“Beautiful villa with amazing views”
Immaculate villa & gardens which had everything we needed.The bedrooms were lovely and all had aircon. The pool area was private with amazing views. Only a 10 minute drive into Rethymnon. The downstairs shower was quite small but other than that the villa was perfect. Thank you argiro & Nikos for your hospitality :)
“Everything you would hope for in a holiday villa...”
...and more, because argiro and Nikos make you feel at home from the very first day, providing an assortment of local delicacies to whet your appetite for Cretan cuisine. The villa is spotlessly clean and Nikos attends the garden every day. So, if there is something you need, or a recommendation where to go, they can help. The view from the villa is superb and you can spend time just gazing into the distance and the coastline. There is a breeze in the hills and so the heat of the summer is manageable - and there is always shade to find or to relax in the lovely pool. Local supermarkets are a 5 minute drive away, as is the local town and Rethymno is less than 15 minutes - a treasure of a town with many side streets to explore and discover new cafes, shops and restaurants. The villa is extremely comfortable with all the luxuries you look for in a holiday - including wifi, dishwasher and air-conditioning in the bedroom that works!! the location is fantastic and peaceful, although you will need a car and confidence to handle the hillside location of the villa! We had a truly wonderful holiday at alkistis villa and would definitely consider returning the next time we are in Crete.
“Exceptional, Peacefull, Relaxation”
This is the cleanest, most spickspan house we've ever rented for vacation! We are a family of four with a 20 and a 15 year old. Fully airconditioned in all rooms, even though we preferred to rather have windows and doors open during the days and enjoy the continous breeze from the sea. The view down to Rethymnon and the sea from both, the rooftop veranda and the ground level veranda, is breathtaking and ever so soul-refreshing. The villa is fairly high up on a mountain. The owners argiro and Nikos put every effort into making your stay pleasant and memorable. Due to a telephone in the house they can be reached anytime for advice. They show real pride in their villa and Nikos lovingly takes care of the garden, pool and watering the plants daily. When one of the outdoor chair covers ripped through normal wear and tear it was replaced within 24 hours with a smile; that's service! A special mention: the beds are comfortable!! One problem we encountered was the extremely steep driveway. Our rented car (1.3 ltr petrol)got down, but couldn't get back up without help. We returned it and got a car with decent engine power instead (1.4 ltr turbo diesel); plain sailing from there on thanks to the friendly service of Car Rental Crete in Heraklion. Argiro and Nikos are very friendly, open people with lots of heart. Thank you for a lovely holiday!
This Villa lived up to all expectations and more. We pre-hired a car (go Rent a car - a small firm but seemed to be very reliable, other than his sat-nav) and then it was all so easy and special. The owners met us on the main road. The Villa was large, well-fitted out, cool and very clean. 2 bathrooms added to the convenience. The view sitting by the swimming pool looking across the hills to the sea was spectacular. It was splendidly isolated so very quiet, yet only 4 minutes by car to the local supermarket although it was expensive. 8 minutes however took us to the chain supermarket (Lidl) - whilst this meant we were not putting as much hard needed cash into the local economy, it was good enough for our basic food for breakfast and lunch and we could buy local fruit and vegetables elsewhere. At the very bottom of the hill in Platania is a pizza shop that bakes the most amazing take-away pizza made with local feta cheese. And the villa is an easy drive to Rethymnon (15 mins) and also both Heraklion and Chania (less than an hour each) - all 3 towns very touristy but interesting in their own different ways. There are also some lovely drives going along the coast where we stopped for great views, the lake at Kourna and to the south wonderful drives through the mountains. All of this supported by a folder of really useful local information provide by the helpful owners, Argiro and Nikos. We were 2 elderly couples but I can easily envisage having brought my children here when they were younger - they would have loved it - the pool, the space to run around and explore, the touristy towns and the beaches. A couple of tips - the Villa is at the bottom of a steep drive. It was better to park on the road at the top of the drive because driving back up was not good for the car. Secondly, we are vegetarians and found it was best to order a number of starters, especially some of the local dishes, for our main meal - and we enjoyed the free desert in most of the restaurants.
The place is really quietand beautiful. The villa is well furnished and equipped, very clean, gorgeous pool, quiet, great views, private location, everything about alkistis is great. Our holidays were so relaxing we didn't want to leave. The owners are very hospitable and the service was excellent. A true paradise to relax and feel good. I would recommend villa alkistis to anyone. We will return to this villa again as soon as we can!
Nettes, gepflegtes anwesen am Berg mit einem tollen ausblick. Durch die zentrale Lage sind die schönen langen Strände, Tavernen, die altstadt von Rethmion und auch die Schnellstrasse schnell zu erreichen. Die nette familiäre Begrüßung und fürsorgliche Betreuung haben den erholsamen Urlaub abgerundet. ????? ??? ????
“Wonderful house, owners and view!”
Just before the tourist season ended in October 2011, my family decided to go on holiday in Crete. Thanks to argiro and Nikos, their hospitality and excellent care, our vacation was simply wonderful. Minutes after we arrived we felt at home... The house is new and lovely, fully aquipped and has a beautiful view. It is also situated in a very convenient location in Crete, which allows one to take day-trips all over the islland. All this made our holiday relaxing, interesting and very unique.
A beautiful villa with fantastic view.Everywhere was spotless and very comfortable.Argiro & Nikos are wonderful and work very hard. It was lovely to spend warm evenings on the upper terrace watching the moon and the pretty lights of surrounding villages.Very easy getting around from here.Lovely bakery near by.Platanes good for eating, supermarkets etc.We'd definitely come again. A big thank you to argiro and Nikos.
