“Perfect villa”
Reviewed 6 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

What a wonderful place to enjoy a vacation!!! George and his family make you so comfortable in the beautiful villas!!! I highly recommend a stay! Easy access to the highway, ports, and markets! We so enjoyed the meal prepared b George's mother upon arrival! Having groceries already in the villa upon arrival was an added perk! All rooms and beds are comfortable and clean! Highly recommend staying at the villas and enjoy the lovely pool! Can't wait to visit again!

“feeling home”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We, 4 friends out of Belgium, had a wonderful stay in the well equiped and nice decorated (with an eye for detail) villa Myrthia. The hosts were very concerned with our needs and they always did everything to give an answer on a not so common question. Although it is in a village, you get the feeling (how they work with flowers, trees, ...) that you are on the country side, but once you step on the street, you have a bakery, a supermarket with a good variety of products, which is easy. Thanks for everything, flora and company

“Beautiful Home, Great Location, Superb Service !!!!!”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I just returned from a weeks stay here with 3 of my girlfriends. This house is very spacious so there was plenty of room for the 4 of us. This house could comfortably fit 2 families. We arrived late our first evening and had requested dinner be prepared for us. George's mother prepared a wonderful Moussaka dish along with Greek salad and bread (and let's not forget the Raki !!). There was enough Moussaka, that we snacked on leftovers all week and still had some left at the end of our week.
I cannot say enough about the kindness and generosity of George and his family !! He was quick to respond to my numerous emails prior to our arrival. During our stay a couple of my friends decided to ship some items home and George took care of this for us.
This was our first time in Crete, so we were unsure of the best location to stay. This house is very centrally located for easy drives (about an hour) to Iraklion (Heraklion) and Chania. If you are arriving my boat into Rethymno, I would recommend that you pre-arrange a pick up. There are plenty of taxis, but you have to walk a ways unless they are pre-arranged and can pull right up to the boat.
We are planning a return trip to Crete already and will definitely stay here again !!
Thanks again to George and his lovely family for making our vacation even more memorable !

“Fantasic Family Stay!”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have just arrived home from a fantastic 2 week stay at Villa Mytia and totally agree with the previous comments on this site, what a wonderful stay.

From the moment we booked our stay, George and his family have been so helpful and accommodating from helping with our car hire to sending helpful guides and information about the island and local area. We were greeted on arrival for a tour and to taste some amazing greek cooking by George's mother (pre arranged over email). We enjoyed a few meals arranged by George in this way and the family also very generously brought gifts of a yummy dessert and a lovely bottle of wine.

As a party consisting of 2 families with yound children, we found the villa to be spacious and spotlessly clean. We were impressed with the cleaning and change of towels and bedding every 3 days - even beach towels provided were changed. Kitchen well equipped. The photos above do not show the new modern canopy over the eating area which is a lovely addition to the villa.

There is everything you need within walking distance as stated on previous comments. We enjoyed 2 meals in the village square where our children could play and we could enjoy a glass of wine! We also ate out in Rethymnon which is well worth a visit.

It was lovely to spend days at the villa lounging by the pool and letting the children play freely, we did spend a few days at a lovely beach (a recommendation from George) and we made the trip to AquaPlus waterpark which was a brilliant day out!

All in all a fantasitic holiday and we hope to visit again!

“Absolutely Lovely”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We booked this Villa Myrtia as a recommendation from a friend and it did not disappoint - it was lovely, clean and very comfortable. From the moment we made the booking George went out of his way to be helpful and make our stay as easy as possible. He was there to welcome us on arrival and ensured we had everything we needed for a great stay. The Villa itself is in a fab location, a few minutes walk to the local supermarket and bakery. There are also a couple of Taverna's that served excellent home cooked Greek food that we even managed to get our 3 children to eat! Its a short drive to Rethymnon which was really easy to get too as well as a number of gorgeous beaches.

Attention to detail was great with good quality sheets and bedding as well as good supply of towels for both the pool and showering. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots and pans required for cooking.

We stayed for 5 nights and in that time the villa was cleaned and new towels/sheets provided. We all loved it here and cannot recommend it enough - we will most certainly be back next year and would definitely stay for 2 weeks.

I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your time at our villa and that you were totally satisfied with our service, the villa's facilities and location.
The village of Atsipopoulo can meet all the first needs of the guests and Rethymno city is only 10 minutes drive far. We are thrilled that you were happy with the location of the villa.
If visiting Crete in the future we do hope you will consider staying with us again and look very much forward to welcoming you back to our villa.
With my best regards,

“AMAZING”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just arrived back from staying in the villa Myrtia, I can't praise the villa, location,& Crete enough. We all had an amazing time. From contacting George at the start of the booking, he couldn't have been more helpful. He arranged the car hire for us, (which was very reasonable). And helped with all other enquiries we had. When we arrived at the villa he welcomed us with local biscuits, sweets and raki. The villa was immaculate, and everything we had wished for. The first evening we ate in the local taverna. It was very quaint and when the bill came and it was 32€ including wine for 4 of us we couldn't believe it! The house was cleaned every 3 days, and it was so lovely to come back to the villa in the evening and refresh in the poolT traveled around quite a lot visiting some beautiful places, Samaria Gorge, Elafonisi, Balos Bay, Loutro and Skinaria beach to name but a few, and spent many evenings strolling round the narrow streets of Rethymno. We came back one day to find George's mum had made us a cheese cake, it was delicious! On the final day George came to say goodbye and gave us some pictures made by his mother it was so touching.
We have never experienced anything like this before, we will certainly be returning.
Thank you Crete (& George and family) you were amazing!
