been traveling to Europe for almost 20 years and this is our favorite house. The pictures show you how beautiful it is but it’s also incredibly comfortable. From the welcome basket to the bathroom amenities, every little detail makes you feel special. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are lovely (even heated floors!). It was difficult to pull ourselves away from the third floor pool area — just exquisite! We also cooked quite a bit and the kitchen has everything you need — and more! The guest book includes great information about operating the home’s appliances and getting the most out of the area. Special thanks to Alex and Christina for all their help in making our trip so magical. If you have the chance to stay at this beautiful home, you will not be disappointed!
Une maison de rêve! Nous avons adoré notre séjour! La maison est top, super propre, très bien aménagée avec tout le confort et le roof top avec la piscine est un vrai bonheur. Le village est très tranquille mais il y a tout ce qu’il faut et notamment plein de tavernes sympas au bord de l’eau. L’accueil et la disponibilité d’Alexandra sont très précieux; elle est disponible dès que vous en avez besoin. Nous avons testé les massages dans la villa; ils étaient formidables. Bref un séjour inoubliable
5/5 Short October Break
We visited this beach in June whilst staying on the other side of Souda Bay, and on spotting this house, right on the beach, decided to visit for an anniversary celebration. The beaches and tavernas are excellent and the outside space of the property are absolutely fantastic, whilst inside is compact but has everything you need. Owner/contact on hand if needed otherwise you are left in peace to enjoy your stay at this amazing property. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing beach holiday!
It’s a lovely apartment with everything one needs. Even with a 1 1/2 year old we felt very comfortable and the sandy beach was the best play ground… The couple have been perfect hosts and their restaurant offered delicious food and friendliness all over. We loved it!!!!!!!
What a fantastic place to start our holiday. Amazing location, with views of the ocean from every turn. Really well equipped little house, with comfortable beds and really stylish, totally private garden with soft lawn to lay on, private ocean access and beach shower. Swim to lunch. We are really well at Rokos where Nikos welcomed us every day and looked after us. We landed at Chania at 10am and we’re swimming in the sea by 10.40! But feels like you could be anywhere, it’s so secluded and quiet. Nets on all the windows meant we could sleep with all the windows open at ease with the sea breeze blowing through. Breakfast on the balcony where you can watch the sunrise with uninterrupted views. Just be prepared if you are staying, the mini markets are up the hill in Sternes so don’t forget to stop for supplies before you drive down the mountain. We hired bikes, which was fun, but a bit too hot for family riding. If you’re hard core and can endure the hills, Lion Rentals drop off road bikes to the house for you for around 25 euro a day. A really really special start to our annual trip to Crete. Am booking for next year. Many thanks Alexandra!!
Casa Marathi was a great place to stay and the proximity to the beach and Rokos restaurant was ideal. The house had everything that one could need: the beds were especially comfortable!
Incredible location…we felt so spoiled having the convenience of stepping out of our large covered deck at Casa Marathi into the beautiful calm sea. Hosts were wonderful and own the closest restaurant (Rokos) on the beach. They will also deliver fresh cooked food to your place if requested! The beach bungalow was tastefully decorated and very clean. Several other restaurants within walking distance as well. We didn’t want to leave and would love to come back and stay again.
Absolutely perfect. We’re definitely coming back!
A place to keep secret for the rest of the world if you want to come back.
Great place, the location is fabulous and the house is nice and clean!
Casa Marathi is a wonderful place to stay: The lovely small beach just in front of the house and a huge balcony with an amazing sea few. Inside the house you get everything you need.
Stunning location with the beach on your doorstep and mountain views in the distance. We visited in early May and so the place was very quiet during the week with only one taverna open in the evening. This suited us fine as we enjoyed having the peace and quiet. It was much busier at the weekend. The outdoor space was a lovely place to relax in the evening. The kitchen is, however, very small and so is only really suitable for preparing very simple meals. Alex was a great host and quickly sorted out a minor issue with the internet. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning.
Words cannot fully describe what a wonderful location this home truly is. In marketing as the saying goes, it’s all about “location, location, location.” House was spotless and clean, and Alexandra was without a doubt a SUPERHOST. Chania was within 15-20 minutes drive, coffee shops within 5-10 minute drive. The beach restaurants were only open on the weekend due to time of year we went but was hopping with activity. We look forward to visiting again soon. If your super adventurous than take a drive to Balo Lagoons, about 1hour 45 minute drive.
Excellent experience in Crete. Everything about our stay in this beautiful villa was excellent. The views from the master bedroom were breath-taking from three different glass doors and balconies. The daytime view was of the sea and mountains and the night-time view was of the twinkling lights from across the sea. We also all enjoyed the views from the covered outdoor seating. There was plenty of room for our large party for board games, reading or just listening to music from the provided stereo. In the home, the host provided everything we could possibly desire in amenities or just small touches. The decor of the home was stylish but also functional; and everything was spotlessly clean. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked with plenty of things for use by our large party. There was a choice of outdoor or indoor seating for meals with plenty of room for everyone. The host was very helpful in arranging for transportation (I recommend renting a car) and recommendations for restaurants and day tours. There were no problems with communication and the host was very professional and friendly. The Emerald next door is an excellent place to eat and enjoy the sea view. But I also highly recommend using the services of the cook. Sula is a delightful person and we loved her cooking. She also provided olive oil and honey that she grew and produced herself. The only small problem we had was with the WiFi. There were two routers since it is a large home but we kept having problems with one of them. The host attempted to remedy the problem but we still had trouble.
Very enjoyable stay in Plaka. The house was excellent. We had 13 staying and there was plenty of room. It was well equipped and very comfortable. Highly recommended.
We were a group of 6 couples plus child and enjoyed our days at Villa Salacia to the fullest! The property description and pictures are a 100% accurate. Prior to the trip we got a lot and many useful tips from Alexandra who was always very swift in her replies. The villa’s interior is tastefully combining the old and new and very well equipped! The sundowns over the infinity pool turning everything into the deepest orange and pink will be a memory we won’t forget. The villa is in easy reach from the airport if you have a rental car and similarly practically located to visit many places if you’d like to go on a day-trip. Nevertheless, it definitely invites also to simply spend a day at the pool and in the garden and enjoy the scenic views. We didn’t want to go to a touristy or party area in Crete but instead stay somewhere where it’s more peaceful and relaxed and with Villa Salacia (and beginning of June) we got all we wished for. Thanks for the great stay!
Amazing holiday near Almyrida. The property is perfect for a large group. Fantastic space in the home with no one feeling cramped, tremendous pool and views from bedrooms and outdoor space, close to 2 villages with great restaurants, lots to do within reasonable drive. Everyone was super relaxed…..
Takk for oppholdet. Dette vil vi anbefale. Mvh, Knut Georg
We had a great trip on the boat on Wednesday. Lunch stop was a particular highlight and the food was brilliant! Thank you for arranging.
Takk det står en Champis fra oss på kjøkkenet til deg. Takk god service og tilstedeværelse.
The Villa is really lovely and we were made to feel most welcome. Nothing was too much trouble, if we had any queries or needed any help, it was dealt with immediately and we were provided with useful local information on arrival. The villa is situated right on the edge of the village, which was very convenient when travelling down to the sea front to dine in one of the lovely restaurants overlooking the sea. This coastline is marvellous and it is well worth visiting, and eating, in the places dotted along the coast (by boat/ferry and by car). We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to South Crete.
There is only one thing you need to know: the pictures do not lie. It is just as beautiful and functional as the pictures lead you to expect. And it is a great base from which to explore the southwestern coastal region of Crete. We were busy every day with boat trips (Marmara beach, Gavdos), road trips to the hinterland and other nearby regions (Anatopoli, Sellia, and Plakias). We were two families of four, with kids age 6, 9, 11, and 13. All the kids slept in the same room and it was not a problem. Awesome vacation!
A beautiful house with an amazing view, just like in the photos. Quick drive to Sfakia; 4-5 minute drive to a lovely little local beach w/ almost no one there (which we much preferred to the more popular beaches to the west). Kitchen is very well equipped: we cooked at home almost every night, to enjoy eating on the patio at sunset. Local groceries are limited but so inexpensive; there’s a butcher in Sfakia (right next to the post office)–no sign, and looks like mostly wholesale, but we got meat from him several times (amazing pork chops for grill). Alexandra is a very attentive host, and responded quickly to all our small concerns. Highly recommend!
We really can’t say enough good things about our stay at Villa Thetis. We travelled to Crete with our twin boys (aged 9 months) in May. The villa was as pictured and absolutely beautiful. The space is bigger than it appears in the pictures. The view is amazing and the pool is beautiful. The Villa is in a small village and a very short drive to Chora Sfakion. The Villa is great for a quiet family holiday and those looking for a more authentic Greek experience. This place isn’t for you if you would like to be in the middle of the action. The hosts went above and beyond to make us feel at home. They organised for us to have two high chairs and travel cots. They also arranged for us to have groceries in the house on our arrival. A cleaner came once every three days and went above and beyond what was expected – she even cleaned the small splash pool we bought for our boys. Before leaving the villa one of the neighbours brought us a home-made sfakian pie (a local delicacy) as a send-off. By the end of our stay we felt as though we were part of the village and were sad to leave – we would highly recommend a stay at Villa Thetis!
We liked Sfakia very much.Enjoyed the house facilities and neighbourhood. Loved Sfakia, such amazing beach resorts Walks and Gorges. The house was very comfortable with great balcony around the infinity swimming pool. Amazing view of the Libyan sea. Thanks, we already looking for our next year Villa in Crete.
Det er helt strålende!! Tusen hjertelig takk. Vi har hatt det kjempefint og kosa oss masse her, et helt nydelig sted både ute og inne.
Vi har nå mentalt “landet” og alle er tilbake til sin vanlige rytme etter et nytt, fantastisk opphold på Chloe og Daphne. (Vi «lander» vel egentlig aldri!)
Klem fra Harald
I can’t recommend the Mousiki Villa enough. The space is absolutely beautiful, the communication between the host and myself was easy going and efficient. The house itself is located in a quieter village along the coast, with fewer tourists which I much prefer. We were given some great local restaurants where the food was to die for. The beach is literally a 5 minute walk away from the house but if that’s too far than the pool is lovely and private. All the amenities are there and of a high quality. It’s perfect for a family or a group of couples.
