A very comfortable villa with ample space to sleep up to 12 persons. Although only with 2x bathrooms and one en-suite toilet Plenty of seating area both outside and inside with patio areas off of all bedrooms . The pool was smaller than we had expected and the location in a quieter area (apart from the constant barking of dogs) but convenient enough to walk or drive to the nearest town, beach and city of Rethymno

We decided to book Villa Aetos so that we had a large family friendly base as we were getting married in Rethymno mid way through our stay. Quite simply I could not have chosen a better place. Upon arrival we were greeted by Iannis who showed us around the villa. Fresh fruits and vegetables from the adjoining garden, Raki, olive oil and honey were left for us as a welcome gift. You are even allowed to pick your own fruits and vegetables from the garden and gather eggs from the chicken coops during your stay. Fresh lemons each day from one of the three lemon trees was a particular treat. Iannis was at the villa early each morning to water the plants, feed the chickens, tend to the vegetable garden and keep the villa and the pool in top condition. If we needed anything or wanted information on the area Kostas and his team were end the end of the phone. Simply dial a shortcut from the landline and they were there just like a receptionist in a hotel! The owners, who’s house you pass on the drive up to the villa, were cheerful, friendly and always ready with a wave. They even gave us a bottle of wine as a wedding gift upon our departure. Everyone who stayed at the villa had the most amazing time. Even with 11 people in the villa over the wedding weekend it never felt cramped. You can chose to relax by the pool on a sun lounger, hide from the sun under the gazebo, lunch on the terrace or cool down in the sitting room. Every bedroom even has its own balcony. Space will never be a problem. The villa has every thing you could possibly need. They even leave a few tablets for the dishwasher or washing machine to get you started. There have more than enough plates, glasses and cutlery for everyone. When not using the fantastic BBQ and cooking facilities and you fancy someone else cooking for you, a visit to Tavern Poppy is a must. It’s a proper Taverna and mostly frequented by locals. Its a 10 minute walk from the Villa and was a top tip from Iannis. We ended up going the quite a few times. They even catered for a pre-wedding party we had a the villa for 20 people. We asked for some local food and they delivered it straight to the villa! Needless to say the food was amazing with a special mention for the yogurt with either the strawberry or the orange and mandarin compote, it was fantastic. It’s not a question of if we come back but a matter of when!

This is a lovely villa with great views of the coast. We were made to feel very welcome and everyone was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the fruit, local olive oil and honey left for us as well as the fresh eggs given to us when the hens who live near the villa decided to lay them! The villa is accurately described and well equipped. It's about 20 minutes walk down to the coast road where there are shops, tavernas ( we can recommed 'Poppys') and access to the beach. Thanks for a great holiday.

We (10 male friends) had a wonderful time in Kostas villa. Everything was as expected and especially the flexibility for the check in and check out time was fantastic. I would recommend this house for families as well as for groups of friends.

We had a fantastic stay in this villa. The family who own it were very friendly and brought us eggs from their chickens and fruit from their trees in the mornings. Very welcoming. Kostas and his team were very helpful and responsive. Highly recommend staying here.

What a beautiful villa, we loved it! We stayed with two families (4 kids and 4 adults) and we had all a lot of space and privacy. Village and sea on walking distance, nice pool. Very nice people who take care of you (if you want). And: every morning fresh eggs . We would love to come back. I highly recommend this place!
