“A peaceful countryside Villa with an exceptionally welcoming family.”
We stayed here for 5 days mid-point in our month long trip through Greece, and it was one of the nicest places we stayed in. There are three villas; we stayed in the smallest, Villa Maria, which had two bedrooms (with patio), a functional kitchen, living and dining area, bathroom and large patio, with wonderful views over the neighboring valley. Since it was summer, we spent most of our time outside on the patio. The villas are extremely quiet, being about 45 minutes walk to the nearest village. You do need a car, both to get here and to travel out, pick up supplies etc. The villas are within easy driving distance of the north and south coasts, and the amazing mountains of Crete. Meeting the family that own the villas is certainly one of the best parts of staying here. Eva is an amazing cook; don't miss the opportunity of having her cook a meal for you. We arrived here earlier than expected on the 1st of May (which is very much a family day in Greece), and were somewhat concerned that we were disturbing the family. But this was not a problem, in fact we were invited to join the family meal, which was one of the most memorable experiences we had a Greece. A particularly welcoming family. Not to be missed. For birders, when we stayed there was a large flock of bee-eaters on the other side of the road, and griffon vultures circling. Stayed May 2014
“Wunderbar! Gerne wieder”
Wir waren im Juli 2013 bei Stratosvillas in der Villa Fouli mit einem Kind. Wir haben uns derart wohl gefühlt, dass wir in der Herbstferien wiederkommen wollten, was dann leider aufgrund unserer Planung nicht geklappt hat. Die Villa war für uns perfekt, unserer 10-jähriger Sohn wollte überhaupt nicht mehr weg, die Gastfreundlichkeit der Familie ist nicht zu toppen. Der sehr große Pool wird regelmäßig professionell und aufwändig gewartet. Die Zimmer sind im Top-Zustand. Wir werden es auf jeden Fall einrichten alsbald wiederzukommen.
“Our best Greek holiday”
Very friendly and hospitable host family. Very good for family with children. If you look for a quiet and peaceful retreat, but still need to drop the kids sometimes at a beach nearby or in town for shopping - look no further. A beautiful place to enjoy God's creation! Also excellent cooking and generous servings. Almost no need to go out for eating.
“A perfect quiet countryside getaway with lots of hospitality”
We have stayed for two weeks on Villa Fouli for the second time and we've enjoyed every moment of it, talking, dining and singing with our hosts, going to the beach with our 2 year-old daughter, driving to the south for a bit of change. An ideal place to come and relax away of crowds with great hosts.
“A perfect holiday”
Along with my family & friends I've stayed here already twice and will definitely come again. The most quiet, relaxing, naturally beautiful and inspiring spot for me. Just relaxing by the pool or having breakfast on the terrace - it doesn't get much better than this. Eva, Stratos, Fouli and Maria are the best hosts and Eva's cooking is legendary... every visit here is quite simply - A perfect holiday. Jonathan
“Villa fantastica e ospitalità degli Stratos super!!!”
Siamo appena tornati da Creta (io e mio marito cinquantenni) ospiti di nostri amici alloggiati in Villa Stratos una delle tre del gruppo Stratos, oltre a villa Maria e villa Fouli. Che dire ??? Le parole non bastano per descrivere la settimana passata in villa Stratos. Noi viviamo a Cremona e siamo abituati al verde e non solo al cemento delle grandi città, ma la posizione di villa Stratos, il clima (22 gradi al mattino e golfino alla sera, quando in Italia c'era una temperatura sahariana) e soprattutto la splendida accoglienza di tutta la famiglia che si prodiga a non far mancare nulla, alla massima pulizia della casa e della piscina, e non ultima la favolosa cucina di Eva, ottima cuoca cretese, ci hanno permesso di vivere 7 giorni in un paradiso. Il mare è favoloso e le spiagge poco frequentate (tranne ovviamente quelle più famose), sono però raggiungibili solo con la macchina, ma quando si è lì pare di essere in un altro mondo (anche economicamente: ombrellone + 2 lettini = 5 euro al giorno) ... ora giudicate voi se non è da provare ...
“Breathtaking mountainviews and hospitality without comparison!”
We travel a lot and have been fortunate to visit many amazing places in the world. I am form Norway and my husband from London and we travel with our 3 children, age 10, 13 and 20. We have been to several of the Greek Islands, but must admit that we fell in love with Crete and the amazing area Rethymnon. On the practical side, Rethymnon is equally far from the 2 airports on Crete, Chania and Hiraklion. Rethymnon is also the name of the third biggest town on Crete. And Rethymnon is the only town on crete which has its own beach! And it is 10 km long! So if you want to experience the true Crete, not the tourist version, I would strongly recommend that you rent a villa. And Stratos villas has everything you need for a comfortable and luxurious holiday! These villas are immaculate clean, and the cleaning lady change towels, and bedding every third day. In addition the pool is kept clean and tidy for your comfort. On arrival you will be met by the owner, the remarkable Eva and her family. She cooks the most wonderful food which is a reason good enough to come! In the house there will be (free of charge) a bottle of local red wine, 1 bottle of local olive oil, raki, a basket of fresh fruits and fresh bread. In addition the fridge contains milk, juice, vegetables, butter and jam so you do not have to go shopping at once! Rather enjoy the amazing mountain view, listen to the silence, lay on the sun bed reading your book, play in the pool or just relax. Stratos villas is located 15 minutes drive from the town of Rethymnon. On the positive side, that gives you opportunity to explore Crete and the south. We have stayed in villa Fouli 3 summers and every time we drive south. And the south of Crete is amazing! Agia Galini, Matala, Plakias, and many more beautiful beaches and places within a short distance. And when you travel around Crete, you meet the Cretan people. They carry an amazing story and are amongst the healthiest people in the world! Listen, learn and enjoy!
“Warmly and relaxing stay”
The comfort/price rate for 2 persons was really good: spacious, a big terrace with panoramic view Great hospitality of Maria and Eva and... the meal of Eva was delicious.
“true crete. cant wait to visit stratos and eva again”
We visited villa fouli three times over the last 2 years. Before going for the first time we were worried about not being right on the beach - but on the contrary, its the best thing about it. The mountains are amazing, and you dont feel the bad side of crete - busses full of tourists and overpriced 'authentic' food. The villa is perfect - comofrtable, clean, quiet. And of course Eva and the family are amazing - ask fouli to play the guitar for you. A few recommendations if you choose Stratos - episkopi beach is only 10 minutes away and its the best in the region for swimming and eating. go to lake kournas - its great fun for the family and its only 20 minutes from the villa. and the restaurant in front of the gas station is ugly but amazing! 2.5 euro for the best giro you will ever eat. We plan to visit the villa until we die.
“Great Villa, Great View, Great Vacation!”
We came To villa stratos last June for the 2nd time after we were there the summer before. We will probably go for a 3rd time next summer. The view from the balcony is breath taking and relaxing at the same time. It is 10 mins drive from the nice non touristic beach of Episkopi. I could not ask for more from a relaxing getaway...