Wonderful Week. The house very clean, big and comfortable. Close to the Beach with good restaurants. Alexandra and her team made our week very nice and easy. The location is good to visit Chania region. Thank you very much, it’s been a pleasure to spend our holidays there.
Soggiorno fantastic. La più bella casa vacanza in cui sia mai stata! Appena ristrutturata, pulitissima, dotata di ogni confort. Posizione comoda in quanto vicino a Chania e di strada per le spiagge più belle di Creta. Alexandra gentilissima e disponibile; ci ha organizzato una gita con il taxi boat, prenotato i gommoni e i ristoranti. Veramente tutto perfetto!
Incredible house with the nicest hosts. We had such a great time, you don’t have to leave the house since it has absolutely everything you need, and a beautiful garden filled with vegetables, melons chillies etc. the area has a lot of restaurant options by the beach.
Home away from home
Staying at this house made us feel so at home. The house is equipped with everything you need and there is so many cosy sofa areas where you can just chill and relax surrounded by the beautiful garden. The house is located close to the beach and with an easy drive to so many great places and restaurants. We had the best week! Thank you <3

Staying at Villa Mousiki has been by far one of my best experiences! It’s like a home away from home. With a beautiful garden, great pool and sun deck, large living spaces, fresh bathrooms, fully equipped house and a view to die for there’s nothing to complain about. You are five minute walk from the nearest beach and if you rent a car you can easily drive to breathtaking beaches and hike trails. We will definitely go back next year!!!
Stylish, spacious and genuine villa in calm area.
Beautiful villa with space for up to 12 people. Amazing garden with a pool, sunbeds, outdoor shower, lots of flowers, fruit trees and a herb garden. Spacious and modern kitchen. There is also an outdoor kitchen. The social areas indoors and outdoors have a really cosy and genuine feeling. Seaview from the second floor, comfortable beds. The area is calm, but even so there are several good restaurants, supermarket, ATM, coffee shop etc. nearby. There is a 450 m walk from the house to the beach. I enjoyed our stay very much and would gladly recommend it!
En utsökt plats med underbar trädgård med pool. Lugnet och harmonin finner man kring huset och i huset. Dock är det inte långt till stranden och restauranger ifall man behöver det. Världsklass i alla avseenden!
En plats i harmoni
Jag kan varmt rekommendera detta boende. De båda husen är smakfullt inredda och välplanerade. Det är nära både till stranden och havet samt till affärer och restauranger och vackra promenadvägar. Trädgården är en oas med doftande apelsinträd och saltvattenspool. Jag kommer definitivt att återvända till denna underbara plats.

Paradise on Earth
This villa is a dream come true. Beautiful, tasteful, relaxing and a wonderful place to spend a holiday. Big enough to allow some privacy, but also plenty of space for socialising and a fabulous kitchen to cook in. The pool is as wonderful as the garden. Nice location in the middle of the small village, but also super close to the sea. A place you want to come back to. Again and again.
Sofia Olssonolsen, Solna, Sweden
A great place to stay in Crete
If you want a maximum experience of your holiday you should rent this fantastic house. The house, or the houses as there´s also a guest house, is worth a trip to Crete. Furthermore, with a location just some hundreds of meters from the sea and at the same time with a view of the Cretan mountains, I can warmly recommend this accommodation. The fact that it´s not particularly far from the airport in Chania also adds an extra value.
Annikan, Akersberga, Sweden
An absolutely fantastic house in a charming village…. Ocean view and just a short walk to the beach… And a saltwater pool in the garden with jet-bubbles if you like. Bathrooms in every room, very comfortable beds. Villa Mousiki has everything. Take a walk in the garden in the morning and pick Fresh grapefruits and oranges and make your own juice… The bus stop is just across the street if You want to visit Beautiful Chania I really recommend this Villa, it’s fantastic….

A luxury villa that feels like home
I can’t recommend the Mousiki Villa enough. The space is absolutely beautiful, the communication between the host and myself was easy going and efficient. The house itself is located in a quieter village along the coast, with fewer tourists which I much prefer. We were given some great local restaurants, where the food was to die for!! The beach is literally a 5 minute walk away from the house but if that’s too far than the pool is amazing and private. All the amenities are there and of a high quality. It’s perfect for a family or a group of couples.
This house is breath taking!
Spent 11 days with my family at this villa and it was absolutely fantastic. The property manager Alexandra was great, easy to communicate with and did everything to make our stay amazing. The villa is beyond words! The views are just amazing, the pool, proximity to town, house amenities. Everything was fabulous. Thank you.
The house is brand new. Furniture quality is very good and you can find everything you need to really enjoy your stay. The view is amazing as well from all bedrooms. Georgios will welcome you and help you for whatever you need. I can strongly suggest this villa if you want to visit that area and fully relax.
Belle propriété neuve avec grande terrasse et superbe vue sur la mer parfaitement équipée et très très Propre. Conforme en tous points à la description et aux photos du site. Accueil très sympathique par Giorgio. Aucun problème.
Mannenweekend. Nice stay!
Great house, lovely host. Extremely comfortable, new and absolutely clean house. The host is very welcoming and lovely. Apart from a large parking ground in the distance there is a very nice sea view from the house. We spent four great days here.
Great accommodation in a lovely location with very hospitable hosts. Thank you.
Amazing getaway on the southern coast of Crete! The house is exactly as pictured, if anything it exceeded expectations in person! We were welcomed with wine and water in the fridge, and given a bottle of local olive oil as a goodbye gift from Stelios! Incredible views of the coast from the balcony, the house is nicely secluded from the actual town centre itself, but only about a 10 minute walk to get to all the restaurants and pier for activities. Make sure you take a private boat for the day from Notos Dive Centre, we had the best day visiting beautiful smaller beaches only accessible by boat, and did some amazing snorkeling! Thank you to Alexandra, Damilus, Joanna and Stelios for all your kind hospitality, we will definitely be back!
Lovely, stylish studio house… located about 10 minutes’ walk outside the town…bit of a steep walk but worth it if you like being away from the hustle and bustle. The house is very comfortable with the great benefit of a beautiful outdoor terrace where you can watch the sun go down over the bay. It was nice to have wine chilling in the fridge when we arrived and a plate of fruit available to us.
The pictures do this place justice, and even then it has something more! It is wonderful. The village is picture perfect, quiet but with a wonderful local community. There are lots of lovely tavernas looking out over the harbour which serve delicious local delicacies, including fresh fish caught locally. The beaches are quiet but active, with wonderful water full of fish for your snorkelling needs. Great local villages and walks too, and the host was brilliant – east contact throughout and so welcoming. The apartment is one of the best we have stayed in. You will love it all!
Lovely stay, enjoyed both the house, the village and the region! The house is exactly as advertised, stylish, clean and well situated a few hundred meters from the village center and the village beaches. Damoulis and Alexandra were both perfect hosts, and took great care of us. A few highlights: Collecting fresh eggs and vegetables for breakfast in the garden every morning. Long brunches in the shade under the lemon tree. Renting a small motor boat from Damoulis’ company, and exploring the coastline in our own. Spending lazy days on the Ilingas and sweet water beaches. (Don’t miss the secret beaches around the corner from Ilingas. Dinner at Anopolis half way up the mountains. Evening runs in the surrounding hills, on donkey trails and country roads. Already looking forward to returning!
Hands down the cleanest we ever stayed at! The place was spotless when we arrived and a nice lady came twice during our stay to refresh the house and change towels and sheets. The house itself is great! A brand new kitchen to cook in, super comfortable bed, a nice balcony to enjoy a drink in the evening and an outdoor area in the shade of a lemon tree to relax in the afternoon. We even had access to fresh eggs and veggies from the garden, which was a treat! The owner Damulis is simply put the nicest guy ever: very helpful, warm and generous! This was a 5 stars stay for us!
Beautiful. This house is modern and comfortable. It is a lovely, winding walk up the hill from the bay. We watched incredible sunsets from the terrace under the lime tree! The home owner gave us fresh melon, tomatoes and eggs from the garden. The whole experience was dreamy!
Outstanding, peaceful, and beautiful home. Views are stunning, pool amazing and our host Nikos and his family were exceptional. Thank you so much for all our treats, local products and advice, especially tavern recommendations and help sourcing fresh fish! We really enjoyed our week and would definitely return Thank you
Amazing place, brand new with hosts that go above and beyond with local suggestions and a personal touch! Our entire family loved it! Tons of space as we were only 5!
This was the best house ever! Our holiday was completely perfect thanks to the stunning apartment and Nikos our incredible host who was so kind and gave us lots of tips and help with our activities around the island. He also bought us some wonderful local produce and helped us with any problems. The villa was truly a 5 star experience, perfect cool and clean bedrooms with the most comfortable beds in the world! A big highlight was the white robes provided to wear when round the pool! The pool itself was sensational with stunning views especially at sunset. There was lovely beaches nearby and our boat trip that Nikos recommended led us to some absolute paradise spots. The local food was so delicious and the people so friendly. I really couldn’t fault this place, it truly provided the setting for the best holiday ever.
Above our expectations! The villa was sparkling clean. There are 3 private rooms in the villa. We where 3 couples and each had a private bathroom, Well equipped kitchen, and an amazing pool with amazing view. The location is great. The owners of the place was super nice! We will come back again!
Villa Olvia was the most beautiful villa that we could possibly have imagined. It is in a gorgeous, quiet part of South Crete but has everything you could need in the villa or at nearby shops. The Villa was more beautiful than even the gorgeous local beaches. The hosts were fantastic, kept the place immaculate, had everything you could possibly need. We received gifts of local olive oil, raki and home made goodies from the family. We will definitely be going back! Thank you to Villa Olvia for looking after us so well!
Family holiday to celebrate 2 big birthdays. Wonderful villa with views to match. Fully lived up to expectations with Alexandra and Vera always on hand. Close to centre of Plaka with many taverns to enjoy. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a holiday there.
Dette var en kjempebra ferie. Alle er fornøyde her. Jeg tar kontakt for neste ferie. Hilsen Geir & Co.
Hei! Da er vi hjemme igjen i Norge. Oppholdet på Kreta har vært flott. Takk for en godt organisert dag i går. Flott sted og restaurant. Vi har svømt i grotter, dykket og kost oss. God sommer.
