3 bedroom Rethymnon region holiday home rental with private pool
September 2017

We had a fantastic 2 weeks at Villa Sofia, partly due to Wall to Wall sunshine and temperatures consistently around 30-35C, but mainly because of the great facilities at the villa and in Prines. The relationship with the owner was very friendly but not intrusive and we took advantage of the additional services including a wonderful local meal cooked by a neighbour and a short voyage in yacht Ariadne out of Rethymno port. The layout of the villa suited our holiday lifestyle and the plunge pool was a huge benefit when returning from a day out in the heat. Two terraces enabled us to find sun or shade at all times of day and the interior remained cool despite the absence of air conditioning and the heat. Good wifi enabled us to keep in touch with friends and family who weren't enjoying the same weather as us ! Appropriate use of the anti-mosquito sprays and plug ins reduced bites significantly. A car is essential and strong nerves are needed to negotiate the local roads and drivers. Gravel routes to some of the best beaches make an older, less pristine, vehicle a benefit ! Having 3 good, but different, tavernas in the village a few minutes walk from the villa, together with a well stocked, "open all hours" store gave us all the opportunity to indulge in local wines and raki. Thank you Manolis

The owner was very friendly and communicative - he was on site to answer all our questions. The property itself was clean and contained all that was necessary for a pleasant and peaceful holiday.

2 bedroom holiday home rental in Crete, Greece, with shared pool
July 2017

Very nice villa, with large swimming pool. The house we had, the closest to the swimming pool (what isn't a problem in termes of noise/intimacy), is clean and well équiped (except a micro wave everything is provided). Many beaches around (5 to 15 minutes by car) were you CAN park very easily. Ian was very kind and helpfull, don't Forget to ask him where the Fish shop is: Nice fresh fish you can have on the barbecue! You definitely need a car, I would advise not to rent through the typical rental sites but ask Ian for greek adresses, much cheaper ( auto-rental.gr...) If interested with boating, rental is possible in mathary With notosmare.com, ir's really worth it !! We ´ll come back !

2 bedroom holiday home rental in Crete, Greece, with shared pool
August 2016

Very nice and comfortable villa in beautifully planted and well maintained gardens. The best pool of any villa I have stayed in. Ian the owner very helpful and friendly. Our stay was slightly spoilt by the wifi which worked only 10% of the time in the week we were there. This was apparently a regular problem but not one due to any fault of the owners, rather the quality of internet service in Crete. Hopefully this problem will be fixed for 2017.

Laurence Family from London, United Kingdom
2 bedroom holiday home to rent in Crete, Greece
July 2016

The villa is surrounded by a very nice and well kept garden. The large pool is surrounded by grass which Ian (the owner) in good English takes great care with his wife and it is very pleasant to sit and cool off in the shade of trees. Ian is always available to help without disturbing. The house equipment is a little too short and when we passed the WIFI worked poorly. The residence entrance is poorly marked and relatively hard to find. The villa is located near Souda, typical small town without tourists and near the well known resort of Hania. Beautiful beaches around but the best require a little car. Overall we recommend.
