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 !!!
“Lovely stay - would recommend in a heartbeat”
Stayed here with friends (one of whom has a son under 9) and just had the best time.
Villa was cool, spacious and comfortable. Pool area and garden was wonderful and we spent nearly all our time there at the detriment of beaches, all Crete has to offer and much more besides.
Areas that are suntraps but also lovely areas of shade - orange and lemon trees and a deep, clean, warm pool.
Village was great, lovely shops, friendly people and all within a few steps of the villa.
Everything was wonderful - we didnt want to leave and would love to stay again.
Internet seemed to be working best in the room with a view over the pool and the poolside itself, rather than the living room - but its not something that took away from the time we had.
Luxury this certainly was not, basic it certainly was! The pool area was delightful but as there were only four, very dilapidated sun loungers not everyone in our group of five could relax at the same time. The sun umbrellas were useless as they were beach umbrellas and therefore had no supporting bases. Had one wishes to use the shower one would have had to move a messy pile of pool toys, beach mats etc. The drawers in the small equipment kitchen were broken and there was not adequate cutlery or crockery to allow everyone to eat at the same time. The ‘villa’ was really a town house attached in various ways to other neighbouring houses. This was very quaint but did not lend itself to real privacy. However the neighbours were friendly and caused little disturbance. The house was separated from the pool area by a walled path so the complex was not completely integrated. The kitchen area was dated, of a poor quality and several of the cupboards had a dank and musty smell. The electric kettle did not boil water so water for tea and coffee had to be heated on the cooker in a casserole pan and ladled in to cups! This casserole pan and a frying pan were the only cooking pots provided, so one cannot state that the kitchen was fully equipped. Crockery and cutlery were minimal and certainly not adequate for than three people. It would be impossible to guess when the oven was last cleaned properly! Many of the items of furniture and ornaments were broken and several of the lights had broken bulbs. The stairs were very dangerous as two different flights converged into the same stairwell at the same place as the exit from the twin bedroom. This area was extremely dark and so a light had to be left on permanently. The shower curtain in the master bedroom was so disgusting that a new one had to be requested. Internet access was sporadic and was only available once the owners had been asked to switch it on!
The owners of the villa were delightful. They did not interfere in any way but made us welcome by putting such things as water melons on pomegranates on the dining table for us and welcoming us on our late arrival with a lovely traditional Cretan buffet. If we asked for anything, they did their best to provide it.
Having identified numerous negative factors about this accommodation I must say that we overcame all the difficulties and, thanks to some exceptionally good weather considering we went in the middle of October, we all had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. As a positive thinking group of people we made fun of the accommodation drawbacks, enjoyed the pool area and had a great time visiting some wonderful places on the island. A car is ESSENTIAL. Having our own transport allowed us to go and see such lovely places as Chania, Rethymno, Knossos and Spinalonga. Crete is a beautiful island. There are numerous excellent tavernas, many of which provide superb food at a very reasonable cost. Shopping is a must!
If the limitations of this property could be minimised it would be a lovely place to send a holiday. Overall, for all its drawbacks, the property was very good value for money.