Heiz Da drar vi til flyplassen og vil få takke for oss. Deilig sted og hus. Takk for meget god service og hjelp. Mvh Kristin og Bernt
localisation with amazing views. Great swimming pool and terace with outside kitchen. And very helpfull owner. We had wonderful time in Villa Melodie.
Hei du. Vi har hatt det aldeles strålende, helt perfekt opphold. Vi falt veldig for den lille stranden ved restauranten Tsunami i almyrida. Der lå vi veldig “alene” og kunne spise lunsj mens ungene badet. Veldig intimt og koselig. Kalyves var også veldig fint. Frister til gjentakelse! Kanskje vi skal se på hva du kan tilby allerede rundt juletider. God sommer til deg også. Simon
One week in Hora Sfakion. I was in Hora Sfakion with my family (2 children aged 10 and 12) for about a week. We had a great time. As far as the house is concerned, pictures are realistic and it has an amazing view. We were welcomed and checked in by Stelios who gave us lots of interesting and useful suggestion…how/where to rent a boat, trips to do, restaurants etc.. Top quality service.
Chora Sfakion. Séjour très agréable dans une maison confortable et très jolie.
The house is really charming, very warm welcome with a lot of friendly and helpful tips on what to do in the area. Great place to hang out during the evenings and enjoy the stars. Overall we really enjoyed our week in this authentic house and in the area.
This is a truly stunning property, beautifully maintained in an incredible location. I really don’t have enough superlatives to describe it. Alexandra looked after us brilliantly and we really have no complaints. I can’t recommend this highly enough.
Un séjour dans un décor de rêves, encore plus beau que sur les photos!!! La maison a été pensée de manière très ingénieuse, une vue à couper le souffle de chaque pièce: mer oliviers, fleurs, piscine, patio de repos et lecture. La villa domine sur la baie, les couleurs sont superbes à chaque instant de la journée et surtout au coucher de soleil. Très calme aussi. Une décoration tres sympathique et des prestations de très grande qualité. Je recommande vivement cette villa!!!
A great holiday. The house is lovely, really provides a homey feeling, and the view is spectacular. It also provides great privacy. The area is great, lots of amenities close by. We had 1 or 2 issues during our stay but the service provided by Alexandra and her team was amazing: quick answers and solutions at any time of the day. 100% recommended.
Dette er en nydelig eiendom som passer svært godt til to familier som reiser sammen, eller familier som reiser med flere generasjoner. Vi har vært i villaen fire ganger med tre generasjoner og opplevd at det er god plass til cirka ti mennesker. Huset holder høy komfort og har en herlig stor stue med åpen kjøkkenløsning og utgang til veranda og hage. Hagen er lett å trives i med busker, sitrontrær, blomster og det herlige bassenget. Soverom og senger holder høy standard. Huset er hyggelig, komfortabelt og praktisk. Det har for oss blitt stedet der vi virkelig finner feriefølelsen når vi reiser mange barn og voksne sammen. Det er et godt kjøkken å lage mat i, og det er også enkelt å bestille mat hjem fra gode restauranter i nærmiljøet. Det er cirka en kilometer til nydelig strand som vi benyttet de få dagene vi forlot villaens oase. Kun ti minutter med bil til romantiske Chania er selvsagt også et pluss. Oppfølgingen vi har fått av utleier har vært eksepsjonelt bra og vi har alltid fått svar på spørsmål og hjelp når vi har etterspurt det. Vi kan anbefale villaen på det aller varmeste, særlig til grupper på mellom seks og tolv i ulike aldre.
Perfection! Everything you need to relax and enjoy the wonders of Crete.
Luxurious, well appointed, beautifully designed and decorated, in a quaint setting surrounded by water, mountains, and restaurants. I can’t think of a single complaint, the property has it all, every amenity you could ask for, and Christina is there to help with anything you need. We could have spent our entire time just lounging on the rooftop in the cabana listening to the waves, there is no better spot anywhere nearby as far as we could tell! Everything was as described or better, and from beginning to end the process was easy and we just cannot wait to come back! If you are looking to get away and visit this amazing island, definitely take a look at this villa, you will love it! Leave some dates open for us though!! Thank you for such a memorable trip!
Jason, Sept. 2018
Had an amazing stay, would definitely come back. Great house and great location for a relaxing vacation. Takk for god service!
Absolutely great place by the beach. Waking up to the sound of waves and staying in an awesome house in a small village was the perfect choice for us. Having a car made everything practical. We explored the beautiful beaches and the city of Chania very easily. The house (actually it truly feels like a home) has everything you’ll need. The infinity pool and the cabana on the roof was very chill and a great hangout for our family. A big thank you to you, Alexander, Christina, Antonia and George. We felt well taken care of. Any small questions and the team took care of it. We feel relaxed and enjoyed the stay a lot. Ten thousand percent better than staying at a luxurious hotel. Having a car made everything very practical as well. I would recommend that to other guests. We made trips to Falassarna and Chania very easily. Liked the small town feeling of Kolymbari as well. The one thing that was a bit hard was to find good places for breakfast.
Spectacular roof terrace and pool. Fabulous location.
The location of this villa is outstanding, right on the sea front with an amazing roof top infinity pool that makes the most of the open sea view behind it. Everyone involved in this villa thought about every little detail to make guests holidays the best they can be. It’s the little details that can make all the difference and they had everything covered. The pool was heated to 25c, there was wifi on every floor, a smart tv, plenty of towels, regular maid cleaning, a welcome basket, a portable Bluetooth speaker to take anywhere in the villa, 2 bikes to ride around the island, electric shutters on every window for security and light blocking, a safe, plenty of hot water for everyone to have a shower and more and more. There was about 30 drawers under the TV, that contained anything extra you might need. Alexandra met us on the first day to check we were settled in OK and helped us with her knowledge of the area. Amazing hosts and villa, thank you for our fantastic holiday. Would HIGHLY recommend.
Nybyggd fräsch villa med mycket smakfull inredning. Takterrassen är fantastisk med härlig utsikt, trevliga möbler och en fin infinitypool -med riktigt varmt och härligt vatten. Sovrummen med stora förvaringsskåp och badrummen är till full belåtenhet. Köket med tillhörande allrum jättefint och i anslutning ytterligare terrass med bra gasolgrill. Vi hade fantastisk service för alla våra behov. Rekommenderar varmt Villans kock som lagade fantastisk mat och med rejäla portioner. Värdinnan Alexandra med support av Christina och Georgio ska ha en stor eloge att de gjorde denna veckan till en oförglömlig upplevelse.
Spent 11 days with my family at this villa and it was absolutely fantastic. The property manager, Alexandra, was great, easy to communicate with and did everything to make our stay amazing. The villa is beyond words! The views are just amazing, the pool, proximity to town, house amenities. Everything was fabulous. Thank you.
Ang opphold på Villa Salacia, august 2018
Tusen takk for et fantastisk opphold i «Villa Salacia»! Vi hadde en herlig uke og fylte villaen med nær familie i forbindelse med bryllupsfeiring. Reisefølget besto av familie fra 14 måneder til 82 år.
Bilder og beskrivelse gir et riktig bilde av villaen. Den har meget høy standard utvendig og innvendig. Uteområdene og bassengfasiliteter fremheves spesielt! Vi hadde avtalt transport fra Chania flyplass med drosjer samt leiebil som vi hadde disponibel hele oppholdet. Vi hadde også avtalt innkjøp av matvarer, og vi kunne derfor innta villaen uten tanke på andre ting enn å nyte i fulle drag. Alle forhåndsavtaler fungerte prikkfritt Kvelden etter ankomst hadde vi bestilt «Chef services». Tre veldig hyggelige og dyktige kokker gjorde kvelden til ett av høydepunktene under oppholdet. Vi foretok også en tur til sørkysten anbefalt av Alexandra. Å bade i grottene i Marmara var en spesiell opplevelse, og vi spiste en nydelig lunch samme sted. Det fantes flere tavernaer i gangavstand fra villaen, men vi laget også mat «hjemme». Kjøkkenet fungerte utmerket, og innkjøp ble foretatt både i Plaka eller på et større supermarked 20 minutters kjøretid unna. Hele turfølget var enige om at dette var en uforglemmelig uke. Vi kommer mer enn gjerne tilbake!
A Beautiful villa in A Beautiful area .
Villa Elpida suited us like a glove. The pool, the pergola, the outdoor seating area, and the huge table we used for breakfast.
Inside the house: a fully equipped kitchen, living room and dining area for cooler hours. And the peak for us was the five bedrooms with the attached toilet / shower. George (the landlord) was in contact with us throughout the time we stayed at the villa, recommendations about restaurants in the area, information about the beaches and sailing options. So thanks. And thanks to Alexandra that before we arrived had already shared with us recommendations about the various possibilities in the area, and during our stay was in touch with us, for all the information we asked for.

This year was our fourth year visiting Crete and our 4th year of going via Alexandra to help us find the right house for a large group of adults and children. We have rented two really lovely properties through Alexandra, Villa Zoe in Plaka and Villa Daphne in Loutraki, and both offered a very high level of comfort and service. Her attention to detail and the touches she brings to the properties helps makes our stay extremely comfortable. We have become friends and we completely trust her and would not hesitate to recommend her services.
The photographs and description of this villa do not do it justice. It exceeded all expectations the house is amazing and the gardens and grounds are incredibly beautiful. Everything you need is there and has the ingredients for a perfect holiday We were met by Dimitri who is the owner of the villa who checked us in and showed us around. He was a perfect gentleman. The place is cleaned regularly and the cleaning team are a delight. All and any questions we had for the host Alexandra were dealt with in a prompt and friendly manner We can’t say enough good things about our holiday at villa Chloe. Thank you so much for all your help, assistance and guidance.
Dear Alexandra, It was a pleasure to stay in your apartment in Marathi! Beautiful view, meticulous clean house, which means a lot to me to feel comfortable! Chrysa is very kind and friendly host. I appreciate a lot that you passed by at our place, even though was terribly raining that day! We had lovely chat together. All together we had beautiful summertime in Crete / Marathi. What a great location! Very friendly host; Chrysa and Yannis are warm and kind people. We had a one very hard rainy day, which made wifi modus broke, but Yannis fixed that immediately next day! The apartment is very clean, I think is one of the best cleaned house I “saw”on trips. House is very light and the view is stunning! See you again some other summer! Lot’s of warm greetings from Amsterdam and see you again on other time in Crete!
