Beautiful villa with an amazing pool. It was extremely hot during our stay, so the pool was perfect. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed and it seems like a great spot for families! Everything is as pictured, definitely recommend!

Very nice house!

A great villa, near to beautiful beaches and Rethymno! The villa is very new and well equipped (we stayed there with our little daughter - there was a baby chair and a baby bed), it was clean and the communication with the owner was easy and friendly! We really enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it!

This is a 2 bedroom villa, with bath, shower and wc upstairs, and a second wc with a shower downstairs. Outside is a pool, patio, outdoor shower, BBQ and ample parking. That covers the basics...in essence this is a superbly well equipped villa, quality fittings and furniture. As well as the pool area to sit out on, there is an upstairs balcony for each of the two bedrooms. And a decent kitchen is part of the open plan downstairs. All topped with air conditioning in the downstairs room and each bedroom. The villa is wholly oriented to the east, bar a couple of small windows and a small north facing balcony. This means it catches the morning sun through to about teatime. There's enough space and equipment to conjure shade if the heat gets too much. We enjoyed meeting our owner, and the pool guy and cleaner, all of whom do a good job. The local shop (Just around the corner) has enough stock to keep you going for breakfast and thereafter. If you need more there's other local shops and a Lidl in a few miles. Location is somewhat away from the local centres of activity, so other than the local taverna (which is perfectly fine but has a relatively limited food offer) you will need to travel at least to the next village, and you'll need transport for it. The upside of this is the villa is quiet enough to enjoy the sounds of rural Greece, which includes the buzzards that regularly traverse the skies. On the whole, it's a lovely villa, and for our first time on Crete was a delightful introduction.

After a delayed night flight, a wrong turning and a punctured tyre - we finally arrived to find the owner was still waiting for us with the key and some home made Greek goodies and produce. What fabulous,warm hospitality! It's a sharp turn off the National Road to get to Adele, so it's worth checking the route on Google Earth especially if you are due to arrive in the dark. Everything at the Villa is run efficiently and well: the housekeeper arrives regularly, the pool is cleaned out and we even saw the gardener on our last day. The pool is a welcome addition and there is enough shade surrounding the terrace to provide a welcome relief from the intense summer sun. We enjoyed living amongst the locals and bought locally produced olive oil, bread and fish to cook on the BBQ from the corner shop and mini market just outside the village. Whilst you do need a car, it's not far from the plethora of beaches and bays and other local attractions. The furthest we travelled to was Phaistos and Aghia Triada which we thought were archaelogical gems and we also explored the Armari Valley with its spectacular mountain ranges, natural water springs and scenery, stopping off for lunch at a traditionalTaverna tucked away in one of the mountain villages. Moni Arkadi, was a memorable visit with its turbulent history and we had a memorable lunch at the Faragi mountain Taverna whilst our daughter was kept amused in their garden playground. Rethymnon and Xania are great towns to explore with their shops, ports and architecture. Try a Rethymnon beer too! We had a relaxing summer holiday yet enjoyed exploring this part of this area of Crete. Thank you

Wir durften das neu fertiggestellte Ferienhaus als eine der ersten Familien bewohnen und wurden vom Hausherren mit selbst gebackenem Kuchen und anderen kulinarischen Leckereien empfangen. Die Einrichtung entsprach der Beschreibung voll und ganz. Alles war sauber, die Betten sehr bequem. Die Dachterrasse wurde unser Lieblingsplatz. Pool war perfekt und wurde laufend gereinigt. Einzig ein Auto ist notwendig. Wir werden gerne wieder kommen

Perfekt! Wir waren zu zweit im September 2017 für 2 Wochen hier und es war himmlisch...alles war sauber und ordentlich. Wir wurden vom Eigentümmer mit selbstgemachten Wein, Kuchen und Obst aus eigenem Anbau empfangen. Die beiden Schlafzimmer im Obergeschoss sind klein aber fein...beide mit Einbauschränken , Klimaanlage und TV. Oben gibt es ein Bad mit Wanne und Waschmaschine und eine große Logia. Unten wird man von einem tollen Pool empfangen, rundum mit kleinem Garten und 4 Liegestühlen, großer Tisch mit 6 Stühlen. Im Inneren ein weiteres Duschbad, offene Küche mit fantastischer Ausstattung (Geschirrspülmaschine, großer Kühlschrank mit 3 Gefrierfächern, Kaffeemaschine, Wasserkocher, Mikrowelle und genügend Besteck und Geschirr. 2x wöchentlich wurde der Pool und das Haus gereinigt. Es gab jeweils frische Bettwäsche und ausreichend Handtücher, auch für den Pool!!! Wir kommen wieder!

Stratos Beretis Aphrodite Villa is an amazing place. It is incredibly quiet and relaxing, yet still close to shops and the beach. The local people were friendly and welcomed us into the area. The house is nicely done with lots of little touches that show that the owners have done it with love and care. As the first to stay here we felt honoured, this truly is an amazing villa. Our friends in London have now started looking into this villa as it was special. The pool is amazing and it has a beautiful view that extends all the way to the mountains. We really enjoyed having meals by the pool looking at the view, feeling far away from the stresses of life! Aggleos is also an amazing host. Always available to help with anything you need, from recommending beaches to buying us coal to have a BBQ! And he is very flexible when it comes to meeting you to give you the keys or before you leave. Thank you for picking us up and welcoming us into your home with such amazing treats (the bake goods were yummy!) So, Aphrodite Villa is truly a special place and we left feeling really rested and relaxed....and at peace with the world!

The villa is amazing and was exactly what I wanted for a holiday. The villa has everything it states it does, including all the necessary cutlery, pots, pans, a washing machine, a dishwasher, etc. The swimming pool was very nice and was cleaned a few times during our stay. The villa is very spacious with the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and plenty of seating area both inside and out to eat or have a drink. We particularly enjoyed having breakfast outside near the pool which gave it the true holiday feeling. The villa is everything you could want and more. The only criticism I have of the stay is that the owner came to the villa too often. Whilst it was very much appreciated that he was checking that we were ok and had everything we wanted/needed, too many visits make it uncomfortable and slightly frustrating. During our 7 day stay the owner came to the villa on at least 4 of those days. Perhaps less visits or some notice if he was going to visit rather than turning up out of the blue would be appreciated. It is slightly awkward sitting down to breakfast and having an unannounced visit in the middle of eating. That said, the villa and the holiday were perfect and the owner was very quick to deal with any issues we raised, such as no shower curtain in the downstairs shower, he returned the following morning with a curtain for us. I would definitely recommend this villa for anyone looking for a nice holiday and I will definitely be returning very soon.

Thanks to the owner Aγγελος, but also to Island Crete agency. We knew exactly in which area we wanted to stay and it was in one word "awesome"!

Excellent villa. We stayed there at the end of July. It is fully equipped and very clean. It is very convenient, to do everything and too close to the city of Rethimno. My teenage son and his friend wouldn't leave the pool and preferred staying home than go out. The owner of the Villa was very polite and distinctive. He was very helpful as well with everything we need. The agent that we booked the villa (islandcrete) was the best we have so far cooperated with. We are totally satisfied with our vacation in Crete and hope to go back next year.

If you are looking for great night life, this villa isn't for you, however, if you are looking for a relaxing holiday, this place will suit you to a tee. The villa is in a small village, which has 1 mini market, 1 petrol station and 1 taverna. The villa has all that you need for a relaxing holiday. It has its own swimming pool, which is a fine size for this villa. The rooms are all modern and the beds are comfortable. All in all there is everything you need for a peaceful holiday.
