The Villa was good value for money and perfectly adequate for us. The village of Pigi was so picturesque, a typical Greek village, all the villagers were most helpful and friendly. The village itself has a bakery, 2 butchers, a more than adequate small supermarket , a chemist , doctors and 2 tavernas, both of which served meals. We didn't hire a car and although it would be beneficial, there was no need to hire a car as the local bus service was quite frequent and enabled us to get out and explore the local area . We also had a lovely stroll to the beach although as the weather was so hot we decided not to walk there everyday. There were several villages and towns close by to explore, I would highly recommend this most beautiful part of the world.
The villa itself has everything needed, washing machine, adequate cooking utensils and a nice patio etc. The pool area was absolutely amazing, with Barbeque area, fridges to keep food and drink cool , absolutely amazing.
The only down side was the next door neighbours dogs constant barking. I mean constant barking !!!!!
Apart from the constant noise of the dog, I wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend it for a beautiful, relaxing holiday.
Absolutely lovely little village fantastic outside space villa needs a little updating I.e cooking facilities, we did struggle with the hot water for showers, it wasnt readily available when we wanted could only have at certain times of day. These things were the only down side villa was large outside area brilliant pool is great. Situated in a lovely little Greek village. Lovely friendly people 10 min drive from reythmno which is brilliant. All in all its a great value for money villa
The villa is situated in a charming village environment. As we were at the villa during the lead up to Easter, there were several services at the nearby church in the morning and evening which we did not find too obtrusive. The rooms all had en-suites which made it easy for our family to be comfortable and the owners went out of their way to ensure everything ran smoothly. The pool area and garden were so lovely, we spent nearly all our time there. With the pool house having a small kitchenette where the owners left our welcome pack which included tea, coffee, jam, marmalade, honey, cake and biscuits as well as daily hard boiled eggs, we felt very well catered for. Although the villa is situated in the friendly village of Pigi, it is only a short drive down to the historic town of Rethymno and the bars, shops and restaurants to suit everyones taste.
The villa was OK but i was disappointed that the pool and villa were not detached. The pool was good but unfortunately we had poor weather and so did not use it much. I think I met the owner on arrival but she did not say a great deal.
The kitchen was dark and poorly equipped. The kettle did not reach boiling point which made the tea taste weird and worried me from the health point of view.
The villa could do with refurbishing and I got the feeling that the family or mother lived there during the winter which would account for all the dusty ornaments. The bedding was very old and worn as were the towels.
A big plus was all the toilets.
It certainly needs updating but I can imagine that if the weather was good this would make a big difference.
Villa Liakos in Pigi was perfect for our family get together with our two adult daughters. The villa was so spacious, cool and very Greek. The pool and garden were perfect,. The evening scents of heady perfume in the garden was divine, the perfect accompaniment to alfresco dining. Pigi has just what you need on holiday, a bakery, butchers and tavernas and a couple of supermarkets. The Feta from Annas was delicious ! The taverna opposite was wonderful, and the lovely Maria so helpful! The taverna by the square was great too, with no set menu- just what they had in the oven that day. All the people we met were so welcoming and helpful.I would recommend hiring a car to make the most of exploring this lovely part of Crete, but also taxis are very reasonable. Plakias was a hop and a skip away with wonderful beaches and restaurants. We also went to Lake Kournas for the day which was amazing and wonderful .
All in all, a wonderful spacious comfortable villa at a very reasonable cost, in a wonderful setting with all the amenities close by. One week just isnt long enough really !!!