The pictures for Unit 1 are 100 % accurate. The place it’s appropriate for a family of four. The beach its only 5 steps down from your outdoor seating area which it’s a rare find specially with the amenities provided at this location. The outdoor seating area it’s a great place to have your meals after a long day at the beach; however, there several restaurants within walking distance if you prefer to eat out. (I liked Roko’s as they had great tasting food and reasonable prices). There is a mini market which is open seven days within 15 driving minutes from the Studio where you can get just about anything you need. Additionally, there are many beaches around this area if you want to explore more than one beach like we did and old town Chania its only 27 driving minutes away. The best part its the tranquility that this property offers, If you want to have some relaxing time with a beach front view, then this property perfect for you. Thanks Alexandra and Chrysa for your hospitality. My family and I had a fantastic experience. Chrysa and Gianni were also very attentive and the food at Roko’s was out of this world in taste.
Amazing place! Nice owners! We will come back.
We have travelled a lot as a family and this was, without doubt, one of the loveliest holiday properties we’ve ever rented. The flat itself is beautifully done and part of a house that is actually on the beach (the only house on the beach). To have your morning coffee and then step into the clear azure sea. It’s a stunning situation and unusually protected from developers. And the family who own the house are a delight. They run the taverna on the beach and serve fish they catch every day. A real haven. And wonderful value for what it is. Don’t tell everyone! A wonderful property with the most delightful owners who embraced us like family! Such a special place we almost don’t want to tell other people about it! But, of course, we will…The setting is hard to beat.
Εξαιρετικό από όλες τις απόψεις! Η τοποθεσια βέβαια είναι το δυνατο σημείο του καταλύματος διότι είναι σπάνιο ένα τόσο ωραίο σπίτι να είναι τόσο κοντά στη θάλασσα όπως αυτό! Γενικά παρα πολύ ευχαριστημένος από όλα!
We had a fantastic holiday in the beach cottage. It is a wonderful place to stay, the local people are are amazing, nothing is too much trouble . We have already rebooked and can’t wait to go back. 10/10.
What Else?!? Cette villa est juste incroyable. L’emplacement est idéal, à l’écart des bars de plage et en contact avec la nature. Elle est très bien équipée. … ça va être compliqué de trouver aussi bien pour nos prochaines vacances. Alexandra a été à notre disposition dès que nous avions besoin d’elle : questions sur la maison, conseil pour les visites, organisation de sorties…elle s’est même chargée de prendre un rendez-vous chez le médecin pour nous. Alexandra fourni un niveau de service digne des conciergeries dès meilleurs hôtels. Thank a lot for your kindness. Your reactivity was very helpful. I hope we could plan another vacation to your Villas soon. Seen the reaction of our friends when they saw photos on Facebook, I’m sure that some of them will try to rent Peninsula in coming years.
We stayed for one week in this beautiful house. The location couldn’t be more stunning. It was very private and a fantastic view in all directions. The interior design was beautiful. Close to restaurants and beaches, as well as hiking. If we ever go back to Crete we definitely would like to go back to this house. Felt like home.
Karianne and Kenneth
This Villa is truly beautiful and architecturally stunning. The views from the pool area and equally inside the living and kitchen areas are breathtaking. From the interior one could easily be on the top deck of a cruise ship as the view to the sea is all around you. The house is excellently appointed with every possible amenity for a completely luxurious, private, quiet, spacious and comfortable holiday. The decor is beautifully modern and bright. The photos are not deceiving. Plaka and Almyrida are such friendly, uncommercial resorts and offer everything a group of friends or family could wish for. Local shopping and restaurants in Plaka are 5 minutes by car. The maintenance by Carina is second to none and she helped us with everything from restaurant advice to an abundance of clean linen. To conclude, a lot of thought has gone into this house and we wouldn’t hesitate to come back. Highly recommended 5 Stars! Many thanks to Carina and her efficiency and help in all matters. We will hopefully be back. It was fab. Many thanks.
The house it’s simply gorgeous. The view, the design, the cleaning and the host are great!!! Everything it’s exactly as you can see in the pictures and even more … Despina and Damulis are great, they help us with everything. We’ll definitely come back again! It has been a pleasure to spend our holidays in Sfakia. Thanks for everything
We loved our stay in this property which is exactly as described and seen in the photos. Damoulis and Despina were fantastic hosts who gave us access to their veggie garden and fresh farm eggs. This was the perfect base for exploring nearby beaches including our favorite ‘Glyka nera’ and Loutro is also worth a visit. We recommend Imbros gorge an easy 8km hike, Despina’s coffee and Samaria tavern where the chef Christos dishes out delicious food. Be careful where you park in the centre and the port because you can get a parking fine. Alexandra we loved our stay and appreciate the gift of wine and fruit on arrival.
Thanks again Dimitra
The house is absolutely lovely, perfect for a couple. The decor doesn’t disappoint – very stylish and well appointed. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. The area is perfect for hikers and there are also fantastic beaches and restaurants – we hope to be back some time! We loved the house and had a great time – thank you!
Wir haben in Damulis Haus eine sehr schöne Ferienwoche verbracht. Sehr freundlicher Empfang, tolle Lage mit superschönen Blick. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder. Liebe Alexandra, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt in Damulis’ Haus. Geschmackvolle Ausstattung, herrliche Lage, traumhafte Aussicht, freundlicher Empfang… alles sehr gut
We had a great stay and loved the amazing view from the balcony!
We enjoyed our holidays a lot! It was really beautiful!!!
We really enjoyed our stay in this gorgeous, beautifully kept house and Chora Sfakion was a great place for a relaxed holiday by the sea. Beaches were not crowded in comparison to some of the other places we stayed and we kayaked to totally empty beaches. Tavernas were great – the freshest fish we ate. The owners of the property were lovely – and made sure we were Ok with everything – they couldn’t have been more helpful. They own the dive centre and if you like diving or want to hire a boat – this is a great place to do this. They even allowed us to take vegetables and eggs from the garden – it was total relaxation and idyllic for us. We hope very much to return.
Super sauber und modern eingerichtetes Ferienobjekt. Damulis und Desbina sind sehr nette und bemühte Eigentümer, Damulis gibt gerne Auskunft über Aktivitäten und besitzt einen Bootsverleih und Tauchtrips bietet er auch noch an. Wir haben (Meine Frau und ich) den Aufenthalt in diesem schönen Studio sehr genossen, Chora Sfakion und Umgebung ist sehr zu empfehlen wenn man gerne wandert und unternehmungslustig ist.Es gibt viele Möglichkeiten zum Essen (sehr gut und Preise sind ok) die Leute sind sehr freundlich, alles super!!! Kommen wieder!!!
We stayed here for ten days at the end of July and the property surpassed our expectations. Its in a great location. A short walk by the sea takes you to Almyrida with its sandy beaches and shallow waters that are great for kids. We spent many a happy hour sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling. Restaurants line the beach and provide a good choice of food and snacks. Shops and mini markets and a fab bakery are all nearby. Watersports and diving are all well catered for. We hired a pedalo for a few hours and had a great time. The accommodation is good quality and well equipped with everything you need for your stay. The views over Souda Bay from the patio and first floor balcony are second to none!! To the rear a balcony overlooks the lovely pool where there is ample space for sun worshipping. The pool is a great size and shared by only a few other properties so its almost like having your own. The property is well managed and was cleaned mid way through our stay – thank you Vera. We were greeted by our host Alex who made us feel very welcome during our stay – thank you Alex. Almyrida was just right for us. An old fishing village – not over commercialised or too touristy – only about 40 mins from Chania airport and just off the national road. We hired a car and went to Georgioupolis, Chania, Rethymno and over the mountains to Choro Station – visiting a quirky war museum along the way. That said you don’t need a car here – everything is close by should you just want to chill out in Almyrida. Taxis aren’t expensive though should you want to go futher afield. I have recommended this place to my family and friends and would love to go back again soon – what better recommendation can I give that that!!!
Nous avons passé une superbe semaine dans cette location. L’appartement est clair, spacieux, très agréable, comme neuf et bien équipé. Il était très propre (plus le ménage fait une fois dans la semaine). Accueil adorable à notre arrivée et coup de fil d’Alexandra en début de séjour, très réactive si vous avez besoin. Vue magnifique depuis la terrasse d’une chambre et la terrasse principale. Nous avons été bercés par le clapotis des vagues la nuit et le chant des cigales le jour au bord de la piscine. La plage est a 5 min a pied et Almyrida un bon point d’ancrage pour visiter la région de La Canée. Nous recommandons sans réserve. Dear Alexandra. We were really happy about our stay: Vera was very nice upon our arrival, it was great to receive your call at the beginning of our stay and your flexibility for our departure highly appreciated. The flat is greatly located with, of course this amazing view. A place we would like to come back to…
Thanks again. Lydie
Thank you for your hospitality. We enjoyed your nice villa, the beautiful view and the great pool. The villa is very nicely renovated. All the best, Arnaud and Emmanuelle
We really enjoyed our stay at Zoe. Everything worked out perfect, and the hospitality was outstanding. The massage was wonderful and we would indeed recommend both Villa Zoe as well as Alexandra as the perfect host. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Kind regards Susanne and family
Everything’s perfect in this villa that makes you feel like at home! The outside space is great with an amazing view. Alexandra is very kindly and available easily We highly recommend this villa.
We have spend a great time in Tholos Villa. The vue is incredible! And the villa have all you need for your holidays in paradise.
We stayed in four people at Villa Tholos. The villa is very beautiful and very spacious with a beautiful view of the sea. Very nice and fresh garden with sunbeds and sofas. Beautiful outdoor table for outdoor dining, sheltered from the wind. The very spacious kitchen with everything you need. Very comfortable and fresh rooms with very comfortable mattresses. Truly a luxury accommodation. The owners are very available for any problem. Excellent tips for boat trips from Chora Sfakion We’ll be back soon… !!
