We have recently returned from a fantastic stay at the Knossos Estate Villas. Our party consisted of 8 adults and 6 children and the Villa Ariadni gave us everything we could have wished for.
The pool and villa were spotlessly clean and maria was always on hand to assist us with anything we needed. Manos kept the outside looking great as well. The views from both villas are amazing and we spent most evenings sitting out watching the sun set with a drink.
Having 6 children under 4 in our party the playground area was a godsend with all equipment safe and of good quality. The pool although unheated was lovely and warm even in June as the weather was great and there was plenty of sunbeds.
We got the Private Chef catering on 3 occasions and each time the food prepared was excellent quality and so much of it. I would highly recommend the BBQ evening cooked by Manos.
Wifi is available throughout internally and externally and is of a good speed. Air conditioning is in all rooms which is required in the hot Cretan weather. The living and kitchen areas are very well appointed and available on both floors to give a bit of privacy where required.
I wouldn’t hesitate in booking again as the villa(s) are beautiful, with excellent views and it was made all the better having such attentive care from Maria & Manos.
Thank you so much for an amazing week
Our family of 8 adults and 6 children had an amazing 11 days at the villa. The villa itself was perfect and the children loved the swimming pool and playground.
Maria and her colleagues really looked after us and made sure we had everything we needed and were always on hand to help us out, which was especially useful when one of the children needed to go to the local hospital.
It’s very close to lovely town of Rethymnon and we enjoyed trips down there for shopping and dinner.
We highly recommend knossos estate and Rethymnon and hope to come back in the near future.
This villa is amazing! We had a lovely familymeeting, 9 adults and 5 childrens from England, Germany and France.
A special thank to Maria, Manos and Anna. They made us feel home and very welcome, they are such kindhearted peoples and i will miss them a lot! Always there for what we needed with a big smile, very professional, the house, pool and surroundings very clean.
Sun and warm every day except one morning, and even though very early in the season we could swim in the pool every day!
The area is very beautyful, loved the old town of Rethymnon.
We had some wonderful walking trips, Crète is simply amazing!! Elafonisi is the most beautiful beach ... a must !! Preveli beach with all the palmtrees is amazing as well.
We stayed for 7 days which is definetly to short!!
We loved every second of our holidays!
Big hug to you Maria, i miss you Marina
My family and I were lucky to spend 2 wonderful weeks at Knossos Estate, we had the left hand villa and it was totally perfect.
We really can't thank Maria, Manos and Anna enough for making sure we had everything we needed for our stay, always on hand but never intrusive, nothing was too much trouble.
The Villa itself was spotlessly clean and huge with breathtaking views of the mountains to the left and the ocean to the front, (we sat on the balcony and experienced the most amazing sunsets!) all this set in a great location for exploring the many gorgeous beaches Crete has to offer.
The pool was huge and set in beautiful gardens, which even has a play area for small children, they really have thought of everything.
Thank you again for your warm hospitality and look forward to seeing you all again, we will defiantly be back!!!!!
We have just got back from a 2 week holiday at Knossos Estate (Pasafai villa)
The villa itself is perfect - spacious and spotlessly clean, the grounds are perfection, a huge pool, play area for the children and breathtaking views with some of the best sunsets we have seen!
Crete is a stunning Island and this villa is a perfect base to explore it from
Huge thanks go to Maria for making us feel so welcome and always being on hand to help with anything, she really goes the extra mile to ensure you are having a great time,
Manos and Anna too are always working tirelessly to ensure the grounds and villa are kept to the highest standards
Thank you all, we can't wait to stay again!!
Lovelly place with a huge pool.
Nice playground in the garden. Safe for kids + great views.
Highly recomended fir families or groups
We stayed at the Villa for one week with Friends (9 adults, 1 child and 2 infants) over the Easter Holidays.
Great villa, with a stunning view and a stone's throw away from Rethymno's center (5m drive).
A real shame we couldn't make the most of the pool due to temperatures being a tad chilly at this time of the year but perfect Base Camp to explore what Crete has to offer, including all amenities you might need.
Special thank you to Maria for being there for our every needs.
Need to come back when it gets warmer!
