“An oasis of tranquility and relaxation with one of the most hospitable villa owners ever.”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I don't usually add reviews after summer holidays but this time I feel I must as I can't praise this highly enough. Villa Lambros exceeded our expectations providing an excellent and extremely well equipped base for the six of us (family and friends) to relax and explore the beautiful and interesting places of the Rethymnon prefecture and further afield of this wonderful island. The location allows good access to beaches, towns and villages on both the North and the South of the island. Nearby Rethymno town is a fantastic place for browsing tourist shops and enjoying a coffee or Raki at one of the many taverns on the quay. There are great rural views from every balcony of the villa.
Dimitris, the owner, and his assistant, came in several times a week to clean the pool (the willow tree beside the pool provides essential shade but does mean the pool needs cleaning more often) and to clean the villa with fresh linen and towels etc. It was unexpected but very nice that he always brought us a small gift whether delicious donuts or tasty ice-creams. He was very happy to recommend local places to eat with Taverna Androulidakis in Gonia (a 15 minute drive) being one of our favourite.
Kostas Vasilakis and his assistant Sayoko made booking and paying for the villa extremely easy with great communication via email throughout and were available by email to answer any queries we had during our stay (yes there are some local supermarkets open on a Sunday).
Obviously you can't please everyone all of the time and some of our party found the mattresses to be a bit hard - but plenty of bedding in the cupboards helped create a soft "topper".
If you are searching for a place to unwind and get away from it all whilst having access to excellent tavernas and pretty villages in rural Crete then this is the villa for you. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to friends and hope we can stay here again in the future.

“Cretan Idyll”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Beautiful villa in good location - close to Rhythemnon, beaches and interesting places to visit . The pool and air conditioning were appreciated in the heat of early September. Our host was generous and welcoming and the villa was spotless and comfortable with seven terraces/balconies so one could always find a quiet spot. The pretty garden had shady trees and had lovely views over the mountains. There were several good tavernas within a short drive and also good supermarkets for all requirements.

“Quiet Crete Countryside in a modern villa”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a lovely break in villa Lambros. The villa has everything you would ever need so it was like being home away from home. Location is fifteen minutes drive from a large sandy beach which has two great taverns. The beach is very quiet as there are no hotels around which we absolutely loved. So if we are looking for a quiet "away from it all" holiday and are a nature lover but like having all modern facilities in the home, this is the place to be. Plenty of wild life around the villa and great mountain views. The town of Rethymnos is also 15 minutes drive with Lidl and many other shops, as well as a fortress, promenade and lots of places to see and to eat. Yet, it is also only 30 minutes drive to the other side of the island, the Syrian Sea. The owners are amazing with their hospitality that we have never met anywhere else in our holiday rentals. Thank you for everything and if we are ever in Crete again we would definitely like to stay in Lambros again. Best wishes and regards from Ireland.

“Beautiful villa in peaceful surroundings!”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Villa Lambros is an excellent place for a relaxing holiday in Crete. You can enjoy the beautiful views, calmness, pool and garden. All you will hear are the sounds of nature.
The villa is very well equipped and spacious. Besides, the owner will take good care of you and the house. During our stay the pool, garden and house were regularly cleaned.

The house is away from the touristic buzz, but within a short drive you've got acces to everything.

We thank the owners and warmly recommend this house to anyone.