Villa Thetis was so much more than we had hoped for. The setting was absolutely stunning and I could not get enough of the view. The villa itself was beautiful and very tastefully decorated in a simple style and extremely well equipped. Despina was fantastic and went over and above the call of duty to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The villa was exceptionally clean and the mid week refresh was a treat. The location of the villa makes it possible to walk into the village although it is a bit of an uphill walk back but there are taxis. The village is lovely and provides all you need for either eating out in one of the many tavernas along the sea front or the supermarkets, bakery and butcher. We prepared some delicious suppers in the villa and with a setting like that you do not need to go far. We did visit several beaches and enjoyed swimming in the beautiful clear waters. We hired a boat from Notos Mare which was a great success. As we had to take our son back to the airport we spent a day in Rethymnon which was a lovely place to visit. The vast majority of our holiday was spent around the pool enjoying the surroundings. Would thoroughly recommend. Alexandra, Thank you so much for being a great host.
Many thanks Emma
Villa Olvia is fabulous. The view and the pool made us feel like we had our own little peaceful spot in Crete, with an unobstructed view of the sea. The house is located in a quieter region so you get a feel for life away from tourists. Everything is modern, stylish, clean and very well equipped. There is a lovely balance of indoor and outdoor space. Konstantina and Nikos were amazing hosts, very attentive and helpful with local recommendations. Highly recommend this property.
Fantastic property, great views. Well looked after.
Great villa and great vacation. We enjoyed the place that was accurately described at the site. Alexandra was wonderful with a lot of willingness to help and share tips for the area, places and nice things to do. We will be happy to come again. We enjoyed our stay at the villa very much. Thank you for your warm hospitality, the willingness to help making our vacation enjoyable. We will happily recommend the place to our friends
Vi hadde et fantastisk opphold på Kreta, du er allerede anbefalt til venner og bekjente.
Alt er så fint her, blir ikke bedre, er frelst over stedet og Hellas.
Helt perfekt!!!! Alle er MEGET fornøyde. Vi var veldig fornøyd med oppholdet og ønsker oss tilbake neste år.
Tusen takk for oss! Dette har vært intet mindre enn fantastisk: du/Almyra har så til de grader innfridd, og vel så det!! En fantastisk villa, så utrolig gjennomført stilmessig pluss alle fasiliteter, beliggenheten og gjestfriheten fra Dimitri med sine daglige besøk/hyggelige overraskelser (du må hilse og overbringe fra oss). Dette frister uten tvil til gjentakelse, nå skal vi nyte innspurten til fulle! Fortsatt fin sommer til deg!
Randi & co
THE best villa, in the very best location on the island… beautiful rock ledges to sun bake and swim off into one of the best bays we saw! THE best host who went out of her way to help us time and time again… and I can’t say enough about the owner , who brought us wonderful local treats on many occasions.. thank you both. Best host, best owner, best little cation on the island
Vi nyter noen fantastiske dager her, vi er superfornøyd igjen!
Everything perfect! Thank you Alexandra. The trip was great!
The pictures on the post for the property don’t do it justice. The views are breathtaking 360 degrees of the whole bay. Sunsets are to die for. Plenty of room with good size bedrooms 3 up stairs and a master down stairs with a bed and sofa bed perfect for families. Kitchen is well stocked and you will have everything you need to cook at home in comfort. Swimming pool is amazing the beach is 10 min drive. Highly recommend this property.Great stay can’t wait to return again.
Wow! What a fantastic house by the sea! We spent a week in July in this enjoyable and spacious villa. Everything exceeded our expectations. The house was well equipped, clean with all facilities you need and the view is just amazing! All communication with Alexandra and Carina worked out smoothly and always with a friendly and helpful tone. We are really happy that we found this pearl and will recommend this house to all our family and friends. Hej! Tusen tack för ett fantastiskt boende. Huset var över all förväntan och mycket välutrustat. Toppen att du alltid fanns tillgänglig, även Carina gjorde ett strålande jobb!
We had an amazing time in the beautiful villa in Plaka. We were two families staying there for a week. 4 adults and 6 kids. The view from the house is breathtaking and the infinite pool is stunning. The house was clean and in perfekt order when we arrived. Alexandra and Carina (who takes care of the cleaning and service) was there to welcome us showed us how everything worked and explained the few house rules. It is a 30 minutes walk to get to Plaka center where you can find a good selection of restaurants and two mini markets where you can by water, fruit, food and wine. We are very happy and satisfied with our visit and can highly recommend to book this place for a comfortable vacation.
Sommeren 2017 leide vi dette strandhuset som bokstavelig talt ligger et steinkast fra stranden. Morgenbad er obligatorisk: Rett fra sengen, 40 meter unna, ligger en liten, privat og langgrunn strand. Området er stille og fredelig, langt borte fra neonlys og bråk, og med hage på 4 mål får du den freden og roen du trenger. Deilige uteplasser rundt hele huset gir deg sol helt til solnedgang, eller skygge når du trenger dét.
Almyra anbefales hvis du vil ha en ferie utenom det vanlige, og hvis service er viktig for deg. Almyra/ Alexandra vil garantert gi deg en ferieopplevelse utenom det vanlige, du kommer til å lengte tilbake.
Det har varit jättefint. Vi är supernöjda. Bassengen är otroligt skönt.
All was great. Fantastic supp and hospitality.
Takk for et fint opphold i Villa Celestine. Vi har kost oss her og hatt noen fine dager.
We have enjoyed our stay here in Crete so much. We are all in love with the villa so much that we do not want to go home. Our stay has been so amazing and we have you thank for renting us the villa. We would also like to say a special thank you to the Wonderful Christina who has been very helpful and lovely. Her mum who has been doing all the cleaning and Christina’s brother and friend for their ride from and to the airport and also checking in with us just to make sure we were OK. The location of the villa couldn’t have been any better. It was so refreshing waking up in the morning and all we heard was the sea. I can not praise the villa enough. It was so clean and very fresh.
And the finishing touches were out of this world. Especially the beds and the pillows . you would be able to tell me where you go those from hahahaha. As per the telephone conversation upon our arrival here, the pictures did not lie, in fact in my opinion i do not think the pictures do the villa enough justice. You have to actually be here to appreciate its beauty. Everyone has had a wonderful stay and all send their thanks. It’s a shame that we will not be able to personally meet, but it is a small world. You never know, one day that might be possible. And plus, there is always next year or the year after that. We might need another villa.
This is a fantastic villa in an exceptional location, the views out over the sea were truly amazing. The town of Kolymbari is a great place to stay, the town is busy enough to have a good atmosphere especially along the sea front at night however it is not so overwhelmingly busy that you cannot relax. Once you are done exploring the town and beach you can easily catch a day trip into Chania or a boat trip along the coast to sone truly stunning secluded locations. The villa itself is finished to a very high standard throughout with everything having been thought of and provided. The pool area is truly the ‘pièce de résistance’, from the infinity pool you can see nothing but sea, and the sun loungers are not only extremely comfortable but also in a sun trap. And the when the heat of the day becomes to much you can retire to the cabana with its massive sun bed which easily seats 6. Overall this was easily one of the most relaxing stays I have had in recent years!
God morgen. Vi har hatt et fantastisk opphold. Vi er veldig fornøyd med både huset og omgivelsene. Ettermiddagene på takterrassen var spektakulære. Seilturen var en høydare og det samme med middag i huset inkludert mavedans. Din service må også nevnes – førsteklasses. Vi kommer gjerne igjen og gir våre beste anbefalinger videre.
Vi har hatt et flott opphold. Vi har kost oss masse i leiligheten og på Kreta. Takk for god oppfølging på denne turen også.
Hilsen Ann Kristin
Vi hadde det strålende og barna vil allerede tilbake. Takk til deg.
Heisann! Fantastiske uker her på Kreta . . Som alltid når du står for regien . . Tuuusen takk for oss for denne gang.
Great location and very relaxing. excellent standard of accommodation. Fantastic holiday and amazing host. Could not have done more to make our stay so relaxing.
Absolutely loved the villa, very clean, comfortable all delivered by our friendly local contact Vera. Beautiful sea views, quiet and close to the village 5-10 minutes walk which with kids, we were glad to have a car as there are some slight hills to/from Almyrida. Alexandra was very helpful through the whole booking process. She sent us a very thorough email with car hire, restaurant recommendations and any contact details for doctors, dentists etc. prior to arrival and came to meet us one day for a download on the area. Would highly recommend Alexandra, her villa and Almyrida. Thanks again Alexandra for having us. We couldnt have wished for a better villa or place. Loved the area so much. sure we will be back next year.
Best regards Jane
Hello. We had a lovely time. It was perfect. Thanks for being such a great hostess.
Family of four stayed here for 11 nights. Alexandra was so easy to communicate with and so nice. If she organizes a tour to Mamara do not hesitate–go! The place is as described, photos are accurate, and Almyrida is a great place to swim and chill out. The view from the terrace is superb. One night we ate dinner on the terrace and had the sunset to the west and the full moon rise at the same time to the east. The pool is so nice. You could get away without a car if a short stay, but we hired one after a few days to see a few sights. The only really bad thing was that we had to leave eventually. Thanks Alexandra! We loved our stay, and you are an awesome host.
A beautiful apartment, very stylishly decorated, modern and well equipped. It was spotlessly clean and Alexandra was really helpful, providing us with lots of information and organising car hire for us. Fantastic sea views and walking distance to Almyrida beach, restaurants, the nearby beach is so fantastic for kids – sandy, shallow water and gently sloping. Almyrida is a great small, unspoilt resort with plenty of restaurants, a few shops and a beautiful beach with sun beds, beach bars etc. We much preferred Almyrida to nearby Kalyves. Up the hill is the village of Plaka which has a few restaurants and a small supermarket. We would definitely return! Thank you for a lovely stay and all the information you provided as well as help with hiring a car. We had a great stay and really enjoyed ourselves, Almyrida is a beautiful spot and the apartment was very stylish and spotlessly clean. Fantastic sea views too!
