Staying in this villa was the most exciting ever. We spent a lot of time around the pool, had some BBQ's. We went to Panormo and Bali, they are beautifull fishing villages, not far from the villa. The beautifull city of Rethymnon is also nearby via the highway. About 20 minutes by car.
We were there for a week. The villa is excellent for 9 people. Lots of space, full equiped kitchen, nice bedrooms, bathrooms and big swimming pool.
The owner Irini and her parents are very helpfull and friendly people.
You will be very happy to stay there!
I recommend this villa to all my friends.

We stayed at Achlades (little village near Rethymnon) for 7 days. The villa is very nice, quite and pinturesque, sorrounded by olives trees. It's the right place to rest, and the best localization if you want to visit the island,as it is located in the center of Crete. You have very wonderful coves and beaches very close to Achlades. Not too turistic and crowded as other more famous beaches in Crete.
The house is perfect for two families of 4 or 5 members each one, or to go with friends. It's really big, very comfortable, with a fantastic swimming pool, and all the facilities, but the best are the owners, Irini and her parents, really hospitable and helpful. Last day we had a wheel puncture and it was holiday!!! No mechanics available!!!. The father found one for us, and repaired the wheel for free!!! Let me thanks them once again. Europe would be a much better place to live with more people like them.

First of all, I would like to thank Irini and her family for the great hospitality in "Villa Ahlades". They were always there when we needed them, and we did.
The Villa is located in a peaceful village near the city of Rethymno, in the Center - East of Crete. The Villa has very well equipped kitchen, I think there wasn't a single thing we needed and wasn't there for use. The swimming pool is lovely and in the perfect size, not small enough and not big enough. Lots of supermarkets and other shops in 7-10 minutes drive to the nearest village. The grill place is excellent and the BBQ turns out to be great. All nearby supermarkets are very cheap, that's a big plus. The owners of the villa brought us fresh eggs and vegetables in the morning and were very attentive to us.

I think the villa could get a better rating but it needs some basic upgrades to be made first:
1. in a Villa for 10 people, 2 bathrooms aren't enough. We were more than 10 and it was hard to handle. Moreover, there is a flooding problem in both bathrooms, it must be fixed.
2. Wifi - very bad reception . For a place that considers itself luxury, I would expect a better internet package for its guests.
3. I would place a 3rd queen / king size bed in the room on the 1st floor, with a good matrace. The matraces in this place (tried two different beds) were very bad. The sleeping quality is not good in that aspect.
4. Cleaning - Only once in 7 days is not enough, I think it should be at least every 2 days.

Bottom line, I recommend going there in a group of less than 10 people. If the above recommendations will be implemented, it will be a great place to stay in that part of Crete.