You will get exactly what you see on the pictures and a formidable service from Alexandra and her Staff. Here are for me the strenghts of this apartment/location: -Spacious, in very good state and well furnished – 3 terraces with superb view on the sea and the swimming pool -Nice, clean and warm Swimming pool shared with five others apartments but most of the times we had it for us alone . -Very calm neighbourhood and close to the beach -Very warm welcome in the late evening with as cherry on the cake the delivery of the dinner and of the breakfast for the next morning. -Exemplary cleaneliness with the housekeeping done every 3 days -Almyrida is small seaside resort with a beautiful beach and a lot nice restaurants along the beach. Not too crowded, for me the ideal location for the couples and the families. You got it for me it’s a five star.
The 28th of August we left Chora Sfakion with a lot of sadness. We’ve spent such a beautiful holidays we are going to remember for a long time! The house is really beautiful, airy, full of light and big openspace, well furnished, simply lovely. The housekeeping is very professional. Sheets and towels are new, fresh and proper. Perfect air conditioning, washing machine, dishwasher, kettle, oven, microwave… nothing missing! We loved the beautiful terrace, where we were used to eat, take the sun and read under the old lemon tree; we loved particularly the backyards, too, with hens that I love and with fresh vegetables to be picked and cooked in the perfectly equipped kitchen. The wifi satisfied our 2 adolescents. It seems to be in a 5 stars hotel! Don’t loose to have a boat trip with Damulis: a beautiful gentleman, the Poseidon of Chora Skakion! Sofia, the delicious “Octopus” of Notos Mare Marine Adventures at the port, will organize everything with him. With Damulis we visited Gavdos island and there we left our heart. Thank you Alexandra! It seems to be in a 5 stars hotel! Thank you very much for everything, and see you again, in Chora Sfakion or maybe in Bergamo!
Un grande abbraccio da Valentina, Giovanni, Gaia e Gualtiero.
This little converted stone house in Chora Sfakion is impeccably decorated, immaculate, appointed with everything you might need (pots/pans, electric kettle, juicer, little toiletries) as well as all the add-ons you that make a stay extra special (candles, comfortable and well-decorated indoor/outdoor space, air conditioning, beautiful coffee table books about Crete, wine, fresh mountain greens, melons, lemons, eggs available from the garden!) Damulis, the host, is a laid back guy with great energy (he felt akin to some of our friends in Southern California!) One morning I awoke to the sound of so many bells and headed out to see what the clatter was – so many goats just meandering by! It was an ethereal experience! During our stay we rented a boat from Notos Mare and had a wonderful experience working with Sofia. We headed to the beaches only accessible by boat (Ag. Roumeli, Glyka Nera, Marmara) and had delicious Octopus by the sea at the tavern in Marmara. We hiked Aradena Gorge from top to bottom which was an easy downhill hike that took us about 3hrs – gorgeous and quiet! Overall our experience in Chora Sfakion was beautiful – our only gripe is that we didn’t stay longer! Our stay was absolutely wonderful – the best end to an stunning honeymoon. Chora Sfakion is a special place and I absolutely loved the accommodation. Thank you Alexandra and Damulis for everything!
Notos Well was a wonderful place to stay. Alexandra was truly worthy of her special host status! We loved the stylish interior, the rustic garden, the breathtaking views and the sound of the goat bells on the nearby mountainside. The short walk back from the harbour was just enough to work off some of the delicious food we enjoyed at many of the local tavernas! Visiting Despina’s cafe for cake is a must – she bakes through the night to create scrumptious (& extremely generous sized) puddings! Chora Sfakion is an undiscovered gem and we recommend a visit, especially staying in such a beautiful house. A truly positive experience! We had the most perfect stay at Notos Well. We loved the house and its location overlooking the bay. It was a real bonus meeting you Alex – you were so welcoming and such a generous host. Our day swimming through the caves, laughing and eating delicious lamb and home baked bread with you in Marmara (not to mention those amazing WCs!!) was truly unforgettable. Thank you so much for everything you and Damulis did for us- you’re a great team!
Philip & Catherine
Beautiful house in Sfakia. Modern interior and a stunning view. The yard/garden with shadow under the lemontree was excellent. Hora Sfakia is a quite small town with a beautiful harbour and nice restaurants. Alexandra and Damulis arranged a sailing trip to the Marmara Beach – we had a very lovely lunch there, and the sea has the most beautiful turquoise colour.
Kære Alexandra. Tak for leje af dit hus i Sfakia. Vi har haft en dejlig uge, og vi vil huske tilbage på udflugten til Marmaras smukke strand. Tak for din søde og gæstfrie måde at være på. Damulis var også sød, rar og hjælpsom. Mange hilsner fra os alle fem.
Lucy La maison est aler. Conforme en tout point à la description et plus encore: la terrasse, le potager et ses délicieux melons et même les œufs des poules! La location est extrêmement bien entretenue, très aler, très spacieuse, très bien équipée ( cuisine, ale de bain, etc). Linge de maison, savon, shampooing, petit cadeau d’accueil… De la terrasse et de la Maison, vue splendide sur toute la baie de Sfakia, coucher de soleil compris. La maison est située en haut du village, ce qui oblige à une petite grimpette (10m max à pied) depuis La plage et le village, sans difficulté même sous le soleil d’août ! L’accueil par Damulis (propriétaire) est très chaleureux, précis et sérieux. La préparation du sejour avec Alexandra, par mail ou l’appli, très précise et sérieuse aussi. Un conseil: louer un bateau à moteur (sans licence) au Diving Center de Damulis, sur le port, et découvrir les plages inaccessibles par voie de terre, dans la baie de Sfakia. Merci pour votre aide et vos bons conseils. Merci beaucoup aussi à Damulis et aussi à Sofia! Notre séjour fut parfait!
Vi har storkost oss! Veldig fint hus.
Huset og eiendommen er fantastisk flott. Vi nyter oppholdet.
Vi har nytt ferien til det fulle! Et nydelig hus og topp oppfølging på alle måter. God sommer videre.
We loved Crete and feel so fortunate to have chosen Villa Zoe. Thank you for your immediate attention to our needs. Your staff is wonderful just like Villa Zoe. Thank you again,
Kathleen and Family
Awesome place. Wouldn’t stay anywhere else.
Hei! Takk for et veldig fint opphold, og en stor takk for din hjelp. Ha en fortsatt fin sommer.
Takker for en fin uke på et flott sted.
Vi har hatt et fantastisk opphold. Topp hus med gangavstand til alt. Til og med været har vært på vår side. Takk for hjelp og support og takk for en hyggelig kveld sammen. Hilser fra resten av gjengen.

Villaferie i ukas @kk.no spalte. Helt til slutt i artikkelen gir greske Alexandra Papamarkaki Isaksen deg sine beste Kreta tips!
“En villaferie gir deg full fleksibilitet og blir som ditt hjem-fra hjemmet i solen. Enten du søker en fredelig landsby retreat eller en villa nær stranden finnes det et fantastisk utvalg av villaer for en ideell ferie. Slik var opplevelsen
Vi booket vår villa Melodie gjennom utleier Almyra.no som er drevet av Alexandra som er halvt gresk og halvt norsk. Det er som i hotellbransjen, man ønsker en kontaktperson før avreise som kan fortelle deg om stedet man kommer til, tilrettelegger ferien og gir deg god informasjon i forkant slik at man føler en trygghet på at man har valgt rett sted for sommerferien! Alexandra er en slik dame! Hun har enormt mye kunnskap om øya Kreta da hun selv bor der deler av året, og legger sjelen sin i at alle som leier en villa hos henne skal få en unik opplevelse. Hun har håndplukket villaer med omhu som er perfekt for barn i alle aldre og ikke minst for store og små familier eller vennepar.
Ved ankomst på Chania flyplass sto Alexandra der med et kjempestort varmt smil og ønsket oss velkommen til Kreta. Tok ikke lang tid før vi fikk vår 7-seter og med en drøy 40 minutters kjøretur ankom vi vårt lille ferieparadis full av forventninger. Vår villa var en romslig bolig over 2 etasjer med flott opparbeidet tomt. Et praktfullt bassengområde med en nydelig utestue med kjøkken og en fantastisk utsikt til sjøen. Villaen hadde 3 soverom og 2 bad, en stor stue og en hems med utgang til takterrassen.

Barna ble ikke bare i ekstase over svømmebassenget, men den store jacuzzien i hagen var mer enn de hadde sett for seg!
Huset ligger i gangavstand til en liten «by» som heter Plaka. Her har de bakeri, dagligvarer, restauranter og til og med et populært Pokemon stop for barna… Ja selv i en fredelig liten landsby på Kreta herjet Pokemonfeberen. Vi la vår elsk på den lokale restauranten Elpis og selv om vi liker å variere på steder å spise, er det noe med det å bli gjenkjent hver kveld av vertskapet. De vet hva du liker, de skjemmer bort barna og de sjenker vin og serverer deg flere retter selv når du ikke har bedt om mer. De vil bare at du har det bra.”
The place was wonderful. The location – perfect. The equipment – you do not need anything more. Everything was nice looked, top quality, clean and comfortable. The best – Alexandra – so kind and helpful, the perfectionist and great person. Loved it! Alexandra is a top host – she took care of everything and you could really feel sha wanted us to feel great not only at the house she rented but generally at Crete during our holiday. She is the perfectionist and a great friend, – everything was just great.

We had a truly wonderful stay in a lovely villa, perfectly located and exactly as described. We would unreservedly recommend this for a family vacation.

Tusen takk for en flott uke i vakre Villa Celestine. Huset sto absolutt til forventningene. Vakker utsikt, lekkert interiør i alle rom, fantastisk takterasse med basseng og en svalende lounge. Kan virkelig anbefales. Monica
This house was above and beyond spectacular!!!! It was spotless with the most beautiful rooftop infinite pool. The location could not have been better. We were directly on the beach with a great restaurant to the left where we ate at often. The restaurant owners little 9yr old boy, George, was just adorable providing us company almost every night. There is also a delicious restaurant to the right called Edam café. Ask for Andrea when you go there. He took such great care of us. We ate there almost every night as well. Directly to the left of this house is an outdoor bar with fantastic live music. Sometimes we just sat on our patio sipped wine and enjoyed the perfect relaxing ambiance. Alexandra was always in contact. She also has a helper named Christina who works in the little gift shop directly to the left of this house. She was there 24/7 if we needed anything whatsoever. Christina’s mom is the house cleaner who always kept everything in mint condition, and her brother is a taxicab driver if we needed any transportation. The washing machine and dishwasher worked really well, the beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms were very modern and high end. This property was even better than the pictures portrayed. We can’t say enough good things about our stay here in Crete. We were totally blown away with the beauty of this home and plan on staying again in the future.

Takk for et strålende opphold på Villa Celestine. Jeg var der en uke i Oktober. Og for en villa. Jeg villa ha reist igjen imorra. For en tak terrasse, utsikt og basseng. Gang avstand til bra resturanter. Og enkelt og kjekt at bussen til Chania gikk rett utenfor døra omtrent, når vi skulle ha litt by liv, lyst på shopping, og for å teste noen anbefalte restauranter. Folka som hjelper til med villaen er vennvill(a)igheten selv. Celestine vi sees igjen!

We had an amazing time at Alexandra’s apartment in Almyrida. The apartment was immaculate, beautifully decorated and really felt like home for the week. It was so peaceful and the view was breathtaking. Almyrida was a perfect holiday location. The town has so many great restaurants and bars, shops for essentials or holiday souvenirs and the beach was never too busy, even in peak season. We preferred the beach itself in the next town along, Kalyves which was just a 10 minute bus ride, although overall preferred the town of Almyrida. The shared pool and the area around it was also pristine, and although there were other people in the neighbouring apartments, it was never busy. In fact we usually had the whole pool to ourselves! Alexandra was a great host, she was quick to respond to our emails, helpful, and friendly. The apartment was cleaned and the sheets and towels changed once during our stay which we really appreciated, although wouldn’t have expected in a week! We really couldn’t fault this holiday. It was absolutely perfect and we would return in a heartbeat! Would also recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in a fabulous location.

Nous avons passé une agréable séjour à Almyrida, station balnéaire qui dispose de belles plages, de restaurants de spécialité à proximité de l’appartement et d’un point de vue fantastique sur la baie de Kalyves. Alexandra nous a bien accueilli, elle est disponible et très à l’écoute. Elle nous a donné ses bons plans (sites à visiter et restaurants). Nous avons passé quelques instants avec elle et cela fut très sympa. L’appartement est spacieux pour 4 personnes, la literie est de bonne qualité, la décoration soignée avec une vue panoramique sur la mer.
August 2016 Fabrice
Logement conforme aux photos et à l’annonce. Très bien situé offrant une vue magnifique sur la côte et la baie. Logement calme (pas de voisins à cette période précise), ceci pouvant expliquer cela.
Sophie, August 2016
Nothing less than perfect! I must admit, I am a frequent user of Airbnb premises, and rarely bother write a response, BUT, this Villa must get what it deserves! as it is by far over and above any other … This is the best place i have ever seen, or ever stayed in. The owner, and the host have gone far out of their way to make us feel at home, down to the last detail. The place actually looks better that the pictures (sounds hard to believe, but it is really better than the pics). the villa is fully equipped, missing absolutely nothing! the entire compound is extremely pampering, quiet, and worth every penny. we will definitely be back there! soon!!
Rafi, August 2016
The villa is luxurious, clean and very comfortable. The views are stunning. The pool is wonderful & just the right temperature. Alexandra and her staff were very helpful. The recommendation of the Emerald restaurant was spot on – a lovely place. Almyrida is lovely.
Jill, July 2016
Hi, The house is beautiful. Vera and her husband met us and gave us a wonderful tour of the home-very welcoming. Otherwise things are great.
Kind regards, Beth & Phil
Hei kjære Alexandra!
Det er vi som skal takk deg for at all planlegging, gjennom Mail og telefoner, ble akkurat slik vi ønsket, og en stor takk for at DU bidro til at vi fikk verdens beste dag sammen med familie & venner. Vi kommer alltid til å husket deg og alt du har gjort for oss som et godt minne. Tiden i Villa Zoe ble perfekt og vi storkoste oss alle dagene og selvfølgelig spesielt på selve bryllupsdagen i Villaen. Alle våre kjære gjester har takket oss for at vi gav dem en eventyrlig opplevelse ved å dra på tur til Mamara, og det hadde heller ikke skjedd hvis det ikke var for DEG! Du har et stort hjerte som virkelig gjør det beste for de som ønsker å bruke din ekspertise. ALT har levd opp til forventningene og kanskje ende litt mer, så tusen hjertelig takk. Vi kommer gjerne tilbake til Kreta en gang og håper virkelig at vi kan ta oss råd til å leie en flott villa ved en annen anledning.
Kontakten håper jeg vi beholder og jeg skal alltid framsnakke ditt varme vesen og alle de flotte villaene du har på Kreta. Om ikke lenge håper jeg bildene fra Andreas kommer også, og da skal jeg sende deg en liten hilsen. Ønsker deg også alt godt videre og en riking god sommer på Kreta og i Norge. Stor klem og hilsen fra Cecilie & Liem.
We had a wonderful time at the villa, thank you again so much for your hospitality! The villa was amazing, everything we were hoping for. We will definitely recommend to others. Take care and all the best. Anisha
Da må vi få takke for en drømmeuke i fantastiske Villa Zoe. Super service og vi hadde vår siste middag på Elpis i Plaka. Helt topp, skulle ha oppdaget den litt før J Kommer veldig gjerne tilbake. Skal hilse fra alle. Mvh, Trine og Tore.
La villa est exactement comme décrite. La piscine est super. Alexandra nous a chaleureusement accueilli, nous a fait savoir qu’elle est a notre disposition 24/7 et nous a donne quel que conseils utiles. Elle a même offre de nous emmener en excursion. L’equipe de nettoyage qui est arriver deux fois pendant la semaine (une pour nettoyer et une pour changer les draps.) est très calme, efficace et serviable. En tout et pour tout, nous somme très satisfait et planifions d’y retourner a la prochaine occasion.
Jenny, August 2016
Excellent stay in a beautiful house in a exceptional location. Alexandra is an extremely welcoming host with a constant attention to detail and service.
Olivier, July 2016
Hi We just wanted to say a special thanks for such a wonderful holiday at the beautiful villa.We were stunned by how incredible the villa was it really was five star! We were blown away with every room having gorgeous views and balconies. The beds were enormous and well equipped with storage. The little touches like sweets breakfast hamper coffee machine and daily surprise gifts were so appreciated. The photos don’t to justice to the beautiful gardens and so many different spots with well positioned chairs to admire the views. The kayaks made our trip so special the children will never forget learning to kayak and the play area. We had such a special meal at the outside dining area which had the best barbecue and pizza oven.
The warmth and kindness of Soula and Dimitri was the icing on the cake! Unforgettable holiday. Thank you so much.

Tusen hjertelig takk for en uforglemmelig og magisk ferieuke på Kreta.
Vi kontaktet deg i fjor høst fordi vi var på jakt etter et sted å feire vår bryllupsuke på Kreta. Du var, helt fra starten av, imøtekommende, behjelpelig og vennlig.
Du foreslo Villa Daphne og Chloe som det perfekte stedet å holde en romantisk og intim bryllupseremoni og jammen tok du rett. Det var en eventyrlig og perfekt bryllupsdag. Den vakre Villahagen med nydelige blomster og sjøutsikt var perfekte omgivelsene til vår seremoni.
Før avreise tok to deg tid til å treffe oss, for å hjelpe oss med alle detaljene rundt den store dagen. Du var også behjelpelig på telefon og mail for å besvare alle våre spørsmål og bekymringer. Du satte oss i kontakt med bryllupsplanleggerne Anna og Natalya fra ”Crete for Love” og restauranteieren Nikos fra Patrelantonis, restauranten som vi holdt bryllupsmiddagen på.
Ved ankomst til Kreta tok du i mot oss på flyplassen med åpne armer. Vi følte oss alle velkommen og ivaretatt hele uken. Videre tok to deg tid og anledning til å planlegge store og små detaljer rundt bryllupsuken vår på Kreta. Du organiserte felles utflukt til sørkysten, anbefalte og bestilte bord til oss på ulike restauranter, bestilte spabehandlinger til Villaen, bestilte bryllupskake og velkomstdrikke, organiserte frisørtime til brud og brudefølge, og hjalp til med å sette sammen en perfekt bryllupsmeny.
Bryllupsuken hadde ikke vært den samme uten din hjelp, støtte og organisering fra start til slutt. Villa Daphne og Chole var det perfekte sted å tilbringe en uke sammen med våre kjære bryllupsgjester.
Uten din hjelp og støtte hadde ikke uken blitt like vellykket og perfekt.
Tusen takk Alexandra, du er fantastisk!!! Vi kommer garantert tilbake =)
Klemmer Anne & Jari
We were 11 members in the family; from baby 1,5 yrs up to grandma and grandpa.The 4 big bedrooms with separate bathrooms; the 2 outdoor swimming pools; the terrace overlooking the Tersanas beach and the very short walk down to this wonderful local beach with the local tavernas was just the vacation experience we wanted to have. The manager was to our service whenever needed.
Tusen takk. Et supert opphold i en fantastisk villa du har funnet til oss.
Per-Arne Villa Vangela
Thanks for your help and recommendations. Please thank Dimitris for us for making us so welcome.
Hope you are well. We had such a lovely holiday in Crete, I am still dreaming about it and the hospitality that both you and the lovely Dimitri showed us was amazing. I so loved the location we had this year, able to swim in the sea at anymoment is amazing. Many thanks, look forward to hearing from you.
Da er vi tilbake i det kalde nord etter et fantastisk opphold på Kreta.
Tusen hjertelig takk, Alexandra, for all hjelp i annledning vårt bryllup i Villa Daphne og Chloe. At du tok deg tid til å treffe oss to ganger før avreise, engasjerte deg i bryllupsforberedelsene og hjalp oss på den store dagen, setter vi utrolig stor pris på.
Daphne og Chloe var det perfekte stedet for oss å ha bryllupsfeiringen. Du fikk rett Alexandra; Det ble enda bedre enn vi hadde sett for oss.
På forhånd var vi spente på hvordan det ville bli å bo 18 personer sammen, men det gikk knirkefritt. Store hus, to varme basseng, en diger park av en hage, direkte tilgang til det varme havet og det herlige utekjøkkenet, gjorde at vi aldri følte at vi gikk oppå hverandre.
Når du plusser på den snille huseieren Dimitris og den alltid smilende vaskedamen Soula, da vet du at du er på rett plass. For et sted!!
Vi må også nevne de utrolige kokkene fra Almyra Chef Service, samt Anna og Natalya fra Crete For Love www.creteforlove.com/ . Takket være disse, og deg, fikk vi en magisk bryllupsfeiring.
Tusen takk for oss og på gjensyn til neste år.
Cecilie og Stian
Hey good morning Alexandra.
We enjoy our stay very much and Dimitri is amazing, if there is anything we need he immidiately fixes it. Thank you.
Best regards Ilana
Vi takker Alexandra hos Almyra for oppholdet. Anbefales på det varmeste.
Hoppende glad Teodor, Ole Helge og Vegard
We are home seating together having dinner, .We all want to thank you again for your hospitality. I feel like I have a new friend in Crete. Hope you didn’t work too hard today.
Hei Alexandra – vi ville bare takke for en uke med kroppslig velvære og estetisk nytelse. Med inntrykkene fra den nydelige hagen, området, huset, og den greske gjestfriheten vil vi nok aldri lande etter en slik uke.
Stor takk og klem fra Britt og Harald
Tusen takk for en fantastisk ferie Alexandra og en minnerik aften i går kveld veldig hyggelig. Du hører fra meg igjen om ikke lenge ang. jubileumstur for selskapet mitt til neste år. Ha en fortsatt nydelig sommer !
Tusen takk for et nydelig opphold på villa Dimitra – fantastisk sted, vi koste oss hele Enebakkgjengen Tusen takk for strålende service og gjestfrihet, <3 <3 <3 klem Rigmor
Henger meg på her. Fantastisk sted og service . Beate
Vi har nå gått gjennom informasjonen under og vil først og fremst takke for den gode service allerede før vi har reist.
Ellers skal vi se mer på den gode informasjonen du har sendt.
Gleder oss masse.
Er nå tilbake i Oslo etter en fantastisk uke på Kreta!! Villa Zoe var alt helt perfekt! Tusen takk for hjelp i forbindelse med både matkurs og frisør. Matkurs: Flott fyr (kokk) med spennende meny!! Han kom presis og leverte veldig bra! Han var tilstede 100% hele tiden for oss og svarte tålmodig på alle spørsmål, inkluderte oss i laging og smaking. Vinen han hadde med var også super!!!! Frisøren, de kan virkelig anbefales!! Super service i lekker salongJ Jeg går mer enn gjerne tilbake.Tusen hjertelig takk igjen! Jeg håper jeg snart får komme tilbake til Villa Zoe og Kreta.
Med vennlig hilsen Eli
Takk for oss, hatt det kjempefint. Hilsen Øyvind.
We had a wonderful time in Crete, and in the lovely villa.
Thank you for your warm and professional attentiveness; we look forward to meeting again in the near future.
Sending best regards, Michal
It was wonderful to meet you and have the opportunity to have a drink with you too.
You seem a wonderful and very interesting person who we are pleased to have connected with. Please do contact us to meet up when you are in London. We will certainly look into this and arrange for next trip. We are all safely back in london now and it’s pouring rain! Missing Crete already, but have magical memories to daydream about for sometime.
Warm regards Aida and Simon
This is easily the nicest villa I’ve ever stayed in and Alexandra helped to make our overall experience brilliant throughout. The photos and descriptions in Airbnb are very accurate. The villa is particularly well-equipped for cooking both inside and out, and in addition to the amazing pool area, there are plenty of other outside spaces and terraces in the grounds. Alexandra was extremely helpful and communicative leading up to the stay, and even arranged airport taxis and a welcome pack for our late arrival. When the cleaners came mid-week, they were very quiet and efficient – completely unobtrusive. I only have positive things to say about my experience throughout at this villa and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it or return myself!
September 2015 Simon, Villa Zoe
Vi leide Villa Imperial 29 juni – 6 juli i år, 6 voksne og 8 barn/tenåringer. En fantastisk villa, sted og service! Vi er kjempefornøyde og hadde ei fantastisk uke og opphold, i villaen, Marathi og Loutraki. Vi kunne svømme over til Loutrakistranden og det er gangavstand til flere flotte strender i Marathi samt den i Loutraki. Vi badet også rett nedenfor villaen, bra å snorkle der. Tusen takk til Alexandra .Vi har hatt et fantastisk opphold! Takk for dine bidrag til at oppholdet ble som det ble.
Takk for hyggelige tekstmeldinger !
Hei! Dette er bare helt fantastisk. Vi storkoser oss . Takk for alt så langt. Stig & Charlotte.
Hei Alexandra. Maten fra Sunset i går var helt perfekt! . Masse deilig mat og vin . Og tusen takk for isdesserten . Snakkes, Marianne .
Was so nice to meet!!! Thanks again for everything, the villa and hospitality!! We will enjoy the wine tonight looking at the sunset dancing tango… Silvana.
Just to let you know, we loved “Villa Daphne”. The property was even better than we had expected. The grounds were really magnificent. Mr. Dimitris was terrific, as was Mrs. Soula, the housekeeper, and Giorgos, the chef. We had a wonderful time. Sorry we couldn’t meet you in person, but we thank you very much for all you did to make our family vacation a smashing success. And, I should mention, we would happily come back to Villa Daphne! Again, many thanks.
Bill and Laurie
Thank you so much for all the wonderful hospitality. This trip has been amazing, and much of that can be attributed to your knowledge of Crete coupled with your passion to share this knowledge with others. You have gone above and beyond, and we are already talking about our next trip back. We certainly hope to see you in London, Norway, Crete or somewhere in between in the near future. Thank you again for all your kindness and help. We really enjoyed meeting you and your friends. Please do drop us a line if and when you come to London, so we can extend the same hospitality.
Thank you, Alexandra.
It was wonderful to meet you in person this evening. We are only sorry that you didn’t stay to drink the beautiful wine (that you brought – thank you again) and eat the enormous Greek breasts with us. Your hospitality has been hugely appreciated. Please stop by to see us for a glass of wine before you leave paradise.
Steffen, Lou, Bill (aka William) and Bronwen
Tusen takk Alexandra for et fantastisk opphold på Villa Thalassa. Du gir dine kunder utrolig god service! Har aldri opplevd noe liknende… Vi ses neste år! Anbefaler alle mine venner å bestille ferie gjennom Almyra! Det var virkelig så flott der som det ser ut på bildene.
Hei. Da er det tid for hjemreise etter en flott ferie på en suveren plass. Takk for god service. God sommer videre. Vi vil se nærmere på bestilling av begge husene til neste sommer, men det tar vi igjen tidlig høst.
Da nyter vi et siste glass vin på terrassen før avreise i morgen. Takk for god service Alexandra! Skal anbefale deg videre til sydenglade venner. Ha en fortsatt fin sommer!
Hei. Vi har det helt supert og har nettopp bestilt mat fra restauranten i Plaka. Var i Kalives i dag og badet i bølgene. Vannet i den lille bukten rett ved oss er helt fantastisk og huset er tipp topp! … Takk for fint opphold på Villa Alaia, så hører du fra oss ang. neste år.
Hei Alexandra! Tusen takk, vi har hatt det helt fantastisk! Nydelig hus og flott service. Vi kommer gjerne tilbake. Håper vi treffes igjen. Fortsatt god sommer.
Hilsen Inger Lise.
Takk for opphold på fantastisk sted. Hils Dimitris og si at vi kommer til å anbefale dette til alle vi kjenner.
Lars Øivind og fam.
Tusen takk for det! Vi har hatt det kjempefint i villa Chloe og vurderer allerede å leie igjen neste år. Vi gleder oss til videre ferie i nydelige Hellas. Mvh G og T.
Kjære Alexandra! Vel hjemme i Norge har vi deilige minner fra oppholdet i villa Daphne. Det var en fantastisk ramme rundt familieferien og alle kjenner at de har hatt en flott feireopplevelse. At eiendommen har stor tomt og mange muligheter for aktiviteter var verdifullt for oss. Det ble en nydelig avslutning i Chania by. Takk for anbefaling av hotell -fantastisk betjening og flotte rom. Vi storkoste oss og det ble et godt døgn for alle. Fant en restaurant for sen lunsj like ved hotellet med langbord og familievennlig betjening. Det ble er skikkelig ” gresk” opplevelse.
Så igjen: takk for formidling av deilig hus( apropo :vi traff hyggelige Dimitri fotball tittende på hotellet) og du skal ikke se bort fra at vi tar kontakt igjen. Fortsatt god sommer, både med jobb og sosialt!
Mvh Kari Hilde
Maten (Almyra Chef Services) var en drøm! Synd man blir så fort mett! Nå har vi vært på stranda et par dager. Nydelig vann. Vi har aldri vært så fornøyd med turen som vi er nå. Huset var midt i blinken. Super vaktmester også, og ikke minst god info og oppfølging fra deg. Takk fra oss alle!
Takk for et fint sted og god oppfølging. Dette kommer vi til å anbefale.
Takk Alexandra for at du tok oss med til et av de absolutt vakreste stedene på denne jord. Å svømme igjennom Marmaragrottene i det krystallklare azurblå vannet var rett og slett epic for å bruke de oppvoksende slekters retorikk. Fantastisk mat og mange flotte folk å dele opplevelsen med – gjorde dette til en helt spesiell dag for oss. Gi en klem til de flotte folkene som kjørte oss på de vakreste veier, til kapteinen som tok oss til Marmara og til kokkene som serverte de flotteste delikatesser og ferskt brød fra den vedfyrt ovnen. Neste gang jeg kommer til Marmara skal jeg titte i resturantens fotoalbum, så skal jeg finne bildene fra juni 2014. Så skal jeg tenke på den dagen. Og så skal jeg nyte det hele en gang til.
Tusen takk og klem fra Holstenene.
Hei Alexandra, vi er nå vel hjemme og svært fornøyd med ferien på Kreta. Takk for god oppfølging. Mvh Aslak.
Tusen takk og god sommer til deg og! Dette har vært en fantastisk ferie! Stedet favnet alle i familien med ro, varme, hvile, aktivitet og gode stunder sammen! Takk for oss, vi kommer til å gjemme gode minner herfra i vårt hjerte og lengte tilbake!
Mvh Kari Hilde og familien.
